>playing at LGS
Lost me there OP, I only play at the LGS if I am hosting demo games.
Probably wouldn't even realize it was ideological, rough if the player tried to get all leftypol on me I'd be out the door
Roll my eyes, then complement their technique.
Shit thread, KYS.
Looks kind of gay but I would destroy his garmy.
Damn, that’s a bright pink, how’d you get it so clean?
Not mine, admittedly. Just kinda trying to gauge things since I haven't had a chance to play in a few years and am kinda worried about coming back to 40k in person.
There's worse shit wrong with 40K than making fun of color schemes
True, I mean I personally wouldn't do something like this for an army theme because I feel like it's basically designed to rage bait people. More just nervous because I've been called a gay in the past based off my army as is.
>How do you react /tg/?
Cool paint job and contrast in tone to the grit and barbwire of the base, but you need to work on shading a bit more to really make the model's colour pop.
Ours didn't seem that way but then again I went during the day on a Saturday. Not even that fussed about the weirdos, so long as they put in the effort hygiene and personal life wise. I'll put up with a fair amount of degeneracy if it means I get to bang femboys.
What I am pissed off about is the codes Astartes CLEARLY states the chapter heraldry AND company colours need to be represented on a marines heraldry. I mean, am I meant to buy that this marines chapter, what? Had a stroke? Didn't read the damn thing?
Puts me right off me stroke I tell you that.
Can you tell me how to find and bang these femboys
Couldn't you just use Grindr?
Not the guy, I have little experience with it, but it's extremely fucking unpleasant. It's like 50% middle aged guys and the remaining 45 is extremely creey dudes who open with a dick pic.
For a bi zoomer like me who's just interested in finding a cute boy my age to cuddle and bang it's extremely off-putting
Nightclubs and goth adjacent gaming groups.
As for the *how* that's between you and your bitch boy.
He is probably a groomer, I would not play with him
Why would I organize to play with someone who uses primaris? I play 4th edition.
I'm honestly surprised there's so few comments about it being Primaris.
Fine by me
Meme armies are nothing new in LGSs. I may roll my eyes but play anyway unless he spergs about his dudes being canon or any other cringe fanfic (like many neckbeards do)
He's already better than 60% of the people in my LGS.
I'd probably compliment them on their paint job because mini people are always fishing for compliments. They're like 3D printer dudes. Honestly gets kind of tiring.
i've cultivated an almost spiritual level of disengagement, so probably the same glossy eyed impassive look i give everything in life
How come /tg/ insists they're the true fans despite not owning models and insist GW will go broke catering to libtards because libtards don't own models? On top of this there is a stream of bait threads about libtard paint schemes, painted on models the libtards are said not to buy.
Why are you playing with a marine fag?
I don’t know what that is and don’t know what that means. I also don’t know what website this is. I just beat someone unconscious with a rock and took their phone.
I would ignore objectives and focus solely on tableing my opponent.
>lol, isnt this colorscheme kinda gay?
Then proceed to destroy his army
refuse to play xur for having a pedo-colored army
What the fuck is pedo-colored?
Apparently those colors. Looked it up. The MAP pedos are using this as their flag. Would explain why trannies are extra pissed at them compared to everyone else
That looks nothing like the trans flag or OP's Marines. The only elements in common are the white stripes and flag shape
Its the pink-light blue-white combo of colors that give people the nonce vibes and why trannies especially seethe at them
Are you gays blind
It's the wrong number of bars, wrong size of bars, and the color scheme looks nothing like it. Vibrant pink and blue vs faded pastel yellow, red and blue
It's literally the transflag + yellow streaks.
you refuse to play to an obscure chaos renegade sub-faction from an RPG supplement?
>How do you react /tg/?
ask for her twitter so i can see her naked
>pic related lives in your country, in your city
Man i love the internet. And to think such a small thing gave it away.
>Every victory or loss, I expand my army with ork units that 'looted' stuff from my opponent.
