The Ordo Xenos have a really helpful form that offers to ‘streamline’ the administration of marriage between Imperial citizens and Eldar ones. All you have to do is add your address, and a ‘ceremonial operations specialist’ will be there to resolve the matter in 28-456 days, depending on system traffic.
Of course! They need to set up the dinner!



(Yes that is from GW).

I think we’ll going to get the return of another loyalist primarch with psychic awakening. I’m calling it either russ or the lion

It's not. They teased the Khan, the Lion and I think Corax in a wolf novel while the big bad wolf was nowhere to be seen in the visions.

It would be weird if they announced the Kahn after they just released the White Scars codex without him in it.
Found the quote:
"But what else?’ demanded Logan, stepping closer, his insistence rolling from him like waves of heat. ‘The Eye has opened. What of the Wolf King?’.....‘No sign?’
‘None, my lord. There are stirrings, tempests through which even I cannot gaze. Even so, I saw a sleeper entombed in rock, and a white storm that rode upon a chariot of lightning. A shadow rises to the call of the Allfather’s messengers, a darkness that strikes from within. The benighted ones turn their supernal gazes upon our worlds – the Eater of Worlds, the Corpse-King and the Misbegotten Child move once more. The Cyclopean Fiend, we have already seen. Even the Golden One has broken his gaze from the Empyrean again. I felt its glare like a fire in my soul.
‘But nothing pertaining to the Sons of Fenris. Though the Thirteenth have come back and the Eye has opened, I saw nothing of Leman Russ’ return."
Khan would go well with the Psychic Awakening since he is the most pro psyker of the surviving loyalists. Or we might go more literal and have Lion get up from his beauty sleep.

I guess the salamanders will get a hand flamer and thunder hammer sprue since we already know what the fists one has.

In universes Sister's miracles are not warp is the canon, I mean they can always say "who did the tests?" but that the Ordo Heretics tolerates them would be a stretch.

Also the most powerful sister to ever lived made chaos seems like stage magicks.
That’s true, but in-universe Roboute is also a highly sceptical rationalist who lived the majority of his lifespan in a time when the Emperor was a physical being and much of the danger of the warp and humanity’s psychic potential was theory he wasn’t sharing due to it’s dangers. With the Soriatas and their faith-based psychic effects only coming to existence very recently in terms of the Imperial timeline, no wonder Guiliman, on encountering them for the first time, is highly sceptical of them. He can’t afford to be wrong. It’s him that tolerates the church, not the Ordo Hereticus, who effectively root out the bad apples rather than doubt the need for the entire ecclesiarchy.

As readers we know it’s highly unlikely to be Tzeentch and co, but to someone that’s default position is that A) the Emperor isn’t a god (another theory that he’s still wrestling with in the books, ultimately asking himself ‘if he has the power of one now, does it matter?’ ) and B) entire realms of hostile psychic entities offering the manifestation of physical gifts exist, no wonder he’s struggling with ‘miracles’.

Can I ask you guys why the Emperor was a shit father. He didn’t tell any of his sons the true nature of chaos. Look what happened to Curze, Lorgar, Magnus. Why did Big E not give a shit about his sons

Well...they didn't. Khan actually got along better with Horus than any of the Loyalists. Roboute eventually gained a respect for Khan's tactics and military prowess but they never liked each other.
Khan is probably the most reasonable loyalist left, with Vulkan's current status (ork jokes that way) being what it is. He'd sigh and say that he knew this would happen and then get back to killing traitors and xenos. He's happy to be out on the frontier away from all the politicking.

Short Answer: Arrogance and a lack of understanding of humanity

Long Answer: The Emperor was someone who acted like a god despite insisting he wasn’t. He assumed he was correct and acted like humans were machines instead of things with motivations and feelings. He expected order without question because he knew his plans were the best. Read “The Last Church” for a good insight to how his mind works.

Just found out that an AoS partworks magazine is coming to the UK, on the back of Conquest’s success.

Shame I have no interest in collecting Stormcast Eternals or Nagash, wish it was orcs/goblins.
That's cool. Can't say I have any interest in either army too (and I would join you in saying Orcs/Gobbos would be cool) but I'll probably get the first mag just for the chainrasps, they are some nice models and I could always use more ghosts in dnd. One of these days I'm going to wake up and discover I have a 2000 point Stormcast Eternal army just from the odds and ends I've gathered over the years.

The thing is, we still don't know what's going on and the Phoenix is clearly being used as an Eldar reference here so I doubt it's Fulgrim.

Started painting my first set over the weekend. Shout out to the 16 year old kid that showed me how to spray primer in the alley next to Warhammer Annapolis. Got a little green on my Death Guard and a little Blue on my Ultramarines. Will try to get at least a couple finished this week and then post pics.

looks like salamanders and imperial fists will get new primaris characters instead of lysander and hestan (well Tor Garadon isn't that new)

I've (almost) finished a thing.



I still need to clean some fuck ups on the white, put the shoulder decals and do the weathering, but that won't took long. Well, and some drybrush on the non-sargeant guys weapons. I tried to lower a bit the bar to get them done faster than usual, I'm kinda happy with the result/time.
