Well, this is useless,
thought McTavish, looking at the control panel. Pulling out a couple of Melta bombs, he strapped them to various flammable-looking places and set them with a 10 second timer. Pulling the door release (at least that control was obvious), he leapt out and sprinted towards two of the Tau. He didn't bother looking round at when the Skyray blew up, and so missed the sight of a shard of metal slamming into one of the drones and sending it sparking into the ground.
Bringing his rifle to bear, he started firing at the warriors; one had the markings of a Shas'ui. Unfortunately his comrade saw him aiming and shoved the officer out of the way, getting a large burnt hole in his chestplate for his bravery. A las-shot came from the hill as Maria tried to finish McTavish's job, but the Shas'ui was saved by his armour.
Wexler dived into a prone position to better increase his odds of hitting the distant targets, and let off a long burst of fire from his Heavy Bolter at the other pair of advancing Tau. The fist sized rounds easily punched through the first warriors armour, and after a longer burst of sustained fire the other fell too, gore flying as a bolt shattered his skull. Dismayed at the sudden lack of enemies, Steve began trying to cover the distance to the storm trooper sergeant.
Hertius ducked the drones fire and smashed one out of the sky with his axe. The other crashed into him, the collision sending both spinning. The damn frisbee kept moving evading all of Hertius's attempts to disassemble it.
The gun drone that had survive the skyray's demise flew in pursuit of McTavish, but he was more preoccupied with the Shas'ui. The xenos was pointing his carbine at him, but wasn't firing for some reason... McTavish looked down at the little green dots on his chest. This was gonna suck.
Four more warriors rounded the wreckage, and they and the drone opened fire. McTavish ducked and dodged as best as he could, but he still got hit several times and it was only by the Emperor's divine will that he survived with only minor burns. His armour certainly wasn't looking it's best though, as chunks had been blasted out of it and part of it was actually on fire.
Devilfish has lost a hull point and been immobilised. Skyray exploded.
All Tau forces are aware, as the alarm was raised and everyone passed their leadership tests.
Hertius had to use 1 Narrative point to pass an armour save (drones are apparently good in melee). McTavish had to use 2 points to survive all the fire he took. Wexler used a narrative point to use the Emplaced Fire heroic action, and Maria used a point to re-roll a to-wound roll on the shas'ui. She still failed.
Pretty irrelevant, but the Tau now have 8 Klaxon counters.
