Aren't they RTS games?
Tabletop wargames, actually. There are RTS vidya games of Warhammer 40k, too, though, and there are P&P RPGs and dozens of books and whatnot. It's a huge franchise.
Warhammer 40k is basically the original grimdark, or at least the franchise most commonly associated with grimdark. FOR IN THE GRIM DARKNESS OF THE FAR FUTURE THERE IS ONLY WAR.
Seriously though, it's a lot of fun. Just don't take it too seriously or you'll end up with a neckbeard and a ton of debt from buying tabletop miniatures that cost a fortune.
Where's a good place to start?
1d4chan is always the best place to start.
If you get into the table top be sure to look for second hand figures, the new stuff can be seriously expensive.
I really wish there would be more good/great 40k games out there.. Seeing how i don't care for the tabletop :/
never played WARHAMMER 40K but I do love me some heresy memes.
EDIT: Let this post mark my 666th like
A buddy of mine had a table top campaign that literally revolved around a tech priest and a commisar that were at each other's throats because of a ...ancient toaster. Yes that is right, a toaster. Needless to say the campaign was extremely humorous and surprisingly a lot of fun. He even managed to generate an entire narrative around this ancient relic of the past from holy Terra (toaster) and how it was the god emperor's personal toaster before everything went to shit and he got imprisoned in the golden throne.
To give you a quick summary here was the plot;
Guardsmen and tech priest are sent to a planet because of rumor of relics
tech priests find ancient dusty dilapitated toaster and claim it to be a relic
guardsmen get slaughtered by orks
tech priests get slaughtered by orks
orks steal toaster and commisar blames tech preists
tech priests blame commisar and guardsmen
orks make toast
guardsmen and tech priests kill eachother
orks make more toast (needless to say the orks make a crap ton of toast in the narrative)
orks kill everyone
All hail the holy toast making relic of Terra
Wouldn't that count as Heresy?
Too late, lol!
I have been reading this and enjoying the grand tales very much.
Here's some heresy for ya: while I love the universe of Warhammer 40k, I think the actual table top game is fucking garbage.
That's pretty damn enjoyable.
Makes me want to a DH play-by-post game. Any forums you could recommend for that that aren't too noob unfriendly?
