The death scene of Argel'Tal was heartwrenchingcant get the exact quote though.
>Merrick, a guardsman's LIFE is to die. My job has always been to send them to places where they CAN die. I'm not afraid to spend them, but I never waste men.
>>43539823Also here's a pic of said scene.
>>43539944"I die...In the shadow of great wings, not here, not here"
>>43538981The story of Argel Tal.
>>43540001>Erebus stepped aside. Behind him, the fortress-tower was marked with the Imperial Aquila, streaked with blood from the hellish storm. The two-headed eagle stared into the rain, its wings wide and proud. "So you do", the chaplain agreed. "Goodbye, my son."
Another tear jerker moment was the sacrifice of Brother Meros in the novel Fear to Tread.Where said line astartes sacrifices himself to save his primarch from becoming the Red Angel. A being of pure hatred and rage that would consume Sanguinius and turn him over to chaos. And to top it off he tears out his own gene seed so he could continue to fight on in his legions name.
"Medusa V is a world that burns with the heat of battle and shudders beneath a million marching feet. It is a world nearing its end, a cataclysmic Warp storm descending upon it, soon to sear it clean of life. Only you can determine through your games if victory can be salvaged from its death, for make no mistake, Medusa V is doomed." - The Fall of Medusa 5, 21.06.06 (Back when 40k was still OUR game)
>>43539044Who says this? And who is it directed at?
>>43540203There's a short story where Rafen I think gets to see him in a dream like world because he got some of his gene-seed. Pretty nice.
>>43540276Yeah Rafen is one of his gene-descendants, has to go into some kind of meditative coma to heal himself, ends up joining his ancestor in a dream world and talking for a bit while fighting spectral enemies.A coda afterwards shows Meros waking up in his own time and remembering some of the dream, implying that it wasn't just a memory in the geneseed but some kind of connection that transcended time, warrior to warrior.Sadly it was only a short story. I'd really love to see some kind of 'out of time' story explored in full novel form.
>>43540276What's the story called?
>>43540209>(Back when 40k was still OUR game)Is this bait?
>>43538981Does anyone have that scan or screencap from some rulebook talking about the "rewards" offered to particularly dutiful Chapter Serfs? You know, how if said Serfs died (or maybe even if they didn't) they would have the dubious honor of having their brains re purposed as missile guidance systems? Even in death I still die for the Emperor
Uzas had a hard life ;_;
>>43540435Oof, come on.Uncalled for.Uzas didn't deserve to die with his only "friend" calling him a traitor and a madman.That was low, even for ADB.It's like killing the autistic kid.

>>43540435I genuinely felt sorry for him.>>43540488It's not even killing the autistic kid, it's killing the bullied one when he finally tried to expose his bully.
>>43540516And then the bullied kid's parents disown him for bullying the bully.Yeah, sounds about right.
>>43540435Li liked how the guy with the heavy bolter, can't remember his name, who was not even part of 1st Claw for long, was the one to stay behind to give them some time and wound Jain Zar. It was a bro moment.

There's the short story Warmaster where Horus is talking about how isolated and hideous all his allies are to the head of ferus manus. He knows everyone backing him is a fuck up, but its too late. Sort of got me.
>>43539616That dialogue with Fulgrim during Angel Exterminatus made me extremely sad.
>>43539691I loved the lines when Lorgar talks about/with Angron and how he wants to save his brother.A great book overall.
>>43539923"Spare us your empty platitudes! It matters not who lives and dies! Blood is shed! As it has always been. There is nothing else in this forsaken, existence..."

