After a century of servitude, Space Marine realizes he is hollow, he has nothing. He knows there are enemies of the Empire, he knows his oaths, but he also realizes there will always be enemies, Ruinous powers, greenskins and alike while his time is, after all, limited. He wants a normal life with a normal woman on some simple agri-world. He wants some children to remain after he is gone. What happens, /tg/?
>>27021165Marines can't breed anyway
>>27021165it just does not happen. well not outside of shitty fannon.
His CO slaps some fucking sense into him. He is a weapon and a shield for all of Humanity. That is much more important than MUH FEELINGS. Besides, he wouldn't be able to make it through the recruitment process without these kinds of things popping up.
>>27021165HOWDLY-DOODLY SPACE MARINOITS PAPA NURGLEIS LIFE GETTING YOU DOWN? EMPRA THIS, METAL BOXES THAT?EVER WISHED IT COULD ALL JUST, WELL, STOPBOY, DO I HAVE A DEAL FOR YOU
He stops being a little bitch and gets his ass back to defending the Empire.
HERESY GROWS FROM IDLENESS
>>27021165Is that Blood Angel Rutger Hauer?
I admit I have incredibly limited 40k knowledge but Marines are sterile are they not?
>>27021195What kind of deal do you have for me?>I can only think of Nurgle as Kaysen from Deadly Premonitions
>>27021165He remembers that he's constantly told that he's the protector and fighter of mankind and that his squad captain really needs him to push this fucking lictor of him before.
>>27021165He goes renegade and falls to Chaos.
>>27021165Brother, what is all this talk of settling down?Is not a life of service to the Emperor enough?If you wanted a wife and child, you should have joined the Imperial Guard, then you could have gone off to die on some Emperor-forsaken world where no-one will even bury your corpse, leaving your family at home to become enslaved by Dark Eldar or sacrificed to the Blood God.By the way, don't invite Varro Tigurius to poker nights, Psykers always cheat...
>>27021263Have you seen my new thong? Feels like I'm wearing nothing at all!
>>27021298OI!DERE'Z A PUDGY FING 'ERE WOT WANTS STOMPIN'.MORK?!MORK! WHERE IZ YA, YA GIT!
>>27021165Heresy, that's what happens.
>>27021182Yeah because no space marine ever falls to chaos since the heresy, you know they have all maintained such unshakeable faith in the emperor and their duty they work endlessly for the EmprahAny other beliefs are crazy
>>27021165He takes a two week vacation with no pay, goes to Sub-sector Thainesia, does some things he'd rather forget, and then he goes back to serving the Emperor.
>>27021380He only saw Venessa once again after that...He was part of a liberation fleet, she was flirting with two Space Wolves...He put a bolter round through her head and called it quits.STORY OF MY FUCKING LIFE!
>>27021380What happens in Segmentum Obscurus, stays obscurus.
>>27021169Depends on which fluff and chapter Older fluff said they could and it has never been retconned as far as I knowThe only thing is they are psycho indoctrinated to not feel the urges and in some chapters chem gelded, the salamanders tried a breeding program but it had no higher rate of suitable aspirants so they scrapped it
>>27021358Yeah, but Chaos is Chaos, it's a corruptive force, not just some shitty muh legacy, when he already has a far grander one in saving entire worlds of people.
>>27021448Their reasons for falling to chaos can be simple shit like that, not everyone falls to chaos for the desire to rape the universe or kill the emperor
>>27021165>He wants a normal life with a normal woman on some simple agri-world. No he doesn't. Because this:>He knows there are enemies of the Empire, he knows his oaths, and he also realizes there will always be enemiesReally, the only thing that'll pull a Spess Muhreen away from the Chatper is Chaos (or the Inquisition). Chaos is the perfect outlet for his fanatical devotion and crazy, genetically-enhanced drive to kill things. But living on a FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARM? Please.
>>27021467Nah, I don't agree. They already have a legacy, their deeds and the passing on of their gene-seed and wargear. They've already got a family, and one that will remember them for far longer than some dirt farmers.
>>27021500> Chaos god of mundane things
>>27021521To some it doesn't matterSome people want to leave a different legacy
>>27021646Those people are not psycho indoctrinated. There's nothing a family could offer that a chapter could not.
