    Does anyone know whether warhammer 40,000 is going to be coming out for mac ever, or if so, when? Because I've played it on friends' computers and it's SO much fun! But I can't find any info on a possible mac port of it...

    It sounds like many people are thoroughly enjoying it. The only things we need to see are good reviews and high sales number to make it a candidate of a Mac port. There was a little buzz about the PC version in the IMG Forum, so if anybody porting houses saw the thread, they probably would see the interest, and perhaps pursue it.

    But, at the moment, there is nothing official.

    Intel CoreDuo 1.83 =

    Warhammer Gold game says it requires P4 2.4GHz or Equal? Will my 1.83GHz CoreDuo in XP work with the Game?

    Core Duo 1.83 > P4 2.4ghz. by a pretty large margin. In fact, I'd put money on a Core Solo 1.83ghz (if they made such a beast) outperforming a P4 2.4ghz. As long as the video card is up to snuff, I'd say you'd be OK.

    Anyways, 40k is pretty fun, but I spent 100's of hours playing Necromunda. It was a mini's game also from Games Workshop that was similar to WH4k in it's move rules, etc., but was squad tactics based. Generally you only played with 6-10 troops on each side, 2 up to even 6 sides could play at a time (although I found more than 3 to be too slow to be fun).

    Each mini was a character, with a name, EXP, skills, wounds, and weapons that carried from game to game. You earned credits to buy more weapons and equipment, got wounds from being hit during a battle, sometimes they died from the wounds, you could recruit new members of your "gang", who gained XP and earned more skills as they battled. It was a blast; and had the bonus of only needing ~8 figures, so you could afford to play :p and also had time to paint each model with detail without devoting your entire life to it!

    I'd love to see a MMORPG/strategy game based on that rule set and world.

    They must be taking about DoW. I can't think of anything else it would be.
