La'kunas was dripping in blood. The Orkoid hordes had attacked for a day and a month, and reinforcements were few and far between. The milling squad around him took the breather to re-charge their pulse carbines, that had kept them alive for weeks. His blade was cracked and dent, stained forever with Orkoid blood. Another wave attacked. The same breathless, restless attacks were happening again. Hundreds of pouring Orks, guns drown out all noise, mighty Kans and Nobs towering over them. But this wave was different. La'kunas could feel it deep down. This wave would kill him. The numbers weren't different. It was something else.
'A Warboss, A Waagh.'
The insane Ork cries richosied across every surface, chilling La'kunas' blood more than hails of bullets. Rather than going round obstacles, they went over them. Instead of cowering at every volley, it spurred them on. Rather than a un-organised collection of bullet sprays, it was unrelenting un-organised spray. Pulse blasts cut down Ork after Ork, burning flesh and shattering bone, mocking all excuses for armour, blasting through Kans, smashing Nobs. But this was no longer enough. They got closer and the squad worried. La'kunas soon calmed them, but their fire-power was tainted by this, haphazard shots dealt little to no damage, and one Tau wandered from cover, and was shot down. La'kunas desperately ran for his carbine, but Ork bullets found him, and his shoulder flared with pain. He grabbed the carbine, and dived into cover, bullets bouncing off the ruined wall. He fired thrice, all causing another Ork to drop. But then they closed. La'kunas cut the first clean in half, but after this there was no time for fancy tricks like that. The second was decapitated in one clean blow, with force that left La'kunas shivering. The third was brutally disembowelled, the only strike left following a duck to avoid a rusty choppa. From then on La'kunas was always surrounded. A spinning cut, followed by 2 point-blank pulse blasts sent four Orks over, and a precise stab into a Kan's workings caused it to begin to explode, and La'kunas jumped out the way as two Orks flew, burning, overhead. Then the warboss strided up. La'kunas was too slow. The Ork's Klaw was too fast. The whole of La'kunas' chest was ripped out and he died in agony....
