Felix, Melak, and Alexious; You haul ass from the room as what little refuse is laying about goes up. Felix is forced to all but drag Melak out, as he seems to be falling in and out of it, the knife still stuck in his side even as they get clear. Alexious is able to get out on his own, clutching his arm, blackened and slightly burned from not being able to completely get away from the flamer fast enough. Might need to have a word with Melak about that at some point after the sweeps are done. Calling for help, Tabitha runs up the stairs and crouches next to Melak and examines his wound; that is until she slaps him. "Come on get the frag up, its not bleeding that bad and the knife only went in an inch." This she says while actually taking the blade out with practiced ease, so as not to make the wound any worse. Spraying the wound with a sanitizer, the medic applies a foam to close the wound up before slapping on a bandage; then moving over to Alexious, she pulls a dose of painkiller from her kit, jabbing it into his shoulder before wrapping the exposed flesh in a bandage.

"Gonna be some scarring, and using that hand will cause you pain sooner than later; gonna need to fix you up better back at base." She said before checking out two of the other rooms, noticing that the floor to them is missing and that they simply fall out to the floor below. A crash from below calls your attention and you race to the first level.

[Melak, for the most part your fine; the knife wound was not nearly as bad as you thought it was. Alexious, looks like getting that glove might not have been the best of idea's, at least not unless you wanted some burns. Felix you will get down before the others, Alexious a little slowed by the painkillers and Melak having that larger flamer rig, and get to see the others coming out from one of the doors, having managed to get whatever is obstructing it out of the way and braking the thing down.]


Jonas, Dean, and Solamon; Jonas manages to rip a flak board from one of the window, falling flat on his ass in the process, but it looks like the effort was for very little. The sun had been setting for some time now, and what little light is left does fuck all. Not that the sergeant seems to mind, leveling his shotgun and blasting the top section away from a zombie, blowing away its head and the force ripping off an arm at the shoulder. Ramming a boot into the knee of one more, Brast quickly blows its head off in a shower of bone and brain.

"Enough of this shit, lets get the hell out of here." Brast growls before aiming the light beneath his gun at one of the doors and you al get a good look why you couldn't get in before. Heavy furniture, flak boards, defiled shrines all were piled up against the doors to prevent entry. "Don't just stand around like a bunch a ambulls, move that shit and lets get out of here."

[Well you heard the man, move that shit and get out of here; Jonas once the shit is out of the way you kick the door down, its hinges are pretty well gone. When that door goes down, you all rush out to see a body, that clearly wasn't there before. Felix, Tabitha, a slightly burned Alexious, and Melak soon come down the stairs, weapons raised.]

Serpio; As you finish making contact with the other squads, Felix suddenly dashes up the stairs. You go to follow, and only narrowly avoid running face first into someone falling down the steps; you dive to the side, landing with a thud, that vox caster pack isn't exactly light or very cushioning. Scrambling up, you turn in time to see Felix fire into the figure, a man in dirty coveralls who had been going for a large pistol, up until a round or two put an end to that.

Still stairing at the now corpse, you here Tabitha called for up above, to which the medic passes you by without a word; the sound of a fight just behind the blocked doors having come to an end. Allowing yourself a bit of a smile, you almost jump out of your skin when that dead man starts moving; you see his mouth moving as if to moan or something, but no sound comes out.

[Best put an end to this; as you kill the former cultist and now plague zombie, the others will come down before Brast and those who fell for the trap floor break back into the main section.]


All; Gathering at the main level, the bodies of fallen comrades gathered, Brast tells the medic to remain with them until the squad's transport can come by to help them. As for you, its onto the last of the habs on this block, then maybe its off to help one of the other squads or on to another location to look for people. Moving forward in pairs with overlapping fields of fire, you round the second hab and carefully pick your way through the light brush to the third one. Halfway there though, a shot rings out in the air and Brast dives to the side, ducking behind a burned out cargo hauler, a hole in his shoulder and his shotgun on the ground. "Cover now!" He yells before shots blast small holes in the ground near some of you.

[Jonas, Melak, and Solamon; your with Brast behind the hauler, rounds pinging off the hull from somewhere in the hab, likely the upper level. Whoever the shooter is is likely not a great shot, not that guardsman training makes you a marskman either, and that first shot was likely just luck. So what do you do? Try and take out the shooters from here or get inside and try to deal with them?

