Bloodbath at Henrie Gulch

Retrieval mission log –DF/99-

Techpriests Qaurak and Alronsen dispatched to sector KVX-111 to retrieve archeo device coded +Object Omega+.
Mission coincided with conflict between xenos raiders (susp. Eldar) and Imperial Mining Concern security forces. High probability of Object Omega falling into xenos hands. Mission escalated to Level T-9.

Remote sensing probes determined IMC force occupying refinery, while Eldar raiders closed in from the south. Initial exchange of fire resulted in high probability of defeat of IMC forces.

Additional IMC forces appeared from east, applying pressure to raiders. Further IMC forces arrived from south, outflanking raiders. Tactical prognostication revised.

Techpriests Qaurak and Alronsen arrived from west, and determined that IMC troopers had already located Object Omega and were in the act of removing it. Techpriests closed on IMC troopers and ordered them to cease. IMC troopers refused, and were engaged. One IMC trooper terminated by Techpriest Qaurak (terminal application of pneumatic rock drill to pre-frontal lobe) and second IMC trooper fled.

As more IMC forces arrived xenos raid became untenable and survivors conducted a fighting withdrawal.

IMC casualties moderate. Eldar casualties high. Object Omega retrieved.

Eldar Pirates close on the Mining Concern facility.

The Henri Boys counter-attack
