Oh, no. OH NO!!!
It hits Ulysses!!!! A Strength 8(!!!) hit causing 4 wounds at -4 to Ulysses' fashionable carapace armour!!!! Ulysses is gone!! He is gone. Ulysses, hero, survivor, man of myth and mayhem, main character of many, many games, campaigns and adventures, gone...And by a Melta Missile at that! Mouse, how could you??!!
Finnegan does not take it well. He rolls on the Monster Reaction Table. A 5. Raaargh! Frenzy and Hatred for the rest of the game. He immediately charges into the combat with Bert and Mykhul.
Speaking of Monster Reaction Tests, Tiny, overcome by the loss of Ace, also has to roll. He rolls a 1 - Stupidity! He then takes a Ld test which he fails (double 6's!). And he rolls yet one more 6!?! He can't do anything this turn.
The rest of my movement is taken by The Man From Gamma Gamma 4, Mordecai Plank and Gaxt all charging into the combat with Bert and the Ork Warboss.
The Squats and Reese stay where they are and take aim at the Orks by the farmhouse. In the shooting phase they shoot. Reese hits and wounds. (S3 Autogun) As for the Squats, only Mauser hits and wounds. (S4 Bolter)
Combat: Mouse, we'll have to meet for this combat...
P.S. - Please see Mouse's great turn 4 write- up here.
Here is The Mighty Man From Gamma Gamma 4's mighty wounding roll:
And the swirl of combat that takes out Mykhul:
Mordecai Plank, Bert the Zoat, The Man From Gamma Gamma 4, and Finnegan all follow-up 2inches towards Neel and his Missile Boy.
The remainder of Rikk's Pyros run towards the Orchard.
