My master,

Find attached the force disposition of the Eradicators Strike Force sent to investigate the increased operations of Dark Eldar pirates near Corinthe. The strike force is made up of elements of the 3rd and 6th Companies with additional elements from the 1st and 8th Company being assigned to the cohort due in part to the 8th Company’s extensive experience with these particularly foul xenos pirates. May the Emperor scorn them as he sees fit.

The force has the capability of being deployed by drop pod assault, although the Thunderhawk Gunship and Thunderhawk Transporter have both been extensively modified by the Chapter armoury and several elements have been attached from the Adeptus Mechanicus trained portion of the Chapter, the Techmarines, to maintain the extensive mechanical aspect of the force.

Most Honoured Brother-Captain Zachareal retakes his post as Watch Commander and Commander of the recently refitted Strike Cruiser, Rex Imperialis, may the Holy Emperor bless her hull from all the vile hateful things of the Warp, after returning from his secondment to the Storm Wardens Chapter of his most Holy and Beneficient Emperor’s Adeptus Astartes. Brother-Captain Zachareal takes with him even more experience with armoured assaults for which the Storm Wardens are so famed.

Venerable Brother Daedalus, a veteran of the Jormund Campaign, the campaign as you may recall caused Jormund to become a dead world, God-Emperor bless their souls, also joins this cohort. His extensive years of experience and cunning should add greatly to the ground assaults that will be necessary against the defences of the Eldar’s Dark Kin.

A substantial retinue from Captain Zachareal’s own 1st Company has been assembled for this strike force, their blessed Tactical Dreadnought Armour impervious to all but the most powerful weapons. Surely Captain Zachareal is planning to use this group, along with himself and Codicier Chamuel to perform devastating boarding actions, where up close the survivability and crushing combat prowess of the Terminators will come to bear.

An extensive armoury has been attached to this force and it is thought that the Strike Group will not be stopping for a refit after it has dealt with the Pirates and will instead make all speed to the Jericho Reach to combat the impending Tau and Tyranid incursions after stopping briefly for resupply at Kar Duniash.

Your most trusted and loyal servant,
Recédius.
