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 […]

Who Told You That?

'What does paranoia do?' 'It makes you paranoid.'

'A quartet of genestealers appears. Cadmus gets to act.' I think the warp is starting to affect me. I'm pretty sure we're not actually in a space opera.

Genestealer Grenade

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Thermagaunts, hormagaunts, and genestealers, oh my! Even more xenos monsters appear to test our mettle. The source appears to be a Cthulhu-like monstrosity at the edge of the arena, shrouded in darkness, and if we can't take him down then we'll need to retreat. So I start looking for a retreat, preferably in to the […]

Not Knowing What We Know

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

Tyranid termagaunts! A scuttling noise behind us, as we examine the wreck of another Imperial ship fated to be a permanent fixture of the space hulk Mortis Thule, turns out to be a new Tyranid menace. Lucius recognises them. 'This doesn't look good. They generally swarm the field by the thousands.' 'It's a good thing […]

I'm Guessing They Rip

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

Abandoning our ship, now itself a part of the space hulk, we enter the Mortis Thule to map as much as we can whilst attempting to find a means to escape before it transitions back in to the warp. We are heading down a darkened corridor when movement is detected ahead. Skittering towards us come […]

UN Operation

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

Brother Thaddius disappears, sucked in to the warp, only to be instantly replaced by Brother Cadmus, a Dark Angel devastator marine. 'You're from the Dark Angel chapter too? That gives us three Dark Angel brothers, who keep to themselves and are naturally withholding of personal information, and one Ultramarine.' 'So, three Brits and one American?'
