    I remember reading the end to the storm of chaos campaign they wrote in White Dwarf when I was a lad. Even when I was young I thought it was the most fucking retarded thing I've ever read. Highlights included Grimgor Ironhide and his unbeatable horde of orcs showing up to the final climactic battle solely to headbutt Archaon in the dick, scream "I IZ DA BEST", then go home. Heard that entire campaign was so humiliating for GW they strictly regulated the entire event to semi-canon.

    Everything about Storm of Chaos, except Grimgor headbutting Archaeon in the dick, was retarded.

    I guess this confirms that Geedubs is still very, very unhappy about losing the space marine copyright lawsuit.

    There's some problems, but they've actually written in ways of getting around lots of this stuff and anyway..some of em can cancel each other out.

    The Tyranids are headed to Terra, effectively summoned by teh Emperor whose psychic awesomeness leads teh way. Unless he's braindead..which kinda doesn't work..you can invent all sorts of reasons y he's doing that.
    Plenty of those chars who sided with Chaos have said "what shit u chat bout the heresy just aint so brah!"

    How to deal with Chaos & teh farked warp tho eh? Well, a bioplague is one option. Warpscrewiness is dependent upon the psychic wake of the 'real.' Orcs were around forever without causing the warp to decay like it has, so there must be something about them that's 'warp-safe technology ISA-39®' Then u haz Tau & Nulls, more paths to explore with living sentient being that haz limited [or negating] impact on teh warp manifestations. So GodEmperor Michelangelo develops a bioplague that edits the relevant genes of all hoomongs everywhere. I reckonz that offers a gd true reason for the Heresy.

    As for retconning tech.. there's some instances of stupidness, well, more than some given how like..Galaxy-wide empire ..well anyway..but point is, the empire doesn't understand it's own technology, like..the idea that SCIENCE! might cause something is essentially lost to history. Basically everything around is a fudge of tech developed or leftover from DAoT. There were atleast two AI wars in humanities past which means actually sentient tech is rarer than fookin ancient gods of destruction...for instance.

    Mars is the source of all Decline.

    My body is ready.


    And mind too actually, I'm morbidly curious as to what deranged shit GW would pull out of their ass if they were to try something like that.

    Abaddon invades cadia, pylons get activated and then overload destroying the planet, but not before 'don escapes.

    That's roughly it anyway.

    Dnn't forget that the pylons activate because a zanny kleptomaniac necron wants to play universe saviour before changing his mind. Yeah, I'm not joking, and it's not even a C'tan of infinite powers and inscrutable motives, just a random necron lord.

    Age of Mars would actually be p. cool, the whole AdMech sez fuck the emprah and does an uprising and take over the Imperium and since they control all the tech people can only stare and fume, and everything goes really weird and augmented and fucked up and people start having sex with toasters and shit
