It was 1994. Five years before, Games Workshop had launched their famous strategy tabletop game Space Hulk, and they'd already supplemented it with expansions like Deathwing, Genestealer, and Space Hulk Campaigns. It was a couple of years early to see it re-edited, and many more before the version we know nowadays appeared. Back then, it must have seemed like everything was said and done. Something vital, however, remained to see the light:
The Genestealers' invasion of the Imperium proceeded distressingly well.
"We must boost morale in the Legiones Astartes or perish", said Chapter Master Vespasian after the fall of the planet Necromunda. He drummed armored fingers on his Command Throne.
"Perhaps we might present some merry entertainment to ligh…

Warhammer 40k Wiki has recently achieved a new milestone with the creation of its 5,000th article (Thank you, Codex: Imperial Knights)! This means that over 3700 high-quality articles have been added to this wiki and all 5,000 have been rewritten since I refounded it as Lead Administrator in May 2010. This is an extraordinary achievement that owes no small debt to the efforts of our primary editors and staff members Algrim Whitefang, Vforvendetta1, Silberstich, and Vo0DoO40k.
Their hard work, creativity and proven dedication to this wiki's effort to provide an experience of quality for our readers unparalleled elsewhere on Fandom deserves recognition, for without their aid this wiki could never have achieved this important milestone. Please…Read more >
My dear fellow adepts!
The malignant scrap-code that has plagued my cogitator has been vanquished! Fortunately the Omnissiah has seen fit to inspire me to buy a new cogitator shortly before the issue arose. Now that everything works according to the Deus Mechanicum’s will I will be able to resume my previous rythm of collaboration. For the glory of the Golden Throne and Mars!Read more >
Hi guys, it's me again...
For those of you who don't know me, I was a contributor to this wiki some years ago. However, I ended up leaving it as I faced a number of things in my life at the time, I was in a bit of a bad situation and had a lot of unpleasant stuff going on at the time. I apologise for any confusion I may have caused at the time!
Anyway, I'm back now, ready to embrace 40k once again. So, what's changed in my four year sojourn from the hobby?
P.S. I also apologise for the abomination of a fanfic that I wrote a few years back. I was younger then, cut me some slack! XDRead more >
(was off this site for a bit, thew that time I tried to think of ways to not look like an idiot here, so I'll leave my random questions and thoughts here, and post actual related questions and actual info or advice on the main forums to not trigger anyone else, if I make myself look like an idiot again, don't hesitate to tell me exactly what I did wrong so I can improve)
So lately I'v been doing a lot of kit bashing and painting, also I'v had thoughts about making a second army. in any of your guys opinions, what custom colour sceeas work best for which factions?
Also I had the idea to present a few of my custom unique unit models made by kit bashing and my normal models regularly painted to get any opinions from anyone here, would it be be…Read more >

"You forget; our bodies are mere tombs for the true nature of our spirits. And once one has had a taste of freedom, there's no telling what forces they may unleash." -- Nelri Scholar
The mysterious beeing called "Emperor of Man" is the immortal leader of the entirety of mankind and their galaxy spanning imperium in warhammer 40k. He is one of the most central figures in all of warhammer and his doing impacted the universe in such an extensive way that it's kinda hard to talk about anything inside 40k without mentioning him.
The warhammer lore is constantly growing in size but some important topics are still pretty unclear. One of this said topics is the Emperor of Man himself.
Although his origins and intentions are still mostly in the dark (l…Read more >
T model I added to the wiki's image repository. ]]oday started out in a lull, at least until the Lead Admin started editing again. I added a few new images, but it is yet to be seen if any are to be added into a gallery. Still have yet to actually make a text-based expansion to an article.
I also started linking where I retrieved my images, since that was an issue.Read more >

