We Will Fight!
« on: August 12, 2005, 01:02:47 PM »
The milling mob was uneasy as Graf Martin took the balcony, it seemed the future may be bleak, the enemy relentless, soon to be knocking at the gates of Hohelburg itself.  With a measured pause, Martin's booming voice filled the courtyards...


"I say to the Throng as I said to advisers who have joined this crusade, I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many months of struggle and suffering.

You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength Sigmar has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.

You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

Let that be realized. No survival for the Empire, no survival for all that the Empire has stood for, no survival for the urge, the impulse of the ages, that mankind shall move forward toward his goal.

I take up my task in buoyancy and hope. I feel sure that our cause will not be suffered to fail among men. I feel entitled at this juncture, at this time, to claim the aid of all and to say, "Come then, let us go forward together with our united strength."




The swirling mob took all that could be made into a weapon and stormed to face the enemy, and the enemy did fall.  The enemy rode back to the winter wastes.  The enemy slinked back to their decadent cities.  Sigmar would be triumphant!

Not at all.  The best form of flattery is mimicry. :wink:
