    It's the Imperium of man Vs Everyone else. The Imperium was led by the Emperor who was nearly killed by Horus when he fell to Chaos, and he took several Space Marine Primarchs and Chapters with him - that's what the Chaos Marines are, the Traitor Legions.

    Here is a picture of the Emperor Vs Horus, with the Blood Angels Primarch Sanguinius on the floor dead.
    If only that Custodes had entered the room earlier, the Imperium would be infinitely better off.

    Wow, this thread has inspired me to actually put an army together to play some games.
    Always just had my models for display.
    Now to find somewhere to buy stuff in the middle of the desert (Literally).

    Ah screw it, back to Dawn of War.

    All this talking about W40K makes me want to start again, i gave up because i had no one to play with, couldn't decide on a paint scheme and didn't make alot of stuff because i was worried that at some point i would be like "i should have used that to make this thing instead".

    Despite the Warhammer World being about 15min away from my house, i never played. I was fine with playing with random people, it was just going up to random people and asking them to play that i didn't like.

    I remember there was something about a Imperial Guardsman who tried to stop Horus by standing in his way, I heard they retconned him into a Custodian.
    Ollanus Pius, the most badass guardsman that never was.

    I was under the impression that they want to tie off the warp from the materium and then feast on souls here and there.

    I have my doubts they want to cleanse the universe off life, since that would kinda leave the C'tan without food.
    That's kinda what I meant. The Necrons want to murder everything to feed their gods. It used to be souls the C'tan fed off of, but they eventually retconned it into "life force", which I was assuming the Tyranids had to some degree. Either way, the Tyranids pose a great threat to the C'tan, because if they consume the galaxy, its like the Enslaver invasion all over again.

    My personal theory is that it was a last ditch weapon made by the Old Ones, outside of our galaxy for secrecy, as a sort of Mutually Assured Destruction weapon in their war against the C'tan.
    That...actually makes a lot of sense. The Old Ones made the Eldar and Orks to combat the Necrons and the C'tan, making them very warp-powerful. The Tyranids, while not expressly using the Warp, still use psychic energy quite a bit (Synapse and so forth), so it kinda fits the bill for what the Old Ones would make. And the fact that they are driven to hunger no matter what is, I guess, a way to strip the galaxy of the C'tan's food and let them starve.

    Wondering are the wargear packs for singleplayer or multiplayer?

    Am still going to get the collectors edition either way, it's not that much more expensive and comes with some nice stuff.

    my GFWL doesn't work

    its so fucking annoying. can't play gtaiv multi, rfg multi, dow2 multi.

    such an awful fucking system.

    it thinks my internet isn't working, even though i can connect to the internet fine and play steam multiplayer fine etc etc. etc.

    If the Tyranids ever fought the Necrons, even if they won it'd be a pyyrhic victory because they'd be unable to replenish their losses with biomass.

    Are you running any other adapters that might interfere with GFWL? Examples are Tunngle and Hamachi.

    I thought this was messing me up, cause I always had Hamachi on. So I uninstalled it and it didn't fix it.

    I do have a 1394 adapter which i think is firewire and thats running but i'm not using it.

    Then I really have no idea. But also, when Tunngle used to mess with my GFWL before I wasn't using it either, however the adapter was running.

    So even if you're not using them, they might still be working behind the scenes. (Just need to disable the adapter when you don't want it running, so there's no point in uninstalling it like Hamachi)

    I personally like the souldrinkers, only people in the world that makes me think purple is cool.

    Edited:

    Also, couldn't tyranids eventually run into the necrons and just think, oh hey that metal would look nice on them? It is a LIVING metal, that means it would have the ability to be placed on organic creatures.(or a worse though, orks smash the metal and make weapons out of it, regening orky armour?)

    Thats really interesting, from reading several books i always got the idea that his body was still preserved and he still looked like the moment he died. Instead, he's a creepy rotting corpse.

    And then there's this:
    My personal favourite is ths bit of fan art



    I remember there was something about a Imperial Guardsman who tried to stop Horus by standing in his way, I heard they retconned him into a Custodian.
    It's been everything fron a Guardsman, to a Custodes to an Imperial Fist Terminator, The story about it being a guardsman mostly comes from the Necromundan regiment that veiws him as a saint (Necromundan 8th iirc)

    It's living metal only as in it acts as if it is alive (think self repairing nanites) it entirely lacks the biological components the Tyranids require to reproduce, plus even if it did happen, as soon as those nids went to engage the Necrons in close combat, the living metal would be sucked right off them, as what happened to an Imperial assassin trying to assasinate a (disguised) C'tan with a Phase weapon (aka living metal weapon) it stabbed the C'tan and got absorbed right into him.
