For Those We Cherish is a personal project of writer and artist Paul Pratt dedicated to a unique take on the Lamenters Adeptus Astartes Space Marine Chapter from the Warhammer 40000 universe. The site will explore custom miniature building – taking cues from the Inquisitor 28mm (Inq28) or “Inquisimunda” movements, and narrative stories that will drive all the miniature creations toward an end point that coalesces around the facets and themes of the Warhammer 40K universe.

For Those We Cherish merges the Grim Darkness of the Far Future with what many call the “Noblebright” elements of the recent stories coming from Games Workshop. These two seemingly contrary states are married and explored through the lens of the Lamenters Space Marines, known for their selfless heroics (the noble bright) in the face of an uncaring universe (the grim dark).

This project will feature custom miniatures, original narrative stories, and campaigns set during the Lamenter’s 100 year penitent crusade period. The Lamenter’s codex will serve as a launching point that explores the chapter immediately after the events of the Badab War and serves as a repository for all the background and characters created for this project. The story will be explored further in narrative snippets posted in the journal, highlighting progress of the miniature side of the project (these will also be compiled into a portfolio on the site for ease). The series narrative will broadly expand through campaign books released in the tradition of the Forge World Imperial Armour series.
