Holy crap...this is impressive! You should really try to get some of those sculpts produced. There are various services out there who can do the production part. All you would need to do is the sculpting part.

This setting has so much potential! I wonder why GW doesn't try playing with these sort of concepts as well.

It's interesting to see that vast parts of Loren and Bretonnia have been conquered. I wonder how the elves in this setting will be, must be rather interesting...

What about Chaos? Dieselpunk Chaos might be very interesting, can't really imagine how you would do them (hence the curiousity).

Good questions )
I always thought (fantasized )))) that wide spread of the technology would be possible in the magic world only if magic would lose its potence - somehow it happened during the last great stand between Order and Chaos when one artifact was used. Chaos (and Magic winds) were completely wiped out from the world with the price of cataclysms - you can see big new sea on the area of the Empire. People and other races survived -dwarves helped with first steam techs )
Currently big states are Great Republic (people on bipedal shagohods), Karak Anghaz (gnomes)and Albion Aliance (evil tanks) . Skaven underground empire survived ( OF COURSE!) but elves were put into reservation (Loren wood is too important for progress). On meantime magical winds have found its yet small ways into new world and Chaos gods will come with it

Hmm, I like the idea of magic having lost its potence. However, I would make it a more hidden threat, rather than defeated. So whilst it might no longer be the threat of vast Chaos armies, the Gods/daemons are not destroyed...

Cults from within the empire still try to create the circumstances for Chaos to reawaken. Kind of compare these new Chaos cults to the Cthulu cults you see in a lot of fiction.

So the impression is that Chaos is wiped out, but it's not. Despite of this, Chaos has suffered greatly. Their realms in the north have been destroyed, having been turned into wastelands, inhabited by a few mutants and outlaws who managed to survive.

But Elves in reservations, sort of like the native Americans in the real world? Wouldn't they have resisted? What about the High Elves and Dark Elves?

But since we are discussing dieselpunk Warhammer: remember Man 'O War or the more contemporary Dreadfleet? What about a dieselpunk counterpart? I could imagine all these factions have airships instead of conventional naval ships to fight each other as well.

I think ithere are great thoughts .

I agree that chaos should hidden rather completely distroyed and comparison with Chulthu is very exact -it is like spinal shock trauma -if you injury your spine initially it will be no function but only initially )))

agree about forest elves - always thought about them as dying but proud and resisting race, which however will get chance of survival as magic returns. And reservations -it looks like more as uranium mines )
High elves are possibly dead as Ulthuan was sunken during cataclysms, Dark - rather pirates and terrible legends.


steam dragons as regular fleet was my initial idea, but flying pirates as adversaries are very cool )

I would imagine Steam Dragons are more akin to aircraft or fighter jets. The airships I had in mind would be huge (more suitable for Dystopian Wars scale). Very curious to see scrap built orc airships.

Bretonnia would probably be some impoverished kingdom. I remember their background mentioning inbreeding, I could see this having happened amongst the nobility as well. You'd basically have a king unsuited to rule, but a population to weak to resist. The empire doesn't really do anything against them since they've got the Bretonnian province (only part with usable natural resources).
The remaining kingdom simply functions as a buffer against other factions.

The undead could also still be around. Vampires existing as upper class citizens within the empire, others living on estates in the country side. These families could have private armies of zombies (great excuse for Nazi Zombies or something).

yep Bretonnia is a feudal rotting corpse in the new era, altough it is trying to preserve nobility. Many of refugees escaped to Albion after Bretonnian-Vendigroth war created new class of ruling elite, hating Republic but using technologies as they learned the bitter lesson.

Orks are always orks and the great supply for new pirate era
And huge air ships "Dragonnests" class are in mind but yet to be built.

In summary -i agree that GW loses great idea )))

What scale did you have in mind to use to build the Dragonnest?

I'm still curious to see how you will make knights. Robotic horses?

But yeah, it's cool to see you flesh out this idea more. Maybe in the future it can then move more away from GW and become it's own thing. But it's handy to have something to hold on to in the beginning. GW used to do the same. Warhammer is nothing more than an imitation of Tolkien and D&D, 40k was Warhammer in space, combined with Dune.

So nothing wrong with being influenced!

I did not think about knights rather something like

What about something like this? Or maybe that might be more fitting for the Hobgoblins, who would be akin to biker gangs or something...

I'm digging the two ideas you posted, you might use both methods. The original Empire had different knightly orders who fought differently. Perhaps these old orders became companies/guilds, each with their own technology, thus different types of mobility and ways of fighting.

High elves are possibly dead as Ulthuan was sunken during cataclysms, Dark - rather pirates and terrible legends.

Just thinking here...but what during the final war there was some sort of giant genocide? So Chaos might have practically been victorious during this final war. However, so many died, that Chaos itself became weak (not enough worshippers). The survivors then turned even more towards technology, which means less worship, thus making the Chaos Gods even weaker...

Ok, so genocide.... We could have it that during the final war many species were exterminated or on the brink of extinction. The Elves could have been almost wiped out (which explains why they couldn't resist the growing new Republic). Species such as Halflings might have died out during the war as well, with a few of them surviving as discriminated minorities in the empire. Ogryns the same thing. Monsters such as Dragons might have finally gone truly extinct, unless those steel dragons are encased dragons...

Few species remain, many in reservations or zoos, but not so much in the wild anymore, as the surviving factions seek their dominance over nature.

Air ship is amazing - I could not allow space in my ouse for that and amount of work should be tremendous )))

Cataclysm for me was always loss for both sides and Chaos suffered the most, however it is always possibility for return into the world. And i like idea of secret Chaos cults.

Pretty much i agree about dragons and other myphical creatures

Different orders of knigts -that is possible -I think here is the possibility of separation based on type of technology -chemestry, pysics, optics, explosions, psychoweaponry

Actually i made different heads for steamgear -which can represent different preferenses:

http://www.coolminiornot.com/223172?browseid=3283516

i separated Republic and Empire based on technology -bipedal engines versus traditional tanks )

I guess that in game terms the separation of the knightly orders could indeed be as you described. But I still think that the Knightly Orders were turned into Companies. It kind of makes sense, as the monsters were defeated and religion started to fade, the need to chivalrous knights also ended. The Orders were without a job and had to adapt. So the first became mercenaries. However, with their resources of old, they sought to become more independent, thus also producing their military wargear.

So these newly formed states (Republic, Empire, etc) started to need additional forces in their armies besides the usual conscripts. The Knightly Orders became privatized armies that were fully self sustainable.

It's very possible that such Knightly Orders also exist in Bretonnia, Tilea and Estalia. However, they would lack the networks that those companies in the Republic and Empire have. However, this doesn't mean they are weaker.

I could imagine that the undead would be a Knightly Order/company from Sylvania, dealing in certain necromantic technologies... Zombie soldiers, and more dangerously...Ghouls, who would be akin to those Super Soldiers from Wolfenstein. Basically an undead version of the Spice Marines.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm throwing every little idea I've at you because this project really got me pumped!

I'm doing more thinking on the undead. Zombies and Ghouls are probably made through Warpstone radiation. Skeletons however are a bit more difficult, and then I saw these. What if instead of normal skeletons, you'd have clockwork skeletons? Speaking of clockwork drones, you should check out this Doctor Who episode, it has clockwork robots in it.

Undead for me are just good for necrotechnologies...vampires and other are hidden as mmagic powers collapsed. Some cults are possible? Sylvania surived? but very poorly inhabited
Idea of merchnaries orders is great!
