Calculated Strike - T'Vora
Tau Empire vs Ultramarines
The leaders of the Tau forces of T'Vora knew that they had the power to the destroy the raiding Dark Eldar but not the might of the Space Marines in the aftermath. They made a decision to turn upon their allies and in doing so proved the Imperium right in their dealings with aliens.
It began with a surprise attack by the Kroot in the heart of their own camp. Thus distracted by the weaker aliens, the Ultramarines were not prepared for the main strike by the Tau. The attack did not last long before the Space Marines retreated from the scene of battle. They attempted twice to drive out the Tau but were rebuffed on both occasions. They prepared to try for a fourth attempt when astropathic messages arrived calling the chapter to other duties.
