Hive World

By Chris Handley

Within the deep void of the warp a shadow of pure malice tears into the material universe. Huge claws and tentacles are silhouetted against the luminous red plasma of the reality, thrashing tendrils of violent power and radiation colour the vacuum with an unnatural menagerie. Though as the beast glides over eddies of plasma the void falls silent, a shadow to the forces of chaos.

In the diamond-scattered curtain of the night, hanging near the great Pegasus nebula, a jade orb is encircled by its ring of iron. This ‘Defence ring’ is the only survival this world has in the war torn galaxy.

Millions of tons of plasteel and adamantium rush through space, its destination the agri-world of Delos IV. The ship, miles long, is covered in archaic weapons, their batteries having survived many thousands of years of war.

        “Gamma flight you out there. This is Forcae; look I’ve got a reading of a warp storm coming but its different. Look, could you make a pass near the nebula at sector Tao, seven, niner. It could be nothing or it could be a problem. I’ll contact Sector Command and see if they have anything.”

        “Affirmative. We’ll make a pass and then head back to the ‘Barn’. Clear skies.”

        “We can’t sir.” panted Forcae.

        The cloud of purple spores and spines shattered on the shield, sprays of acidic bile crackled and evaporated on the energy barrier. Sections of the ring were smashed of in the rain of the organic projectiles.

        “Sir, it’s Leviathan.”

        The cloud of Tyranid weapons moved on to the planet, moving through the haywire wall of laser blasts, to eventually reveal the enormous coiled shell of the Hive ship.
