Hi!
I will publish new battle report very soon. To heat up the atmosphere I will paste story behind the battle here. This is part 2 of ongoing campaign, so if you are interested pleas visit battle-reports.org . I hope you will enjoy it!


Story
The Warp around Xiphos was turbulent. An aether storm started without any warning and the Grey Knights' destroyer could only try to survive. Wave after wave hit the vessel but the Geller field held.

Inside Grand Master Virinac sat in silence on the command throne. Around him bridge crew were trying to regain control and assess damage. Virinac lifted his gaze when Chief Astropath Agerus walked through the bridge gate assisted by four bodyguards. Agerus was a venerable and wrinkled man. His eyes were milky white and blind. Years of performing his holy duty were taking a heavy toll on his physical form and the last few hours were adding even more.
— Reverend Agerus. What brings you here?
— My Lord. We have intercepted a communication. I thought it was urgent that you should be informed about it. And it needed to be to yours ears only.
Virinac stood from the throne and walked toward the astropath.
— Come, Agerus.
They walked into a small chamber situated next to the bridge. The interior was ascetic - only one table and four chairs. When the doors closed Virinac said:
— You received this communication through this storm? How this is possible.
— Lord... This storm is not a normal warp-storm. This is a response to this message.
— What?
— Excuse me Lord. I am tired. I will try to explain. Half of my choir died when this storm hit us. The message was simple - it was only one word. "Awaken".
— Who sent it?
— We are not sure, but all of us saw a sword. A serpent hidden inside a sword.
Virinac's eyes widened.
— Agerus, do you want to tell me that Primarch Slayer is to be found?
— Lord, I believe it is. The storm is the answer to this message repeated over and over.
— Have you been able to decrypt the answer?
— Yes. "I am coming". That is all Grand Master. I can still hear this voice in my head. I think I will never be able to forget it. As well as my brothers and sisters in the choir. Virinac knew what this meant.
— I am sorry my old friend. Remember that only in death our duty ends. Till then please be strong and try to help us find it.
— Of course my Lord. I will do what I can.
— Do you know where we have to travel?
— Yes. Do you wish me to transmit the new heading to the Navigator?
— Do so without any delay. Now leave. We must prepare.
The astropath bowed his head and walked towards his sanctuary.
— Agerus. One more thing.
The old man stopped.
— Thank you for your service.
— I live to serve my Lord.

Jarnax was a desert wasteland. The planet was surrounded by a belt of rocks and space ships remnants of many origins. Xiphos navigated through and anchored over one of the biggest cities on the planet. Or to be more precise - leftovers of it.

Grey Knights' reconnaissance squad made planetfall without any delay. Time was short and the Grey Knights couldn't afford to waste a second. Their Thunderhawk flew through radioactive layers of planet atmosphere and landed outside of the city marked by Agerus.

— All units, this is Crainor. Form blade pattern. Secure position and begin sweep. The Justicar of Interceptors ordered and the Grey Knights obeyed. The Formation of grey clad warriors moved as one body.
— Crainor to Xiphos. Lord, do you receive me? Our auspexes are useless due to radiation level.
— Remain vigilant and move forward. Came the reply through vox from Virinac.
The Grey Knights walked into the city ruins. Some buildings had been damaged for a very long time, but some carried fresh marks.
— Grand Master, we detected signals from multiple vessels in asteroid belt. They are waking up their reactors. your orders? Shipmaster Dorian said.
— Can you confirm their identities?
— Not yet Master. The radiation interference is too strong.
— Lord, smoke on the horizon - The Justicar reported via vox.
— Prepare to engage. Crainor looked at the direction from which the enemy were coming.
The smoke clouds were oil-black. There was more than one vehicle and they were closing fast. The earth started to vibrate and projectiles flew in all directions from the vehicle column.
— Orks.
Servos in Grand Master terminator armour whizzed when Virinac speeded toward bridge gates.
— Lord Virinac we have recognized the enemy vessels. We are being attacked by orks. Your orders?
— Wait until my strike squad will makes a teleport assault. Then break from orbit and engage. Depart if needed.
— But Lord, we won't be able to support you...
— We can handle ourselves. We have Emperors with us. Good hunting Xiphos.
Virinac switched the vox to open channel.
— Knights, this situation is not optimal but we have to adapt. Have faith in Our Lord Emperor and in your brothers. We will succeed. ENGAGE!

Happy to hear that!

Winning with orks should be easier in 8th edition.
I really hope that next battle report will be with new edition.

is that battle report thing just for your own battles? how do you go about putting these together? I am super new to this stuff but would love to add this level of fluff to this, and love writing. do you just kinda come up with everything or use a source?

Orks. winning? What a time to be alive
Love the visuals btw, really makes the fluff pop. I love it when players go the extra mile to fluff up their games.

Well in some future I would like to add content from other gamers - but it must fulfill quality requirements.
