But, that's not a reason to seek him out and burn down his house and car (No, merely taking off his beard would suffice ) really.
We should rather do that to Achaylus72's house ...

Peace.
Yeah sure why not, go ahead burn my apartment down, and make me and three other families homeless while you are at it, what a fucktard. Or at least do it at night just to make sure you burn us to death.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

Maybe I'm missing the point, but should you be complaining aput fluff you actually now about? I mean, forgive my rudeness, but complianing about something you're not even sure of weakens your overall arguement and makes you look foolish.

Forgive my crude method, but do you see what I mean? Your argument is made up of poorly supported assumptions, heavily biased by your own opinion. I have no problem with you having such an opinion, but it cannot and should not be used as the solid basis for an argument, I feel. Because you feel Ward writes "shitty" fluff does not mean that everyone does, but still you make the logic jump that the whole community does not ask for this "shitty" Ward fluff.

Sorry to pick apart what is really only a short post quite so violently. No personal offence is meant, of course.

it would if it was all wrong, but thats 1 piece of fluff, hell its not like I'm listing 600 pieces of fluff incorrectly like what people regularly do but don't get a second glance about it.

in fact its allot more foolish that people have spent so much time complaining about me posting 1 bit of ill-remembered fluff instead of complaining about all the piss poor fluff already written by a codex writer who shouldn't be writing stupid fluff, and a company who approves of such pathetic fluff

as I said before, 1 set of rules for some of us, another for the rest of you

oh yeah, you'll have eldar allying with necrons and tyranids to fight squat remnants, while inscribing ultrmarine symbols on there faces in honor of the greatest chapter to exist and being such awesome opponents, hell ward would probably have them worshipping daedric gods with a farseer named shepard while on an adventure to destroy a ring of power and fighting against an empire to destroy a giant grey ball in space.

Pretty much true. At the current situation the Eldar are pretty much relegated to being punching bags for a lot of fluff.

Also its quite likely that Ward could be writing Eldar.

Think about it. Eldar are rumoured to be coming around the same time as Tau, Chaos and themselves.

Common rumours indicate that Kelly is writing Tau and that Cruddace is apparently writing Chaos. This means that Ward is the only one left to write Eldar.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

I'm not a fan of Wards fluff at all, but ruleswise he's not *too* bad. Some of the Grey Knight stuff was a bit dodgy in places, but then they *are* supposed to be the elites of the Imperium.

If there was a joint book where Ward did the rules side and someone else did the fluff side I reckon it'd be good, but a lot of the fluff i've read of his seems to end up being Wardhammer 40k, rather than expanding on any previously established background. Case in point being the new 'crons - I can kind of understand veering a bit away from the whole soulless killing machine concept, but then throwing in a bit about how, deep down, every Necron longs to be flesh again? Bit silly if you ask me.
