Won the long campaign in Total War: Warhammer with the Vampire Courts faction.
I wasn't too fond of the TW series in the past but I like the Warhammer universe so I decided to give this a go. And I gotta say, the fantasy setting really breathed new life into the stale TW formular. Hero units, RPG elements, magic spells, unique and very varried unit types that really break out of the old "infantry, bowmen, pikemen, cavalry" pattern of the historical games. And the factions behave very differently on the global scale too. Fighting against other Undead and humans is like traditional warfare while orks and chaos forces come at you in raids and may lead to untypical, temporary alliances to stem the tides.
I'll definitely play the game again some time with another faction (Gimme Seraphon DLC plox. I need my warlords to ride onto the battlefield on tyrannosaurues).
