The newly-formed kill team hardly had time to stow their gear upon arrival at the Watch Station when the communique arrived. Elements of the tyranid hive fleet’s vanguard had forced the techpriest’s ship to make an emergency landing on the Imperial planet of Tantalus. Techpriest Vyakai had been attempting to evacuate the planet with his retinue at the time. Magos Vyakai was able to send a single transmission before being forced to go to ground in order to hide from Tyranid scout creatures. He had a datacore that contained vital information regarding the encroaching hive fleet.
Primary Objective: Retrieve datacore.
Secondary Objective: Retrieve Techpriest Vyakai (alive preferable to dead)
Tertiary Objective: Targets of opportunity.
