Am I retarded? I never saw that pic related looks like a stylized skull.
holy shit you're right
It flies over most people's heads.
>>53617449How am I supposed to live with this knowledge from now on?
>>53617449Not necessarily, just pretty dense.I thought Word Bearers were "World Bearers" for about six or seven years. Didn't know what "Bearers" meant either, since English isn't my first language.
>>53617536>"Wordl Bearers"Infinitely more badass.
>>53617536>>53617660>not naming your warband Word Eaters
>>53617449If Khornes symbol is suppose to look like skull then what are the other chaos gods symbols suppose to resemble?
>>53617536So would their primarch just be Atlas or what?
>>53619475>Nurgle: Stylized fly>Tzeentch: Stylized bird/flame>Slaanesh: Stylized futa porn.
>>53619475Slaanesh is reminiscent of a gender symbol, Nurgle is supposed to look like a fly's head, and Tzeentch is an eye.
>>53617660World Bearers would be a neat Loyalist chapter. Give them a vaguely Greek theme and make their Chapter icon Atlas holding up Holy Terra.Give them a thing for defense and fortifications (Imperial Fists successors?) and they hold up worlds throughout conflict.>>53619442No idea what these would be.
>>53617449>stylized skull>not just a sideways DKI mean, it makes sense considering that Khorne has no style, and he has no grace
>>53619634Upsidedown it's a dude with a flaming/spiky head.
>>53619501>chaos undivided: stylized anus
>>53619634This god has a funny face.
>>53619666He collects skullswhen he needs to
>>53619609Well, Space Marines can gain knowledge and memories by eating brains, right? So what about a chapter dedicated to accumulating knowledge that way?
>>53619832Honestly, they'd probably be a small Inquisitorial cabal dedicated to keeping certain insights and knowledge secret.Otherwise it's too much a joke name to make for a good serious Chapter name. Inquisitors are a little more eclectic in that regard.
How have I never noticed this...
>>53617449I saw an upside down smiling man years before I noticed the skull.
>>53617536no I refuse this was always called word bearers this must be some sort of reality retcon bullshit
>>53617449Who would have guessed it, a skull in Warhammer.
>>53624266Yeah, it IS the Word Bearers. He just thought they were the World Bearers.
>>53619696And swings his arms out to decapitate you*autistic monkey noise*
>>53617449You were just never sleep-deprived enough.
>>53617449No OP, you were just never sleep-deprived enough.
>>53617449You were just never sleep-deprived enough, OP.
You never lacked enough sleep, OP.
You were never a deep-sleep seeker op
You always had too much beddy bye bye time OP.
>>53617449I always thought it was a smiling stick figure man, upside down.
>>53617449That's not the original Khorne symbol. The original was not a stylized skull, it didn't have the teeth on the bottom.
>>53617536I THOUGHT THAT TOO UNTIL NOWI'VE PLAYED A WOR...LD BEARER ARMY FOR YEARS
Always thought it looked kinda like a lucha mask
You always slept too much op
>>53617449English isn't my first language and I thought the letter in bloodletter is that one from the alphabet and not someone lets out blood.
>>53617449I don't know what or who you are, but that makes two of us.Welcome to the Internet: where completely unknown anons can find common ground on the flimsiest things.
>>53626568When did they add teeth to it actually? I've never seen OP's rendition to my knowledge
>>53617449Aaaaand now that I also realize that, the symbol just looks goofy. Cannot unsee.
>>53629535Years ago, I remember seeing people being completely blown away by the realisation that Terra was actually Earth all along!
>>53617449Oh shit, It's like that moment you realize they named a warboss after Margret Thatcher.
It's literally called the skull rune of khorne.
>>53619442Do they talk smack about the loyalists before jobbing every time they fight?
>>53631040Wait whatgib source.
>>53619475I think it may just be khorne because of his war like tendencies. However, nurgle's symbol kind of looks like a gas mask in a way.
>>53632738Ghazghull Mag Uruk Thrakka??????? MargAret Thatcher
>>53633106>>53633099NO FUCKING WAY
>>53633106>>53633099Wew thanks guys, thats probably the most british GW can get.
