View Full Version : Battle Group Warseer & Warseer Black Crusade - Incoming Transmissions!

12-08-2010, 08:18
Ok, we now have a healthy list of units assigned to Battle Group Warseer, and thanks to Askari we are close to the same for the despicable Warseer Black Crusade! Now the time has come to unleash all that power on the unsuspecting Galaxy....

The plan is this: This is the Background section, not the Battle Reports section, so we are not looking for extensive reports which would belong elsewhere, just brief in character transmissions straight from the battlefield.

If anyone who has forces that are part of either of our Warseer Factions plays a game against anyone else, whether they are part of the opposing faction or not (which would be tricky anyway given how wide spread we are!), then post a brief message in the style of an Astropathic Comminication, Radio Transmission or other suitable style of field report. You would need to begin by identifying yourself, your unit and where you are deployed, and then give us a couple of lines about the engagement you just played. Nothing too detailed, just something that is characterful and tells us what enemy you faced, whether you were victorious or not, and what your forces are doing next - retreating, pursuing the enemy, counting slaves, or whatever.

Occasionally, we may give you a theme to base your battles around, like a Chaos invasion of a particular world for example, which would give you a few places to fight over and tell you what enemies you would face on that planet, in which case post about engagements at those places and against those enemies and we'll see which Faction can rack up the most victories. I trust you will all post honestly! I've already had a word with both the Inquisition and slipped an e-mail to Tzeentch, so they will know if you cheat!

So brothers, to war!

And extra kudos to Imperial Forces that defeat the forces of Chaos, and vice versa - this is a blood feud 10,000 years in the making after all!

Good luck....

*frazzle* This is Private Mills of the 3./6th Monglor Ogryns on Bycan II. We're facing heavy resistance from Chaos forces. The Captain and the Commissar are dead, the beastmen and most of the Blood Axes you hired have fled. My Manticore is empty, only the Hydra is still ok, we're retreating to save the tech while the Ogryns delay the enemy. *frazzle*

Addressed; Warseer Battle Group Command
CC; Segmentum [deleted] Command, Strategic Services Initiative, Inquisitor Eternus
Subject; Despatches, 1st Black Sun Militia, 1st Company 'Black Cats'
Author; Captain Aurelius, 1st BSM
Thought for the Day; A bleeding heart is ripe for infection.

It pains me to report that the 1st Company have been driven from our previous stated position. Initial reports suggesting that the area was devoid of resistance were proved false when, immediately upon deployment of the A128 'Thumper' device assigned to us, a brood of xenos (designate 'Tyranid') erupted from within our perimeter. The 'Thumper' was destroyed and we were forced to abandon Complex Delta. However, casualties were light and, as the alien seems content to dwell within Complex Delta for the time being (suggests possible lack of 'synapse' organisms?), 1st Company have secured a new perimeter around the battle site and are awaiting further orders or reinforcement. While this was a small-scale skirmish, a significant amount of materiel remains within Complex Delta and so I humbly suggest that this task is given B1 regional priority.

Please note; A128 'Thumper' device proved to be ENTIRELY INEFFECTIVE at countering the Tyranid threat. While the xenos' desire to destroy the device was obvious, no significant impairment of function was noted in the attackers. Magos Kind believes that the 'Thumper' simply exacerbates the alien into attacking; suggest that its use in Battlegroup defensive strategy is reviewed IMMEDIATELY.

Captain Aurelius (1st BSM, 1C)

Notable Mentions; Sergeant 'Aspie' Hiero, 1st BCM 1C (led a counter-charge against Tyranid close-combat bioforms) (deceased) - Private Ernst Bloom, 1st BSM 1C (autocannon operator, accounted for eight confirmed kills, including heavy bioform) (MIA)

+I have sent the World Eaters under my command to the southern continent of Velos V to cleanse the minor ork infestation. While heavy casualties were taken the area was not the less secured.+

+I am deploying the surviving elements of Dreagher’s host and the 17th grand company of Iron Warriors to begin the siege of the outer hives and sub hives, while my own Exiled Ones move on Hive Principal.

*I assume you destroyed it?*
*As soon the field was won. Of particular note during the battle was the duel between our commanding officer, Colonel Zoega, and the fallen marine that was leading the treacherous PDF elements. The fallen one charged the Colonel and when all seemed lost the Colonel shouted for a demo-charge. A nearby trooper gave him one, which the Colonel promptly shoved down the traitors throat. The Colonel is still recovering from the effects of the blast, but the corpsmen tell me he will live*

Fellow soldiers, I am pleased to announce that the fighting men of Draugar have successfully repelled a Necron assault on the temporary battlegroup headquarters on Mora V. Following the attack, the planet has been vacated of all battlegroup personnel.

