You are a Hormogaunt. Or at least you think you are. Fuck if you know, your brain can barely process much information beyond "Kill," "Charge," and "Eat." Right now, you are currently standing amid a giant swarm of fellow Hormagaunts. You then realized that you realized where you are. Shouldn't you be hunting, not wasting your time doing ridiculous things like having a mind?>What do you do now?>Also, decide on what Hive Fleet you are, or whether you are simply a splinter fleet.
Splinter Fleet Nidhoggr.And I guess we should follow the Hormagaunts for now - no need to look suspicious.
>>22668478If Ripper Proximity=1, eat. If 0, move->ripper, eat. Also Jormungandr.
Rolled 10Rolling for Hydra Fleet. And we should look for something to eat that isn't a fellow Hormagaunt.
>What doWhatever the hivemind tells us to.I dont think you thought this out very well.
>>22668478>Shouldn't you be hunting, not wasting your time doing ridiculous things like having a mind?We must be one of the hive fleet's many mutations. If we outperform other gormogaunts, the fleet will produce more like us.
>>22668520You decide to follow your brethren to your next meal, as normally. You wait around as the last of the group finish the remnants of their meal, a rather bothersome group of PDF soldiers. As you wait, you take in your surroundings. You are currently located in what seems to be a desert. No other lifeforms besides you and the other hormagaunts are here. As far as you can see, there is only sand. As you move, you suddenly hear a voice in your head. "MOVE. EAST. FOOD." You notice as the large swarm begins to head eastwards, or at least what your instincts tell you are. >What do you do now?
>>22668641Move->east. If Ripper Proximity=1, eat Ripper. If=0, find ripper on the way.
No need to get culled by disobeying the hive mind. TO the east! Lets try to get ahead of the horde though
Rolled 6953>>22668478KrakenNeural merge with the nearest warrior form.
>>22668616so, do we become irrelevant to the tyranid so fast>>22668588I believe OP is right. Lets have a mind of our own and use the hivemind for our own purposes.
Splinter fleet Molochmaintain security among gaunts, attempt merging/advancement when possible with one of the simpler synapse creatures
(Alright, so we have 1 for Kraken, 1 for Hydra, 1 for Jormungandr, and 1 for Nidhoggr. Somebody's gotta break that tie.)>>22668657>>22668667You head east, searching for rippers to eat. Always nice to have a snack before the main course. Seeing none, or more likely not getting to them before the other members of the swarm, you decide to run ahead of the horde surrounding you. After around an hour of travel, you see what looks to be a bright bolt of light flying at you. It luckily misses you. What appears to be a young human in heavily damaged flak armour. He appears to be screaming while heating his weapon repeatedly. You wonder if this your meal before you hear "MEAL. EAT. CONSUME." You assume this is it. You know that the rest of the swarm is a good 30 seconds behind you at least, so you get ready.>Your fighting unskilled PDF, what do you do?
>>22668805Ack, meant to say hitting, not heating. My mistake.
Rip, N, Tear. Oh and swat the gun out of his hand
>>22668805Steal his lunch.
>>22668805Go Chestburster on PDF?
>>22668805Let nature take it's course. Eat him.
>>22668835Ye, might as well vote for Hydra
>>22668805I vote Nidhoggr if thats the /tg/ fire nid one.
kill and drag him off so we don't get shot while eating.
>>22668835(You heard the man. We're Hydra now.)>>22668838>>22668858>>22668848You begin to approach the human, hungry. You can see him begin to back up as you approach, trying to fire his weapon to no avail. After being realizing it is of no use to him, he throws it at you and begins to run away. You take this opportunity to pounce, using your powerful hind legs to propel yourself at the man, claws out. Your right claw pierces his back, while your left slices his arm off. The man screams in pain and anger, as you begin to slice him to pieces. Once you finish with your delightful task, you notice he has a sealed container. Inside seems to be a sandwich, which you happily eat before consuming the man himself. As you are around a quarter of the way done with the man, the rest of the swarm arrives, seemingly just as hungry as you are. The remains are quickly devoured, with nothing remaining afterwards. >What do you wish to do now?
>>22668956...take his hat.
>>22668956Sneak about until we find the guy with the fanciest hat and kill him.
The sandwich was good. We should try and find more.
>>22668973And then force his space-French maid to ride us. We shall be the most delightful nid ever!
>>22668970>>22668991>>22668973Alas, the man has, not a hat, but a helmet! You are saddened by this turn of events, but you decide to keep the helmet with you for now, until you are able to find a suitable replacement. Knowing that you would not be directed for a meal this small, you and the rest of the swarm continue eastward, before quickly coming across a much larger group of humans. These ones seem to be in better shape, but for them that's not saying much. You see one, however, who has a fancy hat!>What do you do?
Sneak around the group while our brethern lay into them then striek and the Hat when the moment is right!
>>22669058Let everyone else run into the shots, and flank the guy with the hat. Then take his hat. AND his pants. Also his coat if he has one.
>>22669100This sounds good. The one with the hat MUST be the tastiest!
>>22669085Seconded! For hats! FOR GLORY!
>>22669126And pants! And coats!
