The galaxy of Warhammer 40,000 is immense. The setting is inarguably one of the broadest in fiction. With near limitless planets and cultures, it can be home to stories from all kinds of genres. Even better, the 40K setting brings it’s own twist to these genres, creating something unique both with Warhammer fiction and within the genre itself.
This month we’re highlighting some stories that use a specific and clearly identifiable genre to tell a unique story within the Warhammer setting. From Western to Comedy and Fairy Tales to Romance, the galaxy is big enough for all different kinds of stories.

Hyperphagia by Daniel Dolgos – Comedy – Our comedy feature is, unsurprisingly, about orks. Who could blame us though? The orks are a treasure trove of humor… as long as you’re not fighting them, that is. Daniel’s story is about the ork’s best friend: the squig. In particular, it’s about Hungry, a big squig with an even bigger appetite! Hungry is always looking for new friends and new snacks (and they’re often the same thing), and he may have finally found his perfect match.
