Warhammer 40,000

Dr Alex Tang

After a busy day of preaching twice and giving a talk, I am happy that I am able to relax by reading a novel on tank warfare. I wish to thank all my prayer partners that literally prayed me through this grueling day. I found this book, Gunheads by Steve Parker at the MPH bookstore. It is a novel about Warhammer 40,000.

From the wiki

The Warhammer 40,000 game setting is a space opera that takes place in a gothic science-fantasy universe. Set in the 41st millennium, most of the major storylines that provide the backdrop and history span over millennia. Central to the Warhammer 40,000 universe are the Space Marines, somewhat anachronistic combinations of genetically enhanced super-soldiers with world-destroying firepower, and crusading knights with an unswerving, fanatical loyalty to the God-Emperor. While Space Marines act as the special forces of the Imperium, the bulk of mankind's military power is found in the Imperial Guard, which consist of billions of regiments, each thousands of soldiers strong. Their quintessential opposition is the Chaos Space Marines, who betrayed the Emperor during the Horus Heresy, led by Warmaster Horus (who was eventually killed by the Emperor). Much of the Milky Way galaxy is controlled by the Imperium of Man, though it is not the only galactic power. Other races include the Orks, a barbaric humanoid green-skinned semi-fungoid race; the Eldar, survivors of an ancient fallen civilization reminiscent of classic fantasy Elves; the Tau, a young and technologically-sophisticated civilization of aliens that work for the "greater good" of their empire and its inhabitants; the Necrons, soulless living metal constructs tricked into slavery by star gods; and the Tyranids, an all-consuming, all-organic, bio-engineered, extragalactic hive-swarm. Each of these races have playable armies. Other playable armies include the Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters, organizations within the Imperium, as well as the fallen Dark Eldar and the capricious Daemons of Chaos.

 

 

 

 

Warhammer 40,000 is a tabletop miniature wargame produced by Games Workshop, set in a science fantasy universe. I have watched a few games being played but am not involved in the intricacies of the game yet.
