I would personally like to see some sort of advancement, but then all i care about is the fluff and of course advancing the plot in any significant way would no doubt require alot of changes on the table aswell, but obviously you can't change all the armies in one go, so its difficult to impliment. But sure, i would definely love to see some advancement, its half the reason i love LordLucans 50/60k fanfic series.

The background can still be easily fleshed out at the same time aswell, Star Wars has done it just find, as has WoW.

I used to be for advancement but then I realized there is possibly an infinite number of things they can do with the 40k timeline.

Introducing a new xenos threat like the Slaughth for example or shedding some light on the halo/ghoul stars would be something fresh I think.

I am not sure about advancement but I am always going to advocate the revival of world wide campaigns with results that stem from it.

Maybe not as large as the 13th black crusade was but definitely bigger than Medusa 5.

These sort of campaigns can fill in the gaps between the heresy years and the current timeline.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

I really want some elements of the plot wrapped up, like the discovery of the long lost Primarchs (especially Leman Russ. I want him to beat the crap out of that red Thousand Sons bloke.) Or the "could be" return of El Jackson fella from the Dark Angles as well as the hunts for the Unforgiven. Or the recovery of Jaghtai Khan, from the Dark Eldar Webway...

And what about the Emperor, will they scower the filing cabinets for the "ancient knowledge" needed to fix the Golden Thrown, or attempt to build a new one?

Theres so much stuff to wrap up! and I wish GW would continue these stories, instead of making up new ones every codex! I really think they should start something like a Hammer Wiki, or Lexacanum that updates all the time so we can all know What Happens Next!

Anyway GW will never progress the "setting" fluff and battles and campaigns will happen but in the end it will always be nearly the year 40000 give or take, the imperium of man will always be in decline, the eldar will be dying out,the Orks will be everywhere but never organised enough,Nids will eat everything but get stopped by an impossible alliance,chaos will do chaosy things,but apart from the possibility of a new race at some point the story will stay the same as it has for 25 years,because for every successive generation that joins the hobby the story is current and new
And this

If you really want the story to advance then I'm sorry but you're playing the wrong game.

If you are a child of anything but the 2000s you will remember the 'Build your own adventure' books.

40k is like that, but with figures.

The End.