>>22669100>>22669085You know what you must do. As soon as you saw it, you knew it too. You heard the voice. It told you. "HAT. GET." You watch as your brethren charge forward, and get mowed down. You feel like if you had tear ducts, you would shed tears at this. One of the squad of eighteen men, his gun overheating in the hot desert after firing on full auto, begins to run, before being shot by the man with the fancy hat. The rest continue to lay down fire, killing many of your brothers. However, 5 men are quickly killed by the massed charge. The rest back up before resuming fire.
The fancy-hat man fires a few shots with his louder, scarier gun, before he quickly fumbles for another magazine. You know your moment when you see it. You quickly spring from the mound of sand you were hiding behind and decapitate him in one quick swoop. There is a very strange silence that falls on the men as they see their leader killed. Most begin to back off, but they are all quickly overtaken by your brothers. As you watch you take the mans hat, and place it on your head. You feel like the best Hormagaunt ever right now.
>>22669203Who's a pretty Hormagaunt? We're a pretty Hormagaunt.
Enjoy our victory feast. Also remember, killing humans with fancy hats cause the other humans to panic.
>>22669203We're a Hormissar now.
Drawfags! we call for aid!get us a homissar!
>>22669344pardon, hormissar.i also elect that we don his coat as well as his hat, and see if he has one of those things with the whirring teeth.
(I shall take this name, for it is beautiful.)>>22669260>>22669167You decide if you are going to take one part, you will take the rest. You quickly take the mans coat and try to put it on. You are at first frustrated with it, before realizing you need to remove HIS sliced off arms before putting yours. Of course, you end up ripping a hole for your other arms in the coat, but you still look pretty amazing. You feel like the Hive Mind would be proud of you right now. You begin your victory feast with your brothers. If Tyranids can feel joy, then you are now.>What now?>Suggestions: Take bolt pistol; Find more food; Preform song and dance routine.
>>22669371all of the above, the song and dance preferably while eating people with cardboard armor.
>>22669371how would a hormagaunt use a bolt pistol?
>>22669396*ahem* That is a Hormissar to YOU, sir.and of course he can use a bolt pistol, he is a HORMISSAR! HE CAN DO ANYTHING!
>>22669396hold it with his mouth and press the trigger with his cute widdle claws.
>>22669371>acquire food>disregard pistol>if find human, commence operation piggyback
Hormissar is actually a pretty cool guy.(Me sees a tie-in incoming)
>>22669203I HEARD SOMETHING ABOUT HATS IN THIS THREAD?!
>>22669371Take a chainsword instead. or if there is truly nothing left, take the damn pistol and have him be a Badass.
>>22669476... four chainswords.
>>22669412>>22669384You decide to try and use the human's weapon, in hopes that it will be able to serve the hide mind. Perhaps an organic version could be produced somehow, who knows. Regardless, you stare at it for a second. Then a minute. Then half an hour. Your brothers seem to be too busy staring at you in confusion to notice what you are trying to do. After around an hour of simply looking at the strange device, you finally figure out how to use it. Sadly, you accidently shoot one of your brothers in the process, leaving quite a mess. Luckily, your other brothers quickly clean it all up.>What do you do now?>Search for food? Dance time? What do you wish?
>>22669488I... i don't even....
>>22669488You make a note to yourself to try and acquire a vast supply of these "chainswords." You shall make even the Great Swarmlord stare in awe of yourself.
>>22669511go search for some of those giant rolling tin cans...you now have a can opener! then afterwards:steps:1.find an ork pirate warband2.do a musical rendition of "shiver my timbers" while attacking the IG 3.?????4. profit.
>>22669511make the rest of the swarm dress like the meat to confuse the remaining meat.
>>22669511wait for orders,in the mean time put some helmets on a rock and practice shooting them
well, it "is" better armor than chitin.
>>22669581wait... am i hearing...Imperial tyranids? is... is it smart to synthesize the two biggest swarm armies? should we include the orks?we will find out!
>>22669640i now have an idea for my new 'nids...the leader of this new splinter fleet of imperial-dressed tyranids will always be led by the hormissar.
>>22669640fuck, we should have an "only war" campaign where we have a bunch of gaunts pretending to be guardsmen,like deffwotch. but with Tyranids!
>>22669684this asshole right here!!!!
>>22669583>>22669581You tell your brothers to dress in the clothing of the dead troopers you killed. None of them respond until a voice appears in your head. "LISTEN. ORDERS. FOLLOW." Some of the others attempt to dress in the clothing, but are visibly struggling to understand the idea of not tearing it apart in the first place. By the end of it, you have 5 Hormagaunt-"Guardsmen". While this is going on, you attempt to practice with using the fire arm you looted. The recoil is very strong, you notice, but if you hold it with 3 arms it remains stable. After a while you feel like you've actually gotten the hang of it, but that's not really saying much. You can now fire the gun and aim, but actually hitting your targets is still a challenge to you. Before you can continue, however, you are alerted by the voice once more. "NORTH. FOOD. SCOUT.">What do you do?(I feel like I've begun something.)
>>22669718Go north,just because were smarter than everyone else doesn't mean we have to be a dick about it
>>22669718you have fucker, you have!lets see, the only thing we can do is follow the north star at this point.(also see if the others can use the strange flashlights that the meat uses)
>>22669344I am attempting this, but it may be hideous.
>>22669762make it intentionally gruesome then.
Someone archive this shit before oblivion takes hold.
