Does anyone else think that since the early years of 40k, the background for Chaos and its followers has been watered down.

Nowadays, the followers of Chaos have been described generally as sporting a few mutations such as horns, tentacles etc, nothing too graphic or disturbing.

While in the olden days of yore and especially the older BL books such as Inquisition War, mutations, daemons, daemon worlds etc were enough to make you puke.

Example, in Inquisition War there is a daemon cow thing with many breasts that likes being tied up and beaten and stabbed.

Or the Emperor's Children Marine that has his penis extend into a leash of sorts that holds a Spawn, everytime the Spawn is hurt, the Marine has a good time so to speak.
