    After a week's trip in the warp, your ship has reached orbit around Cadia. Emi has been a bit of an upstart amongst the initiates, having bloodied one of them for making a pass at her. Inquisitor Constantine was waiting in low orbit, picking up your latent psyker along with taking Galemaster Dewey as an escort. You report to the bridge to speak with Chapter Master Saevio.

    After a short exchange of information, you are assigned command over a drop company to retake Kasr Lain. It seems the Dark Angles dropped in to attempt to counter the insurgency amongst the populace, and then returned to their battle barge.

    You have the following forces as your disposal:
    >Space Marine Scouts (15)
    >Tactical Space Marines (30)
    >Assault Marines (10)
    >Terminators (5)
    >Bladewind Veterans (5)
    >Devastator Marines (15)
    >Drop Pods to house all squads
    >Rhino (3)
    >Land Raider (Select Pattern) (1)
    >Razorback w/ TwL Assault Cannon, for you and your Command Squad.

    The forces inside are renegades from a nearby guard regiment that succumbed to Chaos. Preliminary recon of the ruined base showed a bloody massacre and horrible altars and ritual pits. Symbols of the Ruinous Powers littered the area, along with dozens of ruined Chimeras and abandoned vehicles.

    Estimated Heretic force is in the 400 man range.

    It's a valid point. I mean, unless there's something worth saving amidst those 400~ heretics in a fortress, it's really easier to just nuke it.

    Plus, even if there is something valuable down there, Inquisitors have sacrificed more for less.

    Cadian Officials want Kasr Lain's populace to stay alive for the most part, along with the retaking of the city intact as much as possible. The Kasr Lord was killed and the people lack leadership. They hope a strong new lord and some minor 're-education' is in order to restore the population to loyalty, rather than glassing the area.

    Have two full Tac squads along with a Devastator and Assault squad on standby for insertion. At least two Devastators should have either missile launchers or, better yet, multi-meltas. The Tac squads should also carry a couple of flamers for clearing out the city. For the Land Raider, I think we ought to configure it to Crusader pattern, although Redeemer could work well too.

    The Hive is integrated with the fortress to a degree, and only attached to the spaceport. However, heavy bombardment would cripple recovery efforts.

    If they have Demolishers, they'll doubtless have plenty of light APCs to back them up, Hellhounds and Chimeras and the like. Maybe a Basilisk or two mixed in.

    If possible, I want to hit the Palace with the Tactical Squads. Drop a Devastator Squad in to take position as far from the road as possible, and start marking heavy armor. Tac Squads hit the streets and clear out the Palace. If we can secure that as a strong point, we can use it to push forwards from.

    Got it.

    Have the two Tac, one Devastator, and one Assault Squads land behind the palace. Sweep the streets and clear out the Palace from behind, so the Devs can use it as a firepoint. The Tacticals can take the sewers from there, and we can use the Palace as a drop site for heavier artillery and more troops.

    How about this. Beta is closest to the sewer line that runs directly through the palace. They should traverse the sewers and infiltrate the palace. Once they've gotten through safely, Two Tactical squads and the Devastators drop in and enter the palace via those same sewers. As the Tacticals and Scouts sweep the palace, the Devastators fire on heavy targets outside the palace.

    If we do this, where do we place the rest of the force?

    If they're moving the to the space port that might mean the heretics are making a break for it. We should drop our Terminators and remaining Marines near the port, along with the Land Raider to makes sure that there's a nice surprise awaiting them.

    If the traitors are moving towards the spaceport then they're not near the palace. I say we assault the palace with the Tacs and Devs, either up through the sewers or directly down on the palace. Once we have that secured, it can be used as a staging ground for retaking the rest of the city. As long as they think command is still in the palace, they're not going to fire on it either.
    >> Anonymous 09/20/09(Sun)21:21 No.5944436
    I agree with this, in all likelihood, the heretic command will be at the Palace, and if we take out the command, the generic cultists will be in disarray and many will likely kille themselves, although the fact they they are mobilising at the spaceport might signify that they are attempting to get off world or are going to perform a ritual to summon some foul traitorous beast.

    You can out-range it with your missiles, but nothing else. It would take a decent stealth movement to get in melta or assault range, or the Assault Marines would need to drop in.

    Pretty much. Sidestepping them is probably the best option, considered our lack of mobile, heavy firepower, unless we can get the Thunderhawk to run a strafing pattern with it's Battle Cannon. However, that would probably result in the loss of the ship, since there's other artillery down there.

    They carry them normally.

    But still, the Cannons are in the middle of an armored column. It's not like dropping an Assault unit onto them would be the most sane move in the world. They'd need heavy backup, and we don't know the status of those tanks we were supposed to be marking for the Devastators.

