>>29098333>>29098307>>29098278Movement Updated, please confirm. All ships are still out of range.Boarding torpedoes struck the Disintegrator on its front armour as it moved into them (mandatory 10 move before being able to turn).Skargan, please roll 2d100 for your turrets, marine players, please roll Xd100 after skargan's roll where X = 6 minus however many 50+'s skargan rolls. Any 85+ then roll a d6 each. And the critical effect shall be applied.All reloads successful. Firestorm's additional speed successful.Do you wish to launch Ordnance Skargan?
Rolled 3, 18 = 21>>29098446BATTLE STATIONS! DESTROY BOARDING TORPEDOES!Map confirmed. No thank you, I can't see hitting anything from this angle.
Rolled 67, 23, 6, 78, 36, 9 = 219>>29098535Boarding Parties!
>>29098557As no torps strike, the boarding torps will turn 45 degrees Starboard before moving, so they'll head down.
>>29098557>>29098601None of your boarding torpedoes could find sufficient gaps in the Disintegrators formidable armoured prow. Lucky to escape with their lives, the torpedoes carry on past the ship.Space Marine Turn.
>>29098622Forgot to update Imperial torpedoes.
Rolled 23Aspera Dominus will advance its full 20 while using the lock on order (the roll on this post), our weapon batteries will fire on the lunar which is at range 43 and our bombardment cannons will shoot the frigate.
>>29098686Movement made, ranges confirmed. Disintegrator is 'Closing'. It is beyond 30. Therefore the weapons batteries roll 6d100 against it's 85+ front armour.Firestorm frigate is 'Closing'. Therefore the Bombardment cannons roll 4d100. Requiring 50+ to cause damage.Lock-on successful. You may re-roll any failures.

Rolled 6, 3 = 9>>29098887>>29098850>>29098784The terrifying Melta Warheads of the Bombardment Cannons tear through the Frigate. Stripping its shield and Damage Point. Rolling 2d6, on 9+ it is unsalvageable.Two of the Weapons battery shots strike true. Stripping both of the Disintegrator's shields. Unfortunately they will be raised again by the time we get to fire once more. But it should sow some panic amongst the crew and hinder special orders (-10 to Ld for next turn, negated by having +10 due to Aspera being on orders).How do you wish the boarding torpedoes to move?Do you wish to launch any further ordnance?
Ordnance Orders:Boarding torps: 45 degree turn StarboardFighter wing: move with Aspera and position between Lunar.
>>29098933Ordnance movements made>>29098923The Frigate erupts in an explosion as its main reactor core detonates. Though not large enough to threaten enemy ships, the Frigate ceases to exist. It will never fly again.
>>29098979Posting map.Skargan's turn.
>>29098994Forgot to add debris field from exploded frigate. This will move shots passing through it one column to the right on the gunnery table.
Rolled 25>>29098994Terrible devastation that Aspera Dominus brought upon 4th Ecclesiastic fleet has shaken Preacher-Bishop Dreifus to his rotten core. Despite his brazen attitude, inside he is a Coward and he has to roll his willpower to continue fighting. He has to roll:WP: 25Modifier (+10) HatredModifier (+10) AmbitionModifier (-10) Coward===Haran Dreifus must roll below 35 to maintain cool head and if he rolls above 70, he will start to panic.
Rolled 83, 62, 84 = 229>>29099105>Mere scratch. Let's turn around and show them how we deal with heretics in these parts!Armageddon-class Battlecruiser "Reverent spirit will move forward at full speed and if it gets within range, will open broadsides fire.Disintegrator will launch torpedoes, turn 45* starboard and move forward, trying to hide behind debris field. if it gets within range, it will open fire.Revolting Frigate:Officers: 33Crew: 53Rolling for revolt(dice 1 and dice 2)Rolling dice 3 to reload ordinance aboard Disintegrator.

It seems crew revolt against their officers is turning for the worse...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqlCayKXTUI
>>29099221Movements made.All of the Reverent Spirit's weapons are in range.It may roll 4d100 Lances, requiring 50+ to do damage.Aspera Dominus is abeam, and further than 30, so reverent spirit may roll 1d100, for weapons batteries. Requiring 85+.Disintegrator's torpedoes are intercepted by the Fighter squadron and destroyed.

