Haiku Thursday: The Brief Return

Sigh... I seem to have less time than ever to write these days. On the other hand, a new Necron Codex does mean a new bat-rep for you lot, plus I'll see if it is feasible for me to magnetise the Ark. I hope it is, but if it isn't I have no clue how I'm building it. Have a haiku or two. Theme is 'The Imperial Guard':

Hails of unseen fire
Fill the air with flames crackling
And the ground with thuds.

Onward, Emp'rors men,
To fruitless prizes; death, and
