So, apparently, there's a Fortress-Monastery of some kind about 20 minutes from my house. I'm having problems placing the chapter, though...1/3
Send these pictures to Games Workshop. I am curious what will happen.
>>247908073/3My first response to this was "Holy hell, how are these people not being sued right now."
jesus christ how heretical
>>24790822Why would GW give a shit about Slash Gordon? He is clearly a Flash Gordon ripoff. Not their domain.GW didnt invent all scifi, pal.
Yeah, I posed the wrong image. That's what happens when you toss generic filenames around like that.Anyway that's pretty fucking heretical, son. Where would you even get one of those?
>>24790862That's an excellent question. You should ask the owner of the establishment.Imagine the wondrous things you could do if you bought one for yourself.
>>24790756>>24790807>>24790828Anyone else hear "lawsuit" with this heresy
You just need to ask yourself OP:Do you feel safer knowing that the Emperor's own Angels of steel, fury, and death are watching over you? Or do you feel freaked out?Be careful, one of these answers is heresy.
>>24790852The colors are right, but I don't remember their chapter symbol being "Best Value," though.
...You know what the worst part about this is?The smiling rebreather grille.
>>24790901I'm just curious as to why they're trying to sell me mobile homes.
>>24790908>>24790908Well someone has to sell the Imperium's citizens their cars, and the got, like, a dozen lost chapters flying around so, why the fuck can't Astartes sell some cars? Or used dreadnaughts for that matter.Yes I am hoping Automobile Astartes becomes a thing
>>24790929it will haunt my sleepthus marine is clearly a member of the emperor's nightmares
Friendly Marines chapter?I hear they are often confused with the Ultramarines. Chief differences between the two being is that Friendly Marines tend to offer their enemies a value death, two bolter rounds for the price of one and only half the time spent suffering from a chainsword wound.They are also known for being extremely frugal in their expenditures. Rumor has it to become an aspirant for the Friendly Marines is you need to show dedication by amassing thousands of coupons from Imperium-approved shops.
>>24791028I really hope this becomes a thing.
>>24791028I thought the face looked kind of funny looking, but when you crop it like that it becomes horrifying.
>>24790828>SlashSounds like a good idea to me.You know what to do, OP.For The Emperor.
>>24790756>Ok, marketing guys we need something to boost the sells.>Viral campaign?>Nop, it doesn't fit...>Chicks with little clothes?>Nah, we don't want to get the feminists against us>Ok.. so... how about...a 5 meters tall balloon of an astartes holding a house...It also has a confident smile.>PROMETE THIS DUDE RIGHT FUCKING NOW!
>>24790756Glorious Adeptus Pnaumaticus!
>>24790756OP, I need to see this in person. Do you understand? This is my mecca. So I need you to provide an address. I know, I know, you're worried that doing so could potentially put you in the kind of vague danger only the internet could. But I think we both agree that you're going to have to make some sacrifices if I'm going to realize my life long dream of three minutes ago.
>>24790968GREATINGS FELLOW CITIZEN!ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A SPEEDER?OUR PRIZES ARE SO LOW THAT THE ADEPTUS MECHANICUS HAS BRANDED US AS HERETICS!
>>24791028When you see an Adeptus Astartes smiling like that, you know something unspeakably horrible is about to transpire in the next moment.By the Emperor's atrophied balls that's absolutely terrifying.
>>24790908Well they are the greatest of them all.

>>24791197I like this version better.
>>24791267As the Emperor wills.
>>24791297BUT HOW WILL I AFFORD MY HOME IF SLASH GORDON DOES NOT PROTECT ME
Ah, Flash Gordon... good times.
>>24791309Do you doubt The Immortal God Emperor of Man!?
>>24791265>Homes for every one of us! Bankruptcy for none of us! He'll save you paying rent, every cent every dollar every dime AHHH SLASH
I want him to team up with Mat Ward to fight crime.
Slash Gordon is obviously following the Codex Estatus.
We should make Slash Gordon an actual chapter master, leading a squad of aggressive negotiators to Save for the Emperor
>>24791377He needs a chapter.
