On hiatus while Kaiser works on Vhane Glorious

Troops section in progress!

Eagle Ordinary

Single Cadian Commissar seeks fellow Cain fan for recaf and a big bang. Season 12 apologists need not apply.

Valhallan Death Pact, also a good eastern european screamo band name.

"Anyone here have tech-use?"

"No." "Nope" "Not me."

"Shit.... hey, psyker... if you were to describe your intelligence on a scale of 1 to 100...?"

"Uhhh.... 39?"

"Good enough!"

Kick-ass fanart!

D Forrest was awesome enough to gift us with this baller drawing of Talon. It always makes my month to get art of him and his dopey face (or in this case, smashingly handsome! D draws him better than I do, and I think Talon would be flattered.)

It occurs to me we've actually got a really great collection of work from folks now, and on the eve of a site re-design, I'll need to make sure there's a section to stash it all.

You know when I saw him take a bite out of those copper cable’s I suddenly had the following image stuck in my mind:
The Lieutenant is having a small posh private dinner while discussing tactics with a Catachan Sargent. Being a NCO and a CatacHan he of course doesn’t think much of the blonde stick figure in front of him. But then turns wide eyed when he notices how the small blue blood absentmindedly bytes the top of his fork, chews and swallows without seeming to notice.

@the guy that likes webcomics: How is this man not dead yet?

June 6th, 2016, 10:09 am

I was just introduced to this web comic at Adepticon this year. I got the Imperial Guardsman's Uplifting Primer and got a custom sketch from the artist. I read all of the episodes when we got back from the con, and now I can't wait for the updates. I was inspired to start a game of Only War for my teenage son and his friends, but sadly the rules seem to be out of print. Thanks for the great story and art!

@Lhorgrim: I've seen copies of the Only War RPG available in local hobby stores, so you may want to try yous. Alternatively, Dark Heresy actually has a lot of what you would need to run a party of all guardsmen. I would add some support squad mates as NPCs, but otherwise you're good to go!

They may be in a war, and on an infiltration mission but Lt. Nathanial Brinton must consume his daily amount of Nutrients at all costs! Even if they are stored in electric wires!

June 8th, 2016, 9:01 am

@Cpt. Johannes Wyss von Krieg: The yellow ones are the tastiest.

June 6th, 2016, 6:27 pm

Sometimes you just gotta make due and hope the dice fall your way! Though, really, bringing the demoman WOULD have made the most sense...

June 6th, 2016, 7:33 pm

@artemi: At first I thought they didn't bring her because they didn't know they would need her but rereading their mission briefing they were explecitly told they would blow up a fuel depot... A xeno fuel depot. Didn't Aetta just said that the place was an imperial place and that the Tau weren't using the fuel in it?

And hey Aetta it's not very nice calling this operation a shit show. After all no one has died... yet. If it were to happen though I bet she'll be the first to go just to make Holt crankier than usual.

June 6th, 2016, 9:29 pm

@Metal C0Mmander: An imperial fuel depot that the Tau took control of in the Imperium's absence! Perhaps I could have phrased the briefing a bit better.

June 6th, 2016, 8:00 pm

Just thought of something not really related to the current page. If Talon can't see for shit then how come he can tell that the psyker is of ambiguous gender? Did someone else tell him or does he know from previous experience? Maybe he'll learn later.

June 6th, 2016, 9:25 pm

@Metal C0Mmander: One could assume he picked it up from Brinton and the rest, but in truth he probably would have made passes early on if Minwu hadn't been introduced as a psyker.

June 7th, 2016, 6:17 am

@peachpunk: I do like how these guys keep finding new ways to disapoint me. I don't mean that as a sarcasm though. It's the imperium they're supposed to be unredemably bad deep down. Still I thought he just wasn't interested on hitting on a possible guy but no turns out he's just discriminating... Actually can imperial citizen legaly be in a relation with a psyker?

June 7th, 2016, 6:51 am

@Metal C0Mmander: I'm pretty sure the idea of sleeping with a psyker would be abhorrent to most Emperor fearing Imperials. They're the worst of the worst in terms of mutants and are to be treated with extreme prejudice, and/or held at length from the end of a bolter less they explode with demons at any moment.