Dean,
Alexious, Serpio, and Felix; you duck back behind the side of the second hab, you can't see the shooter or shooters, but you get a look at the front doorway of the hab. A dozen shambling figures, clad in a motley assortment of clothing barely fitting over malnourished forms. Great, more zombies, and the others don't even know they are there. If, for some reason, they decide to try and charge inside, they will be caught out in the open for what will likely be a shooting gallery for those enemies up above. What are you going to do? Over the sound of gunfire, they might not hear you; but if you do nothing they will eventually be overrun or killed.]

Melak was a little shaken up, he wasn't used to getting stabbed like this, so when Tabitha said that the wound wasn't that bad at all he was quite surprised. Melak was still quite shocked and when suddenly Tabitha pulled out the knife he hissed with surprise. When she finished Melak thanked her and stood up shaking his head getting back to his senses, "lets hope we wont have to run" he said to himself. Melak helped Alexious who was slowed down by the painkillers, "sorry for the burns, I owe you one", Melak said while helping Alexious get to the rest of the squad.

Meeting with his fellow comrades Melak friendly said "hey, so you also had some fun?". Moving up with the squad, they cleared the next floor, "all here looks the same", he thought. Finishing with this hab, the squad started walking out and heading towards the 3th hab. "Soon we will finish with this place", Melak said to whoever was listening. In the brief moment that Melak breathed in after speaking he heard a gunshot coming for somewhere and hitting someone with the sound of flesh penetration. Melak saw Brast diving to a nearby burnet cargo hauler, he was wounded, a hole in his shoulder, he then shouted "Cover now!", Melak ran as fast as he could to the nearest cover which was the burnt cargo hauler. Ducking behind it like Brast he said "I have no weapon which can hit them from here if you can create a suppressive fire i will be able to get right beneath the building and burn them or throw a frag inside".

P.S OOG: just wasent sure, this is long enough right? (seriously)

Alexious gave himself a mental slap in the face for grabbing his glove back, it was a stupid move, he could've grabbed it latter yet he felt he had to act the smart arse and grab it back before the enemy died.
But now most of his arm was burned and tender because of his smart arsery.
He bent down to examine Melaks knife wound when Tabitha arrived and gave Melak a slap and wrenched the knife out without any hesitation.
She then turned to Alexious and gave his some painkillers. After taking them Alexious slipped his glove back on.
"Gonna be some scarring, and using that hand will cause you pain sooner than later; gonna need to fix you up better back at base." She said.
'Don't worry, I'm fine,' said Alexious almost dreamily. Throne these painkillers felt good.
Alexious went to stand and instantly felt a bit groggy, Melak helped him up.
"sorry for the burns, I owe you one", Melak said.
Alexious shook his head, 'Nah, it was my fault for being a smart arse and grabbing my glove back, but meh, we all make mistakes.'

They got down to the rest of the squad and Alexious said nothing while they were ordered out of the building and out into the daylight.
Alexious kept his finger on the trigger of his lasgun as they walked out. And just when he was about to slack off he heard a gunshot and the sound of punctured flesh.
Before any order was given Alexious dived behind the nearest cover, a burning pile of rubble and stuck his lasgun over the top, ready to shoot anyone who got too close.

Dean rammed his blade into the throat of a zombie, pushing it down under his weight. He stabbed it again through the mouth, just to make sure that it was dead. He quickly turned his attention to the rest, firing shots into them. He heard a crash behind him and turned to see Jonas pull a Flak Board off the window, not that it did much good. The light was pathetic and it looked like they would have to look for another way out. Dean heard Brast as he fired his shotgun and pointed his light towards the door.

It was heavily barricaded and Brast yelled over the commotion. "Don't just stand around like a bunch a ambulls, move that shit and lets get out of here." Dean immediately moved over to the door, and began pulling the heavy objects out of the way. Dean waited as Jonas kicked the door down, and they burst through into the first room. A body was lying there, and soon the others leapt down the stairs. They quickly moved out towards the last hab, having to cross a courtyard to get there.

As they were crossing the courtyard shots rang out. Brast quickly ordered the squad to find cover. Dean ducked behind the wall with Alexious, Serpio, and Felix. Dean looked over for sharp shooters but couldn't see any. What he did see was zombies in the main doorway of the hab. If Brast and the others moved forwards then they would be doomed. Dean looked over at the others. "Guys, there are zombies between Brast and the other hab. If they move forward then they screwed. I'm gunna make a break for them someone cover me."

