[00:18:14] <Bronzdragon> hai nine
[00:18:29] <nine> Hello Bronzdragon .
[00:18:43] <nine> You shan't freak me out this time with your call of sharkl
[00:18:46] <nine> shark.*
[00:18:52] <nine> FROZEN FINGERS MAKE FROZEN TYPING.
[00:19:03] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[00:19:06] <Bronzdragon> Why did you freeze your fingers?
[00:22:06] <nine> Because the room's not yet warmed up.
[00:22:38] <Bronzdragon> Warm your room harder
[00:22:40] <Bronzdragon> Fart a bit, maybe?
[00:23:19] <nine> That's not going to warm the room.
[00:23:26] <nine> I have my radiator warming up.
[00:23:32] <nine> But it'll take more than 10 minutes.
[00:23:33] <Robobuntoo> You can't than ten minutes!
[00:25:23] <Bronzdragon> See, Robobuntoo thinks that is too much!
[00:35:25] <nine> http://24.media.tumblr.com
[00:35:37] <nine> Who da fuck put the sprinkles on t hose.
[00:35:38] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[00:35:41] <nine> SERIOUSLY.
[00:35:49] <nine> How can you fail so fucking hard.
[00:35:50] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[00:36:20] <Bronzdragon> ...
[00:36:35] <Bronzdragon> I think the reason the sprinkes are there is so you can hold them
[00:36:43] <Bronzdragon> without melting chocolate all over your fingers
[00:36:47] <nine> Wow.
[00:36:56] <nine> Over 4k people are watching someone stream Runescape.
[00:36:56] <Bronzdragon> Yeah
[00:37:01] <Bronzdragon> Wait, really?
[00:37:05] <nine> Yeah what?
[00:37:07] <nine> And yes.
[00:37:08] <nine> REALLY.
[00:37:12] <nine> http://www.twitch.tv
[00:37:15] <nine> RIGHT AFTER PAX.
[00:37:43] <nine> Oh, PAX is now third.
[00:38:34] <Bronzdragon> =O
[00:40:33] <nine> Oh lawd. 700 people are watching three Brits play Terraria.
[00:40:59] <Bronzdragon> How Brittish are they?
[00:41:14] <Bronzdragon> On a scale from 1 to "oi guv!"
[00:41:24] <nine> Iunno.
[00:41:41] <nine> http://www.twitch.tv You tell me.
[00:44:28] <nine> Good god, there's 10k people watching Runescape apparently.

[04:55:38] <nine> I am not the replacement of Bronz, I'm more awesome.
[04:56:29] <aria> Can you do dragon-things as well?
[05:32:11] <nine> He can't.
[05:32:34] <aria> Sure he can, he's a dragon. They do dragon things by default
[05:32:36] <aria> Hence the name
[05:34:00] <aria> http://youtu.be
[05:35:56] <nine> He's not a dragon.
[05:36:04] <nine> It's a ruse.

[05:58:12] <nine> “The thing about BitTorrent is that it’s very efficient at dividing large files up into small pieces and assembling them very quickly on the user’s computer. For film and television it’s by far the best way to get what you want, if you’re interested in that,”
[05:58:21] <nine> How does that even make sense.

[12:49:04] <Bronzdragon> Hey guys
[12:49:18] <Bronzdragon> how flows the goes?
[12:58:14] -!- Apsup has quit [Ping timeout]
[13:14:29] <Cybylt> Getting me some Duramboros S armor in 3U
[13:14:39] <Cybylt> I may be a bit absorbed in the game
[13:14:46] <Bronzdragon> Nah
[13:14:53] <Bronzdragon> You're fine
[13:14:56] <Cybylt> with the occasional burst of looking into 40k things
[13:15:06] <Cybylt> excited about the tau codex coming out before summer
[13:15:13] <Cybylt> and the XV104 Riptide
[13:15:24] <Bronzdragon> I don't know what those words mean
[13:15:36] <Cybylt> I want to know if it'll be a new heavy support or HQ/Elite
[13:15:41] <Cybylt> I'm hoping support
[13:15:54] <Cybylt> codex = the army rulebook and guide
[13:16:14] <Cybylt> also includes every unit, army build style, and weapons available to that army
[13:16:16] <Cybylt> well, most
[13:16:36] <Cybylt> Tau codex kinda skims on what you can set as the auxilliary
[13:16:54] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[13:16:57] <Cybylt> http://1.bp.blogspot.com
[13:16:58] <Bronzdragon> sounds really cool, yeah
[13:17:02] <Cybylt> that's the 104
[13:17:15] <Bronzdragon> =O
[13:17:28] <Cybylt> with... sweet jesus I never noticed the weapons before
[13:17:38] <Bronzdragon> =P
[13:17:47] <Bronzdragon> But those are like, one of the coolest parts!
