I gave each player a detailed (and conflicting) background info about the little sector and why they were there at the moment. Every one was expecting a hunt the heretic or xeno scenario. (Classic Dark Heresy scenarios in other words).
About 5 minutes after the game started, their dromon was smashed by an emerging space hulk
The group managed to survive a few skirmishes with Orks and a mini-boss battle against an Eldar Wraith and a little time bubble puzzle. Then they met the Kommandos!
The group is moving paralell to the hull of a ship. the ground and other wall is rock. the passage is about 3 or 4 meters wide with celing lost in darkness.
The arbiter (Riot Shield & Combat Shotgun) is in the lead, then comes the Sororitas and the Naval Rating is bringing up the rear.
At this point the Sororitas Sister is carrying real heavy as she donned the "Relics" she was carrying (She is trying to get a suit of an Artificer PowerArmor and a Masterwork Inferno Pistol to her superiors) and she also got her hands on an Imperial Plasma Pistol. She makes a critical success on her Auspex/Perception (4) and detects the 6 Ork Kommandos that are rappeling down onto them. She goes gunslinger on them and fires both her plasma pistol and inferno pistol. After some good rolls (6 and 7) she manages to cook 3 of them and the forth one rolls around with plasma burns.
The remaining 2 drop onto the Arbites and Naval Rating. NR manages to blow his attacker away (4 barrelled sawed-off shotgun) while Arbiter gets a Maul to his head. Unfortunately He makes his dodge roll and avoids death
On turn 2 Kommando Nob joins the fun by dropping onto the Sororitas (Who to my disgust makes her str and blance checks and manages to throw the Nob off her ) . After about 4 more turns where my Ork kommandos act like friggin Ninjas out of a Naruto episode (Dodging point blank shotgun blasts, smoke/pepper/flash bombs, Martial Art strikes, ) and beat the crap out of my poor players, they depart back up into the darkness leaving some presents behind. Fortunately the group had enough armor not to die from frags and the kommandos didn't have any Kraks with them
It was extremely funny to watch them slaughter most of the encounter on the opening moment and get beaten stupid by the sole remaining Kommando. (Unfortunately Nob just stood there and acted like an attack magnet without doing any damage other than blayin who has the harder skull with Sororitas )
