Tyranids ultimately, I think.

The Hive Mind operates at an intergalactic scale, which is something no other faction has any concrete grasp on. There is no honest telling what the true extent of the Tyranids is because of that - one galaxies worth of biomass, dozens, etc.

Chaos would come in at first or second if I could figure out the extent of the Warp. The existence of the massive power of the Hive Mind and how the Chaos Gods apparently didn't know the fucker existed makes me think they only influence a small (galaxy sized?) section of the Warp. Fuck knows how big the true power of the Hive Mind is.

Couple of points to be made.
1) The C'tan defeated the old ones, a species so powerful as to create both the Eldar and the Orks.
2) The Nightbringer is not death incarnate, but rather the death the first. He is the monster that created the fear of one's own mortality. If he returns to full power, the universe is fucked.
3) The Silver Wyrm on Mars can and will take control of Mars, and use the power it has gained to wreck the Mechanicus and destroy Terra using the shit ton of weapons platform on and orbiting around mars
4) The Deceiver can and will turn the factions of chaos against each other. He did to the C'tan, he can do it to the Chaos gods.
5) A force with unimaginable number of recyclable warriors rises out of the very ground where they are least expected, dealing death and destruction
6) Tyranids cannot, and in cannon have fled and avoided, fighting Necrons
While the Necron Codex is shit, its fluff points it out as the strongest.

Chapter 1: Squad Broken

As soon as he heard one of his comrades scream "SQUAD BROKEN!", Eduardo the Space Marine knew that he was doomed. He charged forth in a panic, firing his plasma gun wildly into the air. Somehow the orks had surrounded them! Eduardo's teammates ran shrieking into the depths of the abandoned tanker, the grunting lustful orks in swift pursuit. Soon Eduardo was alone.

The brawny Space Marine collapsed against a wall, panting raggedly. His plasma gun had nearly overheated, and his com units were malfunctioning. No use even if they worked. By now, his whole squad was surely dead.

Lost in his thoughts, Eduardo did not hear the ork creeping up on him. Stunned by a blow to the head, Eduardo was thrown violently to the floor. The ork grunted in amusement, bending down and straddling his body. Dazed, Eduardo turned his head to look up at his enemy. The ork fellow was huge, well muscled and even attractive for his species. Right now the ork's vibrant green skin was flushing dark in arousal. Eduardo whimpered as he realized what was about to happen.

Summoning up his powers as a Blood Angel, Eduardo bellowed in the Black Rage and began to flail about under the ork. The ork simply grunting, riding the panicked Space Marine like a rodeo bull. Already weakened, Eduardo simply did not have the strength to dislodge the much heavier ork.

All that thrashing around served to arouse the ork further. His name was Gurk, and the friction as the puny Marine flopped around between his muscular thighs was giving him quite a respectable hard-on. Gurk had meant to save the Marine for his own squad, but he couldn't wait any longer. Whipping out his own plasma gun, Gurk seared off the back of the Marine's armor, leaving his shining buttocks bare to the ork's lustful gaze.

Eduardo moaned in fear, his virgin asscheeks clapping firmly together to deny the ork entrance. Gurk simply laughed, ripping off his crude orkish loincloth to reveal a thick green meat pole, nearly 12 inches long. The ork stuck one calloused finger down his throat, bringing up a thick vomit slurry which spattered down into the crack of Eduardo's ass. Smearing the foul vomit around with one brutish paw, Gurk prepared the Space Marine's tender anus for playtime.

Much to Gurk's frustration, his cock was simply too large to fit inside Eduardo's tight man cunt. He grunted furiously, screaming "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!" in his deep orkish voice as he battered his fuckmeat against Eduardo's tightly sealed pleasure ring. Suddenly the Space Marine's portal gave way, and the swollen head of Gurk's cock popped through into the forbidden halls of his anus. Gurk's pleased snort was drowned out by Eduardo's scream of agony.

The ork began to pump away in earnest, his bulging muscular hips and thighs slamming brutally against Eduardo's ass. His heavy, furry balls slapped against the human's ass merrily, creating a calypso that pleased Gurk mightily. Blood, a thin smear of feces, and Gurk's own oily yellow pre-cum lubricated Eduardo's asshole until it was as hot and slippery as Gurk's own mother's cunt.

