A different kind of game


Crimson Fists Space Marine Chaplain wargame miniature. Only 28mm tall in real life.

Warhammer 40K is not the typical board game or video game that many people have become accustomed to.  Warhammer 40k is a science fantasy tabletop miniature wargame.

Jason Brock is a player who has been involved with Warhammer 40K for over 20 years.  He has painted over 300 miniatures, each averaging 28 mm in height.

“Each game typically involves two to four players. Those two to four players each bring an army consisting of anywhere from 30 to 100 meticulously painted miniatures.” – Jason Brock

Warhammer 40K is typically won by the player that achieves the most tactical objectives.  The game can also be won by a player wiping out their opponent’s army.
