    52 KB HOLY FUCKING SHIT ITS THE RETURN OF HIVE FLEET NIDHOGGR! Ragnasal !!69YZM9mjEHH 11/17/11(Thu)13:40 No.16948558  

    The rock you call your home is nothing more than a morsel.
    The skies shall rain fire as a herald to our approach.
    Your very lands shall quake and tremble as we slumber within its crumbling shell.
    Your fields shall burn and your skies shall be choked out with caustic fumes, as we awaken to devour your world.
    The Hive Fleet Nidhoggr consumes this planet from below, and your hopes of survival drag on far too late as we begin to feed.

    Anywho folks, its been awhile since the 'Great Summer of /tg/ Actually Got Shit Done', but I figured I may as well make a revival thread for all things /tg/ 40,000.

    Same as usual: Discuss homebrews, write lore, post drawfaggotry, come up with tabletop/Dark Heresy rules and whatnot.

    'Rule of Cool' mostly. It was just a random idea I pitched out during the surge of Rites of Battle homebrew chapters, and it took off. I thought it just added a bit of flavor to the Tyranids.
    >> Anonymous 11/17/11(Thu)14:28 No.16948870

    It was a twist on 'nids that ate mineral matter out of your planets crust instead of the biological goo that the people living on it are made of. So they would just burn fucking everything with lava and stuff, and then eat the planet itself. Like the dragons from that christian bale movie, but tyranids.

    What this guy said.

    And this. It was an attempt to make the Tyranids have a radically different storyline and tactics, outside of 'Hivemind thinks this way, so is different from this Hivemind'. It was also a way to try and make some of the useless tyranid units become useful.
    >> Anonymous 11/17/11(Thu)14:32 No.16948894

    >> Ragnasal !!69YZM9mjEHH 11/17/11(Thu)14:51 No.16948987

    Leviathans Rest is where Hive Fleet Nidhoggr originated, after the Salamanders tried to nuke the ever loving hell out of the Nids.

    A few nids survived. Epic writefaggotry in the following links:
    This story deals with the evolution of the new strain from the Tyranid/Narrators point of view.
    This story deals with the impact of the HFN from the Guardsman/Space Marines point of view.

    While we're talking about Hive Fleet Nidhoggr, I was looking through my 5E 'Nids-dex I got a few days ago, and realized that Pyrovores are now a thing.
    How much better would Nidhoggr's Pyros be, considering that they are already tectonic/magma-focused 'Nids?
    >> Hive Fleet Nidhoggr !!1rirzLttJkv 11/17/11(Thu)17:57 No.16949957
    I've never actually gotten the time to look at the Pyrovores stats. What exactly is ineffective about it?
    >> Ad-libbed Crunch Idea Fireman Prime 11/17/11(Thu)18:02 No.16949979
    From what I know, it usually ends up where the whole Brood ends up suicide-bombing due to the fact that it has to get into melee to use it's template attack, and that it gets swamped by any surviving infantry or anti-tank nearby.
    A Nidhoggr Pyrovore, however, would fuck shit up royally. Since everything big in the fleet seems to have Flame Sprayers, the Pryovore's template would probably be 1.5 times as large by default and have another +2 to the strength or AP (depends on the loadout: Ultrathermal Secretions or Pressurized Gout) as a biomorph upgrade.
    >> Hive Fleet Nidhoggr !!1rirzLttJkv 11/17/11(Thu)18:11 No.16950022
    If you can write up the stats for it, the Norn Queen will catalog it with the other bio-forms that have been suggested... Which means I'll simply add it to the 1d4chan wiki if its balanced enough to make the Pyrovore a viable unit.

    What would happen if they had a Chaos companion?
    A group with genetic failures just as as great, but earning their scorn among their Chaotic brethren rather than from the Imperium?
    This requires further development.
    A focus on more heavy metals and weapons fuels in consumption results in bioferrous plating and alterations in the therm-chem production process, resulting in bio-gunpowder weapons and bio-cannons/bio-howitzers. Nice.

