As very nice and epic as that picture is, can we not find another equally as nice that actually has the words "Warhammer" and possibly, "Fantasy Battle" on it?

Listing Warhammer as the Ur Example of Dark Fantasy is a pretty obvious bit of fanboy over-enthusiasm, seeing as some literary examples of the trope pre-date WH by decades (the first Elric story was published in 1961, for instance). That said, could WH reasonably be called the Trope Codifier for Dark Fantasy?

In the very least, it could also be given a lot of credit for getting the Genre off the ground because of its popularity.

Yes. Yes it could be.

Removed Natter - this might fit somewhere else, but has nothing to do with Breast Plate.

  • There ARE no male counterparts to Witch Elves and sorceresses.
    • Technically assassins are the male counterparts to Witch Elves.
    • And the Dark Elf book mentions male Dark Elf sorcerors; they aren't allowed to join the Coven (and thus can't be put in your army), since Malekith is too suspicious of them (he thinks they might usurp his place in a key prophecy), but those dark elf nobles who need magic and don't want to owe the Hag Queens a favor like having them around.
