We know that Mortals can walk the realm of Chaos without using a Geller field, it says as much in the Chaos Daemon Codex with mortal champions having to quest across Khorne's realm in order to secure themselves a Juggernaught or Slaanesh's realm to gain a Seeker etc. Chaos Space Marines, especially the Word Bearers, don't always sail the empyrean with their Geller fields activated either.
If you don't oppose chaos you are free to walk the Realms, as the daemons probably take little interest in you. I don't believe that's the case with Draigo.

It would be sad If we had to take things that are reserved for other parts of 40k to explain cases disaster cases like Draigo! - Geller Fields - They're HUGE and for large Imperial vessels, smaller ships can't travel in the warp because they can't accomodate room for a warp engine + geller fields.

So this guy just happens to lug around a personal Geller Field (Something I don't think CAN exist), just in case he'd get pulled into the warp?

This fluff just ruins so many other fine aspects of 40k...

Now what about Eldar Warp Spiders who are described as insane enough to visit the Warp for split-seconds at a time and every time they risk the wrath of the daemonic inhabitants living there.

Everything would be fine if they just made Draigo an ambigous side story like other farcry stuff.

This guy shouldn't be put on the FREAKING tabletop, makes his fluff 100% accurate and true.

OT: My 100th post

Am I the only one worrying about the way fluff is developing?

I was positively surprised by the quality of the Dark Eldar. We also get more and more fluff on other alien species and so far it has kept a good standard - Tau are turning increasingly grimdark, because they have failed so ultimately with their ideas of peaceful negotiation, and necrons are just being more fleshed out in general.

It seems that only Chaos and The Imperium is going down the drain... Even though it's not 40k in the strictest sense I enjoy reading Dark Heresy from FFG. It assures me that incredible fluff can still be created in the spirit of the universe, on which 40k is based

I'd like to know if these are playable characters or just some fluff added to the codex. I hope Draigo isn't playable, sounds like he could whip out his junk and slay my entire army single handed with special rules such as Super Duper Cool Guy Daemon Slayer - Upon taking Draigo as an HQ unit in your army, all units within 48" hit and wound on a 1+ when fighting Chaos, if they happen to miss, they may re-roll all to hit and to wound rolls. After which, they proceed to tea bag all dead enemy units

Hmmmm I could write better fluff..... O well just another imperium money maker for GW.

But I hope that someone steps in and fixes this in the next couple of months.

That will be in the next SM dex.
"Out manned and out gunned by two Ratling Snipers, the Grey knights called upon the might super dooper, mega hard, invincible totally bad ass Ultramarines for help. After the battle the Ultramarines taught the Grey Knights how to be better warriors and said they could take some Ultramarine scouts as mentors to keep them safe in times of need.
The Grey Knights were so pleased they instantly elevated these scouts to the rank of Grand Master for their sheer awesomeness!!!!!"

And thus Draigo became a Grey Knight.
