Summary: This is the only game you will need to buy if you plan on getting into Warhammer 2. This is a stand alone game and contains all the armies, no need to buy warhammer 2 or warhammer 2 chaos rising. The models and maps are beautiful. You can select a "leader" unit for some of the units, like the techmarine, apothecary or the force commander. Each one has special powers they can call upon in the game.
Summary: I have over 2000 hours into the Dawn of War 2 series. I can say from experience that this game does involve extensive unit control depending on what race you play. There is no base building but the tactical game play more the makes up for it. It does have an extensive learning curve. One of the reasons why people think the game is unbalanced. There is a few issues though imperial guard heavy weapon teams are broken for professional play.