[13:17:49] <Cybylt> a burst cannon with twin plasma rifles, and a shield
[13:18:08] <Cybylt> it also appears to have an extended drone antenna on it's weapon arm
[13:18:20] <Cybylt> and a shield/camouflage generator
[13:18:24] <Cybylt> on it's left arm
[13:18:43] <Cybylt> the back has two missile pods which look comically small on its massive frame
[13:19:02] <Cybylt> http://tykensrift.files.wordpress.com
[13:19:15] <Cybylt> judging by that picture, the 104 is about 5 inches tall
[13:19:22] <Cybylt> which I think makes it not so much of a miniature
[13:19:43] <Bronzdragon> it's more of an -ature
[13:20:09] <Cybylt> I like the feets on tau suits, probably because they don't look like feets
[13:20:15] <Cybylt> though to tau they do I guess
[13:20:19] <Cybylt> because tau have hooves
[13:21:48] <Bronzdragon> I guess..
[13:22:01] <Cybylt> I like it more because it means I don't have to import from forge world(which is only in the UK) for more customizable bits
[13:22:14] <Cybylt> by it I mean the new codex in general
[13:22:25] <Cybylt> http://www.forgeworld.co.uk
[13:22:29] <Cybylt> they have some sweet stuff
[13:22:39] <Cybylt> but even by 40k standards their prices are ridiculous
[13:22:58] <Cybylt> http://www.forgeworld.co.uk
[13:23:02] <Cybylt> I did get this guy though
[13:23:21] <Cybylt> I wanted to celebrate getting a big enough army for a unique character commander by getting that
[13:23:30] <Cybylt> and then I found out resin is a bitch to work with
[13:23:39] <Bronzdragon> Oh noes!
[13:24:10] <Cybylt> you have to soak it in warm soap water for like an hour so the oils in it don't make paint peel and chip
[13:24:21] <Cybylt> you have to sand the parts you want to glue
[13:24:37] <Cybylt> super glue and plastic glue don't work particularly well with it
[13:24:49] <Bronzdragon> That sounds like fun....
[13:24:55] <Cybylt> yeah
[13:25:19] <Cybylt> Games Workshop started doing resin instead of metal models once they made one that didn't have those issues
[13:25:24] <Cybylt> they call it the Finecast line
[13:25:31] <Cybylt> and are assholes with it
[13:25:49] <Cybylt> it costs them less to make the models than it used to... and they increased the price
[13:26:31] <Cybylt> but now that 3D printing is getting cheaper people are starting to buy one model then print the sprues
[13:27:12] <Bronzdragon> yeah, seems like a crappy deal for all parties involved
[13:27:18] <Cybylt> technically illegal for tournaments and stuff but there's no way to tell after they've been painted so there's nothing they can do about it
[13:28:10] <Cybylt> Death Korps of Krieg make me want to do an Imperial Guard army...
[13:28:26] <Cybylt> in short they're a WW1 German army
[13:28:28] <Cybylt> but in 40k
[13:28:47] <Cybylt> just thousands of dour men in trench coats and gas masks
[13:29:09] <Bronzdragon> That does sound pretty cool
[13:29:18] <Bronzdragon> though it's hard to find any 40k dude that is 'lame'
[13:29:25] <Cybylt> http://www.forgeworld.co.uk
[13:29:34] <Cybylt> plus they have the most badass looking commisars
[13:29:54] <Cybylt> http://www.forgeworld.co.uk
[13:30:33] <Cybylt> http://www.forgeworld.co.uk
[13:30:40] <Bronzdragon> True... they do
[13:30:41] <Cybylt> I like how they made a heavy bolter look old
[13:30:58] <Cybylt> like, this looks like it could be from a WW1 miniatures game
[13:31:01] <Bronzdragon> Indeed, I would want an army like this.
