Chaos is getting a new dex with the ettera already included. Plus they're getting several new units and a new CSM box. With Abby getting a make-over maybe he will be less of an armless failure and actually win for once!

When they get a starter set featuring IG vs whatever. Honestly, if IG were ever given the opportunity I'm sure they would deliver. Hell, the ad mech are in two boxed sets! Could even throw a Knight in with the guard just to show that they too can use them. Not that they need them, especially if said set had a Leman Russ or a Basilisk.

But all Rhinos are based on the same Standard Template Construct, and thus they all have the same proportions. Making a machine bigger is more complicated than just telling a computer "up all dimensions by 10%".

In any case, the rest of the image still features drop pods the size of a titan, Predators larger than a Baneblade and a guardsman that's 1,80m next to a 2m tall Space Marine that seems to be double the height of the guardsman. As the other anon pointed out, the proportions are a bit fucked up

I always assumed the AdMech upscaled Space Marine vehicles from their STCs to begin with as the DAoT humans were not 8foot slabs of meat that required far larger buttons and chairs. STCs are more commonly blueprints and not .stl files on roids anyway.

Recasts. Or maybe they're a part of some community that has a collective bits bin and they just pur all their spares in there? I know those flagellants are just legs with guitar wire plus a bunch of other crap tacked on.

Aside from some stylistic changes (curvy trim is in vogue now, apparently), look at the heads compared to the rest of their bodies - they're much smaller. Which probably actually means that the bodies are much bigger. I imagine they just didn't want termies to be manliest compared to the new power armour CSMs. I agree berserkers are a higher priority, but they're probably waiting to do a full Khorne release with Angron at some point.

Gonna repost this from the other thread, 'cause it got lost, but Version 1.1 of Imperial Atomica is out. It's a system-agnostic splatbook for the FFG RPGs about nuclear warfare and postnuclear survival.

This update is mostly quality-of-life fixes, aiming to polish and rebalance some of the stuff I missed in version 1.1. It also includes a bunch of new gear, several new vehicles, a ton more art, and many other things besides.

Well, if you hate model updates that are just pose changes then the new havocs will probably not be to your liking.

I did like how GW is giving Chaos rotor cannons, probably to make up for the fact they gave Primaris autocannons so CSM lose another unique thing to the loyalists. I will say that the old havoc models are barbaric monopose abominations, but I expected more than just an update to plastic. Most people just kitbash devastators anyway, so why not make a kit that's more like that? Two of each special weapon per box + combi-weapons and melee weapons/pistols for the sergeant.

Kept it simple. Two Burnas, a Spanna with Rokkit Launcha, Boss with Big Choppa (Kombi-Skorcha), three Kommandos, Three Shoota Boyz, and a Grot.

I had no idea if that was a good list or not but I found it funny how my ork shootas were getting more hits than his Black Templars (had an Auspex-assisted Sergeant and a Sniper). We ended the game at a friendly tie on turn 4 as I had to suddenly leave. I have some gripes about some things - like not being able to chase a zoggin' git who withdraws from melee, or not being able to fire my zoggin' slugga at a grot while advancing... But it was still fun. The Orks got the first kill but I think if the game went on long enough he would have won out for points.

But zog me, those 6+ armor saves are a real pain. Good thing my Kommandos were there to suck up most of the ranged attacks. He had a really hard time trying to get a bead on them.

...Well, I guess I better break out those Ork Boy sprues that have been sitting in my storage bins since 2011.

Are Catapractii terminators worth taking for HH? They aren't fast, but they're durable as fuck. I was thinking of gearing them up for shooting. But they can't overwatch? So are they only good at melee? Or can they be used for dakka outside of IW and Ultras?

Yes. It was a very limited, Necron-focused take on Stands. This aims to fill in the gaps.

It's more fun that way, and it helps me nail down how to vaguely balance them. I'm going to write up, if not a full system for making new ones, then guidelines for how to go about doing so.

You're going to teleport them or dump them out of a Spartan or Dreadclaw right? Just forget about footslogging them unless you really really want to play ultrafluffy DG.

The best loadout for 10 is probably going to be 2 guys with plasmablasters and fist, and the rest a mix of Volkite and fist/claw, maybe a chainfist or two. This gets you a solid mix of melee and ranged, so they can still be a threat after destroying their target, or on the way towards it, but make no mistake, dakka must never be their main role.

