PostSubject: Furia   Mon Oct 30, 2017 9:57 pm

[Continued from Shattered Moons.]

The ripples give way to a vast endless ocean and the hulk of an old void ship that has speared itself into the ocean. Zar finds himself at the top of this once mighty machine.

An immediate crippling pain comes over him and he falls to his knees. As he braces his fall he sees his hands and forearms are the material of the Crimson Blade. The pain keeps racing through Zar as he feels a power coarse through his veins.

[Replace Crimson Blade with Crimson Gauntlets: Melee 1d10+8; Felling (3); Tainted; Special: Grants +15 to Parry and arms are immune to damage.]

[New Talents: Swift Attack, Unarmed Warrior, Unarmed Master. New Traits: Unnatural Strength (+1) for a total of 3, Brutal Charge (+1) for a total of 2, Natural Weapon: Crimson Gauntlets. +15 Corruption points]

As the pain subsides that familiar itch in the back of Zar's head returns... the demon.

[Passed corruption threshold. Infamy check to gain the attention of Khorne http://orokos.com/roll/564738 = 34 vs 35, pass]
[Gift of the gods - Rewards of Khorne table = http://orokos.com/roll/564739 = 79, Reroll has already got Mark of khorne, http://orokos.com/roll/564740 = 43, Face of Khorne, Gains Fear (2) trait and Peer - Mortal followers of Khorne]


Zar rose to his feet a changed man and not just because of the merging of the crimson blade. His face was contorted into an amalgamation of man and bull, his nostrils had become flared and more pronounced and billowed thick black smoke that reeked of funeral pyres as he snorted at the demons intrusion. His brow had become thicker and overhung his eyes that now shone with the inner light of Khorne’s bone-furnaces.

Before replying to the demon Zar marveled at what had become of his arms; it looked as though they were covered in a bronzed metal armour but he knew, no felt that it was more than that. The blade had become apart of him and the rending claws were potent at dealing death and reaping skulls for Khorne, just as the sword was. Smoke billowed again from his nostrils as he shook his head and looked around... he had no idea where he was.

"This is Koricks doing...?" it was not a question so he continues on "Do you know where we are demon, as I get the idea that this ain't any place on the Shattered Moons?" While he spoke with the demon Zar started to look for either a way down or a hatch into the vessel.

Zar can feel the demon looking through his own eyes, "Hmm, Furia. The land of... well no land. It's a planet entirely covered by water."

Zar peaks over the edge and can now see how far up he is. From his estimates he's 4 kilometers above the water. Down by where the ship and water meet there are boats tied up. Someone else might be aboard.

A quick look around Zar's immediate area reveals a partially popped open access hatch.

Furious Zar throws his head back and yells "KOOORRRRICKK!" to the heavens, he hoped the bastard whore-son had survived his maiming as Zar wanted to bleed him dry, eat his heart and take his skull and he didn't particularly care in which order.

Warriors of Khorne, true ones at least did not use stealth and Zar figured if whoever lives here found him first it would save him some wasted wandering so he wrenches the hatch open and starts the long climb down not caring to remain quiet.

Zar descends into the voidship. The interior is like any other he remembers from his time in the Imperial Guard. Dull and boring. He passes by a few bodies who've withered away into bones as he steadily makes progress down. As he keeps descending he catches hints of someone salvaging the ship or fortifying it. It looks like a combination of both to Zar's eyes. A den for the weak.

All the noise he's making though seems to have captured the attention of someone. You hear a few hushed voices and weapon slides being drawn back [+0 perception test to see how many] somewhere down a corridor.

[Also, it's worth pointing out that Zar is without his Bolter and bolter pistol as they probably got left behind at the Shattered Moons when Zar went to fight the Champion and Korrick. His only weapon is the Crimson Gauntlets.]

Zars hand reflexively moves to his holstered bolt pistol at the noise only to find it empty, left behind along with his bolt gun on the Shattered Moons. No matter he thought, he’d been using them less and less as the months past preferring now to deal with his foes up close where his savagery gave him an advantage. They were cowards weapons, but even he saw the merit in occasionally using them. They’d have to be replaced. Perhaps whatever fool stood before him had replacements.

Snorting his irritability which sent coiling black smoke out from his extended and flared nostrils his glowing eyes glare into the darkness “I am Zar and I am unarmed.” grinning at his own mirth he holds his hands out palms open and slowly turns around “come forward as I wish to trade words.”

