The Emperor's Will: Digital Edition

A digital Warhammer 40,000 art book

Inquisitors, Assassins, Astropaths, Navigators – these and many other agents of the Imperium are celebrated in this glorious full-colour art book.

Packed with previously unseen illustrations from John Blanche and David Gallagher as well as a host of classic images, The Emperor's Will provides an unparalleled glimpse into the inner workings of the Imperium of Man.


"Okay, so I'm not opting for one of Black Library's many fantastic novels, I'm submitting one of their art books, 'The Emperor's Will', to the Hall of Fame. As an artist, it seems only right.

Back in the day I would pore over my collection of rulebooks and novels, marvelling at (and recoiling from) the countless illustrations – and this book collects many of those images in one handy tome. There are some stone-cold classics in there from John Blanche, Jes Goodwin, Adrian Smith, and many more.

John's book fleshes out (or should that be 'flays') the world of Warhammer 40,000 in so many subtle and unique ways; his compilation of characters, environments and imagery takes you right into the dark heart of the future.

This book is literally a case of 'all killers, no fillers'.

If you want to immerse and lose yourself in the setting of Warhammer 40,000, then 'The Emperor's Will' is a great place to go. It's also a veritable wellspring of ideas if you need inspiration for painting and converting your miniatures, doodling or playing a game of Warhammer 40,000 itself. Awesome!"

– Neil Roberts

While the Space Marines and Astra Militarum wage war in the Emperor's name, it falls to the many and varied agents of the Imperium to keep the realm of mankind running, and to delve behind the darkness of war and root out the enemies who hide in the shadows and prey on the good people of the Imperium. This art book focuses on these devoted Imperial servants – inquisitors, Assassins, astropaths, Navigators and many more – with classic and never-before-seen illustrations chosen by Games Workshop's art director John Blanche. It's an unparalleled look at the people without whom mankind's Imperium wouldn't exist.
