>> No.20872734

Xeno is mostly fetish wank from what I gather, Blue is more about humor and antics with the rest of the tribe.

Xeno is only really known on /tg/ and that twitter thing, so there's no telling how many people know about Xeno.

Blue is (I think) a much more interesting character and is know on at least one other board outside of /tg/.

There's no real way of knowing the popularity of a character as obscure as the ones that are considered well known here.
I'd say Blue is held in less contempt.

>> No.20873709

wiki page:

a convenient resource that saves me a lot of typing.

>> No.20873750

A tribe of orks that specialise in looting stuff. They looted a tau girl, and she became one of their Meks named Blue.

(Blue actually started as a joke about the Tau trying out a cultural exchange programme with other races. The orks thought she was a blue grot. Since orks think blue is a lucky colour, she became a lucky charm for the tribe.)

>> No.20873782

I'll just give the quick version.
After Blue was created in a "what do" thread, people decided to make an Ork warband for her to be in.(excuse me if my terminology is wrong. I'm not too experienced with 40k). It quickly ended up taking on a life of its own. Instead of just being part of Blue's backstory, she's now just a small part of their backstory.

Carry on my Wayward Son, that piece on the "loyalist" Thousand Son with the OP-Titan. Ridiculous, but awesome, and surprisingly emotional. And the Reasonable Marines. I know they tone down the GRIMDARKNESS, but every once in a while it's nice to see "human" space marines that don't have a "hat" like the Salamanders of Wolves. They really try to reason with unreasonable and strange things. I want to write something about them connecting with the Tyranid Hive-Mind, but I have horrible self-confidence.

IMHO, the best part about most /tg/ OC is that it feels like it could almost be part of the setting.
Seriously, the Scraplootas, the more fleshed-out Marine Chapters, even LCB to an extent, are all designed with a lot of care and don't really feel like they're stepping on the actual setting's toes. And the ones that don't really fit are generally either very minor (a funny-voiced, slightly-attractive cultist girl isn't exactly inconceivable) or clearly comedic, as with most Marines.

>> No.20875010

For the Scraplootas at least it seems like a saturday morning cartoon or comic book, with all of its iconic characters, quirks and witticisms.

Stuff like Boris the Titan having a functioning city within him (particularly the 60 second market, which is very Pratchett-esque) is just genius, and opens avenues for so many stories.

I agree with you about /tg/'s OC. It's testament to the fact that a crowd can indeed come up with brilliant, clever ideas, provided the crowd are brilliant and clever to begin with. The good ideas people come up with are supported and carried further, the bad ideas laid by the wayside, and so on.

But then I've been a Scraplootas fan since the outset. So perhaps I'm biased.

>> No.20875045

Agreed, Diary of a Wayward Son was awesome. I wish World's Slowest Writefag kept at it (I bet he'd have 2 new chapters by now).

>> No.20875330

Well, to be honest, Scraplootas' particular evolution is rare. It started as the usual '/tg/ derails a troll/shitty thread' maneuver, but then the concept of Blue stuck. And then people start adding stuff to it like some kind of mad Katamari of bits and pieces of fluff. The stupid/unpopular bits get shorn off by neglect, and the interesting bits gets fostered by attention. Then /tg/ looks at it, sees some missing parts, adds to complete it... and Scraplootas are made.

It's like that single idea of Blue was an Ork, and it attracted enough Orks to start making a waaagh.

>> No.20875351

Deffwotch. The little copycats like the little lootas pale in comparison to those jagged, rusty pretend-champions of The Emperor of Mankind.
Pretty sure half of them had as much dakka on them as the OP's picture anyways.

>> No.20875355

Could it also be because the Orks have very little OC made for them?

>> No.20875363

Out of interest, what is the "60 second market"?

>> No.20875408

something like that.
Orks overall are well loved on /tg/, and around most of the 40k community at large.

Despite having minute amounts of fluff compared to the Astartes, Orks can really grow on you. Those who like stupid gits love'em, those who like the whole "junker" style adore them, swarm-style players like to field them, and the units as a whole have a lot of personality to them, which is jolly good for the imaginative or custom-minis guys. They're actually a very tricky, better-than-they-seem army if used right, and no one's happier in the setting than the race that outright embodies "only war".

>> No.20875450

>mostly fetish wank
no, she's mostly either moéblob waifu wank, just like Blue, or, for the very first followers, generic horror-adventure character. Then, on top of that, there's the fact that she's a hot robot girl, just like blue is a hot alien girl.

