Default The Heresy, who would you side with?

So you've read the books, you've heard bits from both sides of the story. Who would you side with, Horus or the Emperor, or would you say pfft, i'm off to live with the Eldar...

The Emporer and loyal legions are obviously painted as the good guys and Horus and the traitor legions as the bad guys, I mean, the simple fact they are called the traitor legions shows the bias they recieve, but until the Heresy series came out we never really got a good sense of why it happened.

I have to admit, I've never liked what the Space Marines stood for. I never really felt they stood for mankind, and in my armies I generally played Imperial Guard. However, I never liked chaos either, there was too much misery and suffering that went along with choas.

The Heresy Series has only confirmed what I thought about the Emperor and the Space Marines. A brutal facist dictatorship subjegating mankind and exterminating those who dont fall in line with their plans. I did have some sympathy with the likes of Horus, Magnus, Konrad and even Lorgar but not so much with Fulgrim and Angron. However, the taint of chaos means I cannot side with them.

So for me, i'm off to live with the Eldar... what about you guys?

Divided really. For the sake of mankind probably the imperium, but if I was ambitious I would join chaos.

Imperium all the way. Not going to side with a force that can make me randomly grow a hairy ball sack on my back.

Off to live with the Eldar...Well some Corsairs anyway. Then I can have a bit of fun...

The Altus Hawks; Started, fluff partially written, army not yet legal... come on postal delivery! Unveiled way earlier than I intended because I'm horribly impatient...

Nurgly-ness of randomopolis; No fluff written, just using as GS sculpting testbed at the moment... fun though.

The Waiting Storm; My wonderful wife's newbie Eldar...

I have to quell the rage and pain in my head. Blood for the blood god!

Will follow Angron and the World Eaters into battle and glory.
