The Second Vault / Eye of the Beholder

Blood Angels. 
Another Librarian. 
Vault 681 must be reached.
Weren't we taxed enough already?
We must accept our fate as the Changer declares it.
I'd rather have the angels accept their fate, daemon.
Achieve this and the day will be ours.
Let's make it quick then.

An acid rainstorm?
An amusing twist in the Changer's scheme.
That's very nice. You know it's causing warp interference, right?
A challenge presented to us by Fate itself.
You know it will be harder for us to manifest, right?
The Scheming One tests our endurance.
 You know you're not actually helping, right?

Ok, their transports are blown and their numbers significantly reduced.
You've done your best.
Thanks, but I doubt we'll be able to stall them long enough for the troops to reach the vault.
The Changer knows the value of sacrifice best of all.
Good. 'Cause where this is going, he's going to see a lot more of it. 
He knows.
The unit behind us won't make it and we don't have much time left ourself.
He will welcome us with open arms.
Let's hope we're worth it then.
The Lord of Fate has no use for hope.

"Well... fuck." Karth Doomfist voxed out loud as the enemy librarian flung The Shadowcursed back into the warp. It took him a moment to realise his squad had stopped firing, in awe of the supernatural fenomenon as they were. "Keep firing, you jackasses!" He yelled again through the vox. Before the squad could properly target their foes, the roar of Blood Angel jump packs was already upon them. "Raaaargh! Damn you fools! I hate you all!" Karth roared as he completely lost his marbles after realising how stupid his squad had been. They were so entranced by the battle between the Daemon and the librarian that, before they realised things weren't going their way, they had lost their only chance to escape.

Like a cornered beast, a primal instinct seemed to sieze Doomfist as he recklessly flung himself at the aproaching librarian and immediately got his head chopped off. The expression on Karth's face, as it soared through the stormy air, was one of rabid astonishment. The last thing his eyes had seen was his own powerfist, punching through a librarian's skull.

So ends another episode of Daan's Dissapointing Battle Results. A loss against Michael's Blood Angels was suffered in an Annihilation mission last night. Still a pretty fun battle though. At least the acid rain mechanic was kinda fun (S2 AP3 hit to every model not in cover).

As an excuse for the lack of updates, I spent the last few weeks going through some pretty life changing events. I finally graduated from college (I'm a Bachelor of Science now) and I got my first car. Next on the list is finding a job. Something I've been told won't be the cake walk it should have been due to the current business climate blah blah blah. Further updates on the situation as it develops. In the meantime I kinda like not having to work all day for once and have finally found some time to catch up on all the anime, games and series I've been neglecting with my graduation.

"Quick! To the Daanmobile!"
As for 40k... Next week is Battle of the Clubs. I still need to paint a lot of terminators. I might post progress pics later this week, I might not. I will definately try and give a post-Battle of the Clubs report next week. Stay tuned.

Death to the False Emperor!
