My Lord ########, we've completed the interrogation of the survivors of Hive Rasgus. All 35 of them, sir, every single one a husband and father, most driven to irreparable madness from witnessing their families' slaughter. Pardon the excessive detail, Lord, but it matches the hive massacre we've been investigating for the past six months in Bolvantus, down to the number, gender and marital status of those left alive.
And again, retrieved pict-data from the Hive's internal circuit shows a single attacker. Lord, I remember well your reaction on Bolvantus, but we've put every capable servitor to work on this and every cross-hour and visual analysis results in the attack having been perpetrated by a single fiend. That it seems like a traitor Astartes in Tactical Dreadnought Armour does little to quell the astonishment, Lord.
The first attack was on the Hive-Governor's facilities, and with no relevant material damage to report, which explains the late aid-request to our fleet. From there, the traitor Astartes stalked various sections of the Hive across the following two months, always with the same emphasis on psychological warfare: taking hold of the bloc's audio circuit to broadcast a constant, bass laughter that chills the spine even with the data's bad state. From then, he...We have almost a million dead in two months, Lord - not counting the Bolvantus situation - and without the use of a single explosive or any weapon of greater power than a heavy flamer...
Shock and unrest are starting to take root on some soldiers, something I've done my best to put down, even resorting to exerting exemplary discipline upon Corporate Georgos.

Dammit, #####, we've fought alongside each other for years, you know I trust your judgement more than I do mine. I'm fully aware of how much you risk in requesting reinforcements from the Ordo, but we can't put this monster to the blade with just our men. I beg of you, listen to me, before we lose far more.

Ravagas Murciel, Night Lords Terminator, second of the series. I think it shows I've recently bought and liked the Vampire Counts Armybook.
Hope you like it.
