Warhammer 40,000 (40k) is a vast, rich universe full of epic heroes, monstrous villains and a host of unique characters in between. Here, you’ll learn more about the forces vying for power, territory, and glory across the galaxy.

The Adeptus Astartes, alongside the vast war machine that is the Astra Militarum and other forces of the Imperium, fight with everything at their disposal to defend Mankind and the Emperor’s realm. The forces of the Dark Gods, whether mortal or daemonic, seek dominion by tearing through the veil of reality itself and letting the power of the Warp flood the galaxy. All the while, alien races – from the barbarous Orks to the technologically advanced Tau Empire, from the ancient empire of the Necrons to their nemeses the Aeldari – look to carve out their own future amongst the stars.

Will you fight for duty or vengeance? Will you raise an army for survival or the sheer bloody joy of the kill? With which force will you wage war in the far future?

Game sizes vary from a few models known as a skirmish all the way up to a full army. So it is up to you how big or small your army is. There are people in the hobby who just paint so you don’t even have to play if you don’t want to.
