Motivation of Chaos

So I like to deeply analyze things, unhealthy I know.

But I was thinking about the servants of chaos and their motivations recently. It’s a constant struggle for rulership and power, but humans(more so men) are motivated by creating a legacy. However the followers of chaos are not remembered. Now by the Imperium and others races outside the immaterium they are remembered, but inside? The only place I imagine one legacy is truly kept is in Tzeentchs library, but even then the names are forgotten and is just a footnote really.

That being said, all these mortals desperately via for favor and power from their gods, but no one really remembers their names. There isn’t much care for the dead other than claiming they are weak.

So knowing all of that, could one say that true devotees of the chaos gods are... selfless?

Leaving chaos undivided followers out of this discussion, because well they definitely don’t do it for the gods.

The Fall of Chaos in 8th Edition

Here's an argument that the Chaos faction in 8th Edition has been nerfed to hell and is no longer well-balanced. What do you Hammerers think? Are Chaos' glory days in 8th Edition over or is the faction still able to pull its weight as the Big Bad?

My first kill team set

(This is my first post, so sorry if I’m not doing it right). This is what I have done so far on my boxed kill team set. I have completely painted the front of the big ruin, and I’m don with everything on the sides except for the weathering effects. I have also finished the skitarri included. I made 5 rangers and five vanguard. How does my paint job look, both for the terrain and for the skitarri? Any ideas for improving it. I appreciate any advice.

The large ruin:

As a sci-fi fan

So this is a weird post as it’s a bit more sci-fi in general rather than just 40k but am I the only one who feels as though with a lot of sci-fi it’s just cliches now with like good guys evil empire etc and in other genres as well we have that problem
But sticking to sci-fi one of the reasons I absolutely adore 40k is the constant question of morality with things especially with chaos but I really feel like no other sci-fi try’s anymore like for example I LOVE Stargate amazing series go watch it if you haven’t but even in that it’s still like evil empire humans good alien bad does anyone else feel like we just have a lot of Mary Sues in sci-fi nowadays or is it just me?

Guardsmen

You think its a little weird how under equipped the guards are? I understand how the population is so insanely high they need to cut down on some things like producing that much armour but you think if they can mass produce knights and tanks they might be able to put in some time making weapons that actually work.

Ideas

So thinking once my death guard are done (about half way through now) I might do a more specialised imperial guard army focusing on mechanized and long range fire power. For local friendly games at least do you reckon these would look good? I'm thinking they could be my solar guard from my custom planet with a slightly different paint scheme.

Im new

Hello guys im new and im thinking if starting 40k collection. But there is one problem. There im italy is notthing cheap. 5 tyranid models 8 euros, crisis battlesuits 40€. For the same price i can buy some 40k videogames (more than one i think)

Itz legal to make some homemade models with a 3D printer and buying only the codex?

My first painting.

Ladies and gents, as I was on a cleaning venture for some reason close to 9pm I rummaged through the endless piles of bags of useless things the Missus and her twin keep in our home to stumble across my old Warhammer kit of mixed Imperial Guard, Black Legion and Lizard Men figures. This was my first attempt at painting I had done about 14 years ago.

You may all rush to congratulate my impatient 11 year old past self on a marvellous job.

Gene seed Question

I was looking at the gene seed of the world eaters legion and it says they have a defect that from the beginning if they dont spill blood they'll go in to a busker mode. Could it be that the emperor pout those into their gene seed?

Your Opinions About Recasts

I recently talked with some Chinese seller(which probably sells recasts as the price was way too cheap.)about buying a set of 4 marines and a Librarian (the picture below).As kind of like a starter set which i can screw up the painting etc. While I am aware Recasting is kinda drops to the exploitation of an ip,Is it... I guess somewhat acceptable to buy Recasts(since the seller doesnt admit that if it is a recast or not) just for collection-Learning Purposes. Did you ever bought an item that turned out to be a recast?If so how can you tell them apart from the Gw original products?How are they quality and detail wise?

World Eaters

Are there any world eater players that are willing to share pictures of their models?

I’m thinking of painting one of my new marines in their old legion colors and wanted some inspiration.

Thanks ahead of time👍🏼👍🏼
