Assault on Greentoof Ford
|Colonel 'Blitzkrieg' Caine looks on at Greentoof Ford, as the Ork caravan bears down on the Coriscan position.|
"We hold here men! Do not give the greenskins a single inch! This is where we fight! Onward to glory, to victory!" - Colonel Caine, prior to leading the charge into the river crossing that would be known thereafter as 'Greentoof Ford.'
When Big Mek Greentoof's rok landed on the planet of Kauro it ignited a Waaagh that would threaten to engulf the entire planet. That is, until the Corsican 523rd arrived. Greentoof Ford, named after the defeated big mek, was a key crossing point of the Siene River. It had been a place of conflict between the local planetary defense forces and the feral ork tribes for centuries.
Colonel Caine chose this shallow crossing as the place where he would break the back of Waaagh Greentoof. He drew his battle lines here, and no ork, mek or otherwise, would make it alive across the Siene River.
