The one thing I didnt like about the Secrets of the Tau book was that there was a Kroot pocket thief. I dont know why, but the idea of a member of a millions of years old shamanistic avian-reptilian alien race that lives entirely to eat exotic meat... have to steal pocket money to buy said exotic meat instead of just hunting that shit in the wild... makes me feel super weird.

The Necron book is also the most powerful the Necrons have ever been in the entire history of 40k.

>> No.72051998

What age did you guys get into 40K in? I got into it around middle school years and years back. I would not have gotten into it if this was my introduction. Part of the appeal was how over the top and "uncensored" the game was, and I feel like these books would end up being a bit patronizing and turn kids off from 40k.

>> No.72052042

I'm not a fan of 40k but these books don't really make any sense to me. It's a little odd if they're intending on getting kids into a grimdark setting using kid friendly books.

I was in college. I got in because of a professor who ran a Dark Heresy campaign.

I had my neighbor and his older brother introduce me to the game when I was in middle school.

I didn't really get into it until I was in college though. Then I picked up DoW cause it was on sale and cause I wanted a game like Company of Heroes, and I fell in love with the super over-the-top voice acting.

>> No.72052182

And yeah these books are super patronizing, and really weird considering the tone of every other 40k related media. It's like back in the 90s when there were cartoons and toy lines for R-Rated movies.

>> No.72052232


I got in to it in middle school, though I've since dropped it.

I enjoyed the vast, detailed war fighting and the sense of a fleshed out post-post-post apocalyptic future, where like it said on the tin, "there is only war." As the setting veered deeper and deeper in to space Opera and away from stuff like Eisenhorn and Cain, it stopped resonating with me.

This entire 40Kids thing feels like an attempt by a late 30s millenial trying to "get" that 15 to 25 zoomer crowd with a "subversive and adult" kids product, the way Steven Universe and Adventure Time have deeper, more mature themes (so I've been told) riding underneath their bright and exciting kid show facades.

Which I think won't work since it waters down and sells off the very core appeal of 40k. Unless the Age of Guillaman rumors are right and they're getting ready for a big noble bright reboot of the entire setting. In which case I'm glad I dropped it.

>> No.72052259

Around 14, I'd say? The first book I read was Xenos from Eisenhorn, and I think I was hooked at the part where Eisenhorn contemplates mercy-killing a wounded woman, then realizes he can't. Also, the girl who clearly likes him dies immediately after her introduction.

That set the mood, all right. Especially the part where you realize that the good guys actually torture the fuck out of people to the point of skinning them. If I had to read shit like this, I'd have written it off.

When I was in high school I used to post over at Stardestroyer.net. As you might guess from the name it was a fucking nerd forum for fucking nerds, so there was quite a bit of Warhmamer 40k discussion, which got me interested enough in the setting to get the Eisenhorn Omnibus. I was frankly already sold on it by the time I got the omnibus, but that really solidified my interest. The thing that got me into it was that for an edgelord teenager it felt way more mature than Star Wars and Star Trek, but more importantly I really liked that it had a proper sense of scale. Space is big and in Warhammer things feel properly big. It also feels like strategy, tactics, and logistics actually matter in in 40k in a way it doesn't matter in a lot of other sci-fi settings. In 40k heroism alone is never enough, and even the extremely heroic genetically engineered ubermenschen in powered armour need artillery support, which I always thought was more interesting than winning solely because of individual virtue. Granted that none of this is at all consistent, but big settings with lots of authors are always inconsistent, the point is that these elements that I like feel much more present in 40k than in other settings.

I haven't read Warhammer Adventures and I'm not likely to, but if they're kids books I expect they lean away from the heavy mental and industrialized warfare aesthetics in favour of focusing on adventurism and individual valour, which really moves away of the things that made 40k appealing to me.

>> No.72052560

Yeah, sure, blood and gore is fine and how 40k should market itself up front - so what the fuck is this? This doesn't look like it hits any of the 40k chords and I think it's kind of faggy to advertise the universe like this, not just because it's gay but it's so out of whack from its actual themes. Someone out there is going to get into 40k because they think it's some adventure novel shit and then when they're through with this get slapped with a Daemonculaba. Great. Just let its regular themes set the bar and be the gatekeeper for interest, who thought this was a good direction to expand?

