The 6´th Cadian army core commanded by General Jones Sparkling had been stationed in the Markutis system the last 5 years. General Sparkling and his men had set up headquarters in the capital on the systems primary planet, Markutis IV.

From here the regiment was supposed to protect the planets mining production from space bandits and other external threats. But the 6´th soon found themselves doing nothing but driving around the countryside keeping the constantly menacing Ambulls at an arms length from all important installations.

The 6´th Cadian regiment used to be a vital fighting force, where veterans from numerous campaigns formed the regiments core units. But the 6´th had gotten used to peace after 5 years of inactivity, and were no longer as tough as they used to be.

Sparkling scorned at the planetary governor Addrat, who for too long had chosen not to prioritize the planets military units. The planetary army was poorly equipped and even poorer trained. Only now in the face of danger had the governor initiated a full mobilization. But Sparkling feared, that the mobilization was too little and too late.

All incoming reports indicated the same. The orks had halted their advance towards the Squat landing site in the south, and were now bringing down massive amounts of infantry from their space hulk. A huge ork army was on the move heading for the capital.


Sparkling would counter the orks as far from the capital as possible. Their advance had to be stopped if the mobilization should be efficient. Finally the 6´th army core moved out. They were heading for the ork lines. The two massive armies collided at a place called The Eden Platou.

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

All the orks around Warboss Blackmaine had noticed it. Blackmaine was not the same after da stunties shot him up. A large portion of his scull had been replaced with iron plates making the warboss act strangely. The mighty warboss mood varied enormously, one second his was focused and serious, and the second after the orks found their leader trying to communicate with flies.

But Blackmaine was still to be feared, he still commanded the orks, and he had ordered a full out attack at the capital. Row upon row of orks from all the clans marched across the waste land blasting away any Ambulls or imperial forces, that were foolishly enough to show themselves.

The wast green tide surged towards the humans capital with out any real opposition. But finally the puny humans mustered an army. Blackmaine was overly joyful with the coming battle. With a large grin Blackmaine ordered the Bad Moon warboss Clawfinga to the back of the column. That yellow weakling could stay behind with all da runts. Blackmaine would have all da humies to himself.

The ork mek Roth Grablafist hummed his favorite song, as he toyed with the ambull controller. The Ambull ran around in all directions obeying the mekboys slightest touch. Grablafist worked his way to the front of the lines. He could not wait to try his new Ambull on the humans.

Pre battle.

This game was played with 2500 points pr. side and secret missions. Each side got 2 strategy cards.
A new Ambull would appear on a roll of 6 each subsequent turn, ff the Orks´ domesticated Ambull was killed.

-
General Sparkling gazed upon The Eden Plateau. He knew, that he had to take and hold the entrance to The Eden Plateau. Only by taking and controlling that point could he fend off the orks advance on the capital.
He had a few fighter aircrafts available represented in the Bombing run strategy card. He also held the Craven Coverdence strategy card.


Orks

Most of Warboss Blackmaines black hair squig had been removed in order to reconstruct his skull with solid iron plates. It was all part of the crude, but brilliant work from the painboy, who brought Blackmaine back to life after the Battle of Buckmann Hulls research station. As a consequence Blackmaine had to use one of his wargear options on a Steel Scull. Unfortunately for Blackmaine his mood for the Battle of Eden Plateau was fear. The large ork feared his squat opponents. Not quite a fitting mood for a waaarg Warboss.

But even though Blackmaine was scared he still knew, that taking all the High Grounds on the Eden Platou would pave the way for further advance of his ork army. From the high grounds the heavy weapons cover the boys as they marched onwards.

Blackmaine started with the strategy cards Covering Fire and Surprise Assault

IPB Image
The Eden Platou was a cold and isolated place, with Pine trees scattered all over. An imperial two storage building sat on the western end of the battlefield. From the center and eastwards was a large ridge in which a trench had been dug on the northern side and a large cave was dug in or the southern side of the ridge.

Green stars marked the Orks three high point, and the yellow star marked the Imperial Guards objective.

