WAR Boot Camp: Know your world!

As I am new to the Warhammer universe, I figured it would be a good idea to read up on what it is all about. This is the first in a series of bootcamp articles, starting with knowing the Warhammer world. I will keep it nice and simple, if you want to read more the links will be provided.

Where the heck are we and what are we conquering?

The Warhammer world is similar to our own (Earth for most of you I hope). In fact, where we will be seeing action is what is very much like Europe. This is where the Empire and Dwarves live. To the South and South West, we find the Orcs and Goblins. The elves inhabit the island of Ulthuan in the center of the Atlant... err Great Ocean. This is the primary theater of operations for the current battle.

Where can we conquer next?

Valid question, as we will win and need to know where to go next.

To the East, in Russia and Western Asia are the Ogre's and the Chaos Dwarves.

To the South in Africa is the land of the Dead and the human land of Araby.

Across the Great Ocean, the New World is largely devoid of civilization, but Dark Elves and Lizardmen have been seen.

Not much is known about the Far East, it is suspected that Chaos has a presence there.

The North and South poles are the location of strange portals which lead to the Realm of Chaos.