>>27021500Wasn't there a thing in the Ultramarines novels where Uriel Ventris has a dream about growing old and living on a farm?Something about what would have happened if he hadn't become an Ultramarine
>Sounds like it's time for him to get one of these:http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Rite_of_Pure_Thought
>>27021618I COULD GRANT ALL THOSE MUNDANE THINGS AND SIMPLE PLEASURES. IF I EXISTED. BUT I DON'T.SO IGNORE ME.IGNORE ME!
>>27021697Maybe he does exist, what if it is the chaos god of boredom?There's apparently thousands of "chaos gods" but only the big 4 are really sentient/apparent everywhere
>>27021662Psycho indoctrination isn't perfect, they have shown that beforeMaybe it faded, maybe it didn't take properly in the first placeThe main thing is the 40k universe is big enough that near anything can happen, not that a marine would be allowed to retire and live out his days on a farm they would probably just tear his gene seed out and send him on a suicide mission or something but it doesn't stop the possibility of him wanting the quiet end>>27021618Sounds like something Tzeentch would make a daemon prince for
>>27021697START RUNNIN', YA GROT-SQUEALER!I'Z GONNA COUNT TER ONE, DEN ME FISTS ARE GONNA FIND YER FACE!
>>27021618WHENEVER AN ARBITE HAS TO SIT DOWN AND DO PAPERWORK, I AM THEREWHENEVER AN ADEPTUS ASTARTE TAKES A NAP, I AM THEREWHENEVER THERE ARE FORMS TO BE FILLED, CLOTHES TO BE FOLDED, GROCERIES TO BE BOUGHT, OR LINES TO BE WAITED IN, I AM THERE.
>>27021668Yeah there are bits where he reflects on what his life would have been like had he not become a marine, then he gets back to being one of the few decent ultras in existence by being an actual human
>>27021712HAH, YOU CAN'T PUNCH A FACE THAT DOESN'T EXIST.I WOULD LAUGH AT YOU, WERE I A THING THAT EXISTED AND THUS COULD LAUGH, BUT I AM NOT, SO I CAN'T, SO I WON'T.IGNORE THIS.
>>27021732Hey, it's cool man. I'm sure SOMEONE will launch a Back Crusade in your name soon.
>>27021725List of decent Ultramarines:* Uriel Ventris* Pasanius Lysane* That other one who is also one of Uriel's sergeants, you know the one...* Captain Titus* Sergeant Sidonus* Robot Guillettemuff (HAHAHA no.)* That one Chaplain who's sometimes with Uriel who takes no shit and knows how to make bitches shut the fuck up.
>>27021756I though the point of Ultramarines is that they could not relate to normal humans; they consider themselves the pinnacle of Astartes to the extent that even other Chapters have difficulty being near them.
>>27021778Bull-fucking-shit.Only the big shits and Mac-Daddy say that.Titus and Ventris aren't so high and mighty.Besides, Iron Warriors are closer to what you're describing than Ultrasmurfs. There will beo ther chapters like that too
>>27021808Fuck off Leandros.
>>27021732I SAYZ I CAN, SO I CAN!DON'T YOU'Z KNOW NUFIN' ABOUT ORKZ?!
>>27021802>Iron Warriors are closer to what you're describing than Ultrasmurfs.No, they're not.
>>27021818>Captain Titus as he is led off in an Inquisitor's ship never to be seen again.
>>27021828"Actually, the only reason for that is that GW won't progress into the 42nd millennium.But in this anon's continuity, I return as an unnamed Deathwatch Black Shield, with my past only vaguely hinted at."
>>27021165He abandons his Chapter.He goes into hiding.He works a farm on the backwater of a backwater world and meets a women.They live happily together.The Inquisition comes looking for him.They runsShe is not as strong as he is. Exposure, poor food and bad water takes her.He swears black oaths to the darkness.Khorne answers.A millennium later he is still raging at the universe. Hate has blinded him. He can no longer remember the Chapter, the farm or the face of his wife. On some burned out hulk he finally takes his place as prime amongst Khornes faithful, reality convulses, a Daemon Prince is born.
ISOLATION WITH THE PAIN GLOVE UNTIL YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR OATHS, BROTHER
>>27021840And you know, they didn't want a sequel conflicting with development, or marketing of their ill-fated MMO. Titus was undone by bureaucracy.
