Fluff, is a wonderful thing. Its what makes our hobby such a rich and meaningful past-time. Without any background our games would be meaningless encounters of dice rolling, which, lets be honest, would be horrendous.
It pains me sometimes to see people complain about what GW have written in terms of backstory for a race. There was a recent topic on a 40k page on Facebook I sometimes check where people were complaining about the Necron fluff and how it had changed, which meant they didn't like them anymore. Apparantly going from 'we take your life force and exterminate everything' to 40k Tomb Kings' wasn't good enough for this guy and many others who agreed with him. So basically, they've gone from mechanical zombies into a sad story of a race fallen from grace.... Ahem... really?
But anyway, do any of you have similar things that you're upset about when it comes to background? What about area's you wish were more covered and would love GW to expand upon and deepen? I've often wanted more about the Squats, not neccessarily to bring them back as an army, but just a nice amount of backstory as to what exactly happened, a proper send off shall we say? Perhaps if this existed GW wouldn't have to sigh everytime someone asked "are the Squats coming back?" as people would have read enough about them to know what exactly went on.
Another question for you fine fellows and ladies to ponder...
If you could add your own fluff to the 40k universe, what would it be? I love reading peoples ideas in this regard and would love to see some of yours. Perhaps you've already written some background for your Imperial Guard regiment, Chaos Space Marines band, or Ork armies? If so, I'd very much appreciate it if you could link it in the comments, I'm surely not the only person who loves the fan fiction style fluff of 40k!
