Warhammer II: Total War - Gotrek & Felix
« on: September 13, 2019, 02:00:15 PM »
I haven't bothered installing WH2 since I got my new rig a couple months ago, but this might nudge me into doing so! 





FAQ can be found here.  Gotrek & Felix are available exclusively via September's print issue of White Dwarf magazine, and then it will be available to the general public for free on Oct. 17 through Total War Access.

Gotrek Gurnisson is one of the legendary Dwarf Slayers, those brooding, taciturn, yet deadly...

...um, I say this as someone who habitually thinks "laconic" means laid back and low-key, not taciturn.

But they both mean "doesn't talk a lot and doesn't raise their voice".

So, not the best description for a character played by BRIAN BLESSED!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

Laconic doesn't refer to someone as being quite, just not very talkative and having a preference for short concise sentences.
Or it means someone who is a Spartan :P

"Or".  >:D


(The classic example is the Spartan reply to Philip of Macedon's threat of what he'd do to them if he invades them: "If".)

Huh.  Apparently Blessed already voiced Gotrek last year in the audio-book Realmslayer.  Given that, combined with him having done voicework for the TW series previously, I suppose it was inevitable that he ended up voicing Gotrek yet again.
