Session 16: The Last Stand – More than a Mindless Horde (Part 3)
The Imperial forces with the aid of 6 space marines laid waste to thousands of Hormagaunts while under fire from an equal number of Termagants. While victorious a signficant amount of ammo was expended to hold the enemy forces at bay. But the real purpose of the enemy was discovered when a brood of Genestealers led by a Broodlord were spotted by Brother Malloc. At the same time, back in the defensive holdouts where Brother Gregor was keeping the PDF rallied he took note of suspicious behavior from a small element of the PDF. Suspicious of chaos infiltation he noticed small tell-tale signs of broodspawn. Brother Fugis meanwhile having just called in the flight of Thunderbolts took note of Genestealer bodies left behind the combined fire of Heavy Assault Cannons and the Thunderbolt run; he realized that the Tyranids were sending in parties of Genestealers under cover of the Hormagaunt rush to take out the defenses.
