This is my first attempt at a battle report and rather that taking every turn I've highlighted the more interesting stuff. If I can get both army lists I'll post them too but for now this should do.---The Battle Report---
(Strong Point Attack 750pts)
The hellfire legion believing that the sisters of battle are corrupt and serving a false emperor decide to go on the attack. Believing that they will catch the sisters by surprise the hellfire legion concludes to make an all out attack on a bunker that guards the entrance to the sisters training grounds. This is the battle.
Arriving minutes ago the space marines decide on a battle plan that must be carefully executed to achieve victory. All units start moving out trying their best to avoid the sentries.
Five terminators fire ten shots with their storm bolters in a furious charge against a single sister of battle. The sister who seems unlucky enough to be the only being within sight is ripped to shreds by the bullets.
Due to the sound of weapons fire the witch hunters realize that they are being attacked. They call in their sentries and are prepare for battle.
Moments later the storm troopers are packed in a bunker deciding the wisest thing to do is shoot at one of the Tactical space marine squads, sadly due to their poor weapons they neglect to kill anything. Nearby is the exorcist that is launching a flurry of missiles exploding into a squad massacring three marines.
The terminators still move onwards shredding two more sisters with storm bolter fire whilst the scouts take a rest behind cover while deciding on a plan of action.
The exorcist splatters another two assault marines and the last remaining marine thinks to himself â€śMan Iâ€™m screwed, what was I thinking attacking sisters of battleâ€? and decides to run like a girl out of the combat zone.
This time the storm troopers decide to take a tad more time aiming and their volley of shots kills one tactical marine.
By now the callidus assassin that was nearby investigating a rogue psyker has finished with his business and decides to show up. Firstly he uses brain flare and failing to kill any terminators with this continues to assault them. Expertedly wielding his phase sword taken from one of the Câ€™tans he slashes three terminators beyond recognition. Unprepared for the terminators striking back he is fatally wounded and is forced to fake dead until there is an opportune moment to escape where he may tend to his wounds.
The veteran sergeant decides to shoot but is too quick and realizing that his bolter is still in the holster thinks to himself how thatâ€™s going to leave a mark.
The sisters of battle who werenâ€™t really doing much battle march towards the hellfire legions commander. They attack it with two flame throwers somehow missing so they continue to shoot it with the four remaining bolters killing another terminator. Finally an inquisitor arrives on the scene firing her plasma pistol quickly dispatching the last terminator and the exorcist continues itâ€™s rain of death killing two scouts.
The hellfire legion now looking very battered continues to fight. A tactical squad shoots six bolters but only hits with two not even scoring any wounds. This may have been due to the fact that they distracted by the insanely loud metal playing through their helmets.
The exorcist realising victory is imminent takes some laidback shooting only killing one scout.
The hellfire legion cut their losses and run home. Later they get a message from a VERY angry inquisitor asking why the hell they attacked a bunker leading to the sister of battles training grounds. They are expected to file a full report or suffer the consequences.Documented by Aunâ€™Gary
Ahem. Said WH player was me! w00t! I would like to say, not so much I'm a great general, but steve was indisisive. And he made poor deployment choices. If he had deployed a litte better, he might have got away with it (like my Sisters, eh Gary?). It was a good, fun game, and steve was an excellent opponent. Kudos to steve. All my stuff went well, apart from my Canoness, who did jack-all. I like divine Guidance.
Thanks for writing it Gary

Nice working getting this one up Gaz. Lemme see, that means you beat Alex by 53 million years or so. Nice work Alex, good strategy, wish I could have been there. Hope to have several meetings during the holidays. We do so like holidays. And I can paint reapers or something. (My dark reaper squad of 5 w/ exarch took down a charging SM assault squad of 6, with the aid of 3 stormtroopers, in combat. Even after I forgot my reapers strike before the marines, they still won, with 2 men left. The exarch alone felled 3 or 4 marines, and survived!)
Don't worry too much about life-it isn't permanent.
They say that a space marine is superhuman, a hundred times more powerful than a normal man. Mon-keigh, one hundred times zero is still zero.
Do you hear the screaming? Its Edward Scissorhands wanking...