I also managed to stop a fanmade article from staying on here, as it violated this database's policy, by contacting an admin. Hopefully there are more victories for the Greater Good here that I have yet to see.Read more >
The Horus Heresy - Betrayal at Calth VR Game!
The Warhammer 40K universe is expanding into virtual reality with the turn-based tactical adventure The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth, which is entering the Early Access portal for unfinished games on the Steam distribution service soon. Developer Steel Wool Studios announced the game on Dec. 5, and it is promising to deliver a larger more dynamic version of the Betrayal at Calth table-top experience from Games Workshop, the Warhammer owner and publisher.
The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth works both on PC and with PC-based virtual reality headsets. The VR experience could prove the big draw here for Warhammer 40,000 fans who also happen to have an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. The first-person VR persp…

Hi im new to this wiki.Read more >
This is a blog that will chronicle the journey of five Lions Sable Assault Marines and their transformation from base-ness to greatness. The objective of this blog is to accomplish two things: 1) to help those that are in love with this hobby locate, buy, paint, and play Warhammer 40k without breaking their bank and 2) to provide some fluff around my custom Dark Angels Successor Chapter, the Lions Sable. Parts of this blog will be serious. Parts of this blog will be funny. And some parts of this blog might not make any sense at all. Just as planned.
So without further ado, I present Rip & Tear.
The first part of building any army is, at the risk of sounding obvious, buying the miniatures. However, if you are a normal person the price of a …

Do you really love the lore of the Warhammer 40k universe but shy away from the tabletop game because you have no idea whats going on? Or where to start? Or how to do anything? I know I certainly did. My entry into this hobby came when I was in 7th grade 10 years ago. I was a big Tau guy back then, so I saved as much money as I could and went out and bought a Codex, two Fire Warrior teams, one Vespid Stingwing squad thingy, and a Kroot Shaper. Flash forward through some terrible paint jobs, and I finally got my army on a table against a real opponent. He ran a Necron army with a Necron Overlord, two sqads of Necron Warriors, and a squad of Flayed ones. Needless to say, my Tau were absolutely wrecked. I mean bad. So bad. I couldn't understa…

The Lions Sable is a successor chapter of the Dark Angels that was believed destroyed during the Forgotten Wars (580.M31-632.M32) in pursuit of the Fallen Angel known as Cypher. This Wiki page does a great job of summarizing the lore that the Lions do have and how they actually died. However, I began wondering, what if the Lions Sable survived? This gave birth to an ongoing project that I hope will be my crowning achievement in the 40k hobby. Using the Wiki entries as a template, I will build the backstory of the Lions Sable and publish lore on their survival and current status, color schemes, and how that will all translate to the tabletop. I hope to document the process and upload pictures and status updates as they occur. Realistically …

The first battle I'll showcase is a skirmish with the forces of the Space Marine chapters; Blood Raven and Ultramarine. Fighting by their side is a detachment of the 412th Imperial Guard. The inquistion themselves has also deemed this battle worthy of joining. After a hard fought victory on 4 warbands of Chaos (Death Guard, Thousand Sons, Emperors Children and World Eaters), I will be showing you the amassed army of the factions that managed to purge the powers of Chaos from this world.…Read more >

So you may be answering... which are my favourite armies and why?Banner]]
Well, if you have read my profile or the previous blog entry, my two favourite armies are Ultramarines and Space Wolves, two of the most ichonic chapters of the loyalist Space Marines.
Why I chose these ones?
- About the Ultramarines, the answer is very simple: when I knew the game, about 1995, they were the army that my friend (the one with the Marneus Calgar miniature I spoke about in the first entry) was playing in 2nd Edition. Then 3rd came, in 1998, and with it my fully love for the game. I started buying boxes and blisters of Space Marines... and until now. What I most loved about the Ultramarines was their "roman"-esque organisation for the army, the flu…

Hello folks, this is my first time writing a blog post so I'll try my best.
So, a topic I wanted to discuss with you people that came into my mind I wanted to talk about it. Is Big E really a hero? We all know he is extremely powerful but what I am talking about is his actions and moral decisions. Can we really consider him as the savior of mankind? I mean, yes he united Terra, built an Empire so big that it humbles Palpatine and many more, but what about his other acts? I'm gonna skip the part how he treats his "sons" entirely, as daddy issues are not that important to be a point in here. But consider these facts carefully please:

