Maybe there esoteric beliefs are related to the afterlife. Most guardsmen believe they join the Emperor in some eternal battle, maybe they believe that but to them it's more one big death race. The better, faster, cooler, and more heroic the death the closer you get to be to the Emperor and the better your vehicle.
The Journal of Commissar AlexanderThis is not real. I was wounded in a battle and I'm in some strange fever dream. This is the only thing I can think of as this just cannot be real. I was pulled off a perfectly normal regiment from some drug fueled Hiveworld, god-emperor those were the days, at least that held some sense of normalcy. My reassignment orders told me to report to one of the worlds where we train recruits. Fine, nothing wrong with that. What I found when I arrived there was the problem. A bunch of Abhumans, and insane ones. Now I've served with Abhumans before mostly they think themselves exempt from service because the way we treat them. I was thinking I might need to stop by a Agri-world and pick up a cattle prod. But boy was I wrong. I only got to spend a day with them on the planet but I could already tell they were insane.They wouldn't stop telling me how they couldn't wait to fight, and participate in some great "Death Rally" at the side of the Emperor against Chaos. That evening as we went for a run I was nearly crushed in what was more akin to a stampede! It started out normal but kept getting worse as they all tried to one up each other. One was even thrown into a tree when one of the Minotaurs shoulder checked him! I admit I was actually worried, mainly that this would look bad for me, and the fact he splintered the tree he flew into. But he just took my hand, brush himself off, and laughed about it.Then we received word we were going to fight an Ork WAAGGHH. Now is when most men wet themselves, but they just cheered like it was a damn party! When we left for one of the invaded worlds an entire fleet of vehicles went with us! The next morning we joined two other regiments from their world (more Beastmen of course) that's when I learned I wasn't their to make them fight. I was there to keep them held back. My entire squad got into their vehicles and took off in a mad race through the ruins of the city.[1/2]
>>63543907>"By the Emperor, why are those bloody xenos supporting the Titan?">"Sergeant, they aren't here to support the Titan. The Titan is here to support them."
>>63543907I was holding on for dear life on the back of a bike. Though the Abhumans didn't seem to care as they rode on top, sides, and yes even underbellies of them. I prayed to the mighty God-Emperor that I might wake from this nightmare.I will never forget what happened next. We rounded the corner into some sort of plaza the Orks had established themselves in. We encircled the group and unleashed a hail of fire into them. The Orks got in their vehicles and tried to flee, to which we gave chase. Shortly after our largest vehicle an eighteen wheeled truck meant for transporting supplies broke off. One of the Minotaurs on top grabbed two melta bombs. It was at this point I realized he wore a flak jacket covered in all sorts explosives. He turned his head to the sky and bellowed with all his might. "EMPEROR WITNESS ME!" He armed the Melta bombs in his hands and jumped to the largest trukk before destroying it in one of the most intense explosions I've ever seen.I later had to try and control the bike myself as my driver at one point jumped over to an Ork trukk and hijacked it. Whatever that Minotaur did seem to set off a chain reaction of trying to one up each other.I honestly do not know if I'll survive this regiment. Emperor preserve me.[2/2]
>>63544077Checked Commissar, I'm stealing that for my DH run I start soon.
Most people fear Ork WAAAGHS!!, I think these complete madgoatmen find they're the only ones that really give a good fight. Basically Imperial Orks, they want a good scrap.
>>63544208Well Orks actually do have a madmax style line so yeah probably.
So boys what sorta interesting characters you got in the regiments. Also what's their name, we need suggestions. The Labyrinthine Riders?
>>63543907>>63544077>>63544253>"I was wounded in battle.">"I mean, it was more of my forces that wounded me.">"If you can consider blasting themselves and getting hit by part of horn hitting my head as wounding.">"And to be fair, that squadron of orcs was much more wounded by that explosion. Battering ram made of a bike loaded with tenth weight of explosives.""And by wounded I mean that particles they were made of may not exist anymore.">"Oh bloody great, they started bellowing and cheering again.">"Emperor preserve us all."
