Cuss. As embarrassing as it is to admit, I misread the strikedown rule. Gotta find that guy and apologize... --SpectralTime (talk) 07:17, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

You were looking for links for Age of Sigmar, try here for photos. Your best bet is never to use google and just go directly to rumour sites like natfka or forums like bolter & chainsword, nevertheless these pics were on someones Facebook and are circulating the web [1] --Dark Angel 2020 (talk) 08:11, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

I did go to those, the ones I found didn't include any pictures or links that weren't months old. The reason I had asked that person was because I wanted a source for the quotes, but thank you very much for once again providing a source. -- Triacom (talk) 08:45, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Hey there, just wanted to apologise if you felt I was attacking your viewpoint on the Guilliman edits, I get the impression we were each looking at it from different angles and I know it got very verbose at times. I liked your input and the way the page has come together, I just wanted to highlight a different way of looking at things, but I don't want any bad blood over anything. --Dark Angel 2020 (talk) 08:06, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Don't worry, I don't hold anything against you as I'm perfectly fine with people coming up with alternate viewpoints so long as they do that to be constructive, and it ended up being constructive in the end. Overall I'm also fairly happy with how that section currently is. -- Triacom (talk) 15:18, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

BTW...how do you remove artwork? - Ben (talk) 15:30, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

I don't know how to delete it, I imagine that wikifag or assistant wikifag would be able to do something about it as it would be ridiculous for a wiki to be unable to remove artwork added to it, but you can choose an "updated" version of the file, meaning just upload a picture that has nothing to do with the original picture (like a white square) and now stolen artwork is no longer on the wiki. Also I changed the ridiculous amount of spacing, I'm not sure if that was meant to be part of a longer message but it would have been a bit annoying to reply to. -- Triacom (talk) 15:41, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Good idea. - Ben (talk) 15:45, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
I think I should mention too that uploading a new version will not get rid of the old version (that'll be an admin thing) but at the very least it'll stop other pages from linking to that artwork, meaning the only place the stolen artwork can appear is in the image history. -- Triacom (talk) 15:47, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Then we'll have to wait. Also checked if the guy did a thread on /tg/. So far he's negatively received. - Ben (talk) 15:53, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Not very surprising given how horribly the article was written in general. I'd feel sorry for him if he hadn't brought it on himself.---Newerfag (talk) 16:33, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for moving the page, m8 -- Zerghalo2 (talk) 04:23, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Is there some sort of 1d4chan chat? Talk pages are fine, but sometimes trivial stuff lasts a week to be answered and even Halofags have their own chat. -- Zerghalo2 (talk) 20:53, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

As far as I'm aware there is not a chat, though I don't think anyone would be against you or anybody else making one, or using chats from other places. -- Triacom (talk) 22:14, 8 November 2015 (UTC)


Hey, I rectified the Dreadclaw rules. You forgot to add normal Dreadnought as well. I'd initially thought you were insisting that Veterans take them as a DT, my mistake sorry - serves me right for being an exhausted idiot and reading the edit message before the actual edit... ~ Marshal

Hey[edit]

Thanks. I'd need a load of sedatives and whiskey to write this calm.--SaltyMan (talk) 13:38, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Mortarion[edit]

Re: https://1d4chan.org/index.php?title=Mortarion&diff=399418&oldid=399417

Just a note on his size as a daemon prince: he's as huge as the rest of the daemon primarchs. Consider this image from the 1997 Epic rulebook, for example. -Stelio (talk) 14:08, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

No he's not. He hasn't been that big for a very long time now, here's how big he really is. There's a slight perspective thing there where his legs go off the picture to allow the rest of him to stay on it (so he's not equal in height to Draigo), but otherwise he's the same size as he was before his 'transformation'. Also Epic hasn't been the basis for what the Primarchs look like for quite a while. -- Triacom (talk) 16:38, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Also why have none of the Primarch fight pages been updated for Leman Russ and Magnus? Do we just feel it's pointless to mathammer those fights out? Crazy Cryptek (talk) 16:41, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
I don't feel it's pointless. Doing all that math takes a bit of time and requires motivation (and I lost a lot of mine trying to do the play-by-play between Leman Russ and Horus). I should be able to finish them off this weekend though, then I just need to go through the fights to make sure they're consistent. -- Triacom (talk) 16:46, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Ah I was just wondering if everyone had determined that nobody could beat biomancy Magnus or Russ in a fight and left it at that. Crazy Cryptek (talk) 17:11, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
I don't want to get too burned out too quickly because I also want to add exhibition matches between Anacharis Scoria and the Custodes Tribune to every match, with potentially having those two duke it out against each other at the end. I'm also considering adding Constantin Valdor, since as far as I know he's the only character able to beat the Tribune in a fight. -- Triacom (talk) 17:17, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

