PiotrW Posted March 24, 2021 Share Posted March 24, 2021 The subject of Slaaneshi philosophy, army concepts etc. really interests me - and I didn't want to keep hijacking the main Hedonites Discussion thread. So, I thought I'll continue the discussion in a separate thread... @Yoid @CeleFAZE @ssetr @TheArborealWalrus @Enoby thank you for sharing your concepts! All of them are inspirational. I was wondering: if Slaanesh is about all kinds of excess, could there a Slaaneshi cult based on piety? I can kind of see a group of ascetics moving toward more and more fanatical practices, without realizing they are actually getting a lot of pleasure from all the self-mortification and intense prayers. Not sure how this group would move toward summoning daemons that ride chariots that cut people into ribbons, though... In general, my vision of a Hedonites army is pretty basic: that of a weird-scented horde full of sensual bodies, teeth, pincers and blades, traversing the land in a fast-moving cavalcade and shredding everything in their path. Not sure how to connect with that emotionally, though... (I have the same problem with WH40K's Deathguard. I like them and I'm slowly building a joint "normal" Chaos Marines / Deathguard army there. Their new codex is... very atmospheric with all these mentions of half-rotten Marines, clouds of flies etc. But I can't actually come up with potential personalities for them - how could anyone with even a portion of a brain left actually worship Nurgle..?) 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
