So, thought it would be cool to see some kind of topic with awesome stuff that happened. What made you feel awesome, what glorious deeds did you do that deserve rememberance
Try to make your posts without spoilers if the adventure is official.. Or at least warn us.
As I made the post I'll go first… To avoid long posts I'll try to keep the info at the bare minimum
We just played a few sessions and are 5 players now, though at first we were 4. A Dark Angel Librarian, a Space Wolf Assault Marine, A Storm Warden Devestator and me playing an Ultramarine Tactical marine. As things progressed we were joined by a Blood Angel Apothecary.
We have only completed two missions so far and took a while before we got the rules properly. We haven't played any of the other 40k rpg's though most of us read the books and/or played the table top game. Our first mission sent us against Tau and their allies.
We didn't really understand the importance (or much at all) of squad mode and such so as we arrived at a slaughtered Imperial Guard station, we searched the place in groups of one. We quickly learned not to spread out too far as our space wolf suddenly got attacked by a Tau in a stealth suit. It hurt him badly and me being the only one nearby ran over there to help. He charged it and almost killed it as I came up and finished it off (my kill but it had around 1 hp left so he did most of the work ). The next round another Tau emerged from thin air and was about to shoot my friend. We decided I could spend my reaction to knock him down and take the hit, so i got pummeled by his automatic fire instead, which saved his ass but he still got a rocket on his hand tearing 3 fingers off and making him faint. We all agreed it was a pretty cool move by me though, and later learned there's a squad mode ability that does the same thing more or less Later on in that mission I managed to loose my leg after being pummeled by the Tau general, his two bodyguards and a swarm of firewarriors. I managed to kill the general before I finally went down though
Also during our last short mission I ended up in melee with a chaos assault marine who surprised me as I was alone (we all messed up there, forgetting him, keeping track of all others..) So after the second round I was down on 3-4 critical wounds but Duty beyond Death let me ignore the pain and continue without penalties. I realized however that as he was more or less on full health and I was pretty much going down the next time he acted that things were beyond saving. I was also the last line of defence on the "ground" as the rest of the team had kinda left me there.. Tactical mistake that won't happen again I hope.. And we also had an important relic thingy that was nearby that this guy would take if he got past me. So I took hold around the neck of our traitor with one hand, pulled out a krak with the other and activated it. Yelled FOR THE EMPEROR and blew my arm and his head of. Managed to trigger a few Righteous Fury as well so ended up doing 50+ damage. Pretty heroic if I might say so myself
