did you know that we have a collection of short stories? They can be found by writing: Category:Codex Literatus in the search bar of the wiki. We have a little under 20 stories as of now and they vary in length and topic. If you are a writer or an aspiring writer and you have a story to tell, feel free to add to our library. If you like to read, I also suggest you check out our community's stories.
I hope you enjoy,
Hello, Das2Eazy here. Thought I should write about how my chapter came to be. From it's birth in my sleep-deprived mind to where it is now, ~36K words of lore (O_O). I regret to inform you though, that this will be in parts as life is a pain.
Anyways, let's get started.
I'm not entirely too sure if anyone remembers this, but this chapter's roots began at the old WH40k Fanon wiki. It also was not called 'Lightning Wraiths' at the time. Rather, it went by the name 'Laughing Skull', a White Scar successor as well, but with a touch of Blood Angel. The Laughing Skull was a completely different chapter to it's successor. It had been a Codex-deviant chapter, that operated en masse with no reserve companies. Furthermore, as its name suggested, the L…
Hey guys. I'm looking for a battle to put in my favorite chaos character (and own creation) the Warfather.
He has no warband of his own as he's simply a crazed beast that can kill anything and survive the process (cute hun?) and can only truly fight under the command of an extraordinarily powerful sorcerer/apostle.
The enemy can be anyone, from IG regiment, chapter,SoB order. Heck, even other warbands or xenos can do the work as well.
Anyway. Contact me in my discord if you like the idea, read a little bit about him as well, and that's it. May the gods watch over your battles brothers.
Hey, I'm looking for a Sons of Russ Chapter, with which my Moonlight Stalkers could go on a Campaign with and later become good allies. Comment or dicord me if your interested.

Hey guys. Soon I'll be creating a military campaign involving several Imperial forces members, including astartes, krights, guards and more. Although I have some characters of my own, I'd like to "use" your, as to better integrate the community in a major project!
I don't want to say much about the campaign the avoid spoilers, but here goes some details: it will take part during the Indomitus Crusade and it will be a planetary siege battle between the Imperium and chaos. Here follows the list of everything I'd need:
- One Adeptus Custodes shield-captain clad in Aquilon-pattern terminator armor
- One Grey Knights grand master clad in Aegis-pattern terminator armor
- One Astartes captain clad in Indomitius-pattern terminator armor (any lineag…
Am I wrong or was yesterday (12 june 2020) still 2203 articel. Today (13 june 2020) only 2173. Were a a few articel deleted and why or am I wrong? Could me pleas this answer?
I'm looking for some other Chapters or enemies to write a joined story with. I have the Moonlight Stalkers and the Iron Drakes. Is someone open to write a story with those Chapters? Friend or fore, both is cool!
Hi, I was wondering if anyone here wanted to get involved in the
Fractured Imperium Community Project. Essentially it's set in an
Alternate Universe where the Emperor created 40 Primarchs and
Legions instead of 20, and the Horus Heresy never happened.
Instead, an event called the Fracturing split up the Galaxy with
Warp Storms for almost a millennium. After it ended, many Legions
decided to ally with other forces, realising the corruptness of the
Basically in this project you can create your own Primarch for your Legion, as well as choosing what Faction to ally them with. This means that you can have a Legion allied with Necrons or Tau if you want.
If this sounds interesting please check out the main page in the Community Projects…
He sat upon his Meditation Throne with the bearing of a king. The mind impulse unit wires connected to ports at the base of his skull and he closed his eyes. Within seconds, the world and its detectable presence faded away. He opened his eyes and awoke in the immaterium, shifting nebulae-like horrors with terrifying visages ebbing and flowing as a quartet of warships passed through. From where he perceived himself to be standing - no, more akin to floating - he could not make out anything more than one was built in the era of the Great Crusade and three were more modern Imperial craft.

