Quaddus Campaign – Status Phase 3

With the evacuation of the Quaddus System well in hand all the action has consolidate on Quaddus Prime. The Imperial Navy, what’s left of it, teaming up with T’au and Ulthwe ships have been shuttling the human survivors to Quaddus Prime where the Ulthwe have managed to get a webway portal operational and will begin to lead the human survivors to a suitable planet out of this doomed system. The Gene Stealer Cult have secured the mining planet of Quaddus Tertius and are awaiting their ascension. The Tyranid hive has also consolidated to Quaddus Tertius awaiting the rest of their hive to arrive. The Imperial Guard have assumed the logistics for the evacuation of Quaddus Prime. The T’au have been keeping the hoard of Orks from over running the refugee camps while they are also searching for valuable artifacts on Quaddus Quartus. With most of the planets evacuated or abandoned, the T’au are throwing stronger and stronger detachments at the Orks in an effort to buy more time for the Ulthwe and Imperial Guard to get civilians out of the system before the “stilling” or the Tyranids take over the whole Quaddus system.

Quaddus Campaign: Tainted Gue’fio’shas

While out on routine patrol Aun’mo and his patrol were ambushed by a fast patrol of what appeared to be gue miners. They turned out to be more like the Fio’shas1. They traveled in a large pack with a unit of fast bikes as their shock troops. The battle was tenatious and brutal; their flamer weapons turned out to be too much for the Aun’mo’s patrol to handle. These Gue’fio’sha. These gue’fio’sha fought with a tenacity that was more than that the gue’la, known as Astra Militarum by the Gue, so Aun’mo ordered tests done on one of the remains left behind.

When the tests came back it was discovered that these human worker warriors were tainted. They were not tainted by what the humans call chaos, but something even more insidious – they were tainted by Y’he DNA. These humans were classified as Gue’fio’shas’y’he. Soon, a patrol would be tasked to capture a live specimen for testing.

Quaddus Campaign: First Contact

Aun’mo landed planet side in the designated meeting place, a remote ruins at the mouth of a valley. The place was eerily quiet, devoid of any life, not even what the Gue’la call “rats”. Scans showed no signs of life. He tasked the Mal’kor1 team under the command of Mal’kor’ui Ya’va’eldi2 with overwatch of the ruined town. Aun’mo sent Shas’vre Ju’s XV25 Stealth Suits on recon.

Several decs3 later, still no sign of the gue contact, or any life for that matter. If it wasn’t for Aun’mo’s presence the Shas’la would have been very uneasy. The Pech’la4 and their unruly hounds were clucking uneasily in their native language, Aun’mo could tell that they were on the verge of breaking. “Patience isn’t one of their strongest attributes.”, Aun’mo thought to himself.

Quaddus Campaign: Help Arrives

The shipment of Gue’la1 minerals was late. Very late. The Gue’la should have been at the drop site 4 rotaa2 ago. Tension was high in the convoy, trying to hide this long in the Gue’la system was dangerous. There were not enough military ships in this convey to put up a fight if the Gue’ron’sha3 were to find the convoy lurking this close to an Imperial world. That is when the Kor’la on comms rose from her station and walked over to the Kor’o Au’lys.