It makes perfect sense once your realise that there's now a decent chunk of the 40K audience as well as the people running GW who got into 40K when they were kiddiewinks exactly because it was edgy and grimdark and OTT and filled with black-as-the-night British humour, which their parents would have nixed right off if they were aware enough to know what it was about, who are themselves now pearl-clutching parents of little shitmachines.

They want to start playing with their kids, but they're too precious and hypocritical to let their kids have the experience they had, instead demanding Babby's First 40K instead.

Will it work? We'll have to wait at least ten years to find out - the test is whether you catch the big enough to come back after the teenage "everything I liked before I noticed girls is lame and ghey" phase.

To add to all of this. We also know that while Shadowsun has been frozen for a long time, she's also seen far more shit than Torchstar has. She's older, more beaten up, and has had more stressful experiences plus a ton of drama and having to be the military face of the T'au Empire. Compare that to a young, rebellious T'au who's got flame tattoos and loves to jump into the middle of things with flamethrowers.

So ontop of having established there's physiological differences between male and female t'au and seeing that Shadowsun's miniature doesn't look that bad for someone who's spent their entire life fighting and that in our own species we see huge variation in women's appearence (and do so in some other 40k races), therefore, it's not beyond reason that Torchstar is indeed cute.

But believe it or not, some of us actually like /tg/ and don't want to see it shat up by a bunch of weirdoes who screech whenever there's anything that makes them feel uncomfortable.

You do know coom came about because of dedicated discord raids on /v/ to try and get people to adopt anti-sexual ideologies by making impressionable underagefags adopt it until the mods wordfiltered the term cumbrain to coomer (because they're all equally unfunny idiots who think that the undead, beaten-into-the-ground wojaks are anything other than painful) and by using it, you're just revealing yourself to be a complete cunt, right?

What canon sources? The description in the codexes which match that depiction of Torchstar? The models which clearly show Shadowsun, the grizzled veteran looking feminine, smooth faced and different head/face structure to male t'au heads? Even the more screeching artwork of Shadowsun (who again is not Torchstar) doesn't look bad, she's just screeching with a warface.

>> No.72068455

We have a pic here of Shadowsun and she's not 'ugly', she's certainly not dried up (less wrinkled than some of the Soriatas artwork we've got) and this is supposed to be the grizzled veteran who has spent nearly a millenia being repeatedly frozen, then is let out for years at a time to fight before she's chucked back in the freezer. Only now she's been out of deep freeze for ages due to the T'au empire actually stalling in their expansion.

So you literally ignored everything I said, decided to make up somethign I didn't say (that Shadowsun was the epinnacle of T'au beauty, which was something I was actively arguing against saying that she's likely pretty banged up as she's fairly old and has seen nothing but combat for years and years and years even with cryo...) and then added some whining about anime which no one was bringing up to it.

I'm glad Tau are shown as more openly evil

That way brainlets can only rightfully bitch about tau's rules instead of also stupidly bitch that the only faction that tries to look good to other races so they can convert them seem too good.
It's almost like they DONT want them to know that the etherals are so megalomaniac that they divide their own race into castes, that they sterilize converts and they take over races' authority with mind control, all with a psudeoreligious commie dogma.
It's like claiming the ayys from xcom are good because they slaughter only so many and just want humanity to be their newest lab subject.

It's SPECULATED that they did it, as an explanation for the diminishing human population after the conflict ended. However, even if they did, the humans of Kronus weren't just converts; they'd already joined the Tau once, only to betray them once the Imperial Guard showed up.

Obviously it's not exactly nice to sterilize populations with a history of rebellion and betrayal, but that's still practically kid gloves compared to how the Imperium deals with dissent.

Systematic genocide and total war resulting in the horrible deaths of billions aren't the same as predator prey relationships.

I like the tau lore because they are a child race that got in over their head. They are like the imperium in a way, fighting for survival with a concept for motivation and justification (greater good vs. The Emperor). And just like the imperium those on the front lines fighting for their cause may as well just be pieces on a chess board to be used by the real rulers to get what they want (ethereals vs. high lords of terra/different nobles/primarchs/etc.).
