some novella audio dramas are good and others less so

 

Throne of Lies less so, didnt really get the point of it

 

in a hurry this morning I threw another audio drama on my phone which brings us well into 40k and back to our main man Kharn.

 

Titled Chosen of Khorne, if the first 15 minutes is any indicator its gonna be not so good but its also Kharn so we will see.

 

After that I think Im going to push ahead with the heresy with Deathfire: Into the Ruinstorm which yay is about the stupid salamanders AGAIN but we may get some sweet ultramarine action maybe.

A goon put together an Orcish version of Chris Robbert's rambling about Star Citizen, literally the best interview ever.

 

http://tindeck.com/listen/zaapv

 

104TC: As translated into Ork.

Holy shit: Fellow Goon arkimedes just did this awesome voicework.

Q1. My mob gots weedy gits dat would make a Blood Axe look good. Dis game is gonna 'ave locks dat my boyz can't get through 'less I sayz so, right?

A1. A right krumpin' is da best sekuritee ya can 'ave, but for dem humies we got locks.

Q2. Orks is made fer rockin' and I want my ladz ta hear wut I got.

A2. No freebootin' ya git. Ya listen ta wut ya got, not wut da uvver guy has.

Q3. Dat bright fingy in da sky 'urts me eyes when I look at it. Da mek says it's got sumtin ta do wit radiashun, wutever dat is. Can I use da sun ta 'urt da uvver guy? I mean it's not exaclty krumpin' wit a choppa, but ya take wut ya can git.

>

A3. My lads say dat we've got plans ta use radiashun from bright fingys ta muck wit yer fightas and kroozers right good. Not now, ya see, but when we'ze done wit stuff.

Q4. I'm a Bad Moon and I gots lots o' teef. I'm too dumb ta fink about it, so I'z gunna ask you about da grades o' loot.

A4. You'ze a right git for wastin' my time wit dis. OF COURSE DER'S GONNA BE GOOD LOOT AND BEST LOOT! AND DA BEST LOOT WILL BE ZOGGIN' 'ARD TA FIND! Check yer noggin' and see if da doc replaced yer brain wit a squig.

Q5. I wanna haul poop.

A5. Outta all da humies, you iz da worst.

Q6. Biggest is best. Can I stuff da kroozer wit more gunz so dat I always 'ave da right dakka for da job? Da right dakka meaning MORE DAKKA.

A6. 'Ard points is 'ard points, ya can't change dem in flight. Der will be racks fer gunz and choppas and wutnot if ya wants ta grab sumtin fer a fight.

Q7. BOSS! BOSS! We found dis 'ere sim pod fingy. Can we put it on da kroozer?

A7. Good idea, glad I came up wit it!

Q8. I wanna be a squig herder. I also wanna be a mad doc. Can I be a squig doc?

A8. Squigs can be hurt, sure, but dey'z ZOGGIN PETS. Yer squig can't 'ave cyber legs no matter how much ya want it.

Q9. When I dakka, will da nature o' da world dat I'm dakkaing change how da dakka... dakkas? Like if da world is 'uge and my gun is 'eavy, will da shooty bits be 'eavy too? Bigger gunz is best, right?

A9. Da shooty bits is REAL, and dey zoggin 'URT when dey hit ya. Damage is a function o' da mass of da shooty bit as well as da speed of da shooty bit (red shooty bits go fasta). Da fiziks of da world will change da shooty bits.

Q10. When we and da ladz wanna krump sumtin ('ERE WE GO!), wuts ta prevent us from fitting da whole mob in a ship?

A10. We'ze using 2nd edition battlewagon roolz 'ere. GET ON BOARD LADZ IF YA CAN FIT YA CAN FIGHT!

Halfway through Flight of the Eisenstein (good shit so far), I'm trying to decide if I should keep going through HH based on the below flowchart but honestly not really looking forward to hearing more about how perfect Emperor's Children are in Fulgrim. Was it a good book? Should I read something else?

Read Fulgrim. It is p good. Honestly its the last book that the Emperors Children arent downright comical and Im at book 33.

 

So heres the thing about what you linked there, a LOT of those books marked books are actually novellas and included in compilations. 

 

So in order to read according to that chart, you would literally have to find the compilation the novella is contained in and read just that part. The one major exception is the Garro stuff who, after the flight of the eisenstein you may want to stick with a bit because you may find yourself attached to Nathaniel Garro which is fine but it will spoil things for you.

 

I am reading in the order found here https://en.wikipedia...e_Horus_Heresy_(novels)

 

Like I said Im 33 in with some with a few side audio dramas along the way. If you were going to shoot off in a different direction you can because the way it all works a lot of things are revisited throughout the course of the books so some skipping around is ok.

