The world of Warhammer has a decades long legacy of great games,
spectacular storytelling, and awesome adventures. The expansive world of

optional changes and improvements to please any Old World veteran.

Our creative team are lifelong Warhammer fans and hobbyists - we haven't
just played all three previous editions of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay,
between us we've worked on them all too! We bloomin' love Warhammer, and
we hope it shows through the game we want to share with you.
Stick a feather in your hennin hat, grab your zweihander, and unleash
