Warhammer is all about bloodshed, displacement, plunder – war. The small miniature boxes are filled with elements and personnel that create a war machine. It is not just a wild fighting spree, rather they are somehow united by common themes.
Some of these thematic underlines create entire nations, worlds, or even conclaves of worlds. On each planet of this fantasy universe, there are gods, warlords, and supreme beings that shape these factions and what they become. Some are partners united by common causes of similar enemies. However it be, this is all about war.
The Leagues of Votann
In the Galactic Core, the Leagues of Votann, also known as the Kin, are a race of semi-humans that settled eons ago. A secretive race, they are led by sentient AIs, called Votann, which were created centuries ago by the original settlers in order to survive.
In this world, a vast amount of knowledge has been preserved, much of it forgotten by the wider species of humanity.
With the birth of Slaanesh, the Eldar race splintered into smaller factions. Rarely coming together, the Aeldari have few leaders who are working to better their species. Yvraine is one of them.
In recent times, a faction of the Eldar has emerged known as the Ynnari, and they seek to awaken Ynnead, the Aeldari god. Yvraine unifies many factions of the Aeldari and is committed to achieving her goals, helping to bring back Roboute Guilliman.
The T’au Empire is one of the younger factions in Warhammer 40k and adheres to the notion that the greater good comes first. This faction is among the most advanced races in the universe.
Among the T’au Empire’s united banner is one exception and one of its most controversial figures: Shas’O Vior’la Shovah Kais Mont’yr, known as Commander Farsight.
Drukhari is one of the most depraved and dangerous races in the galaxy. Captured by the Drukhari can lead to torture and death. They strive to appease Slaanesh to save their souls. Asdrubael Vect leads the largest warband of these people, the Kabal of the Black Heart
