>> No.71713993

well kinda

if it were say a flat area of 28km long and 2km wide that'd be just 56m^2 per person, without factoring in equipment or hull depth or internal bulkheads and decks and so on, which is like a square with sides of 7.5m

we know these things have huge engines because we can see them; we assume they have huge reactors to power the huge engines because we've heard about those, and the huge magazines to feed each huge gun must take up significant amounts of space so even if we try and work out the actual volume of the ship as represented on paper we still have to cut out huge volumes of it, including the cavernous bridges and other upper deck structures that we know from artwork tend to be large, empty spaces which are impractically ostentatious ("gothic")

for a fully military vessel, a crew of a million at 23km long might be about right - you're going to have several shifts, it's filled with weird technocrap as well as dormitories, commissaries, food storage, and all the other shit

after all, they might not use Cortana but they do need space for crypts to put servitor controllers in so the doors can open with that swooshy noise

in 40k void shields are immensely powerful so what matters are massive volleys of fire from huge weapons arrays, so the bigger the ships the more weapons it carries and the more damage it can do to void shields. That's the "technical" poorly thought out reason for why 40k ships are so big.

It's no different from invading and capturing a city really. Just a matter of landing a couple hundred thousand troops so you can control the thing and hope the defenders don't try to scorched-earth the place while you're in there.

Really it's just another entry in the great "40k Has A Scale Problem" saga.

It was a pre-Crusade battleship that the Emperor had specifically assigned to the Dusk Raiders. Supposedly its power was such that it could go 1-on-1 with a Gloriana and put up a good fight while doing so.

Much later the Imperium copied the design for the Despoiler-class battleship as part of the Gaerox Prerogatives, but this turned out to be a bad idea as Chaos had quite literally influenced the design and caused most of the people involved to turn traitor.

The others make the Sokar look like a speeder, they're titanic. I think they're mentioned a few times in Inferno, during the landings?

>> No.71717202

There's several, all larger. Going from memory here.

The Warhawk was an old pattern even for Stormbirds. The two Egyptian named ones were newer and bigger. The Apophis was the biggest, the class was nicknamed 'Sunkiller'.

The Warhawk could deploy a standard Legion infantry company. I think that's the one we see the most on the page, in all Legions.
The other two could carry more, I think up to 300 troops(?) and had battlefield command stations/equipment and could deploy heavy armour. Void-shielded etc.

The Thousand Sons definitely had the bigger ones, the Apophis. For some reason they have a large Legion air-wing and use Astartes pilots. It's not played up very well in the fluff but is established. I think to link to the old Epic game where Tzeentch was the Chaos air units.

I think the Raven Guard had a stealthed pattern as well, with it's own class name, but I can't recall it.

>> No.71717228

Sokar is the small one.
Apophis class Stormbirds are called Sunkillers because of size
Khonsu class Stormbirds are known just by name, by numbers in Inferno I assume they are "medium ones".

Only reason why Legions changed stormbirds into smaller thunderhawks and even smaller stormeagles is because of GW not being able to sell that fucking huge models.

I mean kinda. The stormbird itself was a very late addition and basically just a fatass thunderhawk, but it's absolutely true the T-Hawk was *the* uncontested space marine attack and transport craft for like 20 years, and selling those big ass models was hard. So they introduced the smaller plastic and resin alternatives like the stormeagle, the firebeagle, the lightningsmeagol, etc (originally in the old IA books, but greatly expanded in the last couple editions).

Thing to remember is, the Thunderhawk was not consistent over the years either. Originally it was basically a flying rhino with a cannon on it. Then it kind of chunked up over a couple editions in to the all-rounder beast we're familiar with. So in some sense the storm eagle is a callback to the oldschool thunderhawk.

World Eaters main schtick in 30k is that they have free chainaxes on everything, which is bananas good, and have essentially free rage (more attacks when charging) and hatred (rerolls in CC) when using the right setup. This works best with large squads of cheap models, so you've got the best horde army in the game straight away. For 225 points, you can have twenty wounds of t4 3+ save dudes, swinging with the force of a heavy bolter 81 times on the charge, with rerolls. Add a 45 point apothecary, and you make them a third again harder to kill.

Or do as >>71720831 says and pay an extra hundred points to make them have jump packs rather than footslogging, though that means you can't fit them in a 1k berserker assault army unless everyone is naked, which leaves you vulnerable to contemptors and such

both of these are the palatine aquila; the aquila is the symbol of the Emperor, palatine just refers to the use of that symbol to represent officials in service of the Emperor; the term eventually gave rise (long after the end of the Roman Empire in any meaningful sense) to the term "paladin", which itself has gone through many changes in meaning until today it is largely used to represent holy warriors in service of a god

variations in the styling of the aquila are not relevant to distinguishing it from "palatine" and "non palatine" versions: the possible aquilae which could not be a palatine aquila would be one in use by forces not loyal to the Emperor (which was probably quite common even during the Great Crusade, since the symbol was clearly remembered by human societies), or the many "winged" variations drawing heraldic use of the aquila but not displaying it in full, such as the winged skull of the Solar Auxilia or the various winged swords, blood drops etc in use as the personal heraldry of Primarch and by extension their sons, the legions; this is normal heraldic practice, but there is no particular difference between full-eagle versions whether they have one or two heads or their wings are in a particular way

to be clear, the granting of the use of the palatine aquila to the Emperor's Children is simply granting them the *general* usage of it in their heraldry, rather than the *specific* uses of it as honour badge (as was common for Terran veterans during the crusade if they had also fought in the Unification Wars, and is quite common on official character models, even non-unique characters)

this denotes the favour the legion was held in, and also fit their role as equerries and emissaries of the Emperor; but other legions were granted some use of the aquila before it came into general use as a sign of loyalty during the Heresy, as for example the pre-Lorgar Imperial Heralds carried the aquila on their duties as, well, heralds of the Emperor

