Very nice work, Carrack. :tu: Very nice indeed. Makes me think the progenid organs of the Black Maw take a little something from those they're removed from...


And the deadline has been extended to the 11th of September. :)

I think the problem with this topic (personally) is that either people dont really think about the geenseed after the their chapter goes chaos (you would mostly assume it would stay the same?) but also I dont know... it feels like a topic generally hard to write about. Which by the way means I applaud the current entrants for their strength of will and fortitude. Anyway just my two cents.

Also, for anyone whose warband isn't defined by a specific unique geneseed mutation or isn't a recently turned chapter, it is likely that they have a wide variety of geneseed sources found within them.
My Lord Escharron for instance makes a point of not caring where you came from if you will serve faithfully, even extending such an offer to xenos and other non astartes stock if the situation arrives. (although rarely will they ever achieve much trust)

In us burns a fire for vengeance that will only be quenched when we stand triumphant over the smoldering ruins of Terra. Our laughter on that day will haunt their survivors till the end of time. We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

Rebirth
Darkness all around that was all that could be seen with the exception of the lumigen green lights on the floor. The gene slaves walked along tired and weak wanting so badly to die but knowing that one of their masters would return them to life. When they reached the large gate at the end of the corridor their master Alkov pressed his hand against the most decrepit symbol on the gate causing the gateway to begin to open.

As they crossed through the gateway they could see outside the ground a sludgy mud mixed with bile it looked like they were treading through a sea of bile Alkov often wondered how it did not sink. "Your late Alkov" said a mysterious figure his armour a dark green turned this way from Corruption part of his armour Rusted to the core liquid rot leaking from the mechatendrils on his back. "I'm s-s-sorry my lord the slaves won't pick up the pace m-m-my lord" stuttered Alkov. "Maybe I need to speak to the chief apothecary then have your slaves given some vigor" said the mysterious figure. "Come now though for we have more geneseed and it requires storing". "M-m-my lord I mean no disrespect when I say this but you are normally in the forges so what are you doing here" said Alkov clearly sure his question would get him killed. The Warp smith raised his axe as if he was about to swing it at Alkov but then he lowered it again "my reason for being here is simple the Chief Apothecary is busy beginning new recruits on their process to becoming warriors of the Blight Angels now no more questions unless you would of course like to become a servitor" said the Warp smith with a mechanical matter of fact.

As they proceeded to the vaults where the geneseed was kept it was alot more unclean. To Alkov it seemed like disease contagion and decay came into the room freely. As they entered the vaults it was clear to see all of the geneseed stored in the room many was of the Blight Angels original geneseed but some had been stolen back since the day they turned and others had been stolen from their Primogenator the Iron Hands and other sons of Ferrus. While most other Iron Hands successors had a depositon for bionics and augmentation even during their loyalist days the Blight Angels didn't. Unusually they instead chose to test their endurance

Indeed, it's not something most people think about, nor is it something easy to write about, which is why I chose the subject. To get people thinking about it and to challenge them. Inspire them.

Also, for anyone whose warband isn't defined by a specific unique geneseed mutation or isn't a recently turned chapter, it is likely that they have a wide variety of geneseed sources found within them.


Yes, I'm sure many warbands use geneseed from different sources. Hence it would be interesting to hear how they handle this, any problems it poses for the apothecaries, cases of rejection, mutation, etc.

So it went a bit outside of the scope of this, but I hope it gets the idea across in addition to some of the other things I was saying.

This week’s topic wasn’t the easiest, and asked you to think about what makes your marines tick. Biologically speaking. I thank those who entered for their work.

We had Teetengee with Mab and the Harvesters: non-Astartes who scavenge and salvage what they can from the battlefield, be it materiel or meat. I loved the description of one machine essentially eating a near-dead marine, spitting the unneeded gore out its rear.

Thedarkprincesnun told us of Rebirth: Alkov and his geneslaves working for the Blight Angels.

Carrack gave us a wonderful piece: Returned, gene-thralls returning recovered progenid glands to the Black Maw’s eerie storage alcoves.

It was very difficult to choose a winner this week but...

...step forth Warsmith Aznable and claim your reward!

gallery_63428_7083_6894.png

You gave us a tale of an apothecary investigating a fallen enemy and stealing their geneseed. The apothecary’s cataloging of the enemy’s wounds and subsequent dissection was very good. I particularly liked the apothecary talking to himself as he performed his duty.

