Has it even been explained what exactly a Geller field does (other than turning someone into Ross or Monica). Is it psychic energy, null energy (similar to a Culexus or Pariah have) or something else?

Through technological means, it somehow projects a bubble of reality around an object within a realm of unreality (the warp).

Thanks, am I right in thinking that somewhere it says that the Emperor obtained the technology in his bargain with the Chaos gods?

No it existed during the Dark Age of Technology.

The Geller Field is a nice, vague, way for the Imperium to explain how exactly it can travel the Warp.

Oddly enough for all the technology lost in the 41st Millennium, of all the technology considered archaic and half-understood. The Geller Fields really seem to be one of the things the Imperium hasn't forgotten too much about. I'm sure some things are ritualized but Humanity certainly has clung to that piece with some single-mindedness.

Thanks guys, I wasn't sure. I wish they'd explain it better as I think even technology would have to generate some sort of field capable of repelling daemons. If that is so how come no-one has ever thought to equip the Grey Knights and Inquisition with miniature versions (built by the Jokaero maybe) which can repel daemons in realspace?

They've retained the technology to make Astartes, bolters, Thunderhawks, etc.

The absolutely crucial things are harder to forget especially if the technology is spread around multiple worlds should one fall to mankind's various enemies.

@zerachiel: it doesent repel Daemons like how pariahs would. It just is a wall that the strongest Daemons can bypass with ease.

Oh right, how come that all ships in the warp aren't destroyed? As daemons are at their strongest in the warp surely they should be able to go through every geller field with ease? (Not trying to pick an argument, I'm genuinely interested).

I couldn't find the quote that stated the strongest Daemons could bypass geller fields but I'm sure I've read it somewhere. Wait till CoTe shows up I suppose.

Thanks Malus and no worries. It's just bugging me now that for any ships to survive then the geller fields must be very strong. Maybe they can't be miniaturized