>Faced Tau, guardsmen, and Necrons
>Battlewagon is a looted Manta
>Deffdread is a looted Sentinel
>New lootaz are getting gauss guns
I'd ask what paints they use so my stormboyz will look true to form.
Expensive tastes but I respect it
now for the twist:
>opponent is a 7/10 nerdy girl
Play with them because I don't have terminal autism?
A krumpin is a krumpin, gork an mork don't care
Ask why they're unpacking 40gay when this is the MESBG group.
>at least it’s fucking painted
>sorry, I don't play against Cawls lore-breaking abominations
Did you do that heart free-hand? Looks good. Let's play.
Silently seethe over the fact that they can paint pink better than I can
Probably groan as loudly and for as long as my lungs can handle then go out of my way to be really rude to him for as long as I'm stuck interacting with him.
I don't think I'd say or do anything that might get me kicked out, but I'd make it extremely obvious that being around him is a chore.
Passive agressive is the best aggressive
Best thing to do in that case is to tilt over the piece of his army you eliminate, obviously not fragile , large or expensive pieces, just the sturdy cheap stuff like marines and boyz and guardsmen and shit. Stop when IT tells you to but just gesture a flicking of the model, dont do it near the model, thats the best way to ruin his model and get a PROMOTION!
Are you a woman?
"Nice Paint scheme and model work, how long did it take? Do you have any tips for painting?"
I dont make the connection. Im not brightest cookie in the jar.
At least its painted.
Ask if they really wanna go through with this because my Shadowkeepers will absolutely ass-rape just about any infantry Marine army off the table by round 3 at the latest
Tell him he brought the wrong case and hope someone else brought some infinity instead.
Total boycott. A harsh warning on first occasion, second time would mean I take something heavy and smash his fake ass pretender marines to little bits.
I just tell him that I'll take the loss and refuse to play against him. I do the same if someone with an Adam's apple shows up to a locals in a dress. They would do the same to me if I revealed my own powerlevel, so why not fight back?
Laugh, and take each model out, one by one.
>forgetting to install CS Source
Typical Gmod Warhammer40K experience
Ah, the second legion on the field!
Whoever painted that had good technique so I can't complain because there's nothing more cancerous in the hobby than grey tides. Paint your armies however you like, just paint them.
>there's nothing more cancerous in the hobby than grey tides
I can think of one thing more cancerous: trannies.
You've been on the internet too long if you think that.
I'm just happy when the guy across the table bothered to paint his models. I absolutely hate playing gays who don't paint their shit. They're always just muppets playing with the newest, coolest, hardest stuff and they don't actually give a fuck about any faction enough to bother painting anything.
So yes, I would happily play against that army just for the change of pace.
>internet tough guy talk
>angry at the latest culture wars boogey man
LOL, OK big man.
Well, yeah, if you were in jail you would indeed have a different set of problems than you do at the moment.
I would play with him, just so that it means he isn't playing with unsupervised kids instead.
Female Space Marines? Cool!
Should have posted the accurate one.
It never stops being funny that being told Nazis are bad is what made people feel personally attacked and finally point out GW's shitty market practices.
Get fucked, you'll buy the dolls anyway like every other worst offence.
That wasn't from the Spanish incident. That was put up during all the BLM shit. The 'The Imperium are not the good guys' statement was from the Spanish incident.
that statement will never not be the most ass backwards retarded shit GW have ever said. OF COURSE the imperium are the good guys. they have always BEEN the good guys. they're the humans, just trying to survive, against a hostile universe that seeks their utter destruction.
and why do i care what a fucking hack writer revisionist commie thinks? when he is clearly wrong and a fucking idiot?
He doesn't say anything new. It has always been the same unless you believe at face value the in-universe propaganda of the codexes about how factions see themselves.
If you thought otherwise, you were wrong.
Nah. I can't find it because the amount of reddit onions vomited into google search results, but GW writers said the opposite, OOC, in white dwarf and various rulebooks over the years.