Deployment.

IPB Image
The two armies clashing on the Eden Platou.

The orks deployed on the southern end of the battlefield. The warbikes was deployed on the western flank, supported by the Goof mob riding the battlewagon. The woods in the center of the orks deployment zone concealed the Deathscull dreadnought, Mek Grablafist and his Ambull, the Shokk Attak gun team and the pulsarokit.

IPB Image
Ork deployment western flank.

The center held the tanks. Both the Gobsmasha and the Blood Axe Predator. The Wild boyz in the Gobsmasha were extraordinarily ready to this battle. The Orks played the Covering Fire strategy card on the Gobsmasha.

The Bad Moon mob and the Death Scull mob were both deployed on the eastern flank, safe behind a screen of grechins and supported by the Warphead. Further to the east the Blood Axe Dreadnought had taken up position.
The Kommandoes had crawled forward and were hiding in a trench on the eastern flank.

IPB Image
Central deployment.

Warboss Blackmaine had whipped his orks good. They had raced across the plain in a mind blowing pace, clashing with the Imperial forces much sooner than they expected. The Orks played the Surprise Assault strategy card, limiting the imperial tanks to slow speed only in the first turn.

--

The 6´th Cadians deployed on the northern end of the battlefield. Their western flank was mostely held by the Red Platoon including the Red command unit. Red Platoon was supported by a chimera.

Deployment western flank

General Sparkling and his regimental HQ, including psyker Skaab was placed firmly in the center, supported by the Rough Riders, a Leman Russ Battle tank and a Chimera. The Markutis local militia deployed in front of General Sparkling, who had wisely ordered Commissar Lothar to bolster the militias morale. One squad from Black platoon also deployed in the center.

IPB Image
Imperial Guard central deployment

The rest of Black Platoon had taken the eastern flank and deployed units and command unit in and among a group of pine trees just short of the Eden Platou it self.

General Sparkling had held a Chimera and an additional Leman Russ Battle tank in reserves.

--

The imperial guard opened with a pre battle bombardment. The radio interference was only at level 3 making the guardsmen’s artillery units fairly accurate.

Once the initial bombardment began artillery shells showered the ork lines. The dreaded Pulsa rokit was destroyed in the blast earning the guardsmen 1 VP. Another shell struck Roth Grablafists Ambull, but the sturdy creature somehow survived.

Orks turn 1.

The warbikers roared ahead turning left around the large imperial building effectively covering the western flank. Their twin linked autocannons sprayed the 2´nd and 3´rd squad from Red Platoon killing 5 guardsmen. Both squads made their break test and stood their ground.


The battlewagon advanced 10 inches and the entire Goof mob and Warboss Blackmaine flooded the large imperial building like a black tidal wave.

IPB Image
The Goofs speeding ahead.

The deathscull dreadnought and Mek Grablafist with his Ambull all ran behind the battlewagon up to the large building, where they fanned out and took cover.

The ork armor in the center advanced as fast as possible. Within the Gobsmasha the strongest wild boy took the controls and raced through the gap between the large imperial building and the beginning of the Eden Platou. The Gobsmashas battlecannon fired at the Chimera supporting Red Platoon. The shell pierced the tanks armor and the hull exploded, sending the Chimera out of control and completely destroying the vehicle. This earned the orks 2 VP.

The twin heavy bolters followed up and fired upon 3´rd squad from Red Platoon killing another 2 guardsmen, but jamming the weapons.

IPB Image

The Blood Axe Predator hasted up on top of the Eden Platou, from where the entire Imperial Guard was visible. Its lascannon fired at the Leman Russ but failed to penetrate the tanks´ tracks. The Predator also fired its autocannon and remaining lascannon at the Black Platoon command squad, killing two guardsmen. This proved too much for Black Platoons Lieutenant, who broke and took cover in the nearby woods with the remaining men from the command squad. After decimating Black Platoon command the Blood Axes in the Predator wisely fired their blind grenades effectively hiding the Predator behind a screen of blind interference smoke.

