Happens all the time.
thats why spire had such a easy time delivering info on the chaos invasion that was incoming, inquisitors always just ask nicely
Spire was having his loyalty tested for the role the Inquisitor had. It had nothing to do with delivering the information. Inquisitors frequently ask nicely. It's when they don't get what they want, or suspect something, they turn nasty.
using xeno tech is heresy and abandoning lazguns to use them is grounds for execution
if they didnt have any weapons that excuse might work but they abandoned imperial and sanctioned tech for xeno tech
its in the lectitio divinatus
A: It's grounds for execution, so long as a Commissar decides it is. The Inquisition frequently doesn't give a damn.
B: It's not in the Lectitio Divinatus, that was a heresy era object. The Imperial Cult is built on it, not defined by it.
except that it was fully conquered and in the process of going full deamon world
deamons where walking around casually without needing summons
It was not going full daemon world. A daemon world is a planet in the warp that is UTTERLY infested by daemons.
Daemons were not 'walking around casually' but were bound to the Wirewolves which would only be animated if the Glyfs detected something out of place. The Glyfs being artefacts of chaos magic, not daemons.
storm of iron where the word bearers made a Gehemehnet was less corrupted
A Gehemehnet was never constructed in Storm of Iron. You're thinking of the Iron Warriors trilogy. And you might have had a point, except that the Gehemenet we observe constructed was a modified version used explicitly to crack into a Necron Tomb, not sacrifice a planet.
a mind whipe is a minimum according to imperial protocol
It's a protocol that has been ignored in literally every single novel and ceased being mentioned some time in the 2nd Edition (Unless the 8th has brought the idea back.)
and i can thus say that terminator armor has lots of multilazers because there is also a writer that is consistent in that
where is the codex entry for multilazer terminators?
As shite as his writing is, there is literally no reason that Terminators could not conceptually field Multilasers as an armament.
no, one writer that writes stories that are completely inconsistent with all others might indicate that that writer is wrong instead of all the others
just because you like 40k light: WW2 in spaaaaaaace doesnt make that the lore
Yes. It does mean that, when that author is repeatedly hired to produce book after book and the others are not. And yes, the fact that Black Library publishes it does in fact make it the lore.
if you have one writer whose lore is massively different from all others its more likely that all writers are right instead of the one
When you have one author who is repeatedly hired and others who are not, it is not even remotely plausible that the other one-shot authors are right. That is as absurd as saying that a business must be awesome because they hired fifty temps where another just hired one guy to do the whole job. If the business hired 50 temps it was because they couldn't do the job.
sure all writers make mistakes but most dont deliberatly ignore whole parts of imperial history or have imperial serving chaos spawn
or improbabilities like someone who was taken by the black ships meeting someone he knows again
what is the chanse of that
Pretty high. The warp can be pretty fucky that way. Also, Abnett doesn't deliberately ignore whole parts of Imperial History. And the Imperium certainly has, at many periods, put people in on the ground amongst chaos populations to gather intelligence.
they writ more consistent to their own lore but not 40k lore
again terminators with multilazers, he is very consistent, still not true
No. They write to 40k lore, or they wouldn't be published. This isn't even a point of discussion, this is absolute fact. Their work is 40k lore, whether you like it or not, they hold LITERALLY equal canon status with the Codexes and other material.
And again, there is nothing conceptually wrong or difficult to believe about Terminators using multilasers, given that they can use Assault Cannons, Reaper Autocannons and other heavy weaponry one handed.
using incorrect lore to justify incorrect lore
There is literally no such thing as incorrect lore. It doesn't fit YOUR vision of the lore. It does fit GWs vision. Or it wouldn't be published, again this isn't even a debatable point. This is literally GW's position on the subject.
for example desert raiders, the search for the fortress of arrogance, many books of terminators inside space hulks, several cain books where enter a cave or sewer and many many many more
Space Hulks ; The massive many kilometres thick objects made of starship hulls with uncontrolled energy discharges, energy fielding, power discharges, it's own vox distortions.... Sewer = Underground. Many communications systems don't work underground.
imperial tech is reliably and consistently unreliable and its not just one author and his personal lore that has them being unreliable
its just one author that has them as reliable
Utterly and entirely wrong. 40k lore has always been consistent on the Imperials choice of equipment SPECIFICALLY for how reliable it is. They don't expect it to run for a couple of years before needing to be replaced. They expect everything down to the humble lasgun to last for decades upon decades without fault or need for replacement. I've been part of the hobby since 2nd Edition was released and I can tell you now for a matter of absolute fact.
The idea that Imperial tech is "reliable for being unreliable" is an idiotic meme perpetrated by equally idiotic people.
that makes them being reliable not consistent, just some persons fanfic about WW2 in spaaaaace
that person is just very consistent in being wrong
Yes. Your fanfic is consistent in being wrong.
Abnetts work is about as much of a Fanfic as the Codexes are. Because his work holds equal canon status with them.
@kadaeux I mean most 40k writers have their issues, and Annette is no exception. That being said he is one of the better ones, and his bias’s are Simple and Obvious (like ABD’s chaos obsession) Counter is not a good example, as while he has good ideas he does not do his research (the amount of things he got wrong about the Necrons in the world engine can be described as merely everything). But he’s definitely above explicitly bad writers like C.S goto or those who often make terrible things like Phil Kellyand his hatecrime against lore that is Warzone:Damnos
Oh they have their faults for sure. Counter is bad with Necrons. Abnett, much as I love his Guard work, can't write Marines to save his life.... (And, I think we all know, Marines in a Ghosts book are going to be there to show a Ghost do something badass.)
