ok ok i admit it, the red marines were blood angels, but my opponent didnt want to use them that way, so he decided he would call them the red marines...
Story behind the game:
the red marines and black templars have been fighting on a planet to re claim it. Mashall Damascus has been forwarding this crusade. they met fierce resistance from chaos beings. but what happened next decimated the imperial forces. the red marines heresied just after all the chaos had been defeated. they proclamed it in the name of the real emperor and death to the false. They turned on the templars and killed many of them, unsuspecting the attack, those that could fought back and other retreated to fight another day. the Marshall called a tactical retreat so they could strike without warning.
"The inquisitor has contacted us sir, he told us to destroy them, they are, ahh tied up in other matters, they need our help. this can only benefit the chapters position with the inquisitorum sir. Marshall Damascus, this battle has rageded on for to long now, even our own are growing erry, there is something about this planet something with in it, the red marines turned to the forces of evil, they mused be stopped, other wise the planet will become something we cannot imagine. our losses are staggering, we cannot keep up."
"i realise this young initiate, i am waiting for the right time. ex Chaplain Rednar has heresed and will be stoped. i have spoken with there chapter leader, he is, purifying his chapter. at dawn, we strike with everything. tommorow, the red blood will fill the plains, they shall burn.
Glory to the Emperor"
" these Black templars are making the gods most unsettled. if we are to please our new master we shall burn and destrroy there crusade. there Marshall must die, his head will make a brilliant goblet for me to drink from at our sacrifice feast. Any word from the scouts?
"no sir, they cannot locate them."
"Hurry UP, i grow impatient of your incompitence."
"we will sit tight then, tell the scouts to serach harder or they will be the sacrifice!"
"death to the false emperor mi lord" - Wow, sorry. My is spelled with a 'y' not an 'i'. Laziness is not an excuse, seeing that it's the same number of keystrokes for heaven's sake. PLEASE spell the simple words right... I beg you... - Firedrake28

The fightin groundz
The black Templars won this roll off. they decided to go first.
The crusaders and marshall got into the land raider to protect themselves from future enemy fire. the engines roared and it moved up the line. The Emprors champion lead his squad up the right flank. my chaplain lead his crusader squad close to the middle piece of terrain. wile the dreadnought and landspeeder moved up along the left flank.
The heavy bolter, assault cannons and storm bolters from teh dread and speeder opended fire on the enemy. (5 man squad with all the plasma). 2 went down from the assault cannon. 1 went from the heavy bolter and another fell from the storm bolter. 1 man remained. passing all Ld cheaks, the plasma gunner filled with chaos rage and held his ground. the land raider opened up her left lascannon, missing the first shot but hitting the second aginst the fearsom red dreadnought, a penetrating hit was scored and the dreadnough burst open leaving nothing but rubble.
the red marines realised that the chaos god were not happy, they got on with the job at hand. the bikers moved forward up to the emperors champion squadguns blazing. the lone plazma gunner held his ground wile the assault sqaud as well as squad A and B moved forward hoping to get into position for the oncoming slaughter.

the bikers were now able to assault the emperors champion and the crusaders following him. the emperors champion lifted his anchinet sword and slayed 2 of the bikers, they fought back with what they could killing 2 crusaders, those crusaders fought back before they died, killing 2 more bikers, leaving only the sergeant.

After Game Thoughts: this time i thought i would do something different, i thought i would take a character list. basically as you can see is i have beefed up my leaders. all had invulnerable saves and potent weapons. one thing i forgot to use was my holy orb of antioch. but none the less it was not needed.
for those who dont know how 20 man squads do, well you know now. basically i used it to protect my chaplain. i think it did well to come out with 4 initiates and 1 neopyte, to exact 25%.
my opponets list... umm not really sure what to think about oit. it certainly has potential, the bikes and assault squad could have been used better. the dread, well that was just unfortunate. the 5 man squads... i hate them, its either 10 (or 9) or nothing. or 20.. hahaha.
hope you enjoy reading it as uch as i did playing it. (PS sorry about spelling mistakes, i will correct them in the morning.. so tiard and sleepy...)
