    Maybe there will be two settings: Grimdark, and what we've seen.

    Edited:

    Or you can just lower the brightness by a whole fucking lot.

    Weak against shields/aggro armor, strong against unprotected flesh, kills on one shot to the top of the head regardless of health.
    Can't you say this about just about any pistol? Even in real life?

    I hope so, otherwise I'm not buying it.
    No grimdark, no deal.

    The palette is to bright, and the models border on cell-shading. Proportions are slightly offset, and the characters almost "bounce" when they move. (Best example is the guardsmen taking damage animation from the trailer, it doesn't look realistic at all) (Daemon of Nurgle looks comical, as do the dreadnoughts and servitors. Narrator at the beginning of the Imperium trailer looks like he's from a comic book)

    This is what Space Marine did well. It captured the true feeling of the game with its single-player, and the art style was dark, gritty and realistic.
    I can see your points now, especially on the animations, but being a MMO I wouldn't hold my expectations much high in terms of graphics and all that stuff, maybe they could probably change some things to give it a more 'dark' atmosphere, but you've to also keep in mind not everything is as dark, like natural environments. There's still environments that fit well enough the 'oldiness' or 'darkiness' of an imperial world, like that complex where the daemon of Nurgle is as an example.

    Certainly there's room for improvement, but it's not that bad. And we can hope they improve that.

    Edited:

    That's of course holding the game is a MMO and MMOs aren't the best thing out there graphically. SM as a single player game is a complete different story.

    Gonna get Dark Millenium either way, even if it isn't as GRIMDARK as 40k should be.

    That's not stock, stock shootas have drum clips, but yeah you can convert anything really.

    Heck some of them do the ol' chaos thing where you just have bullets hanging down.

    The boost in power only comes from all of them being thoroughly convinced that something should work in a certain way. In essence, red wuns only go faster because ALL orks KNOW it to be true.

    Hello people i really the miniatures of warhamer 40k so i bought a kit of assault terminators and started tweaking around some, what would be the best way to paint them? i think maybe black and white like those black templars but something reverse?

    people keep talkign about drybrushing and highlighting, what does that mean and are there videos on how to best do this?

    this one came out pretty cool i think

    dakka dakka has the best guides on how to paint, also I like the posing you did. Make the colors what you think looks the coolest. Check the Lexicanum for some pictures on all the different chapters of space marines for some inspiration.

    That wouldn't fit with the lore though, Rippers are supposed to be some of the last units to enter the field.

    Yes they could do that but:

    1. They are orks they are not allowed to use smart tactics.
    2. GW will NEVER advance the plot.

    Well obviously but I'm just saying that Orks have the potential to crush everyone else, they're just not going to realize it because that's no fun.

    Marines view camouflage as the "color of cowardice" and as such always go into battle with their armor in full color, even their reconnaissance and stealth units. The only sneaky space marine force would be the Raven Guard, they actually have a special character that will let the whole army be sneaky and he is awesome.

    Some older versions of warhammer actually had some marines use camo, but that was phased out as the franchise went on.

    This isn't to say that marines in camo totaly fliping awesome.

    Except it isn't real life, nor fluff; and that's the point. Sperging about how awesome this retcon (an entire race)is while that retcon (one weapon) has destroyed 40K forever is a tad insipid, and it was not by accident relic adopted the mechanics they did.

    Reasonable Marines are a reasonable bet of explaining the need for camouflage. And sanity.

    Find a hobby knife and start shaving off some of the extra plastic from the spues off. Then, basecoat it, and paint it, but make sure your paint doesn't go on too thick.

    Potentially yes, but it's a lot of work if it is a troll. The format is in-keeping with the 5E Rulebook and it mentions lots of recent updates, like Necron Command Barges. Plus, if it's true...my god if it's true.

    Hey man, before they jacked the price up you couldn't go wrong spending $60 to get a Warboss, 5 Nobz, 20 Boyz and 3 Deff Koptaz, plus alot of SPESS MEHREENZ to sell on eBay. (probably why they jacked the price up if you ask me)

    I still have a horrible feeling that they're aiming for T with DMO / one version (so they make that one censored). Look at the nurgle demon, it has metal on it where organs should be hanging out.

    Also am I the only one that though that Space Marine wasn't grimdark enough? And wasn't really even close?
