1st place, Treesnifer, Death of a White Shield, 3pts

A unique take on this month's theme, and I have to say that you pulled it off very well. I was reminded of the quote, which I can't remember the source, that "cowards die many times before their deaths, the valiant taste death but once". Not saying Abelard and his comrades are cowards, because I'm sure I would run all the same in the face of an artillery barrage . I imagine that abelard died or thought himself dead a number of times in this story, and each time he does so, he resurrects, only to die again until he sheds the persona of his old self and becomes valiant.

I hope that made some sense, haha, anyway, great story.

2nd place, Brother Emund, Cannon Fodder, 2pts

A classic take on the theme, Brother Emund, and sheds some light on military training in the 41st Millennium, though I hear that space marines like live-fire exercises when imperial guard are involved. An entertaining read, inspires me to write about Imperial Guard again, which I haven't in a looong time, haha. I'm curious though, have you served in the armed forces? Sorry if I'm being nosy, you just seem very knowledgeable on the subject.

Also, happy new year!

Tales of Heroism and Bravery, in the 41st Millennium and the Old World. Perhaps some Realm Gate Wars in the future .