>"Shouldn't we just cull the abhuman population of the planet? They're a perversion of the human form!""There's an argument to be made, but..">"But? What? Their claimed devotion to the Emperor? If they were beloved by Him they would not be abhuman!""No no, it's more that-">[distant explosion]>[faint pained ork bellowing]>[far-off triumphant goat bleating]".. that they'll probably end up killing themselves sooner or later. And probably most of the sector's orks with them."

>>63544205Also let me know how that turns out.
>>63544382The Emperor's War Lads. Hardest partying guardsmen this side of the Ultima Segmentum
>>63544868nice I like it.Major Gornal Iron-Bits: A veteran in any Imperial regiment is rare. In the Emperor's War Lads even more so. However being a veteran in the War Lads is not as "glamorous" as in other regiments as it means they failed to find a worthy death. And Gornal is the veteran of dozens of battles. By now his body is more mechanical replacements than flesh, including an eye, all his limbs, and his heart. He serves as the Major of the 126th War Lads regiment.Some of his feats include shoving a grenade down the throat of a Carnifex with his right arm. Killing an Ork Meganob by ramming it and driving it off a cliff with it on his hood. And lastly kill the leader of a Chaos warband.
We also need to work out what their homeworld is like.

>>63545816Did the 60 other replies not tip you off that stuff had already been rolled.
I say we start making some writterfaggotry on how these goat men befriended a titan legion. Either them involving their speed preventing a major disaster for that titan legion or them doing something so ridiculous to an enemy titan said legion had to respect them.
>>63547839It'd have to be something big. The Legio Titanicus doesn't exactly strike me as the kind of people who like unaugmented humans. Let alone unaugmented feral worlders. Let alone unaugmented feral worlder abhumans! What the shit did these people do that the people with the giant walking shrines to Omnissian gunboners went "Yeah these goatboys are cool, they can ride with us!"
>>63547839I'm all on board with it! (was a little worried this thread would fall off and we'd lose our goatboys)We still need to work on their homeworld. My proposal.Grus IX: Grus was once a thriving Forge World with a thriving population. Over time though the foundries would prove too much for the young world. They sucked all resources out of the planet, it's minerals becoming weapons of the Imperium and experimental vehicles, the water wasted away as it was used to cool the massive foundries.This alone would not have been enough to seal the planet's fate. The warp storm that covered however would. Cut off from the Imperium with little supplies, it's death was a slow one as it fell to anarchy. The smartest and strongest survived forming warring tribes using the ancient vehicles of the planet to fight in something between a shoot out and a race through ancient streets, and across the dessert dunes.The warp storm would leave its other scars though. With each generation the humans gained traits of those like the ancient rams and bulls of Terra. They were quickly discovered after the warp storm ceased. It had ravaged their planet for centuries, but for the universe at large only several minutes had passed.
>>63548098I like this idea, also to address >>63548026 idea of do something big to get a titan legion friendly with them, I propose that our goatboys being critical in a key battle against an traitor titan legion. We should probably also discuss color scheme.
>>63549273Since they come from a desert/ruins world it's probably some tan color, or a type of gray.
>>63549502any specific shades of tan or gray you want
>>63549572Hazel wood tan, pebble gray.
>>63549273Idea: The Feral World WAS a Forge World. Or, as close as such a thing could be back before the Mechanicus proper. Still, the world was and remains covered in overgrown machinery. Great swathes of the planet covered in overgrown steel and ceramite architecture, where legends of "siberbeasts" that groan with metal-under-stress and lurch into hideous life when one disturbs their lair. Great legends speak both of their cruelty, and the cunning and strength of those who broke them. Their world was once a land of science and machine, and even regressed as they are culturally, mentally and genetically degenerated, they cling onto scraps of "siber", lore or mechanisms they understand on at least a surface level. Echoing a certain robed organisation of the Red Planet, almost. The great seas of fuel that lie under the planet's surface a commodity as hard-fought over by the feral-worlders as much as water or food. Exactly why they call it guzzoline is a mystery.A key feature of their mythology is the "siber-emperor", a being of immense size and power, stronger than any siberbeast yet also a man, both at once. The origin, a near-complete Titan within what passed for a planetary capital pre-Imperial contact. The overwhelming size and complex nature evoking a sense of awe in the primitives upon their initial discovery of it. The later discovery of the Princep-chamber and the inner throne claimed by their raider-king cemented it's place in their culture and mythology. Later additions to the mythos came quite naturally. The almost-complete status became grievous wounds inflicted upon it in the times past when every man was a siber-master, and it's inactive status merely is sleeping, and watching over the planet in it's slumber.
