What is recognizable as the Warhammer World began with the expansion material to the first edition of the game Warhammer, but was formulated as a distinct setting with a world map in the second edition. The Warhammer World borrowed considerably from historical events and other fantasy fiction settings. The Old World is recognisably Europe approximating to a variety of historical periods including the Renaissance - the Empire being set over what is modern Germany - medieval France, Roman Italy and Celtic Britain. Many events are lifted and modified directly from real-world history, including the Black Plague and the Moorish invasion of Spain , and others from original fantasy sources.

Do you like this video? The Heraldry of Estalia. Estalia is a parched realm of Men that is located south of Bretonnia [2a] [5a] and southwest of the Empire.
The Arabyans were defeated and the land reclaimed. Estalia still bears the scars of this Vampire war, and the people there have an unforgiving view of the Undead. Geography A Detailed Mosaic of Estalia. The Estalian Kingdoms lie in the south of the Old World , a warmer and drier area than the north. The threat of Chaos seems very remote here, far away from the incursions and beyond the immediate threat of Chaos bands.
Unlike Bretonnia and the Empire, which are unified nations under a single ruler, the Estalian Kingdoms are many and of various sizes. The Kingdoms of the Irrana Mountains are home to fierce, tough hill-fighters, while those along the south coast are prosperous trading nations whose ships ply the Southern Sea to Araby.
The largest cities and towns war upon each other, as well as against the Arabians to the south, the Bretonnians to the north and the Tileans to the east. Both are strong because of trade and access to the sea, a fact that causes much jealousy amongst the poor kingdoms of the Irrana Mountains.
The Arabyans were defeated and the land reclaimed but no outstanding Estalian leader arose in this conflict to unify the small kingdoms. Without a Sigmar or a Gilles to lead the way, Estalia fell back into familiar patterns. In less than a generation, the crusaders were gone and the Estalians were once again fighting amongst themselves.
Subtle perhaps, but no less deadly. It is not the brute power of the raging Beastman , but the hidden plotting of secret societies and cults which is eating away at Estalia. She is patron Goddess of the art and science of war and the Estalians have learned her lessons well.
There is a strong tradition of seamanship and seafighting among the coastal cities. For example, the fleets of Magritta effectively control the Southern Sea, patrolling against pirates and imposing an impromptu levy on trading ships of other nations. It is said Estalians are very hardy folk, who will slay a man for mistaking them for a Tilean or even greeting them in Tilean by mistake. Fencing schools can be found throughout the region, many with long histories and deadly rivalries.
Estalian sword-and-buckler fighters are well known, and the Diestros are also now gaining recognition. For reasons still hotly debated by her modern cult, Myrmidia then returned to the descendants of Tylos; however, she came not as a God, but as a mortal. Over the years, and many battles, she gathered great heroes to her side, and within a decade had bound all Estalia and Tilea under her rule, staving off all manner of invasions and rebellions.
To the east, there are the Tileans. They believe Myrmidia was born in Remas , and was therefore a Tilean. Importantly, they believe that Myrmidia, as a Tilean, conquered Estalia. However, the Estalians to the west believe Myrmidia was born in Magritta, and was therefore an Estalian. Similarly, they believe Myrmidia, as an Estalian, conquered Tilea.
However, she controversially swore to accept the Estalian version of Myrmidia, and has moved to Magritta, where she is working hard to put this old division to rest.
