I have a problem with Warhammer II. I want to download the free DLC.  But on steam, when I click download it opens the Total War Launcher.
In the game, when I check out the DLCs, it brings me back to Stam but not on the product page.  What kind of joke is this?

Ok so got them working.  I kept "dancing" between in-game and Steam for each free content.  Then I magically get it.

But that Regiments of Renown got me stumped.  It appears that you need to create a new account on some Total War site to get it.  Maybe I'll pass.

I had the same issue with the free dlc just today.

Regiments of Renown I did not have an issue with.

Incidentally, are there any effects to the ultra-campaign by picking up the DLC? (There's two sets.) I mean if you aren't playing pirates, high elves, and/or dark elves.

I did read that the new Pirates of the Vampire Coast will be encountered by all players, playable just for those who pay, of course.

I have enjoyed both but not being a huge fan of the lore, I usually feel a little lost.

I don't know the lore but thought it may be fairly standard fare fantasy stuff, which I do enjoy.

Also don't know the lore but Warhammer I was very polished and fun to play. I'd like to get the second game but I can't beat the first one so.... think I'll wait a bit. Though I was glad to see the price finally coming down a bit.

I haven't won a game yet in the first or second game. Next try is the Vampire Counts. Soon!

That's very encouraging. Too many games are a pushover. I haven't played it yet but spent a good part of an evening getting the dlc's installed. Looks like there are some good mods on the Steam Workshop too.

Gus, do you recommend any mods that are a must have?

Problem is I have used many, many mods and haven't played in a while, so I don't remember.

For the more historical games, mods from Radious are always very good but I don't know if that's the case for the WH games.

Ok, so I loaded up the Mortal Empire campaign and I realize I have no idea of what the hell I'm doing. Sure is a lot of buttons and screens. Maybe the other campaign would be better to start from?
