Happy Birthday Kalevala Hammer!

Happy Birthday this site! Site is now 16 years old.

Another year with Warhammer. And it looks good. Cubicle7 Entertainment is doing amazing work with WFRP4 providing good amount of new material and interesting locations. And there is stil so much more that can be published.

Total War: Warhammer has expanded the Immortal Empires to include all the three games connecting the entire Warhammer World. This makes huge world wide campaigns possible.

Another game that should be mentioned is Games Workshop Warhammer: The Old World, which we get news time to time. New version of the WFB happening in the World-That-Was. It is coming.

And I've been working various rules too, for WFRP4. I'll try to get those to the site soon. All good - Remember to keep the hammer high! Cheers J

Warhammer Community: The Old World (Warhammer Community)

Warhammer: The Old World. Remeber this official Games Workshop project? It started few years back. Warhammer Fantasy world was destroyed by The End Times. They started slowly building new rules about the World-That-Was (and which was destroyed). Since then there has been number of articles detailing various things about the project. Not too much information, but it still seems to be coming (slowly). It seems, that this new version or edition (?!) will be set to little earlier in the Warhammer timeline than previous army books. It is interesting project.

You can follow any news about the project from the official Warhammer Community site. Their news has huge amount of various news from different Warhammer settings, so following links direct you to this years news about the Old World project (more easy to navigate, if you are interested). If you search more news there, try "Old World" to search.

WFRP4 - Lustria Pre-Order (Cubicle7, DriveThruRPG)

And another huge rpg sourcebook (over 200 pages) from Cubicle7 finally exploring the mysterious Lustria. Realm that we know from the Lizardmen army books, old articles, WFB campaigns, and maybe from some novels. Rich and huge realm to explore and so it is. Who wouldn't want to adventure to its steaming jungles where weather, diseases, plants, animals, undead, Norse, pirates, Dark Elves, savage Greenskins, beasts, and mysterious Lizardmen all can be your doom?

- Maps of the realm.
- Lustria lands, climate, history, lore (what different species and nations know about it), ancient places of power.
- Interesting locations, including Norse colony of Skeggi, The Vampire Coast and Elf colonies.
- Temple-Cities and Tlaxtlan.
- All about the Old Ones, The Slann and the Lizardmen. Their religion, magical powers, special traits, weapons...
- High Magic. This includes rules for Elven use of High Magic too.
- Lustrian Bestiary.
- Campaign ideas to Lustria and huge amount of various rules including new Character Options, careers, events, weather, travel endeavours...
- And like always - beatiful art.

Total War: WARHAMMER III - Immortal Empires is Here!!! (SEGA & The Creative Assembly)

Total War: Warhammer III Immortal Empires has official been launched this month, with Patch Notes 2.4.0 update. It has been on beta stage since last year, but now it should be available to everyone.

Total War: Warhammer III has previously only featured it's own campaigns and not connect it's new factions (Grand Cathay, Ogres and different Chaos hosts) to other realms. Until now. Personally I think this is the most exiting update, finally, on Total War: Warhammer -series, as it now expands the battlefield to almost entire Warhammer World (World-That-Was). Why did I say almost? Well, it seems that Ind, Khuresh and Nippon are not available, but we still should be able to sail and fight around the Warhammer World nicely.

During the last summer they already gave us map of the game world. This Total War: Warhammer III - The Immortal Empires Map -link will take you to that blog page on the official blog.
