Has anyone played Winter Assault yet? Do i need to get the original Dawn of War as well to get alot of playability or will Winter Assault be enough?

I have my way that works well for me, but a guy I LAN with does it a completely different way and we both progress at about the same rate. About all I can tell you is, try to wipe out all your opponents before anyone gets to the super-techs, which are available once you have researched everything at the library. Once two opponents both have the super-tech that allows you to produce units as fast as you can click them, you can easily wind up at a standstill. Your citizens are producing resources so fast at that point you're unlikely to run out no matter how fast you click up new units, so you wind up with massive army vs. massive army with unlimited reserves on both ends. It's pretty much pointless to play past that point.
I still like Starcraft best, even though I pretty much suck at it My second favorite is Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds with the Clone Campaigns add-on. I'm quite a bit better at that one
