The End Times for 40K is coming!

Remember that little bit in the 6th edition Rule book that said there was a flaw in the Golden Throne? Well, that little hint has grown into a full blown story line.




Graham McNeil said he had to got approval from the powers (probably due to the success of the End Times in Warhammer) to bring a similar story to 40K.


And it will start with the Ultramarines!



He has to write Crimson King first, then Battle for Macragge a space marine battle novel, then on to...Guilliman. That is right...


The Primarch of the Ultramarines is coming back!

It will be part of the next Ultramarine story arc. He also said he is back for good, not just as a plot device to be put away when finished with.

Guilliman, Corax, Vulkan, The Khan, Russ, The Lion, Dorn. They all could come back.

The only truly dead ones are Ferrus Manus and Sanguinius.

Stop paniking guys

via Graham McNeil over on his site. http://graham-mcneill.com/
To quote the late, great Brian Glover, “This is rumour control, here are the facts…”
You may have seen a few rumours flying around t’interweb about the end times of 40k.
40k is NOT ending (well, beyond the mechanisms of the Golden Throne failing, the constant encroachments of alien invaders and the insidious corruption of Chaos…).

Context is everything…

This all came about after a conversation I had at the BL Weekender III, where I talked about things I’d LIKE to do in the next Ultramarines trilogy (not necessarily GETTING to do, but which I’d LIKE to do). One of the things I said was that I thought it’d be fun to bring Guilliman back, “probably not in a literal way, but in some form or another, and that such an event would, naturally, have further ramifications for the Chapter…”. I also said that I’d floated a bunch of ideas past the guys at editorial and had received a cautious, “That sounds pretty cool,” response.

And that’s it. That’s as far as any “progress” on this has gone.
So, get those panties unbunched, those knickers untwisted. Keep Calm and Keep Playing 40K.

See ya,
Graham

The 'ending' of the Imperium in 40k is one of those stories that could be told in suuuuuper sloooooow motion. The most rapid threat could probably be told using the 'nids, but even their eventual victory would take centuries to millenia to resolve. Even the complete disruption of the Golden Throne could result in stories spanning thousands of years. The Imperium is set up in such a way (storywise) that it would be very easy to have its crumble be very, very slow. Even in many worst-case scenarios.

I don't even see how end time could work in 40k. Fantasy is an evolving world so they have room to do End Times, 40k is a fixed point in time pretty much so not much could happen really.

"The great Jaghati Kahn steps from the warp portal buried deep under the Imperial Palace on Terra into the Throne Room, where the dessicated corpse of his Father now sits without spark on top of the Golden Throne. His brothers Gulliman and Russ step forward, their brows furled like hurricanes breaking on land. Gulliman is the first to speak, "Brother, grab a set of hip waders and your mightiest shit shovel. We have some work to do."

I could also see the End Times being more a time of transition away from the Imperim, with the Emperor gone and all the Primarchs having killed each other, as opposed to an Armageddon that wipes out the entire Human Race.

Hell, even an indication, any indication, that Gulliman isn't Dead Man Sitting in stasis would completely screw with the Ultramarines.

Even Guilliman coming back by itself, even if it's only 'in some form or another', would be a huge change. But they're not going to do the 40K End Times until, at the very least, the Horus Heresy is done.
