THE VENGEANCE CRUSADE
 

 

 

Ok, since the 1st version of the Vengeance Crusade is officially mocked up with random updates from me... I might as well leave it in the tattered pages of history, and like the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel... time for a "reboot" so in this thread I will place the Background story development, some WIP, finished BT models, and make this the official blog spot for this Crusade, that I hope to update atleast once a month until the Crusade is officially over.

 

So for now, Fluff...

 

++ Warning: ahead of this is a small wall of text. Skip if you want to. ++

THE VENGEANCE CRUSADE

 


Prelude: + Evil Stirs... +

 

     It is the 41st Millennia and humanity is on the verge of extinction. A Dark Age spreads across the once resplendent Imperium of Man, but even in this dark hour, hope still strives. Numerous Space Marine Chapters, the defenders of Humanity, fight across the galaxy, defending the Imperium from the onslaught of Daemons, Xenos and Traitors, and protecting it from the ruination of Heretics. Among them are the fiercest and most zealous Crusading Chapter of all, the mighty Chapter of the Black Templars.

   The Black Templars have crusaded since their founding in the aftermath of the Horus Heresy. They have attempted to reclaim what the Imperium had lost during those dark days when Brother fought Brother, when gods marched among then and fought against one another, and laid waste to entire systems across the galaxy. In this 10,000 year old Crusade, the enemies of this noble Chapter have plotted and schemed. Now they have grown numerous and powerful and the full extent of their treachery is about to unfold.

    One of the Imperium’s worst enemies have arranged the fall of this mighty Chapter and watch all that it has stood for turn into ashes, all of its glories torn asunder, and deal a mighty blow against them and the Imperium. He has all the pieces in place, he only needs to set the bait and lure the Knights to the trap. If he succeeds, the fruits of his labours would be insurmountable, if he fails; he cannot fail. He must not fail. He is now being watched by the gods themselves, awaiting his glorious victory. His actions will set the lives of countless innocent souls to destruction and damnation; his offering to the gods will be paid by the souls of an entire Sector and the blood of a second-founding Chapter. He says a silent prayer to his dark masters, and damns the God-Emperor as he incinerates the citizens of Jerulas

 

What you just read (if you read it), is my attempt at a sort of short story for the fluff for my Crusade and what could be a poor attempt at creative writing tongue.png

 

but still I hope you enjoy and if you want me to continue the self made short story of the Vengeace Crusade, tell me so... smile.png

Agree, this sounds very interesting. Before you get all texted up, I think it was Panzer posted a template for crusades that adds some visual pizzazz to your text that you might consider adopting. I think eventually a number of us were going to adopt the template as a show of force.

 

So, do carry on!

Off to a promising start brother, looking forward to seeing more of your vengeance crusade!

It's in the Eternal Crusader pinned topic up top.

 

 

I'd get you a link, but I seem to be having difficulty using the dialogue boxes in editing, e.g. inserting links or images. Right now, I'm creating my larger posts in Word or Notepad and copying over the  html code to duplicate functionality. The posts are fine, but the dialogue boxes just hang  on me. Not sure what's going on.

Since I got good reviews from the Prelude, here's the 1st Chapter of the short story The Vengeance Crusade

Chapter 1: Personal Log 160528


   The Inquisition has always had an ambiguous relationship with the Emperor’s Angels of Death. Some Inquisitors use collaboration and cooperation, some use a common goal or a common enemy, and some even go as far as using treachery and blackmail to get the support of the Space Marines. For the Imperium, the Space Marines have always been its most stalwart guardian, the immovable object that has anchored humanity’s survival and the sword that cleaves into the heart of its enemies. For an Inquisitor to gain the support of an entire Space Marine Chapter, speaks volumes about his charisma, capabilities and power, because a Space Marine Chapter is as independent to the bureaucratic entanglement of the Imperium as the Inquisitors themselves. Each Chapter follows the strict guideline of one of their ancestral demi-gods, Roboute Guilliman, a mighty son of the God-Emperor and the master of the Ultramarines and their successors, his doctrines divided the old Astartes Legions into Chapters comprising of a thousand Space Marines each, they would have the capability to man their own weapons, pilot their own ships and wage war for the God-Emperor in whatever battlefield of their choosing, thus, making them one of the most powerful factions of mankind that is completely independent of the Imperium.