>>24791377We do not need Crazy Hassan in power armour.
>>24791377>>24791399His weapons deal no damage, because they're inflatable, but The Emperor's Realtors always pass Leadership tests when he's on the battlefield.
>>24791152I want that. I want that and display it across GW HQ.
Almost perfect, his bolter just needs to be a little boxier.
i saw one of these, but it looked normal.GW set up shop at the 2010 BSA national jamboree, and here was the highlight of the GW tent>GW is giving away 40k sets>predators tanks, dreads, trukks, tac squad, ETC.>little boy, barely thirteen, gets a predator tank>he is fucking ahppy, liek he just became president>he is standing in the tent, holding his new pred tank, grinning like an idiot>adult comes up, is an eagle>rushes up to the kid, yanks the pred from him, and runs out>this happens in the span of 5 seconds>GW offers to give the kid a new pred>some fucker stole them all while the kid was crying and GW employees were trying to calm him down>only 3 were stolen, but they were the last preds>kid gets no stuff>is sent home with the only remaining sprues, 2 skeleton sprues from WHFB>a scout is kind
>>24791413No, this isn't crazy hassan's camel market. Slash Gordon is in the home and real estate market.
>>24790828Mmmmmmmmm thats a sweet ass.
>>2479142510/10, would laugh again.
>>24791427>GW is giving away 40k setsYou lost me.
>>24791399I think everyone knows what time it is. Someone roll a d10.
>>24791427>GW>Free shitNigga you high?
>>24791484>>24791491yeah, it actually happened at the jambore, they had a neato statue rather than an inflatable dude.
>>24791427The Boy Scouts are fucking hypocrites. I'm glad I quit.
>>24791484>>24791491yep, they were. they were doing a WAAAAAAAAGGGGHHH contest (whoever WAAGHD the loudest) and they were throwing out sets to whoever was loud.
After finding cheap real estate for the Ultramarines across all of Ultramar, Slash Gordon realised he had to serve the Imperium as a whole and so left to combat expensive properties all over the galaxy. To this day he wanders from the purest of shrine worlds to the darkest realms of daemons, bringing ruination to property sellers.
>>24791508>Strategic PrognosticationCaptain Slash Gordon's marines were built for a purpose, it seems - To slash prices, in response to a Tzeenchian monopoly!How about a d100 for when this happened?
>>24791499I can believe this. They wanna hook the kids with rich parents in. Smart move in my opinion.
>>24791534Are you from some kind of bizzaro earth anon?
Many Astarte's are in favor of Slash Gordon, for if not for him, many Home-worlds and Fortresses would never be able to be fully protected by Imperiums 1st Bank.
>>24791558they only threw out about a total of 20, about 2 preds, 3 dreads, 5 trukks, and assorted ork and marine squads
Well, I e-mailed GW customer support about this. I'm honestly not expecting a response other than the standard, generic, pre-generated response. Assuming that they do something about this, this would be a situation where GW are unquestionably in the right. However, there's a chance that this might not be actionable. Copyright law is weird and there's definitely a chance that this "Slash Gordon" character is changed just enough to avoid a lawsuit.

>>24791573I'm pretty sure GW's trademarks don't extend into the field of home sales.
>>24790855No matter how much GW wants you to think otherwise.
"They shall be my finest salesmen, these men who give of themselves to me. Like money I shall use them and in the furnace of sales make them. They shall be of powerful deals and adamantine frugality. In great deals I shall clad them and with the mightiest commercials they will be armed. They will be untouched by bartering or bargaining; no overpriced options shall blight them. They shall have such marketing, ad campaigns and billboards that no competitor can best them in sales. They are my bulwark against the Competition. They are the Defenders of Good Prices. They are my Value Marines and they shall know no overpriced markup.

>>24791499I call bullshit. Can you back that HERETICAL accusation of FREE emperors finest?
>>24791836Oh god, Slash Gordon actually is an Ultrasmurf? I'm dying of laughter.
Do they make fierce use of artillery to flatten the ground to suit new housing projects?
>>24791028At least its not a beaky.
The codex astartes names this manoeuvre second mortgage!
