The Corvus Cluster is a blog of an ongoing narrative campaign set in the Warhammer 40K universe. Our campaign is now 18 months old, and we already have created a sizable setting for our wargaming adventures.
As is inevitable in the Warhammer 40K unvierse, warfare is endemic in the Corvus Cluster. Several military campaigns are under way, as well as small skirmishes among various factions, such as the Inquisition, several Rogue Traders, and various villains.
The goal of all of this is to create a powerful background for our battles. It’s one thing to play a one-off tabletop battle. It’s another to fight a series of battles that determine the fate of a world with a richly developed history and colorful lead characters. Suddenly, you are transformed into this fictional setting, and you are invested in very victory and defeat that sways the fate of all.
Within the Corvus Cluster, you will find battle reports, biographies, histories, fiction, and a few “how-to” articles on painting and terrain. We hope you enjoy our creation as much as we do. If nothing else, though, we hope you recognize the potential of a narrative campaign to expand and improve your wargaming experience.
Thanks to Games Workshop for what must be the most extensive fictional setting ever created. The Warhammer 40K universe offers a wealth of inspiration for our tiny part of the galaxy, and we look forward to the gaming “fun” of the years ahead.
Thanks for visiting.
