    Exterminatus is the obliteration of a world's entire population through some form of weapon used from orbit or nearby space.
    It is the most extreme method of dealing with some form of heresy, corruption or alien infiltration which has taken root within a planet's population. Accordingly it is only used in the most extreme of circumstances, when the level of corruption a world bears is so monumental that it cannot be wiped out by any other means. The destruction of the entire population is deemed necessary to prevent the contagion from spreading further.
    Exterminatus is essentially one of the many tools in the armoury of the Imperium, used in those cases where complete destruction is deemed a better solution than more subvert or conventional methods. The world in question may have fallen to Chaos worship, or its Imperial government overthrown and replaced by the rule of aliens such as Genestealers, or it may be a non-Imperial world harbouring an extraordinarily powerful and dangerous species of alien. Exterminatus is often resorted to when the world is deemed to be not worth the amount of men and material that would be required to conquer or reclaim it. Exterminatus is very rarely used on planets vital or valuable to the Imperium.

    Being a photographer is a tough thing.

    You can be objective and report/take pictures and be a passive observer to catastrophes, horrors and evil- OR you can attempt to help.

    In the end, the problem is that you become glorified and exalted because you chose to witness and record and report, rather than help when your aid could have been given.

    Moreover, it's not like you can do both. Good pictures require good timing, positioning, angles, lighting and adjustments, you cant just leave the camera on auto and go help.

    Such is the life of the photographer.
    Occasionally you get a good day where your photography and reporting helps take criminals to jail...

    But then you make yourself a target!

    Space Marines: Manly Men with clean-shaven faces and pipes, wearing Buck Rogers/Adam Strange-like helmets and skintight suits with jetpacks and oval pauldrons, and wielding rayguns.
    Imperial Guard: The same, just more institutionalized. Not everyone is a muscular middle-aged white man: there are some youngsters, some skinny folks, some pudgy old men. Even some negroes and chinamen! Also, more nondescript helmets and costumes, no pauldrons, no jetpacks, maybe some modern-age military insignia. Think Dan Dare.
    Sisters of Battle: Cheesecake space babes with spherical fishbowl helmets and sexy skintight suits. Most of the time need to be rescued by manly men of SM and IG.
    Eldar: Tall beautiful wise humanoid aliens dressed in togas and living in crystal spires. An utopian advanced society. Think Krypton. Eldar chicks are almost all princesses, they are sexy and often fall in love with a handsome Imperial explorer. Or a James Bond-like Vindicare...
    Dark Eldar: Vampires IN SPACE! Specifically, cheesy Elvira-like vampires.
    Tau: Grey Aliens with flying saucers, anal probes, the stuff. They are not commies, they worship another Greater Good - SCIENCE! They need our brains and women FOR SCIENCE!
    Vespid, Kroot etc: Various Space Monsters.
    Tyranids: Space Bugs.

    Yeah, but what can that difference be?

    Imho, SM have their counterparts in the old sci-fi's intrepid space explorers (a la Buck Rogers).
    The problem is, 50's spacemen's costumes are rather skintight and minimalistic, so the contrast between SM's bulky armor and IG's more proportionate uniforms is gone.

    What could IG be?

    Most of the time, they're creepy fucks who steal people for SCIENCE, and SCIENCE seems to fit the role of a Greater Good, doesn't it?

    Though, Imperial commissars will call Gray!Tau commies all the time - just like they'll call Eldar, DEldar, Orks, Tyranids and Necrons commies, too.

    I think Chaos is more of a concept, rather than a nation. Thus it could be represented by COMMUNISM, and Chaos Chapters are like Cuba or North Korea - once Imperial countries, corrupted by CHAOMMUNISM.

    When I think of 50s scifi, I think of things like lumbering robots and creatures that, while realistically laughable, were considered threatening and terrifying to the heroes they faced. I kinda see the Space Marines as being similar to that. Big guys in big, bulky, aluminum space-suits and domed helmets that are called the "greatest soldiers" as they slowly lumber onto the battlefield with big ray-guns and cheesy rocket-packs (I'm picturing a close-up of cheep pyrotechnics coming out of chrome nozzles, and then a faraway shot of the entire robot-like marine being lifted straight into the air by obvious cables, then a jump-cut to the him "landing" from about three inches above the ground). IMHO, the aesthetic works for them.
    For the IG, I see entire squads of guys dressed in shiny, skin-tight polyester uniforms with outlandish helmets (see OP pic) and ridiculous ray-guns made up of antenna and glass tubes.

    I think Chaos chapters in 50s!WH40k weren't ordinary chapters who got turned to Chaos, but rather single warriors from the Imperial star force, who got turned to chaos on an individual basis, and then got together and formed new Chaos chapters.

