+++ THE ASSYRIAN EMPIRE +++ PART II
Meanwhile back on the planet we re-join our Hero as she continues to battle with the forces of darkness...
Mjr Natalya's Guard Captain deflects a reaction shot from the Peach Liberation Army Commander and shoots him right back.
The Clone Commander loses a gun and his helmet and is momentarily stunned, he's still alive though.
Another Guard takes the head off a PLA Clone but misses the other.
The last Star Commando manages to pick himself up and even though he's still suffering from the effects of the explosion he still manages to bag himself another PLA Clone.
It doesn't leave much left, sorry RJ. (You've still got two men left and your action to come).
WHAT'S THIS?!! Disobeying Orders?!. Thrown away weapons and didn't attack?!. Have this man shot!!!
...got it working and it still has power AND ammo you say?.. Someone stick a medal on that quick thinking fellow!..
The Heavy Flamer sends a searing ball of fire at the Daemons. The Blood Daemon is untouched and the ball continues on.
It hits a Daemonic Minion right in the chest.
Oooo, that's gotta' hurt. Unfortunately the area effected is only small.
The Major is saving her Maytricks powers for something else this turn but she wont be sitting idle, oh no, never fret she has a Peach she wants a word with.
She smashes the flat of the blade into the Peach Commanders face.
Suitably persuaded to accompany her, the Commander does not voice his curiosity.
The Major is a paragon of manners and does her utmost to see the enemy Commander is comfortable.
The pleasantries overwith the Major leaves her worthy foe to his well earned rest... at least until the Fleebnorks reach him. Peaches, not always good for nothing.
The Assassin Droid switches to single shot fire and takes very careful aim...
Hey look! It's Cheif Flying Head!.. uh, it was an Iroquois Native American Daemon... *cough* ...the explosion looked like a head-dress
The other Assassin Droid finishes loading for next turn.
Having been ordered by the Captain to heal him the slightly stunned and shaky Assyrian Trooper, unsure of his skills in triage and knowing full well he has been pushing his first aid abilities well beyond the norm takes some courage from a swift swig of MANIAC BEER!..
+++ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED!!!+++ DRUNK SURGERY!
...nobody attempting major surgery for the first time should ever look this happy...*SPLURGE!* *RIP!* *SPLATTER!* *SCREEEEEEEEE!!!*
...um, well... he's eager... perhaps some anaesthetic first, um, yeah...
FINISHED!.. The Trooper takes a well earned rest and keels over unconscious... or dead, not sure.
What? Oh, the Captain?.. Yeah...
...I don't think the Captain lives here anymore... (Just looking at him, don't you just want to go hide someplace?)
However, when all this is going on the main Assyrian Assault is unleashed...
Right into the teeth of the Undead Deadly Spacemen's Response action. Shh, yeah I should have had a pic of the Assyrians charging... next time, k?
The Trooper with the Maniac Bastard Blaster is taken down...
the last NCO is picked off too.
The remaining two troopers bravely charge on. One takes out a Blood Daemon.
The other trooper fires on the Old One...
...but the shot is absorbed by a redshirting Blood Daemon who takes the fatal hit.
Scrambling over the wreckage, blood and bodies the troopers reclaim the prize. But can they keep it?
The Majors Command of the Maytricks allows her late arriving heavy support Star Commandos to arrive just when needed.
As the Star Commandos deploy one shoots MQS like a dog before he can act. It's an undignified death... but he'll be back, just not soon. The Heavy Bolter and the other Carbine armed Star Commando set up reaction covering fire.

It's blast is hotter than the fires of hell, bright as the sun -- it should be a perfect weapon for incinerating the blood daemons. I suspect my traditional laser weaponry is not able to hurt them very well, so if possible resort to that instead.
As per standing orders the newly arrived Plasma Rifle armed Lieutenant and the Plasma Cannon armed Heavy both target the OLD ONE and fire!
Hotter than the fires of hell...
...bright as the sun...
Is this the end for The OLD ONE?!. Well, is it?
