    Arrogant, bitter, often lost in memories of battles long since ended.
    Scornful and mocking of the lesser servants of the false god, disdainful of the world around them.
    Often introspective, comparing loyalist forces to a rose-tinted view of the past (how small and feeble modern marines are compared to the giants of the crusades and all that), practically sleepwalking into battle until angered and then all wrathful and vengeful with a hint of sorrow and torment that they are invariably going to get kicked in again, another failed attempt to reclaim lost glory.

    Add in some brooding and moping, a mixture of concern and self-affirmation about mutations and the big 'plan', some adoration for their primarch, some snarky comments about other legions, some decent "in time all will fall / you worship a corpse / i'll get you next time gadget" fist waving and wrapped up and the end with the fact that this guy has been doing the same thing for many centuries, it's his day job with no end in sight - a pawn of a pawn with delusions of grandeur.

    So far I've only finished one BL book, it started with the Marines in a temple I think, anyhow they were ambushed by Chaos and lost their leader, anyhow I think starting with a big battle or just maybe a small fight, something like that might be fun to write and read, depending on who you are.

    well i will make a thread and start my story and progress and get advice on it. One question- do the warhammer 40k Books from BL have chapters or is it just writing continuously?

    sorry I don't quite understand what you mean by "do the warhammer 40k Books from BL have chapters or is it just writing continuously?" If your asking if you read them in a certain order, then their are saga's or trilogies that are ment to be read as a whole, like the horus herasy saga or the Word Bearers trilogy.
