>Souls style 40k game where you play as an Eldar
lolno, give me Bayonetta: Banshee Edition pls
>Not wanting platinum or capcom to do an Emperor's Children game.
Banshees just scream a lot, their style wouldn't be like Bayonetta, not enough flare. A Lilith game on the other hand would be perfect for that. Plus it can contain uplifting messages to children to not use performance enhancing drugs.
You are right, DEldar would fit that much better.
You pretty much do play a Space Marine, he just looks like a Tau. The MC is a shit wrecking machine to the degree that in the novelization they hand-waved it a little by saying that Chaos was lending him power in an effort to corrupt him.
>Space Marine style game where you play as a Canoness
make it so
no Crazy game featuring harlequins
>we shouldn't take inspiration from the best blade combat in all of gaming
>playing as a
hereticinfiltrating an entire space marine chapter
>hear FOR THE EMPEROR everywhere
>bolter shells exploding around you
I find this idea fascinating just because things are so deadly in this universe.
This right here.
Fluff wise Eldar are supposed to crash headfirst into the uncanny valley for humans, since they're supposed to look similar to humans but with every dimension being ever so slightly 'off' that makes the observer queasy.
I'd bring falcons all over her Eldanesh, if you know what I mean.
Which is stupid in itself since Tau doesn't have any connection with the Warp and as DoW shown, any attempts of communication to the Tau by Chaos will just be interpreted by the Tau as static noises.
>any attempts of communication to the Tau by Chaos will just be interpreted by the Tau as static noises
I thought that was pretty stupid, though. He can talk to the godamn Necron with his warp fuckery
and then gets BTFO, but the Tau is just completely incompatible? Wouldn't Eliphas know/sense that?
>not wanting a cuhrayzee platinum game with a sister of battle
Eldar move so fast that they perceive other races as moving in slow motion.
So I gotta go with this guy>>323579216 that Eldar is playing out a rape fantasy she has with Monkeigh. It's kind of like how white girls want to get BLACKED.
>playing like a drunken man wading through neck high water
Fuck off Soul's drone.
And the absolute champion of cancer
>it needs a MMO
But there is. It's just iOS.
Because the entire setting of HH is nowhere near as fluffed out as 40k is, and there is shit you have to do to not contradict with the shit that comes next. HH has huge gaping voids in it's lore.
They're also sexier.
>alien looking eldars look sexier than human looking eldars
Why does god keep punishing me with weird taste?
40k MMO would be great thou. Dark Millenium looked great till they dropped it (then that shitty rumour Bioware had got the license, which then switched to Space Marine, entire thing was bullshit).
Eternal Crusade looks like a bigger player count Space Marine MP. Which I don't think is too bad, but it's gotten a lot better since it first was playable.
Agreed. All these souls faggots just want the same game with different skins on them
Shadow of Mordor style game where you play as DA ORKZ!
>it's a human-looking eldar pic
I actually feel relief every time this happens.
>MGR paced exploration game set in 40k universe
>Start as imperial guard

>Kill a high value target = move up a rank
>Necrons, Tyranids, Chaos, Adeptus Astartes fightable and playable
Well the 40k comics always portrayed them as Not!Humans with pointy ears.
>Not siding with Horus
Explain yourselves cucks.
>mfw their armors are based on rank and not sex
>you could have a male eldar with boobarmor and a female eldar reaper
Why you do this GW?
Well, no. Those are Wyches, which are all female iirc. Howling Banshees are the ones which can be either but are mostly women.
I love 40k but god damn I wish their were more grey areas in the universe.
I just can't be some neutral badass who has a Fellowship of the Ring sort of team from all the good races to fight Chaos. I mean fuck, if Empire/Imperials saw me fighting against chaos with a Eldar I'd be shot.
>No game were you play as a harlequin and tear up some demons will laughing like a mad man
>No game set in the siege of Terra with you fighting and killing your sworn brothers in a murderous, holy rage
The masked one kills the other, then takes her mask off and reveals herself to be a captured Sister of Battle, right? I'm pretty sure I'm remembering it right.
>Not on the side the greatest primarch
Actually I don't. I'm not full on fan but most of the lore I read in /v/ and /tg/ and on the off-side /co/ is just Space Marine and hate for anything else or Imperials. None of the smaller sects or stories.
But that's exactly what they do. BL admitted they go through DA to look for artists to hire. Essentially on the cheap. It's why you get total dross sometimes cause nobody puts effort into it. Last good art I can remember was Shield of Baal campaign and Harlequin codex.
