A set of stamps is being issued to mark the 40th anniversary of the popular tabletop game Warhammer.

Six stamps in the main set depict characters from the worlds of Warhammer – space marines and orks from Warhammer 40,000, Stormcast Eternals and Slaves to Darkness from Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and high elves and dwarfs from Warhammer: The Old World.

A separate miniature sheet of stamps features illustrations from the last 40 years of Warhammer – Crimson Fists space marines from the first edition of Warhammer 40,000, the Emperor of Mankind from Warhammer: The Horus Heresy, Yndrasta from the current edition of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and the Battle for Skull Pass from Warhammer: The Old World.