After that, they deep strike the houses. It only takes a servitor 30 seconds to 5 minutes! The joys of pre-fab housing!

>>24791847>Master of Sanctity >What even is...?Slash Gordon - A man so dedicated to the glorious purity of paperwork, the sanctity, if you would, of an entire sector's writings.It is no wonder that he was attracted to the errors appearing in the Home Loans department of the Administratum. Truly, he understood more than most the deep impact of such corruption.For weeks, months, years, he spent entombed in libraries, becoming the holy terror of Adepts across the sector. Finally, he found it: the ghost in the machine, the terrible Daemon Lord of Paperwork! For three days and nights he fought the demon, nothing but a pen-knife and a broken typewriter to his arsenal. Finally, he trapped the daemon in an integer overflow, but not without cost: Trapped within a living void into the Warp caused by sacrilege of the Emperor's own papyrus, he spoke a prophecy to the few humans still alive to hear his words. This prophecy is what lead to the founding of our chapter, that lead to an entire chapter dedicated to the art of the Deal.>Roll for Homeworld

While they shall forever wander the stars keeping the faith, they never shall know the warmth of owning their own home.But fear not!

>>24792486Even though they are mighty space mortgage marines Slash Gordon's chapter is constantly pressed in a hyper agressive housing environment. Heresy and corruption lurks everywhere, from bad credit, to misplaced paperwork. Therefore the chapter needs an unusually large number of Mortgagiers to the needs of the Emperor's faithful.

So have we decided what the mount is?
I TRUST SLASH GORDAN
>>24793545The anon reading from the books said it was a bird of some kind, but others suggest a big armored pachyderm of some kind. No consensus as of yet.

>>24793625I'd cut the pear in half and say : Land raiders with bulldozer blade
>>24793678>>24793697Maybe compromise and say they love their bulldozers and ride them into battle, but the ancestral bird is part of their logo?

>>24793743>SLASH, SLASH I LOVE YOU, BUT WE ONLY HAVE FOURTEEN HOURS TO SAVE ON LAND PRICES
>>24793732Maybe the "mount" is an anti-stork who flies around delivering forclosure and building condemnation notices!
>>24791640>>24791649>>24791650Khorne, Tzeentch, Slaanesh
The mount is a giant tortoise or snail. Massive shell it lives in, when it dies the shell can be reappropriated to be sold on the house market.
>>24793820aw shit son
I used to wonder what a true 'best thread on /tg/' would look like. Tonight, I have found my answer.
>>24793840The only being not involved is Nurgle... So, our chapter is blessed by Violence, Excess, and Change alike. Home is always something to better, something to win.
>>24793828one vote for this
>>24793828How about a turtle/eagle? Uses both the bird and turtle angle
>>24793828The turtles replace our Rhinos, giant transports with a single marine riding it with a pintle-mounted bolter and 10 of his buddies.Maybe Russes?Demolishers are right out, we need our dozer blades.
>>24794221I said birds because it was SUCH a random roll. So, birds. Because why not?I imagine them replacing Bike squads. Because why not.I was hoping for a better idea, and two have surfaced that make more sense - Turtles for the home angle, and Pachyderms for the demolition.Too many animals and we start looking like a zoo. I guess animals need homes too...
EVEN IN DEATH, I STILL SAVE.
Do we have a name yet? Or mount first?
>>24794557Neither.Sons of Sub-Prime came incredibly randomly earlier, and noone's said a thing yet. Although, the business that created Slash Gordon is by Clayton Homes, by Landmark Creations. Could Clayton be the name of their fleet?
>>24794346I think we should go with turtles and only turtles.Giant, cosmic space turtles, ridden into battle, when they die their shells are rebuilt into housing, or become parts of the marines armor. Specifically the chestplates and dreadnought casings, because after all, home is where the heart is.
>>24792816So they're deal is they are traveling, overly happy, salesman marines?
>>24794661Does that mean they'd be willing to trade with Tau, or would they stage hostile corporate takeovers of the Earth caste?
