'Bane, I would advise you to keep an especially keen eye fixed on the temple's top side,' Jace recommends. 'Whatever disturbance plagues this planet seems be strongest there.'

"Roger that Jace" says Bane and instructs his observers to keep an eye on the top of the temple. "These xeno bastards won't know what hit 'em" he murmurs with gleeful anticipation. He does not respond to Hassarian's idea about informing his rival about their fall back plan, since it would probably end badly for him.

Petrus has his troops scan for paths, debris if any and checks for possible outposts on the temple or firing positions.

@AG:

While you find scattered bits of wraithbone and other detritus you find no signs of out posts or such encampments. However you do find a number of good firing positions.

***

@Xath:

As per the agreement with Sun Lee, you hear her power armoured frame climb the side of the tank before coming to a rest atop it.

You wonders what it's like riding atop a Malcador. You have only ever ridden atop a Leman Rus with a number of comrades and the was pretty damn uncomfortable.

You hear a number of Jade Guard climb up next to where you last heard Sun Lee.


***

@Gankom:

Looking over your Jade Guard escort, you suspect that their Crapace armour incorporates some sort of stealth tech. You are just not sure how it works

***

@DS:

You sense nothing new as of yet

The troops split up into 3 2 man teams. 2  cover the firepoints while their other mates move up to closer positions. Petrus and the 5th move towards the main opening.

"So where do you hail from originally?" Desmond asks his escort, trying to be friendly while also getting a better look at his armor. He keeps a hand on his holstered pistol while they hike through the jungle though, and listens intently to his vox for any sign from the others.

"Damn bastards" mutters Bane under his breath, while semi-conciously fingering the strap on one of his holsters. "You'll try anything stupid, and I swear to Throne..." he adds under his breath, while at the same time keeping an eye on auspex and making sure that his men are prepared for anything, that could be coming their way.

@Gankom:

The Jade Guard doesn't answer

***

@AG:

You cover the entrance and prep to enter the tower.

***

@DS:

You sense that there are multiple beings atop the tower. At least five.

A chill sense of dread rushes down Jace's spine as his eyes snap open. 'There's something there,' he says, confused, slurred, his mind still partly reeling from the experience. Then he gets up and makes to leave the vehicle, shaking his head to clear his mind before speaking into the vox. 'It appears an entity has manifested upon the temple's roof,' he states loudly. 'This is something I must investigate. I would appreciate an armed escort,' he concludes as he emerges from the tank, hellpistol in hand, before striding towards the Eldar building.

Petrus starts for the entrance but stops to look back on an urge. He sees Jace determinly heading for the temple. He hand signal the squad to take cover and watch for movement at the firing points. He signals Jace that he will wait for him to catch up.

"Weapons at the ready boys." Desmond say's happily to the Jade Guard, drawing his own pistol as well. "Remember to focus on any aliens and not Hasarians men. Not with your Lady riding with them."

He'll keep an eye on the Jade Guard to make sure there's no funny business.

"We can lay a curtain of fire on top of the temple" suggests Bane with a light tone. "That way we'll give our troops and allies some much needed cover and they'll be able to advance towards the top in relative safety." He looks back at Hassarian with an intense look on his face. "I'd advise against sending a party to the top, without laying down a lot of covering fire. These are the Eldar that we're talking about. Getting toe to toe with them is a very bad idea, sir" finishes Bane with a slight rasp in his breath.

"All elements, this is Icarus Bane. We'll provide covering fire for our advancing troops... and our allies'. Gunners! On my mark, prepare to fire at the top of the temple!" Bane issues the orders, while observing the top of the temple through one of the Malcador's ocular sights. "I want everything we have, fired towards the top of this Throne-forsaken Xenos rubble!" he roars into the vox.

@DS & AG:

While Jace has little luck seeing anything in the dark entry way, Petrus however has more luck. The missionary finds a number of strange crystal, disk shaped objects embeded in the walls or floors on the entry way

***
@Gankom:

You notice that a number of the tanks are rarer models. One even appears to mount a plasma cannon! You can't remember the names of these tanks though

***

@Xath:

The guns of every man-served weapon are unleashed. It's mostly mortor and heavy bolter fire but it seems to be getting the job done before a number of House Troopers are literally shreded by return fire from the tower!

"Sounds like we've got contact." Desmond mutters, loud enough to be heard by the trooper. "Shouldn't you get in there and help your boss?"

Petrus sets up firing zones in the entrance way and covers Jace as he gets in. He takes a minute to study the crystal pieces imbedded in the architecture. Somehow they seem to have a power about them. They might have some control over the elder if they had them.

Jace, oblivious to the crystal disks, will continue onward, stopping only momentarily when the temple he's in is bombarded by his allies. While the weapons of their opponents are far more stealthy, Jace deduces that his comrades are experiencing return fire when the screams of House troopers reach him over the vox. With a prayer to the fallen on his lips, Jace readies his hellpistol and advances, more cautiously now that he is in the belly of the beast, but nonetheless steadily making his way towards the roof.

"Locate those bloody snipers, blanket fire the top-most levels of the tower!" roars Bane into his vox. "Find cover and return fire. Marksmen - take aim and cover. Do we have air support?!" he frantically communicates and gives orders over multiple channels. Finally he turns towards Hassarian. "My Lord, we should call in fire support from orbit. Perhaps Lady Lee's ship could do the same. With that much counter fire coming down from that building, we won't be able to advance efficiently!"

@Gankom & Xath:

The amount of  the Eldar's return fire is nearly drowned out by the fire support from The Jade Guard. The armour's big guns start pounding the top of the tower!
