Series: Your Complete Guide on How to Play Warhammer 40K

This is a series of articles to help teach people how to play Warhammer 40K. The goal of this series on how to play 40K is to teach you what you should be looking for when choosing an army. You will also learn effective ways to learn the rules of the game, making it a far less daunting task. I will also help you with what you should be doing in your first game, so that you walk away excited to learn more.

The biggest thing that I hope everyone learns in this series is how to embrace the hobby, because at the end of the day, the game of 40K is a hobby. It’s a large and all-encompassing hobby: modeling, conversions, painting, army list creation and playing games. There are a lot of aspects involved, and they all have their place, though everyone tends to prefer one aspect to another. It’s through the collaboration of all those aspects that Warhammer 40K is what it is, an amazing game.

Please, check out the articles, and hopefully you find them useful in learning how to play Warhammer 40K. For the veteran players, you may also find a thing or two of use in the series. I have provided links to resources throughout the series, useful to new players and old players alike.