Serpio just dove behind cover with Tabitha and Alexious. Noticing that Alexious was slowing because of his wound, he chirped up. “Alexious, why don’t you take rearguard from now on, your wound is affecting your reflexs and slowing you down . I’ll jump up front.”

Not waiting for an answer he moved over to Tabitha and said, “Hey Tabs, they probably didn’t see the where the shot came from. Let me pull a distraction to get him to shoot again. Then you put one in ‘is ‘ead. Sound like a plan, eh?

Solamon continued to fire his las rifle in quick succession, the air around the tip of his barrel started to smoke even with the heat dampening material that had been forged into the weapon. His hands were shaking as he continued to kill and kill, always two more to replace the corpses that fell to the floor. Sweat beaded on his brow in rivets as Jonas managed to rip a meager plank off of the window and falling on his ass while doing so. A sort of growl erupted from his throat as he saw how the trooper was fumbling with a simple task of ripping the flak board from the window. Then the reassuring sound of Brast's shotgun rung out from his left, he turned and watched as the Sargent ripped through another with a cool head and precise fire. Again Solamon turned to find Jonas on the ground, shaking his head as he yelled over the roar of Brast's weapon.

C'mon trooper get on your feet!

"Enough of this shit, lets get the hell out of here." Brast growls before aiming the light beneath his gun at one of the doors and you al get a good look why you couldn't get in before. Heavy furniture, flak boards, defiled shrines all were piled up against the doors to prevent entry. "Don't just stand around like a bunch a ambulls, move that shit and lets get out of here."

GLADLY SIR!

Solamon quickly went to work with Jonas, throwing various pieces of furniture and detritus out of the way. He destroyed the shrines with a sense of caution. They radiated a feverish sickness, and without his thick leather gloves he was prone to wearing he was sure that they would have given him whatever these things had. But he gave no more notice to the shrines as Jonas finally tossed the last peice of flak board to the side and kicked the door off its haphazard hinges with ease. Solamon waited for Jonas to rush out before stumbling out and over the downed door, gaining his footing as he took in a deep breath of "fresh" air. It still stank of decay and blood but at least it wasn't stuffy non recycled air. Dean and Brast followed along with the rest of the squad rushing down the stairs a few yards away. He slung his las rifle over his shoulder and bent down putting both palms onto his knees as he tried to register everything that had just happened, all of it was unreal to him.

Sarge? What in the holy name of the Emperor are those things?

The bodies of their dead comrades were gathered up and lined up against the building they had just escaped from. All of them had looks of horror painted across their faces, eyes that seemed haunted to have died in such a manner. He looked at the dead and shook his head, all of this could have been avoided if only they were more careful.

"Hey, so you also had some fun?"

Solamon looked up from the dead bodies at Trooper Melak, his eyes narrowing as he walked over to the trooper and shoved him by the shoulders. He push Melak twice before speaking each time sending him back a few paces, his voice raw with emotion at the death of his fellow Brontians and the fact that Melak found humor in the situation.

You think this is a game? You think its fuggin' funny to see our fellows dying while you are prancing around making jokes and relaxing when we're on a sweep? Take a long look at them! Do you want to end up like that? Or better yet do you want to catch whatever it is that these walking corpses have? This isn't a joke man... If you keep messing around you're going to get wasted like these guys.

He turned away from the foolish trooper and voluntarily went on point, the rest of the sweep was uneventful until about halfway through the units when the whip-snap of a auto round being shot and impacting into flesh rang out. Solamon addressed and was about to fire into the general direction which he thought the round came from when Brast yelled for them to cover. He backtracked a few paces and pressed himself up against the cold metal side of a Cargo Hauler. Dean, Jonas and Melak joined them much to his chagrin. He looked at Brast and noticed his shoulder was what had been hit and shook his head once more.

Sarge are you alright? FUG THIS MAN! I AM GOING TO PERSONALLY RIP THESE BASTARDS APART!

"I have no weapon which can hit them from here if you can create a suppressive fire i will be able to get right beneath the building and burn them or throw a frag inside."

THE HELL YOU WILL! You don't know where the hell those shooters are. Sarge! What do you suggest we do? Nobody moves until the sarge tells you to! Stay in cover god damnit!

Jonas ripped the flak board of one of the windows and fell on his ass. He quickly noticed that it did not help very much. Solamon yelled something to him about getting up
"As fast as I can" he yelled back, Jonas then got up in time to see Brast blast a zombie to parts and shouting at them to get away from the room.
Jonas quickly made his way to the door and helped Solamon to get away the stuff in front of it, and then kick it down. Jonas ran out from the room and almost stumble on a body.
"Huh, that was not there earlier." Jonas said with a bit of surprise. Then he turned to see the rest of the squad coming down the stairs. Jonas greeted them quickly, then turned away and threw up.
"I do not like dead things." He then said a bit weakly. He then heard a shot and Brast yelling to them to get cover, Jonas then jumped to the closest cover, with Brast, Melak and Solamon. He tried to see the shooters but could not, and when Melak suggested that he could go closer to get him he was about to say something but Solamon was faster.
Jonas then turned away and tired to see the shooters again.

Jonas; As you try to find the shooters, a round nearly takes your face off; but your training kicks in at the last second and you roll away from the slug and dirt harmlessly explodes against the side of your head. You had seen that one, second floor, some antique single shot fire-arm. However a more pressing issue is the sight you got a glimpse of as you were rolling away, what looked like twenty figures on the other side of the hauler.

[Might be a good idea to tell the others of what you saw, or alternativly try to take that one shooter out first; your choice. What you decide to do occurs before what comes next and the orders of Brast. Make sure to read the next blue bit.]

Solamon and Melak; Ripping an auto-pistol from his side, Brast spits a mixture of saliva and blood onto the ground before speaking. "Frag this shit; we're hardliners people, get the job done faster and better. Sittin' here and takin' pot shots aint the way, we get in close and let these bastards burn. Melak, the rest of us are gonna toss frags and try and get 'em in the windows, when we do you haul ass to the steps and clear the way, we'll be right behind you." He says before unclipping a frag and getting ready to hurl it.

[Well you heard the man; depending on what Jonas opted to say or do, you may be aware of the enemies on the other side of the hauler, since he was the only one to actually try and see anything. There will be a mini-update for you three, however Jonas needs to act first this time rather than last as is generally so.]

Serpio; As the others hit the deck and try to get out of sight, your bulky caster makes this more of a challenge for you. Before you can get behind cover, something smacks into your side and sends you spinning to the ground and into cover. Your arm is in agony as you realize something, possibly a las-bolt, hit you and punched through your flak armour. Looking around, you want to yell for Tabitha to help you but realize she is not there, since Brasts order she hasn't been with the group. Strange, but how were you trying to have a conversation with her before when she was not there to begin with?

[Well that sucks; but there are more pressing issues than your pain stricken arm. The others are in danger and Dean seems ready to jump head-first into that danger to help the others. Do you try to join him, or get into contact with someone else? Vox transmission in this area has been patchy at best for whatever reason, but you do know that at least one squad and the reapers, the pair of sentinals accompanying both squads, are in the area. More bodies or some heavy weapons could help out here, or they might cause more harm. What do you decide to do?]

Dean and Alexious; You see Serpio take a hit but fall back next to you. At least he is out of sight, he can look after himself for now, the others need some support. You break from cover, firing at the windows from the hip; meaning you hit nothing, well the building but that hardly counts for anything. One shot manages to go so wild it hits one of the two dozen zombie's on the ground, and actually puts it down for good. Felix breaks cover with you, but another unlucky round hits him strait in the chest, throwing him from his feet and onto the ground. You don't know if he is alive or dead and can't do anything about it or you might risk getting yourself killed trying to help.

[You slide into cover behind another vehicle, this one not a burnt out husk, as shots ping off the hull. Well at the very least you took some attention off the others. From here you have some sight on the zombies; you can always try to take shots at them, or see about getting his ground car moving, maybe get in real close or provide some mobile cover or something? Or you can just screw it and get to the others; what do you choose?]

As Jonas was trying to see if he could see the enemy shooters, and noticed some one standing in the window on the second floor. And that shooter aimed straight at Jonas and shoot, Jonas dodged in the last second by throwing himself out of the way.
"That was close" Jonas thought for himself when the bullet landed hit the ground very close to him. Jonas then rolled a bit more into cover and saw a bunch of figures on the other side of the hauler.
Jonas quickly estimated there to be about twenty figures there.
"We got a problem!" Jonas shouted to the rest of his squad, then he realised it was not maybe the best idea to shout. He then made his way to Brast.
"I saw about twenty figures on the other side of the hauler, not sure if they are enemy's or our own, but probably not friendly. And there is one on the second floor with some old weapon" Jonas quickly said.

Melak was watching Jonas as he tried to find out where the shooter is. Then a shot rang and Jonas dodged in the last second. The bullet hit the dirt, causing no damage. He saw Jonas then rolling into cover, he shouted to them "We got a problem!" but then before finishing he decided to get closer so he rushed to Brast's position and said, "I saw about twenty figures on the other side of the hauler, not sure if they are enemy's or our own, but probably not friendly. And there is one on the second floor with some old weapon".

"This will be tricky, I'm not sure ill be able to pass 20 men and get under the building, maybe we can distract them somehow?". Melak tried to pick out and see who are this figures, and are they friendly. But as soon as he got his head out of cover a shot rang and hit the dirt near him, "This was not wise", he thought.

Melak thought how to get this job done, but then he remembered Brast's words, "Frag this shit; we're hardliners people, get the job done faster and better. Sittin' here and takin' pot shots ain't the way, we get in close and let these bastards burn. Melak, the rest of us are gonna toss frags and try and get 'em in the windows, when we do you haul ass to the steps and clear the way, we'll be right behind you.", this encourged him and he shouted, "OK lets stick to the old plan... Ill run and you'll cover me." As they nodded towards him, Melak got ready and hoped for the best. "I must be suicidal", he said. Just for luck Melak picked a stone and tossed it in the other direction from which he is going to exit. And as soon as the stone landed, Melak dashed out of cover, and ran as fast as he could trying to get beneath the building.

Alexious arrived at the not burnt out vehicle and swung his lasgun around the side and let rip, he couldn't see anything but that didn't matter. He kept firing until he ran out of charges.
'Emperor damn it, why did I join the Guard,' he said to no-one in particular with a strong humour undertone.
He swung back around the vehicle and reloaded with a quick flick of the hand.
He then swung back around the vehicle and emptied the clip, trying to draw the enemies attention and giving the others a chance to get to some worthwhile cover.

(OCC: Thanks darkreveer, i was waiting for this moment, now my dudes either gonna die or be an inspiration, who know??)

Serpio felt a sudden pang as he made his move and suddenly he was thrown behind a flak baord by the force of the hit. Dropping his weapon, he tore open his flak padding to see a small cauterised hole in his lower arm.

"Shit, damn, shit, ouch, man, this sucks." He grabs his small pack on his hip and tears out his med-kit and wraps the wound in some skin-plas to seal it up. Putting it away he grabs his weapon and props himself up next to the edge of the wall. He saw that Dean had broken cover and now was hunkered by a vehicle, pouring random shots at something Serpio couldn't see. Then, to his horror, he saw Felix take a hit and drop like a rag doll onto the ground less than 10 feet from him.

His mind raced, yes or no? Save him or let him die?

"Ahhhh, screw this frakking fething crap," and he bolted from cover; dropping his rifle. He got to Felix andstarted to drag him with his one good arm back to cover. It seemed that the attention hat Dean had pulled was failing and already shots were coming his way while zombies wailed out anguished cries as they ran towards him. 2 feet and almost there, pulling as hard as he could.

Finally he got Felix into cover, but not before another shot spun him around, this one clipping his shoulder gaurd. He quickly assessed the wound, and saw it wasn't life threatening, so he left it.

"Damn it God-Emporer, why is it you give me the worst luck." Grabbing his rifle he propped it up and started to shoot at the oncoming zombies, who were less than 20 feet from him.

"Come and get it you damn bastards, I'm not dying just yet, aaarrrrggggghhhhhh!!!!" He jsut shot and shot, falling into a haze of red, not caring about the world around him. His only thought was when was help gonna come, and would this ever end.

Hardliners my ass...

He mumbled in a sour tone. Solamon glanced away for a few seconds to check on the other half of the squads position. From what little he could see they were fine enough... He was beginning to think they were going to make it until Jonas and then Melak both peeked their heads out only to have them almost blown to bits. He grimaced and felt the urge to rebuke both of them once more, but that was the sarges job. The constant pained groans, crackling fires all around and autorifle fire added with being paired up with two of the squads greenest members was beginning to grate upon his nerves. Brast began to bark out instructions a few moments later and almost laughed when it was Melak that Brast instructed to be the runner. He unclipped a grenade and patted Melak on the back as he shuffled past.

Dont fug this up Melak. There ain't any R&R where we're going buddy.

As Melak ran for it he pulled the pin on his grenade and waited for the "Sniper" to direct his attention twoards Melak and then stepped out of cover and threw the grenade towards the second story window where he believed the sniper to be. The grenade was just short and hit the wall sort of bouncing back and exploding. It took a fat chunk from the already cracked permacrete from the wall and sent it tumbling down only to have it shatter into smaller chunks as it hit the ground.

Ah fug it all!

Solamon took a few seconds to see the many figures that stood between them and the hab. Jonas was right, at first he thought that the trooper was just talking crap. He pulled himself back into cover and shouldered his lasrifle once more.

Hell there are a lot of those bastards Sarge... Hardliners or not we are going to need a heavy gun or some type of support. Where is that trooper with the flamer?

Jonas and Solamon; Hurling the grenades at the building, you force the shooters to duck back in order to avoid the worst of the frags. This gives Melak the opening he needs to haul ass towards the unguarded opening and you time to pour shots into the mob of shambling zombies. Once again it won't be a peace of cake, you aren't marksmen by any means, hell your fresh recruits, and these enemies don't seem to notice pain. "Where's the flamer?" Brast yells through a snarl, his weapon barking and taking a zombie in the chest. "Who the frag do you think we just sent in to burn those shooters out?"

Dean and Alexious; Firing blindly, Alexious hits absolutely nothing, actually coming close to almost hitting Jonas in the back once though thankfully no one else noticed that one. Exhausting his lasguns power pack, Alexious tried to rocket through reloading, but managed to fumble with the new pack and drop it to the ground. Grabbing it again, Dean points to the zombies, several now in sight as they turn their attention on the others who have broken from cover.

[Twenty-ish zombies and four of you, won't be the easiest in the world but have fun with that. These things are slow, feel little if any pain, and are looking to sink their teeth into some part of you. You might be faster, but their decaying bodies are still pretty damn strong. Jonas and Solamon, the attention of these things is on you and Brast; Dean and Alexious, while the shooters are avoiding taking grenades, might be a good idea to get in their with the rest of the squad so you can hit stuff.]


Melak; Hauling yourself up, you toss a grenade in the direction of the zombies, more to keep them away from you and from the building your running to. Diving through the entrance, you roll to a crouch with your flamer in both hands and quickly make for the second floor, grabbing an enemy at the top of the steps, shattering his kneecap, and hurling him down the steps. He might still be alive, but with that leg he's going nowhere.

[Get to that second floor, there are four more enemies up their, none aware of your coming. Three are shooters with older bolt action auto-rifles, the last one is a large man who seems to be setting up a heavy weapon, heavy stubber or heavy bolter maybe. Deal with them as you see fit; Emperor's burning justice sounds nice.]


Serpio; With a snap you open your eyes, you had blacked out after taking the hit to the arm. There were no zombies coming at you, hell there was nothing even noticing you. Everyone's attention is to the third hab unit. Your arm hurts like all hell, and you realize Tabitha has your medkit, turned over to the medic just like everyone else. Might be a good idea to lend some help to your squad, or you could run away or something; after all who would notice if the guy with the vox caster runs away rather than fight alongside his squad, or call in any help that he might be able to get through to.

[Guess the bit before was to subtle or something; interference is making the vox less than reliable at the moment, but it might be possible to get in touch with one of the other squads nearby or even the reapers.]

Alexious saw the twentyish zombies heading for his squadmates.
'Zombies, what out,' Alexious yelled as he fired at the Zombies approaching them, rolling from cover and heading towards his squad mates.
He emptied his pack into them and only managed to "kill" two and wound some others, not that they felt it.
'Emperor Damn it!' Alexious yelled as he plucked a grenade from his belt and lobbed it at the slowly approaching Zombies.
The blast caught three and knocked them from their feet and confused a few more.
But in seconds the remaining eighteen of the zombies were still coming at him and his squad mates.
'For the love of the Emperor, just die,' Said Alexious as he slammed a fresh power-pack into his lasgun.

