Varangian Imperial Guard vs. Green Devil Kommando Orks
Aboard the Icarus Sun (Personal Transport of the Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Felix Nemeia).
Tactical meeting between Capt Alex Reismann and Inquisitor Lord Felix Nemeia
'Alex it's good to see you still alive after all these years. Wasn't it the Garulous Campaign, last time we met?' said Nemeia.
'Yes Lord, at least most of me is still in one piece and I believe, if I remember correctly, I saved your life more than once during that campaign.'
'You most certainly did Alex and I'm thankful to the Emperor that you were there. Unfortunately, we don't have time to talk about old times. I've tracked a Kill Kroozer carrying a small contingent of Orks into this system. They disappeared but I believe we've found where they are hiding on Varangia in the Jungles East of your position. My intelligence suggests they have inadvertantly trapped themselves on a small jungle island. I want you to seal them in with your forces, until a larger force can be brought to bear and wipe them out. I'm not having ork infestation on such a valuable world. Solomon here will provide you with the data slate.' he said, indicating his lexmechanic.
'Thankyou Lord, the Emperor Protects,' replied Reismann.
'Indeed he does' said Nemeia.
First Eldar, now Orks, what next Daemons? thought Reismann. I wonder why Nemeia is using us grunts to clear out the orks, when he has his own pet Deathwatch at his command? The Inquisitor had never been one to worry about sacrificing the faithful to pursue his causes and this worried the veteran.Battle Report

The battleline of the Imperial Guard deployed to prevent the Orks escape across the only bridge leading from this region, mining the area around the bridge to ensure swift death to any Greenskin foolish enough to attempt escape.
The Greenskin weirdboy stood in a haze of Waaagh! during turn 1, before releasing it in the second turn - only to blast himself out of action!
Aldo the Ogryn was keen to get to grips with the little green squishy bags his mates called Orkses and advanced rapidly, only to meet a very viscious tiny grot
, who held him up for two turns! After which the ogryn smashed him into next week
The twin snipers of the imperial guardsmen, set up strategically by Captain Reismann, put the Ork Boss out of action
The ork kommando and sneaky boss, try something kunnin'
Sneakin' up on the Imperial Guard
An overview of the battle in mid progress
Having taken out the sniper (lasgun) guarding the left flank (da umie wot ad dun for da boss!) these two orks made it to the exit zone, avoiding the mines placed by the Varangians, while the rest of the IG were engaged to the front. Result: Ork Victory! due to escaping to the safety zone (but only just!)
Someone would have to explain the Ork escape from the trap to Inquisitor Nemeia and Reismann knew it would have to be him. The captain got a worrying feeling that there was something sneaky (almost human) about these Orks....
