Gdolkin allowed himself a moment's exultant satisfaction: the steadfast might of the Sons of Ferrus Manus had overcome the corrupted Chaos Marines. The great ordinatus engine rose up before them again, only now it seemed a more achievable objective. The wall at an angled junction ahead of them had collapsed into the defile, creating a slope of spoil and earth leading up out of the labyrinthine network of trenches. Then the Iron-Father saw a shape looming up over the crest of the trench, between the Iron Hands and the ordinatus, that made their struggle so far seem like nothing more than a combat training session.

The cultist was stripped to the waist, chains binding its torso. The symbol of an eight-pointed star was carved into the visible flesh beneath. The creature was completely hairless, the frontal lobes of its brain having grown in such a distorted manner that the cultist's whole skull had been swollen out of shape. Its pupilless eyes shone with an intense white inner light and an aura of coruscating energy enclosed its entire body. Dagan could feel the static charge prickling on his skin. The creature was levitating a full half metre above the floor of the chamber.

It would appear that reinforcements had arrived after all. ' the Marine's voice boomed. Schrodinger recognised it as the one he had heard shouting orders beyond the bulkhead of the bridge. Arch-Magos Schrodinger's rival turned and fixed the Space Marine with the glittering gaze of his red-lensed augmetic eye. ' the Space Marine repeated. The cadaverous figure stepped forward. 'I am Magos Omega Tetrohimus Thule,' he said. ' IRON-FATHER GDOLKIN gave the tech-priest another appraising look, now that he and his honour guard of servitors and fellow Space Marines had ascended to the command platform.
