Commissar DaBank was tasked with guarding a new renovated air field for the Imperial Navy. It seems some sneaky Orks had managed to gain access to the air strip and damage some Navy Fighters and Bombers. This had been going on for several weeks when the “Last Chancers” were assigned night watch.
Commissar DaBank split his squad up and had 50% of his men stay out on the air field and the other 50% slept. DaBank chose first watch with his men. He called a meeting in the middle of the air strip and told his men they MUST protect the planes otherwise the Imperial Guard on the front lines do not have proper air support. Private U. Parts said, “Well, we never get air support!” Lt Dan pistol whipped Private Parts with the butt of his laspistol and then Private Parts finished with “Sir!” Commissar DaBank smiled and noted “Yes, we hardly ever get Air Support and when we do it seems they shoot out us but we have been chosen to help guard the planes from the Albino Ork”.
Sergeant Rock asked, “Albino Ork?” DaBank said “Yes, I said an Albino Ork, this Ork has managed to gain a small warband of Orks to follow him and they are trying to get a name for themselves.”
DaBank told the mean to spread out and cover the air strip.
At the same time the Albino Ork Nob was getting his lads ready for another night raid. He split his forces up to attack from two sides and attempt to catch the Imperial Guard troops by surprise. Unfortunately, for the Albion Ork he had not realized that the Last Chancers were on guard duty tonight.
The Orks had Kommandos with them and got in a bit closer than the rest of the Orks due to their sneakiness. The Last Chancers roamed the air strip in random directions to keep an eye out for the Orks.
It didn’t take long as the Orks made their attack on two fronts. The Last Chancers were taking incoming fire. The Last Chancers recovered and moved back to defensive positions. The sleeping Last Chancers stumbled out of their barracks and a few were still asleep and had a hard time spotting the enemy.
In a few minutes a couple of Orks charged from around the blast protector and charge one of the planes. Lt Dan said, “What the ……., they charged the planes and not us.” The Ork charged was lead by no other than the Nob Albion Ork.
Slugga and Lasgun fire erupted. Most shots were off the mark. Private George Michael (Flamer) had a bright idea of shooting the flamer at the Albino Ork but instead hit one of the planes and did some damage to it. Lt Dan knew better than to stand in front of a flamer and had already moved away from that area as he knew having a big flamer behind you could cause some pain.
The Albino Ork managed to destroy on plane and he was about ready to rally his boyz when some Catachan Fighters came in from behind on group of Orks. This caught everyone by surprise as no one knew which area they would be coming from. The Catachan fighters opened up with autoguns (they use autoguns as they make a lot of noise and the Orks appreciated and fear autoguns more than lasguns). The Catachans took down two Orks. The Orks were now in disarray as their plans were canceled out by the Catachans and now had to attack on a different front.
During the exchange of gun fire Private Parts was taken OOA but later recovered from his wounds, thanks to Hawkeye the Medic.
The onslaught continued and Sarge Paper threw a grenade at the Albion Nob the grenade was off the mark and bounced by the Ork and landed on one of the planes and did more damage. Sarge Rock who was next to Sarge Paper just shoot his head and rolled his eyes after he saw the plane was now more damaged. Sarge Rock yelled, “You damn fool, your supposed to be doing damage on the Orks not the planes we are suppose to be guarding.”
After a few more minutes of fighting the Orks had lost over 33% of their squad. Some of the other Orks began to fall back and the Ablion Nob had to make a decision should he continue or not? The Albion Ork retreated and fled the battle with his tail between his legs.