    Wait, I just read through the archieves and if I'm getting this right then these Glistening Host guys were a Blood Angel's decendant chapter that styled themselves after pre-revolution french nobility, who sold their souls to slaanesh to prevent falling to the Black Rage, and in doing so lost their ability to get angry but also became huge sadomasochists? So basically they're like pic related, if pic related was a cenobite in gleaming white porcelain power armor.

    It appears that our good friend Indonesian Gentleman was the Op of the Waaagh Tang Klan, so all credit goes to him. Proceeding with repost...

    You know what? Almost everybody else and their god-emperor (except the Tau) have at least one custom /tg/ chapter/faction/group fluffed out. So let's decide on an Ork WAAAGGGHHH via dice rolls, as most of these other chapters/what-have-you also did.
    First, let's roll for the dominant Clan in this waaagh. Roll a 1d6:
    1 - Bad Moonz
    2 - Blood Axes
    3 - Deathskullz
    4 - Evil Sunz
    5 - Goffs
    6 - Snakebitez

    On the planet of Cobbokamp, there resided a great many species of flora and fauna. From giant wild Groxs, down to the carnivorous man-eating plants that resided in the various woods that dot her landscape. But there was another threat that hampered the local population, in the shape of feral orks. The Orks made it into a habit of raiding the local hab-domes, as is expected. But even the simple minded Orks knew that something was astray when the skies burned with a massive meteor shower. This is the story of Foyah Chief, the Nob who rose to become the Warboss of the Foyah Boyz Clan.
    It all started in the middle of a raid upon Habitat Dome Epsilon. The local PDF was holding off the green tide at the gates, when the first meteor slammed into the roof. The debris alone crushed several buildings, and a meteor slammed through into an Imperial Command Center. All communications with the local forces were cut off, and the Orks penetrated the domes defenses with the unstoppable might of the Foyah Chiefs Waaagh!

    “Oy Boss, wuts dem fings ova dere?” One of the Boyz shouted towards Foyah Chief. He was pointing towards a cluster of odd-looking Imperial vehicles. They looked like bricks on wheels, with a hose on their sides and a ladder on top of them. It would appear that they were next to a firestation, located within the Hab-dome.
    “I dunno, but I likez da kulla. Redz meanz it goes fasta boyz! Lootz dem and dat buildin’ deyz at! Waaagh!”
    The Ork ransacking lasted a few minutes, whilst the Boyz spray-painted effigies of Mork and Gork on the firetrucks, and welding some ‘more orky bitz’ onto their exterior. Several Boyz came out of the station, laughing and cackling to themselves while trying on several of the fire-retardant suits, many of them ill-fitting. Foyah Chief came out of the building wearing a full suit, a massive ‘Jaws of Life’ strapped to his left arm, and a firemans axe in his left. He was also donning a bright red firehouse hat. “Iz found me a new hat, boyz!”
    A Mad Boy was drinking from one of the hoses attached to the side of the truck, before spitting the contents out. “Deyz nuttin in deze hoses but wata! Dats nawt a propa drink I finks! Fill dis fing with Burna fluidz, dat wayz we can stayz nice and krumpy.”

    Work T'getha' Now...: The Foyahfoytahz are astoundingly cooperative (for Orkz) at times. Knowing that some foyahz are just too big for any one squad to 'extinguish', groups of Foyahboyz will often converge on a target, shouting orders and throwing out ideas on how to stop the oncoming threat. This comraderie makes the Foyahboyz markedly 'courageous' in the face of even the largest foes, knowing that they'll think of something in time to save their skins...
    --As long as a unit with 'Work T'getha' Now...' retains squad/mob cohesion, it gains an additional +1 Ld for each other unpinned unit within 6". If this would give it a leadership of 11+, the unit gains Fearlessness until its leadership is lowered to 10 or less.

    Foyahtrukkz coming up next.

