Stompa, duz zakly wot it sez on da tin!

Another Saturday has passed, and once again victory was snatched from me. This time an Ork Stompa was my downfall, one ten man squad a devastator squad and two dreadnoughts, one armed with a twin linked lascannon and a missile launcher, the other carried a plasma cannon and a missile launcher, not that they helped much. I was pretty much doomed from the roll off. I rolled a 1, my opponent rolled higher, thus the trend was set. on his first turn the Stompa opened up with the Supa-gatla and that was pretty much the end of it. heavy fire from this terrible weapon destroyed one Dreadnought then proceeded on to the first squad, removing four of its number. the weapon was then bought to bear on the dev squad obliterating three men. the other two stood their ground, seeming unfazed by the loss of their comrades. moments later i lost the second Dreadnought. once again the hot metal of Orkish gatla fire rained down upon the tac squad sending another three men to the Emperors grace. the remainder of the squad held their ground in the face of overwhelming odds. another round of red hot death finished of the dev Squad and then the gun fell silent. a moments relent and then the stompas Deth Kannon put an end to this all too brief skirmish. Fortunately i was not alone on this day of infamy. The Stompa went on to decimate Smiffys Chaos force.

despite everything that’s said about them the Orks know how to wield death, it’s almost an art form for them. If i have the misfortune to encounter another of these metal monstrosities, I shall unleash the full force of the Chapter Aurelius and bring it down with lascannon and plasma fire,

I have sacrificed too many men. I've made too many compromises already; too many retreats. They invade our space, and we fall back. They destroy entire worlds, and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done
