Thread for Warhammer 40k stuff
What's the direction GW is going with the lore? I fear they might be trying to faze out Slaanesh, and they'll start by bringing Fulgrim back (the real Fulgrim). Besides selling more models, does GW have any reason to advance the story or even end the story like they did with Fantasy's End Times? Surprisingly, they buffed non-primaris marines a bit. I am curious if there's any lore explanation or if it's simply a tabletop balancing decision. A precedent will be set either way.

Personally, I think they should have come up with a proper ending first, and created a skeleton timeline leading up to it that gets filled in over time by historian characters with hindsight/biases. The way Fantasy died indicated that nobody really had a plan for the setting, but GW seems to understand they can't pull AoS for 40k, at least.

I see what you're saying, but that might put people off of collecting a certain army if they're just destined to lose. I don't know. I guess Horus Heresy is kind of a contained environment where what you describe is going on.
So I'm a bit out of the loop - last thing I heard was that the Necrons are the current big bad postergirls under the Silent King, but did the Orkz actually get any love, beyond Ghazkull clowning around in the Octarian Wars?

I want a "40K was actually The Emperor's plan all along" ending for 30K. I want a Ragnarok ending for 40K.

>I want a glorified 'Age of Simar' for 40k
Are you quite sure of that?
In the Horus Heresy books, it's 'canon' that the Emperor actually needed outside help to find out how the Heresy would end, and he only found out at around the same time Istvaan V occurred. I think that's proof enough he can't foresee that far.

40K was something I'd always wanted to get into, yet never had the time for until recently. 
But, not long ago I think I heard some stuff about the makers calling out their own audience and prioritizing inclusivity and stuff.
Is it still worth getting into if your not already hooked, or should I just count this as a bullet dodged?

Just dont buy any official products. If you must, get them second-hand or recasts. They’re cheaper (in this case, more fairly priced) and relatively easy to find. Lore-wise, dont read anything newer than 2015

Pretty much this. Especially with how you can get them for cheaper. The minis have always been ridiculously expensive.

Thanks for the advice.

Arstartes Marines figure it out.

You got my hopes up man, I thought that was going to be part 6.

BL authors should have pictures of their story relevant model conversions in the back of the book