Can't remember either.
you played as a damn grunt in the tau instead of battlesuits making it dull
SM's eldar orks would have been so much better
>crazy ork dakkas
>tripping balls as the eldar with dreams
The last SM game was GOAT and has a new mmo on the way
Knock yourself out.
We already have a board for that, its called /tg/.
>not liking the retardedly over the top grimdarkn awesomeness that is 40k
I think the idea is an action/rpg like game where you start out weak with weak gear & an undefined path that makes the game challenging. Unlike most action games where you just spam X while running from point A to point B & never looking back.
following a faggot which hides from the world
I would rather ride with khan till the end of time
>Souls style 40k game where you play as an Eldar
I think you mean CUHRAYZEE game where you play as an Eldar/Dark Eldar/
There are plenty of male wyches. They are just less popular for the arena's.
Gotta repopulate all the lost gladiators somehow.
That's funny, I don't remember Khan looking that orky.
Nah. Not to mention it literally says right there that are male Hekatarii. You do recall what that rank is, right?
If you want to source me otherwise though, I'll gladly screencap it for future reference.
Choose your space waifu, /v/. If you could have one 40k girl from any faction/race, who would love you (in her own twisted way) and not wish you any harm, who would it be?
No nids for "secret backdoor into the hivemind" bullshit. Only genestealers at best, you sick fucks.
A /thick/ Tau grill. Needs to have a fat round blue ass for me to worship.
If not that, I would also take a short Adepta Sororita. With a big round ass, but a bit more firm. Just slight jiggle to the wiggle.
>Game Workshop is worse that EA itself
Yeah. Cause listening to complaints is so totally anti-consumer! How dare they bring back Knight Titans! How dare they add AdMech and Skiitari armies! How dare they release plastic HH stuff! How dare they release HH stuff on FW! How dare they sell their IP to vidya devs more! How dare they bring back specialist games the previous CEO destroyed!
Necron Warriors with female souls, please.
Is that a polymorphine joke or are you just looking for a girl that is thick, solid, tight, and would probably manage to keep you alive in that universe?
Whatever's the matter, interstellar neighbour?
>he unironically buys overpriced GW miniatures at their original price
How dare they protect their IP! We should have games like this made everywhere and it should make the developer tons of cash!
Didn't say that, just said that Kirby was the problem with GW, not GW itself. Kirby is gone now and GW is doing shit it should have done a long time ago, like doing 40% off bundles.
No? I buy from chinese recasters, or from 3rd parties, or buy 40% off bundles from GW.
Where the fuck did you get that from my comment?
Also...Mantic is literally the only one cheaper than GW. Maybe Perry Bros too. But most 28mm heroic scale sci fi shit is more expensive. Puppets war? More expensive. Maxmini? More expensive. Pig Iron? More expensive. Corvus Belli? More expensive. Privateer Press? More expensive. FFG? More expensive.
Nobody knows if they're skin-tight body suits or part of the assassin herself (or himself in the 1% case). 40k comics shows the suit sort of fading on and off as she transforms.
Old sources say yes, but newer editions slowly phased the half-eldar out. Xenology outright stated they were incompatible and described their biology, but Xenology is non-cannon (they gave Tau feet instead of hooves, for example).
It's basically a don't ask, don't tell thing these days. There's nothing official, but that won't stop being form being die-hard certain about their stance.
Don't believe so. But, you might be right.
Depending on the author, they do. But since it was Goto, probably best to ignore it. Also, I suspect it'd work just like DoW2.
>tfw your waifu will never hollow out your bones and graft muscle and wings to your back, allowing you to fly
Do you lie Necron models down again after they get shot? No? Then fuck off.
Well, uh, I can certainly tell you that a Succubus wouldn't do that, nor should you ask her to try. That's a a haemonculus thing, and you damn well shouldn't be wanting one of those for a waifu.
>no 40k game where you can be a sneaky git
Iz not fair!
Why? X-Wing is literally a completely different game. Just say you never played 40k in the first place. Nobody cares you didn't.
GW kinda avoids any mention of this type of thing and lets the fans decide for themselves. Though in that HH novel, humans and Eldar (Exodites) did live together in harmony and unions, which implied couples between species existed... then three Legions appeared and killed everybody.
W-what? Why did you reply that to me? That makes no fucking sense to anything I said.
I no dat feel, ya git.
There's plenty. They just happen to look like that pic (it's their official model). The trick is finding a female haemonculus that isn't ugly as shit with skin made out of leather from all her experiments/resurrections.
I better question would be why cant be an Ork boy who starts a warband that goes out raiding.
Or maybe a Rogue Trader guy who starts exploring a Space Hulk, ut gets trapped and has find a way out.
>Hm. I want to make shitty Souls clone
>But with 40k
>What race should I pick?
