Imperial Armour is a series of works produced by Forge World that detail different miniatures produced by their company, write stories based on these works, and give rules on the works.


There are two original softbound Imperial Armour books. They were produced by Fanatic for the Forgeworld staff in connection with the specialized miniature lines they produced based on pieces originally created in Epic scale.
