Something I have been meaning to bring up for a while is the mark-up for special rules. At the moment people have been italicising the names of special rules but this is something that Games Workshop didn\'t do for their own publications, and something that this site generally seems to only uses for Work titles (both in and out of universe) and the names of ships.

I personally would like to see them changed to simply capitalised as that is haw GW presented them in 8th Edition books.

I want to put a reference to the fact that the relationship between the Empire and Bretonnia is similar to that of Gondor and Rohan. Would this go under Fantasy Counterpart Culture or Shout Out?

Are they similar? My knowledge of lotr isn\'t as good as it could be but I am not sure if there is a direct comparison to be made.

Why were the Araby, Tilea, Cathay, etc. removed from the Fantasy Counterpart Culture section?

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.

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.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
