For those who do not know it, Inspirational Friday is a (generally) fortnightly event within its home in the Chaos Space Marines forum (but open to all members of the B&C), in which a topic is set for members to write short (or long if the muse takes you) fluff/fan-fic pieces about their war bands, characters and models.

And here begins our ninth challenge of Inspirational Friday 2018: When Old Meets New
Astartes have been corrupted and manipulated by, and entered into the worship of the Chaos Gods since the Horus Heresy: the Sons of Horus, the World Eaters, the Thousand Sons, the Iron Warriors, the Night Lords, the Word Bearers, the Death Guard, the Alpha Legion and the Emperor’s Children.
And over ten thousand years more have fallen. The Seekers of Truth fell prey to Tzeentch and became the Scourged. The 8th company of the Emperor’s Wolves were corrupted by Khorne to become the Blood Disciples. Slaanesh took the Shining Blades and turned them into the Flawless Host and the Purged worship Nurgle. Then there are those who do not worship the gods of Chaos, but have fallen from grace and turned from the Imperium for various reasons: the Company of Misery, the Red Corsairs and more.
For those who have been fighting the Long War since the Purge and the flight to the Eye there is great pride - as well as ten millennia of corruption and madness - and they look upon those who fell later as ‘Thinbloods’.
Tell us a tale of the old meeting the new. Be it outright combat, manipulation, comradeship...
As judge of this theme I’m keen to see stories which are not mere pissing contests :D I’d like to see how Astartes have changed over the ten millennia, and what differentiates both the ‘old guard’ from the newly enlightened and those who have worshipped a particular deity for all that time from those more recently favoured (or indeed those who have shunned the gods for ten thousand years compared to new renegades).IF2018: When Old meets New runs until the 18th of May.
Let us be inspired.
And who shall judge this new challenge? That decision lies with our current judge: Me.
The winner of IF2018: When Old Meets New shall claim the Octed amulet:gallery_63428_7083_6894.png
...and the honour of judging the next challenge (which they can forfeit to me if they wish).
Please submit entries in the main IF thread linked to in the Original Post.