A class planets are vital worlds, essential to the imperium to keep that area/sub-sector etc. They cannot be lost unless something forces them to become useless/destroyed (Warp Storm, Chaos Cult, etc) Examples: Cadia, Terra, Macragge?
B class are hive worlds, forge worlds, or worlds of significant military or strategic importance, but not absolutely vital to the continuation of the imperium. Example…
I'm looking for names of Space Marine chapters based in Segmentum Pacificus for a novel. If you could help that would be great.
I have a little painter program set-up but I was wondering if other stuff exists like something to make my own chapter symbol or something similar. Looking forward to putting all my thoughts together and writing them down officially.
Great news everyone!
The Warhammer 40k Homebrew Wiki has recently achieved a new milestone with the creation of its 2,000th article (Thank you, Solar Falcons and the Camenox Crusade campaign article)! This means that we now have 2,000 high-quality articles have been added to this wiki since its inception in April 2018. Very well done! This is an extraordinary achievement achieved in just under two years. This is primarily due to the efforts of you - our outstanding contributors - and our staff members.
Thanks to everyone's hard work, creativity and outstanding dedication to the wiki in helping provide a quality and unparalleled experience for our readers, seldom found elsewhere within the 40k fandom.
This achievement deserves the utmost recog…

This article is intended as a Hypothetical battle.
We know Guilliman ordered the creation of the Primaris, and the "majority" of Chapters were thankful for their resupply of Marines.
However, two principal situations are brewing in the shadows; some may call it old age, others would say it's intuition and eon's of combat experience. Marneus Calger is getting a little paranoid about the mass influx of "new" troops yet to be fully trusted. He is concerned that other Chapters Master's and Brothers are letting their guard down. Another reason is his role being pushed to the side lines, though he would deny jealousy, and state his loyalty without question, though its human nature.
The other main circumstance is that Calger was right in trusting h…

Here are a few finally things you should NOT do when writing a Homebrew Astra Militarum Regiment:

Begin log… This will be a retelling of my sixth mission as an interrogator.
I was ordered by my mentor to investigate a tech priest suspected of experimenting with the warp, simple enough I thought. We followed the route his ship was expected to use, and by the emperor's grace, after weeks that felt like months of dull searching we found the ship simply drifting not answering our hails. Truth be told I did not like the look of this, my last encounter with a ghost ship was still a very fresh memory. We carefully boarded the ship. As soon as we stepped foot on the ship I got a strange feeling, as if I was being watched. However I simply brushed it off, thought I was being too paranoid because of the previous ghost ship I investigated. The en…

Due to an accident of history, the culture, language, and values of Neus Kandia stand opposite a vast chasm that separates them from the rest of Imperial society. As the opening chapters of Dan Abnett's Horus Rising show, even 5000 years of separation Sixty-Three Nineteen experienced can create a completely separate society
Since i'm moving to Leicester soon for university, it means my life is changing in that I now have access to a community of warhammer players in my universities gaming group, and local group at my games workshop. And a sudden change of a Games Workshop store within walking distance, so ive decided to begin my journey into tabletop 40k by collecting the 3rd "Hunter" Company of my Jade knives.
I figure it would be fun to document and share my experience with you all as i go about it over the next three years of my university experience.

Because my god do I really need it.
Pretty much I have written all of my articles (Argent Leviathans, Ashen Apostles, Foetid Seraphim etc.) with little to no feedback, meaning I have no goddamn idea if people think my stuff is actually good or not and mistakes that could be fixed might still be in there. So pretty much what I'm saying is-
plz give feedback
(Totally didn't do this for the achievement)
Dear blog, why does this site hate me? I follow all the rules and guides but they never work I have even copied pasted some code from other pages But they never work And the how to create an Article Guide is garbage It didn't help me at all It made me want to die Well then I guess I made a weird poem Welp thank you for the achievement This has been a pro gamer move But still WHY DOES THIS SITE FUCKEN HATE ME AND ALWAYS ERROR IN SOME SORT OF WAY NO MATTER HOW CAREFUL I TRY

Everything's in the title. And if I'm writing it out, it's because I feel like I need a lifeline.
For the first time in my life, I'm having suicidal thoughts, and this wiki is definitively one of the thing I like the most. Putting roots here may help me. I think.
But it's possible that I won't even dare update any of my articles or sandboxes in a long time, and I just felt that I owed Algrim, Achilles and whoever else like my articles at least an explanation.
In any case, keeps the articlers flowings, Brothers and Sisters, because I love them !

