On the map of the world in Warhammer fantasy battle, the Southlands=Africa.
Southland Orcs='Savage' Orcs, more stupid and primitive than their brethren
Southland Lizardmen=weaker lizardmen, without Slann mage priests
Is it just me, or am I picking up a pattern here which is frankly disturbing? I suppose the Tomb Kings do show some positive attitude towards Africa (although that's not sub-Saharan africa).
What do you guys think of this?
I haven't seen a map of the Warhammer world recently, but why do you associate the Southlands with Africa? There are some places more southern than Africa.

Discussing these sorts of 'political/social' issues is really reserved for the enhanced forum.
& No it isn't racist. The fact that *you* see any link between orcs & africans is the only suspicious thing I can see lol.
I think you're just reading into too much and finding an issue that isnt there.
Mods: close this thread before it turns into a flame war between non-enhanced members.

I agree with closing the thread, it's too volatile. Honestly, I don't think you had any bad intentions with this thread. You're just reading too much into it, i've done the same thing with 40K.
I really can't think of any reason GW would have to put racism in their game. It certainly wouldn't up their profit margin. For example- "hey, did you hear about that racist minis game?" "yeah man, that's awesome we have to try it!"
Ask yourself why in the world would you trust a win loss record? Playing them yourself is the only way to tell.
The true joy in the game is playing down to the last model, no matter the odds.
GW as an international corporation would never include racism in their product. It is not good for business. Please becareful of this type of topic it is a very sensative subject for everyone. Especially in this online environment were people of all cultures and walks of life are together

Or, and here's a nice new concept for you, this is not a map of the earth. It is a map of a game world that does not exist anywhere apart from the imagination of its creators. Trying to find racism is that is trying too hard. What I do find distrurbing, however, is the empty space in your head, right between your ears.

Idinos, simmer down.
Before you hurt yourself, seriously... It was only a light-hearted observation intended for topical debate, but it's gone sour.Oddly enough... I'd say something like that.Originally Posted by Mephistophales
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
Ok thats enough now this is turning into blatent flaming,
If you were trying hard you could find racisim in GW products, especially in the old editions (anyone remember the pygmies or the Hanging Gardens of Bab- E-Lon WFRP adventure?). But that isn't really present now and probably reflected what was deemed genuinly acceptable back in the late 70's early 80's.
Now I think it is time for a mod to come and close this thread.
