Default Who won soulstorm?

We know the Blood Ravens won Dark Crusade as Thule survived and they have some wargear that mentions it in DOW2. However we know that the Blood Ravens were defeated in Soulstorm.

That begs the question of who won? Gorgutz probably lost as otherwise he'd have a Waaaaaagh! all set up for his reappearence which isn't noramlly how he does it. The eldar and imperial guard endings both end with the third planet abbandoned but the others re-colonised by the imperium.Finally I found the most eventful to be the chaos ending as they prepare for a bigger war, perhaps setting the scene for a re-appearence. But is there any way we can tell who won?

Dawn of War 2 hints that Guard won but it is unsure. We do know the blood ravens lost due to Dawn of War 2.

Imperial Guard, evidently. Bit odd, seeing as they'd lost half their meager forces before most of the others even showed up, but meh. Seems the Kauruvan Conservators are at least as skilled as Gaunt's Ghosts...

Eldar-unlikely
Chaos- Metal boxes? Doubt it.

I'd probably say that the Sisters won Soulstorm... their ending seemed the most possitive in my mind...

Chaos, Blood Ravens, Dark Eldar, Normal Eldar, Necron and Tau certainly didn't win in my mind... so that only really leaves the SoB's, Orks or Guards.

How can you doubt the guard the governer packed off 100 baneblades the day before the conflict, who has 100 baneblades to ship out.

I want to say eldar, but its never really been clarified, all we know is that the BRs lost and that made cyrus sad

As much as I like to say that sisters won I would have to disagree. The fact that Cyrus survived and manage to return to the chapter indicates that the Imperial Guard won.

You could argue that Soulstorm possibly ended in a stalemate... Cyrus said that 'The campaign was a mistake'. Even though we know that the BR's lost it, you could take that as meaning it was a mistake for anyone to try and take over the entire system and that everyone suffered heavy losses.

Ig's couldn't have done that good though... if you ship off 100 Baneblades, and leave yourself with 0 to defend yourself, so you have to build them all again... that just really kicks of bad leadership to me. Add to the fact the mission where you disrupt their supply lines so easily because the routes practically undefended... You've got Valks, why not air lift supplies, or have the factories for the parts near each other so you don't risk ambush on the supply routes?

Thing is, The IG failing to aid the Marines, and also failing to aid the Sisters... If the IG HAD won, attacking the Sisters is Heresy, so the entire system would be up for investigation, and Slaughtering the emperors marines is tanamount to treason too... even if they did win, they'd have lost too as the =I= would be on their asses asap to see why the comander didn't aid forces he should have done.

The whole soulstrom idea with 9 armies fighting each other wasn't a great idea. I think the best explanation is that it was an illusion created by the Deceiver.

Didn't Iron Lore state that the cannonical ending was victory for the guard?

I'm sure I heard that.

We also know that Indrik 'Spess Mehrens' Boreal died. which is all to the good.

Looking for a friendly wargaming club on the Isle of Wight? Drop me a line.
