Captain "Hell" Holden heard the Captains plea, and responded over the vox. "This is Captain Holden of the Coperus 16th scout company. We are en route to you and me and my squad will be arriving in 5 minutes from the West."
Turning he smiled at his squad. "Time to go to work boys and girls, check your weapons, we are going to be in the thick of it in 5." He turned and winked at Sara and Rebecca, the two who have been with him since he got the squad before checking his lasgun and chainsword. He looked up and Sara winked at him. Smiling he turned and yelled to his squad "Lets move out, Sole rearguard with Hannah, Becks right behind me, everyone else scatter formation."
They moved professionaly and quickly towards the scene. "Sara, when we get there find a vantage point and give us sniper cover, Jack your her spotter. Becks your with me snipe anyone seeming to spur the rioters on, Sole, Liam, Simon, Damien and Hannah grab some cover and keep your head down. Hannah before you join the rest check for wounded guardsmen, they are our priority not the rioters."
He got a series of "Yes sir." Smiling he moved round the corner.
As you arrive to the scene you see rioters making their way to an Imperial Guard Gate who are open firing. Their is a large body of dead rioters. Their are several wounded guardsmen at the gate with their fellow soldiers who are still holding out. "Kill the pawns of the Heretics" yells the crowd as they throw home made explosives and shot several las guns and firearms. Then suddenly Captain Richard Premitin, was hit in the leg by sniper fire as he tried to move to get in a better firing position.
Astalan was a formidable looking marine, his bionics giving him a monstrous look. The tech marine walked past a tangle of assault marines, one of them stared at the son of the Mechanicus with blank eyes, his mouth open loosely. Astalan saw a blue armored librarian standing with a tactical squad in a large archway, Astalan proceeded towards the small group and stopped, making the sign on the Aquila he said "Brothers it would seem i am to accompany you this day my name is Astalan" he waited for a few seconds and the Librarian stepped forwards, a force staff held in hand and said "I am Librarian Markius brother it is a pleasure to be serving with you". Astalan tried to talk with the tactical marines but every time he tried to get close they turned their heads, pretending to be checking weapons the tech marine slowly began to feel unwanted within this group.
The Librarian suddenly got a message. "It appears that the Inquisition has found out of our problem. They are trying to eliminate the source and want's to join forces. We are to meet just outside a city." said the Librarian as he signal to move out and head into the rhino.

'Are you SURE of this Toro?' She asked for the hundredth time.
'Affirmative, m'lady. The transmissions I've intercepted confirm that the cardinal will be waiting for us at the landing pad.' Replied a large bulky and mechanical man. His name was Taur-Logis, though Daniela had nicknamed him 'Toro' 2 minutes after the tech-priests of the adeptus mechanicus she acquired him from were out of earshot.
'Flekked and drizzled, so much for my bleedin' cover. Why can't they just let me get on with my bleedin' job instead of giving me a full welcome.'
'Estimates deign 87% that the cardinal likes to stand on protocol and honors.' he replied.
'yeah, but he'll be traveling with a retinue, and have the cannoness with him probably too. From the personnel files I read, she's someone that likes action. I'm going to need to make a good first impression if I'm going to use them.'
'Chances of the Cannoness being with him are 4%, intercepted transmissions did not mention her, and the number of ecclesiarchy vehicles at the motorpool indicate only a small squad of sisters are present. The Cannoness would most likely travel with her own Immolator, instead of a Rhino transport.'
'Still it has me - oomph.' She almost fell over at the hard landing the shuttle made, just as she was holstering her needle pistol, she recovered and tapped her com.
'Michael, what's waiting outside?'
'The Cardinal, and a squad of sisters, though not wearing power armour or carrying bolters. probably novices. No Ecclesiarchal honor guard.'
'Gotcha, hope your dress uniform is still as shiny as ever.'
'As if I ever wear it.' He replied directly to her as he left the cockpit and entered the main cabin. 'See you made a flekking mess of this place.'
'I'll have Deirdre fix it up with Toro.' she replied as they headed to the rear cabin, walking to the side exit door. She had planned to leave from the rear fo the shuttle in a hovercar, making a good show at the airport to show off herself as a merchant notary.
Hitting the switch to the side door, she stepped out on foot, followed by the arbites in his black and shiny 'dress' uniform. Looking every bit the dignified bodyguard.