Actually, she's been recognized on /co/ and /a/ too. As for Blue, I really don't know if anyone knows about her at all beyond /tg/.

Let's say that Xeno has been popular for a much longer time, that those who liked her at first may not like her anymore and vice-versa, and that she's hated about as much as she's loved.

Well, when they're conceived in a comedic manner, they do not, in fact step on the setting's toes; that's LCB's problem: it takes itself too seriously and come off as ridiculous.

>> No.20875485

Actually Blue has had cross board support, /co/ drew a picture of /tg/ OC characters that had Blue but not Xeno.

The inside of Boris is constantly shifting and readjusting whenever he moves. The 60 second market is a bazaar in one of the more volatile regions of Boris, with stalls constantly bustling about and changing locations to account for the movements of Boris. Think this

Interestingly, within Boris there are two seperate (religious/political) factions which are in constant disagreement and get in fights all the time. They are the Shootists (in the right arm) and the Choppists (in the left arm). They each believe their own style of fighting is the superior method, and will jump on any chance to prove it.

Out of interest, did the "Swingees" thing get revised? If I remember rightly, the only method of travelling through the arms was via a complicated set of wires, swinging from one to another, required due to the constant changes of angle Boris' arms make. The Swingees are foremen who have mastered the art of swinging around these areas and can travel around blisteringly quickly, krumping any grots who are muckin' about and not working as they should.

>> No.20877404

As a bunch of people have said before, the Scraplootas are the ork equivalent of a saturday morning cartoon. A wide variety of individual and unusual characters, but with a central theme and cohesion.

They're pretty much successful on characterisation alone. They aren't about the surrounding concept, like with Spess Mehreen chapters OC, they're about the individuals, and any meta-concept just appears naturally as a result.

Perhaps I'm overthinking it.

>> No.20877414

I get what you mean. Boris the Titan and Blue are actual characters that are inherently necessary for the scraplootas to be the scraplootas. Most oc Space Marine chapters don't rely on the characters in and of themselves. Who is a special character of note from the Nightmares/Jaguars/Rising Sons? All their characters are in the end disposable.

No, I think you got it about right. Orks will always be orks, so you can fluff them overly unique like you can with SM chapters. Sure, you can give them a general battle strategy and some basic “philosophical” tenets, but thats not what sets orks apart from each other. What sets them apart is their major players within the tribe.

Gorgutz is what makes his WAAAGH so special, not the fact that hes an Evil Sunz or a Bad Moon or any other clan. Bludflagg is who you remember, him being a Freebooter is just a part of that. As such, it was the individuals in the Scraplootas that made them unique, not the fact that they had loadsa grots and kommandos.

And orks are pretty Saturday Morning Cartoon on their own sometimes. See: Bludflagg again

>> No.20877463

I think it's the reason legitimate (read: not jokey stuff like Angry Marines) Space Marine chapters have never really taken off properly. They have an underlying idea there, but they aren't memorable enough, as concepts are never memorable in the same way a character is memorable.

If you look at most of the successful /tg/ OC it's the stuff with one or a few individuals. Commissar Fuklaw, Cultist Chan, Sir Bearington, Old Man Henderson, Crazy Hassan, even (shudder) Xeno, they're all popular and well known because they are individuals and are easily recognisable. A large scale concept doesn't have the same familiarity.

I think it's an interesting topic for discussion actually, the things that set apart successful OC from unsuccessful OC.

Oh please...

>> No.20879923

I'm not generalizing, I said "most". Just informing you that I found out it was the case.

And stop grasping at straws. You said "created", not "is". Xeno is just as much of a waifu as Elesh Norn, no more, no less.

>> No.20879982

it doesn't help that all Tau wearing a diaper pics are now associated with her somehow then.

I'm not doing any of that, I'm simply stating what I see as someone who isn't in on it.

the way I always see her presented is as a bunch of fetishes.
Even if she wasn't originally a ball of fetishes, the first impression now is that she is.
I guess that makes it all kind of sad.

>> No.20880089

Nobody has been trying to "spam hatred".

Fact is, Xeno is a one dimensional character, kept around solely because she is seen as cute. Sure, she may have had legitimate origins, but at this point her only reason for existing is for people to find her cute.

Cultist, to Xeno, to Blue.

Doesn't matter how serious the character becomes over the period of time that makes up its' existence, it's always going to end up as a shitty little animu "UGGUUUU" thing that causes irrational hatred in the majority of people who remember it.

