>>16500082>With a blinding blast of red light, the Assault Marine's jump-pack went critical and its fuel cells detonated, firing him down
towards the ground like a giant bolter shell. Even from where he was standing, Gabriel could see the Marine working to release
the grenades that were clipped around his belt, flinging them down into the formation of eldar below him even as he rocketed
down towards them. The disciplined aliens seemed unphased for a fraction of a second, holding their firing vectors until they
realised what was about to happen.Then, as the xenos creatures began to scatter away from the Wave Serpents, the string of
grenades smacked into the ground and detonated all at once, blowing a huge crater into the desert and rocking the nearest Wave
Serpent. >In an instant, the Marine's jump-pack roared down towards the vehicle, spiralling on its axis now that it had been
jettisoned by the Marine himself, until it punched heavily into the gunnery cockpit on top of the Wave Serpent, blowing it clean
off the vehicle and engulfing the whole thing in a giant red fireball. The Marine himself ploughed down into the desert nearby.
With a roar, Gabriel snatched his attention away from the heroics of his Marine and spun on his heel, always inspired by the
exploits of his men.
