View Full Version : Where does your faith reside?

Its a question that splits much of the empire and has lead to war on multiple occasions. Ulric or Sigmar? Which do you prefer and why? Feel free to add other Imperial gods if thats what you think is best, i.e. Taal.
Personally I prefer Sigmar just because I play an altdorf army and it fits. Also I like the tactical flexibility of Sigmar and appreciate that he forged the empire.
I have a friend who has a thing about Ulric so we often have debates on the matter.

Personally, my faith is in the Dark Prince. The Lord of Pleasure, Hedonism and Gluttony, Slaanesh. Though for my Empire Army, it is also Reiklanders so Sigmar plays a big role there.

29-11-2007, 05:34
For the Empire, it's Sigmar. I just like his 'vibe' of zealousness more than the savagery of Ulric. That and I too have an Altdorf army.

Of course, I'm first and foremost a follower of the Lord of Change...

29-11-2007, 05:52
I have faith in logic and in my will to see things done.

i have a witch hunters theme so I would assume sigmar, but were equal opportunity purgers of all faiths :)

Sigmar, Ulrich, they all come on over to Morr eventually.

Me? Vallaya.

I put my faith in fact and logic as well but fluff wise my army has to have some form of patron whatever my general believes. As its an Altdorf army Many of my troops believe in Sigmar though I have no prophets of doom/idiots in strange clothing.

My faith is with Taal. Anyone one who has the power to summon flesh eating squirrls is were my faith resides:D.

the wrath of khaine runs through my viens:evilgrin:

Oh, you mean Empire faith? I think Verena. Bastardised or not, under the hood it's still cult of Hoeth.

How amusing that no one has stood up for poor old Ulric yet.

29-11-2007, 08:21
The endless strands of fate are mine to behold, for only those with the knowledge given by the Changer of Ways can truly know Chaos. Tzeentch knows more than you could possibly understand!

If they were still a real army list maybe someone actually would... ;)

The wrath of Khorne will claim the skulls of all your weak followers of Sigmar!

Blood for the Blood God!
Skulls for the skull throne!

Whichever of the Empire god that's closest to Khaine :evilgrin:

29-11-2007, 10:59
Taal. I love nature and forests and would like nothing more than to live wild with an animal skin on my back. :p

The Dark One
29-11-2007, 11:31
Taal and Morr for the empire
other than that my favourite god would be Zork the goblin god:D

29-11-2007, 12:14
Whichever of the Empire god that's closest to Khaine :evilgrin:

Khaine then? :angel:

I'm a big fan of Verena and serving justice... but I'd probably end up serving Myrmidia and wanting to stab people and kill Sigmarites

29-11-2007, 12:29
Khaine is worshipped in the Empire IIRC.

Khaine is worshipped in the Empire IIRC.

Hm where can you find that piece of fluff?

29-11-2007, 14:02
yup, Im sigmar and Altdorf all the way too!
Poor old Ulric, he's cool, but not enough good hairy bodies to justify the conversion. (I don't rate the hairy head sprue).

How about the halfling's god of food, midly entertaining...

29-11-2007, 15:20
Hm where can you find that piece of fluff?
I seem to recall it's mentioned in Sigmar's Heirs - i'll take a look for a page reference tonight.

29-11-2007, 15:32
Not a big fan of zealots and I love wolves and middenheimers, so I do have to go with Ulric.

29-11-2007, 15:41
I wasn't too fond of the Empire until I discovered that I could have a Middenheim army. The Knights of the White Wolf and the Teutogen Guard are cool.
So for me it's Ulric.

(I recently read Hammers of Ulric and it was pretty awful, the poor writing disappointing the high hopes I had had for a novel about my favourite knightly order. If anybody has a suggestion about what else to read, it'll be greatly appreciated.)

29-11-2007, 15:52

Esmarelda, deity of hearth, home and food. A nice ale in front of a roaring fire? That'll do for me.


