I have MSN but I don't really use it anymore. It used to be good but now they've 'improved' it, it's crap. Where's my little waving sheep you bustards!?!

Post. We'll see how long it is before D'Nim really gets into his offensive stride.

Post Post Scriptum, I'm somehow imagining Ingaevon with Dio's face, just without the (receding) mane of heavy metal hair.
In case anyone's wondering, D'Nim looks rather like a cross between Master Chief and Cpl. Adrian Shephard, although his hair is a bit shorter and darker.

degenerate rabble


Really, Marco! That hurts!!! Especially after all they've just been through.

Anyway, Artos and D'Nim begin to lock horns. Metaphorically, of course. We're not that degenerate. :P

re Koval: I have MSN, I just don't use it much. Also, feel free to movie marine Artos however you want. I was planning to do something similar anyway.

Rest assured I will movie-marine anyone who needs it, but equally I do like a bit of realism somewhere -- Marines may be able to run straight through a wall without stopping but a big enough Ork will ruin just about anyone's day. Even the Emperor got choked by an Ork once.

Yeah. Bit surprising, considering Golden Boy could pretty much wipe a battlefield using just his mind, let alone his supposedly horrifically great physical strength.

Russ still beat him in a drinking contest though.

Yes, but I'm pretty sure Russ was the embodiment of all the barbaric races with a deeply-held love of drinking vast amounts of alcohol. No wonder he won.

The Emperor may have been generally uber-powerful, but his sons specialised.

When you put it like that you're just making me want to collect a Space Wolves army. Ah, why does the Codex I own have to be in French?

I think it makes everyone want to collect Space Wolves. And make objective markers showing beer barrels.

As for why your codex is in French, I have no idea.

A more accurate question, then, would be why they had to release the Space Wolves 'dex the instant I left for Belgium... Ah well.

Because GW has no respect for you as a potential Son of Russ. My condolences.

Well, they should! I have taken up residence in the kingdom of the beers, have I not?

You have? Lucky you.

And if so, they should indeed! 'Tis outrageous, the way they can treat us like this and expect us to keep buying expensive figures. Of course, we keep doing it anyway, but that's beside the point.

And I think we may have derailed this thread for long enough. Plus I need to get in some violin practice before I go to bed. Goodnight all.

D'Nim is displaying Demos all of the respect he has actually earned. But given that the two have yet to fight alongside each other, that isn't exactly a lot.
In all truth, he would much rather be going with Pontus, or even better, wouldn't be serving with the Deathwatch at all.

On a moderately unrelated note, there's a wonderful second meaning in D'Nim's chapter name. (Purely coincidental, but appropriate.)
A jackal, aside from being a form of canid, is a person who performs degrading tasks as the follower of another - and in D'Nim's mind*, that's pretty much exactly what's going to happen.

*Oh look. A palindrome.

...but a big enough Ork will ruin just about anyone's day.
Certainly could. But there is a pretty good Apothecary going with you, so he can patch up most of the messes people turn themselves into.

As for whether he'll heal the others, the answer is yes. He'll do his job, but that doesn't mean that he's not going to be generally rude, disrespectful and all-round cynical along the way.
But don't assume he'll get any healing perfect though. He is only familiar with his own chapter's "pure" biology.

I wondered how long it would be before that came up.
