Good news, Guardsmen!
With only a few days left to go, the delusional warlord known as Haarken Worldclaimer’s proclamation that “in 80 days, Vigilus will belong to the Warmaster” has been conclusively proven to be nothing but empty bluster.
Having cunningly lured several of our foes to Vigilus at once, we are preemptively declaring TOTAL VICTORY on the planet. For the “Black Legion” to take our world in the remaining time on this presumptuous countdown would be impossible, requiring nothing less than the sudden arrival of thousands of Heretic Astartes and a Gloriana-class Battleship.
As the “Black Legion” were almost totally exterminated on Cadia, and as these vile traitors are unlikely to have properly maintained such a venerable vessel, we are confident in our estimations that Vigilus is safe. Indeed, our prognosticators inform us of a large warp disruption approaching the planet – we can only assume that it is Roboute Guilliman and his fleet, here to complete our liberation of the world.
As we wait for the final confirmation of our success, we welcome all Guardsmen to celebrate by redoubling their efforts in purging the various menaces too foolish to realise the depths of their defeat.*
++ Thought For The Day: Facts are chains that bind perception and fetter truth. For a man can remake the world if he has a dread and no facts to cloud his mind. ++
* To allow you maximum time to celebrate, all rest periods between combat deployments have been replaced with more combat deployments. Non-compliance with this directive will be treated as tacit support for the Heretic Astartes and punished as such.
