Regiments, Chapters & Kabals – oh my! Perhaps one of the best things about this hobby is seeing how individuals manage to add their own personal touch to their armies. One of the mechanisms that allow us to do this is the sub-factions available to each of the main factions. Space Marines have thousands of chapters to choose from, Imperial Guard can be as different as the worlds they hail from and the Ork clans have different Kultures that mandate how they paint their armor (as much as they do paint it) and how they fight (which really is just various forms of delivering a krumpin).
Below is a crossword that contains the different sub-faction choices that are available in several Warhammer 40,000 codexes.
