Astra Militarum/Imperial Guard "Wiki"

Ave Omnissiah!

My blog is primarily my own personal fluff in the Warhammer 40,000 universe regarding the Draconis system such as the Knight House Yato in Draconis III, the Imperial Guard...I mean, Astra Militarum regiment trained there, the Draconian Armored Defenders, and the Forge World of Draconis IV with its Adeptus Mechanicus priesthood, Cybernetica cohorts and Skitarii legions, and the Titan Legion, Legio Draconis, known as the Dark Dragons.

Oh, and I'll throw in the Thousand Sons from time to time because they're my favorite Space Marine Legion. I refuse to believe that they are Traitors! They're just...ahem...secretly loyal to the Imperium!

Racism in Warhammer 40,000

Do you remember me writing a short story about two Imperial Knights fighting against Genestealers?

Well, I received this review.

0/10 there are no shoguns and Asians in warhammer 40k, bad writing too

Never mind that there is a Japanese warrior by the name of Nagasena Yasu in Graham McNeill's The Crimson King, or that the White Scars are based off Mongolians, the Tallarn Desert Raiders are based off West Asia/Middle East, or the Attilan Rough Riders are based off the Huns. No, absolutely no Asians exist in Warhammer 40,000 according to this Bob.

Also never mind that the Index for Imperium II notes that titles for regimental commanders are culture-based and you can have stuff from "Knight Magnificent" to "Chief Hetman" to "Marquis Battalio" for Imperial Guard regiments and there was even a Sheikh in Kingsblade by Andy Clark who was the general-commander for the combined Imperial Guard regiments. Never mind that the aforementioned Index for Imperium II says that Imperial Knight houses are ruled by a leader often called a High King, but sometimes known by other titles such as Ritter or Patriarch or Princeps. Because no Asians exist in Warhammer 40,000, therefore there are no High Kings referred to as Shoguns either, and so my story, and the fluff for my army and my blog is rated 0/10.

Sarcasm aside, the racism annoys me. I thought we were better than this, but it seems not. I wanted to write about this earlier, but I fell sick, otherwise I would have brought this up much earlier.

By the way, since Graham McNeill has made it canon with The Crimson King, I am going to relate the ancestors of House Yato, House Takeda and House Uesugi, as well as the citizens of Draconis III to the Dragon Nations. Thank you, McNeill Sensei.


  1. Write whatever you want, man. Screw these guys.

  2. Bizarre. The point about 40K to my mind is that there is no racism, because every human needs to fight together, because no matter what a fellow loyal human is much closer to you than one of the million other beings inimical to human existence

    1. I'm with you on that, but some other fans, as you can see, jump on my case when they see something they deem as "un"-Warhammer 40,000-ish.

  3. Man, screw those guys. What, the Imperium is just full of us white fellas? Jeez, what a prat.

    Write what you want and enjoy your game, Dude.
