Ultramarine Nob

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

At the top of the spire is an Ork Nob, heavily armoured and looking to be controlling the transmission equipment sending out the Ork signal that we are here to halt. We see him, he sees us. We fight. In the skirmish, the Nob pulls out his rifle, aims, and presses a button on the […]

Tech-Use Support

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Alarms are blaring in the spire, possibly because we're assaulting it. An Ork voice comes on an intercom, in Low Gothic, getting frustrated about this being another one of so many pointless drills. Sensing the opportunity to save us some bother, Brother Democritus uses his technical abilities to try to turn the alarms off, to […]

Arse-out Assault

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

Ork buggies acquired, we park the Storm Raven and head towards the main ork camp, where the Dark Angel signal is being transmitted from. We reconnoitre the camp from afar, seeing it built on either side of a canyon, having a gladiatorial arena in the middle. The signal appears to be coming from near the […]

Shooting for the Demolition Skill

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

We take the Storm Raven assault craft from the watch station down to the planet, reconnoitring the various objectives from high altitude. The primary objective is to disable an ongoing transmission that continues to bring orks to the region. Secondary objectives include destroying an ork Gargant, and killing the ork leader in the main camp. […]

Computers Rarely Shoot Back

'As we recce the level, we should keep our eyes open for...' 'Orks!' '...computer terminals.' 'I prefer Democritus's plan.'

So It's Agreed

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

'The consensus is that we're going to recce this level.' 'Yes. Because, so far, there is only this level.'

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, […]

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 […]
