I bet if the imperium would use eldar tits as "morale" boosters, then there would be no deserters or traitors

>> No.77236660

The Imperium's men-at-arms will never desert their brothers on the battlefield or betray so long as they understand what they're fighting for.

Mankind, the Imperium, and the Holy Emperor are already well known but every guardsmen has a family struggling at the homefront to keep us armed and supplied for the next offensive. In the fleeting moments of peace we remember why we fight and who we fight for.

Glory to the Imperium of Mankind and honor to those who serve it faithfully and bravely.

>The vast majority of cities in the Imperium are dark, brooding places where the countless subjects of the God-Emperor eke out a meagre living. Vast stinking factories filled with grinding machines cause the bones to shudder, while blackened chimneys vomit forth thick, dark clouds of toxic smoke, blocking out the sun itself.

>Every citizen from the moment they can walk lives a life of perpetual misery in service, slaving away at back-breaking and mind-numbing tasks for over twenty solar hours a day under the cruel thorned whips of overseers, before dragging their exhausted, labour-wracked bodies beneath their benches to snatch a few solar hours of fitful sleep. Those who collapse, their bodies spent, are thrown alive into the great feed processors. Many others are lost to suicide or workplace accidents, and it is rare to see a citizen over the age of 35 on most Imperial worlds.

>The spires of the wealthy reach high above the clouds of filth and are filled with such opulence as can scarcely be comprehended by those far below. Indeed, on most worlds, it is normal that the yearly income of one mid level noble family could feed one billion serfs comfortably for over one hundred years. In these sanctuaries of the privileged, nothing is wanted for and the elite live in indifference and even open glee to the suffering in the streets and factories beneath them.

>There are cities given to the administration of Humanity's innumerable population and infinite resources, every inhabitant enslaved to routine and process, every last round of ammunition and grain of wheat accounted for by stone-faced scribes. There, the true worth of human life is established by workers jaded by the never-ending monotony of their assigned chore. For most, the cities of the Imperium are hellish and cruel places, where all hope is lost and only pain and subservience remains.

The Imperium has no need for xenotits. As everyone knows (but can't say for fear of blam) the Sisters of Battle have a secret sect devoted entirely to producing porn.

Ynnari are just a baffling misstep. It perfectly encapsulates GW's total lack of forward planning and inability to even construct the most basic narrative. Before they existed, the Eldar were a doomed race, with the one hope being in their rebirth via Ynnead, but only when they were all dead. Now Yvraine is there, and I guess the Eldar don't have to all die, but lets not pretend that last Crone Sword is ever going to be found. The Eldar haven't moved forward at all, and I'd be willing to bet their entire faction's existence was just a pretext for Guilliman coming back. That and their rules are shit, Eldar haven't gotten new sculpts in decades save some units like Banshees, and it's basically impossible to remember they even exist.

Basically, the Aeldari have two paths ahead of them.

There is the all die path which will awaken Ynnnead.

Eldrad wanted to circumvent by using the crystal moon. He wanted to use a psychic flare to awaken Ynnead without the need for all the Aeldari dying. But he got Deathwatch'ed. It partially woke Ynnead who chose Yvraine as his servant.

Now Yvraine is the Opener of the Seventh Path which is about awakening Ynnead without all the Aeldari dying. They need the Cronewords to intact the ritual of Awakening

I think that the problem with GW authors working with eldar is that they are generally just too fucking stupid to properly write from the perspective of the Eldar.

Eldar are probably the worst written and most unlikable race in 40k. Every single one of them is a pathetic, wimpy, whiny, and arrogant douchebag. They spend so much time hyping themselves up but suffer the most humiliating defeats in the setting (like the one falcon driver who had her tank disabled with rocks wielded by children, and then dragged out and killed by having sticks and stones shoved up her ass and down her throat by those same children). Kinda ironic, because their fantasy counterparts are really badass and beloved by the fandom.

Eldar are supposed to be a smart, sophisticated race with precognition powers and an inhuman mindset and superhuman intelligence. It isn't easy to write races like from their perspective, and since this is wh40k, they are not allowed to outshine spuhs muhreens in any larger capacity.
Keeping the conflict and stakes small is probably one of the better ways to do.

