A cold breeze blows down from the city, whiping up the flames on the gate house wreckage and sending the hanging lanterns swaying. The Arbiters fan out and advance taking up covered poistions, and setting up a watch in all directions at once. Lazerus and Stig slowly advance on the ruined gate house. Lucius steps into the gate way, kneels down and studies the shell casings. Sila and Kron bring up the rear staying in the shadows and hugging cover.

"Several types of low grade auto guns and stubbers. A bolter... and an Astartes grade assault cannon, mars pattern." He mumbles as he picks through the brass.

The black waves slap loudly at the broken slats of the dock.

The gate house environs are deserted. The Arbiters move up past Lucius and through the gate spreading out on the main avenue beyond.

Everyone cautiously follows them in. The chill breeze continues to fan the flames and swing the lantern ropes. The swaying light cast jagged leaping shadows on the damp cobble stone street. The city is silent, but for the sounds of the wind and the creak of a loose shutter a block away, a rat skittering in a nearby drain pipe, and the skuff of the groups boots on the street.

When Lazerus gives the all clear, the Arbiter team moves on ahead, leap frogging each other as they keep their weapons up and trained on the doorways and shadows ahead. Lazerus and Stig follow them up, with Lucius, Sila and Kron, heads low, bring up the rear.

A side door on a rough metal warehouse creaks open small crack, drawing the full attention of every gun in the party.

"Psst! Psst! Get off the street! They are still here! They are still out there!" Calls a hushed voice from the doorway crack which hastily closes again.

Suddenly a great metallic screech sound from the cross roads ahead. A massive shape storms out of the side street and into the swaying lantern light. Three meters tall at the shoulder the thing looks like a giant metal bull. It's legs made up of hydraulic pistons and steel, with huge metal spikes for lower legs. Their blacken tips digging gouges in the road stones. The beast has no head to speak of but a ring of massive blades surrounds a savage looking maw filled with sharp flickering tongues. The creatures entire skin, oxide red, with patches of black corrosion, is carved with green glowing ruins of a sinister design. They crawl and shift over the surface with malignant intent. Dark fumes hiss from vents in the shoulders and thick ropey oil drips from it's jaws. The things maw draws wide and the daemonic machine screeching rolls over you, shaking your bones, and making your teeth hurt. It's shoulder vent puff menacingly and it takes a step towards you.

Lucious will look up, stare for a second... take a mental picture of the creature, then start to take pot shots at the beast while standing with the arbites.

"Cover! Fire at will!" Lazerus will bellow. He and Stig move as quickly as they can to opposite sides of the street and open fire at the creature.

Sila tries the door and windows of the nearest house, frantically trying to get in in. If she does, she'll try to get to a second floor window and fire at the monstrosity.

The team scatters. Lucius runs to the warehouse door finding it closed and either barred from the inside or someone is holding it shut. Lucius pounds on the door demanding sanctuary. Sila, followed closely by Kron, runs across the street and tries a warehouse door at random it slides open on a metal track, and they duck inside. Lazerus and Stig take up positions on opposite sides of the street grabbing cover behind a pile of metal crates and a large empty hand cart respectively. They fire their weapons scoring hits along the creatures blackened armored shoulders. The Arbiters already spread out and in cover open up with a withering hail of fire. The great smoking machine beast rear up under the barrage and shrieks in rage, the las bolts and auto gun fire scarring it's metal hide.

The beast stomps the earth, shattering cobbles with it's massive spike feet, and charges the nearest arbiters. Fixte and Turkle, the flamer team with out a flamer, the two men are squatted down behind a bit of crumbling stone wall. The beast crashes through the wall, snatching Fixte up in it's ruthless bladed jaws. Fixte just comes apart in a flash of scything steel and a burst of red. Turkle repeatedly slams his rifle butt against the beasts flank and gets a long pointed fore leg stabbed down through the top of his chest, for his trouble.

The beast shrieks again. The sound is like hot needles in your ears and you can feel warm blood running from them.

Inside the warehouse:

Sila and Kron, in the light from Silas lamp pack, pick their way through aisles of battered crates and baskets stacked to the ceiling, searching for stairs up or another way out.

Lucious seeing the door bared shut, will take out his pistol and start to fire onto the creature

"Frag out!" Lazerus will bellow as he takes a grenade from his belt and hurls it at the creature. Stig will also hurl a frag grenade at the creature.

Lucius turns and opens fire with his las pistol as the beast stomps Turkle into a ragged bloody heap. Shots from the remaining arbiters pepper it's thick metallic hide. The grenades from Lazerus and Stig land at it's feet and detonate. The roaring blasts disintegrate the low wall and throw the great creature though the flimsy metal wall of the adjoining warehouse. The beast disappears into the building in a cloud of smoke and dust.

Inside the warehouse:

Sila and Kron near the rear of the building, the beam of their lamp reveals a rickety stairway to a second floor. The whole building shakes as the front wall caves in and something huge and fuming crashes inside smashing over crates and toppling stacks of goods. Kron pushes Sila towards the stairs as the raging beast, it's left flank split open showing a ragged wound dripping thick greasy blood and decorated with jagged bits of shrapnel. The creature rolls to it's feet, crushing more boxes and begins rampaging through the warehouse destroying everything in it's path.

"Make sure it's dead!" Lazerus will yell. Lazerus and Stig will move up rapidly and follow the beast inside. Firing as soon as they see the beast.
