Tau Expansion Fails - Volistad
Orks vs Tau Empire.
The Empire has selected a new target for conquest, the former Imperial world of Volistad. The Tau invasion force was small but more than enough to help secure a planet fall landing site. What ships made it through the orbital blockade touched down and unloaded it's cargo of fire warriors and battle suits. The initial assault went well and the Tau managed to capture much territory before being halted by the sheer number of greenskins.
The invasion was swiftly turned into a rout over several days until the two forces were intermixed and the invasion became nothing more than a bloodbath. The Orks outnumbered the Tau many times over and they had no chance of survival. Cut down to the last and their vehicles taken as looted trophies, the Tau Empire's initial attempt to secure a hold on this world failed in a storm of fire and blood.
