The Emperor Moves in Mysterious Ways

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Somehow, we don't manage to surprise the orks inside the main entrance to the watch station. Something to do with security cameras in the airlock. We have to fight our way in. One ork has a fully automatic weapon, and he opens fire on our Brother Lucian. One bullet hits. It's a decent hit too, […]

We'll Explain Inside

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

The remaining orks are defeated with relative ease, and we move on to the main entrance of the watch station. The airlock door is closed, with the controls overridden from the inside. We don't have all day to let Brother Gadriel get us in, so Brother Lucian steps up and hacks in to the controls […]

Swing and a Hit

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

The orks attack! One swings a buzzsaw down on Brother Gadriel, who, being an assault marine, effortlessly parries the blow with his power sword. Of course, a non-power weapon being parried by a power weapon doesn't end well for the non-power weapon. The buzzsaw shatters as the two weapons strike each other, much to our […]

Set References to 'Stun'

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

We take our mission oath and are on our way to the watch station. 'What? Where are we?' Brother Gadriel, assault marine, pilot, perhaps should be paying more attention. 'We're in the pipe, five by five.' 'I'll fly casual. But not too casual.' 'Transmit Ride of the Valkyries on all frequencies.' 'I'd be okay with […]

Have You Tried Turning it Off and On Again?

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

We have a new kill team and a new mission. A watch station has gone quiet, a watch station that was recently visited by the Mortis Thule space hulk. It is suspected that the orks that we briefly monitored whilst on the hulk disembarked and have attacked. Our mission is to investigate the watch station, […]

An/Us

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

The climactic fight is over, but not the climactic escape. Our minuscule section of the Mortis Thule, blown away from the space hulk itself, is hurtling towards a city on the planet below. It will hit with the force of a nuclear blast. We have an option to try to use the engines of the […]

Taking it Like a Queen

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

I am the tyranid queen. What an honour, what a privilege. But with great power comes great responsibility, so when Brother Lucius decides to shoot me I have to remind myself of who I really am and stop myself from dodging. Maybe I can go further than making myself a stationary target. The tyranid queen […]

To Know Your Enemy, You Must Become Your Enemy

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

The damned tyranid queen won't stand still. I can't get a solid hit on the xenos scum unless I can dedicate a full round to attacking with my force sword, as it will simply dodge my attempts otherwise. I have to resort to my Avenger psychic power, engulfing the queen with flames instead. Of course, […]

Give me a Second

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Fighting back the tyranid horde, trying to engage the tyranid queen, Brother Lucian finds himself at a disadvantage in running out of ammo in his clip. 'I'll reload my gun. It's all I can do at the moment.' On the one hand, this is the first time in the adventure that Lucian has had to […]
