      Two terms you would have heard repeatedly throughout the Horus Heresey lore video and don't yet have any real context for are "Primarch" and "Astartes" (i.e. Space Marine).

      So with what you now know about The Emperor and the general history of the Imperium the next pieces of lore to confront are: "Who are the Primarchs?" and "What exactly is a Space Marine?"

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VS-grJrdt8E

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCtjjx_XY8o

      These 2 videos give a basic overview of what Primarchs and Space Marines are (probably makes more sense to watch the primarch video first),

      Then after that if you're still interested in learning more, I think the lore behind the individual primarchs and their legions would be the next place to go.
      Does the dude cover the individual primarchs and the legions...?

      Also, I feel sorry for space marines.

            In any logical universe, Ork "technology" shouldn't work. It works because the orcs yell at it really loudly and tell it to work.

              It literally works because they are so dumb they can't understand that it doesn't work. so collectively they all think it works and so it does.

              Also everyone knows that red bikes go faster.

                Got through all of these some time ago.

                Any other lore suggestions?

                Also, is Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine a good game? Seems to get some positive attention albeit with advice to get it when it's on sale.

                Looks fun from the gameplay.

                  Never played, but I've heard good things about that game. For a man of chaos culture, here's some lore of a more heretical variety. On the Chaos Gods, their champions, and their armies:


                  MAJOR CHAOS GODS

                  Khorne, The Blood God: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vry1zO0l7Fg

                  Tzeentch, Changer of the Ways: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3liS8FIOgzc

                  Nurgle, the Plague Father: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deVNhSJ3MGo

                  Slaanesh, the Prince of Pleasure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QEobqQBTe4


                  CHAMPIONS OF CHAOS

                  Kharn the Betrayer, Champion of Khorne: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oL5Cqtd1hHE

                  Ahriman, Champion of Tzeentch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSMrNkJmZYo

                  Typhus, Champion of Nurgle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMAiowSrvSc

                  Lucius the Eternal, Champion of Slaanesh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OUXCCzTACQ



                  MORE CHAOS LORE:

                  "The Black Crusades": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Co7BlnsAHZ0

                  "Tuska Daemon-Killa!": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1epy5Y2jAg

                  "Is Chaos Inherently Evil?": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKmdeR9tdiw

                    Khorne is generally considered to be the most meme-worthy of the chaos gods, and even casual internet-dwellers with no 40k background have at some point encountered "BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!"


                    But Slaanesh is basically the god of cocaine and hentai, so...

                          I mean the Slaanesh abilities are unique and do their own thing. I'm talking about the models for a lot of her units... also the descriptions of a lot of her corrupted types in books.

                          There's a lotta mammaries.

                                He supposedly wanted to keep The Webway Project a secret so that Chaos wouldn't find out about it + fuck with his plans.

                                ...but of course Tzeentch already knew about it and was fucking with his plans before the idea was ever even conceived because...welll...Tzeentch...

                                (Tzeentch's level of "Just as Planned" makes Sosuke Aizen look like a fish out of water with downs syndrome)
                                ___________

                                My theory is that the Chaos Gods were playing the Emperor from the moment he emerged at the forefront of humanity as the most powerful living being ever born into the materium--seeing in this shiny new glow-in-the-dark human a means to spread chaos on an unprecedented scale.

                                They tricked him into thinking that he was going to be the one to destroy them. That he--the mighty Emperor--could actually end chaos influence and chaos corruption by leading his armies out into the greater galaxy and spreading his "Imperial Truth." Thereby depriving them of worship and creating such order + repression of chaotic impulses that they would simply cease to exist as embodiments of their respective concepts within the warp.

                                They gave him the knowledge to create the Primarchs and the Legiones Astartes. They gave him the means to wage his Great Crusade and conquer the galaxy.

                                And from the moment they did this, they already knew that giving the Emperor this knowledge would bring about the events of the Horus Hersey + the Age of Imperium. It was all part of their plan.

                                ....10,000 years of endless warfare on a galactic scale; power unto KHORNE

                                ...quadrillions of sickly humans packed into the shit and squalor of hive cities, living in the most sordid of conditions and grinding their short mortal lives away in manufactorums and dying young from poor sanitation and preventable illnesses; power unto NURGLE

                                ... layers upon layers upon layers of political machinations from the High Lords of Terra to the Inquisition to the Ecclesiarchy to the command structures of the Astra Militarum, to the lowliest schemes of backwater Planetary Governors and Noble Houses; power unto TZEENTCH.

                                ...quadrillions of prideful humans convinced that they and they alone are the perfect race, indulging in the ego of human supremacy over the xenos scum and taking it to a level of absolute excess with their deification of "The God-Emperor of Mankind" and display of lavish cathedrals and iconography; power unto SLAANESH.


                                This is what the Chaos Gods desired. And from the beginning they knew--this is what the Emperor's rise to power would do for them.

                                All along the Emperor believed he was fighting Chaos, but he was just their pawn. Everything he did in the name of destroying the Chaos Gods fed them more power, and the Emperor was none-the-wiser.

                                It was Tzeentch's most perfect "Just as Planned."
