Anyway 5th edition hordes of chaos army book states that chaos gods and daemons are physical manifestation of mortal feelings and superstitions. They exist because mortals believe they exist. Even barely knowing the concept of chaos entities gives them strenght.

The Gods were never just daemons though.
They create daemons, but are not daemons themselves.

>> No.53868608

They were powerful amalgamations bound to the emotions of living creatures. In essence, an unthinkable mass of emotion magic that sometimes emanates in a certain way. Khorne is every bloodletter, all of them are Khorne and more. That's why they are fickle and chaotic, they aren't one sentient creature, they are moving masses and a single demon is a fraction of that. So, in essence, they are just bigass demons that are so bloated that they aren't clearly defined anymore because they have encroached on so many areas. They ARE their domains. But in theory, every demon could become that powerful if he somehow managed to garner the power and wrestle domains from the others.
At least it used to be this way sometimes and the Literal God with Sapience interpretations always seemed incredibly dumb to me.

>> No.53868643

>But in theory, every demon could become that powerful

No. Daemons are created by the Gods. A God could in theory expend all his energy and create a daemon as powerful as he was, but daemons are different from the Gods.

You separate WHFB in roughly three eras, 1st/2nd (being more of a Wargame/RPG hybrid than others), 3rd through 5th (being the Herohammer Editions) and 6th through 8th (being the more block focused editions)

6th Edition was a big overhaul and is in my opinion generally the best edition, but not flawless, because 7th Edition brought a much needed Magic overhaul and 8th Edition gave Infantry more staying power (but went completely overboard)
Our group plays 6th Edition because it has reasonably sized armies and gorgeous supplements, with Magic from 7th and casualties from the back + Steadfast (negated together with rank bonus) and it plays great.

6th with houserules it is.

You could either try out 6th straight up while keeping in mind that Magic and Casualties in combat are questionable, or you start looking for fixes right out of the gate.

Magic from 7th Edition is pretty easy to transfer to 6th.
As for the infantry fixes:
>Casualties are removed from the back, NOT from the front/"Step Up" rule
This fixes one of the bigges complaints about 6th Edition straight up. In 6th, casualties are taken from the front, meaning: If your unit is four wide and four guys are killed before your initiative comes up, you don't get to hit back. This is a pretty simple fix that gives some hitting power to block infantry.

>Negatable Steadfast
Steadfast is a rule from 8th Edition that says, in essence, as long as a unit has more full ranks than the biggest unit on the opposing side, they get to take morale checks without penalty if they lose. This gives blocks enhanced staying power, but leads to the inevitable problem of unbreakable buses with fucktons of ranks.
The easy fix is to take the above rule and add
>A unit can only be steadfast if it has a rank bonus
This gives blocks greater staying power against MSU chargers, not too much and places greater value on maneuvering.

I'd change nothing else at first, only if something comes up that your group really doesn't like.

Fellas and felletes,

I'm thinking of making a 3000pt Chaos list for 8th/8.5 but the only real way to make it competitive that I see, would be making the list half Daemons and half Warriors.

Is it normal to feel that Chaos feels a bit limited in terms of buildup and composition? I miss the synergy of Undead Legions, Aelves and Greater Emp.

Units that I like:

Sorceror Lord
Chariot - gorebeast and regular (seemingly the go-to troop choice, obscene value)
Flash hounds

and Throgg

Throgg is arguably op

Warriors of Chaos are pretty good by themselves to be honest, Throgg makes trolls core and is one of the most competitive set ups.

Sounds like it could work. If they tie up a unit or two, act in concert with infantry or cavalry, or waste your enemy's time, then they've done their job. Probably their best use is making your enemy worry about them, most of all.

That's actually quite neat to know as I like the fluff I've come up with for my Marauder Horsemen but have yet to field them due to, atleast from my understanding, their poor capabilities on paper.

However what I was thinking with my 2x Chariots of Nurgle was that they would be able to reliably (in most situations) take care of one flank. Perhaps a more prudent way to go about it would be to use 2x Gorebeast Chariots of Nurgle instead? I suppose that I could always spend the core tax on some forsaken or even an additional unit of warriors.

It wasn't headcanon and it was pretty good IMO. It was the ultimate irony in 40k: these beings who were the worst enemies of humanity were created from humanity's own flaws. It wasn't perfect but I preferred it a million times over the new "Chaos is infinite" crap the lore's pulling.

TL;DR they were powerful spirits that came into the world when the Warp Gates collapsed.

The Gods of Chaos/Order weren't daemons but they weren't gods. That mantle was given to them after they came into the world.