 

And here begins the next challenge...

 

Actually, no it doesn’t.

That will be given by Carrack, as I will be too busy to run IF for the next few weeks (I hope I can squeeze enough time to take part though!). I’ll be back from the 2nd of October.

Congratulations to Warsmith Aznable for yet another well deserved victory. For this week's challenge I present-

Tales of Chaos Glory!

We have all had moments on the tabletop where one model has performed in a fashion most pleasing to the Dark Gods. Wether it be a cultist champ who wins a challenge against a loyalist Astartes Character, a rhino tank shocking a unit off the table edge, a snap shot bolt round taking the last wound off that chapter master with artificer armor, or any other incident where your model did the impossible.

Write a brief story of what occurred that the gods showed their favor upon. Was it the final moment before his ascension? Did the deed go down in the warband's history, or was it forgotten moments later? Was the hero rewarded, or quietly eliminated as a threat to the ruler's power? Did the gods continue to bless the hero of the day, if so how, or did their fickle nature turn their attentions to another?

I claim that reward!

 

You gave us a tale of an apothecary investigating a fallen enemy and stealing their geneseed. The apothecary’s cataloging of the enemy’s wounds and subsequent dissection was very good. I particularly liked the apothecary talking to himself as he performed his duty.

 

This was a challenging task, because I wanted to write it as a narrative and not factually talk about what the warband does. Narrative-wise I'm not sure I got in everything I wanted to, particularly the motivation.

 

The 49th Grand Company does not just steal any old geneseed. They consider that they are honouring worthy enemies by adopting their geneseed into the warband. The apothecary assigned to collect enemy geneseed is also evaluating the context of that enemy's death. An ignominious or simply unremarkable death, in the apothecary's opinion, will cause that apothecary to leave the geneseed in place and move on. If he decides to collect the geneseed he collects evidence to build a case for his opinion.

 

The advisors, a position roughly analogous to chaplains, review all combat footage and conduct after action reviews (AAR) with the squads they are assigned to. The special advisor who oversees enemy geneseed matches those reports of an enemy's pre-death behavior with the apothecary's post-mortem evaluation. If the advisor decides that all the evidence matches then he sends his approval to the apothecarion, and the geneseed is entered into the warband's stores and the name of that enemy is remembered in various ways. If the advisor decides that any part of the case is not satisfactory then the geneseed is unceremoniously binned.

 

It's not traditionally grimdark, I admit. Having been in the military I cannot help but want to incorporate the drudgery, routine, and absurdity of soldiering that never makes it into war movies. Of course I want that to be interesting, too, so I covet the approval of these Chaos icons like a strung out junkie... msn-wink.gif

Ok so I'm going to write this in story format.
The sorceror nikol stood there surrounded by Plague marines he drew upon the power of the swarm to imbue him with great strength speed and resilience. Running at the space wolves he laughed off their feeble bolt fire. As the plague Champion called out a wolf guard sergant. As the plague Champion and the wolf guard began to due the sorceror jumped over the first space marine wolf raising his fell blade and shoved it into the Grey hunters chest slaying him within seconds and then continuing to cut the wolves down.

All of a sudden another grey hunters pack joined the melee he continued to back down the space wolves he called upon the power of the warp again but this time it felt dangerous. As the power began to over flow him he channeled it into himself boosting him to heights unattainable previously killing the list of the wolves. Nearby he saw some wolf guard bikers cutting down a obliterator. Sensing the obliterators death in the warp he ran forward and slaughtered the wolf guard giving no quarter to them but at this point he lost control of the power he was channeling. Groaning in agony he refused to allow the pain to over cone him and issued a challenge to the wolf guard battle leader commanding the space wolves.

As they charged at each other Nikol jumped up and landed on the back of the battle guard leaders bike. As the battle guard leader turned around to defend himself nikol kicked him in the face causing blood to spurt from the battle leader he raised his bolt pistol to the space wolves faced and shot 5 rounds Into him blowing the battle leaders face off completely. For the sacrifice he felt the warps energy flowing through his body healing him re knitting his wounds back together. As he jumped off the bike he drew upon the energies of the warp and began to chant a necromantic spell healing those plague marines who were wounded and returning those who were dead back to life as the Blight Angels who had died were resurrected he drew upon the same necromantic energy again and this time turned his attention towards the space wolves. He began a complex ritual to return them to life binding their souls to their body and forcing them to serve him

anyone mind if I write it about a game my friends played when I was first teaching them to play rather than one of my own games?
a tzeentch sorc took out the avatar of khaine in close combat and then ascended to daemonhood, so I figured I can't really top that.

