I totally love the narrations of dow. To me the narrator is the sole hero of dow.

He really gets into his narrations and carries the mood and flavor of the army with him especially when he narrates for the Orks he gets all Orky and stuff.

A Chaos lord and apostle who has spent 10000 years in the warp fighting with and against demonic horrors, has seen most of the horrifying visages of chaos in it's purest form and has spent a big period of that time in a daemonic torture palace where he endured countless heinous tortures by the hands of sadistic daemons.

But that said chaos lord who faced such unspeakable terrors is turned into a mumbling scared child by the gaze of the necron lord.

Who knew Necron lords held such power.

>Vect is not KILLED there. He teleports out to an unknown location as the Dais explodes. Unfortunately the animation for him doing that upon his 'death' got canned at the last moment in production due to technical issues, so it's not really obvious in-game. In any case, no, he's not meant to be canonically dead--you can't wipe out the dark lord of the Black Heart that easily.

I also liked his dialogue in that he seemed like a model imperial general. Harsh and unyielding, but with the same sort of humanity and courage one would expect from the guard.

Oh, Eliphas. How I miss you so, your smooth moves were so much fun to enjoy when I tore you limb from limb.

Chaos Lord in soulstorm, whom I prefer not to be name is well rather.. pussywhipped. Considering how much he whimpers after I destroy those shrines.

And no Iron Lore, I do not like the Necron gimping at all. No sir. Also, you seemed to make every other projectile less effective too even for Tau, that people complain about being nerfed in Dark Crusade.

But Soul Storm gimped things in the worst way possible, it gave ridicilous advantage over to Tau, gimped Orks futher, totally buttfucked necrons, made guards Tau but with more zerg rushing flavour, SoB nearly unsable due to retarded faith point system and made Dark Eldar squishy as fuck, yet made Eldar strong as fuck and made dark reapers ridicilously strong.

Not to mention, camapign mode was far less fun to play with due to lack of special missions and mysteriously dissapearing bases that you lost all you went 30 minutes solid building

Dork Rapers weren't changed at all as far as I can see. And IIRC it was DC 1.2 that gave them the big buff. And Elfdar have always been strong (or at least they were in DC).

>> No.12195687

So I'm relatively new to the 40k lore and I've heard people bitching about how inaccurate the DoW story lines are. How so exactly? And even if it is, is it even considered canon?

>> No.12195724

They're all canon, the books aren't thank god since the games directly contradict them.

Its all a bit tricky, though, since the Alpha Legion were retconned and in the games they're really big in Chaos and not just fighting the Imperium as the guys that need it to die so Chaos can ultimately be defeated.

Read Legion.

>> No.12195782

It's entirely possible - almost certain even - that some Alpha Legionnaires will have strayed from their original mission and ended up embracing the powers they were fighting to destroy, especially with the defeat of Horus. That and official fluff has always contained depictions of Chaos-worshipping Alpha Legion, even post-Legion (pic related).

>> No.12195793

If nothing else, at least this ending was good.

Soulstorm's Space Marine Ending

>> No.12195806

secrecy is a big thing in the alpha legion. most likely theres an inner circle that knows wtf they do in th 41st milenium.

everyone else is just standard chaos spacemarine.
