Maybe, could it be Dawn of War 3 and it is

Relic quite recently has posted a 30 second silent still frame video saying May 3rd 7am pst 3pm gst. Not sure if it is an announcement of a last stand character for DoW2 or for DoW3 preferably it is the latter.

*Update:
And it is Dawn of War 3 here is the trailer.

I wasn't a fan of DoW2 but loved the original/Winter Assault. If DoW3 goes back to the original I'll buy. If not it will be on the bargain bin list.

It's middle ground between the two - has the large armies back plus base building (which is something that really took away from the fluffiness of each race, plus the satisfaction of beating someone - 2's bases just were meh) - but with the elite units of 2. They say you can collect the units and level them up, akin to collecting tabletop figures, but have to select 3 pre-battle. They mentioned they want to do something along the lines of the way heroes are chosen in MOBAs, to counter each other, hero cancelling etc, just arent sure how yet. Heroes are units like Terminators, I guess imperial knights, but also named characters like Gabriel Angelos.

It's certainly colourful

DoW capture points for resources compared to most RTS "you need more vespane gas" resource gathering is what made it one of my favorite games. You had to push and skirmish to win.

I preferred the upgradable capture nodes from DoW1, how they had their own defence weapons etc

The feel of DoW 1, the personalisation of DoW 2 and the scale of Supcom. These are the ingredients which would make a good new fordekay rts.

If you dont like supcom just play on smaller maps.

Edit: I could have said TA but i'm at the peak of my middle age denial.

Double Edit: The inclusion of Titans gives me hope the design team has the same soft spot for Krogoths that I do. But you know, hope is a mistake.

I dont think these Knight Errants are actually classed as Titans though are they? I thought they were basically walkers, larger than dreadnaughts but more comparable to Eldar Wraithlords.

I'd love to see actual massive TItan's on the field, that'd be fucking badass

Been a while since I have looked at the lore, the smallest titan is a warhound which is 3 times the height of the Knights.

Size comparison pic

From left to right, ignoring most of the infantry: Rip Tide, Wraithknight, Imperial Knight, Khorne Lord of Skulls, Stompa, Reaver Titan, Warhound Titan, Another Imperial Knight, Dreadnought, Centurion, Terminator, Space Marine, Space Marine Scout

PS: Wraithknights\Imperial knights are way bigger than the Wraithlords seen in DOW2