>Keeping in mind that Souls is slow as hell, I should probab-
Yeah nice job fucknuts. You pick the one race in 40k that's speed-based and give it a Souls idea.
You're a retard.
Make like Matt Ward and fuck off.
40k will never get really good video games because GW thinks it will cut into their table top sales which is failing massively because they are charging too much. That was why we only get a couple games that are good and either nothing else or it sucks shit and its also why you rarely see 40k mods because they don't want competition from anyone competent that will release something better than what GW would be willing to pay for. Worldwide copyright reform so it only lasts 14 years and is retroactive and cannot be renewed when?
No. This is strictly space waifu.
But when it comes to space husbando....
How was that ever canon? Old fluff was Old ones created a whole lot of races, but then they vanished and a lot of races just sort of evolved, like humans for instance. Eldar looked down on any race that grew from "wild evolution", because whatever makes them feel superior, I guess.
The only thing Old Ones/Necrontyr/C'tan had to do with humans was that apparently the Nightbringer spooked some early mamals so bad that humanity is still afraid of the reaper.
I always figured a relationship with a raider girl might be fun - the ones that live in realspace, not the Dark City. I imagine they work with Rogue Traders and Eldar Raiders semi-regularly.
>Why? X-Wing is literally a completely different game. Just say you never played 40k in the first place. Nobody cares you didn't.
? I used to live in a house of people who played 40k.
Yeah they are completely different games but they still scratch that table top gaming itch and i'm not getting jewed or have to manage shitty rules while playing it.
I played fantasy a bit too.. until they killed it.
I just want a game where you can play as a Space Marine and you get chances to bang Eldar, Dark Eldar, and Tau like the alien sluts they are with the risk of heresy.
Because at the time of writing, Star Trek was popular and they invented "precursor" races, which was essentially "lol every humanoid alien in the setting was created by another alien god-like race and they all have base DNA and can interbreed and shit". That's why. Plus it was convergent evolution taking to a different level.
>The only thing Old Ones/Necrontyr/C'tan had to do with humans was that apparently the Nightbringer spooked some early mamals so bad that humanity is still afraid of the reaper.
IIRC, the 'crons were also responsible for the pariah gene that causes blanks, but I don't know if that is still canon
Joo neva see us comin
Well, GW sold armies during Xmas which were 40% off if you had bought the same units individually. 3rd Party sellers are 5%-25% off RRP anyway. Chinese Recasters are like 90% off.
But I want my ayylmao husbando.
Also what are the possible skin colors of eldars?
No, because that's fanon. The fluff states that Blood Axe Kommandos wear loads of different camouflage and it works because they think they're harder to see, so they are. Purple was established as the fan 'sneaky' colour, but it's never stated. Outside of "RED GOES FASTA!" there is no advantage mentioned ANYWHERE in fluff, that any other colour is better. As for the bit I just mentioned bout Blood Axe? That's FFG as well, which is dubious at best.
I'm pretty sure there's nothing in the old Codex that states that explicitly. Might be that they just found that gene and thought it convenient so they made them Pariahs.
Hmm... Pariahs. Their design in this picture was GOAT. Too bad the minis weren't as cool and their stats really sucked.
Too bad they removed them from the game and the fluff.
So with terrible netcode, barely functional MP and broken Chaos Gods and Emperor mechanics?
As all life is born to die, so all men are born to decay. There can be no succour in this world. As the centuries drag past our cultures will fade, just as our bodies waste and our passions cool as the winter of life approaches.
In time our mightiest cities shall crack and crumble, and our lofty ideals shall grow weary and jaded. For what are our achievements if not the follies of pride and ignorance?
All shall be forgotten with the passing of years. There will be no exceptions.
For who amongst us can escape the predations of time? Whom amongst us is beyond the inevitability of decay? That which is young can only grow old. That which is whole and sweet can only shrivel and sour. Nothing is permanent and nothing may remain without blemish. It is the fate of all things that they are bound to time, and time is the twin of decay.
So bend a knee, all of this world. Bend a knee all who would embrace their fate and thereby rise above it. Rise up, give in, surrender yourselves to the master of this world.
Father Nurgle is our sovereign and lord, and whether it be sooner or whether it be later, he will claim all in time.
And so this is how the world shall end; not with fire and tempest, but with the collective sigh of failed passions and lost hope.
