I wouldn't be surprised if the Tau won since the Avatar of Khaine has had its *** kicked several times in the fluff.
If that does not work, try praying. Petting the machine and giving it positive motivational pep talk also helps.
If all else fails, perhaps it needs a good hit to jolt it into shape. Hence the ancient term "reboot" which likely means giving the machine a kick from your boot.
There's this old artifact from ancient humanity that connects you to a social network where you are always connected to people. According to the artifact's name, all you need to do is attach a book to your face.
Typical 40k kid. Always about the SPESS MEHREENS. Like kids with HALO or Call of Duty.
I guess you can say...
...nobody expected it.
That's the beauty of the Imperium. It is made up of several planets with several cultures but they are all united under one banner. No nationalist bickering, just humans fighting for their species.
And he's doing it with a broken sword, too!
Question: If Draigo is doomed to forever wander the Warp, how does he subsist? Where does he find food/warp dust? (Last I remember, space marines still need to eat, sleep, go to the bathroom, etc.)
Most humans don't have to wear a huge, mechanized suit to fight melee and can still kick ***.
Oh wait, wrong movie...
Do Tau have energy shields in 40k? Because when I look at this, i think of the Bubble Shield from HALO 3.
Official Drop Song: "It's Raining Men"
"Why do we need to design a space station the same way as a castle when there technically is no up or down in space?"
"Because **** you that's why."
As someone who adheres to a radical philosophy shared by some Inquisitors, I think an Imperium-Eldar-Tau Alliance would be beneficial.
Slaanesh: VIOLATE! RAPE! SNORT!
Is this the original? I saw the same picture but the colors and emblems were replaced with Blood Angels.
Look at the freaking ship to the left.
Remember, those things have to carry several 8-foot tall armored warriors so of course it would be big.
He means it's flipped.
Donkey Kong, anyone?
Lets see Ezio and his Assassin Brotherhood take on these Templars.

Being a commissar, he verbally ordered his legs to walk him closer.
Many people do that when starting up their car in the morning.
GOTTA PURGE'EM ALL
...your argument is invalid.
Lord Crull would be pleased.
Don't cross the streams.
I took a bolter round to the knee.
Are the clouds/lightning making angel wings from the shrine on top of the speeder?
IMMA FIRIN' MAH LAZER
War, war never changes.
Fallout 3 Super Sledge.
So much bloom.
The Iron Giant was an amnesiac Necron titan that crash-landed on Terra during the Second Millenium.
Put skulls on knees, invalidates arrows that would reduce them to guard duty because they would count as headshots.
"If you want a vision of the grim darkness of the far future, imagine an Astartes boot stamping on a Tyranid face - forever."
Looks like it's time for another "count the skulls" game!

"Take this! You'll be able to shoot fireballs with it!"
The bottled water sells it. I remember drinking chocolate milk through my gas mask at Comic Con.
Last time I checked official art, they remove their teeth when going for the tubes in mouth look.
Storm? What storm? There's a storm in this picture?
Timon and Pumba.
Just 2 random Sororitas in the back, doing nothing. Unless one of the Marines needs a sandwich.
That must have been one hell of a game of capture the flag.
There's always that one person who is looking at the camera...
I could see Fry becoming a Tau Human Auxiliary...and stealing a Firewarrior suit.
Eh...I would not hang that on my wall.
The length of the blade seems short in proportion to the length of the handle (handle of a long sword but blade of a short sword).
Also, I wish I was in that helmet's spot.
Eldar is saddened by his poor grammar and pronunciation.
"Wanna but some lho sticks?"
Psyker: "You do not want to sell me lho sticks."
"I do not want to sell you lho sticks."
Psyker: "You will report to the nearest Arbites station and turn yourself in."
"I will report to the nearest Arbites station and turn myself in."
Steampunk spider from Wild Wild West.
"Hey Humie, did you know us Greenskins excel in close quarters comb-"
"You humans stick your tongue on metal poles in freezing cold? How about on a sharp metal blade that is ON FIRE???"
A Bolter is considered SMALL ARMS???
What exactly is going on in this picture?
What chapter is he from?
What? No Sisters of Kawaii?
You mean Orks can get dumber? Or is it a placebo where they believe they are dumber because of the supposed lobotomy?
