I love a good depiction of Spacemarines as the Emperor's Angels. Coming down to bring salvation to the hopeless citizens, the Emperor's Fury made manifest for their foes, and His Mercy for the citizens.

Do you think spacemarines every stay to help with rebuilding? Maybe the world is deemed vital, and a standing force remains to watch over it. Between training and praying, do they spend time out in the fields, down in the mines, or at construction sites, lending their superior... everything to assisting the humanity they are tasked with defending?

In the long term, the Marines Malevolent might be better for the average citizens of the Imperium than the Lamenters. Because they will keep fighting the enemies of mankind, while the Lamenters are only going to get themselves wiped out.

>> No.51657543

I like the variety. I think if people ever forget that 40k could be funny or cute, then there will be no one left who really cares about it. We all become Kriegers, blindly following orders and stabbing anyone who disagrees.

It's like how there's the dusty dry history that everyone memorizes by rote, and then there's the inscription by Euthymides on his Three Revelers that basically said 'suck it Ephronios.' If you don't really care or have an interest, you'll only ever learn the former and never the latter.

>> No.51657608

The Raven Guard have a number of humanitarian captains, occasionally even not following orders in order to prevent civilian casualties.

Ultramarines and several of their successors can be pretty damn good - the White Consuls especially spend a lot of time working with several planetary systems, since they're an Astartes Prases chapter (i.e. one of a couple dozen who guard the Eye of Terror).

The Angels of Absolution are generally considered good guys.

Not that ironic, really. They're not bad marines when they're not obsessed with the hunt and keeping secrets. The uninitiated tend to desire to be as noble and courageous in battle as the Lion, and are generally at least as good as the average Imperial Fist or Ultramarine.

Now imagine if you're not fleet-based like the Dark Angels chapter, and no longer really have an excuse to disappear the moment your battles are over with and keep marines away from ordinary people, and instead have to work closely with the people of the planet on various things - the mundane needs of supply, small areas of protection, and coordinating fights alongside one another.

>> No.51662584


Space marines are human at the end of the day, they have a lot of duties put upon their shoulders along with a reputation to uphold.

As with many branches of a vast organization, their duties and how each chapter interprets those rules/ guidelines is a thing.

Even the traitor legions at the start of the heresy believed they were fighting on the right side, not knowingly succumbing to chaos before it was too late.

The Deathguard were forced to become plague marines for respite to a Nurgle disease boiling their insides out and afflicting them to a truly inhuman pain.

A good gm can do a lot with this: given this as Guilliman's vision, and given the 40k result, we can see that some shenanigans occurred between 30k and 40k........What happened that prevented peace? That prevented Guillimans' vision of "One marine per planet, to preserve the Imperium"?
Well, it seems reasonable to conclude that the human masters of the galaxy didn't much like the idea of a million supermen taking charge and ruling over them.....so, these human leaders may well have engineered a state of full-on galactic eternal war, to keep the supermen busy and out of the human leaders' business. Hell, one could see the High Lords making deals with Chaos just to keep the space marines busy.

To be fair uppity Space Marines are literally the reason the Imperium is such a stagnant decaying mess. The problem with making supermen is that their flaws get magnified just as much as their virtues, and before you know it a family argument turns into a civil war and your galactic empire gets torn apart over daddy issues.

>> No.51684349

Well, we can't say for certain what exactly happened in 30k. There is no clear reasoning behind anything there. Was it daddy issues? Emprah being an idiot? Xenos? Chaos? Do we blame Horus, or the one who corrupted him? Or the one who corrupted him?? We get no answers from the hh books, so we can't say for certain who did what or why. We can't know if there was legitimate justification for breaking the legions.

>> No.51684363


Thanks Spock... but when we aren't talking about Homo-Suerior. The 40K universe is in a state of constant degeneration, the billions of humans who die each day fighting for a decaying Imperium while what little technology they have is slowly further lost to time and combat.

The Eldar are a race who are also in a similar fate as to the Imperium itself, they have lost technology and immense knowledge themselves, all that is left for them is a faint notion of a whisper of their hedonistic glory.

Information is lost in the Imperium simply by the method they use to store it, i.e. pen and paper. The only race with developing technology is the Tau.
If the Imperium had more organization and could deal with problems more efficiently then it would stabilize. though in its current state it looks destined to die slowly.

This is why I love 40K the grim dark future and the glimmer of possible hope.


Yeah, I searched on google 'cute 40k pics' that was one of them.

The Horus Heresy was more a symbol of how humanities greatest champions could fall to temptation.

Horus wasn't just offered immense power, he was mortally wounded and corrupted through a Chaos ritual that healed his wounds. During the ritual Horus experienced a fever dream where the Chaos Gods showed him a future of where he was forgotten and mankind worshiped the Emperor of Mankind. It played on his selfish fears and with the ritual it pushed him over the edge. He then was tricked by the Chaos Gods who played him like a puppet turning him into their puppet, all while he believed he retained free will.

But, how/why did he fall? Seriously. Just because he had a dream, he betrays everything? That seems pretty weak. And I'm not asking for an explanation: I know what geedubs has written; it just doesn't make any damned sense. And, because it doesn't make sense, we can't use it to know what happened back then.

It seems to me that, for THE epic battle of all time, you need an epic villain with epic motivations. Not some chump who got sick and had a bad dream; hell, we have Thrakka for that particular story angle, and it works for him! But that shit, for me, don't fly for Horus. Horus needs demi-god-tier motivation for his actions. Not low-level shenanigans.

>> No.51698614

Now that is a good question...first, we'd have to look at the epic betrayals of history and literature, for inspiration. So, what do we have? Well, Judas; Delilah; Olympians vs. Titans; Germany and the USSR; Brutus; Satan; Cain; American Rebellion; and so on.
Then, we'd want to look at other examples of this particular kind of betrayal - i.e. child betrays parent. Well, we often hear of struggles for succession, so this could be an example of that quest for power. We also hear of parental abuse and the children rising up for justice; this works too! Or, we could use the old standby from Star Wars: dad is actually bad, and we gotta stop him!
This last might be the way to go since it reflects our real-life experience most closely, and is the stuff of our most enduring tales: the old man is killing us so he might hold on to his power a little longer - he must be stopped!
Now, through all of this, humanity, human experience, and human feelings must be emphasized. The choice to 'turn evil' must be made consciously and reasonably and rationally; it must be a decision that we, the audience, can understand and empathize with. It cannot be an 'asspull' - it can't come out of left field; it can't be 'forced' in any way. The audience must understand the decision and sympathize with it (tho not necessarily agree).

So basically a repeat of Lorgar's fall? Horus would've been shown not only his father being worshipped and Horus forgotten, but of the Emperor planning to kill his sons?

Then it could have been spun that he was really trying to save his brothers out of love for them. Some of his brothers would never believe him or would be too broken up upon learning it, so he didn't tell ALL his brothers, just the ones he could trust. Let his "loyal" brothers still believe their father was a good man.

Honestly, pre-Heresy Horus is probably my favorite primarch. Charismatic, kind, caring, and just an all-around swell guy. I think that makes his fall even more tragic.

>> No.51699276

The fall should have been a rational decision, not chaos foolery. There should have been a definite difference of views between Horus and Emprah - perhaps H discovers E is not so altruistic; perhaps H wants to be E himself; perhaps it's a different opinion on the ability of humanity to rule itself; maybe H discovers that E's plans are only a ruse to elevate E to godhood; maybe H realizes a way to stop chaos that E refuses; maybe H realizes not all xenos are evil. Literally anything but a chaos 'infection.'