Every GW villain is stupid evil. Like, they're so evil they'll waste their time torturing nobodies or kill themselves to be evil (like the time the Skaven tried to crash the moon into their world, with themselves on it). Since everyone in 40k is evil, everyone is stupid.

>Malus smiled. "Good. Now tell him wat I have to say." He stepped before the slave, staring down into his pain filled eyes. "Are you the one called Mathieu?" His retainer Arleth Vann translated, almost whispering the thickly-accented Bretonnian into the man's ear. Grunting with pain, the slave nodded.

>"Good. I have a rather amusing story to tell you, Mathieu. Yesterday, I stood at the entrance to the slaves hold and announced that, as a gesture of charity, I would release one of your number, unharmed, before we made port in Naggaroth. Do you remember?" A tumult of emotions blazed behind the slave's eyes, hope, fear and sadness, all tangled together. Again he nodded. "Excellent. I recall you all talked among yourselves, and in the end you chose a young girl. Slender and red-haired. Green eyes like eastern jade and sweet, pale skin. You know of whom I speak?"

>Tears welled in the slave's eyes. He struggled vainly to speak, despite Arleth Vann's terrible grip. "Of course you do." Malus smiled. "She was your betrothed, after all. Yes, she told me this, Mathieu. She fell to her knees before me and begged for you to be set free in her place. Because she loved you." He chuckled softly, thinking back to the scene. "I confess, I was astonished. She said I could do anything I wanted to her, so long as you went free. Anything." He leaned close to the slave, close enough to smell the fear-sweat staining his filthy clothes. "So I put her promise to the test."

>"Clar Karond was only a day away, and the crew deserved a reward for their labours, so I gave her to them. She entertained them for hours, even with their unsophisticated ways. Such screams... surely you heard them. They were exquisite."

>Malus paused for a moment as Arleth Vann struggled for the right translation, though by this point the slave's eyes had glazed over, fixed on some distant point only he could see. His muscular body trembled.

>"After the crew was spent, they returned her to me and I let my Lieutenants take their turn." Off to the side, Lhunara grinned and whispered something to Dolthaic, who smiled hungrily in return. "Again, she did not disappoint. Such pleasures, Mathieu. Such sweet skin. The blood sparkled across it like tiny rubies." Malus held out a token in his cupped hand, unfolding it gently and reverently. "You were such a lucky man, Mathieu. She was a gift fit for a prince. Here. I saved you her face. Would you like one last kiss before you go?"

>With a shriek of perfect anguish the slave surged to his feet, but Arleth Vann lashed out with his other hand and sunk his fingertips into the nerve juncture beneath the thick muscle of the human's upper right arm. The slave staggered, unmanned by blinding pain. His eyes were wide, and Malus could see the darkness there, spreading into the human's mind like a stain. The slave let out another despairing wail.

>"Wait, Mathieu. Listen. You haven't heard the really amusing part yet. By the time the crew was done with her she was begging, pleading to be set free instead of you. She cursed your name and renounced her love for you again and again. But of course, I had my oath to consider, I said I would let a slave go unharmed, you see, and that hardly applied to her any more. So in the end her love won out, and oh, how she hated it!" Malus threw back his head and laughed. "Enjoy your freedom, Mathieu." At once Arleth Vann changed his grip on the man, seizing him by the neck and the belt of his breeches, and with surprising strength the druchii picked the large man off the deck and threw him over the side. He hit the water with a loud, flat slap and disappeared into the freezing depths below.

Lmao what the fuck am I reading :DDDD

Unironically though, the Dark Eldar books were neat. They didn't depict the Dark Eldar as being "lol randum" evil or being evil just to be evil. Sure, they were depicted as arrogant, scheming dicks, with each lowly kabalite seeing himself as just a temporarily humbled Archon in the making, but the books had method to their madness, that made them pretty relatable, and almost tragic in a way. With each of the Dark Eldar characters being almost like in a mad crawling climb over each other just to survive, with no thought put to some overarching, grand scheme of their whole race, but just focused on ensuring that they themselves, do not have to end up facing She who thirsts.