>no large scale 40k game where I can just chill on a Cruiser repairing the millions of pipes & various machines while hoping to get some holy action with any Sisters of Battle boarding the ship
>Wanting to play as the objectively worst race in 40k
Literally all of the galaxy's current problems are the Eldar's fault, and every time they try to fix those problems they just end up making things worse. Their stupidity has also pissed off humanity - the one other race in the entire galaxy that properly understands the threat of Chaos and would make a strong ally against it - beyond the point of no return. It's a good thing the other races don't know that the Eldar are responsible for Slaanesh, the Eye of Terror, and the Age of Strife, since they'd have even more reason to exterminatus these knife-eared fuck-ups.
>clinging to your decaying body and temporary beauty
>worshipping elf cum
And nurgle is the result of human vomit.
Thus, as the chaos gods were created by mere mortals, they are not fit to lord over them. Therefore the Emperor is the only logical choice.
40k threads are a fool's errand at this point.
Any concept for a Warhammer game is pawned off to some no-name devs that will do it on the cheap, or it's Deathwing aka
The only thing that I will never understand is why the Eldar are so interested in making enemies but they never make allies.
The smarter thing to do in war is to have only one enemy, one front and being surrounded by allies, ask any strategist worth a damn and they will thell you that.
But no, they have this stupid late game plan that will lead them to extincion and every Eldar leader is a dumbass.
You mean 40k?
Because there have been some pretty decent Fantasy and Specialist titles out in recent times.
And think of Creative Assembly what you will, but they certainly aren't no name.
After the total warhammer got announced i got my hopes up, even tho the SEGA jewing DLC is complete trash move.
There might be a chance for another decent dev team to take some war related project in 2016 or 2017, cause the more publicity this IP gets by broader audience, better chances of more competent devs taking the risk of making i believe.
>But no, they have this stupid late game plan that will lead them to extincion and every Eldar leader is a dumbass.
They have to be, or else they would rule the universe again.
If they would team-up with the DEldar
Isnt it founders only, from what i remember few months ago - or you got yourself gifted a pack?
Ps. sure hope so, but requires tons of money thrown at it and hours upon hours of polish to make it what it should be.
Canonically they're supposed to take the most optimal allegiance because farseers aren't 'clouded' constantly
I think it's path of the ranger that shows eldar hiring some dark eldar bros
The actual gameplay seems pretty solid so far ,considering the stage of development. No real concrete explanation of how the metagame is going to work though.
Basically, don't think of it as an MMO, think of it like Space Marine Multiplayer 2.0.
Doubtful man. I'm guessing sometime around start of march or end of march. If not they will only be releasing like a couple of classes instead of 8 that were planned, i believe.
And a single space marine is supposed to be a match for five ork boys, yet that's not the case in DoW (And in Space Marine it's apparently one marine = 100 orks). You make compromises for the sake of gameplay.
>No game where you can explore the Noctis Labyrinth
Get the fuck outta here, xeno scum.
Vindicare best sniper in 40k
Can't wait for dem sexy banshees in EC. Now that they said they're gonna fix heavy weapons, all I need is muh spess elfs and hopefully removing that godawful lockon melee and I can die happy.
>Sounds like your average video game power trip tbqh
Games that are made to be a power trip do this do it in three ways
>you can't be hurt but it takes time to kill enemies
>you instantly kill enemies but you can be hurt
>the game is a pop-up book
When the above are given in very limited doses it can be somewhat enjoyed or at least tolerated. However people feel truly powerful in games it comes from the game part of it. It happens when skillful interaction with the game evokes feelings of power in the player, without it skill we are just watching the character act powerfully. Seeing a character do something without feeling responsible for it causes a breakdown in the immersion which is the point of video games: we are the character.
This is why press x to win boss fights are so hated.
This is also why imperial guard are the perfect choice for a 40k game, because against the untold horrors of space you are just a normal human, but you hold the line and die standing.
Nothin' personnel, monkeys
Sly Marbo is more like a commando. Close quarters ambush is more his style.
>Lenas Scard was a Human astrologer. Known to be a progressive and modern thinker, in 003.M38 he was declared a heretic and marked for death as his discoveries were considered a threat to the Imperial Creed. Dispatching the Vindicare Assassin Erasmus Menst to take care of the matter, the sniper hangs upside-down from a relay pipe for six days, awaiting his prey, only to realize that Scard is aware of his pursuit and holed up inside his observatory. Menst abandons the plan and instead climbs to the highest spire of Hive Mendicantus and looks towards the observatory, knowing that the astrologer will eventually gaze the stars with his telescope. The plan works, and Menst is able to send a bullet right through the telescope and into Scard's head.
>Sly Marbo is more like a commando
Wasn't Marbo the one that shot a sniper bullet that followed the planets curve just to hit some Tau in the face
I remember in game he wasn't a sniper, his job was to suddenly appear out of cover at start of one of your turn and go apeshit throwing bombs all over the place.
