    I can't help but notice that there is no Australia-esque landmass on the new map - Why is it that a whole continent can be ignored? Even south east asia isnt ignored! *sigh*

    what the hell are you talking about? in the beast of chaos book it has a world map showing the areas infested with beastmen and it has australia down south completely covered with them.

    OMG WHERE'S ICELAND! I CAN'T SEE IT ON A FANTASY MAP!
    I hope you get the point.

    iceland isnt quite the same as Australia (oz is about 82 times the size for one thing) - my point is that the oldest surviving culture on the planet on the oldest surviving bit of rock on earth doesnt make the cut on a fantasy map. so your point is frankly a bit moot.

    the southern chaos wastes look more like the old terra australis which was a figurative counter weight continent and a way of filling in the bottom of the map. Im asking that people have a bit of imagination rather than writing off the idea of a fantasy land in an Oz-location rather than scoffing at it as slightly ridiculous - what makes the idea so crazy?

    Aus would most likely be incorperated into the southern wastes, why? because otherwise they'd have to invent more fluff and new race and then suddenly say "And this HUGE island just appeared". Baiscally tis the same as the north, those wastes stretch the length of the north and would incorperate much of the real world land mass before connecting with the Chaos wastes and Kislev (aka the Russian/Poland etc area).

    GW just decided they didn't want to include it. Big deal, this only a game.

    Apparently there is going to be an Australia 40,000 Penal Legion

    Imperial Guardsmen with las boomerangs and Rough Raiders on kangaroos

    not to mention the Crocodile Hunter hardened veterans

    Why are you looking at me like that?
    Itā€™s not over yet, our legions remain vast, our enemies have dwindled in number generally as losses go this was minor. This war, this World, this Reality will one day be ours!

    Afterall its not as if we're getting any older

    Im not harping about this cos it hurts me deeply, Im more curious as to why people always make (the same old) jokes about any kind of Oz-inspired fantasy realm.

    Wisp - ever heard of Gallipoli?

    The problem with a fantasy setting based on Australia is it has a rather short history. The old world has a medieval basis (knights, peasants etc) as has the orient with the Samurai and Ninja etc. The only real comparison would be to have an Aborigine army, and as I understand it they are a bunch of peace loving happy guys so that is kind of unlikely.