For pure melee you're better off with Tartaros, going all dual claws and chain/fist. Of course, at that point a transport is pretty much obligatory.

The biggest question though, is what legion you are playing and whether or not their special termies are more useful for your purposes.


 No.414310

Update on the Stand Battles. I'm about half finished, and the rules for them are shaping up. The goal is to make each Stand kind of fuck with the game mechanics in unusual ways, like breaking up the turn order, providing a damage resistance system, or turning armour into a shareable resource.

I'm very much open to suggestions on any of the Stands that have no description. Got no fucking clue on what to do with Primo Victoria or Bangles or Hotel California.

The starter boxes are cheaper than getting the individual stuff or any of those "Start Collecting" boxes. Also you now have multiple starter sets to choose from. Since they come with the same rules, but for different armies, then you could easly buy two, then split them up. Whoever wants the Primaris marines will get the majority of shit though.

When the WHFB world blew up he/she ate all the elves because why not and this lead to it being pulled entirely into reality but this allowed it to be contained and chained up by Teclis and his brother.

They then kept it chained up in a wierd pocket dimension between the magical discworld realms and light and shadow in the same place Nagash sent the city of Shadespire. Now some of those steampunk dwarves, who of course ruin everything they touch, get an item called "The Mirror of the most vain" while plundering Shadespire and now they are being hunted down by the roaming cenobyte tribes of 'godseeking Hedoknights' that have been basically raised by daemonettes and keepers of secrets to be worshippers looking to free Slaanesh which is clearly going to happen as the big event as part of the years ongoing regression to make stuff for the most part, sigmarines aside, be more familiar to the fantasy stuff. They brought back skaven and the ghouls, grots and fireslayers are getting this shit recently and theres rumours after slaanesh of lizardmen.

The long and short of it is Sigmar rode the burning old world as a twin tailed comet through space, met this zodiac beast that lead it to these elemental discworlds where magic comes from. The souls disperesed using the life realms magic and were reborn. Some were such dominant personalities they retained complete continuity like Nagash, others were reborn as the same people and lead different lives but their personality lead to similar choices and an overall similar person all over again. But then a lot of the generic souls of the warhammer world just went native to each realm. Humans for example are industrial power houses in the metal realm but zealous bright wizards and witch hunters in the fire realm.

So some stuff carries on the same, Nagash raises the dead as skeletons in the exact same way so guess what skeletons are still just skeletons. Other stuff went through it and came out different or wrong. The Deepkin are an attempt by a reborn Teclis to pull the souls of elves out of Slaaneshes gut to remake the high elves but roughly 2000 years in the gut of the god of excess left its traumatic marks and they were pale and fearful of the light so fled to the ocean depths but their children are eyeless, pale albinoids with no souls so they raid fishing villages for souls and use sea based magic so the towns forget they were raided and the people who are stolen. Some high elves naturally reincarnated but they are this pheonix cult thats not been to expanded upon but are fewer in number whereas the deepkin are in oceans in all the realms.

Meanwhile there are Wood elves but most of them didn't reincarnate into mammalian life at all. In the realm of Life Allariel is the god of seasons and the antithesis -or some say counterpart- to Nurgle. Through her most wood elves were reborn as dryads, some with a half ghostly form growing out of bark and timber torso resembling their elvish roots. While some like Drycha Hammadreth are also back like that but kept their continuity but are extremely traumatised and little more than a berzeker.

and then the dark elves are litteraly a all female race of lamia and harpies after being trapped inside slaanesh the longest, they call themselves the daughters of khaine but nobody will be surprised when they turn out to be slaaneshi cultists down the line.

Basically some people are reborn and remember, some are reborn and keep their personality but dont and others are reincarnated as totally new people but might remember certain cultural touchstones like brightwizards or dwarven runes and not even know why. Bare in mind most of this is coming out with the second edition releases. That shitty "you got a beard wind your roll xD" 1st edition trash is completely off the table, theres now a 300 page history of what happened in the millenia between end time and soul wars, the 1st edition made it looks like house of M or something and sigmar snapped his fingers and whole new civilisations existed. Looking back it feels like they wanted a true reboot and due to deserved backlash worked it into a sequel instead. Love or hate the game the worldbuilding is much better in second because it actually has any. some of it like the magic in the realm of life being so strong at the edge it turns women into permanently self impregnating immaculate baby factories that give birth to new species of life go full on magical realm. Meanwhile "Sigmars greatest mistake" are turning into emotionless robots that wipe out human settlements because merely existing is the potential for chaos so guess what they are turning into the lawful evil everyone expected. Shocking huh?

