    [–] Take me back to 2005 Vyzantinist 1 points ago in gaming

    Life, uh, finds a way.

    [–] What does $1000 get you for your hobby? Vyzantinist 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Pretty much, but they also do large/expensive pieces like Primarchs, superheavy tanks, and Titans.

    They sell deluxe/expensive Warhammer minis. Fielding a like-for-like army of Forge World miniatures, such as a Horus Heresy army, is obscenely expensive.

    I was thinking more a decent sized Heresy army!

    For your own good, do not even consider visiting Forge World...

    2005 was an awful year for me. Got dumped by my first long-term girlfriend, kicked out of housing by my brother, dirt poor and failing my classes at university, but what kept me going, bizarrely, was GTA: San Andreas. The gameplay was so engaging, the trademark humor brought real laughs out of me, and the soundtrack was epic. I still have most, if not all, of K-DST on my playlist.

    I'd have probably gone bonkers that year if it wasn't for San Andreas. That and a shit load of vodka too.

    [–] If it were up to you, which chapter would replace the Ultramarines as the poster boys of the Space Marines Vyzantinist 5 points ago in 40kLore

    The Salamanders being 'nice' is more a meme than the actual truth. The Salamanders aren't necessarily 'nice' to the detriment of their duties; they are simply mindful of (needless) civilian casualties where other Chapters may simply shrug and mention 'collateral damage', if they even give a shit. Sure, they aren't as ruthless and indifferent towards human life as, say, a hardline Inquisitor would like, but then, Chapters for just that kind of work already exist.

    I think the Sallies would make a great runner-up in the "poster boys for the Astartes" competition.

    Crossover with the Wolfman? Fanfic was crazy back in the day.

    [–] Carrie Henn and Sigourney Weaver in 1986 Aliens was Henn's only acting performance and won a Saturn Award for Best Performance. Still friends she says "what you see on screen is genuinely how we feel about each other" Vyzantinist 3 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    “Why do they tell kids that?”

    Despite having owned the film on digital format for years now I don't know why I've never thought to put subtitles on for this and just assumed, since watching it on VHS decades ago, that Newt said "what did they tell kids (back) then?" as if asking if Ripley told Amanda about monsters.

    Thank you for clearing that up.

    [–] During the Great Crusade, why didn't the Iron Warriors simply modify their combat doctrine so as to make their careers more tolerable? Also, why didn't they ever invest in better PR? Vyzantinist 1 points ago in 40kLore

    As per the comment from his sister, below, Perturabo is just inherently a sulker. He's like the jilted lover that secretly expects an apology, then gets outraged when he receives one. From the Siege series at least, Perturabo has a hard time taking compliments, and assumes he's being secretly mocked...then gets angry when no one compliments him.

    [–] Assuming BL gets around to a Scouring series, what would you like to see? Vyzantinist 8 points ago in 40kLore

    I just feel that they don't achieve anything

    I was going to make a thread on this. Save your thoughts for it! ;)

    I just felt like the Shattered Legions got a helluva lot of "screentime" for doing comparatively little. I will say I hope the Iron Fathers at least get a smackdown for selling out Meduson.

    knee knight

    The knights who say "knee"?

    [–] Assuming BL gets around to a Scouring series, what would you like to see? Vyzantinist 6 points ago in 40kLore

    Oh. I thought you were joking. I felt like they had a disproportionate amount of exposure in the Heresy series.

    [–] [Book Excerpt|Ahriman Unchanged] Rewards of the second Rubric Vyzantinist 1 points ago in 40kLore

    True but there is also the 13 company and Lucius also sometimes deals with packs of them, they provide a good amount of his ships.

    I think it could be either, tbh. It's been a while since I've read the trilogy, but from what I remember, there's nothing that confirms or denies they're 13th Company, other than that they're Space Wolves in the Eye.

    In addition in Unchanged Astraeos warband was hidden his actions thought to be Amons gathering so both books takes place in the same time at least for the first few chapters of both then Prospero get's invaded and he goes on his space hulk to hunt them down.

    This is one of the few times "the Warp did it" is put to good effect. As Astraeos explains, the whispers of "the rise of a great sorcerer" refers to both Amon and himself, but because of the timeless nature of the Warp, Ahriman dismisses it as just an echo of Amon's rise.
