The Warhammer 40,000 universe is a vast, dark and dangerous future where the kingdom of humanity is under siege from all sides. It's a gothic dystopian setting with massive armies, invincible heroes and terrifying villains.

Humanity's main agent in this reality, the Empire, is a bastion of order against the chaos of alien races and the evil forces of the warp. The universe is teeming with diverse and monstrous races, each seeking to survive or expand, often at the expense of the others.

At the center of the Human Kingdom are the Space Marines, genetically engineered super-soldiers who fight relentlessly to protect humanity. But even they pale in comparison to the horrors lurking in the darkest corners of the universe.

Warhammer 40,000 is not only about war, but also about politics, betrayal, struggle for resources and survival. This is a universe where the concepts of good and evil are confused, and survival often trumps morality.
