I will discuss the ASTRO 3D theoretical programme, which aims to follow galaxy formation and evolution across key epochs in cosmic time, from the EoR to the present-day, producing synthetic skies for ongoing and upcoming surveys. I will present current and near future simulations, how they compare to state-of-the-art work done else where, I will also discuss how we will tackle the variety of large scientific questions in ASTRO 3D’s other programmes. I will end with a taster of several specific scientific questions we seek to answer in the near term.
