The Tau Commanders Novastorm and Brightsword, sought to add Drevaris to their Empire, but strike forces from the Silver Skulls and Sons of Guilliman Chapters, soon came to the Industrial World's aid. Led by their Chapter Masters, Ansellus and Argentius, the Space Marines then fought a vicious battle with the Tau, which devastated both forces. The Tau's superior numbers aided them greatly though and as the battle neared its end, Ansellus had only two other Marines to command, while Argentius led a force of five. Luck was with the Marines however, as the Tau Commanders gave the order to retreat, after taking stock of the losses they had suffered so far in the battle. Against such determined foes, as the Space Marines, the Commanders determined that regrouping and then launching a new attack later, would be a much better use of their Fire Warriors' lives.[1]
