WARHAMMER: THE GAME OF FANTASY BATTLES
391766a.jpg


Aren't Toy Soldiers for Nerds?

Yeah, but nerds have money and toy soldiers are more awesome than most other things you can waste your money on. Warhammer refers to a fantasy setting and a number of distinct tabletop and computer games. This thread is concerned with the original, a tabletop miniatures wargame.


Game Information
Warhammer: The Game of Fantasy Battles, formerly Warhammer Fantasy Battle and often abbreviated to Warhammer, is a tabletop wargame created by Games Workshop and the origin of the Warhammer Fantasy setting.

The game is played with 'regiments' of fantasy miniatures. It uses stock fantasy races such as humans, elves, dwarfs, undead, orcs, goblins, vampires, as well as some more unusual types such as lizardmen, skaven, etc. Each race has its own unique strengths and flaws; Wood Elves, for example, have some of the most powerful archers in the game but have poor overall defense.

Since first appearing in 1983, Warhammer has been periodically updated and re-released with changes to the gaming system and army lists. The current official version is the seventh edition, released on 9 September 2006.

Games Workshop wrote:
In a nutshell, each player collects an army of Citadel miniatures. Then, using the Warhammer rulebook as a guideline, they fight epic battles against their fellow generals. Dice (like you'd find in almost any board game) are used to determine success and failure: to decide whether an arrow hits its target, or whether a magical power works, for example. Each game is played, not on a regular 'board' but in a special gaming area where models are not confined to 'squares' but are free to move as their controller wishes. Because Warhammer is not played on a set game board, tape measures or rulers are used to see how far a miniature can move - a horse can run faster than a stumpy-legged Dwarf, after all.


Setting

The Warhammer story, or background, is vast. It begins tens of thousands of years before the current day with the Old Ones: beings of vast power that sailed between worlds on a sea of infinite potential (known as the Warp, Aethyr, or Realm of Chaos). Armed with incomprehensible techno-magicks and knowledge, the Old Ones raised the races of the Warhammer World from barbarism, teaching elf and dwarf how to draw upon the Realm of Chaos to shape extra-dimensional potential into physical forms… or magic, and bestowing upon them the joys of enlightened civilization. This golden age ended too soon, however, as the Old Ones were exterminated or driven away by things from the Aethyr: the daemons of Chaos and Ruinous Powers native to that Realm. Given form and purpose by the Warp-reflected flaws of mortals, these daemons invaded the Warhammer World, ending the age of Law and advancement brought about by the Old Ones. Many millennia later, the children of the Old Ones continue the battle against Chaos.

It is important to note that there are many, varied, implementations of Warhammer lore; none are more "right" or "official" than others. To put it quite simply, according to GW: THERE IS NO WARHAMMER CANON. Players are free to pick, choose, and research the bits they like.

White Dwarf bit on "canon":
"The Background exists as a context for the games that people play. Despite the occasional event, the background was never intended as an ongoing narrative that would be constantly updated. The back story presents questions, enigmas, problems, and conflicts. Gamers explore and solve these issues by playing games and developing armies. In short, the background provides the beginning, but the players provide the end.

What is Cypher up to? Well, he's up to whatever you need him to be up to for your games and campaigns. What does the cult mechanicus have to do with the dragon? Whatever you want that relationship to be.

The background should be like Schrödinger's Cat - Nothing is defined until the players look into the box by playing games and determining the outcome for themselves. Backgrounds should be full of possibilities to be exploited and expanded by players, not answers that limit the potential of the game and its setting."

WHERE DID GAMES WORKSHOP COME UP WITH THIS STUFF?

Warhammer's imagery and style are influenced heavily by gritty, classic fantasy authors, such as Michael Moorcock, Robert E. Howard, and H.P. Lovecraft, as well as real-world history and a bit of Tolkien. Designers also list influences such as Terry Gilliam, Black Adder, and Monty Python. The Warhammer world is a playground-like amalgam of everything from Napoleonic gun lines, to sanity-blasting tentacled horrors, to halfings and their giant cocks (depictions of a large rooster that serves as a provincial symbol for the little folk). Those interested in learning more might be urged to pick up some of these older books; Warhammer's roots are clearly evident in Conan, Elric, and Martin Luther.