>>63549842When the Imperium finally made contact, and after a brief but potent period of distate at the discovery of their abhuman nature, the Ecclisarchy found it remarkably easy to tweak their mythos, they had accidentally or perhaps not so 'accidentally' developed a reasonable facsimile of an emperor who sacrificed himself in glorious battle who watched over them from a cybernetic throne. Though the AdMech Explorator ship sent to investigate the planet for recovery unexpectedly found it even easier to convert them to the Cult Mechanicus, so easy it was almost done purely inadvertently, the Tech-Priests choosing to correct the natives when they came with questions.In modern times, the great Titan manufactorum is ablaze with Mechanicus activity, seeking to repair and re-activate the systems deeper in the planet. Above, the native city sprawling onto the surface with primitive farms, buildings and shacks made equally of scrap and timbers, while deep below the hooded Sons of Mars toil in their arcane sciences, skitarii fighting back monsters wrought in millenia past now awoken by noosphere binary echoing throughout the dead corridors and halls. The abhuman natives remain enthusiastic to become part of something greater, yet held at mechadendrite's reach by the Priesthood. Such a holy site should not be tainted by abhumans impurity.. and also it's a very technical endeavour, not one for feral-worlders. Still, some natives make themselves useful in moving goods about, hoping that they might be the one that will be chosen to be taught the magic of the offworlder sibermasters. Many, many more of course compete for the honour in various self-imposed trials to be one of those who are taken to the skies to fight the enemies of their less-hairy cousins, even if they aren't quite aware of how much the Guard finds them distateful to arm and implement.
>>63549860There still needs to be some single big event to create an alliance, one I can't envisage, but have this idea thrown into the pot to help justify why the AdMech might feel a warm pulse where their heart used to be. They're madmen abhumans, but they're trying damnit They praise the Omnissiah and hate the Abominable Intelligences, and want to see the ancient Titan walk into battle once more! Also techno-barbarian goatmen doing Mad Max with a giant machine-god just sounds fun. Siber=Cyber if you didn't catch on.
>>63549842>>63549860>>63549874Works well with >>63548098 can be fused and possibly edited in a way to include how their cooler faster death = better afterlife came to be.
>>63549273>We should probably also discuss color scheme.Shiney and chrome: Got to look flashy to catch the Emperor's eye.
>>63549993Enemy just sees a fucking tide of chrome in the distance.
>>63543124Probably the titans soften up an enemy holding and the goatmen then strike key positions in the aftermath.>>63543163They probably get away with it because the Admech is shielding them from the eclisiarchy
unfortunatly, Bolter and Chainsword doesn't have that much in regards to Guardman colorization (along with the fact they only have regular human option) so I decided to go with the suggestion of making their armor shiny while also giving the cloth a red color to reflect their most bestial side, let me know what you think and any recommend change
>>63550173Makes sense. They can't accuse the War Lads of being heretics without also technically accusing the AdMech of being heretics too.I guess so long as they can justify it as "well they worship the second of the two approved Cults" they can accept it, just a little bit. >>63543124What if they're anti-Titan specialists? They ride alongside, jump aboard and fight their way up to the Princep/weird deamon brain or whatever and blow it up?Imperial Titans can appreciate it when their enemy suddenly starts glitching out as a War Lad severs something very important or performs a rite of percussive maintenance on something you normally shouldn't.
>>63550431Well it's more a fusion of the two as they still believe they join the Emperor in a big death race.

