    thats the epitome of the company forum, fan suggestions are already in consideration and it only launched a few weeks ago.

    Ok so what we first need to do is get a summary of what is happening (or major event that has recently happened) in the current 40k universe.

    Last massive campaign was the Medusa V campaign (I believe the forces of Chaos were defeated), but I'm not so sure about the ending for that specifically. The latest threat is the invasion of the 3 hive fleets Behemoth, Kraken and Leviathan.

    Anyone else got some input to add as to the current problems?

    Yea, I've not bought any WD's recently either. Have no clue what the hell the most present state of the 40k is. I will be visiting a fellow 40k fan tomorrow, so I'll probably ask him lol

    Yea, that too. Although the 3 Tryanid Hive Fleets heading towards Terra is a good situation to have in terms of storyline.

    I think this the better option - most people know the general idea of 40K - its dark, there is lots of war, its got aliens, there is lots of war, corruption and strange religions - oh and did I mention there is war!

    It lets you be free to build your own conditions and situation

    Yes but it would be nice to have a proper setting. You can't just ignore important pieces of 40k history. That is why I am asking as to where we should start.

    Right so I've recently come across some information that in the 5th edition for 40k the Imperium is supposed to fall.

    Now I think this gives us a good opportunity to utilise such a situation. With the fall of the Imperium and undoubtedly some sort of Ghost Imperium being present there will be a massive ripple effect across the galaxy.

    It frees up many of the Adeptus Astartes but unfortunately I do not know what will happen to the Imperial Guard. Hopefully people can suggest something as to what happens to them.