>>43539944The scene when Cyrene died the first time and he reads her letter was more touching for me>What have they done to you
>>43538981“No!” cried Uthizzar, crushed by the gut-wrenching hurt of betrayal. “It cannot be! You… Is ittrue? Tell me it is not true. What you did… What is coming…”Magnus felt his heart harden, and cursed himself for such an unforgivable lapse of will. “It istrue, my son. All of it.”
>>43540233Iron Hands legionary Henricos talking to White Scars legionary Hibou, in the short story Grey Talon in the Meduson anthology, which is an awesome little anthology that ties together all the Shattered Legion plot lines..
>>43540836>Henricos>HibouAll I can see is a spaniard marine talking to a white scar that has a head like pic related.
>>43540921Hibou Khan was one of the Terrans who turned against Jaghatai Khan and was sent on a suicide mission against Horus Aximand. Henricos was an Iron Hands Istvaan V survivor, who successfully beats the corruption out of the Grey Talon's machine spirit after he captures it from the Sons of Horus.
>>43540538He was my fave, yeah.Mercutian, btw.
The death of Phosis T'kar in the novel "A Thousand Sons". He murders his way to the legendary warrior Constantin Valdor who with disgust calls the mutated warrior a monster and an aberration.After his inevitable death by Valdor in his last moments he sees his reflection in his killers armor and as he sheds a single tear he just utters "I know" in response to Valdor's insult.
>>43541584jesus, I had almost forgot about thatI also like it when Horus laid sorta dying, sorta not, and talking about his brothers to the rembembrancer in "False Gods", especially when he talks about Sanguinus, saying that he deserved to be warmaster more.
>>43540538Mercutian, never forget. He would have been an honourable warrior in any other legion.
>"I look at you, strong in Warp-borne mutations and diseases, and all I can see is weakness. You were so frail that when hardship bore down on you, and when this harsh reality sunk its claws in, you bargained your immortal soul away for relief from a little pain. Your physical strength cannot hide your spiritual weakness: where better men stood fast and died proudly, you sold out your Emperor and your fellow man for your worthless life.">"So come fight me, lost children. We’ve all made our choices, and now those choices have made us. I shall bring you into His light with cleansing flame and prayers, and redeem us all in death. Come one or come all, you shall not put a foot into this hallowed ground while I still draw breath.">"For I have faith, and that is enough."

>>43539965With this line, Castor proved to be less of an arrogant arse than I thought when I played the IG campaign for the first time.
>>43541512>>43541769Wish they had expanded more on him. Also his writing down on the legion's action, keeping a record of it. I hope one day some other author uses those writings.
can someone tell the story of Huron-Fal and Captain Ullis Temeter on Istvaan 3.I tried to write something up but then I remembered I cant write for shit.
>>43542506Really? He wrote? Can't remember that at all. Was it said in the short story that was written between the 2nd and 3rd book? Didn't read this one so that may be why.
>>43542601It's just something said in passing, as in "he's probably in his room writing". They also mention around that time that he has a different way of speaking because he was from high-class Nostramo background and some of the 10th had problems with that.
>>43542601>>43542919Isn't it Octavia that says something about it? It's heavily implied at some point that a bunch of them just come by her quarters to talk to someone who won't try to ram a powerfist in their eye.
>>43538981This always hits me in the feels.
>>43542981Night Lords were a tragic Legion in a way
>>43540435Cyrion did nothing wrong.
>>43543729Except he kept framing someone for shit he did. Talos did nothing wrong tough. Mercutian did nothing wrong. Octavia did nothing wrong, Septimus did nothing wrong.Why did they all have to die? WHY ADB? WHY?
>>43543774It wouldn't have been as good if they all miraculously survived
>>43543925That's true as well. Still he could have let Octavia and Septimus have their happy ending. Goddammit. I don't often root for fictional people like that but they deserved a fucking break.
>>43543957Didn't they have their happy ending though, Variel coming after them was only implied.
>>43544016It was as happy as it gets in 40k
>>43544016He turns their kid into a Night Lord, something tells me he didn't ask nicely and they didn't just send him happily along with uncle Variel. Also, if you just use logic, if Octavia reached her navigator home, that kid would never come out because little navigator family secret, and big scary Night Lord after him. Chances are he would just live out his life in service of her family or something. So Variel must have caught up with them before they reached Terra.
>>43543957>you will never get beaten by a Night Lord for fucking a navigator
>>43544116>you will never get beaten by a Night Lord for getting a navigator pregnantFIFY
>>43540711Always hated how Avitus was the canonical traitor. My favourite character in DoW2. No pointless moralising, just faith in your strength of arms and the emperor.
>>43544145>you will never be a loyal and trusted servant for traitor astartes who are just trying to survive in the cold galaxy
>>43544145>you will never get a navigator pregnant>you will never have secret sexy time while she tells you to be really careful with her bandanna>you will never flip her over and plow her from behind as a sureproof way to avoid bandanna slipswhy live
>>43544276Ave Dominus Nox
>>43544110Ah yeah, forgot about the Night Lords new prophet. Well shit.
>>43544231Dude had a severe case of PTSD after Victory Bay and all of his banter about the IG and Thaddeus was actually either him trying to convince himself that he did the right thing by slaughtering thousand of innocent guardmen or him trying to forget what he has done through battle.
>>43544231He was the best traitor, and had the best reasons for breaking. He's probably my favorite raven as well, largely because of those scenes.
>>43544110Weren't they chased by =I= at some point also?
>>43544427That is one of the visions of Talos, but she is still pregnant there and wears Septimus' jacket IIRC. Which leads us to make the conjecture that they got into trouble with the inquisition, never made it to Terra, tried running away, and at some point Variel would have scooped up the child.
>>43544467Talos' visions were never 100% accurate so he could have been seeing Variel giving chase and his mind filled in some of the blanks.
>>43543957Eh it's grim darkness. At least they got to bang.Also I wish 40k wasn't a static setting just to see what Decimus would get up to.
>>43544516True, he also messes up when Cyrion dies I think. Regardless, Variel didn't let them get to Terra most likely. It's kind of even more cruel to let them have a bit of hope that things will turn out alright and then plunge right back into the nightmare.
>>43544534I really enjoyed the meeting they have at the end where he reels of how everyone is going to die.>>43544552>Variel didn't let them get to TerraI reckon you're right about that.
>>43543925Whatever happened to Lucoryphus btw? He got stabbed to death by Jain Zar but then he reappears at the ending with Decimus? Was he revived by Nurgle magic?
>>43544534>see what Decimus would get up toHe aims for Ulthwe if I got it right?
>>43539616>Was full democracy before Big E found him>Forced to do the total opposite of what he wantedAdd the rest of the stuff that was going on with him and you get maximum bitterness
>>43543540>Wow, Nighthaunter was kind of a dick.Kind of makes sense that every time he's among his brothers. He can't avoid getting his shit slapped but I'm guessing he's ultimate of emo tards so it can't be helped. I'm starting to lose the ability to feel sorry for the poor fuck.
>>43544733>he's ultimate of emo tardsFor a reason though
>>43544884Yeah. I'd be sulky and bitchy if visions that promised nothing but Grim Darkness filled my head all the time
>>43540435"If you harvest his geneseed, I will kill you."Talos, my heart can only take so much :cAlso that scene where he "wakes up" and realizes his hands are marked red, and that he doesn't know why.
>>43545653Uzas did nothing wrong ;_;
>>43545653>>43545899ADB is an expert in giving your heart a big middle finger, ripping it out of your chest and chewing it in front of you.
>>43541806Oh hey I remember that fanfic.
>>43543774>Why did they all have to die? WHY ADB? WHY?Because ABD is a Chaos cocksucker. So he makes the bestest ever Chaos guys who dindu nuffin and all the Imperials bad. But if he can't get his way into them doing something ultra awesome and worthwhile he throws a shitfit and kills them all in the most horrible and sad ways just to further drive his point of Chaos being the best.You know it to be true
>>43548099This guy gets it.Sometimes I hate what he writes, but I always love the way he writes it.
>>43540299I wish they played with more in general too. For me, it's always reading on how different authors move the Legion of the Damned. Sometimes it's marines who still serve as they mutate and die. Others it's ghosts that refuse to leave the living to the fate of the universe. Once it was even marines from a lost dimension fighting in this one because this one did not give up. (cannot remember where the last one is from)
>>43541806>>43547951This sounds good. Care to fill me in?
>>43539923>>43540711>>43544231>"Your death will weigh on my soul, Avitus. As will your folly."
>>43548456Personally I prefer the 'Imperial Demons' approach.They're not, and never were, marines, but psychic constructs. Warp beings called into existence by the desperate beliefs of the Imperium crying out into the night for a savior.For what other forms would their imagined savior take?
>>43548547Yeah, Avitus was the only one besides Thaddius who had legitimately good reasons (from a storytelling perspective) to do what he did.It's sad to know he was the traitor, but it makes for the best story, and the crowning irony that he falls to chaos in the same way that Kyras does, despite him hating Kyras so much.Martellus always makes me mad, the default traitor if nobody else is, but literally nothing about him being the traitor makes sense since without him helping you constantly you would never have had a chance to break the encryption on the traitors signal or have found the truth behind Kyras on the space hulk.Unless you want to say it's an incredibly convoluted suicide by cop scheme and he's doing all this so you can kill him in open combat.
>>43548587Hmm, that is a very cool idea. Plus it makes sense. in 40k, if enough things believe it, it is real.
>>43540107Fuck you, Erebus. At least Kharn gives him a little something at the end.
>>43541584Wasn't Valdor kind of a dick? Wasn't he the one pushing for Leman Russ to fuck Magnus' shit up?
Angron walking with Lorgar at Desh'elika (sp) Ridge and finding the bones of his friends. "All dead. My brothers. My sisters."For whatever reason, him completely ignoring the WE accompanying him while reminiscing makes it even better. That entire book is excellently written, and that one scene in particular really rams it home that Angron does not give two fucks about 'his' Legion.
>>43548816Angron is a fag. Only Perturabo is worse.
>>43538981>"My Sword is at the emperors command, I answer to no other man, living or dead."

[...] "The people of your world named you Great One. The people of mine called me Slave. Which one of us landed on a paradise of civilization to be raised by a foster father, Roboute? Which one of us was given armies to lead after training in the halls of the Macraggian high-riders? Which one of us inherited a strong, cultured kingdom? And which one of us had to rise up against a kingdom with nothing but a horde of starving slaves? Which one of us was a child enslaved on a world of monsters, with his brain cut up by carving knives? Listen to your blue-clad wretches yelling of courage and honour, courage and honour, courage and honour. Do you even know the meaning of those words? Courage is fighting the kingdom which enslaves you, no matter that their armies outnumber yours by ten-thousand to one. You know nothing of courage. Honour is resisting a tyrant when all others suckle and grow fat on the hypocrisy he feeds them. You know nothing of honour."Don't care if it's a bit much and if it's whiny. It feel bad as fuck for old Angro and he really shoved it to Girlyman.
>>43548538I didn't remember where exactly I found it myself so it took me a bit to find it again. It's called Madhouse. Each section has a follower of a different Chaos god explain why they follow Chaos and why they do what they do. The final section is an Imperial priest who refutes all their arguments and points out how hollow their faith is.

Even his boss Lorgar comes off as more likeable.Horus peeling his face off was supposed to be a "fuck yeah" moment but I don't think Erebus even gives a damn he doesnt care about his personal appearance

>>43552237Lorgar isn't likeable, you just feel sorry for him due to his inability to exchange five sentences with any of his brothers without getting BTFO.My favourite putdown was:>Magnus shrugged, with a whisper of fine mail. ‘Father is the visionary. He needed generals at his side.’>Lorgar clenched his teeth. ‘By the Throne, I am sick to my core of hearing those words. I am not a soldier. I have no wish to be one. I am not a destroyer, Magnus. Not like the others. Why do you think I spend so long establishing compliance and creating perfect worlds? In creation, I am vindicated.

I dont think it really qualifies as a moment, but the whole short story "The Last Remembrancer"is really sad and melancholic.One of the few times Dorn was written like an actual living being that had feelings and stuff instead of a proto necron.
>>43539502Except that was Loken who said that. TO Garro. In a different book. Stop sucking at this.
>>43553010Eh, you're right when you're right it has been a while since i read those books so I got mixed up.Actually I started reading some of the fluff on the knights-errant again after posting and i noticed the mistake, was just hoping no one would notice.
>>43545304Not posting Superior Zso sahaal.
>>43551551They're too meta. I couldn't even get through the first. They're obviosly written from outside the setting, not in it. Remember that the audience has a godlike view of circumstances, and that Chaos is only ever rarely named. Even in Horus Rising they use an alternate pronunciation for Nurgle.
>>43543540God that writing is fucking terrible.

Not from any official stuff, but from an online Dark Heresy game. One of our players became an Inquisitor. Gave this speech during the last session.>"The world is dark and uncaring. I have witnessed a thousand crimes, and dealt a thousand deaths. I have seen the edge of the materium, where our understanding, as feeble as it is, falls apart so completely you can only be filled with the despair that accompanies your acknowledgement of your place in the universe. I have heard the laughs of uncaring gods, the monsters that have gnawed at our doors for millenia, and will destroy everything we fight for every waking moment with such ease that we shall be as dust in the solar winds.>But I have also learned something.>In all that failure, in all that pain and suffering, all that inevitable destruction, I saw something that silenced my fears.>I saw my race, my weak, minuscule, and unevolved race, holding those monsters back. Those titans that claim to be our undoing, those daemons that would see us made into slaves or less, and I have watched them pushed back by their accused inferiors.>I saw the guardsman selflessly lay down his life to protect his family light years away. I heard the Space Marine recite the names of his brothers as he avenged their deaths. I have felt the faith of the tech-priests who relentlessly push forward to reclaim their knowledge of the past. I have tasted the acidity of blood on the air as a thousand imperial civilians lay in trenches, their last act of defiance granting their species a warning of the oncoming hordes.>So, come to me.

