WARHAMMER FANTASY CONVERSION MOD
CORE MOD CONCEPTS
This mod will convert the StoneHearth world into the WarHammer Fantasy world, complete with the races, amazing combat units and system and all of its BEAUTIFUL LORE!
StoneHearth will play the same (basically), the only fundamental differences being:
You will control the different races, and have their respective abilities, The map will not change…Random Encounters may, but the world will be an entirely true reproduction of the WarHammer Fantasy map (We’ll work hard to achieve this! Most likely will happen if there is a map editor).
Races & Combat
This is the resume of each races to give an overview:
Within the dark heart of the twisted and dangerous forests of the Old World dwell hordes of Beastmen, true children of Chaos. Preying on the weak and striking without warning, the Beastmen are a plague on the civilised world, murdering and slaughtering with abandon. The Knights of Bretonnia are renowned for their skill at arms, their bravery and chivalry. A Bretonnian army is an impressive sight; ranks of knights with fluttering pennants adorned with personal heraldry, backed up with scores of filthy, low born peasants. The Daemons of Chaos are warlike fragments of divine will loosed upon the world. Blasphemous abominations drawing raw power from the Chaos Gods themselves, they are the ruination of civilisation. Cold and heartless, the Dark Elves launch terrible raids on the lands of the Warhammer world, enslaving thousands and burning civilizations to the ground. Every day the Dark Hosts of Naggaroth sacrifice hundreds of souls on the altars of the Lord of Murder. The Dwarfs are tenacious and determined warriors with unparalleled weapons, created by their Runesmiths, they defend their holds from Orcs and Skaven. Remembering every affront, Dwarfs miss no opportunity to settle grudges with the edge of an axe. The armies of the High Elves are glittering hosts of steadfast spearmen, deadly archers and proud cavalry. Exceptionally skilled warriors, the Elves are led by mages who are masters of magic and heroes who command mighty Dragons of days past. Long before the rise of Elves, Dwarfs or Men, the Lizardmen existed deep in the jungles of Lustria. A dangerous civilization of hulking reptilian warriors and gargantuan monsters, led by the bloated Slann, they seek to restore order to the world and will mercilessly punish any who stand in their way. Big, brutish and extremely violent, an Ogre is a fearsome sight in the Warhammer world. When a whole army of Ogres marches to war, they descend upon their foes with the force of an avalanche, consuming all before them in a tide of destruction. Orcs and Goblins are the scourge of the Warhammer world, an unending tide of ferocious raiders trampling a swathe of destruction across the land. Orcs and Goblins are angry creatures that live to fight, their only goal is to rampage and slaughter. The Skaven are a race of evil rat-men that fester in the dark places of the world. Eternally scheming and plotting their races ascendancy. Skaven March to battle in great hordes, swarming towards the foe in a mass of frenzied fur and black-clad assassins. Since its founding the Empire has endured terrible invasions. Through years of bloodshed, this land of Men has stood fast through faith and steel, its tireless citizen soldiers and valiant heroes, surviving against the innumerable foes that assail it from all sides. The ancient kings of Nehekhara hunger for power and conquest. As they march from their tombs they are joined by regiments of skeletons, Undead charioteers and animated war constructs of immense power. Few can stand before the wrath of the Tomb Kings. The Vampire Counts are a perilous threat to the Old World. Stronger, tougher and faster than any mortal, Vampires can summon vast Undead hordes to fight for them, including zombies, skeletons, ghouls, and long-dead wraiths. From the far north come the legions of Chaos, led by mighty champions of the Dark Gods. Raised in battle, these great warriors fight for glory and the favour of their gods, seeking immortality and everlasting power. The Wood Elves of Athel Loren are mysterious, secretive beings. Merciless with those who enter their realm, they are masters of ambush and the greatest archers in the world. In war they unleash the full fury of the forest, as Elves fight alongside Forest Spirits.
Each race has specific combat abilities and units, so many that we can’t list them all, or this thread would never end! Some of the more remarkable ones are:
Ogres riding terribly beasts into battle, as well as their fearsome sky-Titan Cannon Empire steam tanks and machine cannons Dwarf cannons (trust me….they’ve got interesting cannons…)
Each race has its respective heavy and light unit types.
