Sixth screeched as he saw the human with the strange weapon, it was a fire-maker.
He jumped forward and unloaded his devourer at the human, it dodged the projectiles only in time to see Sixth running at it, his head down and his Talons raised in a slicing stance.
The Human jumped back from Sixth attack and triggered the machine, a flamer stuttered out of it and enveloped Six's arm.
Six screamed as he felt his arm burning, he pulled it out of the fire. It was pink in colour, the flesh having been partly burned off.
Six jumped at teh humand and sliced its arm off with his talon before driving his other talon at the human.
As soon as the talon hit the flesh six felt pain drive up his arm.
Six yelped and the human jumped away and fumbled for a knife. Six jumped forward and sliced the humans ankle in half with his good talon, before pumping him full of devourer bettles.
Six then screeched and moved on, trying to keep his burnt arm out of anyones sight. If they saw that Sixth had been injured they would target Six.

First screeched in triumph as the last human died to a salvo of spines from his weapon symbiotes. Turning with a sense of urgency, he summoned Fifth from where the warrior had concealed itself. First noted with satisfaction that Fifth had enough sense to identify the prey`s leader.

Taking a moment to observe the rest of the brood, First growled softly in annoyance. There were more injuries than he would have liked. Third had suffered a damaged limb from a grenade blast rendering one of his spinefists useless. Second was similarly maimed, having lost his left rending claw hand a portion of his tail. Sixth had been burned heavily by a flame weapon, losing the use of a scything talon.

These wounds would all heal, but not soon, leaving the brood vulnerable for a time. Taking possession of the human captive from the confused Fifth, First begun to share with them his plan...

As the sun begins to set...

The human was unconsciouss thanks to a recent blow from First`s unarmed fist. Even a tyranid could only tolerate the incessant babbling of a prisoner for so long...

They had been running for some time now, three of them. Followed by Fifth, First was taking the human to a nearby human settlement that it was aware of. The remaining four warriors had been left as sentinels, just in case more humans showed up back at the caves. First had yet to develop a complete trust in their abilities, but assured himself that Mother would guide them should the need become dire enough.

Keeping to the shadows, First dumped the sleeping human unceremoniously between two humans. Now came the part he would relish.

The humans were generally active by day, resting at night. When the sun went down, they would have an oppurtunity to take advantage of the lax attention spans. Soon they would feed...


Back at the cave network...

Second, Third, Fourth and Sixth had been left to guard the caves. The injuries sustained by Second and Third had been particularly detrimental, and following a quick feeding frenzy of the human interlopers, First had commanded that they remain inactive to maximise their regenerative abilities. Sixth likewise had been commanded to rest, as well as a sequence of chastising thoughts from First regarding the dangers of attacking a fire wielding enemy up close...

Fourth, being relatively unharmed, had also been left behind to act as a sentry. His keen eyes cut through the darkness, easily seeing further than any lesser creature would.

A low growl rose from the creature. He did not like what he saw...

Three metal beasts approached, much smaller and each only bearing two wheels and a single rider. But they could not possibly be human? Fourth growled again uneasily, his mind connecting to his fellows. These humans were much bigger, almost as high as the tyranids themselves, and looked to be covered in metal. Their metal skin was black, and even their weapons looked far more fearsome than those the weakling humans had carried.

The voice of Mother suddenly filled his mind, these creatures were dangerous and must be slain at any cost.


--- --- ---

Second: Upon receiving the mental warning from Fourth, Mother immediately begins to accelerate the spawning process. You must make a choice, do you risk engaging the humans to buy her time? Or do you stay put in the cave, hiding and hoping you will regenerate in time? If you choose to engage in your injured state, you risk death. If you hide, your injuries will heal, but you will NOT fight.

Third: You were not resting in the cave network, instead sheltering in a small rocky alcove near Fourth. When alerted of the Space Marine`s arrival, you feel aggression. Will you attempt to fight at range (remembering you only have ONE effective spinefist), or try to best them in melee? These are Mortifactor Marines. Depending on whether you or Fourth post first, you may need to support each other.

Fourth: Following her initial expression of danger, Mother`s voice has gone silent, leaving you to act of your own volition. Engage the marines with caution, preferrably from long range. Depending on whether you or Third post first, you may need to support each other. Don`t be afraid to ask one another for help.

