The beginning

"High Marshal Helbrecht himself gave me the lead of this Crusade. Our task is to go in front and explore the worlds which report any risen number of the green Xenos. The foul Xenos leader must be found, as Helbrecht swore an oath to pursue and destroy him. Our Strike Cruiser, Dorn's Revenge, is closing in on a system of multiple reports. We kill any Xenos we will find, in the hope to close in on Ghazghkull. He will find his death, for this is The Viridis Crusade."

- Marshal Brunner, Viridis Crusade

I wanted to give my army some fluff, based upon the hunt for Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka, the Ork leader that led the Waaagh! on Armageddon. After Ghazghkull's suspected command ship was seen retreating from Armageddon, Helbrecht swore an oath to pursue and destroy him. This is that crusade, the Vidiris Crusade.


  1. Hail brother, godspeed in your new enterprise. But as noble as your quest may seem, i'm afraid I must remark you about the infamous name of your Strike Cruiser. The Dies Irae and its princeps, Esau Turnet, were some of the most renowned traitors during the Horus Heresy.


    Suffer not the unclean to live.

  2. Hmm, my little traitor plan failed, we are discovered!

    Nah, considered it changed.. never looked into it! :p
