Eternals are pretty much Robocop. Remade humans who've died or almost died. They have flashes of memory about who they are and what they used to be in their old life. The main one even had a woman he loved but could only vaguely remember.

Okay, so they actually have a personality clash. They are both the Superhuman and the Human, one even doubts his mission because of him remembering his past life prior to being made an Eternal. So to say they lack personality is bullshit.

Sure they have different chapters, but both Chapters and Stormhosts have their origin in Knightly Orders.

One of them is from the Plane of Death and has remained a lot more human for some reason. He doesn't really agree with Sigmar, but apparently he owed him so he joined up to help free his Home plane eventually.

They actually forget most of it during the Forging process. It's possibly they lose more as they die and are revived via death magic, but I haven't seen anything with that yet besides White Dwarf.

The Eternals character has memories of fighting alongside his lover before he was taken for the forging. Sigmar recruited the Eternals from hardy tribesmen that died in the wars against Chaos.

Okay, try and follow this. Sigmar takes people who died or are about to die, then put them through an augmentation process, and they come out on the other side as post-human beings with a mix of two personalities, one artificial and one original, they then end up sometimes having identity crises about who exactly they are and what they are fighting for.

Omni Consumer Products takes a man who dies, puts him through an augmentation process that turns him into a post-human being with a mix of two personalities, one artificial and one original. They then end up having identity crises about who exactly they are and what they are fighting for.

A statue of the Emperor is accidentally damaged during renovation work of the inner sanctum, disrupting the forgotten stasis-reliquary within. As the ancient prison crumbles to dust, the Bloodthirster Ka'jagga'nath, Lord of Bloodtide, breaks free. At his bellowed command, a tide of gore washes through the vaults, corrupting everything and everyone it touches. The basilica's guardians and priests, so recently counted amongst the Emperor's most virtuous servants, roam the nearby streets seizing hapless citizens to use as blood sacrifices upon the tainted altar. For eight days and nights the orgies of gore continue, each fresh death luring yet more Daemons to the mortal world. Hour by hour, the Bloodtide spreads further and further across Van Horne - it is estimated that the entire planet will be enveloped in a matter of days. On the morning of the ninth day, Sisters of Battle from the Order of the Ebon Chalice assault the basilica. Some Battle Sisters are corrupted on contact with the Bloodtide. Those who endure fight valiantly, but most are slaughtered by the Bloodletters atop the basilica walls. It is only when the Grey Knights' 4th Brotherhood arrives on Van Horne that the Bloodtide is abated.

The innocent blood thus spilled is then mixed with blessed oils and used to anoint the Grey Knights' armour and weapons. So shielded, the Grey Knights are able to stride through the goreflood without risk of corruption, and they smash their way into the basilica's heart. A trio of Librarians lead the attack, enunciating the cants of cleansing that repel the Bloodtide wherever they tread. In the end, Ka'jagga'nath is only defeated through the selfless sacrifice of Ordan, Champion of the 4th Brotherhood. Before Ka'jagga'nath's spirit can escaped his ruined body, the Grey Knights are able to cast the Daemon's dark presence back into the Warp, and the psychic backwash banishes the Bloodtide and the Daemons it drew forth.

first it was the strength of their faith that kept them from being corrupted, now they really were corrupted.

back on topic, I really want to try playing AoS but I have no friends and the nearest FLGS is an hour away. Furthermore, the only fantasy miniatures I have are a couple of old reaper minis. I suspect as long as the stupid special rules are ignored the game might actually be fun.

Nah, it's because he is the only one who is resistant enough. Codex says so.

>Even among his gifted brothers Crowe is unique, for his presence in the Warp is a burning
white flame that purges anything that touches it or tries to subvert him with its taint, and as a
raw recruit Crowe displayed a resistance to the Warp that would take most Grey Knights
decades to develop

>The Blade of Antwyr is as potent an artefact as the Grey Knights have ever possessed. Some
within the Chapter speculate that Antwyr is more than merely a Daemon Prince or Greater
Daemon trapped by foul sorceries, and may even be the last surviving fragment of an ancient
god. Men standing too close to the wielder are driven mad by the constant whispers and lies
of the sword as it twists their thoughts against them. Only Grey Knights are able to resist its
words, and even then only for a time before they too feel their wills being bent and buckled
under the onslaught. Remarkably, Crowe alone seems immune to the effects of the blade,
though it is known that Antwyr speaks to him too. Part of the Castellan’s duty as guardian of
the sword is to record the blade’s words, in case there might be some piece of forbidden
knowledge or clue to Antwyr’s weakness hidden therein. So far, vaults filled with tomes of
lies and curses has yielded little of apparent worth, though Crowe continues undaunted.

Theoretically there should not be any obstacle for that, since the process is supposed to be magical and doesn't have the limitations of Space Marine creation. Although Emperor perhaps could have created female Primarchs, he was shocked by the idea when Malcador suggested that to him.

Magical creation process would also make it easier to provide the female stormcasts with a more feminine "heroic build" instead of making them look like men without cocks (as is often suggested for female Marines). But then there is the biggest obstacle: GW's cost-cutting ways mean they're not going to make female Stormcast models and thus they probably won't ever be mentioned in fluff.

Well, way I see it, in smaller games (fuck what GW says, this shit can only come close to working in smaller games) where you have less units, you can definitely expect every unit to have interesting rules or unique stuff that makes them more than just 'guys standing in a line', because you don't have room for tons of mooks. Example: Warmachine, where even your standard infantry guys will often be able to Shieldwall for extra survivability or can have attachments that grant them abilities.

The difference is, in Warmachine these units will have lesser stats in general than the more 'elite' ones. They'll still have useful utility abilities, but they'll be generally less potent than elite units, and will be costed less to make them good to field.

Without the points cost, GW's only option is to make all units equal. Which is fucking retarded - and even then, it only works if you stick to the exact number of models per unit that you get in a box.

>> No.41152799

It would be ironic if Morathi ended up consuming Slaanesh and becoming a new Chaos god after she got pulled into the Warp. But yeah, it seems this Malerion guy is either Malekith as a god, or a fusion of Malekith and Tyrion (MALEkith+tyRION). much like Gorkamorka is a fusion of Gork and Mork. Strangely enough, Slaaneshi daemons and warriors appear to be still around, so why did they squat him/her/it but still keep their servants?

>>41153558
I doubt they'd make Horned Rat a new member of the Big Four. He overlaps too much with Nurgle, making one of the two feel redundant. As much as I hate to admit it, Belakor is probably the likeliest candidate, assuming Malerion doesn't take Slaanesh's place.

The squating(if there is one) seems to be part of the plot this time. So the Slaaneshis are still around because slaanesh isn't gone yet but will be replaced as part of the beginning story of AoS.

I was under the assumption that the whole reason for writing fluff about Slaanesh being captured and removed from the Big 4 was because he/she/it has too much of a sexual theme and isn't really marketable to (the parents of) 12 year olds.

Crazy as it is, if ths Malerion becomes the new Slaanesh and leads the exiles, that would be pretty close to my wish of getting the Cult of Slaanesh back. They'd probably cut down on the naked ladies but if they can keep some of the asthetic of the dark elves and slaanesh I could at least get some nice new models for my edgy little heart out of this Age of Sigmar mess.
