Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hacien Tecliar, a broken and ruined world of death and savage fighting; a world, which was once 'beautiful' and thriving as any other world of the imperium. Any incling of such activity had long since died away under the heavy fire of chaos and its followers. For its liberators however, things like that didnt matter since this world was nothing more than another battlefield where chaos held tight and the armed forces of the imperium of man had to pry this world from its corrupt grasp.
Sergeant Thamus looked at the eight faces around him in the dimly lit Valkyrie assault carrier. All belonged to the men he had fought alongside for nearly two decades during the crusade; men who had never let him down and men he had never let down. To his left sat troopers Roggel, Garik, Breslev, and Jamus; and to his right were troopers Clayton, Bruno, Matthien, and sergeant Johann. Every one of seventeenth platoon had known and fought alongside each other for the better part of their lives but that did not change the anger that filled the space when Thamus's and Johann's eyes met. Second squad was not Thamus's to lead, but until the end of this mission he would be part of it. First squad had been reduced to four strong, and dispersed amongst the other squads of seventeenth before the mission to increase the squad strength as close to full as possible.
"Alright men, touchdowns in a few moments and then we get to dance in hell yet again. once we get down move out for cover and help secure the area for the others to touchdown. Fourth squads gonna be with us but the buildings wont allow for more than two valks to drop us at a time."
As the valkyrie hit the ground, the bottom ramp opened and Thamus, Garik, Bruno, and Matthien ran out into cover as the rest of the squad stayed back in support. Thamus gave the sign for the rest of the squad to follow just as the second valkyrie touched down and began to open up.
My equipment checked I grab my helmet and put it on before turning to the squad "alright you heard the man move out. I want a wide line. No bunching" I run out crouching low looking for a solid bit of cover to give support if needed to the first half of the squad..

I quickly checked my gear was in working order and after quickly acknowledging my seniors orders, hopped out of the vehicle and headed for a nice cover position I had seen Johann run for.All the while I was keeping alert and low.

As 4th squad disembarkes for the valk Clayton runs out and moves to cover on the other side of the street just across from Roggel and Johann with his laspistol drawn and sreaching for targets "Here we go" Claton thinks to himself.

Once Bruno hits the ground behind cover, he checks first his pilot light on his flamer and all the flamer tanks and then the rest of his equipment. He searches around for a few moments before finding a broken window frame. There, he props up his flamer and searches quickly for targets.

Garik locked and loaded, running out onto the street, but remaining low in case they were fired upon. He found his way behind a solid barricade, and set his sniper rifle up on top of it, scanning for targets through the infrared scope as he knelt behind the relative safety of the concrete barrier.
"This is Sierra 1, in position, awaiting orders," Garik remarked methodically.

As the last of second squad leaves the valkyrie the hatch swings back up as the carrier lirfts off. In moments fourth squads valkyrie does the same and the two squads are left alone in hostile territory awaiting the next drop of troops. Both squads are alone with the remains of a bombed out husks of hab-units at the T-intesection of a pair of backroads. It was a miracle the valks had been able to land in such confined area's.
Thamus waves over the men of fourth so that they can hear him, "Alright, Sergeant Halle I want you to take your heavy bolter into one of the habs; if we find anyone I want the high ground to be ours." Turning to sergeant Johann, "We need to make sure the area is secure sergeant, were breaking second into two teams to make sure the area isnt any trap. Garik, Mathien, Roggel, and Jamus your with me; Johann has command of the rest of you. Make sure this area is secure, those valks are our only way to get the others here and I dont look forward to having to secure the objective with with under twenty men. Not that it wouldnt be half bad for braggin' rights." he finishes with a wry smile before getting up and running to the building with the others close behind; leaving Johann with Bruno, Breslev and Clayton.
Clayton rises in to a crouch and prepares to give the members of his team cover as they move to the buildings
"After you Sergeant, sir"

I take a moment to plan a good route to the buildings using the maximum amount of cover then turn to the squad "Right Breslev you got point myself and Bruno will cover you. Clayton you are our only medic so don't get your arse shot off" I give him a wry smile "thats an order" I pause for a second "Right four seconds between each piece of cover If they have got snipers I don't want us all in one place, Ok Breslev you still here or are you going to get a move on?".

I quickly said farewell and good luck to my squad mates and
quickly ran up to Thamus, always keeping low and scanning the landscape
that we had found ourselves in.I then asked Sergeant Thamus what
he thought we were about to face.