The Old Ones weren't BTFO either. Chaos (and Order) only came into existence after the Warp Gates fell new fluff get out, but the Warp always had an innate corrupting or controlling influence over things. The Old Ones themselves resisted it pretty easily but their creations couldn't, so they kept making worlds to resist the Warp's influence. Technically they could've beaten the Warp immediately had they just closed it off, like what the Elves tried to do later, but since the Warp was necessary for space travel they didn't want to give up their empire, so instead they just kept trying to make living things that could fight the Warp's influence. When the Gates fell they didn't lose or get BTFO, they just shrugged and fucked off.

Lizzies say they'll come back and kick Chaos back into the Warp someday, which fuels everything they and the fat frog do, which is preparing for their return which may or may not actually happen.

I stand corrected, this is true.

Chaos as an entity - the Gods of Chaos - though didn't exist until the Gates collapsed. Up until that point there was no defined side of Chaos and Order, there were just Void Gods who believed different things. When the Gates collapsed that's when Khorne and company declared themselves Chaotics and Alluminas and company declared themselves Lawful, with both chaos and law being two of the multitude of possibilities of reality.

Before that Chaos just basically meant Entropy, uncertainty and such. Chaos as a term didn't refer to Chaos in the way we think of it, just like Order didn't refer to things fighting against manfiested Chaos but Gods in the Void who stood for stability and anti-entropy.

Remember that Realm of Chaos mentions the possibility of the current Chaos Gods could be fragments or pieces of a much larger entity, The Great Undivided, who lies in the center of the Warp. In this case the Order Gods are fragments of some singular Law entity. I wonder who the Big Gods of Chaos and Order are.

Probably Gork and Mork.

Except no, they didn't. The Void just had Gods prior to the Warp Gate collapse. Some of these Gods were different. Only after the Gates fell did the Chaos Gods we know of manifest, as the book says, "as true Chaotics, beings of whim and change", and along with them came beings who preferred a single-minded approach, "lawful beings" whose ideas clashed with those of the "true Chaotics". This clash became what we know as the struggle between Chaos and Order for dominion of the world and its inhabitants, and the goal evolved over the years to the point of, rather than contesting dominion with similar but different fellow beings from the Void, now the two sides just want to permanently destroy each other. Whenever this happens, it's said the Void will sweep everything up into primordial and formless beings, Gods and all, and return them to the spiritual essences they once were. Basically everything's destroyed and Malal's dream comes true, except he's destroyed too.

To understand the old lore you've got to read into it and unfortunately a lot of what built it up, like White Dwarf and early web supplements, have been lost. Reading Moorcock and understanding his thoughts on the balance of Order and Chaos in a fantasy world also helps tremendously, since it's his ideas that were adopted (initially) for Warhammer's Gods of Order and Chaos.

Pretty nice fanfiction

>> No.53879719

What part of that is fanfiction?

>> No.53879769

That Law was only a small aspect of Chaos. Both the Chaotics and Lawfuls are said to be dfferent possibilities of Chaos, but Chaos itself is a neutral, primordial thing. It's just energy or eldritchy material. The Law Gods and Chaos Gods were both only living aspects of raw energy, and while 1st ed of WFRPG says both are doomed to be destroyed and consumed by the Void, that was expanded on later, and there were other possible outcomes. The book itself even talks about the Gods of Order winning and what their world would look like.

>Law being but one of the multitudinous possibilities of Chaos

>Both the Chaotics and Lawfuls are said to be dfferent possibilities of Chaos, but Chaos itself is a neutral, primordial thing.

Chaos is the thing. From Chaos there are Chaos beings, but also Lawful beings as Law is but one form of Chaos. Law is Chaos, but not Chaos in it's entirety as the "true chaotics" are.

>1st ed of WFRPG says both are doomed to be destroyed and consumed by the Void

No, it says Lawful beings are. The Chaos beings will remain to enforce their will on the them.

>there were other possible outcomes.

No there wasn't.

>The book itself even talks about the Gods of Order winning and what their world would look like.

It talks about what the world would look like if they won, but it never actually says they can win, instead it states that they are doomed.

>> No.53881244

I hate chaosfags but I don't hate people who play or like Chaos, not at all. I believe Storm of Chaos era Warhammer was the best and even though Chaos lost they were still a threat. I like that. I like them being a threat and standing toe to toe with everyone else, having their own strengths and weaknesses as any faction should.

But when you become a fag for Chaos or any faction, like /tg/'s Carnac, that's when it gets bad, when your playful in-universe disdain for other "inferior" factions becomes literally out-of-game wanting them to be removed, destroyed, and trashed while your faction is buffed as much as possible and made to be the single ultimate faction ever while also insulting and mocking everyone else... that's when it gets bad, and that's exactly what GW did.

Like you can hate Xeno scum want to purge all Greenskins, but that doesn't mean you go and demand and yell and shout for Greenskins and Xenos to be completely destroyed and removed from the game while your faction is made totally omnipotent. That's just factionfaggotry rather than faction fandom.

