This is your first and only warning - to everyone.

People work hard on their 40k work, be it fan work or official work. There's nothing wrong with sharing a work that has inspired you, but if it's a fan work please link it to the artist's source and attribute the creator. If you have it in an image dump and aren't sure where it comes from, do a google image reverse search or something of the like and try to find a source.

And this should go without saying, do not re-upload copyrighted works, especially Games Workshop IPs.

GW have been awesome enough to work with Kaiser on some exciting projects, it's not going to reflect well to have their copyrighted work uploaded without authorisation in the official EO forums.

Further uploads of copyrighted works will cause the posters to have their posting privileges reviewed.

Here's an idea that popped into my head so I'm writing it here before I forget
No ideaif this is the right place so PM me if that's the case.
So here we go:

Know how much 40K takes from our own history right?

WW I Christmas Truce-like scenario between Imperial Guard and Traitors that still believe in the Emperor (Can be Tau Gue'vasa)
Both parties singing songs in their own trenches and decide to do just like the Germans and the Brits did in 1914 and go to no man's land and cuddle or something.

The Traitors think that they can turn the Guard to their side by showing that there is Religious Tolerance under the Greater Good.

Just when the ice finally broke between the opposing sides and the whole army is out celebrating -The Grimdark kicks in.
The entire space between the trenches is buried under endless Basilisk Shells and Mortar barrages, killing both the Traitors and Loyalists who had no idea that they were used by the high command to lure the enemy out.

Then the Death Korps (Just to add a bit more of that delicious Grimdark) are sent to storm the empty enemy trenches and finish the job.

I'm not sure, because the Christmas Day truce came to happen because soldiers on each side were essentially equals, normal every day men, who were there because a higher power told them to be there.
Rebels and Imperials are not on equal footing, they have different ideals, and rebels have made a choice to discard the Imperial Creed, or harm the Imperium.

Could be treachery on same planet the regiment was raised on.
If I got that correctly, not all traitors stop praying to the Emperor (Tau Lovers for example)

It's an interesting concept, but I think due to how different the 40k universe is to our own it wouldn't really work. Like Cat said, they're not really on equal footing.

Now, say some sort of third enemy faction came in and forced them to work together to survive (which happens a decent amount in 40k). And assuming this attack happened around a holiday they both celebrated, I could see some sort of nifty coming together then.

But unless Chaos, Orks, Necrons or the Nids come a calling, I don't think that'll happen.

I think the point that gets missed in the 40k universe a lot is that the Imperium is not reasonable. Ever.

Individual Imperial citizens may be, but the Imperium as a whole, the Imperial Guard, the structures of the Imperium are not reasonable, they're not kind, and they're not understanding.

Imperial Guard who stopped shooting at enemies en masse for any reason are just asking for a decimation by the Commissariat. Doubly so if they end up in a hugfest in No Man's Land instead of, you guessed it, shooting the enemy.

The Imperium is built on hate, on fear. You don't try to understand your enemy, you kill them. To do anything less is heresy, and makes you one of them. So while it's a nice idea trying to apply 20th century logic to some of these things and have a nice Candlemas kickabout between the trenches, it just doesn't gel with the actual setting.

I plan on killing off one of my characters and traumatizing another, safe to say I have plans for them all and not many are good.
Speaking of, if some big character development were to occur, would I have the OK to rewrite stats? Like having a sweet caring person go to a paranoid wreck (not an example that relates to my cyborg terminators.)

I'll have to have a chat over PM with you about stuff relating to this though as it involves a few details that I I would like to run by you first.
