10 Terrifying Warhammer 40K Creatures

Some things should be left well alone...

Games Workshop

From creatures living in underground hives, to those that roam the earth forever in search of blood, Warhammer 40K has always been fantastic at creating terrifying creatures.

Warhammer 40K is the most popular miniature war game in the world, allowing players to truly feel in charge of their army of fighters. You are able to pick races, weapons, size of creatures, and even how they are colored and put together, giving you a full feeling of individuality and control over what you choose to play. In addition to this, the battlefield that you play on is completely customizable as well, allowing the player to choose the landscapes and 3D structures that will become the battlefield.

The lore that is present within this world also gives the player some background on why every race acts the way that it does within the game. It also creates a horrifying landscape of bloodsucking monsters, gods that seek to spread disease and decay, and even sentient leaves that attack your nervous system. Despite being full of these scary creatures, there are a few of them that stand out above the rest as blood chilling fiends.
