    ...If you were Captain Ret-Con for a day and had the power to retroactively configure or add something significant to the lore, what would it be? Would you advance the Tau deep into the Third Sphere...

    Witt;

    I use the powerfist example because that's your classic high-strength character killer. The Vanilla Commander in question is not going to instant death Imotehk, but he will hit him on a...

    Imotehk's pretty hardcore on the tabletop but he can't compete with your run-of-the-mill iron-halo force commander who will power fist him into the dirt until he stays there. That said, if Matt Ward...

    That's just my point. It's -not- chaos, it's just -raw-. Orks are techno-barbarians in space, but typically - and by that I mean as typically as any other force, at least - they make predictable...

    I hear you, RWS, and that's a fair enough thought; I still feel it's insufficient. Instinct -is- a kind of logic; moreso in the ork's case than anyone elses. There's no reason that it should be...

    According to the entry (infront of me now), Imotehk "rarely wins lasting victories over the rabblesome greenskins" because they are able to "abandon all logic" as easily as breathing.

  8. Imotehk the Stormlord - actually pretty dull?

    Slammed my Craftworld into the new Necrons for the first time today, and found myself reading the fluff for Imotehk.

    Disregarding his monumental demolition of the Alaitoc forces lead by Farseer...

    A fine quote, but that simply means that the Dark Eldar do not see any better way to deploy gunboats. It is entirely possible, you might say, that the voidraven is superior to the superheavy...

    I'm largely with Eldargal on this one. Notable points for and against that I have gleaned from your posts:

    The current rulebook opens with a lament about the Imperium being doomed, and they really racheted up the "doomedness" in this edition. The fluff has taken a turn from "Phyrric victory ad nihilum"...

    The simpler answer is that, like power armour, Terminator armour is not monopolized by Space Marines; it's merely used most iconically by them.

    Glad I could help. Where truth is a sword, an anvil, a holy tome; clarity is a whetstone, a pot of flux, a Strong's Exhaustive Concordance.

    A little late, but a fine limitation is that the webway is what it is. The Eldar are unable to create more webway passages, though they seem to be able, more or less, to make portals where they...

    First, I really don't think GW is interested in making the game only appealing to men. They want the most people to play it, as it generates the most money.
