the trouble is having a realistic enemy.in mine i was gonna fight Tyranids, but it woulda been a small force(fat chance) so i gotta think up sumone else to kill in mine.

hey why don't we see if we can get together or somthing, to have a fight, that is if we are all close enough to each other(probably not but it was a nice idea).

i live in Florida an i'm pretty sure at least one of u is from a different country.

About the logo I'll be short. It's hard to get an central idea for this, so lets get a central agreement for this.

Think of this: When I scream Warhammer 40.000! What is the first thing you see?

Just give me a straigth short answer.

What I see before me is a dark gothic image of Cadians fending of the Tyranids. Thats 40k for me, dark, evil and unforgiving. It reminds me of the GW motto: Remember! In the 40k universe there are no good guys!

The logo would be best in black and white, but with a space marine. Thats the first thing most people will think of when they hear the word Warhammer 40.000. In my case a Ultramarine. These guys are from the most neutral chapter around.

But, this is a group. Let's press the issue and throw in those ideas!


Ah great, just what we need!

I've got nothing against Megaman, I just needed a easy target. But as soon as there are more sprites I'll change it to a Space Marine for fun. Only the marine won't feel the bolt hitting him. (He would probably reply with something like: Har har har, very funny. Quit before I get all evil on your ass...)

As for my magenta level project.

Have you guys ever heard of the word combination "Spritecomic?" Here's an example of one of the best around!

That’s what I'm aiming at with all these sprites. Since the beginning of the summer vacation I've been churning out and refining my story designs I made while at school and in the vacation. At first my "plot" was to create a series of sprite movie based on my stories, linking them together as episodes to create a running story from multiple POV (points of view). But seeing as flash wasn't that easy I thought it would be and the chance that most people here on Newgrounds in general aren't waiting for a dramatic series, but more or less waiting for "Stickslayer XIII", "Dress up *Insert name of famous movie actress who poses naked here*" or "Ultra Gore Bloody Supah Deathmatch Which Is Not A Dragon Ball Z Rip-off Like The Rest!" It would be probably be blammed by 13 year olds. (Yes, I am a pessimistic person)

But anyway, I've been seeking council with DorkBoy and he agreed to sprite for the comic. As for the main story itself, it's unknown to me as of yet. I have some humorous and serious scenes penned down and sketched out, but they need to be placed in the correct line of events.

The project has been christened "Heroes of the Imperium" just as my previously ditched flashproject. It won't just be featuring the lackeys of the Emperor, but almost every other race in the 40K universe (Uhm, except for squats, I totally hate squats.) hence I asked what your main character in your army looks like, some for cameo's, others for a serious part in the story line.

(This is not just a project for fun and entertaining people, but also as a personal test, to see how well my plot and writing skills really are.)

This I already know:
+ The Tyranid warriors of Sumireyu have an interesting genus that has a cool morale effect. These will be encountered many times throughout the comic (With your permission of course.) by the Ordo Xenos and Space Marines as they wish to examine and try to terminate this Hive fleet.
+ The Space Marine commanders and warriors with the crapload of equipment you stated will be used. They won't die or anything (that) bad will happen to them. They'll get to blow some shit up and slay some baddies and one or two will play a role in the storyline as they accompany a Inquisistor or one such important character.
+ The Space Marines will get most of the glorious battle, but, seeing as they have little emotion left they are not the greatest material for emotional scenes and such.(Though I have read the two Ultra Marines books about Uriel Ventris, Space Marines must remain the emotionless warriors who alone can stop the darkness!) Hence the Imperial Guard, civilians and Sisters of Battle will provide more of a humane side to the slaughter. (But not with the usual "I love you Sister Merity!")
+ The wanderer will also be a important character, but he's classified for now. Or else I'd give away spoilers. All I can say is that he carries a crapload of weapons and gear (Sniper rifle as you already saw, a powers word, bolt pistol and bionics.)

What I wish to know:
+ Input from you guys is much wanted. Anything is helpful! Marine names, planet names, Traitor names (as you can notice I'm really bad at inventing names of my own. So, if you hate a guy or gal, let me know, he'll probably die in a horrible and painful 40k death!), psychic powers (Don't over do though), human factions (I.E. Such as the Kell-Morian mining company)
+ Storyline suggestions? Or just a cool idea for a single comic? Let me hear it.
+ Idea for comical relief? A comic can't be all serious and blood and gore, it also needs some comical relief once in a while. (Though blood, gore and a joke usually get along nicely? Brother Cloten anybody?)

