Grey Knights pursue White Hands

Having made contact with the mysterious White Hands and having driven them off once, the Grey Knights pursued them into the depths of the Hadron Expanse, almost as far as the Rifts of Hecate. Although the information was sparce, eventually the Ordo Malleus tracked their foe down to an uncharted system where at least one White Hands vessel appeared to be resupplying. Wishing to investigate close at hand, the Grey Knights engaged the rebel astartes on the ground rather than challenging them in space. Besides, the Grey Knights only had one vessel. How many the White Hands numbered the Imperium did not yet know.

Once again the White Hands denied the divinity of the Emperor, accusing the Grey Knights of religious fanaticism. Although the imperial space marines took this as a compliment, the heresy of the White Hands could not be denied, and once again the small force of rebels was driven off by the zealous Grey Knight assault. As the White Hands retreated further into the Rifts of Hecate, a small ship followed, bearing with it a representative from the Federacy and an emissary from the Tau empire.
