Our Deathwatch team finally finished our mission last night. After clearing out the village of Genestealers (but not finding a Patriarch), we expected to find the city on fire when we got back. But instead the locals staged a victory feast for us!

ALL OF US: Any time now.

GM: [sets up a map of the feasting hall]

ALL OF US: Gosh I wonder why we would need a map for what is CLEARLY just going to be lots of victory speeches.

NPCs: [victory speeches, showering us with praise]

GM: [sets up a couple of dozen miniatures for the locals and Guard troops].

ALL OF US: GOSH THIS IS A LOVELY PARTY I GUESS IT'S A SHAME WE NEVER FOUND THOSE OTHER GENESTEALERS THEY HAVE A WHOLE PLANET TO HIDE ON THEY COULD BE ANYWHERE.

GM: "And then suddenly Genestealers burst through all the doors and attack!" [places figures] "They get a surprise attack."

An epic battle followed. None of us were killed (although Fearless Leader lost an ear, and then got mind-controlled, but fortunately he couldn't manage to hit any of us even while spraying full-auto at point-blank range) and none of the more important NPCs died. Well, except for the Ecclesiarch, but he was a prat anyway and I doubt he'll be missed. Yet again the Rune-Priest pushed his psychic powers; he still hasn't managed the "accidentally summon a Greater Demon" result he keeps angling for, but he did manage a rather impressive accidental rain of blood.

I'd been hoping to strike a blow against the Patriarch, but I couldn't move for fighting off miscellaneous Genestealers. Most of the others were just bouncing off his armour, but eventually the Long Fang lined up a clear shot and emptied a heavy bolter into him, and that was that. Yay us!

Now to call in the Ordo Xenos screening team, and probably the Ordo Hereticus, to look for anything we might have missed - but we're off to the stars again to wrestle with an even more abominable foe: the Deathwatch XP system.