THE WARHAMMER WORLD
The unnamed (to its inhabitants) Warhammer world roughly resembles our own. Maps can be found here. At the "heart" of the known setting is the Old World, analogous to Earth's Europe. Here one finds the human nations of the Empire, Bretonnia, Kislev, brutal Nosrca, Tilea, and Estalia as well as the remnants of the Dwarfs' ancient empire beneath the mountains. Scattered pockets of wood elves (both civilized and less so…) share lands with the Empire and Bretonnia. To the south, past the rogue settlements of the Border Princes and orc-infested Badlands, lie trackless deserts. Cut through by the great River Mortis, the ancient, dusty realm of Nehekkarha lies not-as-silent as it should be, duly earning its title as the Land of the Dead. Past here, one finds the mysterious human nation of Araby, rife with proscribed cults and unknown magic, with the dark jungles of the Southlands engulfing the rest of the southern continent. Nothing but sun-mad orcs and the remains of the Old Ones' world live here.

To the east lie the dead plains of the Dark Lands, choked with the fumes of Chaos Dwarf industry. Yet further east, in the Mountains of Mourn, are the Ogre Kingdoms. These inhospitable vaults are dotted with the scattered ruins of forgotten civilizations and shaggy prehistoric beasts, pierced in the south by the Silver Road, the sole not-so-safe route between the lands of the Old World and mysterious Far East. Of the kingdoms of Ind, Cathay, and Nippon little is known; other than that the presence of Chaos.

In the middle of the Great Ocean hides Ulthuan, the last great holding of the Asur, first and favorite children of the Old Ones. This magic and mist enshrouded isle contains the kingdoms of the High Elves, including mystical Avelorn and stately Eataine; recently opened to outsiders by the Phoenix King Finubar. Unknown to most of the Warhammer world, Ulthuan is of critical importance. In ancient times, the elves created a vortex of Chaos energy, woven of the structure of the island itself. This vortex drained the Chaos-stuff feeding daemonic legions after the fall of the Old Ones, allowing the elves to fight back and forestall the end of the world. Were this vortex to ever fail, Ulthuan would sink beneath the waves, heralding the final invasion of Chaos.

West of Ulthuan one finds the brooding forests and icy mountains of Naggaroth, the Land of Chill. Now refuge of the Druchii, exiled for millennia from Ulthuan, this is a land as cruel as its inhabitants. To the south is fabled Lustria, where the seat of the Old Ones lies rotting in the jungles. Overseen by things blindly following the edicts of the lost Old Ones, many attempt to enter these jungles to secure the gold and riches within. A few even make it back.

Finally, at the very ends of the Warhammer world lie madness and infinity. The collapsed interdimensional gates of the Old Ones spill Aethyr into the material, and thoughts of mortals into the Realm of Chaos. Surrounding the northern pole gate are the Chaos Wastes, lands of blended Warp and Material, realms of madness, eternal war, and the whims of the Chaos Gods. No one can leave this place entirely untouched by Chaos.



Armies: Who's killin' who Information Stolen From GW’s Site.
Beastmen: Within the dark heart of the twisted and dangerous forests of the Old World dwell hordes of Beastmen, true children of Chaos. Preying on the weak and striking without warning, the Beastmen are a plague on the civilised world, murdering and slaughtering with abandon.

Brettonia: The Knights of Bretonnia are renowned for their skill at arms, their bravery and chivalry. A Bretonnian army is an impressive sight; ranks of knights with fluttering pennants adorned with personal heraldry, backed up with scores of filthy, low born peasants.

Daemons of Chaos: The Daemons of Chaos are warlike fragments of divine will loosed upon the world. Blasphemous abominations drawing raw power from the Chaos Gods themselves, they are the ruination of civilisation.

Dark Elves: Cold and heartless, the Dark Elves launch terrible raids on the lands of the Warhammer world, enslaving thousands and burning civilizations to the ground. Every day the Dark Hosts of Naggaroth sacrifice hundreds of souls on the altars of the Lord of Murder.