No problem Teetengee.

Also, for those who don't play very often, have had a long string of bad rolls, have drowned the memories of all recent games in 90+ proof, or any other reason, feel free to invent your own story of glory, or borrow another's. This contest is on the quality of writing, not what actually happened on the tabletop. I just find a good game (either played or witnessed) provides ample inspiration for writing, and wanted to see what the illustrious frater here created.

Cato Sicarius surveyed the battlefield, a puzzled expression upon his face. Arrayed against him were the forces of the Impure, but something didnt seem right. Even though the opposing force that was arrayed against him certainly looked sinister, it didnt seem to have what his scouts had assured him were their. Both he daemon engines he had been warned so strongly about, and the Warbands leader seemed to be missing. It troubled him, but the Ultramarine 2nd company captain had no more time for such troubles. "We March for Macragge" Sicarius yelled. "And we shall NO KNOW FEAR" His assembled strike force returned. They advanced slowly keeping to cover where possible, and making sure to stay out of range of the Archenemies weapons. Even so the hellbrute that stood so defiantly on a rock overlooking the battle managed to kill 2 battle brothers in one of his tactical squads. The twin-linked Autocannon on its arm shredding the two marines armour and flesh. Undeterred the strike force continued forwards. Cato called the order to his devastators and they took aim at the hellbrute. The beast suffered a multitude of hits but shrugged most of them off. 1 shot got through and blew its Reaper Autocannon off. The hellbrute looked confused and then, to everyone horror, regrew the arm. Deciding enough was enough Cato order his two dreadnoughts out of reserve. The ironclad and venerable dreadnuaghts landed and again aimed at the roaring hellbrute. This time the fiend vanished in a cloud of toxic miasma and flames.

 

The Ultramarines celebrated and charged up the ridge the hellbrute had been guarding. At the top they began trading fire with the traitor forces milling around. A squad of deathguard chortled wetly, as bullets sunk into their clammy and bloated flesh without leaving so much as a scratch. The tactical squad that was missing two brothers was wiped out under the combined fire of the Deathguard and a cadre of Thousand Sons. In retaliation Sicarius ordered his snipers to target the sorcerer leading the Rubricae. The first two shots hit the ground before going anywhere near the sorcerer, stopped completely by his Kine shield. He began to laugh, but stopped as a bullet hit him in the shoulder. He quickly ran to cover, but as his concentration wavered the rubricae slowed down their shooting and then stopped, The sorcerer regained his concentration but not quickly enough to stop the devastator squad from pulping them into brittle dust with two direct Frag missiles.  

 

It was at this point that Pestilentae made his presence known. Appearing from deepstrike wreathed in a cloud of plague flies, and protected by his guards, the Niterai. They proceeded to cut down the devastator squad. In retaliation the two dreadnuaghts opened fire on the group and killed all but pestilentae himself. The clouds of flies moving to absorb any incoming fire. It was at this point that Sicarius' fears were realised. With an unholy roar a Forgefiend appeared from the mists that had been cloaking the edges of the battlefield. It spewed unholy ectopasma onto the Ironclad which disintegrated into a pool of molten slag. Cato heard a nearby roar. Barrelling towards him faster than he could quite comprehend was the dread warlord of the Impure. Cato realised that the sorcerer was somehow boosting the Terminator Lord's movement speed. The sniper scouts saw the sorcerer and again levelled a volley at him. All five shots pierced the Sorceress body, making him fly backwards by a few feet from the heavy calibre rifles. Pestilentae slowed down but bellowed a challenge. The company champion who served in Cato's honour guard replied with a challenge of his own. The noble champion charged forwards, before being cut in half by the giant scythe Pesitlentae, like his master Typhus, relished wielding. As the champion fell to the ground with two wet thunks, Pestilentae's scythe, Corpse Reaper, glowed and grew larger, a crackling aura surrounding it.