Dean had taken cover behind a car, and was unable to find anyway to start it to use it to protect his squad mates. In the end he stayed back, firing at the horde of zombies that moved towards his squad mates. Alexious was next to him firing wildly at the zombies and cursing at them. Dean looked at him, before standing and taking aim, he sighted a zombies head and let loose a trio of shots. Two missed but thankfully one of them managed to slam into its head, taking it down and out of the count.

The shooters had retreated as the rest of the squad lobbed grenades at them, meaning that it was safer for them to fire upon the zombies. Dean sighted another and fired a further 8 rounds, hitting it in the chest repeatedly taking the second zombie down, hopefully so it won't rise up again.

Melak ran, he did not look back . As he saw the zombies in front of him he did not have the time to be scared or surprised so he throwed a grenade into a group of them barely hitting any zombies but creating a dust cloud for a moment which hid him and gave him the time to enter the building. While running he heard explosions and a large amount of gun shots he just hoped that it was his squad mates and not the enemy. Melak reached the entrance as he dived inside covering himself from further gunfire or zombies, at least he hoped so...

Apparently the enemy did not notice his arrivel as no one waited at the entrance to shoot him down. Quickly spotting the stairs for the next floor Melak slowly climbed up trying to make no noise so he wont alert the enemy. As he walked up the stairs he saw a human average sized he did not look to strong, probably was a cultist, the human did not notice him, so Melak approached slowly from behind. When he was ready he grabbed the man and with a strong kick shattered his kneecap as the man was about to scream for help and from agony Melak mercilessly threw him down the stairs, it made quite a noise but apparently not enough to overcome the gunfire outside.

Melak continued up until he reached the second floor, it was as ugly as the first, the only difference between then was that this one had four shooters in it. Three out of the four where shooting with old looking bolter rifles and the fourth man was bigger then the rest and use some kind of a heavy weapon, probably a heavy bolter. Melak had to act fast because if the man finished then the end will be upon the rest of his squad. All the riflemen were closed in one room each hiding behind a different section of the wall but the heavy weapons man had a different room.
Melak decided to give up subtlety and drew out his flamer as he entered the room with the riflemen, before the noticed him he fired, a burst of liquid flame fired out of the flamers mouth, incinerating everything left in the room and soon burning the riflemen to ash, "The emperors justice is done", Melak said pleased, although the riflemen were dead the flame did not stop and start spreading throughout the whole building. That was bad as the building itself wasn't to strong, to make things worse the heavy weapon man noticed him and as Melak was turning around a fist smashed into his face knocking him back, and probably broke his nose, Melak didn't scream yet the pain could be seen upon his face. Melak turned the flamer towards the man and fired forcing the man to retreat back to the room which he came from, but as Melak was about to burn the room something fell on him, knocking him down, although knocked down luck has played to his favor as the heavy weapon man did not come out, he probably thought the Melak was waiting for him. He looked back and saw a big wooden pole, this was what knocked him down but apparently the flamer sustained most of the hit. Melak knew that after such a hit the flamer can easily blow up,quickly standing up Melak put down the flamer, a bit away from the flames, it will give him some time before the flamers reach it.

Drawing out his knife Melak quickly entered the room, the second he entered the man smashed into him as the both smashed into a nearby wall, after smashing him into the wall the man grabbed Melak and tossed him to the other side of the room, he was very big maybe even a half ogryn. Melak tried to stand back on his feet as the man approached, Melak noticed that the bolter was not completely set up and was facing the man. The man reached Melak and grabbed him, starting to choke him... Melak quickly stabbed twice, one time at the enemy wrist which caused the man to leave him and scream in agony and the second was in the knee which crippled the man abit and only intensified his screaming. It was then when Melak noticed that the whole room entrance was a flame, there was not escaping and soon the fire will reach the flamer also which with its blast will surely obliterate Melak and the man. Seeing no other way out, Melak turned back towards the man and pushed him to the big window, the man did not fall but he barely held himself with his damaged knee and wrist, the next thing which happened none of them expected, Melak heard a hiss, "Oh crap!", he shouted as he knew the sound of the flamer tank. Having no other option Melak rushed towards the man and jumped on him hitting him shoulders first, they both were thrown out of the window by Melak's force and apparently by the blast which followed, as they were in the air Melak struggled to stay on top to allow the man to absorb most of the ground which was approaching them fairly quickly.