>>22669804i second this
>>22669762(I love you with all of my heart, you have no idea.)>>22669751>>22669742Before you head north, you tell your clothed brothers to take the weapons the men were using before. They stare at you for a few moments, before they trudge over and attempt to pick them up. It takes them awhile, and a lot of fumbling around, but they eventually manage to hold the weapons without dropping them while walking. You and your group head northwards. You notice as you go that the grounds begins to change. The desert you were so familiar with begins to vanish. The sand becomes soil. The air becomes less dry. In the distance, you can see trees. Can you eat trees, you wonder. But before that matters, you and your group stop. You see what seems to be a patrol ahead. Luckily, they seem to be slacking off, not doing their jobs, considering they missed a giant swarm of Hormagaunts. >What do you do now?
>>22669762>>22669772Here. I am not a good drawer on a computer.
The hive mind needs to invest in this new bio-morph.
>>22669837Thats better than anything i could do
>>22669834your new hat commands you to yell at these lazy troopers for slacking off and to induct a few into your swarm.
>>22669873I will admit that the on-paper draft looks better. It's got the right proportions, for one.
>>22669888do you have a scanner? a camera?
>>22669834start yelling at them and if they don't respond kill em'
>>22669902Nope. I'm a uni student, those are things I can't afford.
>>22669937my sympathies...anyway,we can get more drawings later...so, lets yell at some guardsmen... (best shoot the ones that don't believe you are a real commissar first, then don't eat them in front of the foolish ones.)
>>22669921>>22669875You feel it. You know that you must. You cannot resist. You run forward, waving your gun in the air, shouting at the men slacking off about how they are failing at what they are doing, how they are all disgraces and do not deserve the gifts they have been given. How they are failures to the Emperor or something like that, you don't know what's come over you, but you can't control yourself right now. You order them to maintain their watch and prevent invaders from entering the area. When they actually notice you they pause, and stare. You quickly shoot one in the head for disobeying a direct order. The others quickly attempt to grab their weapons, but another two are quickly executed in this manner. One tries to flee and he too is shot. The remaining three are too shocked to actually move. One attempts to salute, and says he will follow orders now properly. The other two stare at him as if he were crazy, before they see the rest of the swarm behind you. They then quickly salute you and do the very same.>What do you do now?
>>22670006Order him to eat his dead friends.We are a good commissar, letting our men eat first.
>>22670006get an inventory, if rippers are in proximity, then feast.make sure that these new swarm-mates know the order of things in the Hormissar's care...
also, instruct the rest of the swarm to make sure to not eat these new arrivals. (like secrete hormones on 'em or something.)
>>22670006OBVIOUSLY, to them you must be a 'nid who has (somehow) found the Emperor, and become a staunch Imperial. This means that, given you control the rest of the swarm, the swarm are your prisoners. This leads to the obvious conclusion: Ask for directions to the nearest settlement. Capture said settlement with swarm and possibly guardsmen. Use said settlement as base of operations.
we shall call our self, (oh god)we are a gaunt commissar...i just realized....we are Hormissar Gaunt...
>>22670006Integrate the recently executed guardsmens' equipment into your growing platoon and forward march!!
>>22670155For the glory of the Hive-emperor!
>>22670058>>22670036You order the men to eat their own friends. They stare at you in shock and disgust before you explain to them that they were nothing but cowards, and they did not deserve to live. When ones ask why he has to eat another human being, you explain that the Emperor needs flesh. He needs biomass in order to fuel his armies. His new armies. You begin to think this hat is influencing you somewhat, but you shake it off. One of the men gets sick of this and grabs his lasgun and open fire. You quikcly respond by shooting him with your bolt pistol. The other two men look at each other, back at you, and slowly get down and attempt to eat their former comrades. You tell your brothers not to harm your new comrades, for they will soon be joined with the glorious hive mind. Soon they will be with us. After the men force down as much as they can (Which is very little) you and your brothers finish off the rest. >>22670155You take the supplies of the newly deceased guardsmen and add them to your growing swarm. It takes awhile, but you get 2 more hormagaunts into guardsman flak armour, and arm 4 others with the lasguns.>>22670069You ask the men where the nearest settlement is. The man tells you that it is due north 6 miles. >What do you do now?
My filthy xenos hive-mind is so confused right now....
>>22670216FOR THE HIVE-EMPEROR!(oh god, as soon as we get a whole regiment on-board...)
Hormissar NEEDS to commandeer a titan.Also, seconding the gaurdsmen eating their dead bit. We must train them how to hunt.
>>22670216Send the fastest of the horde ahead to scout, as you remain behind to instill discipline and fear of the Emperor into this unruly rabble...
Rolled 59>>22670216>worshiping the big Mroll for san loss
>>22670247This idea...I just went from six to midnight...
wait, they are in a forest in the middle of the tyranid invasion?! THERE IS A FUCKING LICTOR SOMEWHERE! get it to piss on something to get more swarm-mates to come!
Not the best, but I tried...
>>22670247what about strapping a few lemin-russ battle cannons onto a carnifex?!
>>22670308Photoshop that shit onto the original pic!
