Amazing. Too bad we can't have a truck and soldiers loading the rockets.

yes, i'm glad this isnt that crazy game "face of war" where you need to micromanage the soldiers telling them to interact with the truck, manually move the ammo to their inventory, move them to the tank and manually move the ammo from their inventory into the tank's inventory.
such things make games unplayable.

Splendid work! The firing animation is simply orgasmic! To add something extra to the manticore, how about an upgrade option which allows it to launch chemical warheads for increased effectiveness against infantry? This will only become available after you have researched the chemical weapons research. Could use the same hit FX as a rad launcher or DE corrosion grenade.

Kekoulis My apologies, it's just a suggestion that you could consider. Agreed, i would have never thought to see such an awesome artillery piece to make it into such an old game as this.

This is incredible, but will all doctrines get an endgame monstrosity of their own?

Tleno Define monstrosity.
This is UA m8. :P
The reasoning is to give a bit more flavour to the doctrines but not really too game changing.
For example,yes the Manticore is available to the artillery doctrine but other goodies equally as good are available to others. ;)

Monstrosity as in an extra powerful endgame unit to go together with the passive bonuses.

Tleno I doubt that's going to happen. Artillery doctrine has the manticore, armor doctrine has the hellhammer, airborne has the vendetta (i'm guessing?) and titan doctrine probably reaver titan. Not sure what the infantry doctrine has, possibly bullgryns?

Tleno Nah my guy.The Manticore it is not a monstrosity unit in any way.
Just a way to spice up the tactics in the game.And additional artillery piece if you will in expense for less of the rest(since you pick that doctrine).
The Hellhammer and the Devil Dog are exclusive to tank,yes.

I am thinking to limit something something behind the Titan but seriously you guys,Khoran_Gutsplitter,you want Bullgrins now? >:P

I think we have as is.I was thinking maybe lock the Catachans behind the infantry or the Elysians but that needs more thought and experiment.

It's a tier 4 unit, of course it's going to be powerful, but it's not on the same level as say a deathstrike missile launcher which unlike the manticore is worthy of the "end-game monstrosity" title. I believe that's what Kek means with the maniticore not being a monstrosity.

Kekoulis Bullgryns would make for an excellent no-brainer unit for the infantry doctrine, that's the only reason they should be added, otherwise it's not neccessary. Regardless The IG now has all the units it needs imo. It's time to focus on other factions, especially the Eldar.

Khoran_Gutsplitter Stat wise,this is what I meant for the Manticore.I mean,it is a Tier IV(Imperial Victory)unit.Of course it is going to be strong but not as strong as an actual game ender or a relic unit.

As for the Bullgryns,to be frank,I think for real we are fine now without them.Thety fall under the same category as Gue'Vesa.
Other factions will get their time when the time comes. ;)

I can't believe I actually got it working.
Right now,it is available at tier IV(Imperial Victory) only if the Artillery Doctrine is selected.
Acts pretty much like how you expect it.
Enjoys. :3
