** The End Times also retconned out numerous references in the fiction that either implied or outright stated that Old World would survive for decades or centuries to come after the period of Karl Franz. Some of these were already covered by the Storm of Chaos retcon mention above but others were not. The most notable is probably the ''Zavant'' stories which are set in the same era as most Warhammer fiction but have a FramingDevice set over a century in the future with a clearly intact Old World.

* FullBoarAction: Deployed by the Orcs was heavy cavalry, compared to the light wolf cavalry used by the goblins.

** The Tomb Kings also have this in a way, the Blessing of the Asp stops modifiers from affecting the rolls. A better example would to deploy High queen Khalida and have the arrows of your archers become poisoned arrows.

* NephariousPharaoh: The Tomb Kings are this, as the priests who were supposed to grant them entry to the afterlife instead brought them back as undead corpses. In an interesting variation, they all still think themselves the rightful rulers of Khemri, which doesn't go well with the previous and following rightful rulers of Khemri.

Added DiffLines:

* FictionalDisability: Teclis is the greatest mage the Elves have ever produced (and one of the greatest mages in world history). He is also a ''ridiculously'' SquishyWizard, requiring healing potions just to stay alive, and having a limp uncurable by magic. By contrast, his brother Tyrion is an unpeered swordmaster.

** It's not that the Khornates ''wanted'' to turn on you, it's more to do with how he already curb-stomped everyone else and needs to kill some more. Or that you were between him and someone he wanted to kill.

* ContinuityNod: The ''Warhammer'' world does not canonically take place in the same universe as ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' ([[RetCon anymore]]), but it does make a few nods to the sci-fi mythos, such as the Old Ones' starships and warp gates and Greenskin spores coming down from space, and the Ogres' Great Maw is reminiscent of Tyranid biotech. It's easy to believe that Sigmar, founder of the Empire, is one of the two missing Primarchs. In fact, in the earliest editions, it was all but stated that the Warhammer world is part of the TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} universe- or at least that the Chaos Wastes connected to the Warp. Characters of all species could run around with, among other things, bolters (machine gun rocket launchers) and lascannons, while Chaos Space Marines were an actual troop/leadership choice for mortal Chaos armies.

** Empire Witch Hunters. They'll kill people and burn villages if they even suspect them of being tainted by Chaos or unchecked magic users, hav a zero-tolerance policy on dissension within their ranks and periodically go through bouts of their grand masters turning completely paranoid due to senility. They are alternately [[TheFriendNobodyLikes hated]] and [[TheDreaded feared]] by the rest of the Empire as a result. They are aware of their status as this and don't like it much, but argue that their actions are a grim necessity to ensure the survival of the Empire.

** Then of course we have the Dark Elves, nearly all of whom are sadistic [[BloodKnight blood knights]] to a certain degree. The Cult of Khaine, the elven god of War and patron of Druchii society, actually manage to take this even further and are perhaps [[UpToEleven the most psychotic group in the setting.]]
