    "Shadow Spectre," Maesanai began, her voice soft, but clear. "Swooping Hawk, Warp Spider, Dark Reaper, Dire Avenger, Howling Banshee, and Striking Scorpion."

    As the chamber shifted around them to form the image of an Imperial city, the warlock stepped out and before them, regarding each of them. "Our Brother is already in the fray, it seems," she remarked brightly, nodding to the Dark Reaper, but she raised her blue eyes from him and onto the group at large. "But we were not brought here to fight alone. In time, we shall be Brothers and Sisters in truth. Are you ready, my friends, for the challenge that awaits us?"

    The warlock held out her bone-white mask, before placing it over her head, as it slotted into her runic armor. Her lenses flared electric blue, a fierce imitation of her own natural eyes.

    Entering the room, Kaltyr noticed the dark reaper training already. As the room then shifted into their practice mission, he began to look around at what was in his vision, attempting to pinpoint the best use of his skills. Perhaps a small group of enemies, easy to disorientate with the howl of the banshee, thus easy to slay. After a moment, the warlock spoke, and Kaltyr turned to face her.

    Kaltyr nodded at the warlocks words. “We shall meet the challenge, together.” He said, placing the banshee mask over his head. “I await your direction on where my strikes should fall.” He brandished his power sword in one hand, and held his shuriken pistol in the other. After checking both quickly, he changed his stance, ready to leap into the fray when the order was given, and the time was correct.

    The Shadow Spectre turned towards the Swooping Hawk, not even wasting a breath to answer the warlock. For they were warriors - of course they were ready. With swift and accurate movements, he moved his helmet from his hands onto his head, a pressurization tone let everyone know that it was now air sealed.

    "It seems we both have aerial capabilities, Hawk. I suggest we scout the maze ahead of us from above and inform our ground-bound brethren and sisters about the situation. I suggest we do not engage the enemy and only strike if we have to. I wish neither of us to be caught behind enemy lines."

    Idoneth spoke with a tone of guidance, but not leadership. He wanted to know what was on the mind of the young Hawk. Wondering if he had the youthful naivety of a young Eldanesh, or the wisdom of Kurnous. And either way, the Spectre would become the hawks shadow, not wanting him to be picked off alone by enemy forces.

    "Good plan! I'll fly with you!" Socelan replied with enthusiasm, clapping Idoneth on the shoulder sharply. He took a few running steps and pounced in the air using both legs. The wings activated and the Swooping Hawk soared with signature grace of his Aspect.
    "The Hawk watches over you, brothers and sisters! Worry not!" He announced and got into Idoneth's suggested supportive strategy.

    Idoneth and Socelan took to the 'skies' as it were, intent on spotting the targets and relaying information down to their allies. The rest of them waited in the starting area, preparing themselves for battle. All except for the Dark Reaper. He rose his launcher and leveled it, though there were no targets for him to fire upon. That is, until the action began. The flying Eldar had a chance to spot some models crafted after the imperial guardsmen of the humans staying in a ravine-like trench below them before a shot blasted through the air between them. It had come from one of the ruined buildings, and then a number of other soldiers popped from that same building, sending the duo of fliers into evasive maneuvers.

    Talruin took this as his chance, sending a starshot missile towards the top of that building where the first leading shot had come from. The explosive flew and impacted impeccably, sending that corner of the ruins to crumble and fire to pause from that area. However, the troops in the trench then popped out and loosed a volley of fire at the Dark Reaper. He could easily dodge, assuming he moved from his position. If he didn't, he would get a shot to his left knee and his right shoulder, not disabling him but indeed sending shocks through his system.

    This was almost certainly not all the enemy troops, but that was all that had been seen by now.​

    Socelan avoided the enemy fire and took some distance. "Let me guide your aim!" He cheered into the comms and swooped for an attack.
    He peppered the enemy positions with las fire, wanting to give a chance for the others to advance and fire back. The Swooping Hawk didn't place himself much in the way of enemy fire, only showing the location of the enemy with his volley with some chance of suppressing.
    He so wanted to bring the fight and cut the enemy down but held on to Idoneth's plan of pointing out targets as support to the main group.

    The steady hand and keen eye of the Reaper proved deadly for their simulated foes and subsequently for the terrain. Yet despite Dark Reapers being considered the most menacing of Aspect Warriors, such destruction was not wanton delivery of violence. No! Such things are an antithesis to the Path of the Warrior itself. The death that blossoms in the wake of all Aspect Warriors, Dark Reaper included, is a calculated , channeled, delivery of collective Eldar fury.

    Path of the Warrior is a as much service to the Asuryani as is to oneself.

    However, as combat escalated, such thoughts were quickly swept from Talruin's mind by the ensuring stiffness of the war-mask upon his mind, channeling his thoughts and emotion in the service of the War God.

    The massive recoil of his Reaper Launcher, as he loosed starshoot missile after another, was quickly compensated by his heavily armored Aspect Armor, the powered limb support of the lower leg armor and boots filled with stabilizers providing him with steady firing position.

    As the enemy deigned to retaliate, he stood his ground continuing his fire, soaking in the enemy fire across the kneeplate and right shoulder, the hits sending shocks across his systems. Recovering, he snarled a response to the simulacra:

    "Fear of death shall not stay my hand. Die!"

    Unable to dig out the enemy from their trenches, he fired the missiles on the buildings in the back, attempting to bury them alive beneath rubble.

    The Swooping Hawk had a height advantage over the Shadow Spectre, but he had the advantage of more evasive maneuvers. As he zig-zagged through the streets he marked targets he passed, giving the occasional shot back. He lacked the firepower of a united shadow spectre shot - but it was a Prism Rifle still, and its power was not to be underestimated.

    It was easy for him to not fully commit, holding discipline and patience at heart. The chain of explosions caused by the Dark Reaper threw his glance off for a moment, pirouetting through the air to take a look without making himself vulnerable to enemy fire. He made one last strafe shot before pursuing the swooping hawk - not wishing to leave him alone in enemy territory.

    "Keep it up, Hawk! We shall have our bounty soon enough!" He applauded his comrade, Idoneth being clearly pleased with the stratagem so far. But he wondered when the Mon'keigh simulations would adapt to it.

    "You are doing well, my friends, keep it up!" Maesanai directed her allies, as some took to the skies, others darted away to flank. For her own part, the Warlock remained behind with the fire support, favoring her shuriken pistol as she kept a reserved view of the battlefield.
