Have you guys seen this?

I don't know if basing a children's books series on a game staring genocidal, fascistic, religious fanatics hacking each other apart with chainswords is ethical, but I'm sure I would have loved these when I was a kid.

So, the Edith Hamilton version of Warhammer?

Sanitised you mean? I've never read any of Edith Hamilton's work.

Maybe Thomas Bowdler might be a more appropriate parallel.

But given your description: "genocidal, fascistic, religious fanatics", Kipling or G. A. Henty might fit. :D

Harsh on Kipling.
Probably on Henty too.
Both undoubted British, no -English - Imperialists certainly, but fascistic and genocidal?
Those are foreign traits you are thinking of old chap - Belgian and Prussian things. Awful bounders, what do you expect?

This week,Little Marneus Calgar and Wossname Chaosman have an argument, and the emperor explains why it's good to share, but also good to cleanse with Fire and Sword sometimes.

My Dear Lads,

Perhaps I exaggerate.

Nah -- for anything with "Warhammer" in the title, the only way to go is full 'roid (ster, not hemor -- though maybe a bit of the latter :D).

In the interest of international balance, I should include TR, whose manly story, and genocidal attitude towards the American Indian, inspired many a boy's cap-gun slaughter of Redskin Savages. Bully!

Now where'd I put my copy of "By Sheer Pluck"?

Well, Gonzo is clearly an avatar of Tzeentch.

Do they actually work on more up to date pcs?

The few GW p/c games I have all refuse to work on anything with Windows 7
