    It would make no sense, you can't write the warp as a reflection of strong emotion and completely delete lust from it.

    However the process of robo-insemination is far too complex for the human mind!

    Slaanesh should stay.

    it is difficult. Slaanesh might go, but I am not convinced by the reasoning put forward. I started Warhammer when I was 12 and Slaanesh was perfectly easy to understand, and didn't pose any sort of issue in terms of models or background. I don't think it is unsuitable, nor do I think they have actually over emphasised the lust part, I think that is just what people have fixated on.

    Lord Tyrion captures Slaanesh
    New God take his/her place
    Retcon the birth of him/her in 40k to just being freed from captivity due to Eldar

    I'm not sure it'll be anything like that....

    Much more likely Slaanesh gets 'captured' then has a wee binge, scoffing so many Elves there's a shift in the general character of the God to becoming more Fey.

    If they got rid of slaanesh (which they haven't and probably won't) it would be because of what the immature fan base has turned slaanesh into, to most gamers, thanks to the 4chan/tg/ meme , slaanesh is a God of kinky sex and boobs and jokes about cocaine by people who've never taken coke in their lives.

    Slaanesh in most gamers eyes is no longer about excess but sex and honestly, if that stops some kids from being allowed to do the hobby, we're better off without it.

    Hopefully Slaanesh stays even if they find a way to filter out the ridiculously out of proportion sex and drugs aspect. The god's about all excess after all.

    There's no reason why a change in Age of Sigmar needs to mean a change in 40k, by the way, they're different (but possibly linked) universes. There's no need for a "retcon".

    All I can really add so far is that the guy at my local store commented on how he's seen "new slaanesh models" coming and that I can point out the excerpt quote only says that Tyrion left to capture Slaanesh, not that he had. We'll probably see a redesign for 'Nesh, less adulty.

    It's not like Slaanesh is even that big on sex, anyway. People only associate that because it's just the simplest thing. But the immaculate, prim and perfectly proper butler would worship to Slaanesh to be the Perfect Servant. The fat man in the age old Monty Python sketch who ate himself to explosion would be Slaanesh. Cenobites, the horror movie Leprechaun, Gremlins, the swordsmith Muramasa, all that reeks of Slaanesh.

    Honestly, Khorne is the poster boy for Chaos, hell, the Star has 8 points. But even he had a facelift. I wouldn't be surprised if what we have happen is that Tyrion shows up only to find out Slaanesh had done the unthinkable and slaked his appetite, and evolved into something new and more dangerous. Actually, I'd love that.

    Nah, this falls on the Studio, who's been treating Slaanesh this way since well before there were 4's to chan about.
