Yknow it's never stated in the fluff that the scars Never take dreadnoughts but rather that they generally avoid it.

>> No.20831238

I always liked to think that White Scar dreads come in two varieties.

The first is basically a dread, driving a hugeass bike.

The second is a dread with treads instead of legs. He's basically a walking artillery platform. He may or may not be pulled by cyber yaks.

On the one hand Paul Sawyer had White Scars dreadnoughts wwwwwaaaay back in the day, and that whole "The sons of Chogoris want their warrior spirits to be free from the cold restrains of a sarcophagus" thing was written way later, probably in part because he took them out of his army. They can still arrive by drop pod and fit about as 'well' in a fast moving army as deep striking terminators do.

On the other hand I am overcome with nerd rage anyway. There's gonna be another red highway massacre over this. Filthy White Dwarf peasants don't know shit about my White Scars!

They started as jet black. Only with Codex Armageddon were they accidentally portrayed as brown skinned.

I get that they are supposed to be jet black and they were like this in old fluff but, honestly, I like them way more as just being black dudes.

They really are just cooler looking to me being black guys instead of having coal black skin. If I ever made a Salamanders army, that's how I would paint them because, honestly, the dark black skin looks really awful. Just makes them look like people decided to leave all the skin primer colored.

My Space Marines are my own chapter. Although I prefer helmets, metal helmetless models are too much of a bitch to convert. As a result I have a black Techmarine.

Would that come across as racist? i.e. "hurr the darkie is too dumb to wear a helmet". (I did it mainly to see if I could paint dark skin, and also because there are too many pasty-ass IG hordes and Space Marine Sergeants & Librarians)

Straight outta Nocturne crazy motherfucker named Vulkan
From the gang called Salamanders With Attitude
When I'm called off I got a bolter
Squeeze the trigger and heretics are hauled off
You too boy if ya fuck with me
The Arbites are gonna hafta come and get me
Off yo ass that's how I'm goin out
For the xenos motherfuckers that's showin out
Salamanders start to mumble, they wanna rumble
Mix em and flamer em alive like gumbo
Goin off on a motherheretic like that
with a Bolter that's pointed at yo ass
So give it up smooth
Ain't no tellin when I'm down for a Cleansing with holy prometheum move
Here's a Vengence rap to keep yo dancin
with a Reclamation record like Roboute Guilliman
The Gauntlet of the forge is the tool
Don't make me act the motherfuckin fool
Me you can go toe to toe, no maybe
I'm knockin HQ units out tha box, daily
yo weekly, monthly and yearly
until them dumb Heretics see clearly
that I'm down with the capital God Emperor of Mankind
Boy you can't fuck with me
So when I'm cleansing your stronghold, you better duck
Coz Tu'Shan is crazy as fuck
As I leave, believe I'm stompin
but when I come back, boy, I'm comin straight outta Nocturne.

What up my Salamanders.

>> No.20833419

Emps is probably best thought of as a Psy Rating 10 character from FFG's 40k RPGs who doesn't get Perils and can basically Push as hard as he wants.

He probably needed to use Corpus Conversion to defeat Horus (remember that the Emperor would never have been able to defeat Horus without the chink in his armor that Sang opened, and that channeling the amount of power it took to destroy Horus left Emps a charred husk).

What really made the Emperor special was that he combined peak level psy powers plus was the last vestige of the untainted warp. His psy abilities in general are not portrayed as out of line for other psykers, with the caveat that the "do subtle stuff all over the galaxy" is a mix of top of the line psy rating plus the Golden Throne.