This quote used to make me legitimately tear up.Just imagine watching the ruin of everything you had worked for, the golden age you had managed to drag out of the darkness, and finally having to admit to those you were supposed to protect and enlighten that you had failed.
>>43545899>"My artificer... suddenly died."When you read it the first time it's morbidly funny because, "Huh he killed his servant like a psycho."Then you learn the truth, so when you re-read the books you understand that he's genuinely confused as to what's going on most of the time. Poor guy. ;_;7

>Build a library, fill it with all human knowledge. You take it elsewhere when you need a book from it, but the book is only a simplified copy. You don't understand the real book, and you don't need to. Nobody takes the real books anywhere because why would you, when there's a whole library there?Now that library goes rogue and the maintenance machinery starts killing everyone any-fucking-where near it. Where the fuck did they all come from, you swear to god there weren't this many, and there weren't because they're using the library's information to fight their war. The government fights a battle that destroys the planet against these robots and tears apart the library to stop them using it, only to be destroyed in the process. The library is leveled, cast into flames, every book burned and every computer virus-laden.Then comes a man who worked there. He talks to the few surviving library workers, assembles their information, and starts rebuilding a city around the library and expanding it as the librarians find little scraps of paper and fragmented bits of files that stuck together just right read something. They rebuild a library from scrap on the ashes of the old. It isn't a shadow on the glory of the old, but it is all they have.Then the city turns on itself, kills its master, and the librarians turn to rage. Half of them kill the other half and destroy the remnants of the library because where they're going they won't need science. Everything burns, and the city is left to a scattered few survivors, walls open to the world, with the hungry predators circling.The Adeptus Mechanicus is the sole surviving librarian, desperately scrabbling through the ashes of paper and splinters of hard drives for anything to help him and the city he needs to survive just a second longer.
>>43556568The Mechanicus technology in 30k was about as advanced as before the Long Night, except with a few exceptions, but yeah they've had a rough journey.
>>43556455ironically, Urza may have been lapse in memories from the rage when triggered by Cyrion trying to pull shit. at least what I'm starting to believe
>>43544425Avitus' was the most emotional and overall the best, I'll agree, but I'd argue Thaddeus was a close second. Part of it was personal, how much I loved him as a character, but also it exemplified that someone can fall to Chaos not just through corruption, self-hatred and doubt, or even desire for power for just reasons, but because of naivety. Thaddeus was a fool blinded and twisted by lies, always eager to help and save no matter what it took.>I saved us all! Can you not see that?
>>43541818>Enrrico in italianNo, it's only Enrico
>>43556640Except no, it wasn't. 30K admech had more working templates than their 40k bretheren, but these technologies were already difficult to produce, and those were just STCs, aka "colonist's survival minimum". True Dark Age of Technology stuff, Iron Men - led armies which plowed the galaxy so hard they put Necrons to shame and managed to conquer so much space that even during final stages of Emperor's crusade legions still encountered human colonies established back then. Think of it: at the Imperium's highest moment of glory, they still haven't reached the borders where Iron Men couldn't help humans settle in.
I wish there was a story or quote to go with this one, but alas.
>>43556676>Thaddeus>The whiny son of a bitch who for some reason believes his miniscule being has enough value to warrant the saving of his brothers who don't even have his unquestioned loyalty by a bargain with an ancient daemon.>Not Tarkus>Whose solemn wish was to serve and protect and whose only failing was to crack and justify the means to an end, picking up a cursed bolter and power armour and thus stumbling into insanity.Tarkus a best, Thaddeus a shit. I always leave the bastard behind except on all-out close combat runs.
>>43543774Why did Argel Tal have to die? ;_;The death of characters like them is part of what makes them great characters in the first place.

