Chapter 56

The familiar explosion of a bolter shot echoed through the expanse, and Serghar's arm holding the sword of Kalncerak evaporated from the elbow upwards in a puff of red. He screamed and reeled as the sword flew away, where Adelana didn't have a clue; then Serghar collapsed onto his back, clutching at...

Chapter 55

The triumphant roaring didn't take long to die down as the utter, overwhelming exhaustion overtook everyone except the civilians, who seemed more shocked and utterly confused than tired. Or they wept when they realised the terrible truth of their situation. Adelana couldn't blame them, she more than...

Chapter 54

Tresch wasn't singing. This despite having learned it during his youth in the Schola Progenium and having sung it loud and clear as a child there. Then after he joined the Adeptus Arbites as a young adult and many years after in law enforcement, as his attitude slowly soured and he became more and m...

Chapter 52

Thanks to their elevated position and solid plasteel parapets, they'd made the corpses of The Resurrected pile up at the bases of the four escalators, so it was almost impossible for them to climb over, so they now tried to clear them; that just made them easier targets. Even still, Adelana kept her...

Chapter 51

Karmen cursed for what must have been the twentieth time in the span of about a minute. She wished she could leave her physical form; she wished she'd never gone on this foolish mission. But most of all she truly wished that they had succeeded in saving Omnartus. It was ridiculous, now of all times ...

Chapter 49

Attelus and the others emerged into a wide, well lit plastcrete corridor and at the end of it, perhaps fifteen metres away there was the tops two separate large escalators and opened out into what might've been the main lobby of the tower. Kalakor's bolter switched about as he prowled forwards someh...

Chapter 48

Attelus' power sword sent Serghar's stabbing blade off course. Then Attelus' round-house kick smashed into the side of the female agent who had Helma pinned. His front kick crashed into the curved swordsman's jaw, which shattered it and sent him spinning and writhing to the floor. Attelus sent out a...

Chapter 47

Tathe reloaded his laspistol for what seemed the millionth time and blasted a flurry from the hip, taking down about seven Resurrected charging for him; all of them seemed to have Adreen's face, but he ignored it. Did his father think him so sentimental? So pathetic? He was an Imperial commissar; ma...

Chapter 44

Karmen was down to her last clip, but Kalakor seemed almost done all the while the bellows of his bolter went in rhyme with hers. She couldn't help but wonder how a simple line sergeant could have learned such complex sorcery, and she came up with many differing and wild theories. And none of them w...

'Where did they go?' Adelana cried. 'Where did he go?' 'I have no frigging clue,' snapped Darrance. 'Shut it and get yourself under control, calm your damned farm and all that crap, damn it.' Adelana shut it, mostly out of bemusement for Darrance's strange colloquialism. The beeping from the scanner...

'What?' said Attelus. The daemon smiled or at least it may have been a smile. 'Well...an ultimatum to be more precise. You can either pledge you allegiance to the blood god, or I will just slaughter you and you will become his servant either way.' 'W-why?' Kharkartskar shrugged. 'If you give your so...

Jelket now advanced with the rest of the throne agents. They surrounded Karmen in an escort formation as Halsin tried his best to treat Kamen's wounds as they jogged down the hill in the middle of the Imperial Guard ranks. Jelket's, Vark's and Helma's Hellguns as well as Hayden's long las were dedic...

'You did it, Karmen,' said Tathe turning to the psyker. She didn't respond but kept stepping, due to the servos of her power armour Tathe was sure. A chill blasted through Tathe, he hoped he hadn't got her killed. He met the gaze of the nearby Vark and pointed to Karmen. Vark nodded and began to app...

Editor's note: Wow, it's been ages since I last updated here. I don't know why; just distracted by a lot of things. Most especially became obsessed with my 40k and minis. My apologies.

With a roar and a swipe of her hands, Karmen sent the last few remaining resurrected flying off the ledge with her telekinesis and falling into the depths of the hill with flailing limbs. Each one was different in one way or another, but Karmen had lost the ability to care about the differences. Eve...

Kalakor chose to remain in the hangar just in case more Resurrected appeared, while Attelus and Adelana struggled through the weaving, winding ship toward the cockpit. Darrance warned them of each turn before it happened, which was now almost every few seconds, but that didn't stop them crashing and...

Attelus and Kalakor didn't bother with stealth or subtlety, and the Space Marine led the way as they stepped out of the corridor and onto the hangar's catwalk. Instantly las and solid shots rained against Kalakor's power armour, and Kalakor raised his bolter and replied in kind. Attelus slipped past...

Tathe blinked back the tiredness as his body seemed to move in autopilot and raised his laspistol to put a bolt through the skull of yet another Velrosian trooper. Yet another trooper who Tathe recognised but refused to recall the name of or what squad he was from. Dellenger on his right shot flurry...

The Sovirthians held the line, and they did it frigging well. Tathe couldn't help but be amazed by their skill and discipline even when daemons advanced among the Resurrected's ranks. Tathe didn't know the casualties the Soviritians suffered, and he didn't want to know, just to allow him and his men...

The enemy seemed to pour over the lip of the incline in a never-ending tide in a desperate bid to keep the Sovrithians and The Elbyrans from meeting. The Elbyrans were locked in melee, still pushing forward despite the odds. At the same time, Jelket and the Sovrithians laid down a constant hail of l...

Karmen was overwhelmed by exhaustion; the servos of her power armour were what kept making her take step after step forward. Advancing in front of her were Vark and Verenth; they'd both run out of ammo, so Vark fought with a bayonet attached to his hell gun, while Verenth had 'borrowed' a las gun wi...

The gun line was dying, both literally and figuratively. Ammunition was growing scarce. Tathe didn't know the exact number of men who still had ammo and who didn't. Tathe was a commissar, not a colonel or general; logistics weren't his responsibility until he'd taken over the contingent and had to l...

He heard Adelana scream his name. His mind and sight was a swirling haze, but the view of the descending sword was clear to him. It seemed to move in slow motion. He should've seen this coming; he should've known he was no match for his father. But through it, all six words broke into his mind. Hard...
