I is for Imperium

Imagine Dune, Star Wars, Tolkien, punk and 2000AD put into a blender and made into a wargame. That's 40K (the first edition at least).

The Imperium are the good guys and they are a bunch of fascist, xenophobic, miliatarists. Can you tell it was written by young men in the 1980s?

Nightmare fuel
I never noticed when I was a kid that the jaw of the Emperor of Mankind is distended in an eternal scream. Just as well.


  1. It was the old Thrash/death metal band Bolt Thrower that first drew me into 40k...and I have loved it ever since.


  2. What an amazing 'gaming' site you have. Most of the words and lingo are unfamiliar to be, but it all looks very cool. Dropping by on the A to Z Challenge.

    1. Hi Kathy, thanks for dropping in - love your book club A to Z idea.
