I've been a bit slack with the writing recently, so finally here it is for those of you that have followed the series throughout. (all 3 of you...) Thanks for staying with it.
Grabnutz and Noggin 5: The Waaagh in Full Swing
Mere seconds after Marshall Hallem's words, the roar of the Orks filled every Space Marines mind. Quickly and efficiently they formed battle lines, centred around the massive form of a Land Raider Crusader, and the Dreadnought, disregarding the writhing creature on its carapace.
Bolters were raised, sightings were checked, blades were loosened in their sheathes. Uttering their sacred vows together, the Black Templars redied for war.
"Oooo.. Look at dat! Its a biggun' innit!" Slobbered SkrooLooze, gesturing to the Crusader, a mad glint in his one non-bionik eye. His left, mechanised, eye was built for night vision, but that is when the Mek slept, being scared of the dark.
Grabnutz was hopping with the urge to fight, not an easy feat in Mega Armour, but he managed it quite impressively.
The boyz couldn't be restrained for much longer, so Grabnutz decided to start the proceedings with he pre-arranged signal.
The Grots on the Big Gunz hammered several levers, and the beams of energy flew into life with a sharp crackling sound, off towards the marine ranks. Another sound like a whipcrack was heard as the beams lashed at the marines, throwing them to the floor, armour smouldering with the energy. They did not rise again.
"HAHAA!" Grabnutz cried joyously, "Dey's workin' then! Righ' Ladz, CHARGE, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHHHHHHHHHHH"
The call was taken up by each and every ork, amplifying the sound a hundred times more. The tide poured from the ridge toward the Black Armoured wall of marines. The hard thumps of their feet mingling with the clanking and groaning of the Kans.
"Steady men" called Sargeant Cascarne, "Remember, the xenos is a blight on this world, purge it lest it take us all!" and when the forthcoming tide swept closer, his voice was echoed across the lines: "SUFFER NOT THE ALIEN"
As one, the sargeants roared "SPACE MARINES, OPEN FIRE"
The charge was gathering momentum, they could almost taste 'ummie in anticipation of what would follow. Grabnutz could make out a figure raising his chainsword, and he heard the words roared from the Templar lines, followed by the crack, and flash, of bolter fire.
several boyz started stumbling, as bits of them were blown away, but most just laughed with joy, and kept going, unheeding the leaden death flying past their ears.
they were 30 feet away now, 20 feet, 15, and several more had been blown to bits. A dim thought registered in Grabnutz mind, and he was enraged.
"HEY, DEY CALLED US ALEYONS!!!"
The call of the Waaagh chorused through the ork charge once more.
The Dreadnought blasted the ground away as its lascannon shot through the orks. Its weapon wasn't suited to these targets, so it seeked out something more worthy of its attention. Seeing the Big Gun battery, the ancient warrior aligned his right arm, and shot blue death at the Zzap guns. The Grots' eyes were filled with the glare, and they were vapourised as the guns caught the impact, and scattered themselves over a wide area.
The Crusader's guns were glowing with the friction of unleashing round after round into the sea of green. Its Machine Spirit was pleased, it was unleashing the Emperors Holy Wrath upon the vile xenos. The living marine captain inside the armoured hull saw a large, overweight figure, with a bionik eye come up on the visuals, clutching a cylinder of some kind. He smiled to himself, he had seen stikkbomz in use before, and knew his shell of ceramite and adamantium was far more than capable of withstanding such crude technollogy.
The Orks poured over and around the Marines, choppas singing through the air, carving bloody ruin amongst the Templars, heedless of the heavy casualties they were taking themselves.
SkrooLooze led a small group towards the crusader, something they would not normally be happy about, but they were more than a little drunk. He pulled out a very large stikkbomb. One of his companions laughed.
"Deys rubbishy does are mayteee!"
"Nar, HA! HAHAHAHAHA! You wait you! Dese are very... SPECIAL!!!!"
He lunged at the hull, clamping the bomb between the tracks and the ramp.
Pulling his companions to the floor, he awaited the results of his most potent of home made products.
As this has gone on longer than I expected, I'll close now, and bring you the rest in another episode. Hope you enjoyed it!
As always your responses and opinions are welcome, just to let me know that its worth writing.

You are quite the artist when it comes to Ork fluff. I've enjoyed all of your previous works, too.

You have wrote this quiet well, and have balanced it nicely. I haven't read the rest of your work, but I'm sure it must be pretty good. Do continue to write these, as it is an enjoyable read and fluff is one of the things that makes 40k what it is. Cheers,
So you don't know the plot???
I used to have a link to all of my previous episodes as my sig, but since they stole the search function, you have to look through the whole forum

That doesn't matter, the section is good enough as it is. Pleasure to read, even without the full story line,
great stuff. you make me start an ork army. keep it up
Forget your past life. From this day on you are simply a Dark Angel, nothing else is of consequence. The chapter is all that matters.
A good general does not lead an army to destruction just because he knows it will follow
* basks in the glow of good ork fluff.
Keep on truck'n........