>>22670248You send one of your brother forward, in order to scout the forest. While the fellow hormagaunt goes forward, you begin to preach to the entire swarm about the Hive-Emperor, which is what happens once the Tyranids have consumed humanity; the Hive-Mind shall fuse with the God Emperor to form the most powerful being in known existence. You can visibly see one of the guardsman trembling, his mind shattered. You continue your preaching, until you see your scout return. You notice he brought a friend with him:>Lictor>Carnifex>Warrior Squad>Ravener>Custom?
>>22670363I vote a warrior squad in power armor,and this anon >>22670274h\Has a point, there would be a Lictor around
>>22670391Forgot pic my bad.
>>22670363well, why choose? there is enough food for everyone! (the dead ones must have the glorious sandwiches!)
>>22670399... the hormissar drew it himself...
I have to be up in the morning so I'm off to bed. Somebody please archive this glorious thread.
>>22670399what if you did it on this one?
>>22670477Can I love you? Please?
>>22670477get this man a medal!
>>22670363Aw isn't that precious, the first of of the Hive-Emperor's cult is born. Send him off to spread word throughout the sector.
>>22670452How's this work? Don't have photoshop just paint, so its not gonna be the best quality.
>>22670491Can I join?(also, play into this anon's pun)>>22670086
>>22670477Very nice! I've been doing the other hormissar pics. XD
>>22670548Well, if you insist.Anyway, so far we have one vote for Warrior Squad (With Power Armor no less), and one vote for all of the choices.Unless you guys vote, we're kinda stuck here.
>>22670554Liar. the first one was mine.
>>22670541>>22670477I need to change my pants...
>>22670579Ravener is the best choice here.
>>22670592Indeed it is my friend. I apologies.
>>22670607:P'sokay.Damnit. Now I want to see a Lictor in IG uniform...
>>22670579well, the powered armor would be idiotic... at first...i think a carnifex would make the guardsmen shit themselves more, i don't know what a ravener squad would be like, but i know this story is going to be good either way... custom? i don't know...we all just got sidetracked by the hormissar now having a portrait.
>>22670637We shouldn't decide to include "warrior-marines" too soon and without it making sense. custom? i say have some imperial storm troopers come in.
>>22670518You sure he won't get killed as a member of a 'stealer cult?
>>22670579I vote lictor.
>>22670723I'm thinking lictor is probably going to be most helpful, but how good are they at stealth-attacks?
>>22670702this is different because we have a fucking HORMISSAR!
>>22670579I vote many sandwiches!
>>22670746Stealth is kinda their thing.
>>22670746Wouldnt raveners be more useful because of tunneling and shit?
>>22670893that isn't stealth, that is shock and awe.
>>22670579Nominating making rippers chew up trees and find some others from our hive fleet.
>>22670723>>22670778>>22670692You see what appears to be a Lictor, dragging behind him a dead Imperial Storm Trooper. You nod at the Lictor, who stares at you. You can feel the Lictor judging you behind its emotionless eyes. Suddenly, you see him rip out the Stormtroopers brain and consume it. After one of the guardsmen near you vomits out all that he had eaten recently (his rations and old friends) and one of your brothers cleans up the mess, you notice the lictor seems to attempt to put on the stormtrooper outfit. Or as much as he can, being rather large. You take note of the hellgun on the corpse's body, unsure of what to do with it. You also notice a sealed container on the corpse. Opening it, you see a sandwich. You wish you had tear ducts so you could express your joy at this moment. After quickly consuming the delicious sandwich, you realize you have much to do.>What do you do now?
>>22670937Take the hellgun for ourselves, continue to village with lictor lurking in the shadows to ambush all who oppose us. See if new human recruits can make sandwiches.
>>22670937march on the town and praise the god-over-mind. Try not to kill as many, just enough to feed everyone. and as a general rule:make everyone have a few rippers (the guardsmen would like them more than the rations, but would have to make sure they were dead first.)and if you find a genestealer cult? assert your dominance.(Hormissar don't take no shit from no horny 'nids.)
>>22670987SANDWICHES FOR THE HIVE-EMPEROR! CRISPS/CHIPS/WHATEVER-YOU-CALL-IT AS A NICE SIDE FOR THE SANDWICH!
>>22670937If we can get to the village within a reasonable timescale, we should try to do so so we can indoctrinate the village before nightfall. Having an indoctrinated village is going to be really useful.>>22671043If we find a 'stealer cult, we shouldn't need to do the indoctrination. We just slightly change the message, so that all patriarchs become priests of the HiveEmprah.
>>22671097I like this idea, but do we have anything that can indoctrinate them?
>>22671097so that the 'stealers want to be the new witchhunters (both to praise the great one and to find sandwiches), except not dying?
>>22671137a fucking swarm if they don't comply.
>>22670937put a tyranid in the place of a brain...make it a human-nid thrall...(if it works... we shall see...)
(Somebody want to archive this? I'm dead tired, but I love you all too much, so I'll make a few more posts before I end for today.)>>22670987You stare at the las weapon. You can tell just at sight that is the laser weapon you have seen so much. But even better.You holster your bolt pistol and, with the help of one of the guardsman, put on the Hellgun. You tell the Lictor to ambush anyone you meet on your command. It nods, and vanishes from sight. One of the guardsman is shivering in fright still. You turn your head and he forces himself to stop out of fear. >>22671097You get to the settlement nice and safely. Surprisingly, there weren't any other guards the whole 6 miles. When asked why, the Guardsman explains that the area was being abandoned by the Imperium, but they didn't have time to get the locals out, nor all of the troopers. You walk into the center of the village. It is around the middle of the night. The moon is out. It is beautiful. You begin to preach to them all of the truth. Of the Hive-Emperor. Of how they shall serve him with their beings. How they shall know true piece. How they shall be one with him for all eternity. Slowly, windows open and some civilians wander out. Once they realize it is a tyranid that is speaking to them, they seem scared and frightened. Some attempt to flee the village. However, your brothers stop them. They are forced back into the center with you.>What do you do?
