Level bangs of bolter fire tore the defenders to their appropriate apart, yet an answering volley cut from the contrary side, punching one of his warriors from his feet with a smoking crater in his upper body.
Solomon turned his own bolter to deal with the brand-new danger, as well as discharged off a rapid burst of shots that sent a bizarre quadruped creature slumping to the ground.
