  1. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 4.10- Important Social Movements.

    Matloqi

    Drugs legislation is difficult topic in Phylolaem. Culturally, all four species which make up the Covenant are strongly at odds with each other. The Bifrosti embrace the typically Imperial attitude that the vast majority of drugs are a gateway to recidivism, and thus would like to see them fully prohibited. The E'Krati, likewise, have a long tradition of disapproval of drugs unless one is of the Ethereal caste and therefore able to cope with the mental strains such chemicals

    Ahoy-hoy, ladies and gentlemen. Apparently I'm back with another one of these.

    As you may know, I am in the process of creating a Preheresy Iron Hands army using only GW components and scratchbuilding because I love Heresy-era stuff and FW prices are bonkers. So, this week's Beginner's Guide to Scratchbuilding is going to be of use to Iron hands players, as well as those of you

    The Tarw

    Dark Eldar society is, as everyone knows, built around hurting others. The Dark Eldar are, by nature, fuelled through the suffering of those around them. It is an unavoidable fact of their existence. This would seem to put them entirely at odds with the rest of Kepler’s society. How can such predicated sadists possibly function in a culture dedicated to co-operation and support?

    Easily.

    The truth is, the Dark Eldar slot in easily enough, gravitating

    So, last time, we learned how to scratchbuild a Heavy Bolter. This time, we’re going to look at a slightly more popular weapon. If you want to cheaply create some Assault Cannon Razorbacks, believe me, this is the cheapest way to do it. The total cost to me in bits was 30 pence – around 50 cents to my American cousins.

    So, to begin with, we’re not going to build a typical Assault Cannon – you can use this to do that if you like, and more power

    One Bifrosti Nation

    Imperial society is built around layer upon layer of duty, reverence and sheer, unabashed xenophobia. If there is one thing it can be agreed upon, it is that humanity does hatred better than any other species in the galaxy. By comparison to the greater portion of humanity, even the Dark Eldar fall short.

    When the Bifrosti arrived on Kepler, they were exhausted, broken across the soul by the hideous, Pyrrhic war on Albitern. Old grudges and mistrusts

    Edit: On the BoLS Facebook page (a public forum) someone commented that I shouldn't post screengrabs of people who have posted perfectly relevant comment under their own names in a public forum on another public forum because it felt wrong or something. I don't get why quoting someone who said something on public record is bad, especially when it's a good question, but I don't want to come off like someone who puts people online like some kind

    On Genestealer Cults

    "I really wish GW never made Genestealer Cults. I'm so tired of people trying to find ways for Tyranids to have allies. STOP... JUST STOP IT! "
    This is the first time I have heard anyone say this, and I've got to be honest, as a player who ran a 'Stealer cult back in 1st edition, I found it hugely disappointing to hear. This is a piece of fluff which remains absolutely awesome, though little known about apparently, and it seems that those

    The Order of The White Feather

    Bifrost is a verdant, green agri-planet, home to a number of Knightly houses, its people generally given to hard work and honourable lives. Service in the Astra Militarum is seen as one of the noblest professions to which a young Bifrosti might aspire – serving in the Emperor’s name, defending the homeland from harm… what could be finer. The young cadets shipped out to Albitern were nothing if not dedicated. From conscript to full Guard, they all knew

    The Rootless

    One of the more shameful secrets of T’au society are the Rootless, designation given to those of the Tau traditionally regarded as untouchable. Rootless, more commonly known by the pejorative term of ‘khavs’ are a mixed population, consisting of numerous social groups from all over T’au; they speak a variety of languages and incorporate an extensive multiplicity of cultures. Despite this, there are broad stereotypes of the culture that are held by the Tau – and consequently

  10. BONUS BLOG - Modelling Tools: A Guide for Newbies

    So, this isn't part of my blog proper, just a forum post which I made in the hopes of helping others. I include it here for when it is inevitably lost in amongst all the other threads. Enjoy.