    Hmm, agree with this. Specifically, I like the RADIATION angle.
    Hulk meets Cap America meets Superman meets Doc Savage?
    They should be dressed in garish costumes with a gratuitous use of American symbols, like Cap America and similar patriotic superheroes.

    But I still think they should look like "ideal" men of the 50s. Clean-shaven, with a slick haircut, a huge chin and a trusty pipe. E.g., the "Hero of the beach" ad. Actually, the "Hero of the beach" ad could be a SM recruitment poster!

Their society has grown out of their primitive impulses (no they haven't) and take pity on the warring factions of the galaxy, like they were children.

    Dark Eldar: Ming the merciless arch type?

    Tau: Yes, bug eyes martians with fancy rayguns and saucers. For Science! And all the auxiliaries? Enslaved aliens or mutants made, through science!

    Tyranids: Big space bugs. Attack of the Giant Spider, Blob, etc. A hive fleet is suppose to be a singular organism, so a big Godzilla is as good as a bunch of little space ants.

    Orks: Any monster that's suppose to be smart enough for space travel, but acts like an animal when humans come along. What was that black and white movie that Carpenter turned into The Thing?

    Necrons: Robots are good. Something like Cylons, but with more of a 50's look.

    Chaos: Brilliant.

    I'm not even sure what I was talking about any more. I read a 50s pulp story called the Mechanical Monarch the other day which had these giant 'Metamen' cyborgs in it.

    Anyway, yes, I guess what I was getting at is that Space Marines in 40k operate on a different level to other people and it feels like a 50s sci-fi is either going to have to fundamentally change them or drain them of character. If you make them Flash Gordon star rangers then you give them butt loads of personality and colour, but also take away their 'space marine' quality. They basically become storm troopers.

    DEldar want them for deviancy of the most sinful and indecent sort (note: it's mostly DEldar women who want them).

    My bad, not genetically engineered.

    The heroes of 30-50s were eugenically perfect men with chiselled bodies and handsome faces. Imho they could have somewhat bulky space suits, but I agree that their faces should be left open.
    There could be several different chapters with different looks, e.g.,:
    1. American chapter: Suits covered with American symbols, a la Cap America
    2. Man of the house chapter: Clean-shaven, clean-cut, perpetually smiling, chiselled chin, pipe-smoking, newspaper-reading. All have a nuclear family on their home planets, with happy wife in kitchen, and happy children watching Holo-TV.
    3. Adam Strange chapter - with finned helmets, oval pauldrons, the stuff.
    4. Muscle chapter - Doc Savage and "Hero of the beach". Huge chiselled bodies, very strong. Huge chins.

    That doesn't sound too intimidating...

    1. Fu Manchu type. Powerful commander, made immortal by Chaos magic. Scheming, very clever and cunning. Treacherous. Dressed in a dark and ornamented version of an Eldars' toga.
    2. His daughter. The same, but beautiful. Even more sadistic than her father. But takes pity on a dashing Imperial space explorer, and a LCB scenario follows.
    3. Elvira/Vampira/Betty Page. Dominatrixes, black/red-leather-clad, with whips, fishnets, high heels and cigarettes. Maybe masks. Subliminal lesbian subtext.

    As for TV hosts and such, commissars need to follow the troops. They need to be out there with them, not raising the morale of the people at home. That's the job for priests.

    And since when did 50's military have sponsors?

    >Greasers were not communists.
    True, but neither were feminists, black rights groups, gays and beatniks.
    Still, they were reviled by mainstream 50s propaganda.
    In a world like 40k, that would make them CHAOS agents.

    Remember, CHAOS isn't just members of the Communist Party. CHAOS works in unseen ways, corrupting unsuspecting citizens, making them stray from the glorious ideals of Truth, Justice and the Imperial Way.

    [/propaganda] I thought greasers and the like could be Imperial warriors who were secretly converted by Chaos without actually knowing they serve Chaos, but made to fight against the Imperium.

    People who worship Lenin are the ones who want things to be like they were in the good old days.

    People who worship Stalin just want to crush all resistance before the might of communism.

    People who worship Tzeentch are educated bookworms that argue about the failed philosophies of capitalism and promote world wide class struggle.

    Che is the poster boy for the revolution. When you hate your parents and The Man, you can always trust Che. Go and find like minded individuals who also enjoy Che. Beatnik and other subversives worship Che for his radical ways.

    That's actually quite fitting.