>>63551514Half actual Necron yeah. But there has to be a way to fluff a Guards regiment with Necron influence, even if Renegade/Chaos. Could be fun, hope we roll something that could support it one day.
>>63551395You're right. A lot of authors just default to "grrr it was us grunts wot won it" attitudes, when a lot of the time the apperance of space marines would be praised and celebrated by guards, unless it's one of the psycho chapters that kills them.There's more leniency for the 30k setting where not every human society is as deeply ingrained in Imperial lore or thinking, and the religious devotion to the emperor and his genetic experiments isn't developed.
I wasn't really talking in lore at that time. Just a more personal view point as guards are regular people, and most of the time Space Marines are brain washed killing machines of pure rage.
>>63551320They tell the Ministorum they believe in the Imperator, who is mighty, clad in metal and kills the xenos. The priests are ok with it, thinking they are just a lost imperial colony of butt ugly abhumans. Actually they just worship the Imperator Class Titan.
>>63543186>>63543152>>63542943>>63543019Change regular goatmen to a former slave caste of not!-Morlocks. Only they survived some cataclysm that killed the governing mechanicus leader caste, and since they were built for obedience, that's why they are so loyal.
>>63552080Speaking of religious devotion, it kinda annoys me how many writers have the main characters be...barely religious. Like, 40k is a massive fanatical society but the Ecclessiarchy almost never shows up (And if it does, it's almost always to contrast Those Stupid Fanatics with the main characters)
>>63542055Rolled a 60, Sir!
>>63549874Orkz found the abhuman planet before the Mechanicus and Imperium, and were looting all the tech left behind. The natives fought back bitterly, using every salvaged resource they could find to reclaim human tech. It was by the heroic efforts of these primitives the most valuable pieces of technology on the planet were preserved till the Mechanicus arrived. As a reward for their service, and because their worship of titans is greatly appreciated, the War Lads accompany the local titan legion wherever it goes, mopping up enemy forces broken by the mechanical war gods.>>63550431The abhumans learned to destroy ork gargantz by piercing through the surrounding warboys to make suicidal attacks on the massive machines with massive promethium bombs. Ramming the gargantz with vehicles also works.
>>63556726its probably safe to assume these goatmen carry around modified explosives and close quarter weapons to get through ork armor and deal with the orks inside while shouting or singing Imperial propoganda
>>63560317Guard cavalry spears are actually one use explosives so they probably carry some of those too.
>>63561446>A Hunting Lance is a one-handed, single-use melee weapon used exclusively by the Rough Rider mounted cavalry units of the Imperial Guard. This weapon is constructed of a hollow, lightweight metal shaft tipped with a spear point, which is also connected to the impact fuse of the weapon's shaped charge. This small explosive charge is constructed to direct the blast and fragmentation effect towards the target and away from the user. Once detonated, the user is left with only the shaft, which is then discarded. In close quarters combat against densely packed enemy formations, or in close confines, the Hunting Lance is very unwieldy and all Rough Riders carry at least one back-up weapon. The Hunting Lance also ignores the protective effects of most forms of armour, in a similar fashion to Power Weapons. Yeah you could just shove these on wholesale. Don't play the tabletop so I don't know what kinda bikes or fast vehicles there are but I'm sure there's something available, somehow.
>>63551320>During the battle the Imperator wakes up and moves on its own to support the Abhumans>Admech is perplexed and dumbfounded by this>Once a suitable Princeps is located and installed, they find the Tians actually feel grateful of the Abhumans and let them tag along
>>63563563>a titan machine spirit okayed the abhumansHonestly that might explain the titanicus alliance. Those guys worship titans like nobody's business.

>>63563789That said, these abhumans probably just about are in the genetic tolerance limits, it'd be hard to justify them otherwise.The Titanicus insisted on a full test from the Genetors to prove it. Sure they're within 0.5% tolerance or something infinitesimal, but they'll take it. It's legit, and they have the data to prove it. The Inquisition wanted to push it further at first, a re-test perhaps or a third party test. But the head Inquisitor on the scene was Golesh Heldane and people felt kind of weird about hating the goat headed people when their purity-affirming guy had a horse head.Okay probably not just having fun.