    Composition: 1-3 Foyahtrukkz --- 45 Points per Model
    Unit Type: Dedicated Transports
    Vehicle Type: Fast, Enclosed

    BS: 3
    Armor: Front: 10, Side: 10, Rear: 10

    Special Rules: Ramshackle, Put 'Er Out!

    Wargear: Skorcha, Red Paint Job

    Transport Capacity: 12 models (Mega Armor counts for 2)
    -Replace Skorcha with Big Shoota: Free
    -Can take following:
    --Armour Plates: +10 Points
    --Reinforced Ram: +5 Points
    --Boarding Plank: +5 Points
    --Wreckin' Ball: +10 Points
    --Grot Riggers: +5 Points

    Got Da' Whole Krew: Foyahfoytahz in particular know just how to pile in, where to hold on, and how not to fall off Foyahtrukkz in order to get the most out of their ride.
    --If Foyahfoytahz are loaded into a Foyahtrukk, the transport capacity is raised to 18 models. However, the additional six models hang on the outside of the vehicle and are not protected by the vehicle's armor. Represent this by placing them alongside the Foyahtrukk and moving them at the same speed of the vehicle. If the transport is assaulted, the models on the outside of the transport automatically become the target of the assault. If they are all destroyed, the attackers make another assault against the Foyahtrukk immediately.

    Put 'Er Out!: The Foyahboyz krewing the Foyahtrukks know more than enough about fire and heat to know that vehicles shouldn't have them coming out of the engines or guns or whatnot. They know just how to change gears, smack plates, and stomp on embers in order to mitigate the flames and get back to driving. They might even get lucky and slap a wheel back on enough to keep moving...
    --If the Foyahtrukk suffers an Immobilised hit, roll a d6. If the result is 5+, the vehicle can still move, but at half speed for the rest of the game.
    --If the FOyahtrukk suffers a Crew Stunned hit, roll a d6. If the result is 5+, the vehicle may move on its next turn, but at half speed. The Foyahtrukk cannot shoot.

    There we go. Hope that isn't too bad.

    Since we're in the process of creating an Ork Waaugh! designed specifically as a humorous counter to the fire 'nids in this very thread, why not writefag an encounter with them?

    Speaking of the Foyahboyz! Squigs. The runtherders of this Ork group specifically single out those less frightened of fire than others. After a few generations of Ork-observed breading, they now have a small breed of squigs that are not only unafraid of fire, but fucking LOVE IT. Getting these kinds of squig to race around on a burning battlefield isn't the chore, it's trying to get them off before they burn themselves to death. Physically they're like any other of the small, almost pet-like squigs, but their skins are unusually spotted. The Foyahboyz call them Dalmashunz.

    <On-board a Nidhoggr Hive Ship in Orbit around [Classified], 18 hourse into IGNITION event>

    The being opened it's eyes for the first time, vaguely aware of its upside down orientation. It stretched its limbs to the membrane encasing it and cut its way out of the sac, flowing forth onto the moist and fleshy interior of the Brood Nest. It stood up on its legs with instinctive ease as it remembered what it was. It have never opened its eyes before or felt the mucus membrane of the ship beneath its feet, but it drew its consciousness from the hive mind and awakened its own synapses in response. The newly created biomorph, what a human might call a Hive Tyrant due to its resemblance, threw back its head and let out of roar that echoed through the tubes and compartments of the ship.

    The corpulent forms of the Norn Queens, little more than deft tentacles and precision bone instruments attached to a massive sac of organs and refined bioresources, flowed back from their greatest accomplishment in their short time among the stars and let all the eyes of the mind marvel at their work. A new Hive Lord to lead a new force, unlike any other.

