Took me much longer than anticipated, but all the pictures are back now.

Tell me about it. I am only now almost up to date on my new website with the campaign stuff. Mind you, it was around a 1000 pictures I think!
Photobucket has now re-destroyed my pictures, so the first half of my collected works thread is no longer working again. To see my website version of the campaign thread, with fully functioning pictures, please go to https://bigsmallworlds.com/

It seems, photobucket found and closed the loophole.

Strange - now it seems to work again. I will go full imgur anyway.

Jesus Christ. I am new to Warhammer and know very little of the fluff as I am still trying to digest the rules, but this thread is f'in amazing. Totally wrapped up in the art and the description as if it really happened in real life.

This is an excellent project and is very inspirational as well! My only question is where are the sea elves? Most importantly in The Battle of Grootscher Marsh, which was the famed battle of the third campaign to retake Marienburg the Imperial army is soundly defeated by a combination of the remaining army of the Westerland, Many companies of mercenaries and most importantly the fell magics and warriors of the sea elves, a victory that is so complete that Wilhelm nor any future emperor would ever again try to directly subjugate Marienburg back under Imperial rule by straight force of arms.

Also this quote on Dieter's fate from WFRP 'Sigmar's Heirs' " To avoid civil war after the defeat of an Imperial Army outside Marienburg, the new Emperor Wilhelm III recognised the Wasteland’s independence and made Dieter the Grand Duke and Elector Count of Talabecland, from which he detached Talabheim in a manner similar to Nuln." contradicts the house arrest he is placed under in this beautiful story.

This truly a god tier project btw!!

Thank you. I am glad you like it.

The Battle of the Grootscher Marsh is yet to come, and a sea elf will have a major role to play. That said, I was already planning to change the chronology of the campaigns, with what is now the Second Campaign becoming the Third and vice versa

Regarding Dieter: I am aware of that. As pointed out before, Warhammer fluff is often inconsistent and even contradictory. One of the reasons is that there were fundamental changes between WFRP1 and WFRP2, but these were not always followed though in all publications. Sometimes, the fluff simply does not make any sense. The scenario given here is my personal attempt to to paper over the many cracks (or rather chasms) in the fluff.

Great explanation Fidelis! And for what it's worth I like your chronology of events much better!! Although I would not switch the second and third campaigns as Grootscher March seems like a more definitive end to the hostilities as it is such an overwhelming Marienburg triumph, it also just makes more sense as it would have proven to the Emperor that taken back Marienburg was more trouble than it is worth.

(PS if you haven't read grimblades yet I highly recommend it as it is all about Grom's invasion and Wilhelm's rise to power/the throne)

Fidelis is a strict constructionist, Black Library works are off the table. It is the key point he and I differ (on Warhammer World interpretation) though I highly appreciate his work.
