    Default Warhammer 40000 Q&A

    This is a thread dedicated to people with questions about anything to do with Warhammer 40k and they can hopefully be answered by all the people who use this forum and of course myself.

    So start asking:

    how the hell can commadner farsight be a threat to the supermacy of the god emprah?
    I check into small hotel a few kilometers from Kiev. It is late. I am tired. I tell woman at desk I want a room. She tells me room number and give key. "But one more thing comrade; there is one room without number and always lock. Don't even peek in there." I take key and go to room to sleep. Night comes and I hear trickling of water. It comes from the room across. I cannot sleep so I open door. It is coming from room with no number. I pound on door. No response. I look in keyhole. I see nothing except red. Water still trickling. I go down to front desk to complain. "By the way who is in that room?" She look at me and begin to tell story. There was woman in there. Murdered by her husband. Skin all white, except her eyes, which were red. I tell her I don't give a . Stop the water trickling or give me refund. She gave me 100 ruble credit and free breakfast. Such is life in Moscow

    Nobody said he was.

    The only thing the Inquisition wonder about him is if he is controlled by another xeno race, or whether he is possed by chaos, and also what this could mean for the other Tau.

    I think he's possessed by Chaos because part of his mystery is his extended life. He is far older then Tau normally live for. Some say his Honor Blade is a Daemon Weapon if so this would make him possessed and explain his longer then usual life.

    I've been eyeballing this game for a while. What exactly is the gameplay like? Which one should I get (DOW or DOW 2?)? Basically introduce me to this

    Actually the Dawn Blade is more likely a Necron Weapon. It was found on Arthas Moloch, in the ruins of a pre-human civilisation. It is powered by an unknown energy source and can cut through infantry and vehicles with ease (Warsythe equivalent anyone?)

    Are you interested in the Video-games or the table-top game?


    For the video games i'd start with Dawn of War One and work your way through them.

    Of course. The C'Tan (especially the Deceiver) Are super anti social and will kill the first thing they run across. Even each other.

    That was the past. The C'tan cannot win unless they work together to complete the Great Work.

    how do you play normal custom game against AI only in DOW2 & standalone expansion

    1. You click on Multiplayer

    2. Then you click on custom game.

    3. Then you start a private match and set it up so you are playing against the CPU instead of human players.



    And there you go.

    "WE WILL SMITE THE INVADERS FROM OUR SKIES! Though they sweep over our lands like the sands of winter, never again will we bow before them; never again endure their oppression; never again endure their tyranny. We will strike without warning and without mercy, fighting as one hand, one heart, one soul. We will shatter their dreams and haunt their nightmares, drenching our ancestors' graves with their blood. And as our last breath tears at their lungs; as we rise again from the ruins of our cities...they will know: Helghan belongs to the Helghast." -Scholar Visari

    Na, you guys never want to win but just occasionally wake up and harvest living souls, then go to sleep again.

    Anyway, does Necron fight eachother for food dispute?

    No as each C'tan feeds off a different kind of essence.

    Nightbringer feeds off fear of death, Outsider feeds off insanity, Void Dragon feeds off fear and probably superstition, and The Deciever feeds off worship and to a lesser extent fear.

    But I thought those fear is emotion that under Nurggle's domain? No wonder Chaos has to fight you since there is food dispute...

    Well emotions have an effect on a souls essence. This is why the C'tan prefer to eat living beings over suns (Which they can survive on, they just have no taste).

    Chaos was gonna fight the C'Tan regardless of food.

    The C'Tan view the Chaos Gods as upstarts and young rivals. The pride of the C'Tan not allowing for anyone other then them to survive means they must seek to wage war with Chaos at every turn. Even if the food dispute was settled (and the C'Tan plan to settle it on their terms) the two superpowers would still be at each other's throats.

    Chaos couldn't ally with the C'Tan also because of pride, but also it is against the nature of the Chaos Gods to commit to long term alliances as that's not very....... Chaotic. Also the Chaos Gods are very single minded, megalomaniac, and self serving. Capricious to the extreme, it is not in their personality to ally with the C'Tan or any other Gods.
