Oooh, Matt Ward hate. Can I join in?



In all seriousness I really do hope this 'spoiler' is wrong. I'm not the biggest fan of the grey knights, but they deserve better than this shit.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

Wait...so they killed off Mortarion? or does having a name carved into your heart not mean death in the Warp?

so this grey knight has the chance to crush the hart of a heretic primarch, devour its sould, yet he comes in a poetic mood and doodles a name in the hart, pretty strange,
this being said I do not think this differs much from the sanguinator or the 13th SW,
I have no problem with a very powerfull empirium ally compared to all the super powerfull, uber mighty demons and gods affiliated to chaos, it is now 1000000-4 for chaos

*facepalm* Dear lord what is Ward going to do next? Start writing about Black Templars going into a crusade into the EoT, strangling Khorne with his own genitals and doing purple nurples on Slaanesh?!?

My advice to you is to get married, if you have a good wife you'll be happy; if you get a bad one you'll become a philosopher.

In the grim darkness of the future the economy has even hit daemons, The Changeling is working at White Castle and Skarbrand is giving head in the alley next to Fateweaver's.You ever receive fellatio from a rhyming demon? It's a bad scene man.

Sticking your junk into a fang-filled mouth that breathes fire doesn't strike me as particularly smart.
Which is why that option should be available to any willing to take it.

In fact, there should be fang-faced, firebreathing demons on every streetcorner offering to pay 100 dollars to give BJ's. The gene pool would be vastly better off without anyone incapable of thinking it through.

So, I understand that people are upset by Draigo moving through the warp without damage, but no one has mentioned the curse that M'Kar (this guy gets around doesn't he):

"If you set foot on this world again you shall walk with damnation for 10,000 years."

So M'Kar pulls him into the warp after putting that curse on him during their first meeting. Sounds to me like he's walking around due to the good graces of M'Kar.

As for what he did by himself in the warp, thats a stretch, but how he got there is (somewhat) understandable.

And GrimSkul Slaanesh would LOVE people to show up and give him purple nurples on a regular basis.

Same. They ruined my favorite codex and destroyed the adversity of it so that kids could get into the game or some shit... Now, so that they don't scare the shit out of the little children, there has to be some good thats just as power as Jesus Christ or else it doesn't sit well with them and their parents.

Graham McNeill is good at this. All it takes is the poke from the "shard of Erebus" or some other random ass shit and Chaos shall be defeated.

There are a lot of different 'facts' about the Warp, from a lot of different sources. When ships move through the Warp, they have the Gellar Field or they get torn apart. Right, ok, got it. But an Ork fleet can plunge into the Eye of Terror, disembark, and just start running around wrecking shit. And even though it's this writhing sea of insanity, with colors you can't describe and gibbering monsters and all kinds of other Lovecraftian nastiness, there are still planets there. Planets where gravity is reversed and blood rains from the sky and even MORE nastiness, to be sure, but planets nonetheless. There is STILL order and form in the Warp, despite what everyone says.

When it comes to the Warp, you really gotta throw out all the rules. Isn't that the whole point of Chaos? Maybe that's why Supreme Grandmaster or whoever can walk around without getting messed up. Or maybe it IS the Emperor, protecting a favored soul or something suitably inspirational. Regardless, the idea doesn't bother me that much, and I don't feel like it contradicts that fluff in a significant way.

What DOES horribly contradict the rest of the storyline, is the whole 'carved a name in the heart of a primarch' part. While I suppose it is possible that the greatest Grey Knight of all time, imbued with some kind of special-awesome Will of the Emperor-ness might be able to rival a Primarch, that character would be way too overpowered to be a part of the 40k tabletop game. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've always operated under the assumption that the Primarchs would be way too overpowered to ever place in the game (even if GW wanted to)

"In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war, an eternity of slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods. I'm telling you man, this is a really shitty time to be alive." -Primarch Stan Wolkowski, Sons of Stan

Again it doesn't say that Draigo took Mortarion down on his own, for all we know he had hundreds of GK with him, it merely states that he carved his predecessor's name into the Daemon Primarch's heart (because Mortarion was his predecessor's killer). We know the corporeal form of a daemon remains in the real space once the daemon itself has been banished, one example being the severed head of Voldorius, so really it's not that ridiculous.
