Northern Front - Battle of Eglurn System~ 1st battle on Draonides
Loyalists Involved In The Conflict
Traitors Involved In The Conflict
As part of 1st Captain Sigismund's master plan to retake the Eglurn system from the clutch of the traitors he had realized he must secure the Solar power manufactories of Draonides. Unbeknownst to the Loyalists the secretive Thousand sons legions had sent one of their few remaining cabals to disrupt the systems energy production center. Even more aloof to Sigismund and his task force is the true purpose Magnus sent a force of his few remaining sons to the far flung world. Imperial records show that the underground hives of Draonides were built in massive tunneled out caverns lined with ancient xenos runes, and those whom ventured outside of the Hive walls almost always vanished.
Lead by Magistus Amon, coupling advanced scanning tec and his impressive psychic powers he was able to discern the point of the imperial task forces origins. Amon allowed the Imperial fists to advance upon their intended target, the central colony, and then began his assault.
The thousand sons lashed out with their Psykickly shrouded Cerberus heavy tank destroyer, lances stabbing out of what was was thin air. Imperial fist forces responded and set up fire cordons, ever the pragmatist Sigismund had a contingency. It arrived in the form of a dread claw drop pod full of a cataphractii squad of terminators armed with anti tank weapons. They shredded the Cerberus before it could inflict any serious damage.
The battle raged, the casualties piled as the imperial fists disciplined fire ravaged the Thousand sons attackers. Traitor castellax appeared out of the mist seemingly also and dispatched the super heavy killing terminators. As Amon enveloped the loyalists with outflanking units. But these were no ordinary astartes, these were Imperial fists and the escort of their fist captain no less. They met the second ambush head on disciplined fire drove the attackers back until finally Magistus Amon joined the fray.
Himself and his Sehkmet squad beamed into the battle in a flash of light and made up for lost time by dispatching a 7th legion Leviathan dreadnought. Sigismund had been waiting for this moment, wiping fresh thousand sons blood off of his blade, he lead his personal escort squad of Terminator assault veterans towards the Magister.
Reckonising the prowess of Sigismund, Magistus Amon chanted several spells one of them turning him and his squad ethereal. Barely visible to the naked eye, Amon hoped this would give him the edge he needed to lay low the Master duelist. Alas! it was for naught, Sigismund charged the shimmering thousand sons with a thundering cry. With his keen mind and some would say 'adamantium will' he was able to call out Amon, wanting the glory of slaying Sigismund himself the traitor accepted. As if he wasn't protected by dark sorcery at all, Sigismund flew through the air with a masterful coup'de grace. A single, masterful strike removing Amons head from his body. Thus the spell was broken and the Imperial fist terminators were able to smash the venerated Sehkmet apart with their hammers.
The rest of the Thousand sons spent and exhausted retreated at the sight of their master being so swiftly dispatched... or was he? Through further tricks of sorcery and newly found dark arts Magistus Amon was able to escape his fate, his being occupieing a new form. From which he is able to plot ways to unravel the mysteries of Draonides, and recover his honor by enacting revenge upon Sigismund.
