Hello hello and welcome to another Inspirational Friday. Once again we have some really nice contributions and it shows how different are the perspectives on how looks like a chaos stronghold and what means to each frater. We have seen space hulks, shanty towns, daemon worlds, a lot of things indeed.
This week's victor is Carrack and his Hell Holdfast. I have selected him for this week's award since his post is quite original, it is written from the perspective of Throne Agents, the infiltration was indeed a good touch and I liked his goal to present the various strata of society present on that world. The corruption or "silencing" of Agent Delta was just the cherry on top.
Great job Carrack. Step forth and claim your reward.
A honorable mention goes to leinmann and his Cogs of Madness because who doesn't like to read more about daemonic forge worlds, and to Cormac Airt and his world of Amentius, because... well no secret here, I love anything that has a Thousand Sons written upon it. He he.
For this week I will heed the council of a frater and answer to his request. Kierdale asked me to have a special week for Inspirational Friday, so here it goes:
Inspirational Friday - 14/11/2014 - NEMESIS OF CHAOS
Who is the archenemy of our chaos warband, the nemesis of our lord, the main rival of our chaos host. As much as a warband is shaped by its leadership and devotion to the Dark Gods so it is shaped also by the enemies it confronts, especially if it crossed time and again the blades with their archenemy. It is this interaction, the interaction between hunter and hunter, between challenger and challenged, between life and death at the hands of a spirited enemy which molds the warband into what it is nowadays.
For this week's Inspirational Friday I want you to write about the archenemy of your warband, the very nemesis which has ruined time and again your plans for conquest and daemonhood. Write about the foe which stalks every movement of your warband, the foe who costed you the lives of many a warrior, of the nemesis which makes even a powerful Chaos Lord question his plans.
In the history of 40k there have been many such nemesis, the Inquisition, legion rivalries, fellow lords, the impressive skill of a regiment of the Imperial Guard, an astartes chapter, a xeno faction or cult. Many, many times have our warriors crossed the blades with their nemesis, many daemon princes were sent into the warp, screaming the name of the foe that felled them and many of our daemons were banished in the Warp by the intervention of a mighty foe.
There is no shame in loosing, it gives context and depth to our warband, to have an enemy, to have a nemesis. In short write here who this foe is, who stalks in the nightmares of your warriors, whose name is like a curse upon your lips. Tell us who your nemesis is.
