FOR THE EMPEROR!
Warhammer 40,000 At Andy's Random Stuff
IN THE GRIM DARKNESS OF THE FAR FUTURE, THERE IS
Warhammer 40,000, (WH40K, or simply 40k), is a science
fiction/fantasy miniatures war game sold by Games Workshop. It is set in our
galaxy, but 40,000 years in the future when Mankind is the master of a
sprawling interplanetary empire known as the Imperium that encompasses
millions of planets and untold trillions of citizens. The Imperium, however,
is constantly under siege from alien horrors and even traitorous humans bent
on the destruction of all order in the universe. Players in this game
collect an army of models for a chosen faction, and then do battle against
other players on a tabletop studded with scenery that could include forests,
volcanoes, and bombed-out buildings.
My chosen faction is the Imperial Guard, or IG, which is
the most numerous of all the Imperium's armies. The IG's tactics center
around massed infantry attacks backed up by tanks and artillery. I found
this appealing because I love tanks, and I like the idea that the troops in
my army are "real" people, not hulking alien monsters or genetically
engineered super beings.
Below, this page will contain pictures of my army, hobby
articles, battle reports, and the like.