Unarmed? Do you mean if they get discovered and attacked in melee?
I'd still say the Vindicare would have the upper hand there. Generally, all the assassins are killing machines, whether they have weapons or not.
>As a Catachan native, Sly Marbo is in his element in the jungle, and he is capable of taking on entire enemy forces through his innate skill at jungle and guerrilla warfare. He strikes from seemingly nowhere and disappears back into the dense jungle. He is famous for his excellent sniping skills and is considered to be one of the deadliest Humans in existence.
>Snikrot and Sly Marbo will never clash in a Predator-esque guerilla battle
>He and his Kommandos stripped down to the bare minimum kit so their bodies blended in with the jungle. They began a campaign of terror and psychological warfare that still plagues the Imperial war effort on Armageddon. Snikrot and his crew were still at large at the start of the Third War for Armageddon 50 years later.
>still no imperial guard game
Banshee game by Platinum, make it happen.
I think Marbo could take himn. Marbo is canonically one of the deadliest (if not THE deadliest) regular humans in existence and honestly his accomplishments are much crazier than Snikrot's.

>aliens that look like humans
I wish this meme would end.
Canonically, Eldar look a bit more alien than most fanart depicts them. Still pretty human-like, though.
I really like the Tau and think their armies and their gear look cool as hell.
I wish they didn't trigger Imperium of Man players so hard.
If they get uppity, just give them this.
Is it even possible to do a Gue'vesa Space Marine chapter?
>purposefully and knowingly committing heresy
>tfw no commisar game or movie
Can you imagine how awesome that shit would be? All these overpowered aliens and elves flying all over the place doing hokey pokey magic fireballs against one dude with a pistol and his squad
You can do whatever the hell you want. It'll tweak some noses, but there are plenty of non-Chaos renegade chapters out there. Saying that one decided that the Tau was a worthy cause isn't all that absurd.
I wasn't sure if there was some rule or whatever that would make it not game-legal.
With the current rules, you can make any faction allied with anyone. They made a chart for how the two armies work around each other (by varying degrees of trust).
However, as far as I know, it has to be done through the ally system, along with the stupid mistrust rules. It's the same for modern Chaos and renegades, afaik.
Yeah, but then you have to respect the alliance chart, and since Imperium and Tau are desperate allies, the distrust rules will be in effect and that kind of rules out the whole Gue'vesa concept :^)
>Orks with fewest "come the apocalypse" match ups
since when did orks make so many friends?
Blood Axes have a history of mercenary work.
Since allying with 'umies/sparkly gits/evil gits can lead to bigger fights, it makes sense to the orks. And if you think about it, the orks do not actually hate anyone, they just love krumpin' gits, and if an alliance opens opportunities to krump more, dat's gud.
Spot the nigger whose knowledge of the fluff is based on DoW.
CWE and DE are still kin, despite their differences and disagreements. They will rather work with actual people than with a bunch of rabid animals, that they see everyone that is not eldar as.
Also they're much less sociable seeing as their goal in life is to destroy reality and enslave all mortal life. Mortal chaos followers are mostly just selfish and trying to earn gifts from the gods.
No they couldn't.
Orks are part fungus for fuck's sake.
Humans have greater chance of making "hybrids" with god damn oak trees, than with Orks, or the Eldar. They are alien fucking species. The Eldar DNA is part crystal based or some shit, if we go by Xenology.
The only place where human/Xeno hybrids might exist, are in the laboratories of the Haemonculi, as results of twisted experiments.
I'm saying that both are equally unlikely, to the degree that they border on impossible.
Both Orks, and Eldar, are god damn alien in their biology, despite their resemblance to humans (more in the case of the later), so naturally sired "hybrids" are basically impossible.
No we don't. After all 30k is a far better game than 40k, and it has no xenos
Ergo, xenos ruin everything
Don't you want the Greater Good, familia?
Remove everyone but orks
Play Gorkamorka forever!
I don't know very much about 40k but I saw these two at a con a few weeks ago
There's only one WH40K game character I want to play as, and it's this motherfucker right here.

Praise the Omnissiah and remove xenos
Didn't he realise that turning traitor was a mistake and then went totally off the deep end because he couldn't get out or something like that? Or am I thinking of someone else?
>Giving out all that tech to Gue'vesa
Pretty sure they get something more similar to their usual imperial armor. At best they get some pulse rifles with most still using lasguns
At least with WW2 games you had some variety of guns. Imperium gets lasgun, plasma gun, longlas, and some kinetic based guns with other arms being heavy weapons. Not nearly as much variety to work with to have a FPS game
