As Tau patrols scoured the ruins of the dead world, Kathas, for the ancient alien technologies thought to lie there, a small band of orks laid in wait among the wrecked city-center. Their bestial faces lit with glee in anticipation for the right moment ready to strike. The cover was blown as the deffkoptas fired up too soon and triggered a thunderous Waagh! from the lead nobz which sent the ork-gits running!
The tau were alerted and then able to mount a hasty defence. Yet the green mass dragged them down in a fury war-shouts, whirling blades and ork muscle.
The orks rejoiced in their victory, firing guns into the sky and beating the ground with their heavy blades. The ruckus surely drew the attention of other enemies...
Farther to the south at a outpost in the wilderness, Dark Angel Space Marines met with their brother marines, the Blood Angels, in a trial combat drill to ready their forces for the coming war. The Blood Angels lost honor as the red marines performance was poor, uncoordinated and undisciplined, perhaps tainted by the curse of the black rage. The Dark Angels cheered in their success and then prayed to the Emperor for repentance of their vanity.
Shortly afterward, their sergeants received a comm-link message. "Xenos forces located to the north, regroup and prepare for battle. Praise the Emperor."
Results: Blood Angels receive +1 POI Point, and +1 Experience for the tactical squad and bike squad.
