<Mechanicus aparatus battleus> @BuriasDempsey @Uriel1339 Kombuse hastily removed the now dead limb that impaled him and gripped his heavy flamer with determination to do better against the Skitarii Troopers. Rushing forward, he unleashed a torrent of flames from his weapon, and the wave of heat and death rushed forward to embrace the remaining mechanicus forces. Fire wrapped themselves around the skitarii, and their processors melted before they could turn, let alone retaliate. Before long the Pact Trooper found himself standing in the midst of a bunch of charred flesh and metal corpses. Turning, he used the remaining time to turn his weapon upon the servitors as well. However, recognizing the sudden flare-up in their infrared sensors as well as the disappearance of their allied units, the servitors quickly vacated the area, avoiding the fire. Ausarius, already in the midst of the combat servitors, swirled his force spear around. As the whims of fate changes so did his fortune. The Thousand Son's weapon caught several servitors in one swing, decapitating one and bisecting to others. Another rushed forward, only to be impaled by the back end of the sorcerer's weapon. The servitors, without their direction from the tech-priest, quickly fell into disarray. The once highly coordinated pattern of attack and defense turned into a mess and confusion, and this led to their attacks overstretching themselves, allowing the sorcerer to remove another servitor from the equation with his weapon. Seeing the battle all but won, Phocron became the second to respond, directing his bolter fire at the servitors. However, in a rare moment of miscalculation by the XX legionnaire, he either overestimated himself or underestimated the enemy dramatically. His shots went wide, allowing more than few retaliatory las shots to collide with his chest plate. Valu's cover did little to thwart the counter-attack, due to both sudden poor shooting by both the shapeshifter and his clandestine master. Satharn entered next, cautiously swinging his chain glaive forward as well. Unfortunately, it seemed that even in their programming, the servitors' ferocity increased knowing their inevitable destruction at the hands of their enemies. A servo arm struck out over the slow swing and collided with the Night Lord's Helmet, cracking a visor and sending him backwards. Corbulus brought up the rear, his tainted power axe bristling with corrupting energy. He fared little better either as his weapon cleaved nothing but air, missing his target completely. A second swing from the Alpha Wolf did even worse, as several mechandrites shot out from the servitors and they grabbed the astartes before dogpiling him, ripping and tearing at anything that they could get their hands on. For a force standing on their last legs, the servitors were doing everything they could to make sure their enemy dies at the hands of the next force they encountered. Forces of Adeptus Mechanicus: Combat servitors:9 Corbulus:10 Satharn:10 Ausarius:11 Valu:7 Kombuse:8 Phocron:13 Conditions: As a reminder, Valu can heal himself and Kombuse 4 times during this mission for d3 HP, the healing move takes up one of the actions during a turn. The number of the healing cannot go over the initial number of your HP.
