Warhammer Battle March

It's really less of a "march" and more of saunter. Or a mosey.



I am not angry at you.

Nice Court Jester reference. Danny Kaye FTW!

Hey, the voice reading the scrolling text during the Chapter One portion, I'm pretty sure it was Rhinox from Beast Wars. Sounds like him at least...

I'm so down with that plan.

I don't actually own a Delorean...

I was just going to say that. Couldn't place it at first, but pretty sure it is him. Really sounds like him. Couldn't find an entry on imdb or wikipedia, though.

A Danny Kaye reference?! Holy crap, that was awesome!

Why they felt the need to repeat themselves in the intro with both the narration AND the later text scroll, I would like to know.

But, it was a very nice tower.

Either I'm watching not enough Warhammer videos, but do a lot of them have the walking army that get's ambushed, then slaughtered, then something big and flashy at the end..., and I'm including Warhammer 40,000 too.

Hmm, this may require some investigation..., if I can find the time (boots up Dragon Quest 4 and forgets what I was on about... OH, mini medal...)

good guys getting ambushed by bad guys, then more awesome good guys coming to the rescue, before being attacked by even more insurmountable enemies is a pretty common way of introducing the principle conflict in an exciting way, so yes.

Newsflash, people who develop stories for warhammer games lack imagination

Battle March!? Why does March get all the action? I thought April was the cruellest month?

Still, based on this analogy, I'm guessing it would be Warhammer Recrimination and War Crimes Tribunal April.

Doesn't quite roll off the tongue.
