The following battle report was written by Goatmoerser, so all credits go to him. Enjoy reading it and looking at the cool pics!
The deployment said “Dawn of War” and we rolled a dice for the mission and got “Purge The Alien”. The loyal IV Argos got the first turn against Stempe’s traitor guard.
The Aleator sector is a place of constant warfare. Especially the Charybdis System is in furore as the forces of Chaos have shown their ugly face. Hidden among the planetary defenses of the World Navis Longa cults have spread and corrupted the higher ranks of the millitary. After hell broke lose not even the small amount of Adeptus Astartes of the Imperial Fists residing on the planet were able to stop the revolution. The population was rotten to the core and those who were still loyal to the emperor were hunted down and hung to the cities’ walls.
Of course this putsch went not by unnoticed. Even if a lot of other worlds among the System revolted, there came an answer eventually. Several regiments of the Imperial Guard, troops of the fearsome Inquisition and even the mighty Adeptus Astartes showed up to fight for the System’s future. This is nothing but a small operation which took place on the planet Navis Longa at the outskirts of a smaller city. Yet it does mirror the fierce war of the whole System pretty good as the battle raged with the same bewildering determination as if it would have been a huge strife. Parts of the IV Argos under the command of Officer Domitius were sent out to reclaim an important part of the city to establish a bridge head. Unfortunately the place was held by the archenemy’s corrupted planetary defenses commanded by Van Druken.
