I'm trying to avoid spoilers, or hype, even, but I'm hoping there are some characters that are not your typical warrior/mage/rogue archetypes.
One of the things that absolutely kills me about both Warhammer properties is how the wealth of lore is absolutely ignored in most games. I mean, how many 40k Marines vs. Tyrranids games do we need? Where are the Tau, Necrons, Eldaar, etc.? I don't know the regular Warhammer universe all that well, but I remember looking through models and thinking that there were some cool armies out there. Warhammer Quest did an ok job giving us a witch hunter and ogre, but I still felt that a majority of the characters were some variation of warrior/mage/rogue.
