About Me

Hey there, as you can see this is blog is all about gaming. And that's what I've been doing for pretty much all of my life. Currently I'm completely enveloped in Warhammer 40,000 and I'm breaking into the new Warhammer Fantasy system with the release of the new 8th edition.

Follow me as I build new armies, find newer and better ways to destroy my enemy, learn more about the rules, and just complain about the things that don't go my way :)

The Grey Knights
The Grey Knights
Astronomi-con Dallas 2012


The Blade of Antwyr
The darkness of Chaos is shown, the power of the Emperor emboldens all.

M37
During the mad years of the Occlusiad, a weapon from ages past was discovered beneath an ancient temple by the apostles of the Blind King. The blade quickly corrupted all who came into possession of it. A war broke out amongst the inhabitants of the sector and with only the great might of all eight Brotherhoods of the Grey Knights was it put down.

M40
Three thousand years later the blade once again surfaced. With the Grey Knights on the watch for outbreaks of this terror they were ready to respond to its presence on the moon of Tethys. A small contingent of Purifiers arrived at the location and quickly dispatched its bearer. After many attempts to destroy the blade was met with only failure, it was deemed that the blade would be put into the hands of one who could not be turned, Castellan Crowe.

218.41M
The Blade of Antwyr will have a new bearer…


A Heroic Sacrifice
In the glow of the abyss the sword does pass to another.

On the mountainside of Ar’Beth the purifiers fought a great menace from the depths of Chaos. It was here that the last stand of the Greater Daemon Malif took place. Castellan Crowe and three squads of purifiers spent nearly four months fighting along the side of the imperial guard to stem the tides of daemons poring forth from the portal in the side of the mountain.

Nearly half the world was over run before Crowe and Inquisitor Morteth arrived to take control of the situation. For three months artillery shells and aerial bombings blasted the stench of chaos back into the warp. Slowly the front lines began to shrink back towards the mountain of Ar’Beth where the daemons had first arrived.

Inquisitor Morteth was forced to request reinforcements from Titan after three months of battling evil incarnate there is only one squad left of the original three sent to fight. With only ten brothers left, the final push is made with reinforcements only days a way. But the momentum can not be slowed lest they risk defeat.

Within eyesight of the portal the final battle is fought. Inquisitor Morteth stands side by side with Castellan Crowe. The Greater Daemon Malif breaks free from his host of daemons slicing cleanly through two of the battle brothers with his Battle Axe of Khorne. Morteth moves forward bravely wielding his chain sword. Crowe, knowing the battle to be one-sided pushes Morteth to the side and challenges the daemon himself. Raising the Blade of Antwyr before him, Crowe lunges at the daemon Malif slicing cleanly through his breastplate.

Angered by this attack Malif fights back enraged. Stiking out wildly with no care for his own defense. Crowe looks for his brothers but they are still battling the daemon host and cannot help him in the fight. Again Crowe strikes, narrowly missing his target, and is slowly being pushed back. Malif rears back with his Great Axe, and Crowe seizes his opportunity and strikes at Malif’s heart. The blade slides in cleanly, through breastplate and ribs, narrowly missing his heart.

With the Blade on Antwyr burried deep inside of him, Malif takes hold of Crowe in his great clawed hands and strikes Crowe with his axe. Castellan’s eyes widen in shock as the axe slices into him. As the blood flows out of his wound he calls upon his last reserves and psychic ability and with his last strength stems the blood for mere moments. With his dying strength Castellan Crowe pulled out the blade of Antwyr and cleaves the head off of the greater daemon.

With Malif dead the rest of the host fled through the portal before Inquisitor Morteth and the other purifiers could close it. With Crowe mortally wounded Morteth takes up the fallen Blade of Antwyr with no hesitation. The other purifiers give questioning looks to each other but allow the Inquisition to take possession of the blade, even if it will be only temporary.

The Attack Begins
Newly reinforced the Grey Knights must battle unknown enemies.

Days after the final battle on Ar’Beth mountain two strike squads, a stormraven and brother Mork in dreadknight armour arrive to reinforce the original teams. Saddened by the events that took place, they place Crowe in a hyperbaric chamber in hopes that life can be given back to him.

Back aboard the Strike Cruiser Larious the Grey Knights set there path back to Titan. Along the way they receive a distress call coming from the Garl’and sector from the planet Centura. Upon arriving at Centura the cruiser is ambushed by an unknown force. The ship is badly damaged and the only surface retaliation that can be mustered is by those with the capability to teleport down to the surface…
