Being alone in a hellish jungle, fighting to make your legs work can really work you over.

You start to see things.

You start to hear things.

Eventually you actually listen. And then...

>> No.8602828

Because Chaos is cool.

>> No.8602844


>> No.8602900

It's my fault.

I abstained from corruption, so the game made HIM the traitor.

I...this is my fault. I should have prevented this...I COULD have prevented this...

God damnit this is what it's like to earn corruption IRL, isn't it?!

>> No.8602912


No, but you can always find out through other ways...

>> No.8602923

Sure did incriminate himself

>> No.8602942

>> No.8602987


Yeah, on a more serious note how did what he did (how did what he did? fuck I am out of it, fuck you DoW2) make ANY sense in context? He instructed you on how to recover a device that would allow you to determine the identity of the traitor, and worked at decoding as much as possible, revealing it was him? And also revealing the larger conspiracy? What the fuck?

>> No.8602998

I thought it was Avitus. Really, who else almost screams "BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD"?

>> No.8603017

Just as planned.. AKA, Xanatos Roulette

>> No.8603065


Then what was the plan? Lure them back to Aurelia? Wouldn't it have made more sense to keep his identity, and the other messages, hidden? If Martellus hadn't revealed the existence of that space hulk and the need to go there, the larger conspiracy involving the chapter master would have remained under wraps.

I know that all of this DOES make sense if Avitus turns out to be the traitor, but CHRIST I hope this doesn't turn out to be the canon ending.

>> No.8603073

Didn't he get shot down and die in Dow 2 campaign?

>> No.8603095


You find out he crash-landed in the jungle and save him.

Which also begs the question, how did he betray you BEFORE being rescued?

>> No.8603100


Faiz, stop this madness and come home, your husband and children miss you!

>> No.8603113

BUT! And this is a very big but.

he lived.
No Thaddeus is more likely. I mean he sacrifices his sqquadmates to summon bloodletters when he achieves max corruption.

>> No.8603119

I think he wanted to reveal galen and apollo demerian to deflect attention

>> No.8603130

He had the Array. Plus when the gods want to reach you...they'll find you.
Chaos always finds a way.

>> No.8603665


>> No.8603717

That's an ability at Max Corruption, though...Avitus just seems like the perfect candidate for a Khornate cultist.

>> No.8603879

They left us with some massive cliffhangers.

Also they said they would represent all four Chaos factions and add another Commander to each side and blah blah. Dirty liars.

Any guesses on the next race?

>> No.8603880

cyris seems like me may make for good tzez (not even going to attempt to spell it off the top of my head) material as well.
in fact, they all make good material for chaos, other then thull, but i think that was the point.

Of course, VanillaIce with his inability to speak and cold remorseless attitude makes him a perfect Champion of Nurgle.

But seriously. Martellus should've been a party member instead of that faggot Jonah, Jonah is probably the canon traitor anyway. (Notice how he rage faces when you first meet him? And he goes on board the space hulk and is all quiet like the chapter master was?)

>> No.8606466


When I first played the original DoW2 I expected Martellus and Gordian (or whatever his name is) to be playable characters that I could deploy.

Oh how sad I was to find that all they did was fancy dialogue.

>> No.8606497

Well at least we get a techpriest next game. (Techpriest Martellus dropping a mecha arm that had actual stats is pretty solid hint.)

>> No.8606509

Tarkus was my traitor. He died talking to his Bolter and referring to himself and his bolter as "we."

>> No.8606522

Whoa he did? Could you equip it on anyone?

>> No.8606537


We do? I am replaying the original right now so I can continue from where I left off and move on to CR.

Next game? As in next expansion? GOD DAMN IT RELIC

>> No.8606549

>Squadmates commit heresy
I think I might get this expansion after all

>> No.8606588


Guys, Chaos is not that bad I promise. Here let me show you ~

>> No.8606596

Avitus was my traitor, which was kind of expected, tbh, for me. I was more suprised to learn that anyone could be a traitor when I went to talk about it on the forums.

What happens if your entire squad has tons of corruption? Does Thule become the boss of that mission, with the blood ravens at his back, or do you still get a random traitor?

>> No.8606614

rolled 20 = 20

Random. I maxed out everybody's corruption with Tarkus being my first squad member to go full corrupt, but Cyrus ended up being the traitor.

>> No.8606618

Thaddeus was my traitor, well, all my squads had max corruption in the end so we were branded as heretics.

>> No.8606643

Okay, what is this all about?

>> No.8606644

Is chaos REALLY that good? I always expected /tg/ to be FOR THE EMPRAH..

>> No.8606660

Nope. But you could donate it for a purified item. (Got a sweet power sword with a 10% chance to instagib vehicles.) But if it was just gonna be a donatable item why would they stat it and add corruption?

