This is a collection of my fan fiction concepts derived from Games Workshop’s Warhammer mythos. These concepts describe my interpretation of Warhammer and do not exactly match what many consider ‘canon’. However I like the idea of the Black Library’s concept of working with an ‘expanded’ Warhammer universe that goes beyond the war game’s restricted background. The expanded background delves into a much richer setting. These concepts of mine start from the expanded setting and I run with it.
I’m a huge fan of the dark gothic universe of 40K, and spend many hour in the small hours chatting way to other fans and musing on the nature of the 40K universe. These concept pages are a collection of ideas that arose from these discussion and grew into full concepts. They are my attempt to explain the madness of 40K and how, flying the face of reason, put forward a structure of how 40K could actually work.
I always had a soft spot for the fantasy version of Warhammer as it was the first war game with miniatures I ever played. It always reminded me of a twisted version Tolkien, far more like the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tales, and perhaps playing up the dark elements of European folklore.
Games Workshop ‘canon’ is often quoted in many a forum argument, and while many game universes do have a strict canonical source that can be quoted as ‘fact’, 40K seems to have a very liberal view of what ‘canon’ is and how the background books, novels and ‘colour text’ should be viewed.
