Default For The Hive! (action)

Read the Final Rules Post of the recruitment thread before you begin.



The Imperium af Man may have won what they considered a victory, but an alien foe such as the tyranid was not one to be underestimated. Even though Tarsis Ultra had been saved from the full fury of the Hive Fleet, the warriors of the Great Devourer were far from vanquished...


A lone tyranid warrior limped back to the hidden caverns where it had taken to resting. For many months now, it had taken to preying on the nearby villages alongside its broodmates, slowly returning stocks of biomass to their mother, the last surviving Dominatrix on the planet.

The Mother`s survival was crucial if the Hive was ever to be restored. At the moment, their numbers were dangerously low, made even worse by the loss of the Warrior`s brood. Its spinefists hung limply at its side and It only carried one of its two boneswords. The other had been lost...

It entered the caves cautiously, giving a glance over its shoulder to ensure it had not been followed. It did not see anything, so continued.

Entering the presence of The Mother, it conveyed its disappointment at the result of their most recent foray.

!!! Alarm suddenly crossed their minds, The Dominatrix roared in fury as the interlopers began to file into the cave. The humans shouled in their panicky voices, hefting weapons and preparing to aim at the Queen of the fledgling Hive.

With no choice, The Mother released a psionic impulse, awakening the latest batch of eggs laid. They were warriors, and their screeches could be heard as they clawed their way free.

The First Warrior sprang into action, knowing that to delay was to risk damage to Mother. It roared as it charged, swinging it remaining bonesword and decapitating the nearest human soldier before turning back momentarily to check up on the hatchlings. It knew that each of them was instantly self aware, but at the same time, the influence of the synapse web was only as strong as their presence on the world.

With only one Dominatrix on the planet, and wounded as she was, the newborns would be largely autonomous...

First could only assume that their instincts would serve them well...

All: You are newly hatched. You are completely aware of your motor skills and abilities. But at first you have no thoughts as to your purpose. Your only clues as to your first actions are the large creature behind you, to whom you feel an affinity, and the attacking humans before you, who you feel instinctive enmity towards.

One of your brood kin is under attack. Your first act will go a long way towards establishing your developing persona.

There are about two dozen human attackers. Your kill limit is five, or less.

The dark world that surrounded him suddenly lit up, and second became aware of his body unfolding and felt as if he knew it like an athlete knows its muscles. He crawed from the eggg and stood up, opening his eyes for the first time. He saw a large tyranid standing in the center, roaring. Another darted towards a group of other creatures and started ripping them apart.

Suddenly he felt a impulse of anger and violence in his mind, one so powerful he felt as if his only option was to obey. He launched himself up onto the wall, then used his legs to propel himself across and decapitated one of the aliens. He landed on the other side of the way and simultaniously launched himself again, decapitating another creature. He then landed on the floor and stood in front of the larger creature from which the impusles were eminating from. As other tyranid sprung foward and killed the invaders, Second felt a impluse of pleasure at there slaughter.

Apon he rude awakening, forth eyed the surroundings, and felt a link between all the creatures around it except for 8, rowdy and, in his mind, enemys. He looked at the closest one and used his lash whip and grappled him. Then he flung him into the second closest enemy and killed them both and fired his devouror into a third.

Third, bursting forth from the flimsy shell casing of the egg, charged headlong into the fray, screeching with animalistic fury as two bursts were realeased from the multibarrels of the twin Spinefists. The PDF soldiers clutched their seeping chests as they fell to their knees, defeated.

Bullets fired from multiple Stub Rifles bounced ineffectively off the still-developing carapace of the beast. Screaming again, Third rammed its Scything Talons into the chest of a screaming Soldier, before sinking its needle-like fangs into the feeble neck of the dying man.

Edit: Wow, I really did say Forth didn't I?


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

Fifth awoke and tore its way from the cocoon, a rising shriek of fury emerging with it; the Tyranid Warrior reached out with its mind, locating five similar to it and more that were not. It could detect panic and hostility and fired its Devourer at one of the humans; the living ammunition tore through the humans armour and burrowed into the flesh, expending themselves in a vicious frenzy of biting and tearing.

Fifth advanced, claws reaching out to grasp and rend another intruder, before it launched itself into the fray, committing its full attention to butchering the humans

(ooc:Destroyerhive, you used my name in the second part, and warp spawn, there are 6 of us, not 5)

Fourth looked around at his brethren fighting, not being noticed by the 12 last PDF, He made his way to the humans and grappled one of the pdf's guns. The man panicked and pulled the trigger and shot one of his freinds in the head, and fourth then pulled it out of his hands, then using it's bayonet as a spiked end and rammed the knife through the now unarmed human and found a cranny in the wall and took up a tactical position.

