The Cross of Dorn is an ancient Naval Battleship, of the Black Templars.[1]


Though it looks deceptively small, compared to the gargantuan vessels of Chapter's fleets, the Cross of Dorn dates back to the early days of the Dark Age of Technology. The warship still holds the mysterious and now forbidden powers of that long-forgotten era and was given to the Black Templars, upon their Founding, by their Primarch Rogal Dorn. The Cross of Dorn was his gift, reward and blessing to both the newly created Chapter and its first High Marshal Sigismund. However the warship is one of the most closely guarded secrets of the Black Templars and only a few chosen members of the Chapter know of its existence. When the Cross of Dorn is not in use, it rests deep within the Reclusiam hangars of the Black Templars' flagship, the Eternal Crusader.[1]

The Cross of Dorn is currently commanded by the Sword Brethren Augustin Riegerwald. He is using it in his battle with the Ork Freebooter Kaptin, Grotmaz Smart.[1]
