Warhammer Archaeology


Strike to Stun
Gideon over at the Strike to Stun forum has trawled through a lot of early Citadel publications and traced the growth of the Warhammer mythos from 1983 to 1987. His work gives a perfect insight into the grimdark world’s light-hearted origins and early development, and it brought up a few memories that I had forgotten all about.

Strike to Stun is one of the first WFRP/Warhammer fan forum sites, and it’s still one of the very best. If you haven’t already checked it out, I’d recommend taking a look.

    If you’re interested in the early days of Warhammer and WFRP, this old post from the Fighting Fantasist blog is also worth checking out. Coop gets a lot of stuff right, and there’s a good discussion in the comments thread.

    And speaking of Warhammer archaeology, Zhu Baije (of the excellent Realm of Zhu blog at http://realmofzhu.blogspot.co.uk/) pointed me to some collections of old Citadel fliers and order inserts, containing a further wealth of early Warhammer lore.

    They are from before my time at GW so I can’t offer any particular insights, but they make interesting reading.

    Here are the links:
