orbital strikes on the airfield

Grenada reconquest- Angels Wrath Raids- Iberia-  The Apocalypse Angels strike force swung into orbit over Iberia.  The guns on the cruisers and destroyers hammered the Stygian airfields on the world below as marines from the Apocalypse Angels chapter prepared to launch a strike at the world below.  In particular the orbital bombardment paid special attention to any air field capable of holding and launching a harbringer super heavy bomber.  The massive raid by the apocalypse Angels would be a precursor to the guards invasion and reconquest of the world.  Given the potential destruction a harbringer could bring to a imperial bridgehead on planet the apocalypse Angels made them a priority target.

Stygian Command- Iberia

Grenada Reconquest- Iberia, in the Grenada System.  Stygian Commanders on the outer planet of Iberia met quickly after the fall of the Serpent's Eye space station and the ambush of the relief flotilla.  As the outer planet of the Grenada System they would likely be the first to face a major Imperial Incursion given the system was blind with the loss of the space station.  It was agreed to put the unit's on alert and to begin digging in.

Ambush amongst the stars

Grenada Reconquest- Knowing the assault on the Serpent Eye space station would likely trigger a response force from the Stygian Empire to the Grenada system, the Imperial navy snuck a single cruiser through the space lanes to ambush the response force at the warp transition point.  A volley of torpedoes caught the infidel and idolater raiders off guard with a few being destroyed outright.  The Captain of the Imperial cruiser Thantos used the surprise to close with the small Stygian flotilla and deliver furious broadsides that destroyed a number of vessels and sent the Stygian flotilla into a rout and unable to render aid to the Grenada system.

Killing the daemonic conduit

Assault on Space Station Serpent Eye- Grenada reconquest- Apocalypse Angel Librarian Tiberius hunted through the decks until he confronted the psyche summoning the daemons onto the station.  After a brief but intense psychic battle Tiberius broke the Stygian psychers mind seconds before his sword took from the tainted fool his head.  With the psychic conduit thus destroyed the daemons vanished and the station fell in a matter of minutes.
