Chris McDonnell (Imperial) vs Andrew Skinner (Chaos)
In The Foot hills of Straxis VII There is an small outpost on that for some reason was home to a small detachment of the 6th Coy of the First Legion. This Outpost home to multiple Air defence establishments, and being overwatched by no other than Ezikial himself. Other imperial Forces kept their distance.
Forces of Choas led by a new hero Cylus The Deceiver , saw this as an anomaly. He gathered his forces and conducted a swift raid onto this outpost to determine the strong Dark Angels intent.

WoM Imperial Bunker armed with Iccurus auto cannon, WoM Defence line, WoM Defence Emplacement, WoM Firestorm Redoubt armed with 2 Iccurus Quad Lascannons, and a single lascannon, and 2 WoM Vengence Batteries with Battle cannons.
The Chaos Forces were scattered but organized. In their lists included 3 Chaos Contemptors loaded out with Butcher Cannons and Powerfists with marks of Nurgle.
2 squads of 20 Cultists armed with auto guns and closecombat weapons and a mark of Khorne.
1 Hero Sorcerer Cylus The Deceiver
2 squads of 5 Havocs armed with Autocannons
Set up was Dawn of War
Eternal War Mission Crusade (4 objectives)
Each side put the objectives in their Deployment zone.
Imperial deployed first
Chaos Did not seize
Night Fight was in affect for first turn.
The Dark Angels Gun line lit up. But Chaos forces took great care to remain in cover. After the first turn of shoot only a hand full of cultist died and 3 havocs.
Chaos Advanced forward. Sorcerers walking behind Rhino’s Contemptors walking the center of the table. Contemptors popped the Dark Angels Razor back and scored First Blood.
As the Chaos Forces advanced so did the Dark Angels. In a rare sight their Empty Rhino rammed the chaos Rhino in an attempt to slow it down. But In the end the DA Rhino lost a hull point. Chaos Rhino’s are thicker than they look. The gun line destroyed the remaining Havocs from 1 squad and destroyed a Rhino which was protecting Cylus The Deceiver.
Chaos Forces continued with their assault. Multiple tactical space marines met their end at the rate of fire that the Butcher cannons output. No squads were destroyed but heavy castualties.
The Dark Talon enters, It flies over the outpost and flanks the advancement of Dreadnoughts and fires its Rift Cannon on the forward Comtemptor Dreadnought. The blast forms a singularity and the Vortex sucks the Dreadnought into… well.. no one knows where it went. The Vortex stays on the table and helps in slowing down the Chaos advance.
The Devastators in the Firestorm Redoubt armed with 4 lascannons takes out the rhino advancing up the side. The Sorceror following it hides for cover Not wanting to engage the onslaught of Lascannons. On the other side, 2 Devastators inside the Imperial Bunker vaporize eachother with hot Plamsma as their Cannons overload. The remaining Cannons continue to fire on the advancing Dreadnoughts.
Cylus the Deceiver unleashes the Warp onto the Dark Talon. Hitting it with both the Haywire and the Curse Chaos phycic Powers. The Dark Talon scatters and crashes in open terrain. (160pts for The Deciever) . The first wave of Cultists engage the 8th sqd of Tactical marines from the 6th Coy. Ezikial also charges in. The combat is forced to go another round.
The Heldrake flies onto the table and the Firestorm Dedoubt along with the imperial bunker open up to intercept it. But due to all the activity on the ground the Skyfiring weapons could not peirce the Warpforge armour of the Heldrake to take it down, and only scored a single glancing hit.
The Dark shroud which has been hiding behind the imperial bunker hiding the Snipers on the Battlements decides to move to the Objective just outside the Chaos Deployement zone. It move flat out but comes up short by 3”. The Contemptor Dreadnought #2 advances on the Imperial Bunker. Firing a slew of bullets from its butcher cannon it got 1 Pen hit. A lucky round pierces the Fuel tanks inside the Bunker and cause it for a Total Colapse. All but 1 of the Space marines die.
Cylus the Deceiver charges into combat against Ezikial. But thanks to the onslaught of Lascannon fire from the previous turns was Knocked down by Ezikial in a Challenge. The remaining Cultists are killed off. All looks well for the defence of the Outpost. But it is short lived.
For the last 4 Player turns the Vortex has been sitting still on the same spot. At the top of turn 5 it moves towards the Chaos Deployment zone. It will remain on the table for the remainder of the game but will not cause any damage.
The Contemptor dreadnought charges Ezikial and the remainder of the 8th. They do not last long. The might of this old war machine rips apart all that stood in its way. Ezikial is nocked down and unable to continue. The Darkshroud takes the objective and the contemptor holds one of the ones in the imperial zone. Victory looks to be insight. As a last ditch effort Sgt McLovin brings his squad around and kills the sorcerer advancing on the other objective Scoring (140 points)
And the end of Turn 5 we rolled. And the game aint over yet.
The Remaining Cultits who have been hiding for the past 5 turns runs out to secure the last objective in the Chaos Deployment zone. The Lascannon Devestators run out of the firestorm redoubt and snap shoot the contemptor. They hit once but does not destroy. The Contemptor advances on their position but fails to get into combat.
We rolled for turn 7 and the game ends
At the end of the game We each scored 2 Objectives , but it was the seconday objectives that decided the game.
Primary - 2 Objectives – 3VP each = 6VP
Secondary – Slay the warlord, First Blood, Linebreaker = 3

Cylus the Deciever received 160 / 20 = 8XP
Primary – 2 Objectives – 3VP each = 6VP