As of yet, its all still in the planning process. DorkBoy is still busy spriting but also has to go to school soon and has a job besides that. I cannot promise a exact date of when this all will begin I'm afraid.

If I can get a good beginning around the end of autumn its go time, at the utmost around Christmas.

As for then, please send me any kind of idea's possible. Anything is helpful.

Until then!

What I meant with shooting the Marine is this little statistic. It takes around 30 lasguns in rapid fire range to take down a single space marine (Thats 60 shots, but they have to roll to hit, which is a 50% chance of hitting the marine. Now comes the saving throw. Whee! Look at all the dice roll, it must be about forthy...) So how much harm can a single laspistol do? Not much with Space Marine. He's only annoyed, hence the "Har har har, very funny. Now quit it before I get all evil on your ass..." thingy.

If it was a evil Necron, I'd grab a plasmapistol and roast his shiney ass!

Be my guest they will prove a challnge lol and Im glad you find them interesting....most people just go straight off the bat trying to figure out how to kill my creations before even seeing their pure potential in battle. ( Im a penicle and Paper RPG player too )

All I can say is "What truely goes through the mind of a tyranid who will be abosrbed back into the hive mind."

About the Inquisistor. Does he have henchmen? And does he use the services of Grey Knights?

As for the chaos cloak. The cloak will in my opionion make him look more sinister and evil. Remember that Inquisitors are some of the most powerfull characters in the Imperium. (See him over there? Thats Inquisitor Dankin. He did Exterminatus on the ex-wife of brother captain Stahl.) They would easily kill thousands of innocents just to kill a single heretic, xeno or daemon. Remember their motto: "Innocence proves NOTHING!" They are the darkest side of the Imperium alongside the Unforgiven chapters (Dark Angels, Angels Vigilante etc.) and the 13th Space Wolves Company.

Errr...

I think its better not to begin with the old "Lion and Wolf" feud. Some people can take this too serious (Trust me, I've seen guys get in a fistfight over this...) I've named the 13th Comapny besides the unforgiven because these two legions are the most feared/hated/loathed/inspected by the Inquisition. One legion had Marines turning traitor and the other had a uncontrolled mutation (Space Wolves call the gene CANIS HELIX).

The Dark Angels secrets are known by some high level Inquisitors lords (and some say even the Emperor himself knows!), but are tolerated. The 13th Company has been declared Excomite Traitoris by the Inquisition (Because of their mutations and the fact that they have resided in the Eye of Terror for ten millenia.) Though they save outposts and kill the traitors, the mutations are seen as a mark of heresy. Though the extremist factions of the Inquisition wish to harness the powers of the 13th Legion. (Though extremsists are most likely also declared Traitor.)

Hence I repeat this: THERE ARE NO GOOD GUYS IN THE 40K UNIVERSE.

Each race has dirty hands, no exclusions!

Examples:
+ The Eldar have given birth to Slanesh and Dark Eldar.
+ Humanity is extremely facist when it comes to tolerating an alien, mutant or daemon.
+ Some Space Marine legions have a dark past or flawed gene seed, making them questionable in their loyalty, even when contacting pure chapters.
+ The Imperial Guard is know for its cowardice, bad tactics and many defeats.
+ The Orks kill for fun, thus pleasuring Khorne (It doesn't matter whom's blood flows as long as it flows!).
+ The Tau are naïve as they THINK that THEY can change the universe into a betterplace by letting loose canniballs (Kroot). Chaos? Go figure, they commit attrocities against races that are unspeakable of.
+ The Tyranids... Their motives are unknown to me, all I can think off is that they wish to be the perfect beings by assimilating other species and evolving further and further.

As for the banner. Six armies would be a bit too much. Two would be more then enough. Let Space Marines fight Orks or Chaos Space Marines.

Until then,

Peace, prosperity and something else I can't remember...

Info on the tyranids. The Tyranids wish only to conquer and consume. All other beings intellegent or not are their cattle and their Evolution takes place because of the "Bio-Mass" Inside each creature. The Hive Mind it's self is their one and only leader with tyrants and warrior are 2nd and 3rd in command they are never absorbed back into the hive mind because of their prowess and experiance. Some other heavy supports have been known to never go back into the hive mind such as The Red Terror and Old one eye because they prove to valuable to just reabsorb.