[13:32:33] <Cybylt> there's another IG army that's basically entirely made up of Rambo
[13:33:37] <Bronzdragon> See, I don't think that would actually help
[13:33:44] <Bronzdragon> Unless it's one character...
[13:34:00] <Cybylt> nope, thousands
[13:34:18] <Cybylt> Cadian are the basic, then most of the others have a theme
[13:35:41] <Bronzdragon> I dunno, they look like generic space marines (in the sense of Sci-fi, not 40K space marines)
[13:35:54] <Cybylt> Cadians do
[13:36:04] <Cybylt> and they die in the thousands
[13:36:34] <Cybylt> there's even a commisar with a special ability called "Send in the next wave" which lets you recycle "dead" miniatures
[13:36:41] <Bronzdragon> Why, on the games workshop website, are "The Black Library, Forge world and Investor Relations" between Japan, France and Australia?
[13:36:43] <Cybylt> because they are more about outnumbering than the nids
[13:36:52] <Cybylt> I don't know
[13:37:54] <Cybylt> I want to get my friend a nurgle demon since she's decided to start playing as them soon-ish, but allt he models of them look dated
[13:38:30] <Cybylt> and all the new chaos stuff is made for Warhammer fantasy
[13:40:21] <Cybylt> She was running Necron since she was 12 but is put off by their retcon
[13:40:30] <Bronzdragon> Did I mention I also have a Games Workshop army?
[13:40:37] <Cybylt> You have not
[13:40:38] <Bronzdragon> They're fromt he Lord of the Rings line though
[13:40:41] <Cybylt> what do you play?
[13:40:42] <Cybylt> ah
[13:40:47] <Cybylt> what do you play?
[13:40:52] <Bronzdragon> I don't play them... ever.
[13:40:54] <Cybylt> I don't even know the armies in that
[13:40:55] <Bronzdragon> Oh, it's a mixed bag
[13:41:00] <Cybylt> ah
[13:41:01] <Bronzdragon> Basically every part
[13:41:13] <Cybylt> I haven't had an actual game yet
[13:41:21] <Cybylt> I have no means of getting myself to a hobby shop
[13:41:31] <Cybylt> and it's been too cold to prime my newer units
[13:41:31] <Bronzdragon> Basically,t he way it goes is, there was a magazine that had a couple of models with it every month
[13:41:37] <Bronzdragon> And my parents subscribed me to it
[13:41:40] <Cybylt> Nice
[13:41:43] <Bronzdragon> So now I have a bunch.
[13:42:03] <Cybylt> Last year my friend was considering tyranids
[13:42:18] <Bronzdragon> If I were to build an actual army by buying, I'd probably go Rohan or Uruk hai
[13:42:22] <Bronzdragon> What's a Tyranid?
[13:42:48] <Bronzdragon> Are these... space dinosaurs?
[13:42:57] <Cybylt> Tyranids are the things blizzard ripped off to make the zerg
[13:42:57] <Bronzdragon> Actually, closer to the Aliens from Alien
[13:43:06] <Cybylt> and they were based on xenomorphs
[13:43:23] <Bronzdragon> I see, it does look like a mix of xenomorhps and zerg
[13:43:38] <Cybylt> zerg are a third generation knockoff
[13:43:48] <Cybylt> though the human integration thing was new
[13:43:51] <Cybylt> anyway
[13:44:12] <Cybylt> they just eat everything
[13:44:17] <Cybylt> much like xenomorphs
[13:44:25] <Cybylt> http://www.games-workshop.com
[13:44:34] <Cybylt> I got her a Mawloc for valentine's last year
[13:45:03] <Cybylt> well, it could potentially be something else, but she liked the mawloc head more
[13:45:34] <Cybylt> http://www.games-workshop.com
[13:45:41] <Cybylt> Trygon is the other thing that model kit could make
[13:46:25] <Cybylt> and as a unit it is insane because it spits armor piercing poison, can burrow under and take out light armor units and do aoe electrical blasts
[13:46:39] <Cybylt> and has 4 wounds and a high armor score
[13:46:58] <Bronzdragon> Sounds fun
[13:47:15] <Bronzdragon> I'll quickly grab some lunch, but this is interesting
[13:47:19] <Bronzdragon> brb
[13:47:40] <Cybylt> http://img.photobucket.com
[13:47:50] <Cybylt> I wanna buy one of these guys, just for the sake of having one
[13:47:55] <Cybylt> because carnifex look badass
[13:52:16] <Cybylt> http://www.games-workshop.com
[13:52:16] <Bronzdragon> Are you any good at the paiting part?
