The small flame of a wax candle danced to an eternal rhythm surrounded by darkness.
She alone had endured when uncountable lives had been extiguished because they knew only a small fraction of what she has seen. Blood and pain entwined with the horrors and heresies she has heard of.
And yet she dances unperturbed amidst shadows eternal, like a beacon guiding lost souls into hades.
Rock splinters beside her as a body slams into it, staining her surroundings with crimson.
"REPENT!" says the robed figure in ebony armour.
"CONFESS YOUR ACTIONS AND BE RID OF THE SIN OF OTHERS. WHERE IS THE LOCATION OF THE DAMNATUS OBIECTUM?" yells the figure of hatred and redemption to the frail and mauled body in the stone floor.
Blood pours from the prisioner's mouth and slides through his naked torso where it ebbs and flows through innumerable valleys of scars and wounds.
"I... I am blameless... I am a son of the dracon..." says the weak figure as an impaclable armoured gauntlet breaks his jaw
"YOU ARE A CREATURE OF TREACHERY! A REMINDER OF THE WEAKNESS OF HUMANITY!" screams the figure of death through speakers made of iron and rage.
"REVEAL YOUR SECRETS AND EARN A QUICK DEATH. ANSWER MY QUESTION AND REDEEM YOURSELF" says the giant as he lifts the mortal by the throat
Burned eyes try to find the face of the figure that questions him, though his eyes had left him mere hours ago.
"sss... sleptus... sector... supra... montibus... infernus... may... he... forgive me..." said the husk devoid of passion and longing to live.
"MAY HIM ON EARTH FORGIVE YOUR SOUL" says the giant. Then closes his hand around the neck of the weakling human, severing his head from his body.
The lifeless meat falls to the ground as the imponent figure of the Dark Angel walks into the darkness, away from the sight of the ever dancing flame.
I wanted to make a thread for the new Dark Angels army i'm building for 9th edition.
The main idea of this project is to have a narrative task force led by a Chaplain searching a forgotten object from the horus heresy which contains clues to the chapter's past.
As the main idea of this army is to contain only primaris miniatures, I found that a story of a Primaris task force seeking answers might be quite cool, it might also present nice conflict with the inner circle giving a logical reason to why play against other Dark Angels armies my friends have.
I hope you guys can accompany me in this journey and please post what you think of this short intro i just wrote