You can't find it because it doesn't exist. The setting has heroic characters but not benevolent factions.
That's the whole point of a dystopia, FFS.
The other guy's cap at least quoted Priestley by name.
if you have any amount of media literacy, you shouldn't need to hear this from the man himself, but, well...
Not in published book, so none of that is canon. Why even bring it into the thread?
It's the creator of the setting explaining what the original point of it was. Are you serious?
If you're just happier thinking space marines are marvel heroes, say it, and stop pretending you care about what the "official" interpretation is supposed to be.
no. it's a hack writer CURRENT YEAR retconning a setting they've spent a while shitting about in making shit fanfiction to jerk off their lust for homosex gay marines.
like all fucking commies, they cannot actually create, just infest and destroy, burn it down, and then claim it was ALWAYS a pile of ashes and that's how it was when they got there, THEY didn't burn it down!
>a hack writer CURRENT YEAR retconning a setting they've spent a while shitting about in making shit fanfiction
Anon confirmed for not knowing who Priestley is
just leave the schizo secondary to seethe there is no reasoning with someone like that
someone brought up andy clark as if it was a point.
YOu are the gay who posted an unlabelled bunch of horse crap from some other gay, without saying so.
so not only did you move the goalposts, not only did you fucking WHATABOUTism, but you also tried to pretend you weren't, and when i told you to fuck off with your retarded nonsense, you tried the ''hurr durr he didn't recognise this unlabelled sourceless shitpost image, i wonded!''
classic fucking commie retardation. you leftists can't ever engage in good faith on an actual point.
the imperium ARE the good guys. full stop.
Anon, you know that the Imperium is a satire of commies too, right? What do you think the Commissars are based on?
>being this retarded
Do you or do you not know who Priestley is?
>you leftists can't ever engage in good faith on an actual point.
>the imperium ARE the good guys. full stop.
You're fucking delusional and your headcanon goes against the themes of the setting since RT to the last releases. Being the least bad option for humanity doesn't make the Imperium the "good guys", specially since most of their problems are explicitly self-inflicted. It's supposed to be an ongoing tragic distopia with lone people trying their best.
It's nazi party member John Rabe saving chinese civilians from genocidal japanese soldiers, not Luke Skywalker blowing up the Death Star, you fucking imbecile.
40K's core has always been the same since Priestley to Andy Clark above, or BL writers. And if you think this is left wing commie talk, congratulations: it has always been so, and you played yourself for being an illiterate moron with no reading comprehension.
I don't think it really lands. So space marines can't be heroic because they're "brutal", but they're still undeniably less brutal than the antagonist factions. Making the emperor a mystery doesn't increase the irony, it makes it a mystery how ironic it could be. The emperor could be dead and false, but he could also be noble and alive, and that doesn't increase the misery displayed either way because we have no way of knowing.
The whole thing is very Rorschach. It's just not very good at convincing people that their reading on it is wrong.
At best, they're necessary pawns of a scheme that has no real driver at helm and has only perpetuated itself through sheer bureaucratic inertia.
Which is long ways away from making them "heroes" in any sense other than "mindless killing machines that happened to be aimed in roughly the right direction 10,000 years ago"
The dudes who show up to stop other dudes from murder-raping you have a pretty high waterline for being undoubtedly evil. No matter how misguided or theologically messed up they are, people would prefer the inquisitor over the witches, provided that the witches are actually real and will kill you all.
The setting would need a total rewrite if they wanted it to not be up to question. Aliens are real, they'll kill you all. Chaos is real, it will kill you all. Space marines are real, and probably wont. You can't walk that back.