Contrary to most thinking they are just stupid creatures they actually seek out the best prey to take the bio-mass from. When ever a new life form is encountered the first strike is actually to see how much potential the creatures have and to study how they fight note that this is just a small wave as so many marines have seen "The Calm before the storm" Sort of speek.

The tyranids take much joy in fighting the marines because of their gene seed just one of these could streangthen the hive in uncanny ways.

To show how much they care about the Genetics of the hive they rarely go after ork because of their low intellegence. it would make the hive impure.

This is how my hive works so I don't know exactly how other hive minds through out the known universe work.

My hive mind has heard interesting things from marines and seeks to learn more about their leader.

Well When I think of Warhammer I of course think of my hive mind.

But as a image I would say a planet slowly being consumed by the tyranids and a battle field where the land is full of blast scaring many dead tyranids and A chapter of the imperium. One lone Commander is left and he is fighting off 2 Guants tooth and nail style with a combat knife as his only weapon.

or perhapes a lone space marine raiseing the flag of the imperium while his breathren duke it out with tyranids.

A row of characters would do nicely.

Example:
Marneus Calgar - Mag Urug Thraka - Old One Eye - Commander Far Sight - Maugan Ra - Lord Commander Solar Macharius - Abaddon the Despoiler - Asdrubael Vect

This way you have the greatest leaders of 40K in a round up (Except for the 'nid. But he's cool looking.) of each race (excluding the Sisters of Battle, Daemonhunters and necrons)

And some Imperial Guard humour! This is a print from the second Ork Invasion of Armageddon. It's one of those Citizens Beware things. But this one is fun! (Warning large file!) This is from the Battle for Armageddon background book. All copyrights go to Games Workshop. They won't sue me because I'm too petty!

The Necrons are actually several years old (If I'm correct they started out six years ago as a crappy armylist with one HQ, troops, fast attack and heavy support choice. The gave away a Necron warrior with each WD of a certain issue. Pretty pathetic if you ask me!) and the recent codex is a revamped and breathed back to life version with more evil crap! Evil I say! Inquisitors and Techpriests! Rise and smite the false image of the Omnissiah!

Though the Sisters of Battle are part of the Imperium, so are the Space Mariens and Imperial Guard. The reason of exluding them is that they do not have any special characters (They don't even have an offical codex, just a Chapter Approved article, I miss those girls... They always bossted the morale of my troops when they entered the play.) and thought the Daemonhunters have heroes (Stern and uhm... stupid silly foreign name: Torquemada Coteaz.) including them would show a more pro-imperial side. Besides, the Daemonhunters are noobs and new to the game :P

+++

As for your Inquisitor Sivak. What kind of retinue does he use? (If any?) And is he an puritan or a radical? That would make it easier to know if there is a need for Grey Knight sprites :)

Also, does he have any problems with doing a little Exterminatus on a Imperial planet that has been tainted?

k, now to state all my secondary objectives,

1) i do not have a crapload of wargear
2) blowing shit away is my hobby >: )

Storyline suggestions? Or just a cool idea for a single comic? Let me hear it.

i'd enjoy seeing a few of u fight along side each other

Idea for comical relief? A comic can't be all serious and blood and gore, it also needs some comical relief once in a while

Marine a: LOOKOUT A TYRANID!!!!
marine b:(fires in dierection A pointed) what where?!?!?!
marine b: haha made u look

also made a crapy story i made in an hour.i'll post it in a few min.also i have no idea where it takes place.just wrote it.so if u don't like it oh well.

-=Pissed and set to kill=- Prt 1

I looked up at the sky and cursed silently. It had been one weeek
scince Sgt.Stickland bit the dust from the Tyranids attack
on our outpost, and ever scince i have realy hated my job. Not
that I knew him, but on suh short notice, I was put in charge of his
scouting squad....yay......I looked around at the dirt covered and, there
where a few clumps of half dead bushs, that was about it.Not particuarly my favorite fighting ground, but was better than some I had been on. I looked back at the squad, there where seve of us including me. WE all had bolt weapons 'cept Rivers and Collins. Our two snipers.
In this extreme heat no one had bothered to wear a helmet.

