“Warriors,” the master’s tone carried a keen edge, “we have a problem to overcome.”
We all knew. Not since our purge of Ymargl, a campaign so fierce and long-running that it resulted in the birth of our chapter, had we seen the embracers so deeply rooted. Here, however, experience was on our side. We have done this before and will do it again, and now the wargroup was prepared. Well-trained, well-equipped, we knew that doom would soon befall those on the planet below us.
Our plans were complete, and all brothers had been briefed. A lightning drop, designed to cut the flow of reinforcements emerging from the mine complexes. Then the train would follow, armoured vehicles and heavy support, and our squires would join us. From there, we would find and tear out the heart of our foe.