You never heard of Wyches? Like Leilith Hesperax?
I keep thinking Bale and Sindri.
Snorting blood off his knife.
Looks like Corner Cat, blocking the good bit of a picture.
Hey, let's give that Thousand Son Marine a big hand for trying.
AT-STs wish they were this badass.
Even in death I serve as a stepping stone for my comrades.
"Oh My Emperor! It came from her butt and they're actually eating it!"
Not exactly bare hands, but there's an image floating around the Net showing a female Imperial about to Falcon Punch a Chaos tank with her powerfist.
"Horus betrays the Emperor, gets killed as a result, the Emperor goes into a vegetative state, and I launch countless failed Black Crusades."
Considering what happened in the Doom games happens all the time in 40k.

Notice one of her hands is below the desk.
Macha, forever alone.
Standing in that puddle like a boss.
In the grim darkness of the far future...Tebowing is alive and well.
The enemy fails grammar as the capital I requires no dots.
Since when did Stormboyz have talon feet like Chaos Raptors?
What's up with the hearts?
And then the Astartes drops in, kicks ***, and takes all the credit.
Irk? What's an Irk?
I think they're suiting up a member of the Death Company.
His eye level is below the crest in front of him. How can he see forward?
Also, crying skull on his knee.
Inquisitor Bronislaw Czevak?
Oh, a Navigator. The only mutants tolerated by the Imperium due to their necessity to successfully travel in the Warp. They keep their third eye covered for reasons like this.
Looks like a certain Imperial Assassin was right about love on first sight.
"Farseer! What do your Eldar eyes see?"
"They're taking the Squats to the Inquisition!"
ELDAR EARS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY. THEY'RE NOT CATS.
Space Wolf Terminator and Carnifex are having a yelling contest.
That or The Great Unclean Republican.
Also, holy **** it has boobs!
ALL MY HNNNNNNNNNNNG.
"...And Brother, I Hurt People.
I'm a Force-A-Nature.
If you was from where I was from, You'd be f*cking dead.
It's not stealing if it was gifted to you.
He is angry that he is missing more of his body than Abaddon.
He no longer needs his helmet because he was promoted to sergeant.
"GET OVER HERE!"
How to get ahead in life.
That's what I was saying first time this was posted.
I blame Matt Ward....
I believe this is a reference to an event in one of the Cain books.
That's religion for you. Especially when it is backed by the state.
Solar eclipse? No problem! Light up the sky, boys!
He'd fit in well in 40k due to his overpowered Mary Sue-ness.
'CAUSE IT'S THRILLER!!! THRILLER NIGHT!
WHY ISN'T THIS IMAGE IN A RED TINT??? YOU KNOW, LIKE BLOOD!!!
"Joke's on you! I don't have a helmet for you to add to your collection!"
6th Edition sales in a nutshell.
Do the Space Hulk computer games count?
Anyway, there's also this mod:
I knew My Little Pony was Chaos-related.
What is that thing he is wielding in his right arm? Some chainsaw-leafblower combi-weapon?
Marine in question is Grimaldus btw.
Yeah it's a repost but i'd still hit that cultist and Dark Eldar...with the powerfist of an angry God Emperor.
"NO! MY POWERSWORD! GET AWAY AND GET YOUR OWN!"
I like how those helmet tubes are going directly to his mouth.
OH ****! MY HAND!
Angry Marine Chaplain?
His hair alone would classify him as a radical in the Inquisition.
Does this mean Lance Armstrong (assuming that's not him in the picture since it's so blurry) was so successful due to mutation?
This Hugh Hefner is very much a Slaaneshi cultist.
Or one small ork.
This is a repost. It is way back in the gallery.
Took his death like a champ, too.
But in the grim darkness of the far future there is only war. So they are not doing a good (enough) job.
They're fighting Orks. It would be Red Dawn if it were Tau invading.
Repost of Hector Rex.
From the book cover of "The First Heretic."
Hipster Magos. Must have unearthed an ancient tech cult known as "Apple."
I saw this image farther back in the gallery. If we're going to repost images then delete the old ones.
I wonder why this image has been reposted.
This pic has been posted before. I found it when browsing through the entire gallery.
I looked way back in the gallery and found this to be a repost.
