I shall endeavour to get a post up tonight! Lyras will probably be going in towards the objective from the outskirts as stealthily as an 8ft giant in power armour can before the main fighting starts.

Point me and my World Eaters in the right direction and stand back. Things are about to get messy.

It makes sense that different groupings might take on certain roles on this operation. I mean, I'd think there's sentries to silence, escape routes to block, security to nullify and a party full of officers to destroy.

They might want to account for whether or not these militia types have their own aerial transport, as that's another avenue of escape. So there should be at least two landing parties; one to throw out the cordon and close a perimeter, and the other to immediately disable escape vehicles. From they could take the Chateau Thorn from the top moving down while the security force maintains that perimeter, perhaps using some of the automated weaponry that may well be in place when an alert is triggered.

Oh, and Chaos demons. Because once the heat is turned on, the desperation starts.

That's sort of my vision for it, but I hope I left it broad enough for people to work with. Since some of these troops are ex-Solar Auxilia, they aren't pushovers, but tactics are up to the Blackshields. At the same time, I think of the game Space Marine, where Titus is this force of momentum and ponderous strength, where the Space Marines are incredibly powerful in a fight. They're also outnumbered, but that's generally the case in most circumstances anyway.

Or they could just steal the Rhinos, but then they're leaving people behind to report the theft and it seems doesn't seem Astartes-like to just bypass a winnable fight that helps degrade enemy command capabilities.

Post is up. I've put some suggestions as to what people could do when the main battle starts and set the scene a bit. Didn't want to move things along too far. Let me know if anything needs changing!

Makes sense. Putting the more disciplined legionnaires on sentry-kill/patrol duty. Not sure if the Luna Wolves quite qualify, but willing to go with that thought. Someone has to take out air transport though.

I'm not in charge, so I've just made suggestions. I've left it open so that people can decide what they want to do.

@Ozymandias@HeySeussIt should be noted: Bethuel is the only Alpha Legionnaire, or at least, he came alone. I intentionally chose that as an extension of his backstory.

Cool, ignore the part that references a squad and pretend it was directed at your character. I was writing on the assumption every character had a squad.

Great post ozy. Incredibly busy at work at the moment but will post up as soon as I can. I'm happy with my planned role as frontal assault when we get to the villa, doing what Kurak and company do best.

Blood for the Bloo---- oh wait......

Gold for the Golden Throne? Nah, that doesn't work either.

I'm willing to get a post rolling with that sentry-killing, perimeter controlling stuff.

Yeah, will do sometime today. I have to spend half my day dealing with the car hustlers as my lease is almost up and I need to hop on a new ride here.

Said hustling went on for seven hours, but I came out with two grand off the price.

Just to confirm, as I'm a little confused.

We've taken the port by force and have now moved stealthily towards the chateu. The chateu contains lots of high ranking officers but not the governor, and we're having to lay an ambush before we attack to cut off any retreat?

If that's the case I'll try and post up today and get the story up to where we are ready for the first assault. I would have posted earlier but work has had me on crazy hours since Monday. Cheers!

Finally had some time to post!

I've combined the first three posts into mine to form a continuous narrative, and also laid out a basic plan of attack. All that remains is for the attack to commence! I hope none of you mind me mentioning your characters in my post, hopefully doing what your characters are supposed to be doing how they are supposed to do it.

Looking forward to seeing this story through chaps.

Ok.... so the BlackShields (us) were taken to the port by the rogue trader who wanted revenge on his turncoat heretic ex-friends. We busted out of his supply ship, slaughtered all life at the space port, and then, "stealthily" mind you, made our way toward the Chateau, where some of us are hiding in the dirt covered by moss and grass.

How much time has passed since we attacked the port? Did we effectively prevent all communications? How far away is the Chateau? How are we communicating with each other? Is one of us acting as leader? What happened to our rogue-trader friend? Who among the Imperium knows about this operation right now? Are we in agreement it's daylight?

I would know such things IC. Do you have solid answers @HeySeuss so we all know wtf, exactly, is going on?

Chateau was the first stop, not the port itself.
