Best system to run warhammer fantasy with?

(1/6) > >>

Ocule:
Title is self explanatory, i'm looking for a game to run warhammer fantasy with or a game inspired by the warhammer fantasy setting. As of right now nothing is really off the table, but i'm looking at warhammer fantasy roleplay 1st, 2nd or 4th edition, GURPS, warlock! Savage worlds, Open d6 or some variation of BRP.

I got quite a few recommendations the only one that i'm not keen on is the one by mr. fox, he's a cunt and i'm not sure i would want to play his game even if i got it for free. (I think i actually did get it for free but the dude is such a POS it soured the grapes for me)

HappyDaze:
I really liked WFRP 2e. I think I might like WFRP 4e, but I've not played it yet. It has more crunch than 2e, but I'm not sure that's necessarily a good thing. Still, if you like lots of bits for your players to toy with, 4e still has the WFRP feel down, and their products are beautiful. Most recent pdf even allows ogre PCs (subject to GM approval, of course).

shoplifter:
I'd probably go with 2e, but you're going to have a rough time getting hard copies of most of that at this point. 4e added in some (imo, needless) crunch, but there are plenty of posts out there with house rules that you could pull it out or modify. For the most part, 2e and 4e are generally compatible though.

Tubesock Army:
I'd use Zweihander. It's sleeker than WFRP4, and there is a fan made rule expansion to play using Zwei rules and WFRP setting:
