Malekith? Yeah right.
[up][up][up] I sold mine to Valve for a free hat, I've yet to find a problem with not having a soul.

Now excuse me while I find a Schola Progenium to torch.

I still play, but I'm sure as hell not playing 6th. I stick with my modified 5th rules.

Eh, it doesn't seem that bad. We'll see how atrociously hilarious the lore gets.

Time to crack open some assault marines and tell the kroot to pack their bags.

[up]Some kind of budget HQ as well, I'm guessing? Reclusiarchs are pretty good, a bargain for what they get over a regular Chaplain.

Make sure you give the Marines squared pauldrons and those little aerials for their helmets. And if any have storm shields, use the round ones from the Crisis spruce.
Greater Good Astartes: damn cool if done right!

All business!
This is why I wish that there were either more different armies from the other power blocks or fewer SM chapters. This ally scheme was probably really hard to do sensibly when you have like ten Imperial factions and then maybe six others.

I don't know. Given the location of my DIY's fleet close to Tau territory, I don't think they'll ally with the space commies anytime soon. Heck, I think the Azure Blades have more chance of allying with the Eldar, and even then I can chalk up to "the marines were helped by a mysterious force that disrupted their current opponents".

Yeah. And if the Tau had spread to the point that its septs could be presented as distinct army lists, or if the Kroot or the Demiurge or any of their auxiliaries had their own army list, then this ally schema wouldn't be forced to make them besties with the Space Marines. (Or, if we want to be Doylist, "If GW's marketing department were not so all-fired obsessed with Space Marines that every other release had to be a Chapter...")

Out of idle curiosity, are there any character concepts you guys hope to see in a new edition? (This might be a better question for the fanfic thread, but since I'm here...)

...I can't even finish that sentence.

Also, should I feel bad for being the only person in the world who wants GW to make a book based on the more mundane Craftworld aspects? Like following a young impressionable eldar of the Swooping Bagel until he eventually treads so far down the path that he becomes an Exarch, forever devoted to making delicious bread and unable to escape his ignoble fate?

Bagel Exarch. Me gusta.

We already have a book about a Striking Scorpion, and I assume that the road to Exarch is pretty similar for all the Paths of the Warrior. Well, except for getting absorbed in a Phoenix Lord thing (Karandas in this case), but I think that's a fairly uncommon occurence...

Huh, wouldn't the pheonix (Dictionary be damned) lords get stronger each time they Resurrect?

From Path of the Warrior, not really. From what's described, the soul and personality of the Exarch is subsumed (literally — the Exarch is described as a star introduced to a whole galaxy of stars representing Karandas as a whole) in its entirety. Indeed, after absorbing the said exarch, Karandas pretty much stands up (after a lengthy flashback about his first meeting with Ahra), and then looks for the next Space Marine to kill.

I would have thought some of the knowledge was maintained. not the personality, per se, but any new tactics and understanding would be carried over.

Or is it just a matter of "the Pheonix lord is the Alpha and Omega of the aspect and there's nothing for him to learn"

I think too many people are blowing the Alliance table out of proportions, particularly everything after "Battle Brothers". Judging from how its described in the rulebook itself, most of the time it describes one-off encounters during a campaign that boil down to "I'll kill THEM first, then I'll deal with you."

Lurker that doesn´t lurk

It's june 29 now. Any word on the fluff?

Has the Emperor died at long last, or the flaws in the golden throne are just more critical than they were on 5th edition and canon will only advance a quarter of an inch more?
Suffer not the witch to live.
I want Kat's glasses!
In here, it only comes out on the 30th.

Also, I was told the leather case that came with my book was delayed. I'll get the book itself immediately, though.
Grandma, what big teeth you have! It would be a shame if anything happened to them.
