Default Games of 40k

I know some of the card games in 40k from the Ciaphas Cain books. but I was wondering what other games besides regicide and assorted poker like games. In particular pool because I would like my IG regiment to be very good at it so If anyone has any ideas or knowledge on the topic please reply.

they play a wargame, using 28mm figures set in the dim distant past of terra's history. this game is known as warhammer 2k, and includes rules for fighting skirmish scale battle, mainly using tanks and infantry. the boxed set includes such ancient heroes like "Rambo", and "Duke Nukem". Its also amusing to note its a D6 system, currently in its 4th edition. Playable armies include the people's republic of china, the middle eastern insurgents, the forces of the United Nations, and the United States Marines. Plans are in place for a new race, called the pan-european coalition.
Each army has its own strengths and weaknesses. For example, the US marines include highly trained and very well equipped infantry and armour, but numbers are limited, while the Chinese Defense forces rely less on individual skill, and more on the "human wave" approach. Of course, all these armies are entirely fictional.


there are "specialist games" to represent massivebattles (Epic 2k) ship based combat (Battlefleet Atlantic), highly detailed rules for individual warbands in "Mafia" and other warband based games such as "bordeheim" and Metro-munda.

"What warriors of men can stand beside the Space Wolves! The Sons of Fenris they are, hardened in the forge of their harsh world, eager for battle and honour. They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war. None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."

Many are calling for a new Codex: United States Marines though, as the current edition (based on 3rd edition rules) is generally considered overpowered. The general consensus is that such special rules as 'Peace by superior firepower' and 'Airmobile armada' are too good to be offset by their universal drawback 'Friendly fire...isn't'.

Read anything that has to do with the Early Tanith games. Gambling is BIG.

I hear they're excited about Codex: Apocolypse, the latest supplement to the game. Every army from a third-world country gets access to nuclear weapons!

Also everyone in codex Tiaa Creff has been accused of being communist.

If you did not get that it is because their slogan is for the greater good.