    >Trotsky as Slaanesh
    Could work. Bolsheviks in the USSR instituted several new ideas like internationalism, women's equality, gay rights, free love etc., while Trotsky held much power. Some of these were revoked later by Stalin as "trotskist" ideas.
    Thus, Trotsky is the chaos god who advocates "heretical" ideas of sexual freedom, anticolonialism, internationalism and racial equality.
    Stalin (Khorne) supports violent class struggle and red terror.
    Marx (Tzeentch) supports revolution, and by proxy any rebel sentiment against the existing order.
    Lenin (Nurgle) supports the "death" of capitalism and private property, ideas of shared property, planned economy, social guarantees, elimination of money etc., and by proxy all ideas of "taking it from the rich and giving to the poor".

    >And since when did 50's military have sponsors?
    It's not the real 50's, it's the mega-hyperbolized to the max 50's.

    How many people worshipped Che in the 50's? Remember, the most popular black-n-white image of Che was made in 1968.

    So, you suggest that the only candidate for Chaos Marines is the Communist Party of the USA? :)
    It's not funny.

    I suggested greasers, feminists, black panthers and beatniks as Chaos Marines, because I treated 50s!40k not as real 50s, but as "a world where 50s propaganda is right". Thus, in such a world, beatniks and gay rights activists are actually commie agents, willing or unwilling, bent on the destruction of Holy Amerra.

    Well fuck me sideways and call me aunt Betsy:

    True, I'll admit that.

    >Black Panthers
    "The organization's leaders espoused socialist and communist (largely Maoist) doctrines."

    Opposed capitalism hard. Might not be purebred communists, but surely would have worked harder with communists than capitalists. Probably brainwashed cultists not knowing of the horros of the interplanetary communist conspiracy and blinded by their hatred of capitalism.

    Just heretics, trying to subvert the Imperium. It's the Imperium of MAN, ladies.

    Soul Drinkers(?), then. Not Chaos worshipers per se, but outside the Imperial law. I just do not see them as communits, just because they might have a problem with the official way things are done.

    > Orks want them... i dunno, to pose with them all savage-like while a hero approaches to save the damsel.
    I like this idea.
    Just as Orks in 40K want to wage war, the Space Orks of "50K" want to be stereotypical "Savage" villains. They kidnap women, threaten them in an overly dramatic way and threaten to burn them at the stake, etc.
    What the heroic Space Marines haven't realised is that the Space Orks WANT them to win and ALLOW themselves to be constantly bested, because that's what a good Space-Savage does.

    Well, sometimes the damsel captured by an Ork could awake the tender soul in the beast, thus making the Ork release her and flee or commit suicide.

    Well, maybe *some* of them.
    I don't think rocker Commissars in general fit very well with an ultra-conservative 50s Imperium.

    And I still like the Salesman/Televangelist Commissar version. Who says he is only shown to IG on TV? He can be his usual loveable self, on the front lines of Imperium's holy war!

    Not all of them.

    As was said in this thread earlier, USSR was the first country to legalize gays. Communists viewed homosexuality and sex in general as oppressed by religion, thus they proposed gay rights and free love.

    Later, homosexuality was banned by Stalin, and stayed that way until 1991. So, Stalinists hate gays, but e.g. Trotskyists don't.

    Homosexuality was illegal in the USA (and the West in general) during the time period we're discussing (until 1962), so it was kinda logical (using McCarthyist warped logic) to link one outlawed thing to another.

    >1956: The Daughters of Bilitis, a pioneering national lesbian organization, is founded.

    Sounds like a good name for an all-lesbian Chaos Marine chapter!

    They have no females of their own race, but instead seize the females of others for procreation. Sort of like certain old movies.
    therefore, we must conclude that 50k orks have cocks.

    Whereas D!Eldar just want them as harem girls, Chaos wants to convert them, and the Tau like to experiment on them (maybe they find female bodies better subjects?)

    This is awesome, and seems to be doing okay for the most part, but while you guys are fleshing out the 1950sness, don't lose yourselves in it, lest you forget this is first and foremost PulpScifi-40k. Any political stuff is merely augmenting that, as it relates to the era pulp scifi existed in. Be careful or this can spiral into McCarthy-40k, or something. Of course, we seem to have alot of the aesthetics down so carry on.

    Btw, what does the "X!Y" thing come from? As in, Gray!Tau, 50s!40k etc.

    We seem to be unsure about what Commissars are, so how about we make them WWII Bob Hope, in space?,

    Also: While it doesn't fit in with the "Chaos=Communism/un-Americanism" we're developing, I personally feel the Monster From the Id from Forbidden Planet (pic related) would be PERFECT for Chaos. I mean hell, what is Chaos other than the manifestations of everyones Id? The Krell's extinction was basically the Fall of the Eldar, but less grimdark-rapetastic and more 1950s special effecty.

    I suppose this means Space-Captain Leslie Nielsen (this is PRE AIRPLANE, remember)has to be a Marine now.
