* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Many fans were disappointed with the "Storm of Chaos" campaign, for which , Games Workshop was build up the lore for years for the occasion and that offered many opportunities to advance the Fantasy background. What happened at the end? That Games Workshop decided to leave everything just like as it was before the campaign.

** Fantasy still had a lot of potential, such as expanding the background of underutilized territories and races, which was a perfect opportunity to introduce new armies like Araby, Cathay, Estalia, Kislev, Albion, the Amazons, the Fimirs, the Hobgoblins hordes, etc… However, none of them will ever be explored because the world is destroyed with the “The Times End”, a campaign full of nonsense and asspull,

* MagnificentBastard: Malekith gets his moments: one of the best examples is how he gained control of the city of Hag Graef; the city was founded by a group of defeated Dark Elf generals who, [[YouHaveFailedMe aware of Malekith's reputation of dealing with failure]], established the city in a deep valley that would reduce the effectiveness of any punitive attack Malekith might send. The Witch King [[MakeAnExampleOfThem wanted to crush Hag Graef utterly as a warning to any other dissenters]], but Morathi urged him to be subtle. Instead, he invited the highest ranking nobles of Hag Graef to a feast, during which he made them a wager; one of the goblets of wine being served was poisoned and any noble willing to drink would receive his blessing to rule a share of the city. Not wanting to lose face in front of their rivals, the nobles all drank...at which point Malekith gleefully revealed that ''every'' wine goblet had poisoned, and only by swearing unconditional loyalty to him would they receive the antidote.

** The whole business of Eltharion the Blind. At one point during the sixth edition, Malekith captured Eltharion. He tortured him and removing his eyes, and sent what remained of Eltharion back to Ulthuan to strike fear into the High Elves. He made a full recovery and, full of hate to his dark cousins, organized an invasion campaign to exterminate the Dark Elves. In later editions, like the Storm of Chaos, the entire Blind story was ignored, and Eltharion remained the same as his previous incarnation.

* UnfortunateImplications: The Pygmys of the Southlands, a faction from the very early days of Warhammer. Even if one disregards the fact that they are based on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pygmy_peoples actually existing people]] and treated like something fictional, something that many fantasy franchises are guilty of, one can't help but to be deeply bothered that the models look like something out of a racist caricature (complete with overly large red lips and everything) and the fact that they were the only darskinned people in the setting for the longest time doesn't help mattters either. There is a reason why they have not been mentioned for decades and are a concept even more dead than the Squats of Warhammer 40000.

* FanonDiscontinuity: A large portion of the fandom hate with passion everything related to The End Times and the Age of Sigmar, to the point that they consider the Videogame Total War: Warhammer as the real continuation. For a good reason the fan-made Fantasy Battles: The Ninth Age was created.

* GenreTurningPoint: In the mid-1980s, the game popularised fantasy in {{Wargaming}}, which had until then been dominated by historical games, and along with ''TabletopGame/{{Battletech}}, which did the same for science fiction, brought a new generation into the hobby.

** Bretonnia suffered this after heavy {{Nerf}}s to cavalry units hit them particularly hard due to them being a cavalry-focused army.