>>24794661This is 40k. The happiness isn't real, but it's drilled into the marines day after day. Be happy. Smile. Act thrilled. Happiness is forced upon them, it becomes a part of their character over the centuries. Forever to do deals as the happy employee,l forever to smile in the face of death and corruption. that is the fate of these marines.
>>24794732Hence the smiley face re-breather grates
>>24792771>>24794637Turtles with bulldozer blades. Dozer turtles, even.
>>24794913How about turtle-birds with bulldozer blades?We'll call 'em bulldover turtles.Wait, no, that's stupid.
Someone please archive this.
>>24794691>stage hostile corporate takeovers of the Earth casteIn the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war.
>>24794816Sometimes, Happiness is too much for the more weak-minded Astartes. After hundreds of years wearing the Guise of the Happy Salesman, they will snap, as it is. Imagine, if you will, a genetic super-human, trained by the best minds of Humankind, gifted with the best technology and blessed with the strength of ages. All of this, suddenly and ferociously directed to the sheer act of making a profit NO MATTER THE COST. Entire planets sold into slavery, nonprofitable ventures burned into the superstructure, droves of potential customers torn to pieces for the immediate bottom line.These marines are placed in a special squadron, given wings so that they may launch themselves at the enemies of mankind rather than the helpless targets they'd otherwise choose. They will throw themselves upon their foes with a smile on their faces, Happiness turned into pure force of destruction against Chaos, the Xenos, the Heretic. The Black Rage, as it's known to these marines, a symptom of constantly living to get their profits 'in the black.' Oddly enough, the Blood Angels find this absolutely fucking hilarious, but scientific inquiry and the occasional bribe have brought no answers as to why.
>>24794913Can we put guns on dozer turtles?Demolisher cannons?[/spoilers}
>>24794956Wait, wait - Instead of the Stormraven, we have planes made by the shells of the larger turtles, given mechanical wings. the Turtle Tempest fighter is a staple of supporting vehicles amongst these marines...
>>24794995I like this.
>>24794996That's dangerously orky, but as long as it has skulls, I like it.
Air Support, reporting in.
>>24794964So they have to look a TV pitchman in order to not wear their helmet?I want to see a Vince marine now.
>>24794913IF they are fleet based where do the turtles come from?
>>24795161Space Turtles, duh.
>>24795208So like sea turtles but in space?
>>24795161They were found on crusade. On a lonely planet in the Calixis sector, the Marines found a large creature that figured heavily in their urbanization of the planet. However, once they had done their duty, they found that the creatures no longer had a home, despite their incredible resilience and doglike loyalty. Taking pity on the creatures, and seeing something of their own plight in the creatures as well as a reminder of their eternal mission, they took the creatures with them on their crusade. Ever useful, every vigilant, and ever their worthy companions.
The Emperor demands that this thread be archived
>>24790968In a Deathwatch game I was running, the kill team hotwired a bunch of cars and drove them around a Hive city.They had to tear off the doors and most of the roof to fit.
So, any new thoughts on a name for the chapter? Best one that's come up is Sons of Sub Primus, because it's a riff on an already-established chapter.
>>24795645The Astral Turtles?
>>24795619May you ascend to my side, child
>>24795629They broke their tank when they ran over a chaos dreadnought.
>>24795664>>24795645>>24795645I like the Sons of Sub Primus.Could we have Remaxicators instead of terminators?
>>24795757Remaxicators are acceptable. No Librarians either: Instead, accountants, who perform Miracles of the Emperor simply by using the right paperwork.
I like the Iron Marshals, give them the image of them being space Westerners, their mobile homes also doubling as war-wagons.
>>24795805Mobile homes instead of rhinos?
THE GRIMACING GRILLESOr the Expansion Warriors, since they're based on an inflatable man and they expand into new markets and expand business into new planets.
>>24795828>space marines riding into battle in armoured RVsMake it happen.
>>24795828or mobile homes towed by rhinos. The Rhinos are filled with whatever business crap they use, and the marines are actually in the mobile homes.
>>24795828Makes much more sense than the turtles, TBH.As interesting as that is, it's a little excessive to keep adding weird things to an already weird chapter.
