It is The 41 millennium. For more than a hundred centuries the Emperor has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the master of mankind by the will of the gods, and master of a million worlds by the might of his inexhaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology. He is the Carrion Lord of the Imperium for whom a thousand souls are sacrificed every day, so that he may never truly die.
Yet even in his deathless state, the Emperor continues his eternal vigilance. Mighty battle fleets cross the daemon-infested miasma of the warp, the only route between distant stars, their way lit by the Astronomican, the manifestation of the Emperors will. Vast armies give battle in his name on uncounted worlds. Greatest among them are the Adeptus Astartes, the Space Marines, bio-engineere

They would be arriving at the rendezvous point with the Moshathra soon and she wanted to make some final preparations before they arrived. Her eyes closed, she focused her mind to become one with Cetanu. She had disabled everything that could possibly disrupt her while she worked.

Though, I just need you
To chase all the ghosts I fear
I have to go through
This ordeal of dreams
Joy's not what it seems!
My life's a taste of Hell
But Heaven's all around
Why, Oh why, Samael
Did you waken my soul?
Unseen by the ones I love
I've got so much time
To think and to stroke the dove
Could this dream be mine?
Meadows are at reach
When Hell we beseech
My life's a taste of Hell
But Heaven's all around
Why, Oh why, Samael
Did you waken my soul?
Being the loving one
Means being all alone
Caring for everyone
Now who cares for your soul?
Incinerate our Hell
Build Heaven together
Break our protective shell
We will be even greater!

1. In a 1500 point game, pull out a 2000 point army and claim its only 1500.
2. Put a name tag on every single one of your troops, as you move say (ex: "Ok Bob. Move here and kill him")
3. Put Sisters of Battle heads on some of your units and put them off to the side. Claim that they're cheerleaders.

6. Halfway through the game claim your miniatures are tired and need a rest.
7. Field a teddy bear and claim its stats are all 10 (except save, which is 1)

Where poison and mud are melting. Foolish miser!
Rewarding ignorance, arising cowardice,

To the gods. I am not longing to roll your dice
Anymore. Weakness and fear, fetters and noose die!

My fate will note be bound to one simple orphan.
For to embrace the world in its whole purity,
Your heart has to be true and your eyes to peer through
The mists of human kind. Do not be mislead, though :
I love you more than your love now, I'm truly free!

and all through the barracks
not a creature was stirring not even the ferrets.
The servitor stalked through the hallways with care
as though in fear they may be mauled by a bear.
The Space Marines all tucked in tight in their bunks,
dreaming of blowing the 'nids into chunks.
When all of a sudden there arose a great clatter,
I called an Inquisitor to look into the matter.
I ran to the hanger, Laspistol in hand,
and saw a red Thunderhawk with a single white band.
From it there walked a man clad in red,
no sign of a helmet atop his great bearded head.
He carried a sack filled with hundreds of boxes,
and for a moment my fear fell upon poxes,
but then he laughed, in a great 'belly-laugh',
knocking me down, out of reach of my staff.
And then in a time no more than a heartbeat,
he drew out a present and laid it at my feet.
He made his way past the security beams,
giving presents to soldiers who were deep in their dreams.

She hurried over to the edge of the roof, and peered over the tall railing. Guardsmen were firing further down the street. Several were simply running.
There was a sound, like a thunderous roar, and a moment later a portion of the street exploded as an enormous bolt round crashed into it, blasting apart a lowly soldier as well.

Guardian of the Heart:part 1Snow gently drifted through the sky, it was almost like it was dancing a beautiful waltz with the wind. They danced in such a perfect harmony, a dance of true love between two different elements. It always felt like a dream when I watched the snow fall to the ground. Wind and snow were truly meant to be together as such beauty could never be a mistake. I always envied those two elements as they managed to find their perfect match where as I never could.Guardian of the Heart:part 15 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
'Hey dyke! It's time to get up and go to school!' my step dad yelled at me. He always called me things like that; ever since I opened up about my sexuality he never used my name but rather called me things like 'dyke' and 'lezzy'. He had always been homophobic, he was the reason I denied myself the truth for so long. I only managed to get the courage to come out of the closet because of my mother; she was just so open minded and knew how to keep my step dad in check.