Dwarfs: The Dwarfs are tenacious and determined warriors with unparalleled weapons, created by their Runesmiths, they defend their holds from Orcs and Skaven. Remembering every affront, Dwarfs miss no opportunity to settle grudges with the edge of an axe

The Empire: Since its founding the Empire has endured terrible invasions. Through years of bloodshed, this land of Men has stood fast through faith and steel, its tireless citizen soldiers and valiant heroes, surviving against the innumerable foes that assail it from all sides.

High Elves: The armies of the High Elves are glittering hosts of steadfast spearmen, deadly archers and proud cavalry. Exceptionally skilled warriors, the Elves are led by mages who are masters of magic and heroes who command mighty Dragons of days past.

Lizardmen: Long before the rise of Elves, Dwarfs or Men, the Lizardmen existed deep in the jungles of Lustria. A dangerous civilization of hulking reptilian warriors and gargantuan monsters, led by the bloated Slann, they seek to restore order to the world and will mercilessly punish any who stand in their way.

Ogre Kingdoms: Far to the east of the Old World lie the savage Ogre Kingdoms, a land of eating and fighting. A single Ogre, with his massive frame and boulder-like gut, has enough brute strength to sack a village and an army of such monstrous warriors, the power to destroy empires.

Orcs & Goblins: Orcs and Goblins are the scourge of the Warhammer world, an unending tide of ferocious raiders trampling a swathe of destruction across the land. Orcs and Goblins are angry creatures that live to fight, their only goal is to rampage and slaughter.

Skaven: The Skaven are a race of evil rat-men that fester in the dark places of the world. Eternally scheming and plotting their races ascendancy. Skaven March to battle in great hordes, swarming towards the foe in a mass of frenzied fur and black-clad assassins.

Tomb Kings: The ancient Kings of Nehekhara march forth from their tombs to seek vengeance on the world. Loyal even in death, the armies of the Tomb Kings march with them, ensuring ranks of gleaming bone, with bronze and gold, will be the last sight of many a foe.

Vampire Counts: The Vampire Counts are a perilous threat to the Old World. Stronger, tougher and faster than any mortal, Vampires are deadly foes that summon Undead hordes to wage war upon the living

Warriors of Chaos: From the far north come the legions of Chaos, led by mighty champions of the Dark Gods. Raised in battle, these great warriors fight for glory and the favour of their gods, seeking immortality and everlasting power.

Wood Elves: The Wood Elves of Athel Loren are mysterious, secretive beings. Merciless with those who enter their realm, they are masters of ambush and the greatest archers in the world. In war they unleash the full fury of the forest, as Elves fight alongside Forest Spirits

    I want to try and be a bit more active here, getting back in to fantasy quite fanatically with my night goblins ;)

    Although past me has left one hell of a clean up job paint work wise. Im no michelangelo but my table top standard has come on leeps and bounds. Will post pictures in the coming days to get some tips from any pro painters kicking around.

    Im also decided to add a few orcs to my night goblin army and make it a truely Orc and Goblin army. Black Orcs are going in for a hammer unit and I really want a large Wyvern, purely for awesome factor. How does it fair in games? Bare in mind I mostly play friendlys in clubs or at home with mates.

    At some point I will finish painting all of my TMCs, but today is not that point. I wonder how much more painting I'd get done if I stopped wasting so much time at the gym.

    Of course, that balances out by how much longer I might live to continue painting by not dying an ignominiously early death due to terminal lard-heart.

    Speaking of which... I was toying with the idea of getting a Cygor for friendly games. Are they just overpriced for competitive tournament play, or are they too overpriced to be fielded in any situation?

    They're overpriced compared to similar creatures in other armies, especially the DE war hydra, and no one would take them in a tournament, but I don't believe simply having them in a lst is crippling.

    I've found the vast majority of the time The Internet considers something horrible and overpriced, it's not. Maybe incrementally less efficient than another choice, maybe worse against a really good choice, but in regular games that generally doesn't mean a thing. Unless your opponent is a dick and takes three Hydras or something.