>>24795868This makes for a good rule: if a rhino is destroyed, it does not by default mean that the marines are.However, I think it should mean they suffer some sort of penalty as a result of losing a mobile office.
>>24795880>it's a little excessive to keep adding weird things to an already weird chapter.and excess is Slaanesh worshiphowever, we're already blessed by Slaanesh >>24793820 so no worries
>>24795905It means that they, on average, will be piling out of the mobile home 4-6 inches behind the rhino, not to mention it's a much larger target.An interesting option, to say the least.
>>24795940"Foreclosure" should be a special ability that gives them some sort of capturing bonus as long as the offices are intact.
>>24795905I can see it, the Iron Marshals maybe use a Land Raider to tow a column of Rhinos chained to each other up behind it, like an armored train of death, and it then forms up in a convex war-wagon formation, the Marines pulling out into the center to set up a firing line. When they secure an area, the Rhinos unchain up, and are used for dozerblade duty, and leveling the area for new development work.
>>24796033Maybe Gold Marshals, or Land Marshals instead. Iron Marshals draws up the Iron Hands chapter, but we rolled lineage to Salamanders instead.Other than that, Iike the general idea, even if it's just on the fluff angles.
>>24796114Blazing Marshals perhaps. One part because of the Salamander heritage, one part because of Blazing Saddles.
>>24795694I wish I had words for this. I really and truly do.Lolworty captcha: 'New manenyou'
>>24796148I endorse it.
>>24796148Blazing Marshalls! Blazing a trail across the Galaxy, bringing the dream of home ownership to every human! Whether it involves uprooting the current inhabitants, burning the inferior current-houses to the ground, or gathering up for a crusade to strike fear into the hearts of those with bad credit scores, Marshal your courage, young adepts, and strike into your new duties!
The Fortifiers.Land Traders.The Land Lords.
>>24791530>organization that imposes moral values>morally consistentchoose one.
>>24796169>>24796148This clashes with the imagery of a bunch of accountants and realtors unless we split the chapter into parts with discrete purposes. May I propose Accountants and the Marshals to start with?Marshals would specialize in foreclosing on enemy territory as suggested by >>24796021Accountants are the leaders and librarians, with Remaxicators being the terminator and special ops wing as suggested by >>24795799Together, these branches serve to protect the Emperor's Real-estate
Chapter name should be Homemakers.>taomyss Boarding
>>24790756SLASH GORDON IS NOW CANON
>>24796341Shit name and nobody cares about your captcha.
>>24796322That could make sense. We're not Codex-adherent and we have way too many Marines anyhow, and there was a notion of having half of the squadrons Accountants and half of them normal battle-brothers anyways.In that case, we're back to names. Clayton Homes, for the blimp? Maybe something to do with our dead hero, Gordon's Heroes or Slash Marines or summat?
>>24796379>no one cares>tao miss boarding>it's actually 40k relevantDo you hate /tg/?
Street Dragons, the last word in urban renewal. With wisdom and sagacity they provide affordable prices for all the Imperium's citizens. With cleansing flame and flashing steel they level low-income dens of heresy and pave over for new generations of the Emperor's faithful to settle in.
>>24796424Ooh, that's not bad. Also comes in from a different angle, Anon you're all right.Dragons? Streets? Suburbs? Urban Dragons?Other ideas:the House Hunters? no, that's dumb, excuse me as I flagellate myself...
I keep thinking of Vogon Constructor Fleets.
>>24796461House hunting implies looking to buy a house. We're selling manufactured homes.

>>24796398>>24796376>Adeptus EstatesYou have performed exterminatus on my sides.Could Sons of Sub Primus work?Gordon's Heroes sounds too half-life, and Slash Marines implies that they sit around writing gay fan fiction all day.
>>24796461Slash Dragons! Whether slashing heretics and then condemning their buildings for demolition, or slashing prices on the new housing for Imperial citizens, they are the final word in urban renewal.
>>24796519>>24796461House hunters would be a good name for a successor chapter that focuses on capturing / foreclosing on enemy territory.