>>29099477Boarding torps turn 45 Starboard once again.
>>29099477>>29099515One of the lances strikes true and dissolves one of the Aspera Dominus' shields. Only to have the other 2 spring up and close the gap.Map updated, Space Marine turn.
Rolled 19Aspera Dominus will advance its minimum distance of ten and use the special order "Lock on" and then fire on the lunar cruiser with its everything
>>29099557Map updated.Aspera Dominus may bring 12 weapons batteries and 8 bombardment cannons to the disintegrator. Firing at 'abeam', gives 4d100 weapons battery shots, requiring 65+.And 3d100 bombardment cannon shots, requiring 50+.Let fly.

One bombardment canno nshot strips the second, and another bombardment cannon shatters through the Disintgrators side and detonates its deadly melta package. 1 damage point inflicted, roll d100, 50+ required for critical effect.

Rolled 95, 32, 94, 48, 23 = 292>>29099794no wonder that your ship is called Aspera Dominus, it's because Emperor is turning in his grave while looking at your space combat skills.
>>29099880Hey, look at your fleet...oh wait, it's a debris field, heretic.Pic related: your mom
>>29099910HEY! Let's keep the mothers out of this.
Rolled 42>>29099794Use all known IM, Navy & Emergency frequencies to broadcast the following:"This Chapter Master of the Ghosts of Retribution to the officers and crews of the remaining '4th Ecclesiastic Fleet'. Your attack upon loyal Imperial citizens, Protheran refugees and our Chapter will not go unpunished, but in the name of the Emperor we vow that any ships that surrender or cast off their heretical commanding officers will only have their Commanding Officers judged by the Emperor and the Inquisition. Cease this act of Sedition, Heresy, and Betrayal against The Emperor's Astartes and his Imperium immediately and those crews that act in his name will be lauded for their faith across the Sector and beyond!"
Ordnance orders:Boarding Torps: 45 to Starboard! (again!)Attack Craft: Active fighters move to protect Aspera's aft/port line.Launch Thunderhawks & remaining fighters, attack Lunar Cruiser. Full marine complement (60)
>>29100122Currently Active fighters' position adjusted.Combined squadron of 1xThunderhawks and 1xFighters are launched and reach Disintegrator in the same turn.Skargan, you have 2d100, each 50+ will remove a squadron, fighters will be removed first (they act as escorts).
>>29100187Forgot to move torpedoes.
Rolled 71, 26 = 97>>29100057Haran Dreifus also makes a statement of his own:>Soldiers, crewmen, serfs and nobles alike, listen to me. I was invested with Ecclesiastic power by High Cardinal Astrobelus Kest himself to carry out the acts of Faith in the name of the Emperor and his flock. Rolling for reactions. We are paying a heavy price in this battle, it is true, but that is not a reason to turn to Heresy for relief. We are here on a mission from Him on Terra and we shall carry it out no matter the cost! If those dogs finally want to speak with us, I will give them one last chance to surrender - if they love the Emperor, they will have nothing to fear! Tell me, my friends, am I wrong!?As Dreifus is a skilled orator, turning his men from him will be a very hard task. Die 1 is for Reverent spirit(success below 2), die 2 is for Disintegrator (success below 8).
Rolled 74, 91 = 165>>29100187AA defence!
Rolled 76, 30 = 106>>29100258"High Cardinal Astrobelus Kest would never appoint a coward that desecrated St. Evangelions' Cathedral with his own urine after being accused of his cowardace by Lord Alexander Kerr! Do not sully the High Cardinal's name and the faith of these men with your lies, you piss-soaked cur!"
>>29100383Fighter squadron driven off for repairs!Thunderhawk squadron suffering intense fire. Needs to pass its 50+ inv. save to make it through the fire, otherwise they must flee back to the Aspera Dominus for repairs.
Rolled 43>>29100442Thunderhawks soldier on!
