Does /tg/ have a pic of the world map for WHFB? Also, is the Empire in WHFB grimdark, like the Imperium in 40k? I understand that Bretonnia is essentially Karl Marx's nightmare, but how "morally gray" is the Empire? Sorry I am a noob to WHFB, but a veteran of 40k.

Fuck yes, Nurgle

>> No.11252076

This what you wanted?

>> No.11252119

The Empire is pretty progressive and cosmopolitan, as I understand it. If they don't like skaven, orcs and chaos, well, no one can blame them.

>> No.11252120


Is that really the world? A slightly altered globe map?

There is, or used to be, some nudge-and-wink bits in the fluff in the 1st Ed. stuff to the effect that "worlds terraformed by the Slann tend to have a standardized arrangement of continents and oceans, to make the climate more regular and predictable." HURR HURR HURR

>> No.11252243

Thanks a bunch!
That's what I was able to piece together through the little fluff I read. Its a bit refreshing, instead of Herp Derp GRIMDARK.
DOES THAT MEAN...?!?!?!?!

>> No.11252523

Is there a larger version of this, or one marked with cities and geopolitical boundaries?


>> No.11252541

40k is literally just Warhammer in space. The Empire isn't grimdark like the Imperium, the Imperium's grimdark like the Empire.

>> No.11252553

Yes, Noreg LoL

>> No.11252569

Fantasy is on the whole much less Grimdark than 40k. Partially that's scale, but partially it's also the way the universe is. There are established good guys and bad guys.

Um, mind me asking what faction occupies North America?

>> No.11252608


>> No.11252616


Y'know, i don't even remember. The Atlantis expy is Ulthuan, where the Elves be chillin. South America is Lustria which is Lizardmen....

I have no idea actually.

>> No.11252636


Oh right, Naggaroth. Dark elves.

>> No.11252642

dark elves, druchii whatever they are called.

>> No.11252646

I'm located where the broken land is roughly. If I had to go off of lineage then I would be viking/norse/irish/western native american.

A bit akin to picking armies from this, but since I'm in america I'm just curious who occupies the area I'm living currently.

>> No.11252650


The North America proxy is where the Dark Elves are, but I'm pretty sure you can find chaos and other nasty things there as well.

>> No.11252660


dark elves

more questions? i work for gw and fantasy is my favourite system

>> No.11252685

It's grimdark, but not AS grimdark.

>> No.11252686

Ooh dark elves? Specifically the western USA region?

Interesting. I started playing chaos without realizing many of the rough historical references to chaos were taken between american and british relations. (All in good fun, it's a fantasy made of parodies after all)

>> No.11252757

its all dark elves till u get up the very top which is chaos tribes

>> No.11252800

I suppose I'll be dark elfing it.

Wonder if an army full of mostly core units will do alright. (I don't play yet)

>> No.11252909

aim for a 3000pt army now 8th eds here
dark elf spearmen rock take units of forty( ten wide four deep) and if u dont charge they all get to fight with rerolls to hit in the first round

>> No.11252949

Spearmen sound pretty ancient-efficient to me then. Halberds/etc were created far from the americas so I'll see about spearmen.

>> No.11252950

It's basically the world map.

>> No.11253001

So it's GrimDim?

>> No.11253011


Sounds just basic fantasy to me.
