Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade Ends 2013 with Space Marines

Posted Thu, Dec 19, 2013 by Martuk

The Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade team has been teasing a holiday surprise to end the year and today they delivered. The present is a short story from Graham McNeill, which both introduces the Space Marines faction and reveals the name of the planet. The short story is titled Space Marines, descent on Arkhona. Below is the opening excerpt:

“They fall like blazing teardrops through the skies of Arkhona. Five of them in a staggered, echelon formation. Too regular to be natural, too fast to be falling accidentally. They'd breached the troposphere in a blaze of squalling atmospherics, trailing scads of re-entry fire in their wake.”

If you like that be sure to read the full story on the Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade website. Welcome to Arkhona.