>>27021828> "Wait, this isn't my chapter ...">>27021808>Leandroswastechnicallyrightbutpoliticallywrong
>>27021862Both in reality, and in universe.It's like poetry, it rhymes
>>27021862"I could still be there in your continuity, anon.You could even write a faggy fanfic about me and Mira, if you want.Though the unnamed Black Shield idea is a lot better."
>>27021165>>27021182"I am pleased you came to me with these thoughts, brother.""It is difficult, chaplain.""Difficult. Difficult because...you feel that you have failed your brothers?""Because it is a failure...to admit that I feel I have no more strength to give.""Walk with me, brother.">leads the space marine to the outer decks of the battle-barge, there to look out into space."What is that, down there?""An agri-world.""Population?""A mere four billion.""Four billion...space marines, such as you and I?""No. Four billion normal people. Citizens of the Imperium.""Why?""...I fail to follow you, chaplain.""Why are there four billion people down there, brother? Why not three, or one, or even less?""Because...because we intervened.""We did. By our hand was a world saved. By our actions, Four billion live today that would not have without our strength.">lifts crozius and gestures"Look out there at the stars, brother. They are beautiful, are they not? And yet they conceal such dark things.""The enemies of humanity.""Yes. Yes, brother, it is true that there shall always be enemies. There shall always be xenos and traitors who seek to bring down the whole of humanity. And they would be successful, were it not for one thing.""The Astartes.""The Astartes...and all those who would stand with us. We, the soldiers, the defenders of humanity, we form a wall that holds the weak and the innocent apart from that which would destroy them. We are bricks, if you will, and mortar. One brick, two, a thousand, a million, a billion...uncountable numbers. And yet...should one single brick crumble...""...the wall itself would follow soon after?""Speak your thoughts, brother.""I am...struck. By the childish desire to say that it is unfair. This manner of burden."
>>27021868He was pretty much all wrong. There are guys whose job it is to investigate the taint of chaos inside the chapter. You're supposed to report it to them. He went over their heads in order to get Titus out of the way so he could set about on his plan to convert the Ultramarines to Chaos.
>>27021885"It is a human desire, brother. The world is far from fair. It is unfair. Manifestly unfair. It heaps scorn and pain upon us all. We, the brave, the chosen few, we step forth and bear this weight so that our little brothers and sisters may live their lives with a bit less upon their own shoulders.""And so...am I so weak, brother-chaplain, that I cannot shoulder my share of this burden.""You are not the first man to come to me with such confession, brother, and you will not be the last. You are reaching a moment of doubt that comes to many Astartes in their long years of war. It is not wrong to doubt. It is not wrong to look across what seems a vast gulf between ourselves and such figures as the Emperor, or the primarchs, or the great heroes of the Adeptus Astartes and wonder, 'do I measure up?'">tap-tap of the crozius upon one pauldron"When it becomes wrong, brother, is the moment we allow these doubts and these burdens to overcome us. The true glory of humanity is to recognize these doubts and embrace ourselves as imperfect beings, and to find strength despite such burdens. Look to your squadmates. To your sergeant. Ask them, 'from whence do you draw your strength, brother?' Have faith that they will shore up your doubts, as mortar shores up the strength of mere bricks. Take strength from them, and in time know that you shall give it back in their own hour of need. And if need be, think on the four billion people of an agri-world, and how they live for one more day, even just one more hour, thanks to the willingness of a select few, such as yourself, to defend them. That is the essence of true heroism.""I...I must think on this, brother-chaplain.""Do. Reflect and consider, and return to me in a week's time. Then we shall talk once more.">the chaplain's crozius taps softly against the decking as he departs
>>27021238Nope. Just fuck loads of propaganda and hyposuggestion make then think girls (and guys) have cooties.>>27021199"We're Space Marines, damnit! Stop having feelings over there!">>27021433Yet the 6th Edition Daemons dex says that Not-Draigo was "still a man" and was still hot for the Daemonettes in Slaanesh Realm.>>27021724What's The God of Mundane Things sign?

