Back in 1987 UK based hobby shop Games Workshop released Warhammer 40,000. Little did they know, this little miniatures game grew to become the most popular wargame of all time. All set in a grim dark universe where there is only war, genetically modified, hyper religious super soldiers designed by space Jesus, brutish green skinned Orks and a race of T-101’s who utilize the power of intergalactic Star Gods to harvest the universe to name a few. Throw in gothic architecture, blood, skulls and a couple genocides and you have a formula that was begging to be converted into a game. What they did was not just a cash grab hack job, but a unique take on a stagnating formula.
