Battle Report: The HellGate

the eighth scenario of my new rogue trader campaign I played two weeks ago.

Background
borderline world of Issus (called "Somewhere" by the settlers).

The Interrogation of the traitor was difficult but profitable.
Now the Inquisitor knew about the origin of the evil hidden on Issus.
The leadership of the Cult was hidding in the underground of a small imperial palace, under the protection of imperial guards under the control of the alien infestation.
The Inquisitor should act faster: the head of the Cult should be cut, or soon all the planet could be doomed.
He requested the assistance of the Adeptus Arbites, they were still loyal servants of the Emperor and they could be useful in this battle.
Arago: "This is our only chance to eradicate the evil cancer before it could spread... if we fail, we have only another choice: Exterminatus... We will NOT fail."

Overview of the board & deployment of leagues:

Special: the winner of the major plot point will have initiative in the next and last scenario.

Major plot point: The gate of the Imperial Palace