>>27021889>Yet the 6th Edition Daemons dex says that Not-Draigo was "still a man" and was still hot for the Daemonettes in Slaanesh Realm.Probably a retarded Legion era Marine, for the Daemonettes found no purchase in the actual Draigo's soul.
>>27021433>the salamanders tried a breeding program but it had no higher rate of suitable aspirants so they scrapped itWhere was this? I've seen a lot of people citing stuff about Salamanders having kids but never any citations.
>>27021885>>27021887Thoroughly enjoyed this.
>>27021893OH GOD EMPEROR YES!I CAN'T BELIEVE I FUCKING FORGOT HIM!Maintaining some degree of calm, his last cutscene, he made an amazing speech even though it was technically General Sturn's speech...
>>27021868He wasn't right. You report Chaos to Librarians, not directly to the Inquisition.Besides, that Inquisitor is actually a daemon. If fluff is to be believed.
>>27021165Clearly the psycho-indoctrination has failed to take root.Conversion to servitor. If that option is not possible, then immediate termination to prevent the spread of heresy.
>>27021887>it is not wrong to doubtheresyblessed be the mind too small to doubt
>>27021900>coffee mugA red stapler
>>27021933Drogan was a daemon.Thrax was just some dick that came in at the last cutscene and pissed all over a good ending.
>>27021949An Inqusitor Thrax was possessed by a daemon in older fluff.

>>27021885>>27021887It's well-written, and it wouldn't surprise me if something like that already happened.>>27021934Chaplains don't terminate every Space Marine that comes to question the sense of his life, especially when it's something like that.
>>27021823I KNOW MORE THAN YOU IT SEEMS. FOR YOU ARE TOO EASILY SHAPED BY HUMAN THOUGHT, THEREFORE YOU CANNOT BE THE REAL GORK.EVERYONE KNOWS ORK TECH WORKS BECAUSE "DA ORKS KNOW WOT WORKZ", NOT BECAUSE OF SOME MYSTIC TZEENTCH-LIKE FIELD.YOU MUST BE TZEENTCH, TRYING TO GET ME TO EXIST. YOU FOOLISH FOOL.
>>27021982TODEH WE SHALL STEAL THE ENEMEH!> Dunno why people dick so much about his voice, it's northern England, Yorkshire/Lancashire, roundabout that area.
>>27021987>this, good sir, is fucking epicplease, don't talk like that
>>27021978Wait, how have we moved on? You mean to me starting what the God of Mundane things has as his sign?I'm still hoping that somehow Relic were going to pull something off with Thrax being possessed and Leonadros being an Alpha Legion warrior.
Kind of sounds like Vulkan.The least Space Marineish of the Primarchs.
>>27022007Oh yeah, cause that plot twist would have been...cool.
>>27021949>and pissed all over a good endingAs is only proper, for in the grim darkness of the grim darkness there is only grim darkness.

>>27022007>God of Mundane signDone
>>27021808Why are you even in this Company Leandros?Did you steal that Crux Terminatus?Did you?GTFO Faggot.
>>27022041Just as planned
>>27022026and the grimmest rape with the darkest blood that escapes the ass that has gotten grim.
>>27022048He didn't even steal it, its on loan.Only reason he wanted Titus out of the way was so he could get one of the very few busty women in the Imperial Guard to suck his love stick.Didn't work, though, because he forgot that he was sterile and she thought he was a pile of shit anyway.
>>27022068Also she was busy being one of the few female characters in a video game not outragiously sexualized, with no romance options.
>>27022048It's clear he was merely a tool for one of the other Company Captains, used to oust Titus so they could plant a more agreeable officer.
>>27022090This is also true, though internet faggots do that anyway.Its pretty much unavoidable, there's a fetish for everything.This anon once found a very disturbing Thomas the Tank Engine fapfic which involved rape.The picture details the event that ensued.
His chaplain would basically slap the fight back into him. This is basically the non-combat application of chaplains.
>>27022116>This anon once found a very disturbing Thomas the Tank Engine fapfic which involved rape.The rape train has no brakes.jpg
>>27021921There was a reference in older army books and apparently in the Rynn's World book they bout it up as well
>>27021165>implying he has anything but a chem-shriveled catheter down there>implying he prefers women to his battle brothers>implying he knows anything about agri-worlds beyond how well that shit burns, and how much the biovessels headed there will love every morcel.
