Thanks! And aw... damn. Ungrateful bastards, I hope rocks fall and they all die!
Painted 10 more skitarii:
And then on Thursday got a game in with them.
Second game in my mini-campaign! The forces of Chaos have swept through the outer hab districts of the Primaris Manufactorum Hive, a virulent plague before them cleansing the lesser mortals and feeding a billion sacrifices to Nurgle. The sorceror in charge of the invasion may have dedicated his soul to the plaguefather, but his mission is from Abaddon and he has decided that it would be prudent to follow through...
The next step in his master plan is to launch a double headed strike and eliminate the interference of the Grey Knights. This chapter's existence is no secret to the Black Legion, and without their veil of mystery, the Sorceror has divined the exact locations that they are likeliest to choose for landing zones, as well as what their strike cruiser is likely to do if attacked. And so, using some of the favour gained with Nurgle from his successes so far, the Sorceror casts a mighty incantation to throw a daemonic tendril of warp storm filled with phantasms of helldrake, helltalons and unknown beasts of the empyrean like a hurricane through the upper orbit of the planet! The tendril of warp storm spread and flexed, and as the world turned the orbiting ship crested the horizon and saw its peril! It fired rockets and sought to escape, but the route was ambushed and the strike cruiser crippled, left to limp away back to Titan.
In the mean time, the Sorceror having set his mighty machinations in place, personally led a small cadre of plague marines and Black Legion auxilliary havocs deeper into the Manufactorum, approaching the Grey Knight's LZ...
2000 points Skitarii with Dominus Formation, Knight Errant ally and Grey Knights allies
2000 points Black Legion with Nurgle Sorceror, Plague marines squads, havoc squads and obliterator squads, with Chaos Terminators and Lord.
Noble soldiers of the Machine God:
Disgusting unclean double traitors of the Black Legion:
The Chaos took the first turn, their rhino transports grinding forward and disgorging the foul and poisonous Plague Marine squads and Sorceror.
Heroic shooting by the brave Skitarii destroys a rhino and the odd plague marine and havoc.
Turn 2 - The plague marines assault! Obliterators drop from the sky and blitz Skitarii and a dunecrawler, laying waste to many warriors of the Machine God. The Plague marine assault is nasty, and worst of all the Plague Champion, aware of Nurgle's watching eye, whiffs all attacks but one in a challenge, strikes down the Prime and is granted ascension to Daemonhood!
Turn 3: The Mighty Knight comes on from reserve but fails to make an impression - though several plague marines are looking a touch crispier than earlier. The Grey Knights charge... at the Sorceror, their way to the Daemon Prince blocked by his hardy erstwhile squadmates.
Turn 3: The terminators arrive and make an immediate name for themselves. One falls to sniper fire, but they kill most of the Rangers! The Daemon Prince leaps up onto the jump pad a deals a huge six points of damage to the Thunderhawk!
Turn four: The Grey Knights finally kill the sorceror after a long slapfight. The Knight rushes desperately to engage the Daemon Prince but is too far away! The Terminators charge the remaining Rangers, killing them all and the Dominus along with them. The Prince grins maniacally and tears into the Thunderhawk's reactor. His body is assailed by the resulting explosion and he is left all but destroyed by the fire and the shockwave, but the Terminators and approaching obliterators escape harm.
With the Thunderhawk thus destroyed, the Skitarii reeling beneath the guns of the plague marines and obliterators and the remaining Grey Knights hopelessly ensnared in another interminable combat, the Black Legion has won the day, and will melt back into the shadows to plot their next move... an audacious advance to capture the ForgeWorld's Magos dominus herself!
