Warhammer 40,000’s space fantasy is set in a fictional future during the 41st millennium AD. Its various factions and races include the Imperium of Man, a decentralized yet totalitarian interstellar empire that has ruled the vast majority of humanity for millennia, the Orks (similar to Warhammer Fantasy Orcs), the Eldar (similar to Elves in Warhammer Fantasy Battle), and Daemons (very similar in both the Warhammer 40k and Warhammer Fantasy Battle universes), among others.
The background and playing rules of each faction are covered in the game’s rule books and supplemental army ‘codex’, along with articles in the Games Workshop magazines, White Dwarf and Imperial Armour. The game’s miniatures are produced by Citadel Miniatures and Forge World.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Several supplements released for the eighth edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle focused on the “End Times”, an event which led to the almost total destruction of the Warhammer world and the death of most of the aforementioned world’s population. The eight Mortal Realms serve as the new primary setting for Age of Sigmar.
Following the destruction of the original Warhammer world by the forces of Chaos, Sigmar floated aimlessly through outer space, clutching onto the metal core of the previous Warhammer world. After a long passage of time, he was rescued and befriended by the great celestial dragon Dracothion, who led Sigmar to the “Mortal Realms”: eight planes of existence connected by portals called “realmgates”, one of which was bestowed upon Sigmar to rule by Dracothion. Souls were drawn to these realms, with some being survivors from the previous world and others new. Sigmar forged alliances with these peoples and their respective gods as civilization was re-established in the Mortal Realms.
This growth was short-lived, however, as the Forces of Chaos struck again, invading the Mortal Realms. Led by Archaon, the Chaos dominated seven of the eight Mortal Realms, sparing only Sigmar’s realm, Azyr. The civilizations and alliances Sigmar strove to make were ultimately destroyed in the Chaos invasion. Angered, Sigmar created the mighty Stormcast Eternals, and, with them, led the fight against the Chaos, thus beginning the Age of Sigmar.
Necromunda is a skirmish tabletop war game that was produced by Specialist Games (a division of Games Workshop). In Necromunda, players control rival gangs battling each other in the Underhive, a place of anarchy and violence in the depths below the Hive City. As in its parent game Warhammer 40,000, play uses 28 mm miniatures and terrain.
Being a skirmish game, gangs are usually limited to around nine models, but as a result game play can become more detailed. Unlike Warhammer 40,000, Necromunda also allows players to develop their gangs between battles, gaining experience, gaining and losing new members or equipment, according to a set of rules. Gangs which frequently win games acquire more credits (money) and fewer injuries and so are able to grow throughout a campaign.
Rules-wise, the game draws heavily from the second edition of Warhammer 40,000, and the ruleset is commonly considered to be better-suited for the type of skirmish games Necromunda encourages. Necromunda also stands out from most other games by Games Workshop by having a more 3-dimensional table layout, with buildings generally having multiple floors, interconnecting walkways and bridges. The terrain is constructed to simulate a hive city on the planet Necromunda, a dystopian futuristic city resembling a termite mound many miles high.
