Default Vimes's 40k Quiz of Doom (Answers Posted!)

Well, maybe not of doom, but it's pretty hard. The winner or anyone who manages to get 18/20 correct will revieve karma as well as bragging rights. The questions range from moderatly difficult to incredibly obscure. PM me your answers. The competition closes this time next week.

Good luck!


1) What is an Electoo?

2) How many cards are in the Emperor’s Tarot?

3) Most of the Emperor’s soul exists as an entity in the Warp. What is the name of its presence there? This is in the same sense that a Chaos God or deamon is an entity.

4) What has to happen to someone for them to become an Illuminati?

5) The military arm of the Adeptus Mechanicus is known as the ________ Legion.(not the titan legion, the infantry and armored forces)

6) The Cursus of Alganar, a huge black ring-shaped mound almost half a mile across, and covered in carvings of intertwined figures is one of three mythical Gateways of the Gods. What famous Imperial Guard world is it located on?

7) Who is the most famous and tactically capable Imperial Guard officer in the history of the Imperium?

8) What is the name of the cruiser that escaped to report Horus’s treachery to the Emperor?

9) Who commands the most successful band of Ork Freebooter Pirates?

10) The Iron Cage was a fortress built by what legion as a trap for what legion?

11) During the Age of Apostasy, who organized the Reign of Blood?

12) The Blackstone Fortresses are also known as?

13) Leman Russ had a rivalry with what other primarch?

14) Of which primarch was only a single hand discovered after his death?

15) What primarch was the last of the 18 know primarchs to be discovered?

16) What legion turned to Chaos first?

17) Which primarch was an albino?

18) Name any four types of ork Oddboyz.

19) What Imperial Guard regiment first encountered the Nightbringer

And for the grand finale, an especially difficult question.

20) What is the name, rank, and legion of the marine who reported Horus’s treachery to the Emperor, and how many marines did he escape with?

Edit: the smilie with the sunglasses is supposed to be an eight.

umm PM me the answers don't write them out here. Please edit your post immediatly so that you don't give the answer away to anyone.

I actually disagree with your analysis there. The sides were correct, but you got the victor wrong. I'll post the true story after the competition. It is cool though.

I can safely say that my relatively new status as a 40K player means most of this goes waaay over my head. *sigh* back to research, maybe in another 8 months or so... still gonna give it a shot though.

I think I know the answers to 17 of those questions. Therefore I'm not entering until I work one of the others out.
