Each codex has fluff that doesn't feel right whether it be great or terrible and cheesy.

Throw some here!

I'll start:

Codex Space Wolves 5th Edition:

Awesome moment: The Ecclesiarchy come to Fenris.

The Ecclesiarchy come to Fenris having heard of pagan worship. They get battered and think better of messing with the Space Wolves.

Cheese Sauce: Svengar the Horny.

Svengar the Red. Champion of the Space Wolves. Makes a pass at a woman, realises it's not a person at all and is never seen again (presumanbly killed but possibly decided to hide in shame).

That is in no way dodgy. Blood Angels who fight along side necrons, that is dodgy, but that's just the wolves being the wolves.

Although, the only reason I wouldn't consider it crazy behavior is because it is the wolves, who are just crazy anyway.

Xenology. Tyranid genetics.

A pretty good story, though, it's great to see the explored corners of the 40Kverse of the frontlines. Well worth a look otherwise.

It's not so much that the Blood Angels are fighting alongside the Necrons it's that they have stopped trying to kill each other while they deal with a massive cockroach problem. As soon as Rentokil have finished they will get back to knocking the granny out of each other.

No way was Horus that awesome. More likely they made him warmaster so that he could give orders and wouldn't cry and the rest of the Primarch's got on with the crusade!

Most everything pertaining to Marneus Calgar. You know what I'm talking about.

Heck, everything that Matt Ward has written thus far, quite frankly.

Like him single-handedly defeating the Avatar of Khaine when Fulgrim, a freakin' primarch, needed to trick it with a daemon blade to accomplish the same feat.

The emperor whooping the void dragon and somehow transporting and imprisoning it on mars all while warp storms are supposedly rampant in and around the sol system.

In Legion when Alpharius (Omegon?) gets wounded by a Lucifer Black, a regular human, in single combat.

And he would have only needed to get to Mars, not the Ultima Segmentum so he wouldn't have needed to have used the Warp anyway.
If he was taking the Void Dragon to Baal there may have been a problem but a short hop to mars, no probs!

first:Lucifers were highly trained soldiers, experts in many combat arts, second:he was fighting at least 7 at the same time, third: it was not a Primarch - read Legion again and you will find that there was at least one situation where mortals thought that they face Primarch but it was just some bigger SM pretending being Alpharius.

Obviously you've not read Legion in a while because at the end the leader of the Lucifer Blacks goes one on one with Alpharius, the Primarch even comments on how skillful the soldier is before he attacks back and rips the human apart.

Yeah, that's the fight I was talking about. Considering that in Flight of the Eisenstein Rogal Dorn was able to move so fast that he was just a blur even to an astartes, a vanilla mortal shouldn't have come even close to touching Alpharius. And the Blacks weren't that tough. John Grammaticus was able to take one out unarmed and, granted he had many lifetimes worth of experience, he was described as a guy who seemed a bit past his physical prime where the Blacks all seemed to be at their peak.

As Baron said it did not state when he did it, also how long it would of taken him. So even if there was warp storms and it would of taken yrs to get there, if he was powerful enough to whoop his butt then surely it would not matter if it took him five minutes or five yrs....

The csm codex where the corsairs take the SW cruiser. And the Sw's decide, this battle is too tough, we are joining chaos. Oh , and depleted deuterium bullets. Woo hoo, heavy water.
