Well, if you want to take that literally, you could stick them on Red Corsair Marines and give the rest bolters and the champ a Combi.

Just realised the Fire Dragons I bought were not the most recent sculpt, but are in fact the Rogue Trader (1991) sculpt by Jes Goodwin.

They're pretty short and I think I prefer the new sculpts. Should I flip them on eBay (or otherwise just try to sell them off)? Or are they potentially worth keeping as a collectors item? No idea if I've stumbled across some hard-to-find models or not.

It was never turned into dust. It just had massive cracks appear in it like a huge meteor had hit it and it is uninhabitable and geologically unstable, so nobody can be on it. Cadian troopers are common all over the galaxy due to how the system works. Guys from Cadia capture planet, commanding officer is given the planet and becomes the Planetary Governor, remaining troops became PDF, they then recruit, train and maintain Cadian military shit. Rinse and repeat over and over. Same for all other Guard units. Their goal is to one day reclaim Cadia, yeah, when it is safe to do so. It is possible to do it now but Imperium can't go and send huge armadas of Mars tech priests to go and fix it.

I wish "historical" campaigns were a thing again, rather than every new release having to crowd in at the end of the timeline and "advance the story". I'd love a campaign book revisiting interesting battles from iconic stuff like the 2nd Armageddon War or Tauros, maybe even some less well-known stuff like the Macharian crusade or even the Age of Apostacy (hopefully without getting into HH-style-spinoff territory)

On a related note, remember how they released Best Inquisitor Loks model at the same time he was canonically confirmed to have died at Anphelion Base? It's disheartening that people would probably be annoyed by something like that nowadays.

Your bowed head is supplication, as a peasant to his liege on harvest day, you are giving us an offering. Your arm extended backward indicates your second, the one that is closest to you, which in their rural culture was most commonly their spouse. curved arm indicates.... intimacy.

Cadia is fucked beyond all repair. It's crust is broken, it's atmosphere is burned away, and the impact knocked it away from its star. Just as important, the pylons exploded, meaning the planet is now completely unprotected from the Eye of Terror. Even if they could retake the planet and defend it for decades while it is repaired, the inhabitants would never be suitable for the Guard due to warp exposure.

Dark Angels have suffered badly from all the changes in the game over the last decade. Everything that made them unique has been ruined.

Dark Angels were unique for being able to field an entire army of Terminators or Bikers, and using them both together was a cool and unlikely pairing. Now anyone can do that, and it's a fucking terrible combination even for Dark Angels. The capstone to all of this is Primaris Marines, which utterly wreck their lore in ways that have never been resolved. You can either play a painfully useless fluffy army or a sub-par version of an effective one.

In 3rd edition GW played their questionable loyalties up massively. Most of their lore was written to make you question their loyalties, especially the purposefully incomplete story of why the Dark Angels pursue their traitor Legionnaires so ruthlessly. It couldn't just be a matter of honour of they would abandon entire campaigns for it, surely?

Then the quality of fluff writing took an absolute nosedive in 4th and especially 5th edition, and that subtlety was sandblasted away. What was once a strange obsession that hinted at darker motives was now a completely retarded obsession hinting at some kind of developmental disorder. The Hunt for the Fallen does not matter at all, because the Dark Angels are exactly what they appear to be.

By the time the Horus Heresy series started covering the Dark Angels, they had completely removed any hint of mixed loyalties whatsoever. Lion was just a violent weirdo, Luther was doing Chaos rituals, and the thought of switching sides never even crossed Lions mind.

If you want Knights go with Grey Knights or Black Templars. If you want green Marines go with Salamanders.

For the humans of Taros this was a chance for the first time of their lives to guide their own destinies. This motivated them to work harder for the T'au than they ever had for their former Imperial masters. The worker conclaves of Taros reorganised themselves into an alliance of mining outpost and fortresses called the Union of Iron. The workers of the Union worked closely and enjoyed a standard of life far beyond that of their forefathers, as well as a sense of a stake in their future.

Lordran's a good army. They have great anti large monster units like pic related. Their Giant bomb throwers are great artillery. They have tanky units like Havel Knights. Their near universal poise rule means it's hard to stop their attacks. Their downsides would be few flying units besides Batwing Demons and really no cavalry or mounted units I can think of. That's weird because Boletaria I think has horses and Drangleic has Dragonriders and Lothric has Drake riders. I guess it's a balancing thing like how Dwarfs have virtually none besides shieldbearers?

Where? All I see is that the guy which in the timeline at the start of the Kroot joining of the empire starting to understand Kroot evolution.

"They were not about to rebuild a society that had led them into war and then failed to defend them. Led by a visionary leader named Anghkor Prok, they advocated a return to the old ways, to the time before the coming of the Ork Rok. There would be no rebuilding and the Kroot would revert to the traditional ways that had served them perfectly well for thousands of years. A compromise was reached where each kindred would spend time as mercenaries and fight for other races, returning to their home world periodically to pass on any useful genetic material they had acquired following their victories. A number of warspheres remained on Pech to guard against further invasions and the mercenary Kroot departed to ply their trade amongst the stars."

The old transitional ways clearly meant their savage practices.
