    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.

    If you get into the table top be sure to look for second hand figures, the new stuff can be seriously expensive.

    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
    the end.

    All hail the holy toast making relic of Terra

    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?
