Xarius checked his Storm Bolter again, making sure that he was ready to blast apart the Ork boarding rabble about to board the frigate Venturess of the Ultramarine Grand Fleet.
"Ten seconds until Ork raiders arrive." The electronic speakers placed throughout the ship said in the voice of one of the staff working at the Control Bridge; Urial was his name, Xarius knew him well. They had fought side by side at the battle of Macragge.
"Prepare to fire!" Xarius shouted to his men. The sound of an array of weapons being reloaded and checked echoed throughout the docking bay. Sergeant Xarius Hiffernius of Terminator Squad Vulture was in charge of the defence of the brand new battle-frigate Venturess of the Ultramarine grand fleet.
He heard it before he saw it. The loud roaring sound of an Ork boarding vessel, then it came into view; it was a huge lumbering mass of crudely bashed together metals of sorts, joined together in all manner of ways.
It crashed itself through the grav-shield, knocking off the walls and sending the Orks stupid enough to open the doors flying everywhere; getting shot to pieces all the while.
Once it had cleared the grav-shield and before it had the chance to try and land Orks were spewing out of hatches everywhere.
 "OPEN FIRE!" Xarius yelled, blasting an Ork to pieces before it hit the ground.
 By the time the ship had touched down, Orks were rushing out the main hatch firing whatever crude weapon they had.
 "With me my brothers!" Xarius yelled and almost instantly 5 marines were at his side.
 "Destroyed the hatch with the Kraks!" he yelled over the noise of the battle. Gradually they fought their ways to the hatch.
"Kraks on my mark. 1, 2, 3!"
3 of the grenades found their mark and blew a hole so big that the roof collapsed trapping all the Orks inside and the other 3 bounced off the wall beside the hatch and blew up turning a horde a horde of Gretchin' into a messy pile of goo!
But Xarius's moment of joy was short lived as out of the corner of is eye he saw a huge Big Mek ripping apart Combat Squad II. Drawing his sword he charged the brute and with a yell of "For Ultramar!" he swung his mighty sword at the brutes left arm (which it was using to slowly crush an Assault Marine. The perfectly crafted blade sliced right through the Mek just bellow its wrist. The Assault Marine fell to the ground as it yelled in pain. In a wild rage it swung wildly with its power claw but it was deflected with ease by the sword.
"Yous m-m-must d-die" it growled.
This seemed to be a signal to the surrounding Gretchin because the next thing Xarius knew there was about 30 of them crawling all over him, madly hacking with their tiny daggers. Xarius knew the only way to get them off was to literally jump on the ground and roll around, crushing the foul things; so that is exactly what he did, all the while defending the Mek's blows!
Once the Gretchin' were flat as paper Xarius got up on his knees just in time to block a blow that would have carved his head in two. As the stunned Big Mek pulled up his power-claw ready o strike again Xarius used all his strength to ram the Mek in the stomach and send it crashing to the ground. Xarius knew that he would not be able to keep it pinned for long so he head-butted it hard and although it hurt like hell he heard the satisfying sound of its nose breaking and the angry roar that followed. Raging the Big Mek threw off Xarius but his superior combat training caused him to instantly roll back up again. This time Xarius struck the blow first and with a flawless stroke he cut the Mek's arm straight off! With blood spraying everywhere the Ork threw a last swipe at Xarius that missed entirely and sent it tumbling to the ground. Xarius walked over to it and lifted his sword.
With the last remnants of the Ork boarding party being slayed around him Xarius thrust down his sword yelling
"For justice and for the Holy Emperor!"