>>63563874I didn't know this Heldane guy existed until just now
Alright. Lets roll up the Orkz our Goat boys have been fighting.https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Ork_Klan_Creation_TablesKlan or Freeboota? (d10

Rolled 30 (1d100)>>63564542Had to be one hell of a not-ork to pull that off.
>>63564603Or a Grot.>Krumped loads o' spiky 'umies I smell wacky shenanigans involving marbles, banana peels and lubricant.Gork or Mork? (d10)
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>63564625Either that or just the grittiest little grot possible, doing crazy stupid John Woo shit with dakka.
>>63564677>You Killed ma Squig.>Prepare ta Die>Deyz both good, ya squighead! We're fairly neutral on the matters most theological.'ow many boyz we got left? (d10)
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>63564696>Moi name is Inigork Montoyah.>You killed ma Squig.>Prepare ta die.This grot just chasing down the one, single soldier who killed the grot through an entire army of humans, killing everyone in his way while screaming those three lines over and over.
>>63542055>>>/qst/go back to your containment board
>>63554232It's been a long time since I've seen any author successfully into religion, honestly. It's sort of a bummer.
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>63542055SIR I WANT TO BE A DROP SOLDIER SIR!
>>63564818>>63556080>>63550543>>63545816>>63542465Okay what the fuck is with this now? How many braindead idiots are coming in hours and even DAYS after the OP started and thinking to start rolling?You'd have to be dumb as an ogryn to think nobody's rolled in over 100 posts. Is there some Christmas influx of idiots I've never noticed before now?
>>63564805>>63554232I've noticed that too. Even in fanfics.>>63564818Stop this>>63564856I don't know where they came from
>>63564777Missed you>We'z short a bunch o' gits, but we can round up more! We can still fight!'ow big are da boyz boss? (d10)
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>63564923I'll throw in here.
>>63564964>Are boss be as big as dem 'ard humies dreads! And dem dreads be 'uge!Wr'z huge!See dem gits ova dere? Deyz off limits until I sez so. Got it?! (d100)
>>63564976Fuck these are some badass Orkz. Huge and Ded Killy. And these Abhumans must be tough to take them on and give a good scrap to them. The fact Titans help them out helps out a lot.
>>63564995Yeah I mean fuck Ded Killy Orks the size of Dreadnoughts, no wonder our goat boys have to resort to unusual measures.
>>63565010Yep. Their Dakka Boys use Hurrican Bolters as their main weapons. Our special character Boy uses severl Assault Cannons like the Heavy Arms Custom
Rolled 67 (1d100)>>63564976Since this is taking a while
>>63565091>Dem 'nid squigs ...Why? Is it because they're fun to fight?See dem gits ova dere? Krump 'em. (d100)
>>63545066I wanna hear more bout that mega nob that got splatted
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>63565107
>>63565173>One o' dem skellyboyz' Monolisp- Monothil- big black killy pyramids Damn these guys are good. Wot did ya do wit it? (d10)
>>63565171Fuck that does put in perspective now don't it. I mean if the average boy is a Dreadnought size, a meganob must be like a Contempor. Must've been going full speed with a semi into that fucker.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>63565186You forgot that was the enemy roll, but we can do that next. Necron shit fits these guys.
>>63565194Oh fucking lol they stole it.
>>63565189So the Boss is Leviathan Sized or that huge Custard Dread?>>63565194>Some gits stole it, dem sneaky bastards! WHAT?!?! WHO!?!1d100 to see who,Or it was the Goats?
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>63565234
>>63565244>Dem 'nid squigs ...
>>63565266Maybe that's why we're helping another fleet. So they can eat the parent fleet that stole our loot. Maybe the Nids we're allied with used to be our own squigs that reawakened their Tyranid genes.
>Fight necrons>Paint things black>Fucking Huge>Dead KillyGuys, we just made orcish Black Templars. They kill necrons and wear their skulls as hats and armor.