>>22671268archive: chanarchive dot org slash request_votes (fucking system thinks i am spam)we are the only TG thread up...
>>22671268we tell them that we are going to put them back under "imperial" protection.
>>22671268ask if anyone would like to volunteer (or would like to volunteer someone else) to be food.
>>22671268Ask if they make sandwiches.
Demand a sandwich maker ASAP.Execute a civilian every ten minutes you don't get a sandwich, also keep on preaching.
>>22671457We must have sammiches!
>>22671457we are archived!!!(also this man is well read and erudite.)
>>22671353(Ah, was hoping for suptg. Just so used to using that for archives. But nonetheless, thank you still. This is my first quest thread, and I'm glad you all are enjoying it so much.)>>22671379>>22671393You explain to them that they are being placed back under Imperial control. The True Imperial control. Many are sobbing, Others are in the fetal position, rocking back in forth. There are a few, however, who have accepted their fate, and are quiet. They are peaceful. You stare at them, and then stare at the others. You decide to offer the unworthies one final chance.>>22671414You ask them if they can make sandwiches. There is a slight awkward pause, before a few slowly raise their hand. You look at them and order them to make some for you. Now. They quickly get up and run to their homes in order to do so. You order all the rest of the unworthies to be food for your swarm. Many begin running, and crying. But it's too for them. They are all hunted down and eaten by the swarm. You smile as you are brought numerous sandwiches from the unworthies you kindly spared. You hear a voice in your head. "GOOD. JOB." You feel proud.
That's it for tonight folks. Sorry for the ending at the good part, but I'm really tired right now. However, don't you worry. Tomorrow, the adventures of Hormissar Gaunt shall continue. (I don't know at what TIME tomorrow, but god damnit I will continue this, I swear it on my life.)
>>22671268This is a great thread. Thanks OP.
>>22671563All good man. Just use one of the pictures to identify the thread and maybe catch some new eyes and ideas.
contribootin drawing, sorry bout the shitty attempts at shopping it
>>22675656Amazing. Top job, anon.
there needs to be a 1d4chan page for this
>>22675800No, it's actually pretty mediocre, but it's okay.
>>22671268If we do include a ravener, can we call him Gideon?
>>22675656By the hive-emperor they will fear you!...what would the hive emperor look like...
http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hormissar_GauntIf anyone has an older account to upload pictures and uh actually knows how to make an article.
>>22676130Dafuq?It's funny, but it's definitely wierd too.Then again, so's the rest of the thread...
>>22676130delicious. i hope that hormissar gets less and less murder the unworthy and starts to realise that keeping an ecosystem working or intact and not murdering large amounts of people will help them work out the hive emperor thing. not much of an empire for the hive emps if it's just barren rocks devoid of anything organic. and you've yet to try the true depth of cooking! and Drugs! and Sex! and Music! and Family! and Joy! Sadness! love...
>>22678419this might also include apollogising for massacres made early on in hormissar's sentience, before it realised the value of things.THE UNDYING HIVE EMPEROR COMMANDS.
Well, I tried to make a new thread, but apparently this one still exists! So I'll write up the intro now. Give me a bit. Also, should I bother tripfagging?
>>22682724You return! I don't think you need to, but nobody would complain if you did.
>>22682724If you really want to? Continue for the hunger of the Hive-Emperor!
Sorry for leaving so suddenly last night, I honestly was way too tired. Thankfully, my days of waking up at 5:45 everyday are finally ending. When we last left off, we had finally found a base of operations for our group. The townspeople, while frightened by the swarm of Tyranids, have tried to continue living their lives. After you had 3/5s of the population eaten for refusing to listen to your preaching, however, they tend to be very attentive to you now. And the many sandwiches they bring you are all extraordinary. >What do you do?>Also, come up with a name for the two Guardsmen who have joined you, along with the Lictor-Stormtrooper.>I still do not know how you guys got to this level of insanity so quickly.
>>22682992We shall call the guardsmen George and Steak, because Steak looks delicious.If we have established this as a sandwich making place for the hive-emperor, we should ask where the next human settlement is, so we can get more sandwich makers.
>>22682992Just read through. Damn, you are god-tier insane and good. Thank you for this quest.Lictor: Victor.Guardsmen: Amadeus and Rudolf.(I know, crap names, I'm bad at this)Are there any other directions where there are more villages?For now we should consolidate our hold over this village though. Make sure they become loyal servants of the hive-emperor and procreate to ensure many generations of sandwich servants.
bumpin' because this deserves more attention.
>>22683047A vote for steak and having ourself and every other 'nid constantly reminding him that he looks, smells and tastes (We lick him while he sleeps) delicious.
>>22683055Victor the Lictor, Steak the tasty and can we attach 'nid parts to the other guardsman and call him Guardifex?
