    They would play in the park, and starchild's nightmares would go away, and even though he'd always be a little creepy, things would be good.

    This is purely because Little E is about as far from the GRIMDARK of the setting as someone can be, and everything he touches turns to gold.

    My plan for him was as follows:
    -Take the torso of a plastic Empire Flagellant. Nice tattered robe + bare chest.
    -Cut off the feet and replace with Cadian boots
    -pose one arm to drag an Eviscerator, made from 2 chainswords (probably thr 2-sided chaos variant)
    -have the other arm (zombe sprue?) be sort of reaching out forward
    -build the head out of a hornless marine helmet and some strips of card to create a pseudo-pyramidhelmet
    >> Anonymous 03/12/08(Wed)15:44 No.1323501
    same fag here, just thought of some Ogryns.
    -cover the face and neck-area with GS
    -cut eye, mouth and stretch-rip holes into it, kinda like the head had suddenly grown out of the neck
    -add dangling corpses on chains and ropes

    Result: Nightmare representing the sudden outburst of civilian-butchering violence that was the Eclipsion Civil War.

    There are a LOT of bad pyramid-head fan pictures and what have you out there, and it's mostly because they don't actually reference ANY pictures or in-game shots and do it from memory.

    Do not be one of these people.

    In this picture I have compiled a list of my observations on proper Pyramid Head proportions and nuances:

    -There are five panes on the head. It's split down the back.
    -The front is flat if you're going for game Pyramid Head. The movie was an abject failure, don't patronize it.
    -The front is as long as twice the length of the wearer's torso. The back "point" ends a little past the mid shoulder.
    -There is a flat "ridge" that follows the bottom of the helmet, is not present on the back two panes.
    -The sideview angle of the top of the helmet is between 55 and 60 degrees, roughly.
    -Sometimes there is a "bump" on the left side plane. A thin tentacle attack can come out of there. It's incredibly rare for him to use this, so most people never notice it.
    -The first three fingers on his hands are fused together. This is one of my biggest pet peeves. This is a very subtle way for him to seem more monstrous and non-human.

    -Use a mix of blacks,browns and dark oranges with the red grime on his clothing. Everything is soiled and filthy in silent hill, it's not just blood.
    -The pyramid head should be a very dark red, and depending on the shot/angle, can be shiney. I have spotted a colored layer beneath the surface of the helmet move before. Scary shit.

    So, just a bunch of things to keep in mind. Since it's 40k, you obviously aren't obligated to pay attention to any of this, but it will make him look much closer to the original, and therefore more scary/intimidating in a Silent Hillish way if you do.
    >> Anonymous 03/12/08(Wed)17:38 No.1323948
    can i get a similar compilation of the 0rigins butcher? Scipius' looks are more based on that version of the pyramid.

    My other idea was just using a marine helmet thats kinda carved up and broken, like he jsut pulled it off some random bastard he mangled. There could be somm of his real head showing, but it'd be indistinguishable.
    >> Anonymous 03/12/08(Wed)17:41 No.1323961
    I have yet to actually play origins, so I'm pretty clueless as to butcher proportions. I spent about an hour taking down notes from the two dead pyramid heads after the second-to-last bossfight in SH2. If the butcher presents a similar opportunity, and seems worthy of such attention, I may do something similar.

    He seemed a little silly to me, though. It was like a helmet shoulderpad, from what I've seen so far.

    HEy. So I read part of thread 1. I couldn't quite get through it since I'm at work.
    I got to the part about the commisar shrine/cross/scarecrows and the last bit about the guardsmen being torn apart by an unseen force:

    > The ripped apart idea is awesome. I think it'd be neater if it was by unseen forces, the guy just starts being torn to shreds.

    So I got to thinking. There's sort of a disconnect between the shrine and the tearing. In my mind, I pictured a momentary flaring of the eyes just before a barely perceptible shadow leaps out of the scarecrow and darts across at the offending guard. While the guard is being torn, there would be moments were this writhing shadowy form could be made out, each one with some sort of characteristic hinting to the commisar in his/her former life. the shadow would disperse after the deed is done.

    just my 2 cents anyways.

    -ravagers and swoopers could easily be represented by the old stats for Furies and Chaos Hounds, these rules are found in the 3.5 Chaos codex and Eye of Terror codex.
    -needs more chaos spawns
    -Heavy Support should have counts-as-carnifex -style uber nightmares/fused daemons
    -should have CSM as allies
    -Damned could count as old nurglings/ripper swarms/other swarm units?