The Kommandoes hiding in the trench reveled themselves and fired a hail of boltpistol fire down upon 1´st black squad killing 3 guardsmen. The sergeant managed to steady his troopers, who made their break test.

Further back on the eastern front the Warphead, the Bad Moon mob, the blood axe dreadnought and the Grechins all advanced towards the Eden Plateau and the caves dug in the plateau it self.

With a flux of 9 both the orks and guardsmen had plenty of warp cards on their hands. The Warphead summoned the powers of Mork and played Da Krush on 1´st Black squad crushing one guardsman.

Imperial psyker Elias Skaab reached out with his mind and saw the shokk attak gun posing a threat. The psyker played assail on the mek carrying the shokk attack gun and dragged him closer to the imperial lines and in to the line of fire.

The Warphead retaliated killing the heavy bolter armed guardsman from 1´st Black squad bringing the squad down to 50 % strength earning the orks another VP.

Eilas Skaab covered the 3´rd heavy squad from Red Platoon in dense smoke and displaced them into the large imperial building on the western front, desperately trying to halt the Goofs advance into the building.

Orks: 5 VP (0 + 2 destroying the Chimera, +2 breaking Command Squad Black Platoon, +1 for 50 % casualties 1´st squad Black Platoon)

IG: 1 ( 0 + 1 for destroying the Pulsa Rokit).

Imperial guard turn 1.

Compulsory moves.

The Chimera on the western flank was out of control. The tank moved forward and left before exploding. The blast set the guardsman with autocannon from Red Platoon 2nd squad on fire. But his heavy weapon buddy managed to put out the flames during the turn.

IPB Image

A lone imperial star fighter swooped down upon the orks on the eastern flank and dropped its bombs In the inferno 3 orks from the Bad Moon mob were killed, before the fighter returned to base. The IG had played their Bombing Run strategy card.

IPB Image

On the western flank 3´rd squad Black Platoon moved forward taking up defensive positions around the destroyed Chimera. One of the heavy bolter teams in 2nd squad Red Platoon fired their heavy bolter at the Shokk Attak gun, who had been dragged out in the open. But the heavy bolter double jammed, and the Mekboy survived.


In the large imperial building on the western flank the guardsmen from 3rd squad Red Platoon hastily set up their heavy bolter and fired at point blank range at the black mass of advancing Goofs. Frags grenades were thrown at the advancing orks, and when the dust settled 5 Goofs were dead. But 3rd squad had not stopped the Goof mob and bitter close combat awaited.

IPB Image
3rd squad Red Platoon on a suicide mission in the large imperial building.

1st squad from Red Platoon had set up their lascannons on a flat building and were able to target the area between The Eden Plateau and the large imperial building. They let loose with the 3 lascannons on the Gobsmasha, but only managed to destroy one of the vehicles wheels sending the Gobsmasha out of control. Damaging the vehicle gave the IG 1 VP.

IPB Image
1st squad Red Platoon shooting at the Gobsmasha.

General Sparkling had problems with too many troops in the center. His Leman Russ and the Chimera could only advance 5 inches because of the Surprise assault. Not being able to advance the two tanks clogged up the guardsmen’s general advance and blocked many lines of fire. Furthermore could the Blood Axe predator on top of Eden Plateau not be targeted because of the blind clouds.

In stead the Leman Russ turned its attention at the Death Scull dreadnought. The battlecannon fired but missed. Luckily the grenade landed on the rear end of the Battlewagon that went out of control earning the IG another VP. The battlewagon would explode next turn.

IPB Image
The Leman Russ destroying the battlewagon. Mek Roth Grablafist was almost caught in the blast.

The Leman Russ also fired one of the heavy bolters and the lascannon at the warbikers but missed both shots.

Just next to the Leman Russ Commissar Lothar pushed the Markutis local militia towards the objective, but the militia wisely tried to find cover behind a minor wood. 2nd squad Black Platoon also advance along the minor wood. Covered by the blind smoke the guardsmen flamed the Shokk Attak gun setting the Mek on fire, but not killing the large ork.

