Yessss... at last! after more than 115 pages and two years of real time, the history just justified the smash, crush and obliteration of the durchii elfdar...
I love that word... "obliteration" it fills your mouth with so many promises of death and gore...
Of course, although i wanted to kill her fo so long, im a slave of the plot.
a pair of new pics in the galleries... and the "whats happening" section uploaded. Done aand done.
On september it will be Eatatau 3rd birthday, so be prepared for a new Art&fic contest soon ;)
Johnson sure is talking like a Space Marine here. But didn't he forsake their ways and the emperor when he joined the ttau? Isn't he working towards the greater good now?
Also this droid finds it odd that Johnson nearly killed himself trying to save a 'pawn'. It's their nature to be expandable isn't it?
And he couldn't probably predict getting saved by the dark eldar to serve as their slave could he?
The way I see it, he is ether a lucky fool, that makes it up as he is going or he is a wicked chessmaster.
Just as planned...
Okay, that moment is like "This is Sparta". Just much, much more awesome.
I am bunring to see what Kor'la does to the remaining Shadows. And especially: Will he be able to top Johnson's badasery?
My guess is, that he replaced "For the Empire" with "For the Greater Good"/"For my Friends".
Also WH40k Space Marines get a considerable intelligence upgrade and so with him being an exceptional space marine such a plan isn't that far fetched. Of course he might not have had it planned all out from the beginning - but at least feigning weakness earlier was part of the plan.
6th edition Allies rule
Considering that in 6th edition, Space Marines and Tau can be "Battle Brothers" (pg 112 of the 6th Edition WH40K rules), then Johnson is not as much of a traitor as some might believe.
Blessed is the mind too sma... ahem.
It seems there is no such thing as "former Space Marine". Good for them, I guess. Definitely nice to see he's got everything under control. The odds looked really bad for the team.
And shouldn't it be "shroud of the weak who repent"?
They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them.
They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them.
They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity.
They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.
Did some minor edits to this speech.
Still sounds just as epic.
Is that all you got?
Guilt, doubt and fear?
Guilt is the shroud of the weak who repent, and live writhing in the darkness of his own wretched past.
Doubt is the sin of those who deny their purpose.
Bless the heart too strong for doubt...
For he who follows the will of the throne, stands above men and empires.
I know no remorse or guilt.
I know no doubt.
But above all.
