"They came out of the dark between the stars, destroyed the Xenos scum that we had been fighting for two long months, and then left. They were clearly Astartes, but their armor was of an ancient pattern- black like the night with some sort of crimson wing or sword on the shoulder. Never a word did they say, save for a single vox transmission as the left the planet, "The Forgotten have returned to fulfill our vows." They were gone as suddenly as they arrived." - Report from Comru PDF Colonel Urla Vannick, Comru Xenos Raids M41
"You've heard the recording, that's all they said. We were there raiding along the borders, but those damned black Space Marines came and killed all my boys. Why are you asking me about your own troops?" - Interrogation exerpt of void pirate Kaneor the Faithleech, Ordos Hereticus Ultima Segmentum detention
"I've never heard of these Forgotten, or whatever they are called. They appeared on my planet, slaughtered my hand-picked retainers, and left me in a life pod. Of course, I was lucky enough to be picked up by you..." - Testimonty from Interrogator-Chaplain Evora's redemption of the Fallen Tremian, former Sergeant of the 1st Legion and lately Governor-General of Cylpa (Ultima Segmentum)
Of late in the Ultima Segmentum, a mysterious force of Astartes has appeared. No known Chapter has been deployed to the engagements where these Space Marines have been roperted, nor have any Deathwatch deployments been authorized that match the scope and resources used. Xenos raids, local rebellions, and Chaos incursions have all been thwarted by these "Forgotten", as they so label themselves in the single message that has been received in all confirmed contacts. The livery on blurred recording does not match any current known Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes, though it bears some relation to the Heresy-era 1st Legion.
Further investigation is warranted. Inquisitors Kembrah, Felkir, and Thoren have been entrusted by the Conclave Ordos Ultima to investigate and report.
- Order from Ordos Ultima Headquarters to Inquisitor Thoren, Ordos Hereticus
"Supreme Grand Master, I have uncovered a mystery in the Ultima Segmentum. Along with Squad Helver of the Deathwing and Squad Ysil of the Ravenwing I will make haste to determin if it is indeed a problem worthy of our attention. For the Emperor and the Lion!" - Vox transmission from Interrogator-Chaplain Evora to the Rock.
Alright, enough fluff. So after over a decade away, I started up 40k again. Basically I was reading Horus Heresy novels and thought that making a 30k army would be fun. So two years ago I began scouring eBay and bitz sellers for stuff on the cheap and had built up a decent sized Dark Angels force. This 30k army has transitioned to 40k, with the release of 8th edition and me finding a guy at work who also plays 40k. So this will be my log of stuff. The first post after this will be an explanation of my painting thought process/concept for the army, after that will be the fluff, and then a continually updated post that will show my leaders. Thanks for looking.
