Battle for the Cadian Gate – Campaign Month 2

Month 2 of the Battle for the Cadian Gate went down this past Saturday.  The wily servants of Chaos executed a Commando raid in order to recover their captured Commander…

(Note:  You should go check out the battle-blog for full details, this is but a slice of what’s available over there!!!)

Reminder: The webpage with the ruleset we’re using is located here.

Not willing to risk his super-heavy asset on a full scale assault on the ferocious Bullgryn thug, Abaddon mobilizes his spies, and discovers that Little Horus is to be transported off-planet from Solar Mariatus deeper into the Cadian system and further away from the influence of Chaos.

Details of the prisoner transfer in-hand, Abaddon mobilized a commando raid behind enemy lines.

Catachan Jack wouldn’t take this sitting down, and let an ultimately futile bayonet charge.

 

Caught unawares, the Imperial Veterans and assigned Scions were overwhelmed by the ambush, and Little Horus was liberated.

Incensed by his troops’ ability to protect the precious cargo, Sgt. Slab mobilizes a full assault on what his scouts have informed him is the “rebel base”.

It was rumoured the Knight Commander Pask himself took the battlefield, but this was never confirmed.... his movements are largely kept secret within the Cadian forces...

Heavy armour and artillery support were requisitioned for this battle, and infantry deployed ruthlessly.

Another (ultimately futile) bayonet charge.

The Chaos positions were heavily shelled, took severe casualties, and were cast out of their underground position to flee elsewhere on Solar Mariatus, while Slab conducted the procedural purging of local dissidents.

Slab himself fell in the battle, but was stitched up efficiently.  He’ll be back to the front-lines shortly.

Erstwhile, Ulmar the Incompetent moved up to the Korolis spaceport, with the Mighty Flow’ry Meadow itself…

Stay tuned for Campaign Month 3!

    1. I hear ya! I have a bunch of Orkz relic of 3rd Edition that I’m hoping to modernize sometime soon but now with my Tyranids blossoming it’s tough to find time… 😐
