* LeaveBehindAPistol: Well, a dagger, but the sentiment, and end result are the same. In one of the fluff pieces, a Witch Hunter finds out his old friend, a Sigmar-priest, is in fact a secret Chaos cultist. Instead of going through the usual process of BurnTheWitch, he offers him a chance to kill himself.

* LiveActionEscortMission: The episodic scenario book ''The Dying of the Light'' turns into an escort mission with a ''supernatually'' annoying escortee for most of its second half.



* {{Mutants}}: The presence of Moorcock-inspired Chaos mutants is a feature that set Warhammer apart from many other fantasy wargame/role-playing systems and here they're given all the gory detail they deserve. Being a mutant meant everything from being a complete cripple, to merely being an ugly human, to becoming a freak powerful enough to put most X-Men to shame and everything in between.

* OldBritishMoney: The Empire has a similar monetary system: 12 copper pennies to the silver shilling, 20 silver shillings to the gold crown. Confusing as hell for anyone who grew up with decimalized money (basically everyone who isn't a Brit or an Irishman born after the mid-60's)

* ShoutOut: Quite a few. One that comes to mind is from the adventure ''The Dying of the Light'', where a witch hunter's equipment includes [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail a pair of scales and a duck]].

''Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay'' is a bleakly humorous take on a high fantasy roleplaying game. It is set in the same setting as ''{{TabletopGame/Warhammer}}''.

Independent publisher Hogshead obtained the rights to publish ''WFRP'' in 1995, though GW retained editorial control to ensure any original material remained true to their canon. Hogshead reverted the license to GW in 2002 when they came under new ownership, and in 2005 Games Workshop published a 2nd edition of the rules developed by outside developer GreenRonin. In 2009, after getting the license, Fantasy Flight Games - the publishers of TabletopGame/DarkHeresy and the TabletopGame/RogueTrader RPG, which use variations in the 2nd edition rules - put out a somewhat controversial 3rd edition; support for that ended in 2014.

** This is because it was based off of an earlier rendition Warhammer Fantasy, before a great deal of the setting was rewritten in WFB5e.

* TheGrotesque: Long term contact with chaos or warpstone often induces mutations in player characters, regardless of whether you choose to fight against or embrace the corruption eventually you ''will'' lose your mind. If you're playing the now outdated second edition and you're a Norscan with a mutation, congratulations! You can start as a {{Badass}} Chaos Marauder! And it's all up hill from there.