IPB Image
The general advance in the center. Unable to advance the Chimera, the 2nd squad Black Platoon choose to exit the vehicle and advance on the objective on foot.

One the eastern flank the sergeant from 1st squad Black Platoon bravely attacked the kommandoes in the trench. The surviving guardsmen lobbed frag grenades at the orks in the trench, but not a single grenade hit home. One of the grenades bounced back, and the unfortunate guardsman was only saved by his flak armor. 1st Black Platoon was now surely doomed.

IPB Image
The brave advance of 1st squad Black Platoon.


In the physic phase psyker Skaab killed the burning Mekboy armen with the shokk attak gun with caramine assain. The Warphead retaliated with Da Krush on the doomed guardsmen from 1st squad Black Platoon killing only one.

Orks 5 (5+0)
IG 3 (1 +1 for damaging the Gobsmasha, +1 for destroying the Battlewagon)

Ork turn 2.

Compulsory moves.

The Battlewagon drove straight ahead and squashed the fence next to the large imperial building before exploding and coming to a permanent halt. Onboard the battlewagon was an Evil Sunz mekboy with mekboy tools. He was killed in the explosion.

The gobsmasha rolled straight ahead before coming to a permanent halt just next to the guardsmen’s deployment zone.

-

Warboss Blackmaine roared Waaargh as the Goofs charged the guardsmen from 3rd squad Red Platoon holding the large imperial building. With axe and bolter the Goof hacked their way through the guardsmen, killing all 4 guardsmen holding the terrace on first floor. The Goofs used their follow up move to gain access into the building it self. The few brave guardsmen from 3rd squad still defending the building made their break test.

Last line of defense. The few remaining guardsmen from 3rd squad Red Platoon getting ready to meet their maker.

From the large imperial building could the noise from the warbikers be heard. The bikers skidded their bikes as they cornered the building and drove straight into the center of the imperial lines. A single unlucky warbiker momentarily lost control over his bike making him unable to fire the autocannons this turn.

The rest of the bikers let loose with their autocannons at point blank range. In a hell storm of bullets were 6 guardsmen from the local Markutis militia killed, and the meltagunner from the Regimental Command Squad. Commissar Lothar quickly grabbed the few survivors from the militia and steadied their nerves, as they again were commanded forward. Killing over 50% of the militia earned the orks another VP.

IPB Image
The warbikers ride their bikes into the center of the imperial lines killing numerous guardsmen.

Among the carnage in the center the Gobsmashas heavy bolters fired at 3rd squad Black Platoon, who were still holding their positions around the destroyed Chimera. But the heavy bolters jammed and no guardsmen were killed.

Behind all the destruction in the center stood the Death Scull dreadnought with a clear shot at the guardsmen advancing on their objective. The ork in the can fired the heavy bolter, the lascannon and the missile launcher at 2nd squad Black Platoon only killing two guardsmen. But 2nd squads heavy team had carefully set up their autocannon that just barely escaped unscratched.

IPB Image
The Death Scull dreadnought shooting at 2nd squad Black Platoon.

The Bloodaxe driver in the predator decided to put the pedal to the metal, and raced the predator through the blind clouds and downhill from the Eden Plateau. The predator deliberately rammed into the front of the second Chimera. In a massive collision the Chimeras multilaser was destroyed earning the orks 1 VP.

But the predator took massive damage too. The turret gunner was killed, the hull breached, and the tracks were damaged causing the predator to go out of control. The damaged predator gave the guardsmen 1 VP. But the lascannon gunners were still alive, killing one of the Rough Riders, but missing the Chimera.

On the eastern flank the large bulk of orks continued their advance through the caves in the plateau, and soon Grechins, Bad Moons, the Death Sculls, a painboy, the Warphead and Grurk the Blood Axe battestandard poured onto the Eden Plateau it self. Here they ganged up with the snotlings and Runtheard from the Shokk Attak gun team.