    Scratch what I said, since the map got updated.

    New plan: Take the Space Marines on the ground north towards the Space Port. It's clearly their objective, since they left the Palace open.

    Take the Land Raider and all remaining assault troops from the Eastern Flank, near the Depot, so we can hit them from both sides. Have the currently deployed Devs take up position on the opposing flank. They seem to be herding towards the Space Port, meaning their heavy weaponry will be bunched up there, and easier to hit.

    >Missiles on the tanks, flank from the east

    Your Devastators unlease a salvo of Krak Missiles on the pair of Eradicators. Three missiles go wide, but one connects with the side of an eradicator, but fails to inflict damage. You hear a klaxon sound.

    Your Thunderhawk streaks through the atmosphere as it drops the LRR into position near the Depot, your other marine squads dropping in a series of Rhinos behind the LRR. The LRR begins to advance down the street moving at combat speed. A quick survey of the depot reveals a cache of equipment and sentinels with power lifters, operated by servitors. Inside the cache is the PDF's special weapons.

    You see a flare of red flash from the Eradicator, streaking towards your Missile Devastators, a lascannon shot blasting through the chest plate of a battle brother.

    >OP is rolling scatter die and d6 as you advance.

    Your tactical squads advance through the rubble, trying to close the distance as fast as possible to allow the Multi-Melta Devastators to set up within effective Melta range. Plasma shots streak passed their movements as they move closer. A demolisher cannon goes wide, but another hits directly on target, blasting an entire squad to pieces. Two Krak Missiles miss, but a third hits the side of an Eradicator. You see the vehicle shake. The Assault marines make a wide arc on their jump dropping straight down onto the other eradicator, meltabombs in hand. The meltabombs rip into the hull, causing a massive explosion, but your marines are unharmed.

    The LRR has moved within firing range and begins to unload with it's Twin Linked assault cannons, glancing the front of a Demolisher, damaging the drive system. The Thunderhawk makes another run with your Razorback in tow, dropping your command vehicle to the battlefield. Your Twin-Linked assault cannon has a clean shot at the side armour, but the 3 shots that hit fail to inflict damage.

    The Eradicator fires at the advancing squads, 2 plasma blasts missing, but a third killing 2 tactical marines and causing them to retreat. Another Demolisher round impacts perfectly in the middle of another Tactical Squad, but only kills 2 marines. They hold fast. The second Demolisher connects and kills 4 more marines. The Sgt. holds his ground.

    Your Devastators hit, but only 2 missiles deal damage. The Eradicator Cannon erupts in a plume of blue flames as the hull is rocked. Your Assault squad plant more meltabombs on the Demolisher. The explosion proves too potent, and kills 3 marines. Your assault squad falls back.

    Your assault cannons concentrate fire and rip into the side of the other Eradicator, completely wrecking it. The other Demolisher fires and misses the advancing marines. Your devastators are in range of the Multi-Melta's double penetration, and begin to set up. Your Land Raider halts, the front exploding as your terminator squad moves out, charging at the remaining tank. The concentrated force of 5 powerfists at the engines causes a massive explosion that does nothing to your well armoured terminators.

    Your squads regroup.

    With your force at arms, you slowly advance into the spaceport. You cannot take anymore vehicles, so your marines move on foot.

    The Assault Marines break down the door and are met with a torrent of Lasgun Fire, managing to take down only 1 marine as the jump packs flare to life and carry the marines into close combat, making quick work of the 6 guards. You hear the whine of engines overhead.

    You advance into the port, your Terminators moving up to take point, your Devastators attempting to find a decent firing arc with the bulky launchers and Multi-Meltas. Your Bladewinds merge with your squad, having shed their jump packs to allow the use of the Rhino. Your begin the sweep of the building as per your sweep of the streets, however you show none of the mercy for anyone inside as you did with the civilians. You already know the entire port is infested, and clear rooms with holy promethium.

    You relay over the vox, calling for Alpha Squad. No response.

    Dispatching the teams of scouts to the last known location reveals a grizzly sight. Their bodies have been horribly maimed by plasma fire. But there are only three bodies. Where'd the other two go?

    An inspection of the sewer finds them. One is missing his left arm, another is badly wounded from the splash. Apothecaries tend to them.

    You relay the message that the area is secure and Kasr Lain once again is in control of the Imperium. A congratulatory cheer is heard as the Cadian Command hears, along with a verbal pat from Master Saevio.

    "You lead the forces well, Brother. Though our Brothers may have fallen, know it was from the heretical guns they commanded, not incompetence."

    You can't seem to feel any bolstering from his words. You still feel responsible, adding to the pit in your gut from when you saw your former Chapter Master being carried away.