>Space marines are real, and probably wont
During the big E's crusade the space marines killed an awful lot of humans. In the 41st millennium, space marines are not accountable to anyone except their own chapter, and there are plenty of cases in the books of space marines killing or maiming humans who aren't respectful, or sometimes those who are merely in the way. Even when not deliberately targeting humans, miscommunications happen, collateral damage happens. Remember that space marines are 12 year olds given steroids, power armor, and guns, and told it's their divine mission to kill.
killed an awful lot of heretics and traitors and xenos and chaos curroptued fallen non-humans.
your moral relativism and 'everything is subjective' revisionism doesn't work in a setting with objective outright EVILS. you fucking retarded communist
The whole point of Chaos is that it's a mirror of humanity's worst impulses. Chaos isn't a foreign invader, it's the Imperium reflected back at itself. Chaos Space Marines are exaggerated parodies of Space Marines
A corrupt, monstrous inquisitor is still better than the witches. The only way to make the imperium obviously, overtly evil would be to make them worse. Not just 'not great", but actively worse than the enemy at the games. They have to kill more civilians, burn more planets, and condemn more souls than the enemy does, and they don't.
That, and everything else's. 1 billion zillion rats reflected in the warp could summon up something nasty, and that's also going to show up and start kicking down the doors. Humanity didn't make slaanesh, and they've also gotta deal with it.
80's, 90's and 00's, Marines were the ultimate good guys according to the writers. The Imperium ruled, and the Emps just wanted to dude rock all day.
Anon what does the intro blurb in the 3rd edition rulebook say about "the cruelest and bloodiest regime imaginable"? The Imperium was never good, just the least bad option in a galaxy of things hellbent on humanity's extinction.
you're a retard. that is clearly on the planets that the fighting happens on. the imperium has a berjillionty inhabited systems you retard. the fighting and game, both fluff and crunch shit, happens on the places where everything has gone to shit. they don't have stories about the 50 thousand agri worlds where nothing has ever happened for a thousand years or more that feeds every ONE hive world that is a deHispanicable pustule of corruption and villiany.
there's no imperial guard regiments raised from any of the innumerable rocks where humans number in the mere millions.
the entire point of the settings grimdarkness, is that is what the human factions are defending the rest of the human shit from. otherwise there's no fucking point you fucking commie retard fuckwit.
corpse starch eating kriegers only make sense when they are the absolute misery of sacrifice and honour and suffering that shields other worlds that have never known the touch of war or chaos.
if the imperium was a 100 % total fucking crapsack it would NOT exist at all.
the imperium IS the good guys, because they succeed and live DESPITE all the godawful shit trying to bring them down, the horrors of xenos and chaos that try and bring whole subsectors down in flames.
you're literally a fucking retard who does not grasp the concept of the sheer scale of a fucking stellar empire.
it is clear that the humans ARE the good guys, and therefore they ARE the setting protagonists. you filthy xenophile traitor. fucking heretek
>i have no actual arguement so i must shitpost instead
i accept your concession you pathetic fucking loser.
What? It's been described as a necessary evil since the earliest books. The most awful, soul-crushing, repressive tyranny mankind has ever know, that sort of thing.
And the "necessary" part might have gone after the emperor died and it rapidly became something even worse and more insane.
You are missing the point dude, the funny thing is a game company that pushes a game setting that includes fasicm, genocide, rape, murder, racism, sexism and mass slavery. trying to suddenly appear LGBT and super woke with that statement.
You are actually clinically retarded if you think a setting that features bad things is an endorsement of said bad things
that isn't what happened. they called imperium fans nazis and told us the imperium were the bad guys and are nazis.
which is fail and retarded and wrong and shows GW are full of fart sniffing filthy fucking commies.
if the opponent is ugly I leave, if they aren't ugly I stay
>How do you react
Crush the freak. Both in game and in real life.
I think it's fine. It's some kind of "fuck you" flavored sarcasm
I have a chud in my usual group, honestly its not the boogeyman /pol makes it out to be. We never talked about politics at or off the table, and while I dont see him as a woman if he's happier rolling dice with his skirt and tits why should I care?
Some of you people sound like cringe Reddit atheists spilling spaghetti everywhere irl.
You are part of the problem
I have no problem whatsoever dude, I just wanna play the game not get a hook up lol. There's plenty weird or ugly people, sissy boy at least showers and paints his shit.
