The Loyalist win the role off and choose to go first, and deploy the majority of their heavy armour in the centre of the board, 2 Spartans just being deployed off to the left of the battlefield and a Land raider deployed inside the city on the far right.

Traitors deploy exclusively in the City. Deploying their heavy armour pride and centre. Kheres Dreads on the right with 2 rhinos and Lascannon team, Master of Signals, Rhino and Last Contemptor in and around far left
structure.

Medusas and Abbadon with Justarian left in reserves.

Turn 1

Traitors didn't manage to steal. The loyalist forces push forward full steam with most vehicles going 18" forward.
http://i.imgur.com/JC41dyT.pngImage Enlarger
The 2 Spartans go up the left flank with great walls covering their advance and reach the breach head. The Fellblade races forward into a firing position as does the vindicator.
http://i.imgur.com/bRK1Ldv.pngImage Enlarger
The land raider and rhino smash their way up the right flank. The last spartan pushed deep into the centre board.
http://i.imgur.com/tyK4fZQ.pngImage Enlarger
Every blast from the Vindicator, Whirlwind and Fellblade with great accuracy rains down on the Contemptors and rhinos making all Contemptors Snap shot next turn and destroying both rhinos.

 

Traitors push forward towards their prey and ready all theor heavy weapons?
http://i.imgur.com/HoW08U2.pngImage Enlarger
Mortarion and Death Shroud get out of their Spartan, ready to assault. Everything else gains better fire positions to maximise damage.
http://i.imgur.com/On9864I.pngImage Enlarger
The Contemptors pull off a great tactical move and plug the breach in the wall. The Lascannons shoot at the land raider taking 3 Hull points off.
http://i.imgur.com/UIh2EEB.pngImage Enlarger
The Cerberus trains it's great weapon on the fellblade with only a single shot manages to penetrate it. Lascannons and the Typhon destroy the Vindicator and bury it beneath rubble.
http://i.imgur.com/SYTuF6W.pngImage Enlarger
The Death Shroud charge the Spartans blowing it up and killing 3 Pyroclast!
http://i.imgur.com/9V3Yaj3.pngImage Enlarger
Mortarion shunts and charges the Comtemptor but nothing happens.

 

Turn 2

http://i.imgur.com/IsDIZip.pngImage Enlarger
The fellblade pushes forward to try and clear the Contemptors; thunder blitzing one but the other managing to survive. Effectively holding the Spartans at bay! Vulkan displeased with this disembarks as does the Chaplin.
http://i.imgur.com/OJaUqz8.pngImage Enlarger
The Imperial Fists Spartan has to redeploy and is forced to turn around and find another route.
Elsewhere the Pyroclast and surround and cut off. The Breachers disembark out their Land raider ready to charge as do the tactical squad.
http://i.imgur.com/7LbSl28.pngImage Enlarger
Whirlwind hammers the Heavy Flamers and they fall off the board. The spartan blows both Contemptors up and Bolter fire from the tactical squad kills 1 marine.
http://i.imgur.com/NsdNBTA.pngImage Enlarger
The Pyroclast knowing their lives are sold charge the Typhon stripping 4 hull points off it, the Breachers charge the spartan destroying it and vulkan fails the 6 inch charge to the Cerberus (even with fleet!)

 

http://i.imgur.com/b9Jr0Vw.pngImage Enlarger
Abbadon and his bodyguard drop in accurately thanks to a Vox
(we decided before game that it would be cool if he cool charge the return he comes in!)
The medusas decide to stay off the board for another turn.
http://i.imgur.com/8Gm6gzZ.pngImage Enlarger
The courtyard is flooded with bodies! The Cerberus thunder blizts the Pyroclast killing 2! The Typhon falls back to survive. The Death Shroud rush to their Primarchs aid to get him back in the fight. Tactical marines advance and fall back where they are needed to. Open fire from the Lascannon squad explodes the Land Raider. Bolt pistols kill 3 marines including the sergeant. The Cerberus once again penetrates the Fellblade and the Typhon takes off 1 hull point from the Fellblade. The Master of signal fires his bombardment at the Whirlwind causing it to snap fire.
http://i.imgur.com/5nv8Ik4.pngImage Enlarger
Death Shroud make it into the Contemptor, Sons of Horus charge the Breachers and the tactical squad fails the charge through the ruins but the Contemptor makes it and pins the Salamanders in place. Farleys rusk and the Medicae charge the Pyroclast. Miraculously the Salamanders dreadnought survives all the melta bombs by making 5 out of 6, 5++ invulnerable saves! The Breachers bring down one Terminator but get slaughter and they run, the Pyroclast get slaughtered.

The Traitors secure the Courtyard!

Turn 3

Loyalists continue to push forward and press the attack.
http://i.imgur.com/YnH5Jo9.pngImage Enlarger
The Salamander Terminators get out of their Spartan ready to charge the Cerberus. And all available forces push towards the courtyard except the lone rhino heading towards the outskirts of the city knowing Medusas could turn up there. Loyalists open fire and a spartan fires all it's Lascannons obliterating the Master if Signal. Heavy Bolter fire and Lascannons kill the remaining Justarian leaving Abbadon alone.
http://i.imgur.com/aYajPK0.pngImage Enlarger
Vulkan charges the Cerberus first and then the Terminators. Vulkan smashes his hammer down first destroy the war engine first. I goes nuclear but luckily the blast scatters 10 inches and the terminators survive
http://i.imgur.com/5nv8Ik4.pngImage Enlarger
The Contemptor survives again... Saving 4 pens this time!

