Ok so this is my first attempt at a Battle Report! Feedback Welcome.
In this game we fought using the objectives system from the GW
This is still my favorite way of playing 40k
each side places one objective in their Deployment are and one objective marker in no mans land.
We used City of death counters for the markers and rolled for scatter 2d6
Of the four objective markers only the one place in the SW
building stayed put!
The Chaos markers ended up next to the Ruins and behind the hill in the Chaos deployment zone
The imperial had one marker in their Building and one on top of the Hill on their left
We then rolled on the mission table to find out each armys objective.
I rolled Hold Out and my mission was to Hold Both Chaos Markers
Paul rolled Bridge head, his mission was to claim 1 Imperial marker and 1 Chaos marker.
We deployed our troops.
Nurgle My Army List is Here
spacewolves borrowed one chaos dread --- counts as a assaultcannon and CCW
and the battle started like this:
holding Chaos marker 1
SpaceWolf Battle Line ready to Fight for Chaos MArker 2
Turn 1 --- FIGHT!---
The Chaos Possessed Rolled on their Weapons table and got PowerWeapons.
Both Sides started out by walking forward towards Chaos Objective 2
the First fireFight was brief
Chaos tanks killed one grey hunter and attacked a Space wolf Dread blowing his assultcannon apart
Imperial armour fired back imobilising the Chaos Preditor. the first wave of speeder fire bounced harmlessly off the landraider...
Chaos lord hearing the speeder near decides to cower behind the building...
Everyone else prepares to battle it out for the central Objective
AntiTank Terminators Teleport behind the SPaceWolfs and destroy a dreadnought
the battle heats up as Chaos then take down a LandSpeeder...
SPace Wolfs not liking the idea of CHaos at the BAck Door turn around and attack the DSing Terminators... in two rounds of combat wipe them out
Dreadnaughts Wipe out 4 PM
Following this Success the First remaining LandSpeeder Crew doubles their efforts and Destroys the Landraider
The Lightning CLaw Terminators take cover outside the wreak... miles from their target!
LandSpeeder two fires at the Terminators but despite incredable accuarcy the Chaos Terminators cursed armour protects.
PReditors fire enmass at the Shaken CSM
PRED but do no damage.
Chaos tries to recover their losses but only manages to take a Dreadnoughs CCW
the LandSpeeders take out 3 of the LC
A lone REmaining PM
Champion readies his PowerFist and Charges A SW
the Chaos Prince throws caution to the Wind and Desides to join him Leaps across the building and throws itself in to Combat with the Dread killing it with a solid blow.
then realises his mistake , with no cover available (or troops to consolidate into) gets Blasted at by both SW
Preditors (no pics.. my bad... duh!)
The Daemon prince staggers back from the blows (with 2 wound remaining) Laughing at the Tanks... but He doesn't see the grey hunters take Aim and Fire, sending him back to the Warp. The LAndSpeaders wipe out the remaining LC
the PLague Marines on the hill Rapid Fire and Destroy a LAndSpeeder...
Having had his First DreadNaught Prize Stolen by his DP

Fight the Horrors killing 1 Possessed but dispite their lossess stand firm
The REst of the Near Buy SW

Knowing that they were doomed the Possessed fought with no fear Killing another 6 Bloodclaws
Before the SW
culled 4 of the semi daemons!
The battle all but over, All that was left was for the SW
to Clean up and CLaim thier Objectives
And the battle ended like this:
SpaceWolves Space MArines CLaimed 3 objectives markers AND a Major Victory!
Completeing Their Main Objectives
No objectives a crushing DEfeat! (I forgot to walk the PMS
back down their hill at the end of turn 6)
