Yes, The Khornate section in the Daemon codex says that Khorne gets off from all warfare. Orks, humans, Eldar, and Tyranids are all playthings and puppets dancing to his war tune and marching to his maw.

No mention of them in current lore but they could exist.

There is still Nurglite Orks (Picture related). G&M beating up Nurgle is an Ork myth and not actual fact.

What would happen if Tzeentch ruled the universe?

What is the personality of a Tzeentch cultist? One can assume that they would be necessarily hopeful and manipulative of their surroundings, as that is Tzeentch's core element. However, would a smart cultist not see the folly in fooling the fool god, and resolve to serve Tzeentch utterly and completely, as a Grey Knight serves the Emperor? Would not he remove all hope and manipulation from his heart to serve Tzeentch most effectively? Is this not a contradiction?

>What would happen if Tzeentch ruled the universe?

Happened once.

The Chaos Gods teamed up on him and throw him off a cliff. He fell and parts him shattered into countless shards reducing his power considerably. This caused the birth of magic in the universe.

>> No.29271206

To elaborate: Tzeentch always plays with cultists and backstabs them. Thus a smart cultist would surrender completely to Tzeentch's will, and avoid believing he can trick the devil and get away with his skin. Thus the cultist has no trace of Tzeentchian values.

>On the edges of the Ork Empire of Octarius the Death Guard and the Overfiend’s hordes fight over the Urgorn Dust Cloud. A vast asteroid field of psychokinetic rock, the cloud coalesces around the space hulks and scrap-fortresses of the Orks, creating tiny worlds with micro-atmospheres. The Terminus Est wreaks havoc by infecting the environments with its Warp-fly miasma, the ship choking their tiny atmospheres with the bodies of billions of insects. Orks die in their millions, their green corpses bursting into rotting puddles of virulent disease. Yet the war rages on for months as more and more of the aliens spill out of the Octarius Empire looking for a good fight.

There have been many cases of Orks succumbing to infection and disease (Example above).

The Dark Eldar have pesticides/viruses that purge entire worlds of Orks.

>Tzeentch always... backstabs them

Great exaggeration. Of all gods and godlike beings, he intervenes to save his followers with most frequency. His mark's effect reflects this.

RELYING on said on a being with a chaotic, oceanic consciousness is pretty weird. Khornates don't rely on Khorne to make themselves able to hack down titans with rusty axes, so Tzeentchians shouldn't rely on Tzeentch to make themselves invincible.

What? What don't you get? The Dark Eldar are incredibly indulgent and are completely aware that when they die they'll be devoured by Slaanesh but they're plan is to be brought back to life (implying their souls are pulled back out of Slaanesh) via a kind of cloning.

Tzeentch is incredibly easy to serve.

Basically, you serve Tzeentch by acting with motive. You serve Khorne by acting in a certain way, but not with any purpose behind it. You serve Slaanesh by savoring emotion and experience. You serve Nurgle by either not acting at all or by bringing down others.

But as soon as you act with motive, you're serving Tzeentch.

I think it's hilarious how we're supposed to believe that Chaos is the greatest threat to the Imperium, yet in the actual game, CSM are one of the worst competitive armies, and have flat out the worst 6e codex. How am I supposed to take the fluff seriously when they're so bland and easy to beat?
