Here’s a little fluff quiz (I was bored so I thought I’d see how much you all knew).
Try to do it without looking at any books or websites.
If you spot a mistake I’m sorry and I will try to correct it, but I’ve been using two websites and the codices so it’s from them.

So keep your eyes on your own work, you are not allowed any aids (ie books or websites) other than your head. So good luck and the quiz starts …now.

1.What is the Drug Callidus Assassins use to change shape?

2.What Chapter is the Legion of the damned?
Bonus: What did the banner they left at a besieged Imperial research station say?

3.Name all the primarches and their Legion

4.What happened to Commissar Yarrick’s eye?

4.How did Tallarn become a desert planet?

5.How many Primarches have been assassinated?

6.What is the Black Library?
Bonus: Name the Inquisitor who entered it.

7.What is the Astronomica?

8.What chapter number are the Grey Knights?
Bonus: What’s the book that’s strapped to their breastplate called?

9.What’s the original name for the Black Legion?

10.What’s the other name of the Sisters of Battle?
Bonus: Can you name the Orders Militant?

11.Who’s Luther and what’s his relationship to the “Fallen Angels�?
Bonus: Where is he?

12.What does STC stand for?

13.What did the Ultramarines lose in fighting Hive Fleet Behemoth?

14.What is the Ordo Maleus?

15.What happened to the Crimson Fists on Rynn's world?
Bonus: By Who?

correction to number 15:

Rynn's World was invaded by orks. During the opening stage of the attack, a plasma generator exploded (either from an attack or the worst luck ever). The blast destroyed the monastary and killed 90% of the chapter.


All bow to the NEW fluff priest B)

Sis will probably cry when she sees your answers on 10....
Question 10, the other name is Adeptus Soritas, not astartes(they might have some problems with joinig an order) or whatelse you wrote.
The Orders Are:
Order of The Bloody Rose
Order of Our Matryed Lady
Order of the Argent Shroud
Order of the Sacred Rose
Order of the Ebon Chalice
Order of the Valrous Heart

But rember that these are the Official GW orders, like the SM chapters the gals also have many more Orders.....

And i can only see 16 of the founding legions, lets add the 2 last ones
Salamanders - Vulkan
World Eaters - Angron

And the unanswerd no.4(Tallarn question)
It got virus bombed

Question 6.It says what is, not where...
Its a collection of Eldars secret tomes

AFAIK, The Fire Hawks aren't the Legion of the Damned.

The Fire Hawks were declared excommunicate by the Inquistion after a mutation in their gene-seed caused them to spontaneously combust in battle. They aren't harmed by the flames, and it seems like the flames actually make it harder to shoot them.

The Legion of the Damned I can't remember who they were.. They were a Chapter that was lost in the warp.

You *****, Ulrik. You changed the questions after I answered.

Your phrasing was unclear as to what you meant by Orders, so I listed the bastardised latin titles used by GW for their armies.

In fact, I now refer you to WD99, where it clearly states that the Fire Hawks were lost in the warp, and after contracting a malady of the warp began to die, and renamed themselves the Legion of the Damned.

Number four, I cant believe I missed that out. Must be due to the fun we were having with Slai in IRC.

Question 6 you changed from where to what.

The legions, well. I couldnt remember them, despite having the Salamanders' preliminary army list in WD open in front of me. World Eaters blow, in any case. Hail Emperor's Children!

Correction to the Yarrick answer.

He did not lose it fighting Orks....

Rather he had fought and wony many victories against Orks in his illustrious career. so many infact that the Orks belived he possessed special powers and could kill Orks with but a glance. Being a master of Warfare against Orks he realized that Orks were pretty much a supersticious lot, he decided to use the Ork legends of Yarrick against the Orks. So he had his eye REMOVED and relpaced with a special bionic one that was capable of firing a laser. Thus he brought an Ork legend to life, making them fear him that much more.

A masterful bit of Psychology if I do say so myself...

oh and it was Inquisitor Czevak who entered the Black Library...

And the Crimson Fists Fortress was destroyed by missles fired from the fortress itself, which pretty much shot straight up into the air and landed on top of the ammo depot. Although they were fighting against an Ork invasion at the time. Some Crimson Fists belive the destruction of thier Fortress- Monestary was the work of sabatuers and many belive it to be the handy work of an Assassin...

Well, I think that piece in WD99 is now as defunct as the Squats, 'cause the Fire Hawks now have their own different rules and colour scheme from the Legion of the Damned.
I refer you to a recent White Dwarf. I think it's the most recent one.. 283 or something..

That's why I said they were difficult to shoot at because they spontanously combusted, because there were rules for that.

Yeah you should do a new quiz using PMs... These are some pretty decent questions that would make a cool quiz... Think of some new ones and make a new quiz..

Since when did the Crimson Fists lose it through bad maintenance? The original rulebook with the original scenario had the CFs fighting through Rynn's World (Pedro Cantor et al) in a guerilla action due to a rogue missile from the defence batteries falling back on the fortress monastery and blowing ten bells out of the thing.

Honestly I am not being obstreporous here that is the way it happened originally so when did it change?
