Warhammer 40,000 (also known as Warhammer 40K) is a tabletop miniature wargame created by Rick Priestley and produced by Games Workshop. The first edition of the game's rulebook was published in October 1987 with the current, eighth edition, published in June 2017.
Warhammer 40,000 is set in the distant future where a stagnant human civilization is in conflict with alien races and supernatural forces. The models in the game are a mixture of humans, aliens, and monsters wielding futuristic weaponry and magical powers.
Like other miniature wargames, players take part in scale battles using miniature figures of warriors and combat vehicles. Players take turns moving their models around the field and simulate combat between models using the rule system and a set of six-sided dice.
Warhammer 40K is one of the most popular miniature wargames world-wide.
