Most of the Dark Angels, thus, would depart. There was little objection amongst the leadership. Those that did found themselves assigned to the job of babysitting this planet. The reasoning behind Kairo’s departure was sound. Of the 126 marines on planet, only 24 were left behind with a pair of dreadnaughts and predators to keep the peace among the countless slaughtered.
The remainder of the taskforce left to retake Forasev. Though there was only around 100 marines, they had supreme confidence. Though the orks would outnumber them 50 to 1, they had the support staff, and more importantly the same great weapon Zed had used recently; surprise.
The Dark Angels had complete confidence.
