    I dunno, maybe the Chaos Gods was inspired by other dark gods like Chtulhu (spelling?), Baal and those stuff...
    And I bet that the Emperor fight for som kinda' light god.

    The way I se it the whole 40k game is based around a solid foundation of religion.
    Most armies bear solid reseblance to an existing religion... some of the resemblances are so direct that I would personally point out that maybe the origial designers of 40k were depely religious or well versed in religious history.
    Look at it this way I got some examples...
    The Imperium can be compared to christianity.
    The Imperial guard is the solid Catholic force obeying the one emperor/god.
    The Deamon hunters can be compared to the religious orders, like say the spanish inqusition.
    The Space Marines bear resemblance to the Protestant Church.
    They worship the sons of the emperor.... the primaches, which can resemble Jesus.
    The different chapters each resembling a different sub group... like say baptists, mormons, evangelists and so on.
    The other more "evil races also have some sort of religious connection.
    The best example I have to that is the danger from the east, the Tau.
    They believe in the greater good which I compare to Buddism. Coming from the east and "Infecting" the noble imperium. (No offence to any buddists out there with the infecting thing, ok?)
    Other armies I can't put my finger on and point out what religion they are, but they are a resemblance to some religion out there.

    Chaos is an official religion. Not sure about the others though, I suppose the imperial cult is something like catholicism (or something) a few centuries back (when they hunted down anyone who was slightly different).

    :blink: Chaos is an official religion? Official as in legitimatly believed, or not really believed (like Jedi). Is it similar to Warhammer Chaos, or different completely?

    Yeah there is a Chaos religion, from what I&#39;ve read about it (but im not 100% certain how true it is) people who are members call themselves Disordian Solipsist&#39;s.

    Solipsist: One who believes that the universe around him/her is their own creation and that it can be easily altered.

    Discordian: One who is chaotic in nature, and causes mishief.
