That was fast, I thought threads would have to be up for a week or so before getting any kind of response. Anywho, onto question answering!
How is that even possible? DDid the ships geller field fail and allow the denizens of the warp to wreak havoc on the ship? And is it the warp engines or regular engines that were damaged or both? Because if the warp engines were damaged then how did the ship make it back to realspace?
The power generators for the geller field were blown up, probably thanks to a heretic Guardsman planting a few Melta-Bombs.
The normal engines were damaged and the remaining crew pulled out of the Warp before the other engines were destroyed, and then the power genys were wrecked from forces I'd rather keep secret for the time being.
You don't need much more after this honestly, assuming you mean beyond the light of the astronomicon (it fits with what your going for since Imperial ships are hard pressed to navigate without that.)
I was trying to increase the overall size of the story part of the post, seemed a little small to me.
Why? Ships go missing or suffer a terrible fate that renders them hulks fairly often, its a big galaxy after all. Its just another dead ship ripe for looting or a good scrap.
True, but I was just trying to give incentive for the Boss to send a squad over.
Ships in 40k are quite large, in fact everything is. It wouldn't be all to surprising if you were able to drive a tank down the central spine corridor of a cruiser
Didn't know that, well I did but I didn't think tanks would be able to fit in anything other than the hanger.
Yeah..you do understand how vague the size of a paragraph is right? Are you looking for four sentences (the minimum allowed in this sub forum regardless), five, ten, or twenty?
Just a bit of a nit pick, its shoota not shotta
I'll edit to be more precise, and the site where I got the weapons list from called them, ''Shottas'' I'll edit.
This is assuming Orks can count, and then that such a concept as age actually matters (which it doesn't to Orks.) I'd suggest just removing it.