We had been walking for around 30 min, when i heard one come up behind me, "Sergeant, sir?".I turned enough to see it was the newest member of the outpost, Henderson."Yes what is it?" he seemed a little uneasy, but with the Tyranid attack last week, we all where."I was hoping you could tell me of the battle last week?".I turned away and we kept walking.After awhile i said,"Marines died, Tyranids died, and i scratched my new helmet.".I saw Jackson smile, "Something funny?".
He aimed his bolter at me,"Pow.".I couldn't help but smile, last week in the heat of the battle, he poped around the corner yelling, and we both shot at each other.Fourtunatly, where both out of amunition.The other men seemed confused, but i just kept walking and they followed.

After awhile, Henderson took the liberty of asking where i got my bolt pistol."It was a gift. Got it custom made when i was promoted to Sergeant.".He asked how i got promoted, but i didn't answer.

After ten min he spoke up..again.."Sgt O'Brien?!?!?". I sighed, I just wanted to sweat in peace,"Just call me Sergeant, and what is it now?Why can't you keep quite like the others??".I turned to him and noticed he seemed frantic."Sir, I see something over by the bushs at ur 2.".I turned.Indeed there was movement, i quickly signaled for everyone to get down.I motioned for Collins and Rivers to scope it out.Collins answered, "Two Tyranids, guants.".Rivers nodded. Quitely, i said, "Henderson, let's see if you shoot as well as you talk.". He got on one knee and aimed, he was a little unsure of himself. I got next to him "Fire damnit, we ain't got all day.". Blam,Blam,Blam.I saw one drop. The other turned and broke into a straight rush, "FIRE!".Collins and Rivers connected with its head, it was down.

-=PART 2=-(it was to long for one post)

I nodded, satisfied,"Alright, we're heading back now.". I heard Jackson and Patterson fire, Jackson yelled, "WE GOT COMPANY!!(BLAM BLAM) DIE!!!!". I spun around and saw and opened fire on a small horde of charging guants.One fell, one started limping."REPENT VILE SCUM!" at this point everyone was firing, i couldn't count exactly how many there where, maybe 20 at most.A few more fell, they where getting closer.Smithers yelled out something, I could't make out till i heard again, "Gargoyles!!". I aimed and fired ,"Collins, Rivers!". Two down, one more, it was breaking into a dive.BLAM BLAM BLAM!!It smashed into the ground, i turned and saw Jackson, he quickly smiled then firred at the approaching guants. Henderson was firing like mad, his clip almost empty. I helped him down 3 then yelled, "RELOAD!". Smithers was firing his bolt pistol, i saw one drop, then three more, curtousy of Collins, Rivers, and Jackson.They where getting to close.I sprayed all i had left in my clip. ten grabbed my knife and stode firm.One lunged for me, and i lunged right back.My knife carved straight into itz flesh and i threw it aside.There was a gory hole where its stomach used to be. Smithers shot it in the head, "Just in case Sergeant.". I nodded and drew my pistol just as one slammed into Henderson. I flipped around and fell to one knee!BLAM BLAM BLAM! I had blasted it befor it could tear him to peicies, luckily its claws had just barely missed his head. I turned around to see the last few drop dead.

It had been over just as soon as it had started.We where all breathing hard. I looked over to see everyone intact somehow. I smiled as i looked down at Henderson, his whole face was covered in Tyranid blood and he was in a bit of a shock.I helped him up, "Not gonna forget that soon, good job boys.".Henderson moaned a little, " I think my leg is broken sir."."Let me see." Smithers, who had some training in medicine, declared it was broken, but not badly."Jackson, Smithers, help him get back to the outpost.We'd better get back befor more show up." i turned and started back.Patterson groaned, "God i hate these things.". Henderson smiled, "I agree."."We all hate em. Hopefully we'll get lucky next time as well.' i said."Next time?" Henderson looked like he'd throw up. I smiled and patted him on the back, "You think that was intense? You ain't seen shit.". And with that we all walked back silently

well that's it, hope u liked it.i'd apreciate input. if u liked it i'll probably post it on my site

A good and entertaining story. Only some typos, but a good story nonetheless. Please do post it on your site. (What chapter are the scouts from? Sounds a bit too curious, but it helps me form a picture in my head of the action.)

