Missing For 3 Years: Is Slaanesh Legally Dead?

Archaon’s here and yet everyone can’t seem to stop talking about Slaanesh for some reason. What’s really up with the whole Slaanesh thing anyways?

I was trolling, er I mean checking my Facebooks today when I saw a post from SpikeyBits talking about why there was no Slaanesh love on the new Archaon model. Hmmmm click.

Okay so it looks like everyone’s just jumping in about insert dumb random thought here, BUT then MBG drops the knowledge bombs on us about what Archaon has and doesn’t have right?

So I thought okay I’ll bite sir, let me go do some digging cause one way or another I want to know whats up with the Slaaneshes. (Actually I really just want to know if we’ll ever see models with boobies again. Don’t judge me I know you’re thinking it too…)

Guess what? The last time we actually saw a real Slanneshi model was back in 2012! The Hell Striders of Slaanesh came out in October, and the Exalted Seeker of Slaanesh in July. That makes it nearly 3-1/2 years without ANY new releases for the god of Rock’n’roll.

No End Times Minis

No AoS Minis

No 40k Minis

But every other god has gotten minis, so what gives GW?

How bout this:


Archaon was designed AFTER the last Slaaneshi minis were released in 2013 even. So GW has been sitting on him for nearly 2-1/2 years!!! Remember those big Archaon mount rumors from the first of the year, well holler at your boy here he is finally!

So has GEE DUB been trying to kill Slaanesh off for 3 years now? Hold up don’t answer that yet. Look here:


They are still pimping the sex god’s symbol on this thing, and even Archaon has a small little glyph for bling on his shield too.


Well like MBG said to the trolls:

….another point I would like to make the heads of the steed are dead champions sent to kill him noticed there isn’t a dead slaanshie champion head? So maybe/really shaanesh is missing or dead or not powerful? ….

Pretty much makes sense.

Now I’ll ask you again: has GW been trying to kill Slaanesh off for 3 years now, and if they are… why?
