THE ASSYRIAN EMPIRE
The Assyrians are ordered to advance. However, the only safe way onto the platform is through a narrow gap so only one or two Troopers can reach the edge of the fallen platform. Being unable to use their numbers to concentrate their firepower while facing a determined and well prepared enemy it is thought perhaps discretion is the better part of valour.
But, it's not a total loss though as they Assyrians, like every other race isn't opposed to some Battlefield looting. One very fine Sniper Rifle, One small one-shot rocket launcher (MkI) and a couple of Grenades. There are more things in the crates but that's all these guys can take out this turn.
Two Medipac's are found too. Medic!..
A few shots are fired as a reminder to keep their heads down.
The NCO's and the Heavy decide to have some target practice using the Peach as the target. Shots fly everywhere until eventually the Peach is hit.
A door opens in the Drop Command Centre and two Assyrian Prototype Mk III Assassin Droids step out.
They quickly assemble their new weapons from the Immortal TechTM
Infinity Cases. There's an awful lot of Immortal stuff going around.
They rapidly deploy following their orders.
One wasted Missile and Heavy Recoilless Rifle blast later...
+++Daemons targeted with no effect. Awaiting instruction.+++
The Star Commando's take to the air. They borrow the grenades that were lying unused.
Since they are unable to coordinate a simultaneous attack the Commander orders his men to join up with the Troopers. He drops a grenade on his way past disrupting any reaction fire at his men and taking out two Super Jews.
Seeing the reason for all the confusion he immediately takes charge, until the Captain gets back into the fight.
The distinct ear piercing scream of a jetbike on it's attack run sounds overhead. The Assyrians look to the skies. It's Major Smith!..
He roars in fast...
Target aquired, guns blazing and rocket away!..
It's a hit! Huzzah!
Damn! The Stalker, only wounded has lost it's main weapon and two of it's legs making it unsteady but it's still active.
