Thats the thing that I'm confused about. I know of the "Enslavers" from WD but also in the Necron history it mentions "The Enslaver Plague"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necrons#The_Enslavers

Now this portion of it is poorely worded. Do they mean that the Enslavers are the Chaos Gods or the Enslavers are tools of the Chaos Gods.

yea it says they later became the chaos gods but, when they were fighting the c'tans and necrons it was something else.

I think it'd be cool to see a race kinda like the predators, totally advanced tech, excellent camo and stealth systems and perfect hunters. Now they'd be hard to beat if they did it right!!!

I also really wanna see the ADmech finally come to the tt as well as dwarves in the guise of demiurgs and exodites, but i also wanna see what they can do with the hrud, the sluaghs (mentioned in the dark heresy gm's kit) and the xenarchs chaos worshipping aliens that utilise bioelectric technology.
Now that i think of it the races we have are too few and they really should start releasing some new races soon, i believe the ideal number would be around 20 races there are plenty of things they can flesh out from the fluff and develop into new races, they just have to find a way to support more miniature ranges, maybe discontinue lord of the rings and focus more on 40K and fantasy.

I'd like to see Insectoids. Not 'Nids, but actual bug-folk.

No, the Vespids don't count.

For a change, I'd like bug-men WITHOUT a hive hierarchy. Give them chitinous carapaces for a good armor save (the game could do with more 4+ base save units- we don't see very many around here), squad leaders with what are effectively lightning claws, maybe the army doesn't include a single model that moves as base infantry- they're all jump infantry, beasts, or monstrous creatures. Insanely good initiative, high number of attacks, good weapon skill- but no power fist analogues and "only" Strength 4 for the infantry-base models.

To balance this insane speed, they'd have the worst shooting capabilities the game can provide- possibly none at all at the troop level, just for the hell of it.

Of course, this reads a lot like Genestealers with Extended Carapace

Honestly, any race I could think of adding is either already in the fluff and has been passed over, or wouldn't really fit.

After all, the 40K-verse is already pretty damn crowded.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

I thought up some thing a few weeks ago and posted it here:https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...ad.php?t=11313

Just to be short and sweet, they are called the Kelborn (or remanents of), and it is basically the remainding army of a galactic empire crushed by the tyranids, that were sent here to atempt to defeat all nids.
It is a machine army commanded by by "artificial inteligence" and anciant cyborgs (perversion of the machine spirit anyone?), and a couple other things...thought I will right that down on my forum if i get replies.
