Ok so I wasn't able to post earlier as I had planned so here it is short and sweet.

 

 

 

Today the B&C turns 19 years old!!

 

Thanks to you, the Frater, this place has become and continues to be one of the best places to discuss Space Marines and (more recently) 40k.

 

Next year we turn 20....it is gonna be big!

The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.

Well it certainly doesn't have Iron Hands trait, that's for sure because that only applies to infantry and dreadnoughts! -getting them 8th edition broadsides in while I can!-

Wow, 19 years, in Australia that makes B&C old enough to drink, vote and die in a war. I’ve been with the forum for about 11 years now and since then I’ve seen it grow and develop into something pretty awesome, where other places on the net have been slowly dying like Heresy Online and Warseer, or have degenerated into something not worth visiting like BoLS. Congrats all, and thank you to Argos and his administrative and moderrating teams. Here’s to another nineteen.

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's odd to think about. I got into 40k a little over 20 years ago. In that time, I've seen GW's website go from a few static pages to a social-media linked webstore. I've watched websites like B&C and ImpLit go from rudimentary forums of mostly text to sprawling, feature filled information hubs.

 

It's also weird to imagine that many members of this board were born after it was created... huh.png

Damnation starts with little steps, by arrogantly thinking that you are wiser than our great forbears, by tinkering with truth, by compromising, by departing from the straight and narrow path of the Emperor’s light.
