Greetings Guardsmen,

Today we bring you an unparalleled opportunity for glory.

The Ecclesiarchy are looking for willing volunteers to join a Crusade of the Righteous into the Ocularis Terribus.*

As you are currently on route to Cadia to take part in a potential live-fire learning opportunity anyway, you will be delighted to learn that you have been volunteered for glory in this Crusade.

The Emperor has bestowed a great honour upon you.

Most Guardsmen only dream of one day seeing a Living Saint of the Emperor, and you get to fight alongside one in righteous battle – and no less a legendary figure than Saint Celestine herself, most holy and beautific of the Emperor’s warriors in the entire Imperium! 

You will also be able to witness the glorious might of the Black Templars Space Marines at war.


For those of you who have not witnessed the zeal and fury of the Emperor’s Angels in battle before, this is a rare blessing and we are sure it will be illuminating**.  

This is a huge honour for you, but we are sure they are just as delighted to be assigned battle duty alongside [INSERT SACRIFICIAL CRUSADE AUXILIARY REGIMENT HERE], since we all fight in the Emperor’s name.

Wow, a Crusade fleet – Lucky you.

We at the Regimental Standard wing of the Departmento Munitorum are very envious of the glory you are about to win. We would dearly love to join you, but our presence is required on Terra to ensure all commendation forms are processed properly***.

Have a great campaign though.


Though for the Day:
‘Beyond the Emperor’s reach lies only darkness and despair.’


* Eye of Terror. Don’t worry though, it’s just a name.
** In further good news, the chances of acquiring a commendation**** in battle increases 17-fold when deployed to the same battlefield as Adeptus Astartes.
*** There is currently a backlog of worthy candidates, so processing times may be in excess of 106 Terran years.
**** 94% of battlefield commendations are awarded posthumously.
