The Wasteland Crusade: Episode 2, to the rescue!

 I continue with the tale of Klovis's life, wich shines as an example of purity and zeal to us all.
With the Redeemer captured and the Pulpitek destroyed, I spent the donations of the faithful on another crusading conveyance to lead a rescue mission on the escher's mutant hideout. 
Christened purgemobile and painted in the livery of our glorious redemption it carried me and a select number of the devout in an all or nothing attempt to recover our beloved leader from the jaws of death or worse at the hands of that gang of sinners.

 Great was our exultation when we spied a lone sentry guarding Klovis.
In their hubris, the daemonic vixens had left their den all but unprotected, truly a sign of the Emperor's favour towards us, the defenders of His cause in this desert of  heathens
 Singing psalms to Him on Terra we rushed upon the surprised sentry, and despatched her quickly to an afterlife of atonement through torment for her numberless sins
 I was the first to hurry to the aid of my beloved Redeemer, cutting his bonds with my trusty knife
 At the sound of the gunshots a veritable horde of the semiclad she-devils showed up, together with their rusty, but heavily armed, transport
 The leader of the sinners even had the effrontery to challenge Klovis to a duel, the breath caugh in my throat as he suffered a griveous blow, but he rallied in an instant and lunged back into combat
 Hurrying to his aid, I attacked the pagan harpy, and felling her, saved my mentor. Not that he, most paramount of crusaders, nedded any saving; but having almost lost him once I was ready to risk it all in defence of his holy person
 With most of the crew dispatched, brother Berkark jumped into the heathen contraption, quickly killing the surprised driver
 Near me brother Enguera was also locked in a mortal fight with one of the idolatresses, but with a heavy blow of his club, he knocked her down
With the way clear we mounted on the Purgemobile and sped off into the horitzon, leaving behind the dumbfounded harridans. The redeemer congratulated us on an excellent job, and vowed that he would take us with him in many a future purging against the heretic, the mutant and assorted sinner filth.
A promise wich is enough to content the heart of any true and faithful redemtionist.

Great was the rejoicing among the comunity of the true faith, so great in fact, that a young novice, brother Kramer, joined the ranks of the church militant inspired by our deeds.
