Total War: Warhammer 3 official concept artwork for Khorne Soul Grinders

[Update]: Total War: Warhammer 3's newest preview shows off Grand Cathay and Tzeentch's armies for the very first time.

[Update]: Creative Assembly has now detailed the various improvements and changes coming to battles.

While Total War: Warhammer 3's release date is still nowhere to be seen, Creative Assembly has now released some rather juicy information to help keep us occupied. The information in question contains the full roster details for both Kislev and Khorne armies, alongside brief lore snippets describing each unit and their role. That latter part might not sound significant, but given that some of these units had literally no lore beforehand, it's actually pretty exciting stuff!

When it comes to Khorne's forces, it's pretty much exactly what you would expect - a bunch of demons and war beasts bolstered by hordes of mortal followers and the odd bit of machinery. That said, there is one little surprise hidden within the Khorne roster reveal - the Soul Grinder!

These amalgamations of flesh and machinery were fairly controversial when they were first introduced eons ago, mostly because they look eerily similar to their Warhammer 40k counterpart. As such, seeing them added to the base version of Total War: Warhammer 3 is certainly a bit of a shock. Still, I do look forward to seeing how they'll look on the battlefield!

As for the Kislev roster, that one is a lot more interesting since many of the units were either invented for Total War: Warhammer 3 or heavily updated from their previous incarnations. Expect to see a whole host of hardened warriors backed by ice magic and good ol' fashioned gunpowder, all bound together in the faith in the mighty bear god Ursun. Add to that a copious amount of war bears, and you've got yourself a force that can actually stand up to Chaos, time after time!

Once more information becomes available, ideally alongside another gameplay trailer, I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, I'll leave you with two trailers highlighting some of the units mentioned above. Enjoy!
