War has come to Cortona.
The 316th Grand Battalion of the IV Legion refused to join the slaughter at Istvaan and have fled, pursued by elements from both their erstwhile brothers in the traitor forces and escaping remnants of the loyalists, aided by splinter forces of other loyal Legions eager for vengeance.
Seeking refuge and resupply on the last world they brought to compliance, Cortona, they arrive in system bloodied and bruised to find no respite, but a world in turmoil; their garrison slaughtered, cities levelled and a bitter Mechanicum civil war raging amongst the ruins.
With no way forward or back, Warsmith Varela makes planetfall and prepares his defences amid the shattered ruins of the planet’s capital city. As dusk falls on the second day of fortification work, the night sky is ablaze. Loyal and traitor fleets arrive piecemeal and engage in orbit without hesitation, every one of them disgorging drop pods and gunships in low orbit, often being annihilated by enemy fire even before their full compliment of troops are deployed.
The stage is set for a short and brutal campaign. War calls. Will you answer?
