Released January 2016

Cadia: A Codex Astra Militarum Supplement is an expansion book for the 7th Edition of Warhammer 40,000.

Cover Description

For thousands of years, the people of Cadia have known nought but war. Fighting always to hold back the infernal hosts of Chaos, all Cadians – no matter their age, gender or station – must know how to fight. By the age of five most Cadians can strip and reassemble a lasgun. By six, most are deadly shots, and before their seventh birthdays they have received a no-nonsense introduction to the horrors of Psyker-taint and mutation. The Cadian Shock Troops are believed by many to be without equal in the entirety of the Imperial Guard. Displaying enviable levels of discipline, excellent marksmanship, and a cynical gallows humour, Cadian soldiers hold true to the tenet that to do your best and give your life for the Emperor is the highest form of honour.