>>27021165>He wants a normal life with a normal woman on some simple agri-world. He wants some children to remain after he is gone.Maybe not the children thing, but I think in the end he could grow bored of being only revered as a superhuman killer and not loved as an human.Seriously, imagine a little girl, or even a woman comes up to a space marine and hug him to thank him about saving her family. That could be fucking traumatizing for a guy who has been indoctrinated that much.
>>27022405OH FUCK. Populace has turned on us. MISSION FAILURE, DECLARING WORLD UNCLEANLEAVE NOTHING
>>27021206Do not bring that filth into my realm!
>>27022418Seriously I can't help myself but ask how Space Marines behave around friendly civilians. Not friendly crowds of civilians, but smaller groups, like in small villages.
>>27022461Like gigantic douches in most cases."we are superior" "we are your lords" "we can kill any of you with one finger" "why aren't you on your knees polishing our boot plates?"The Astartes chapters are rife with heresy and mutation, yet left to roam the galaxy in their unclean and unsound selves pretending that they are above even the Inquisition, even though the latter answered to naught but The Emperor and Malcador The Hero themselves, who reigned high above the Adeptus Terra.
>>27022461I imagine most civilians would not even approach them. Probably lots of falling to knees and praying, with signs of aquila flashing.
>>27021900>A coffee mug.
>>27022461one of the high points in Brothers of the Snake is when the main space marine squad of the book gets sent on diplomatic duty to attend the crowning of a new monarch on one of the nearby sector worlds.They're flummoxed at the soft beds and royal treatment, and when the newly-minted boy king invites them to mingle->"Mingle? What in the Emperor's name does that mean?"-with the crowd at the gala, they proceed to stand rock-solid for the next hour while the court peers at them and occasionally one of the braver attendees comes forward to touch their armor in reverence.Then the sergeant notices an Inquisitor he recognizes slinking off into a nearby hall and takes off after him, totally without warning much to the crowd's shock.
>>27022493Idk about that, but probably.>>27022461Yes but in the case someone approach them without dropping to their knees ?
>>27022548with extreme suspicion. It's either an enemy or inquisition.
>>27022485With the exception of the Salamanders.>GREETINGS, FELLOW SERVANT OF THE EMPEROR>IT IS A FINE DAY
>>27022548meant to quote >>27022493
>>27022548I imagine they would ignore them. If anyone approached, the Marines would simply continue on their way. Astartes aren't going to be standing around some village square.
>>27022599And if they are to interact, let's say, with the local militia ?
>>27021165His company Chaplain sniffs out his heresy smacks seven shades of sense into him, gives him a good talking to about how he chose this life so that other people could have his dream. Space Marine being an indoctrinated via hypno/psy technology goes back to kicking ass and dies appropriately, his gene seed is harvested, new organs grown and implanted into a young neophyte the circle of life
>>27022643Don't they lead Guardsman on occasion? I imagine they'd treat PDFs in much the same way.That is to say, "Hey, what's up, we're going to go pray and train for a while. Talk to you when we need you to go clog a choke point with your bodies."
>>27022543Imagine the Space Marine in power armor drinking champaign and chatting with the peer.>VERY NICE DRESS INDEED DUCHESS, TOTALLY FITTING FOR THE SERVICE OF THE EMPEROR>Thanks a lot. What do you think about this year's trendy haircut ?>MY FAVOURITE HAIRCUT IS THE EMPERORS FAVOURITE HAIRCUT
>>27022650it should also be pointed out Space Marines often recruit looking for those with sociopathic or anti social personality disorders.
>>27021165Sounds like a warp tainted mind to me.
>>27022643Get info from local armed forces leader. Inform armed forces of their actions. Suggest tactics armed forces could practice to work in concert with the Astartes. Camps would be separate. No fraternization between soldiers. SM officers would interact with officers from PDF or Guard. Much of a Marine's routine would need to be kept secret from normal men.
>>27022668can't argue with that
>>27022650>implying Space Marines choose to be Space Marines
>>27022461>>27022643It depends on the Space Marine in question.
