Final countdown @Jorimel @DeranVendar @Grall_Stonefist @dx144 Using his giant form, Pholax went straight for the source of the screeching. The creation on him tried to gain more purchase but he shook, the Anointed falling off him and eating a side of the assault cannon on the back-swing that nearly cut it half. With no time to really plan ahead, the Contemptor Dreadnought smashed into the witches and massacred them instantly. Two died as they were ran over while the third got turned into paste as he found himself between Pholax and the opposite wall. There was only one still living but before Pholax could take care of it, he suddenly registered another hit on his leg joint. Aleph, still under the Speaker's spell, seemed to have switched friend for foe and Night's Edge bit into the Dreadnought's form, doing enough damage to slow Pholax down a bit. However this influence lasted only for couple of more seconds as Aleph broke through these Warp chains and immediately lashed out against the sole surviving Speaker, which was in turn cut into couple of small pieces. With the last of the psykers dying, the grip with which the Dark Apostle commanded the denizen of the Warp weakened - and so did the creature himself. "NOOOO!" Marauder roared even as he smashed axe into Extrovious' shoulder, "NO! YOU CANNOT ESCAPE!" Extro's sword found the mark and more of the wicked flesh was parted, but the true damage came from Maraunder's inability to regain his physical form for much longer. He came at the Sergeant once again but the final blow never came as both the axe and the daemon evaporated into thin air, the only thing that remained was frost that gathered around Extro's form, the otherwordly anger replaced with a real one. "You think you won?" Dabogar roared in anger, executioner's sword going through the shoulder and upper chest in a spray of blood. "The Primodial Truth is undeniable, you will all be slaves to it, one way or another!" Extro's second attempt found no purchase as the Dark Apostle evaded the pommel strike, hitting the Child of the Emperor at the side of his face with the crozius, breaking open his helmet. Turning around, he unleashed a storm with his combi bolter, this salvo aimed at Aleph who was caught on the back, the bolts exploding all around his armor and putting its artifice to test. It was a last ditch effort by the looks of it, even though the Dark Apostle was quite enraged, the numbers and the sheer skill of the combatants in the room was turned against him. The Anointed which attacked Pholax also came after the swordsman, trying to sneak up to him while he was focused on another enemy, but Aleph was no fool and Daith'wyn found the mark, slicing off one of creature's elongated claws. Denatus was also nearby, the strange malaise that gripped him until then let go as the Speakers died, allowing him to attack again and again, no more slowed by the warp sorcery. "We are you, but so much more!" Anointed Word Bearer in front of him stretched his jaw and the sound came out, more like a blurt but Denatus understood it perfectly - and he likewise understood the need to silence it forever. Serpenta fired off a beam that burned through the creature just as it came after the Destroyer, claws coming in two quick stabs. First connected with Denatus' leg, but the second failed as meteor hammer smashed it on the back, bringing it down for another hit that broke half of its ugly face. Unnatural bones and muscle in the end proved to be no match for good old swinging ball and Denatus watched the blood on it burning even as it was spilled. He had the monster on the back-foot, the only thing he needed now was the proper killing blow (@Grall_Stonefist feel free to execute the Anointed with your next post). At the gates of hell: Dark Apostle Dabogar:16, The Anointed: 9/4 (attacking Denatus) Aleph:15, Extrovious:21, Pholax:, Denatus:14 [SW:3] Dark Apostle Dabogar is a boss and as such, this battle will be slightly harder because the enemy packs couple of extra talents. Dabogar has couple of extra actions. Denatus and Aleph are no longer under psyker spell.
