I was wondering what happens when Chaos takes over a world in Imperial space. I had an idea of a Chapter defending an area of IMperial space arounding a world which had fallen to chaos. Would this be fesable? (sp?)
Do you mean what happens to the planet, or what is Imperial policy on captured worlds?I assume you mean a Chapter defending against incursions from the planet in question, yes? I think if a planet was taken without any hope of being able to reconquer it, the Imperium would probably use Exterminatus, and cordon off the planet. It is unlikely that they would allow a force large enough to take a planet to become entrenched in Imperial space.I had an idea of a Chapter defending an area of IMperial space arounding a world which had fallen to chaos.
well actually it was more Imperial policy and would they try to defend the area around the captured planet. I was thinking of it being on the western fringe of the IMperium and the area might be attacked by invaders from beyound the Imperium. But mainly around defending the space around the planet. would it be possible?
My opinion, if they had the chance, they'd just exterminate the planet's population. Long term, it's more efficient than having to station millions of troops there for all eternity.
The only time they wouldn't is if they didn't have the chance to, like if the planet was consumed by a warp storm caused by the chaos worship occuring on its surface.
You do realize that the point is to maintain and preserve empires right? Not kill off your own worlds every time one of your enemies tries to take it for themselves... (Your not winning when you do that, your only killing off the innocent or redeemable.)Originally Posted by The_Giant_Mantis
If a world is taken over by an enemy of the imperium then they try to take it back, if their defending it then they defend until their all following the enemy or dead.
The final solution any commander makes is to exterminate one of their own worlds.