Fifth: You`ve accompanied First to a small village. Having dumped the human officer somewhere for reasons still unknown to you, First now commands you to begin harvesting biomass. Start killing, but remain unseen and unheard. Civilians are an optimal target, as they won`t cause injury or alarm, but you may still be tempted to attack a PDF soldier here or there.

Sixth: Regardless of Second`s decision, you will stay in the caves. Your arm has begun to heal, but more importantly, Mother demands your assistance. A steady stream of small egg pods has begun to stream from her lower sections, and you must relocate them to a more hidden position within the caves. If Second chooses to stay in the caves, you can leave a dozen or so with him.

All: Nobody has permission to kill the Mortifactor Marines yet. If you engage, you will stay engaged until the next update.

Sixth scuttled over to the Mother and picked up a few of the eggs, six then hurried over to a corner of the cave and placed the eggs down, six then ran back over and grabbed another few, and kept on doing so.
He then heard the enemy approach and as he finished placing a group of eggs six risked a look around the corner.
They were approaching on a metal beast and they were bigger than humans, nearly as tall as himself.
His natural instinct was to run out and fight the enemies. But the Mother commanded him to stay in the cave.
And so Six continued to transfer the eggs from the Mother to the corner of the cave.

Third, counter-charging the speeding monsters, leapt into the air, taking multiple wounds from explosive ammunition. Had it not been for the iron will of the Hive Mind, Third would have fell from the sky dead.

Third landed on top of a warrior , slashing furiously at the soldier's back screaming savagely to distract the enemy with fear. But the armoured man did not flee. He roared with a metallic tone "die xenos filth!" as he rammed a giant gun into Third's chest and fired.

Third flew off the speeding beast, crashing on the ground but still alive.

Second felt the sudden impulse of alarm and felt these new metal beatss were enemies, to be eliminated at any costs. Second, however, knew that in his current state he would simply be useless to hius brood. So he did what most tyranids would never do, hide.

Second jumped up on his power rear legs and launched himself into an alcove higher up in the cave. He settled down, letting his body return to the regenerative task and waiting for the prey to come to him.

Not an update, just adding to the story so far.

--- --- ---


The Mortifactors responded to the surprise attacks of the tyranids as only an astartes could. They fought.

Thrown from their bikes by a well placed lashwhip, two of the marines were floored, their bikes spiralling uselessly into the nearby clump of trees near the edge of the cliff network. The third marine veered just in time, leaping from the bike to attack Fourth, chainsword buzzing. Fourth opened fire with the devourer, giving the marine pause momentarily, but the astartes would not be stayed, and continued to press the attack whenever oppurtunity presented itself.

At the same time, Third ran screeching from his resting place and leaped into the fray. Soaring down from the rocks above, He was littered with shots from the two fallen marines, only the iron resolve of Mother behind his own kept the warrior`s mind from fading. Third landed heavily on one of the marines, pushing him back to the ground. The human fought back, throwing the tyranid through the air. Third hissed with defiance as the marine advanced, intent on finishing the creature.

The two tyranid warriors fought with what could have been valour. But Mother could feel their inexperience, their misplaced eagerness to defend her. With little time remaining, she made a few genetic modifications to the last of her eggs. And that was all. For now, her biomass reserves were depleted...

- - -

Second, from his hiding place, had healed rapidly. As Sixth clustered the eggs nearby, the two of them began to sense the emerging presence of more minds in their midst.

But would it be soon enough? The two warriors began to grow restless, this feeling of helplessness was one they were ill equipped to deal with...

As the mortificer attacked with his chainsword, fourth wraped his lash whip around the attacking metal man, catching him off guard and hurled him into a group of jagged rocks while fireing at the other metal men

Third, hadn't intended to be preyed upon, as the role of hunter was his. With lighting quick motions, he stabbed his scything talons into the ground and threw himself upright. He charged towards the armoured foe, ducking and doging as he ran, hearing the whistle as projectiles shot past his ears (or holes, as it were :)).

The enemy reached down to retrieve a long object attached to his waist, but Third was too quick. Third pounced upon the foe, firing the Spinefist at point blank range, while grappling on with his hooves and Talons. The prey stuttered from the blow, and lost balance, his shrivelled back falling into the painful embrace of Third's Scything Talons. The armour finally gave way and killed the creature within. Third, leaning on top of the man, sheathed his Scything Talons into the victim and howled with pride.

Fifth felt an impulse of pleasure, it no longer had the human whining incessantly, First had taken it somewhere and out of sight was out of mind for Fifth, at least for a non-threat.

