I'm following the news about the "Total War: Warhammer" game.

I have seen that they are going to take out the second game and it will include 4 more armies of Warhammer.

In this next edition will put:

  • Lizards men
  • Skavens
  • High Elves
  • Dark Elves

These 4 armies would be united to those already existing:

  • Empire
  • Bretonia
  • Chaos warriors
  • Beast men
  • Dwarfs
  • Orcs and goblins
  • Vampire counts
  • Wood Elves

As for this, I have been thinking about those that are missing... I only have 4 more that would be :

  • Chaos Dwarves
  • Daemons of Chaos
  • Kingdom of the Ogres
  • Funeral kings

Exposed all of this, I'm forgetting something? Or are there only these armies in the Warhammer? Could they add some other armies that only comes out in the lore? If so, what would it be?

  • From a game perspective, there is probably a limit to the number of races they are likely to add, as it becomes harder to make them play differently and still be balanced.

  • @Jack Yes, but I do not intend to seek a competitive balance. I just want to know if there are other races other than those already mentioned, since I do not know if there is more or there is possibility to include armies from within the lore of warhammer fantasy that do not exist in the board game.

  • @DisturbedNeo , this information is from teh 2005 codex and for example "Nippon - based upon ancient Japan", doesn't really say anything about these nations. But thanks for the link maybe Kislev will be a good point...

Its been a while since I've played, and It looks like they have changed things a bit with the latest edition, but I think you have covered all the major published ones.

There did used to be a mercenary army called Dogs of War that you could play, although normally the units were fielded as mercenaries in other armies.

There have also been Araby and Kislev armies in Warmaster, another discontinued game in the same universe. These armies may have had experimental white dwarf rules as well, not sure.

There were also various combined army rules (e.g. Combined chaos armies of various forms), but I wouldn't count them as separate factions, as well as specialised versions of different armies (e.g. rules for different vampire factions that allowed a few different units in the list).

  • I was unaware of the existence of Warmaster, but if Araby and Kislev could be good additions ... And yes, I really look for some army that would have appeared in the "white dwarf" or something like this
