    I think it depends on how old timmy is, I was able to get a handle on the hammer fully at a very young age. probably 4th/5th grade, previously I was able to command a small sqaud of sqauts with somewhat limited efficiency. I remember buying my friends orks from his box set about then. How young could a kid get on age of sigmar really?

    people often have strange double standards for what "adults" and "children" do and dont do sometimes for the right reasons other times based on blind reaction.

    its also interesting to note that GW has never gone as full on with slaanesh as they potential could have (not saying thats a bad thing, there are lines that should not be crossed and 40ks violence is very tarantino esque as opposed to Stephen King, so in that sense GW has always had a modicum of censorship about the dark prince. But then that is a reflection of society I guess.

    Again, I ask, where is the option that says "Slaanesh is gone due to narrative plot reasons"?

    I first got into GW games some twenty-five years ago, and I remember keeping away from Slaanesh as a faction and hiding some of that material from my mother.

    But honestly, back in 1990, slaanesh was the god of poorly sculpted boobs and hair metal. There was nudity on many of the slaanesh daemon minis, and that really didn't exist outside of the slaanesh line. Also, their minis were the most likely to fit in at a Kiss concert.

    I think that it was in the late '90s that they moved him towards the "god of excess" idea that people here are all nostalgic about, and made the keeper of secrets' nudity into something that is much harder to recognize as nudity at all.

    But if you're feeling like you need a line of disturbing nude sculpts- well the Kingdom Death plastic line is supposed to be releasing sometime late this year.
