On the contrary, Tony, there by definition *must* be kill-maim-burn if we're talking about Tyranids in the same breath as Rant.

You'll get enough of a chance to see why fairly soon, although yes, I do appreciate the difference -- thanks.

his bolter, an older Thunderclap pattern, accepted only straight mags and those were scarce in comparison with the more standard sickle and drum mags. Bolts were bolts but the feeds were different, and incompatible with a Thunderclap.

Couldn't he take the bolts out of the sickle mags to refill his straight ones. Contrary to video games it isn't standard practice to discard empty magazines, you take them back and refill them.

That's actually what I had in mind but I must've been a bit ambiguous with my choice of words. I'll clear that up.

EDIT: fixed. His problem's really just that if he's given a drum he's got to dismantle it to use the bolts -- I figured that straight mags just weren't all that popular, just judging by all the models I've seen. Of the modern plastics I think it's just a few Chaos Marine bolt pistols that use straights.

Come to think of it, drums aren't all that prevalent either, but if the Inquisitor LRB is to be believed, at least the drum feed is more current.

Yes. When Artos finds out, I think he will ask for a flamer. Of course, this would be after the "Oh dear Emperor, must I go through this again" thing. And then Artos and Rant can really show off their experience. Or possibly their rage.

Might not be confined just to the Tyranids either.

EDIT: Swarbie, you've had Rant use too many words again XD

"Perhaps," replied Rant. "Or they might just see it as laziness."
would probably read better as

Again, not having a go, Tony gets it wrong too -- it;s just that Rant hates using extra words where he doesn't need them, even if they would alter the meaning of his sentence.

next mission is up

hopefully it's clear which thread it is

if not its the Gerome Operation

And I only use too many words because I can't translate to chav  ;D not that I'm calling you a chav Koval but you obviously speak the lingo  :P

Haha! I wasn't aiming for chav (although it does sorta come naturally after having been around enough of them for so long...)

EDIT: Congratulations, Rant's now pissed off

Fixed Rant's speech.

Artos is scared. He may not be showing it, but he's scared.

He knows it's incredibly unlikely that they will all get out of this mission alive.

If both of them get out of this in one piece, maybe he and Rant should start a Tyrranic Veterans club.

Heh... Would be funny, but I have my doubts somehow, mostly because of the get-out-in-one-piece thing.

Tony, tiny fluff blip, the fire-gas Rant references is a natural product of the life-eater virus. Specifically, it's what the life-eater creates when it eats things. Sources vary onwhether it combusts on its own or needs a shot from orbit to do the job (probably depends on local conditions, truth be told).

So that brings up Rant's complaint -- the 'nids have hoovered up the life-eater and its gas, and only have more weapons at their disposal (in particular I'm thinking of Spore Mines, most of their guns, and the Toxic Miasma)

I'll make a proper post once Demos' part of the briefing is finished.

Thank you, I just got the name from one of the Horus Heresy books and thought it would be a useful transition from thunderbird to something slightly bigger and capable of transporting more.
