We rolled a scouring scenario with vanguard deployment. It was a heavily urban environment, dominated by two large ruins. Jim stole the initiative and unloaded into the massed ranks of the chaos marines and cultists.
After some early optimism, things went badly for the Word Bearers. Full points to Jim – it is first blood to the Imperials.
All in all it was an encouraging first outing for the chaos codex. The Dark Mace will be good once it rolls higher than 1s; the cultists performed their roll well, dug in on an objective (let down by the lord, see above). Possessed are cool and I think I will regularly field spawn.
A tooled up Honour Guard in a Land Raider. Scary.
Good luck to Jim and Tim at Geelong Heresy. For next week at least I’ll be barracking for the Imperials! Cheers.