[13:52:28] <Cybylt> I think I'll get her a Herald of Nurgle for her birthday
[13:52:32] <Cybylt> I'm okay
[13:53:05] <Cybylt> I figured out drybrushing and that you have to mix some water into the paint unless you want it to be way too vivid
[13:53:09] <Cybylt> like, cartoonish
[13:53:58] <Bronzdragon> Yeah, I've had trouble with that too
[13:54:12] <Bronzdragon> And I can't figure out staining at all.
[13:58:25] <Cybylt> staining?
[13:58:36] <Bronzdragon> Not sure what it's called
[13:58:42] <Bronzdragon> Super thin paint that flows in the cracks
[13:58:43] <Bronzdragon> Washing?
[13:58:51] <Bronzdragon> I think it's called adding a wash...
[13:59:01] <Bronzdragon> To get good shadows and stuff
[13:59:07] <Cybylt> ohhh so you want to paint in the cracks and stuff
[13:59:09] <Cybylt> that's easy
[14:00:00] <Cybylt> after you apply the main layer what you do is paint in black or a darker color with a fine brush then wipe over it all with a paper towel or something
[14:00:17] <Bronzdragon> ... =P
[14:00:25] <Bronzdragon> I see, that works
[14:00:37] <Cybylt> I did that with my hammerhead tanks
[14:00:47] <Bronzdragon> I would wanna get back into paiting, but all my paints have dried out
[14:00:52] <Cybylt> they were also what I learned dryrbrush with
[14:00:57] <Bronzdragon> And new paints cost so much =(
[14:01:10] <Cybylt> GW overcharges on everything
[14:01:19] <Cybylt> but those paint pots can last you a while
[14:01:42] <Cybylt> I have a full medium case of tau miniatures and I haven't used half my paints
[14:01:55] <Bronzdragon> Well, model paint is always expensive, regardless of wether you get it from GW or not.
[14:01:58] <Cybylt> though I need to buy orange and blue sometime
[14:02:02] <Cybylt> I'm redoing my kroot
[14:02:24] <Cybylt> I'll also need a pink, and light blue
[14:02:36] <Cybylt> and yellow beak-like color
[14:02:49] <Cybylt> https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com
[14:02:50] <Cybylt> Kroot
[14:03:16] <Cybylt> and here's the color pattern I want for them
[14:03:17] <Cybylt> http://img-cache.cdn.gaiaonline.com
[14:03:23] <Cybylt> I call them Yian Kroot-Ku
[14:03:40] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[14:03:42] <Cybylt> I will, rather
[14:03:44] <Bronzdragon> Not a bad color scheme
[14:03:55] <Cybylt> everyone paints their kroot greens and browns
[14:04:03] <Cybylt> and my kroot will be 3fab5u
[14:04:14] <Cybylt> pink and blue
[14:04:27] <Cybylt> the "hair" will be the webbing coloration
[14:04:46] <Cybylt> mixing the pink and orange to get that exact color on the shells may be tough
[14:04:49] <Cybylt> but whatever
[14:05:09] <Cybylt> and I'd paint their Shapers like the http://i80.servimg.com
[14:05:10] <Robobuntoo> You can't 756px ten jpgs!
[14:05:14] <Cybylt> subspecies
[14:05:18] <Cybylt> or after Garuga
[14:05:26] <Bronzdragon> Why would you mix pink and orange, rather than red and white and yellow?
