Just face it nerds, the Night Lords are better than you and whatever shitbags you think are the best - they just are. You can point to the skulls and bat wings on their armor, and cry out in nervous desperation, "LOL! DAT MEENS THERE EMO! LOL I WIN!" all you want, but deep down inside you know that that's not true.

Every single night that you lay down in your little bed, you piss and shit yourselves to sleep in anguish and torment, cowering in terror of the horrifying awesomeness that is the Night Lords, hunting you down. Hunting you down and obliterating your tender, defenseless anus with a gigantic power fist.

They are coming for you, and there is nothing that you can do to save yourself... or your poor, devastated bunghole.

Well, to be fair, Curze was a psychopathic monster.
He just had a weird sense of "right".
It's not like he purged the criminal elements from a society, he just used terror tactics to rule with an iron fist.
Once he left, all that shit started again, but worse, now the gangs used his style of being scary motherfuckers.

The VIII legion isn't doing that great, really. Without support from either Chaos or the Imperium, they basically are falling apart.

You want a legion that's doing well? Try the Word Bearers.
For an actual comparison, read that Word Bearer trilogy and compare with Soul Hunter.

>> No.18581518


Well first off, the thing about him being a "psychopathic monster" is exactly what the criminal scum and corrupt oligarchy that Curze went after would want you to think. And it cannot be denied that Nostramo prospered under his wise and reasonable patronage.

And as for the Night Lords supposedly fairing poorly, just because they don't go on huge, gawdy, obvious Black Crusades every so often doesn't mean they're going belly up. They just have a better way of doing things.

>> No.18581543


Have you read Soul Hunter?

Kurze was BATSHIT. The problem was, his Legion took his demented ramblings for truth. His prophecies, at the end, were made specifically to fuck with them.


If all sources are right, he told Sahaal "Yeah, you'd be Captain." Then he told Talos, "It's up to you." God knows what he told the other Night Lords, but he was still a troll after death.

Oh, right, another thing.
There's a difference between "stamping out crime" and "killing all criminals in a brutal fashion".