She gave a small smile at the cardinal, nodding in respect to his introduction.
'Thank you for the welcome Cardinal, I shall see to it that the matter will not be underestimated by the PDF and the Arbites.'
She nodded at the sister superior. 'It will be an honor to lead a group of the God-Emperor's faithful to prove their devotion. Please send your Cannoness my highest regards, and ask her for to to have an audience with her, there are some things regarding this matter that I will need to discuss with her personally at the convent, as soon as I've finished unpacking.' She handed her a data slate. 'This is a list of things on here that I'm going to be needing, so she can prepare myself properly for this situation at hand.'
She looked over the novices, seeing that they were indeed well trained and disciplined as sisters, though had not yet been given the fleur-de-lis tattoo on their cheeks, signifying they had not yet made the grade to full sister yet, she pondered a moment, as she inspected them critically to best fit them into her arrival, then nodded and turned to the cardinal.
'I best not take up more of your time, Or flight control as they are keeping my originally intended landing pad still open for me. For now, the sisters will follow my bodyguard, Michael, he will go ahead and prepare for their arrangements to stay with me.'
Making a bow, she took a few steps back, then returned to the shuttle, leaving Michael with the novices. As soon as she was inside, she turned to Taur.
'Toro, prepare a few letters of complaint about being diverted to this landing pad, and having my effects searched. Arrange it. Also arrange for some notifications to some local security services to check for prices and such for 8 extra bodyguards, requirement: Female, well trained, but with sense of style. And use the shadow account for purchasing some proper non-ecclesiarchial combat fatigues and such and something to get rid of those markings on their carapace armours. You can get their sizes from the auspex. Oh and when we have landed, inform flight control that because of this apparent danger zone we've landed in, that lady Chelsea Will remain at her shuttle on the pad until her extra escort arrives. And make arrangements at the hotel that I've decided to rent the whole top floor, instead of just the pentsuite, to accommodate my guards.'
She grinned, that will give us plenty of room to also set up a proper lab if we have to over there and an armoury, she thought.
Michael turned to the sisters and smiled his most devilish smile 'Alright ladies, the boss has informed me of what we're going to do. before we head into the enemy, we'll prepare ourselves first. Go back to the convent, and put on some civvie clothes, then walk out and meet me at mhhh' He checked his dataslate with the map of the city 'Grenoir Street, near Sabbat boulevard, stick in groups of 2 or 3, I'll be picking you up and taking you to our transport in 2 hours, put your hardware and armour in some civvie bags, we'll need it, just not the uniforms, I'll be getting you some new ones.'
Then he left them, a little bewildered at his odd instructions and entered the main starport, as he approached customs, he could already hear some cries of outrage, the faces at the custom looking very hard at him as he presented is id, labelling him as the personal aid and bodyguard of Lady Chelsea Danaris of merchant house deGourdon.
Already the news of this outrageous and impossible woman was spreading around.
He headed into the city, reading his data slate to pickup the arrangements made for the cover of the sisters.
The Sister Superior nodded her head and made the sign of the Aquila. "I will inform the Canoness of your request." said the Sister Superior as she then made her way to the rhino. She came back a minute latter. "The Canoness is willing to meet with you. Yet right now she is on the battlefield. You can meet her there." said the Sister Superior who then read the date slate. As for the novices sister they were a bit confused by this order but none the less made their way to the convent. Yet it would be a bit while before they could return.
Bob Carmon was a dangerous looking marine, however that was nothing to the reputation that preceded him. Was it not for his personality he would likely has become a very influential member of the Blood Ravens. He walked purposefully towards his new Havoc squad, which if seen optimistically could be described as small and efficient, however drawing from his previous battle experience was better described as suicidally small. He sheathed his two chainswords as he neared his squad and placed his hand forward, the marines each shook it.
'My name is Bob Carmon, I am your leader, listen to me. Our mission will be dangerous enough with such small numbers, if we don't stick together we will die. From your files I can see that you are both well trained, but the problem we face is that we have to do our job with a Librarian. We defend each other, he defends himself, you will always put our team before him. Do you understand?' Carmon was greeted with two satisfying 'Yes sirs'
'Carmon it's good to see you again, shouted a Blood ravens Librarian walking toward the small group. 'Yeros my friend it seems that unlike me your aspirations have rose you up the ranks. We are friends, and you are a higher rank than me, but you know full well I am more experienced and a better leader than you. My men follow me, not you. Do not expect us to follow you if we believe we are better served by ignoring you.' Carmon's reply was even and calculated, however laced with a well hidden threat. Namely this is my squad and I command them not you.
