- prologue -All seven Marines intoned their litanies of purification while they donnedtheir sacred terminator armour.The Emperor in His infinite wisdom had honored them with a suicide mission,and their hearts were filled with righteousness and contempt for the filthy xeno scum that had to be cleansed.They were orbiting Galgamesh III, an Emperor's forsaken planet in the EasternFringe. They had to rescue a relic of the chapter, believed to go back to thesad and glorious days of the Horus Heresy. The planet was already in thehands of a Genestealer uprising and the Inquisition had sealed its destiny.Exterminatus.The bombing of the planet with massive virus bombs and deadly orbitalblasts was about to begin, and the Inquisitor cared little for the relicsof a chapter that had always been in bad terms with the Holy Order.The seven veterans were remains of a much larger strike force that hadarrived days before to save the planet, and they had failed. Only theseseven veterans remained of the 1st chapter company, the chapter itselfhad suffered horribly in the hands of the stealer horde, their numbersseverely crippled.The relic was the Terminator armour wore by Gigatron, Master of the Chapter,who had died hours before trying to hold an impossible position againsta Patriarch and its foul brood.The marines would be teleported to the compound where their Master had fallen,then each of them would have to accomplish a dangerous mission separately,all of them precisely timed, and only the success of them all would permitthe recovery of the precious suit of armour and the remains of Gigatron.If the mission was accomplished, they would be teleported back to theirBAttlecruiser, Damnation of the Heretic, but they knew they were upagainst impossible odds.As one, the marines sealed their helmets and approached the teleportingchamber.The Honour of the chapter was at stake. This blow had been too bad, maybefatal. Recovering the relic would grant the chapter a second chance in theeyes of the Emperor and the High Lords of Terra. Failure could doom thechapter to disbanding. This could not be allowed..
