Warhammer 40K: 10 Worst Things The Imperium Has Ever Done

The Codex Astartes Definitely Approved These Horrific Actions For The God-Emperor.

Games Workshop

The Milky Way has become one of the bloodiest battlefields in human history, split in half by a tear in the space-time continuum pouring out endless hordes of monsters battling for dominance amongst several other massive armies of terrifying Xenos.

And in the center of this galaxy-spanning cycle of warfare stands the grand Imperium of Man, a once-mighty galactic empire now slowly crumbling from pressures within and without preparing for the end times and humanity's eventual extension.

While this may seem like a prediction for 2021, in fact, this is just the fantastic gothic world of Warhammer 40K. In which humanity has dominated the Milky Way for tens of thousands of years and has also become trapped in a series of ever-growing conflicts that have claimed the lives of billions of people.

And while we of course don't want humanity to fade away from the galaxy, the methods the Imperium of Man has used to keep its empire intact have been rather horrific in some cases.

From wiping out entire planets to suppressing trillions of people, to the very complicated nature of the so-called God-Emperor, it's quite appalling just how the Imperium of Man has survived for so long.