Poor Eduardo was swiftly going into shock from the pain. His mind growing dim, he screamed "SQUAD BROKEN! SQUAD BROKEN!" over and over as the ork thrust brutally into his bruised insides. The ork's massive cock had caused a large degree of internal damage, and Eduardo was close to passing out from blood loss and fear. If his squad didn't find him soon, Eduardo knew that he would soon die. His poor plasma gun discharged into the floor one final time, overheating from a mix of pleasure and agonizing pain.

The Space Marine had been a good fuck for Gurk, but he needed something special to truly finish. Gurk's heavy balls drew up close to his body, and he felt himself tensing, about to cum. As Gurk's thick semen roiled up out of his cock and into Eduardo's battered body, the ork slammed his powerful hands shut around the Marine's neck. With a vicious jerk up and back, the ork crushed the Marine's windpipe and vertebrae, swiftly ending his life. Eduardo's anus clamped shut around Gurk's cock, the painful tightness almost causing the ork to pass out.

Gurk roared out as he climaxed in the dead Marine, his beautiful green cock pumping load after load of thick ork jizzum into Eduardo's lower intestine. The ork pulled out as Eduardo's anus slowly relaxed, releasing Gurk's cock with a wet sucking sound. Gurk used the sleeve of the Marine's uniform to wipe the thick scum of blood, shit and cum from his swiftly withering ork meat. With a satisfied grunt, Gurk walked slowly away from the Marine.

Eduardo's corpse lay cooling on the floor of the tanker, the charred remnants of his uniform stained dark with the foul fluids of both the ork and himself.

Squad broken.

Chapter 2: Regrets

Ever since meeting the handsome space marine, Gurk had been feeling decidedly un-Orkish. He often found himself writing poetry and weeping black salty tears. Much to the dismay of his fellow Ork fellows, Gurk even began to wear mascara. A lesser Ork would have been torn to pieces for showing such weakness, but Gurk's extraordinary horniness and sorrow lent him the strength of a dozen Orks. Still he sulked, thinking regretfully of his too-brief encounter with Eduardo.

Gurk had never known the meaning of regret, but the fact that he had killed his lover tore at his oozing black heart. It was only now, some time after the act, that Gurk realized his only chance at happiness had died along with Eduardo.

Orks weren't supposed to be capable of love, but emotion had finally begun to flower in the garden of Gurk's withered breast. And it had all begun with the sight of a young man's pale buttocks, gleaming coldly in the starlight....

Gurk wept himself to sleep every night.

Chapter 3: Romance Blossoms

For weeks now, the foul magic of the Necrons had clouded his mind. When they reanimated him with their life-giving skelecum, he couldn't even remember his name. He had vague memories of fighting and dying, but he had no idea of who he had been in that other life. The newly-risen Necron didn't even know what he had looked like.

The awakening of the young Necron had unexpected consequences. Unfortunately for the Necron Lords, their experiment was doomed to failure. The nameless one had been risen too quickly. As the Necron magics brought his soul back to his body, they also quickly undid the damage, leaving him perfect. He was no shambling skeleton, but a fully-fleshed human being. To all appearances, the fellow was human. Black magics had given him a second life without turning him into a mindless zombie soldier.

It wasn't long before the traces of undead magic vanished even from Eduardo's mind.

He was on a nameless planet, hunting Orks through the wilderness and dispatching them. The Necrons had destroyed the main Ork force here and the green-skinned survivors were left to fumble their way through the woods. Escape was futile. Eduardo knew this. He and his Necron masters would destroy the last of the Orks and claim this planet in the name of Death.

When the burly Ork fellow Eduardo had been hunting burst from the trees, the scales began to fall away from Eduardo's eyes and heart. Literally. The silvery flakes of Necrodermis which had fouled his humanity rotted and flaked away from him. His heart began to pump with the sweet-sour juices of love. Love is stronger than death, so they say. Eduardo's love was.

The Ork, for it was indeed Eduardo's swarthy lover, fell to his knees with a howl of anguish. Surely Eduardo must be a ghost! As Gurk babbled his apologies and wept for Eduardo's forgiveness, the Space Marine fellow knelt and embraced Gurk in his strong magical arms. The two fellows clung together in a massive pile of man-brawn and sweet tears. Their relationship had been forged out of violence, but the love that blossomed in their hearts was true.

