If that's the RTS game then didn't they already do one with Battle March?

Yeah but this is going to be a Total War game so you'll have the meta map and all the research, naval combat, diplomacy & all the other good stuff you get with Total War games

No idea, Creative Assembly signed the deal with GW a few years ago but there was no news until yesterday when an email was leaked. I'm hoping that it's going to be the old Old World, not the new fluff that GW are supposed to be doing, but if it follows all the other TW games then I'd say that all the major factions would be available, Empire TW had 11 playable factions. Probably things like Chaos Dwarves, Kislev, Border Princes and maybe Wood Elves would be AI.

I have a friend who swears by the total war series, and has said for years that the whf world would be a brilliant setting for a game. Fingers crossed for a prosperous marriage :-)
