    "They shall be my finest warriors, these ants who give themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest claws will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics and strategies such that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of the hive. They are my Army Ants and they shall know no fear."