>>63565294That...makes some desgree of sense. The horrific blend of Ork and Nid. But *Not* a ravenous monsters, or are they?
>>63565234Did the goats shove a pylon in the Emperor-Titan? I'm afraid.
>>63565318Fuck that works so well. And the Goats give them a good time, more so than anyone else in the galaxy.>>63565326That'd be grounds for Blamming.
>>63565319Well Squigs are still ravenous monsters they just prefer to eat non-Orks since they kinda feel a kinship as Squigs and Orks sense the innate Orkiness in eachother.
Well if nothing else the existence of necron-tech wearing orks gives the weird cyberboners of the Mechanicus even more staying power.They love necrontech almost as much as archaeotech. They've found a DAoT forgeworld with an Emperor-class Titan and a sprinkling of necron loot on top of that.
>>63565368Makes sense. So innate Orkiness is what saved the universe from the Devouring Swarm. Heartwarming in a way>>63565378That also works.
Wait guys I've just realized this makes the last bits of >>63545066 go really well together.>>63565381Not even shitting you that's the canon of how Squigs came to be. Tyranids experimented with making a strain using Orks. Orks raid the hive ship they were on and sensed the innate Orkiness in eachother and looted the Squigs.
>>63565266Still need to do.We got lotsa boyz in our klan, but wot've we got more of dan otha klansWot did ya do wit dem
>>63565401Must have been old RT lore. Because Squigs were around during the HH and GC.>>63565318Also the Orkz fought the BT enough and painted themselves Black in "Honor" of such ded killy boys.
>>63565424Shit you're rightWe got lotsa boyz in our klan, but wot've we got more of dan otha klans? (d10)
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>63565440Curse incoming
>>63565452>Weirdboyz Not ike the BT at all. They got lots of WeirdboyzSo that s it. What should we call them?
>>63565465Is this war of The Beast 2: Electric boogaloo.Cause huge and psychic sounds like Ork Emperor.
>>63565486>The Emperork sits upon his Gold'n Chair
>>63565486Probably not yet... that comes later, but I like the idea. These Boys need to get their number up again.
Rolled 2 (1d10)Alright what'd we do with dem bad Nids.
>>63565507>It's made from lotted Imperial statues and the 'Throneroom' is filled with treasure taken from all over>>63565528>Da boyz ate (or killed) 'em
Wait so Tyranids stole the Ork's looted Pylon? What?
>>63565565Probably by accident. So the Orkz want to chase after them to get it back for the Emperork.
Have to get to bed guys. Have to work in the morning, but i'll be home by 4-5. So could someone save this or something? It was pretty fun.
can you imagine how terrifying it is to watch a bunch of dreadnought sized orks fighting against fanatical mad max abhumans with modified weapons followed by angry titans
But to be honest Bigger than normal Orks, and extra harder to kill then they would be anyway. Lead by a super huge psychic Ork. These guys are totally Space Marine Orks.The excellent opponent for our Beastmen.
>>63565625Fucking Ghazghkull at it again.
>>63565625Very true, will stay up a little more>>63565617I wonder how Imperials will see the emergence of such Orkz? They really do look like the second coming of the Beast like>>63565486
>>63565625Librarian Orkz the size of Dreadnoughts, and just as tough...
>>63565694Now I'm going to bed>WE'Z GOIN' ON A CRUZADE TO TAKE BACK. MY. MONOLITH!!!
>>63565583What if it wasn't really a Pylon or Monolith? After all, a giant black pyramid that's a storage cache looks much the same as a giant black pyramid that's a high tech energy field emitter to them. But to the Hivemind... Or maybe it's connected to the Weirdboyz I dunno
>>63564910>Even in fanfics.The fanfiction community is young and also very, very liberal so that wouldn't be a surprise. There's a pretty good reason that fanfiction is known for arbitrarily turning platonic friends gay and it ain't 'cause the authors are all Bible thumpers.>>63565694I'm beginning to see why the the Baa-aad Boys need titan support.
