    25th Arcadian

    Hey guys, some fluff for my 25th Arcadian Rifles.

    25th Arcadian

    The Emperor’s Wrath hung in space, drawn alongside the enemy cruiser. Massive broadside guns on the side of either ship made a mockery of the other’s armour. But the enemy cruiser was gaining the upper hand. It drew close, ready for boarding action. The crew of the Emperor’s Wrath knew that this was likely to be their last action, and drew their pistols. Time seemed to slow as the enemy ship drew level with the Emperor’s Wrath. The cold hollow noise of the air locks being breached filled the ship with noise and terror. Then everything went quiet. The defenders held their breath, waiting, almost hoping for the end to come. Then with a crack the enemy poured in. Brutish in appearance, they shouted as they ran towards the seemingly beaten crew. But then a loud crack sounded. Colonel Destraine with his 25th Arcadian Rifles had arrived.
    “RELOAD!? shouted the Colonel as the enemy came ever closer.
    “FIRE!? The crack of rifles was heard again. The enemy wavered. They had not expected such resistance. They had expected that the crew would be a push over, and that the ship would be theirs. They had not reckoned with the 25th Arcadian. But the enemy wanted the ship badly, and so charged the 25th with ferocious urgency. The 25th began to slowly pull back.

    In the command bridge of the Emperor’s Wrath Commissar Addoran paced, his dress cloak gently sweeping the ground as he walked. He looked at Colonel Destraine. “How much time do you think we have?? he asked.
    “I don’t know.? Admitted the Colonel.
    “We must take the fight to the enemy, we must - ?
    “Commissar, the enemy are too many. We cannot hope to survive this ghastly affair.?
    “I don’t care whether there is one, or a million. If it is an enemy I will see it dead.? Growled the Commissar.
    Colonel Destraine thought hard. “It is agreed. We take the fight to the enemy. Death or Glory.?
    “Aye,? the Commissar nodded. “Death or Glory.?

    The men of the Arcadian 25th had done well but it was not enough. The enemy just kept on coming. Inside each soldier’s head a little voice told him to run. That voice was growing louder by the moment. The nerve of the soldiers was a breaking point. Then they saw the enemy coming. They could see in their mad, mad eyes that this was it. The end. But above the roar of rifles, weapons, and above the shouts of the enemy came the booming voice Commissar Addoran.
    “YOU WILL HOLD!? bellowed the Commissar.
    “PREPARE FOR ADVANCE!? cried Colonel Destraine, and the sound of bayonets being fixed to rifles echoed around the ship.
    “MEN OF ARCADIA! DO YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER!?? The Commissar’s voice was full of passion, and glory.
    The reply was unanimous.
    “ADVANCE!? shouted Colonel Destraine as he drew his sword, and marched with his soldiers towards the now uncertain enemy. Commissar Addoran was a giant, sweeping many enemies with a single blow of his sword, shouting
    “DEATH OR GLORY! FOLLOW ME MEN! FOR THE EMPEROR!?
    The enemy broke. With a yell that could scare the gods themselves the 25th Arcadian Rifles pursued.

    I shall never forget the sacrifice that those brave men made that day. They sacrificed themselves so that we, the crew of the Emperor’s Wrath might live. But that day it was they who were the Emperor’s wrath. In my entire career as a naval officer I have never had the privilege of witnessing such a heroic defence. It is my sincerest hope that each and every one of the names of the men who fought that day be entered into the annals of honour of their regiment. May the Emperor receive the souls of the 25th, and may they rest with Him for eternity.


    Captain Ravensburg,
    Captain of the Emperor’s Wrath

    Very nice fluff but I doubt that lasguns go "crack" after all they're lasers.

    He does from my list, yeah. I didn't know what to call my Commissar, so Addoran seemed a fitting enough name. Also very gothic. I must rep him sometime.

    Commander of XIII Arcadian here. I notice our numbers are growing, maybe one day Arcadians will be inserted in the codex. I'm working on fluff about planet Arcadia and its armies, hope to find the time to complete it some day.

    They could well go crack. After all, they may be lasers, but they suddenly and violently heat up the air, thus causing an effect much like an explosion.

    I agree the 'do you want to live forever' thing is really cliched. I'd suggest changing it.

    Otherwise, damn cool.
