With a scream of fury, the Chaos Champion swung his glaive through the air, smashing into the barrel of the Techmarine’s Bolter, knocking it aside as the round meant to finish the fight screamed off in another direction. The Space Marine stepped back as the glaive swung at his feet, and the Khornate Marine pushed himself back to his feet.
The Champion of darkness swung his blade in an overhead arc that would have split the techmarine in two had he not raised his Power axe to block the deadly blow, the weapons meeting with a clash of metal, the damned meeting the mechanical, technological advancement against unholy fury. The combatants both took a step back, circling each other. David took a step forwards, swinging horizontally in an attempt to bisect the warrior of the Dark Gods. His target blocked with the haft of the daemon weapon, stepping aside himself and reversing his grip on the weapon, spinning it around for a devastating counterblow. The Knight Templar swayed aside, the blasphemous weapon shrieking past his head, and swung again at his foe’s head. The warrior of the Blood God again parried, this time with the jet-black blade of the berserker glaive.
Once more the Champion of Chaos screamed a terrifying battlecry, raising his weapon above his head, and brought it downwards in a two-handed strike. Alert to this preferred method of fighting, David again raised his weapon, held horizontally, blocking the blow, but this time, the Khornate champion took another step forwards, rolling his wrists to bring the haft of his weapon upwards while the blades were still locked together. The hafts of the two weapons met, and David’s weapon was ripped out of his hands, flying up into the air to land several feet behind him. Before his could react, his foe had pivoted, and smashed the blade horizontally through his flank, the glaive shredding his armour like it was paper. A groan of pain escaped the dying Techmarine, his blood flowing out of the hole in his shattered armour, and David slumped to the ground as the champion of Khorne gave a scream of triumph.
