Warhammer, The game of Fantasy Battles, allows you to wage war with armies of Citadel miniatures across tabletop battlefields in the ultimate contest of strategy and skill. Each player is a general, who must choose his finest warriors, decide upon cunning battle plans and strategies and lead his followers to victory or death. Games can vary in size from small skirmishes of just a few dozen models per side, to massive clashes with literally hundreds of miniatures. The world of Warhammer is a land sundered by bitter strife and deadly conflict. Every realm and kingdom is riven by war and destruction, a battleground for mighty armies that advance to the beat of sonorous war-drums and the braying call of trumpets.
Warhamer is about armies that batlle on the table. Every army in Warhammer is unique. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages, presenting diverse tactical opportunities as well as untold potential for painting and modelling. Choosing your first army may seem a daunting prospect - each has its own detailed history and culture, each plays differently on the gaming table and each requires a different approach for painting. That can all feel a little intimidating at first, but don't worry, it needn't be hard at all.
