So our GM has sent our party of 9 through half a dozen missions so far, featuring all the horrible gribblies and monsters of the darkest pits of hell and that one cultist who blew himself up on his own mine. and we were feeling pretty sure of our selves. (Well like 7 of us were, since our ravenguard techmarine got himself killed whilst berserk-charging a dreadnought, and my spacewolf scout could be killed by a slight breeze or fart)
We’d just got back from cleansing a space station of a chaos virus spread unwittingly by us, and were immediately sent on a mission to a Tau Sept world to “Wreck shit and cause mayhem. Oh yeah, and kidnap some ethereals.” Pretty simple. Our objectives were to kidnap at least 1 of the 5 ethereals and kill the rest and damage as much of their infrastructure as possible. It seemed like a perfectly simple mission, however we hadn’t counted on one thing.
When we landed on the Tau world we were immediately faced by what i considered to be the most horrific thing ever:
Tau Children playing with human children. Filthy buggers. For some reason half the team wanted to protect them and the other half wanted to burn them. So like all good space marines our Flesh Tearer tried to nom on one. Almost succeeded too, we had to keep him locked up until the time when we would strike.
We decided to nab the ethereals on the night of a festival, when security would be minimal. Most of it went well. Our Librarian actually strode into one ethereal’s home bold as brass, drugged the hell out of him and then walked out again. (There was a minor hiccup with one of them which involved a major car chase and a tracking role with 16 degrees of success but that is a story for another time.) And then we decided it was time to go damage some proper infrastructure. I and the rest of the party had stocked up on a literal ton of demolition charges, thing was, most of the party didn’t want to harm civilians. God knows why. There were deals made and lots of deliberation and we finally agreed that we wouldnt blow up any civilians. The three of us that were willing to destroy civilians were sent to create a distraction whilst the others assaulted the nearby army barracks.
When the Tau forces gathered to stop us three they found us atop a pile of burning corpses. We had kept our word; not a single Tau had been killed by explosives.
Logan grimnar. Space wolf leader. I didn’t do the greatest for him but I felt as if my has all needed their own paint job. I am going to do touch ups later but for now glowing eyes and an axe I’m happy with
A grey Knight hammer hand riding a thunder wolf. Sounds like the most fucked up thing I could make. And that’s what I did. So this is the final version of it. Pics of the terrane and all sides here in a moment.
