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
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...