[14:05:58] <Cybylt> because to me that shell color looks like it'd come out from pink and orange
[14:06:02] <Cybylt> but I'm partially color blind
[14:06:08] <Cybylt> so I may need help with that
[14:06:37] <Cybylt> Tori had to pick out my paint pots when I said I wanted blue and green as my colors, I picked up purple
[14:06:54] <Cybylt> http://images.wikia.com
[14:07:00] <Cybylt> might be a problem if I want his colors
[14:07:28] <Bronzdragon> ... but he is purple
[14:07:31] <Bronzdragon> So you picking up purple totally works
[14:07:56] <Cybylt> but I may accidentally get blue when I pick colors for him
[14:08:23] <Bronzdragon> Hmm, send me a picture of your mix
[14:08:30] <Cybylt> I can't differentiate blues and purples, to me they're all blue just darker and ligther blue
[14:08:31] <Bronzdragon> Thoug a dark blue totally works too, for his wings at least
[14:08:46] <Bronzdragon> This purple is very close to dark blue
[14:09:47] <Cybylt> dammit, I got the paints when they were on their old sets
[14:09:52] <Cybylt> they recently changed them
[14:10:11] <Cybylt> now they have bases, shades, layer 1 and 2, dry pain, glaze, texture paints
[14:10:13] <Cybylt> it's retarded
[14:10:58] <Bronzdragon> Y'know what you need? A tiny camera that takes a 2x2 image, and analizes the color, showing you how much red, blue and yellow is in it
[14:12:59] <Cybylt> my colors are something like Temple Guard Blue and a mix of Nurgling and Camo Green
[14:14:24] <Cybylt> my drybrush color is royal blue, a really light blue that makes the Guard blue look worn by not totally gone
[14:15:51] <Cybylt> but now they have all these new colors and crap
[14:16:09] <Cybylt> of course I also have chaos black for detailing
[14:16:23] <Cybylt> and a silvery-grey for the fire warrior's pulse guns
[14:17:35] <Cybylt> I also have liquid green stuff
[14:17:39] <Cybylt> but that's not a paint
[14:17:46] <Bronzdragon> ...
[14:17:48] <Cybylt> that's... well it's liquid green stuff
[14:17:49] <Bronzdragon> then what is it?
[14:17:54] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[14:18:19] <Cybylt> green stuff is modelling putty
[14:18:39] <Bronzdragon> ... >__>
[14:18:41] <Bronzdragon> 'course
[14:18:42] <Cybylt> liquid green stuff is basically filler for tiny cracks
[14:19:18] <Cybylt> bit thicker than the paints, hardens into a clay-like consistency and then you just sand it clean
[14:19:33] <Bronzdragon> I know how modelling putty works... =P
[14:20:23] <Cybylt> alright then
[14:20:37] <Cybylt> liquid green stuff is awesome
[14:21:00] <Bronzdragon> Indeed it is.
[14:21:02] <Cybylt> mainly because I don't have to spend five minutes kneading blue and yellow clay into the proper consistency
[14:22:06] <Cybylt> hmmm
[14:22:18] <Cybylt> maybe I should try PVA glue on that resin
[14:22:23] <Cybylt> nothing else seems to work right
[14:24:34] <Bronzdragon> Have you googled what kind of glue works?
[14:25:00] <Cybylt> I have, most people suggest superglue
[14:25:24] <Cybylt> but that just left little white bubbles around the glued spot and didnt' hold particularly well
[14:29:52] <Bronzdragon> I see...
[14:29:54] <Bronzdragon> =/
[14:47:27] <Cybylt> woo, I can use my brother's Wiiu to get full online play on my 3DS
[14:51:45] <Bronzdragon> Yaaaay
[14:51:49] <Bronzdragon> Thanks brah
[15:19:53] <Cybylt> nobody's hunting what I'm after ):
[15:20:03] <Bronzdragon> oh noes!

[15:21:14] <Bronzdragon> Hai spacejam.
[15:21:27] <spacejam> hey
[15:24:58] <Cybylt> Hello
[15:27:24] -!- Apsup [Apsup!~Aleksi@hide-B4B1B39B.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[15:31:02] <Bronzdragon> Hai Apsup.
[16:14:27] <Apsup> Yo Bronz
[16:14:43] <Bronzdragon> :3
[16:49:55] <Apsup> My neck and left shoulder hurts like hell. That sucks.
[16:50:09] <Bronzdragon> What did you do? Sleep poorly?
[16:51:11] <Apsup> I don't know. It just might be my tendensy to sit on computer in unoptimal position a lot. It was in pain yesterday, but got worse today.
[16:52:32] <Bronzdragon> Do you sit turned towards the left?