29-11-2007, 15:55
Khaine is worshipped in the Empire IIRC.

Which was my point :p

Its mentioned extensively in Tome of Salvation, however open worship of him is forbidden, due to the whole murder thing (so unfair...)

He is regarded as the brother of Morr and murder is seen as him stealing the souls of the dead from Morrs embrace

EmperorNorton: True the white wolf stories are awful, but at least it features a fantastic priest, even though he gets progressively more useless towards the end of the book

29-11-2007, 16:00

I know, just backing you up. I got yo' ass!

29-11-2007, 16:04

Nechoco. I think that is his name...whatever his name is, he is the God of Atheism.

God of atheism, hmm, yeh I see. Can't quite picture that one sorry.

30-11-2007, 09:38
Asuryan's wrath will claim you all. Elf pantheon all the way :)

30-11-2007, 10:03
Or, well, maybe Mork!

30-11-2007, 11:06
Ah well my Empire mercenaries worship which ever fraction pays the most, who pays the most gets the most...... untill a worrier preist comes and whips them all in to servents of sigmar. But untill then more merci fun for my army:D


30-11-2007, 12:03
In real life (now there's a novel idea) I'm a firey atheist, so I have no faith.

In Warhammer, it's with the Ancestor Gods, Ale, Beards, Gunpowder, Metal, and Stone. Guess which army I collect?

Even though it's 40K and not to mention thr fact that I'm a stalwart chaos player, the God-Emperor of Mankind of course! His psychic essense can easily bridge the gap between the realities of WFB and 40K

Although, when I get into woodelf mode I do reference Orome from the Silmarillion a lot. It's how I pretty much perceive Kurnous to be.

01-12-2007, 01:27
Im with Sigmar all the way, warrior priest ftw.

02-12-2007, 06:51
Tlazcotl and his twin brother Tepok. Glory to the bad boys of Lustria!! ;)

Got to be Sigmar, he was a courageous Warlord.

02-12-2007, 12:53

Altough, as an Asrai, Loec. He's a nice bloke, I think. :D
And everybody loves Wardancers!
No Kurnous, I don't like Wild Riders and such.
Isha's cool too, though.
As are most of the Old Ones.
And the Empire has some nice ones too...
If I were ever to play 40k, the Laughing God all the way!

Hmm... I think I'll act as the Ancient Romans did: conquer the enemy and take over their gods, the more the merrier!!

Surprisingly nobody mentioned Nurgle yet.. luckily...

Fiery Atheism? Then Nechoco, Chaos Lord of Atheists, Doubt and all that nie stuff is the Deity for you!

We have all the "internet cool" of being an atheist rather than a dirty thiest*, but still have a god to grant us magic powahs and such!

*Let it be known that Freak knows theists are not actually dirty. Most have perfectly acceptable hygenic tendencies.

Walk into the nearest ale house and cross your fingers when the wench walks by. If you get a subtle, wordless nod of the head, then the gaming room is open and prayers to Renald are being offered with each throw of the dice or turn of the wheel. It doesn't translate to Fantasy, but that's my favorite God.

02-12-2007, 16:39
Ulric of course :D. The teutogen guard are an awesome proxy for greatswords and I love the middenheim winter theme. I've converted plenty of swordsmen to also wield hammers and all my champs wear cloaks as an extra indicator that they are champs:).

But Khaine and Loec also get my sympathy when I'm playing with elves:p.

In the end, all followers must pay the toll to enter Morr's Realm.

Well, first choice would have to be Sigmar. I always loved the badass Conan thing he had going, and the Sigmarite Warrior priests are just freaking awesome.

But then again, my deep love of all things wolves pulls me toward Ulric...

Hey Sigmar worshipped Ulric despite the fact he himself later became a God, so can I just worship both? :D

All hail he who first cast the runes.....

Of course if it was early on a Monday morning I could of said the great maw as worshipping a comet sounds like fun.