The problem is when people try to extend it's life, it only ends up making the result worse.

No matter how "badass" and "memorable" you want your fictitious character to be, /tg/ will eventually degrade her (and it's always reserved for the female characters, as the male ones fade into non-existence without a supporting female) and turn her into fetish fuel and a sex-moppit.

Instead of trying to bring her back, just remember the threads for what they were. A little bit of fun.

>> No.20880613

A female character is more enjoyable, more interesting, and simply less incongruous as a waifu than as anything else.

Except when she's crying because her friends are dead, because her replica turned evil, because she's "slipping into the cold void of nothingness". And let's not forget about the sequel in which she got robo-raped and became schizophrenic and all cold and emotionless, or about her interactions with Weaver, full of cheap poetry and sentimentalism.

Drone was the only character who took it easy and was happy about Xeno becoming a machine.

>> No.20880873

That isnt angst. Thats a reasonable reaction to finding out robozombies ate everything you know
She got angry, but not WOE IS ME angsty. In fact, she even took the time to cure the damn thing
>cold void of nothingness
That was her getting spaced. As in, she was literally slipping into the cold void of nothingness that is space. Unless you mean her concerns of Necronization, but even those were just reasonable metaphysical concerns, not THESE WOUNDS, THEY WILL HEE-UHLL angst.
She healed a bitch. Healin bitches is the opposite of angst.
Never did get to see that one, so I cant say, but if your track record is any indication, you are blowing things way out of proportion or outright lying..

>> No.20880909

Well, yes, i'm exaggerating the importance of these events, because the ANGST was mostly in the way it was written.

But still, it was full of sad, creepy events, and most of the good things that happened were told in a ridiculously sentimental way (the visit in Weaver's mind, The Lady's suicide, Drone's rebirth) that only adds up to how much of a tear-jerker the whole quest became.

again, the only trace of humor and light mood in that quest was one or two meme references and Drone's behavior.

Well, when happiness is written as melancholic happiness, when relationships between most characters are abusive, when said characters get lobotomized in a creepy way, when main characters have terrible things happen to them all the time, and when everything is written in a flowery style, even the humor, to stress how dark and serious it all is, then yes, I can only see sparks of humor in a blurb of angst.

Shas'O even admitted that she wanted to stress how de-humanizing and horrifying Xeno's condition was as the quest went on. And when it was described in a meliorative way, she made Xeno sound like a vampire/lich megalomaniac villain.

Bag World and Infinicon. Both immensely fun settings.

There was also an Astartes chapter /tg/ made, but I can't remember what they were called.

I'm glad you think so, although I don't know that sociopathic is how I would describe it, necessarily. There's definitely some degree of emotional detachment, but I don't think there was ever really the opportunity to really fully explore the consequences of immortality.

Oh yeah, the Reasonable Marines and their parent sector were a nice shot of different in the Grim Dark. Doubly so for that author's ability to depict that they were _still_ dramatically out of place amidst the rest of the setting.

Something about LCB never sat well with me. It just felt too...I dont even know the word to describe it. Not quite full blown sappy, but still pretty damn over the top on the attempt to tug at your heartstrings. I think I dislike Bakers Daughter and Cutebolds for the same reason.

>> No.20882224

Too melodramatic? Overblown?
I can see that.
Really I like it for Bloodfag's ability to write other perspectives and canon in on the fly. Like that Imperial Artillery Primer on the use of Fire Bombing or the image of the Orks all looking up at LIIVI and Taldeer and the way their heads all turn at once is "like a flower blooming" or whatever the quote was...
And how there was no inherent "goodness" in Taldeer and LIVII. Taldeer's manipulative and caustic, LIVII's little more then a kind of elaborate zombie. They aren't Edward and Bella, or even Mickey and Mallory.
They're two sort of fucked up murderers who struggle past their racial acrimony while desperately trying no to die of exposure.
It's not often in 40K that the very environment is depicted as dangerous as the various players in action. Lip service is given, but L&T spend much of their flight from Kronus trying not to die of exposure.

Melodrama is oart of it. It just felt like the whole thing was trying too hard to make me feel. Now if you want feels, look no further than Gav and Bob. In roughly two pages that author managed to make a “love” story a thousand times more heartwrenching and touching than LCB could ever be for me. And that's not even the whole story.

I don't recall LIIVI ever "glistening" or either of them spending pages declaiming how they must deny their otherwise overpowering passion.

Of course! That I forget Gav and Bob. Mea culpa. -1 Fa/tg/uy points to me.