    The trick with Warhammer: GW assumes you'll take variety over repeating choices. Taking one slightly sub-par thing won't hurt you, just as having one overpowered thing will only impact too much. If your friendly games stick to variety and stuff that looks cool, balance weirdness is less likely to impact.

    See, the problem wit the beastmen monsters is that they are based on the Giant template: which is unfortunate because GW thinks the basic giant is already "discounted" in points terms because lolrandom, so when they made non random giants, they made them cost Giant++ points. Which miscalculation is further compounded in the view of teh internet because the echo chamber says the basic Giant is overcosted already.

    Im up against Brets and WoC next month. Im in the process of putting together my first 2.5k list in years. Please keep in mind this isnt a comp list, its mates playing. So swinging both ways, if its too "That looks unfun to play against" thats just as important to know as "that wont work because..."

    On that note:
    Lord
    B. Orc Warboss - Sword of Quarrel (+2A), Enchanted Shield, Talis of Pres (4+ Ward)

    Hero
    B Orc Big Boss - BSB, Arm of Dest (4+ Ward)
    N Goblin Shaman - Level 2, Dispel Scroll
    N Goblin Shaman - Level 2

    Core
    N Goblin (50) - Music, Standard, Nets , Fanatic x 1
    N Goblin (50) - Music, Standard, Nets , Fanatic x 1
    Goblin Wolf Riders (6) - Bows, Music
    Goblin Wolf Riders (6) - Bows, Music

    Special
    Black Orcs (30) - Boss, Music, Standard, banner of discipline, shield
    Goblin Wolf Chariots (3)
    Goblin Spear Chukka
    Goblin Spear Chukka

    Rare
    Giant
    Goblin Rock Lobber
    Doom Diver
    Doom Diver
    Mangler
    Mangler

    The plan is to bunker down BSB and General in the B Orcs, run the two units of N Goblins either side of the black orcs. Shamans hang around those 3 units to buff/hex as appropriate.
    Wolves try to take out/delay anything that might suicide into fanatics/manglers. The manglers run down flanks with chariots. Giant maybe hanging close to one of the night goblin units. Thoughts?

    Pretty heavy on the artillery, but I don't think that's overboard for Greenskins. I could see where a troop-heavy (lots and lots of knights) Bretonnian army could give you trouble, running around your three core blocks, through your wolves, and into the artillery. That'd still make for a fun game.

    Because they can Trademark it, but also because the GW version is, as usual, the grimmer, darker twist on the base concept; contrast bat wings instead of bird, leonine forequarters instead of cervine and so on…basically, WF want it to be 'theirs' and also hopefully avoid mythology nerds telling them they're doing it wrong.

    Not sure if anyone is interested, but I have all the minis from the old battle for skull pass that I'm trying to get rid of. If anyone wants - PM me an offer. Thanks

    Some say that the Blood Angels are tainted: that they harbour a dark secret. I know this to be true. I have seen the infamous Death Company: wild-eyed and foam-mouthed berserkers who tear their enemies limb from limb, crush skulls with a single blow, snap spines and rip out inner organs. I have seen the Sanguinary Priests: the passing of blood filled chalices from lip to lip, heard their wracking lamentations of Sanguinus's death. I have watched their rituals: mighty warriors daubing their armour in the blood of their foes, heard them crying for vengeance against the enemies of the Emperor.

    So had the two battles with the army list I posted 5-6 posts up. I decided to ditch the giant for two pimp wagons and a few more fanatics and glad I did.

    First Battle vs Ogres (in place of the WoC player), typical twin ironblasters, 2 units of leadblechers, one mournfang unit 4 strong and a couple of large units of ogres list. My potential randomness put him on the back foot and he moved forward more carefully then he would normally giving me an extra turn of shooting and thining the odd model off his ogre units. My wolf chariots hunted down and killed one iron blaster with the second being dropped by a misfire.

    My manglers ran up the flank although one was suicided by a lone large cat thing. The other managed to hit one of the basic ogre units pretty hard. The fanatics made a nice road bump as the ogres came forward and I even got a lucky charge off with the goblins against the Mornfang holding them up for two turns which was long enough to get the black orcs stuck in who finished them off with minor casualties in return.