>>27022710about the only space marines who didn't choose to be space marines are the space wolves
>>27022751the point could be argued that make this choice as children around the ages of 10-14 but still consent is consent in the Imperium
>>27022751A good deal of Marine recruits are tribal warriors who fight each other, for unknown reasons, for the golden men from the sky. The winners are then variously beaten senseless, tranq'd, or forcefully marched into the hold of a ship.
>>27021165>He wants some children to remain after he is gone.Your geneseed is your legacy to the chapter. Every marine today is your brother, and every new marine is your son.
>>27022668"What do you think of the wine?""MY IMPLANTS RESIST ALL TOXINS, SO ITS DELITERIOUS EFFECTS HAVE NO HOLD ON ME, I AM A PERFECT WEAPON OF THE EMPEROR. ALSO, A HINT OF NUTMEG"
>>27021165He will leave, he wills shed his armour and find life as a normal, albeit, larger thn is typical man. Then he will be hunted down and shot for heresy by his brothers.>There are no happy endings in 40k
What happens when a marine defects to chaos? I'd imagine a warband wouldn't exactly treat him kindly even though he wants to join their side, loyalist hate and all that
>>27022799Depends on how much you tip.
>>27021165Wait, space marines don't have nano bots in their blood keeping them alive indefinitely?No wonder I never got into 40k. It sounds like the most unrealistic future ever, but I guess if you like fantasy then that's cool. Seems pretty boring if regular old space marines didn't have access to immortality (in the sense that you cannot die of natural causes, but obliterating someone's body can't be recovered from, however major wounds can such as getting your head cut off).
>>27022787and a good more know what they do for the emperor because some missionary ecclisarchy preist probably told them that their "Sun God" was the Emperor, look at Blood Angel recruits, they know it's for Sanguinius and the Emperor, tribes very likely develop traditions and send their kids off with pride in their hearts hoping they make it.
>>27022818Nah, the Imperium's tech is kind of messed up, they could make them ageless, but not immortal. Of course, even someone reduced to just a torso can still fight, as they grant such heroes the honour of being implanted into mechs.
>>27022799>too much grimdark
>>27022838it all depends on the Chapters recruiting methods
>>27022818as long as they are carrying their gene seed in them their virtually immortal
>>27022791"The stars are really beautiful, don't you think ? If I knew I would be one night looking at this splendour with one of the Emperor's chosen besides me... Oh sorry, my hearth is beating a bit too fast I guess""WHICH ONE OF THE TWO? ALSO STARS ARE FULL OF HERETICS AND XENOS. ARE YOU ONE OF THEM?"
>>27022787Reminds me of that Black Templar comic where they grab the guy from his pit-fighting ring or whatever and just say "HEY. WE'RE GONNA FUCK SHIT UP AND YOU'RE GONNA HELP US. GET IN THE BAG." and whoosh him away to be genetically modified and brainwashed into a super-soldier. Black Templars are so fucking metal.
>>27022839>>27022818yeah once upon a time they had a war with their AI machines and now Mankind doesn't build a computer that doesn't have an actual brain floating in a tank integrating with it. They don't trust things like nano bots, techno heresy
>>27022808I guess he just goes rogue, starts doing whatever the fuck he wants for a while until he finds a way to get more directly involved with the whole Chaos scene (like finding a cult on a planet he's terrorizing or something) and then networks the shit out of it.Or, maybe he was just wounded in battle and was taken away by Chaos forces before his brothers could suck out his glorious throbbing geneseed, then he got mind-broken into being a crazy-ass Khornate Berserker or something.Or, I mean, I imagine if you just stay with your chapter until they engage Chaos forces and then behead your squad and show up at the Chaos HQ with a sack full of their scalps they'd probably let you in.
>>27022902Well, the Admech do use some nanotech, including things going around healing them inside their blood stream.But fuck the marines, they're not Admech, they've got their own genetically altered super-soldiers for that.
>>27022902nano bots get created by rogue Mechanicum adept, they get possesed by a deamon, they replicate and take over a world not the Imperium's style
>>27021939Not everyone is blessed in that way, doesn't mean they are heretical
>>27022994look at Ciaphius Caine, dude's hates being a Commissar but is perceived as a hero of the Imperium
>>27021238it is assumed, I can't remember if it has been said officially or not.
>>27023011No one knows. Are you a bad enough dude to test Captain Fistus' dick?
>>27021238THQ disagreed. It really depends on the chapter and propaganda places them as demi gods so....
>>27022790I like how he did the pauldrons on this.
>>27023041That would make sense if the offspring of a SM was human. I don't remind any body-wide genetic manipulation in the SM formation process.
>>27023041I assume offspring would be human. Astartes are Astartes because of implants. Their DNA is still human.
>>27023092Geneseed presence might influence the offspring to be a prime candidate for being indoctrinated, at least.
>>27023021Monster cocks 10Space Marine Edition
>>27023120Yep, provided he sleeps with a "good" woman, at least he got 50% of a totally codex approved genetic material.
>>27023126Don't let that happen.
>>27022885>Did you hear about Planetary Governor collection of weapons. It has really ancient and exquisite pieces in it.>YOU CAN CALL ME A COLLECTIONAIRE TOO, MORTAL. I COLLECT WEAPONS AS TROPHIES OF SLAIN ENEMIES. THIS JAW BELONGED TO TYRANID WARRIOR I SLAIN EARLY THIS WEEK, JUST BEFORE EMPEROR'S DAY. AS YOU CAN SEE ICHOR HAS NOT DRIED YET.
>>27022485SM deff not above the Inquisition no one is. Depends on the chapter, Ultramarines like being called Lords, Imperial Fists don't. Most Legions were rife with mutation in the first place, Blood Angels, Space Wolves, Night Lords, Salamanders to name a few. Imperial Fist's came after the "death" of the Emprah
>>27022485Do not compare Sigilite's lapdogs to grandsons of Emperor himself.
>>27023219>Maybe you could come over next week for a garden party and a dinner at our mansion.>SURE I HOPE THERE WILL BE USEFUL INFORMATIONS IN THE MEAT
>>27023219"So, Mr Space Marine. You must have heard lots of interesting stories in your time around the galaxy.""I KNOW OF ONE, WELL, ACTUALLY I ATE THE ARM OF SOMEONE WHO KNEW IT, SO NOW I KNOW IT. AND IT'S NOT REALLY A STORY, BUT A JOKE.WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE HIVE. BECAUSE HE WAS A HERETIC.I DO NOT GET IT."
>>27022485Shut up Bastalek, no one likes you.
>>27023219There was a segment in one of the Eisenhorn books, Xenos, when the inquisitor encountered a SM Librarian.>"Shaven-headed, a giant of a man even without hisarmour, Brytnoth was nevertheless cordial and attentive, addressing me with respect and listening with genuine interest to my replies.I tried to do verbal justice to my memories of the experience, and additionally related the theories that Malahite had expounded duringthat fateful seance.Eschewing the luxury of a servitor scribe or clerk, Brytnoth made his own notes as he listened. I found myself engrossed watching thewarrior's paw working the dwarfed stylus almost delicately across the note-slate.We sat in my apartments for the sessions, which often lasted hours. Bequin brought in regular trays of hot mead or leaf infusions, andBrytnoth actually extended his little finger as he lifted the porcelain cups by the handle. He was to me the embodiment of war inpeacetime, a vast power bound into genteel behaviour, striving to prevent his awesome strength from breaking loose. He would lift thecup, small finger extended, consult his notes and ask another question before sipping.The fact that small finger was the size and shape of an Arbites' truncheon was beside the point."
>>27023005>claiming Ciaphas Cain, HERO OF THE IMPERIUM is not your saviour>2013That's heresy, Anon. Report to your Commissar for the Emperor's Justice immediately.
>>27023011Technically no, but they never do. For some chapters, at least, all the parts are working. Space Wolves are the big one, but in some older books the Salamanders were too.Curious that those two chapters seem to be the most in touch with the average Imperial citizen.
>>27022668His name is Torin and he served with distinction among the Wolfblade. Most of his fellow Space Wolves thought him somewhere between a touch queer and a total girlyman.
>>27023386The only commissar in my heart is Commissar General Cain, sir!
>>27023313''ALSO I HAVE NEVER SEEN A CHICKEN. I BELIEVE IT WAS SOME FOR OF MONSTROUS PREDATOR ON ANCIENT TERRA. LEGENDS TELL OF A HIGH RANKING SOLDIER KNOWN ONLY AS 'SANDERS' WHO WAS ABLE TO TAME THE BEASTS AND MAKE THEM EDIBLE BY ANCIENT MAN. TRULY A HERO OF MANKIND!
