Oh I see, So if you have a Fortification that MAKES the gene seed it can be outfitted with every conciveable defense the Imperium has to offer.
Now if they only STORE the gene seed then i guess we can just put it in vending machines that require photo ID on random planets. And If the Virus Bomb was a weapon of last resort It was a poor choice considering the Marines were capable of surviving for weeks inside the fortress. It's actually pretty dumb unless your trying to write a second rate 40k novel. I wonder what these Tacticly Savvy Deathwing Base designers were thinking when they designed this?
Deathwing Genius #1 "OK we need a last resort weapon that will prevent the gene seed from falling into enemy hands. Any Ideas?"
Deathwing Realist "How 'bout we have a big melta bomb that will turn the base into slag so it will never be able to be used?"
Deathwing Genius #1 "Hmmm thats ok but it would be a shame to blow up such a swell base."
Deathwing Genius #2 "Maybe if we smother the gene seeds in Milk Chocolate any foes who invade the base will think their chocolate covered Apricots and eat them?"
Deathwing Genius #1 "Hmmm not bad, very devious, but it would never work. Now if we had some Dark Chocolate we'd be getting somewhere.
Deathwing Realist "Errr How bout we just put it in a heavily defended military instilation, with more than 5 of our battle brothers defending it, that is close to other military stongpoints so it could be quickly reinforced incase of attack?"
Deathwing Genius #1 "Naa that will never work too obvious."
Deathwing Genius #2 "Oh I got it! Lets put a Virus Bomb in the base that will wipe out the everyiving thing on the planet, everything except foes in power armor."
Deathwing Realist "Hmm considering every one of our foes that would want the gene seed uses power armor I don't think thats such a good idea. "
Deathwing Genius #1 "wipe out the everyiving thing on the planet, everything except foes in power armor.... Brilliant!!!"
Deathwing Genius #2 "Brilliant!!!"
Deathwing Realist "yeah I'm gonna go see if the Space Wolves are hiring.."
Seriously If you think about it for just over 30 seconds This book makes less sence than Caddyshack 2. I really can't Believe this tripe came from someone they call the Official "Lore Master" of GW. I think I should check their Help wanted section of their website. Im fairly certain that the position of Games Workshop "Common Sence Master" is still available.
