Arch is a dumbass who hasn't paid any attention to stuff Astartes-guy himself has put out. In that theory video, he wasted time speculating on who the white-helmeted guys were when all of the Retributors' insignia have been known for a while now.

Most likely some Warp critter. You can see several be-tentacled things floating in the background during that shot, and the shadowy thing which impacts the orb-entity looks just like them.

This also lends credence to one of the orbs' lines: "Impossible. We will never survive." Even though these things are connected to the Warp, they aren't immune to it.

>> No.71820343


Danke kind Anon.

>> No.71820374

While it's fully possible I personally don't think so for several reasons.
a) A random warp critter is too out-of-context for the rest of the series. The context is that of "space marines fighting rebels of an uprising orchestrated by xenos", and things that we see do not go outside of that outline. We have astartes, human troopers, nobles as leaders, xenos as mastermind who put astartes on xeno world. Everything follows the same theme so far, and everything is interconnected and flows out of another. "Suddenly warp critter" seems like too out of the left field for otherwise very tight series.
b) Colour scheme. The colours in that scene match what we have seen before - blue for orbs and their minions, black for the inquisition psyker. When we previously saw things from his mind view he was surrounded by black smoke, and the shadow looks like black smoke.
To add to that - "several be-tentacled things" are other astartes sucked into the orb. They look black and they are humans. The shadow is also black, suggesting that it's also human of origin, tying it to the psyker.

I'd really like for this moment to actually be clarified by the author.

>I really like this pysker design.

As someone said in one of the other threads, so much of what makes Astartes awesome are the constraints imposed by it being a one-man project. You don't have to have too much complexity in the environments when you cast everything in shadow and use minimal lighting to its greatest advantage. You don't have to have voice-acting when you can tell everything through character action and body language. You don't have to bother animating a face when you give the guy a cool mask.

Also people saying "this guy purely done his own thing, it's just "warp" man!" is strange. With everything else ripped directly from 40k, you think the happenings with the orbs is purely made by himself? Can easily take influence and work from multiple 40k sources.

Umm. Here I go, opening the GW website - and seeing that manlet marine's lineup for SM, DA, BA, SW, DW. RG, GK etc is still selling - they just don't ANY ship online orders due to Corona-chan.

Here I go, reading through SM codices and noticing that Primaris straight up have fewer options in every way.

Here I go, opening the recent tournament lists for Imperium armies and seeing next to 0 Primaris in them - because pretty much all of them suck ass tabletop-wise compared to manlets.

And for some reason, doing all of that makes me strongly consider that you don't own minis and don't play the tabletop.

1. Fucking when?
2. Fucking how? Nearly the new Primaris variants of old characters fall into one of the two classic categories that included the absolute majority of named characters since the 6th: "Literally worse than the generic option" and "nowhere near worth it's point cost". The only noticeable exception I can think of is Shrike. In very occasional lists, Phobos captains or Primaris leutenants are preferable to manlet variants for quite specific reasons - but you'll find about a dozen captains-on-bike or librarians for every one of those.

People like that forget that despite some of their "specialties" Space Marines are rapid-response by definition. Something like that is just rednundant.

I'm not actually hating on the Astartes Guy for this. It's a weak spot, but even the sun has spots, and it doesn't ruin it for me. Especially since GW's official Primaris have troops like that, so we can't exactly blame him for a mistake GW themselves make.

Exactly my point, you have the whole chapter already being a rapid reaction force, I don't think there's anything to really make them stand out from basic troops with the material we have, especially since it's stated that the chapter as a whole operates with many small units over a broad front, so you can't even say that they're specialist units used for sensitive targets when the rest of the chapter is acting as more of a blunt force.

It's just how money and desire for plastic miniatures interact to make more money. And the point about how pointless it is to hat AoS when you don't buy FB stands perfectly. It's not the consumer's fault - but it's a natural responce to consumer not buying FB, just like how consumer not buying FB is the natural responce to it's sorry state, which is turn was a natural responce to what people buy.

>You clearly don't want them to buy the minis to support the shitty practices
I'm not the one who decides what is a shitty practice for every consumer. Personally, I find absolutely everything that GW does to be a part of a consistent and sound profit-oriented plan that absolutely fucks me over in every possible way. So I only ever bought recasts and thirb party supplies, and did not mourn for FB, and don't hate AoS now (which I buy recasts for). But people who hate FB, stop buying FB and then hate GW for abandoning FB baffle me.

What is retarded is EXPECTING (i.e. - acting entitled to) GW to act in way that would favor... well, your interests period - that's not something that companies ever do. But also - expecting GW to act in a way that considers your demands and the demands of anyone who stands with you in any way if your lot does not give them money. It's just retarded.

I can critisize Apple to kingdom come - but I'm not surprized in the slightest when they present another shitty overpriced product. Who surprise me are the people who buy said overpriced products and then get angry when they are presented with another one, or stop buying a particular kind of ocerpriced products and then act angry when Apple cuts it's support.

Of course mate, Astartabro managed to confuse the powerhouse of autism that is /tg/ so your questions are completely valid.
While metallic and skeletons do feature heavily with the Necrons and the C'tan they would never use the warp for any reason, they avoid it even harder than the Imperium. Since the warp nowadays only appears with chaos fuckery I get why you found it unlikely the big four are involved and you are correct. According to the creator this is a minor race that is weirdly humanoid and titanic that used the warp in one way or another.
Personally I liked the idea that it had something to do with the Old Ones for example.

I have a theory that the Orb, (Assuming it IS Yu'Vath in actuality) took the marines as payment to the denizens of the warp for safe passage but on inspection they determined the orb creature's soul to be far larger and far more delicious than five tiny humans by comparison.

Because the three psychic shockwave attacks were weak where as the second 'attack' was merely pulling them into the core of the orb not dissimilar to how a black hole might function. I don't know how anyone could think the first shockwaves were effective to be honest.

I'm guessing more of a psychic attack than a physical one, which failed completely, which was what the sphere was complaining about in the skype call.
"The Astartes resist our touch."

Again, the whole point is the sphere couldn't fuck with the space marines with psychic powers alone, so it had to "break the seal", and it grabbed them physically and jump into the warp, which fucked it over.

One orb is on one ship, probably that frigate shown in the opening shot, and the other is on a different ship, which the team of Retributors has been in the process of raiding throughout the series.

Everything going on is happening in the same timeframe, as evidenced by the video feeds which the Veterans are watching showing the raiding team closing in on the vault, and by the fact that the Inquisition guy gives a warning to the Marines which they try to pass to the team, but too late.

>> No.71824312

>Just to clarify, are there two orbs on the ship (one chained and the absorby one) or is the chained one a flashback?
There's two orbs, on two different ships.
The first orb was already captured, and the Inquisitor + space marine captain has it on their ship.
The space marines boarded a rebel held ship, and there was a second orb on it. The space marines shoved in the dataknives, and that allowed the Inquisitor to intercept the warp communication between the two sphere entities.

Everything happens at the same speed as the video.

IMO, Impulsors are smaller and are for more specific tasks.

The chapter obviously has some inways with the Inquisiton, and the wiki actually says the Impulsor Sargents are groomed there.

So boarding a ship that has a psychic orb guarded by competent (though outmatched) rebel armsmen and psychers is probably something more suited for the Impulsor squad than tactical.

Notice that they're ready for the Psykers in 4, they've obviously dealt with them before or were briefed about it, possible working closely with the Inquisitor.

Also explains why the Inquisitor tries to get a warning out to the Impulsor squad. They might've been working together even during Deathwatch service.