The Warrior skulked in the shadows, the human dwellings had warmth radiating from them and it could sense living humans inside them, although why the prey-creatures would waste such a perfect dark night sleeping instead of hunting was beyond the Tyranids comprehension; for now.

It lurked outside a brightly lit dwelling, inside it could here humans talking and laughing, the smell coming from inside was odd, it jerked back into shadows as a door opened and a pair of humans stumbled out.
Fifth watched them with interest, they seemed aimless; as though they were bound to a synapse creature and it had been destroyed. Odd.
It mattered not however, Fifth watched as they entered a dark alleyway and stalked after them, it took them quickly and quietly, two lives snuffed out in a flurry of claws; the Warrior had the presence of mind to scoop snow onto the blood, covering it from sight.

Fifth then gathered the two bodies and headed to the town outskirts, there it secreted them in some spiny plants to hide them and went back to continue its task; it hesitated, feeling the emotions of its brothers plight and felt an instinctive impulse to go and protect them and Mother; but Fifth shook the feeling off, it had a task and would follow it through.

Fifth took out another unarmed human just as silently as it had killed the drunks, returning to the spot to hide the kills before continuing with the harvest, it judged that it had slain seven humans and hidden their mostly whole bodies and it sent a querying thought to First, were more needed or could Fifth return?

Second was almost healed now, he could feel it, the lost limbs regrowing at an accelerated rate. However, Second felt despair, for he new that these news enemies were alot more dangerous than those metal beats they had encountered earlier. Second sat in its hiding place, waiting for further orders.

00c: DestroyerHive, you did NOT have permission to kill one of the astartes. :nono:


First came back to where it had left Fifth to hunt humans. Dropping five slain corpses, it waited a short while. Soon after, Fifth returned, carrying several more slain humans, bringing the total between them to twelve. Instantly realizing that they would be hard pressed to carry so much between them, First directed Fifth to feed and did likewise.

- - -

Back at the cliffs, Third and Fourth had fought ferociously, but it was a losing battle. The space marines had proven too resilient and skilled for the inexperienced tyranids, and it seemed that the young warriors were doomed to die...
But inside the caves, the eggs had begun to hatch. The humans knew these creatures as Hormagaunts, but to the tyranids they were simply more kindred. Second and Sixth began to feel an instinctual mental link between the creatures, quickly learning that the simple creatures had little in the way of sentience. Furthermore, their weak minds were easily dominated, allowing the superior creatures to control the smaller, more expendable drones...

Cries of distress echoed from outside, and Second and Sixth realized that their time was limited. With Hormagaunts in tow, the two Warriors ran outside to aid their bretheren...

- - -

First and Fifth had fed heavily, and now carried half of the original number of humans they had slain. It mattered little, for the biomass could be surrendered to Mother at will and remade into a fresh, rejuvenated vessel. Such a practice was not without risk however, for only a strong mind could maintain itself within the Hive collective long enough to take a new form. First had grown much since the Hive had come to this world, but was not yet confident in his ability to reincarnate his mind in new flesh. After all, even some of the fearsome Overlords of the Hive had been known to fail and die a true death on occasion...

No, First resolved to fight for as long as he was able before surrendering his vessel to Mother. Perhaps his new found sense of self awareness had given him a strange attachment to life, or perhaps it was the will of Mother, but regardless, he found himself unwilling to accept death.

Halfway back to the cliffs, the two warriors heard a keening mental call from Mother. The brood had come under attack, and even now Third and Fourth were close to death! Roaring in urgency, First broke into a faster run, Fifth hissing as he increased his pace to match.

A flash to the left caught Fifth`s attention. First, sensing Fifth`s concern, slowed his pace and turned to see what the other tyranid was looking at.

A searing lasbolt cut through the air and impacted First`s head. A section of carapace exploded from behind the warrior`s cranium as the sniper`s round hit its mark. First dropped to the ground and was still, leaving Fifth momentarily stunned...


--- --- ---

Second: Mother has given you control of a brood of Hormagaunts. Ten of the creatures await your command. Lead them outside and use them to kill the Mortifactor attacking Fourth. You will struggle even with the gaunt`s help. Focus your attention on ONE of the space marines.

Third: The space marine you thought you had killed :)nono:) rises up before you and primes his boltgun through ragged breaths. To remain inactive is certain death. You notice Fourth coming to your aid. Keep the marine distracted so that Fourth can ambush him. Retreat, but keep the marine`s attention on you.

