Cartography of the Olde World
New article by the Warhammer Community team:
From the names on the map it looks like the return of WHFB will be set during the Age of the Three Emperors, roughly 16th-24th Century IC as opposed to the early 26th it was set in just before the End Times.
What do people think of this?
Personally I think it could be a nice decision. It gives them plenty of room to come up with stuff without hamfistedly retconning/trying to cram stuff into the five minutes to midnight time period, while still having broad strokes and a definitive end point to give them direction. It also means they can come up with new units, monsters, etc and explain their absence in classic WHFB as having been destroyed, lost, changed etc over time similar to all the snazzy HH toys for 40k.
