Tyranids >>>>> Chaos
I don't want another Age of Shitmar thank you.
The Tyrranids are absolutely the worst thing about 40k lore. It's a ridiculously Invincible enemy that only exist when the writers remember them, but the worse thing is that they are just boring. The Orks at least have individual personalities and fun lore.
They also don't make sense to why the chaos gods don't lose their shit over them considering that the Tyrranids becoming dominant is one of the few ways for the gods to be wiped out.
It would have been actually nice if all the Imperium's enemies are forced to ally with each other because of how large, powerful, and overbearing it is.
You want to sell me on how powerful your fascist space empire is? Make it so that every other faction, from the civil (the Tau and the Eldar), to the ravenous (Orks, Necrons, Tyranids), and even the daemonic (Chaos Daemons/Astartes/cultists), are forced to ally with each other against the power of the Imperium. That way, the Imperium actually feels threatening to all these factions, since they would all be extinct if they didn't join forces against the Imperium.
Outside of oppressing its own overworked peons, the Imperium doesn't feel like it's that much of a threat, especially when every enemy they've made in the last 10K years have lasted to this day, and all the Imperium can do is hold them at bay, not eradicate them. That doesn't feel like a threat, that feels like Space Team Rocket-especially with how self-sabotaging they can be.
You can have a situation where the allied races are struggling to survive against the overwhelming assaults of the Imperium, while at the same time, they're all struggling with each other and trying hard not to shoot each other, because they each have their own differences and hatreds towards each other, which is a weakness the Imperium can use against them. That would make for some thrilling storytelling, instead of getting bored as fuck when the Tyranids show up, because we know how this story ends.
Hell, if that was the plot of some new Warhammer Plus show, I'd put in some good money to see that.
Maybe subscribers will get early access to Black Library books that will release in the future. Like say, some preview chapters, half a book, or perhaps the whole book, before the book hits store shelves?Now that you're saying that... I think I heard rumors that there was some access to books involved in this Warhammer+ thing as well. Maybe you need to pay extra (or should I say: you buy a bundle package that costs less than both prices combined).
We probably will just get the MCU again, wrapped up in the tinsel of 40K. I wouldn't be surprised if they have all the hero archetypes from the MCU, from the techno-nerd (Adeptus Mechanicus) to the strong guy (Adeptus Astartes) to the girl power (Adeptus Sororitas) and the comedic relief in the form of some Astra Militarum guys who keep surviving things that should have killed them.They are trying to be the new Marvel, not a bad idea given how much money it makes.
Let's just hope we'll get some decent popcorn cinema out of it, could be worse...
As much as we'd all want that, I don't think we'll see that, given how the MCU-style of movies doesn't leave much, even for ecchi-style softcore porn. You'll be lucky to see one Adeptus Sororita in a sexy pose, let alone lewd carpet-munching smut that belongs in a porn site.Also there better be lewd Adeptus Sororitas yuri smut involved somewhere at some point.
The Emperor of Ork-kind. And he's powered by all the Ork WAAAAAGHs in the galaxy. And I suppose he can rip Guilliman in half with his pinky-finger after ripping apart a Tyranid Hive Tyrant and wearing it as a belt.With no direct outside threat, Orks might at least start picking fights amongst themselves to see who's the WAAAAGHest. In the end, you'd have one massively powerful Ork megaboss... damn... I now imagine history repeating and then there's some Ork Megaboss on a throne of skulls with a giant bajonetted assault-rifle sticking out of his chest in a grim parody of the Emperor of Man on his golden throne.