After days of browsing this gallery (starting from the most recent pics and working back), I finally make it through almost 3 years of images. I kept a tab open for this and browsed when I found a time to. (I'm an image junkie)
That is all.
Uh...that's what Exterminatus is for.
People sure like to wear wolf skins in the 40k. (Space Wolves, Horus, etc.)
Eldar were into that Japanese stuff before the Tau. (Samurai in particular)
Was he bald before joining, too?
The writing is perfectly horizontal...even on the diagonally-facing gun.
Orks = Dakka
Chaos = Spikes
"OI! 'OU SED THEY'D BE CUPHOLDAS IN DERE WHEN YOU FINISHED!"
What's the guy on the far right doing? Where's a commissar when you need one?
Are the Guardsmen ambushing the Tau by coming out of the (hidden) trench or were the Tau attempting to ambush the Guardsmens' trench?
What is it with everyone's need to have warriors stepping on skulls in battle?
I think of Kaneda's bike from Akira, the Bat Pod in The Dark Knight, and the Brute Chopper from Halo.
And by "work something out" I mean sexual favors.
As a KotOR fan, I was disappointed when BioWare decided to go with TOR (and Mass Effect) and not give us KotOR 3.
Batou of the 41st millenium?
I'd be more concerned about those very thin prosthetic legs.
All the money and resources go to making another oversized cathedral when it could be used to improve the squalid living conditions of this polluted factory city...the Imperium has its priorities straight.
So...if the guardsman asks the commissar to be more specific with his question (like the seagull question posed to King Arthur in Monty Python and the Holy Grail), and the commissar does not know the answer, does he shoot himself?
Selena Agna from Soulstorm?
Mixing yandere anime girls into 40k?
Real reason to be a Radical Inquisitor.
I am reminded of Star Wars' Yuuzhan Vong.
Wait until Kirito hears about this...
Chaos Lord: "You fool. No man can kill me. Die now."
Priest: "I am no man."
Western vs. Japanese animation fight in the comments?
YEAH! **** READING!
Guilliman: "I hereby declare Sanguinus to be an honorary Ultramarine!"
Sanguinus: "Ugh. Not this again..."
Spoiler: Mr. Pope here ends up as Warp Spawn within the next 18 years.
We deliver in 30 years or less or it's free.
This explains every other ancient and fallen race/civilization in fiction.
I always like to count how many skulls a 40k picture has in it.
Battlecry: "TRICK OR TREAT!"
It seems the lone Tyranid lifeform is trapped between 2 large globs of biomass.
Sororita has bolter pressed against Banshee's boob.
Game logic: Ranged weapons are bad in close combat. Especially against melee weapons.
Not sure if badassified power loader or baby carrier...
Wait, if that is not the pimpmobile, what is?
***** given? The Inquisition does not know the concept of giving at all!
Deathwatch Devastator (w/ boy spotter) > Deathwatch Assault Marine > Vindicare Assassin?
And of course it had to be an Ultramarine...
What happened to the original crew of the Event Horizon pretty much, except they had no Gellar Field.
You can barely see the red lasdot coming out of the thing's back.
Aim for the head!
I recognize parts from the covers of Horus Rising and Titanicus.
Yeah, I'd be more worried about those greenskins climbing its leg.
I always wondered if a SM scout became so good at what he did, why not continue doing guerrilla/sniping tactics as a full-fledged Space Marine (rather than remaining a scout like Cyrus)? Just imagine, using hit and run tactics, camouflage, AND wearing power armor.
This is how you boycott GW.
What's up with the lightning bolt striking the ground in the distance?
I'd hate to be directly under that daemon as the cover shows marines around it.
"The Greater Good is coming to you from my bolter, alien!" - Davian Thule
"You'll never hit me! You'll never hit my tiny head! It's so tiny I got a frickin'... such a tiny li'l head!"
Looks like Black Legion is blasting off again!
About time there was a hi-def version of this picture. Looks like I was right when I thought Yarrick's hat was missing. And he has the old Power Klaw. And man that is a tall hive in the background.
Hurray for negative feelings and emotions!
I can understand a Marine going renegade or Chaos...but Tau???
I'm not saying that it was Asians...but it was Asians.
She's unattractive with those squinting eyes. Everything else is fine.
Not all sororitas have white hair, nor is it required.
The cultists never specified which throne to put the skulls under.