 

   A single Space Marine is a powerful towering figure, he stands taller than any unaugmented human, moves faster than any normal man and they are powerful enough to stand toe to toe with a monstrous Ork leader, to an Inquisitor, it would be an assurance of victory over any foe if the Space Marines are on their side. But alas, even the indomitable and fearless Space Marines can fall to heresy, much like Horus the favored son of the God-Emperor and the destroyer of everything that the Imperium of Man once stood for, during the fires of the greatest war humanity has ever known, the Horus Heresy. It was after these dark times that the organization, that I am proud to be a part of, was born, the Lords of Terra and the soldiers of the Imperial Creed created the Inquisition, the order that would root out the seeds of deviancy, heresy and Chaos from within and outside of the Imperium before it could grow and destroy us all.

 

It has always been my fervent belief that the strongest enemies of the Imperium of Man lies not in the enemy that we could see, but from that which hides in the shadows biding its time with patience and scorn and suddenly striking silently and mercilessly until there is nothing left of the God-Emperor’s worlds. Now, a sadistic trail of murder and corruption has arisen that pointed me and my investigations to the world of Jerulas, a once hostile world which, with the aid of a Space Marine Chapter, has returned back to the light of the God-Emperor and now stands as a stalwart bastion for the Isale Sub-sector.

 

A shadow has crept into the dark recesses of this world, a phantom of malice that is attempting to once again pitch the Imperium into the void of extinction, and bring the mightiest empire in the galaxy to its knees. I must uncover this conspiracy, and I must not fail, but first I must gain the aid of the Lords of Jerulas, the Black Templars of the Adeptus Astartes, because if I fail, then this world will burn, and the seal of the Inquisition shall see it so.

Also, added changes to the front page as suggested by Honda. (Thanks btw smile.png )
Added the Crusade Badge and will soon work on the Crusade Banner as soon as I get the model for Marshal Hydatius finished. Will probably have the update sometime later this week. And will get Chapter 2 up as soon as I get the draft finished...

But for now... enjoy and give me feedback.

So another year has come and I've been busy with all the stuff that has been happening in real life. But now a break and a small update of what's been going on in the Crusade.
A quick preview of what I've been up to lately:

I managed to get my new Marshal (and most of his weapons) painted and got the Honour Guard painted as well, but I shall keep them under wraps until it's time to unveil the Vengeance Crusade Banner.

I was planning on making a Marshal Godhelm and while I had this model as Marshal Ludoldus, alcohol kicked in and I decided to rip off the crown I previously placed on the models head, and spray painted him in the tool shed the result:

While I was quite pleased with the results, I still don't know why I placed the cross thingy on his forehead, now he looks like a Gundam tongue.png What do you think? keep it on, or take it off?

Also, 1st game of the year coming up, full mechanised Templar list vs Unknown...

2015 points (was planning on 2014, but it was too hard on both parties since majority of units have rounded numbers)

Vengeance Crusade Templar Strike Force:

  • HQ
  • Marshal Godhelm (Helbrecht rule)
  • 5-man Honour Guard Squad + Chapter Banner
  • Troops
  • 10-man Tactical Crusader Squad (Plasmagun + Plasma Cannon - Sergeant with Combi-Plasma + Storm Bolter) + Rhino + extra Storm Bolter
  • 10-man Crusader Squad (Meltagun + Power Sword - Sword Brother with Power Fist) + Rhino + extra Storm Bolter
  • 5-man Crusader Squad (Missile Launcher + Flamer - Sword Brother with Power Maul) + Razorback + Twin-Linked Lascannon + extra Storm Bolter
  • Elite
  • Assault Terminator + 3 Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields
  • Venerable Dreadnought - Missile Launcher + Twin-Linked Lascannon + Extra Armour (Drop Pod (empty))
  • Fast Attack
  • Stormtalon + Skyhammer Missiles
  • Heavy Support
  • Land Raider + MultiMelta + Extra Armour
  • Stormraven + Multimelta + Assault Cannon

Total: 2015 pts.

