Sorry if this has been asked before but i searched it and couldn't find it.Because I'm an idiot and can't quite keep up with things,just exactly what IS the current year in the 40k universe supposed to be? I'm not even sure i understand the little explination of the date system that's in the BBB..
Well its kinda wierd considering that the last year of the the 41st millenium occured during the major fighting during the Hivefleet Kraken incursion. But current events would indicate it is the dawn of the 42nd millenium by now

Some would indeed say yes - 42nd millenium. But I find that there really is no set date in the 40K universe (for us players anyway). I mean, it was 999M41 at the beginning of the 3rd War for Armageddon and its been over for a while but remember that the First war for Armageddon came out much later than the Second War - go figure :blink:
There's also a Solar Macharius model in stock - and jee is he long dead! The fact of the matter is, Warhammer 40K is set in the 41st millenium and that is a pretty wide time span! I usually keep most of my campaigns in the later five hundered years or so - to match my models - but they're bringing out all the pre heresy stuff now, so who knows?

The only reason I'm asking is b/c I'm writin' the fluff for meh SM guys and they're suppsed to only be a little over 100 years old,...so i guess it really doesn't matter what date i put then as long as it's in the same general span?
Another question while I'm asking,for my fluff, isn't it the machine cult on Mars that takes care of the gene seed stock? and roughly how many samples of gene seed are usualy kept in this stock? thanks
I read somwhere in an artical about the Eye of Terror, I don't remember where though, that the war had ended in 999M41. How can the Eye of Terror campaign end in the same year as the 3rd War for Armageddon begins?
