Chapter One:

“A beautiful planet.? Muttered Brother Captain Bors.

Wreathed in haloes of smooth asteroids, Novema, the only planet in the Novema System, rotated slowly. It was a tempest of green, white, and blue, an image of such purity that any artist would weep to paint it.

The holy perfection of the planet was marred by an ugly large darkness, obscuring the northern hemisphere of Novema, spreading slowly downwards even as the large Captain watched.

Clasping his hands behind his back, he watched the serene planet for a little while more, beneath the arched view ports of the Helhammer’s viewing bays before turning in an abrupt about face.

War had come to Novema.

+++

The assembly bay was packed, filled with the hustle and bustle of preparation. The cacophony of shells being loaded and pouches being zipped, merged chaotically with the shriek of experimental chainsaw rotations and the clink of grenades being primed.

Throughout it all, the smooth hiss of pistons pervaded. The assembled might of a thirty Space Marine taskforce had no business being quiet.

There was a uniformed variety in the bay. Straggly haired Astartes mingled freely with those with almost entirely bionic heads. Tall and short, big and skinny were beginning to don their war harnesses in the spirit of brotherhood.

Every marine present was a veteran of their parent chapter, a champion of humanity, a slayer of hundreds. Yet everyone was but a initiate, a legionnaire.

Doom Wolf jostled with Dark Angel for space, as Imperial Fist and Blood Angel chattered.

War had called, and the Legio had answered.

+++

“Welcome, to your first rite of battle Brothers.? The Captain’s voice was a low aggressive growl that immediately cut through the clatter.

“I am aware that all of you are held in esteem by your Chapters, but know this. The Legio is your family now and you have not proved anything yet.?
A thunderous roar came from the back of the assembly bay, as a member with the badge of the Space Wolves vocalized his disapproval.

Chuckling to himself, Captain Bors pinched the bridge of his nose and waved the Space Wolf to silence.

“Ok pup, what be your name?? asked Bors.

“Erik Lupfen!? the Space Wolf cried proudly.

Pacing towards the new initiate, chuckling with false humor, Bors flexed his fist before dealing a stinging uppercut to the bottom of Erik’s jaw.

Not relenting, he followed with an armored knee to the groin, following with a swift jab at the nose.

Having recovered from the Captain’s original blow, Erik turned the blow aside and hunched down, lowering his center of gravity.

Taking a step back, Bors nodded at the Space Wolves quickness before throwing out a violent kick and knocking the initiate out cold.

“We call that NCO justice. I expect all the newly promoted sergeants to be able to deal with any problems that may arise in similar fashion.? He addressed to the slightly shocked ring of onlookers.

Shocked except for one figure. While colored in the livery of any Legio member, and a kneecap painted white, he was set apart from the others by a sergeant’s pip on his blast collar and a single ruby red drop of blood framed by fangs on his shoulder pad.

Sergeant Caleb.

“Would you agree with me Brother Sergeant Caleb??

Shaking a long mane of coarse black hair, the Sergeant rose to his full height, eyeing the new recruits with barely constrained contempt.

“Of course I bloody disagree with you sir. Why a fist when I can put a bolt round through their thick skulls??

Nodding in agreement, Bors fixed a burning stare at the assembled recruits.

“Welcome to the Legio. You aren’t worth anything. Yet?

+++

A glowing wireframe holosphere of Novema shimmered in front of the strike force, rotating slowly so that every detail of the planet could be absorbed by the rapt audience.

Glowing arrow icons of black and red dotted the surface, impaling themselves in mountains and hills, rivers and oceans. Reams of scrolling text passed through the arrows, listing enemy troop concentrations, weather forecasts, and coordinates.

The most prominent sigil was a massive Aquila, perched imperiously on their drop zone.

Caleb glanced at his squad.

They were a mix, of that he was sure. A haphazard collection of weapons protruding oddly, chainblades and power axes rustling with boltguns and flamethrowers. There was no uniformity.

“I believe that we are all here. I see Ekton and Zakias in front, Tyrar, Agis, and Domus skulking towards the end of the benches. Move up you bastards, this information is important.?

Feathers slightly ruffled the tail end of the squad moved up in a clattering of steel benches.

“I appreciate that you are new to the Legio and our…practices. I also appreciate, that you may not find my tone fitting of an officer. I’d appreciate it however, if you kept your mouths quiet and listen. We will have Dark Angels and Space Wolves working together, puritans and radicals side by side. By the Emperor, a Relictor and an Imperial First were in the same squad once but their will be no argument brooked. The only person you hate with an overwhelming fury is the enemy and I.? whispered Caleb.

Taking a pause to catch his breath, the Sergeant pointed at the Aquila sigil with all the fury of a war god.

“This is our objective. Unlike the rest of the strike force we are deploying separately into the northern rayne-woods of Umbria. You have not met the rest of the squad but believe you me, they are down there preparing an LZ for the Thunderhawks.?

Waving vaguely with one ham sized fist, Caleb continued on.

“Novema came under cultist attack four months ago. Legio listening posts picked up on Noveman distress signals and sent a general call to arms. Seeing as the Helhammer had been in dry dock preparing to pick up a fresh batch of initiates we set off for Novema and dropped in an advance party of five, the remainder of my squad. They maintained regular contact with us until enemy forces meant that they had to maintain strategic silence.?

“We warped out immediately from Novema and headed back to Chapel Gate, to pick up you lot before doubling back. The Helhammer only ever has a dozen marines at most when we haven’t picked up recruits and at the time, with the bloody business of Antioch, it was just Bors, my squad, and I.?

“Now that we’re back we have a predicament. A bloody warpstorm’s moved in while we were out, and we only have a week or two before it completely encapsulates Novema. In that time we must evacuate all civilians and our advance teams as well as causing as many enemy casualties as we can before evaccing.?

Glowering through his augmetic eye, Caleb drew both boltguns out of their holsters and racked them.

“Gentlemen, our Thunderhawks await.?

That's the problem with the internet. Back in the good ol'days, each village had to endure it's own idiot. But now one has to deal with idiots from villages around the world.

Brilliant Hasoroth! I look forward to chapter 2 (Although no mention of Helias. Yet...)

Keep it up.

Hmm, we Welsh don't have much patience. It's something that's certainly blighted my painting skills *Why won't the paint dry? Gah! I'll have to put it next to the fire to dry quicker* :evil:

I wonder if our kill team will be "friendly" to eachother...

You should, for they are awesome. I'm building my apocalypse army, in ugly colors. I even have a lil' zigfried in it, he's in a razorback squad. I'll post some pics from the game and after I get the remaining termies and assaulters painted, maybe a big group army shot.

I can understand fully whyy school's currently driving Hasoroth down. I'm just keeping my head above water with Chemistry coursework and Physics next week :teehee:. I may become less productive on this forum. :lol:

I wonder what Nephren-ka has sent to Merkava about his "captain" and our comanding officer...

And that is why I am soooo glad I'm not in school anymore. I got my Grade 12, joined the army and ten years later got blown up! Moral of the story boys and girls...stay in school!!!! Course my disability pension pays for my hobby! And they even made me a Sgt. I think Neph has something in the original thread so I might scan through there. Three guys left and I can paint. I'm going for a week long conference next week so my creative juice will be stewing
