Warhammer 40.000

Warhammer 40,000 is an exciting miniature game set in the 40th millennium of human history. It is considered the most famous and successful wargame of all time.

Also known as Warhammer 40k, the game was created in 1987 by Rick Priestley and Andy Chambers and produced by Games Workshop.

The Universe of Warhammer 40k

Warhammer 40,000 is set in the far future of the 40th millennium.

After a period of great technological advancements and under the leadership of the enigmatic figure of the Emperor and his sons, the Primarchs, the Imperium of Mankind experiences its golden age, exerting near-absolute control over a galaxy inhabited by different alien races, known as "xenos".

However, the dark Gods of Chaos wield their power from the shadows of the Warp, a parallel dimension of immense and pure energy.

Chaos manages to exploit the disagreements of some Primarchs with their father, the Emperor, and their brothers, which turns into an unstoppable hatred that leads to a great war known as the Horus Heresy. After seven years of colossal conflict, the Emperor is mortally wounded and confined to the Golden Throne, Horus, his favored and traitorous son, is slain, and the Imperium of Mankind is left devastated and engulfed in absolute darkness.

Meanwhile, the forces of Chaos are stronger than ever, and the xenos threats advance relentlessly.

All of this gives rise to an endless galactic conflict that fuels the background of Warhammer 40,000.

Game Mechanics of Warhammer 40k

In Warhammer 40,000, the objective is to lead an army and crush enemies in battle.

In each game, usually two players (though it can be more) deploy their miniatures on a tabletop with various scenery elements.

The game is played in turns, during which each player can take different actions with their miniatures.

Although there are rules that provide a clear game mechanics framework, there is a considerable degree of freedom for each side to act. Additionally, each game is played with predetermined conditions that determine the size of the armies and victory conditions.

Dice are used throughout the game to determine the success or failure of different types of actions.

Warhammer 40k Armies

Warhammer 40,000 players must choose the army they will lead into battle. In theory, the different factions are balanced to allow for personal preference in the choice. However, this is not always the case since the game's evolution is constant, with rules expanding or being modified with new mechanics, actions, miniatures, or factions.

Nevertheless, unless you are an experienced tournament player, our advice is to start with the army that appeals to you the most. Keep in mind that an army that may be weaker today could become one of the strongest in a few months.

Currently, in Warhammer 40k, there are numerous races, each of which usually has more specific factions with which to form an army.

Assembling and Painting Warhammer 40,000 Miniatures

Warhammer is much more than a strategy game. In addition to playing against other enthusiasts, the figures need to be assembled and painted, providing countless hours of entertainment.

There are also many enthusiasts who collect miniatures from different armies simply for the pleasure of assembling, painting, and displaying them on a shelf.

Most of the Warhammer miniatures and accessories are made of plastic, although there are some resin or white metal miniatures.

All in all, the universe surrounding Warhammer is vast, and the community of fans continues to grow year after year.
