Abandoning our ship, now itself a part of the space hulk, we enter the Mortis Thule to map as much as we can whilst attempting to find a means to escape before it transitions back in to the warp. We are heading down a darkened corridor when movement is detected ahead. Skittering towards us come […]

'As far as we can see, we can't see anything.'—Lucien.
Brother Thaddius disappears, sucked in to the warp, only to be instantly replaced by Brother Cadmus, a Dark Angel devastator marine. 'You're from the Dark Angel chapter too? That gives us three Dark Angel brothers, who keep to themselves and are naturally withholding of personal information, and one Ultramarine.' 'So, three Brits and one American?'
Smashing in to and dropping out of a warp breach half inside the legendary space hulk Mortis Thule changes our mission objectives a little. We have standing orders for being Space Marines, as well as for being Deatchwatch Space Marines in particular. On top of that, detaching ourselves from the Morthis Thule so that we […]

It's been a while since the last session. Do we even know where we are? 'Fenksworld.' '...really?' 'Yes.' 'Really?' '...no.' Okay, we're up to speed. Let's go.
There's been an incursion in the warp! This is generally not only bad, but often disastrous. The first sign of the incursion is ice forming on the walls of and a skein forming across the bridge. Then the crew goes a bit bonkers. The helmsman goes wild, leaping out of his chair and attacking Brother […]
We make it to the genestealer broodlord's lair. There is blood, ichor, and bodies everywhere. Everything I learnt from playing D&D helps now that I'm a space marine. I look up, giving us enough time to notice the broodlord dropping down from the ceiling, and ensuring we're not surprised. Our bolters chatter, spewing explosive rounds […]
