I agree with Captain_Krash; that’s some quality stuff, and I’d love to know how you got that format. I look forward to seeing more of this!

Very fine work Brother Knightswordthumbsup.gif . I too like the format. It makes for easier reading on my old eyes and adds a nice atmosphere to it. I'm looking forward to more.

Thanks for the kind words brothers. The format is a page from the epub/pdf version of the Dark Angels codex which I stripped down with photoshop to get the background. It's then just a text box over with the writing. I can upload the blank page .jpg somewhere if you'd all like and share with you in pm's.

Next short story up is called The Calm before the Storm. This was written for the codex I made for my Ardent Swords chapter. The idea behind it was that you already knew the protagonist's fate due to where it was positioned in the codex in the hope that it kind of made you feel a little more for him. Below is the extract from Codex: Ardent Swords a few pages before the short story.

 

"Morgan personally led the assault on the Librarium which fell shortly and oversaw the destruction of all records therein upon a great pyre. For three days and nights these fights raged, and on the fourth day Erec stood forth issuing a challenge of single combat to Morgan the Betrayer. Morgan emerged from the daemonic ranks, a shadow of his former glory, twisted by his deeds and Masters. He answered Erec’s call by presenting the broken body of Erec’s friend, the Librarian Elandris, as a cruel taunt."

The effort you put in this story, is most commendable.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

I was going to enter this one in the 500 word Leadership challenge but then I realised the submission date had passed. Didn't realise how hard it is to condense something into 500 words. Anyway since I missed the submission date I decided to expand on it. This is my first story that features one of my own miniatures as the artwork.
