    I guess I'd be a Dark Elf corsair from somewhere near Quintex, but my Black arc is currently docked in L'anguille.

    I either don't exist, am some form of sea monster, or am part of an (as of yet) undiscovered series of islands.

    This is as I live in New Zealand and like many real world maps, the WH world maps completely ignore us.

    Then you are from Lumbria.

    I’m a man of the Empire. But not one of those soft southerners, no! I’m from the North. Either Salzenmund or Middenheim geographically depending on how you interpret it.

    I joined a raid party on North Albion a few years ago. Had to deal with a wee sea dragon whilst mighty hairy cows were staring at me. Got from that loot a cool kind of skirt.
    When drifted I came back safely to Estalia to guard the North Pass from Bretonnian invasor forces and nasty horned beasts.

    Currently waiting for a new DLC to get a new skin and someone to serve once again if coins are abundant.

    Just thought about it, the only people who would be proper Ulthuan High Elves would be people from either Bermuda or the Azores. Gonna be hard to find them here.

    Somewhere in the empire I guess, though it is hard to pinpoint the equivalent locations to central europe. Its based on the holy roman empire after all, which was known to be a mess and all over the place.

    Are the netherlands and belgium marienburg or nordland? Where chezchia? Not were warhammers praaag lies, thats for sure.
    Maybe Ostermark? Is poland a total part of kislev or does it already start in ostland? Where are Austria and the switzerland? Averland and Solland maybe? Or are the grey mountain dwarfs switzerland?

    So all I can guess for me is somewhere in the empire, probably somewhere between Westerland, Middenland and Nordland. So maybe Lauerlorn Forest? Or shall that be Luxembourg? Or is Luxenbourg part of the Westerlands too?

    I think geographically the Empire is more based on modern day Germany and all the Bundesländer. All the Slavic parts of the HRE are rolled into Kislev I guess, hence Praag.

    Nordland = Schleswig-Holstein
    Ostland = Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
    Ostermark = Brandenburg & Saxony
    Middenland = Lower Saxony
    Hochland = Saxony-Anhalt
    Reikland = Nordrhein-Westfalen
    Wissenland = Rheinland-Pfalz
    Averland = Baden-Württemberg
    Stirland & the Moot = Bavaria
    Solland = Saarland
    Talabecland = Hesse & Thuringia

    Some GW Joker put Praag in the middle of nothing instead near Empire borders :/

    Kislev. With strong Empire touch.

    Almost all latinamerica and part of Africa are represented by Lizardmen, that is a huge terrain that could have more potential races, but sadly, it didn't happen.

    Amazons? Pygmies?

    This does not fit, if we are talking about geophraical similarities. E.g. lower saxony has a huge coastline, and its inhabitatns there there have closer ties to the netherlands then to the people living in the central harz or elsewhere in southern lower saxony, historicaly speaking.

    Also the empire of warhammer is not based on modern germany, but on the medival holy roman empire, which included at some point: Austria, Bohemia (Czechia and Slowakia), parts of modern day Poland, the entirety of the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, nothern Italy and more.
    But as feudalsim makes everything complicated it is also difficult to determine which parts were de jure or de facto part of the HRR. Anyway, the HRR was a hot mess of a country and covered terriotory all over central europe. So the empire provines in Warhammer are much more likley to correspond with any of these HRE terrirories, than with modern germany.

    E.g. I often think, that Poland, or at least the terriotories hold by the HRR during medieval periods, fit Ostland quite well, whereas Ostermark fits bohemia the best in geopgraphical terms, with Mordheim as one of the wealthiest cities of the empire (before its destruction) fitting HRR Prag well.
    Reikland would then be the Rheinland or rather the rhine bassin (so the geoprahical regions around the river). In medival times the Rhine bassin was the richest part of the HRE, place of coroniation of its first kings and emperors. So that fits quite well. But in the HRE this region incorperatied not only NRW but also Rheinlad-Pflaz, part of belgium and the Elsass and more.
    And Marienburg appears to symbolize the medival flemish and friesan trade cities, with the rest of the Westerlands containing the other parts of the coastlands.
    But as I said it is hard to pinpoint the exact equivalencies, due to the Empire being a distorted HRE.