What in Khorne's name is happening to this wiki?[edit]

The past week or so, the Recent Changes page has been dominated by edit wars about Drowtales and the damn Transformers wiki. Your conduct has been admirable, and my intention isn't to criticize you. I love a spirited discussion as much as anybody, and try not to be too judgemental when they get intense. That said, these incidents seem... excessive. I don't want to be a stickler about only /tg/ related stuff. There's nothing wrong with a brief page about Drowtales (which I've never read), but users treating this wiki as their personal blog to rant about anything that pisses them off strikes me as in poor taste. Shouldn't this wiki inform people about traditional games and their flaws (with occasional anti-40k faction rants) instead? EatTheRich (talk) 23:04, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Wow, you sound exactly like me. And I agree, I know "everything can be made /tg/ related" but we have to draw the line somewhere. --Newerfag (talk) 23:27, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
  • What's happening is rather simple. In the Drowtales case it's no longer an editwar, and instead the discussion is going back and forth on what it should be. Personally I had little interest in that series until the editwar, and then I looked it up and edited the main page to end it, and that seems to have worked. Now it's little more than a page to be fine-tuned as we discuss what to add/leave in the talk page and then it can pass from memory.
What's happening in the Transformers page on the other hand is EDIT : an anonymous user got mad about things the tfwiki said and tried to bring their dislike of it across on the wiki page for it. After that I got mad at what they were saying in the talk page and it devolved from there (I'll fully admit that I shouldn't have done that). I'm done with that page now though, and if the user left me alone I'd be done with them too.
Now as for the wiki in general, I actually agree. Personally I don't think Drowtales and Goblins need their own pages, I'd much rather have them on a single webcomic page and in collapsible sections with a short summary, and the only reason I think we should have them there and not off the wiki is because of their popularity, the setting, and the fact that you can point to them and say 'Here's how you do X wrong!' You could even put Drowtales on the Drow page with that as its own header, and in a collapsible section, sort of like what I did with the Rebecca Black page and the Meme page. She was too related to /tg/ to remove, but people were really upset that she got her own page, so combining both fixed those issues.
I do sympathize with the idea that users shouldn't treat this as their own personal blog, and it's one of the reasons that so far I've stayed away from editing certain pages. If it was up to me the War of the Beast page would be nothing but very long and detailed rants on how the Beast Arises is easily the worst series to come out of Black Library, and how nearly every single book in that series fucking sucks (the first one is okay at setting everything up, all following books are terrible). I've got no interest in trying to make this wiki all about me however (which is the main reason you can find me in a lot of talk pages) and if you want to remove personal rants from pages, go ahead, however right now a new user has come into the Drowtales page because they're upset those rants have been removed, so I can't guarantee doing that will go over well. -- Triacom (talk) 05:10, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
>I hope someone is banned for having a different opinion from me
Literally can't make this shit up.
News flash, anon: Nobody cares how they do things on their wiki, except you it seems. I don't see them making an article about /tg/ and complaining about how we write our wiki, so keep the complaints to yourself and make your own rant elsewhere if you absolutely must. --Newerfag (talk) 21:14, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
Hey anon, I know what your problem with the tfwiki is. I've already countered your (barely existing) arguments and I'm not going to continue arguing on my page about the policies of another wiki or what you imagine they've done, nor am I going to argue with you any more on the Transformers page. I'm moving your points to Assistantwikifag's page since I'm done with you and they're far more relevant there. -- Triacom (talk) 22:20, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
Interesting how you decided to cut out over half of my argument, when making that post. Then calling my arguments barely existing. Then putting even more quotes out of context. Fantastic. It's almost like you want to make yourself look like a subversive asshole.
And really, no, you don't, considering you've consistently ignored entire arguments and damning evidence. This is like trying to explain to a retarded kid why he can't fly with his superman suit on. It's just fucking sad at this point.
I moved the arguments to the pages that should have them and stated where I moved them. I've already argued those points and your 'damning evidence' amounted to nothing, but that's on different pages (and I did not put more quotes 'out of context'). This time however I'm removing the bits you re-added because they already exist on Assistantwikifag's page, which is where they should be, and I'm not letting you drag that argument here. -- Triacom (talk) 05:08, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Oh, I'm also moving that other post you did to AssistantWikifag's talk page as well. -- Triacom (talk) 05:10, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Anon, before you make further edits, know that any further arguments that relate to transformers or anything that is discussed on AssistantWikifag's page are just going to get moved there. Figured I might as well state this in advance because, as I stated, I'm not continuing that argument here, and they have more relevance there. -- Triacom (talk) 05:29, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Another update, I am pasting them there, I'm simply not having irrelevant arguments attached to my page because I've told you, I'm done arguing the points, and I told you this before you tried bringing them here. -- Triacom (talk) 05:34, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

I just want to fucking forget all this shit okay[edit]

And there is this guy who keeps reverting because I am deleting something that doesn't fucking affect his life in anyway. Are your opinions on a page that no one gives a shit about which is my talk page really matter that much to you? I had a period of silence because I was busy, got things to do with life. I don't fucking bother to argue this shit anymore and I don't want to be fucking reminded of it.

