HAMMERS OF THE EMPEROR
Comprised of countless billions of men and women, the soldiers and pilots of the Imperium form humanity’s unified defence against a myriad of threats. Hammering back alien and chaotic forces, these humans are separated into three distinct branches: the Astra Militarum’s ground forces, the Navis Imperialis’ fleets of starships, and the Aeronautica Imperialis’ atmospheric aviators.
It is worth noting that across humanity’s galaxy-spanning empire, these branches display unique cultures and histories but all share one constant… they fight punishing battles of attrition where incalculable lives will be lost. As artillery bombardments reduce all to rubble, and aircraft weave and fire in the skies above, what goes through the mind of a single soldier fighting in the worst time imaginable?
