Pygmies should definitely be add, i know they are controversial, but what games workshop and CA can do is to remake them, so they remove all controversial things about them, and add them. They would add a lot of flavor to the game.

    They are already in the game actually, CA just replaced all the controversial stuff such as their entire appearance, their geographical location and their name.

    GW and CA will never ever touch Pygmies even with a kilometre-long stick.

    CA and GW should just forget that these racist stereotypes ever existed.

    If they entirely revamp them from scratch to have non racist stereotypes then sure, I'd be in favour for it but the current pygmies should be forgotten forever.

    They were a tasteless part of the lore.

    They aren't needed as how they were. And if they are to be remade, CA and GW should be very careful

    GW won't ever touch the Pygmies for the simple reason that they would have to acknowledge that they existed first.

    I would love to see factions add characters and units of colour, but this is not the solution.

    You know what one of the solutions is? Dogs of War. The perfect opportunity to add units OF ALL KINDS.

    Removing all controversial material from the pygmies would be equivalent to just removing the pygmies.
    Remember: there's no reason to get angry on the forums. Be polite and respectful towards other people's opinions, even if you disagree.

    Gosh, a brand new forumite with controversial opinions? Well I never!
  • ShermanSherman Member Registered Users Posts: 954

    I unironically agree, they need only to change the design of them. Racism discussion aside, they are too much ultra-old hammer to feel cool.

    Dude,they give females flat breasts to avoid being controversial, do you think they add black humans with red lips?

    And then you wonder why your post gets closed?

    As a subfaction of a major one maybe, I would be down to adding halflings to Empire as well. In a game filled with stereotypes or caricatures I don't really see the problem. But what they shouldn't be is a race of their own, that would be downright ridiculous and more something for the modding community.

    People think for a second the name pygmy is basically tied to racial stereotypes which is honestly beyond redemption


    And can not be copy written probably the only part GW care about.



    I am 100% on board with a African culture coming for wh fantasy i think its long pver due.

    There are plenty of material to work form in African cultures from south to north to central .

    But it can not be called pygmy for the sake of the setting to shed its racial slurs.

    And well for Gw so they can copy write it.

    A Wakanda like Race combining Old One tech with Kushitian, Nubian and Zulu aesthetics would be absolutely amazing.

    I just feel like this is a certain someone just dodging their ban, they had a particular obsession with bringing up this particular one.

    The only one I can think of is Equix, was he banned? He has been weirdly quite.

    Pretty certain they got a temp ban, but may have run its course at this point.

    Rad.

    That said, if we ended up getting a NEW race of Southlands humans instead of Araby, I'd be pretty ****ed off.