Zar counts four distinct sets of weapons being primed as you announce yourself.

Four hunched and dull eyed humans come out from around a corner weapons raised. Three of them with autoguns and the fourth with a chainsword. They all look like salvaged weapons from their beat up appearance.

They all get a look at the imposing Zar and stare into his bright burning eyes.

Castaway WP Rolls: 71, 32, 80, 59 (All fail)

Two of the hunched humans outright collapse dead at the sight of Zar. The one with the chainsword drops his weapon and runs screaming down the hall. The last one drops to his knees mumbling nonsense with his weapon still in hand.

"Weak," Crimson hisses out, "I've seen Imperial citizens stand their ground better then these wretches."

Zar felt the same distaste as Crimson at the pathetic behaviour of these four cretins which was evident from the scowl he sent the human now hunched before him. Stepping forward and looming over the crouched form, he took no pleasure at the effect he'd had on them, just the displeasure at their cowardice "You have 10 seconds to tell me what I wish to know. If you respond adequately you may see another day."

Zar reaches down to place one clawed hand on the kneeling mans head, the claws digging ever so slightly into his skull.

"Who rules here and where do I find them? And you'll get to live longer if you can guide me."

Intimidate https://orokos.com/roll/572909 = 70 vs 50, 2 DoF. The intimidate might not be needed considering his cowed state but wondering if I might get a bonus for his failed fear test and the fact that he's the only one left?

[Yeah, no need to intimidate. He's already fearing for his life.]

The wretch mutters aloud, "Captain Alekzander is the ruler. He's... he's at the captain's quarters." The wretch nods his head vigorously, "Yes, yes! I'll take you there this very moment."

He's very enthusiastic as he scuttles down the hall and Zar is forced to keep up.

Zar and the guide come up into a junction. It's large, littered with broken pieces, and with cast aside cargo boxes everywhere.

Crimson tickles the back of Zar's mind, "Captain Alekzander, hmmm. That name is familiar. Right... a rogue trader from the Kronus Expanse."

Before Zar can respond back Zar's guide disappears in a shower of gore. Zar's eyes immediately dart around looking for the perpitrator. A battle servitor packed in the middle of a squad of those hunchbacked humans with his heavy bolter smoking. Two fast moving figures also catch his attention. Short gaunt things that have Mono-talons and viscerator-limbs. Murder servitors.

Castaway Squad WP Roll: 93 (failure)

Seems the survivor of his first encounter gathered up some friends. Like before when the hunchback humans catch a glimpse of Zar they turn tail and run. That leaves Zar with the inhuman beings of the room, the servitors.

[1 Battle Servitor [heavy bolter], 2 Murder Servitors]

It would be an inglorious death running at the heavy bolter, so with a snarl at having to play cat and mouse Zar darts behind a nearby cargo crate. Hunkering down and keeping to cover as much as possible Zar moves in the direction of the combat servitor looking for a suitable place to deal with the murder servitors which he assumed would be on him at any moment.

Zar is able to find himself some cover from the battle servitor before it's sensors can get a lock on him.

The Murder Servitors don't care that Zar has found cover though as they come racing in at blinding speed.

Murder Servitor Actions: Charge

Murder Servitor WS Rolls: 87 (1 DoF), 72 (2 DoS)

Damage (if not parried of dodged): 13 (Pen: 2)

The murder servitors were quick, quicker than Zar, but he was The Crimson Servant a combat master. It was easy for him to see the attack coming almost before the servitor started to execute it, the roll of its shoulder telegraphing the move. Zar's arm snaps out to parry the attack and he allowed the servitors blade to run along his forearm throwing up sparks while it dissipated the attacks power.

The claws of his gauntlet thirsted although the oil of the servitors was an extremely poor substitute for blood, it would no less be spilled. Flexing his right hands fingers wide he brings his claw diagonally down and across at the servitors legs...

Zar bellows in scorn at the fallen servitor and the clumsy attack of the other, a plume of funeral pyre smoke bursting from his bull-like nostrils. This was no challenge and while combat was always preferable to anything else, he struggled to get his blood up. Snarling at what the situation at being whisked away from the fight with Korrick and the poor replacements that were put before him he swipes his claws at the remaining servitors midriff.

[Round 3]

Zar wastes no time taking advantage of the Murder Servitor getting one of its weapons stuck. Without the ability to dodge out of the way the Murder Servitor is ripped to shreds by Zar.

