Okay, very intrigued by the last panel, not expecting any answers but going ask questions anyway
Did their faces just get covered by some 'gunk'? Or did their entire bodies just get vaporised?
Four 'CHOOM's, but three bodies, does that mean Red got double-CHOOM'ed? :D (Bet it wasn't the first time either :P)
Seems like there was some real jealousy from Red

Looks like the orange guy was the brains of the group :(

@Guesticus: After the first 3 blasts knocked the 3 in front out of the way, the 4th blast hit the 3 in the back is how I read it.

@EvilKiru: delayed fourth blast? that was able to hit three heads at once? nah, more likely going to be something else
Remember: the 'CHOOM's were at the same time, and you see four simultaneous 'muzzle-flashes', plus, the blasts on the three Enforcers are different to the localized head-shots to the Guardians

A weapon that vaporizes Slorns and takes out humanoids? Could also be two weapons, since their effect is very different. Very convenient here. The gas mask is probably for the next trick she will play on the backup force. I wonder if they will survive long enough to know what hit them.

Has to be two weapons, two of the Guardians (not Slorns) are barely visible when Red and Co get taken out
The mask is probably so Tirin doesn't have to breath in vaporized Guardian... Ooo, maybe that's a Guardian trick and they can turn gaseous if needed, leads back to what Red said about using a vacuum cleaner

Just to clarify, I've modified panel 7 a bit.
Guesticus (Guest) August 25th, 2017, 9:40 am
@Merceneiress: wasn't much doubt about panel 7 (but it's still good to see both shots hitting Red), it's what caused the last panel we are waiting to find out about :)

Dorgu If he lives long enough,Dorgu will make a good Master Sargent. He asks the right questions. If he just had enough seniority for the others to act on his observations. Might have taken 15 or 20 panels to get taken out.

If they really are cleaning bots, then they are emptying their waste containers at the targets. Quite a bit like getting hit in the face by a fast moving cloud of tear gas.

I suspect Tirin is making some use of knowledge gained from the Guardian autopsy.

Also.. It seems to me that the Slorn don't value their enforcers very much; or probably anyone aside from themselves.
Guesticus (Guest) August 26th, 2017, 3:49 pm
@Mysto: or, they simply didn't expect one of their slaves to start a rebellion
Mysto (Guest) August 26th, 2017, 10:17 pm
@Guesticus: I was more referring to the casual "feel free to torture her" comment from the Slorn. One doesn't tend to do that to a valued asset.
Guesticus (Guest) August 27th, 2017, 4:03 am
@Mysto: considering what they are suspecting, they don't value her as a valued asset anymore
How valued, and regarded, she was considered, they don't believe a rookie under her command or tutelage could pull off whatever it is they did without her knowledge, so yeah, they believe she knows something, and if she's not willing to say what, then she must be complicit, so, torture away

It's the old adage: "If you're not with us, you are against us, and if you are against us, we don't have to play 'nice'"
Mysto (Guest) August 27th, 2017, 9:41 am
@Guesticus: The Slorn seem to be a bunch of twisted bundles of pure paranoia.

..If past scenes are any indication, the Slorn treat ALL of their enforcers as disposable tools, so this reaction is not really surprising.

Value of Henchpeople A Duh everyone- no value on henchmen as Slorn can control time... die- rewind die- rewind- ala Ground Hog Day

Due to view angle, may bet is on Mirbby's arrival.
Guesticus (Guest) August 31st, 2017, 9:13 pm
@agedsage: nah, view angle doesn't mean anything
