You’ll get the most enjoyment of warhammer fantasy if you like History.
Winged Hussars riding bears FTW.
Warhammer was made by History Nerds for History Nerds. It appeals to the sort of person who, when asked “what do you think about the middle ages?” would reply “where and what century?”. The world is old, and the history is actually pretty detailed for the factions for whom history matters, like the High Elves, the Dwarfs and The Empire. The development of the factions in the world matters quite a lot and the ramification of wars in the past affect the world in the present. The culture of the factions in play wasn’t just invented because it’s cool; they developed over time, and for most of it, in a way that makes sense.
The world of warhammer Fantasy heavily parodies and parallels ours, with a bit of Elric of melnibone and conan the Barbarian thrown in for good measure.
That’s why the map looks the way it does, not because it looks cool but because it helps put the factions and their politics in their proper context.