And for all we make fun of chaosfags like Carnac here, GW themselves are the ultimate chaosfags and that isn't looking likely to change. Ever since 2010 any story about Chaos is either them destroying everyone else without breaking a sweat or some powerful character coming in and seemingly standing against them only to get annihilated by some TOTALLY NEW AND NEVER BEFORE SEEN power of Chaos so they can make Chaos look even more powerful and everyone else look even more pathetic.

Worfing to a whole new level.

To be fair, Chaos is the ultimate enemy. Even greenskins can recognize that, as they...sorta did in Storm of Chaos. Being the end of existence doesn't help, as it's like Doctor Who and trying to find a bad guy and Davros starts robbing banks.

I've written a Chaos lord that desperately wants to avert the End Times, which happened in his timeline several hundred years in the future. He would rather keep the status quo than see the universe end.

>> No.53881386

I personally prefer Chaos being somewhat less of an omnipresent threat than it normally is in Fantasy. I like a bit more of a balanced approach to the various threats; sure, there's Chaos, but then there's the Skaven and Greenskins to worry about.

And don't get me started on them nasty Nippon bastards.

>> No.53881423

Honestly it should always be there, like a fact of life. But it needs to take a back seat to other threats. Like when learned men say Chaos is getting stronger and more intense, it shouldn't get quicker with each Incursion, it should be completely random. At least with their daemon allies. The Norscans, Kurgans and Hung can be predictable with how many warriors they can produce.

>> No.53881430


>He would rather keep the status quo than see the universe end.
One of the things I hate most about NuHammer is how the motivations of Chaos make no sense and are insultingly shitty to other factions.

Chaos didn't intend destruction of the world, at least not in the end. They were empowered by followers and wanted to corrupt and control everything. People worshipping them was what gave them power. They wanted to rule reality. However, the old books say that if Chaos won or lost reality would be so fucked either way that it'd all be destroyed, and some old stories involved the Chaos deities and their best followers trying to think of ways to avoid it, gaining more followers to maybe become strong enough to avoid it, just like the old gods of Law did. It made Chaos feel like a real faction rather than lolrandumb villain sues.

But what the fuck is their motivation now? They control infinite universes and don't need followers? Nothing can ever stop them because they just can't? The only reason they didn't destroy the world before was because they were bored? All other gods are weak shits in their light? Only Sigmar poses even a mild threat and they can just warp him away like it's nothing?

Zero motivation, shitting on all other factions, becoming unstoppable, making no sense, and become irritatingly awful Mary Sues.

It genuinely pisses me off that GW did this.

Dude calm down, I get you. I also think Archaon is a shit character and that all the chaoswank is trash. I used to know a guy before it got out of hand that was a "Chaosfag" as we here would describe it. He was completely convinced that Tzeentch was literally the best and most powerful thing every; that he was behind everything and that any and every event ever forever was part of his machinations. It's because of him that I regard Tzeentch as the god of pretentious faggots, with Tzeentch being the most pretentious of them all. He's just a batshit insane bird that could probably be ignored if not for his dick-sticking into other people's business.

There's a reason why I play Daemons and not Warriors, and why I prefer Khorne and Slaanesh (mostly Slaanesh); they don't really give a fuck if they win or loose, or how long they're in the material realm. They're there to do what they do. Khorne daemons just want to tussle and Slaanesh daemons want to goof off and see what they can get into while they're there.

To me, it's not about winning. Destroying the world is counter-intuitive. BTFOing everyone is as well. If the world was destroyed fuck you, GW what are we daemons supposed to do? The Material realm is where all the fun shit happens.

This was part of my BBEG's motivations in WFRP. He was from a future where Chaos won and all reality started to dissolve.

There seems to always have been a strong cabal of Chaosfags within GW. Remember Tamurkhan? That was already supposed to lead into the destruction of WHFB, if only in the "far far far" future. People hated it so much that they aborted the idea after one book.
Then they turned around and pulled it through in the actual universe. It honestly seems like shutting down WHFB was a foregone conclusion and some fags pushed for the whole Chaosshit out of spite for the pushbacks at SoC and Tamurkhan.

If you're aiming for 1850, I'd suggest using the necromancer as a master at level 4, as a vampire lord of the same level would be a massive point investment. You can take him as a regular level 2 vampire instead and make him a fighting type without much risk as he's not the general. The Wight should carry the battle standard, but if it's magical he won't take other magical items, making him a worse fighter. I suggest giving the Grave Guard the banner of the barrows and put all your characters in it. You have a solid base with what you have at around 1500 points, giving you room for magic items, and to maybe add a large unit of skeletons or zombies later to give you something cheap but durable.

My own experience with Nurgle Ogres is limited to that one time I fielded 6 of them and they got roflstomped by a unit of Dwarven thunderers. In melee.

