"All of the 7 races of wh40k". Cheap marketing. There were far more than 7. And way to go Relic for ruining 2 years of modding for some of us.

Yea. Not only were they in Winter assault the necron mod stopped probably due to the leader of the mod worked for relic. Regardless, cant wait to see the expansion as long as it doesnt end up killing mods again.

It is actually an E3 press release, not a Relic or THQ press release. It is part of the leadup to E3, where more info should be released. Believe me, Relic and THQ know there are more than 7 races, and that was made clear by a THQ member on the Relic News boards.

It was nearly obvious: Necrons as second race. Not bad anyway: there's an entire Galaxy looking forward to kick their shining a***s.

Heheheh. All 7 races. Hmmm....dark eldar, tyranids, Inquisitor, Sisters of Battle, and some HALF-WAY DECENT models for the original 4 races. (Wonder why relic didn't update everything?)

They damn well better include new units!Anyways i think most of the necron units are likely to be designed from sketches and concept art,as without extra units they would be the exact opposite of the tyranids,meaning there'd be too little variety to them and too little to do,forcing players to just spam one or two types of units are resulting in totally OP things to account for tier advancement.

if u want a kick **** mod with more units then i recommend LeftOutUnits mod 1.57. on another note.. has anyone thort that the release dates and timing of the exp packs is just a great way of making more money over a few years rather than give us the whole game at once with all races? maybe im just a sceptic..

Although its not like I already knew that they were going to be the next race. Also it is now safe to say that whatever other race character makes an apearence in Dark Crusade will be in DoW 2RockRockRock

Id doesn't work that way. Necrons have no allies. Chaos and Orks do not ally often, and under a tight set of circumstances if they do. Eldar, Tau and the Imperium don't exactly get on and will only get together if to defeat a common evil (like in Eye of Terror)

I wouldn't be suprised if they would be shooting down mods, but still it doesn't mean we can't enjoy the Tau mod before the expansion is released!

I'm very surprised to see so many shameless demands hurled in the direction of THQ and Epic. Wouldn't it be a safe bet to suppose that they do the best they can to live up to our expectations. Afterall they are WH40k fans themselves just like we are. When designing a game there are thousands of choises to be made and with every choise you make there will be someone saying you should have chosen differently. There's no way they'll be able to please us all. And lets be fair, this is the best fantasy strategy game ever made. Just play the sterile Starwars: Empire at war for a bit and you will appreciate the incredible, intense, mouthwatering batlles of DoW even more. It's not easy what THQ and Epic have done, not easy at all.

Having said all that, I love the Necrons and the Tau. It is strange though to pretend there are only 7 races in WH40K. This has to be slip of the tongue. The Tyranids and the Dark Eldar are two major races in the Warhammer 40k universe. To forget the Tyranids even borders on blasphemy because there's no race more alien, ferocious and destructive in the known universe. The Daemonhunters and the Witchhunters are more like subraces of the space marines I think. Correct me if I'm wrong.

but aren't the witchunters and daemon hunters just another part of the imperium and not a seperate race? So they might add new units to the existing SM and IG but I doubt that they would base a whole new playable army on these.

I could be proven wrong though... be cool if they did.

I feel sorry for the guys you have been working hard on there own mods for these races. Seems to me that THQ can't be assed to do the work themselves and use other peoples ideas. Same happened with the IG on WA.

They r my favorites and I have only heard rumors about them come on people i need answearsAaargh!!!

I read on the Relic forums that this was going to be the last expansion for this DOW, and that the five races in the game already will not get any new units. If this is true then its still going to be cool with 7 races to battle with and a new campaign. I hope there are some new units for all the existing armies, the additions to WA were good enough to add some new flavour to the older armies.

I think the statement of playing all 7 races of 40k is a typo. And earlier someone said the release wasn't made by Relic (correct me if i'm wrong), since they apparently play 40k and would be morons to say there are only 7 races. Like i said its probably a typo.

the best race in the new game will be the necron because they can rebuild them selves and the wraiths can shift throught buildings and other stuff Two Thumbs Up! and the c'tans are the most power full gods. plus the monolith is the most power full tank/ship in the warhammer game (it can telaport men from one to another monolith)RockBeer!

