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 […]

I Thought He Was an Umbrella Stand?

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

The chained Dark Angel space marine is in front of us. We detected his beacon, followed it to the ork camp, and staged a daring raid through the middle of the camp to reach him. So, naturally, I thrust my force sword through his neck. My colleagues are somewhat perplexed at my reaction. I can't […]

The A-Hard

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

We need to hit the ork camp. Turning their fuel dump in to a fireball should work as a diversion, at which point we can drive our buggies through the camp towards the arena. But how to get in to the arena, which is deep in a canyon running through the middle of the camp? […]

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 […]

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.'

Right

'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 […]

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, […]
