Why isn't there any Chaos Imperial Guard?

Post by Fniff on Tue Mar 08, 2011 12:07 am

I was discussing this with my brother a moment ago, and he said that Chaos Space Marines have to be exposed to the warp to join in on Chaos, and that the Imperial Guard wouldn't be able to take it. However, I said that doesn't make sense, since you don't have to be even see the warp to be a Chaos Space Marine, you just have to be tempted by anything related to Chaos. So why isn't there any Chaos Imperial Guard units? You might say Cultists are Imperial Guards who went over to the other side, but they didn't! They were just, as in the name, members of a cult.

So, where are all the Imperial Guard coerced into serving the dark gods? I mean, even the Space Marines are guilty of succumbing to Chaos, hell, even the Sisters Of Battle have done it a few times! Are they just too weak for the Dark Gods? What about Nurgle or Slaanesh? They don't mind having a bit of cannon fodder. Apart from Khrone, the Imperial Guard are just perfect! Why isn't there any?

Xandus, before you call me out on whatever I said about Chaos Marines or whatever, because it's probably untrue, I basically know nothing about Warhammer past Dawn of War. They might have to be exposed to the warp, I don't know.

Carry on.

Yeah, they do. That's actually pretty interesting. Also, I wonder how Mercenaries exist in the Imperium.

Most Imperial mercs are probably gang members who decide that they wanted to make some better money by fighting for Rogue traders, Inqusitiors and the lot.

You know, GW really needs to give the Lost and the Damned their own Codex. These guys make of 95% of Chaos' armies and are much more commonly fought than Chaos marines. Also, they're a combination of my two favourite factions and have access to mutants, beastmen, pirates and other cool things which should be getting more attention. If we can have Space marines alongside Imperial guardsmen, why can't we have Chaos marines alongside Chaos guardsmen?

As far as I know renegade and chaos IG are about as common as orks in terms of foes.

Also, Damn you Xandus, I was the 40k nerd on here before you came strutting in with your encyclopedic knowledge of the 40k universe.

When I'm bored I like to read the Lexicanum for fun or read 40k posts on /tg/. Razz

Hmm. I commonly attempt to make Warhammer 40k fanfiction. I smell a friendship.

Speaking of Warhammer fanfiction, I've had quite a few interesting ideas for some 40k fanfics but I've yet to start writing them down.

I have too. One involves Chaos, Necrons and Tyranids teleporting to modern day Earth along with some Imperial Guard. At the end, 75% of humanity is dead! I have written a general outline, but nuthin' much has been done.

Sounds like a party.

One of my stories is about a humorous 14th Black Crusade, inspired by a thread on /tg/. It begins with Abaddon getting kicked him and his forces of Cadia after making a team-rocket intro, then trying to rally together the traitor marines once more. The other champions either try to usurp him or accidentally mess up his plans. At the end, Eliphas becomes the new Warmaster just in time to witness Creed infiltrating the entire planet Cadia next to the Chaos fleet.

Another story involves a party-loving, loose Ultramarine who would make Guilliman roll in his shrine and a typical rule abiding, serious Blood Angel pretty boy going on a series of adventures together. Other characters include a heresy-loathing rageaholic Chaplain, a smug Chaos Sorcerer, a stupid yet mighty pony-loving Berzerker, a typical Dark Eldar, a pacifist Noise marine who just wants to have a good time, a SIster of Battle love interest, an unfortunate Chaos Lord, Captain Sicarius, Warmaster Abaddon and Alpharius.

Sounds interesting. I am actually writing up some advertisements for the Imperial Guard. One of the slogans is "Remember, if it's the Imperial Guard, you know it's quality over quantity.".

I'm quite fond of writing fluff and background for whatever army interest me at the moment.
