Thought of the day: The keenest blade is righteous hatred
- General: Watch Station Antael is under siege by Xenos forces. According to the last Astropath communication, the Watch Station is under siege by multiple Xenos forces working in concert. The Chamber of Vilgilance has authorized All available forces of Watch Fortress Erioch to assist in ending the siege.
- Joint Operations Area/Higher Command: The relief force is under the command of the Master of the Vigil. Commands will be relayed to Watch Commanders and Watch Captains.
- Area of Interest: Watch Station Antael
- Area of Operations: Karlack System
- Enemy Forces
- Eldar forces were reported as part of the sieging forces. Eldar are not known to be operating within Jericho Reach. The Eldar forces were reported on Karlack 2 days ago. Expect use of Psycher abilities.
- Tyranid forces were reported as part of the sieging forces. Tyranid forces are not know to coordinate attacks with any species. The Tyranid forces were reported on Karlack 2 days ago. Expect use of bio-weapons.
- Ork forces were reported as part of the sieging forces. Ork are not known to be operating within Jericho Reach. The Ork forces were reported on Karlack 2 days ago. Expect use of Ork firearms and primitive weapons.
- Chaos forces were reported as part of the sieging forces. Chaos forces may include Traitor marines, cultists and Daemons. The Choas forces were reported on Karlack 2 days ago. Expect use of Imperial equivalent weapons and chaos sorcery.
- Friendly Forces: The battlegroup will contain multiple Inquisition and Deathwatch forces. Your Watch Captain/Commander will coordinate with other Kill-Teams.
- Attachments and Detachments: The ship Thunder’s Word will provide transportation to Karlack.
- Assumptions: Seek out warlords who are coordinating the sieging forces. A multi-species force will likely collapse if the warlords are removed.
- Considerations: Any force working in concert with Tyranids is a substantial threat to the Imperium. Whoever was able to create an alliance with the Great Devourer will be Xenos Horrificus to prevent a reoccurance. The Lack of Astropath communication from Antael is concerning to the relief forces.
