Nah im actually norwegian. And i know most places play for 1500, thats what i was used to playing while i lived in Canada. Luckily the owner of the FLGS realized that most new codice are tailored more towards 1750, and made it the general rule. Though ofc, if people want to they can play whatever the fuck they want.

Eh, hard to what it cost really. ive got a SHIT load of bits. which is what ill use to make the marines(that and a unhealthy amount of greenstuff).

So far Ive spent 50£ on FW renegades, 33£ for the chimera. 90£ on 3 new chimera tanks, and 20£ for the flagellants. hopefully my bit boxs will have eveything else that i need.

I've seen horrors... horrors that you've seen. But you have no right to call me a murderer. You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that... but you have no right to judge me. It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror... Horror has a face... and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies! I remember when I was with Special Forces... seems a thousand centuries ago. We went into a camp to inoculate some children. We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for polio, and this old man came running after us and he was crying. He couldn't see. We went back there, and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried, I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out; I didn't know what I wanted to do! And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it... I never want to forget. And then I realized... like I was shot... like I was shot with a diamond... a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought, my God... the genius of that! The genius! The will to do that! Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they were stronger than we, because they could stand that these were not monsters, these were men... trained cadres. These men who fought with their hearts, who had families, who had children, who were filled with love... but they had the strength... the strength... to do that. If I had ten divisions of those men, our troubles here would be over very quickly. You have to have men who are moral... and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling... without passion... without judgment... without judgment! Because it's judgment that defeats us.

The sound is always the same. Bolters always roar. Chainblades always howl. Astartes always cry their fury. When the VIII Legion wages war, the sound is that of lions and wolves slaying each other while vultures shriek above.

He cries words that he will one day never shout again—words that will soon become ash on his tongue. Already he cries the words without thinking about them, without feeling them.

He spoke of the darkness that haunts youth's fears. Of the horrors that only the imagination of a child may devise. He spoke of bogeymen and spider gods, of scissor-fingered hags and the writhing of snakes. He spoke of faces in the sky and wet-edged lips, like the folds of a great belly, pursing to suck the light from the world.
He spoke of adolescent terror. Of self-harm and reli­gious awakening. Of Imperial dogma crashing the soul, of familial rejection or parental perversion. Of young pain.
He spoke of the terrors of adulthood. Of knives in the dark and rape in the light. Of butchers and marauders, of aliens and mutants. He spoke of fires creeping nearer, of quicksand clogging the lungs, of nooses drawing tight. He spoke of death and torture and eyes in the night.
He spoke of the warp, and when his victim's larynx burst from the rawness of its screams he spoke of the Ruinous Ones, of the watchers in the void, of the Empyrean swarms. He spoke of prowling madness, of insanity unleashed upon a million worlds, of the Emperor's wounds and the Traitor's joy. He spoke of the Haunter's palace. Of the blood of angels. Of the tentacles in the warp. Of the steel teeth bared in the echoes of eternity.
Of horror and nightmare and terror and venom.

Fear must be a means to an end, he said. It must be used as an instrument in pursuit of a goal, whether it be obedi­ence or peace or genocide. Just as the Night Haunter had been used as his father's ugly tool, so too must the Legion use fear.
But to sow terror without cause; to horrify without goal -that way lay corruption. The fear ceased to be a means to an
end and became an end in itself: seeking dominance over others; seeking to terrify them into submission for the sim­ple fact of their obeisance. Seeking carnage and fear with spite and pleasure.
That way lay megalomania.
That way lay the seduction of power, and it was the flaw in the blood of every Night Lord. It was the flaw he had spent his life struggling to defeat, bearing in its womb mad­ness and venom, begetting the fits that had plagued his waking hours; taunting him with visions of his own end.
That way lay Chaos.

"Because the Wolves kill cleanly, and we do not. They also kill quickly, and we have never done that, either. They fight, they win, and they stalk back to their ships with their tails held high. If they were ever ordered to destroy another Legion, they would do it by hurling warrior against warrior, seeking to grind their enemies down with the admirable delusions of the 'noble savage'. If we were ever ordered to assault another Legion, we would virus bomb their recruitment worlds; slaughter their serfs and slaves; poison their gene-seed repositories and spend the next dozen decades watching them die slow, humiliating deaths. Night after night, raid after raid, we'd overwhelm stragglers from their fleets and bleach their skulls to hang from our armour, until none remained. But that isn't the quick execution the Emperor needs, is it?

The Wolves go for the throat. We go for the eyes. Then the tongue. Then the hands. Then the feet. Then we skin the crippled remains, and offer it up as an example to any still bearing witness. The wolves were warriors before they became soldiers. We were murderers first, last, and always."

No. Not really. The best bet we have on the matter is that he was a person with two personalities, one was Konrad Curze, a harsh but just Primarch who utilized fear to bring order and peace, while the other was Night Haunter which relished every time it brought fear to his enemies and would feast on a slave's heart if given the chance, for no other reason than he could do so.

And wrong again. Most Night Lords still detest Chaos, they see it, at best, as a crutch or, at worst, as a parasite and gruesome weakness which could be harmful to their goals.

