Airship down

Chapter 5

The forest canopy sped by under the hull of his faithful Ironclad 'Grim Lady'. Vaughm Stormmantle looked through his periscope, there in the distance he could see the monstrous tree surging through the canopy and then disappearing into the cloud cover. He must reach his cousin Beldak, there was danger coming... An Oruk warlord, violent and savage was making his way through the forest.

Suddenly Vaughm was shaken from his thoughts as a green explosion burst from the side of the 'Grim Lady'. He looked down to the forest, more green flaming balls were hurtling towards his ship.
"All hands on deck! Prepare to engage!" Shouted Vaughm as his Ironclad started to lose altitude.

Gonza the Mad cackled hysterically as he hurled arcane ball after ball at the stunty airship. His trusty guards Baz and Bol were grinning from the top of their squig mounts, the flicker of blood lust in their eyes. The plan had worked, and down fell the stunties, right into the squig feeding grounds... This going to be fun!
"Lads! Go bring me some beards! Our Boss demands 'em!" Screamed Gonza.

The latest battle saw King Beldak's cousin Vaughm crash into Grot occupied woods. Surrounded by squigs Vaughm and a handful of brave Kharadron Arkanauts had to hold out while King Beldak raced through the forest to reach them.
The Arkanauts sacrificed themselves to protect Vaughm long enough for Beldak and his Duardin to arrive and slay the squigs. Beldak himself accounted for no less than a dozen squigs. In the face of the might of Beldak and his band Gonza fled the field of battle to return to his Boss with news of what had happened...