A new threat.

As I was reading through our new orders I came across something interesting, Just a few days ago our whole military group on the Planet Forgaris had been totaly and utterly wiped out only 3 survived to tell about it.

I personally don't see how this could of happened, Yeah it was a hostile planet but there wasn't anything there that could take em out heck the closet tyranid hive fleet was about 3 light years away. In the note from one of the officers it only said "So loud...the tremors were starting." I found that kinda weird...what would sismec activity have to do with them being wiped out.

my orders were simple take my troop along with a group of ultra marines to the planet to investigate. Oh joy more exploreing...

-Commander Oswald of the 135th black templar.

As the ship landed the UM were the first to jump out all gun ho...I thought to my self "Crazy bastards that one way to get yourselves killed in a heart beat."

Their commaniding officer was quiet and really didn't even speak to his men unless he really had to...made him seem heartless...even more than me.

We soon came to the outpost where the last group was stationed....it was quiet...and no signs of a battle...now things were really starting to seem weird.

This planet was tropical with many diffrent species of animal but from what I've seen so far nothing that could take us on and win. We all got into the outpost to relax from our little journy and to get away from the tropical heat outside.

The UM commander and I went our seprate ways and found suitable places for our HQ.

3 days had passed and nothing had happened but then something I remember in the reports accorded again.....we were experianceing these so called tremors.

Suddenly one of my troops busted the door in "Sir You need to come see this!" I got up from my chair and followed him outside to one of the look out posts. He handed me a pair of binoculars and I looked out and saw the unthinkable. Some how there was actually a Tyranid army on this planet, like none I had ever seen before. The gaunts had longer tails than usual with huge stingers on them...but that wasn't all I found the Tyrant and he was the most horrindus of them all. Yeah he was huge they always are but this one had Large wings sprouting from it's back and on the top of his head he had a set of horns he even had the same tail as the guants.....They knew we were here but oddly enough they were not attacking us, Thats when I noticed that all the gaunts and warriors were slamming their tails on the ground as hard as they could....Im guessing it was some kind of moral thing, but I now knew what that officer was speaking off in his report. He wasn't talking about sismec activity he was talking about these freaks! The ground was shakeing slightly from their little pounding efforts, I knew there would be a battle eventually but when and where I didn't know but I'll tell ya one thing... It wont be pretty...

to be continued.

Yo, yo, Yo 40kay peoples, and the great brookman, i have some tasty news. i said i wasn't gonna make anymore warhammer based films, but i thought, Hell if i wont do it than no one will, so as no one bothered to e-mail about acting oppurtunities for Warhammer war reports, my production team put it on hold, and began a new game. Its a follow up to Blood bowl X, except this time the game actually works! (i promise, i was playing it earlier!) it needs 2 more levels and some cut scenes, but its pretty much done. I'm on holiday as off saturday, but if we finish it before then, we'll put it on!

Thanx people, and sit tight. your gonna like this one!

All the best,

Seedy productions

Well, looks like we're getting a lot more activity!

As per the cloak, I just like the way it looks. And it does give that sinister feel that every Inquisitor wants.

Whoop! My checklist for the comic.

The cast thus far:

Main cast. (These characters will play an important part in the storylines and plot advances. I've also taken the liberty of putting the name of the characters creator behind it.)
Lord Commander Arsh (BoltgunClock)
Lord Clawmane (-Sphere-)
Veteran Sergeant O'Brien (-Mole-)
Inquisitor Sivak (Sivak)
Hive Fleet T-1079 (Sumireyu)
Lieutenant Brookman (Lieutenant_Brookman)

Side cast. (Mostly secondairy characters that contribute to a storyline or killed off and seen in flashback's or recountings of reports and stories.)
As of yet, this is still largely open, suggestions would be great for names and colourful characters with their gear that play part in this story line.

Armies involved.
Space Marines
Imperial Guard
Inquisition (Malleus and Xenos)
Sisters of Battle
Chaos (Lost and the Damned and traitor marines)
Tau (Of a break away faction)
Dark Eldar
Orks (I really needed a bit of WAAAGH! in the comic)
Imperial Navy
Tyranids

Vehicles. (Of these vehicles I am very very certain that these will be used. So, if your character uses a special vehicle, let me know and I'll update this list. And yes, I know tha the races use more vehicles, I just haven't found a use for thsoe yet and are not stated as of yet. Until I can find a function for them I'll use them and file them down.)

