The command bridge of the Dominion of Hate was silent as the message played out. The bridges crew, both Astartes and mortal alike stood stock still, their eyes fixed on the holographic green image as it played out. Only the ships minimum servitor crews were still in motion, their limited cogitators not programmed to show any interest to the astropathic communications relayed to the ship's command. As the message finished its call for help the bridge remained in silence, all waiting to see who of the three commanders would speak first. All were surprised when it was the wizened High Captain.
" We must send help," his stern voice said as he stared pointedly across the holographic image at the other captain in the room, " We owe the Heralds of Devastation an honour debt. One that must be repaid!" His opponent took the bait.
" An honour debt as old as the Heresy, or close enough to mean so little now. We are too few, and those we do have are of my Primaris brothers, we owe no such debt." the giant on the other side of the command deck roared in a belicose tone.
" You are part of the Chapter, are you not? Or is the claim there is no Eleventh House only appropriate when you so wish?" the wizened captain demanded. The Primaris Captain on the other side of the deck drew himself up to his considerable height. Even amoungst his notably taller Primaris kin he was a giant. He positively dwarfed the High Captain of the Fourth House. He was about to retort when a stern voice from the shadows commanded them both to stop.
" Enough," the skull helmed warrior demanded from the darkened corner where his black baroque armour blended with the shadows. " This... bickering is unbecoming of both of you. Stop acting like children and start acting like Captains of the Star Leopards." his words were as a stinging slap to the two captains and they fell into silence. " We will send aid," the Master of Sanctity said before turning abruptly and leaving the room. He didn't even wait to hear the mumbled, " Yes, Brother Argent," of the High Captain.

I, Brother Argent, embark on the 12 Months of Hobby Challenge, and for the month of January pledge to complete 1x Armoured Munitorum Container and accompanying bits as well as three Primaris Intercessors to the defence of the Imperial Faction/(or possibly the Xenos - depends on numbers by months end if Grot allows it) by month's end.
