Normal marines can be hard!

Post by Klomster on Fri Oct 10, 2008 3:25 pm

This is something i wrote at pandemic forum too show that marines are hard. It's probably a black templar (sorry, not a knight) who fights against the orks.

Enjoy!


"The drop pod had been shot down, 4-5 seconds before it would have landed, Brother Kethares squad had been scattered all over the drop zone, most were proably dead.

But not Kethares, he stood up, still a bit shaken by the impact, the internal systems in his power armour had gotten a good shaking and were all rebooting.

One by one the hud display icons in his visor returned, Air recycling, 98%, Power level 94%, external atmosphere, stable.

Kethares caught his breath, he felt a pain in his chest, the hud display alerted him that one of his 4 longues was damaged, nothing major, he would still be at about 95-99% combat effectiveness.

He looked out over the barren desert landscape, it was strangely silent, a few drop pods still sailed down through the clouds in the far distant.

He checked his map, 6 miles off, not that bad.

He began his ascent towards the drop zone, he had landed in a huge sand dune, a normal man would struggle to even move, but not a space marine.

Suddently smoke trails was visible on the horizon, was it what he thought it was?

He pressed on with his ascent, and reached flat ground, he had guessed right!

Ork speed freaks had spotted him, or just randomly zoomed through here, no matter what they were the enemy, and all enemies must perish!

He readied his bolter, took aim, there were at least 3 transports, known as "Trukks" by the greenskins, and a few bikes.

Kethares focused his aim, and with a single loud boom, he fired his bolter once.

The driver of the middle trukk was hit directly in the head, the microreactive shells depleted deuterium core exploded inside the aliens head, as the bolt was designed to do, sending skull fragments and brain tissue all over the trukks front.

The vehicle began to sway back and fourth and suddently flipped and rolled twice, sending hull plating, machinery and orks flying in all directions, the trukk dissapeared in a rolling dust cloud.

The two other trukks zoomed past the wreck, and closed in with horrendous speed.

Ketharis readied a krak grenade, loosened the pin with a twist of his thumb and waited for the trukks to close in.

10 seconds to impact.

5 seconds, 4, 3, 2 , 1!

He threw the grenade at the closest trukk and hurled himself to the side, the grenade flew trough the frontal plating of the engine and detonated inside, resulting in the vehicles sudden explosion.
It was instatly covered in flames from the fuel as the burning wreck flew past Ketharis.

The last trukk made a strong turn and began his second ram attempt, but before it had gotten any real speed it suddently stopped.

The slightly shocked orks inside watched the armourd figure at the front of the trukk, with his left armoured foot ontop of the now pretty mangled front of their fine vihicle.

Ketharis raised his bolter one handedly at the orks inside the vihicle and spoke the words.

-In the name of the emperor.... Die xeno scum! Then he oppened full automatic fire, cutting down several of the orks at once.

A few managed too disembark and charged at Ketharis with their choopas held high roaring Waaagh!
3 of the orks were shot down with 3 well placed shots but they still kept coming.
He drew his combat knife, easily the length of a sword for a normal man and held it in his right hand, bolter in the other.

If the orks wanted melee, they would get melee!

One of the orks reached Ketharis and swung the choppa from high, Ketharis parried with his bolter and did a fast attack and cut it's trhoat.

He did a quick spin and let the dead ork fall down behind him, another ork was shot down with a well placed bolter shell in the middle of the eyes at close range.

One ork boy threw himself at Ketharis so he lost his footing, he tumbled to the ground and grappled the ork as they rolled a few times on the ground, in the end, Ketharis was on top of the orks back and broke his neck, and rolled off.

Before he had time to stand up a huge choppa hit the gound in front of him, as Ketharis looked up he saw a huge ork, almsot bigger than him, armed with a huge cleaver and a crude power claw!

This must be one of their leaders, Ketharis thought.

-Fight me umie marine! The ork said in low gothic.

Ketharis stood up and readied himself for the attack.

The ork sneezed once and then charged, with a loud WAAAGH!
An ork of this size is a problem, even for a space marine.
The ork swung his cleaver, Ketharis barely dodged and made a counter attack with his knife, he cut a big slice into the orks right arm, but that just did him more angry, the same cut would have sliced a man in half, but the highly resilient nature of orks and the size of this particular nob made that pretty irrelevant.

The ork hit him in the chest making him reel backwards a bit and loose his breath.
Seeing the oppurtunity the ork swung his cleaver into Ketharis chest puncturing the armour and even damaging his chest.

But the choppa was now stuck there, and as the ork tried to drag it free Ketharis chopped and slashed rapidly at the orks right arm at the same spot until it fell off.

Now the ork nob was really pissed, rooaring with anger.

-Argh, jov got me arm umie, but that aint nuthin! The ork smiled as the huge power claw whizzed into life.

The two exchanged blows and dodged attacks for at least an hour, until they were both drained.

-The xeno can never prevail! Ketharis said.

-Good fight umie, but now ya die! The ork said.

They both stood up and rooared their battle rooars as they charged each other, and with a mighty crash they collided and both fell silent.

.....
A hand drew out the bloodied combat knife from the nobs mouth, it had penetrated the orks thick skull and pointed out on the top.

Ketharis stood up, his black armour covered in dust and blood.

The choppa was still thrust into his chest.

Ketharis bent it loose and began too walk again, the bikes driving off into the distant.

6 miles left too the drop zone, where the real combat begin!

End!

Nice read Klomster; albeit the "fighting for hours" bit was a little insane Razz I'm sure a killing blow would be made sooner with a Space Marine.

Over all, it reminded me of an old story, in a novel were a Space Marine killed a load of Dark Eldar from the shadows...except, in this case, there's no Eldar and no shadows Razz But still.
