No worries... I just submitted a Barmy Army story to a competition

I don't know how to edit the thread title - can someone do it for me?

[40K] Marneus Calgar's Barmy Army: A Christmas Calgar (2012 Xmas Special)

The sledge looked sized for one of Santa's elves. It was made of shiny red plastic. There were no engines or weapons.
"Perfect?" Calgar snorted. "You couldn't fit Kevin McCallister in that! How are four of us going to get in?"
"You didn't give me enough points to buy anything proper. I had to get what I could afford."
"You fething wally, it isn't even blue." Calgar inspected the tag which was still attached. "Fun for children aged two to six."
"Milo does have a point, my Lord," said Dick. "When I suggested that we're meant to be the most balanced Chapter and should allocate our spending for all contingencies, you said and I quote 'If I want to hear the raving of a leftist commie, I'll watch BBC News'."

There's no link to my story in the first post of this thread. Calgar-hater

It says 4-5,000 words. This exceeds that by a huge margin. Is that a minimum limit, or do I need to submit something else?

It is a set minimum of 4000 words and a set maximum of 5000 words, hence why I haven't added it yet (that and I've been out all day which doesn't help )

For me, if I have trouble writing I find the best thing is to normally just sit down and read a book or two. Good luck mate!

For shame, why o' why did my old account die in the hacking incident and just discover this now. I could get to 50 in a couple months, but I won't go on a posting rampage just to meet the qualification. Tsk.

Hm.

I have an idea for this.

Hopefully my brain won't be a complete prick, and I'll be able to get something up - Good luck, everyone!

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'
