"This will not stand!" - Said Castellan Bertram as he punched the mahogany desk pulverizing it. "Our brothers in Dorn's blood will have their revenge, even if we must force the Inquisitor's arm to approve of it!"
The Segmentum command emmisaries stood frozen in their places, completely scared of the templar's furious answer to the news regarding the denial by Inquisitor Van Halen to give their brother chapter the Decapitation rights to eliminate the command structure of the perfidious Eldar in the Elyon sector.
Finally, the leader of the entourage managed to utter a few words trying to explain his master's actions.
"M... My lord... M..Master Van Halen worries are beyond a meager cabal of dying xenos. H.. He thinks the rot in the sector goes beyond that. Th... the raids are just a cover. People have been dissapearing in these planets before the xenos came to plunder. Th.. there's been a rampant cult activity in the last decades and we are afraid one of the planets is on the brink of damnation."
The Castellan stood motionless looking directly at the eyes of the Inquisitor's emmisary for a few moments, then Brother Arnulph came to his ear as he put his hand on Bertram's shoulder.
"We can can help avenge the honour of our brother chapter and eliminate the threats in the sector at the same time, my brother. Send a message to chapter command informing the situation as it unfolds. We are but a small patrol right now but maybe Grand Marshal Helbrecht might help us with this issue and send more troops to aid in our mission."
The Castellan turned his face to see the Chaplain in his eyes and then nodded. "Very well. I shall communicate this to our leaders"
Then turned to the still fearful emmisaries and said "as for your, menials. Go and cower between your masters legs. Tell them the Adeptus Astartes of the Black Templars chapter will come to liberate the Elyon sector and avenge the honour of the sons of Dorn. With or without their approval. And in your way out, tell some serf companion of yours to remove the remains of this desk. It offends me."
Then the Segmentum Command emmisaries scurried away from the Templars Cathedral to their master's ships.
I was looking at the templars forum a couple of weeks ago and saw that there might be a new Knightfall event, and since I've been having huge issues giving some purpose to my primaris miniatures, I decided to join the bandwagon, get the new templars boxset and make a small army of my own.
I've linked them to my narrative of this Elyon sector in which various forces are battling for dominance and in which my poor Imperial Fists have been trashed so hard in my few crusade games.
So that's what this thread is about, my very own templar crusade and the minis i'm collecting for it.
Right now i don't have any pics as i just finished building the emperor's champion, but as soon as i have something more tangible i'll upload something (hopefully my Knightfall entry).
Thanks for reading this and i hope you can accompany me along this way
