    I'm damn curious. What would happen if a Pariah or psychic null entered the void..? Like Hive tyrants and their shadow in the warp thingy. I mean... They're anti void... Division by zero..?

    I don't think they can, kinda like the tau OR it would just nullify any and all influence the warp has. Repel daemons and such.

    Anyone here an Ork player? What do colors mean again. I think red means they go faster, but what is yellow... bigger explosions/more dakka?

    The Void, Shadow of the Warp thing isn't what Paraiahs do. Pariahs and Nulls have no soul, they are just not there for Psykers, the antithesis of everything a Psyker is, psyker bane, etc. The Shadow in the Warp isn't that though, its because the Hive Mind communicates telepathically, and because there are so many creatures in the Nid Swarm, and there all part of the Hive Mind, it blocks out the warp, like white noise basically. Because of this, and since there has been records of Pariahs that have been "burned out" by a psychic force massive enough, i'd imagine that the Pariah would either get burned out, and become human, and then get nommed, or if they were sufficiently powerful enough, they might actually turn the tide against the nids, think about it, anything that isn't a Synapse creature that wandered into there null field would be outside of the influence of the hive mind, so they revert to there animal instincts, and become much easier to kill. Don't know what would happen if a Synapse creature went into the Null Field though.

    That cleared things up a wee bit. Lexicanum article about it also helps i found...
    What general should I paint for my Imperial fists army? Thinking of Lysander. then building it around focusing on a siege like unit(rather strange for an army that is master of defence... but... If they know the one thing, surely they know the other) Give them a vindicator with that big cannon etc.
    But yeah, what general?

    Just do Lysander, or a regular captain. You can deck him out in Terminator armour if you feel like doing a bit of conversion. Command Squads aren't really worth it. Or you can take any other HQs, like Vulkan, paint him in IF colors, and give him a new name while still using his rules. That's what ima do later on.

    Found it:

    "Red: "Red wunz go fasta'!"

    Orange: ? (I've seen grot armies this color.)

    Yellow: Explosives painted yellow are more... explody.

    Green: ? (I would think there'd be one, but I haven't seen any.)

    Blue: Lucky.

    Purple: Sneaky/cunning. (I'm not quite sure about this one. Can anyone confirm with a source? Mine was less than trustworthy.)

    Black: 'Ard. (As with the purple, my source is somewhat dubious.)"

    Red is faster, yellow is more dakka, blue is lucky (that's why feral orks and Snakebites usually have blue runes or paintings on themselves for protection), and purple is sneaky color because "no one ever saw a purple army". Not sure if there's anything else about other colors.

    You know, I think that if they made a 40K RTS like Halo Wars, that had all the units from the board game, I think it would work... Like you get resources from supply pads attached to your main base and stuff

    To put the whole Pariah versus Shadow of the Warp thing more succintly (do apologise for my last explanation, i'd only just woke up), imagine that humans as they appear in the warp are tiny sparks, and psykers are huge bonfires. A Pariah is like a vacuum, drawing the fire into it and killing it, it has nothing to use up, no oxygen so to speak, thats why Pariahs still affect normal humans, just not on the same level as Psykers. Now imagine that the Hive Mind is the biggest fire out of all of them, so when that turns up, it just uses all the oxygen around it, killing off the smaller fires, leaving them nothing to use up. I suppose if there were enough Pariahs gathered together to create a big enough "vacuum" then they could possible shut out the entire Hive Mind, but that'd have to be a buttload of Pariahs.

    All we can do, ultimately, is speculate.
    Any suggestions to the construction of a Imperial Fists army?

    Lots of Ordinance, Vidicators and heavy weapon squads.

    Imperial Fists are masters of siege warfare.

    So jump packs for scaling walls, plenty vindicators, great. Starting to get an idea what I want for siege. Have a mate that might paint some Iron Warriors... WOuld be funny to see the roles reversed and paint a scenario...

    I love it. He doesn't know what he is doing 'til he is well within it's grasp. Only thing that got to me was Lorgar's pains as he was chastised by The Emperor.

    " Road to hell is paved with good intentions" He believed himself too intelligent to be tricked almost.

    Aye I suppose that phrase fits perfectly into his situation, I really liked his character though, probably competing for one of my favourite primarchs now.
