If you’ve missed out on Relic Entertainment’s delightful ensemble of real time strategy games, you’re in luck as the latest weekly Humble Bundle let’s you, assuming you’re insanely frugal, get your hands on a selection of their best games. For the low low price of entry of less than a cup of coffee, you get for your money the following:

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Game of the Year Edition
Company of Heroes 2 – The Western Front Armies: Oberkommando West

Well, they did say the Jusco sales were hell…

Dawn of War II is still a squad-based RTS but with more RPG-esque elements in the single player campaign

plus –
Company of Heroes 2 soundtrack
digital artbooks for Space Marine, Company of Heroes and Dawn of War.1 and 2

If you chunk out and beat the average price which is, for now USD6.68, you can get:

Company of Heroes 2
Company of Heroes 2 – The Western Front Armies: US Forces
Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War II: Retribution
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

If you want tough- if exorbitantly expensive – infantrymen and ridiculously good – albeit insanely overpriced – heavy tanks that make enemies wet their pants in terror? The Oberkommando West is your go-to faction in Company of Heroes 2

If you’re feeling generous and have a bit more cash to spare, you can hash out USD15 and get all the the above and the mini campaign Company of Heroes 2 – Ardennes Assault. Feeling magnanimous? You can pay US$30 and get everything including a Relic T-shirt that has an image of cut-out sprue with some of their most famous games depicted as miniatures on it.

While the deal looks good – there are some caveats. The Dawn of War 1 package you get is just that – the original campaign without any of the additional races so you’ll just get the original Space Marine campaign and full multiplayer with Orks, Eldar, Space Marines and the forces of Chaos. Ditto for Dawn of War 2 as you only get the Space Marine campaign in it starring the Blood Raven chapter’s equivalent of Commander Vanilla Ice with the funky hairdo.

Space Marine is the odd game out of the bunch in this Humble Bundle and is a visceral third-person hack-em-up with you as a Space Marine captain versus a horde of Orks

The Oberkommando West package does offer multiplayer in Company of Heroes 2 with other factions though you do not have a campaign to go with it. You’re also only stuck with the Oberkommando West as a playable faction unless you ante up and pay for the basic Company of Heroes 2 game in the second tier which also unlocks the US Armies as a playable faction as a bundled expansion pack. The Company of Heroes Complete Edition fortunately comes with the original game and its expansion packs Tales of Valour and Opposing Fronts.

All in all, not a bad deal if you haven’t played any of the original games before. You better hurry though – it’s on only for the next 96 or so hours.
