Priority Grade: Alpha-Absolutum.

Lord Inquisitor our mission to explore this world has taken a turn for the worse.
Haven landed (one week ago (STT ) we first went about setting up abase from which to carry out 
our research of this planet's only landmass, as you know from Inquisitor Price's reports  we detected 
no forms of live from your sweeps from orbit.

With a secure base-camp to operate from we set out on your 3rd day heading in a north-west direction, 
it was not until nearing the end of the 2sd day that we started to pick up the lifeforms read-outs up ahead 
from the servo-skulls.

Upon hearing this news Inquisitor Price, Cannoness Gabrielle, & myself had a meeting to workout a plan of 
action, knowing that the read outs seemed to becoming from two locations we decide two send out rhino 
with a sisters battle squad in each to intercept each life-from.

While at the same time the Inquisitor would join with the cannoness & a small dominion squad would take a 
wide route around to come in from the flank to support the battle sisters, with a bigger dominion squad doing 
the same on the other flank.
These would also be reinforced by a small squad of storm-troopers who would drop in behind the lifeforms out of arvus ligther the only flying vehicle we had which was used for recon operation's.
A small platoon of IG' the rest of of the sororitas forces under my command would stay put until called upon.

As radio silences was to be maintained the first we knew of battle been commenced was a bright flash  to our left quickly followed by one to our right, these where from (as we where later informed) the two rhino's.
Thank the Emperor none   of the battle sisters where killed or injured in the explosion & where able to carry on 
on foot.

On the left flank just as they engaged with what we where informed over the vox where necrons, the battle squad were joined  by the dominion squad containing the Inquisitor,

While on the right hand flank the squad of storm-troopers dropped in behind two necron triacher  stalkers, just as the sister squad came within melta range.

The dominion squad that where to join up with these forces was unable to as the rhino they where travelling in threw a track going through difficult terrain. 

By this time dawn had broken so that we could now lend support to your advanced forces with the two stalkers being destroyed. while on the left flank both squads opened up on the necron forces backed up by some fire from the exorcist launchers but to little effect.

It was at this point that we realised we being lead into a trap as the necrons brought the battle to us from the skies.

As night scythe's arrived at super sonic speed beaming down  deathmask necrons along side the battle sister squads so they could fire up on them with some kind of alien technology thet rendered their power armour useless.

The night scythe's divided their fire-power between the storm troopers & the exorcist's, killing the storm troopers & destroying one of the exorcist.

At the same time the necron lord & his royalcourt returned fire on the dominion squad containing Inquisitor Price & the Cannoness killing four of the squad sister's & badly wounding the other a long with the Inquisitor & the Cannoness.

With our advanced force's wiped out we ready yourself's for the full onslaught of the necrons, it was at this point we saw it something that seemed to flicker in & out of reality as it move to assault one of the deathmask units.

On the other flank a small squad of ratlings that had infiltrated into a forward position fired on the other deathmask unit killing one & keeping the rest pined down.

The night scythe's made another fly over killing the ratling squad & costing some miner damage to another exorcist, & then it was over with our scanners picking up no reading's.

As we made our way slowly forward to retrieve our dead & wounded there was not a trace of any necrons or the thing that had assaulted them, there was to be some relief as thank's to the Holy Emperor we found Inquisitor Price & Cannoness Gabrielle not dead but gravely wounded & both are now back on board the Divine Light recovering.
We have pushed on in the north western diction we had set out on & have now come to the edge of what would appear to have once being some kind of settlement with a massive structure at the opposite end.
I've given orders to set up camp here & await your further orders as to how to proceed.
