Index Astartes

From Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Index Astartes is a column in the White Dwarf magazine, a series of books collecting those columns, and a fictive document in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The article series focuses on the Space Marines, describing their background, genetics, individual Legions and Chapters, vehicles, etc. While most of the articles have been collected in the four books, some can be found only in White Dwarf.

Index Astartes I

Cover of Index Astartes
Index Astartes is the first of four collected volumes. The book starts, logically, with the articles that help one to understand what makes a Space Marine and what their life is like, as well as including articles on the first four (1st to 5th, to be precise, with the 2th Legion being lost) Space Marine Legions and other articles.