>>22683650Vote here for Guardifex
>>22682992We institute sandwiches as an integral part of the Hive-Emperor's will. What's the voice in our head up to?
>>22683047>>22683615>>22683650Steak carries the sandwiches, defends the sandwiches and WILL LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR THE SANDWICHES
>>22683650This. So this.
>>22683615>>22683047>>22683055You turn your attention to the Lictor, who you christen as Victor. It stares at you with its emotionless eyes, before acknowledging its new name. You tell him to consolidate control over this town while you head out with half of the swarm to capture another town. It nods its head and you notice a drop of water on its face. It seems sad that you are leaving it so soon, but you tell him you shall return with more followers soon. You go to the two guardsman, one of whom is attempting to flirt with some of the townsfolk. He is failing miserably. You decide they deserve new names. You christen the lecherous one as Steak. When asked why you do this, you remind him of how delicious he would taste. One of the girls he was flirting with is giggling while you say this. You decide to find the other guardsman, who you notice to be in the fetal position, unmoving.>What do you do?>(You can try and make him Guardifex if it is what /tg/ wishes)(Also I shall return shortly because pizza just got here, sorry guys.)
>>22682992Well we need more Guardsmen and equipment for our fellow Hormagaunts. Commission a few more Hormissars?captcha Train PautpnTraining might be a good idea
>>22683779Guardifex! Clearly he is the weakest of the two, and we shall improve him with some proper Tyranid armaments... Arms... something.
>>22683779Getting him in touch with his tyranid side might make him less of a wimp and by that I agree with attaching some parts to him so he HAS a tyranid side.
>>22683779Has just been drafted to fight for a hat-wearing Hormagaunt and he's trying to score instead of going insane. Steak you dog.
>>22683779He needs to be less cowardly and fearful. Getting him all chitin'd up will help him realise that fear is something which prey species feel.
>>22683779If he doesn't man up soon, appreciate the xeno bio-mechanical upgrades he's about to have grafted and start being all the Tyranid/Guardsman hybrid he can be we'll call him a Wimpifex.
>>22682992>I still do not know how you guys got to this level of insanity so quickly.We're awesome, that's how.
>>22683832He was a closet heretic. He thought the God-Emperor was really just a really powerful human. He never even liked his superiors, so he's just making the best out of a bad situation.>>22683803>>22683814You stare at the sniveling wreck that once was a guardsman. He doesn't even acknowledge your presence. You realize what you must do. You call over one of your brothers and tell him what must happen. He stares at you, before nodding. You then carefully execute your brother, and thank him for his sacrifice. You slowly but carefully fuse his body with the guardsman. It takes time, but you end up stitching Hormagaunt arms to the guardsman. You feed him some of the Hormagaunt meat, before you see the newly attached arms begin to twitch on him. You see him stand up, his eyes blank. He has joined. You christen him Guardifex.
>>22684508He won't be big at first but we'll feed him lots of sandwiches.
>>22684605Yes, lots of sandwiches and opposing guardsmen.
>>22684636BATTLE BROTHERS! WE FEAST ON THE TRAITOR LEGIONS!
>>22684592Guardifex in the front, Steak with the sandwiches and Hormissar Gaunt's Imperial Hormagaunts are a go to seek more SANDWICHES AND HATS.
>>22684592i vote we do this instead of slaughtering weak humans in the future.
If we lay some eggs are they gonna be like the Hormissar? We're gonna need more hats.
>>22684592We need to find one of those four-legged cannon nids for Steak to ride into battle.
>>22684731>implying we dont lay eggs that already have hats on them
>>22684592Can't leave the locals to do nothing, a bio-mass statue of the Hive-Emperor is in order.
>>22684755TINY HORMISSARS! FOR TINY INSPIRATION!
>>22684592Aquire transportation, steak won't be able to keep up otherwise. Preferably some sort of battle bus. If none are available figure out if theres a mechanic among the civies and make hime make one.
Find the next village.Enslave all sandwich makers.Kill everyone else.Turn village materials into transport.>We are a Hormagaunt who stole a hat and got guardsmen to fuse to the hive, don't tell me we can't make a car.
>>22685068>don't tell me we can't make a car.Of course we cant make cars, silly.We need to find us a genestealer to give us a troop transport. Those niggas know style.
>>22685068addendum/correction lay symbiotes in everyone else instead of murder. need more for the hive emperor and slaughter does not convert people. who are we, khorne? no.
>>22685181As long as we get sandwichs I'm happy.
>>22685181Maybe we can modify the deli owners to biomanufacture sandwiches somehow. Like, built-in organic ovens and stuff.
>>22683615that... is... genius!
>>22684788Before you leave, you tell Victor to construct a statue of the Hive-Emperor. He looks confused, so you explain to him to build a statute of biomass, shaped similar swarmlord, except in golden power armor, and a more humanoid form. It nods, and you depart.>>22684919Right before you finally depart, you hear a voice in the back. It is Steak, who keeps telling you to stop calling him that. He tells you that he acquired transportation: his squads old chimera, along with some old civilian vehicles. You thank him for his efforts, and split the swarm up for the road trip. It takes 12 hours for everyone to properly drive down the road without swerving off.
>>226693442 min in Gimp. Don't blam me!
