Bar fight at Warhammer convention enters third day!

Shocking, just shocking. When will the ravaging savagery end?

That's not real Warhammer.

It would involve millions in a massive bloody meat grinder and would last for a whole year. The Ruinous Powers would feed off of the psychic discharge and start an invasion into the bar, possessing many and adding daemons into the mix. Then they would turn on each other becuaseof the Great Game.

About 5 months later, Big G would show up at the smoking ruins of the bar and would wonder what the hell happened. He would probably then build a new, bigger bar on top of the first and develop special Primaris Bartenders and Staff to man it, order some Macraggian Wine and local spirits, and then be on his way.

Well that report was only 3 days in. All of the rest of that is still ongoing.

Right.

NOW.

So just started reading the first heretic. Lorgar is really strange, so far if you can call them normal the primarchs that have appeared in the first 15 books seem relatively normal. Even Magnus just felt like he should. But him with Lorgar the way his skin and tats are described and the self flagellation kind of a bit freaky. Though im not really sire what I expected. I don't know if anybody who has read a lot of series has felt similar?

I recently bought Gladius on Steam. My goodness is that game fun. I started playing it like 4 days ago and I've already racked up 23 hours (though a few of those were me leaving it running while doing other stuff). I am simultaneously appalled at how much I've played while also fighting the urge to play more.

Aurelian really helps flesh him out, along with basically having every one of his best moments in the entire heresy concentrated into one novella.
Or that might just be my way of saying that he doesn't really have any really good moments outside of Aurelian...
My favourite moment in First Heretic though is definitely the Word Bearers watching how the Custodes fight.

The correct answer is the Emperor, and only the Emperor, heretic.

(all rps aside I'd say Tzeentch first then Malal then Slaanesh. And then that god of the greater good, he's a fun concept.).