Elves in fantasy have a lot of good traits to balance out their negatives, and there is much more variance in elf personalities than there are with eldar. Like most races in 40k, eldar really only have one personality type and it is a really unlikable one. Characterization in general isn't a strong point of 40k fiction. Everyone is so extreme and one-dimensional that they have no humanity to connect to. Like in fantasy, you have plenty of vignettes of people just being people, whereas in 40k, it's "BLOOD AND SKULLS FOR THE EMPEROR!!!"

>> No.77252172

This is how they treat eldar-human friendship in 40k:

>‘Malvian Craw,’ he said, holding out his hand to the aeldari. She looked down, staring at his hand for a moment with the usual unnerving focus and gravity he'd come to associate with her, a tight frown on her alluring face, then back up at Malvian.

>‘Feuran,’ she said, but did not take his hand.

>A third drop pod hit the ground, the doors thrown open as a Dreadnought barreled forth, each footfall shaking the ground. Then a fourth landed just a couple of dozen yards away, and another squad of Ultramarines poured out to join the battle. The last to depart the pod was a sergeant. His armor was gleaming and decorated with gold filigree over the pauldrons and chestplate, and his helmet was painted red. He carried a bolt pistol in one hand and a chugging chainsword in the other, and he stopped and stared directly at Malvian.

>Malvian shot to his feet as the Space Marine approached and snapped off a salute. ‘Sir,’ he said eagerly, staring up at the giant imposing figure. ‘Sergeant Craw of the 613th. This is…’

>The Adeptus Astartes sergeant raised his chainsword and sunk it deep into Feuran's side. It was not a quick or clean death, the sergeant almost lazily pulling the monomolecularly blade through her as if to draw out her torment. The rest of the world was drowned out by the roar of chainsword carving flesh and Faeran's screams, and in the damning silence that followed, Feuran’s two halves toppled sideways onto the grass.

>The Space Marine raised a hand to his helm. ‘Push back the xenos filth,’ he said into his vox. ‘No quarter; give them only suffering and death.’ The sergeant lingered for a few moments longer. ‘Pick up your weapon and join the fight, Guardsman.’ With that, he turned and strode away towards the forest where his brothers were attacking the greenskins.

>Malvian watched the sergeant go, then dropped to his knees beside Feuran’s corpse. All relief at being saved from the greenskins had vanished. His hands were trembling, not with fear, but with anger and grief. She was a xenos, true, but not like the orks. Nothing like the orks. She hadn’t deserved such an ignoble end.

>‘I’m sorry,’ he said, the tremble in his hands reaching his voice as well. ‘Thank you,’ he added, realizing he hadn’t told her before, ‘for saving my life.’

Note that she'd gone back to save the human and was injured in the process (which is why the marine killed her so easily).

Tbh, its one of the reasons why fantasy is just more fun then 40k. You just know that 40k always goes the cheapishly predictable rout of "and then, they killed them all and screamed the same 4 lines about hatred and xenos and mon-keigh and yadda yadda yadda." In WHB and AoS, you can play with all kind of interactions between men and elves.

Everything about AoS's human-elf interactions seems weird.

No. The most you get are ceasefires (followed shortly by one side backstabbing the other). The one ally the Imperium had, the squats, they backstabbed at a key moment so that the Tyranids could fuck them over. That's how diplomacy works in 40k, with both sides just trying to maneuver to backstab the other. If a comparison could be made to fantasy, it would be the "diplomacy" of the dark elves or skaven.

I think the "diplomatic" part of 40k exists for the most part within the empire, where it's actually kind of interesting.
Even though all of the imperial factions are on the same side the massive bureaucracy of the empire and competing interests and ideologies that exist within it create room for fun interplay.
This kind of makes sense because where in fantasy good humans only make up a few factions in 40k they're like half the setting.

>> No.77254684

I'd argue that even the interpolitics between different Empire provinces in fantasy is a lot more interesting than the interpolitics of the Imperium. 40k politics among the nobility is more Skaven like where everyone extremely petty and trying to backstab each other. Nobility carrying out systemic genocide on each others populations is common as fuck in the Imperium, and they only barely band together in the face of an outside threat. Again, there can only be war and all.
