The Thrall steps forward to the next alcove. Its X-ray resonance occulus inspects the Warrior chassis occupying the alcove, identifying and tagging the metallurgical flaws that have developed over the aeons of hibernation. The gestalt presence monitoring its function registering the flaws and assigns scarab units to enact repairs prior to the unit's revivification.
The Thrall steps forward to the next alcove. The expected Warrior chassis is completely subsumed by biological and organic contaminants of unknown designation. Expanding its sensory perception, thermal and electro-chemical activity is revealed, as well as rythmic, oscillating atmospheric pressure waves originating from the corruption in the alcove. This level of contamination is unacceptable and so the Thrall's occulus switches to eradication mode and a focussed beam of X-ray energies is emitted, corrupting the biological matter and breaking down its molecular bonds. The atmospheric pressure oscillations briefly increase in frequency and amplitude until a significant fraction of the organic matter is disassociated before they cease.
The Thrall is aware of the gestalt's increasing presence in its thought routines, activating additional processing routines to better examine the source of this contamination. Its sensory perception widens significantly to encompass the surrounding crypt volume and quickly detects multiple additional sources of biological contamination all of which are also emitting similar atmospheric pressure oscillations. Ultimately, the Thrall experiences the complete subsumption of its autonomic routines as the gestalt takes full control, the dissembling blades of its arms extending.....
Some indeterminate period later the Thrall's autonomic routines re-establish. Scarabs are removing large quantities of organic contaminate from the surrounding volume of the crypt.
The Thrall steps forward to the next alcove.
Another of the Indomitus models, and a new and very sinister looking approach to these constructs, the Canoptek Reanimator. I really love the design aesthetic of these new units, the tall spindly legs, bulbous body, tiny head on a flexible neck. I can almost imagine them floating over the battlefield, their legs barely touching the ground and their heads scanning back and forward.
