If the emperor is essentially a drooling vegtable.
Couldn't you put him in a chair on top of a land raider for some ungodly amount of points?:hmm:

Unfortunately, the Emperor is connected to that giant life support machine called the Golden throne, guarded by the custodes and fed 1000 psyker souls everyday. If he was moved then were would he go to? What planet would be worth plunging the entire Imperium into chaos?
"DICE FOR THE DICE GOD!"
And the almighty Dice God said to his followers "Thou shalt not speak ye words "anything but a one" For thou whoever'st speaketh this blasphemy will be cursed with thy rolls being of one".
It would be hilarious if GW actually released Codex: Emperor...
HQ: The Emperor
Elites: Psyker Souls
Troops: Psyker Souls
Special rules: The emperor must be fed 20 psykers every turn, if you run out, you lose!
I can just imagine all these little kids with their Emperor armies running around...
The emperor would be battling himself all over the galaxy!
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.
Anywho, right back on topic, I think the Emperor and all of the Imperium ( ALL OF IT ) probably think him too great to be battling mere chaos marines, or daemons for that matter, that s a grey knight's job.
No indeed if the Emperor could fight he would almost certainly immediatly set off into a one million year crusade into the eye of terror and blow it the f@#$ up.
Also here's an issue I don't understand. He's an almighty psycker, so which isn't he so mighty that he may O lets say... take mind worm pot shots across the galaxies to help in battle. it could be a Space Marine trait, 'The Emperor is with Us' or something and like one turn in the entire game (whichever turn you roll on a dice) you get to cast a single mindworm spell on any unit on the board, at a costly price of course >.>. And the reason he can't do more than mind worm is cause he's all the way in his chair on terra with his custodians playing Uno all day long.
That's all I got for now ^^.

Lol, i'm sure he'd cost 4k points on his own, it's like khaine or some other deity coming on the table.
But noes, not gonna happen, he's safely tucked into his continent spanning palace and seeing how the rent is low, he's unlikely to move out.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
Hmmm and the fluff over the last 20 years always left the slight but clear impression that the Emperor is not actually thàt conscious anymore. More like he's teetering on the edge of fading away completely, like a small spark or flame that's artificially kept alive by sacrificing 1000 psykers every day to keep the Astroniomicon going. Without those sacrifices the little spark would fade soon.
So bringing the Emperor to the tabletop would basically result in an elaborate 40K version of 'Weekend at Bernie's' .
This tread died two years ago...
P.S. 3 Necro-threads in the front page? What is this world coming to!?!
