First edition, first print paperback of WARHAMMER 40,000 Rulebook, by Andy Chambers, Rick Priestley, Gavin Thorpe, Ian Pickstock & Jervis Johnson. Cover painting by John Blanche and published by Games Workshop Limited, Nottingham, in 1998.

Warhammer 40,000 is a tabletop game for two or more players where you command the forces of the imperium or one of its many enemies. This book provides you with all the rules you need to play, and guides you through collecting and painting your own army of Citadel miniatures.

"It is the 41st millennium and war plagues the galaxy. For more than a hundred centuries Emperor has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the master of mankind by the will of gods and master of a million worlds by the might of his inexhaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology.

To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruelest and most bloody regime imaginable. These are the tales of those times. Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods."

The dark world of Warhammer 40,000, the mother of all dystopian tabletop game settings. An earlier version of the passage above first appeared as an introduction to the 1987 miniatures battle rulebook Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader written by game designer Rick Priestly and published by Games Workshop. In the nearly 25 years since its first publication this passage has grown to keep pace with the ever expanding reach of the 40K universe. Each year new threats to the Imperium of Man are revealed while scribes work tirelessly to document the glory of the Emperor. In this time Games Workshop has also grown the franchise into its own vast empire, some would say with the ruthlessness of the Emperor himself. Warhammer 40,000 is no longer simply a tabletop miniatures game, it is a hobby unto itself and has expanded to other media such as roleplaying games, boxed tabletop games, video games, a vast library of licensed books, and even a direct-to-DVD movie.

232 pages. Illustrated with diagrams, charts and black & white drawings throughout.
