    True, just think of all those people that enjoy going to nightclubs or music festivals for example, Perfect Slaanesh cultists. Same goes for Boxing or martials arts fans, for Khorne. Tzeentch would be the conspiracy theorists, theres plenty of those on the internet.

    Fuck knows who would follow Nurgle though, not sure I want to know........

    It's not bad actually, I had a decent time reading it anyway, but be warned, Warhammer 50k is far and away worse than Warhammer 40k.

    Nurgle worshippers would be, I imagine, the heartbroken, the lonely, the depressed, they seem to be the type to embrace Nurgles "love" no matter how damaging it would be.

    Pretty much, and those affected by the horrendous debilitating plagues he spreads about as well, they seem to be the ones who convert the most, in there pain and madness they reach out for the only thing that can save them, and in doing so damn themselves.

    I've got a nice Decent sized Iron warriors army. Been on a long hiatus. I've seen the new chaos models, seem alright not had chance to get the codex or rulebook yet, but i will in time. I'd like to start another army some time, but having a hard time between space wolves, dark angels or grey knights. Space wolves for their fluff. dark anges for their fluff. Grey knights because -]I[- (inquisition).

    Iron within, Iron without.

    So I read the 50K and 60K stuff. It's ok, not the ending I would have like but makes sense for the most part. I feel that it's pretty close to what GW would do if they continued the story.

    That's exactly it. The four gods of Chaos aren't intrinsically evil, they just represent the human (and Eldar, Ork and other sentient species connected to the warp's) psyche superbly. Violence, pleasure, sickness and a desire for knowledge are cornerstones of human behaviour. The Imperium really does try to control all those drives to stop Chaos, but it leads people easily down dodgy paths.

    If the Imperium was "educated" enough, it'd face another in a long line of civil wars and break it up, causing the eventual extinction of humanity (if it isn't already heading that way.)

    It's why I like the Tau story - not connected to the warp, they can truly develop without those baser urges.
    In fact as far as I'm aware the UK is the only european nation that outright bans guns for civilians.
    Shotguns I'll give you (provided you're allowed 12 and larger gauges... because I mean... come on...) but not .22s.
    This is why people ban guns. Gun supporters don't know what guns are.
