** Yes, you missed the missing Primarchs. What the heck, ''all'' the missing primarchs, including the dead loyalist ones. The souls of all the Imperial faithful have indeed been taken in by the Emperor, and will manifest themselves in this fight. Literature/CiaphasCain, [[GauntsGhosts Ibram Gaunt]], the whole nine yards.

** That means Warhammer 40k will end like this: The Imperium deposes the CorruptChurch (most possibly through the awakening of the Emperor or after a terrible Nid/necron-induced apocalypse, or we can do it as RealLife had done it, through the the discovery of an STC that describes the Scientific Method in all its glory), succumbs to an explosion of intellectualism and rediscovery, discovers a new warp drive that doesn't rely on passing through the Warp itself and is infinitely more reliable, and expands across the far reaches of outer space [[Franchise/StarTrek where no man has ever gone before]], ultimately reaching [[StarWars a galaxy far, far away where]] [[{{Eagleland}} a new republic is established]]. The [[YellowPeril Tau]] will probably have new advancements in technology, establish a powerful empire "For The Greater Good" and become powerful rivals or allies against humanity. Eldar would also try to make their own empire to rival or become allies with the Imperium and Tau. With the Age of Reason revived, more and powerful weapons are developed, and the Imperium, Eldar and Tau, with some Orks, would be allied against the 'Nids, Necrons, sundry other Eldritch horrors that besiege the galaxy on all sides, or other rogue Ork waaaaghs. Of course, there's no modern world if it wasn't for some vestigial remnants of the old Imperium that are lead and reunited by [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler a megalomaniac who is as powerful as the Emperor in terms of psychic powers and charisma, yet is an utter psychopath like a combination of Chaos and the past Imperial church]], [[WorldWarTwo which causes the final awesome battle that will decide the fate of the Milky Way Galaxy]].

*** There may be some truth in that. According to TheOtherWiki "Malal was at some point cast out or separated from the rest of the Chaos Gods. [...] Malal was perhaps the first of the Chaos Gods and seems to exist only to destroy the other gods and their followers. The Outcast God is both feared and loathed by the other Chaos Gods, and his power may parallel the collective power of the other Chaos Gods. [...] they were the chosen human champions/followers of Malal. Dedicated to seeking out and destroying the followers of the other Chaos Gods" Sound like anyone we know? * coughtheemperorcough*

** Are you nuts? With a jaw like that? You could shave with The Emperor's jawline. But yeah, WarHammer Fantasy being on a lost feudal world in 40,000 used to be canon. Games workshop apparently decided that keeping the two congruent was too difficult. [[UnsoundEffect Shrug.]]

*** Also, with the death of [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler the powerful chaos-corrupted megalomaniac]], two ways of life will emerge as dominant. One is the old secular economic system of Terra during the Dark Age of Technology, the other is the philosophy of the Greater Good, with the Tau having used the Great War to establish itself as a superpower. To seal permanent communication with all sentient life that exists, humanity created a [[TheInternet massive network]] (probably what the emperor originally intended, a Webway Network through the Warp). Meanwhile, after being exterminatused, the Eldar started to redirect their squicky ways to the creation of [[{{Anime}} new popular media]] (while the Dark Eldar opted for the [[{{Hentai}} alternative]]), and it proved too efficient, being popular throughout the said network. The rest of Chaos (except for Tzeentch) was ultimately sealed and split between two rival groups: [[Website/FourChan a squick-infested wretched Hive Mind in the Interstellar Network]], and [[ChurchOfHappyology a small cult of xenos]]. The "Greater Good" soon proved itself inefficient, the Emperor and the Chaos Gods start to lose their powers and popularity most likely due to [[RichardDawkins that person]], and meanwhile at the new republic in the galaxy far, far away Tzeentch took the form of [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama a black man]].....\\

**No, they're those Watcher in the Dark guys on the Rock! The Dark Angels gave them asylum, risking the wrath of the Inquisition. They know ''the Inquisition knows'' about the Fallen and put so much effort into hiding them that the Inquisition will never think to check the Watchers out.

Added DiffLines:

**The ideas of what the other races are actually like this be the case is highly amusing. Chaos is actually an army of rebels fighting against dictatorship. Daemons and Chaos Goes as are actually guardians of the warp trying to prevent it being misused. Tau are a incredibly kind race of unity and alliance. Eldar are a race of loving parental figures to the galaxy who wish to guide them to a better future. Necrons are a race of robotic warriors who are only trying to protect their tombs from invading space marines and guardsmen. Tyranids are peaceful aliens trying to protect their universe using a pre-emptive strike. Orks are a species that have been so prosecuted by the Empire that their entire culture has become warlike for their survival.
