Today - what you've done


Recommended Posts

The good thing is that once people see you actually follow through with a few conversions they thought silly, they start showing that grudging hobby respect because silly as they may have thought it would be, you did pull it off :) (though I have yet to make teddy bear marines)

Haha! I can imagine, nerds are very sensitive about  some thing

Try converting a female Space Marine army and watch your Friendship Meters go from 100 to 0 in the blink of an eye.

Is there anything in the gene-seed pseudo science though that would prevent it? Other than the Emperor being the Emperor?

I mean Space Marines and Primarchs were supposed to be intelligent. And if you read any Horus Heresy fiction, intelligent is not a word you should use when describing any of those characters.

Rightfully so, can't you just be happy with Battle Sisters?

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Ugh. Sororitas. The whole naked penitent thing is so cringeworthy.

I don't have a horse in this race. I know it's not canon, but at the end of the day, it's your army. If it's fun for you, then that's all that should matter, really.

I don't think there's a canon reason behind gene-seed being male-only besides "that's how the Emperor designed it", no.  I could be wrong though.

I know Malcador muses in the books that perhaps certain Primarchs should have been created as women, but that's about it.

Not really, though from what I've read the massive hormone treatments and similar renders you a muscle monster to the point where the only difference between a female and male base subject would be that one would have male genitalia and one would have female genitalia.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

I think it is something that the geneseed is only compatible with males.  The books have a funny bit where Malcador says he told the Big E that the Primarchs should be sisters, that way they'd co-operate better.  I guess that would have ripped off the Fish Speakers so too on the nose for the God Emperor 😛

That's my bomba. He throws bomb bombs at the opposing team.

Got a friend to paint the team for me. since I paint at a speed of 1 mini per three months and would never have finished. He decided Wario would be more appropriate than Mario or Luigi.

Is... is one of those goblins wearing a Wario hat? Nice one!

Also, I love how you converted the WHFB River Troll models. Sweet team! 👍

There is a LED in his cigar. That was a pain. Not as much a pain as that lightsabre, but still a pain. At least it works well though. Unlike the lighsabre which only really lights properly in complete darkness.

Okay, the LED thing is actually amazing. Very creative.

Hats off to you, sir. People like you make the hobby awesome.

Finland, actually. Yes, that's another one of those in-jokes. I mean, not that obscure, that signature's been around for a while... :p

Boss called me at my desk, which he never does. Thought I was getting fired. Got more work instead. 

Sounds like something that would happen to Gorgon.

But isn't there a little bit of Gorgon in all of us when you think of it?

Not everyone is into mythological fetish porn like you, man.