He will make you out to be the bad guy when you will no longer be needed (he finds "better" friends) you will feel like a dumbass then
He's shadow-boxing with the chuds in his head.
>be Tyranid player, Hivefleet Behemoth
It dont matter, its all biomass to me
>How do you react /tg/?
Wonder why he thinks he can use games workshop stuff in the game.
Steamroll 'cuz phobos suck ass
I projectile vomit directly onto the table
does that mean OP is a transphobos
Comes with a painted army? He clearly doesn’t belong there.
My only pet peeve is the heart, I dont care about the colors.
Screen them out with my grot rush of over six gorillion pale-skinned gretchin units
I ask how they did the dirt on the boots cause that's actually quite nice
>my OC DONUT STEEL chapter is fine, but this one isn't because...
>my LGS is just 30-50 year old dads in factory and labour jobs
feels good bro
>LGS (Lesbians Gays Shop)
>someone uses pink
>OP, also a gay, is shocked
Nice chud marines.
That's not even what they say on their reddit post and I don't think it's really supporting fascism to say that for most citizens of the imperium, they would view it as better to be a slave to fascist state than to be scarified to chaos, slaughtered by orks, or eaten by tyranids. We are fortunate to not live in those times and that's the real point of the 3rd edition rulebook blurb.
It comes with a warning too you know:
>It is a universe you can live in today - if you dare - for this is a dark and terrible era where you will find little comfort or hope. If you want to take part in the adventure then prepare yourself now. Forget the power of technology, science and common humanity. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for there is no peace amongst the tars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter and the laughter of thirsting gods.
in other words
>you can mentally live in a hellscape like this today if you reject technology, science, common humanity, progress, and understanding.
40k began as edgy satire of british right wing policies of the time, but like all satire:
>Any community that gets its laughs by pretending to be idiots will eventually be flooded by actual idiots who mistakenly believe that they're in good company.
It was made in contrast to the optimistic sci-fi at the time.
Subversion bros are always like "let's make the coolest looking thing ever and hope everyone thinks it sucks", and then they get shocked when everyone thinks it's cool. Imagine telling someone the end result of right wing policies is a super metal space crusade and then getting shocked enlistment shoots up.
The original writers were just throwing in cool things that might fit. The idea was meant to have different factions of the imperium, some more or less crazy/ignorant than others, and the further out systems were less under imperial control like far flung Roman provinces, so could or had to run autonomously for long periods of time, for better or worse for the people there.
It's also a product I think of the game and most of the lore only really showing the "cool" bits. There aren't any books about factory world serfs asking for days off or better pay and being made into a servitor as punishment. They don't show a hive worlder living in fear that someone higher-up find their tithe lacking. They don't tell stories about planetary defense forces being executed for failing to stop an insurrection. Only some of the books even touch on how for an ordinary human who grew up on stories about the emperor's angels of death, witnessing space marine drop pods raining from the sky is a terrifying sight heralding doom. In the grim darkness of the future, there is only war, and war really sucks.
40k originally was meant to be approached more as a part of its history, like a fictional historical setting, but with a load of humour and silliness in, mixing high and low writing.
The later writers became much more pro faced and lost both.
Ew, you use reivers?
> Emperor's Children are at it again!
I wouldn't even have recognized it as chud colours, but it seems like an appropriate colour scheme for violent, censorious fascists.
Based on the effort put into the paintjob I'd assume they're just having a laugh. The hobby has far more mental retards who fingerpaint their models.
>opponent rolls up with pic related as army
>How do you react /tg/?
Vive la trans!
"Cool paintjob but did you forget we are playing Infinity today? Here, you can borrow my spare Military Orders army."
Its only for rich white people, and everyone knows it.
PURGE THE UNCLEAN!!!!!
I legit thought it was a chaos marine from the color scheme which makes sense
Roll my eyes and shut down any talk of politics.
