Not even just, that they fly and shot big guns?
... DoW1 'nilla jump infantry amuses me, because jet packs on for just marching and off while chasing someone down to sword them is funny. This only applies to Orkz, Chaos and SM, and mostly to the non-orkz, because the stormboy model works.

Duel sidearms as a military unit type... just bothers me.

Ah - sorry, yes, they got that part right, at least. Though these days, Scourges are better off with special, rather than heavy, weapons.

Forget DoW. They didn't even have any fluff to butcher at that point in time. They've had a complete overhaul with the new codex. They still feed off pain, and have flying heavy weapons.

Actually, his entire body (save his head and left arm) are made entirely of greenstuff. The only reason I used a Kabalite arm was because I tried and failed at sculpting the whole "victoriously suck your competitors soul through a pyramid" arm pose. I feel it worked out quite well.

I've always wondered why the evil factions of 40k (Chaos, DEldar, Orks and Necrons) don't even try to team up.

Well, first of all, because the Dark Eldar hate Chaos and Necrons, and are on passable ground with the Craftworlders. They're evil, self-serving bastards, but they gain absolutely nothing by siding with the other bad guys and trying to tear down the galaxy they need for hunting in.

Orks are too anarchic to actually ally with anyone or anything for long periods of time. They're able pawns and mercenaries, but that's about it.

Necrons are too proud to accept the idea that another race is worth treating as an ally, rather than an lesser to be ruled or an obstacle to be destroyed.

Chaos is...well, Chaos. No-one really wants to side with Chaos for long.

Because the Orks, Necrons, DEldar, and Chaos all hate eachother.

One is omnicidal fungus that will turn on you the moment the fighting stops being good. They are designed to fight Necrons.

One is omnicidal robots that view the Orks as little more than a bad cold that just won't go away, and Eldar as cockroaches playing with their parents toys. Oh, also, they are anathema to Chaos.

DEldar never fight fair, and never take planets. Oh, also, they are horrified of Chaos, because their souls are very, very, very woosy.

Chaos wants to kill all of the above, and destroy reality.

Uh...Is that a question? Kabalites, Covens, and Cults are fully customizable as far as you like.

>> No.20869582

Exodites are pretty much locked to their worlds thanks to their lifestyle choices.

I'm pretty sure this is something that's only been explored in Soulstorm actually, though it does make sense.

The 6e ally chart says that Necrons cannot ally with any kind of Eldar though they are allies of convenience with Orks and Chaos Marines.

That's a bit strange considering the new more varied agendas of various dynasties and kabals. DE can ally with daemons and Chaos marines, so why not Necrons?

No, they aren't. The dolmen gates give them access to a limited area of the webway that's been sealed off from the main structure. Now, *IF* they were able to find a juntion which would lead to Commoragh, then it's possible they'd be able to breach the wards and try gaining access that way. But considering how well hidden and protected Commoragh is, that's a very big if.

Wait a second.

The Normal Eldar, who keep records and the legends of their race, can barely recall the Necrons. What makes you think the Dark Eldar would remember them?

Remember, the Eldar are (one of) the reasons that the Necrons went to sleep in the first place. The Eldar and the Necrons were SWORN enemies. Hell, the Eldar were pretty much designed solely to defeat the Necrons.

The Necrons won't forget thousands of years of warfare just because some of those knife-eared frog slaves like S&M and paint themselves dark colors.

The Dark Eldar won't forget all those horrible legends about the weak former gods and the War in Heaven.

Also something that people seem to overlook. Necrons all have souls. Robots can't make babies. There for there are no new necrons. They can make new canoptek units but there will never be new necron. The necrons maybe powerful now, but they have entered a game of attrition that they can not win.

It is stated in the codex that there are necrons older than the fall. Even though the fall took place long after the war in heaven I'm sure some of the more ancient archons still remember the ancient enemy.

And even if they don't actually remember fighting them (the only Eldar who could remember that would be Chaos Eldar), they remember being told to eat their Crystal-Waffles or else Overlord Boogymanetep would steal them away in the night.

This is true but it also never says anything about new necrons being made after the great biotransference.

That's because there aren't new necrons.

Wouldn't make sense for the C'tan to have eaten them. More likely neither Szeras nor the C'tan knew how to anchor a soul to a new body, and the spirits of the Necrontyr were just consumed by daemons.

Possibly so, assuming the teleportation matrix hasn't already been destroyed by whatever cataclysmic event is destroying the tomb in question.

Possibly. Alternatively, the process of biotransferrance may simply have killed the Necrontyr - their soul vanished into the warp, while their personality and memories are copied onto a blank Necron.

Either way, the fact that the Necrons have lost their souls is, IIRC, mentioned a couple of times in the codex.

*shrugs* they are all going to go insane eventually and become either flayers or destroyers. This is stated very clearly in the new codex and is the reason the silent king wants the necrons to get their souls back. Just wait them out till they all go nuts and clean up the mess.

First of all, changing which set of fluff you use to back up your points makes your goals utterly transparent.

Secondly, the old fluff is very clear on what happened. The Nightbringer infected the physical body of Khaine. That caused him to produce a psychic shriek, that echoed through the warp, putting the fear of death into the Eldar, locking out the regen cycle.

Also, if you're going by the old fluff, it's pretty explicit that the warp was anathema to the C'Tan.
