Logan had gathered his company commanders and battle leaders in one of the great halls of Fenris. As always, someone where missing out, on missions in the name of Russ and the Emperor.

A scribe entered the hall, moving silently towards Logan. He bowed and handed over a datasleet. Logan studied the message; he handed it over to Njal and demanded attention! The room fell silent. “Brothers, we have been called to aid our battle brothers of the Ultramarines, Crimson fist and the Black Templars”! A commotion started in the room, insults were uttered and Ragnar started laughing. 

Bjorn took a step forward and again the room fell silent. Njal and Logan looked at each other. Harald, this task is yours. Ragnar drew his breath as if to speak out, but was cut short by Logan. Even though this requires drop pod deployment, we recognize the use of Harald and his wolves as a key element in this mission. “Muster your force and be ready to launch as soon as possible”. 

The old wolf looked back at Logan, he grinned and revealed his canine teeth. “I will make sure that this will be a saga to remember”!

Crimson Fists for Adepticon 2015

4 kommentarer
It started on the plane back from Adepticon 2014. As we settled into our seats for the long trans-Atlantic flight back east we were talking about what had been our favourite events at the con.

We'd taken part in a couple of tournaments, shopped as well as taken a handful of classes. We'd gone sightseeing the days prior to Adepticon kicking off, while our biological clocs were ajusting.

What we all agreed on was our Main Event, though, was the Team Tournament. Lots of cool people! Squaring off against cool, themed and good-looking armies. It was a blast, and we knew we had to do it again.

This time we'd do a couple of things differently, though...
We would take a properly themed force - and we would beware the Kraken! ;)

A few ideas were tossed around, but the choice quickly fell on Space Marine armies. We'd all choose a different Chapter and take thirty to forty models - mainly deployed via Drop Pods.

Over the course of the following year, a lot of list building took place. In-between a lot of sidetracking and procastination, models were bought, buildt and painted.

Now, just two weeks before we kick off again, I can present my Crimson Fists:
I'm taking a Codicier with a squad of Sternguard Veterans. There's also two Tactical squads. All three have Drop Pods. Finally there's a tank-hunting Devastator squad, backed up by a Techmarine with a Thunderfire cannon.

See you in a couple of weeks!