    This world below was a first but it would certainly not be the last. And so the hive mind had proceeded with the utmost care in deployment, curiously examined every facet of its attack, explored every tactic and relearned the ways of bloody battle in this first world where the inhabitants struck back. And from this need for battle and hunger for flesh was born a creature of new design. A creature with the knowledge of the old ways before the flames, hidden within the genetic memory of the hive, as well as mastery over the new and fearsome designs of the swarm. This champion would have unparalleled autonomy, carrying the webwork of the hive mind on a barren world below as it lead the swarm in a fury of smoke and blades.
    >> Anonymous 11/19/11(Sat)22:37 No.16967221
    The creature did not react as the tendril wrapped around it and pushed it into the contracting tube in the side of the room. It merely waited, knowing it was to be encased and placed inside a specially prepared and disguised Mycetic Spore for immediate combat deployment. It did not fear death, for its mind would always exist within the hive, waiting to be reborn again on another, for another battle, for another feast. It's sacs of flammable ichor oozed in excitement, lighting its lashwhip aflame as it contacted the air. It could already smell the bloodshed below.

    Unflinching it waited as the amniotic fluid filled in the containment chamber. It did not panic as it's lungs were engulfed and breathed in the gelatinous broth. The ooze thickened and the beast found itself paralyzed, drifting slowly in a state of suspended animation. It's mind crackled across the synapses of its brothers still forming in the hollowed recesses of the hive ship. Each of them would become a living appendage of the hive mind, the embodiment of all the hunger and instinct of the brood. They were all within him now, those minds waiting to be born, watching and learning so that they would be born with all the collective intelligence and combat experience of every veteran of a thousand invasions. With a mental nod the Spore bowed to the will of its overlord and launched itself through the membranous barrier before it and out into the cold vacuum beyond. It drifted for but a moment before bracing itself. The thickened fluids within it solidifed in the absence of the mother's warmth to preserve the integrity of it's favored child. As much dead as alive, the two vessels plummeted, one within the other, to the world below. But then after a few moments both roared into life again as the atmosphere ignited the outermost musculature of the mycoloth. The whole hive watched through the beast's eyes as it crashed into the rock below.
    >> Anonymous 11/19/11(Sat)22:46 No.16967258
    First impact would be a disorienting experience for most, but for the warrior of shadow and flame it was an experience it held many memories of, even though they were not its own. After the vessel halted completely, the Tyrant ripped out of the side of the spore, pushing aside its chitinous exoskeleton from within, and leapt to the ground below. It scratched its claws into the soft earth and only took a single sniff of the air to determine where the most bloodshed was as it search the web of thought for the best prey. It reached out through the synapses of the brood and flexed the muscles of its hundreds of bodies.

    A million voices roared as one. The very earth trembled and cracked as its hungering mouths clawed their way to the surface. A building crumbled in the distance and the resulting crater pulled the nearby organics into its stony maw. The fiend that would one day be known as the Balor turned and charged off towards its new found quarry, hungry to join the din of battle.

    As it approached its dorsal vents began to billow forth plumes of smoke and ash. By the time it reached the Imperial front line it was almost completely cloaked in the shadows and flickering glow of red hot cinders and blackened charcoal. It fired a bolt of scorching organic plasma from its Incinerator Canon and hit an armored vehicle leaving its smoldering husk immobile, but it craved closer more intimate combat. It spread its massive and powerful wings and with a powerful thrust leaped into the skies above before plummeting down onto its first unsuspecting victim below. It's uncoiling whip of flame would be the last thing the poor marine ever saw. The lick of the whip cleaved the pathetic creature in half. Engulfed in shadows it folded its wings down and stepped slowly from the ashen cloud it had left in its wake. Two remaining adversaries stared forth, defiant, one of flesh and one of metal. Both would serve the purposes of the brood.
    >> Anonymous 11/19/11(Sat)23:07 No.16967366
    The scavengers crawled from the ash and encircled their prey, as others were doing to the last isolated pockets of resistance all across the world. They wanted nothing more than to descend and feed but the Hivelord held them at bay. These ones would be his and his alone. He needed to learn the nature of his foe and his own capabilities so that this instinct might be imprinted into the millions of copies of himself waiting to be born miles above.

