Last year my stepbrother, at eleven years of age and with zero familiarity with the setting, described a 40k Imperial ship as "a mix of Mad Max and Star Wars."
 
That's the best description of 40k I've ever heard or seen.
 
Do you have concise descriptions of 40k to outsiders to share? Perhaps coined by you or invented by people who doesn't know 40k? Or maybe some fun anecdote? Please share! smile.png

A sci-fi universe that took normal fantasy races and mixed them with meth and nihilistic poetry.

Yup, I usually go with the similar "It's Star Wars on crack".

It's a mix of Dune and Starship Troopers with added LotR races ;)

Doom Slayers favourite holiday resort. Nothing but Ripping and Tearing til it is done...and it is never done.


I Chapter Master 454, Chapter Master of the Angels of Justice, Warboss of WAAAGH Gubskul, Commander of a Catachan Regiment, Phaeron of a Tomb World, Shas'O to a Cadre and Princeps of a lance of House Taranis hereby pledge that I will not take up any further models til all other prior have been fully built and painted to tabletop standards. There is no time limit for this task, there is no deadline. My oath is to solemnly complete the armies I have now, to see it that they can have their glory. Paint will be stripped from the old in need, thick may it be like ceramite I will see it removed so that plastic and metal alike may see light of new paint. Models yet to be, boxed and in darkness will be assembled with due care and attention. For this task I am permitted to still buy the supplies needed to do my task but not one model more.

http://www.bolterand...one-model-more/ the thread to my oath. My own reminder.

Gothic science fiction.  But, that's only if the Imperium is well represented.  Someone seeing Craftworlds vs Tau may get entirely the wrong impression about our little galaxy.
