Deployment:
 
00aTerrainSetUp_zps223c0d4b.png

The table was predominently flat with a hill in the middle on my right. There were 2 small ruins* and a
large bit of broken pipe in my deployment zone, a ruin* and a wood* in my opponents and a rock
formation in the middle on my left. Finally there was another ruin* just to the right of the centre.
*Objectives inside
 
00bDeployment_zps39766cef.png

I deployed my obliterators behind the ruin in the right side of my deployment zone, my vindicator
deployed next to them. In the centre my Land Raider (with Khârn and Berserkers inside) deployed
next to the big pipe, the Prince deployed behind the Raider and my CSM unit with the 2 plasma guns
deployed in their rhino behind the pipe (out of LoS). Finally I deployed my other unit in their rhino
on my left flank as (hopefully) a bullet magnet.

My opponent clustered his chimeras around the ruin in the centre of his deployment zone except
bastonne's unit who flanked his medusa on the left. The Russ squadron deployed in between the 2.
His sniper unit deployed in the ruin as did the manticore.

Infiltrators - my melta chosen deployed in the rock formation out of LoS of bastonne's chimera (12"
away) while my flamer chosen deployed just behind the central ruin (18" away). He then placed 1
of his units of Ratlings in the wood in his deployment zone and the other on top of the hill.

He used Creed's USR to scout Bastonne's Chimera up to my melta chosen.

He then failed to steal the initiative and I began.

Turn 1:
 
01aIronWarriorsTurn1_zps7652387d.png

My Movement:
- The Melta Chosen moved up to get on the side armour of bastonne's chimera.
- The Raider and Rhinos created a wall of steel next to the wood, Khârn exiting alone to go for the Ratlings.
- The Obliterators and Vindicator lined themselves up on his russ squadron.
- The Prince stayed behind the Raider but gave himself LoS to the sniper unit.
- The Flamer Chosen advanced into the central ruin.
- The Raider and both Rhinos popped smoke.
My Shooting:
- The Meltas saw off Bastonne's Chimera, a couple of lasgunners dying in the process.
- The Prince lashed the unfortunate Snipers 11" out of their Ruin and towards...
- The Flamer Chosen. The 3 that could fire toasted the unit leaving the Sergeant, 2 Snipers and the
Autocannon team left on 1 wound.
- The Vindicator then shook the Exectutioner sparing me hot plasma death the next turn.
- The obliterators Hoping for more success did nothing with their Lascannons.
My Combat:
- Khârn wiped out the Ratlings then consolidated behind the wood and next to the Raider.
- The Melta Chosen charged Bastonne's unit, killing only 1 for no loss. Bastonne's nerve failed and the
unit was run down.

- - - - - - - - - - - -

Game called at the start of turn 4 as my opponent only had his Manticore and 3 Ratlings left facing down almost my entire army.

I'd only lost:
- 1 Obliterator
- 1 Melta Chosen
- 4 Flamer Chosen including the Icon
- 7 Berserkers
Total: 352pts

Conclusion:
- OW!!!!
- Switching my units of CSMs so they, rather than my Chosen went in the Rhinos really worked, plus losing their
Autocannons in favour of an extra Plasma Gun in 1 squad and the Combi-melta in the other definitely made me
more aggressive with them, which really worked in this game.
- Khârn was a Beast... Pure Win from turn 1.
- My opponent was unnaturally scared of my chosen, it may be because they have visited horrors unnamed on him
before, but in this game they weren't the real threat.
- Had we continued we worked out that by the end of turn 4 I would have held 3 Objectives and Contested the 2 others.
(and my opponent would have had nothing left!!)