Sixth charged out into a group of human warriors, swinging his talons wildly, he felt a close affinity to the other six creatures in the cavern, he smelt the air and he smelt blood, it was a strage sensation, yet he felt no different, he had not been designed to have emotions or feelings, only for leading and fighting. He sliced the head off one human without any feeling of release or joy in killing and continued on swinging his talons, a trooper brought his rifle up to protect him from the tallon, but this left him open, so Sixth opened fire with his devourer on the human, pumping him full of larve into his stomach.
He took no account of the other Tyranids around him, they were but fellow hatchlings.

I'm a major fan of Winston Churchill and Walter Tompson (his bodyguard.) So that is why my avatar is of Winson and Walter. No I'm not wierd, I'm not stupid, I'm just Snowy.

ooc: The part of Second will be controlled by me until the position is filled.
@Tolisk: Try to limit yourself to one post per update.


--- --- ---


First was somewhat satisfied to note that the hatchlings had performed quite well so far. Turning his focus back to the human interlopers, he snapped in irritation as a las round impacted his torso. Lifting a spinefist as he advanced, he hissed in contempt as the fluid build up reached the critical level needed to fire.
With a bioelectric impulse to his weapon symbiote, he released the valve on his weapon and watched as the hapless prey were scythed down.

Roaring with abandon, he launched himself into the foe, the others seeming to learn from his example.

The Third, Fifth and Sixth born were slaughtering to a very satisfactory level. The Fourth born was showing a pleasing degree of cunning and survival instinct, sheltering in a nearby cranny and firing upon the prey from afar.

All in all, First was quite satisfied that his new brood would excssd expectations. The humans were slaughtered in short order, and the creatures fed...

Some tiime later...

The brood had left the caverns, it was unlikely that the group of humans that found them would be the only ones in the area. The six warriors had begun a search of the area. In the time since their birth, First had established a telepathic connection with each of them, and for the most part they each understood their importance. One fact stood above all else in their minds...

The Hive is all that matters...

First suddenly dropped low, and the rest of the group did likewise. Echoing through the dense rocky terrain, voices could be heard. More of the humans had come to search the area.

First growled softly as he peered over the nearest ledge, his brood hissing agitated just behind him. He impressed upon them once more the need for their immediate survival. For the moment at least, their lives were of too much value to simply charge with reckless abandon.

First formulated a plan quickly with his experienced mind. Relaying commands and maintaining an instinctive telepathic bond to his brood, He began to orchestrate death to the two human squads below...


--- --- ---


THIRD: You have become one towards violent tendencies, even for a tyranid. Your purpose is to outflank the humans and attack them from behind.

FOURTH: Your first developments placed an emphasis on self preservation. First has tasked you with raining fire support from your current elevated position. Second will help you. You have permission to control Second for this post.

FIFTH: Your task is to accompany Third and join in the attack from behind.

SIXTH: You will join First in attacking from the front, as you have been deemed the most suitable for this role.

All take note, two of the humans are equipped with plasma guns. They are central to the two squads formations and will choose to target Fouth and Sixth. Their squadmates will protect them zealously.

With a roar, First leaped down from his outcrop and landed heavily before the startled humans. In his mind, he felt the movements of his broodmates as they moved to fulfill their roles. Central to the humans formation, he recognised two of the weapons as being especially dangerous, and relayed the impulse to his kin, designating these two humans as priority targets.

Seeking to minimise the prey`s chances to fire, First broke into a sprint just as he heard Sixth land lightly behind him. Lasbolts left scorch marks across his torso, some even penetrating his carapace to inflict superficial damage, but no human could place the shot that would fell him at such abrupt notice. He impacted heavily, his bonesword crackling to life as he cleaved the first human in two and delivered a backhanded blow to another with his other, empty hand.

First was aware of his fellows joining the fray, relishing the terrified screams of the doomed humans as a hunter relishes the death knells of its captured prey...

Fourth, thinking what stratagy to use, decided to use his devouror, and he sniped a granade pin in the plasma gunner of the squad furthest away, killing 3 in the process and the gunner himself.Surprised with his aim, he sent feelings of pleasure across thier link.

In the mean while, second sweeped his deathspitter across the second squad managing a stray shot nabbing the first plasma gunner, hitting his weapon and causing it to malfunction and killing 2 others.
