Hey All,

I challenge anyone NOT to be inspired by Giger's Alien...a groundbreaking film & characters...

Agree Tolkein was first...all the elements of origins..

Space Marines: Stormies from star wars
I'll disagree there, when I was a kid we all wanted to be Imperial Stormtrooper's...but then Lucas decided to make them the butt of every intergalactic henchmans joke with the poor showing in "Return...", seriously beaten by Ewok's sheesh!

Could you really see the Ultramarines or Black Templar's being beaten by little teddy bears?! Actually Id like to see planetfall as the Luna Wolves first stumble across Endor...ahhh the fur fly's...little bastards...

In all seriousness, I would support the idea of a forum based room...when I eventually get some time to play rather than Mod...you would think that all the mod-testing I would be quite a handy DOW player...ah well

Cheers,

Yes, yes i can...
Man, if they can take down stormies, who are much cooler than ultramarines and black templars, the sky's the limit for those pesky ewoks.

and a room/forum thingy for Heresy members only would be great, i've had enough of people shouting all kinds of things at people because they were slow or didn't help, IT'S a GAME PEOPLE! HAVE FUN! NOT KILL EACH OTHER OVER IT!

i would also like to say this to people on CoD 4, it is amazing how many grenades can be thrown in a short space of time..... hurts too

Ok, so are you saying (in jest of course) that the Star Wars Stromtroopers could take the Ultrasmurfs or the Templar's?!

And then on top of that the Ewok's could do them both?!!!

Man, I am modding the wrong race...should have worked on a WH40K Ewok mod heheheheee

CoD4 or BF2???

I am a big BF2 player, but have heard some disturbing stuff about the online multiplayer CoD4...

Cheers,

Fantasy is ripped off of Tolkien, sure, but Tolkien pretty much lifted all his stuff from Norse myths right down to names. The idea of rings of power wasn't his by any means.

That and his characters are rather 1 dimensionial (with the exception of Golum) and he can't really write that well. - Just my opinion.

Totally agree. He might have been the father of modern fantasy, but there are dozens who have done it faaaaar better.

Gemmell, Feist, George R.R. Martin, Hobb, Mieville, the list goes on and on.

PS, the lord of the rings trillogy is sooo self indulgent, and could have used some seriously ruthless editing in my opinion. Hobbit was much better.

I would love to see teddy bears with sticks and rocks try and break open Power Armor. Unless you're the "I don't need a helmet" sergeant, then you're impenetrable. Eat Lead, midget Wookies!

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

According to the demo (DE only), the flyer units are:
# the Maurader Bomber for the Imps
# Landspeeder Tempest for SM
# Fighta Bomma for the greenskins
# the Tau Barracuda
# the Chaos Hell Talon
# the Nightwing for Eldar
# the Raven for DE

Looks like some Forge World goodness made it into the game. (:
