>>13819046 >Is /m/ essentially Chaos? Yes. >If so who represents what factions/warbrands? Real robot fans are Khorne Daemonkin, super robot fans are Slaanesh Daemonkin, shonen fans are Nurgle Daemonkin, and seinen fans are Tzeentch Daemonkin.
Gundam fans = World Eaters VOTOMS fans = Death Guard Macross fans = Thousand Suns Patlabor fans = Emperor's Children Valvragers = Word Bearers Stick to x people = Night Lords x is worst ever people = Alpha Legion Forumfags = Iron Warriors Literally everyone else = Black Legion
Also /tg/. So let me tell you, you're dealing with 40kid up there, in that opening post.
The thing you have to understand about 40k fans is the game they play. The rules of 40k have always been clunky as shit and it has never been balanced between sometimes you are playing two armies against each other that literally are not even using the same edition of the rules to fight each other. Every time they come out with new lore, its always worse than the lore it is replacing, but that's okay because 40k lore contradicts itself so frequently that everything is equally (non) canon, and the plot only advances in reverse. Everyone has their own head canon and no one agrees with anyone else's head canon and worse yet both sides of any given argument have passages from the book they can quote that say they are right and the other guy is wrong.
40kids don't just tolerate this level of abysmal quality, they enjoy it. Because some people can be amused simply by things being xboxhuge and the spaceships have skulls on them. This is the hobby that they willingly spend a thousand dollars on in order to get a few dozen plastic toys that are not even assembled or painted, and don't even hold their value because in a few years the rules will change and those models will be worthless in play now. Because that's how Games Workshop makes money.
Its a con, its not even a clever con, and even the players agree that they are being fucked sideways in return they are getting shit quality product. But they DONT STOP BUYING because they are already in too deep.
>>13822508 There is no western /m/, because there is no western mecha. And to anyone trying to shoehorn battletech or robotech or other regurgitated scraps of real mecha culture, please grow up.
Warhammer is not mecha, nor is starship troopers, or any other known western-sourced robot scifi that I know of. They are still all inherently better than the attempted thefts that the "western mecha" are.
>>13822683 I'm not even sure most Warhammer "fans" even play tabletop Warhammer. Like anon >>13822633 said, players are on all sorts of milestone of their own. The PC games, accessible fluff and inspiring presence of the tabletop seems to hold half the fans. Most of the people I've met are buying models are buying to paint and flip them. The tabletop gameplay dogma is shit, their attempts to fix it are shit. Warhammer Fantasy gameplay has gone so far down in sales and quality they literally rebooted the whole field. 40K is probably going to hit a similar reboot switch if A: tabletop interest slides as it has or B: A PC based game brings along so many new fans they'll change course to sell more to them.
