In the grim darkness of the far future, there are only costumes!
In this thread we chat about WH40K costumes; trade tips on construction; post progress and receive encouragement; show off completed costumes; and even schedule gatherings at various cons. I will keep this head post updated with useful links and information.
Warhammer 40,000 (also WH40000, WH40K, or just 40K) is a sci-fi universe where the galaxy is constantly torn by war between many powerful factions. Robot zombies, demons, genetically-engineered super-soldiers, space elves, hive-minded insects, giant robots, and orks clash with a variety of chunky and intimidating weapons. The various units are highly customizable, with different color schemes and weapons, so options for costumes are almost limitless.

Millions of average Joes pressed into combat by cruel officers, like in World War One.