    -Fear Aura has two possible forms: the slaanesh/necron one that puts a negative modifier on enemy LD and the more WFB style "LD check or be pinned/fall back/can't assault". If they get both (Fear aura and Terror aura?), the army tactic would be combining these to scare shit off the board.
    -The Fog rule should be that the Fog is always "in reserve" and arrives on a 4+/3+/2+/automatic. When the fog arrives, all units dead up to that point take a WBB roll. Some units could have WBB as an upgrade, for say +2pts per model. The fog also activates the Fear Auras but possibly fucks up all units BS? Also units with "monster" status could possibly Deepstrike as soon as the fog lands?
    [-]With these ideas I'd see that the Eclipsion guard plays as follows:
    -Turn 1-2: like a normal guard army. You get the usual BS and enough shooting to pump damage into the enemy
    -Turn 3-4: the fog probably arrives, tipping the army from shooting into fear and CC. With the fog in place, you can deepstike your monsters in at last, and start getting those terror-checks in.
    -Turn 5-6: most units should have reached CC now. If all is according to plan, most enemies will be fleeing off the board, leaving only fearless/High LD units to bash in CC with Nightmares and the surviving guard.
    >> Anonymous 03/13/08(Thu)05:51 No.1327223
    -THE FOG
    *From turn 2, roll D6. arrives on 4+/3+/2+/auto
    *Enforces Night Fight rules
    *Reduces all Eclipsion BS by 1 but adds WS by 1
    *Monster-units can deepstrike in now
    *Fear and Terror -auras activate
    *Units with WBB or FNP upgrades activate these
    *Reduces the LD of all enemies in LoS/Within 6"/12" by 1, cumulative
    *Fearless units are immune
    *All units that can draw LoS/Are within 6"/12" must take a LD check or flee away from the terror-causer
    *Fearless units are immune
    *Purchesable upgrades for Nightmares, Guard and a few other units
    *Activate ONLY AFTER THE FOG. WBB rolls are made on the turn the fog arrives for dead units. FNP has no effect before this.

    -Multiple deep-striking heavy combat units
    -Fear and Terror auras to sap enemy leadership and cause them to flee
    -capable of tying up and overwhelming the enemy with several combat units
    -good shooting on early turns, good combat on later ones

    -Fog-rule means that the army can't take many casualties early on and that units such as heavy weapon squards can be made redundant after the fog sets in
    -High-LD and Fearless enemies will suffer much less from the fear-effect and must be defeated with traditional methods.
    -As many units enter play solely via deepstrike, they can be vulnerable to shooting and/or counter-assault on the turn they arrive

    Anyways, fluff wise, as I've written them, I wrote the Damned troops as being specifically meant to die rather than provide any sort of meaningful purpose to the battle, but that's not exactly the best fitting with a table top game. Perhaps they could be served to tie up anything dangerous before the fog hits to prevent undue losses to the more valuable troops?

    probably should cap at max -5 ld.

    the Starchild should have some kind of psycic power that can obliterate enemy LD.
    >> Anonymous 03/13/08(Thu)07:26 No.1327437

    Perhaps. Or the stackability of the aura should be on units in such a way that a build like that would require specific troop choices. I mean, if you're getting your LD drop out of troop and fast attack choices and your terror out of elites, then with an IG setup you could pull at most a -9 LD(assuming each aura drops the LD by one) and you lose all of your Inducted troop choices that way. Given that even a guardsman has an LD of 7, it seems like the army would need to be far to focused on CC without any support at all to pull that off.

    Granted, I'm assuming all sorts of things I don't actually know here.
    >> Anonymous 03/13/08(Thu)07:34 No.1327443
    My suggestion to auras
    -hounds and furies
    -Greater Nightmares

    Tanks and CSM don't cause either.
    Viable tactics:
    -LD bomb. Huge minmax to drop enemy LD to 0 and then throw terror at them. No tanks no guns all melee final destination
    -Tanks and terminators. Mass guns and armour, no LD messing.
    -deep-strike force. lots of monsters, few guard
    -Guard force, very little deepstriking, much more stable as it does not rely on the Fog dropping in soon.

    As for name, no idea. I the similar sounding names for the generals is good though.

    So, as a casual /tg/ lurker, just what the hell is the false star child? (apart from being a little boy projecting this nightmare reality). What are we talking about here, a beyond alpha unsane psyker? a significantly warp-touched child, a combination of both? or should I go read the accursed tl;dr fluff page?

    When the child was still unborn, the pregnant mother was subject to a ritual where several alpha-level psykers comited ritual suicide to bind their souls to the child. It was a recreation of the ritual where the shamans of old created The Emperor.

    The child has nigh emperor-level powers, but with the psyche and body of a little kid, he is far from becoming a galaxy-conquering force. This is why the Word Bearers want to use him.

    It was an attempt by an overly ambitious governor under the sway of a radical Illuminati splinter group to create the Emperor's successor by fusing a bunch of psyker souls together in the vessel of a child.

    I want to know what it was like before the nightmare, and how were the ending events as the Starchild was found.

    No he's not freaking emperor level. He's an alpha, he has a lot of power since he was raised to control it, but he's far from the Emperor in power.
    >> Anonymous 03/13/08(Thu)09:00 No.1327623
    well you know, pseudo-emperor. He has the powers of several psykers but lacks the will or power to use all his power in a directed way. His power is almost absolutely used up to maintain the dream.

