Bit of an odd post this but I have been thinking about how all the Warhammer Worlds could fit together and if they can exist as “one”. In the end I have come up with the following timeline which fits well for me:
The Old World/The World that Was: The “original” world of WFB & WFRP, created by the Old Ones. The Old World is destroyed by Chaos at the End Times.
Age of Myth: Sigmar & Dracothian unite the gods and form the Mortal Realms.
Age of Chaos: The big bad are back and wreck house in the Mortal Realms.
Age of Sigmar: The gates of Azyr are opened, the Realmgate Wars, the forces of Order fight back against Chaos.
This is my leap of faith:
At the end of the Age of Sigmar, the Old World is reforged by Sigmar as Earth. This would explain the geographical and cultural links between the Old World and modern Earth. Sigmar himself is reborn with the world as the Emperor, appearing in Anatolia at the dawn of civilisation.
End of leap.
Age of Terra: Based on Earth/Terra, mankind begins to colonise the nearby planets & stars.
Dark Age of Technology: Mankind reachers it’s cultural and scientific zenith spreading through the galaxy.
Age of Strife: Well that doesn’t last long, Terra collapses to factional warfare, nukes, bio weapons, cats & dogs living together. The Emperor unifies Terra and then the former colonies of mankind using the Thunder Warriors/proto-Astartes.
Age of Imperium: The Emperor founds the Imperium using his Adeptus Astartes and Primarchs. I bet this goes well...
What do you think? Makes sense? Square peg/round hole?