Actually believe it or not Orkz have kind of been left behind in Age of Sigmar. They just aren't very popular and as yet have no major updates for 2nd edition.

Meanwhile, and i do really like the nautical devilry of the Deepkin i think the Grots right now are a way better state than they were in the last edition of WHFB. Moonclan Grots, Spider worshippers, gargants and troggoths are all one large group that go into a frenzy when Da Bad Moon appears over a realm and causes a Gloomspite. They believe if they cause enough carnage they will catch the moons attention and hold it in place to cause 'The Everdank' which their Loonking has already done over a former Skaven city in the realm of metal. It makes everything mildewy, its twilight all the time, bugs explode from the ground along with forests of fungi which even explode from spores in human bodies.

It also helps Da Bad Moon itself is a massive cosmic asshole. Its eaten other moons because it was jealous of them getting worshipped, its saved towns of wood elves only to spit down loonrocks and kill them afterwards, he regularly invades the realm of chaos just to be an asshole. On the current map of the realms he is shown flying around the realm of slaanesh because "fuck you i'm the bad moon you can't tell me what to do" and nurgle finds him to be like a incorrigible nephew but tzeentch fucking hates him as he is the one element in the universe he has no control over.

Nobody knows where he comes from. Some say he is Gork or Morks head, a giant piece of cheese gorkamorka broke his teeth on, an egg laid by the spidergod and more.

All people really know is the bravest armies in the warhammer universe can stand against armies of undead or skaven just fine but still see a cresting asshole come over the horizon and go "aw shit lads, its the fucking bad man" and thats peak greenskin. He could show up in 40k and i would have on complaints.

So I finally read the SoB novels. They were pretty alright. There were some weird bits but overall I enjoyed them. I'd even say that I liked the first one better, though it seems like most prefer the second one.

I wonder if the omnibus is worth getting just for the two short stories.

I also read this new novella that some desperate sold me when I refused to buy any minis during my first store visit. That was probably the most thrilling story of the SoB.-books so far but at the same time it almost feels like the re-telling of some DH session. It also has the best cover art.

That being said, the fact that you can get all that in under 500 points makes me weep hot blood.

Personally, I'm trying to figure out if I should take 2 battalions or 1, to save on the points. 2 battalions nets me a lot of CP, but if I only take one I can save about 170 points on stuff I don't need to take. My list, as it is:

2 warbosses with powerklaw and kustom shoota

Snikrot

1 weirdboy

2 squads of 15 kommandos, one with powerklaw and one with big choppa

Heavy bolters are good, for some reason now. Plasma is cheaper than melta. Plus you don't have to worry about Gets Hot! anymore if you only shoot it on low charge. But you can over charge them for +1 S, at the risk of getting blown up. Missiles are good too. Your list also seems like it can deal with anything just in case. I don't think you'll have any major issues against anything at 500 points.

>As I said it's everything I have in stock.

Fair enough. I definitely recommend picking up some plasma, though, it's a great weapon for guard now. Also, take a look at guard doctrines when you can, it can drastically change the way you run your army.

>I was surprised too.

One of the things I've realized when writing guard lists is that I run out of things to take before I run out of points. Guard are incredibly cost effect, and compare everything in other armies to what I can take for the same points in a guard list. The standard for me is either one leman russ or 9 mortars. When it comes to orks, the vehicles are too expensive for what they're capable of, especially when it comes to shooting, and the specialist infantry typically too soft. With the way cover works now, it's just not worth it take 17 point lootas or tank huntas, when they die just as easily as a 7 point boy. The only exception (for me) are kommandos, which are only 8 points and very survivable with their infiltration ability, and nobz, which are durable enough to be worth it.

>>415302

The plan is to use the weirdboy to Jump as many of the boyz and nobz as possible. I'm really going to be relying on cover and grot shields to keep the bulk of the army alive, admittedly. If I run into serious anti-infantry I'm going to have problems, unless I manage to tie it up in CC before too long.

Frankly those description to me are meant to say more about Marienburg (((merchants))) than it does about Norscan society.