[2 Murder Servitors Dead]

The battle servitor bids its time as it knows Zar will have to come out from cover eventually.

[End of Round 3]

[There is cover leading up to the battle servitor but Zar will have to bound from cover to cover exposing himself each time.]

Zar flicks his hands to remove the oil of the servitors from his claws while he gathered his thoughts. He didn't fancy his chances running head long at the battle servitor and the cover looked poor for sneaking and considering he was heavy footed he didn't like his chances. His eyes settle on the side of a nearby cargo crate. Flexing his over-sized muscles he slams his claws into opposite edges of a crate and muscles bulging he rips its side off. Zar holds up the slab of metal, it was flimsy but better than his carapace, it would do for cover. Holding his improvised shield towards the direction of the servitor Zar runs out into the open, his plan to flit from cover to cover towards his foe.

Zar rushes out behind his cover with his improvised shield and the Servitor opens fire on him every chance it gets.

[Will just do four separate attacks to speed this up.]

Servitor BS Roll: 70 (5 DoF), 70 (5 DoF), 77 (5 DoF), 11 (3 DoS)

The Servitor is off its mark on three of Zar's hops but on the last hop it seems to have calibrated in the heavy bolter as it's able to land some shots on Zar.

Damage: 0 [Invulnerable arms are nice aren't they?]

The round hit him in the one place he doesn't care though... one of his arms. The bolt shells explode harmlessly off his right arm as Zar slides behind another cargo box.

[Zar is now within charging range of the Servitor.]

Zar obliterates the combat servitor who can't get his heavy bolter around in time.

[End of Combat]

Zar starts to calm himself down and he can feel Crimson itching at the back of his mind, "Before the fun began our guide mentioned a name. Captain Alekzander. I know him. A rogue trader from over a 100 years ago. How or why he's on Furia is interesting but not important. Did I mention he's quite an accomplished fighter as well. More then worthy I would say for us to claim his skull! Blood for the Blood God!" Crimson yells out and the words echo between Zar's ears.

"Skulls for the skull throne" Zar echos back at Crimson. "I know Rogue Traders by nature are well traveled, might he know something about the vault? Worth asking before I take his head." As he speaks with Crimson Zar checks over the dead to make sure they are truly so and considers the way forward. The fight with the servitors indicated to him that they were drawing close to the Rogue Traders realm and the captains quarters he assumed would somewhere at the front of the ship. Not that that helped much in this - other than the front of the ship is downwards and his ex-guide had lead him this way, so best to just press on.

Picking his way carefully and as quietly as possible through the detritus of the ship Zar continues his hunt.

"Ry'Kleth's vault? It is possible. It might be the reason why he's here in the Screaming Vortex."

Zar travels down the ship until he runs into a problem. The corridor comes to a harsh 90 degree drop. At the bottom is a set of spikes. Zar spots a ladder down at the bottom that must be used to traverse around the obstacle. It's been pulled back and set to the side.

On what would be the ceiling of the corridor leading down Zar spots an opened maintenance hatch. If he can make it across some how he would be able to go around the spikes. There is also the option of getting down as there. The area around the spikes is small but if Zar could get there he would be fine.

Zar gave the problem little thought, he was a bludgeon and not a scalpel. He felt a sense of freedom now his hands themselves were weapons, he was keen to test out their capabilities. Taking a short run up his powerful legs easily breech the gap, his claws screech and squeal on the metal wall as they bite and dig-in to arrest his decent as he slides down towards the maintenance hatch.

Pulling himself through the hatch he pauses for a time in silence, his decent had caused a lot of noise and he waited to see if anyone would investigate before pressing on...

Zar from his hiding place can see a series of shadows come racing up to the tunnel. A group of those hunchbacked wretches and the two larger forms of battle servitors one with a heavy flamer and the other a heavy bolter. Seems they were waiting in ambush.

[Continuing on]

Zar moves his way through the vent at a steady pace. Through other grates he can see more defenses as his moves further down the ship. More servitors and more of those wretched humans. He must be getting close to the Rogue Trade.

Zar follows the vent tunnel. With crimson helping guide him (the demon seems to know his void ships rather well) towards what would be the captains quarter.

Peering down through the vent into the room Zar finally sees the Rogue Trader Alekzander. The room is still in the fashion of the previous owner. Zar spots an ornate set of power armor on a stand with a double headed power ax in as case next to it.

