You're threading a very, very dangerous path here, Pilgrim.

Anyway... Matt Ward - some geek - was hired by GW and ordered with "making things better". And he did. He added plenty of homoerotic fluff, made everyone and their dog wear even more armor, and turned Ultramarines into pretty much uber-Chapter, its Boss, Ruboute, was elevated so high, that the Emperor himself seems like a mere underling compared to His Ruboutic Glory.

And then saved a whole planet from Tyranids by himself by beating an Tyranid Fleet's Hive-Queen in hand-to-hand combat. And then was exiled and brought to to a planet owned by the Iron Warriors, by a fucking daemon no less, where he proceeded to fuck up the whole planet and kill like, everyone. Most of the time without any armor on. I believe towards the end he gets shot like, 10 times, but they don't hurt him because 'lol he's too close to the bolters so the rounds just go through him and don't have time to detonate inside his body'.

Then somehow he's picked up by the Grey Knights and found not corrupted and brought back to Macragge.

Read the Libra Slaanesh. Slaanesh is about more than just getting your dick wet.

The circle of Avidity plays upon the interloper's greed. The circle of Gluttony is next; it plays upon the intruders desire for lavish foods and wines. The third circle is the circle of Carnality, where the perfect desires of the heart reside; testing to the extreme the individuals desires. The fourth circle is the circle of Paramountcy, where the traveller is greeted by roars of adulation, here the intruder is tempted with absolute power over others. The penultimate circle is the circle of Vainglory. The traveller is presented with his ideal self-image, and if he feels but an ounce of pride, for eternity will this circle be his prison. The last circle is the most perilous, it is a heavenly place, within which resides a seemingly perfect environment. Every second that passes fills the intruder with bliss, but to rest and enjoy the pleasure for a single moment results in falling into a coma, and eventually dying in idle bliss. One may walk the circles for centuries, but cannot for a second give into his ultimate desires for he will fall.

I think you just dont know much about the Chaos gods, so Ill just say this: Nononononono. Slaanesh is about excess. Striving for perfection is one of the most common causes why you would fall to him, many of his most prominent minions had this as their falling, for example Lucius.

Space Marines are depicted as being more human than you think. They have flaws and weaknesses and egos. If they didn't have flaws and weaknesses and egos the Horus Heresy would never have happened.

Celestial Lions dared to question the Inquisition for what they considered the pointless exterminatus of innocent people.
The Lamenters and Salamanders have gone against the odds in attempts to safe guard human life, rather than just coldly dealing with the tactical threats.
Of course there are other Chapters who are the opposite.

This is the thing with 40ks background lore. You can read into in a lot of different ways. You cherry pick the lore that fits into your story and then play a few games and roll a few dice to see how your story plays out. The canon is there to give you a loose framework.

I've never truly decided. Chapters I like:

Space Wolves: Tainted geneseed, renegades, but genuine heroes loved throughout the Imperium. Prefer the "Nordic Barbarians in Space" aspect of them, to the "Wolf Wolf Wolf Wolfy Wolf of the Wolf Wolf" take on them that Phil Kelly did.

Imperial Fists: Gritty chapter of marines with less perfect codex drilling than the Ultramarines, but twice the balls. Wear bright yellow, camo is for the weak. Masters of fortification, siege, urban warfare. Torture themselves to build up mental fortitude.

Iron Knights: Imperial Fists successor chapter. Their champion won the Feast of Blades twice in a row. Basically the Black Templars except more light hearted and capable of smarter tactics.

Black Templars: The real diehard chapter. No major flaws, no following the codex, charge to glory all day erryday.

Minotaurs: Have a Greco-Roman look about them, even more than the Ultramarines, utterly merciless and terrifying. Clad in shining bronze, kill stuff with spears. Crush rebellions for the High Lords of Terra in exchange for all the equipment they'll even need. Probably descended from World Eater geneseed: even if they aren't, they basically act like the World Eaters did before turning traitor.

it's blink and you'll miss it, but the games point out that Blood Raven tactics and chapter assembly are almost identical to Loyalist Alpha Legion ones.

I hasten to add that it's pretty much guaranteed to be a ruse to confuse the blatant Thousand Son origin

It's mainly that Abbadon has a raging hateboner for the Ravens, and considers them to be his, in body and soul.

I generally interpret it as Abaddon believing all traitor legions belong to him by right, but it might be that he's hunting them because he hates the idea of loyalist Lunar Wolves being around. Especially considering how far he's gone to erase the origins of the legion from memory.

It's probably a red herring.

Loyalists: Ultramarines, 'classical' influence, their own Empire which is the nearest 40k has to a high science-fiction society. Beautifully intriguing.

technically two separate chapters, although the Knights Inductor are simply another take on the reasonable marine. Sort of like the Desert Fangs/angry marines.

The Knights Inductor are really what happens when you let a hardline Recongregationist/Xenos Hybrist marine chapter have a 1000 years to remake a sector in their influence without any real interference due to warpstorm.

Hmm. Could get a little weird- I wouldn't mind squeezing the Reasonable Marines under the umbrella term Knights Inductor since it takes away the more comedic connotations. Only catch is the two 1d4chan articles kind of splinter at points, since I mostly run the Reasonable Marine one.

Nice to see these guys being mentioned again.

Yeah, the Knights Inductor are a more 'realistic' take on the Reasonable Marines, still willing to negotiate with various factions and very open minded when it comes to xenos, but not able to make everyone everywhere play nice all the time, and willing to shoot to kill if you don't give them another option.

I bought it from the understanding that McNeill is a cool guy. Of course it wasn't a work that made pic related but 1d4chan sings his praises. Still you're right, I could be reading plenty worse. Also looking at the Space Marine Battles series, although honestly I should read actual good fiction.

>>25199655
They make for short reads though, and there certainly isn't anything wrong with just having something fun to digest now and again. I'm doing my best to avoid the more reviled authors, so I'm mainly picking up big names works like Abnett or specific recommended novels. In high school I read anything with Forgotten Realms emblazoned on the cover, only to discover years later all of those wasted hours after college taught me the wonders of Dick and Heilein, so I'm trying to avoid making the same mistake.
