i was wondering in what order the chaos gods were created. i know slaanash was last and tzeench came before nurgle but im not sure the 4 orders.
i mean nurgle is older than tzeench lol
I know Khorne was first and slaanesh was last, not sure about the other two.

In the old fluff describing the creation of the Emperor, Khorne came first, in ancient times then nurgle in the middle ages, with all the diesases that were circulating. Tzeenetch arose with the growing intrige and complexity within the politcal system, and finnally Slannesh with the fall of the Eldar.
In the story about the shamens and the Emperor, thats the order that it went, Khorne, Nurgle Tzeentch, then slannesh. And if you look at the way humanity has evolved, it makes sence does it not?Originally Posted by harlequin2262
wars, disease, political intreague, self gratification/self indulgence , sounds kinda familiar
FluffMaster on a mission to turn people to the Sisters of battle, yes folks it's all about SoB squads in Repressors with lots of flamer templates for the win.
Nice idea, but as harlequin pointed out Slanesh is the Eldar's fault. Their vices and overindulgences made their homeworld 'explode', maybe not the BOOM of an orbital bombardment, but something like a firework or anything else very glittery and colourful Like Slanesh...

Slaneesh is definitly the last that has been consistent throughout WH40K background. (His title is Prince incidentally as in Prince of Pleasure Perfection or whatever indicating he is the youngest).
As for the other chaos gods you habe to go far back into WH40K background to the Realms of chaos days which some say aren't up to date nowadays but personally I think are still pretty much accurate. In this case Khorne is the oldest. This is interestin gthough because intuitivly Nurgle should be the oldest seeing as the Universe at it svery creation immediatly started dying, but then I guess emotions weren't present to begin Nurgles creation......

I'd say: Khorne, Nurgle, Tzneetch, Slaneesh too.Nurgle is more about desperation and avoiding death and disease. Caving into the pressures of mortality and accepting nurgle, even if it means that you become something else, just to avoid the fact that you will die.This is interesting though because intuitively Nurgle should be the oldest seeing as the Universe at its very creation immediately started dying, but then I guess emotions weren't present to begin Nurgle's creation......
That wouldn't necessarily come about until things like the plague and disease became a major thing.
Khorne however is the most primeval of all. Loooong loong before disease was a big problem, people figured out that sticks could be used to hit each other.

Nurgle is also meant to have an association with corruption. As in a idea (pure) be it good or bad being changed, watered down or warped. Essentially an idea being corrupted and all that sprang from it falling apart.
There were many things that fell apart in the middle ages because of the plague that led people to challenge established beliefs.
Religeous leaders would have normally been untouchable by the common people were attacked by mobs because they weren't immune to and could provide no protection from the plague.
Also the strictly enforced system of class was greatly reduced with commoners demanding more rights. Essentially the status quo was destroyed through decay.