Will write the result of the battle later, Happy Hunting to all other Templars out there as well...

edit: Posted this while not putting pictures... still not sober yet folks!!! biggrin.png

Great work on this one! Inspiring, ornate and dynamic! I really like the cross/forehead, cloak and sword.

 

May I ask: Where is that cloak from? I assume the helmet and sword are conversion?

Hmm... I like him, but that may be because I'm specifically looking to make a Captain that looks like he has a 40k-ified Gundam helmet...

Thanks Arthanor 

The sword is also from the Praetor models from FW, but that is the one meant for the Terminator Clad Praetor just a weapon swap

the cloak is from the Chaos Terminator sprue, just cleaned and trimmed a bit to fit the back housing for the Back Pack, and ofcourse ritually cleaned by the Master of Sanctity, prayed over by 1,000 penitent souls, and washed clean with the boiling blood and sweat of St. Sabastian Thor ;)

The Helmet is a conversion, and they are all parts from the Templar upgrade sprue.

 

Hmm... I like him, but that may be because I'm specifically looking to make a Captain that looks like he has a 40k-ified Gundam helmet...

 

And you've provided a good insight on how to do that!

 

I certainly didn't mean for a "Gundam" look, I was actually trying to make the Firepower iteration of Helbrecht's tiara/crown, High Marshal Ludoldus but somehow I ended up something very far away from it, and more in-line with a 40k Gundam.... but I guess its fine, as long as people know he's a Templar ;)

 

And Victory in the 2015 pts. game as well...

Fought a decent Tyranid army, player was going to use the old Tyranid book for the last time and decided my First would be his Last. So I happily oblidged.

Don't have his list handy but off the top of my head the Units were Tervigons, heaps and heaps of Gaunts, a Deathleaper, 1 Tyrant with a Heavy Venom Cannon, Tyranid Warriors, and a mob of Carnifexes. Even in their old book, they were fightening.

The Deployment: Dawn of War, the mission: A Crusade :D Nids goes first D:

 

Not going to post the entire game as it ended at the 4th Turn because the place needed to close and we started late. So I'll just post the Highlights.

  • Turn 1 Templar shooting mostly, with only effective Tyranid shooting being a Carnifex Heavy Venom Cannon glancing a Rhino, a Tervigon suffers a lot of wounds from the Land Raiders barrage...
  • Turn 2 Tyranid Death Leaper comes from nowhere, Gaunts swarm from (literally) everywhere, bunch of Rippers provide distraction by Deep Striking within my deployment zone, Tervigons rush onward with the incoming swarm, Carnifexes loom closer with their Venom Cannons in tow. My Templars hold their ground and some disembark through the back of their transports, hoping the Gaunts crash through the tanks like water on rocks, and fire at the incoming swarm, Fliers enter the game.
  • Turn 3 Terminators, Crusaders the Marshal and his Honour Guard all charge this turn, using High Marshal Helbrecht's Crusade of Wrath and Warlord Trait, Sword of the Imperium, Dreadnought is used to stop the Rippers. The Warriors, more Gaunts, 1 Tervigon and the Carnifex mob all die at this Turn. Templar survivors consolidate on objectives. Fliers take a big toll on the enemy Giant type units.
  • Turn 4 (Last) Crusaders awaits assault from more incoming Nids, but got lucky after claiming objectives since they got a Grav Wave Generator (halves Assault Distance) and Nids suffered some Casualties in Overwatch and failed their Assault. Tervigon tried Assaulting the Land Raider, but proved not enough for the venerable vehicle (took 2 HP though :P) Retaliation from Templar fire was punishing, Land Raider backed off, and unleashed all guns at the Tervigon, backed up by Plasma fire from an incoming Crusader Tactical Squad. Assault Terminators finish off a Squad of Gaunts, and their Tervigon overlord. Stormraven & Stormtalon unleash their fury on the roving Hive Tyrant, but even Melta shots proved ineffective to its tough hide. Death Leaper cleared off some Crusaders in the back field as well. (rolled 1's)

Game ended, Templars holding 2 out of 3 objectives and Tyranids only.