The defense line was attacked at several points, though the heaviest attack was straight at the heart of Battlegroup command. Elsewhere, the attacking forces were insufficient and 'phased out' after brief confrontations, and though the Draugar regiments were sorely outnumbered, victorious units from nearby defense complexes rallied to relieve the Honor Guard. Together, the Imperial forces destroyed elements crucial to the Necron battleplan such that the aliens were forced to abandon their cause and return to their crypts.

I will consult our Ordo Xenos allies on the possibility of eradicating the Necrons. Should they be unable to, let no man set foot on Mora V from now until the end of days.

Dearest Warmaster Askari, Commander Yes Yes and So On:

I feel I must explain a spot of excitement that may have come to your attention. Sadly my brothers and sisters in temptation were involved in an ignominious spat with a detachment of the Black Legion a few days ago. We had found these most wondrous baubles in an abandoned settlement, but they insisted the things must have some sort of practical use and demanded possession.

Mostly Khorne followers, you see. No reasoning with their sort.

You will be delighted to hear, however, that we remedied this wholly unprovoked affront - thanks in the main to some artfully directed heavy weapons fire, it must be said, but also in that their skill at arms would seem to have been exaggerated. Honestly, you Khorney fellows, there are so many lovely deadly sins to choose from - why not try one other than Sloth, hmm?

We continue to supply for the Crusade, and our APCs now have some rather lovely decorative accessories.

Regards &c,

Lord Landris of the Serpent's Truth

Dark Apostle Ferrin-Kal of the 33rd Host of the XVII Legion smiled as the supposed Warmaster contacted his forces, attempting to re-direct them to some pointless battle in the Segmentum Pacificus. He had offered his "support" to their supposed Black Crusade in order to discover those who might be malleable and able to be shifted more directly to his cause. With his base of operations far to the Galactic East from the Galactic east, Ferrin-Kal would take little part in the operation as a whole, but he knew that every Astartes and Guardsmen occupied by his forces was not fighting elsewhere. The Gods had shown him the smoking ruin the Crusade would leave behind, and into that void armies of a billion faithful would flood following the great victories his forces were to win. Ferrin-Kal followed only the Gods, and the Gods had guaranteed his triumph. Armed with the Truth of the Word of Lorgar, Ferrin-Kal coded a simple transmission to the bulk of the Chaos forces.

"This is Ferrin-Kal, Lord of the 33rd Host of the XVII Legion, Corruptor of Physallia Tertius, Slayer of great Dante and Despoiler of Baal itself. To your Crusade I grant the Faith of the Word Bearers in the ultimate victory of the Gods. My men, however are my own. The Sons of Lorgar kneel only before the Gods, and any who stand before us are swept away. Tales of our victories should be proof enough of that. Whatever the outcome of this Crusade of yours, I swear to you on the throne of my Father that this galaxy will soon burn with the faith and fire of Chaos."

With that, Ferrin-Kal cut transmissions, and returned to orchestrating his grand plan for the Galaxy.

Just so everyone knows if they haven't seen the thread already, all the misadventures of the 33rd are documented here: http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=259152 I urge you to check them out. There will soon be great battles fought against the Imperial Guard, and I do intend to support the Black Crusade, but ultimately my line of fluff is already quite altered, and Ferrin-Kal's Crusade is his own.

Our casualties are high and the super heavy tanks "Apocalyptic Ruin", "Reavers Fury" and "Civilizations End" have been disabled, we have our units and some of the Black Reavers moving to secure them so our Dark Mechanicus allies can try to bring them back in to the service of the dark gods

We have lost almost three companies of Leman Russes and nearly all of the Vorkaden infantry in this battlezone. The Reavers themselves have lost nearly sixty Marines including twelve of the revered Chosen Terminators.

Yesterday, one of our advance reconnaissance units led by Lt. Minh has engaged, during an hour,due to communication breakdown, allied Astartes from the Ultramarines sent to reinforce our positions. Due to his actions, we have lost a platoon commander along with his enitre platoon. Also, the Ultramarines 5th Company has lost a Dreadnought along with 4 priceless Tactical Dreadnought Armour critically damaged. Despite the unexpected assault, the Marines have been able force a withdrawal of the unit involved.

After the mistake was realized, Lt. Minh has been summarily executed on charges of sheer incompetence.
