Find out how to beat the most difficult campaign missions in this guide to Total War: Warhammer.
Total War: Warhammer is the latest installment in the series of real-time turn-based strategy games from Creative Assembly and SEGA. This game has already proved itself as one of the hardest strategy games on the market.
You can choose from five factions: The Empire, Dwarfs, Greenskins, Vampire Counts, and Chaos Warriors. Each faction has its own corresponding campaign map, where real-time battles take place against other factions and hostile clans.
This guide will give you some important hints on how to win battles during some of the hardest campaigns in the game: Greenskins, Vampires, and Chaos Warriors.
Orks and Goblins struggle the most against Dwarfs, who have so much armor and attack power that they easily bypass the cavalry charges from the side of Greenskins. Another issue is the proper management of economy that can make it hard for you to wage battles on two fronts of north and south, if not addressed properly.
Here are specific steps you need to apply, if you have trouble dealing with Dwarfs. The early game will take a few turns before you can set up your faction in a good position:
After the battle is over, the main Dwarf clan will notice you and send their troops to give you a hug… no, not really, they’ll be slashing you. So take your time to prepare for the next exhausting battle. Here is some general advice:
Vampires may have a few distinct weaknesses, such as a complete lack of ranged troops, but on the other hand, they can be absolutely devastating on the battlefield. That is why in order to succeed in this difficult campaign you need to include more melee units and have a strong focus on magic.
As always, your early turns will require you to make your first essential choices, such as the choice of a leader and which units to build. Here are a few tips for the beginning of the Vampire Counts campaign:
In order to keep succeeding in this campaign, you need to sustain your economic position. This means that you need to conquer as many cities as you can, such as Eschen and Templehof. After that comes the army of Chaos, and this is how you should prepare yourself:
Chaos Warriors are a bit like Vampire Counts – they have some weaknesses, but their unique strengths compensate them in full amount. Out of three available Chaos Lords, you should always pick up Kholek Suneater, as he is practically undefeatable.
However, choosing the right leader is not enough to succeed in the Warriors of Chaos campaign, so here’s how you should approach the rest:
The campaigns will never go as smooth as they should, so always leave room for improvisation. Sometimes the AI can get really aggressive very early in the game, so you shouldn’t worry too much about finishing all the quests in one sitting. Just be patient and carefully calculate your next moves towards final victory.