A statement said by someone who is daemonically possessed, by someone who was so weak he had to resort to Chaos enhancing his physical aspect, not to mention what possible brainwashing went on as his transformation occurred. Seems legit.

The Primarch of the Eight Legion might have had divided personalities, but that could have nothing do with Chaos at all. Or are you implying that the circumstances in which he was brought to Nostramo are not important at all? Not to mention that his, how to put this, uprising is severely different from all of the Primarchs.

Know this, Blood Angel. Your final mission was a failure. Your brothers are dead. We will wear their armour in battle against your False Emperor. And know this also, champion of the IX Legion. Twice now, the sons of the Night Haunter have seen you slain. Greet the afterlife within the warp knowing you were too weak to triumph over us, even once.

Your bones will be made into trophies for our armour. We will feast upon your gene-seed. And whatever remains of this glorious walking tomb will be salvaged by our tech-priest to house a champion of our own Legion.

Die, with the taste of your Chapter’s eternal failure on your tongue.

That was a bitchy way to end the sputtering life of a champion who fought your captain in honorable combat, a champion who fought a battle which began ten thousand years ago again, Talos.

But I'm sure taking the credit for the accomplishments of your betters is something you know how to do well, Apothecary.

Do you fight, Warmaster, because you believe you can still win? After centuries of defeat, after failed Black Crusades, after infighting and war has bled your Legion dry and draped you in ignominy among the other Legions? Is it not true your men are slaved to daemons to make up for the great losses you have sustained since the death of your primarch? You leech strength from other sources, because your own Legion’s might is almost gone.

Parts of the Codex fluff can get over the top? In 40k? You don't say, what travesty is this?

>In the year 843.M34, the planet came under attack by the Night Lords after an initial period of observation. Their primary targets in this first strike were the planet's communications centers, which briefly got out a distress signal before being silenced. Despite their inhabitants being slaughtered in an orgy of violence, these centers were left completely unharmed by the Night Lords for their own nefarious purposes. With the planet's communication network seized, the Night Lords began to broadcast looping images, sounds and vid-recordings of savage butchery, blasphemous obscenities and dying screams. They next destroyed the planet's electrical grid and detonated nuclear-scale explosives in uninhabited areas of the planets. The resulting clouds of radioactive fallout blanketed the world in permanent night, causing radiation poisoning and mass panic in the population.

>The psychological trauma caused by the Night Lord's methods was tremendous. 14% of the population was estimated to have died from sheer fright, lacking any wounds but having suffered total nervous failure. Another third are thought to have taken their own lives rather than face the Night Lords once they began their "sport" of hunting down the survivors. The slaughter lasted for weeks, until every last man, woman and child was dead and their corpses profaned with the Night Lords' sigils.

>By the time the Imperial frigate Hand of Mercy responded to the initial distress signal, the Night Lords had already left. Grendel's World was completely dead, with corpses littered in streets still dark from the clouds of radioactive dust and smoke, yet not a single building had been damaged. After the initial investigation, a Scout Squad from the Mortifactors was sent to investigate and bring back data to determine a way to prevent such an attack from occurring again.

Not likely. If you're expecting ADB to write something up on him, your hopes are in vain, since he doesn't like him much. He's somehow interpreted that Zso Sahaal has said he invented jump packs, in the part where he talks about the Raptors in "Lord of the Night". And that's not what he said at all or implied. He only said that other Legions took notice of how assault units can be extremely effective and started using them more.

Such an ironic thing to say from such a fearful legion! A legion of egotistical pretenders who learned to use fear because they have never known anything else, who parade themselves with batwings on their heads, in order to incite terror and hide the fact that in the end, they are as terrified of the long dark entropy at the end of things as those they seek to frighten.

We are the sons of Sanguinius. Our Primarchs were similar, in a sense, Lord of the Night.

Both received visions of the darkness in the future. Both were fostered on worlds where mankind was pitted and broken, whether in mind or body.

Both went to their deaths willingly.

The Sons of Sanguinius know intimately what death and betrayal and the rage at the end of all things is like, Son of Curze. We tread the edges of that pit every day. That despair and rage which you cannot quite fathom is an old friend to us.

The Imperium will end one day, mankind will fall one day, we know this, for those dark masters that you vehemently claim not to follow even as they warp your very soul, and the thousand other threats that exist outside even their vast purview, are relentless and infinite. Whether it is from the machinations of the xenos, or the hunger of the Enemy... it will all end, one day.

We know all this. We understand the futility of this Imperium... and yet, we find meaning in life and beauty, in art and culture, whether it is transient or not.

You call it effeminate, I believe, as you huddle in your looted, piecemeal armor, desperately trying to find meaning and accomplishment in the terror you inspire. The terror you inspire is empty, Lord of the Night.

So go, Lord of the Night. Slink away into the shadows, pick off the occasional unguarded world, glory in the fear your posthuman self can so easily inspire in those lesser than you. Languish in the dark as your Legion slowly unravels into decadence and forgetfulness, the little value you had fading, well... into the night.