[16:54:09] <Apsup> Actually, now that I think about it. Yes.
[16:54:19] <Bronzdragon> There ya go, fix that
[16:54:23] <Bronzdragon> Move your monitors, probably.
[16:55:16] <Cybylt> Get some biofreeze
[16:56:53] <Cybylt> It's a gel that helps with sores and stuff, though I have no idea where to get it aside from physical therapy establishments
[17:07:27] <Apsup> I think I know what you are talking about. Maybe if this goes too far I look into it.
[17:07:46] <Apsup> But these things usually go away in a few days. I'll just endure 'till then.
[17:16:41] <Bronzdragon> Well, don't keep doing the thing that is making you feel bad though
[17:23:14] <Cybylt> damn you crappy psp screenshot
[17:23:15] <Cybylt> http://images.wikia.com
[17:23:23] <Cybylt> the armor I'm working on
[17:23:28] <Bronzdragon> ...
[17:23:33] <Bronzdragon> I don't see the issue
[17:24:08] <Cybylt> better detailing on the 3DS version
[17:24:15] <Cybylt> though for a PSP screen, that is exceptional
[17:26:23] <Apsup> I don't think detailing will help with that armor.
[17:28:27] <Cybylt> I mean everything looks smoother, less pixelated in general
[17:28:37] <Cybylt> http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net
[17:28:40] <Cybylt> also, the one in the top left
[17:28:49] <Cybylt> the right half is the G rank armors
[17:29:09] <Apsup> No I say that armor looks like shit. Quality of the picture doesn't matter.
[17:29:10] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[17:29:23] <Cybylt> Ohhh
[17:29:40] <Cybylt> Well I like it
[17:31:04] <Apsup> That shoulder spike has gone beyond ridiculous.
[17:32:34] <Cybylt> kinda
[17:32:48] <Cybylt> and it's two fin like things and then a horn like the ones on the helm
[17:34:18] <Cybylt> I think the dumbest looking armor in MH is Ukanlos
[17:34:22] <Cybylt> or possibly Plesioth
[17:35:14] <Cybylt> http://fast1.onesite.com
[17:35:23] <Cybylt> the creature the armor I'm working on comes from
[17:36:46] -!- nine has quit [Quit: leaving]
[18:22:14] <Cybylt> Bronzdragon, you should look into the Necrons
[18:22:17] <Cybylt> they're pretty sweet
[18:22:28] <Bronzdragon> Oh?
[18:23:09] <Cybylt> well they were when they were alienzombierobots controlled by eldritch sentient stars that devoured souls
[18:23:13] <Bronzdragon> Are they just an army of General Grievous?
[18:23:19] <Cybylt> Kinda
[18:23:42] <Cybylt> also their weapons flay their enemies on an atomic level
[18:23:54] <Cybylt> http://1d4chan.org
[18:24:29] <Bronzdragon> I'm not sure what Flaying is, but it sounds bad
[18:25:17] <Cybylt> They were also pretty mysterious since they were implacable kill-machines with no will, they just did it because that's what they do.
[18:26:18] <Cybylt> The new codex was written by Matt Ward, which is apparently a really bad thing. Because now all the mystery is gone and they suddenly have personality and they retconned the eldritch gods into them being blown up by the necron billions of years ago
[18:27:47] <Cybylt> GW said it's because the old fluff gave necron players no reason to personalize their armies
[18:27:59] <Cybylt> but... that seems to be the point, so I don't get it
[18:28:16] <Bronzdragon> Indeed
[18:28:32] <Bronzdragon> So they were basically what the Borg are to Star Trek
[18:29:07] <Cybylt> now they're an alient race that was forced into the living metal by the c'tan(star gods) and are trying to rebuild their former glory
[18:29:21] <Cybylt> and their leader is trying to get them back into organic bodies
[18:29:26] <Bronzdragon> How are star gods different form normal gods?
[18:29:52] <Cybylt> Unlike most gods in 40k that come from the warp, the c'tan were literally stars
[18:30:07] <Cybylt> so they're the only ones that have physical presense in the material world
[18:30:23] <Cybylt> they're pretty much anti-warp
[18:30:59] <Cybylt> https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com
[18:31:05] <Bronzdragon> They're... scientient stars?
