Funny / The Shape of the Nightmare to Come

Even in a dark story such as this one, there are still a few moments of hilarity. The fact that the whole story is filled with the bleak, harsh hopelessness of Warhammer40000 ramped Up to Eleven make them stand out all the more.

  • On the detail of how the "Webway Waaaagh" started, the narrator says the Orks assaulted a maiden world. The kicker here is where he describes the name of the planet: "Fourst-K’tikaritix-HeHet Mudastiron (or ‘pretty wurld’ to the Orks)."
