+++The Raven Guard and Iron Hands did not expect the traitors grasp to reach them so quickly. Their reprise was brief but never did they become complacent. They were ready, with vengeance. Their staging point had been well prepared and all possible defenses were bolstered to maintain any chance of surviving the traitors advances.
Following the traitors planet-fall much of the hard ground established by the loyalists had been obliterated through sheer overwhelming numbers. The inner city of Ob Firma had seen the most stoic defense, no matter the loss of life, those aligned with the Emperor fought to maintain control of the very depths of this city and the Warmasters own Sons were unable to encircle the remnant rats that infested its underhive.
With a close victory the traitors await further instruction to initiate the final blow to the loyalists in the system. Meanwhile, once again, the loyalists are on the back foot and delve deeper into this system and spread their efforts between a series of important sites in Porta Fidei. Encrypted calls to distant loyalist reinforcements must be answered soon, or the remnants of these proud legions may be extinguished once and for all.+++
