What got me interested in Warhammer was the quote “It’s the game where you start out thinking you’re playing D&D, only to discover you are in fact playing Call of Cthulhu.”

It’s all true too. Warhammer is fantasy painted black. Any rules system which includes fake eyes and artificial legs in the equipment list is trying to tell you something. Usually, it’s “RUN AWAY!”
What’s great about it though is that it brings out the best role-playing skills (and dark humour, but that’s another matter) from the players. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.
