+++ INCOMING TRANSMISSION+++

INQ-REF 00000159-240/SWS
LOCATION: HIVE WORLD ASHEK II
SUBSECTOR: SABBAT WORLD’S SECTOR
SEGMENTUM: PACIFICUS
+++WHAT FOLLOWS ARE AN ACCOUNT OF THE TRAINING SESSION THAT OCCURRED ON THE HIVE WORLD ASHEK II+++

Background: As part of agreements in the wake of the Sabbat World’s crusade the planet of Ashek II was to maintain a newly established Planetary Defense Force to strengthen the integrity of the sector. Lord Inquisitor Arkhan has been summoned to the task of training the newly formed PDF as part of a debt of gratitude and in a ploy to curry favor with prominent Inquisitors in the sector. The Hiveworld of Ashek II now completely cleansed of the demonic filth of Heritor Asphodel must now undertake the long task of rebuilding. In exchange for receiving training from the Lord Inquisitor’s Scions the planetary governor of Ashek II agreed to allow the crew rest and respite as well as a resupply of Dawnhammer’s dwindling stocks. 

After nearly two weeks of intensive training by Tempestor Prime Rynn and Commissar Kline of Krieg, the newly formed PDF of Ashek II are ready to engage Arkhan’s Scions. The Planetary Defense Forces consisted of infantry platoons, a Leman Russ squadron and several lifter Sentinels retrofitted with weaponry. In addition to the deployed Scions, Tech Priest Izmirian is deployed to maintain equipment and ensure the adherence to proper Mechanicus protocol.

The training exercise occurs in a remote portion of the Hive, devoid of inhabitants to ensure minimal damage to the parts of the city that are currently under construction. After a lengthy engagement with the PDF able to hold their own Lord Arkhan deems the forces of Ashek II suitably trained if not under-armed a case that, in the scope of the wider Imperium, is unfortunately not uncommon. 

After a week of shore leave Dawnhammer left orbit fully supplied with a course set for the edges Segmentum Tempestus for the first part of a new campaign of reconquest and exploration at the edges of Imperial Space.
