I painted this pic to celebrate 40,000 pageviews on my DeviantArt account!
They arrived too late. Already the pall of smoke up ahead was under-lit by flames.
De-bussing from their Rhino, they were met by withering fire from the shrine and it's surrounding statues. Muzzle flash flickered up ahead and solid rounds ricocheted off the vehicle's armour. The sister superior led sisters Gwendolyn and Berenice towards the gardens surrounding the shrine, clearing the unholy as they went.
All three were bought down by a cultist who ran at them from behind a shattered statue; detonating a bag of tube charges.
Sister Ophelia worked her way up the road with sisters Jerusha and Selah in support. The cultists had set up a stubber in the ruins of the shrine. Just as Jerusha and Selah had cut down a frantic counter-charge by a dozen cultists, they were mown down.
Ophelia desperately threw a frag grenade into the ruins, putting the gun out of action.
Sister Ophelia charged up the steps, gunning down the last of the cultists. Tears stung her eyes as she saw the ruin before her.
It was too late; already the shrine was in flames.
Already it had been desecrated.