Personally, guys, I think that the Thousands Sons mod and Witchhunters kicks the crap out of Relic's expansions. I'm looking forward to them more than Dark Crusade.

Grovelling apologies for the double post, but is anyone else hoping for a new intro movie for Dark Crusade? I have to say, that the intro already out kicks ass, and it would be sweet with Necrons. Even if they ARE dull.

One: The release was not made by THQ or Relic. It was a slip on the part of a third-party, which is also why they said "All 7 races". Oh, and there are eleven official races: SM, CSM, IG, Ork, Eldar, Tau, Necron, Tyranids, Dark Eldar, Daemonhunters and Witch Hunters.
Two: THey have repeatedly said that adding two new races will result in no new units for existing races. TWO NEW RACES. That's a good reason, IMO.
Three: The reason it is the first to have 7 races is that others, ie: AOE, were the same races with a couple of unique units to set them apart. I mean, the Persians had a war elephant, but still had Hassars and Pikemen. These races hace completely different units, one and all, as well as different play styles.
Four: No amount of speculation will change what will be seen @ E3, so might I suggest "I hope they ____" as opposed to "I bet they will ____".
Lastly, you can bet your **** that if they include a cameo race again, that I or another modder will be shooting off a mini-mod to produce them ASAP! Oh, following my own advice from above, "I hope they have a Dark Eldar Cameo" LOL
Cheers! big grin

eek!man i just read the release w00t but on a different subject if you count deamon hunters and all that as a race why don't they allow you to praise one god of chaos like nurgle or khorne that would be cool a great unclean one that would Rock
one other thing it is kinda sad for those people who were making the tau and necron mods but THQ is HUGE they probably don't know about half the mods in development and even if they did why would they care why let people download somthing that they can do better and make a profit!!! really i dont care who cares what races there are im just happy that there are 2 new races w00t
Keep it Up THQTwo Thumbs Up!

something they can do better and make a profit? have you seen the great mods out there for free such as the steel legion and the still in development witchhunters mod. they look great and beat the hell out of most of relics stuff that you need to buy. its disappointing that the necron mod gave up so quickly when this announcement came, i guess they didnt care much about it in the first place. their monolith looked better then relics tho. i hope the necron foot troops and monolith arent as freakin slow as they are in winter assault.

The problem with larger sophisticated third party mods is and has always been, that most of the time for one reason or another they don't get finished. I like the pro looking Tau mod very much, but I had very little hopes of ever seeing a final release even before the anouncement of THQ/Relic that they were releasing an official Tau mod.
Now at least we can be confident that a finished product will be released this fall.
By the way, I think the Tau team should finish their mod. I understand they are disapointed, but their mod has a large fanbase in the community. It might be lots of fun to have a battle between both Tau races. One could pretend that the modded Tau are some kind of renegade faction. They could even call their mod 'Tau Renegades' or something.

Tau are boring Necrns are boring, whoo they are space marines that dont die first time and aliens with more guns than arnold schwarsennegger. theres nothing that cool about them, yea they will be fun to play against but mods are generally better anyways

Mod community has figured out how to mod the DoW intro, I myself am in charge of the up-and-coming Tau one. Don't expect a fast release, it's A) semi-official and B) we have maybe two people working on it. On the plus side, we'll be throwing a bunch of concept units into the movie (such as a Tau jetbike that apparently became the basis for the sniper drone) since ALF had the good fortune to meet one of the designers for the new Codex. Check out the site and post your ideas into the thread. I'll try and read each one and if I like it, we'll try and integrate it somehow smile So far we've decided the other race would be Khorne (hehe) but this may persuade me to change it to the tin cans...

Anyone seen the official Dark Crusade trailer? Have a good look before you start bashing THQ/Relic. This is going to be an awesome expansion guys. Even those who say they don't like Tau and Necrons will have to admit this looks incredible.
I'm going to have sooooo much fun with this.

Looks pretty good. I wish the trailer was a little longer though. Anyway, I think the idea in this expansion is 'new vs old'. The Tau being the new 'young' race and the necrons being the old 'ancient' enemy. Im definatly gonna buy it.

I think you might be right googlemooglemaximus. I don't expect another expansion on this engine after Dark Crusade, but I don't think they will officially announce it before the release of Dark Crusade though.
