Who brought the WD-40?

Emster comments: Tim thought the new armor was bitchin’ until he realised he could not lower his arms.

    That sword is puny for someone in a mech suit.

    “Sharo-o-o-n! Yow’m left me helmet in the wash!”

    I look at this and all I can think is “Mecha orgy”. I have no idea what that means. Thankfully.

    There’s a meme about that, in fact:

    @Emster: GSS!!! A new addition to our Top 10 list, and also great art direction. The Great White North is not spared abomination.

    Why aren’t the guys wearing helmets? They’re in a mosh pit of mech suits and swords and they’ve got their face and skull just hanging out? I think Tim and his pal have realized their mistake and are screaming an Anglo-Saxonism beginning with “F”.

    Other than that, what do they all do except stumble around stiffly while waving around mostly-inadequate weapons? Is this the futuristic equivalent of people wearing those inflatable sumo wrestler suits and trying to knock each other down using only their torsos?

    GSS also to @Tat, Tor, and Max.

    @GSS: he’s tried wearing a helmet, but it gives him the worst case of helmet-hair.

    @fred: he mostly uses it for pointing at things when instructing the troops. Like “You see those several thousand clunky-looking robots over there? Well, you guys need to fight your way through them so we can then climb the two-mile-high cliff to reach the Fortress of Impregnability. Don’t worry, I’ll be right behind you, providing further instructions.”

    “I have something to say, it is better to burn out than fade away.”
    “There can be only one.”

  12. Tor Mented Says:

    The reason for no helmets? When they try to screw them on, it rips their hair out.

    Q. What’s a “Horus Rising” anyway?
    A. Not sure, but the last time I slept in a brothel, I think I saw some in the morning.

    Is his name Tony Montana?

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I don’t actually see anyone rising here. Looks like a ton of falling about to happen.

  16. Max Bathroom Says:

    Given what ends up happening to Horus in the WH40K mythos, the title is probably dramatic irony.