 

Cato Sighed and drew his sword. He would not let the rest of his honour guard die, for surely none could match the Chaos Lord in combat. "Feel the wrath of Guilliman" Sicarius roared before charging at Pestilentae. The charge caught the terminator lord of balance and like the skilled swordsman he was Cato capitalised on the moment slashing rapidly before stabbing forwards at the traitor and landing a telling blow that would have felled an Ultramarine Terminator. Pestilantae grimaced and then began laugh. He started his own attack, a blistering combination of overhead and sideways sweeps with his scythe, even using the blunt end to try and concuss the captain. Two hits landed and cut into his flesh through the armour. Both areas became cold and numb, and Cato looked in worry at how discoloured they became after such a short time. He barely had time to register this as Pestilentae was once again on the offensive. The Lord jumped into the air and brought down his weapon with all his might, hitting nothing but air as Sicarius rolled to the side. As Sicarius was about to strike he again heard the Chaos lord laugh, in confusion he looked down and saw a line of red across his entire stomach. He could no longer feel his arms or his legs. He fell to his knees and struggled to rise. The last thing he saw was the Anthraxis Kiss, an ornate yet filthy master crafted combi bolter being pinted at his head. Then he saw no more. 

 

-Edit

I feel like this is both too long, and too short. GOD DAMMIT TZEENTCH JUST COZ I DIDN'T WRITE ABOUT YOU!

  • Faction: Iron Warriors; Traitor Guard

This is based on a campaign me and my brother played a while back, the Austik Vien Relic campaign. In the last battle we played (the campaign has been on hold since as we've both been busy with work), my traitor guard, the Nihilists, were allied with a small detachment of Siege Makers, led by Robersium the Pyromancer to face his Necrons. The following entry is based upon that battle. 

 

Robersium felt the Warp course through his veins, but this time it came only from his flanks. Arrayed before the forces of Chaos were the ancient Necrons, who seemed to be able to dampen the Warp around them. Or at least this was as it seemed to the Sorceror. Whizzing shots of lasfire headed in the machines' direction, a few scoring fatal shots but many got back up, emerald energy lighting up their chests as they stood back up. The battle for this level had only just truly begun, with the Leman Russ BattleTank, the Spoils of Victory, rumbling to Robersium's right. In his ear, the vox-channel came on.

+The Dorn Breaker reporting, my liege,+ came the crisp sound over the din of the battle. +We shall be joining you soon. ETA three minutes.+

"Acknowledged," replied the Pyromancer. "We await your inclusion and we shall show who truly owns this battlefield. Out." As Robersium looked to the Battle Tank again, he could make out Skrinen and his Chosen squad taking up position in an old tower, reduced to ruin from Gauss fire. At ground level, a squad of Nihilist veterans, known as Darmen's Reavers, began to use their superior weapons (at least in comparision to the majority of the Nihilists) to shoot the advancing Necrons. 

"We need to get moving," said Vornt, Champion of the Iron Death squad. "Scanners show Necron forces are gaining ground rapidly..." The Battle Cannon on the Spoils drowned all noise in the immediate vicinity as it fired, along with the bark of Bother Brosius's Heavy Bolter from the tower. At the same time, The Dorn Breaker trundled in from behind, it's ancient scarred hull a sight of awe to the Traitor Marines. 

"Agreed," replied the Sorceror. He clicked the comm-rune in his ear, opening up a channel to the various squad Champions on the field. "I want a clean order of battle. Target priority goes to the more elaborate looking ones or any that hold a staff or orb. If any have a robe of any description, abolutely all firepower must be directed at them. Am I understood?" A series of yeses came back, just as the Iron Dragon, General Kryten, joined Robersium. "Let us march to victory."

Barely two minutes had passed before the first Siege Maker casualties were reported. Soren and his Raptors had broken from the battle line and charged into combat with a squad of Warriors. Yelling blessings to the Blood God, he had then cleaved the Lord in two as the rest of the squad cut the survivors down as they attempted to retreat. But this victory was short lived, as the squad came under fire from the most decorated of Necrons on the field. 

+Retreating to fall back zone my liege,+ reported Soren. +Casualties at seventy percent. We have dispatched the centre most Necrons.+ Frustration came over Robersium, but he was no fool. 

"Acknowledged." To Robersium's left, mortal followers of the Blood God broke from cover, having been ordered to by Kryten, and fired a well disciplined series of shots into the nearby squad of Warriors. The ones immediately to the front went down, their metallic bodies pierced and scorched from the concentration of fire. Robersium and the Iron Death squad picked up their pace, rounding the corner of a large chapel. Immediately they opened fire upon the same Warrior squad as the Khorne worshipping mortals. Bolter rounds tore into their hides, severing limbs and spinal columns. The Sorceror drew in what power he could and released an inferno within one of them, melting the ancient being into slag. 

