Wrath of the Orks - Callista VI


221114.M41
Orks vs Craftworld Iyanden / Imperial Knight.

Steadily the Imperium has been losing ground upon the shrine world of Callista VI. The orks have managed to overwhelm the defenders due to constant reinforcements from the nearby Volistad system, the seat of Ghazghull's power in the sector.

At dawn on 221114.M41 the orks launched their next offensive against the Imperium. Their target this time was a detachment of Imperial Knights recently deployed to the war. The battle started as the sun crypt across the tomb fields and lasted for thirteen straight hours. After six hours, the Imperium received unexpected aid in the arrival of a force of Eldar from the Iyanden Craftworld.

Having inflicted heavy losses upon the Knights, the orks changed the focus of their wrath onto the newly arrived Eldar. The Eldar kept up a steady onslaught on the greenskins for many hours. They took heavy casualties doing so however. Soon the air was filled with the sound of smoking engines as a flight of Burna-Bommer's approached from the north.

The orks lost many of their number as the promethium tanks fell from the low flying aircraft but the Eldar suffered even more casualties. As the enemy almost routed under the bombardment the orks sent in their mighty meganobz. The Iyanden guardians were almost totally annihilated. Ahead, the bommers came about for a return attack.

As night fall crept over the burning landscape, the Eldar realised that they could not hold the orks at bay and retreated through their portals leaving the Imperial forces to suffer the renewed wrath of the greenskins.