>>53617536Dude I've been playing 40k for 15 years and I thought the same till yesterday, Time to make my primaris marine chapter the World bearers.
>>53633025It's a fly, you mongoloid.
>>53633339The Chapter Master has to be called Atlas.
>>53633106>>53633160The creators say that it was randomly generated since they needed a stupidly long name in orkish
>>53617536I am worse.For some time I read them as Word Beavers.
>>53633371 I'm thinking of a colour scheme pretty close to the sons of horus.Chapter symbol I made, in a second if I was a better painter or artist I would do human hands.
>>53633106>>53633099>>53632738>>53631040This is amazing you've made my weekend anons
>>53633371Seems too on-the-nose for me. I mean, this is 40k, but at the very least we can try and do it one better. Most successor Chapters draw from at least one or two traditions plus some random influences to make their aesthetic. Of course, this is /tg/ and our Chapter names are so on-the-nose because we take after the Space Wolves apparently.As for colorscheme, you could to white marble, giving them marbled patterns rather than a flat color, giving them an aesthetic of unpainted Greek statues. It would also harken back to the World Eater's pre-Heresy white colorscheme.
>>53633415Yes. I imagine that they said that.It just happened to end up sounding like Margaret Thatcher. In the 80s.
>>53634226I like where this is going. How about marble colored power shortswords and spears as weapons? Also some red, yellow and blue trimming on some parts of the armor since temples and statues were painted with mainly those colors.
>>53634443Bronze colored*, fUCK.Also how about we steal details and iconography from Achilles' Hephaestus-made armor from the Iliad? We could even make a nod to the myth by saying it's hinted to be of salamander origin or some shit like that.
>>53634478>"of salamander origin"So it's a Blood Ravens successor chapter?
>>53634443Red, Yellow, and Blue can make for a childish colorscheme if used to much. You could instead do what they already do, and paint details that color; mostly shoulder trim and kneepads which denote rank and company.As for weapons, we could incorporate a bronze theme into it as well, or wrought iron, but making everything marble is way too much. Maybe even gold for characters. Still, the aesthetic of antiquities and primitive metal would make for a good one, if the theme is kept consistent.>>53634478Could work with the hinted Salamander's origin, which also fits the theme of defense and protectiveness (World Bearers) after the Salamanders. I was thinking Imperial Fists because of their fortification specialty (if we go that direction at all) but Salamanders could work well. Might keep their true origins murky and have it only hinted so people can decide for themselves which rules they want to use.How about geneseed mutations? Would this cause them to be black-skinned and red-eyed? Or would they have mutated this one out of their system, or reduced its overactivity and are now just excessively tan? Perhaps their geneseed is Chimeric, and contains elements of both Imperial Fist and Salamander geneseed, or maybe they hail from the Heresy from a company or character that didn't develop such a mutation.
>>53619501>Nurgle>stylized fidget spinner
>>53619475Nurgle is a fly/gas mask/biohazard-like symbol
>>53634547I was referring to the chapter masters armor, but i went full retard and didn't write WHOSE armor i was referring to (mainly as a nod to the fact that Vulkan is the roman equivalent to Hephaestus). And actually that could turn pretty fitting given their defensive nature like you said.As per mutations, i don't know, since the Salamanders' skin mutation is a reaction to their Homeworlds enviroment i guess it would depend on the World Bearers own world.
>>53634743I guess the armor could be a present from their parent chapter?
>>53634578Guess all those tumors and mutations finally make sense.
>>53634743Could be their own world is relatively mild in climate, or has a much thicker atmosphere like the Dead Sea, which reduces their exposure to radioactivity. But, Space Marines being badasses it's probably also volcanic in a good few places and also a Deathworld filled with hostile flora and fauna.>>53634763Or a relic from an unnamed source, either gifted from another Chapter, mastercrafted by themselves, or acquired some other way for some reason. We could leave it all as mysterious as their potential Progenitors.Hell, to throw people off the scent, we could have them working very strictly with the Codex Astartes and working on a somewhat stylized but otherwise similar system of government and organization to Macragge, though probably no more than a single planet and maybe a moon or two. So we have potential Imperial Fists, Salamanders, and Ultramarines influences to disguise their true lost origins. They could worship Primarch above all as some kind of great hero (who might be described as an amalgam of Heracles, Achilles, and Hephaestus references plus some stuff of his own), or directly venerate the Emperor to circumvent the lost knowledge of their founding.
