Thread: Warhammer Information Thread Index - Updated 14/06/21

    Default Warhammer Information Thread Index - Updated 14/06/21

    Warhammer Information Thread Index

    There are many mods for Warhammer Total War but I have noticed that there are quite a few that add new units that are not loreful at all. This annoyed me when I first saw them as I love the Old World setting, and that annoyance gave me the idea of writing up lists of all the potential units a modder could make for each faction. Unfortunately I did not quite realise that the list would reach into the hundreds, let alone reach over a thousand. As such, for any modder who wants to make units, there will be something there for you to make that no-one else has managed. I hope these resource lists prove useful to you!

    Here is the index of each list I have written so far:

    I will add new units now and again if I stumble across them, but for the most part these are to be considered complete. I may add more resource threads eventually, if I find something to write about.

    For ease of access, I have split the Minor Factions list into numerous other smaller factions. In the process I managed to bulk out the Hobgoblin list, and I also split the Beastmen from Chaos and gave them a few extra units.

    Enjoy!

    Oh, and thanks for the comments guys!

    I've updated the Bretonnian thread to include my suggested unit lists for each faction in bretonnia and also all the legendary lords and heroes there.

    Just made an update I love to make: I've removed units from the Wood Elf list because they're being added into the game. I love it when that happens

    Awesome work! I went through most of the lists and I don't think I saw the Forgeworld units.

    https://www.fichier-pdf.fr/2012/11/0...trous-arcanum/

    http://whfb.lexicanum.com/wiki/List_...rgeworld_units

    And there are some regiments of renown units that can be added I think.

    @Der Phönix

    Thank you! I've been looking through those links you've posted up. Many of the Forgeworld units are actually listed in the various army lists I've written, but many would be added in the Special Characters sections I'm aiming at writing up. I do have to be careful with adding units from Forgeworld as many are aimed at the Age of Sigmar crap, so I do pick and choose rather carefully when adding from there. If I've missed any, I'll add them to my lists.

    When it comes to the Monstrous Arcanum, I'm really glad to have seen it, though unfortunately much of it is blurry so I've struggled to know where to place various monsters. However, when I find out where they go, I'll definitely be adding monsters like Incarnate Elementals to the lists. There is some awesome stuff in there.

    On the top of the RoR units, the problem I have with that list is that very few of the units listed actually have their sources named. Which isn't 100% a problem, and I'll still add them to my Empire list, but I'll have to carry a disclaimer with them to let people know there is a chance that they aren't loreful. However, I do believe they are loreful, but it's best to add the disclaimer anyway.

    If you stumble across anything else, I'd be really glad to see it.

    Happy to see you found it useful. A lot of the Age of Sigmar stuff is rubbish I agree.

    The Monstrous Arcanum is an amazing book but it's quite blurry indeed and for some of the creatures they oddly enough did not describe to which faction it belongs. Anyways, from the top of my head, these are the factions that some of the units relate to. A few of them might be pretty obvious but since I was at it.

    Dread Maws - Hobgoblins
    Bonegrinder Giant - Tomb Kings
    Carmine Dragon - Empire
    Curs'd Ettin - Chaos
    Incarnate Elemental of Beasts - Chaos/Beastmen
    Magma Dragon - Chaos Dwarfs
    Preyton - Beastmen
    Skin Wolves - Chaos
    Warpfire Dragon - Chaos
    Siege Giant - Chaos Dwarfs
    Kdai Fireborn - Chaos Dwarfs
    Bale Taurus - Chaos Dwarfs
    Bull Centaur Render - Chaos Dwarfs
    Basilisk - Kingdom of Ind
    Khemeric Titan - Tomb Kings
    Toad Dragon - Chaos (fits Lizardmen pretty good too)
    Mervyrm - High Elves
    Bile Trolls - Chaos
    Rogue Idol of Gork - Orks
    River Troll Hag - Orks
    Colossal Squig - Chaos
    Mourngul - Vmapire Counts

    People on the forum would probably know they few ones that are extra tricky and completely unreadable.

    As for the RoR units, some of them have more info on google but others we are left completely in the dark on.

    I stumble upon new stuff all the time and will certainly let you know . The work you have made here would be a great resource for CA as well.

    You've probably seen this site below; great collection of unofficial army books and a lot of the Monstrous Arcanum unitsw are in them.

    I'm not 100% on some of those assignments for those monsters, but I'll look into them. I know a lot of those are already in my lists though, which is good. I'll be able to finish up the rest soon with luck.

    I'm careful with the warhammer armies project rules. I've added their lists where appropriate, and always listed them as "Unofficial", but if I spot any more useful units from it I'll add those

    Yes, it's a good thing you're going over it yourself as I might be mistaken on some of them. Another similar book to Monstrous Arcanum is the Storm of Magic book, which also contains a lot of new units. Have not been able to find a download for it but below is a review.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwHp...v2UuPLg&t=236s

    The unofficial books can be good for finding official units that are not in the official books, since the latter only contain those units produced as miniatures.

    By the way, if you don't already have access to the White Dwarf Magazines, check out the the link below. A lot of these numbers contain tons of fluff, and many of the ROR units for the Empire you just added are in #354.

    https://www.mediafire.com/folder/tx4hcy4u487pv/WD

    A few other Empire units can be found in the Uniforms and Heraldry of the Empire book.

    https://issuu.com/mag_white/docs/uni...he_empire_by_c

    Ill be posting some more stuff in the faction thread now and then.

    Cheers

    Thanks in part to Der Phönix I've been able to add a large update in the form of a new thread that deals with the Lores of Magic. It's incomplete, but if you look, you'll see its pretty vast already.

    Enjoy!
