Forge World Newsletter #413

Oh Yes.....

Though it helps that I'm a big fan of the Horus Heresy story in which they first appeared...

The Gal Vorbak is built upon the remnants of the Serrated Sun Chapter of the Word Bearers Legion, the conquerors of the primitive world of Cadia who looked into the depths of the Eye of Terror itself and in doing so were changed for all time. Their psyches infiltrated by creatures from the darkness of the Æther, the survivors are named the Gal Vorbak, or “Blessed Sons” in the language of Colchis, and are possessed of strengths and abilities far above those of other Astartes.

It is said that each of the Gal Vorbak was host to some form of Warp entity, itself subservient to the greater scheme plotted between Warmaster Horus and the nightmare powers beyond. In battle, this being comes to dominate the mind and body of the warrior. His already mighty form swells as hands turn into rending talons and jaws into slavering, fang-filled maws twisted beyond reason and reality. At Isstvan V, the Word Bearers’ pact with the horrors beyond was sealed in a great ritual of carnage and betrayal.

“That which we foolishly call truth, is only a small island in a vast sea of the unknown. For man to truly flourish he must be willing to abandon the ever shrinking island of such petty ‘truth’ and surrender himself to the reality of that which is beyond.”
