So far so good! I gave it a read over when you asked for help, and here are some observations:

-Perhaps a few crew members are a bit friendlier than usual.
-I doubt the imperials use names like Giny or Sammy. I thik it would be Virginia and Samwise. Here are a few links for "imperialish" names.

- Also, I think Oman is a far too "humanish" name for an eldar planet. While there is no official eldar language guide, something Tolkienish is always good!
-I'm not sure how they work exactly, but Imperial laser weapons seem to be , according to scientific observation and Dawn of war 2, fire an energy blast along a laser. In effect, this makes a firing akin to the "instant energy beam" stereotype of weapon, as shown in the newer 40k games and the lances in this one (Which seem to be laser lances, which are upscaled laser weapons) .
-While not technically binding, I think arsmen on Imperial ships use Shotcannons. These are special shotguns that fire monomolecular-edged shrapnel to tear apart enemy infantry without damaging the starship's inner workings in the process. While not much good against heavy armour, this makes them shred unarmoured targets with frightening ease. Kind of like a cheap man's Deathspinner.

Please help me change skirmish to be customisable. Its very important for PVE players.

when in doubt sprinkle liberally with latin for officers and there's the old staple of xxxxxxxx von/van _______(insert know world name here) thanks to half the crew being born on the ship the famlies surname may often devolve to just where great great grandperents ware drarfted from the origanl or proper surname lost in a web of mingaled shipbord blood lines

I'm sorry guys but all this writing mentally exhausted me. I need to take a break Sunday, but if anyone wants to post a story on the story page, feel free.

Owl asked for advice, so I wrote a few pointers.

Its polling time! I won't be posting it today, but I will tomorrow.

Here are the options that come to mind:

1. We have a fight scene from the perspective of the the Firebrand and her crew.

2. We have a fight scene from the perspective of the Phantom Sight and her crew.

3. Whatever you think would be good.