Someone sum up deez Orkz rolls
>>63567561Dreadnought sized orks with a large amount of weird boiz
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>63542055Sir, how are we still "flesh and blood" when our balls are titanium and our wills are steel?
>>63568103At this point I'm convinced it's just one dude doing it to bother people.
So just Ironjawz
>>63568743Pretty much on the mark, but with a 40k twist. These Orkz have taken to copying/mimicking the Black Templars and Imperium for some reason
>>63569227>TFW you realize those are two gangs trying to copy some part religious beliefs of the Empire and fighting each other.over religious war
>>63570068That's oddly appropriate for 40k setting.
I'm bumping so I can keep this alive and remember to be a writefag later.What are their psyker covens called? The Men Who Look Like Goats?Are their officers generally more "pure" human?Do some of them shave their hair to look less weird?
>>63571858It really is. Orks would particularly appreciate the "HIT YOU WITH MY FUCKING SWORD!" aspect of Black Templars, too.
>>63573784Beastmen(Gors, and Minotaurs) are an established race of Abhumans in canon. But generally they're thrown in as meat shields and the occasional guard regiment. Some of their officers, and the commissars are most likely human. They probably refer to pskyers as shamans.
>>63573915Hey Key, how's it going? So how else should these guys be fluffed? I like the whole xenos and Abhumans worshipping the emperor and such angle we have going.
>>63575803I view it a more throw darts at a board and see which ones hit, and flush out the ones that do farther.
>>63576708How do you mean?
>>63576708We just throw out ideas and see what fits. What people generally agree fits is further developed, tied in, and fluffed out some more.
>>63579650So the Orkz, how about the Ded Hard Cruzaders for a name?
>>63579935It deleted the rest of what I typed.Or that's stupid. Kind of hard to think up names for Ork groups. They aren't really my favorite faction. >The Orkz ape a lot of stuff from Marines, the BT in particular>Carry mockeries/excessively enlarged versions of the gear due to their great size>Really prefer melee, also their Weird Boyz ar quite frankly terrifying as they're actually pretty stable compared to other WBs. Possibly realted to their 'Faith' in Gork/Mork and the 'Emperork'
>Be Gor kid>Live in glorious age of rediscovery by Ad'mech>Magos gave me head-pat for showing him temple of titans>Whole clan got uniforms that taste pretty gud>Magos gave us red ones after that, taste bad>Steel men gave clan some hornless and now we follow their lead>Start clearing rubble from temple so Metal angels can awaken the great one>Night sky begins to burn>Hornless start shouting for us to pick up weapons>Bleet.blyat
>>63581003Still not sure how I feel about the >Be meposts that popped up. But nice post. Ork Boss: Hi Marshull Big Stompa
>>63569227>>63570068So goat cogboys vs Cruzader orkz?
>>63584422Mad Max Goats, riding on the tanks and hanging out with Titan.
>>63573915I figure if these guys are super-religious and tech-heavy they might lynch their psykers. After all when you barely scrape the "tolerated" status in the Imperium you REALLY don't want the probably even more mutated potential witches in your midst. Not saying it's impossible to produce psykers, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Blackships sometimes return with nothing beyond a governor's report on several mob killings.
>>63584531Hadn't thought of that. I find it incredibly likely. They likely don't ven attach Psykers to the Regiment to prevent the loss of more.
>>63585474I just realised. We're fighting Ork Black Templars but with psykers as a Guard force definitely without psykers (at least native psykers, off-planet ones might be safe).Kind of an inversion of the psyker-hatred. Wonder if any gotemen will ever be skitarii-fied. Having an Abhuman in the priesthood is probably a step too far barring any bizarre outliers, but there might be some argument to be made for the warriors of the Cult Mechanicus.
>>63585711That's a good point. I can see the elites getting that level of cybernetic. That one special character earlier is pretty cybered. Have to work so will have to phone post
>>63545516im thinking cool deserts interspersed with oasis's, they tend to shift every 10 years or so leading to mass migration events and a lot of bloodshed
>>63551499he is a space marine fag after all
