Why there's no interest in good fluff concerning Slaanesh? Concepts around which his whole existence evolves should be grimderp to the max, like on the related pick. Why is he chaos god with no...love?

>> No.14594838

What a wicked picture.

Slaanesh is the coolest, just not the most prevalent. Sex is a natural part of human life, where as plague, scheming and unbridled murder aren'y. Slaanesh is just harder to work into games. Also, se and battlefeild don't go so well together. Sure, you can defend 'pleasure through pain' all you want, but the bottom line is that the Dark Prince doesn't do so well in outright warfare.

>> No.14594840

Because love and lust are two completely separate concepts.

>> No.14594922

Slaanesh is not limited to only sex

just like khorne is not limited to only skulls

and nurgle not limited to only plague

the chaos gods are not so one dimensional as you can classify them with things that aren't even emotions (protip; the "chaos gods" are gigantic conglomerates of warp-energy created from the emotions of races in the materium. If you're going to define them with a single word, emotions are a good place to start)

>> No.14594936

...That chainsaw...

>> No.14595043


I can perfectly see the plot in which whole population of planet is striving to eradicate Nurgle/Khorne cults and is working on 300% to do it. After some time people percive imperial government to stop the progress (no AI? How we will work faster? How we will make our lives better?) and shit hits the fan...

>> No.14595090

Actually, Nurgle IS limited to plague, and disease in general. Sure, he has flies and rats, but all of his attacks and cults work on the basis of sickness. Khorne is limited to outright killing. A Khorne cultists, according to the majority of fluff, would not set up a grand plot to murder someone from 600 miles away in their sleep. He'd hack them apart and take their skull.

Slaanesh is the god of emotional excess. Pain, pleasure, pride, perfection. Like I said, you can argue it all you want, but those concepts still translate a battlefield very well. Look at the noise marines. Fist time I saw them, I couldn't believe that they fought with SOUND. You can tell GW had to stretch for that one.

>> No.14595120

Because GW is more interested in producing a war game than generating a truly interesting fictional setting. To that end, they're more likely to focus on the aspects of Chaos more suited to combat; Khorne and Nurgle.

Decadence and madness just don't suit the battlefield as well as slaughter and plague.

>> No.14595121

Slaanesh is the god of excess, so anything in excess, to include military/political control(one of the temptations in his fortress as I recall), sex(obviously, also how most of his cults begin in the higher classes of planets; also includes sato-macicism), and even sloth are all his domains.

Khorne is pretty much all blood and skulls as far as I can tell though. There's just not much going on upstairs for him.

>> No.14595325


Khorne is the god of righteous warfare and bloodshed of any stripe.

Slaanesh is the god of excess, generally meaning the mental feelings associated with addiction, be it power, sex, drugs, etc.

When you kill someone, Khorne lights a cigar. When you enjoy the feeling of killing someone, Slaanesh smokes a whole pack in one draw.

>> No.14595359

Actually, I'd put it that "Slaanesh is not limited to only sex, as Khorne is not limited to only space marines, and as Tzeentch is not limited to the color blue." Slaanesh isn't the god of sex, otherwise he'd have been produced before the other gods and be the most powerful of the gods, not the only xeno chaos god and not the weakest chaos god (of the big four, anyway).

Normal sex has about as much to do with Tzeentch as it does with Slaanesh.

It was a very well-written book that got you emotionally invested. It started for me when Fulgrim found the sword and I stated yelling at m book. When the ending came around, I almost threw the book across the room. I can't really imagine any book that makes yo feel for Angron. I can imagine the manly tears at the part where he's pulling a last stand with his gladiator buddies and then gets sucked into space, but the rest of the book would be "Man, this guy is a douche machine. Kharn is a bro."

Fulgrim and Thousand Sons really make you feel for those Primarchs. Legion kind of left me going "What?" becuase the revelations are not revealed to you.

I think it's the third book where Horus gets turned? I was so fucking mad at him for falling for some shit, but obviously I could only see what he was really being shown because I had an idea of how Chaos operates. He was being shown the future all right.

on an unrelated note, I'm thinking about kitbashing some slaaneshi chariots for my daemons army, should I go with the tomb king chariot for the more slim and quick look (it's a tad cheaper too) or go with the high elf chariot for the elegant and excessive yet refined look?

it's what you play if you have a regular sized army, I built the list for tourneys and have never walked away from one with less than third place. but then again I also haven't played since Blood angels came out (being an American in Germany is frustrating sometimes.)

but back to your comment, most people I know play between 2000-3000 pts for 40k thus I build accordingly.

yes, 1. it ensures they will make it to the target
2. it can be use to great effect to "block" an enemy and make them go around
3. it ensures you usually know where your opponent is going to focus his force at...allowing you to draw troops away with lashes, shoot at them with the noise marine squads and then assault them with the swarm of raptors.

nope. Think about if for a second, is "plague" a feeling we have? How about "disease"? Is that human emotion?

Think about what plague and disease bring -emotionally- to human beings, and you're closer to your answer. The gods feed on emotions.

>Khorne is limited to outright killing.
Again, killing isn't an emotion, it's an action. ALL chaos gods deal with killing. Think about the emotions surround and leading to that action, and you're closer to your answer.

Ok, I'll spell it out for you piece by piece.

Slaanesh is the Prince/Chaos God of Excess. Not pleasure, not sex. Excess. There's a huge difference between being excessive and being sexual. You could do anything excessively---not just things that involve pleasure.

So instead of sex, try gluttony. It fits much better.

And gluttony just as natural in humans as plotting, sloth, despair and wrath. (and before you embarrass yourself further by asking why that's important, I'll preemptively answer that as well. Gluttony = Slaanesh, Plotting = Tzeentch, Sloth/Despair = Nurgle, and Wrath = Khorne. All are have their place in human life, but typically in the same small amounts.

Proteus Syndrome... Her body is constantly growing new stuff... None of it is actually cancerous, though it does cause her some inconveniences sometimes.

Of course, it's nowhere near as extreme as depicted in art, but she does occasionally develop what look like burn wounds or scar tissue sometimes. As well as occasional bony growths that naturally fall out on their own.

Essentially, constant mutation on a fast scale, biologically. For instance, over the course of a month, a spur might start growing, get about an inch long and sharp enough to make a wound, then atrophy and fall off.

Sometimes inconvenient, but so very worth it.