Alekzander is scolding some of those human wretches. Something about letting someone get away... probably referring to Zar. Alekzander motions to a custom built servitor... a hulking beast (just a little smaller then a space marine) armed with a power shield and power mace. It crushes one of the wretches to the floor and the others flee in fear.

"Worthless beings." Alekzander says as he lounges back in his chair.

[Zar is hidden for now up in the vents above the captain quarters. The vent opening is near the door. The custom servitor can be jumped down upon while Alekzander is further in the room at a desk.]

Zar briefly thought about waiting as Alekzander would no doubt sleep, or perhaps the servitor left his side occasionally. Such approaches were a cowards way and he doubted he could remain silent in such a cramped space as the maintenance shaft for an extended time. Besides there was a itch he couldn't scratch that had been there since Warlords Koricks underhand tactics had put him in this predicament and one which his fight with the combat servitors hadn't satisfied.

It took little effort to get Zars blood up, with a roar he smashed through the maintenance hatch and crashed down onto the the Rogue Traders bodyguard, claws leading the way...

Zar comes in like a heat seeking missile from hell onto the bodyguard servitor. It has no chance to defend itself as Zar attacks it with abandon landing nasty blow after nasty blow. Only when Zar is tossed off by the servitor does he let up.

The servitor is damaged badly but it's still on its feet and ready to fight.

Alekzander is totally taken off guard at the intrusion and shoots up from his chair.

Bodyguard Servitor Initiative: 6

Alekzander Initiative: 12

Alekzander is quick on the draw pulling out his hellpistol and getting off a shot at Zar.

The sting of the hell pistol wasn't noticed as Zar tore into the servitor, his rage all consuming. Teeth gnashed together, smoke billowed from his flared nostrils and his eyes glowed with the fury of Khorne. Claws slashed and raked at the lobotomised slave, eager to bring it down so Crimson and Zar could spill Alekzanders blood.

Some people might had thought to try and talk to the old rogue trader, not Zar - thought and reason had been left behind in the ventilation shaft. Before the servitor had hit the floor Zar’s head snaps around at Aleksander, with blazing eyes, spittle & blood splaying from between his gnashing teeth the berserker charges…

To Alekzander Zar is just a blur as he leaps over the desk and smashes into the Rogue Trader. Zar's claws dig, rip, and tear into the hapless man. When it's all over Zar's covered in blood while Alekzander is down on the floor with deep gouges head to toe and very dead.

"He had it coming." Crimson says as he lets out a demonic laugh.

[End of Combat]

[Zar has some goodies he can take from the captains quarters. There's a suit of human power armor (Osmotic Grill, Sustainable Power Source, Auto-Senses) and a mastercrafted human power axe. The bodyguard servitor was carrying a power shield and power mace. If he wants to find other things he'll need to make an awareness +0 test.]

The calm after the storm. Zar mellows, his breathing heavy after his rage drawing in the smell of blood and viscera of the dead Rogue Trader - it was a good smell but it tagged at his rage wanting to bring it to the fore again. Shaking his head in an attempt to clear it of its anger he starts to search around, gathering up the power axe, shield, hell-pistol and anything else of interest. His eyes eventually return to the power armour, a mighty tool of war but the look of it offended Zar.

Nodding to himself as I thought came to him; he would anoint it in blood that would at least cover some of the golden shine. Using his claws alone Zar removes the head of Alekzander and places it with his other loot. Taking his skull cup from his belt made from the fallen Eldar Wych that he had slain in the arena Zar carefully drains the blood of Alekzander from his neck stump and then pours the blood over the armour while he worked he wanted to know more about his slain foe "Come on then Crimson, tell me why he had it coming?"

"Well he shot at you... well us to be more exact. I also have a little bit of history with the man as well. Once made it into the cargo hold of one his ships where I was forgotten about. Years of no blood to quench my thirst was driving me insane. My calls were finally answered though with a crew member who found me. He would eventually fall and I would trade many warriors hands before Korick imprisoned me on the planet you found me on." Crimson says in response to Zar's question.

Zar tears around the room looking for anything else of value but he finds none. His attention is drawn away from his search when the ship shakes. It shakes again and again.