 

Unlucky the medusa are held up again!
http://i.imgur.com/jQ8eN91.pngImage Enlarger
The remaining Traitor forces push fall back again to a rally point this time. With most forces engaged in combat the remaining fire mainly Lascannons pours into vulkan taking 2 wounds off. The Typhon fires at the terminators but a bad scatter results in only 1 being killed. Farleys Rusk and the tactical marines charge into the tactical marines of the Salamanders.
http://i.imgur.com/e5gHbd3.pngImage Enlarger
They are wiped out to a man. Mortarion strikes and decapitates the Contemptor into two halves.

 

Turn 4

http://i.imgur.com/gbLhnIc.pngImage Enlarger
Loyalist push home the advantage and the Imperial fists Praetor and Terminators get out of the Spartan to charge the Death Shroud later.
Vulkan strides on towards the Typhon. Whilst the Tactical squad disembarks and continues on foot to the edge of the board. All remaining firepower is put into the Typhon but does nothing. Some Combi-meltas fire at Abbadon but he survives.

http://i.imgur.com/USg0qYY.pngImage Enlarger
The 11 Terminators charge and through a display of power the Death Shroud Chemically burn 3 Terminators inside their suits and tenet drop to the ground dead and the makes them fail their charge!
Vulkan however smashed into the Typhon and destroys it with his hammer!

http://i.imgur.com/ti8AcEx.pngImage Enlarger
Mortarion and the Death Shroud faced with 2 units of Termintors in for of them know the time to strike was now. They focus on the imperial fist terminators and get ready to charge. The medusas come in and in range of the Salamander terminators. Then what fire can be brought to bare on the Salamander Terminators pours their way, medusa opening first have a horrible scatter and fail to kill any, combined Bolter and Lascannon fire kills two.
Meanwhile, the Deathshroud kill another 2 Imperial Fists. Chem weapons choking the air.
http://i.imgur.com/BjxQRmU.pngImage Enlarger
Mortarion, Abbadon and the Deathshroud charge into the Inperial Fists. Mortarion challenging the Sergeant to to personal combat. After the dust settles, the sergeants shield has kept him alive from the onslaught of Mortarion and his hammer dealing a wound in return.
http://i.imgur.com/Nkw6WHN.pngImage Enlarger
The Preator and all remaining Fist's terminators lay dead. Also in return (from only 13 attacks) all 9 death shroud die (not 1 invulnerable save!!) and Abbadon is left standing in a pile of dead bodies!

Turn 5

All Loyalist forces are now converging in their final targets, bolt pistol fire stripes 2 hull points off a medusa. the Fellblade aims at the remaining Traitor forces in the right structure. Combining fore with the whirlwind, the dust settled and the Lascannons, Dreadnought and all but one marine dies.
http://i.imgur.com/WmVB8I6.pngImage Enlarger
And Vulkan charges him! this is truly a one sided combat.
The terminators charge into Abbadon and Mortarion and the 1 surviving Imperial Fist Terminator.
Mortarion fails to kill the Sergeant again and Abbadon dies, but not before he rips off the head of the chaplain, smashes the Sergeant and brings down another Terminator.

The medusas, turn to fire at the tactical squad. Farleys rusk heads toward the Fellblade.
http://i.imgur.com/Y7NArlz.pngImage Enlarger
The medusas destroy the the tactical but somehow the sergeant survives. Farleys Rusk fails the charge. Mortarion this time kills 3 Terminators and takes 1 wound in return.

 

Turn 6 to (14 or 16)

Loyalists last turn of the game sees the Spartan kill 2 medusas.
http://i.imgur.com/BTl7xDt.pngImage Enlarger
Durak Rusk gets a point blank Fellblade to the face
http://i.imgur.com/5vmddOp.pngImage Enlarger
Mortarion fighting the last 3 Termintors and triumphs easily kills the remaining terminators. The Tactical Sergeant charges and blows up the last Medusa.

 

Being more the less the only surviver Mortarion heads towards his former brother Vulkan and the dual begins!
http://i.imgur.com/pUFfLOX.pngImage Enlarger

This fight does on for ages, both taking wounds off each other and regaining wounds back but eventually Vulkan comes out the victor.

 

Great game we had, was looking like it could go either way but the the Deathshroud being killed to a man from 9 wounds out of 9 throw the game in my favour.

 

Loyalist victory!

Got to re-read the books before I decide but probably one of these:

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Th.....ETORS.html

Prefer the one on the right (the more static one).

Anyone know if the shoulder pads are separate (IE can be changed to a Legion specific one)?

Also going to be painting the right arms a deep red to signify them returning to being Dusk Raiders + they'll have miss-matched armour to signify them scavenging spares from fallen brothers. Will probably include under painted bits from the other Legions & defaced Death Guard iconography.
