‘Warhammer 40,000’ for Beginners: Part 1

Warhammer 40,000: Dark Imperium, also known as “8th Edition,” is here.

There have already been hundreds of hours of battle reports and reviews of the new game from various outlets. Games Workshop and its Community team have gone into overdrive, promoting and explaining the newest incarnation of their most beloved game.
