By the Emperor
As someone who's just getting into the series via the Horus Heresy I have no idea what's going on. I've only read up to Battle for the Abyss
@OP this is amazing!
For the Emperor!
It's just a general representation. Pre-Heresy, fights were formal contests; poat-Heresy, they were outright warfare.
That makes sense. I was trying to figure out if this was an actual event I hadn't seen yet or something considering the face change.
Is there a book series?
i want new w40k games so badly , but they messed up each and everyone of them after dawn of war 2.
40k lore always seemed so badass, where should I start with the reading?
OF the Emperor! ...ew
Hey you fux wait until somebody wins The Duel to start killing each other
He who fucked everything up in the first place by being the galaxy's biggest asshole.
The guy on the left, is that Anwar Sek?
Horus heresy which is still going and plenty other books as well
Depends Horus rising is the 30k and if you want current 40k the beast arises series is 12 books completed and is really awesome
2 cups of caffeine you heretic
Gaunt's Ghosts, it's relatively light entry-level stuff
Imperial Fists and Emperor's Children before the Heresy and during.
I'm holding out a tiny bit of hope for inquisitor: Martyr
I just wanted more Dark Crusade
I was told to start with the Horus Heresy series since it would give a good look into how things became what they are in the main series.
That was probably why I was confused. Last I heard the Fists were supposed to be enforcing Terra's defenses so I hadn't seen much of them.
Dude, go play Dawn of War with the Ultimate Apocalypse Mod. FRICKEN TITANS DUDE!!!
The parallax and subtle character movement is awesome. But the explosion is cheesy as hell.
They've been sending out fleets but took a big hit against the Iron Warriors and now stuck at Terra with a few scattered everywhere.
Buddy. It's not a series, it's more like a Thesaurus Vol I. - MX.
Looks like Sigismund bout to whoop some pretty boy ass.
Yea! I know.. lightning would have been even cheeyer tho.
Well I'm not necessarily saying that AN explosion is cheesy. Just THAT explosion. It doesn't have any of the same depth the rest of the 1/
2/ animation has; Ideally it would start behind the characters then go in front of them. It doesn't even come from the spot that is later
3/ shown to be smoldering. And the graphic overlay looks very tacked-on. Maybe give that a fire effect or something to feel more organic?
Battlefleet gothic 2,war40k Mechanicum (nec vs mechs xcom style),Necromunda underhive coming out
It's not bad. Not great...yet, but not bad.
My husband says I should read that. He started me with Fulgrim and now I am reading Angel Exterminatus. Gaunts Ghosts is next.
I found the Eisenhorn trilogy to be a nice start. Gives you a sense of the 40k universe aside from space marines.
There is only one true path and this is the path of fire and pain.
Pre-heresy this was how mari escaped dealt with disputes between chapters. Champion fights. They hadn't gone to war against other marines.
You're a saint and a villain. They will spend months clicking and reading articles.
Yea! Its added on later and isnt in 3D space like the rest of the elements.. havent used overlays too much yet.. thax for the insight this
Usefull insight! Thax
No problem. You're definitely on the right track; keep at it!
This Looks like an Iron Warrior to me to be honest. Emperors Children is easy to recognize
This is the intro still to MK9 with new models.
Ah man I wonder if this makes Dark Eldar easier to play. I could never beat the Chaos Space Marines. They would wreck me.
Also, Soulstorm was such a great fucking game!
Wait until you read about Isstvaan III and V...
Also, Magnus did nothing wrong.
The Wolf came down to hard on The promethian people. His father, in all his intelligence, drove Magnus to his actions.
Good points and bad. Borale and 'METAL BAWKSES!'; great memes. But canonically the Blood Ravens lost the Kaurava campaign. The Orks won.
Have you tried Battlefleet Gothic: Armada? One of the best 40k games ever made, imo.
The beast arises is like 32k. It shows how everything started unraveling.
They were once brothers, but no more. Now they are enemies.
Still a good step into current standings of the imperium. My personal favorite is rynns world
I always played IG. If you live behind your meatshield long enough to get baneblades and titans, you just stomp everything.
I'm already past those. Battle for the Abyss is book 8. Istvaan was covered in books 3-5.
hell yeah brother. only challenge is getting there ;_;
Yeah Gaunts Ghosts are also a good series to come in at, unless you want the soft start, then the Cain series are basically Blackadder.
Death to your Corpse Emperor!! BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!! BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!! BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!! BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
I've been reading nothing but 40k for like 6 months. Started with Eisenhorn, read a bunch of HH but Gaunts Ghosts is my favorite so far.
Sick! Thanks everyone, I’m really digging the video so far and getting an overview of the story, I’ll read the wiki after
Nah, fist on the beastplate and templar cross on the pauldron. Also Iron Warriors were more grey than black, weren't they?
The legions VII and III were once cousins that fought against a common foe. Chaos truly corrupted the emperor's children beyond recognition
I want another Space Marine. That game was awesome, and the multiplayer was fun till the map packs diluted the player base and match making
Black and yellow. But you are right im just blind
Dude... This rules...
That appears to be the battle of terra, thats the blank templars imperial fist company vs the emperors children
I meant black templars but how it turned out is better
