I don't, because I'm as immersed in it as ever. I only took up Warhammer for its quality sides, and ignore warts like mechanical Empire horses and End Times (entertaining as the latter was). Only interested in the good stuff, life too short to care about the flaws. So the end of the world passed me by with a shrug of shoulders. I will only ever switch setting when and if someone manages to rival Warhammer Fantasy's outstanding mass of background, quality, depth and detail level. A bit difficult, given its 30+ years of mainly brilliant development, but time will tell.

Long live the Old World!

That's the army book that sealed my fate in regards to my massive and loved Dawi army.

I noticed a funny thing: many  different wargames are played pretending to set them in the World of Warhammer from KoW to Age of Schadenfreude the contrary happened rarely maybe even never  due the strenght of the original Warhammer lore.

Definitely children of a greater god.


It sits alone on the giant throne
Pretendin' bein' the god-king
A little tyke who's rather like
A puppet on a string
And it throws an angry tantrum
If it cannot have his way
And then it calls for Mom while it's suckin' its thumb
You see, it doesn't want to play
Too late to be known as Warhammer the First
It's sure to be known as Warhammer the Worst
Aos   the phony Wargame of England!

An Ode to Old World

There once was a fantasy world,
Where our Empire's banners unfurled,
To the east and to the west,
The Old World was the best,
But sadly the results of their plans,
Were to ruin the reign of Karl Franz,
Yet hark what is this,
A saviour from the abyss,
A knight of gleaming gold,
Though nothing like the old,
I'll pass this time and live in days gone by,
Of the Old World and then I sigh.
