The Pontifex Campaign

Battle for Spamburger Hill

2000 pts Chaos vs 2000 pts Space Wolves & Deathwing

Prologue
From either side of Spamburger Hill the opponents were slowly gathering, one side held the Emperor’s faithful, coming to purge life from all xenos and heretics alike, while the other side held the infernal followers of the Dark Gods, coming to bend all life to their will.

Deployment

Chaos Turn 1:
The Chaos Lord and his two squads of bikers surged toward the Imperial lines, while the heavier weapons opened fire at everything in sight, most notably the daemon possessed Vindicator scoring a direct (although) lucky hit on an Imperial squad of Long Fangs decimating them thoroughly.

Long fangs hit badly

Imperial Turn 1:
While the Deathwing Terminators on the ground stormed forward to meet the enemy head on, a squad of Grey Hunters drop podded in behind enemy lines, charged out and emptied their weapons unto the enemy Vindicator reducing it to a schorched crater of debris, scoring first blood in the process. The missile armed Long Fangs had no such luck as the enemy Land Raider barely seemed to notice their barrage. The Predator scored a glancing blow against the enemy Defiler.

Chaos Turn 2:
The two Rhinos let out their cargo of infernal followers, a squad of Noise Marines and a squad of Plague Marines, which immediately opened fire on the nearby grey hunters, killing everyone except a single survivor. The Daemon Prince landed and rushed Master Belial and his squad of terminators. At the same time the Chaos Lord charged them, entering an epic frenzied battle. The daemonic possessed Land Raider howls in frustration as its lascannon again seem to do no real damage to its target, a Razorback armed with a deadly twin-linked assault cannon.

Belials stand

Imperial Turn 2:
Seeing it as the only remaining sensible option, the lone survivor from the drop pod squad charged forward with his chain sword, into the noise marines, to make his last account a great one.
The krak missiles of the Long Fangs still could not penetrate the reinforced armour of the cursed Land Raider. The Predator that was previously guarding the advance of Master Belial, opened fire on the Defiler, but only scored glancing hits on the Daemon Engine. The mighty Deathwing Dreadnought charged the bikers on it’s flank, claiming it’s first kills.

What odds

Chaos Turn 3:
Belial was under assault by both the Daemon Prince and the Chaos Lord and, in the end, the battle was won by the Plague Lord. Blood dripping of the oozing blade, he continued to slay two more of the elite Deathwing. The Daemon Prince finished of the remaining Terminator. The plague marines saddled up and made haste to secure the hilltop, whilst the noise marines had no choice but to deal with the lone survivor. The Land Raider opened up, spewing forth a squad of Khorne berzerkers, the immediately charged the Dreadnought

Imperial Turn 3:
The Deathwing assault ended in a failure as they were given the wrong coordinates and landed far off from their intended objective. The lone drop pod survivor kept on fighting for his life, but doing no real damage against the overwhelming odds. The Predator unloaded all its weapons on the chaos lord, which was right in front of it, but he shrugged it all off without even breaking a sweat.

Chaos Turn 4:
The plague marines disembarked their Rhino at the base of the hill, charging upwards to claim the objective. The Land Raider continued to wreak havoc on the armoured vehicles of the Imperium. Destroying another Razorback APC, the daemon infested war machine was a decisive blow to the Imperium, unable to be hurt by the sustained missile barrage of the Long Fangs. The Noise Marines sonic weapons proved ineffective against the tactical dreadnought armour of the Deathwing. The Chaos Lord, still in the throes of battle frenzy leapt upon the last Remaining Long Fangs, wielding heavy bolters, slaying every last man.

Imperial Turn 4
In the nick of time, the Wolf guard Battle leader and his squad of Grey Hunters arrives in a drop pod at the foot of Spamburger Hill, denying the Defiler it’s view over the hill.
The Razorback aimed its twin-linked assaultcannon at the Chaos Lord, he met his gruesome end at the point of twelve smokings barrels. At the same time The predator Aimed its autocannon at the Daemon Prince blasting away what remained of it from the face of the world. The Long Fangs, far away from the hill with their missile launchers, let loose and decimated the plague marines on the hill.

Chaos Turn 5:
All the units surrounding the hill charged the Battle leader and his men, doing great damage, the champion from the Khorne Berzerkers challenged the mighty Battle Leader, but lost his life in doing so. The Defiler charged into the frenzy hoping for an easy kill, but negligence on it´s behalf, cost it dearly. The nearby Space Wolves wulfen countercharged the Defiler, and ripped the already damaged defiler completely apart.

Imperial Turn 5:
The Battle Leader took the life of the remaining Berzerkers, save one “fortunate” soul. And the Long Fangs let their missiles fly on the Noise marines approaching the hill, doing great damage. From the nearby building approached the Deathwing Terminators that had been inside, making haste towards the hill to take part in the glorious carnage on it’s top.

Chaos Turn 6:
The last Biker went head on with the Battle Leader, but without any luck. and the noise marines strode onwards toward the hill. The Land Raider aimed its Lascannons at the remaining Rhino, blasting it to cinders.

Imperial Turn 6:
On top of the hill, the Battle leader took the life of the last enemy around him, the Khorne Berzerker that had previously eluded him. While from the other end of the battle a barrage of missiles further decimated the noise marines.

King of the hill

Epilogue:
As the smoke cleared from the battlefield, a fearsome howl could be heard for miles around. The remaining wolves all turned back their heads, howling their victory over the debris filled landscape. the Imperial forces had won a small victory. However, it was not without costs. The mortal wounds recieved by Master Belial are still under treatment by the master chirurgeons of the strike force, and the destruction of several vehicles will be felt until reinforcements arrive. However, despite the losses, this day would be remembered for the perseverance shown by the mighty space marines against the archenemy.
