It was among the blasted ruins of a Rhino that the squad regrouped. Shahin looked at each of his brothers, taking in the losses they had suffered: Javed and Harun had been vaporised by a lucky Vindicator shell. Brother Omid was shot in the head by an enemy sniper hiding somewhere among the dunes. Zhubin, the squad sergeant, had been immolated by ethereal flames cast upon him by a Librarian of the now-renegade Chapter. Shahin had personally made sure that the wytche had paid for his murder; his bloodied head now hung from the Astartes' belt, his eye holes now dark vacant spaces. Now, only four of them remained, all ready to avenge their fallen brothers in blood.
