We placed them:
Objective1: - Top left corner of the big central building, infront of the doors

Dave won the roll for first turn and deployment and Spread out across his deployment, on the top table edge.
I castled up in a central position at the bottom

(sorry no deployment photo...)

Space marines rolled forward in their RZBs firing everything at the Vindicators
Spacemarine shooting doesn't do much, Multiple penatrations scored shaken and stuns results on the vindicators... which the possessed vindicators ignored!

Plague marines also moved forward in their Rhinos.
Plague marine fire proved equally bad; a weapon destroyed on the vanguards lascannon RZB and one of the tactical Hbolter RZBs was stunned

end of turn 1 ------ Objectives --- CSM - 0 --- Imperial - 1 -----

SM move forward again three RZBs pop Smoke
Devestators immobilise a vindicator

Tacticals disembark next to church
CMD squad disembark next to objective 1

PLagueMarines move out again! but the shooting phase disappoints again!

Squad disembarked from their rhino (before it moved) and assault RZB but fail to hit.

end of turn 2 ------ Objectives --- CSM - 1 --- Imperial - 0 -----

Space marines in the Shooting phase explode the CSM rhino by the church...
with no other real damage!... (Dave changes his dice!... no joke!!)

Vanguard vets with Chaplin assault into Plague marines.. they butcher 5 PM dead ( damn... the new dice work!)

Daemon Prince creeps out of the shadows of the manufactorium (...he DeepStriked)
Terminators teleport onto the battle field

Plague marines assault the SM tacticals at the Church...

Spacemarines hit first killing 2 PM. PM kill 1 SM in return!

Chaplin and The Vanguard Vets fail to kill any PM in the combat by the manufactorium.
Plaguemarines also fail to wound...

end of turn 3 ------ Objectives --- CSM - 0 --- Imperial - 0 -----

Space MArines RZBs and devestators Kill 3 Nurgle Terminators
another RzB takes out the last CSM Rhino, the PM disembark next to the flaming wreak.
Vanguard kill the remaining 2 PM by objective3

Daemon Prince Assaults the Vanguard and Chaplin killing all five Vets!

Chaplin smacks DP in the face!

Plague marines finnish off the squad by the church and consoldate onto objective4

Chaos Nurgle Terminators assault into the Ultra Marine Command Squad...

UM CMD hit first killing 2 terminators and then the CSM Terminators kill 2 members of the CMD squad.
the company standard gives the draw to the imperials (+1 wound in combat resolution), but the Chaos terminators pass their Moral check...

end of turn 4 ------ Objectives --- CSM - 0 --- Imperial - 0 -----

RZB stuns the immobilized vindicator. devestators ranged fire kill one plague marine at the central building
Tacticals get out of their RZB. Both squad and transport fire at the PM at the Church killing 2 PlagueMarines

only the Ultra MArine Captin and 2 Chaos terminators are left after combat at objective1

Space Marine tacticals take the objective...

But are hit by a vindicator blast which kills 3! and fall back 7" losing the objective

Plague marines kill the UltraMArine Captin and claim Objective1

DaemonPRince assaults the 2nd Tactical Squad near the Church, and kills 5!

the last man decides to fall back but is caught! and fails his fearless/no retreat save...
Killer DaemonPrince consolodates toward the church

Plague marines attack the RZB with rapid fire Plasma but fail to penetrate...

end of turn 5 ------ Objectives --- CSM - 1 --- Imperial - 0 -----

We roll for another turn... and get a 6!

---Turn 6--
Tacticals regroup 3" and Run 5" back into the ruins and reclaim the Objective

RZBs move to contest the objective by the Church.
DP assaults one RZB but fails to penetrate & Plague marines Rapid fire with plasma again but fail to penetrate...

RZB moves to contest objective 1 but can't quite reach 3 1/4 " away!

(we measured to the hull not the dozerblade)

The vindicator hits the Ultra marines in the ruin, causeing2 wounds.
The Ultra Marines go to ground for a 3+ cover save.
but fail one. then they Fail their moral check and fall back again!

end of turn 6 ------ Objectives --- CSM - 1 --- Imperial - 0 -----

we roll for another turn.... 1. that's it!
Victory goes to My Plague Marines... which makes up for the defeat I suffered in the last game

So what did ya'll think?

Another fine report, Panic, and as usual your 'notebook' commentary and mix of pics ( love the overheads ) make for an easy, but informative, read.

Quick question if I may, how's the board holding up ? You've put a fair ammount of traffic across it in the last week or so, any signs of wear & tear yet ?

thanx for the comments guys
It was a close game with actually holding onto objectives proving real hard!
Lots of fun!

WE were both surprised by some of the low dice rolls... and the survivablity of his RaZorBacks!

@ Reaper6: Yeah I've played a bunch of games recently on the board. It gets packed up after every game. I've even taken it on a trip, a 10min walk to Nicks house.
I see loose flock in the carry bag.. not too much, The only wear and tear that is remotely visable is a few of the edges where the board is picked up turned/moved when setting up... not really noticable. I'd say it's 99% intact!

I as well loved the report. I always look forward to these from you.

I have a question as to how the pics were taken and how you document the game itself. Your overheads are great and I would like to know how you acheaved this. Were you using 2 cameras? I like your set up and would like to, for lack of a better word, copy your method. I am curious about the logistics of how you did it. So that I can make worthy battle reports of this quality. Do you take small notes or stop after each turn? Screw it, I will come over, play me and I will see for my self.

Any advise would be welcome.

BatReps... I'm not a expert yet, what I've learned so far is just from the practice I've got by doing them.
It really just comes down to taking notes and photos...

Movement: I don't record movement much as that's usually assumed plus shown in pictures and can be worked out. although I make note if it means a objective is claimed.
Shooting: who fired at who and how many killed/damaged.
Combats: I usually generalise, SpaceMarines assulted = 1sm - 3ork dead .... although for interesting combats like daemonettes charging I'll write down. attack/hits/wounds/rends/kills...
basically write down everything interesting that happens.

I use the one compact camera for all my dakka pictures. I did a bit of internet research and got the geeks advice on what is the best affordable compact on the market for general purpose macro photos ... they said a Ricoh caplio Gx100, I know I never heard of the company either! but it's nifty. but a bit prone to camera shake...

I take photos of any cool combats or game changing shots!? usually I take 10 photos per turn and delete down to 3-5 for the batrep.

For the Maps,
we clear the table of dice/tapesmeasures/codex and rule books!!!
I basically zoom all the way back wide. stand on a stool lean over the table with the camera flat against the ceiling (thus square to the board)
centralised above the table and snap.
in the photo Table is flat but normally rotated a few degrees plus unwanted surroundings.
This I then straighten/distort to a 3:2 frame (the same aspect as 6' x 4') in photoshop.

I hope this helps?
I think I'll do a write up for the article system. and include some tutorial guide photos, of the photoshop stages ect...

Yeah, very good report! this game almost a draw if not a caused Vindicator push those Marines out of the objective.

that make me disappointed for every time i see the Emperor's finest losing to the traitors. however, it is okay. it just to have fun for us, but not in the way of fluff.
