Abaddon First Captain of the Sons of Horus.

“We were born for battle, Khayon. We were made to conquer the galaxy, not to rot in Hell and die upon our brothers’ blades… This is our Imperium.

Return to Isstvan. Phase 2.

The deadline has elapsed. The challenge is over. The dust has settled. Well, that’s what I thought. It seems if you roll a snow ball down a mountain, sometimes, it keeps on rolling.

#returntoisstvan: Lucas Collett’s Sons of Horus

Lucas, take a bow! You’ve cranked out a wonderous Sons of Horus force for the challenge. Without further ado, speak!
