Artemis' knife strikes true, piercing the servitor's leg. Yellowish pus bubbles from the wound. The second servitor swings its arm at Artemis while the first levers itself to its feet. The blow swings wide again, missing Artemis by a hairsbreadth.
The built-in vox in Artemis' helmet crackles and then a clear, crisp voice comes through.
"Brothers, this is Sergeant Camael. I have been forced to destroy two servitors after they attacked myself and an enginseer. There is a heretic aboard this ship. Please inform Captain Lan that he should have all servitors rounded up for examination."
The servitor's mechanical strength is great, the two tines pounding through ceramite and adamantine plating. It wrenches them free, leaving a pair of ragged punctures in the armor. Some blood oozes slowly from the holes before Artemis' enhanced clotting factor staunches the flow.
A shudder of pain flows down Artemis's chest, as his hardening blood stained his black armor. The red of his own blood mingling with the blue-green streaks that already existed.
A cool anger washed over the apothecary. These abominations will die by Artemis's hands. Once again the space marine
Im attempting to use the tactics skill test. Free action (based on the last time), I have an intelligence of 51, and i am trained in Tactics (Defensive Doctrine) at +20 (so by my belief, im rolling under 71).

Casting about for a more defensive position, Artemis notices that to his left a narrow passage created by the wall and some of the heavy medical machinery would keep only one servitor able to attack him at a time while hindering the movement of their bulky arms.
Artemis' thrust snags on a fluid line, the adamantine forged blade tearing through it. Black lubricant sprays like blood from an arterial wound. Still, the servitor keeps on, though its arm moves notably slower with the cut line.
Ducking the swifter of the two servitor's attack, Artemis catches its companion's blow in the chest. A single point of the vice pierces the armor, though not as deeply as before.
"Hold on, Apothecary!" Hefting a Godwyn-de'az bolter, Magdalena takes aim at the damaged servitor. "Purge the unclean!"
Sister Magdalena appears, hefting a Godwyn-De'az bolter, looking for all the world like a true sister of battle.
She fires a rapid burst at the servitor, but the shots go wide, shredding a hospital bed to Artemis' left.
Artemis flinched as the servitor punctured his armor again, drawing Astartes blood. It amazed the apothecary to no end the resilience of these servitors.
The aid from Magdalena was also unexpected, but appreciated.

Base Str is 35. The Power Armor adds +20 to my Str. I need to beat 55 and have more degrees of success than the servitor.

d100 Results: 19 (Total successes = 3)
whoo, finally another hit, i think the first damage roll im rolling using the bolt pistol.
a 19 is 2 degrees of success. (which means if i roll a 1 on my damage dice rolls, i can switch one of them for a roll of a 2, as defined in the Step 4: Attacker determines damage section, pg 244).
Astartes Bolt Weapons have the tearing quality (allowing them to roll an extra dice are discard the lowest dice), so i'm modifying the dice formula to 3d10v1+5 instead of 2d10+5.
