The screams filled the night, . There were no alarms, no warnings for what befell us. The still night had erupted in terror, and there was nothing and no one that could save us.

I had been wounded in the initial strike, the burning toxins ravaging my body. As I lay there in the darkness being consumed from the inside, only the screams were able to break through my delirium.
  
Soon my body had broken, the screams that were my own subsided.  I felt warm, the cool breeze of the open air on my face. At last I had found the respite of my own death, and I deftly welcomed it. 

Intent and welcoming, I open my eyes to see the lithe armored warrior that had claimed my life. I am without feeling, and he can sense my relief. 

While his face is covered by a helm that hides his features, I see the gleam in his eyes, the hunger. The pistol is already in his hand as he lowers his face to mine. The world erupts with ear piercing screams, new toxins anchoring me to this world, to begin my torment anew. The screams fill the night, and they are mine. 


I am out sick this morning. I will be back in the afternoon.

  5. Considering how much time and effort you put into this blog I think we can allow you a little sick leave once every few millennium. What you say you Papa Nurgle? He says yes but don't get better soon.

    3. I apologise then ^^ Just thought I had read something similar once, even using the term Teufelsnacht and all...

    4. the term devilnacht was used in a fluff story in the 3rd edition dark eldar codex. however the story itself here, while perhaps inspired by that, and my sickness, is new.

      so no need to apologize.

    6. the dark eldar took the survivors of the squat race, handed them over to the Haemonculi, who drugged them up with all sorts of hormones.

      This is how we have those small grotesques from 3rd edition. (so yes, the squat Grotesque is in the next codex).

    7. No no no. It's not squatsunami I think the next few codexs are as follows....

      Khorne decides he's had enough of that tzeench bastard so brings out a new Codex full of new goodies to stomp tzeench. Tzeench counters with a new codex of his own. Nurgle gets jealous an puts forward his new codex and slannesh, being the prince of excess and doesn't need any more excuse, rolls one out as well. This results in an acid - alkali reaction and they all cancel each other out resulting in a compete removal of evil from the galaxy.

      Next codex dark eldar decide that if there's no more evil they might as well be good and just go back to being normal eldar as they seem to live just as long anyway. The elder then decide that if there going to manipulate anyone it might as well be each other. At least that way they dontbhave to deal with lesser races so every ones a winner.

      After that nids figure out that the works are basically unlimited bio-mass and just troll on them. This suits the orks just fine as they get an ongoing and guaranteed fight. Both races find a quiet section of the galaxy to continue there new found war of attrition.

      The codex after that the necrons decide that it's not just blood angels that are 'all right' and now occasionally invite other chapters round for tea as well. The ensuing contests and friendly rivalries satisfy the marines need to show off and keep the necrons entertained enough not to wipe out the rest of the galaxy.

      The Tau's invites to 'bonfire night (bring a bottle)' actually start to get positive responses too. This results in most of the races actually getting on, with only one or two races occasionally gettin too drunk and shouting the occasional insult at each other. For the most part the Tau sit there and look self satisfied that there social gatherings attract more people than most events, there for there's musty be better; QED.

      The sisters, now there's no one left to shoot at, are content to sit around and pray along with the grey knights who, it transpires, are actually quite nice when there not trolling everyone else.

      The guard are just happy there not being used for target practice by everyone else.

      As such, after a few codex releases, GW great universal peace in just 7 easy steps and find that they don't need to produce any more War mixtures. This is a happy coincidence as they were on the verge of pricing themselves put of the market anyway. Peacehammer 41 and 1/2 k becomes the new flagship game for GW and consists, for the most part, of people just not stressing. Universal peace follows. End.

      That's my theory anyway....just not sure if I'm 100% on the mark though.....!!

    9. The Chaos Marine Marine codex is due for release in the bitter winter of 2143, and Tau will be combined with Bretonnians for a WD pseudo-codex (White Dwarf Presents...). Squats, Hrud and a pure Jokaero army are all up, interspersed with 183 variant Marine Codexes including Codex Mantis Warriors, Codex Howling Griffons and Codex Emperor's Bastards. There will be 17 battle reports dedicated to a grudge between the Chaos Dwarfs and the Lost and the Damned as they duke it out to decide whose reintroduction was more cautiously undertaken (FW army vs being cultists in the CSM book). Furthermore, there will be 92 Vampire Counts books before Wood Elves.

      ... and Codex Zoats.