IPB Image

The Kommandoes in the trench leveled their boltpistols at the guardsmen from 1st squad Black Platoon. In a storm of fire another 4 guardsmen were killed. The lone survivor stood his ground, even when all his comrades laid dead all around him.

Behind the Kommandoes had the Blood Axe dreadnoght lumped on to the top of the plateau. But no real targes were available to the iron machine.

IPB Image
The Blood Axe can scouting for targets.

With a warp flux of 10 the psykers found all the energy they needed. The Warphead summend the devastating foot of Mork and chrushed the last surviving guardsman fron 1st squad Black Platon and wiping the unit. This earned the orks another VP.

Psyker Skaab had difficulties finding eligible target due to the blind clouds, that hung heavily around Eden Plateau. In the end Skaab decided to Smite the Grechins, burning 4 of the little greenskins to death. But their Runtheard managed to calm them down, before again pushing them ahead of the ork main force.

The Warphead was now acute aware of psyker Skaabs precense. The Warphead leached out at the psyker with raw energy. The Eadbutt knocked Skaab to the ground and the psyker lost one wound.

Orks 8 (5 +1 for damaging the second Chimera, +1 for wiping 1st squad Black Platoon, +1 for taking over 50% on the militia squad)

IG 4 ( 3+ 1 for damaging the predator)

Imperial Guard turn 2.

The remaining guardsmen from 3rd squad Red Platoon fired their heavy bolter and threw grenades into the oncoming horde of savage Goof orks killing 5 goof boyz. But warboss Blackmaine was just behind the Goofs, and they made their breaktest easily. Lieuteanant Coleman from Red Platoon again called down artillery support, this time upon the Goofs killing a single Nob.

In the center the remaining militiamen scuffeled into safety into the nearby woods. The Leman Russ, the 3 lascannons from 1st squad Red Platoon and the survivors from 2nd squad Black Platoon all fired at the oncoming warbikers. Massive amounts of firepower was poured into the fast moving warbikers who proved difficult to hit. But in the end the guardsmen squcceded in destroying all 4 warbikes. This gave the guardsmen 2 VP.

In the center General Sparkling advanced the Regimental HQ in order to get psyker Skaab within range of the orks pouring on to the Eden Plateau. The rammed Chimera retreated from the blind clouds, and the Rough Riders mingled their way through the blind clouds trying to get to the top of Eden Plateau in order to support 2nd squad Black Platoon.

IPB Image
Smoke and disorder in the Guardsmens deployment zone.

But battle rage had grasped all the guardsmen from 2nd squad Black Platoon. The heavy weapon team returned fire at the Deathscull Dreadnought destroying the can´s lascannon arm. A secondary ekspolsion tore through the body of the dreadnought. A catastrophic malfunction in the ammo storage caused the dreadnought to explode in the beginning of the ork turn on a roll of 6. The damaged dreadnought gave the guardsmen another VP.

The brave sergeant from 2nd squad tossed a frag grenade into to oncoming horde. The ekspolsion killed 4 grechins and their Runtheard. This proved too much for the little fellas, who broke and fled ignoring the threats from battlestandard Grurk. Breaking the grechins gave the guard 2 VP.

In the woods on the eastern flank Lieutenant Smith tried to calm his nerves and bring back Black Platoon Command squad into the fight. But the guardsmen looked at him with despair, and Smith lost his faith in the emperor. Black Platoon command rolled 12 trying to rally, and Smith and his guardsmen shamefully fled the battlefield to a fate unknown.

Psyker Skaab tried to grab the warphead and drag him into the open using Assail. But the Warphead was much too powerfull and destroyed the power instead. The wounded Skaab was slowly loosing the psysic battle with the crazed Warphead.

Orks turn 3.

Compulsory moves.

The ork controlling the Deathscull Dreadnought could hear the machinery heating up all around him. With an ear deafening roar the primitive machine exploded in a mighty fire ball lighting up the frontline. Destroying the Deathscull Dreadnought gave the guardsmen another VP.

