Diamantine is a metallic material used by the Imperium of Man to fabricate weapons, ammunition and armour. "Diamantine" means consisting of diamonds, or resembling diamonds.
- Diamantine is used in bolter ammunition. The standard bolt, rounds for assault cannons and other projectiles1 have diamantine tips. This material replaces the lead used in today's bullets.
- Armour is sometimes constructed of diamantine, or walls and doors are sometimes lined or made with it, notably in the walls of a Fortress-Monastery2.