"the great Aquila in its variations signifies both the Imperium of Humanity and loyalty to the Emperor as its master,"

Book 6, pg. 93-94 they mention a skeletal version of the Imperial Aquila and show several vehicles bearing skeletal version of the bottom aquila in >>71722399. The book also makes references to a "Terran Aquila". Book 7, pg. 283 mentions and shows a Ferrum Aquila. Book 1, pg. 76, also features a dreadnought bearing "Aquila Miltaris". Custodes, as a sign of their status, were able to carry the single-headed aquila with lightning bolts (Book 7, pg. 119).

It's almost like there are several, distinct aquilas, each with their own uses.

>common for Terran veterans

Raptor Imperialis, a raptor head (usually with crossed lightning bolts) was a mark of a Unification War veteran (Book 2, pg. 127; Book 3, pg. 67; Book 4, pg. 94; Book 5, pg. 95).

but there aren't, because that's not what palatine means:

>having local authority that elsewhere belongs only to a sovereign

wear aquila - speak for Emperor when Emperor not there


yes, also a terran marking, but the Raptor Imperialis is the single-headed version prior to the Treaty of Mars; they are both Aquilae (aquila means eagle), but "Raptor Imperialis" simply means "Imperial bird of prey", as raptor in modern English usage denotes birds of prey generally; in classical Latin raptor has many meanings, through which the Vulgate and finally the English usage are derived to mean "bird of prey"


the Imperialis was in use for the Solar Auxilia from the start, that's why it's on their models

since you've got book 1 open, p103

"While the great Aquila in its variations signifies both the Imperium of Humanity and loyalty to the Emperor as its master, and there is much allegory bound up into its form, for the Emperor's Children it also now represented their own deeds as well"

I suggest you read up on how heraldry actually works, because that seems to be the missing knowledge on your part: your misreading of "Palatine Aquila" is understandable, but very obviously a misreading: heraldic devices are generally invented or adopted, with adoption coming when the subject has a direct link to an existing user of the same device, and that's all that happened here - their action in saving their wounded Emperor, dying to the last warrior alongside his own Legio Custodes, earned them the right to wear the same flappy bird as his big bois

>but there aren't

Yet I listed several different aquilas, which look different from one another.

>wear aquila - speak for Emperor when Emperor not there

Wear a single-headed aquila with lightning bolts.

>yes, also a terran marking

Do you have examples of Unification/Terran veterans wearing the aquila to denote this fact? We have several pieces saying the Raptor Imperialis marks someone as a Unification War veteran.

>the Imperialis was in use for the Solar Auxilia from the start, that's why it's on their models

Yes, and during the Heresy it became a marking to signify loyalists.

>earned them the right to wear the same flappy bird as his big bois

Yes, the flappy bird that's different from Imperial Aquila, Ferrum Aquila, Aquila Militaris, etc.

What's your definition of sucker punch you fucking retard?
Guy punches you in your ugly face without warning , you both start to brawl and at one point he is like: "nah, I'm bored but it was fun, innit?" and walks away/starts laughing like a brain damaged autist. If you consider finishing this fight by knocking him down a honourless sucker punch you should just stay in your basement forever.

People should also be reminded in that moment Nemiel was about to execute a Librarian for using his powers to protect the Invincible Reason from the demons crawling all over it.

The real crime is Nemiel' sudden flip in characterization after the previous two stories.

Yeah,he should have let his legion being slughtered by deamons, just to uphold a total sham that was Nikaea. Neither Guilliman or Sanguinius gave a shit about dictate when stakes were high.
Using Thorpe as a source is dumb, he literally admited that Nemiel had to be killed because otherwise he would HAVE TO fight Zahariel. How can he be taken seriously after that kind of statement. Thorpe was/is a cancer on both game and prose. People who qoute him are nobs (forgiven) or homos.

They have a lot of legios, like Legio Destructor most numerous titan legion(also loyalists), Xestobi... that one from Prospero and there are others

Okay but everything is cannon. That's the problem. That's been the problem with the Heresy series since the beginning.

They refuse to put anybody in charge of the IP, and now we have conflicting Primarch powerlevels and characterizations, nonsensical plotlines and outright stupid left turns.

Take the MCU for example. Say what you will about it, but at least part of the reason for their unprecedented success and longevity is because they have one guy coordinating the whole thing, making sure each movie is up to the barest minimum of quality.

BL doesn't have that. HH doesn't have that anymore. 40k doesn't have it. And the lore has routinely suffered for it.

There's no reason to take any of it seriously if fucking anybody that can bring 3 words together is canon.