Moving out the captain's quarters Zar finds a breach in the bulkhead and looks down. Before where it just looked like a collection of tied up boats is actually a full blown walled dockyard. Leman Russ turrets and towers dot the wall. There are being engaged. It takes a Zar a second to identify them but his old training kicks in. It's Tau.

A full mechanized cadre [3 Hammerheads, 4 Devilfish, 2 Sky Rays, 2 formations of Piranhas, 1 formation of Tetras, and a bunch of drones] are laying into the dockyards defenses.

Zar once had a different opinion of Tau, they were of course the enemy but one the guard feared. Their technology was impressive and their targeting precise. Zar lets out a snort from his flared nostrils in contempt - they were a cowardly race who engaged from afar, weak in body but not in mind. This offended Zar sensibilities such as they were, warped and bent in the service of Khorne and the influence of Crimson.

"It looks as though our work is not yet done this day," he says out loud "and I'd guess with the fall of Alekzander his crew will be without direction".

Zar was no leader of men but he hoped a firm application of intimidation and violence would get the wretched crew under his control. Clad in his new power armour anointed in the blood of the fallen and with Alekzander's severed head held by its hair in his left hand he makes his way downwards.

[Add human power armor (Osmotic Grill, Sustainable Power Source, Auto-Senses), a mastercrafted power axe, and a storm shield (+4 AP to the arm holding it and the body), and hell pistol to your sheet. Also you get 500 XP and +10 Infamy.]

"We're never done fighting, ever. Maybe Alekzander still has some servitors to help push the Tau back. I don't trust these wretches to do anything worthwhile for us." Crimson says.

Zar makes his way towards the dockyard. The fight isn't going well as the Tau have disabled most of the walls defenses and the Sky Ray missiles are starting to crack the wall. Zar estimates it will fall soon [about 4 combat rounds].

Making his way to the "bottom" he comes across just pure chaos. What must of once been a cargo hold is now the entrance to the dockyard. The wretches are running every which direction. Some with weapons heading to the wall while others either cower or some committing suicide. It's a sad sight to be honest.

The only thing that is calm is Zar and a mass of Servitors standing in the center of the cargo hold. They must of assembled when the fighting began. They are just standing and waiting.

[Numbers wise... there are more wretches then Zar can count. For the Servitors: 10 Battle Servitors (4 Heavy Bolters, 4 Multi-Meltas, 2 Plasma Cannons), 20 Murder Servitors, 4 Kataphron Servitors (2 Heavy Graviton Cannons, 2 Torsion Cannons).]

All the Servitors look over at him. They don't attack and resume looking forward. Looks like they're under his control.

"The armor you're wearing. Must of been the old captains. The Servitors seem to be under your command from recognizing it." Crimson says.

[So, how does Zar want to rally the wretches?]

Zar was no great tactician but even he could see there was no point in trying to hold walls any longer, better to try and draw the Tau in and remove their advantage of firepower and armour. The thought also appealed to the Crimson Servant side of him for it would be a bloody contest fought in the close quarters of the ships corridors - a contest that would please Khorne. Rallying the rabble would be the key challenge.

He steps forward and holds aloft Alekzander's severed head "Hear me!" Zar bellows at the top of his voice. "I am Zar the Crimson Servant, champion of Khorne and I will bring bloody ruin on the Tau invaders! I have taken the head of your rogue trader for he was weak and not fit to lead. You will obey me or you will die if not to the Tau then to my hand!"

Zar pauses briefly for his threat to sink in.

"Hear me!" he bellows again. "To kill the Tau we must draw them in to the ship where they are weak. Kill them in the corridors where their armour and weapons mean little. You must be strong this day and Khorne will give you favour!"

"Who is with me?!"

All the hunched men stop when Zar's voice, amplified by the vox speakers of his helmet, carries across the cargo hold.

They all listen to his words. Some shake in fear while others seem to nod their heads in agreement.

At Zar's question all of them raise a fist of weapon. Zar has won them over it seems.

===============================================================

The preparations were quick. The dockyard was abandoned in mass as the Wretches, as Zar came to learn their real name, and the smaller servitors moved into the corridors of the ship and bring the Tau in.

Deep in the halls Zar stands with two squads of Wretches. The wall had crumbled a long time ago and the only sound of fighting came from the Kataphon servitors that Zar had to leave behind in the cargo bay. They didn't last long without support.

Everything was quiet. No Tau had come further into the ship. It seems they weren't falling for that ploy.

"Look like the xenos don't want to come and play." Crimson comments.

