I own both of the armies but a friend played chaos. The SoB army included an Inquisitor Lord with retinue in a chimera, 3 sisters squads, 1 dominions with flame throwers in an immolator with a flame thrower, 1 retributors with heavy bolters in an immolator with heavy bolters, 1 exorcist, 3 penitent engines, and a squad of seraphim. Chaos had a tooled up Daemon Prince, 1 squad of terminators, 3 squads of berserkers, a squad of bloodletters, 1 predator with lascannons, and a dreadnought with a plasma cannon.
Chaos started, with all the berserkers failing their blood frenzy rolls and surging forward towards the sisters' lines. The Predator moved into position to fire towards the chimera but its shot missed. Dreadnought Janus went into fire frenzy, slamming a sisters squad with its plasma cannon and liquefying three of them. The Demon Prince stalked behind cover, ready to assault.
In the sisters' first turn, the various squads moved into position, with the seraphim flying behind a hill. The penitent engines, groaning under the strain of their sins surged forwards. The exorcist let loose a hail of missiles against the predator, immobilising it, while the sisters fired off their bolters, felling a number of berserkers. The retributors and their immolator started with their heavy bolters. When the smoke and dust cleared, half of a berserker squad lay mangled on the ground while their comrades cleaved their heads off of their shoulders.
The Daemon Prince began his incantation and a portal to the eye of terror opened close to the seraphim. The goats of Khorne emerged from it and attacked the flying sisters. The berserkers moved even closer towards the other sisters, while the dreadnought, in fire frenzy again, failed to hit anything. The predator's crew took careful aim at the exorcist and managed a glancing blow which was deflected by its spaced armour. The bloodletters assaulted the seraphim and slaughtered them, even though 3 of them were returned back to the warp in the process.
The Chimera and the Dominions' Immolator moved towards the berserkers. The Dominions jumped out while the two vehicles let loose fiery death on the berserkers, burning alive one of them. The exorcist fired another fussilade against the predator, penetrating its armour three times and obliterating it, while the retributors with their heavy bolters fired again towards the berserkers, leaving alive only an aspiring champion. The penitent engines smashed into the last squad of berserkers, cutting into shreds three of them (i was unlucky with my d6 rolls on attacks). The rest of the sisters fired their bolters, but the Emperor was not watching and they felled only 1 berserker.
Dreadnought Janus started moving forwards and fired its plasma cannon at the retributors, killing their veteran sister superior and two of them. With a blood curdling scream, the Daemon Prince charged the penitent engines to help his berserkers. Another squad attacked the dominions, while the lone champion of the third moved forward with his powerfist. In the end of the assault, 2 engines were left smoking ruins, their occupiers absolved of their sins against the Emperor, while the Dominions were slaughtered to a woman, despite having the preacher accompanying them fell the enemy champion.
Seeing the sisters' lines ready to be overrun, the Lord Inquisitor exited his chimera and steadied himself to assault the Daemon Prince with his retinue, confident in the acolytes' mancatchers. The exorcist managed to destroy Dreadnought Janus, but the rest of the sisters' fire was innefective, owning to the traitors' armour and absence of targets. In the assault, the remaining penitent engine was also destroyed, with the Daemon Prince and his berserkers smashing into a squad of sisters.
A hissing noise overshadowed all else in the battlefield. The second squad of sisters looked behind them and saw traitor terminators appearing behind them! At the same time the remaining bloodletters charged them. Their spirit broken, the sisters fled into the humming chainaxes of the terminators, who happily collected more skulls for Khorne. The Daemon Prince and the berserkers slaughtered another squad of sisters, even though only one berserker was left alive due to the sisters' Act of Faith that increased their speed, as well as to their bolter fire. The lone champion, in range of the retributors, charged them and crushed their heads with his powerfist. The Daemon Prince, seeing the inquisitor out of his Chimera, sweeped into him.
Things looked bleak for the sisters. Most of their armour was surviving, but they had almost ran out of troops, except for one squad of sisters which let loose a barrage of bolter fire against the chaos terminators, using another Act of Faith. Four of them were dead, their armour pierced by the Emperor's might. The Exorcist fired its rockets against the bloodletters, sending them back to their dread lord, while the immolator fired its heavy bolter at the remaining champion, felling him.
The remaining terminator and a depleted squad of berserkers assaulted the last sisters' squad, killing all of them in close combat, but the terminator along with most marines also died, a result of Acts of Faith. In a swirling melee, the Daemon Prince and his lone, soon to be dead, berserker, fought the Inquisitor Lord and his retinue. The two leaders exchanged blows and in the end, both were left battered but alive, although the same could not be said for their retinues.
The sisters' long range firepower destroyed the remaining berserkers, leaving only the two leaders alive. The Inquisitor brought the Daemon Prince to within one inch of his life, but failed in the end, his head rolling to the ground after the glaive struck him for the last time. The Daemon Prince, seeing the helpless chimera next to him, assaulted it.
The Daemon Prince attacked the Chimera reducing it to an unrecognisable heap of metal, and then assaulted the nearby immolator.
Seeing ony the prince left alive, the remaining sisters' vehicles let loose with all they had. Two shots penetrated his armour, but the Daemon Prince was so fuelled by anger that he felt almost nothing, as he tore apart the immolator.
The game should end about then, with the sisters having an exorcist and a heavy bolter immolator left, while the World Eaters had a Daemon Prince with one wound. We decided to see who would survive so we continued. The prince made all his armour or Feel no Pain saves and destroyed the immolator and then the exorcist. Things became interesting when the exorcist blew apart and wounded the prince, who failed his armour save. Khorne was satisfied with him though, so his Feel no Pain roll was successful, leaving him wounded and alone in the battlefield...
Talk about destructive! That must have been a fun match!
For give me for my ignorance but what do mancatchers do and what wargear did you Inqui have?
Watch this before posting:
Posting and You
Inquisitor had scourging - to be frank I forgot to use it, inferno pistol, master-crafted power weapon, but I'm still fine-tuning him, might have to put in a force weapon or rosarius.
Mancatchers are acolyte weapons that, well, restrict enemy models in close combat, I don't think I can embellish further without breaking some copyright.
that was a nice battle report. What happened to those bloodletters? They kind of disapeared after they tore up the saraphim. Were your squads of sisters blocks of 20, or blocks of 10?
The remaining bloodletters were destroyed by a volley from the exorcist (got to fire 6 rockets at them).
Sisters were fielded in blocks of 10 with one veteran sister superior and a storm bolter.
I'm still trying to decide if seraphim are worth it. But so far I've seen nothing too useful being done by them. Your little battle only helped to mount more badness upon them.
I adopted a cute lil' poison fetus
from Fetusmart! Hooray fetus! </a>
then check out THIS OLD BATTLE REPORT and tell me what you think of them. This is with the old rules for them, however they still kick as much butt now as they did then in my opinion. I won't lie to you, they are difficult to use affectively. In the wrong hands they will be squandered in hopeless strategies, and merely waste points. I have had battles where thats all they do. I have had many more where they are the center peice of my army and win the day for me.
