This is my first Battle Report so don't expect anything amazing.
This was a 2000 point battle over a 6X4 board/ My deployment zone consisted of 2 raised platforms with a wall for cover and some rocks and a crash site/ My enemy had the other side which was well fortified consisting of an encampment and a small fortified village. In the middle there was the rest of the crash site an a forest.
This is my army list:

From what I saw of his army he had:
5 man Death Company with Terminator Chaplin
A 10 man Space Marine Squad no upgrads
2 5 man squads one with a flamer and the other with a P-Fist Vet Sarge and his Company Captain was in it
2 Devstator Squads one with a Lascannon and 2 Heavy Bolters and the other had 2 Missile Launchers and a Lascannon
A Predator with all Lascannons, pintle mounted storm bolter and extra Armor
5 scouts with sniper rifles and a missile Launcher
an Assault squad with P-Fist, meltagun and plasma pistol
And a Dreadnought with DCCW w/ Heavy Flamer and an Assualt cannon.
We roll for the first turn and I get to go first.
I deploy my Leman Russ and Basalisk near the 2 platforms along with a Traitor Squad in between the two platforms inorder to help secure the Forest. On the side with the crash site I deployed my CSM, Mutants, a Traitor Squad and Khorne Bezerkers. I infiltrate my Chosen into the forest and the other Traitor squad is infiltrated in the far crash site (Farsest from me).
My enemy Deploys his predator behind a low wall with a squad of devstators near by for support. He the deploys a squad of 10 marines on a platform in the encampment.In the tallest building he deploys a Devestator Squad on the third floor and the scout squad on the second floor of the same building. He then deploys another tactical squad in the larger sand bag bunker, and the other (flamer) in the one closest to the forest. He then deploys his Dreadnought near the larger sand bag bunker.
I move every thing forward except for the rhino which I disembark the Khorne Bezerkers from, then move those and the chosen and the tanks (Leman Russ + Basalisk). I fire the Earthshaker Cannon from the Basalisk at the Ten man tactical squad and I nip only two of them due to the scatter. I then fire at the devstators which due to the scatter i only kill 2.
I fire with my Chosen squad's plasma guns. One overheats and the other kills a man.
(Somehow this must have scared or pissed him off because he than was out to just kill my Chosen).
BA Succesor Chapter:
The BA player moves nothing and fires at my Traitor squad (infiltrated one) with two heavy bolters, killing 4. He then fires at them with an Assault cannon, killing 2 more traitors. He then fires 6 bolter at them killing 4 more traitors. He then fires 2 Krak Missiles and a Lascannon shot at my remaining chosen killing 3. He then fires another krak missile and all his sniper rifles at my chosen and that chosen was speacial cause he survived all of that (THANK YOU COVER SAVES!!!!).
I again move everything forward except my Chosen. I prepare my Traitor squad (5 left) to charge his death company with the hope that the incoming rhino will be able to Tank shock. I then Tank shock the Death Company with my rhino. It was a waste of a tank shock due to how the Death company are fearless and just move out of the way. With my Khorne Bezerkers close I hope that my traitors can tie up the Death Company in CC so that the Bezerkers can get the charge. I then Deep Strike Abaddon and he lands 4" away from the Death Company and 6 inches away from the Dreadnought. I run him towards the Death company preparing to wipe them out. I then commence my shooting phase. I fire at the same squad with my Basalisk and I kill them all this time! I then Fire with my Leman Russ at the Predator and I scatter 9" towards the Devestators, hitting them all. Though they get a cover save only 2 are left (Heavy Bolters). It is at this moment that I decided to fire the Flamer in my Traitor Squad which did nothing. I then fire my Flamer on the combi bolter on the Rhino which misses horribly. So I then move on to the assault phase which I charge with my Traitors who dont even get an attack in and just get killed horribly. I then end my turn.
BA Succesor Chapter
My enemy again does not move and just fires at my Traitor squad which has been inching forward ( the one near the Tanks). When he tries he relizes that he cant hit them due to the forest. And he just fires his missile launcher and Lascannon at my Chosen (who passed his Last man standing test) and I save against both again. He then fires his lascannon at my Rhino and immobilses it. He commences his assault phase and charges my Rhino and destroies it . He then ends his turn.
I again move every thing forward and Then shoot 8 pistol shots at the Death Company and they dont even kill one. I then shoot at his tactical squad (the one with the P-Fist) and kill four of them. I then follow up and charge w/ the Bezerkers at the DC and I kill them all no sweat. I then charge the Dreadnough with Abaddon and I shake the crew and destroy the assault cannon. I then commence to destroy the thing (which I do... hehehehehe.)
BA Succesor Chapter
My enemy commences to deepstrike his Assualt squad and he lands nexto my basalisk. He then fires with the meltagun and plasma pistol which then causes the crew to be stunned and shaken.
The game consequently ends due to a lack of time. Under the conditions that I lost only two squads and he lost 3 squads I won.
you did not win we ran out of time i swear it true!
twas not a slaughter twas a victory
Great report, Latd seem like a really interesting army to play. Congrats on the win.
Space Wolves (Under Construction) | Circle of Orboros (Under Construction)
Grats on the presentation, it's nice for a first battle report. You had your list well-written for your army and I guess you had most of the things from the Blood Angels' army list too. But if you plan on making a battle report of a battle, you can always ask your opponent if you can copy exactly his army on a page of paper so you have it 100% accurate when you're back home and writing :)
Another advice would be to indicate somewhere before the battle what is the scenario and the deployment you both either rolled for, or agreed upon playing. Thanks to the following posts, I know now it's a Kill Point mission, but... knowing it first would be best ;)
Lastly, you only played 3 full turns out of the minimum of 5 (but a game often goes to 6, if not 7 turns). And you mention that when you stopped, you had lost 3 units and him 2... So knowing that a LOT can happen in 2 to 4 extra turns, I wouldn't call this game a win (let alone a slaughter! :D ) just yet... ;) Since it had to end because of outside conditions, in the spirit of good sportsmanship, just shake hands, say "Good game!" and call it a draw :) That's just fair, no? :)
Anyway, keep up playing and writing batreps! Hopefully next time you can play until the real end.
EDIT: By the way, how's an older army like LatD faring in 5th edition, you think?
