Report transmitted: Drevnan III, Adeptus Mechanicus
Destination: Titan, Grey Knights Monastery, Ordo Malleus
Transcript: 0400α - 0405Ω 12.08.03RY
Subject: Buildup of Xenos forces
Thought of the day: Through the destruction of our enemies, we earn our salvation.
Masters of the Inquisition, having just completed viewing of the morningâ€™s sentry drone reports, I have the dubious task of bringing to your attention a crisis of unimaginable magnitude. At 1353 on 12.07.03, disturbances were detected in the local area warp by our astropaths. Shortly thereafter, a tyranid hive fleet identified as Hive Fleet Hellion appeared in Drevnan III space. There was no observable activity for hours until an Ork spacehulk suddenly arrived on the other side of the planet, afterwhich the hive fleet moved on an intercept course. The astropaths hoped that both xenos would annihilate one another and thus spare us the trouble, but the two fleets merely joined formation. No one could have predicted what came next. The tyranid and ork fleets made planetfall and both forces mounted a joint surprise attack at the munitions works of Archeron. Our local military has since been unable to stem the relentless attack by the combined might of Hive Fleet Hellion and the Ork army, now known to be led by Warboss Sorllul Morka. Both forces are marching towards the capital of Drevnan as I write this. We need reinforcements, and quickly. I pray you will be quick to reach a consensus and send aid. Time is of the essence, and it is slipping away precariously.
Yours in faith,
Commander Mesmic Vertigas
Acting warmaster on Drevnan III
A force of orks and tyranids have joined together to assault the forgeworld of Drevnan III. With local resistance crumbling, the planetary authorities have sent a distress call to the nearest Adeptus Astartes installation, which turns out to be the stronghold of the Grey Knights chapter on Titan. The Ordo Malleus has heeded their brethrenâ€™s call, and now gird themselves for battle on the plains of Dierra on the outskirts of Drevnan.

Back from a long adventure.
We aren't crazy.... just a little exciteable... no harm in that, right?
Regardless, I'm damn annoyed about this whole waiting for the battle thing, especially considering the Intro which I found to be quite entertaining.