    I admit the word "emperor-level" was poorly used there.
    >> Anonymous 03/13/08(Thu)09:01 No.1327625

    That's a pretty cool idea, and i can see the child coming out horribly fucked up, but seriously, wouldn't doing something like that (or even the child itself) cause the warp to flood into realspace during the event, or whenever the child tries to do anything? (given he's relatively young and unlearned, unlike the apex twins who have been around for millenia). Also, how does one get not one, but several alpha level psykers onto the one planet without attracting the attention of most Ordo Malleus and Hereticus Inquisitors in the system?

    I mean, I love the idea to death; its fucking creepy and cool, but these are just some universe fluff issues that would / could arise to prevent this from happening. If anyone wants to show how it would work, I'm all for seeing it.

    The psykers that were gathered for the ritual were not alpha level. They were taken by Illuminati agents posing as Black Ship Inquisitors (or actually acting as such, having infiltrated the ships a long time ago). The Warp flood was exactly what turned Eclipsion into the nightmare world that it is now, and the reason it has taken this specific form is because it is focused on and emitted through the child. The very reason the Word Bearers came to the system was to use the child to open a gateway to the Eye of Terror. The Dark Apostle (the Seeker Lord) was the one that foresaw the birth of the child and has spent many years searching for him.

    You know, I'm not sure the Word Bearer Lord really even needs a name. Why not just call him "The Seeker Lord" and leave it at that?

    Also, I had this idea for the Starchild, just throwing this out there...why not have him carried around by his father's headless body while the Starchild carries the head around?
    >> Anonymous 03/13/08(Thu)09:18 No.1327659
    Your interpretation of the Starchild is syncing up with how I'd imagine Teatime from Terry Pratchett's "Hogfather." Good job on the "creepy" aspect.

    Too much corpse dickery. The head is good as it is, no need to overdo it.


    The governor himself was just a tool, wanting to exalt his name, make Eclipsion famous in the Imperium and gain power. The real instigator of the plan was a high-ranking Hereticus Inquisitor, member of the Illuminati and a radical believer in the Starchild cult. We can go with him escaping when things go south and returning with IG and Sisters to reclaim the child, or have him getting killed by the Word Bearers when they arrive.
    >> Anonymous 03/13/08(Thu)09:24 No.1327676
    This guy >>1327583 says they were alpha-level. Confirming or denying that point would be nice. I can dig the illuminati splinter cell infiltrating and 'acquiring' alpha's for imprisonment, like >>1327639 mentions, but they're going to need serious high-level inquisitor contacts for that. But, if in "Inquisitor " (Inquisitor Draco FTW, btw) a conclave of inquisitors can create the warp-hydra, I can see this happening.

    I can also dig the warp turning Eclipsion into a daemonworld. It's pretty much a given due to the ritual, so its good to see that happened.

    I can also see the Word Bearers having one hell of a use for the child.

    But, why hasn't the child been mindraped and killed by daemons and warp-predators a hundred times over by now? The Emperor, and other extremely powerful Psykers survive either because they can hide their psychic light, or they're anathema to the evil denziens of the warp (fuck yeah Emperor); this kid, however, is essentially a blazing magnesium pyre 300 m tall surrounding by an ocean of tiny candlelights. Daemons would be constantly trying to eat their way into his mind. And since he's essentially an open conduit to the warp, he has no way of guarding against this (his immaturity as a psyker also does not help here,) so shouldn't he be dead? Killed by the perils of the warp or possessed by a legion of daemons and essentially uncontrollable in any way?

    Sorry to be a complete arse, but I'm drinking.
    >> Anonymous 03/13/08(Thu)09:28 No.1327682

    Either he is already the demons, or he is used by the Word Bearers as a conduit to summon demons into the planet of Eclipsion into the bodies of crazy or dear guardsmen (or maybe even just materialize them out of thin air if his power is that strong). They are the chapter that fields the most daemons after all, so I figure they might get the mileage out of the boy by using him to bring a shitload of horrors out of the warp and THEN let a greater daemon manifest in his mind. Of course, there is that "imaginary friend" og his, too.
    >> Anonymous 03/13/08(Thu)09:32 No.1327694
    Pre-WB: the kid lived in a null-cell. He was sealed off from the Warp.

    Nightmare: Workd Bearers abuse this huge wapr-beacon by just pouring daemons out of the warp using the kid as a gate. Infact, this created so many daemons in such a short time, they bottlenecked and fused into undivided geater daemon equivelents. Cool, but unstable as fuck.
    Also the kids temple is still a null-cell. He is protected from possession by both that, and the Word Bearers that keep pointing better targets for the daemons.

    TL;DR: Starchild is in a nullcell guarded by Word Bearer sorcerors that tell daemons to not possess him.