>>22684592 i say that we don't make EVERYONE a hybrid, hybrids don't know how to make sandwiches (and we need halfway decent fighters) so only broken/volunteer guardsmen get to be superior.
>>22685247(sup, i am one of the guys who named our hero earlier)I vote for sudden interception by some people wanting a race.
>>22685392i also got this page up earler: http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hormissar_Gauntsomeone want to help me edit it?
>>22685247I vote for more guardsmen,maybe some sisters of battle.
>>22685247Bring in everyone (even the undesirables, we need more biomass, and we don't want to use the sandwich makers) to the main city, bringing as much building materials as we can to build a glorious city.
>>22685247Let's acquire more soldiers. We will convert them to the Hive-Emperor. Maybe some SoBs, they probably make great sammiches.
>>22670477>I love you and this entire thread.
>>22685277it is... appeasing.
>>22685247symbiote the useless and nonbelievers of the town, they will be useful.
>>22685247After/during, lets find some zoanthrope or another hive mind beastie to see if theres any genestealer cults. We need dem swagsters /.
>>22685581there we go.
>>22685619what about warriors?
>>22685647Genestealers are pretty msucley, and we're going for a charismatic victory for teh moment at least
>>22675656>fancy gun spinHaha. I love it.
>>22668478I think to myself"MY BACK IS ITCHY"
>>22685581(They were all already converted to biomass. AKA Eaten.)>>22685392>>22685137As you continue down the road, you stop at a fork in the road. You look around, and take in the surrounding. The trees are starting to thin out and the ground is getting more hilly. You believe to be entering a mountainous region. And then you see something you didn't expect.Another vehicle pulls up next to you. It is much longer and more extravagant than any other vehicle you have ever seen. The window rolls down, and inside you see a human. Or a humanoid figure. Next to it, however, is the unmistakable sight of a genestealer. It waves at you.>What do you do?>(Race Challenge is in fact an option. But do whatever you guys want.)
>>22685711RACE THAT BITCH.if we win, they have to join us.
>>22685711gun it against some gene-gangsters towards the next town.
>>22685711I can't help but imagine the Genestealer in a purple pimp outfit, now....
>>22685734my thanks cannot be enough to show my appreciation towards your generous act.
>>22685774pimpstealers?pimpstealers.(the same bio morph is different for genestealers than it is for gaunts.)
>>22685711i meant for future towns. i thought we were headed for another one. symbiosis superior.
>>22685711>http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hormissar_GauntMAKE SURE HE KNOWS THE GLORY OF THE HIVE-EMPEROR, DEFEATING HIM IN A RACE WILL PROVE IT. WITH FAITH HOW CAN WE LOSE?
>>22685853Didn't mean to cruise control but once you start..
>>22685863HORMISSARS ARE ALWAYS SHOUTING ALL THE TIME.Or spraying Tyranid mouth fluids everywhere as they attempt to imitate human speech.
>>22685734Can you gallery up the pictures? my account isn't old enough to upload them.
>>22685755>>22685771You stare at the genestealer. It stares at you. The stare down continues for about 5 minutes. It's on.The chimera speeds up, but the limo is quicker, and gets ahead. However, luck seems to be on your side, as the rocky terrain makes the limo to have to slow down in order to control itself. The chimera, however, just drives forward, crushing anything in its way with its treads. It is a race between speed and power. You stay neck and neck for quite some time, before the voice returns. "LEFT. GO. TURN." You look left, and there seems to be a small, unused dirt road...>Do you use it?(You're racing to see who reaches the next settlement first, by the way.)
>>22685920Use the shortcut, the Hivemind has not let us astray yet.
>>22685920We didn't get where we are today by ignoring voices in our head! Many...many...voices...that talk of hats and sandwiches...
>>22685920BY THE LEFT, LEFT WHEEL YOU SPAWNDOGS
>>22685920the hivemind is famous for its need for speed!GO HERR HORMISSAR!
>>22685499>Sisters of BattleWe need to make us a KerriganLets make us a Kerrigan
>>22685945and grafting tyranid parts onto mentally broken guardsmen.
>>22685920We feel an odd need to stand atop the Chimera waving a sharp object..
>>22685987that can make sandwiches!>>22685997DRIVE ME CLOSER!!!
Hive Fleet Jormungandr>And fuck bitches, get money
>>22686018Cheers. :D>>22685920Treads squealing we drift/carve left into the small dirt road in a huge spray of terrain and limb gestures to the limo.
>>22685774/tg/ beat you to that punch by a while>>22685847Well technically, it would be a hostealer, since it isnt stealing your pimps.
>>22686021Yes! Sisters of Sandwiches!The kitchen is the holy shrine of the Hive-Emperor!
>>22686051About as surprised as I was to see there was already a picture of a Hormagaunt with a Commissar hat.
>>22686051official part of our new empire.
>>22686051Holy shit, someone actually saved it.I spent hours working on that. In paint.
>>22686137Bitches be digging my Groovelord.
Left. Should we win, we should mount our Chimera and proceed to perform a bitching air guitar and tap dance solo to greet the limo.
>>22686203well,we WERE originally supposed to do a song and dance at some point...
