We still don’t know the official release date for Total War: Warhammer III, but there has still been a steady stream of news about the game’s various factions over the last few weeks. However, the reveal of the full roster for the Kislev army has left fans wondering – can one have too many bears?
The word ‘bear’ appears in the Kislev army roster 24 times, with the Gryphon Legion getting the notable characteristic “not riding bears.” Even ignoring the War Bear Riders and the artillery-mounted bear-pulled war sleds, every Legendary Lord character in the faction can have a War Bear as a personal mount. There’s even a giant Elemental bear too that’s ready to crush all under its icy paw.
This rather extreme amount of bears has provoked fierce debate on the Total War subreddit, where fans have mixed opinions on what qualifies too many bears. However, the most prominent view is that developer Creative Assembly did not need to give every Legendary Lord in Kislev a War Bear mount.