The silence is then broken, "This is the commander of the Tau forces. Who ever is your leader I would like to meet and talk with them. This doesn't need to end in bloodshed. We are waiting in the cargo bay if you want to come and talk."

"Talk? Who does he think we are? Followers of the blood god or the silver tongued Slaanesh?" Crimson says with a growl.

Zar was disappointed when the Tau didn't come, they were here for something other than death and blood, some times he forgot that there were other motivations. It did also tell him something else, they weren't entirely comfortable in the confines of the ship - he had the upper hand here, or so he assumed.

"I'd sooner rip these Tau apart than talk to them, but aren't you intrigued what they want aboard this ship? There may be something of value to us." Zar replies to Crimson "Lets see what they are about, eh?"

Before heading to the cargo hold he turns to the nearest wretch "Gather the men and servitors, be ready to attack or defend from all entrances to the hold if I give the word, which is highly likely."

Upon reaching an entrance to the hold Zar activates the bulkhead door and steps forward staying within the threshold...

Zar takes step and is greeted with a mass of pulse rifles pointed at him from at least 20 fire warriors. Zar's not sure that even with the power armor he'd hold up from a single barrage.

Zar also spots a Hammerhead just behind the fire warriors. Its railgun pointed right at Zar.

From an immediate glance Zar picks out and interesting detail. Tau are usually well kept. However, these Tau and their armor is hardly pristine. It's worn, battered, and stained.

One of the Tau has his helmet off... must be the leader.

"I take it you're the leader?" He doesn't wait for a response, "I want to talk about an exchange of resources. Fuel and food. In return we'll give up weaponry. Honestly, we have more then we need."

The Tau were likely stuck on this world Zar mused as he regarded the state of their armour. His power armoured helm turns to the leader "That seems like an offer you could have made before knocking down our doors, yes?" he let that hang in the air before continuing "We could perhaps parley as you leave me little choice but we have little to spare. How did you come to be on this forsaken place?"

"We've learned that no one listens to words first on this forsaken place. Violence is universal though..." The leader takes a few steps forward, "We'll take whatever you have." The Tau has to think about the question, "I think you call them warp storms. Our troop ship was captured by one and then we ended up here. How about yourself?"

Zar can feel Crimson grumble within him, "These xenos smell of treachery, servant. Watch your words and actions with them."

Zar had already run out of ideas on how to out manoeuvre the Tau in verbal exchange, he should have listened to Crimson in the first place although he wasn’t about to admit that. “I grow bored of this, food indeed” Zar scoffs at Crimson in an attempt at subterfuge. Time for plan 'A'... violence and blood. He felt his heart begin to quicken at the thought of the slaughter to come.

“Much like yourselves, I was cast into the warp but by a foul sorcerer and found myself marooned on this place” that much was true, keep it simple he thought. Zar paces a little in the bulkhead entrance trying to appear in thought, his claws clasped behind his back. In the pause he gives his orders to the servitors over vox, splitting the heavies as evenly as possible to give a good distribution of firepower across the multiple entrances and the murder servitors split into three groups two to either side of the Tau and another group behind him.

He then pauses in his pacing  and turns back to the Tau leader “Very well, I have little choice but I’ll also want ammunition for the weapons, I will not be tricked." he switches back to vox "Plasmas & Meltas target the hammerhead, everything else the infantry. Confirm once in position." his orders complete he cuts his vox "Now, what exactly are you offering and err... what does your kind eat?” he asks of the Tau.

[Good plan. All the doors to your section of the ship are closed expect the one Zar is at obviously.]

"What good are weapons without the means to shoot something out of them? There will be no trickery here. The weapons along with the ammunition." The Tau commander says.

Zar gets confirmation from his servitors that they're in place and waiting.

Hammerhead:
 

The Tau commander smiles at Zar's question, "The same as you human. Your military rations or anything you've caught and cooked we will take."

Crimson growls with glee as Zar's plan is coming together. The demon can feel a fight with the Tau is near.

Zar struggled to keep his composure such was the urge to draw blood, to smell its pungent iron and to reap skulls. Crimsons blood-lust urging him on.

It was time, whether it actually was or not. It was that or charge which would only bring ruin.

"Attack my servitors." he growls over vox.

As he cuts his vox he looks behind him, backwards to the darkness beyound the bulkhead "My people, bring water and refreshments for our new friends." he barks.

