  • So basically If you are a human there is no normal life? Either you become a soldier and fight or you become a sacrifice for the emperor, is that right?

    • With the state of the galaxy 40k is in,Yehp, pretty much, 40k is Grim Dark for a reason. But personally, if I was one of the many unfortunate normal humies in that setting, I'd rather be a guard, at least then you have the option to go out fighting 😅

  • For the Mechanicus, except for the Custodes, they have the best weapons, ships, vehicles, etc... available The Sister of Silence are Pariah, because well... Of the Pariah gene, meaning that heir presence isn't "heavily suppressed", but completely absent They are literally invisible to demons because of it, only Chaos SM/Greater deamons can see them, and if they see them, they will take soo much damage by only being near them that they can't do shit. They are the ultimate weapons against chaos, they could fuck a chaos Primarch 1v1 sooooo badly, but they need to stay in the palace, and due to that, it isn't invaded by chaos, because they know well that they can't enter when they're here. And yes, they have the same genes as the Necron's Pariah and the Cullexuses. They are, in fact, peoples collected by Necrons and then turned into Pariah. Hence the name

  • The one thing that drew me to the Battletech universe over 40k was that 40k players were completely dismissive of hope in even the slightest periphery. Cynical and aggressively dismissive; when I was a teen nerd, they wouldn't even let me try to learn the game. On the other hand, BT was accessible not because of its dystopian themes similar but because the players were simply nicer people and the bar of entry was considerably less in terms of the meager dollars a teen might possess. In hindsight, I am glad I stuck with BT over the years as my favorite dystopian universe. It's simply more fulfilling and less disconnected even though it is all the same a sci-fi fantasy.

But we always learn the things in reality.

They are relatively cheap,or you can just read books,lore videos... There are videos on youtube how to build cheap and still efective army.

  • 7:08 maybe even triple S tier or beyond. Emps is the most powerful psyker in the galaxy, bar none. Even more powerful than any psyker the eldar has produced in 40k. Some of Emps "humble" feats include creating a miniature sun in the webway to prevent a daemonic horde invasion from entering Terra during the heresy. Teleporting a whole planetary core to the warp to prevent it from going nuclear in the material universe. And the most important one, powering the astronomicon with his psychic might and will alone, so it's light encompasses almost the whole galaxy. The man is pretty a much a god but in name ( okay, maybe not in the current setting of 40k, but he still has his limits) he's only Nerf is that he's not truly omnipotent, he even admit to this himself " ...one cannot be all powerful and all seeing at the same time" - Emps

Adepta Sororitas: If Nuns were trained as Amazons with a certain level of camp. The Grey Knights: Nothing like the smell of acceptable loses in the morning. Imperial Knights: I! AM! IRON MAN! Adeptus Custodes: Get down Mr. President! Officio Assassinorium: Ah yes, the many different flavors of death. Vindicare Temple: I have waited 5 days for a perfect one-shot kill.

This question was like a nuke of knowledge that I was happy to trigger right in my own brain

When I was a teenager, I would have agreed with you that playing evil is exciting - baddass, now it’s boring at age 30. I like to control good ones better, and create value. Thank you for your effort, I know how much more than hours of material to put together. More days, more weeks of work.

    • Evil is not much specific word. Everyone of them is evil,but often justified. You can just play some faction which can be grey (I don´t think that it is possible to say that anyone serving Slaanesh would be atleast a little bit good) for example Imperium and although they are ,,bad",you can just focus on heroic people from all imperial parts of army,which just do whatever they can to help mankind. There is many ultimately good figures in lore.

  • I suspected this was a whites only universe. Thanks for confirming it captain. I suspected it for many years. Just looking at all the art. Caucasian as can be. Not even going to try get you to understand how crushing that can be to young teenager who is African-American growing up in a predominately white locale. His friends dig it he gets into it then one day he sees the writing on the wall or lack of it. Might seem like bull..... to you. It would have nice to be able to get into the lore feel included. I would have told dont bother. Oh yeah. Nice web page to use in the background to represent "normal black" also liked the whitecastle comment. Real nice captain. May I suggest reading any Chinese sci-fi novel. We are not in there future either. But start with a book called Chung Kuo. Written by an English author. They directly address how they got rid of family and people like me "metaphorically speaking". Have fun glorifying in slaughter and evil. Tossing my black library books tomorrow. I always thought the weapons and army were pretty stupid but the story kept. No more. Bolter? Ha! Chain swords? Ok good idea......