    With the mournfang down, the black orcs with general and BSB mopped up the rest of the units. Large win for me.

    Second Battle Vs Brets, a win for me and pretty much a slaughter. He lacked the chaff to deal with my fanatics and manglers. A lucky bad moon curse thinned out his largest lance unit by just under half.
    The peg knights caused me all kinds of problems behind the lines and I ended up just ignoring them and focusing what was in front of me while they took out the odd warmachine. In combat his knights fell left right and center vs the black orcs and characters. While the goblins held units up wonderfully until the black orcs could run in the flank and break the combat.

    After these battles I think im going to drop the rock lobber OR the two spear chukkas, and add 10 models each to both the NG units. 50 worked very well and nothing could finish them in 2/3 turns but they were always a few wounds short of being able to hold for 3/4 rounds. 10 more models per unit would give them a very high chance of standing for three turns giving the black orcs more time to get things done.

    Enjoying the list, the following is a blooper reel from both battles:
    -Doom Diver misfire throwing the poor doom diver in a straight line into the rear of my goblins.
    -Snotling pump wagon going out of control 5 inches from the enemy unit and hitting the black orcs
    -Night goblin shaman had two "bad trips" in a row killing himself.

    Good fun list though.

    So far when building my Beastmen army I have kept all the spare bits... this has caused me to have a huge stockpile of Gor shields, Ungor spears and duplicate banners.

    On one hand I feel I should keep this stuff as "I paid for it", but on the other hand I know I am never going to use any of it. Is there someplace (UK) that will buy random stuff like this (I cant imagine anyone wanting 80+ beastmen shields), or shall I just throw it all out?

  • Mr_RoseMr_Rose 83 Blue Ridge Protects the Holy Registered User regular
    Many people who've been in the miniature war gaming hobby for a while maintain a "bitz box" with all the leftover random junk from the kits they've assembled for use in future projects. Never know when you might need a random beastman shield for something, eve if it's just decoration on a larger thing, like a Giant's shoulder pad.

    That said, there are places that do purchase used sprues; maelstrom games is the only UK one I can think of though.

    Thats a point... maybe a Gorgon / Cygor could get some extra armour in the form of shields. It would help to make them a little more unique if I get more than one.

    Edit: I feel like I never post for ages and then come here with a whole bunch of questions!

    What is a good proportion of characters for a 3,000 pt game? I know I could go up to 50% (25% Lords / 25% Heroes), but I guess that would leave me as a bit reliant on only a few models. My "plan" for the Beastmen at 3,000 pts puts me with ~35% in characters and I just feel I have overspent.

    I have taken a Beastlord, Great Shaman (Lvl4), Wargor BSB & Shaman (Lvl2).

    The list is looking something along these lines at the moment and comes in a 2997 Pts
    Beastlord

    So, I have the beginnings of a new Empire Army that I need to clear out for space reasons. Any interest? I'm not looking to split it up, except maybe the Luminark:
    Army Book (New)
    1 Finecast Warrior Priest (assembled)
    8 Knightly Orders (New on Sprue)
    20 State Troops (New on sprue)
    10 Crossbowmen (5 assembled)
    20 Free Company (assembled)
    10 Greatswords (assembled)
    5 Pistoliers (assembled)
    1 Luminark/Hurricanum (New in box)

    No paint on anything. Retail is around $285, BTP is offering 40% of retail for everything minus the book.

    OK, so the new daemon models in White Dwarf are pretty rad. Except the chaos lawnmowers but whatever. I think a Defiler is probably going to be my very next purchase. Maybe even a Plague Hulk. Wonder if WF are going to come up with Warhammer rules for that beastie….

    ...because dragons are AWESOME! That's why.

    I've decided to pick my Vampires back up. In an effort to get motivated I'm going to paint some of the more interesting models. First up, a Varghulf.

    OK, looking at he kits, the FW Plague Hulk is clearly king of all soulgrinders. I hope FW/WF can come up with a Tzeentchi equivalent soonest because damn.
