End Times for 40K?




End time for 40K is coming!

At the recent Black Library Weekender, some interesting things came up.  The most significant of which was vastly overlooked.  The End Times for 40K is coming.  Remember that little bit in the 6th edition Rule book that said there was a flaw in the Golden Throne?  Well, that little hint has grown into a full blown story line.

Graham McNeil said he had to got approval from the powers (probably due to the success of the End Times in Warhammer) to bring a similar story to 40K.  And it will start with the Ultramarines.

He has to write Crimson King first, then Battle for Macragge a space marine battle novel, then on to...Guilliman. That is right, the Primarch of the Ultramarines is coming back!   It will be part of the next Ultramarine story arc. He also said he is back for good, not just as a plot device to be put away when finished with.

Hmmmmm........

I for one, cannot wait to see most of the good guy Primarchs come back.

Is there a source link for that info?

I'm not so sure he'd be seen as the "good guy" by the High Lords or Inquisition of the 41st Millennium. Fascinating stuff...

Russ back from the eye of terror with the XIII company?.....i'll get that book!!

Loken said...

I got confirmation of this from inside GW.

Could be amazing. Could be terrible.

What I'm quite interested in is what happens to Fantasy after the las End Times book? New (fewer) army books for all based on the new world order? A continuing story line? Or a stagnant one again (whilst we all catch our breath).

I'm a bit excited by it all :).

And see my new blog today. I think the term "End Times" isn't meant that 40K is ending, it is merely what is stated in the fluff, that basically, the shit is hitting the fan for the human race towards the close of the 41st Millennium, and the Primarchs might be coming back to deal with it!

Isn't it interesting how fast Graham came out with a denial? Where as the official GW policy is to ignore rumors!

John Butters said...

Graham McNeill is not GW, or employed by them, or a spokesman for them. Not any more than George R. R. Martin is for Bantam Books.

He's just an author. He makes money on royalties from his books. Nothing more.

Inversely, he also wouldn't know anything about future plans inside GW for their game or miniatures.

Loken said...

But he would know what he is writing about. And if GW tells him to deny the rumor, you can sure bet he will.

John Butters said...

Read Graham's blog post again. GW isn't telling him what to write about. He is pitching proposals to GW (that is, Black Library, not the "game designers" or the "suits" in charge of the games/products), and they probably run it through some loops internally, before green-lighting it or not.

He's just a dude who had a crazy idea about Guilliman, which he floated on the Weekender. Games Workshop probably didn't even know about it, till you posted about it.
