The Best Online Resources for Warhammer 40k

super happy guardsman wal horWe’ll say this one more time before getting into the list, if you have some other favorites we forgot about, let us know because we always love to find new places to hobby better! Let’s give some criteria on what we think makes something good.

  • Value! Not everything is free and it shouldn’t always be, but if you do have to pay, we look at the value you actually receive. 
  • Good Information. Obviously, if you classify as a great resource, you have to have good info. 
  • Consistency is key. To be a great resource you need updated content. 

With that said let’s jump into the list.