    The dreadnought was the first to move, errupting at the nearest figure with it's assault cannon. The Ravener did not even try to defend itself, its instincts held in reserve by the Tyrant's indomitable will. It exploded into a burst of molten blood lighting the wrist mounted weapon of the venerated warrior with a red glow of intense heat. A dozen warriors aimed their weapons but held their fire.

    Now it was the turn of the beast. It lashed forward with it's whip and grabbed the already super heated weapon, pulling the dreadnought closer as it's bonesword flew in a wide sweeping horizontal arch.

    The dreadnought deftly caught the blow with its free hand as the marine began his own charge. Throwing aside the empty bolter he drew his combat knife lunging into the beast with all the fury he could muster. The knife struck him from behind but was deflected uselessly by the thick metallic carapace of the tyrant. The beast, looking upon this foolish human with the eyes of its brood, effortlessly spread its wings and knocked the marine from his feet.

    Refocusing on the dreadnought now locked in combat it fired its Incinerator at point blank range into the left shoulder of the helpless warrior to soften the metal shell before leaning forward and ripping it apart with its teeth. The metal nearly held but with the sound of metal on metal, a bloodcurdling scream, and a sickening crunch the beast ripped the arm free and tossed it into the waiting horde of its lesser brethren to be consumed. It's sword freed, it began hacking relentlessly into the man of metal until it ceased its pitiful struggles.

    It stopped its merciless attacks only to glide aside as a bolter flew through the air towards where its head had been a moment before. The beast had spied the man's attempt a second before, reflected in the perception of the gathered witnesses. Turning to the smaller and much less intimidating foe, it loosed its whip once again as flames erupted through the air. But the marine dropped to the ground to avoid the heat of the lash, then rolled to the side to avoid the following blow. He struggled to his feet as the tyrant leveled it's cannon on the tiny fool. It was weak and it's genetics were of no use to the brood. It would serve better reduced to it's elementary components. But as the beast began to flex its chemical sacs to ignite the bio plasma within the human did an unthinkable thing. It charged. Right into the tyrant, its knife again steady it its hand. With an unparalleled fury at all he had lost he plunged the combat knife into the glowing sac of the cannon, causing an explosion of fiery chemicals as they rapidly ignited int the air. The marine was instantly incinerated.

    The hive panicked. The synapse web was severed as their master fell to the ground wrapped in his dark wings. Instinct nearly drove them all to flee back underground. But them the grip returned. The gathered hive writhed in pain as the rage of their master ignited their very synapses with psychic backlash.

    The Balor stood up.

    It's glorious red hide was covered in black soot and festering burns left gaping wounds where molten fluids oozed forth. Around it was nothing but ash. No trace of anything but ash remained around it within the crater. Everything was blackened in a fiery inferno. Only the boiling marrow of cracked and blackened bones interrupted the roar of the flames.

    The Tyrant looked upon what its wrath had unleashed. The marine had inadvertently triggered a psychic awakening within the warp-touched beast. The flames had consumed both man and tyranid, flesh and steel alike.

    This was the power of ultimate destruction. The power of the dragon. The power of the Nidhoggr. A power that would need to be tempered and honed.

    The Balor spread its wings and took flight towards the nearest catacomb where it would return to the reclamation pool. The Hive had lost much, but much had been learned too. And in time, both the living and the dead return to the earth. And the earth would be consumed. The Brood was pleased.

    Ehhh. Sheta is okay, though it doesn't really roll of the tongue.

    But the idea of Necrons actively decreasing temperature seems meh to me.

    I'd rather they just appear frozen and icy.

    How about this. I'm sure Necrons have some form of terraforming technology. Maybe on one of their tombworlds, it malfunctioned. When the Necrons awoke, it started dropping the planet's temperature. Within weeks the world is in an Ice Age. The Necrons themselves, coming from the source of this freezing, are ice mummies.