I think the whole short story 'The Phoenician' is sad. I liked Gabriel Santar a lot, and that little short really tugs at my heart.
>>43558510Sure, technically they do. But what purpose do they serve, when their legs are... no, nevermind. I can't bear to even type it. Poor bastards...
Anyone here /goodfeels/?"I always hated you Xaphen"
>>43559102Pretty good throw, he got the one twat of the whole group.
>>43557870I played through all the dawn of war2's and got the techmarine as evil. Didn't know about the others. How did the events trigger? I found it weird when he shows up next game with no explanation
>>43551250And Gorrillamans reply is great as well.
>>43559476If all of your guys remained pure, they didn't go traitor and the Techmarine would become the boss. This was to encourage replaying the game and trying out different loadouts and seeing the different roads of the story according to the player's decisions.In Retribution, they made campaigns for all the factions instead of just Space Marines. From this point on, they decided to not tie in with previous games according to the player's saved campaign files and went back to their own firm canon where Avitus was the traitor. They treated their campaign as sequel to Chaos Rising as if Avitus had been the traitor, thus they didn't need to explain why Martellus the Techmarine was back - He'd never been traitor according to the officially declared storyline.
>>43559686Thanks boss. I liked the techmarine so I'm glad he survived. Avitus, was he the devastator marine? Bit surprised. I assumed it would be the librarian.
>>43559935>librarianDas racist mang
>>43559935Jonah was notably the only one who remained truly loyal even in his traitor route.>Jonah: Br-- Brothers: The betrayal is not mine. At least-- At least not completely. The messages to Eliphas and Galan -- they came from my lips, I admit. B-- But the guiding intelligence was not mine. There is something inside my mind! It has been there-- scratching, growing-- since the end of the Tyranid war. Now-- Now, it draws me to the planet below. I can no longer resist.>'Jonah': I grow impatient, Space Marines. Come, test this flesh.>Thaddeus: You are not Jonah Orion! What have you done to him? What are you?>'Jonah': Jonah is right here, infant. I can hear him screaming. >Tarkus: We will cast you back into the warp, daemon! >'Jonah': I can feel the scars on this psyche. This little human mind faced the Tyranid Hive Mind so that Gabriel might come to your aid. You cannot conceive of the pain and wounds suffered during that battle. Such a battered mind was no real challenge -- especially when deprived of its psychic toys. >Tarkus: Psychic toys? You mean the Librarian's psychic hood.>'Jonah': A bothersome device, but simple to overcome when you know the proper rites. Your dear Kyras was more than willing to bargain that secret away.>'Jonah': Mend, accursed flesh! Mend! You! What have you done? Ah -- I see. You do nothing. It is Jonah.>Tarkus: He fights you still, daemon. >'Jonah': A desperate and foolish gambit, Space Marines. The best he can do is forestall my repair of this flesh. >Avitus: Long enough for us to kill you.>'Jonah': By all means: kill this body. It will then be my pleasure to drag the stubborn soul of Jonah Orion into the depths of the Warp.>Tarkus: The Emperor protects the souls of the faithful, and Jonah Orion has proven himself true.>'Jonah': The Emperor? Your "god" is just a withered corpse on a throne - he cannot protect anyone! Kill this body and nothing can save Jonah Orion!>Tarkus: The man who has nothing can still have faith.
"The fallen shall be forever remembered as the Emperor's finest."
>>43557870I disagree - Tarkus is a great character, and his fall was good, but it also felt unrealistic. He was corrupted, but he didn't change, and he only fell because he was trying too hard to be good. It's honestly hard to tell that he's actually corrupted until the very last moment when he's screaming that his weapon has abandoned him. I feel he's the one that's most obviously not supposed to have fallen, the absolute best of them.Thaddeus was a whiny bastard, but that's part of what made his fall better. He went through roughly the same sort of corruption as Tarkus - he believed that the power of something else was necessary for his goals, and his goals were to save his friends and help his chapter survive and thrive. It feels believable that his own naivety and self-importance would draw him into the trap of Chaos, especially compared to Tarkus and his accursed bolter, and it's far more obvious that he's been corrupted when he goes back on things he's said and goes from whispering to screaming. The poor guy had the horrible fate of being useless compared to the other characters in the game too.

>>43555196This is a masterpiece. Top notch character development, a well crafted plot/story arc, and perfectly placed gut-wrenching scenes. Read it years ago, still get feels for those characters.

>>43566165Baneblade by Guy Haley is excellent. It's one of my favourite Guard novels,it has a very humane side to it, some good feels part here and there that make it a lot more real and the tank stuff is really well written.
>>43566262>>43566165His Salamander stories in Meduson are fantastic. He did so much more with them in two short stories than Kyme did in two novels.

There's some awesome quote between avitus Thaddeus and tarkus, where they are each arguing about the purpose of a space marineTarkus says its about gloryAvitus says he's wrong, that it's about bringing death to their doesThen tarkus says they're both wrong, the only purpose of a space marine is to serve the Emperor, no more, no less.

