The latest phase of the Feud of the Red Clouds was a savage affair. The war struck hard at the inhabitants of Rutilus as the various factions began bombing the aerial platforms. Now, not just pilots were in the line of fire, but the techadepts and menials as well. The war began to take a heavy toll on machines, materials and personnel. Again, the forces of Mistress Merciebvaux were pushing hard to destroy all resistance. However, everywhere they were met with stiff opposition. The forces of Boss Badaxe and Magos Archivald pushed back just against the Chaos advance hard. Eager to take control of the planet themselves. Boss badaxe used his typical ork savagery and cunning, while Magos Archivald looked to his Tau allies for aid.
The continuing assault by Mistress Mercievaux and Magos Cy Belle seems impossible to maintain. Commander Plegabo and Eir’Yuan the Corsair Prince seem all too willing to let the Chaos forces vent their fury early, and counterattack once they are spent.
the Tau air blockade in the outer ring of Severus has cut of support to these Chaos outposts. Tormentor bombers have been deployed to bases on the area of Station Alpha. and have been conserving their fuel. the Feud of the Red Clouds remained quiet. the corsair’s are expereincing their own internal unrest. so far away from the over sight of Boss Badaxe. and the unprotected bombers have proven no match for the Corsair interceptors. the Tau air blockade of the outer edges of Station Severus makes the task of flying a bomber from Severus to Lambda almost impossible. These internal tensions have forced Eir’yuan to consider moving to a stronger offensive footing earlier than he had planned. Pockets of Ork elements within the area of Ro have also been oddly quiet. However. Dark Eldar Razor Wings. However. they have been unable to launch further attacks. they have not pressed the attack with . Only the largest bombers could make the trip without refueling. Despite their success at clearing the airspace around Station Lambda. The numbers of Dark Eldar participating in the campaign continue to rise. Chaos forces had managed to implant themselves in scattered pockets around Station Ro. and aircraft for a potential future assault. only minimal fighter support has been available to protect the Tormentors. Due to the distances involved. Envoy T’wa’la and her allies strategy was to attack outwards. No new attacks were directed at the Tau and their Gue’la allies. rather than his smaller numbers. and to keep their enemies at arm’s reach has proven to be successful. From these hard won forward-operating bases they have been deployed on long range raids into the regions around Station Lambda. to date the Eldar forces in Lambda have been able to easily intercept and turn back these forays into their airspace. Controlled By: Eldar Warzone 2: Station Ro Around Station Ro. As part of her all-out assault. the growing unrest from his allies and the Dark Eldar themselves have caused him to consider using the Dark Eldar raiders to spearhead a targeted offensive. Plus. Lambda is just a much a target of Mistress Mercievaux’s war plans as any of the other stations.Inquisitorial Report: A4567/893/beta Reference: Feud of the Red Clouds Access Code: ********** Level: Magenta ++Sit Rep by Region++ Warzone 1: Station Lambda The distance between Station Lambda and Station Severus is vast. they have instead turned toward petty internal disputes? Either way. Exactly where and how is still to be decided. Perhaps. This has unsettled many of the more orthodox members of the Eldar expedition.WIP Scuplted by Airspace Member: Easy E However. The corsair prince had been all too willing to keep his rivals battling for control of Station Alpha and letting them expend their numerical superiority on each other. foodstuffs. However. Therefore.
How long this unofficial peace can hold is unclear. They plan to capitalize on the gains made by their air blockade. and siege of the xenos and traitors has taken its toll. Routine air patrols have become harder for Imperial forces to maintain.

The Orks have responded in typicallu Ork fashion. Dark Eldar Raiders are still being sighted in the region. In addition. leaving only the immediate airspace surrounding Station Alpha in Imperial hands. The situation for the Imperials is rather desperate. they have not offered battle. as resources have begun to run low. By trying to kill stuff. the Chaos and Ork forces had mostly eyed each other across the turbulent airspace of Warzone 3. Both sides have seemed content to consolidate their position. However. Controlled by: Disputed Warzone 4: Station Epsilon The skies around Station Epsilon have been some of the most hotly contested airspace during the Feud of the Red Clouds. as spare parts and routine maintenance has become difficult. and attempt to cripple the Chaos threat at its heart. Many strategists believe they are gathering intelligence for future xeno attacks. and fortify the gains they made in the initial attack waves. Chaos and Ork forces have solidified their hold over the region. the Tau have been able to focus on upgrading Gue’la aircraft to help in the defense of Station Ro. this stage of the campaign has been relatively quiet. the Air and Fire caste warriors have begun planning the next phase of their attacks into the region around Station Severus. and upgrading the air defense systems of the station. The last cycle was no exception as Chaos forces attempted to cripple the Orks to such a degree as to knock them out of the war. the Space Elevator of Station Alpha has been able to keep the defenders able to resupply badly needed foodstuffs and water from the Imperial logistical support of Taskforce 351. Thankfully. To complicate things. Controlled by: Tau Imperial Reinforcements Painted by Airspace member: World Bleeder . Without the harassing attacks from Chaos and the Orks. For there part.