/r/ing Jive Tyrant walk
>>22686046>>22685997>>22685961>>22685971>>22685945>>22685930You take the shortcut. With a sharp turn, the tracks spray up a large amount of rocky soil onto the limo. With a large amount of rude gestures and waving claws above Chimeras, you take the turn and speed on ahead. You can hear some screeching from the genestealer limo, but you now have a large lead on them! You lie back, and think of sandwiches while you let Steak drive. You remind him that he tastes delicious and he tries to ignore you, but you can tell it's starting to get to him.>>22686203You quickly arrive at the outskirts of the town, and see the limo pull up, knowing they have been defeated. You proceed to stand on top of your Chimera, and proceed to play Stairway to Heaven in air-guitar, while tap dancing. It is a beautiful sight to behold.>What do you do now?>(Suggestions: Convince Genestealers to join you, consume biomass from town, smokeweekerryday420.)
>>22686260Convince the Genestealers to join us, ask them where all the SoBs at.
>>22686260Give steak a good licking
>>22686280HIVE FLEET FUNK IS IN THE HOUSE
>>22686260all of the freaking above, get the Genestealers onboardbut enslave-i-mean convert the town.
>>22686280Oh god I came.>>22686260We should, while continuing our bitching air guitar, attempt to bellow the praises of the god emperor and demand sandwiches.
>>22686260The pinp genestealer is named the Groovelord, for those that didn't catch the HFF thread months ago.
>>22686260Has the town noticed a Chimera bestridden (it's a word now) by a tap dancing, air-guitaring Hormissar? If not then perhaps get Steak to scout it, possibly telling all the residents there's Tyranids on the way and the Guardsmen are here to evacuate them.
>>22686260symbiooote the useless!
>>22686330Oh. Also, find a container. Fill it with drool and ichor. Insist Steak drinks it, because we want to lick him on the inside, too. If he refuses? We make out with him.
>>22686260Symbiote the Genestealers!
>>22686260Convince them? They surely must have seen the sickly pulsing light of the Hive-Emperor in our victory.
>>22686368why is this so funny?!
>>22686260http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hormissar_GauntEmbending them images...
>>22686466agreed.lets not take it that direction
>>22686368>>22686303You begin to lick steak. He you can tell he is trying to not scream extrenally while this going. After a while, you get bored of this, and begin to fill a container with your saliva and ichor. He stares at you in horror while this is going on.You then demand for him to drink it. When asked what if he didn't you tell him the consequences. He quickly grabs it and chugs the whole thing down.>>22686339You now tell Steak to scout out the town. He does so, wiping away his tears. He questions his life and existence while he gets out and walks towards the town.>>22686319You now attempt to convince the genestealers to join you. You explain to the group of the glories of the Hive-Emperor, and how he has brought you many glorious sandwiches and victories. The humanoid hybrids stare in awe at this revelation. Meanwhile, the genestealer rubs its chin with its claw, before nodding in agreement to your propostition. >What do you do now?
>>22686548Find SoBs, we need a Kerrigan.
>>22686548>Rape the genestealers
>>22686578Obviously we must do this. For graet justice.
>>22686548symbiote the useless in the town.steak is now godking of pickups, and symbiotes anyone he has sex with. also he's being upgraded with biomorphs without changing his human apperance!
>>22686548Convert the town with minimal fuss. See if we can get steak a pair of twins we can name Wholemeal and White and make a steak sandwich.
>>22686464Oh gosh. Seeing my image up there makes me so happy.
>>22686575Eeeh, don't take the stereotype path.
>>22686575This>>22686578Not this. The groovestealer is our bro. We do not rape bros.
>>22686593In memory of the Sex God Yachett
>>22686617>Not raping bros>2013>Shiggy diggy doo
>>22686615She wont ACT like Kerrigan, mind you, we just hybrid SoBs.The only blades she will be queen of is kitchen knives for making more sandwiches.
>>22686548i suggest that they wait until the slave gets back and decide from his report.(actually, we should expect some more imperial troops/PDF trying to get in on the action, what with the lack of supervision due to tyranids.)
>>22686597(I am waiting for you guys to demand Steak to emit pheromones that attract women, and then replace his penis with a bio-plasma launcher or something equally ridiculous.)Also, are we approaching auto-sage?
>>22686667I second the notion of Plasma Penis.
>>22686548http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXsxvdF481I>Where all my boys at?
>>22686647And I'm saying involving the Sisters feels like a stereotype. We can be more creative than the bottom of the barrel and putting them in yet another situation X, can't we?
>>22686597good point.anyone he screws becomes like him, (has greater toughness and strength due to being half tyranid, as well as charisma and intellect bonus.) lets not get started on the kids he has!
>>22686604this fucker over here!>>22686667oh god yes!
>>22686684>We should convert a couple Daemonette to be our hoes.
new thread?new thread.
Alrighty, I guess it's time for a new thread everyone!
>>22686752>>22686684I dunno', but it'd be nice to see the obligatory female addition to a 40k quest thread NOT be a Sister of Battle or an Eldar.
>>22686781a tau girl.
>>22686781All they do is attract peeps to chaos. We jus' gota pimp them out to work for the hive-emperor.'Dem hoes be fine at what they do.
>>22686781steak's first girlfriend! they become adam and eve of the humanids!
>>22686889 New thread's up.
>>22686781But its usually a tau or some other xenos. And SoB actually makes sense in this situation, as SoBs are supposed to be there to enforce faith in the Emperor.
In honor of this thread, I named my smurf account on LoL Hormissar.
