Banegryn: Theatricality and deception are powerful agents to the uninitiated… but we are initiated, aren’t we Konrad? Members of the Imperium of man!
[Lifts Konrad Curze by the neck]
Banegryn: And you betrayed us!
Konrad Curze: You were excommunicated… by the Imperium of Man
[Banegryn viciously beats Konrad and throws him to the ground]
Banegryn: I AM the Imperium of Man, and I’m here to fulfill The Emperors destiny!
Banegryn: You fight like a younger man, with nothing held back. Admirable but mistaken.
[Konrad uses sorcery to cut the lights]
Banegryn: Oh, you think Chaos is your ally. But you merely adopted the Warp; I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the Imperiums Light until I was already a man, by then it was salvation to me !
[grabs Konrad from the shadows and continues to beat him]
Banegryn: The Daemons betray you, because they belong to me!
[repeatedly punches Konrad in the face, breaking his cowl]
Banegryn: I will show you where I have made my home while preparing to bring justice. Then I will break you.
[hits detonator, blowing a hole into the bottom of Konrad’s Fortress]
Banegryn: Your precious legion armory, gratefully accepted! We will need it.
[Konrad desperately stands and swings at Banegryn]
Banegryn: Ah, yes… I was wondering what would break first…
[lifts Konrad high]
Banegryn: Your spirit, or your body?
[slams him on his knee]
Oh my god… this is so relevant to me.
March in March - I don’t usually post political stuff, but if like me you are in Australia and disappointed with the weasel that is running the show, you should check this out. There is Marches in most major cities across the nation.
That vehicle looks pretty epic. Looks like GW can design other things too rather than just the same boxy looking tanks.
I am not sold on the tank. Hopefully it is just a really bad picture, but it looks like it should either be fully wheeled or a half track, the four separate tracks just isn’t doing it for me.
This is pretty exciting! Does this mean a name change for the Imperial Guard or just a new blanket name to accommodate IG, PDFs, Inquisitorial pilgrims, Militias etc? Tell me what ya’ll know!
It’s primarily a table top game that’s played with 28cm tall “miniatures”.
If you sell your soul and body you might have enough money to afford the actual hobby.
What’s enjoyable about it is the background lore, or at least I enjoy it. I’m super passionate about it, I don’t know why I clung to it so hard, but I did. I can debate/talk about it like it’s my holy scripture or something, it’s kind of pathetic. It’s a bleak, depressing, dark universe and setting. Its own tagline is “In the grimdarkness of the far future, there is only war”.
It’s got a lot of races.
- Demi-god super humans in armor made of fuckyou, that crusade like it’s the 11th century
- metallic skeleton people that are general automatons that want to strip your flesh and wear it
- giant space lizards bugs that just want to eat your entire planet, no really
Orkz. Because why can’t orkz advance past a fantasy setting?They can! Just not… well
- "Better than you" space elves that are scared of dying and really old, like "This forest is old, old as balls" old.
- Other space elves that are notoriously darker and “eviler” than the other space elves and want to introduce you to a level of BDSM that is on steroids, and then they drain your soul.
A cult of “humans” devoted to machines so much that they gladly amputate their own ears and replace them with augmentics to hear better, NO REALLY. Each machine should be worshipped. PRAISE THE OMNISSIAH. 101110111.
there is even a faction that are blatantly inspired by 80/s90’s japanese mecha. they wear cool mecha-like suits and their skin is blue and they’re socialist.
If you’re into the tabletop, you collect these armies and play with dice and rulers and if you’re great at math, NOT CALCULATORS.
If you’re wise and don’t want to spend a dime you admire the hobby from afar and stick to the growing video-game market and read the novels from Black Library.
It’s a sci-fi setting from the 80’s made by old British guys. It’s a bleak setting that takes every theme to the extreme. Humanity is the underdog, despite being so populous that the dehumanization of death is a major issue. I wrote a thesis paper on it. There’s a lot of different factions and groups and races and such, and everyone is pretty bad, there is no set ‘good’ or ‘bad’ guys.
If you want to get into it, I recommend you check out Blacklibrary.com, there’s a lot of novels. A LOT. If you need a book recommendation, or an author recommendation, ask.
Was I clear enough?
ladies and gentlemen…*unveals curtain* my
blood sweat and tearsfandom.
alright everyone, now you know how to explain ‘us’ to people.
WHAT? NO LOVE FOR THE GUARD?
*Puts on commissar hat and coat*
ALRIGHT LISTEN UP!
In the very likely occurrence that your home world will be invaded, or that you some how end up seeing combat (very likely), the people you’re going to see most are those brave sons of bitches in the Imperial Guard.
Who are the Imperial Guard you ask?
I should shoot you for your heretical line of questioning, but I shall educate you first. The Imperial Guard is the the Hammer of the Emperor.
We may not have all that fancy pancy nimbly pimbly gizmos and gadgets that those Cog boys have, and we may not have all that hoighty toighty armor of the Space Marines, but we have man power and tanks. Throne do we have tanks. Little tanks, big tanks, tanks as big as your fucking house (If not bigger!)
Don’t believe me?
Not to discredit our own boys of course. Our own troopers are tough as nails. In fact, one of the commissars tore off an ork’s arm and beat him half to death with it, WHILE HE WAS MISSING ONE OF HIS OWN I MIGHT ADD.
TL;DR - WE ARE THE EMPEROR’S
SPEEDBUMPHAMMER OF FURY!
Im just amazed everyone missed that he said 28cm and not 28mm…
