They literally take the worst parts of some of the most horrific governments of human history and merge them.

I would gladly die to fight against an institution as corrupt as that.
This is talking about 30K time period, not 40K. Pre-Heresy during the Great Crusade. Otherwise, you have a good point.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

Right, but the situation assumes we know how it will turn out.

Which is why you have the chance to warn the Imperium, or not.
Although it would be impossible to have any credibility, or evidence.

Seeing as I have all 4 Chaos symbols tattooed on my arms, I would most likely not be a very good candidate to support the Imperium. They would burn me at the stake at the first sign of my arms.

That being said, if the Imperium visited earth and we took for granted that the fiction was based on the knowledge of them existing, but not necessarily being true lore, I would welcome them. While their approaches are less appealing, I would rather see the world die united under one flag than it tearing itself apart over contradicting beliefs and political systems that it is currently.

In short; I'm so embarrassed at our current world, that I would gladly surrender it to a force that could colonize the vastness of our universe as The Imperium has. If nothing else, we would get our view expanded by the vastness of other worlds and maybe put some perspective into the minds of the folks that believe we are the center of the universe and deserve to be treated as such.

Would I turn to Chaos in the long run? Honestly, most likely. But that's a tale for another time.

Hmmmm, a lifetime of pointless servitude in a relentless unending faceless grind for a pitiless, monolithic, empire.

Or

Fun and excitement branching out on your own, in a challenging, no hold barred plunge into insanity or glory, with dental care.

Tricky one.

I'll be there already when you decide to rock up, bring pie.

Take a huge loan out from the first loan shark you can find and get them laser removed! The loan will be completely irrelevant soon enough, so don't worry about that.

This is a topic for another thread really. But the likely reality isn't the freedom and glory people always assume supporting Chaos will get you. The chances are you're going to be sacrificed, become a thrall that's terrified of your overlords and master and utterly inconsequential to them, or of course, become a spawn.

The people that seem to think Slannesh is a good idea baffle me the most though. 'Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll' yeah, good luck with the reality of that choice!

Pfft, servitude and thralldom is for weak willed fools! Obviously the ruinous powers will recognise the truly worthy, and tell my boss to stuff it where the sun don't shine.

I was actually thinking about this the other day. I think you could potentially get word about the HH to higher ups, but not if you ran in screaming "Horus is a traitor! Horus is a traitor!". Presumably if you could prove that the intel you had was correct about some things the higher ups would be more inclined to believe the more outlandish things. Like "Hey, I know the names of every Primarch and the legions and all these battles. Aren't you curious to know how? Well, let me show you this info. By the way, don't let Horus go to Davin. Or Fulgrim to Laer. And don't bomb Monarchia. Trust me, you'll thank me later. Oh, and kill Erebus, Kor Pheron, Typhon and Fabius Bile. Again, you'll thank me."

It also depends on when in the timeline you catch the Imperium. Maybe the Emperor is still knocking around on the front line. Maybe Monarchia hasn't been destroyed. Maybe Horus hasn't gone to Davin yet. But if, say, the Word Bearers have already turned and they show up to help subjugate Earth, ain't no way the HH is getting stopped.

As for me, join the winning side. The Imperium will win eventually. I'm just hoping my education is enough to make me useful enough to warrant some form of status in the new regime. Realistically it's the same plan I have for when China and Russia get board and take over the world. It's not the best plan I'll admit but it's the only one I've got!

Buy lots of GW shares.

Anyway I think I will be too inconsequential to affect the future in anyway, I will be just minding my own business rather than screaming about heresy and stuff. I am pretty sure that one way or another they will come to know about GW.

I will probably try to get a job in one of the civilian fleet in order to travel the stars.