Of course there are many people that do Chaos worships AND trade, the entirety of the lore for the Chaos Dwarves revolve around that, the main purpose for raiding is slavery, etc... What is describe here is aligned with what a Khornate society would do, they would just walk openly among the imperials that are too "weak" to even put up a fight and would take what they want be it women, gold or goods. The fact that those people give those willingly is just further proof of their weakness, they might agree to barter useless furs for proper steel as one would give a token from a lord to a peasant, add that Khorne teaches that deceit is weakness and they might think they're actually displaying the fairness of the strong.

But just like in 40k chaos worshiping cults mascarade as something harmless (quite sometime even within imperial cults) doesn't mean they're good guys buy a large margin. Norscan should be treated like WHFB "Lost and the Damned regiments" that go from "guys that had little choice but siding with the strongest" to "one minute away from chaos spawn".

Firstly, I have a boyz squad of 10 and 30. Both of them have boss nobs as sergeants.

I use the mob up stratagem to combine them to a single mob of 40 boyz. With two boss nobs. Am I reading that right, that I can have 2 power klaws in a mob?

Secondly, can Killa Kans have Clan Kulturs? I had read somewhere that no, they can't but I'm not seeing the rule that precludes gretchen or killa kans from benefiting from kultur.

The word "eldar" has Norse roots. In Swedish it is literally the plural form of "eld" meaning fire or light:

https://translate.google.ca/#view=home&op=translate&sl=sv&tl=en&text=eldar

which has actually remained unchanged from Old Norse:

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/eldr#Old_Norse

Tolkien borrowed the word Eldar and capitalized it as the name for a race of elves in his fictional elvish language Quenya, which he began creating in 1910:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quenya

Eldar literally means "people of the stars" in Quenya:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sundering_of_the_Elves#Eldar

where the Norse root "eld" meaning fire or light fits very nicely as a reference to stars. For those interested, embedded is an audio recording from 1952 of Tolkien reading a Quenya poem, Namárië, from Lord of the Rings

Tolkien's capitalized "Eldar" has been used in other works such as the Riftwar Saga fantasy novels by Raymond Feist, again to describe a race of elves (apparently without legal problems). The Tolkien Estate also seems to have had no problem with Games Workshop using the name Eldar or their likeness and traits for Warhammer 40K.

All of that being said, the word seems to be most commonly known from the futuristic Eldar, the space elves of Warhammer 40K. But can Games Workshop really lay any claim to the word Eldar itself, as they appear to be doing on their Intellectual Property Policy:

https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Intellectual-Property-Policy

alongside "Space Marine" and other terms? Tolkien capitalized the word in the early 1900s as a race of elves, "people of the stars", and he took the word from the Norse languages which were around during the Viking age over a millennium ago.

After GW's highly controversial and failed attempt to remove a book from Amazon for simply using the term 'space marine' (which has been in use since the 1930s by author Robert Heinlein and others):

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2013/02/trademark-bully-thwarted-spots-space-marine-back-online

they seem to have backed off from legal aggression and have also renamed their armies into specific names that GW can exclusively claim. Space Marines have been officially renamed to Adeptus Astartes, Eldar have been officially renamed to Aeldari, etc.

If a new book or computer game was released that used the term "Eldar" to refer to an elf-like race (assuming that it was quite different from 40K Eldar and in a different setting), do you think GW would attempt any legal action? Do you think they've settled on Aeldari now and would probably leave the name Eldar alone and respect its Norse and Tolkien origins?

#NotMyGodEmperor: Why Are There So Many Actual Fascists in the Warhammer 40K Fandom?

PREVIEW:

>It all started when I saw a picture of Trump photoshopped to be the God-Emperor of Mankind.

>It was last December, when Trump’s campaign was swinging into high gear. I was a young innocent oh those many months ago, but that picture caused a twinge in me. It was a little like enjoying Liar’s Poker (which I do) and then finding out that some Wall Street creeps used it as a guide (which they did). It annoys me when people I dislike share an appreciation for something I like, but I brushed it off.

>But I kept seeing that picture, and similar images, popping up all over the internet. And then after I wrote a particularly divisive article for TMS back in January, I started getting exposed to the less friendly elements of Warhammer 40k’s fanbase and it started to get stuck in my brain. And then I remembered how, back when GamerGate was still a thing that people took seriously, how they would often use repurposed images from Warhammer 40k as propaganda. And some dots started connecting in the back of my brain.

