Default Other Kingdoms

Ok I was going over the warhammer world on lexicanum, I noticed it mentioning an island off the coast of Cathy called Nippon, I'm assuming that's warhammer's version of Japan, not to mention that's also the Japanese name for it and is in the same position. Does anybody know anything about it other than the name.

I know a few players who have an "Niponese" army using the Empire rulebook (and not taking steam tanks) some fantastic work has gone into making them and on the table they look amazing

Do you have any pics?
I'm having my VC army be based on a traveling necromancer, count as VC since I found out the GW nerfed the nec, so I can have kit bash to my hearts content.

I believe that Skaven from clan Ishin are trained there to become assasins.

I remember it being said that they were trained in the east, that would make sense, based their training off of ninjas.

I suggest looking at this fan-made Nippon Army book:

http://issuu.com/m4cr1ii3n/docs/warh...0100908_225253

Not to mention his other books:

http://warhammerarmiesproject.blogspot.com/

NOTE: Of course, none of it is canon -- in fact, looks like most of the ideas in there are straight from Legend of the Five Rings. Still, interesting. ;)

Hte to correct others but it is known that Eshin was trained in Cathay, not Nippon.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT
