    I'm going to leave this pic here, not looking good for Slannesh.

    Where's the option that Slaanesh is gone because it's part of a story plot?

    That'd make some sense, but that isn't the Horned Rat's symbol. Unless they changed it!

    apparently its used for him in End Times. But im seeing conflicting reports. Not sure if thats the way GW is going, but its a bad direction in my opinion


    EDIT: Tell you what though, Im going to finish that Emp Children army im working on and the whole thing is going to be an over the top tribute to 80's metal art and a screw you to GW now for sure

    I don't remember seeing the Horned Rat represented with a new rune in End Times - his sigil is the well-beloved Skaven triskele that's on everything skaven. It could be a redesign. I mean, they *are* horns!

    There were always four chaos gods- even before the fall of the Eldar and birth of Slaanesh.

    Slaanesh was born when the forth god of Chaos disappeared from the warp. This coincides precisely with the birth of the Emperor (and the stabilization of the warp, allowing the Emperor to conquer what is not the Imperium).

    So- the forth chaos god was the Emperor once. I'm sure the seat will be filled again.

    I would have to agree with you there, the chaos gods embodied something specific. Khorne, Nurgle, Tzeentch and Slaanesh all fit into the chaos quartet. They are like colour theory, different to each other yet weirdly complimentary. Khorne represents war, Nurgle is decay, Tzeentch is change and Slaanesh is excess. They work well as the four facets of chaos. Replacing Slaanesh with the horned rat ? What as a deity does he represent ?

    no, there were always 4 chaos gods because the warp is timeless.

    As such Slaanesh has both always existed and never existed.

    Thats GW fluff directly from the liber chaotica
