The End Times have arrived for the Warhammer Fantasy world! For many people it has been bitter sweet. For the first time in over a decade, WHFB has been able to mystify and horrify both critics and fan boys alike. With untold deaths and consequences piling up in the thousands, needless to say the End Times have been effective at ripping out the hearts of active Warhammer players.
For myself, the End Times has been an enjoyable ride of action, loss and tragedy. While it has been nice to see story progression, it has also been a very difficult pill to shallow. However, while reading through the End Times books I could not help but see an odd pattern developing. Perhaps it was all the change and destruction occurring throughout the books, but for the first time in a very long while I was able to see a potential alternative. For the first time in decades I could see the bonds that tie both Warhammer and Blood Bowl (which GW has tried to remove) together. In the past, I had found these very loose ties fairly comedic and not really connected to Warhammer in a serious manner. However, with the realization of the End Times, these two game worlds have never been closer together.
BEWARE!! Past this point leads to End Times Spoiler Territory and my “Directors Cut” of the End Times. There will be some significant changes to the End Times story (so I can manipulate it, of course). However, I will do a full proper review of the End Times in the future, but for now lets have some fun and see what “could have happened”. Enjoy!
