* You wouldn't think Wood Elves would be a good source of this, but the ''Warhammer'' take on them delivers. The elves themselves aren't so bad except for the fact they're unpredictable and AxCrazy, basically [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Legolas]] mixed with the mutants from ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes''. It's Athel Loren's native... life, which you should worry about. Dryads initially appear as beautiful women and invite hapless fools into the forest with them, only to suddenly transform into horrible monsters and rip their victims to shreds. Some of the treekin are so insane that they just attack everything around them, including other treekin, and decorate themselves with the entrails and skeletons of their victims. They aren't Chaos corrupted, it's just what they're like. What's worse, it's suggested that Athel Loren has deep-running roots connecting it to the forests of the world, and it's ''expanding to encompass the entire planet'', as it's growing outwards and even little outcroppings are beginning to spring up on other landmasses - you could be a sailor on the other side of the world, innocently embarking on an island to go looking for coconuts, and suddenly find yourself in a forest from hell.

-> I think it is important to mention something about the book. It has undergone a great change. I noticed it as soon as I opened the cover. The pages, where once they were clean, crisp parchment, had turned rotten. Only a short space of time has elapsed since I last saw the book, but it is as if it was kept in a damp room for many years. The pages are damp and moist with water; and the smell! I was forced to turn the leaves using tweezers, as I did not want the corruption to taint me. Towards the end of the book the rot seemed worse. The pages were covered in a viscous green slime. During the late hours, with the candle burning low, I swear I could see tiny things crawling in the slime, burrowing under the pages, spreading their infection.

* While this will become less nightmarish as you start to collect the models and immerse yourself in the lore, a lot of the miniatures can be downright horrifying if you examine them closely. The most obvious are the Chaos models, where the mutations are downright painful to look at (the Glottkin model has ''eyes growing out of it's pores''. it will induce trypophobia in you). And then there are the trophies...

*** It's strongly hinted that the Skaven instinctively wage perpetual war and throw their lives away because they breed like ... well, rats. Their two choices are grinding away their population in war or having a population explosion and dying of starvation.

* The "Malus Darkblade" series of novels, set in the ''WarhammerFantasy'' mythos, has the titular Dark Elf telling a human slave that the slave's fiance, the most beautiful slave girl on the ship, agreed to do whatever Malus asked if her man was set free instead of her (The dark elves have a custom of freeing one slave a trip, [[ForTheEvulz though Malus could have been saying that to mess with him]]). The slave is held in place, weeping, as Malus says how he had his fun with her, and then handed her over to his officers. Then they handed her to the crew, who was "Rougher." Malus describes the blood, and the pain she went through, and finishes by stating that she no longer wished to sacrifice herself for him and wanted to be freed instead. And then pulls out a small object. To this point, you're thinking "rape", of course. Then you remember that these are Dark Elves, and [[ColdBloodedTorture what their favorite hobby is]] [[FridgeHorror (although given their depravity that unfortunately doesn't rule out rape)]]... and you realize this at just about the point where Malus unfolds the item, which is the girl's skinned and tanned face, and hands it to the slave. "Here, I saved her pretty face for you! Give her a kiss!"

* The first ''GotrekAndFelix'' book features a story in which the villain's hostages, the children of a local village, [[spoiler: are in fact experimental subjects and the mutants the heroes have been killing all the way through the story]].

** An even more terrifying thought is that the incomprehensibly malicious and devious Tzeentch is the god of ''Hope''. And this is still canon.

* No mention of the Great Maw? A comet with a face that, when it hits the earth, creates a huge desert full of mutated beasts, then burrows through the earth, leaving a huge pit the size of an inland sea which is rimmed with undulating rows of teeth. And the Ogres worship this thing, and make pilgrimages to it. And whats more, it is rumored that it has burrowed through the core of the world and out the other side making a huge, fanged whirlpool. And, looking at a map of the warhammer world, you can see that the approximate location of this whirlpool is an area of sea marked 'no ships return from here'.
