<P style="MARGIN-LEFT: 10px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 10px" align=justify><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>The Hive Tyrant roared and furiously flapped its wings gaining altitude and searching for a spot to perch and rain down its barb strangler fire.  A nearby tower made the perfect location and it buckled slightly under the beasts weight. Synapse creatures directed the rest of the assault forward toward the Eldar front lines. Three Ravengers quickly slithered in an attempt to flank the bunched Eldar forces. Swarms of Gaunts moved in quickly towards the waiting Guardians in the hopes of overrunning their position. From the rear of their location, several mutant Gaunts fired off their Venom cannons felling several lightly armoured Guardians and softening the resistance.  The Barb Stranger of the Hive Tyrant struck deeply into the squad taking another three Guardians to their death. Warriors followed a squad of Gaunts around the other side of the battlefield towards an awaiting Howling Banshee Assault. The Hive Tyrant flashed its mangled teeth in a twisted grin at the thought of the coming slaughter.</FONT></P>

<P style="MARGIN-LEFT: 10px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 10px" align=justify><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>The Farseer surveyed the rushing hoard and prepared to relay his orders. The Farseer's commands flashed into the mind of the Falcon pilot as he immediately fired up the tank's engines and shot off to meet the flanking Raveners. The Howling Banshee Exarch screamed wildly as she led her troops forward to hold off the Gaunt assault. The Farseer could see their error from his position and sensing that they would soon be overrun, he prepared reinforcements.  Within moments the lumbering Wraithlord whirled to motion and charged in behind the Banshees, its Star Cannon tearing through the Gaunt assault. The heavily armed Wave Serpent roared to life and began its movements towards the western front in the hopes of unloading its deadly cargo. The Falcon's pulse laser roared to life firing one shot at the massive Hive Tyrant and wounding it, blowing through its exoskeleton. Its Bright Lance shot struck the beast in the head but failed to wound. The Wave Serpents twin-linked Star Cannons tore into a nearby Gaunt squad blowing three of them to pieces. The Farseer now saw his opportunity to strike, motioning to the nearby Dark Reaper squad. Their armour whirled to life bracing itself on the nearby terrain, preparing to fire. The Farseer braced his runes and peered into the immediate future, sensing the enemies movement, he directed the Dark Reapers fire with a wave of his Singing Spear. The Reaper Launchers rained death upon the already injured Gaunt squad cutting their numbers in half.  The War Walker made haste and fired off its Star Cannons as well cutting down several Tyrainds. Its bright lance blast struck the Hive Tyrant yet again, wounding it. The Farseer grinned beneath his Ghosthelm, the tides <BR>of victory had quickly turned in their favor. He watched in delight as the Avatar charged forward to meet the remaining Gaunts.</FONT></P>

<P style="MARGIN-LEFT: 10px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 10px" align=justify><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>The wounded Hive Tyrant desperately attempted to reassemble and recoordinate his forces. He attempted to finish the Guardian squad with yet another Barb Strangler blast but wounded only two. The squad had lost over half its members but led by their awesome Avatar, they knew no fear. The Raveners now made their assault run on the Falcon, leaping over the nearby river and swinging their blades wildly at the passing tank. Their swipes fell short as the Falcon roared past. Ripper swarm scuttled forward to meet the Avatar in a hopeless battle yet without fear. A Zoanthrope leaped onto a nearby hill and sent a psychic blast at a nearby Wave Serpent, tearing off its twin-linked Star Cannons. The western Gaunt force assaulted the underpowered Banshees, wiping out the squad.</FONT></P>

<P style="MARGIN-LEFT: 10px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 10px" align=justify><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>The Farseer mourned at the loss of his Banshees but quickly focused at the task at hand. The war had evened out but he now had the opportunity to turn it around. He again guided his Dark Reapers, allowing them to annihilate the remaining Gaunt force leaving only a few to lick their wounds. The Falcon pulled around some terrain only to meet a Zonathrope, tearing it apart with three blasts from his pulse laser. The War Walker turned his attention to the Zoanthrope who was causing trouble with the Wave Serpent. Several Star Cannon blasts reduced it to a puddle of goo. The Wave Serpent quickly pulled around the hill and prepared to disembark. The Fire Dragons charged out, Fusion Guns blazing and were able to melt a hole in one of the Warriors. <BR>The Wraithlord's flamer blazed the remaining Gaunts, setting several on fire. He charged the remaining squad, tearing one of them limb from limb.  The battle had quickly turned on the Tyranids but still they fought on.</FONT></P>

<P style="MARGIN-LEFT: 10px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 10px" align=justify><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>The Hive Tyrant swooped down from his perch to assault the Avatar. They locked in combat failing to wound each other. The remaining Warrior locked into combat with the Fire Dragons who had felled his squadmate. The remaining Gaunts were torn to pieces by the Wraithlord. The Lictor finally decided to make his attack, uncloaking and charging the rear of the Falcon. His attacks missed and he braced himself on the turf.</FONT></P>

<P style="MARGIN-LEFT: 10px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 10px" align=justify><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>The Farseer sensed victory, only a few commands would spell ultimate victory. The Falcon zoomed forward past the Lictor and then suddenly spun about, pulse laser blazing, its ultraheated beams tearing pieces of the Lictor off and leaving it a heaped mass. The Hive Tyrant and the Avatar engaged once again. The Tyrants slashing claws tore into the Avatar, disabling it. The Guardian Squad enraged by the loss of their Avatar prepared the heavy weapon platform, its Bright Lance tore into the back of the Tyrant in a final wound, blood splattering all over the battlefield. The Wraithlord tore into its Gaunt assault leaving nothing but a mass of Tyraind parts. The remaining Fire Dragons felled the last Warrior, melting him to a puddle. There was nothing left of the Tyraind force to return to its Kraken but the Eldar returned </FONT><I><B><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color=#cc6600>victorious</FONT><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>.</FONT></B></I></P>