"CHARGE!" bellowed Vornt, the Iron Warriors under his command sprinting to engage their target. Using Warp spawned fire to pave the way, Robersium charged his Force Sword, channeling unnatural heat into the blade. He slashed the head from the Orb wielding Lord, whose body fell to the ground motionless. It appeared to just fade from existence however, and the squad it had led soon faded too. The group of Iron Warriors quickly reformed, but another surprise was soon to be theirs. 

The cybernetic Sentinel Kenial, who had been marking targets from afar as the left flank had advanced, exploded as a powerful blast hit him. His legs were blown from underneath him, while some unknown power opened the ground up beneath him and crushed him as he fell. The shooter, the most decorated and robed machine in the area, had been identified as the Overlord, and those around him were classed as his Royal Court of Crypteks. They then turned their attention to the Iron Warriors, but the Khorne Infantry squad retaliated first. Bursts from their lasguns hit home, but none scored a hit due to unseen shields. This proved fatal as the response virtually wiped the squad from existence, the Royal Court combining fire with rapidly moving Tomb Blades. 

Robersium was becoming more enraged. At least the Blood God worshippers had brought the Iron Death time, which the Sorceror immediately capitalised on. Swinging his sword in a downward arc, the blade made contact and the sheer heat from it cleaved straight through. However, the self repair mechanisms in the Overlord repaired it immediately. Knowing their time wasn't now, and as more of the Royal Court was cut down, the remainder of the machines fell back. 

Panting heavily, the Pyromancer saw that Vornt was unconscious. Taking stock of the situation, he ordered the Iron Warriors to regroup on him. He took satisfaction as he saw Brosius's Heavy Bolter sever the Overlord's head with a shell from the ancient weapon. All around the field he saw the Nihilists were slowly gaining the upperhand, but not without heavy casualties. The Spoils of Victory fired at the darting Tomb Blades, and managed to destroy them along with a volley from some vengeance fuelled Nurgle mortal followers. Reports of the Blessed Brethren's demise were confirmed, so much for being the most favoured among the Nihilists. But Robersium began to feel a chill, despite his powers. Then he realised what was about to happen. 

He turned just in time to protect himself with an outward fiery blast as the rest of the Iron Death were blown back. A C'tan Shard, clearly from the ancient Nightbringer, had entered, and was attempting to turn the tide of battle. A Canoptek Spyder was at it's side, and had a prism beneath that sucked the powers of the Warp from those around it. Knowing he was the only being able to do something, the traitorous Crusader of Guilliman charged. A swing from a massive scythe cracked into his side, buckling his armour. Another swing hefted him off his feet but he didn't break his stride. He managed to reach the beast and drove his sword into the epidermis. Concentrating his Warp based powers, he channeled his powers and saw the ancient body begin to crack. The creature let out a scream as it's body exploded, knocking Robersium back and also damaging the Spyder. 

Dragging himself up, the Sorceror saw the prism was broken, and he felt his powers reach peak levels. But he also felt drained. Activating his sword one last time, he severed the head from the ancient machine. Slumping to the ground, he heard Skrinen over the vox-channel. 

+The field is ours, brother. No Necrons are in sight. Victory is ours.+

In us burns a fire for vengeance that will only be quenched when we stand triumphant over the smoldering ruins of Terra. Our laughter on that day will haunt their survivors till the end of time. We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

Glory, Glory, gore soaked Glory! I was impressed with the tales of glory related by the participants this week. Such tales will undoubtedly be carved into the stones of the Imperial Palace on Terra in the not so distant future.

We had Darkprincesnun's sorcerer fight his way through the Emperor's dogs to slay a Wolf Guard Battle Leader. EesiOh told the tale of a true champion of the gods smiting down the mighty Cato Sicarius. The mighty Iron Warrior Sorcerer Roberium truely had the favor of the gods, no matter if he cared or not for such favor, when he cut his way through a army of Necrons to, once and for all, slay a shard of C'tan. Then there was the mighty sorcerer Osiri, who gained the greatest of rewards for killing the avatar of the xenos Eldar's god. Lastly, we had the story of Braggar and his defeat of the loyalist dreadnought, at great cost, yet greatly rewarded as well. But there can be only one winner.

