The Gereon 12, or simply the Gereon Mission Team, were the kill team led by Gaunt onto Gereon to locate and assassinate Lord-General Noches Sturm while he was being held captive by the forces of Chaos. All 12 survived, although one has since died and one is unaccounted for.
The Team Edit
Following his acceptance of the mission from Lord-General Van Voytz, Gaunt had to pick a twelve man team to complete it. He selected each member in regards to their specialties, skills and reliability, although he knew that it was likely that they would never be extracted.

Acquired Members Edit
During their time on Gereon, the original team made contact with the Gereon underground, which resulted in them taking in two contacts by proxy, and also during their time in the Untill built a truce with the native partisans, the Nihtgane, resulting in Gaunt receiving one of the Nightwalkers as a token of gratitude. These three became part of the team that moved after Sturm. A further four Gereon underground troops accompanied the group in it's early stages.

Insertion & Initial Contact Edit
The mission team were sneaked onto planetside via grav-chutes from a low flying lander into marsh land area to the south of Shedowtonland. After successful disembarkation, they proceeded to a set of farm buildings outside Ineuron town, where they awaited face to face contact with representatives of the Ineuron cell. After meeting with a team under Landerson, they fled in the face of an armed patrol, and escaped into the woodlands after wiping the excibutors out.
After taking up new cover in silo pits closer to the town limits, Gaunt and Mkoll accompanied Landerson to make contact. They sneaked into the town via vitaller wagons, but were exposed when their initial target was revealed to be compromised. After a series of firefights and a spell in hiding, they emerged in safety and found a cell under Cirk who had survived the night. Cirk joined the trio as they returned to the team with the intention of setting off towards Lecticia.
The immobilised team, under Rawne's command, were suprised by a military patrol, but quickly wiped them out with no casusalties and no audio warning. Gaunt and his group hooked up them, and they procured one of the Chaos vehicles for transport.
Locating & Reaching Target Edit
Eliminating Target Edit
After a heavy fire-fight with the sons of sek and pitched battles between the resistance fighters and defenders, the twelve reached their target. Noches Sturm, disgraced leader of the Volpone, had already seen Ibram Gaunt and this served as the cataclsym destroying his mental lock and making him fully understand his former personaility. (I'll be back to finish in a little while first&last don't worry.)
