So guess who discovered the B&C army painter and painted their own homebrew chapter
The Venom Prowlers are an Ultramarines successor chapter whose geneseed underwent a catastrophic mutation in the founding process, resulting in the majority of the chapter suffering from an overactive Betcher’s Gland, as well as a minority with an overactive Omophagea. The result is a chapter of Astartes with the ability to produce starling amounts of venomous, acidic saliva on demand.
Undeterred, the Venom Prowlers have incorporated this unusual ability into their combat doctrine, favoring a strategy of slowly stalking the foe from a concealed position before ambushing them with terrifying speed, spitting venom into their faces to blind and incapacitate them before finishing them off at melee range. (Thunder claws are a preferred weapon, to complete the image of the savage, animalistic predator.) Of course, this strategy requires most of the battle-brothers to go helmetless, so that they may spit unimpeded.
Naturally, the Venom Prowlers’ relationship with their purer progenitors and brethren can be somewhat strained. However, as a result of this, they have formed rather close bonds with other chapters whose mutations make them outcasts, such as the Black Dragons.

evanbranco asked: Can you re-post the story about someone being a bear as a character? I can't find it anywhere and no one will believe me!
There once was a game about a robot named X. And X was special: He was the first ever robot able to “think, feel and make his own decisions”, whatever that means. But he emerged into a war torn world, and he was given a gun – to go out into the world and kill, like all of his predecessors. Like millions of special young boys before him.
Such is our freedom.
And at the end of the game, X stares out upon a crumbling landscape and wonders: Why? Why is he there, what is he doing? And he stares at the weapon on his arm and dreams that maybe it holds the answer. Because if his weapon, by which he has lived and died, by which he pursued every goal that appeared before him – if it has no answer, what possible answer could there be?
I think we all feel like we have no purpose, sometimes, and it feels wrong. But it’s worse for X, because everything about him screams that he was nothing more than an experiment. He was abandoned before he was born, put into stasis so that checks could be run on his body. He emerged as a prototype, a model for future machines, with no goals for himself. His name is a variable, placeholder, a name for the nameless. But he wants a name.
And there’s irony there, because X wasn’t the first prototype. I don’t know what the earlier generation of robots could do if not think for themselves, but there was one poor robot given a name worse than X: They called him Proto-man.
People want to work toward goals, but it’s an unreasonable expectation. We are dropped here with no goals, except to feed ourselves, to cry for food. And we don’t get goals, unless you count the drive to reproduce. We’re lost and confused and we live life that way, making up our goals as each moment demands.
To be a prototype is to know that you have no goal. It is to live beyond good and evil, because these words have no meaning for you. It is to be a Maverick.
The entire series presents a great battle between two scientists, the builder of free robots, and the conquering creator of killing machines. And when you are the robot, it makes sense: Wily is out conquer, and he must be stopped. But when you think about it, who is the real mad scientist: The one who built tools to achieve his goals, or the one who built increasingly powerful thinking machines and then released them into the world, to do what they might?— Compiled from The Dialogues Between Bokonon and Koheleth

You are in The Mushroom Kingdom walking along on the grass when you see a Koopa Troopa, it’s walking towards you. You hop over, you flip it over onto it’s back. It lies there on it’s back, baking in the hot glare of the Angry Sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping, nor do you stomp on it to earn points. Why is that?
