Ahhhh neat. This'll be pretty useful for a few ideas I've got. Not to use the image, just as a reference for certain locations. Tohugh if I might use it, I'll ofcourse be sure to ask.

Well done though man, can't be easy to do!

I personally love Warhammer 40K, not much for the tabletops stuff since I don't have 50 dollars to kill, but I'm a big lover of the games... well namely just the DoW ones since I love strategy.

Totally love this! :D

Oh that's when the Emperor got angry and decided to destroy a fleet with his mind, while on his death bed.

I remember finding this someplace ahwile ago, only one was able to mouse over each location and information about it (historic events, tactical info, etc) would appear. Do you know what happened to that version?

Now this is a great map! Though, on an interesting side note, I saw another version on 1d4chan, which had a number of planets that were...not supposed to exist, let's put it that way :D But again, great job!

How close are you to being done with mapping this out?

I SO want to make a poster out of it!

Dude, this is friggin awsum.
One thing though, would you mind trying to place a few Necron Tomb Worlds in there? Makes me a little sad the race i play is totally unrepresented, though i can understand why; they arent exactly very placed. I am however rather sure that the "thing" that made an anomaly in Hivefleet Leviathans movement is a Necron Tomb World. I dont have my codex with the at the moment, but at the last page there are listed some "Dead worlds featuring Necrontyr structures" (which basically is Necron tomb worlds). I would love to see some of them placed too...

Awesome, but... how can be north direction shown on galaxy map? On 2d map it makes sense, but galaxy is 3-dimensional. Or is it just taken from fluff? Apart ftom this... jaw-dropping work. I'm suprised that GW hasn't yet released an official map like this.

GW has some maps, also a galactic Map (can be found in the basic rules book). The heading is taken from said map.

Several Discussions in 40K Fluff Boards, official map fragments, text from codexes and novels, etc. etc. pp.

How, exactly are there cardinal directions in space?

The cardinal directions stem directly from 40k...there´s also a compass on the original maps and the tau are always referred to as "living in the galactic east".
