Post Warhammer 50k?
With forge world making 30k heresy era models it's got me thinking recently, after all these editions of 40k how do people think they would progress in new editions? Would anyone think it cool to make a jump to 50k? And if so how do you think they would progress the story? Scope for new armies, serious re defining of existing armies.
What's people's thoughts?

I don't think so. From what I gather, the 40k fluff assumes that it is very likely that, within the near future of 40k, mere centuries or even decades, there shall be no imperium. There may not even be a Galaxy or universe as we know it thanks to Chaos and the Warp. It's that precipice which defines the fluff.

Mmm hmm... Mankind can't teeter on the brink of annihilation for millenia...

We save that for the eldar.

Yea but that could make for some awesome armies and re modelling of existing ones, a imperium beaten back, marines salvaging what they can, IG in battered vehicles. Tau in ascendancy with more races joined in, maybe tyranids pushing through.
I think you could do some really cool stuff

They could, but I think that what you described is actually the best-case scenario.

I think cipher will team up with the thorian inquisitors, kill the corpse emperor and alliow him to be reborn. If mankind survives the crisis there will be a new golden age.

What do you think other takes on it would be? Can't you see new armies rising out the ashes of a shattered imperium? Or cool new alien armies coming through? Or chaos being the new imperium?

Cicero what are the thorian inquisitors?

They won't ever advance that far, at least not while we're all alive IRL. It makes more sense for the company and their fluff writers to keep things balanced -- or near enough -- so that there is a perpetuation of grimdark.

A radical sect of the inquisition that believes that by entombiing the emperor in the golden throne we were interfering with his plan for humanity.

Interesting read. I wonder what would happen if the Inquisition went to the the Ultra Marines and said "Guys, Roboute was indeed healing because the Emperor needs him to be a vessel for himself. The time has come for that to happen, please hand him over". :lol:
