Cadia Will Burn (Action)

Post by Falco Sanders on Wed Aug 02, 2017 2:45 pm

The fortress of Kalthimars deep, a great curtain wall between two cliffs of black stone, its tops studded with heavy artillery, mortar teams and heavy bolter emplacements, looms in the distance. The waiting army, ready to breach and butcher the lightly defended belly of cadia waits behind you... and awaits the fortresses fall.
The war master, Abbadon the despoiler walks up to you, his armour hissing and growling the steam, the talon of Horus clenched tight shut. He looks over you all for a moment, before turning to Korban "Able men, Korban. And good choices... I am giving you charge of these men, and entrusting you to do as I have ordered. When this lamb is ready for slaughter, send the signal and we shall break this bastion of the corpse emperor. Remember Korban, do not fail me."
He turns again to the entirety of the men. "Korban has chosen you for this task, and thus he has honoured you beyond all medals and rewards that can be given. You have an opportunity now to win yourselves unending glory, a place in history. You shall be known as the men who won cadia. Perhaps some of you shall be my generals after this, or be honoured by the gods themselves... If you succeed. If you fail to destroy Kalthimars deep, I shall personally find the most creative of ways to massacre each and every one of you, and you shall be known as greater failures than all the corpse-worshiping fools who will cower and die before us in this glorious conquest." He looks you over again, making sure his message has sunk in. "Korban, feel free to take any vehicles you need for this mission... I am needed elsewhere, report to the warpsmith Helbrax for them or any other specialties you require..." He looks you all over once more, nods, then walks away, leaving you to discuss strategy and plan your assault on this base.

Chloro Tzzek stares across at the fort, with biological fingers clutched around his Macrostubber and Cane - though to call them biological is quite a stretch, for at least half are bionic replacements, as is a large section of his left hand along the right hand side. Chloro's extra set of bionics clutch his Axe and Meltagun with finely wrought steel fingers, while a servo-arm hovers over his back with a flamer nozzle pointed wherever he looks. Another servo-arm hangs to the side, bearing a powerful pneumatic jaw which opens and closes in a mimicry of breathing. Tentacle-like mechaendrites slither absent mindedly across his cloak, creating ripples like flowing water. He has a Void Cutter, though it maintains a hidden position under the heretek's cloak.

"Casualty predictions from frontal assault; 100%. Casualty predictions from desertion; 100%. Alternate route advised."

Korban nods to his warmaster 'Do we have intel on this place, warmaster, it would be greatly appreciated'

From what you've already discussed, Korban, all attempts at gathering inside intel so far have been met with failure, however, it is known that the majority of the base is in the mountains either side of it, built deep into the rock. All across the flat land leading up to it lie defensive emplacements and small bunkers, designed to hamper frontal assault and prevent siege weapons getting within range. Upon each of the mountains are at least 3 earth shaker batteries, and the 'wall' between the two holds mortar batteries, and many, many machine gun emplacements and lasgun firing-points.

The only known entrance to the base is the central gate set into the vast wall, currently sealed heavily shut by 30-foot thick ferrocrete, blast reinforced doors, controlled from the inside. The gate is wide enough to allow two chimeras abreast, or one baneblade/baneblade variant through, though the base does not support any tanks. It is suspected the base supports an entire regiment, the Cadian 311st 'Kalthimar's defenders', nearly 1000 men, fully armed and equipped.

"Noble Justaerin." The Heretek begins, drifting on his crimson cloak over to the slightly taller Terminator. "May I suggest aerial insertion? A lack of dedicated anti-aircraft fire within effective range of the fortress works very much in our favour."

At Hearing "Aerial" a Chaos Raptor in Night Lords livery, who was until then sitting on a rock sharpening his Flaying Knife, stood and walked over to listen more closely, not saying a word. His twisted armour was adorned with symbols of death and terror, a light and compact jump pack, obviously a heavily modified Crusade Era model, was secured to his back.

Aerial insertion could work and, if we remain undetected, could provide an opportunity for infiltration. I would imagine the defenders would be overjoyed to be reinforced by a squad of astartes.

"So the pretender launches his 13th Crusade. 12 failures. I wonder how he will fail this time.", Senera thinks.

Arenes with his black armour moves to where everyone is talking.
"Aerial insertion does sound good. But revealing ourselves would be risky. Even if we disguised as loyalists, the second the Imperial forces see us, we would die very fast. Infiltration would suit better. Opening the gates would also do well for us."

"You pathetic worms... Sneaking and skulking. Luckily for you not even I could take the defenses by myself, so I'll have to play along with your detestable plans. For now..."

His voice was like the scrapping of metal on stone, filled with venom and spite

Chloro studies each of the huge, hulking beasts in turn, eventually rotating a full three-hundred and sixty degrees after noting every devious chaos icon, brutal assault weapon and carnivorous glare to his memory. "Infiltration? Preposterous."

Korban lifts his power fist and powers it, bathing the darkly lit room in a blue, electric glow. And in one swift motion destroys the great marble table before the warband, his emotionless helm looking every man dead in the eye giving all a feeling of coldness, some even hear a feint growl that does not match the vocals of the Black legionary 'No more bickering, I'am in command and I command that my hounds hold their tounge' his locks eyes with Arenes and the night lord, the Alpha legionary seeing the shadow of the commander shift into a larger, horned appearance.

Deactivating his power fist Korban growls his voice down to his normal tone 'Aerial would draw all of the attention, infiltration is too risky, frontal assault would be a needless slaughter that would be needed else where... We will be as wolves, attack from all sides with such intensity the enemy will have no option but to crumble beneath our boots. We infiltrate, we descend, we rush. And we crush', looking to the night lord, pointing a thick finger of the black power fist 'Night lord, take all a available aerial units from the main army and descend upon the enemy, dismantle every mortar and cannon for the forward advance, I will deep strike with Chloro and Alpharius' He looks at the two identical warriors 'Strike from the shadows and earn your share of the kill, we are all in the eyes of the gods now failure is death'. korban turns once again to take a measure of each warriors opinion on the idea 'We attack in one hour, be ready' he leaves to find a suitable place for teleportation gesturing for the tech priest to follow.

*opens a private Vox channel to the other Alpha legionnaire*
Fifth Cypher. We'll likely need some extra explosives at some point, melta bombs and Krak grenades should do.

Arenes ignores the Khornate's illusion and nods, finding the plan acceptable.
The Gods can watch all they want, he isn't going to be pleasing any of those bastards

Arenes then switches to the fifth Cypher of Serpentia.
He then communicates with the other Alpha Legionnaire through the private Vox
"3 Frag grenades, 3 Krack Grenades, and 2 Demo Charges. I have us covered for most types of explosives but I'm missing Melta Bombs. Perhaps we can liberate some from the forces on the ground.
So, what's the plan?"

Averandus nods to Korban, apparently satisfied with the command, but his fist had clinched when he had herd him call them hounds. His face was hidden behind a grinning blood red skull that was etched with intricate detail... It was obviously take from a slain Chaplain. Symbols of death were carved into it's surface. He went off in search of the other Jump Pack equipped units.

"Compliance." Chloro follows his Black Legion master; a respectful distance behind to avoid any sudden lashings out - an issue he has observed in 78.47% of Astartes-human relationships, and that's not factoring in when the humans are on the opposing side. He readies a scanning device and begins to search for the most suitable locations to perform short-range teleport jumps.

Korban uses his short wave vox to communicate to the larger army about the plan but keeps walking and notices how the tech priest is lagging behind him 'Their is no need to fear me son of Mars, I will not kill you for no reason'

Chloro's scanner discovers some areas where a short range teleport jump has an acceptable chance of success (90% and above.) Most of them are on top of the heavily defended walls, swarming with guardsmen and guns, however, there are a few near the earth-shaker batteries and the smaller fortifications dotted around them on the mountain side.

We go along with the black legionnaires plan for now. The explosives will probably be needed to delay anyone following us or to cause distractions, of course whether the target of the delay worships a corpse or the warp is yet to be decided.

"My lord, a teleport strike can take us to the top of the wall, amongst the primary Astra Militarum line, or to the more isolated Earthshaker batteries." The Heretek puts the device back into the folds of his cloak, while hobbling closer to the Astartes with his skull-topped cane. "Might I offer my own strategic guidance, lord?"

"Either way works", Arenes says to the other Alpha Legionnaire. "We have about 50 minutes, I'll try to find us some melta bombs. Unless you want to leave now? The initiative might work in our favour."
Arenes then walks up to a random person and speaks to him, this time using no cipher. "Excuse me, where can I find the armory?"

Arenes - Being on an open field, preparing for battle, not in a base or a ship(As somebody apparently decided) There's no armoury per-say, but you manage to find a weapons stockpile with a few demolitions charges and melta bombs in.

The old Heretek stumbles on his cane as he tries to keep up with the Astartes. "As I understand, we are assembling forces of-" he blurts a string of machine-code briefly, then begins a bizarre exchange between himself and a deeper, static filled voice.

"Designation - Raptor."
"Conform, Raptor."
"Compliance."


He continues as if nothing odd had occurred. "And potentially," Chloro's head jerks to one side as more binary gargles out, and his Mechaendrite lashes out to the side in a sudden spasm.

"Designation - Warp Talon."
"Error 404 - designation not found."
"Update: assign designation 'Warp Talon' pict 13,992, 13993, 15,940. Analyse and confirm."
"Confirm, Warp Talon."
"Compliance."

Chloro looks upon the Terminator with his dead, glassy eye. "In order for these units to make a relatively unhindered descent, the bulk of the Astra Militarum infantry will need to be pre-occupied. Having yourself teleport amongst them will cause sufficient havoc." He adjusts his robe, to ward away the chills along his adamantium spine. "To make myself of use, the isolated artillery batteries may fall with 89.4% chance of success to my Meltagun."
