what is fluff>?
Fluff. It is a word that is used to describe background information.
So the fluff on ultramarines is like all of the work published about the ultramariens. It is basically just extra or "fluff" information. It has no direct connection to the game in anyway shape or form. Some people like to shape their armies after what they read in stories "fluff" and others play for the game.

Fluff is what makes the little soldiers into little soldiers, as opposed to lumps of plastic.
Fluff is what makes the Dark Eldar the sadistic, hedonistic raiders they are, rather than "those dark minutures with the spikes.."
It's the little stories and tales that give the game some depth.
More than anything, fluff is optional. If you could care less about figurine plotlines and character development, you can just say "Chapter A of Blood Angels led by Chaplain B". But after spending so much money in the figures and so much time and effort constructing and painting them, it would be blasphemy to not at least give them a good few hours to develop a plotline.
Every whisper of the future from the Warp speaks of a hundred battles lost, a thousand lives devoured and a million enemies born. -- Inquisitor Lord Babel
Aye, I concur, I've been putting together some fluff for my chapter. When playing against/ with other armies, you can devlop a history for your army that you link to other people's armies, it makes games alot more friendly and more enjoyable and makes for great campagins too, instead of "Capture that world" somthing like "Tiban IV is the captial world of the Gestan Sector and is of great strategic importance due to its resources and orbital shipyards that can be of great use to a competent commander, if harnesed well and protected sufficetnly, your campaign will have a great assest at its disposal." Sounds alot more interesting to play doesnt it?Originally Posted by Babel_Matrix