As the bulkheads begin to open Zar looks to his opportunity to get into cover.

Zar backs into the doorway just as the servitors come in. The heavy bolters opening up on the fire warriors while the anti-armor weapons pound into the Hammerhead. The murder servitors rush forward under the cover of the ranged servitors attacks.

Zar just steps back behind the doorway as the Hammerhead fires it railgun at him. The round zips by, super heating the doorway and one half of Zar's power armor, and plunges into the wall of the ship making a sizeable hole.

Zar hears a large crash, probably the Hammerhead going down, and the sounds of battle erupting just around the corner of the door.

"Are you going to stand here and hide or ARE YOU GOING TO GO COLLECT SOME HEADS?" Crimson bellows.

Zar didn't need the goading of Crimson; it was time. He steps out with the murder servitors as they stream through the open bulkhead, wary of Tau weaponry he holds his newly acquired power shield at the ready. "Blood for Khorne!" he bellows as his power armoured feet pound the deck "Skulls for Khorne" he roars as he rushes forward eager for the kill...

Zar steps out into the hanger which has devolved into chaos in a matter of seconds. The Hammerhead is down and smoking. The Tau fire warriors use it for cover as they fire back at the battle servitors and murder servitors. Some murder servitors have broken through and have done immense damage to the warriors before being put down. [8 firewarriors plus the commander are the only survivors of the first attack.]

Zar follows behind a wave of 6 murder servitors using them as a shield. They all picked off but not before Zar finds cover behind some old cargo moving vehicle. He looks over at the entrance and can spot additional fire warriors (10), multiple drones (6) and a Devilfish moving in to help.

Zar peaks around the corner see the Tau Commander trying desperately to rally his men and call for support.

[Zar is now 32 meters away.]

[Zar's forces: 12 Murder Servitors, 6 Battle Servitors (2 Heavy Bolter, 3 Multi Melta, 1 Plasma Cannon) left.]

Zar paused for a few seconds, the cargo bay hauler providing solid cover against the Tau fire-warriors. His heart hammered, it would not be long before Crimsons influence caused him to loose himself to the slaughter. It was not that he fought it, he just wanted to keep his head while he might so very easily loose it to a Tau sniper. He took a quick glance around to take in the battlefield, there were Tau reinforcements on the way.

“Servitors, obey me. Plasmas and meltas target the reinforcements, priority target the Devilfish.” He angrily spat out “bolters split your fire between the two groups.”

Where were the wretches, in the service of Khorne cowardice had only one reward, there would be a toll taken.

As another group of murder servitors ran by Zar tagged onto the back of the group, still resisting the rage that bubbled underneath. While he kept his head he kept the power shield up as well, it would soon be discarded when the melee was joined.

The servitors obey Zar and reposition themselves accordingly. They do a fine job of blocking the reinforcements.

It was a faint though. The first devilfish goes down and the warriors and drones take a pounding (4 warriors and 1 drone left) but two devilfish come hovering in and light up the servitors as one drops off more fire warriors (10).

[2 Battle Servitors (1 Heavy Bolter, 1 Plasma Cannon) left.]

Zar rides the back of the second wave of Murder Servitors coming in towards the commander and his men. However, the new warriors and devilfish establish a nasty crossfire which cuts down half of the wave. Zar's shield takes on the crossfire and he follows in behind the rest of the wave.

[6 Murder Servitors left. Zar is 14 meters away from the commander and his fire warriors.]

Zar snarls in frustration as more of his forces are chewed up by the Tau, things were looking grim if the Wretches didn’t join the fray. The Crimson Servant wouldn’t back down now though that was not Khornes way, he would take the Tau Commanders head and if he fell in the attempt it’s was still blood spilt for The Blood God.

As he ran in with the murder servitors he bellowed out an order although it was likely drowned out by the cacophony of battle. “WRETCHES, The xeno filth will give you no quarter now and I shall give you none when I am done with them if I do not find you with blood on your weapons!”

Zar's blood curtailing voice and the threat of violence must of sparked something in the wretches. They come pouring out of the hatches in rivers of bodies.

They drown the Tau reinforcements in bodies and even down the remaining Devilfish.

Zar moves with the last of the Murder Servitors into charging position and the final dance of death that awaited the Tau.

[Tau reinforcements taken care of. Just Zar and the commander. The last remaining Murder Servitors can deal with the other warriors just fine.]
