  1. Intermission: 'The World Eater'

    This week, I am away due to family circumstances. We should be back to regular service next week.

    Jane hated space almost as much as Astartes.

    "We're progressing to the infiltration point now. Have you everything you need, doctor?" asked the Astarte in a voice that conveyed an implacable professionalism, combined with quiet yet sincere concern for her well being.

    Jane stared blankly, envisaging him begging for a chocolatey treat.

  2. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 3.8- Precariat, or Precarious Proletariat

    Precariat, or Precarious Proletariat

    To be a member of the Precariat is to be despised. Poorer than any other class, deprived in every conceivable way, with next to nothing in the way social and cultural capital, the Precariat live, from birth to death, with no hope of escape from their misery, or the mitigation of their suffering. This situation is made worse through their presentation in the media, where they are invariably held up as at best, responsible for their lowly position

    Emergent Service Workers

    A relatively new, and almost exclusively younger class of Phylolael society, The Emergent Service Workers make up approximately 19% of society, and are characterised by both relatively poor economic capital, but reasonable household income; indeed, most such households survive well, albeit frugally. Working in sectors which are by and large either unskilled, or else requiring little training, this class characterised by having only a moderate number social

  4. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 3.6 - Traditional Working Class

    Traditional Working Class

    The oldest of all the classes, the Traditional Working Class have very little money, very little culture, and very little power. Despite this, in many ways, it is the backbone of Phylolael society; what culture it does have, in many ways, embodies the past of Phylolaem, and this past influences the present significantly. This is the class with the oldest members, and as a result, has a great deal of experience, as well as meaning many own properties, however

    New Affluent Workers

    Making up about 15% of the population of Phylolaem, the New Affluent Workers come from any and all of the species which occupy the continent. Mostly made up of younger members of the species, or else those who are only just emerging into the new roles the Kepler Covenant has made possible, this is a class group which is extremely active socially, as well as showing interests in any aspects of culture and art which are new. This group has a middle level of economic

  7. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 3.4 - The Technical Middle Class

    Technical Middle Class

    A small, distinctive new class group, the technical middle class is highly prosperous but has little interest in either society, culture or the arts. Distinguished by its social isolation and cultural apathy, the technical middle classes are interested primarily in self-advancement and acquisition. Dominated almost entirely by young E’Krati and Bifrosti, the class is concerned with the acquisition of wealth above all things. Highly skilled, often in extremely

  10. Forging Your Narrative

    52 Weeks of 40K - Week 4



    Having come to the miniature wargaming hobby from years of role-playing games, I’ve embraced the idea of using my miniatures to tell a story of epic conflict in the 41st Millennium. I wholly believe even the most competitive tournament player can increase his and his opponent’s enjoyment of this hobby by peppering their games with bits of a story ...