>>53626568>That's not the original Khorne symbol. The original was not a stylized skull,
>>53635500it could be shown both with and without teefs
>>53634414It's also stupid and merciless. Wew.
>>53634578God damnit that was acctually funny.
>>53617536>check>they are word bearersQuick, is it the berenstain or berenstein universe?
>>53619609In finnish, "eating words" equals oatbreaking.
>>53637377Ouch. Sounds like either penitent Astartes or Traitors. But it does sound awesome in that context.
>>53636995Not him, but still represents a futa.
>>53635563I know right? it's like people forget they can close their mouths
>>53617449berzerker #1: Frank I just noticed something.berzerker #2: These Imperials are all cowards.berzerker #1: Have you looked at our pauldrons recently?berzerker #2:Our pauldrons?berzerker #1: The symbol on our pauldrons, have you looked at them?berzerker #2: What...no... a bit.berzerker #1:They've got skulls on them.berzerker #2: Hmmm?berzerker #1: Have you noticed that our pauldrons have actual pictures of skulls on them?berzerker #2: I don't....uh.berzerker #1: Frank.... are we the baddies?
>>53638641berzerker #2: The other guys have skulls too, Ted.
what about tzeentch?
>>53617536I thought Cadians were Canadians for my first year or so in the hobby. Thought it was funny that Canada became the dominant human military force after 40,000 years.
>>53638691A moon, fire or eye; all three having roots in Divination
>>53638691An eye, and the Flame of Knowledge.
>>53638691I think it's supposed to be a comet. I always thought it looked like a stylized crescent moon.
>>53638691Maybe the fact we don't know is the idea.
>>53638789>>53638835>Crescent moonOoh, good call. Missed that one.
>>53617485Skulls tend to do that when Khorne's guys show up
>>53617660>Not "Bird Wearers"You could have giant albatross cloaks and shit
>THOUSAND SUNS REPORTING IN
>EMPEROR'S CHILDREN REPORTING IN
>>53640408Ugh as much as I love thousands sons I despise them modeled with big blocky hats
>>53638691It's the eye of a chinaman.
>>53638835>>53638899Alhamdulilah! Tzeentch akbar!
>>53641333 (trips of truth)Maybe the ball in the crescent represents the star?
>>53633106>Dis orks not for turknin'
>>53641043I feel you, if they at least toned it down a little or added a more unique design to them it would be alright, similar to how the sorcerers have it. Also rumored that Ahriman ditched the Thousand Sons because he didn't want a fucking jenga tower on his head.
>>53617536I'm having a mild existential crisis over this. I don't believe I never noticed.
>>53617449what the fuck it totally is.
>>53637377Same in english.
>>53617449Are you fucking serious? Did you never bother to look at berserker shoulder pads?
>>53619475The Mark of Nurgle is derived from the biohazard symbol.
>>53644324...no it bloody well doesn't.
>>53617660Hilariously enough World Bearers sounds way better for a bunch of berzerk conquerors and Word Eaters sounds better for a bunch of religious zealots
>>53646238No they don't.World Bearer implies a form of responsibility. Atlas types rather than berserkers.Word Eaters sound too crude, and makes less sense than Word Bearer, as Word Bearers are supposed to be bringing "the Word."
>>53617449took me years too, thought for a long time it was supposed to be a throne
>>53626568it has a dick
>>53630797It was around when i started in 3e.
>>53617449Huh. I thought it looked like an upside down dude with a bro-cut. The skull is much more obvious.
>>53638477Am I seeing a dick?
>>53647063Word eaters sounds like traitors desu.
