Different Fires“Why do you use that funny thing?” Alarice asked, indicating the meltagun Septimus Kreed cradled in his lap. “It hardly reaches farther than the flamer, and it cannot fill a space when you must attack.”
“It hits harder, though,” he answered. She gave him a look that made it clear she thought that made no sense, so he shrugged. “I was in the Guard before Zoltan Pick changed my career. I was in my third campaign with the Twelve-Seventieth Graendan, and someone had decided that meant I deserved to carry the special weapon for one of the veteran fire teams.” He picked up the rag he’d been using to clean his weapon. “One day, this inquisitor shows up and demands a specialist to accompany his taskforce because he’s one short. So, they handed me this meltagun and sent me with him. Before I knew it, I was permanently assigned to his service.”
“Melta’s a damn good
Faith for Vengeance previewAmong the echoing sounds of war silent voices offer their prayers to the mighty lord in his once glorious shrine. Now reduced to shattered ruin by the ravages of everlasting conflict and desecration, yet still the finest of its defenders kneel before its holy altar like so many before them. However sadly this moment of praise simply won't last as all too familiar warcry thunders out in the air, soon followed in by a hail of thundering fire coming from outside. Sparking life into the quiet vox-channels as rounds start whistling around before the answering roar of a sacred bolter arrives to greet the approaching cluster of greenskins.
"Enemy contact! Mob approaching fast from east side, seemingly a small force."
"Understood. Brother Zandros will give you support."
"Heading into position."
"You better hurry up Zandros or there might be none left when you get here."
"Hahah!! Knowing you there will be more than plenty Darius."
"Focus on the task at hand brothers. We shall not allow any filt
40K - Shield Of DornHopefully, the day wouldn’t get any worse. Almost as soon as the Battle Barge Sword Of Vengeance had left the warp, the shipboard Astropath had spontaneously died and the Navigator had ejected himself from the Navigation chamber screaming that the Astronomican was gone. It was doubtful that they would be able to go very far after they succeeded here, which meant that this might be the last Quest of the Paladins Glorious.
Justin looked out the open bay door of the Stombird Fearless Charge. Bellum Luxos was burning, despite the best efforts of Captain Trebian and Second Company. It was a good thing that the other four companies had arrived, even though the true objective laid out by Lord Thanatos wasn’t actually the salvation of the planet. In this instance, rescuing the population was on the way to retrieving the Shield Of Dorn, and the Marshal Defender had dispensed his men accordingly.
Justin felt that it was somehow more than coincidence that
Lattian IIISeptimus Kreed stepped off of the shuttle. He hadn’t been expecting a big reception, but there wasn’t even anyone waiting to show him where he was headed. Normally, even that wouldn’t have been a problem: He had visited countless hive worlds before, and he didn’t honestly expect Lattian III to vary much – if at all – from the standard pattern. However, his first inquest under Horatius Scaevola was supposed to be quite low-key, even for an informal Inquisitorial investigation, and the only thing he knew as yet was that they were supposed to keep things as inobtrusive as possible at this point.
He had assumed that someone was going to meet him, because he had not actually been informed of where on the planet their operational center was.