"Uzas..uzas...I've always hated you...but i'm sorry.."
This one always gets me, especially because it reveals more of Angrons character outside of his standard FUCK EVERYTHING attitude he usually has from the nails. >“What would you know of struggle, Perfect Son? When have you fought against the mutilation of your mind? When have you had to do anything more than tally compliances and polish your armour?” […] “The people of your world named you Great One. The people of mine called me Slave. Which one of us landed on a paradise of civilisation to be raised by a foster father, Roboute? Which one of us was given armies to lead after training in the halls of the Macraggian high-riders? Which one of us inherited a strong, cultured kingdom? And which one of us had to rise up against a kingdom with nothing but a horde of starving slaves? Which one of us was a child enslaved on a world of monsters, with his brain cut up by carving knives? Listen to your blue-clad wretches yelling of courage and honour, courage and honour, courage and honour. Do you even know the meaning of those words? Courage is fighting the kingdom which enslaves you, no matter that their armies outnumber yours by ten-thousand to one. You know nothing of courage. Honour is resisting a tyrant when all others suckle and grow fat on the hypocrisy he feeds them. You know nothing of honour.”- Angron, The Red Angel. Primarch of the World Eaters, XIIth Legion Astartes

>>43567068He was in the Epilog.
>Nineteenth platoon were about five hundred meters from Old Hive's north entrance when they saw the gates close. Skerral stopped in his tracks, and pulled the men up. Half his unit were dead. He ejected a cell from his lasrifle and slammed in a new one. "Come on," he said, turning back to face down the slope at the waves of assault sweeping in. "Let's see how many we can kill.">The remnants of nineteenth lasted seventeen minutes from the time the gates closed. They accounted for one hundred and eighty-nine enemy casualties. No one witnessed their heroism.This always gave me feels...
>>43575508Where's it from?
It's not canon, but the fanfic of Comissar John Fuklaw is kinda depressing

>>43576609>My legion has suffered enough.
>>43576609oh man the WE always give me the feels. They were so good they even let his damaged Primarch drill their skulls with xeno killing things and still tryed to do good until they were as batshit crazy as Angron.And also poor Angron didnt do nuffin... I always wonder what happend so bad to the lost primarchs that they had to be "left behind" and why they didnt put Angron out of his misery as soon as they found him.
>>43567233That's a fantastic piece of art....except the nose piercing.Aside from the fact that I can't stand those things and they remind me of a pimple, why would a sister be wearing meaningless, fad ornamentation like that?

>>43577696Maybe it's a religious thing - a little bit of stupid uncomfortableness to make you remember to be humble.Maybe she was from a hive world and she didn't know any better.Maybe she remembers it from before being orphaned and sent to the Schola. A mother, or more likely older sister, perhaps, wore it. Now she realizes that her older sister was just being an edgy teenager, but at the time, being a little girl, it seemed like the coolest thing to her. Now her older sister is gone, but she feels no shame in emulating a little bit of teenage stupidity that her older sister never had the chance to learn from, to outgrow. She still wears it when she puts the holy bolter shells into the chests of heretics, a name whispered for every enemy of man put down.
>>43577866Seriously, fuck ADB, like one anon said, I hate what he writes but I love the way he writes it. Betrayer made me depressed by how far gone the World Eaters/Word Bearers were (That moment of disbelief from the Ultramarine when Lotara said she hoped the WE got to him instead of the WB hit me hard). Considering how much focus the World Eaters had on brotherhood, it isn't hard to imagine that without the Nails they would have been Loyalists.Also RIP Argel Tal, I honestly wouldn't mind if they asspulled him back to life.
>>43578049>ripaccording to himself, he's having anything but peace
>>43578078Well you know what they say, may the dark gods have "mercy"on your soul.I hope he and Raum are at least hanging out in the hell space. They seemed to be on really good terms despite the whole possession thing.
>>43570530No he didn't?Grimaldus sees him after the battle, and asks him if he found his stormtrooper waifu. And he tells him no. ;_;
>>43578706You didn't read Bloof and Fire did you?He comes back for another battle to help the Celestial Lions, is listed as dead, Grimaldus actually carves the name of all the dead from this battle on a pillar, and in the epilogue, when the ship is about to leave, he comes to Grimaldus and give hil shit for listing him as dead. As the ship starts to power up, he realises that he'll be listed a deserter if he does not go back to Armaggedon, cue the "You may start running" from Grimaldus. If he did manage to get off the ship in time, that means he ran a shitload of kilometers in a very short time.The whole scene has a comedy feel.
>>43577844>Flame FalconsFunny, they changed their fluff a bit. From a no longer or sane human race, they went to marines spontaneusly bursting into flames, implied still loyalist renegades.
>>43578049Remembzr that evens with the nails, a shitload of them stayed loyal,they just got slaughtered on Istvaan 3.
>>43579281Sounds like they became a bunch of hotheads, and everyone knows those aren't sane at all.
>>43576609Context on this? I can kind of guess
>>43579327Fucking World Eaters man... best legion no doubt... they did everything they could until the end knowing that no matter what they would end up losing their shit to the nails.
>>43538981> Xarl fighting the loyalist champion in hand to hand combat
>>43579281Isn't that the Fire Hawks (aka. the Legion of the Damned)?
>>43538981> what is a primarch?
>>43581015Nope nope nope. Fire Hawks gor fucked over in the Badab War and a subsequent warp storm. They were the Legion of the Damned before but now GW can't choose between a bunch of slowly dying marines or the Imperial equivalent of daemons protecting humanity.To me they're a bunch of both. Based on the fire hawks but then with "daemonic" powers and based in the warp.Flame Falcons litteraly burst into flames.
From my OW campaign, where we're playing a Death Korps regiment. This was after losing a good portion of our regiment in a final battle to take an Imperial world back from Orks, when speaking to one of the few civilians that actually wasn't terrified of us. >"Do not cry, citizen. you waste your tears on us.">"But sir, there's just...there's just so many people dead.">"False.">"False?">"We are not people, we are tools. We were never people, we have always been tools, designed from birth to fight and die to atone for our forefathers' sins. You look across the battlefield and see corpses, but I only see broken tools, worn down from years of war and fighting, finally set free from the guilt and duty this galaxy has given them. You weep because they are lost, but nothing here was lost, only gained. Today we have taken this planet back, and my comrades have finally found peace. I would join them, but my duty is not yet finished, my debt not yet paid. So save your tears, citizen, they are better spent elsewhere."