Serpio ducked down behind cover and, on automatic reflex reached for his medic pouch only to realise that he didn't have it. Tabitha had taken it earlier for the medic, and now Serpio could only rely upon the healing properties of his own body. He took a risk, and dashed quickly across the yard behind a wall; a few shoots following him as he went.

Getting his breathing under control, Serpio quickly accessed the situation. He realised they would never get through without help, and even that was limited. So he activated his vox-caster and dialed the tuner on his wrist attachment to the right frequency.

"Tango-Alpha-Six-Niner-Niner, this is Bravo Three Six, Reapers do you copy." A few monets of static, then a voice came over the line. "This is Tango-Alpha-Six-Niner-Niner, Sargeant First Class Heffern speaking, who is this."

"Sir, vox-caster operater Bravo-Three-Six, Serpio. I'm in need of some immediate back-up on my location, coordinates Alpha 93 by way of 45. My unit has meet some staunce resistance, and need aid in breaking through to the rest of our people." The Sargeant on the otherside, seemed to converse for a bit before returning to the vox.

"Stay right where you are son, well see about getting you some aid soon." Serpio breathed a sigh of releif, hoping that this slimmer of light would last longer than the next hour.


(OCC: darkreveer, I'm leaving it to you to decide what happens here. i felt I would be GM'ing if I went any further without your say)

Jonas threw a grenade at the shooters in the building, hoping to hit them directly. Then turning his attention towards the zombies, starting to shoot at them, without very much result, or at least not any good result.
"Die stupid things." Jonas half yelled towards no one in particular. Then he hit a zombie in the head and the zombie fell down. He continued to shoot but no other results. Then some one else started to shoo at them too, and Jonas noticed that Dean and Alexious also was shooting at the zombies. Some more zombies fell to their fire, but not enough.
"Why can't those damn zombies just go down and stay down, I do not want to die here." Jonas thought quickly while aiming for another zombie.

Jonas, Dean, and Alexious; Continuing to hammer at the infected, a high pitched whine cuts through the air just before a slew of burning red laser blasts engulf the mob. Within a matter of seconds the remaining dozen plague zombie's are torn to shreds, the armoured forms of Reaper lead and Reaper five calmly walking forward.

Melak; Bracing for the worst, you are forced to plant your elbow into the man's face as the two of you plummet to the ground. All to quickly though, the ground rushes up to meet you and things end with a thud and much pain. Rolling off the man, you notice that his chest is caved in and blood is coming out of the back of his head. Alright so he is definitely not alive anymore; at least the bruises and scrapes you sustained aren't nearly as bad.

Getting back to your feet, you look around to a scene of carnage. The mob of what was zombies lay cut down, the rest of your squad are gathered nearby. Further away though is a site that makes you smile: patrolling a bit aways are the Reapers, two of the six sentinals that are part of the Hard Liners platoon. Better than that, Gabriel Hultz, Reaper lead, took up patrol with Brast's squad C and squad D.

Serpio; As you call in for support, it dawns on you that your not part of squad B, but instead squad C. (Was mentioned in the very first post of the action thread) Quickly correcting your mistake, a voice cackles over the vox, telling you that help is on its way. The vox washes out most of the tone, so its hard to make out just who you spoke to, but you could swear those words were being slurred by a lisp of some kind. And if thats the case, then it can be only one person: Reaper lead.


All; Thanks to the timely intervention of the Reapers, and the third building burning down, all threats in the area seem to be at an end. Bad news is no survivors located this time, good news is you get to go on and check one of the four other hab blocks. You like busting in doors and possibly walking into traps right?

The sentinals finish their patrol of the area just as squad D pull into the open ground with their chimera, your own close behind with medic Jackson surveying from the top hatch. Before the transports comes to a halt, he is jumping out of the thing and running over to check out Brast and Serpio.

[Right, so no fighting in this one; how 'bout them reactions though? As the sentinals come in close, Hultz jumps down from his and walks over to Brast and squad D's sergeant to speak with them. The Reapers are the elite of the platoon, hand picked from the squad's by Reaper lead; Hultz himself hailing from squad C and an old friend of Brast. The man is held in high regards to say the least.]
