With the Ambush well and truly sprung the Guardians attempted to push through. The lone survivor of the flamer attack spun around and emptied a clip at the daemons. However given their propensity at movement he failed to injure even one of the daemons. A second combat squad disembarked and along with the vindicator took the daemon prince and the spawn under tremendous fire. Colzat laughed as the shots failed to hurt him. His haunting laughter echoing across the battlefield.
The lone Blood reaper continued to hack and slash at the two remaining marines. Only their superhuman reflexes kept them from falling to the blood reaper as they repeatedly dodged out of the way unable to land a single blow in return.
From the warp Colzat now summoned new aid using the blood of the fallen to do so. A green mist formed behind the marine vindicator and out of it shambled plaugebearers. Their arrival completed the encirclement of the Guardian chapter task force.
Meanwhile with the sound of howling five fleshhounds leapt through the warp and into reality behind on of the rhinos. Their snarls putting all on notice as to their intent.
Meanwhile the second unit of bloodletters swarmed the two Guardian marines fighting the lone blood reaper. With a fury of blades the two marines were hacked to pieces and the bloodletters rushed to join the fleshhounds on the hunt.
The lone survivor of the flamer attack watched as the creatures leapt over him heading towards the recently dismounted squad before he could shout a warning he saw the winged spawn hurtling towards him. he snapped off a short burst just missing the beast as it slammed into him. His armor held but the serpent like thing was quick, too quick for him to get a clean shot off and so he ducked and dodged the beast trying franticly to gain an opening with which to kill it.
The three flamers jumped behind the dismounted marines. No sooner did the squad leader Brother Sergeant Kuzov begin to turn his head then his squad was engulfed in flames. Kuzov felt himself thrown back as men in his squad, his brothers threw themselves in front of the flames in an effort to spare their heroic sergeant. As the flames dissipated only Kuzov remained.
Brother Sergeant Kuzov started to turn to gun down the abominations when suddenly Colzat rushed at him. With lightning quickness Colzat thrust the tip of the blade through Kuzov an uttered the invocation. Kuzov started to scream but his cries were cut short as his mind and body mutated around him leaving only a mindless serpentine spawn forever tied to Colzat's will. Colzat roared in triumph, with the new asartes blood he could unleash a daemonic tide to swamp this entire moon.
