We fight the long war, not through vain notions of duty and honour, but through a far purer purpose…
–Ferrous Ironclaw, Warsmith of the Iron Warriors
I’ll keep this announcement short because I’m really excited about this. A while ago my close friend and fellow Chaos star Wallace O’Donnell and myself started a podcast called Warped Wednesdays. It was positively received, but after 10 episodes, we had to put it on hold because we both got really busy and had trouble […]
It’s difficult to stay interested in a hobby when life is pulling you a million different directions. Everyone reading this has been there (or will be there) at some point. I probably shouldn’t say this part out loud, but over the last couple months I found my love for the game waning a bit. There […]
“I want vengeance against a galaxy that hates us. I want Imperial worlds to cower when we draw near. I want the weeping of this Empire’s souls to reach all the way to Holy Terra, and the sound of suffering to choke the corpse-god on his throne of gold.”

Polish your armour and tighten your leather. This Nephilim season is about to get LOUD.
With those three words we declared the Long War. Words that would, in time, rise from our throats as the battle cry of the Black Legion. Words that encapsulated all that we had been, and all that we had become.
WE ARE RETURNED.