Colliding with a Chimera in turn 2 had knocked the Bloodaxe predator out off control. The predator rolled straight ahead down the slopes before again colliding with the same Chimera. But no damage was inflicted on either off the vehicles because of the low speed. The predator fired its lascannon at the Leman Russ but failed to penetrate.

The Goof mob on the western front was still pushing ahead in the large imperial building. The Goofs quickly crushed another 2 guardsmen, leaving only a sole survivor from 3rd squad Red Platoon in the large imperial building.

IPB Image
Last man standing on the stairs. Even in the face of certain death did the guardsman from 3rd squad Red Platoon stood his ground for the Emperor.

The stranded Gobsmasha still had its battlecannon operational. The crew fired the large cannon directly at the guardsmen from 3rd squad Black Platoon. The orks missed, but the grenade scattered and landed right between 4 guardsmen who were all killed. But the guardsmen were tough and made their break test, but 3rd squad Black Platoon had taken more than 50 % damage giving the orks 1 VP.

Roth Grablafist chuckled with joy. Finally his Ambull was close enough to charge. Roth ordered the charge and the Ambull hammered into an unfortunate guardsman from 3rd squad Black Platoon. The human stood no chance as he was torn apart. Small arms fire claimed the lives of a few guardsmen from 2nd. squad Red Platoon. The squad had taken over 50 % casualties earning the orks 1 VP.

On Eden Plateau the Snotlings charged 2nd squad Black Platoon, who was swamped in greenskins. The little guys were unable to kill any guardsmen, but they did tie up the guardsmen in close combat.

Further to the east, still on the Plateau the Bad Moons, Death Sculls, Warphead and battle standard Grurk all advanced towards the high ground objectives. The Kommandoes left their trench on the eastern front and advanced towards high points as well.

But the Blood Axe dreadnought, that had lumped across the Eden Plateau, appeared from behind a small wood. The ork pilot could not believe his luck. He had a clear line of sight on the humans regimental command squad. It was a narrow shot, but the human high leaders were in sight. Lascannon fire and heavy bolter shells poured through the pine trees striking psyker Skaab and killing the guardsmen’s standard bearer. Elias Skaab could not believe, what had happened, as he looked down upon his own perforated body. He collapsed dead on the ground wrapped in the fallen banner. Killing psyker Skaab earned the orks another 2 VP.

But the dreadnoughts heavy bolter just kept on pouring rounds into the regimental command squad. Several bullets rained down upon General Sparkling, perforating his carapace armor and bypassing his field. General Sparkling suffered 2 wounds of damage, but survived the attack.

In the psysic face the Warphead again crushed the guardsmen. The mighty foot of Gork crushed one of the rough riders, leaving only 3 alive. With psyker Skaab dead there was no retaliation from the guardsmen.

Orks 12 (8 +2 for killing psyker Skaab, +1 for 50% on 3rd squad Black Platoon, +1 for 50% on 2nd squad Red Platoon.)
Guardsmen 10 (9+1 for destroying the Death Scull dreadnought)

Imperial Guard turn 3.

Gravely wounded General Sparkling called upon his reserves. A tank column, consisting of a Leman Russ and a Chimera finally arrived on the eastern front.

The new Leman Russ had an easy shot on the Blood Axe dreadnought, that stood on top of Eden Plateau and celebrated his attack on General Sparkling and the psyker. The new Leman Russ fired its battlecannon and the shell struck the dreadnought right in the center.

The Blood Axe dreadnought immediately exploded in a massive fireball. Destroying the Blood Axe dreadnought earned the guardsmen 2 VP.

But the new Leman Russ was not done. The tanks heavy bolters fired at the vulnerable kommmandoes killing two.

The newly arrived Chimera followed up with the multilaser killing another two komandoes killing more than 50% of the squad earning 1 VP. But the surviving Komandoes did not break.

IPB Image

General Sparkling and his regimental squad withdrew into the pinewood away from danger. The squads brave medic ran to psyker Skaabs dead body and initiated treatment, but the damage was to massive and the medic was unable to bring back psyker Skaab.

