In the bleak darkness of the distant future, there is only war. This is the motto of Warhammer 40,000, also known as Warhammer 40K or simply 40K. It is a futuristic and dystopian sci-fi universe produced by Games Workshop, a British company responsible for creating miniature war games. First introduced in 1987, the Warhammer 40,000 universe exists in a world terrorized by strife and war.

Warhammer 40K features elements of futuristic technology, supernatural fantasy, and plenty of warfare. The main game features battles between various factions, including the future Human Empire, Eldar, Orcs, and various Chaos forces, using miniature models of soldiers, vehicles, and weapons. Books, audio and video games set in the Warhammer 40K universe are also popular, offering fans a wealth of lore and history to delve into.

Warhammer 40,000 is not just a game or a universe, it is a global phenomenon, a unique subculture in the vast world of gaming and science fiction.

The Warhammer 40,000 universe is a vast, dark and gritty sci-fi setting filled with epic stories and incredible detail. Humanity, ruled by a divine emperor, spread across the stars and colonized a million worlds in a vast empire. However, it is on the brink of destruction due to numerous threats both from within and without.

The Chaos Forces, monstrous beings from a parallel dimension, wreak havoc and madness. Horrific xenos races such as the mysterious Necrons, the prosperous Orcs, and the proud Eldar challenge humanity's dominance. Even within the Empire, there are many treacherous heretics, witches, and mutants who threaten from within.

But there is hope. Genetically enhanced and spiritually pure, the Space Marines are a stronghold of the Empire. From the shadows, the Inquisition tirelessly hunts threats to humanity's survival. It is a place where only war takes place in the bleak darkness of the distant future, offering endless possibilities for heroic storytelling and complex battles.
