The Space Marines are the most powerful and dreaded of all Imperial forces. They are not human at all but superhuman, having being made superior, in all respects, to a normal man by a harsh regime of genetic modification, psycho-conditioning and rigorous training. Their unswerving loyalty is to the Emperor of Mankind and no other.
The Imperial Guard is the largest and most diverse military organisation that the galaxy has ever seen. Numbering in the billions and equipped with armoured vehicles, artillery and all the other adjuncts of mechanised warfare, the Imperial Guard forms both the hammer and the anvil of the Imperium's might.
All Imperial air forces come under the direct command of the Imperial Navy and not the Imperial Guard. These aircraft are able to provide ground troops with invaluable aerial support. Imperial Guard commanders are able to contact Lightning Strike Fighters to sweep in and break up enemy armoured formations, or request Marauder Bombers to eliminate enemy fortifications.
The Eldar are an incredibly ancient race, who once ruled a vast empire across the stars. Then came the hideous times of The Fall, when the Eldar were all but consumed by their own decadence and fell from power. Though few in number, the Eldar are one of the most technologically advanced races in the galaxy.
The Tau believe that now is their time; their race, their empire will bring unity to all. There is no foe their technology cannot overcome, no quandary their science cannot resolve. The very stars themselves will be reforged in the cause of the Greater Good.
Orks are the most widespread and warlike race of aliens in the bloodstained galaxy of the 41st millennium. Orks occupy more of the galaxy than any other single race and were they unified they would soon crush all opposition. However, their passion for violence is so unquenchable that they expend far more time warring amongst themselves.