 

Honestly though, I think you kind of NEED Fulgrim, Descent of Angels and Legion because it really sets up 3 major legions that you will be hearing a good bit about and some of the nuances associated with them. I could go on about this but I wont unless you want me too.

 

Battle of the Abyss is good I thought though somewhat skippable/read later unless you know absolutely nothing about the word bearers and Ultramar.

 

Mechanicum you can skip unless you you want to get into the nitty gritty of Mars in the heresy.

 

Tales of heresy is the first compilation and while some stories are good others are meh so you can pick and choose when you get to these really.

 

Fallen Angels is another Dark Angels book and aside from the whole setup of The Fallen and one other neat plot bit its kind of skippable if you really dont care/dont like the DA and all their SPOOKY SECRET SPACE KNIGHT bullshit.

 

A Thousand Sons is a fucking must. Its great and its tragic and its just fucking amazing. Magnus did nothing wrong.

 

Nemesis is meh and totally skippabole unless you care about assasins.

 

The First Heretic aka Lorgar is actually a p nice guy. I thought it was good and it gives you a good insight to as of who they are as a legion. Also motherfucking Argel Tal.

 

 

Prospero burns is basically A Thousand Sons from the Space Wolves perspective with all the other wolf bullshit. If you like the Space Wolves you should read this because it is one of the few times you will get to read about them as a whole. I almost spoiled something but I deleted it. Again if you are a space yiff you need to read this.

 

 

Thats 12 out from where you are. Ive read about 90% of what is in your chart but in the order I linked above and nothing really sticks out to me as oh man i wish i would have read that here rather than there.

 

God speed and DEATH TO THE FALSE EMPEROR.

The HH series can be fucking painful at times but sticking with it reveals a few things.

 

Those things:

 

The emperor is an cunt

 

The Ultramarines are actually p bro

 

Roboute is the everyman primarch

 

Magnus did nothing wrong

 

The Lion is more confusing than the Alpha Legion

 

Everyone is actually Alpharius

at one point there was a lot to dislike about 40k Ultramarines though at this point a lot of that has been forgotten.

 

30k Ultramarines are all around good dudes though a bit stuffy for the most part. And man, these dudes GET FUCKED. Its tough not feeling just a wee bit bad for them at times.

 

And Roboute is like, the everyman. hes just like, a normal dude who writes a lot and has his ideas but also insecurities. Will be neat to see him in the 41st Milenninnumum.

40k Book Humble Bundle: https://www.humblebu...mer-book-bundle

 

Only they have the tiers all fucked up.

The dollar tier is a no brainer and all excellent books

8 dollars is fucking sinful for what you get for that. Legion is the only good book and while I really enjoyed it a lot of people point to that book of where shit started to go off the rails for the entire series. Mechanicum is garbage. Descent of Angels is ok I guess BUT SECRET SPOOKY SPACE KNIGHTS. Battle for the Abyss is shit as well (except for my man Moh "Big Swinging Dick" tep.

15 dollars is ok but it is borderline criminal asking you to pay for Nemesis. A Thousand Sons, Prospero Burns and The First Heretic are great though, so this tier has redemption, and either of those books is probably worth 15. Fallen Angels is more SECRET SPOOKY SPACE KNIGHT bullshit and its even worse than the first one.

The Garo dramas are descent though short.

If you are considering the 8 dollar tier just splurge for the 15 because that makes the bundle. If you have no idea what the fuck any of this even is then a dollar is where its at for 5 excellent books and a decent audio drama.

Played my first ever game of 40k Sunday, a game of Shadow War Armagedon (leaked PDF of the rules).  Sort of an X-Com style game in 40k.  The one guy there who'd actually played 40k before suggested we do things simple and avoid terrain for the first game.  This turned out to leave the guy playing tyranids as way stronger than everyone else.

 

I ran a dark eldar wych kill team.  I named my characters after Broodwar progamers.

 

Syren - Flash

Bloodbrides - Bisu, Jaedong

Wyches - Boxer, NaDa, firebathero, iloveoov

 

Fuckers got destroyed by long range nid fire.  If we'd had actual terrain (and thus cover) things would've been different.  I'd rolled the +1 attack drug, so even against nids my guys would've owned face in melee.

 

That same friend has been following info about the new proper 40K release.  Apparently they're big goal is streamlining so games take 90 minutes and not 900.  Would make the game a lot more appealing.

Yeah, we will see how this goes. Some people are losing their minds, others are waiting to lose their minds.

 

idk, if it means I can play 40k with people who have never played it before easier, then im game. I may be an ultra nerdo but not of my friends are, my kid is still small, etc..

 

Im cautiously optimistic. I dont want 40k to get sigmared, but if I could get a game going with some buddies who have never played over a few beers, id be down.

 

provided i dont have to be a loyalist punk bitch.
