The Game we rolled for was Seek and Destroy, meaning the DA were already one up.
Here it goes.
Unfortunately i cant really put up pictures of the board, but all cover gives a 4+ and there is quite a lot of it. The dark angels lost the set up roll, so they deployed a vindicator on a flank, between the building and the edge, so that no one could get by it (the cover was close to the edge). They set up both preds behind a set of ruins, and the techmarines in the massive fortress i have made (bout 8" tall and 12" broad) along with his tactical squads, Sammael was behind the size three fortress, and the dreadnought stood nearby the techmarines.
The Night lords put both rhinos on the opposite flank of the vindicator (which was more open, but further from the demolisher), along with the raptors and bikes. The chosen infiltrated in behind the vindicator, near to a tactical squad (within 12" actually, this is the khornate one ^^) while the plasma chosen were nearby the predators, ready to put the plasma guns to good use. The daemon prince went behind cover in the center of the board.
The night lords won turn one and hurriedly set off up the board, the bikes turbo boosting. The daemon prince stood behind the plasma generator (looks like the DOW chaos one) in the centre of the board, trying to hide from the techmarines servitors. The khornate chosen emerged from behind the cover and hurtled towards the tactical squad. The other chosen squad advanced behind the predators ready to hurt them if they came out of cover (they couldnt see them, but if the predators wanted to see my rhinos/chosen they would have to expose themselves).
The shooting phase consisted of nada.
In the assault phase the khorne chosen zoomed into the first tactical squad, and with the help of frag grenades they hit at the same time (so no difference). They wiped out the tactical squad to a man (7 kills from the lightning claws, ouch!!) and consolidated behindd the cover, hopefully out of the dreadnoughts assault range.
The movement phase consisted of the dread moving towards the khornate chosen, the vindicator moving back and facing the same chosen (gulp) and the preds daringly goign through cover, and facing the bikers.
The shooting phase.... you need to have been there.
The techmarines let it rip onto the rhinos, the first squad decimating the rhino with the melta guns. the second killing everybody inside (7 hits with plasma cannons, eek!) the last squad fired at the daemon prince, causing a wound (luckily). The dreadnought opened up on the Khornate chosen, killing 2 with its cannon. The the vindicator killed another 5, so i had 1 left....
The preds killed..no, MAULED the bikers, with 3 misses (all the autocannons funnily enough). The only tactical squad opened up on the shooty chosen, killing 1 because of the nifty invulnerable =).
In the assault phase the dread plowed into the champion, as dreads do (im sure you all know it) nothing happened, end of.
The turn opened with the crackling energy of deep striking. An oblit popped off of the last khornate chosen. At the other end the daemons appeared from the shooty chosen, appearing on the other side of the cover, within charge range of the tactical squad. Also an obliterator risked going off the board edge but appeared behind the vindicator, with his meltagun warming up. The last rhino hurtled foward and disgorged its passengers in front of the tactical squad, using the rhino as cover from the techmarines. The raptors hurtled up to the front of the preds, along with the tzeentchian chosen. The daemon prince merged from his cover and braced for the techmarines salvo.
The shoooting phase began with the obliterator blowing the demolisher cannon skyhigh off the vindicator. The other obliterator killed 2 servitors from a techmarine squad with its plasma cannon. The meltas from the raptor squad both missed....
Then the shooty chosen let rip on the back of a predator, blowing everything off of it, but not destroying it, and saving an overheat roll. The chaos marine squad opened up onto the tactical squad, who didnt get any cover saves, leaving 3 standing. The havoc launcher wounded a servitor but did nothing, and the combi bolter missed.
The assault phase was short and ugly. Basically the raptors killed the space marines. And the dreadnought did nothing, while the chosen stuck a krak grenade to its combat arm, blowing it off!!!
Movement- n/a, except my m8 forgot about sammael, and moved him into range of the nasty obliterator.
Shooting-ridiculous! Ok... where to start....
a techmarine suddenly thought, "Look, a big nasty with wings and a sword!". I.e a techmarine squad that was full functional took 2 wounds off of the daemon prince, causing pain. The remaining predator shot at the shooty chosen, killing 3. The techmarines with 2 servitors left killed the oblit near the remains of the vindi (which had immobilised itself in the building). Then the other squad killed 7 marines from the chaos marine squad, frying a servitor in the process. Sammael took a wound off of the oblit with his plasma cannon.
