The Sable Swords - Part 1

The shower of blood indicated that brother Solos' frag missle had hit home into the ork lines, the sound of bolters chattering and the nearby and howls of pain from beyond the cover showed that Squad Sepelus was on form. "FOR THE EMPEROR!" Bellowed brother Seargent Sepelus issuing a charge. Seargent Sepelus, freshly promoted after his display of combat prowess on many past missions had taken over a squad of marines, barley out of their carapace armour admittedly but space marines none the less and this was his first mission as their seargent.

The planet Bane had been under orkish attack for centuries, having the perfect climate for growing the blood thirsty Squigs that butchered anything not in full amour, and with the potential for becoming a mighty squggoth many stories high and bristling with teeth. The Guardsmen had, up until this point, been able to keep the ork hordes at bay but with a renewed attack support was needed, the Sable Swords answered the plea for help whilst re-equiping at Feragone a nearby forge world, and had entered the fray with a shower of drop pods containing almost a third of the chapters number.

Chainswords ripped through the un-armoured orks, as ferocious as they were, they were no match for the emperor's finest.
Space marines. 8ft tall genetically modified super soldiers, created for the single purpose of destroying the imperium's enemies, equipped with power armour, and guns that shot fist sized holes into a space marines enemies.

The seldom call of the orks retreat sounded, as single minded and blood thirsty as they were a canny warboss knows when his boyz are beat.
As the smoke cleared from the bolters fired at the retreating enemies the true amount of destruction became apparent...



Okay, first this was written really quickly (honestly), it's more of a test piece than anything else and I would love to hear your feedback about, good? bad? Why the hell are you doing this it's rubbish? I don't care what it is I want to hear it
