Im a big fan of WitE, and while playing the thought occurred to me how awesome it would be to have a campaign set around the Ork wars for Armageddon. Is it possible to set something like this up? I know you can do custom maps, but would the units be possible to do?

You would have to come up with the unit stats on your own. Not familiar with Warhammer but it looks to be fairly popular.

One of the big questions I think heís asking is how hard is it to create new units from scratch. Iím brand new and have no idea but Iím sure plenty of people here do. Iím wondering that myself.

17.3.3 in the manual gives a unit creation example.

Yes, it's "possible".

Basically you're talking about having to create a whole new .eqp file. It's doable but difficult and time-consuming. I recommend designing all your equipments on a speadsheet first.

And once you've designed a new .eqp file, then you have to design the map along with everything else to create a complete scenario. Good luck.

This is incorrect. I know Lord Vindicare used the word "units", but he wasn't mainly talking about units in the TOAW sense.

There are 7 races in W40k--Human, Chaos, Eldar, Tyranid, Tau, Necron, and Ork. And they all use some combination of "magic" and "high-tech" weapons. So, that means he's going to have to get into the .eqp database and make some serious modifications.

It's only after he's done all that work on creating a whole new .eqp file that he'll be able to create "units" (according to manual 17.3.3) in the TOAW sense.

Personally, I don't think TOAW is well suited (and probably not suited at all) to achieve what he wants.

His question was OT and had nothing to do with W40k (as I understood it). It was just a newbie question about creating units.

Wow. You never cease to amaze me. His thread title is: "Feasibility of making a Warhammer 40k scenario?"

In his first sentence: "...thought occurred to me how awesome it would be to have a campaign set around the Ork wars for Armageddon."

His second sentence: "Is it possible to set something like this up?"

So far his entire post is talking about setting up a W40k scenario/campaign. So far, you have completely misunderstood what he is asking.

Now his third sentence: "I know you can do custom maps, but would the units be possible to do?"

First he mentions 'custom' maps. Right there should give you a clue what he wants if you knew how to parse a sentence. When he asks, "...would the units be possible to do?", he is NOT asking how to create units. He is asking if it would be possible to create custom units for a W40k scenario/campaign.

Sigh.

That was "Lord_Vindicare. I was replying to Xenomorph.

Well, blow me down! Looks like both Curtis and I are partially correct.

Xenomorph's first sentence missed Lord Vindicare's original intent. Lord Vindicare wasn't interested in 17.3.3. He was interested in the feasibility of inventing a W40k scenario from the bottom up.

Xenomorph's remaining sentences were about general TOAW unit-creation (17.3.3).

I responded (correctly) to Xenomorph's first sentence and Curtis responded (correctly) to Xenomorph's remaining sentences. All is well.
