>Their leader looks around confused for a bit before his eyes find my men.
>He then stomps over and demands our help slaying the beast.
>uhhhh, why the frak are you coming to us?
1. We don't have fully sealed suits of power armor.
2. We aren't genetically modified super soldiers.
3. We don't have bolters.
4. We don't have any vehicles.
5. We aren't from an organization that was specifically founded to fight xeno horrors.
6. We were here to exterminate some necrons (and we failed at that) not slay a kaiju.
7. We're a relatively small armored regiment that just took losses.

“We have taken the liberate of fishing out and restoring this honorable fallen battle brother for you. Though it was no easy task, when we found him many of his circuits were fried, his chassis was dented from impacts and ocean pressure. Along with being burned with acid and and the leviathan’s breath weapon. Even his life support system had seemingly failed. Yet through some miracle he managed to cling to life long enough for us to fix him. Almost like he had some kind of unknowable force keeping him alive.”
