You have been warned.
The newly minted Kill-Team is dispatched sans name to assist Inquistitor Kalistradi purge a genestealer infestation on the planet Avalos’ capital city, Lordsholm.
After a few weeks of transit aboard the Imperial Navy Frigate Valiant, they arrive at Avalos and find that things are far worse than the Inquistitor’s communique had mentioned. The Valiant’s captain charges in fast, performing a full burn from the warp point. Forty-seven minutes later, they are roaring into orbit, and being set upon by Kraken bioships from Hive Fleet Dagon. Wracked from bow to stern by incoming fire, and thus robbed of the ability to make the final, last minute corrections to its trajectory by the damage to its power and propulsions systems, the Valiant is destined to a fiery plunge into the oblivion of Avalos’ atmosphere.
Faced with certain death aboard ship, the Kill-Team makes for the launch bays and evacuates the ship in their drop pod. Battered by debris from their own ship during the egress, the drop pod is severely damaged. The landing is graceless and final, crashing throught the roof of a church in the capital city. Nowhere near their intended drop point.
The Kill-Team discovers that the city is in widespread revolt. Anarchists have chosen thhe emergency crisis of the tyranid arrival to stage a violent revolt against the appointed Imperial leadership. The Marines meet PDF Captain Ascote holding a perimeter in the city streets outside and surrounding the chapel with 600 PDF loyalists.
