News, Rumours and Trading / Re: 8th Edition Announced: It's FREE??
« Last post by Cammerz on Yesterday at 09:20:03 AM »
I must say I am loving the models in the Dark Imperium set. Whilst I may not agree with the fluff behind Primaris Astartes, I like these True-scale marines (except perhaps the Interceptors, they're a bit weird).

And those Death Guard look beautiful. I'm not so sure about the Poxwalkers but at least they seem happy which followers fo Grandfather Nurgle should be. Has the Lord of Contagion borrowed that axe design from the orks though?

(Okay, here's how I'm treating this: You guys heard the noises of the guards down the hall, and are turning to go back and help your allies.)

Roll - Stuff happens
[Spoiler]
NOPE
NOPE
NOPE
[/spoiler]

Roll - Tarkus looks for an opening
[Spoiler] Perception Check. Per 34, needs 34 or lower.
RESULT: 48. 1 degrees of failure.
[/spoiler]

Tarkus hurried down the hall to see what all the commotion was, followed by Lazarus, both of them rounding the corner to see the three guards, all camped out in front of the door.

Before Tarkus could get a good look at them, one of the guards spotted the pair, shouting, "There's two more!", and turning to fire his shotgun at the two escaped prisoners.

Roll - Guard fires on Tarkus
[Spoiler] Ballistic Skill Check. BS 30, +10 for regular shot, +10 for close range, needs 50 or lower.
RESULT: 100. Critical Failure
[/spoiler]
The guard wheeled his shotgun on Tarkus, pulling the trigger. Rather than a roar of gunfire and a cluster of deadly pellets flying down the hallway, though, a popping noise was heard and the shotgun clicked, its slide locked halfway between firing a round. The guard swore, fumbling the gun.


Roll - Initiative

Tarkus Stone - 13
Salk Icharus - 12
Scythia Harlocke - 11
Guard 1 (Leader) - 11
Wilhelm - 10
Lazarus Wolfe - 8
Guard 2 (Jammed) - 6
Guard 3 (Injured) - 7

Lazarus QUITE SIMILARLY finishes his very very long daydream of his former life, and how close he finally is to reaching that, and tensely grips his bed pole.

He is NOT going back into his cell.

He approaches the room with the guards.

Tarkus attempts to survey the situation and potential weaknesses of the guards, refreshed from a long open eyed nap.

The guards scuttled down the hall, footsteps heard in unison. A second passed, and then one pointed his shotgun around the corner, aimed at the first target he saw, and then hesitated.

"Hold your fire!" he shouted, his voice tinny behind his faceplate, as the other two guards moved into position. One dove across the gap of the door to take up a position on the other side, and as he did, Scythia fired.

Roll - Scythia fires on the guard.
[Spoiler] Ballistic Skill Check. Bs 34, +10 for regular attack. Needs 44 or lower.
RESULT: 66. 4 degrees of success.
Fate point. Result: 43. 0 Degrees of success.

Roll to evade: 66. Failure.
Roll for damage (1d10+4 I): 5 + 4 = 9.
Tb3, wearing Flak armor. 2 wounds.[/spoiler]

The shot was close, but narrowly nicked the guard as he scrambled into cover behind the doorway.

"Hold your fire!" The guard shouted, from the other side of the door, hidden behind the wall. "We want to talk!"

Scythia runs over to salk as he begins to slump over and pulls out her chainblade, grabbing Salk and lifting him up with the chainblade against his neck, finger on the throttle. She grabs the shotgun with the other hand and holds it over his shoulder, pointed at the doorway as she stands round its corner. She ignores any screams or pleas and prepares for the oncoming guards, careful to leave his helmet down.

Salk, sensing he was about to receive unwelcome company, pulled the helmet's face shield down over his face and sat slumped against a nearby wall. He kept his shotgun close at hand, but took care to arrange it as if it had fallen to the floor beside him.
He intended to act as though they'd overwhelmed him (a lone prison guard) and that they'd taken his keys.

One complication i discovered is the fact it may not be possible to turn abhumans into space marine unless their biology can adapt to and survive the transformation of an astartes
I've started making lore about narsi and with the recent progression of the 40k storyline aka the gathering storm
I was thinking the chapter has allied itself with the eldar
also the chapter is trying to make a new empire believing the imperium of man will fall eventually

Roll - Tarkus opens the vent.
[Spoiler] Strength Check. St 31, +30 for butt of Autogun, needs a 61 or lower.
RESULT: 15. 4 degrees of success.[/spoiler]

Roll - Tarkus slides into vent.
[Spoiler] Acrobatics Check. Agility 52, trained in Acrobatics, needs a 62 or lower.
RESULT:  80. Re-rolled. 50. 1 degree of success.[/spoiler]

Roll - Hahaha, not gonna tell you.
[Spoiler]NOPE[/spoiler]


Tarkus raised up the butt of his autogun, smashing it into the grate of the vent. It clattered in the metal duct with a satisfying sound, leaving a gap open that was just large enough for a man to slip in.
And that's exactly what Tarkus did, grabbing the edge of the vent and crawling in. It wasn't exactly graceful, but he moved with speed and efficiency, and didn't get snagged or caught on anything.

"Quick!" One of the guards shouted. "It sounds like they're breaking something!"