So please, just do me a favor, you can be an angel fucking leave me alone. So I can forget about this shitty ass game that has less active players than Company of Heroes 2 which was released 4 years ago. I don't need to be fucking reminded that it and all the drama that drag me along with it exist. Hope the fucking company goes under and SEGA passes the IP to someone smarter, like CA.

I couldn't care less if I am suspended, I just read, I don't even edit shits all that much except one occasion. So I think I'll keep reverting this over and over again. And don't worry, if something other than you automatically reverts it, I'll put some fucking words on the page to stop whatever it is from triggering, words that I think you would agree. I just want to fucking forget that the shit exists, not forgetting how much of a dumbass I was for arguing about a 60 $ alpha crap fest so shit pirates don't even bother touching it.

This is what you should have done in the beginning. If you just wanted to put everything behind you then you should have said so at least once when I asked you to talk to me and/or to explain what you're doing and why you're doing it instead of just doing constant reverts. -- Triacom (talk) 18:03, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

why?[edit]

its only a very specific page. the Yugioh page, i Stronglybelieve that yugioh should be deleted from this wikia as i firmly know it does not belong on /tg/ or this wiki. why? because it isnt a real tabletop game, its a merchandise based off a non /tg/ approved anime, and as well as the fact that i dont like yugioh. i will not rest until it is deleted and im going to do everything in my power to get it removed from this website. --XToverdrive (talk) 05:05, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, and we have other merchandise games on here too based off of things /tg/ does or does not approve of (just look at FATAL). It's still a tabletop game, regardless of how 'real' it is, and it's a very popular one that I think should still be covered, even though I don't play it myself and have no interest in the show. -- Triacom (talk) 05:08, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
While we're here though, why exactly did you blank this page considering there wasn't a single reference to that game until you decided to make one right here? I'm assuming that IP address was just you before you logged in. -- Triacom (talk) 05:10, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
Because he's a butthurt little whiner who can't accept that the wiki doesn't give a fuck about what he wants. I bet hell either be banned or quit the wiki in a week. --Newerfag (talk) 05:28, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Can't Necrons spam anti-psyker devices?[edit]

I know it isn't my exact wording but srsly, almost every faction should have reliable anti-psyker methods right? Wouldn't TS have problems if they are faced with those anti-psyker squads/troops? Pilgrim of Terra (talk)

No, in the lore we've been given no indication that Necrons can spam Spyders equipped with the devices, not to mention Spyders are only really used in defence of Tomb Worlds. Even then the Thousand Sons as a legion are not entirely dependent on their psychic abilities, they still have everything else a legion normally has, the psychic abilities are just the cherry on the cake. -- Triacom (talk) 08:30, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Aren't psykers the core of the XV Legion? And is it possible for Eldar(Craftworld/Dark/Harlequin) to simply psychically overwhelm/some old empire tech/Blank XV squads? Pilgrim of Terra (talk)

Psykers are the pride of the Thousand Sons, but they weren't everything about them. It's for this reason that even when they were attacked by the Sisters of Silence the Thousand Sons counterattacked them with marines that were either much weaker in psychic ability or had no psychic talent. In fact the Burning of Prospero board game book outright states that the Sisters would have lost if they were on their own. As for the Eldar, no they cannot. -- Triacom (talk) 17:57, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

The Eldar can't counter XV because "meh petty xenos"?

Oh when you wrote blank squads I thought you meant squads of blanks (as in the ones with the pariah gene) and technology that's similar, my mistake. Yeah they can overwhelm them just fine, much like anyone/thing that doesn't have the Pariah gene. -- Triacom (talk) 05:50, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
That said, do keep in mind that Eldar psykers rarely use their powers for direct combat purposes. Even in the crunch most of them are oriented more around buffing/debuffing than they are about inflicting damage. --Newerfag (talk) 07:04, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

Speaking about Blanks, how would Solitaires fare against TS squads? Pilgrim of Terra (talk)

I'm not sure which squad you're referring to when you say TS squads. -- Triacom (talk) 07:46, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
Thousand Sons. Though given Eldar birth rates getting a double fluff debuff from both Isha's capture and Asuryan's parting gift, Solitaires aren't going to have any way to quickly increase their numbers... Pilgrim of Terra (talk)
I imagine Solitaires would have as much issue running through Thousand Sons squads as any other regular Marine squads (ie: none). I don't see why they'd have any issues at all honestly. -- Triacom (talk) 09:37, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
