Hell, we forgot about it when we covered the Compendium. Like just about everything else from the Rogue Trader era, the rules are strange and half-formed, with many interesting ideas that were soon abandoned in the 40K universe. Steve: Returning to Rogue Trader 40K is like reliving my childhood. Zack: A warm blanket of nostalgia made from catachan devils and loyalist space marines that look like dog-faced demons. Steve: Remember all the weird miniatures they released in blister packs? Wounded marines, zoats, obsolete types of powered armor.

Hell, we forgot about it when we covered the Compendium. Like just about everything else from the Rogue Trader era, the rules are strange and half-formed, with many interesting ideas that were soon abandoned in the 40K universe. Steve: Returning to Rogue Trader 40K is like reliving my childhood. Zack: A warm blanket of nostalgia made from catachan devils and loyalist space marines that look like dog-faced demons.
Steve: Remember all the weird miniatures they released in blister packs? Wounded marines, zoats, obsolete types of powered armor. It was great. Zack: Not really. Steve: Oh, I never had this one. Zack: Reminds me of a certain profound tweet by Neil deGrasse Tyson:. Steve: Even though this was Battletech, the argument is back from Rogue Trader days. DJ Fenris Howls here for morning wolf time.
Which is cool, but only if you play Space Wolves or orks. Steve: Pretty dope logo for an ork. Good branding. Looks good. And the lettering is something called Silian Rail. Kulo has a very important call. This is how weird and silly they really were. Orks were very much into shades at this phase of 40K. Ben Roethlisberger is just being eaten away from the inside by all his misdeeds.
The Space Marines get these two charmers. Come on, feel the burn! Cleanse the xenos! And one, and two. His style is not on point. Forget about chainswords, quit being fancy and get a chainsaw. Like you said, put those Kulos on the glass. The orks have nothing on the squats. That novel was so bizarre. It was like a plot within the Imperium to have some sort of chaos tentacles everywhere and I vividly remember that at one point they went to earth and spent like a month walking through the Imperial palace and then they got to meet the emperor.
They took one event that would have been amazing in like a novel or a trilogy and spread it out over 50 novels where you get whole books about stupid side characters. I even had that Inquisitor dude. So watch out, evil. Well, you can call me Abbadon. I sell laser guns that looks like bent trombones.
I have literally never seen any of these. I feel like those weirdos on Reddit who insist Sinband was a genie in a movie called Shazam.
What even are those blue guys? I would say stuff like a field notary definitely had its day in 40K back in the early s. There were all sorts of scribes and book-havers that you could field in the game. I just want some useless dumb dude to wander around taking notes during a battle. Please support our Patreon! I know we flaked out for a while but we are back every other week now and could use the support. Zack: Did Keith know Andy? Zack: Which side was Keith on?
Steve: Unpainted was fine. Zack: The side of justice. Comments comments.
Warhammer 40,000 Oddities #1 – Chapter Approved: The Book of the Astronomican (1987)
The Astronomican is a psychic marker pen the Emprah used to mark his patch of the galaxy, which is basically all of it. The Astronomican is a device created by the God-Emperor of Mankind in preparation for the founding of the Imperium of Man. Following the Golden Age of Technology, humanity was cut off from its colony worlds due to violent Warp storms and the loss of its own beacon grid , rendering it unable to safely traverse the Warp. While the Warp storms died out around M29, it was all but impossible for Navigators to safely guide space ships through it. To solve this, the Emperor created the Astronomican, a device which acts as a psychic "lighthouse", allowing warp-travel in a 50, light year radius of Terra. The Emperor eventually planned to phase out Warp travel completely with the construction of an Imperial Webway , but one guy accidentally ruined it, which led to an immeasurable amount of rage due to Not as planned , both from Big E.
