The Marauders have a new secret weapon, but they should have had it better protected.
About this creation
My entry for the January World Challenge in the awesome game, The Insurgency!
On the moon of Etrion, Skarik follows two Marauders as they walk through a deserted city.
Marauder 1: "D'you hear what the boss said?"
Marauder 2: "Nah, what was that?"
Marauder 1: "According to 'im, we's gonna raid one o' the Imperium's bases."
Marauder 2: "We can't do that, we don't have the firepower!"
Marauder 1: "We's got a new weapon to use. Speaking of which, its on its way right now."
Marauder 2: "What's that?"
Marauder 1: "It's a hovercraft with our new weapon!"
Marauder 2: "Halt! State your business."
Marauder 1: "You dunce, din't you hear wot I said?"
Marauder 2: "We still need ta check."
Marauder Pilot: "I gots important cargo to bring to the boss. Best not be keeping me."
Marauder 1: "Ahh the boss can wait a few minutes! Give us some hints! Wots in the crate?"
Marauder Pilot: "Alright, I'll tell ya. It's a bomb. A big one at that, and it has no metal so it can get past scanners."
Skarik took out a communicator.
Skarik: "This is Nighthawk, the Marauders have a bomb, and they're planning to use it to raid one of our bases. It's being transported by a hovercraft. Over."
Imperium Radio Operator: "Copy Nighthawk, can you take control of the hovercraft and get inside their base? Over."
Skarik: "Affirmative, I'm working on it now. I'll let you know once I've taken control. Over."
Skarik jumped out the window above the two Marauders, his knife flashing in the sun.
Landing on one of the Marauders, he stabbed his knife deep into his chest.
Skarik lunged over to the other Marauder, knocking his gun out of the way as he slashed at his throat.
The pilot of the hovercraft fell out of the seat in shock, and began running away. Quickly snatching up the first Marauder's pistol, Skarik shot the pilot.
He hides the bodies in the building, and strips the last Marauder of his clothing.
He removes his own armor and puts on the Marauders clothes, and prepares to leave, wearing the disguise.
Jumping into the seat of the hovercraft, he familiarizes himself with the controls. Into his communicator he says: "Command, this is Nighthawk, the hovercraft is mine. Out."
Fourth Wall: Wooh! Barely got this up before the end of January! Sorry about the final blurry picture, and the two off colored photographs, I'm not really sure how to use my mom's camera. Anyway, I'm pretty happy with this build. It started off really bland, so I added a few things, like the rubble piles, and the foliage growing on the side. I'm also pretty happy with how the hovercraft turned out. Anyway, thanks for looking, please let me know what you think, and if you don't know what The Insurgency is, go check it out!