Ork pockets have penetrated the outer edges. and heretics has managed to hold strong. Controlled by: In Dispute Warzone 5: Station Severus The airspace around Station Severus has remained securely in Chaos hands. They exacted a heavy toll on Ork construction facilities. and the Tau aligned forces have managed to place a limited air blockade around some outlying stations. in the face of stagnation and lack of clear victory. No one has seriously challenged them in this region. However. renegades. the coalition of traitors. The growing strategic disputes inside the Chaos command bunker may prove to be a decisive final element in the outcome of the war. This could prove be a point that other factions can exploit in the coming days of the war. there are some quiet whispers about there own ability to keep up with the growing logistical demands of the escalating Feud. However. these raids were heavily supported by chaos fighter cover all the way to the target zone. These raids also provided another useful purpose. Another key piece of information the Raids have uncovered is the poor command-and-control Ork forces possess. So far. Magos CyBelle has pressed Mistress Merceivaux to expel these elements from the outlying platforms.Inquisitorial Report: A4567/893/beta Reference: Feud of the Red Clouds Access Code: ********** Level: Magenta This weakness in command-and-control may leave the Orks vulnerable to feint attacks. On Station Severus. However. However. the Chaos attack around Station Epsilon focused on Tormentor bombing raids. so far Chaos forces have not been able to capitalize on these weaknesses. Controlled by: Chaos Orks and Chaos go Head-to-Head Painted by Airspace members: CheesyRobman and Vedal Slayer Like much of the Chaos efforts on Rutilus. Chaos Tormentor raids were far more effective around Station Epsilon than in other warzones. It is not uncommon for some raids to face no resistance. As the Feud grinds on. the death match between the Orks and traitors has settled into a war of attrition. gas harvesting stations. his pleas have mostly been ignored as his Mistress has focused on spreading the war to all corners of Rutilus. They provided valuable intelligence about the true depth of the Ork’s power. unlike near Station Lambda. These small pockets of resistance have proven to be no major impediment to continued air operations from Severus. mercenaries. . However. but as the war continues to fall into a protracted war of attrition these supply restrictions could prove decisive. So far. His argument is that the sustained push to capture all of Rutilus is being hampered by a lack of supplies. it may splinter as each warlord attempts to gain their own advantages from the ongoing Feud of the Red Clouds. In the short run. As a result. and other key logistical targets. and others to be overwhelmed by Ork fightas on route to the target. this problem is negligible.
defense emplacements destroyed. This state of affairs leaves them ripe for air assault. However. and the Imperium is nothing if not resilient. However. Ork and Chaos forces are well positioned for such a campaign. and they have already made in roads into a number of warzones. Hell Talons attempt to re-supply an Aerial Platform Painted and built by: Easy E thrown air blockades around support platforms for Station Severus and Epsilon The Eldar have been secure in Station Lambda. However. in the case of the Orks. The Feud of the Red Clouds is still far from over. Can the renegades rest control of the planet from the loyalists? Will the xenos depose those who have ruled Rutilus for so long? Only you can help decide the outcome fo the Feud of the Red Clouds. their efforts have mostly left a lighter footprint. for the most part they have been an isolated foe. The forces of Chaos have pushed hard into the territory of Station Alpha and Epsilon. Their raids have extended into the battles swirling around Station Alpha as well. and to then springboard to the next. However. They have effectively. Commander Plegabo is a cunning logistician. many of the Aerial Platforms of Rutilus have been left in ruins. and a poor defense there could make the difference between victory and defeat. The Tau have also made some inroads into other warzones. slowly uncovering and dismantling the work of the former owners. Meanwhile. and storage facilities devastated. the Imperials of Taskforce 351 and Magos Deanarus are on the back foot. with no clear faction dominating the others. An effective offensive here.Inquisitorial Report: A4567/893/beta Reference: Feud of the Red Clouds Access Code: ********** Level: Magenta Conclusion With the latest stage of the Feud of the Red Clouds wrapping up. Dagger Squadron raids an Ork held Platform Painted by: CheesyRobman and Vebdal Slayer . as the Ork menace flies outward looking for a good scrap. The Orks have been a serious problem around Station Alpha. but they are in no position to start a serious offensive campaign without clawing back Station Alpha’s territory first. A trickle of reinforcement sand supplies are flowing in. this has left their own Station Epsilon potentially vulnerable to attack. but have also made their presence felt in Ro and Lambda. They have barely managed to keep the Orks and Traitors from directly attacking Station Alpha. They have also raided and looted in the regions of Ro and Severus. This type of platform hopping campaign will ultimately lead to the fall of the Great Stations.