>>24796376That got the sides of the empirium, Chaos gods, Hive Mind, and the Emperor himself
>>24796513Slash Constructor? Constructor Dragons? Dammit, there's a way to work this!Steel Constructor? Constructor Legion?BY MY BEARD there's a name in here.
>>24796584I dig it. Slash Dragons.It's practically too cool for a bunch of home loan marines, but on the other hand, IT'S THE ONLY NAME COOL ENOUGH
>>24796550>>24796614>>24796376Why do these assholes even have to be a standard chapter? I mean, the grey knights got founded to deal with demons and shit. The Adeptus Custodes deal with the golden throne on earth.Why don't we just say these guys are the fucking Adeptus Estates, apart and separate from the rest of the marines, and be done with it?Hell, then we can even have different orders as in the inquisition.
>>24796668Slash Dragons still sounds like they write gay fanfic.Price Slashers?
>Chapter Master named Slash>Slash in the chapter nameNo. And Slash in the chapter name is just making me think of slash fiction like was said earlier.
>>24796376Battle Brothers!Space Marines! Today, the enemy is at our door!Our neighborhood has been prepared in the event that the enemy should be so bold and foolish. We have placed numerous realtors, allowing for multiple, simultaneous, and devastating defensive deep savings.The Codex Estates names this maneuver "Steal Pricing."
>>24796679Adeptus Estates is a great name, but they still need something to call themselves. The Custodes aren't technically a chapter and the Grey Knights are, well, the Grey Knights, not the entirety of Ordos Xenos.Ooh, the Land Knights? Knights of Ownership? We could be knights, guys.or just Adeptus Estates, too important for seperate names.
Backstory: Homeworld of Claytonus was ravaged by war, they had to make every bit of shelter count, giving them a real appreciation for architecture and fortifications. When even the rudimentary shelters they could find were destroyed, they built their own from wreckage. They are the Claytonus Constructors and they shall know no fear.
>>24796707If they were the Slash Angels, sure. I think you're the main one thinking about this though.
>>24796679> then we can even have different orders as in the inquisition>Inquisition sanctioned Astrates salesmen
>>24796707>>24796695Price Slashers seems to fix it. Slash is only used to mean gay as a prefix. As to Slash Gordon, it's already a pun that evokes something different so I think Slash Gordon is indeed canon.
>>24796810We'd work with the Witchhunters, for some reason I'm sure has nothing to do with love of fire, due to us rolling up Sisters of Battle as allies. I can work with this. Witchhunters clear the estates and we settle 'em. It's not like the Inquisition NEVER gets along, or something...
>>24796765Someone please record and animate this.
>>24796800You should be.
>>24796765>Brokerage Brothers!>Sales Marines! Today, the enemy is at our door!>Our neighborhood has been prepared in the event that the enemy should be so bold and foolish. We have placed numerous realtors, allowing for multiple, simultaneous, and devastating defensive deep savings.>The Codex Estates names this maneuver "Steal Pricing."ftfy.
>>24796778>Adeptus Estates, too important for seperate namesI like this.
>>24796978Slash Gordon demands you buy from him.
So are we sticking with turtles or not?
>>24797758What do turtles have to do with manufactured homes?
>>24797793The idea was to use a beast that carried around its own mobile home, a la the Marines themselves.
>>24797758I think that this post mostly sums it up: >>24797793I think they can stick around as a minor symbolic flourish for armor detailing and heraldry, but not much else. Why? Turtles take their homes with them, much like the Adeptus Estates take their Battle Winnebagos with them towed by Rhinos. Leaders can have some as pets maybe?
>>24797883>Leaders can have some as pets maybe?This gives me an (awful) idea! What if we used turtles as counts-as thunderwolves, or even thunderwolf cavalry?
AVE MINIMUM ELIT! AVE LOREM MAXIMUM! AVE IMPERATOR! AVE SLASH GORDON!
>>24798015Congratulations, we have a winner.The Adeptus Estates use StormTurtle Cavalry, as their unique mounts.They put dozer blades on all their vehicles.they carry winnebagos behind their Rhinos.And they be massive pimpin'.AVE IMPERATOR
