Battle Summary

With the initial failure to eradicate the surviving Iron Hands from the surface of Lincon Secondus the interest of Lord Commander Eidolon was piqued. Perhaps there was some glory to be had in this backwater system after all. Together with a retinue of Palatine Blades and other devoted supplicants, Eidolon headed for the surface to exterminate the sons of Medusa.

Meanwhile, Iris Actavis, leader of the Iron Hands that made it to the Lincon system, had established a small base of operations in the abandoned mining city "Absolution". The ruins of a time when the Imperium had flourished on the valuable resources in the planets crust provided the Iron Hands with a defensive position. From there they could head out to establish contact with other possible Loyalist forces on the planet and collect the resources and munitions they required to repair their ship.

The battle was a brutal but swift affair (see gallery with extensive description below) where both sides took heavy casualties. What finally tipped the balance was when Lord Commander Eidolon saw his moment to get his glory and challenged the Iron Hands Praetor Iris Actavis. In his arrogance, the Lord Commander underestimated the resolve of the Iron Hand leader, not to mention his extensive wargear, and was struck by a glancing hit to his temple. The unconscious Lord Commander was dragged to safety by his surviving retinue under covering fire and the now disoriented Emperor's Children were defeated. Eidolon had been wounded, but worse yet, so had his pride...