>> No.8606667


>> No.8606690


Yeah, but you can't use it as an arm. you donate it to the librarium and it comes back as the power Sword of Kill Fucking Tanks.

Be right back, playing through the game till i get Thaddeus to be the traitor, he sucks dicks and i'd rather not have him around. i wish it wasn't martellus my first time.

>> No.8606712

My first playthrough was pure. I started a corrupt campaign, but then I heard that nothing changes with it save the ending, and was disappointed.

So I instead started learning to play Chaos online, and became really fond of cultist/vehicle armies.

>> No.8606713

Thaddeus is the only guy with morals! (Followed by Cyrus) Even though he sucks out of termie armor he RAPES if you get him a thunder hammer and shield. (Plus vehicles don't stand a chance. STUN STUN STUN STUN.)

>> No.8606744


Morals are a weakness in space marines. Tarkus is the best example of a marine: in control of his emotions and well-versed with the Codex Astartes. His hate for Eldar is controlled well, but his disdain for the alien is good. Thaddeus is too combat ineffective without Terminator Armor. I'll gladly dump his crap assault squads.

>> No.8606797


Hey fuck you man, fuck you.

Thaddeus is by far the most useful squad you can have on any mission. Get the Aegis of Fury ability that makes him immune when he uses Assault Jump / Teleport and you have yourself a team of pure rape.

Landing him right into a massive swarm of tyranids and watching everything explode into a giant supernova of gibs and cock-shaped parts is the most satisfying thing you can do in the game.

>> No.8606816

I gotta agree there. I'd just tele him in and stun as Avitus moved up to cover and then DAKKA DAKKA DAKKAed everything to death.

>> No.8606872


No, the most satisfying thing from DoW2 was doing the defend mission against Tyrranids. Give Thule the Assault cannon and the exploding bolts upgrade, then use assault cannon sweep and kill a Carnifex in 5 seconds. The most frequent thing I hear from Thaddeus is things like "We're taking heavy losses!" and "We're getting slaughtered!". On the other hand, Tarkus's most frequent phrases are "Enemy destroyed, Commander" and "Ready to move on to the next objective." Thule of course, says "Would that all tyrranids meet such an end" most often.

>> No.8606959

totally agreed.

thaddeus is way too weak without terminator armor, especially if you jump him into a group of, I don't know, more than one enemy squad.

>> No.8607011

Wow umm.. I am playing on max difficulty right now and Thaddeus never loses a single squad member. I use him in almost all of the missions and not just in the back neither, he is always up front with my Force Commander.

You guys must be doing something terribly wrong.

>> No.8607021

cool story bro

>> No.8607088

I intentionally made Thaddeus my traitor by pimping him out with Corruption just because I was going with a 100% ranged army. The first time I played it though, I was doing the opposite - 100% melee, with the FC, Tarkus with full melee powers, Thaddeus, and Cyrus with a shotgun and explosives - and Thaddeus was also the traitor there. That fucking hurt, it ripped the primary element of my plan right out of my army.

>> No.8607134


Whaaat? It's true! You just need to use the right set up to make it work.

Force Commander with the banner ability to help keep Thaddeus up if he is under fire. Battlecry just before you jump with Thaddeus makes his Assault Jump damage insane, nothing usually survives.

Merciless Strike is also very lovely, you are guaranteed to get one in if you have Aegis of Fury (you should).

>> No.8607150

So is it really worth paying full price for an expansion? I mean, you get what, 6 hours of gameplay and an extra race?

If that's it I'll wait till it goes on special on steam.

>> No.8607169


good plan

>> No.8607322


The Black Legion SAVED Martellus, when he was lost. The Blood Ravens NEVER looked for him. HE felt betrayed. so he got back at them, but he still felt a little bad about it, as shown by his willing ness to not kill blood ravens. But the Anger begins to boil deep within, when the Jugment of Carrion shows up, then its time for the REAL plot to begin

When Martellus calls for help, its a ruse to mask his idenity. Now the BRs are uncovering the seceret of their chapter. This is JUST what they want. Infighting.

and it works.

Matellus being a traitor is cannon

>> No.8607367

I know he is. But that Jonah faggot should be. Why? Because Martellus makes for an awesome character in the next expac. (Nobody likes Jonah.)

>> No.8607473

true, so I made him the heretic... THEN THE GO ALL ON JONAH WANK WHEN YOU KILL HIM!

there we go. NOW, pic related.

>> No.8608672

Because his name is Eliphas the Inheritor and when you first run into him he references fighting Thule and the Blood Ravens on Kronus.
Even though he was with the Word Bearers at the time.