If you're only running the one you want the blender set up, you can find the details on google but basically it's maxing our on melee and keeping him as a level 1 wizard. Usual options are red thirst and quickening vampire powers and the ogre blade magical sword.

This is subject, it depends what you want them to do, with five I'm inclined to say great weapons and hunt some war machines. At 10 they make alright anvils with shield and lance and you can run more if you put the Vamp with them with great weapons.

10 is a small number so I'm not sure what to say. People seem to prefer sword and board but I think in hordes of 30 - 40 great weapons can be good.

That's more like 40K, in Fantasy the average is usually 2000.

>> No.53893615

1st edition WFRPG, several of the earliest novels and stories on the earliest days of the internet, the works of Moorcock which Chaos and Law were based on.

Yeah, but they weren't omnipotent. They didn't have multiple universes and control everything in the material world like they do now, and other gods could match or beat them.

Remember that Fantasy Khaine gave Slaanesh a very royal asskicking and Tzeentch fled from Solkan when he got angry enough.

Of the Chaos gods they had their own strengths and weaknesses. Khorne was a ridiculously powerful warrior. Nurgle was a godly plaguebringer. Tzeentch was a master manipulator, planner, and sorcerer. Slaanesh was a master of corruption, subterfuge, and dexterity. They balanced each other out and had varying motives and ideas on how to do things, how to dominate the world without breaking reality, and how to beat their Void kinsmen counterparts.

Unlike now where they're nearly identical, all omnipotent and unstoppable, and all share the same "evil for the lulz" motivation.

>The great incursions like the Storm of Chaos were actually noted to be happening more and more frequently.

By an insane philosopher who killed himself after having a dream of Chaos winning after he read a Chaos book and Tzeentch spoke to him. It was like Sauron telling Denethor that he was gonna lose and all of Gondor would get slaughtered. It seemed true, but in the end it wasn't.

The Storm of Chaos also was the worst defeat Chaos had suffered since the days of Aenarion. They got absolutely annihilated by a comparatively mundane force. Franz even speculated they had the ability to march into the Chaos Wastes and end it, but that in doing so they would become corrupted and turn into the enemy they were trying to fight.

>> No.53893695

No. The line of text that Carnacs desperately cling to itself states Chaos will be destroyed as well, which plays into the Moorcockian idea of Chaos and Law existing in required balance, because one or the other winning is too much for the material world to handle and the Void steps in to right itself.

I'm not gonna call you a Carnac just yet because you actually seem more sincere and less like a sperg, and I think you just misunderstand or are misnterpreting old lore which can be admittedly difficult to follow.

Chaos didn't destroy the Old Ones. The Gates fell and they just left. It's speculated that it's possible the Warp killed them and destroyed the gates, yes, but that isn't guaranteed and it's only one of several possibilities. No one knows what truly happened, whether the Old Ones left, stayed hidden, fought and died, or something else.

They didn't destroy the Old Ones though. Hell, the old books say the Old Ones could curbstomp the material forces of Chaos with ease, it's the Warp they're worried about because of its endless exertion of corruptive energies on living beings. Them being capable of resisting this corruption, something no other living being save for gods can do, also says something about their strength. The Lizardmen believe the Old Ones will return when the time's right and smash Chaos into oblivion AND seal off the Warp permanently. That's their dies irae.

>> No.53893763

And remember in all of this I'm not trying to be a fag for other factions or hate on Chaos. Chaos is cool. I like them a lot. I think they should be powerful, menacing, and threatening to everyone. They're the classic fantasy villains playing across all of Gygax's moralities. They're complex edlritchy monsters that are always fascinating to me.

What I don't like and what I will be an antifag to are Carnacfags who think everyone else sucks and should suck and that if every waking second isn't spent jerking off Chaos then it's not right and must be changed or else the game is ruined.

>> No.53893822

Aye, the Old Ones just gave up on the planet because shit was tainted and just not worth their time anymore.

and if you go with the idea of the chaos gods only being aspects of a much much bigger god that the old ones fought it makes even more sense. the chaos gods we know are small frys compared to the old ones and whatever evil thing is in the warp. the old ones might be the big gods of good someone mentioned before too, above aluminas and the rest.

No, the average vampire (not a fresh one) needs a pint of blood or less. Of course, sometimes they decide they want more, or decide to kill you so no other vampire will ever get to sample you, or just have a policy of husking their victims. As a rule, though, Lahmians are sippers.

Being fed on is addictive and one of the most intensely pleasurable things a human can experience (at least if it's a Lahmian or a von Carstein). It stunts free will and fosters intense loyalty in the victim. These 'bloodswain' lack initiative but will literally fight to the brutal death for their vampire.

I think that's the opposite of the problem. They made his helmet too short. Now it looks retarded and stumpy instead of thin and elegant.
