Melee ensued. The Orks charged the marines. The Dark Angels were more than happy to close the gap. Few creatures in the galaxy were as at home in such a fray as the Imperial Space Marine. Even the disarmed brothers waded into the battle without hesitation or fear. Whether it be power-sword, chain-sword, standard issue close combat blade, or even a hardened ceremite elbow, they were no slouchs. Even though they were outnumbered, the ferocity of their counter-charge put their alien opponents instantly on their heels, most especially Zed, who watched his shooter being cleaved in two while still in his own hand.
