Gav Thorpe – By the Lion’s Command Audiobook (The Horus Heresy Series)text
The Legion applauded one more time, and Fulgrim s amusement turned promptly to sorrow as he understood that, but for Vespasian s stubbornness, a wonderful a lot of these warriors would certainly have made a fine enhancement to the army of the Warmaster s new crusade.
With such warriors fighting for the Warmaster, what heights of excellence would have been past them? Vespasian s refusal to permit his guys to example the heady thrills of Fabius s chemical stimulants, or to go through improving surgeries, had actually condemned the warriors as soon as under his command to death in the Warmaster s trap of Isstvan III. By the Lion’s Command Audiobook Free. He knew he ought to have gotten rid of Vespasian much sooner, and the mix of shame as well as excitement at the fatalities he had set in motion was a powerful alcoholic drink of sensations.
The Warmaster has actually requested our visibility immediately, screamed Eidolon through the cheering. Though Isstvan is not far remote, the problems in the Warp have come to be harder, so we need to make all haste. The strike cruiser Andronius will certainly leave for Isstvan in four hrs. When we show up, it will be as ambassadors for our Legion, and when the fight is done the Warmaster will certainly have experienced battle at its most magnificent.
Eidolon saluted and Fulgrim led the applause before transforming as well as taking his leave.
Currently he needed to supply on the 2nd part of his promise to the Warmaster.
Currently he had to convince Ferrus Claw to join their great effort. THE BEAT OF hammers and the battering of remote forges echoed with the Anvilarium of the Fist of Iron, yet Gabriel Santor, First Captain of the Iron Hands, hardly heard them. The Morlock Terminators stood guard around the edge of the chamber, the mightiest of them safeguarding evictions of the primarch s inner sanctum, the Iron Forge. Provided ghostly by the hissing clouds of vapor that rippled from the deck, the fearsome visage of the Morlocks placed Santor in mind of the vengeful predators that growled throughout the frozen expanse of Medusa for which they were called.
His heart beat in time with the mighty hammers much below, the idea of once more standing in the visibility of two of the mightiest beings in the galaxy filling him with pride, honour as well as, if he was straightforward, not a little trepidation.
Ferrus Claw stood close to him, resplendent in his dazzling, black battle armour as well as using a sparkling cloak of mail that shone like rotated silver. His high gorget of dark iron obscured the reduced part of his face, yet Santor understood his primarch well enough to understand that he was grinning at the idea of a reunion with his brother.
It will do my heart proud to see Fulgrim once again, Santor, stated Ferrus, and also Santor risked a sidelong glance at the primarch of the X Legion, listening to a note of wariness in his master s voice that echoed his own sensations on the issue.
My lord? he asked. Is something the matter?
Ferrus Claw transformed his flinty eyes on Santor and claimed, No, not specifically, my friend, yet you were there when we parted from the Emperor s Kid after the victory over the Diasporex. You understand that our Legions did not component as bros in arms should.
Santor nodded, keeping in mind well the ceremony of parting on the upper embarkation deck of the Pride of the Emperor. The ceremony was to be held aboard Fulgrim s flagship, for the Clenched fist of Iron had actually experienced horrendous damages when it had actually obstructed the Diasporex cruisers closing on the Firebird, and also the Primarch of the Emperor s Children had actually considered it unfit for a ceremony of such magnitude.
Though such a pronouncement had incensed its captain and also staff, Ferrus Manus had laughed off his bro s rash words and consented to come aboard the Satisfaction of the Emperor.
Surrounded by the Morlocks, Ferrus Manus and also Santor had actually marched with the rankings of elaborately armoured Phoenix az Guard towards the waiting kinds of the Phoenician and his battle captains. Gav Thorpe – By the Lion’s Command Audio Book Online. The march had felt like they were running an onslaught of adversary warriors instead of the praetorians of their closest bros.
In Santor s eyes, the ceremony had been wrapped up with unseemly rush, Fulgrim taking his bro in a welcome that was as awkward as their first had been wondrous. Ferrus Manus should definitely have observed the adjustment in his brother s port, but he had said nothing of it upon their return to the Fist of Iron. A tightening up of the primarch s jaw as he saw the 28th Exploration convert into the churning maelstrom of the warp had actually been the only indication that he felt slighted by his sibling s cold.
