Flashlights and Cardboard- A Guardsman's Ballad

Session 3

The Second Battle of Ornos

After regrouping at FOB Shelyron, 3rd Battalion receives orders from Commissar Olamin to support the main column of Dragoons moving to retake Ornos. They borrow a heavily modified Tauros from Techpriestess Octavia, and set out with the rest of their comrades. On the main highway into the city, the Battalion receives a vox comm from an Adeptus Sororitas convent; the same that Sister Abigail belonged to, asking for help. They were pinned down in the Ornos Triage facility by snipers, and they needed support. The group decided to help. They split off from the convoy, and on approach to the hospital, a burst of traitor las-fire sent their Tauros swerving into a lamppost. The group dismounted and took cover in a ditch on the side of the road, slowly advancing. Dieron stayed with the Tauros, attempting to help mend it’s machine spirit. Eventually, the rest of the party linked up with the Sisters of Battle and their Death Korps of Krieg bodyguards at the hospital.
When Lt. Gerrick asked for a SITREP from the Krieg commander, he attacked, presumably affected by Chaos, and was put down by Gerrick and Olgan. A platoon of heretics was spotted moving into some hab blocks down the street from the Triage Facility, so Gerrick took command of the Kreig bodyguards and moved to drive the heretics back. After several minutes of intense room to room fighting, the hab block is clear, and the Sisters saved. Strangely, Gerrick gets a vox from Commissar Olamin ordering all units back to the Imperial flagship Imperator.
