lol Jaiurtel

Considering GW is a hobby that prides itself in its literature aswell as the more visually orientated aspects of art, its pretty disappointing to see topics of this nature posted up.  ???  Ah well, no offence to anyone here...  
"These are the End Times.  The Apocalypse.  Gotterdammerung.  Ragnarok.  The Void.  King of Battles.  Jutenborg.  The Great Conflagration.  The Death of Stars.  How many names to tell of this warring end?  To tell of this violent time when Time itself is smashed asunder?" - Inquis Exterminatus.
