We followed as best we could, and had camped in some trees as Barney and mob Betty spotted a couple of patrolling rhinos
As they advanced on the marines, issuing threats, insults and challenges, we hid in some woods to watch events unfold. The marines started to disembark and react to the threat, when they were joined by a third rhino... a suspiciously slow moving rhino... whose engine didn't so much growl as go "BRUM BRUM"
|Well met, broth... wait a minute...|
Unable to use their guns for fear of killing their allies in the confusion (and there seemed to be a lot more allies than they set out with) the other squad of marines pitch in to the fight.
Even the weakest members of the group threw themselves into the thick of the fighting for lack of anything better to do.
Thankfully, the marines got the better of the fight, and we made our presence known to them. This had the added benefit of allowing the severely beaten Orks to make good their withdrawal before the marines could issue the coup de grace. Whilst we don't want to see humanitys finest warriors brought low, we also don't wish to see the subjects of our documentary exterminated over a misunderstanding.
Speaking to the sergeant, it became clear that we were the reason the Blood Angels were there. They had no record of ever having been to this planet before, and could not explain the events we had heard of. They would not have given it any credit at all, were it not for the fact that we had pictures of the ID tag that fell from the vehicle that disappeared. The vehicle in question was there in front of me, and had rolled off an STC production line a mere couple of weeks before. I inspected the vehicle and apart from the tribes relic being clearly well aged, they were a match. What strange occurrences can explain this? For now, we just don't know...