[18:31:10] <Cybylt> yeah
[18:31:14] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[18:31:20] <Cybylt> The one good thing that came out of the new personality
[18:31:26] <Cybylt> Trazyn the Infinite
[18:31:37] <Cybylt> also known as Trollzyn
[18:31:46] <Cybylt> and robot skeletor
[18:32:19] <Cybylt> http://1d4chan.org
[18:32:52] <Cybylt> " Basically what you'll get if you combined Doctor Doom, a Tomb King, a Bloody Magpie and the Terminator"
[18:32:58] <Bronzdragon> Okay, this makes me like 40k more
[18:34:14] <Cybylt> He sends out hundreds of body doubles across the galaxy to collect rare artefacts and things for him to horde in his tomb world home
[18:35:30] <Cybylt> When you kill him his ability is basically "lol that was my double" and he is switched with a different unit
[18:35:43] <Cybylt> which is where the Dr. Doom thing comes in
[18:36:15] <Bronzdragon> ...
[18:37:01] <Cybylt> Oh, and he is a mob destroyer
[18:37:13] <Bronzdragon> that doesn't mean anything.
[18:37:48] <Cybylt> "Whenever his empathic obliterator kills an enemy, it has a chance to kill all other enemies of the same type in the same combat"
[18:38:11] <Cybylt> basically, if you're fighting a giant mob of nids or orks, he kills one, he kills them all
[18:38:15] <Bronzdragon> That... oh my
[18:38:20] <Bronzdragon> That sucks for the other guy
[18:38:27] <Cybylt> it sucks for orks and nids
[18:38:31] <Cybylt> and imperial guard
[18:38:51] <Cybylt> not so great for Space Marines, Tau or other Necron
[18:39:49] <Cybylt> For them he has mindshackle scarabs as a potential piece of equipment
[18:40:23] <Cybylt> which makes the enemy take a save test, and if they fail they attack themselves and their teammates
[18:40:51] <Cybylt> See where Trollzyn comes in?
[18:41:25] <Cybylt> "He also has a Polish-inspired name, and uses lame pseudonyms from eastern-European mythology, which makes him a filthy treacherous Slav."
[18:41:49] <Cybylt> I thought nine might like that bit, but it looks like he's not here
[18:41:50] <Cybylt> awww
[18:43:10] <Cybylt> Oh, and for his whole collection thing, in fluff he's said he wants to collect the primarchs
[18:43:37] <Bronzdragon> uhuh?
[18:43:55] <Cybylt> The Primarchs are the sons of the God-Emperor of Man
[18:44:06] <Cybylt> and all space marines are semi-clones of them
[18:44:31] <Cybylt> he claims to have one already, and is after Guilliman, the Ultramarine Primarch
[18:46:27] <Cybylt> overall a pretty fun guy
[18:48:13] <Bronzdragon> Fun at parties, I bet
[18:52:42] <Cybylt> The Nightbringer shards are also fun to have around
[18:52:50] <Cybylt> The Nightbringer was one of the c'tan
[18:53:07] <Cybylt> it coming into being created fear of death as a concept
[18:54:13] <Bronzdragon> ... that does sound fun
[18:55:13] <Cybylt> When the necrons first awoke it, it devoured a good chunk of them and discovered living things were much tastier than star energy
[18:56:06] <Cybylt> The necrons eventually got it to stop, convincing the nightbringer that the other species would be better to eat while they could serve them
[18:58:32] <Cybylt> So they started a war with The Old Ones, these lizard-man like species that created the eldar(using rennaisance-era humans as a template or something like that) orks, and a few other things that died out.

[19:00:47] <Cybylt> and won
[19:07:47] <Cybylt> If you're wondering what Eldar are, space elves
[19:08:03] <Bronzdragon> I ... was?
[19:10:38] <Cybylt> I guess?
[19:11:38] <Cybylt> I thought eldar looked pretty cool for a while, because I had never seen one without armor
[19:12:37] <Cybylt> http://3.bp.blogspot.com
[19:14:04] <Cybylt> and then there's dark eldar which is pretty much that picture, but all spikes, black, and bdsm-y
[19:14:46] <Cybylt> harlequins are the cool ones though
[19:15:02] <Cybylt> they have a gun that fires shurikens that makes blood explosive
