Brother Captain Stern

Grey Knight Terminator

40K3 conversion by Tom and Erik Setzer; Based on 40K2 background and rules by Mike Freeman

If you have Dark Millenium, then you've problably read the story about Brother Captain Stern. See, he was this Termie who lead a squad to take out a rogue govenor, but the govenor turned out to be possed by a Lord of Change named M'Kachan. They are supposedly old enemies, and the story ends with Stern commanding his troops to open fire on the Daemon. This whole rivalry thing was made very interesting when Codex Chaos came out, revealing a Daemon Prince who's name was, gasp, M'Kachen!(If anyone is wondering how I know so much about the Chaos Codex, it' s cause my brother is a freakin Chaos commander.) The only official rivals in the 40K universe are Ghazkull and Yarrick, but I love making them up. So, this completes one, as M'Kachen's arch-nemesis is about to rear his Termie head.

Brother Captain Stern of the Grey Knights Space Marine Chapter(if this is wrong, please mail me, as I can't remember which chapter he belongs to, and I can't find my Dark Millenium rulebook at the moment,) has had a long and illustrious career serving the Emperor's will. A master psyker, and brave warrior, Stern is adept at daemon hunting. He has banished many a foul monstrosity of Chaos back to the Warp from which they came, and was responsible for the slaying of the Great Unclean One Nur'golth One battle stands out in his impeckable battle record. His fight with the Daemon Prince M'Kachen. Now M'Kachen is a crafty character to say the least, and is more than a match for any more than the most skilled Farseer or the most revered Chief Libirarian. But Stern managed to banish him back to the Warp using his own indomitable will. Some say tha M'Kachen was just toying with the Captain, and he was far superior. This was set to the test when they met again, this time on an Imperial world where M'Kachen had possesed a Govenor. When Stern arrived, he was surprised to see his old nemesis. Attempting to blast him bak to the Warp with his mind, Stern hurled a pychic bolt at the daemon. Unfortunatley, this did not work, but M'Kachen was driven off by the fire of the squads Nemesis force weapons. Stern swears that if he ever meets M'Kachen again, he will destroy the beast once and for all.
