Massacre in the Hive City 000.333 M42

Preferring the old-fashioned way of travel, Sgt. Slab makes his way to a landing zone in order to extract the bulk of his forces with the Warmaster in tow. Fringe teleportation technology was definitely not something Sgt. Slab was going to rely on for a mission of this import. 

Fully aware of the gravity of the evolving situation, Aximand lies in  ambush, ready to attack the caravan making off with his brother. Before he can spring his trap on the Cadian regiment something is called to his attention. From his concealed position he receives a note from one of his acolytes written in jagged cursive of someone in a dire rush. Immediately upon reading it he destroys it viciously, along with the poor acolyte delegated to deliver the message.

Somewhere on Vigilatum 000.289.M42

Lenny and Omar milled about on a planet which they only knew as Cadia 6 . All the while smoking chemcigs, and shooting the shit they stood guard; tasked with the protection of a southern entrance to an industrial manufactorum of some importance.  Dust danced around them in tall grey plumes, filling their nostrils with black sludge. Lenny bent over to examine a small golden coin he had spotted on the ground.

Catastrophic Loss of life 000.272.M42

Prosan of the Cadian system in the Segmentum Obscures has been tectonically compromised. Intelligence suggests that the offending agent is an energy-cannon of immeasurable magnitude. The death toll on the forgeworld has been astronomic; latest reports confirming planet wide social break down, and prevalent rioting.
