OK NO! I WAS JUST READING THE GUIDE ON CHAOS WARBANDS, and something caught my eye. APPARENTLY dark apostles can only originate and / or exist within (or be from) word bearer armies. Even though they could be chaplains from a renegade chapter NOPE APPARENTLY NOT!!!
I may be over-reacting but, but the painted model on the webstore is painted as an emperors children marine so why cant any legion get dark apostles.
I am going to have at least one dark apostle in any fanon warband I make because it makes sense for most AND IF YOU CLAIM THIS IS AGAINST CANON THEN LET TZEENCH HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL!Read more >
So for those of you who aren't already aware, Fall of Cadia happened and is apparently now a thing. From what I understand Ezekyle "Joke's Not Relevent Anymore" Abbadon finally got over his crippling inadequacy issues and pulled a "Just As Planned" that in reality went anything but planned. Also something something Trazyn the Infinite something something Saint Celestine something something Cadian Pylons did work, then didn't work, and then Cadia go BOOM.
Honestly it was all rather confusing.

Now it would be the first time to actually do this, and I DON'T KNOW, literally, on how to correctly do this thing but to this end though I'm creating it, this, for the sole purpose of just trying to see what you gentlemen and ladies (if there are some) of how and what do you think of the Silver Knights thus far and other articles related to it.

Alright, so I've started a Community Project page for the Krymzon Tyd Klan in association with one of the Notable Campaigns that my Chapter - the Knights of the Hawk - are engaged upon. Now here's what I'm thinking the Community could help out with if people are down for contributing:
- I would like to expand upon the Krimzon Tyd Klan.
- I want to create a page (which I'll probably do very soon) for
their WAAAGH! and/or the actual war their fighting in (the Solar

I am a new member of the Community and still trying to get a hang of writing Fanon and using Wikia. My First Space Marine Chapter Teuton Brotherhood has been evolving a lot as I start making more lore about the planet, natives, and environment. But I am not sure if I have gone overboard and gone too detailed about trivial things. Should I make a seperate page about the Homeworld Koein? Because I feel like that section takes waaaaay too much space when I should be talking about the Chapter itself.
I am still messing around with the fluff of the chapter (A Lot), along with the specialties, beliefs, culture, organization, geneseed, and so on. And there are a lot of sections that are incomplete.
Just curious about what y'all think abou…Read more >
Hey guys, writing a blog regarding my chapter. So, I would like some feedback from the viewers, from likes to dislikes.

It's my signature dish and I felt I should share its health boosting effects with the fine folks on this wiki. Let me show you how it's done:
- An egg (or two if you really want to stack dat cholesterol)
Right, so go ahead and get the that stick a butter and cut of a thicc slice. Put it in a pan or skillet and then turn on the heat. Watch that glob of condensed goodness melt into a puddle of flavor as the heat increases. Get an egg out and crack it. Pour that egg in and fry it like one normally fries an egg. Take the egg out and put it aside. You can either discard the skillet you just cooked the egg in or clean it if you want to use it for cooking the meat.

So I'm writing this post to ask you guys for some info,specifically
1. What are they good at?
2. Anything specific you'd like to see them do(any regimental rivalries, someone becoming a one man army,surviving against impossible odds, one man takes an enemy stronghold almost single handed- stuff like that)?
I don't have all the details fleshed out yet so I can very easily write more battles featuring your units.

As it is well known, the English language on internet is hugely degraded to the point that it is in most cases completely unreadable. As part of the admin team on this site, I do not want to see such messy pages here which is why I'm particularly eager to flag pages for quality issues regarding spelling and grammatic mistakes.
Now we all do mistakes sometimes and it is completely understandable if there are few misplaced letters or odd sentences in articles. However, if the whole page is written without capitalizations, for example, that is a reason enough to flag the page.

Any fanon Imperial Adepta (Adeptii? Adeptuses?) interested in slaughtering some filthy xenos? If so, I have a proposition for you.
Basically I'm looking to flesh out some events concerning the Amphra species, and hoping I can get some more factions from this wiki involved in them. This is not a request for a fully-fledged collaboration, merely a expedient way of asking for permission. It also helps me coordinate in case you have any specific requests in return for the service of your IG, SM, etc.

I have finally reached the status of Chapter Master after hours of battle with my brother, Abel, who was the only one in our chapter, the Thorned Blades, who even came close to my mastery of the blade and hammer.
Our battle was to the death and I was victorious and, as is our way in the Thorned Blades, his death placed me into the spot of Chapter Master. His death will not go uncelebrated for he was a good soldier and a great leader and his death will ripple through the hearts of our Astartes. We will burn his body on the great funeral pyre we have constructed outside of our fortress. We will drink good for his death was not an end but a new beginning for the Thorned Blades.Read more >

Age of Being Mediocre
Key themes of this time

- 2009: Wikia founded. Not much happens. No real coherent ruleset. Admins do as they see fit.
- 2010: Wikia continues to grow, not much happens. No real coherent ruleset. Admins are infrequently active.
- 2011: Greatbeing is annoying and creates a minor era of being irritating. Rampant vandalism and visual glitches due to poor coding. No real coherent ruleset.