>>43581094They don't need to choose. The Legion of the Damned dataslate gave six different alternatives and was open to even more. I just thought it was a nice way to add back some mystery to the LotD.As far as I know, the Flame Falcons were killed off by the Inquisition, with one still serving as a Blackshield in a Deathwatch short story.
>>43579939I always love Space Marines acting like genuine heroes toward regular humans.
>To Raldoron's surprise, Sanguinius took a few steps after the phantom. "Meros?" he said, and his words were low so they would not carry. "If you hear this, know my oath. I swear upon the legion, whose honour you have upheld, that your noble sacrifice will be repaid. You will not end in silence."
I don't have my copy with me to check quotes, but the short story Honor Among Fiends in the Space Marine Omnibus has plenty of feels in it.

'You must know this one does not live, ministrator-medic-equivalent.'>'Aye,' growled Antaloch, 'and yet his due must be given.'>'Despite the likelihood of sustaining lethal damage yourself.'>'Just so,' said the Apothecary. He fought the urge to cover the precious geneseed flasks. A moment of stillness passed. >'Your stance is defensive, yet not indicative of self-preservation,' stated the warsuit. 'A theory. During the death ritual, you recover a substance and/or information code that your warrior caste deems vital.'>Antaloch stared up at the towering figure, but said nothing.>'Interesting,' said the xenos giant. 'Proceed then, by all means.' Raising its rifle in a brief salute, the battlesuit boosted up into the skies on twin tongues of flame.>Blinking in disbelief, the Apothecary voxed, 'Captain Rumann? When this is over, we need to talk.'Not really as heartwaming/heartwrenching as the other examples in this thread. But I liked this one a lot since it actually shows the Tau's ideals in practice rather than just stating how they are the nicest guys in 40k. Goes to show how much of a bro Farsight is. The fact that he bothers to understand his enemy even in the middle of combat helps solidify his position as best Tau dude.
>>43585147Daily reminder that in "The Darkest Hour" or whatever it was a Tau commander stopped an assault on an Imperial world because it spotted Ciaphas Cain and decided "HOLY SHIT SOMEONE THEY MIGHT LISTEN TO."

>>43585644I was raised Lutheran, but ended up going atheist and didn't go to church for several years. The time that I went to a Christmas service with my family felt terrifying - everyone singing a hymn together with a bunch of flickering candles felt a lot creepier, especially since I felt I didn't belong. And then at the Easter sevice with my grandmother's church, they went to the back, lit a fire while chanting in latin, scattered water around everywhere...Faith is cool and amazing, and I respect it, even if from a distance. But it can also be terrifying if you aren't a part of it - which the Imperium would probably use to its full effect.