What type of ammo though? There's ammo that can kill several with one round.
The new Humphound Titan!
So the Emperor tried acting in the 20th-21st century? Guess it's not for him.
Judging from the uniform...isn't she Imperial Navy?
Doesn't the Princep "feel" the damage that his titan sustains?
Reminds me of Doomsday from DC Comics.
"No, you cannot have Ghost Rider's head. It's mine!"
I don't know where to start with the electricity puns...I am too shocked for words.
I remember Cortana hijacking a Covenant ship in Halo: First Strike saying plasma blobs were inefficient. She then cut an enemy Covenant ship in half by firing the ship's plasma weapons in a concentrated beam, accurate and surgical akin to a scalpel.
"You need to get your door fixed. It was too easy to break through."
If there's something cute in the front, put something cuter in the back.
"If you're gonna die, die to pierce the Warp, even if it's standing on my two feet I'm dying on, I'll keep going! When I break through, it means I've WON! Who the hell do you think I am? I'm Ollanus. I'm not my Emperor. I am myself! Ollanus Pius!"
Can win a game of Connect Four in 3 moves.
Doctor Octopus 40k
Knowing Guardsman Marley, he's probably high right now.
Kinda like how Canderous in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic talks of an encounter with a Yuuzhan Vong ship way before the SW galaxy makes formal contact with them thousands of years later.
YOU DON'T SAY?
Also Inside: "Do We Really Need Flak Jackets? Ask A Commissar!", p. 52
The one pointing his finger is showing the female where the kitchen is.
She has big guns if you get my drift.
I think it has to do with the fact that the Tau are young and naive (of what lies beyond the Tau Empire) when compared to the other factions. How such a new force is kicking *** and expanding in a galaxy of old guard.
And maybe because they hate their godly ranged weaponry and their clean, mecha anime style (compared to the grimdark fantasy/gothic style of the other factions).
This is actually a very old picture.
Also, those are not jeans.
Why does that Dark Eldar have a Chaos symbol (Slaanesh in particular) on him?
Slaanesh: "Please do."
*sees guardsman at doorway firing gun into air*
I keep thinking of the champion that Maximus fought in Gladiator.
"Whoa, you're taking my photo right now? Sure, why no-*head blown off*"
Attributed to Major General Oliver P. Smith, USMC, Korea, December 1950.
Y U NO B MADE IN IRELAND!?
Aliens could pass for a new type of Necron creature.
I imagine an undersized dog carrier on his back and the wolf is sticking it's head out.
"Seriously, who keeps cutting holes in my toast?"
Salamander Space Marine: "Nigga, did I just catch you eating biomass?"
The whole incident involving the "Men of Iron" was actually this.
A sect of the Adeptus Mechanicus secretly worships Optimus to this day.
They're actually square dancing. The Angry Marine took "swing your partner 'round and 'round" literally.
Cue Terminator theme:
DUN DUN, DUN D-DUN
DUN DUN, DUN D-DUN
Chapter's specialty: underground combat (caves/tunnels/sewers)
I think it has to do with most /k/ommandos being Americans.
Yeah, what Guardsman would wear digital camo anyway?
And what did Horus get for The Emperor on Father's Day?
SKULLS FOR THE SKULL GRAFTING
Hmm...phallic-shaped ships going through vagina-shaped openings in the Warp...
Looks like an assassination attempt on the Archon's life.
"I don't care if you are a Living Saint serving as my guardian angel, you are giving my position away!"
A nice view of an *** as well?
I think you got them confused with Da Orks.
Eldar cosplay is rare but welcome.
I demand Howling Banshee cosplay!
They're called AT-STs. They are larger and are prone to log traps.
Finally, someone did it!
Now do BLU Space Marines and Grey Necrons.
Brother Hansen quoting from chatlog:
"I want to do things to you that even She Who Thirsts would blush."
"I found some ancient Mon-Keigh movies that we can copy sex positions from."
"I'll let you ride my Wave Serpent...if you know what I mean."
They have hooved feet. Would it hurt as much as when a horse does it?
"...for tomorrow, you die!" - Ordo Xenos Inquisitor
Rouge Trader, Radical Inquisitor, or the next Love Can Bloom.
The ones with their faces showing have Asian eyes. (except the genestealer)
Yarrick is my favorite.