With this entry I want to start a series of Opinion/Debate entries on this, my own blog inside this big Wikia.
To get started, I will talk about what I like the most about wargaming and, more on the spot, about Warhammer 40,000.
Of course, as an 80´s-born kid, I grew up watching unnacountable TV hours: cartoons, shows like McGyver, A-Team, Star Trek, and I think we were lucky to live that amazing sci-fi movies like The Terminator, Star Wars, Back to the Future, and many others... My interest in Sci-Fi was only starting!
It was when I was 15 years old when one friend of mine came to our school with a miniature of a Space Marine (of course, a metal one). It was the old Marneus Calgar, not the enthroned one, just the next one, fist in the…Read more >
Hello, fellow servants of the Warhammer 40k universe!
I just wanted to tell you that the Spanish Wiki admins reached an agreement with your own admins back in december, and therefore some of us will be working for some weeks here, in order to link your English articles to our own Spanish ones, and vice versa. Some of these 'interlinks' were added already five years ago (e.g., Adeptus Mechanicus). I hope this doesn't disrupt your work, and don't hesitate to give me a shout if you find any of my boys harms your articles in any way.
My boss, Lord Eledan, will also be working on improving your frontpage, based more or less on our own template: Wikihammer 40k.
As for me, as some of you may have noticed, I'm working on a thorough revision of the sour…Read more >
Fall of Cadia: Gathering Storm III - Rise of the Primarch!Article courtesy of Warhammer Community
A galaxy-wide announcement has been made today, which has the possibility of shaking the very foundations of the Warhammer 40,000 Universe in the most profound ways possible. The storm breaks! Despite the best efforts of the Inner Circle at Games Workshop, it looks like a copy of March's issue of White Dwarf has escaped from the impenetrable iron-clad citadel-prison at the centre of their fortress-monastery (GW blames Cypher).
The secret is out: what GW has had up their 10,000-year old sleeves for the final climatic installment of the Gathering Storm trilogy. In the new installment, Gathering Storm III: Rise of the Primarch, a notorious Fallen Angel…

Greetings fellow Adepts of the Warhammer 40K Wiki! Once again, I bring to you another blog in which I'll share with you some of my favorite DIY ('Do It Yourself') Chapters I've either created or discovered over the years on the internet. This week, let me introduce you to another one of my favorite DIY Chapters - the Castigators!
The Castigators are a rare Successor Chapter of the now-extinct Black Consuls Chapter. Created during the 14th Founding sometime between 975-991.M31, the Castigators have earned a reputation as staunch and stalwart guardians of the Imperium in the millennia since their inception. The Adeptus Mechanicus birthed the nascent Chapter from the gene-legacy of Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines, and it is said …

Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War IIIInterview with Philippe Boulle by Wikia and Wikihammer 40k
- Wikia: The trailer has left many intrigued. In fact, there are several theories on the internet about it. We could regain our sleep if you cleared some of its meaning.
- Philippe Boulle: [laughter] Well, the trailer is really designed as a sort of surreal mood piece. It’s not a direct link into the story, other than showing that there’s a conflict between the three races, and that it really has reverberations larger than them. It’s sort of that cycle of war and death. We really wanted to play up that theme, and then, in the story, in the campaign, we have an expression of that theme, which is more plot-based. The plot is about a mysterious planet, and an as…

So just about every article on this wiki derived from the codex's after 5th Edition, all the Imperial Armour Books, and all the Horus Heresy Forgeworld books (i.e. the majority of material) is directly copy and pasted from the codex. Sometimes you get the same paragraphs straight from the books copy and pasted word for word multiple times on the same page. If Gamesworkshop ever notices this they're going to shut this place down. It also goes against wiki policy. Was wondering what the thoughts of the community of solving this problem, as it's pretty far-reaching and nearly every article I've seen here has examples of it.Read more >