"I understand. I would probably do the same thing if I was you, brother. Yet right now we require to take action. Their is a mutant rebellion in a city. This is a large force and is a large threat to the city. It seems we would be one of the ideal squads to send and clean this problem up. Yet we've also been getting reports of possible mutant sightings at water filtration plant. If you wish to command then choose between the two missions." said the Librarian as he waited for the marine response.

Deeku was lieing on his back, enjoying the sun. In the back, he could hear the crackle of Las fire as the rioters were being shot at. Munching on an apple with one hand, his other on a small vox unit, listening to the transmissions of the guardsmen.
"This is Captain Richard Premitin. Were are seriously outnumbered here and require assistance." -/- "This is Micheal Rexxan, I'm trying to locate the leader but been unable to do so. Do you want me to lay down some suppression fire. Yet if I do their is a good chance the leader will escape." -/- "Hold on for now. Keep looking. We can hold them off for a bit longer."
Lazily, he turned on his belly and crawled up to the lip of the building, his camo cloak spreading out over him, making him one with the building. In the distance he saw a group of rioters being gunned down by a small group of guardsmen, almost surrounded, and only their heavy las fire keeping them from being overrun. He took out his scope and looked through it, immediately spotting the captain voxing even as he shot another rioter with his pistol.
'Hello captain Premitin, I'm afraid that our meeting will be cut short very soon.' He grinned as he fitted his scope onto his longlas, clicking it into place and making minor adjustments to calibrate for the range and winds. At 800 yards, even his hotshot would not be at optimum power, but that is why he used it, a regular longlas wouldn't even be able to put a dent in butter at this range, while his was still lethal. Slowly he moved his gun in position and took sight of the captain, he was well in cover behind the sandbags, even he would be hard pressed to make this shot. Patiently he waited, noting that the captain waved over a guardsmen, his finger slowly sliding around the trigger, he exhaled slowly, then, just as the captain rose to make room for the guardsman to take his place, he pulled the trigger.
((OOC: See my above post for Lord Ramo and wait for him to post))
Rob stein looked at the orc onslaught and swore loudly
It was an impressive and terrifying sight and he looked at the hotshot lasgun in his hand and sighed
"We are supposed to hit the transports and then the deffkoptas but i dont think this will do much damage
Lets give the orcs some fire"
His squad nodded waiting patiently for the orcs to move into range
Looking to the left he saw the gunner of a lascannon blasted backwards by a slug through the head and he smiled
The orcs rushed nearer closing the gap" yet they were still out of range of even the lascannon and Stein rushed towards it , his squad followed close behind taking up positions around the cannon as the green tide moved ever closer
(OOC: if u dont want me to take the lascannon just say that another heavy weapons guy came and took my place but i have no chance of blowing up a battle wagon with anything else)
The Ork continue to rush towards the base coming in range of the lascannons. Just behind the vehicles are several stormboyz.
Lugar leaned forward from where hi was sitting and spoke loudly " Well what are we waiting for lets do this!" he jumps up holding the hilt of his powersword his two men lept up with him and his servo skull was hovering by his head as they started to walk out of the warehouse.
"If you guys need help finding leads then I suggest the black market. You will find the lowest scum bags their. Now please get a move on. The longer you stay here the more civilians are killed." said the Governor as he left the building.
Kate sat in the back of a vendetta heading straight for the battle at the IG base. Kate looked through the detailed report that the Govenor had given her on the where abouts off the ork leaders base. When the attack had started she had decided that there would be more chance if she struck soon, either after the battle or if the ork warboss leads a personal attack. She checked her digital weapons and neural shredder when the pilot announced that they would arrive in 5 minutes. She strapped her digital weapons to her waist and then checked that her poison blades were safely stowed in the compartment on her boot. Smiling she thought of how she would end a life for the Emperor, and how she would prove to the Callidus Temple Master that she, Kate, was not a novice but a steely killer.
As the aircraft makes it ways to the IG base several missiles are fired at it. Yet they all miss. The Ork attack began to get closer to the IG base meaning the aircraft would possible get hit by enemy fire.
