Following Serpion5's advice, cos I did a boo boo in his thread, sorry mate!
After the Thread which shall not be named, anyone want to let us in on some really stupid theories they have heard in relation to 40k?
No flaming or trolling please, it's just a bit of fun to see what stupid things people have come up with in the past.

To get the ball rolling when I was new to the hobby, way back in the day I had a friend who was convinced that Harlequins were the manifestation of the fifth Chaos God, the Solitaire!
Where this theory came from I never found out, he never backed it up with anything but he was convinced it was real.


-EDIT-
Sorry, it was CKCrawfords thread, sorry to you too mate!

Norm, it was not my thread you were boobooing, but I didn`t think it was a good idea anyway.

A dedicated thread sounded... safer shall we say?

One of the best crazy theories I have heard was in regards to the gods of the warp. It actually sounded credible the first time I heard it, but knowing what I do now I can say it is false.

Khaine = Khorne = Gork ... Apparently all the same guy by different races.

Cegorach = Tzeentch = Mork ... And here again.

For a while, I assumed that this made sense. But after reading a few pieces of fluff in the CD codex, it can`t be true, because these gods interact with each other.

It may be retcon, or it may be misunderstanding. Or maybe Khorne and Tzeentch have a few big fake heads stashed somewhere for other races. :biggrin:

A crazy one I heard recently was that Asuryan escaped being killed by Slaanesh and became the being we know as the Emperor (despite the fact the Emperor had been around for close to 40,000 years before Slaanesh appeared), also the fact that the C'tan essentially run everything and that 2 of the slain Primarchs (Ferrus Manus and Konrad Curze) are not only still alive but are the avatars for 2 of the star gods.

The guy was quite condescending about his theories stating that only those people who'd read all 40k material and could read between the lines would be able to realise the same 'truths' he'd come to believe, in the end though it was just funny because he was so delusional despite no actual evidence or support.

I know someone who believes that the emperor was killed by Horus, so the man on the golden throne is actually Horus, and the CSMs are all the loyalists which is why they say death to the false emperor. I have no idea where he got it from

Just in case someone missed it.

one of my former gaming mates used to field a mixed army of nids, marines, eldar and guardsmen claiming that he had read an article in WD about a mixed force called the merge marines. Apparently they were an allied army that could choose forces from any codex to represent the fact that they stood against everything the other races stood for....they were allied together to try and bring peace to the galaxy.

this was back in second edition and i now realise he just wanted models from a massive selection of armies...all painted the same yellow and blue colour scheme though.

You want crazy? The Inquisitorial Representative sitting on the High Lords of Terra, along with many influential Inquisitor-Lords and Grandmasters (Caidin, etc.) are in fact Squats. It explains how they disappeared.

Its cool:victory:

I wouldn't say that these are looney persae, but I'd say the following kind of made my brain move a bit.

1. The wounds on Sanguinus in the famous picture of the battle between Horus and the Emperor. Though its just an art piece, if you actually look at the wounds, and you were a doctor you'd think the Emperor was the one that killed Sanguinus.

2. Though it has been stated by GW that fantasy and 40k are two different worlds I always believed that somehow Sigmar was one of the lost primarchs. Hey... I believe others believe this too, so if I were to driven to mad house, I wouldn't be alone.

3. Arguleon Veq is going to punch chaos in the balls. My little theory. :laugh:

4. Some people actually think Dorn and Guilliman are still alive...

5. I heard that Horus' soul is slowly regaining its strength in the warp and some other crazy shit I saw in another website long ago. Anyhow this theory has it hes comming back... somehow...

Ultramarines are actually the Alpha Legion, which proves their status of being masters at misdirection and deception. The real Ultramarines have been cursed by Ahriman to roam the planets within the Eye of Terror, forever disoriented and lost. Their recent combat losses have been a ruse in order to get closer to Terra so they can release the Daemon of Mars, who is not actually the Void Dragon, but a chaos mechaspawn.
Amidoinitrite?

Underneath Mars is not the Void Dragon, but Vance Stubbs' secret stash of 100 Baneblades. He just forgot where he put them, that's all.

Indrick Boreale was reincarnated shortly after the Kaurava campaign, taking the form of Abbadon's arms in the final Chaos Rising cinematic.

This would actually explain why Guilleman is not listed as a Primarch in the earliest editions of the fluff...

*ducks*
