The Cross of Antioc

This robust medal was made as an award to Heroes who stood out in a particular way during the reclamation war for the Forge World Antioc.

Antioc had long been in Chaos hands when the Legio B&C and the Adeptus Mechanicus (alongside the Scions of Dorn, the Imperial Guard and many others), initiated a Crusade to take it back. – This war has since been known as “the Crusade for Antioc”.

The Crusade for Antioc was a particularly treacherous war; as the barrier between the material world and the Aether was abnormally thin, allowing daemonic influence to slip into the minds of even the most powerful of individuals.
With regards to this, anyone who received the Cross of Antioc and lived is usually regarded as extremely strong willed and faithful to the Imperium of man.

The medal itself is made out of cast iron, but it also sports a gold and silver half-sphere under slightly blue tinted glass that represents the planet of Antioc.
The continents are marked in gold, while the great ash-waste "seas" are represented by pure white silver. – The protective glass globe over the intricate planet is in turn representative of the planet’s atmosphere, which much like was the case with the actual planet, tints the white silvery ash wastes with blue, making them seem like oceans when seen from afar.

The front of the medal holds the words “Antioc Crusade” and “Pax Imperialis” alongside a shield and the Imperial Aquilla.
This is in honour of those who died for the protection of the Pax Imperialis at Antioc.

The Medal also holds the initials A.O.D. which stand for “Arena of Death”. – This is a call sign for major battles in which the Legio B&C has been a key instigator and contributor.

Finally the backside of the medal holds the inscription: “Memento Vocis”.
Most uninitiated people believe this to mean: “remember their voices”, as in “remember those who where lost to us”; and indeed the inscription has this meaning, but to those who where there it also holds a much harsher reminder: “Be mindful of the voices of Chaos, or you may lose your mind, life and soul.”

It is notable that due to the size and weight of the medal, it is usually worn as a miniature representative only, or on a chain and ribbon around the neck.

Officially, only forty medals where made, sanctioned and bestowed upon "The Heroes of Antioc".
Most of these where presented posthumously.
But it should be noted that sixteen medals where lost to enemy hands when the Inquisitorial ship "Inviolate" was stolen by traitor forces. - Their location is currently unknown and their use undetermined.