>>27023416Refusal to obey a direct order to consult with your commissar from a superior officer is grounds for immediate execution, as laid out in the Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer.
>>27023449>MONSTROUS PREDATOR ON ANCIENT TERRA>ON ANCIENT TERRA>ANCIENT TERRA>TERRA>Not "Holy Terra"Heretic scum.
>>27023413>total girlyman>for a Space Wolfwell, so maybe he wiped his face after eating someone else.
>>27023472>>27023480MY APOLOGIES, CIVILIAN. I SHALL CONSULT MY CHAPLAIN FOR ADEQUATE PUNISHMENT.
>>27023357Damn, interesting. Are "standard" battle brothers well-educated too ? What chapter is that anyway ?
>>27023357that is the cutest scene ever. Imagine this massive astartes being put into traditional tea-time ceremony. It's adorable!
>>27023488He wore perfume, drank wine, trimmed and groomed his beard and mustache, and even styled his hair.
>>27022842Too much? Or just the right amount?
>>27023738You mean, like, acting like a human being ?
>>27023778Hopefully orks are there to save the day in a humoristic fashion.
>>27023846>they're about to kill him.>SUDDENLY WAAAAAAAGH!!!!!>they all turn in suprise.>toss him the bolter>badass happens
Would a band of marines going renegade cause they think it is unworthy for the emperor to sit immobile on his throne be plausible at all? They go rogue or even turn to chaos in order to put him out of his misery so that he can be reborn / ascend in to godhood / whatever
>>27021756you forgot Lysimachus Cestus and his bff AntigesBros 4 lifeI liked theyir potrayal alot
>>27025082Sounds very Alpha Legion.But marines turning renegade because they think the Emperor is unworthy/a dick is certainly plausible, I'd say roll with it.
>>27021724I've thought about it - there really should be a Chaos God of boredom. It's a big part of most people's lives, as far as I can tell. For every man giving in to bloodthirsty rage, there are thousands sitting around, wondering when something interesting will happen.
>>27025290 Yeah Alpha Legion would be a good choice but "unfortunately" I have already converted some 2000p of renegade space wolves and is now trying to figure out a reason for them to go renegade.Wouldn't a chapter who value strength and battle prowess find it kinda disheartening to see their great leader comatose without any hope of recovering? I know they have no love for the Lords of Terra so turning against them wouldn't be much of a surprise
>>27025674Heresy breeds from idleness
>>27021939X being blessed doesn't imply that !X is heretical.
>>27021949Servo Skull audio tapes prove that Drogan was an actual Inquisitor actually working on a xenos scourging machine with a super warpy power source that was possessed and killed by a daemon while doing psychic stuff. Hence what Nemeroth says.>Ah, you think the Inquisitor a traitor? But Drogan has been dead since before you first met. You have been used by my puppet of flesh and bone.
>>27021165He takes a break and relaxes on planet Orlandicus VII or some shit. There's space theme parks somewhere, right?>BROTHER>YES, BROTHER>FEAST THINE EYES UPON YONDER STRUCTURE>MAGNIFICENT, BROTHER. PRAY TELL, WHAT MONIKER HAS BEEN BESTOWED UPON THIS GLORIOUS TRIBUTE TO ENJOYMENT AND MERRIMENT?>THE TOWER OF TERRA.
>>27021195oh god i don't know why i lol'd so hard but i did
>>27029011>EMPRAH'S PAULDRONS, BROTHER, WHAT MANNER OF SICKNESS HAS BEFALLEN YOU? SUCH LAUGHTER IS UNPRECEDENTED AMONG THE EMPEROR'S CHOSEN.>*sniff* GREAT PRIMARCHS, BROTHER *snicker* I CAN HARDLY CONTAIN MYSELF. BEHOLD THIS PURCHASE FROM THE GIFT SHOP.>WHAT IS IT?>...A METAL BOX.>MIGHTY CHORTLES
>>27023186oh god that helmetdoes that facemask translate everything the marine says into HUEHUEHUEHUEHUE?
>>27022899>that Black Templar comic where they grab the guy from his pit-fighting ringWhere is this?
