334. Nurglings are not over date.
335. Thou shalt not make unfunny, fucktarded lists.
336. Thou shalt not parody the 10 Commandments in anyway, shape or form. This fucked-up list is thus scheduled by a committee of Chaplains of all First Founding Chapters.

374. Thou shalt not play "Nurgling Tennis", "Nurgling Volleyball", or "Nurgling Croquette".

420. Thou shalt not use thine rhino to hot box thyself and/or brothers.(exception: Angry Brethren Chapter)
421. Thou shalt remember that no matter how funny it is, scribing upon your Land Raider "My other ride is your sister" is tech-heresy.
422. Picking Thine nose and flinging it is heresy at its worst. Thy nose promethium contains precious parts of thine genetic code and should be turned over to the nearest apothecary immediately.
423. Squat, Grot, and Ratling Tossing is not a game sanctioned or tolerated by the Inquisition. Any betting on thereof shall be confiscated and donated to the Widows of Armageddon charity henceforth.
424. Thou shalt not insert one or more Imperial Guardsman into the Exhaust Pipe of a Titan with the purpose of causing the Titan to "Stall out". Doing so is punishable by Official Censure From the Mechanicum and Astra Militarum. Performing this with a commissar or Planetary governor adds a half reduction in a weeks rations to the censure.

430. Thou shalt not call the Deathwatch "Overglorifed recaf makers."

- Even if thine plasmagun is.
- Other pieces of equipment exclusive to thine Primaris brethen are also forbidden. If thou wish to have them, undergo the conversion into a Primaris.
500: All guidelines related to usage and bad practices relating to Rhinos, Land Raiders and Land Speeders hold true to Repulsors. ALL OF THEM.
501: Thou shall not use the Heavy Plasma Incinerator's generator extension to charge the battery of other non-commisioned devices, such as datasleets, smartphones or recreational handheld devices.
- No, "I'm in the verge of destroying this heretical camp in Drop Assault!" is not excuse.
502: As with Terminators, thou shall not trip over thine brethen in Gravis armor.
503: Even if thou're being considerate, thou shall not hand to thine Primaris brethen thine more exotic arms, like Meltaguns or Lascannons. Archmagos Cawl is working on versions for them. Hopefully.
- To our Primaris brothers: In the same vein as the previous gruideline, thou shall not try to fool the Armory by asking for exotic weaponry. Our Master of the Armory checks all assigned wargear so you'll only waste thine and his time.
- These rules also apply to vehicles unless chapter approved.
504: Thou shall not ask thine Inceptor brethen if they know about some show called "Youjo Senki" or "Tale of Tanya the Evil". They're starting to get sick of it.
505: To our blessed brothers who even in death, they serve: No, thou can't be installed in a Redemptor Dreadnought frame. Sadly it's already been tried and we will honour brother Agnatio's sacifice.
506: The Repulsor transports use their exterior auxiliar storage to keep ammunitions, supplies and shrines for easy access in the midst of battle, not to hold "2 c00l 4 the 2nd founding" signs.
507: The crews assigned to Astraeus-class vehicles shall not engage in shooting/destroying/speed competitions with crews of Baneblades, Fellblades or other superheavy vehicles. The last ones were registered in the Techmarines' sismographs!
508: Despite your notions of what pass for consideration, thou shall not gift the Lord Commander Guilliman a rear pillow for his "10.000 years of sore ass".
- Neither shall lament Cato Sicarius' return. Our fenrisian brothers have provided a hefty supply of Fenrisian ale for those who ask.
511: Thou shall not even think that the good relations with the Ynnari means that thou have leeway with Howling Banshees, Wyches, Harlequins and other aeldari females.
512: The only Imperial allowed to speak to Yvraine with familiarity is the Lord Commander. Ignore this guideline at your own risk. "I DARE YOU" - The Visarch.
- Thou shall also not comment on the Lord Commander's relationships with other females.
513: Thou shall not accept gifts from Archmagos Belisarius Cawl without chapter approval.
- Thou shall not accept ANYTHING from Archmagos Belisarius Cawl without chapter approval.
514: Thou shall get over the fact that the Adeptus Custodes' members are better than you.
515: Thou shall not "borrow" equipment from the Adeptus Custodes without permission of both organisations' command. The Adeptus Custodes expects the Blood Ravens to give back what they took.
516: Thou shall not gift custard to the Custodians. THAT WAS A JOKE.
517: Thou shall not take "selfies" with a Custodian unless asked by the custodian himself.
519: Thou shall not pester thine Primaris Apothecary about his necklaces of progenoid jars.
520: Thou shalt not refer to the custodians as "bananas in pajamas” nor shalt thou refer to the Emperor’s personal companions as "banana strippers" or "cone heads". Thou can, however, refer to the Aeldari as such.
521: Thou shalt not use thy Mechanicus-issued chainsword as a toothbrush...unless you are Sly Marbo in which case you may do whatever you please.
522: If thou are promised confections from a strange looking purple and black Chaos Space Marine in a Land Raider, get an adult. You already have a confection ration, it is not even needed in the first place.
523: Thou shalt not use a conversion beamer to "ray away the gay”. It doesn’t work. We tried it on the Harlequins...it just makes a mess.
524: Thou shalt not punt Ratlings and Squats....unless you have an Imperial-sanctioned scorepost and fill out Squat Punting form 817c first.
525: Thou shalt not play "hide and go seek" with the Raven Guard...unless thou wishes to be on the next deployment fighting Eldar Craftworld Alaitoc.
526: Thou shalt not replace the Commissar’s sanctioned bolt pistol with a Mechanicus-issued BB gun replica. Those men were meant to be executed.
527: When a dreadnought or Sentinel engages a Tyranid Hive Tyrant, Norn Queen or any other “Super Heavy Creature", thou shalt not yell out "Get away from her you BITCH!"
528: Thou shalt not throw dog biscuits at the Space Wolves (Wulfen are fair game though).
529: Thou shalt not hum the “Jaws” theme around the Carcharadons, that is their sacred battle hymn and we got a very nasty letter from their chaplains last month asking us to stop. It is not funny.
530: Likewise, humming the “Baby Shark” theme around the scout company of the Carcharadons is now illegal under the Lex Imperialis, (Seriously, if I have to hear that song one more time!)
531: Thou shalt not "flip the bird" near Marines Malevolent, lest thou wishes to experience pain, unless the Salamanders are present in which case flip away.
532: Thou shalt not tease Enginseers with toasters.
533: Thou shalt not inquire a Dark Angel about what happened to Caliban.
534: Thou shalt not inquire a Raven Guard marine about the raptor project.
If thou is having a hard time remembering all the guidelines...
