Default Amphelion IV - what's the story?

Well, The topic is as it is.

I heard from some of my frinds that the Imperium trapped some of the tyranids and make it into some kind of zoo or something, others tell me that it is a tyranid invasion of some kind, and some even tell me that on Amphelion IV imperial have diescovered a way to kll tyranids using a top secret project.

I am pretty much lost, as I do not hav the Imperial armour book in question. :P

I don't think the imperium would make it a zoo with all te "suffer not the xenos to live" type stuff. Unless they do reseach on them.

I have the book but I don't want to spoil too much;

It's about the Anphelion IV Research facility from the Ordo Xenos. Some Tyranids are hold on the Planet to do some research on them. You can view it like a zoo if you want. But then communications went dead and Inquisitor Lok with a couple of IG regiments and the Red Scorpions start investigating the place and they soon find out that the Tyranids evolved a way around their containment area and grew very big in a small timeframe. Then it becomes a struggle for life and death for the IG and Lok. The Red Scorpions have a more secret mission that I won't tell.

It's a great book with a lot of nice info and pictures about the Tyranids. It's smaller than the other IA books but still very nice. It features battles on a smaller size then IA 3; squad to squad battle instead of whole armies.

If you want to know more just ask, I will happily provide it.

So it is basically a 40k Jurassic park right?

And I would like to know more.

Everything that you can tell without getting in trouble for it. I eat this stuff up like I do air.

I can't really explain what the real mission of the Red Scorpions is because that will spoil the plot.
But they are to recover some data that is going to be used for something...

Inquisitor Lok is not so pleased that they don't follow his orders. The Red Scorpions work for a higher power.

When the Red Scorpions mission is complete, Exterminatus is done on the planet as expected.

Anphelion started out with just some small Tyranid creatures but they soon evolve into things much bigger...
So they needed to be stopped.

If a summary would not break copyright than Im sure many here would like to read it. The IA books are far too expencive for many players but the fluff in them would be nice to know.
