This mod is set in Games Workshop's, great Warhammer 40,000 ( 40k ) universe. Each map pits Imperial Space Marines against the Tyranid swarm, competing in a series of mission objectives, culminating in a battle to decide the fate of the planet.
Latest scheduled play times and list of servers:
Many brothers lost their lives as wave after wave of monstrous Tyranid creatures spewed out the infested structure, but we fought valiantly to defend our very last position here.
21st of January 2012, on a packed out server we had an extended Mexican standoff around this door on Ichar IV. The marines wanted in to capture the landeraider objective inside. The tyranids wanted out to scoff the emperors Ores outside. The hammering DAKKA DAKKA of our heavy bolters was not enough in the end, some sneaky Stealer or Lictor must have got around our lines and smashed the orees while we fought for our very lives.
Ichar IV has had a few minor tweaks since beta 5.5, the red sky and tyranic atmosphere being the most noticeable, filling the exteriors with an ominous feeling of impending doom.
