Once again, the sun rises over Beautiful Terra!

Straight from the bowels of 4chan...

...excuse me, 1d4chan. The TG board. Y'know, the one that's actually constructive and, well, good.

Anyway, BrightHammer 40K is exactly what it looks like: a NobleBright version of Warhammer 40K.

Find it here:,000/2nd_edition

Tropes of the setting:

  • Adaptational Heroism: Most of the elements that made all of the factions of 40K evil one way or another (even humans' Up to Eleven version of the Spanish Inquisition) has been removed.
  • Adaptational Villainy: The Tau and their obsession with a Space Communist "Greater Good" mentality not only doesn't changes much from how it was in canon (the universe being Lighter and Softer now makes them a more crapsack option in comparison instead of a lesser one) but Depending on the Writer they have gone all the way to Flash Gordon-style mustache-twirling evil.
  • Advertisement:
  • Lighter and Softer: Than the canon 40K universe, even being on the name.
  • Mirror Universe: To the canon 40K universe, with an emphasis in high adventure and less War is Hell.
  • Scary Dogmatic Aliens: Inverted with most of the other aliens in the setting, but the Tau remain Space Commies and without a World of Jerkass to provide contrast they are now definitely the villains of the setting.
  • Space Opera: The Lighter and Softer approach to the source material means a higher emphasis in this side of the setting.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: The God-Emperor of Mankind is still around, and so do many other canonically dead characters.

How well does it match the trope?
