My 40k Tale - Chapter 5Battle Kin
"If only the Convent had a training regime such as this, how many more Sisters could be trained and inducted?" Yuki almost whispered her thought as she, Heiko and Raviel stood looking on the training ground as the class and instructor worked and moved.
"It would be a blessing for sure." Heiko agreed.
Raviel did not speak, his mind at work following the movements of the instructor's body as he performed the kata. Raviel was a warrior and he took to learning all of the Imperium's fighting styles he found or learned of to better his own prowess. The movements for the class were slowed down, the pacing was off for the movements to be effective in close combat. It would need to be sped up almost three times as fast to work effectively against a trooper, maybe four times faster for an astarte.
His eyes followed the moves like that of a predator following it's prey, picking out every single nuance. The sisters were silent once
My 40k Tale - Chapter 4Silesian Quest
The battle for the Crown Top Mountains continued for three weeks as both the chaotic and Emperor's forces traded blows. It was a war of attrition fought equally hard on and by both sides. It wasn't until planet side reserves came to aide the assault that the war began to tip in the Silesian force's favor. Word had reached them that the Imperial Navy had resupplied and met with reinforcements which were now on their way. The Chaos forces in orbit did not budge until the Imperial Navy re-entered real space, they fired on the cities of the world and dropped landing craft down to their outpost base before entering the warp to leave the system, although several of their ships were set ablaze by the Imperial Navy's batteries.
The chaotic ground forces made one last effort to thwart their inevitable destruction by unleashing upon the Emperor's armies foul conjurations of the warp. The Guard slaughtered the still alive heret
My 40k Tale Reboot - Part 3Two Dance
The plan was simple; neutralize hostiles and array their artillery against them. In theory and on paper the plan was simple, however like all wartime plans they were subject to change. Such was their luck.
After having caught up with the head of the column, the Inquisitor and her troop reveiwed their plan one more time before parting ways. She was loathe to admit that she did not trust the success of the two guard units sent out on their own to the southern artillery emplacements at the mouth of the pass. However, Yril and Kevi could see it in her body language and much to her chagrin, she saw them make a bet, a wager on her mission. She was about to hollar a curse at them when the thunder roared and rattle the metal coffin they rode in.
Outside the sky rained on them, not with water but fire. Shells tore through the air, screeching their rise and fall before detonating on the ground in savage explosions of fra
My 40k Tale - Reboot - 1 and 2Intro
"You will stand the line in the Emperor's name!" the commissar bellowed over the artillery and gunfire, "Any dog who runs will greet death and dishonor!" a solid slug hit him in the shoulder and turned him full around to which his response was "Forward men of Hectorum! Fight and die in the Emperor's name!"
In response the Hectorum 17th surged forward from their trench across the kilometer wide deadman's land, some shooting and killing as others shot and died. The Commissar charged after them, his chainsword buzzing loudly at the troopers' heels as his voice became just another noise in the acoustic melee that drenched the battlefield. When they reached the edge of the Treece Town, a city that surrounded the Emperor's Hill, they began a job they were well suited for; urban combat.
Hectorum was a dense Imperial world with huge hives and other sprawling towns dotted by thickets of forest, water and rock. They were one such Imperial world p
My 40k Tale - Chapter 3"First time I saw him I wanted to kill him. There is no reason for anything such as him to breathe. If Kevi or Yril had wagered me, I would have been cleaned out." - Ghenlin on the service induction of Gatrok
Hectorum, Emperor's Hill above Treece House
They had left Jolin with the parked trak in Treece Square as Guard made another patrol through the city. The fighting had moved off towards the west of the island. The village had been bombarded by artillery while Treece had been cleared out by armor and infantry. It was easier to move through Treece House, the building was a silent reminder of their brush with death. They went around the house and on to the brushwood covered path as they began their ascent up the mountain. It seemed the last folk to travel this particular path had come through years ago. The stone borders on the edge of the walk were still visible, worn down and chipped at
My 40k Tale - Chapter 2"Always making wagers. You'd think your job was easy." Ghenlin said from the chair in the ship's lounge.
"Follow orders, shoot things." Kevi replied smiling.
"Doesn't get any easier than that." Yril put two thrones on the table, "Now, how's about that mission wager eh old man?"
"Both of you put down five and I'll think about it." Ghenlin threw back his amasec as more coin hit the table.
Treece Square, inside Treece House
"Though I walk through the darkness, with the Eye upon me I fear not, for thou art with me." Heiko whispered the proverb.
"The path I walk is steeped in adversity and temptation, but you guide my hand." Yuki followed.
"Let those with false promises speak upon deaf ears, for your's is the voice I hear." Sister Superior Adilse finished.
The corridor shook one last violent time before everything fell silent save for loud heavy breathing on the other side of the doors. All of them held their breath as they waited for something to
My 40k Tale - Chapter 1"Was it what you expected?" she asked knowing the answer.
"Not in the slightest." Kilsam replied.
He stood next to Gracel as the giant suit of armor took off it's helmet revealing a buzzed head of hair atop what would in a different situation have been a grim face, a smirking brown eyed Astarte. Ghenlin was nearby trying to stifle his laugh as Teila stood open mouthed at the sight. Both of them realizing they had jumped head first into something much bigger than they had imagined. Heiko and Yuki stood in silence as Gracel turned to face them all. Truly, the Emperor had blessed her with this retinue.
"Ghenlin, are we cleared for landing at the Schola grounds?" she said looking over the slates on her desk.
"Yes mamzel." the reply on the ship vox chirped awash with static.
"Would you be a dear and make contact with the Guard Command and tell them I wish to visit the site as soon as possible after touchdown. And have them
WH40k Inspired 2Brothers in Arms
Caldis stood in the middle of the blood drenched battlefield, his armor still wet with gore. The sand and patches of grass were as one with the red and black pools. The cultists, heretics and traitors lay dead and dying as the rest of the Imperial Strike Force walked over the ravaged landscape, between the pyres of inferno from the wrecks of vehicles billowing smoke high into the green clouds above. He took off his helmet, latching it to his waist with his one remaining grenade and rubbed his scalp.
The whole of the chapters battle elements had descended upon the northern continent of this god-forsaken warp ruined planet. The taint ran so deep that the land itself was blackened. He did not envy the commanders ordeal, leaving only the First, Second, and Tenth companies at home, and bringing everyone else. How proud were those Third Company brothers when they were awarded the few dozen suits of
AndromedaAmongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…

We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co