Nice 1st Game and good riddance to an old menace... time for a new menacing Menace to menace our Local Meta :P

Good Luck to everyone hunting Tyranids out there.

Wow! it's been a
looooooooooooooong time since I've updated this thread...
been in a couple of bouts (but no tourneys tongue.png) and added quite a few things on the ETL III list (get ready Sons of Lion!)
 
I could give a good rundown of what I could.... er.... 'help to the cause' but there are quite a few things that I'm not so sure I could finish building by the time ETL III starts.
 
And at the moment there is no update to the Vengeance Crusade short story as of yet... having writers block, and trying to find some inspiration in the HH series novels
(which btw, give Betrayer a try! its a REALLY GOOD read!)
 
At the moment I'll just introduce some of the new (and old) additions to the Crusade, and a short background story of how they got there....

so if someone would be so kindly as to help a brother Templar out, that would be much appreciated smile.png
here's the 'hard copy' of the Banner btw:
 
Its not that good, but I also took into consideration that I'd need to paint this onto a Banner and that putting in too much small details might be hazardous for my health tongue.png

Agree. The Marshal is awesome anyway, but nothing says "you're dead" like three 50 Kg metal balls colliding with your current location.

 

I really like how you painted him up.

Nice work! I liked the little intro. Especially the paragraph talking about the crusader and how it was offensive that enemies would come back to Jerulas. One little thing that's a pet peeve of mine: name dropping. Your crusade has a lot of character, you don't need many big names to give more to it.

 

Onto the models: Impressive! You have a knack for dynamic posing, whereas I usually end up with either "awkward" or stiff. And I really like the banner too! Great work on the painting, and on making it look like a chapter banner. I need to steal that little shield idea!

One little thing that's a pet peeve of mine: name dropping. Your crusade has a lot of character, you don't need many big names to give more to it.

Yeah... I normally don't give names to Squad members, but I do give names to the Sergeants and HQ characters, the Emperor's Champion definitely deserves a name though, especially since he proved he can do 38 Armour Saves a shooting phase without clocking a single wound. (yeah the Ork player couldn't believe it either :D) As in the case of the Honour Guard, they have performed well for me so far, including a kill tally of 2 full squad of Ork Boyz, Vanguard Veterans, and a plethora of other troop type units... the best part is that in most of them, they don't even lose a single squad member...

Looks awsome and love it! Is that a chain fist on the master of sanctity. I cant see well becase of phone. Also how has he worked for you in games? The model looks so beautiful that I have the urge to buy everytime I go on gw's site. smile.png

 

The model is beautiful... he used to have a Power Axe until GW decided to scrub our Chaplain builds for a weaker variant... now I run him as a Terminator Captain with a Power Maul and a Chainfist... still not as awesome as the original Chaplain but he works best in the field as a beatstick against both infantry and vehicles.

 

Thanks for all the comments so far!

Keep Crusading!

Oh! I think you misunderstood my comment. What I meant by "name dropping" is integrating special characters like Helbrecht/Grimaldus/Ludoldus or important places/relics. It needs to be done sparingly, otherwise it looks weird when your crusade is the special one getting time from all the big guys. On second reading, I'm not sure why I mentioned it though, Jerulas and Helbrecht are big names, but your use of them is pretty cool.

I am all in favor of naming your models, I do that too! (And love your encrypted answer! That made me laugh!)