Fourth: Having been rescued by Second and a brood of Hormagaunts, you rush to help Third, who is in dire need of assistance. A lashwhip from behind should do the trick. Third has softened him up a bit.

Fifth: With First down, you must act quickly. A scouting team has spotted you, but fortunately you noticed their position, concealed in a clump of nearby trees in the middle of the savannah. Five humans should not be a problem, so long as you can avoid being hit. The sniper will be helpless once you reach them, but one of his squadmates has a power sword. Be careful. These are an IG special weapon team, not marines scouts.

Sixth: Third and Fourth are attacking one Mortifactor, Second is attacking another, leaving the last one to you. You also have a brood of ten Hormagaunts at your disposal. This Marine has a grenade already in his hand when you attack. Remembering what happened earlier to Third, you may want to let the gaunts do most of the work, just in case...

EDIT: You can kill the marines now.

Would this apply to second as well? :victory:

Also, Emporershand89, I don't know if you read the recruitment thread, but I am truly sorry about what I said. I didn't know how mean I can sound...:(

Now, on to the game...

***************************************************************************************************

Third got up from his resting place on the ground, near the enemy. The strange images of the fight faded from its head as reality took over once more. Realizing his grievous wounds, Third hissed menacingly at the metal man, before darting off on all fours, forming a wide circle around the prey. What he had to do next was not certain, but he would not be able to kill the enemy in one fell swipe; no, this one had a much harder carapace than the others.

Third's head pounded lightly, as he received a synaptic signal from Fourth. Grinning with what could have been contempt, Third kept the enemy distracted while the hulking form of Fourth approached from the south.

Fourth, sneaking from behind, lashwhip'ed the metal man and started smashing him into obsticals and when he was down, started frieing into him with his devouror. Feeling contempt, he started moving to the shadows again.

Second was about to rejoin the fray when he suddenly a wierd sensation in the back of his mind. Something had crawled in there, something stronger than his own will; and it tingled as it crwaled into his mind and implanted itself in there. Suddenly he realised that many other minds were connected to his. He noticed a group of newborns apparoach him and look at him like a son looks to his father.

It was then he felt an impusle; Lead them and destroy the armored invaders child.. This was a different impulse, almost a voice of screeches in his head. However, the will was strong, and he turned and commanded the group to follow him outside the cave to where the enemy was.

The warrior stood at the edge of the cave, sepearated from its fellow warriors and was moving deeper into the cave, its snout tracking back and forth; seeking targets. Second had his hormogaunts wait in an aclove until the warrior was right upon them. Then he ordered them to attack, and they jumped out at his command, eager to feast upon this creatures flesh.

However, the warrior was not stupid, and easily cut down three hormogaunts before they clsed on him. Then it went to work with a detachable claw that cut left and right, and glowed with a humming noise. Before Second new it, only two hormogaunts were left, with him staring the warrior down face to face. The warrior, on his part, had his left arm limp and his larger claw was gone, replaced by a small one which he wielded in his remaining paw. The metal warrior charged at them, baying a fierce cry that resounded throughout the cavern, and barreled into the hormogaunt on Seconds left faster than he thought it would. It easily dispatch it, but not before the last one jumped on its back and torn open its armor, cutting it multiple times on its back.

It roared in rage and tore the hormogaunt off it, using its own wieght and swinging it into the wall; crushing its head in the process. Second saw its chance, and sprung at an angle, firing its deathspitter into the exposed back. The live ammo landed into the back of the warrior and immediatly began cosuming its spine and muscle fiber like a virus consuming blood cells. The warrior screamed in agony and turned; somehow still filled with rage. It charged...............and stumbled, its legs giving out as the deathspitter beatles started to devour its spine, paralysing it, and head for the pulsing heart.

Second bounced off the wall, and walked over to where it was spasming on the floor. Second could smell its death appraoching, and relished some possible meat to eat for dinner. He hunched over it, growling in its face as it seemed to grimace and look at him.

"Die you fucking, filthy xenos," and with all its strength threw the knife into seconds side. Second roared with pain, feeling the metal claw pierce his chitin armor and reach into his lungs. His body immediatly closed it off and began to stem the blood flow but the damage was done. the pain wracked Second and he fell to his kness, the impulse of danger running through his mind. He turn to the creature, and turned and pull the claw out with his teeth. He then limped over, his breath ragged as purple blood drooled from his mouth. He looked this thing in the eye, the bit into its head and tore it from its shoulders.

