  1. There are various dockyards listed in fluff but their full capabilities are not really discussed. Kormoroshi (sp?) Dockyards seem to be able to produce bespoke custom cruisers from the keel up, so....
  2. When there is no 'almost' and the arch militant fights dark eldar wyches bare naked. When the music mostly comes from the soundtracks to Heavy Metal, Mortal Kombat, Conan the Barbarian, and Dune. When the players name their ship the Night City. When the layers measure their ships firepower in 'Death Stars'. When the players point out that if the torpedoes have virus warheads full of life eater virus, how to they NOT have an exterminatus weapon?
  3. In one of the BL novels about the Damocles Gulf Crusade, even though they all arrive at about the same time, the RT fleet is scattered around the edge of the star's gravity well and takes some time to regroup.
  4. When the party asks 'How many nukes do we have in storage? We want to leave a 'Best' quality one behind after we rob the Faceless Lord. Might take him a day or two to figure out that stuff is missing.' 'Is it heresy to add Wyches to my harem?' 'Does the admech have a 'bridge bunny' cult of explorators we can recruit?' 'So, in other words, the warlord titan is started by playing the theme to Gigantor?'
  5. You know GW is running out of ideas when... ... they finally look like they MIGHT wrap up the Cypher storyline.....
  6. If that's the truth, they'd have issues with my last campaign, the players dubbed it 'Do Techpreists Dream Electric Sheep?'
  7. I'll say that the RT in my campaign developed something of a Harem, being the last survivor of the line.
  8. I should never have given Messiahcide the keys. But things had gotten busy in my life and it seemed like a good idea....
  9. Isn't that a redundancy? I thought all bagpipes counted as sonic power weapons?
  10. When you have several such ships and are not sure which one you left your stuff on. When your magos biologis starts a genetic engineering program for your harem. When you have enough juvenat drugs to stay young long enough to find out if you got your money's worth. If you have pict casters on your helmets so the player left behind on the ship knows just how lucky he is.
  11. When your Wych has enough pain tokens to take on the Justice League single handed.., ..after a good night on the town in Footfall.
  12. If you have ever stopped a chaos dreadnought by injecting the grox in the larder with 'slaught. All the grox....
  13. Any ship with the following component: Pecuniam Situla (S1, P1): a massive storage vault containing a diving board and approximately three cubic acres of financial security.
  14. The issue with Askellon is the warp storms make trade outside the sector tricky.
  15. I'd make a point to buy it now before FFG randomly drops it without warning like every other RPG they've ever made. Just sayin.
  16. If Space Marines are impressed by your ork kill count, you may be playing OW as the Armageddon Steel Legion. If, on getting the Spray and Pray in Fallout 4, you immediately named it 'Heavy Bolter' and started gunning down supermutants, you may have been playing OW as the Armageddon Steel Legion. If you can describe the taste of Squiggoth, you may be playing OW as the Armageddon Steel Legion.
  17. Yeah, we're still short one book for OW, the Specialist splatbook.
  18. I'd have had them find an Orangutan with a sign that read 'Please do not feed the Books'.
  19. I could post a few of the canned adventure derailments, but the most spectacular of those was over in Only War. The sad part was they demolished most of them using only common sense. Soulreaver was the worst in RT: "We're working for the Dark Eldar, let's assume we're going to get shafted and possibly enslaved and plan accordingly." Parking the ship out of range of the surface guns and taking small craft to the surface, followed by splitting the party and a concealed teleport homer led to The First Battle of the Sphere in short order, between the RT's private army and the Eldar...
  20. This explains a great deal about why the Imperium is losing Cadia....
  21. It'd really your call. You need to measure it against the abilities you won't be getting instead.
  22. Those divisions get rather loose on occasion. (Parol handing defacto command of the space forces at Armageddon to Helbrecht, Ultramarine fluff in general... A good example of how it's supposed to work and doesn't is in the CC novel Emperor's Finest. In theory the guard and the SM are separate, but the reality is they simply come in and dictate to everyone how the war will be run, as they're, by nature, the most experienced officers in the room, nine times out of ten. When they are not their feathers can get a bit ruffled [war meeting in Helsreach, anyone?])
  23. Yes, Captain, but what you don't know is; while you've been closing with us, and gloating about how you'll board us, I've had my men reloading our torpedo tubes...
  24. Both have since been retconned, though I'll have to go find the quotes. I believe the business with Bucharis was in the most or second most recent 40k core book. I seem to recall the Retribution class (got confused with Imperial Fists) in Grey Hunter, but it's existence is provided for in BFG (Venerable Battlebarge, a lovely fluff catch all for any large ship that falls outside what should normally be available). Remember in Armageddon fluff the Space Wolves seized part of the fleet following the first war for Armageddon. As far as the chain of command goes; remember Rule 0 of Imperial Command - if your superiors betray the Emperor, they're not in charge anymore. Report to the nearest loyalist command for further orders.
  25. The Fleet Bucharis wasted attacking the Space Wolves was Bakka. This was in Tempestus. The Young School would have been effectively sided with the Space Wolves (and, IMHO is probably where the Wolves got that Emperor class BB from). Supposedly, they beat the Young School in a mass fleet battle that... sort of wouldn't have happened if they were all busy attacking the Fang at the same time.