+++ Space Marines +++
Thunderhawk
Land Raider
Rhino Mk. II
Land Speeder Typhoon
Dreadnought
Dreadnought Furioso

+++ Imperial Guard +++
Chimera
Leman Russ
Leman Russ Exterminator
Basilisk
Griffon
Hellhound
Sentinel

+++ Imperial Navy +++
Lightning
Vulture Gunship
Valkyrie Dropship

+++ Tau +++
XV-8 Crisissuit
Hammerhead Tank
Devilfish APC

+++ Chaos +++
Defiler
Corrupted Predator
Corrupted Land Raider

+++ Sisters of Battle +++
Immolator
Rhino Mk. II
Exorcist

+++ Dark Eldar +++
Raider
Jetbike

+++ Custom rides +++
Imperial Command Vehicle
Jetbike
Retro fitted jumppacks with shiney bitz!

Locations. (There are several locations that will be backgound of the conflicts and stories. Again, if you've got an idea for a cool location, give me a description and I'll implent it.)

Number of subplots. (The main storyline will be filled with minor adventures and missions, some of which can help advance the main storyline in itself)
13 - Which I'm keeping secret for now :P

The way things are going it all looks good and I think I


Ah great, just what we need!

The fact that my hive will be a main part of this comic is a honor as for my hive fleet I have changed their color scheme (Lack of paint) I have changed them to goblin green and Bubonic brown...gives em that real disgusting look, I am currently painting my Tyrant (I finished the main look of him last night woo hoo just need wings and green stuff for tail)

When Im done with my Tyrant as he is now I'll snake my bro's web cam and take a pic of the ugly mug and post it here.

thank u

Only some typos, but a good story nonetheless.

that was because i wrote it in wordpad then copyed it, sum letters where cut off to make it fit >: |

(What chapter are the scouts from? Sounds a bit too curious, but it helps me form a picture in my head of the action.)

do u mean like Dark Angels or inner chapter of Dark Angels? i was just gonna say Dark Angels, but maybe just i was from Dark Angels....never wrote story befor and kinda hard for me to figure out exactly if my story would be accurate if the all where Dark Angels, maybe sum should have been a different space marine chapter.....I'M SO CONFUSSED!!!

Well, besides ideas stories are also welcome, if you'd like you can write a story as a sort of introduction to the character for the comic. In it the character will be introduced, a bit of his mind shown and his combat prowess and a means by which he is involved in the main storyline, which is as of know still unknown. (The threat of the hivefleet will be one of the larger sidestories that keeps looping in and out of the storyline.) These "introductionairy" stories are subplots and will present the characters that will help and advance the main story line in itself.

I'll post an example of this lateron to give ya'll an idea.

But as I said before, your input is much wanted as I cannot predict how your character reacts to certain situations (Or worse, how an entire Tyranid terror army thinks and kills its enemy.) and their enviroment.

I.E. If you encounter a daemon summoning ritual and the daemonvessel is a innocent young woman, what would YOU do?

In my case (As I'm a weak fool when it comes to ladies): I'd try to stop the ritual and rescue the lady, failing that I'll also have to battle the daemon itself, which is a slim chance of winning as a guardsman.

But, I'll try to have a examplairy story up tonight (I'm European and its morning were I'm typing this) if I'm not too tired.

I didn't feel like doing much today, so I'll post a something something and start on a site for my project and my army.

Please note that these two guys are scanned in, and not digitalized with a nifty camera. Both are veteran sergeants of my 13th rifles. The one on the left is commander of the 5th squad of the first platoon and wears the normal uniform issued to the entire army. The one on the right wears an ad-hoc uniform, carries an officers issued bolt pistol and leads the 1st squad of second platoon. Both carry grenades and their helmet on their belt. Please note these two things! I am not a frickin' Heavy Metal painter. I enjoy the way I painted these guys and don't use any fancy dry-brush, in-wash or any of those expensive techniques. I just paint them flatly, this makes them functional yet playable with and it suits me fine. Secondly, both these guys aren't finished yet. Lefty his sword and grenades need a paintjob, while righty needs some facial deatail, a painted canteen and a painted belt.

As for my site