Sammael went flying into the obliterator, and mauled it with his power sword. While the khornate chosen and dreadnought stood doing nothing.
Movement- The daemon prince hurtled into the ruins where the techmarine was hiding, rolling a 2 for dangerous terrain. The raptors flew up the fortress, preparing to shoot at the techmarine with 2 servitors. The 2 marines with plasma guns ran through the gate, aiming at the techmarines. The shooty chosen ran up to the predator *grins*.
also, THE TERMINATORS ARRIVED!"!!!!!!, right next to sammael =D.
Shooting- The termies let rip into the master of the ravenwing, inflicting 2 wounds. The plasma gun wielding marines both exploded (4 ones, then 2 twos) but the raptors killed the techmarine and his two servitors. The shooty chosen blew up the predator =).
Assault- Unfortunately the daemon prince was JUST out. The khornate chosen immobilised the dreadnought.
Movement- The deathwing terminators appered right next to my raptors, looking fairly unhappy Sammael headed off towards the daemon prince, hopefully going to kill it.
Shooting-The techmarines let rip, killing 2 Termintors and 1 tzeentchian chosen, while the deathwing termies went pew pew, and killed 4 raptors. Sammael did nothing with his guns.
Assault- Sammael hurtled into the daemon prince, who, thanks to warptime, smashed him into the ground. Sammael didnt even wound......
By this time the daemons has slunk unknown up to the unmolested techmarines squad, but swiftly changed direction and headed towards the termies, the tzeentchian chosen headed toward the termies as well. My termies went for the unmolested techmarine squad, hiding in a bunker.
Shooting- The raptors killed a terminator.
Assault- The daemon prince went ROARROARROAR!!!! and charged the techmarine squad, killing them all. The raptors and lesser daemons piled into the deathwing, and the raptor champion killed one, while the squad claimed another. Then the daemons sat looking pretty. But then the termies went smashysmash and killed 3 raptors, leaving the champion.
The Khornate champion killed the dreadnought, but it killed him too!!!.
It was at this point i was happy to be chaos. The techmarines opened up onto the daemon prince, killing it... but it wasnt enough to halt the tide.
The Daemons killed the terminators while the slaaneshi raptor sat looking pretty, then they went towards the remaining techmarine squad.
Turn 5 the end....
The raptor, daemons and termies all assaulted the techmarine squad, and lived happily ever after.
And now i have to go =) hope you liked it =P
I think I found a couple problems with your report.
"The chosen infiltrated in behind the vindicator, near to a tactical squad (within 12" actually, this is the khornate one ^^)"
The closest you can infiltrate to an enemy unit (without going into decimals) is 13". Even if they can't see you, you must be over 12" away, preventing a first turn charge with anything moving 6".
"7 kills from the lightning claws, ouch!!)"
Unless I did my math wrong, the most attacks you can get from Khornate Chosen AC with LCs is 6.
"the last squad fired at the daemon prince, causing a wound"
"a techmarine squad that was full functional took 3 wounds off of the daemon prince"
Daemon Princes do not have 5 wounds.
Also, you might have just left them all out (and passed like, all of them), but I didn't see anything about Leadership tests, especially on the two chosen units who suffered massive casualites and the raptors who got taken down to a man.
OTher then these things, good report. Victory to chaos!

Not a bad read at all, A+
Currently working on I.Repent, Part one of the Lost Astartes Story
If anyone is interested let me know and i will share some unfinished product :)
Also have a codex, and miniatures in the works
@ Aether-Moose, there were 2 khornate lightning claw champions in the squad, i should have written *2pairs of lightning claws* my apologies.
Also i dunno bout the chosen, i thought it had to be 12" (not more than, i just checked and i was wrong) but it was my friend who said i was in range =), but it was a fun game, so *raspberries*
The three is a typo, woops! =P Should be 2
By behind the vindicator well hang on
l l VINDICATOR
l CHOSEN l
The box is cover, and this is from the perspective of the board, to me they were "Behind" it, from my POV (the game had a lot of big buildings, i went nuts on cities of death, sue me). I was playing from the side, really helped with calculating LOS.
Also i didnt mention LD tests as we didnt fail a single one, good guessing! although the icon of glory saved me a few times =)
And thanks for the feedback you two =), my first report.
