Covenant grind forward on Zadoc
By the end of 10.013M42 the imperial forces on Zadoc were beginning to show some resolve. Although they did retreat further the chaos assault slowed, and their losses steadily increased. The Arch Cleric now turned to his old allies, the Covenant, who were first noted on Zadoc on 2910.013M42, as daemonic forces and cultists bearing the mark of the Covenant were identified taking part in the assault on Gredau. On the imperial side the local PDF and imperial guard units began to work well together, supported by marine detachments and forces of the adeptus mechanicus in a more unified force. It seemed General Brooke was finally halting the unstoppable chaos advance, and soon his reinforcements would arrive, or so he was told.
