My Complete and Utter Warhammer 40,000 Bibliography

June 3, 2015 18 comments

Here’s the second instalment in my “Complete and Utter Bibliography” project. The first one covered Warhammer Fantasy, and now its time to move on to the 40th Millenium.

The plan is to post a new instalment at the beginning of each month. Next up: Call of Cthulhu and other Mythos-related projects.

I was never as closely involved with 40K as I was with Warhammer Fantasy, but like everyone in the Games Workshop Design Studio at that time I pitched in as needed. I worked fairly closely with Jervis Johnson on Adeptus Titanicus and Space Marine, acting as editor/developer and writing color text as well as a few White Dwarf articles to support new releases in the Epic Scale range.

We Need More Maggot-Ridden Pus!


I was actually told that by Bryan Ansell, then head of Games Workshop. Well, I was working on Realm of Chaos at the time.

For this and more memories of Games Workshop in the late 80s, check out this interview at the RealmofChaos80s blog. And take a look around while you’re there: Orlygg has landed some fascinating interviews with the likes of Rick Priestley, Tony Ackland, and Bryan Ansell among others.

Oh, the memories. Anyway, if you’re at all interested in the period of Games Workshop’s history that produced WFRP, Warhammer 40K, Adeptus Titanicus, Dark Future, Space Hulk, and Advanced Heroquest, you will find this blog absolutely fascinating.
