Considering: Short summary of the Sabotage mission against pipeline junction 37-b preformed by "Sigma 19" squad from the Preator Guard.
Initial recon: image 2-b/6
This picture shows pipeline junction 37-b, as of that moment in control of hostile Kroot forces. As with all these photo's, low light conditions prohibit proper identification at this time, unfortunately.
Start of action: Image 3z-23x
Sigma 19 approached the junction stealthily as not to alarm the Kroot forces to their presence. Structures where used to ascertain advantageous firing positions.
Start of action: Image 4y-12x
Additional ground forces with demolition charges move in, using the cover the buildings provided.
Mid action: image 7b-6 and 8-5c
Having reached elevated positions the squad open fire on the enemy. Reports indicated the opposing squad leader (*INSERT: Kroot Shaper - see file 43700.9978) Was severely wounded by Bolter fire. Additional casualties also reported, but not confirmed.
Mid action: Image 9-x and 11-z
Ground forces move in. The Kroot retaliate. No friendly casualties reported.
End of action: image 13-x3
Pipeline junction is sufficiently damaged by, mainly, heavy stubber fire. Imperial forces disengage before taking casualties. Kroot casualties estimated light. Objective completed. Note: one of the Preator Lieutenants has fallen seriously ill after swallowing some contaminated water. He is currently off the duty roster.
It seems we finally have a picture for our Kroot: Phantax file (file : 299948198x-23). To the top of its tail it is almost as tall as a Sentinel Walker. Physical capabilities are unknown at this point as the conflict was over before it could engage our forces.
