I just finished my entry, methinks. It comes to just over the minimum limit, though - is that considered "short" in the scheme of things? Do entries tend to run shorter or longer?

What should I do, hit Khorne Berzerkers with my symbol of office? Man, you're gonna be sorry if I die... dicks."

A few months ago I did half a prologue for my Chapter's history. It comes to 937 words so far. I had 10+ chapters planned so I'd better get moving (or just wait for next year...). Might get it finished on time, but no promises at all.

EDIT: How many engines des a Battle Barge have? I assumed 4 (I put that in my story) but I now think it might be 2. Heeeeelp! Please?

Different patterns or variants might have a different number, so you could take some license with it.; you could try to find a rear view of one of the BFG models for a canon number, though.