So, my fannon all centers around the Mandavi Sector. It's west of Ultramar and south of Charadon. It has four sub-sectors, all slightly changed versions of the surnames of professors I had and liked.
- My two main worlds, Heb and their Mechanicus Allies Erendan, are both in the Levan Sub-Sector.
- Saint Amyntikós comes from the Conditta Sub-Sector and most worlds there are important (if at all) because of him.
- The Hamdan Sub-Sector is largely unexplored, although I've mentioned it a couple of times, but there is definitely room to grow.
- Finally, the Mandavi Sub-Sector itself, mostly just the Mandavi System, features the Sector Capital of Mandavi Prime where the local Inquisition is headquartered, the Cardinal World of Kurtzberg (where I'll be devel…
Great news...the Warhammer 40k Homebrew Wiki has recently achieved a new milestone with the creation of its 1,000th article (Thank you, Void Ravens and the War Without End campaign article)!

This is an extraordinary achievement that owes no small debt to the efforts of our outstanding contributors and our staff members.

sorry for my absence, but things have somewhat leveled off in my life so i'm back now, hope i can be of help.
So, I have decide to pack out the oldest lore of my homebrew, from a time where I just got into homebrewing. This is an old and interesting tidbit that I wish to know if it could fit into the lore of the current Templarii Scientae(If I change some things about it to make it more in line with the modern lore).
Each system of the Imperium has its own dangers, but one of the most obscure ones are the crystal mines of Renascar, multiple, seemingly endless tunnels. Housing powerful, psychic conduiting crystals, they have become a stable of the Scienta Templarii in the use for a lot of arcane technology. Mining operations however are beyond tedious, requiring individual squads, due to the mines being very fragile and not allowing heavy machinery.…
Ruminations of Ordination
"Compassion towards the innocent and loyalty to mankind is the savior of the Adeptus Astartes, as it is for all humanity. It separates us from servants of Chaos, and guides us in the footsteps of the Emperor himself."
"Though the humans of the Adeptus Astartes are the second greatest incarnation of mankind, this does not place the value of an unaltered human any lower than our own. To treat those we are charged to protect as our burden, rather than our sworn wards is to defy the will of the Emperor of Mankind."
"Not even in death does Duty end."
"The fate of the heretic can be naught but merciless purgation."
"The place of the Adeptus Astartes is not to lead mankind, but to protect it - from threats both within and wit…

Hello Guys, I am writing the draft for the Wild Hunt's chapter master biography. But now i have a doubt, should i allow him to kill Skyrar? (warlord of Skyrar's dark wolves). In the canon wiki there is no mention of his ultimate fate but i want to be as lore abiding as possible.
0400 Morning Prayer
Day is begun with morning prayer and contemplation within the Cohort Chapel, led by the Cohort Pontifex. The Cohort standard and relics are displayed and brethren repeat their oaths of loyalty to the Chapter and the Emperor. At this juncture, the Centurio may choose to address the brethren, issue orders, make any appropriate announcements (such as awards and promotions) and dispense summary punishments as necessary.
0430 Morning Firing Rites
After prayer is complete the brethren don armor and undertake the first firing rites of the day. A variety of weaponry is used but the emphasis is placed on practice with the Space Marine’s personal weaponry. Awards are made for consistently good marksmanship and punishments are infli…
So, there's something that's always been somewhat pushed aside (to great effect) in the universe that is Warhammer 40,000. Realism. And that's one of it's greatest strengths! Stories about thousands of planets being exterminated because daemons decided they would exist are not only bizarre, but considered in-universe to be called "Tuesday". A once technologically advanced empire that we would consider to be the more common sort of vision for Humanity in science fiction crumbled long ago, and now that empire (if it could be considered the same Empire) is a crumbled shadow of the past. Humanity forgot how to do all it once did for the sole reason that we decided we didn't have to do it anymore thanks to AI; and after it rebelled…
Here we have some old school WH40K humour I found in some dark corner of the 'interwebs' long ago on a now defunct-40K blog Hope you guys get a good laugh:
- Thou shalt not refer to the Adepta Soritas as "Bolter Bitches."
- Orks are not "cute."
- Thou shalt not make jokes about the Imperial Guard's weapons.
- Thou shalt not replace the Librarian's staff with a magic wand.
- Thou shalt not tip the Terminators over during battle.
- Thou shalt not do Spock impersonations around Eldar.
- C-3P0 is not a Necron ambassador.
- Thou shalt not pay someone an Imperial to eat that Squig.
- No, you cannot "Take the Titan for a spin."
- Thou shalt not use thy multi-meltas to light campfires. (in a similar manner, thou shalt not use the Terminator Captain's chainfist to open tins of …
Hello again folks,
Thought I'd share some of my favorite 40K humour with y'all. Enjoy!
So, have you ever wondered what really happened after the Horus Heresy failed? Well fear not! For I possess a rare transcription of the alleged conversation that took place amongst the Traitor Legions as to what actions they should take after epically failing during the Siege of Terra.
(The following is considered apocryphal and quite silly! I take no credit for creating this..only lucked out and stumbled upon it in some lost, dusty old Inquisitorial archive somewhere):
Just thought I would add to this wiki by doing a blog post. I'd like to bring to you something I call a . First up, I'll be bringing to you, an in-depth look at everyone's favorite defenders of Mankind - the Space Marines. So without further ado, I present the Space Marines in their earliest incarnation - the Imperial Space Marines:
last stand on Rynn's World. It was this seminal piece of artwork
that first drew in a lot of fans into the WH40K universe.]]
. A precursor to the later Chaos Space Marines perhaps?]]

Space Marines doing what they do best - kicking arse and taking
names! Love the Marine on the left with the rhino horn on the beak,
and the evil grin.]]
The Penumbral Hydras are a Renegade Space Marine Chapter who come from the stock of the Novus Krakens loyalist Space Marines. They are privy to secrets and information about the original chapter's origins that the Krakens are not. (Figured I'd give this blog thing a try, we'll see how I like it!)
The Blades of the Lion are a 3rd Founding Loyalist Successor Chapter of the lauded and venerable Ebon Knights, whose lineage hails from the ancient Dark Angels Chapter.
First time poster, hoping to put up my current chapter idea but I would dearly like to include custom images much like this. I do not own these images and they are not my work of course, I simply wish to know how they have been made as they look very close to codex quality images / references and I love the style.
i asked the question if there were space marines that specialize in underwater combat they told me the Space Wolves did once against the tau but no actual underwater dedicated space marines and it never left me.
What came to mind: (still no official chapter name)
-gold obsessed (this leads them to find rare minerals that the adeptus mechanicus uses for their titan building)(and that they mine underwater stuff)
-950 to 1000 marines
-a single ship that they defend fiercely (im thinking of just the emperor class battleship)
-prefers not to separate their forces (partly due to the fact they have one ship)
To be maybe added:
-3 Freeblades with modified knights for underwater combat
-20 to 30 tech priests all delighted to find resour…
Greetings brothers and sisters!
Just wanted to bring to everyone's attention some of the recent cosmetic changes around the WH40K Homebrew Wiki. For desktop and laptop users, you might've noticed the renovation of the wiki's shell, changing some fonts and colour schemes to better highlight our grim dark future. For those of you on smartphone, the experience really hasn't changed. Also, check out your User profile page and check out the banners on the top...tried to capture the grim dark look we all know and love! Just some minor changes, but remember, change as any devotee of Tzeentch will tell you, is good! We hope those of you who do access our content in non-mobile fashion like the new upgrades! If you have any suggestions, comments or c…