To 'tap that' is to risk coming back out with more dicks than when you started, possibly sentient, and screaming. (The dicks, that is, perhaps even in chorus.) And even worse, you may accidentally condemn the world to another generation of witches and psykers. (In DH e1, it's worth noting the first tier of psyker talent buys included sterilization.)

Talon may not want to get with Minwu, but he's way nicer to him than any commissar should be. He has his reasons, but they're beyond the scope of the comic. It's easier to assume he's just dumb, affable and trusting, which is also true.

This of course doesn't mean you should be any less disappointed, we don't know how they survived to this point in the game either.

June 7th, 2016, 9:55 am

@peachpunk: But if the psyker is a true devotee of the emperor should the multi-headed dick you recieve a blessing from his holiness? These are the kind of questions that must be asked... Actually no it's a pretty stupid question but it's fun to ask. Honestly didn't know about the psyker sterilization. That's kind of interesting I'll admit.

But yeah I would guess that civilians getting into any kind of long term relation with a psyker would be seen as pretty god damm suspicious.

And I don't really think Talon is being that wrong to treat Minwu politely. I guess if there's a thing it's that he does look pretty carefree for a pstker and Talon might want to reming him that but that's kind of a detail (and also kind of a dick move to do to a comrade in arm and to your fellow players maybe). I get that he's gonna have to shoot a friendly at some point but that's only for shows of cowardice or extreme incompetence and not something junior commisars can do normaly.

June 7th, 2016, 10:02 am

@Metal C0Mmander: Some more information from your Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer, which every trooper should already know by heart. http://i.imgur.com/c1fSzUc.png

June 8th, 2016, 10:41 am

@Metal C0Mmander: Here's the simple answer. For psykers, the Imperium can't live with them and can't live without them.

June 7th, 2016, 11:23 pm

@peachpunk: haha! We have the name! You'll never get it back now! Minwu is forever in the intranetz! Also, autocorrect does funny things with Minwu's name for some reason. Also, I agree, why didn't they bring crazy bomb lady? Surely dying in the Emperor's service is a good death. Don't see why they're opposed. ;)

June 6th, 2016, 8:18 pm

I get the feeling this is the last mission the psyker is going to be part off.

May The Emperor Protect Him

June 7th, 2016, 1:43 am

@LordOfWar867: Her, It... Whatever the Psyker is...

June 7th, 2016, 5:25 am

...Is Brinton eating the detcord?

June 7th, 2016, 6:53 am

@LadyPotatas: it's like fruit by the foot... With double the lead!

June 7th, 2016, 10:01 am

@peachpunk: And 0.1% of the flavor which admetidly might make it edible.

June 7th, 2016, 3:48 pm

@Metal C0Mmander: Which has a better taste then regular rations!

June 8th, 2016, 5:47 am

@Cpt. Johannes Wyss von Krieg: Yes, sadly.

Of course, you know you've got a problem when an *Ogryn* calls you on something stupid you're doing.

June 7th, 2016, 9:54 pm

@peachpunk: That's... Probably better than their battle rations, at this rate I wonder what effect it will have on his noble stomach.

June 8th, 2016, 8:25 am

@LadyPotatas: why i'm thinking it has something to do with notNomenRyne "omnissiah's blessing"?

June 8th, 2016, 10:58 am

@Sarraceno: Oh yeah! The blessing did do something to him! Especially as that seemed to be a Heretek.

I wonder if he'll start getting random bio-mechanical bits and such?

June 8th, 2016, 4:07 am

Wait, miss?
HE'S A SHE???

June 8th, 2016, 8:22 am

@Ziggy: yes, a manly she

June 11th, 2016, 1:17 am

@Sarraceno: He is a She and is also commissar Holts daughter. Talon has a brass set.

June 11th, 2016, 12:21 am

Wait, his eating wires has something to do with that strange gift that stained his chest, doesn't it.

June 11th, 2016, 5:13 am

@blahblahblah: he's stripping the ends of the wire so it can be connected to the timer.teeth make the best write strippers

June 11th, 2016, 4:32 pm

I like how Brinton didn't even seem totally aware that he was eating the cables until Blutock pointed it out.

Mmm. Wires. I'm calling it now, this has something to do with Nomen.
