Gathering on Granera before invading Ryerson in August 3038 – as part of the FWL’s campaign to re-conqueror the rogue Andurien province - the Second and Fourth Marik Militias expected to face the elite (but badly mauled) First Defenders of Andurien as well as planetary militias. Fortunately for them, Dame Catherine Humphreys realized the need to husband her forces for the final battle on Andurien, and she withdrew the defenders once the fate of Conquista and Sadurni was clear.
They still had to overcome the militia defenders, but this was a task they achieved quickly and efficiently, securing the world in just over four days — the fastest victory of the campaign. The speed and maneuverability of the Fourth Militia was central to the victory, allowing the loyalists to scout enemy positions. The Second would then maneuver into position for a conventional assault, pinning the militia in place while the Fourth struck the flanks and rear. Most of the militia units disintegrated when faced with such tactics, and 100 hours after the FWLM troops began operations the planetary authorities surrendered to the Captain-General.
