Antonius tried to clear his mind as his Drop Pod screamed through the atmosphere of Julius.  The G-force of his couch was almost intolerable, but he forced himself to not care.  He instead thought of the Orks and Chaos forces on Julius, and how best to cleanse them.

The litanies taught in Captain Valerien’s Tactica Astartes classes sprang to his mind.  Ramshackle Ork vehicles could be easily taken out with a krak missile blast, and bolters were more than enough to cleanse Orks.  Chaos Space Marines were a bit heartier, and required heavier weapons.  Remembering these lessons focused his thoughts on the battle to come, and he hardly noticed the crushing force of re-entry until his Drop Pod had landed.

Explosions rocked all around, and the incessant pop of small arms fire almost buzzed.  5th squad emerged from the Drop Pod, bolters blazing.  Antonius emptied his Bolter-Plasma Gun’s magazine into a crowd of stunted Xenos, and reloaded the bolter clip.  The sky was streaked with the gray of Drop Pod contrails, and the Azure Flames fell on the Orks like a rain of fire.