>That’s ridiculous, I told myself. There’s absolutely no way they could be genuinely identifying with the Imperium of Man or its fascist power structure. After all, the Imperium of Man is a parody of fascism, and not a particularly subtle one at that, since the game constantly talks about how much life sucks and how the authoritarianism causes more problems than it solves. They’d have to be blind to not see that Warhammer 40k is… kid…ding.

>Oh. Oh no.

Yes the empire of man might have been imagined as a parody of fascism back in the 80s. As well as the edgy "atheist-empire-the -emperor-wanted" backstory.

But the fact is, that the IoM wouldn't last a single day as a democracy/ sjw-tier political system.

the brutality and strictness is NECESSARY for humanity to survive. Any weakness would not be forgiven by the enemy.

The enemy from outside as well as the enemy from within!

And you need to keep the people in check, because if the empire would lower their grip over the untold trillions of trillions chaos (and CHAOS) would erupt withing hours.

As well as conscription and throwing millions into the meat grinder of eternal warfare. it is necessary for the overall survival of humanity.

No.

Tau fourth sphere got wiped out by the cicatrix maledictum on launch. Fifth sphere had new warp skimming engines on all the ships, against engineer advise the ethereal sent them all off at once. Opened rift into warp.

The Tau created the Greater Good ideology. They have many warp sensitive and manipulating member races. These races' various views of the Greater Good created a gestalt entity, who has many as helping hands as there races.

The Tau who saw the warp were at first horrified, then moved to tears as the god shoved them into real space, then so disgusted at the god's existence that the started racially cleansing the fifth sphere of expansion. All the commanders were deposed when contact was reestablished, but the deed was already done by then. Now there is a wormhole from Tau space to somewhere north east of Ultramar.

If I recall correctly.

I think the overarching theme with the Tau is how fast their tech evolves. They have been nothing more than a fart in the greater timeline of things in 40k, but they already got anything from jet-powered battlesuits to artificial intelligence to high-powered plasma weapons.

The other races may still outdo them in most fields of technology (Imperial titans, Ork genetic engineering, Eldar psykery stuff), but unlike them, the Tau didn't need tens of thousands of years if not more to come up with what they already have.

Considering they're all blanks and the heavy hints that they Eldar somehow are involved in the creation of the Ethereals, they basically follow the Orkz in the theme of being a biological (and by now technical) weapon wildly out of control, even if their reach still is as low as it gets.

Elite is usually limited to scions and stormtroopers. For regular guard regiments you definitely have some difference between storied elite regiments like the Vostroyans and more generic shit, but they're all more on the wall of flesh side.

Plasma is mostly limited, but depending on what your regiment in question has been cleared to requisition and whatever supplies are available, I'm sure you could still have 30k Solar Auxillia style with entire 10 man squads with plasma, in the right circumstances.

Almost certainly the encounter with Samus, in current records, but implications are that at least one of the missing primarch legions had something go down that required hard physical censure.

I had a couple quick questions about necromunda. Are tactics cards still in use since GW stopped selling them? I also wanted to ask if smoke from smoke grenades can have blast template weapons or spray template weapons shot into them.

Here, have a blurry window into their personalities and relations. http://menducia.atspace.com/primarchs/II.html

II High Priestess and X Fortune. Indeed one would be 'highly religious' but in a way that they would understand the warp better than Magnus. Weaker at using, but far more fine tuned. Where Magnus can summon lightning and fire the 2nd can summon coffee. Wise council. Most Primarchs either were offput by his obtuse advice, or gave it high regard.

Fortune? Mix the Lamenters with Cato Sicarius. Highest highs and lowest lows, crass bravado and gutted depression. Would have been Angron's support network, possibly convincing him to take the nails out. Would have been able to get Guillaman to chill out, meaning the reasonable marines of Ultramarines were likely his stock. Most alike Sanguinius.

With the chance of mutiny and inconsistent movement, how should you use the grot mega tank? Big shootas have 36" range to help get into combat earlier, but they lack the punch of the 24" rokkits and KMB. I do have 4 grot tanks and 3 killa kans to support it with.

It’s going to be the only toy where you can list the accessories it does not come with.

Seeing as primaris still cannot take chainswords, Lightning claws, Thunder hammers, heavy bolters, or bikes, terminator armor, or a jump pack.