All the entries this week were good, I am getting a glimpse of the difficulty of judging this contest. As I mentioned, all the entries were good, but three stand out to me as being exceptional. The sheer magnitude of Beachymike123's, account was truly heroic, those are the moments of a battle that live on for ever in our memories. Teetengee's story was remarkable in its description of a lord's ascension into a prince of daemons. But in spite of the tough competition, Warsmith Aznable yet again won the competition. I found his use of flashbacks in telling his tale superbly done, which if not well done, leave the reader confused. I also found the character of Braggar very believable, not always an easy task with Chaos Astartes. Step forth Warsmith Aznable and claim another prize.

Now on to the next Inspirational Friday challenge. Deadline is Friday 25 October. Let us see if we can stop the mighty Warsmith Aznable's string of victories.

A stolen relic.

A chaos space marine is not above a little thievery, but some items may have more significance than a few boltgun magazines taken off a still cooling body of a Corpse God's lackey. Take for instance, Talos's Blood Angel power sword. The Blood Angels knew it was theirs and wanted it back.

What relic has your Warband or Legion stolen? Who did they lift it from, and what were the circumstances around this larceny. Do they know the significance of what they possess and flaunt it to their enemies, or is it merely collecting dust in some treasure chest along with more mundane booty. Has the rightful owners made attempts to retrieve it? What was the impact of its loss to its owners?

I feel that if you had not been judging the competition, Carrack, that you should have won it for your short about the Rhino.

 

But as that is not the case, I gladly claim this prize! msn-wink.gif

Well done Warsmith Aznable. The way the flashbacks were played out worked well, and I think added to a warrior recounting his tale. Great work all round though, I certainly had a blast reading through them.
Now to start thinking what items my guys have for the next IF topic.
Just out of curiosity Carrack, is it just one relic or can we have multiple? Obviously not a cave's worth, but say 2 or 3?

I apologize for the lack of the medal, I have been trying to figure it out for a while now and as soon as I do I will edit the post. I think we might have to wait for Kierdale's return to running IF next month. Sorry. I liked my story this week, I feel that I have a hit or miss record when it comes to writing, but I try to make up for my lack of accuracy with a greater volume of fire :) That being said, I think if I included my own entry I still would have lost to you. Thanks for the compliment.

Sure thing Beachymike123, steal as much as you can carry from the deluded loyalists, erstwhile allies, or filthy xenos.

Ok here's my entry
The Crimson Blade
"The blade it drives the bearer insane it craves blood it craves sacrifice for the blood god".
The Crimson Blade is a relic of unknown origin all it is known is that at some point during the Great Crusade the Primarch Sanguinius found this weapon. Originally it was not cursed however after the primarchs destruction at the hands of Horus it is said a blood thirsty spirit awoke within the sword.

With the After math of the Heresy and the breaking down of the Legions into chapters there was much discussion among the blood angels who would get the blade. After many months of discussion a agreement was reached. Every 5 years the blade would be gifted to a successor until it made its way back to the chapter for this way all sons of Sanguinius would get to receive the blades holy blessings.

This would continue until M:38.48 when the Blood Angels successor chapter the Wings of Sacrifice was to find their home world trapped within a warpstorm. Upon landing on the world the found their fortress monastery and the cities surrounding it under siege. As the Wings of Sacrifice prepared a staunch counter attack. Communicating with the Chapter Master back in the monastery it was decided between the 2 of them that Gabriel and his marines would go to help free the cities while the chapter master and the 3 remaining companies would attempt to push the forces of Chaos back and prevent them from taking the Crimson Blade.

This however proved to be their downfall as with their forces being split up the chaos forces were easily able to overwhelm them with hordes of cultists and summoned daemons. As the forces of Chaos made it to the Crimson Blades chamber the Chapter Master and his honour guard prepared to defend the blade with their last breath. This would later become a fatal mistake due to the sorceror lord Azhar Balelord had planned to sacrifice the chapter master and his body guard to unleash the power of the crimson blade.

At first it seemed the chapter master and his sanguinary guard held the advantage but as the battle continued on the Sorcerors foul sorcery overwhelmed the descendants of Sanguinius. As he took the Crimson Blade he used it to slay the Chapter Master followed by the few body guards he left alive.

Upon doing this he left the world having achieved his objectives. Since this day however the Blood Angels and their successors have hunted down this ancient relic. Rather unfortunately for the Sons of Sanguinius the relic has changed hands within the great eye so many times. No one knows for sure who wields it.
