    Shadowsword features a pretty good example of chaos corruption towards its end, although you might want to read its prequel Baneblade first, and both books are mostly about an Imperial Guard tanker.

    Grey Knights follow...Grey Knights, and the Inquisition as they hunt down a Tzeentchian daemon. It has quite a few awesome scenes.

    The Emperor's Gift, has the Grey Knights fight chaos in the form of

    I've also heard good things about the Eisenhorn and Black Legion series.

    I don’t play the tabletop (I don’t have the time or money) and just stick to reading their books, and I’m really excited to see what GW has in store this year lore wise.

    I just finished reading The Honor of the Queen. The first chapters are a bit boring, but all in all, it’s a very fun sci-fi book.

    It’s been a while since I posted here, and I’m glad to see that Deimos, and everyone else here, have kept this little corner of the internet nice and civil. Happy birthday!

    VScode, then VScodium. I’ve tried to setup vim/neovim for web dev, but I couldn’t even install plugins without running into weird errors, so I gave up.

    I did a bit of poking around the Open Weather API with svelte JS. I’m still a very long way off from my dream of making a webapp wrapper for reddit, but at least I’m starting to learn the basics of working with API keys and whatnot.

    Also, I’ll be taking a chemistry (reteach and retake because most everyone failed it) and math exam (it’s an extra course) tomorrow, so wish me luck!

    While I can sort of sympathize with the problem of funding FOSS projects, portraying a glorified ESlint config as a “Standard” style guide and linter, and attempting to monetize it, is just wrong.

    Shouldn’t you at least be able to use ES6? After four years, it should be well supported enough.

    so you can't get off Babel unless you're using ES5 directly.
