Death in
the Void

“The Gathering of the Ascension: On the eve of the Feast of the
Emperor’s Ascension, four Inquisitors and two hundred brothers of
the Deathwatch arrive the fortress at the same time. All claim to have
received a coded message that called them to attend at the Watch
Fortress. The source of the message is unknown. The Watch Fortress
becomes a battleground of mistrust and murder as a shapeshifting
assassin of unknown origin stalks the corridors and vaults of the
Watch Fortress. The assassin is caught and slain after a seventeen hour
manhunt, but only after the death of two of the four Inquisitors, nine
acolytes, and twenty-three Space Marines. [Other Details Classified]”
–Notes from the Liber Eriochus, 756.M41

Its presence
unmasked, the intruder initiated
an orgy of violence that threatened to engulf the
entire Watch Fortress. Not knowing if this enemy
was the only intruder or if a number of the recently arrived
Battle-Brothers were its allies, the masters of the Chamber
of Vigilance continued their interrogations, though with
greater caution. Of great concern, however, was the fact that
the intruder had appeared to be a Battle-Brother well known
to the Master of Sanctity, leading the other masters to the
conclusion that some manner of domination or imitation was
being used. The masters had no choice but to pass word of
their realisation throughout the entire force, though in doing
so they hoped to drive the infiltrator, or indeed infiltrators, to
some action that would unmask them.
The intruder, however, proved a canny enemy, and one
adept at turning brother upon brother. Stray signals flooded
the vox net, evidently designed to sow discord and confusion
amongst the Adeptus Astartes. Such a thing is far from easy
to achieve, however, and soon the Battle-Brothers were in
full pursuit of at least one confirmed infiltrator. As they ran
their query to ground, cornering it in the outer chamber
of the Shrine of Saint Nuaan, the Deathwatch saw that the
figure before them could be no true Battle-Brother. Its eyes
now glowed with actinic balefire and its voice echoed as
from a distant abyss.

"I warned you not to put the milk jug back empty!"

"Screw you Demetrius! You don't even chip in for groceries!"

Something to be with a possession, but I do not know the whole story.

Evil Ultramarines!? It's just crazy enough to work!

Seriously though, this is epic and its a nice touch how their shown to be evenly matched. 

While standing in fire.

Servoarmor tends to keep you feeling cozy no matter what, I guess.

Armoured or not, I can think of more sensible substances to stand in. 

Just a shame that none of them exist anymore in 40K.

Like what?

Like clean water for instance, free of atomic irradiation, gunpowder poisoning or food waste made from the corpses of recycled children.