They should have just made a Gundam style 1/6 plastic kit of a real marine. Then just do what Bandai already does and use the same sprue as a base for countless derivatives with colour swaps and extra sprues added for different loadouts and armour marks. Then they could do a P-Bandai equivalent directly from GW for more obscure variants like Charcarodons and such.

Either way, I'm not putting one of those generic looking sigmarines on my shelf, no thanks.

In other news, pic related. I really hope that Skitarii tank is easy to magnetise so I don't have to buy 3 of each variant.

They're in the process of being colonized by poz, so they can't ideologically justify making sexually attractive warrior-women for teenage boys. Instead it has to be really butch looking warrior-women, for teenage boys.

Well, KD manage to cast pretty nice female faces and their scale is just slightly bigger, though the faces themselves are usually a good match for GW models.

I think it's got a lot to do with the desire to make "badass" wamens, which probably makes it a lot harder to balance the design. Especially since the SoB style don't allow for more outlandish punky aesthetics that you can see in the Necromunda thots, manning up the facial structure is probably one of the few ways to do it. Lorewise it makes more sens for them to look like that as well, but yea, If I'm building any SoB I think I'll stick to the helmets and pop in a spare KD head here and there.

>>418419

Really? Looks like a pretty nice blend of retro scifi, WW2 landing vehicles and established Admech aesthetics to me. The turret seems to be open topped only though, that really bugs me.

So finally Knight upgrades (Missiles, heads and fists?), Porphyrions (Sprues indicate 2 per box and no additional loadouts beside the turbolasers), the reaver carapace weapons previously teased, as well as a bit of terrain (Seems to be all single pieces so I would assume forgeworld rather than plastic), terminals for named titans and stratagems and dice for both traitors and loyalists. Some new light scout titan (Why?) and a bigger than Warlord but not-quite Imperator (Also why?) is also in the pipeline.

They also completely butchered the Cawdor exectioner. No more hood and now only one noose around his neck. Way to bow out to SJW retards. Fuck you I'm converting my own. Enforcer gang is and Badlands book coming next though, possibly more Squats and Spyrers eventually.

Really, GW? If they really wanted new models that look more modern for the humans, that arent 30K; Then just make Warhammer 50K instead, in which either the Imperium fractures, or just dies, but with whatever human faction that appear after that starting to discover & research technology again, or at least stop using another aesthetic than the imperial one.

They've already made 41k, and the Imperium has fractured, at least physically. All they need to do now is to make a a new civil war and they're pretty much there. Shitty plot anyway, I'll just continue to ignore every book and fluff after the siege of Cadia.

Also, that tank isn't really "modern" either, it's just horrendously ugly. It's as if they took a modified landraider chassis, slapped a lot of glue to it and shook it around in a box full of guns and missiles and bits.

It's why I'm asking, I geniunely thought I just happened on a fanfic copy something.

Just so we're clear, the first of the HH Primarchs novels, that starts off with the smurfs fighting orcs in a place called Thoas, and has the 22nd chapter get buttdevasted because they got an outsider as a chapter master, has this line?

Then the file uploaded to there must've been tampered with. A quick search for "Lord of ultramar anal" and I get a redditor commenting on it that specifically notes he's DL'd the book from a torrent.

I skimmed through the reviews at Goodreads and found nothing. As shitty a NPCfag place as that is, there's bound to be someone mentioning it if it's actually in the real book, if not in condemnation then some tranny faggot praising how progressive it is.

Speaking of this kind of stuff though, I found some funny things in the Titanicus book, pics realted. I seem to recall a similar thing in one of Abnetts' HH books, where a fourteenth company of the eighty-eight expeditionary fleet or something is mentioned. There's also a scene in the Titanicus book where a nigger admech menial is talking to a white woman in the background, and the narrating character mentions something about how it's funny seeing admech and imperial personnel trying to mingle even though everyone knows they are separate entities that can never come together. That woman also later gets evaporated by a turbolaster.

So I don't know, is he placing little easter eggs telling us that he is also eagerly waiting for our uncle to come back from the moon to liberate us from the servants of Satan? Yea, I'm gonna go with that.

Welp, I got bamboozled. The audiobook confirms this.

I guess I'm not downloading anything from Z-library anymore.

Why would anyone do this, though? It seems like they've added one page to the book just to have Guilliman powerfist this guy. Why?
