Its all gone 'Starship Troopers'...

Take two lonely squads of Stormtroopers, drop them into a bunker on a bug infested planet, unlock the ammo containers, and it can only mean one thing...its all gone Starship Troopers!

Wave after wave of scuttling, leaping, rending bugs launched themselves at the bunker, and died in their thousands (well, hundreds actually). Under the expert control of Hivemind Geoff many a stormtrooper met a grisly end. However, almost as fast as each Stormtroopers commander was killed, another took his place.

At the end of the day the Tyranid menace was beaten off (at least for this day) and the Imperial Guard was left count the cost. In the dispatches back to high command one officer's heroism stood above the rest - Matthew T. Under his watch the Stormtroopers completely obliterated the Tyranid assault wave without loss, except for brave Matthew himself who blew up when his plasma pistol overheated! In gratitude a Carnifex captured in the battle has been sent to his relatives (hope they read the instructions on the box about feeding...)