Releasing it, he stood back and with all the air left let a raor of victory come forth, its sound echoing off the cave wall and into the abise beyond. He felt a sudden impusle, one of rest, and Second turned an started to limp back into the cave, again seeking an aclove in which to heal his now flooded lung.

Sixth roared as he saw the strange metal man walk towards him, a spherical object in its hand.
He sent the Hormaguants forward. They screeched and jumped. Just as they were about to start the final charge towards the "Marine" the spherical object flew out of his hand and landed amidst the ranks of the Hormaguants. Luckily their natural instincts told them to avoid it, otherwise all ten of them would have died.
The Hormaguants were now down to five and set upon the "Marine"
The opponent expertly dispatched them but was left open for a hit from Six, who severed the "Marines" arm from its body.
The "Marine" roared as it swung at Six. The blade struck but it only scraped the armour away from Sixs shoulder.
Six brought his talons around and decapitated the marines head.

Fifth let out a startled screech, momentarily stunned by the speed at which First had been cut down, it shook itself out of the daze and crouched low to the ground, it had tracked where the shot had come from; it bared its dagger-like fangs; it would tear them apart.

It ran at them, staying low to the ground and moving in a zigzag pattern to avoid further las-fire, Fifth flexed its claws in anticipation as it reached the hidden sniper; with a guttural roar of anger the Tyranid seized the human and threw him against a tree, snapping his spine.

It heard an odd humming noise as it dealt with another human, slaying this one with a blast from Fifth’s devourer, it turned and eyed a human rushing towards it, a sword, the source of the irritating noise, raised to slay Fifth.
The Warrior jumped back, avoiding the first swing, which still managed to carve a light furrow in its thorax armour, and opened fire with the devourer, the hail of bio-ammunition forcing the human to dive behind cover.

Fifth took advantage of this to finish off the remaining two Guardsmen, tearing one to pieces and cutting the other down in a barrage of fleshworms, the other threats removed Fifth turned back to deal with the remaining human; all in all its confrontation and subsequent slaying of the majority of the Guardsmen had taken three minutes.

And now only one remained; the human let out an angry cry and charged Fifth, who tilted its head, usually prey fled from a full-grown Tyranid Warrior, not towards. Nevertheless it would reward this defiant human with death, Fifth darted forward, its fast reflexes allowing it to grab the mans arm in mid-swing in an iron grip, preventing the human from pulling away or pushing forward, it drew back its free arm to deliver the killing blow as the human scrabbled at a holster with his free hand.
The human was only marginally faster, as Fifth was tired from his earlier exertions, the humans weapon was a laspistol and he fired without aiming, a lucky shot taking Fifth in the eye.

The Tyranid shrieked and instinctively tightened its grip, feeling bone grind and snap in its grasp, while knocking the pistol from the human’s hand; half-blinded and bleeding from multiple small wounds, Fifth glared at the human for a moment before lunging forward, jaws enclosing the humans head, it bit down, savouring the muffled scream and the crunch as the human perished.

The scouting group dealt with Fifth dropped the body and cautiously approached First’s body, a thin mewling noise arising from its throat; it could feel that its fellow Brood-mates were in a battle and felt an impulse to join them, but Fifth wished to see if First lived. If it did not then Fifth would take the body back to Mother for re-absorption.

Your characters are beginning to establish a sense of self.

First gasped suddenly, it`s remaining eye bulging open as it suddenly awakened. He was dimly aware of a sharp diminish in his senses, one of his eyes was gone and he was also missing a portion of his head and with it, one of his eardrums.

He tried to stand, pain wracking his nerves. His advanced physiology dulled the agony almost immediately, and he raised himself upright, willingly oblivious to his ruined head. He turned and looked at Fifth. His fellow warrior had easily slain the human ambushers, suffering a few minor cuts and a burnt eye. A pang of jelousy bit at Fist`s mind, knowing that Fifth`s wounds would heal while his own were far more severe, and likely permanent.

Something else came to him. Was that...Concern? Pity?! From Fifth?! First growled in low fury in seeing how the other tyranid had looked down on him, but First was too weak to fight. With a hiss of disdain, Fifth scooped up several of the human corpses and continued, abandoning First to his own defence. If First was to recover, he would have to do it on his own, for Mother had a far greater need of Fifth and the captured biomass than to coddle a weakened warrior...

