Those blessed with early access to Total War: Warhammer III have revealed an epic way to cheese the game’s mechanic in order to level up their lord to as high a level as they please in just one turn. This little-known cheese also exists in Total War: Warhammer II. The reason it was little known was because the opportunity to perform said cheese came about very rarely, and a player, in most cases, would have had to spend all day doing it in order to unlock their lord’s good skills.

The Poxmakers of Nurgle, led by Ku’Gath Plaguefather, are a defensive, tanky faction. They have few missile units and none of those will trade well with ranged units from more missile-focused armies. They do have a ton of hitpoints and defense, as well as various healing abilities allowing them to soak up a lot of damage, but they are also very slow, giving the enemy plenty of time to deal out that damage. Nurgle magic is good, but not excellent. It’s a bit more expensive and a bit less effective than other lores of magic. So while Nurgle is amazing at taking on melee focused armies and just outlasting them, his factions are probably more vulnerable to ranged attacks and magic than any other race in the game. But they make up for this (somewhat) with a very fast recovery time
The forces of Chaos didn’t get a lot of love through most of Total War: Warhammer II’s lifespan. Two of the factions were hoard factions and one faction had to play as a hoard faction without a hoard’s mobile recruitment capabilities. Creative Assembly finally showed Chaos some love with the Beastmen update, introducing The Slaughterhorn Tribe and new mechanics which turned a nearly unplayable faction into arguably the best. But as for Warriors of Chaos and Norsca, well…<
A user on r/TotalWar posted a screen grab which he says shows the nineth legendary lord for Total War: Warhammer 3: a demon prince with a fully customizable appearance. Information from Reddit is always sus, but the user posted a very convincing screen grab which appeared to show the legendary lord with all of his options for customization.
The great and terrible Cheese Lord of Total War made the announcement during his Clan Eshin Vortex Livestream on Dec. 23. After nine years on YouTube and with a following of almost 400,000 Total War: Warhammer II fans, Legend of Total War plans to retire. At least in terms of live streaming.
