    For around 5 years anyone who mentioned squats on the GW forums were perma'd
    That seems rather silly.

    A Squat is a space dwarf. They used to exist in Warhammer 40k (with a planned Codex mentioned in the Second Edition Codex: Imperial Guard) until somebody got embarrassed and decided their homeworld would be eaten by Tyranids. It is popularly believed that Games Workshop sends out teams to assassinate, kidnap, or otherwise inconvenience anyone who dares mention them. One possibility is that the Squat nobles demanded that some impossible-to-acquire item be put in each of their rooms, and thus locked up the entire working class of Squats, and the whole race starved. Another theory is that Creed is using his tactical genius to hide them until the final showdown with Chaos. It's kinda likely that, what with their "We haz teknologeez!", being Dwarves, drinking, not being assholes, and generally not being depressing, Games Workshop decided they weren't grimdark enuff, and subsequently fed them to the Tyranids (who exist to eat Games Workshop's mistakes, obviously), and at the same time branding the mention of <censored for heresy> as heresy. Heresy - the perfect excuse to retcon!
    i'd love if someone from GW visited me C:

    Just got Blood Reaver, which follows the Night Lords. Would anyone recommend other books? I also saw Victories of the Space Marines, The Word Bearers and Space Wolves Omnibus, and the Ciaphas Cain and Horus Heresy series.

    Alright guys.

    What's your favourite Chaos god, if any.

    Mine is Nurgle, without a doubt. Mainly because he's not a crazy god that wants to kill everything.
    He actually cares about his followers, which is nice, even though he recruits with an excruciatingly painful plague.

    I like Nurgle most, too.
    because he's a bro.
    and because his minions look coolest. (well, not really because Sound Marines and Khorne Berserkers, but their gods are fags)

    If anyone has some painted Plague marines, please post them in a pose where they hold their gun. Make it so that he faces one side, but that you can still see his chest and face clearly.

    I've been a raptor, dropped on and attacked a devastator with an HB, he just took his sweet time setting up his gun while my power axe was smacking him and then he shot me point blank until I died. The end.

    At that point I yell "NO, YOU CAN'T SHOOT IN MY ASSAULT PHASE!"

    I have good results fighting assault here, if you can run away a bit it's basically over for them because you can repeatedly force-feed them plasma, roll back and do it again, they can never reach you.

    Dash away from them when they start to land, shoot them.

    Tacticals can counter with bolter, storm bolter, melta, devs can counter with plasma canon, the foot stomp MIGHT save you if you have a lot of team mates near by but eh

    Edited:

    It's not grimdark why they got rid of dorfs, they did it because they wanted 40k to be more different than fantasy.

    Yeah but most of the time they jump around (and on) you and then beat you to death with a chainsword.

    This is digi-melta. All of the craftsmanship is of the best quality. It menaces with spikes of ceramite. On the object there is an image of Imhotep and Roboute Guilliman. It represents the kidnapping of Roboute Guilliman by Imhotep during M41.

    The real reason that squats got extinct is because they had a cat couple at the start of their fortress-monastery.

    or
    This is a powerfist, All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. On the object there is an image of dwarves and tyranids. the dwarf is being retconned. The tyranid is laughing. It relates to the events of hive fleet kraken destroying all squats during M3?

    hell yeah just managed to get a copy of Aurelian gold edition for 41

    I also managed to spectate my first table top game and, 2 pairs of two guys, one highly competitve pair playing blood angles and chaos and the other a pair of teenagers who were a hell of a lot more fun to watch, both of them seemed to hate to go against nid players, so:

    somebody talk to me about tyranids table top wise, what units are worth taking in 1500+ games? what biomorphs are worth taking on said useful creatures?

    I just had to do one last one.

    Engraved on the wall is a finely-designed image of Matt Ward the Human and Roboute Guilliman of the Ultramarines the space marine by Dan Abnett. Matt Ward is raping Roboute Guilliman of the Ultramarines. Roboute Guilliman of the Ultramarines is screaming. The artwork relates to the creation of 5th edition codex: space marine and the ascention of Roboute Guilliman to spiritual liege in the Games Workshop headquarters by Matt Ward in 2011.

    I don't give a fuck what the new 'nid codex says, Ghazkull killed the Squats. Period.

    Also, against that 'nid player in the 2000 point game, we took the leaked 6th edition rules for a test-drive once again. I won, but barely. At first it started as a ROLF-stomp, with me rolling box-cars TWICE IN A ROW with the Shokk Attack Gun, taking out his Tyrant and a butt-ton of gaunts in my first turn, and the second shot scattered but still managed to maggick away a pesky Zoanthrope. What fucked me was my own Killa Kanz, apparantley in the leaked 6th edition rules (assuming they're legit at all), vehicle explosions just deal automatic wounds within D6" (I personally think this rule is horse-shit) of the unit that blew up, and causes automatic penetrations ("critical hit"), so he killed one Kan with a Mawlock and the explosion from that one killed 20 Boyz, my Big Mek, the last of my 14 Lootas (most of which were eaten by the Mawlock), and the explosion from THAT Kan blew up the one right next to it which proceeded to kill the rest of the Boyz in that squad while only dealing 2 wounds to the Mawlock.

    Which leaked rules? Because the leaked rule set with evasion has been proven fake.

    How large is an Emperor-class battleship again? I've looked all over and all I've received is rough estimation and speculation. They're ranging from 12km to 50km.

    I'm obviously hoping for the latter.