First let out a roar of defiant hatred before crawling into the tree cluster. He fed quickly, and began to rest.

- - -

Victorious screeches rang out through the rocky cliffs as the tyranids sated their hunger. No further intruders had come, and when Fifth returned several hours later, it was to a fledgling Hive that had grown in number and resolve.

There was no sadness at the loss of First, they simply accepted it as part of the Hive`s existence. Those that were weak died, those that were strong prevailed.

Mother urged them that it was time to become more audacious in their attacks. It was time to begin their assault in earnest. With a roar of eager battle lust, the five warriors led several broods of a few dozen hormagaunts and a few dozen termagaunts, all ready to serve the Hive.

They ran, using the cover of night to hide their movements. The first town lay only a short distance ahead to the south as the first rays of dawn crested the horizon.


--- --- ---


All: You are attacking a small farming village. THERE IS NO MILITARY PRESENCE HERE (yet). Some of the farmers will attempt to fight back using small firearms and farm tools. Leave no survivors, men women or children. Feed on them all!

Second: A small farming village lies ahead. Use your Deathspitter and raze the unarmoured houses to the ground to drive the unsuspecting prey from their hiding holes. You have Seven termagaunts to provide close aid should you be attacked.

Third: Lead a brood of ten Hormagaunts deep into the heart of the settlement. Make no effort to hide yourself, fear is your ally!

Fourth: Cut swiftly along the western flank. Make sure no human manages to flee. Ten termagaunts will aid you.

Fifth: Your goal is ultimately to assume leadership of this brood, but Third is stealing the thunder with his direct assault. The best way to outshine him is to slay the leader beast of this nest. You have control of eight Hormagaunts. The town leader is a former guardsman officer. He uses a powerfist and is quite good with it. The other villagers take heart at his presence, so kill him quickly.

Sixth: You notice a group of metal transport beasts near the far edge of the settlement. Several humans are attempting an escape. Gun them down and destroy these unarmoured vessels to prevent any further escape attempts. You have nine termagaunts.One of the vehicles has a heavy stubber attached.


Sorry to be so brief, stay with me though, big things are coming. A nice easy post now while I get the next one ready. :biggrin:

Third felt a blue sense overcome him. Was it disapointment? He was disapointed that no one was firing at him. He loved the bloodlust; he wanted to kill. Third felt his head throb as he sent synaptic signals to the Hormogaunts near him; they were not as powerful as he, but their speed and decent assault abilities made them a worthy ally. Third charged into the village, Hormogaunts at te front. No matter how fast Third ran, the Hormogaunts were quicker. He allowed them to leave his synaptic range for the moment; let them have fun.

Third followed the Hormogaunts into the heart of the city. Most of the lesser prey took refuge in their lairs, but some still remained foolishly outdoors, and were scythed down by the blood-thirsty Hormogaunts. Third payed no attention to these distractions - he wanted to cause fear and terror.

Third smashed through a barricaded wooden door with ease. He screamed at the old man sitting on a rocking chair at the end of the room. Third was surprised as a heavy punch nearly caught him off balance. In the man's hands was a long-barrelled weapon, unlike the ones the soldiers were carrying. Third reacted quickly and charged into the man before he could retract the pump. Third threw the elderly man off the chair with a quick uppercut from his Scything Talon.

The figure was motionless, but none the less Third ripped off a chunck of the human's back before proceeding up the stairs. A woman and three ragged-looking offspring cowered in the darkness. The dark could not conceal them. Third licked his venomous lips and pounded towards them. Never had he seen such easy prey.

Sixth jumped over a dead body and scampered towards the group of transports.
Six screeched as it fired its devourer as a form of covering fire, making the humans duck their heads and he even hit some. He then willed the Termagants forward, putting the thought of destroying the vehicles in their minds.
The Termagants swarmed forward, they scuttled along the ground, and as the humans noticed their presence one of them opened up with a weapon, killing two of the Gants instantly, the remaining seven gants faltered. They saw the danger of these weapons and their instincts told them to avoid it and to hide.
Sixth screeched and fired more devourer worms at the humans.
As the human manning the weapon changed his attention to Six, the Gants open up with their weapons, killing the human manning the weapon and killing several humans.
But by now, six of the Gants had died to the weapon fire and Six had a wound to his devourer arm.