    I'm liking these Mr Freeze Necrons already. Maybe have their Flayed Ones look like Wendigos, because they wear the white pelts of the planet's savage fauna. On the rare occasion that they wear flesh other than the Wendigos, said flesh would look black with frostbite, obscured by white snow and frost that's accumulating on them.

    Here's an idea: Somehow, during their long hibernation, these Necrons' necrodermis bodies (or one of their Cryptek techs) malfunctioned, making them suck heat from their surroundings. The whole tomb complex is affected, and soon the whole death world became an icy nightmare.
    Or maybe the rapidly-expanding cold wave only happened when they wake up from their slumber?
    And for their leader, I'm thinking he's once an accomplished Necrontyr general or lord, who used to utilize cold weather to his advantage.
    He is known as the Winter Lord. Fear his freezing cold, that echo the heat death of the universe.

    Sounds pretty nifty. I like the idea of Wendigo Necrons.

    >he Weendigo was gaunt to the point of emaciation, its desiccated skin pulled tautly over its bones. With its bones pushing out against its skin, its complexion the ash gray of death, and its eyes pushed back deep into their sockets, the Weendigo looked like a gaunt skeleton recently disinterred from the grave. What lips it had were tattered and bloody [....] Unclean and suffering from suppurations of the flesh, the Weendigo gave off a strange and eerie odor of decay and decomposition, of death and corruption.

    Maybe these Necrons are heavily Flayer mentality. They need the flesh of others so much that it comes off as an abysmal hunger to others.

    Maybe their broken necrodermis' causing the freezing is actually painful to them. Not in the same sense as we would feel pain, but they don't like it.

    I'm imagining a Guardsmen firing until empty at a shadow moving closer to him in the midst of a blizzard. When the shadow is close enough to be seen properly, it's a Necron Flayer reaching out to the screaming, horrified Guardsmen.

    Wow, thread is still alive. . .

    Okay, contributin . .

    Suggestion: Lets use both Indonesian Gentleman and Anons idea.
    Scenario: the Necrons of Tomb World ________?(Sheta was denied, any suggestions Nidhoggr?) hae managed to become the very embodiments of frost that they are today due to a malfunction on one of their Cryptek techs or their wargear. this gave their necrodermis the unique ability of absorbing heat around them, while maintaining their near sub-zero temperatures. This ability also has the side effect of directly interferring with the stored essences of the Necrontyr within the Necron constructs, allowing them to feel once again the ability to feel the coldness of their metallic forms, driving all of them mad with from the effects of their own bodies.

    Further Supposition: The Flayers are the one that are greatly affected by this phenomenon, which amplifies the effects the C'tan shard that affects them all (Caution:not sure here, im not familiar with the new fluff, and i have no codex). This madness extends to their habit of wearing their victim's flesh, only now it is in the vain and futile attempt of warming themselves.(Imagine: Imperial guardsmen hudling within their tanks and bunkers, completely blinded by the blizzards, their equipment rendered ineffective in the freezing weather, offplanet communication devices destroyed by the insanely strong gales of the storms that inhabit what little remains of the planets atmosphere that hasnt frozen over. Their fear mounts as Flayers shamble closer to the "hot ones", driven by the madness of their very own bodies to clothe themselves in warm flesh.)

    Information: Its nice that i finally contributed in this board.

    Pic semi-related.

    As the anon mentioned, I rather like the further supposition. I seem to remember in Fall of Damnos the Necrons complaining, or at least registering, the unique cold of their bodies. With these Necrons, their Flayers are ones not mad to replace their own flesh but mad from the cold and for the warmth of living beings.

    As for the worlds name, I tried looking up stuff in ancient Egyptian but all I found were hieroglyphs or very, very small, one page dictionaries. But Egyptians of today speak Arabic. And in Islamic religion, there is a section of Hell that is the exact opposite. Meaning rather than fire and brimstone its severe cold and blizzards. This particular pit of Hell is called

    That's my suggestion. Makes a great Tombworld name, I think, but not sure if that's a good name for the Necrons themselves.