>>53633106>horrible ugly warlike beastheh
>>53617449You aren't retarded, I just noticed that now too. To be honest I think I didn't notice because I like the idea that it's just an abstract demonic symbol rather than a weird skull picture...Actually if it's actually supposed to be a skull that kind of takes away the coolness of it and just makes it tacky for me.Thanks for ruining Khorne for me, asshole.
>>53634414>just happened toAndy Chamber's orkish words are heavily, heavily based on tolkien's stuff. Mag, Uruk and Thraka are all DIRECTLY lifted from it.It's not even death of the author, since he's been asked the question at every fucking con he goes to for the past twenty years.
>>53648791>since he's been asked the question at every fucking con he goes to for the past twenty years.And answering in any other fashion would be career suicide.

>>53645358>>53647794I needed to bump somehow.
Oh sweet summer children... So if we are gonna go with the revelations, you need to know that a lot of the names are big fucking jokes (about as subtle as Rockstar's GTA games).Dark Angels? Lion El' Johnson?Please, go lookup a poem called "The Dark Angel" and its author, Lionel Johnson.
>>53619475Nurgle's symbol is a fidget spinner

>>53617536I thought it was world until this moment. I've been playing since pre Dark Millennium 2ed
>>53617536I thought it was World until I read this post. I even thought it was weird that there were two CSM factions starting with "World".
>>53637377Meh, oats are't that tough.
>>53647063Well, I think I know how I'm gonna call my two warbands.
>>53648226yes, originally it was a stylised penis as nurgle is the chaos god that embodies fertility
>>53619475>khorne: skull>slaanesh: gender-thing>nurgle: phallus>tzeentch:this one is a bit more complex as it makes sense only in the warhammer fantasy setting
>>53619488underrated but checked
>>53617449>Army men>green - Olive Drab>Tan - Dunkelgelb
>>53619475And if we combine all four symbols, it's a three eyed skull.
>>53638641berzerker #2: No because the Imperials have more skulls, now help me get them for khorne!
>>53649648>warhammer fantasy setting>tfw the end times rendered tzeentch symbol pointless
>>53649189Yes.Which is why I find it so very hard to believe that the naming of that ork was purely accidental.
>>53649370Also The Rock was a gay bar in Nottingham.

>>53637211>I'm shit at reading so obviously I was always right and there was a reality warp
>>53617449Shit man, you just opened my eyes.
>>53619442Clearly a bunch of Tzeentch followers.
>>53631023>Terra was Earth all alonghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cy6CFTMnYa4
>>53638899Seriously? Fucked up moon is the first thing I saw in Tzeentch's symbol
>>53649370*loud asian screeching is heard in the distance*
>>53649487I interpreted it as "those guys probably bear the truth of the world after betreyal" or something. I didnt read fluff until this month.
>>53619442>Word EatersSounds like a space wolves successor chapter that eats Tzeentchian homework
>>53617536One of the two lo9st legions, led by their primarch Atlas, they were crushed under their own ambitions. >>53646238>Word EatersThey were best known for their habit of saying rather inflammatory things to very large daemons, and accordingly aren't around any more.
>>53649397I just might be.
>>53617536Damn grammer loyalists
>>53619609Thats actually pretty awesome. Guess who is making that their new Primaris Chapter.Not this guy, actually. Chaos all the way
>>53617449It does? I don't see it.
>>53628204>>53664614Still don't see it very well in that one, but I just did pic related in paint and now I kinda can.
>>53661226Did i hear some one say joining chaos? UH OH SMAsH IT!
>>53617449>Being this new...Almost remember the feeling anon...
>>53638786I remember seeing someone built and entire 10,000 point army around that pun. All his troops wore read and white armour with big maple leaves on the helmets.
>>53619609May their chapter slogan can be something along the lines of never giving up, or never falling back.Like: "Let None Fall", or "We Shall Hold"This is now a chapter creation thread

The best one for me is Gellar Fields.Much like how Uri Geller is a fraud and not paranormal, Gellar Fields stop paranormal shit happening to ships while they travel through the Warp
>>53675197Man, if we compiled that stuff, it'd make an okay /tg/ chapter.