Warhammer Fantasy and 40k came before Diablo, so...
By one of those artists that does drawings for /tg/. This is an old one.
Not meant to be heretical/Chaos-aligned. Just fanservice.
If those genestealer design here is supposed to be a reference to xenomorphs...
How is Terminator armor immune to its acidic blood?
Xenomorphs with chainblade-tipped tails AND lightsabers!?
The Traitors may have forsaken the Imperium but not it's bureaucracy.
I like the Galactus hat.
This what Tau dream of how they wish they were in their sleep.
As for never getting that close, it is called Deep Striking.
Another piece of art from Stugmeister.
I know this artist. His name is Stugmeister (sp?) (you can find him on DeviantArt) and this is the Battle of Prospero.
Isn't Lorgar the weakest of the Primarchs? Looks like he didn't break a sweat while Calgar was exhausted from just catching the Avatar's sword and punching him.
LOL at the 2 guardsmen standing in the background, watching this Ciaphas Cain wannabe.
You cannot unsee the large white horseshoe on the Ultramarine's chest nor the horseshoe mark on his forehead when a horse kicked him there.
And thus their fall into Slaanesh's hands (or claws, or tentacles) began.
ELIPHAS! OPEN THE PORTAL!!
I hope those kids were heretics, mutants, disguised xenos, or possessed by Chaos.
Wait, that symbol on his belt is a mix of Nurgle and Slaanesh.
And according to the fluff, Plague Marines are depressed by what they become and therefore seek to spread their misery to others.
CHAINS FOR THE CHAIN GOD!
The Salamanders' lost 2nd Founding chapter.
What chapter is the spacemarine? I have a picture of a pre-heresy dreadnought with the same colors and emblem, possibly the same artist.
I could see Imperial Guard, the Adeptus Mechanicus, Tau, Necrons, and some of the more disciplined legions/warbands of Chaos as this.
It's a small, low res image so he may actually be squinting.
He's such a **** that he reposted this drawing of him here.
Small but still a repost.
This is, i believe, the 3rd time this image has been uploaded here.
Games Workshop was no longer satisfied with making tabletop games that are the best things since sliced bread and had to conquer that branch of the market as well.
Captain America = Ultramarines or Cadians
Iron Man = Adeptus Mechanicus or Iron Hands
Hulk = Orks
Thor = Space Wolves or Valhallan Ice Warriors
Hawkeye = Vindicare Assassin
Black Widow = Callidus Assassin
Nick Fury and SHIELD = Inquisition
Loki = Chaos Sorceror
"Oh Myself" XD
"Oops, sorry! Darn these scythe arms of mine!"
As long as this displeases Matt Ward then i'm good.
They make human-sized bolt weapons.
This is the last thing a Cadian sees...before crying tears of laughter when the traitor tries to fire that gun.
Slaanesh? Looks Undivided to me. I can't imagine Slaanesh Marines using chainaxes.
At least he's putting those hooves to good use.
Gallop! Gallop like you actually are good in CQC!
He be using loaded dice.
"What about women...and children?"
"Easy, you just don't las them as much."
That always bothered me when it came to the Ogryns in Dawn of War. They even grasp their guns by the blade attachment when swinging their weapon.
Armor design is somewhat similar to the human soldiers that joined Sauron in The Two Towers film.
rule of cool + quantity > quality
I wear my sunglasses at night
so I can
so I can...
Ends with another meme.
Emperor: "Son, I am disappoint."
Reminds me of a Star Wars comic where Vader is on a backwater planet and some stranger who has no idea who he is walks up and touches his cape.
***** were kicked as a result.
According to Lexicanum, the Imperium is a combination of the Roman Empire, Catholic Church, Victorian Britain, the Soviet Union, and Nazi Germany.
Tau are Japanese only in tech (inspired by mecha anime) aside from the honor blades they carry. Eldar have more in common with Japanese culture, particularly samurai culture.
"Being the one with the biggest headwear, I say what we will do next."
Meet The Krieg
"Mmmph MMMpf MMf mmph mph mf mmmpfh"
Could pass for Fantasy Battle.
From the thumbnail it looked like a hockey game.
Looking at his face...a hint of Terminator, too.
The blood stain behind her head kinda gives a different message to her condition.
