"D'ya think we're safe in here?" asked a mysterious voice to the 'man' next to him.
"i hope so, those mooninites have been hasseling us for our rent for weeks!"
they heard a thumping, getting louder and louder, like the thumping of running feet.
"oh dear sweet sugary goodness, that must be the tax collectors again.."
the 10 figures scuttled as far as they could into a their cave, which was just a small crator.
"Quick men! while the beast is distracted! take cover in the holes!" hughes ordered.
one hundred imperial.... i mean alliance guard dived into the cover and aimed their lasguns at the bio titan.
"wait, HOLD YOUR FIRE!" rizzonos shouted. "reason #1 lasguns wont do anything against that foul beast! i mean, come on! Strength 3 AP - !! and reason #2 its turned around, maybe those imperial guys could use some help."
"sir that second one was a reason to fire surely?"
"i said imperials, hughes."
meanwhile the 10 mysterious beings were having a conversation between themselves.
"wow! more humans! should we talk to 'em?"
"no way, they're probably those imperials coming to look for us!"
"oh heck no! they aint takin me back!"
several of the guardsmen who had coincidentaly jumped into the same crator as them turned around.
"Sir, sir! Grey Knights are here!!! GREY KNIGHTS! Permission to shoot sir!!"
"WHAT?! OPEN FIRE!"
"WAIT! What do you mean 'open fire'?! we're your allies! the space marines!"
"shut up! you'll get us all killed!"
"Allies? Who are you really, you cant be space marines, You would know. We are the Old Earth Legion!"
"The wa? You mean the rebels that those mooninite people have been talking about?! DUDE! We have heard great stories about you guys!"
"You what? take off your helmets!"
The 10 'grey knights' took off their helmets to show themselves.
"Hmmm, where did you get that power armour?"
"Errrr. We stole it..."
"How in the name of buritos did you steal power armour from the inquisition?!"
"Beleive me, it was hard! We've been against the space marines ever since they came into production. We joined the guard, but they respect the space marines. but, since space marines, we have been killing everything that we dont understand! We could have been making allies, but the space marines refuse! the tau, the eldar. but no, they decide to make enemies instead. Well, i thought in my mind, space marines, today you have made a new enemy, humans."
"Exactly what we thought but, that doesnt answer my question, how did you steal 10 suits of grey knight power armour?"
"oh, that was easy, us guys are trained scouts."
"but dont they have psychic powers? how did they not know you were there?"
"we arent heretics. besides, just to clear this up. it was the other 100 odd suits we stole, for the guys, that was the hard part" they pointed to a large hole in the wall where there was atleast 100 suits of GK power armour and storm bolters, nemesis weapons, and even the odd incinerator or psycannon.
"There are more of you? where?!"
"most of them got arrested for not paying their rent."
"and one more question, how did you get here?"
"many of the guys were pilots, We managed to steal several valkeries whilst on a resque mission for the marines."
"right" said rizzonos as he reloaded his pistol, this started off a chain reactio as all of the other guardsmen reloaded their guns. "Me, Allen, Rensfeild, Lore, Eusten and you guys will go and find those soldiers. Anyone who is trained to use a tank, or to use heavy weapons, proceed to the drop zone imediately, any other remaining troops, get that power armour on, and help out those vipers! GO GO GO!"
The Guardsmen all got to their tasks right away, swarming out of the crators like the tyranids themselves...]
