Inhabitants of world 140-15, hear me! I am Captain Khitas Frome, commander of the Blood Angels 6th company. I come here, to this world you have mistakenly named Terra, leading the 140th Expeditionary Fleet in the name of the Imperium of Man. Our purpose is to invite you to join in the great unification of our race under the guidance of the Emperor of Mankind, beloved by all. While you may have believed yourself alone in this universe, countless other human worlds exist, all of which will one day share in the brotherhood and protection of the Imperium. If you accept the generous protection of the Emperor, we will share with your primitive world the technology necessary to uplift yourselves up to the standards of the Imperium and defend yourselves from the vile xenos that seek to eradicate our race. If you do not, we shall take action to liberate you from your ignorance.
In exactly one of your weeks, we shall send down a delegation to discuss terms of integration with your planetary leaders. We have confidence you will make the correct decision.
The imperium doesn't speak Latin, high gothic is what you get if you take all the modern languages blend them together and let it ferment for 10-20 thousand years. Low gothic is future Ebonics.
That's why they lace it with anti venom when sharing with unaugmented humans. Given, they'd probably still pass out after a single mug of the stuff, but this way they at least wake up the next day.
>going with space retards
Admittedly "Space retards" describes like, half the chapters.
Seriously though, one chance at this and you don't want to go with the one chapter that makes good decisions only?
So, hey, just because some of our faggot leaders refuse doesn't mean that some of us aren't interested in joining.
Just an FYI.
No to the Smurfs. We don't want to get caught up in some heretical Imperium Secondus bullshit.
Are correct. Space Vikings will fight to protect us. Never forget the first war for Armageddon
>The Blood Angels discovers that due to some warpfuckery everything that our planet writes according to the 40k canon is true
>Its some kind of planetary TULPA
>They get shitmad because some britbongs wrote how their primarch got pwned and it happened in reality
>They ultraexterminatus the planet...only to realize that from now on their future isn't written and it is thus uncertain...do they have now freedom or have they doomed themselves?
Shouldn't this take place in 30K considering the whole "expedition fleet" thing was done during the Great Crusade? If so, they're not going to like how we depict Horus' character development or the future of the Imperium.
Doesn't that mean we can be in a position to send ourselves to rulers of the Imperium because we can just write the emperors dead? Hell we could even write we ARE the rulers of the Imperium if that happens.
Can we please kill all non-whites on this planet and THEN join your struggle, Mr Space Marine sir? They're basically retarded low IQ butthurt xenos and have no use, except Asians, which I guess would be OK
As a First Legion fanboy
Fuck no. We'll be in the middle of a shitstorm when Luther falls and suddenly the Dark Angels start reevaluating all their worlds.
Let us be annexed by the Ultramarines or White Scars.
This was the pretty much the backstory for our regiment in Only War.
Earth was a lost world. The stories of the Annunaki are distant memories of a visit by an exploration crew soon after the Horus Heresy. The stories of the fae were visits from Eldar. The aliens of Roswell (and other "grey" sightings) were Tau.
The Imperium finally finds the Earth and begins the process of assimilation. The Ecclesiarchy declares the Judeo-Christian/Islam religions are echoes of Emperor worship and purge those who refuse to see the "Truth".
The regiment was based on the 172nd Mountain infantry battalion (part of the larger 86th Brigade), who (for whatever reason) is chosen to be the first Astra Militarum tithe for the world.
Every day Americans who find themselves in the horror of the callous Munitorum and combat with the xenos.
You know, that picture makes me really sad. I don't know when those were made, but I imagine they were before the HH books were made. It allowed you to have your own imagination about what the Primarchs might have looked like, instead of what we got.
Look at Lorgar. Doesn't that look like a real leader for the Word Bearers? A fiery and powerful theist who has given himself and his legion to the mastery of dark gods that most can barely comprehend. Compare it to the FW model.
>terra is somewhere else
>it's actually 40k
>earth is just a backwater shithole world nobody fucking cared about
>Ecclesiarchy declares Judeo-Christion/Islam as echoes of the Imperial Truth
>Islam as echoes of Emperor worship
DEATH TO THE ECCLESIARCHY
DEATH TO THE FALSE EMPEROR
You do know that Islam is really just a continuation of the JudeoChristian religion, right? Islam recognizes Abraham and Jesus as prophets. They just also believe Mohammed was the latest (and last) one. (And that Christianity screwed up with the whole "son of god" thing...he was just a prophet)
Of course, the Bahai is a yet further continuation of the tradition, where there was a 4th prophet named Bahallula (probably didn't spell that right).
We just need the Ecclesiarchy to come along and convince everyone there is a 5th prophet...
>Captcha...a fruit smoothie is not a fucking milkshake.
>>No no no, these books are all wrong. The Emperor's Angels of Death are all women!
