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 […]

Stuck in a Lift

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Clearing the bottom floor of the spire is just the first step. Thankfully, we find not one but two ways to get further up: a lift and an escalator. With Ultramarine Brother Lucian in command, naturally we take the lift. Of course, since we didn't manage to turn the alarms off before we started the […]

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 […]

Requisition a New Helmet

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

The machine spirit grants us access to the armoury, where we can requisition some different equipment. Being updated by the machine spirit of the watch station also gives us new mission objectives, which gives us an opportunity to choose a new leader and retake our mission oath. We decide the mission oath remains relevant and […]

Computers Rarely Shoot Back

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

'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.'


Thursday, April 24th, 2014

'Okay, Brothers, which way do we go? And the first person to say "left is the righteous path" will be—Ow! What was that for?' 'You said it first.'

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 […]