As the title says- I want to thank all of you on the wiki who have helped me out with one thing or another and especially to all those I've collaborated with. I relay enjoy that part of this wiki's nature- creative people coming together to tell stories, made so much richer because of it.
I'm very happy to a part of it, a vast intricate universe made even more so(even if unofficially) by its fans. Thanks to all of you who have welcomed me in, helped me smooth out the rough patches in my writing, and offered knowledge.

After much internal debate and discussion with the rest of the admin team, I, OrkMarine, have decided to step down as an administrator of this wikia due to my waning activity on the site. The reason for this is due to the increased activity of my own personal life, my bangin 9/10 girlfriend, dealing with my clinical depression, aswell as a general lack of interest in 40k anymore. I know all of you will be sad to see me go, being the first democratically elected admin on the wiki and its primary user relations officer, but all good things must come to an end eventually. I wish the best of the luck to the rest of the administrator team and hand over my burden of leadership to whoever is chosen for the illustrious role of my replacement.

Question of the day is:
How many Adepta Sororitas convents there are in the Imperium of Man?
Because there are few Sororitas articles that claim their Order's convent to be something else than Convent Prioris or Convent Sanctorum. As I have understood, the Adeptus Ministorum was reformed by the fabled Sebastian Thor after the Age of Apostasy and High Lord Vandire Goge's Reign of Blood. In this particular reformation, the Daughters of Emperor all-female warrior cult that served as High Lord's personal bodyguard, were reformed into Adepta Sororitas Orders of which half became situated into Convent Prioris and half into Convent Sanctorum. After while, many of the Orders spawned number of new orders, which became known as Lesser Orders, and as we…

News flash perfectionists: if everything on this wiki was a masterpiece of fanon, then the content here would get pretty boring pretty fast, don't you think? What's the point of standing out if you've got nothing to be compared to?

About the Space Marines' canon policy, we had a discussion of the loyalist traitors and the actual neccessity of that particular rule. Here:
The bolstered text is the part I wish we'd rediscuss about. While the first sentence, "There will also be no 'loyalist traitors' (characters that were part of Traitor Legions and stayed loyal to the Emperor) who survive the Great Scouring" was written to ensure that no chapters were written which gene-seed was from traitor legions, there has been no numerous horrendous examples of traitor loyalists. Loyalist traitors always seemed to find out their gene-seed donated to one chapter or another, usually with the help of a somewhat corrupted inquisitor.
We also allow Thunder Warriors to survive the Great Sc…Read more >
Recently I have been thinking on the nature of how the Imperium Navigates it's way through the Warp while engaging in faster than light transit. Now bear with me here. The Imperium's sole means of FTL travel is through the Warp. However the issue with that aside from the obvious dangers and mishaps is that it's impossible to get one's bearings within the Warp. The Warp is constantly shifting, changing and flowing meaning that there are no discernable landmarks within the Warp itself, and one can not check on the surroundings in realspace while in the Warp. This means that while a Navigator can still see into the Warp and read its currents, they have no reliable way of knowing their position within the Warp relative to Real Space, which mak…Read more >

I ask the question in the title because of something I realized.
Most of my work is connected: The Kashidaan Cluster, The Tricamerate Pact and Fidea Prime all interact, as does Neck's Kanye Cluster.
The Kashidaan Cluster fell to the Tyrannids during the 1st Tyranic war- which occurred in the Ultima Segmentum- which means that those worlds that interact with them have to be there too.
I mention this because if you do have work set in the Segmentum Ultima go ahead and connect it to my work if you want, but if you want to please talk to me first, wanna keep things organized.--
On a similar note- anyone willing to take in Kashidaan Cluster Refugees? anybody have worlds where Medieval Italians (Medici) would fit in?

It has been 13 days since the last transmission from the Imperial Guard fortress on Yovida home to the 1-5 Ankylus Mechanized Regiments and a small permanent garrison.

People might be wondering why I've decided to tag articles with the quality issue template.
Well, after a recent discussion, it's come into light that the lack of uniformity between articles and the "quality" of what users choose to make use of in their info boxes (Chapter Respect springs to mind). This ultimately means that we are no longer plagued by the issue of the new friend and his inability to read the rules.
Furthermore, it also alerts people to that fact that we already have a large (and growing) array of custom templates. It isn't hard to use these, and they keep the coherency and neatness of the wikia in check.
And also, the first time an article was tagged for this issue, it was one of our admins (Remos) and so far, I have not bee…Read more >