As the Ork and human held each other, the heat of their bodies merged and began to intensify. Eduardo and Gurk felt strange stirrings at their groins, and grinned at each other lustily. Eduardo shoved Gurk back onto the ground, ripping at the Ork's loincloth with his supernaturally strong fingers. "I forgive you for killing me, Gurk," he breathed, "But this time I get to be on top!"

http://mechanicalhamster.wordpress.com/2010/10/05/introspections-pt-iii/
>Which brings us to the Harlequins. They see themselves as the future of the Eldar. They look upon the other Eldar societies and see that all of them are simply trying to survive rather than change. They are the true radicals of the Eldar, and they have a plan so audacious it fills other Eldar with horror. Their plan, their existence, stems from the myth of the Laughing God. This myth tells us that the Laughing God, Cegorach, eluded Slaanesh’s grasp and survives to this day.

>find the lost STC system
This would result in the Imperium effortlessly purging everyone except probably the Necrons. The Emperor waking up is just a plus.
And what I'm saying is that in 40k, AI inevitably turns on its masters. Every time. It's inherently evil, or something.

Isnt the ultimate goal of the Necrons/C'Tan to permanently separate the material universe from the Warp? Wouldnt that kinda fuck up.....everyone?

Well yeah. I'd assume that the point of calling it an endgame, is the different factions achieving a parity of nigh-omnipotence... the ork endgame doesn't really compare to the tau, which (unless something changes) doesn't really compare to the necron/imperium one.

And the whole "AI turning on its makers" thing is hardly an invariable rule of the setting; the Imperium has everything from land raiders with AI to genuine DAoT kill-ships that are cloaked, exterminatus-capable and completely uncrewed and controlled solely by AI, which has never, afaik, backfired on them, even though it sounds like the dumbest possible shit you could ever do ever in 40kland. And hell, people say chaos auto-corrupts AI, but chaos only corrupts AI when a sorcerer actually does weird shit to it. Chaos land raiders don't even seem to have AI anymore.

>> No.15838648

>>15838637
What? Land raiders don't have actual AIs. They're just really well programmed.
Imperial Robots aren't AI, either, yet they manage quite well.

>> No.15838655

>>15838637

And Chaos Androids that the Chaos Squats created were also possessed by daemonic entities.

That's why you're never going to see a possessed drone, or even a possessed Eldar ghostship even though those are controlled by actually psychic wraithbone circuits that by all accounts should attract daemons.

They can experience grief, go drive off on killing sprees to achieve vengeance for their slain friends, and their chapters will die to save them in turn. The whole irony of the admech shit is that the line between AI and Machine Spirit is purely subjective.

No since running over your allies isn't considered a very affectionate sign (although I can imagine the nonexistent off duty space marines owning ordinary civilian cars and running each other over as harmless pranks)

I know Gav has written bazillion Eldar codices and articles, but "a secret and horrifying plan that scares other Eldar" still sounds like 40k hyperbole.

You do know that Eldar endgame plan of Ynnead revolves around their entire race dying, and that the species is living under constant threat of Slaanesh, the worst fate imaginable awaiting them after death?

As for Dark Eldar, what could be a horror they have not experienced or about to experience at this point?

This. I am entirely sure that doing this will have you executed (not tortured, but rather killed as fast as possible). Hell, this is probably worse than having an Alpha Plus Psyker in Commoragh for the DE.

To get serious, the DE would probably shit enough bricks to build a second Terra if any Slaaneshi Army ever found a way into their city.

Word down the 40k fluff grapevine is that next edition they plan to royally fuck current lore.

Rumor has it Emp wakes up, Ultramarines are nearly wiped out by World Eaters (I am interested in this one, being a Ultras fan), and Abaddon is replaced by some chaos faggot character from the Dawn Of War 2 games. Inheritor, or something. Can't remember his name right now.

Doot doot. As for endgaming, I don't see Tau as really having one.

As someone new to 40k, why are all the races so overpowered? I hear tyranids are from another universe and have an endless supply, Necrons are old as fuck and are buried everywhere and instantly rape anything, some dudes send some probe out and found only orks out in the galaxy, etc etc

Funny thing.
The STC is the key. If they find an STC, they can wake up the Emperor. with human hypertech.
The Emperor is just the icing on the cake. Not really filling, but holds it all together.