A recent rain left the city feeling even more damp and mildewed than usual. Puddles gathered
on the decaying sidewalks and in the potholes of the street. The wet ground reflected the light of the
overhead electric signs with hazy and dull splotches of color. What few cars were on the street at this
hour drove slowly to avoid the dilapidated sections of the road.
Hopey backed into the door to the 24-hour market and pushed it open with her hips, knocking
the bell on the lintel. As she stepped onto the street, she pulled in a deep breath of muggy air. The
humidity was tangible even through her fur. She adjusted the bag of groceries in her grasp and headed
back to her apartment, glancing sideways at a couple low-born humans lurking outside the market.
They had enough metal on their faces to almost be considered augmented high-born. Hopey made a
show of checking the time on her glove computer as she passed by to avoid

"Only a fool angers a predatory beast."
- Old Imperial adage
The Commissar could feel herself fading in and out of consciousness. The world which surrounded her seemed completely distant, and all sound was deafened by her own infinitely loud heartbeat, and heaving sobs whose feminine source she did not see.
She was certain she had received a major concussion and was bleeding, but she felt no pain in fact, she felt nothing.
Her own unreliable sense of sight told her she was on her hands and knees. She made an effort to stand, which failed quickly as her legs refused to work properly; she guessed they were shattered.
She looked about. Her blurred gaze told her the clouds in the sky had turned red in the fury of war. Around her, corpses laid, drained of blood by horrific injuries.
In spite of the near-uselessness of her eyes, she could identify quite clearly the remains of Major Lockwood, pallid, blankly staring. Heaped over her was another

It slowed on the approach to Port Seelen, allowing for the servitors to pass handshake codes to the port security. It came to a halt over its designated pad, deploying its legs as it lowered down. With a bump, it landed. The passenger bay slid down out of the jet black hull, pressurized air hissing as it was vented. A full detachment of Inquisitorial storm troopers, as well as the ports chief of security, had gathered to greet the passengers. As the bay door rose, they folded their hands to their chests in the symbol of the Imperial Aquila.

FATE'S BROKEN STRANDS
"The best advice I can give you is simple. Do not fall in love."
- Sergeant Skinar, Catachan 254th.
Carrying a pair of crates loaded with parts, Mik Branz stepped into the hangar - Yaroslava and Carlyle had converted the space to their purposes, though the Captain's approval of this remained in doubt.
Carlyle was welding together some plasteel scraps; Yaroslava was likely struggling with the same mechanisms she had been on that morning.
Evidently, neither of the two had heard him enter. "Yo." He called out once, but quickly realized his soft voice was deafened by Milly's las-torch. "Yo!" He shouted again, even louder... with perhaps a bit too rash a tone, he realized.
A loud crash came from the interior of the tank, followed by a shrill yelp. "Graebanoyae...!" Yaroslava hoarsely shouted, catching her Drookian companion's attention.
After a few seconds of shuffling through cluttered tools, Zoya, covered in old grease, popped up from the tur

The spiked armour of the eldar-kin proved no match for orkoid strength as choppas and klaws brought fourth fountains of crimson into the pre-dawn light, punctuated by small bursts of splinter fire. Watching as mandrakes and warriors were overwhelmed by the brutish creatures, an eldar at the rear of the group broke and fled, pushing his inhuman agility to new heights as he tried to outrun his own apparent fear. The act proved contagious as the rest of the Dark Eldar followed suit, trying to outpace not only the orks behind them but their kin beside them. More than one eldar fell not to the axes of the Orks but to tripping feet and stunning elbows.dark Eldar and Orks story7 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This

Our angels, the indomitable Davids
Who once challenged Goliath,
Leave only shadows of their glory
As their wings burn out;
They flutter to the sea in defeat,
Our reign here soon will end.
The sky bears true witness to our destruction,
We shall soon disappear into the depths.
Our men leave us on their boats,
Floating between the lines of waves
Like the final notes of our requiem.
The flames of war will consume our bodies,
Leaving our ash to scatter upon the crossroads of the seas.
The evacuation is complete.
May those brave souls live long and prosper,
Or die in glory with due honor.
Perhaps we can, on a higher plane,
Sail again united in unbroken peace.
The decks lie barren; our time has passed.
I look up at the moon, and for once, my heart is quiet.

My Lord Magus, as you are aware Project Fire-Wolf has commenced, the primary tests of these new Astartes vehicles have so far exceeded our expectations and we are prepared to officially announce the arrival of these new experimental assets within our force. There is concern though amongst my senior commanders that the primary weapon is not powerful enough, it does not reach the distance required to cause any major impact within the field of battle, and therefore we request that this is rectified should the vehicle see active service.
It is of course hopeful that it will indeed see service within the Adeptus Astartes, though I am sure to begin with it will be with limited numbers. Until the testing of this
