Default Guilliman Alive? 40k End of Times?

Just was looking through Facebook, and heard Graham McNeill is going to the US. Also a little a bit about his newer projects. One being a potential End of Times for 40k. Something to do with the failure of the Golden Throne which was something in 6th and 7th edition. Apparently, McNeill has plans with Gillian being a big factor.

Not sure what to think about the 40k End of Times. I feel that after seeing a bit with what happened in Fantasy, I just don't think there's a way Chaos doesn't win. Especially if Khorne pops up and starts slicing and dicing. What a cheater.

Seems like old news though. So forgive me if you go, no shit.

if there is a 40K end times its gonna go between Chaos, the Orks and Tyranids. I don't think that its a clear cut case that Chaos would win.

I kind of disagree. Unless the Necrons have some tricks up their sleeve. There are infinite amount of daemons and power from the Chaos Gods. And The Fantasy End of Times has had the chaos gods literally intervene. Khorne literally used his axe!!!

The End of Times definitely puts a different perspective of the Chaos Gods in my mind. The original thought about Chaos is that they care little for the affairs of mortals. However, I fee like that coming from Chaos Codexes was a way to stir fans into one direction of thinking. Almost a narrative created by the Chaos Gods to basically describe themselves through the codexes. It seems quite evident that they do indeed care A LOT about the mortal realm.

I'm also tired of this autocorrect. All my Khornes are being turned into thrones. Its bullshit.

you are right about the unlimited supply of Daemons, however for every ork that dies there will be a dozen more. the more orks die the more spores spread across planets. basicly there is a near limitless supply of orks as well.

and there is no indication that there is a limit to the amount of armies and creatures the Tyranids can bring forth from beyond known space.

There's been a lot of stuff thrown out in recent years regarding the 40k Endtimes. I don't think it'll be a straightforward win for Chaos. The missing primarchs returning could swing it for the Imperium, the Laughing God might just pull off whatever it is he's planning, all the remaining tomb worlds might awaken together, Ghazkull and his new Galactic wide teleporter might raise the biggest Waaagh ever seen, and the Emperor alone knows how many hive fleets are closing in on the galaxy.

Khorne will cut Tzeentchs head off and laugh "you never saw that coming". Nurgle will discover breath mints and soap and be a hit with the ladies and slaanesh will join the priesthood and the galaxy all lives happy ever after

hmn on mcNeils own blog he talks about the move to LA to work for a game company and toning down (but not quitting) on his work for the Black Library. So not sure how much we should expect from this.

Tyranids and CHaos are the most pressing threats to the galaxy at large right now.

I never once bought intothe possibility that orks could be a contender, and the necrons are no longer on the galactic threat scale either. I don't doubt both these races will play an important role, but they won't be fighting alone like the two big bads will.

Is there a source that says they're running from something? I was under the impression there was almost no background to their entrance into the 40k galaxy.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