The rough riders had finally worked their way up to Eden Plateau, where they charged the Bad Moons. The hunting lances quickly killed 3 bad moons, but one Bad Moon boy proved himself a formidable close combat fighter. The ork managed to kill the rough riders squad leader.

2nd squad Black Platoon was also locked in deadly close combat on top of Eden Plateau. Slowly the guardsmen chopped their way through the horde of snotlings removing to snotling bases. A single guardsman was killed fighting the snotlings. The brave sergeant from 2nd squad also managed to slay another Bad Moon ork.

Vicious close combat on the plateau


Commissar Lothar ordered all guardsmen around him to advance upon the objective. The militiamen stormed out of safety in the small wood and took up positions around the objective. Finally the imperial guard had secured their objective, and scored VP doing so.

IPB Image
Militia and guards covering 360 around the objective.

Further back the Leman Russ tank named Resurrected turned 180 degrees and fired all its weapon systems at the damaged Blood Axe predator from point blank range. Guns blazed and the predator was perforated with several bullets and lascannon fire. The battlecannon shell also hit the ramshackle ork tank. The predators hull was penetrated twice and but the predator endured. Within the steel tank only a single ork gunner was left alive, all other crew was dead. The surviving Blood Axe gunner operating the predators left lascannon sponson could not believe his luck. He checked his lascannon and the weapons miraculously still worked.

The guardsmen from 1st squad Red Platoon operating the 3 lascannons fired their weapons at the stranded Gobsmasha. The three lascannon beams managed to destroy the Gobsmashas Heavy bolters and battlecannon effectively destroying the halted vehicle earning the guardsmen another VP.

The last guardsman in the large imperial building lobbed a frag grenade into the middle of the oncoming Goof horde killing a single goof. Lieutenant Coleman from Red Platoon again called down artillery support upon the Goofs killing 2 more. The Goofs had suffered more than 50 % damage earning the guardsmen 1 VP.

The psysic phase was swiftly ended with an energy drain.

Orks 12 (12 + 0)
Guardsmen 20 (10 + 2 destroying the Blood Axe dreadnought, + 1 for 50% on the
Komandoes, +1 for destroying the Gobsmasha, + 1 for taking over 50 % on the Goofs and +5 for
claiming the objective)

Orks turn 4.

The Goofs in the large imperial building on the western front finally got their green hands upon the last guardsman from 3rd squad Red Platoon. He was torn from the stairs and chopped to death. The Goofs had wiped 3rd squad Red Platoon. This gave the orks 1 VP.

IPB Image
The Goofs killing the last guardsman defending the building.

The Goofs had also secured the High Ground in the large imperial building. But their struggle to get there had claimed the lives of more than 50 % of the boys, and the orks could therefore not claim any VP for taking the large imperial building.

Not far from the Goof had the Ambull finished eating the slain guardsman. Mek Grablafist steered the beast forward. The Ambull cornered a destroyed chimera and found it self staring into the barrel of an autocannon. A scared guardsman had wisely prepared for the onslaught and had gone on over watch. The bullets tore through the Ambulls tough hide and killed the beast.

IPB Image
Wups. The Ambull getting gunned down.

Rage full Mek Grablafist got his flamer ready and poured liquid death towards the militiamen holding the guardsmen’s objective burning a single militiaman.

IPB Image
Burn humies. Burn.

Warboss Blackmaine looked upon the burning guardsmen from his elevated position in the large imperial building. The warboss adjusted his kustom shota and aimed the device at Kommissar Lothar and the guardsmen around him. Several ork rokkits flew from the kustom blasta and every single guardsman guarding the objective was hit. When the smoke cleared could warboss Blackmaine count 5 dead guardsmen. Blackmaine had wiped the local militia squad with one shot. But Kommissar Lothar survived with out a scratch and still controlled the objective. Wiping the local militia squad earned the orks 1 VP.

IPB Image
The kustom blasta had strength 8 and a blast radius of 3 inches. Ouch.

IPB Image
Warboss Blackmaine looking only too pleased at his work.

The last surviving Blood Axe gunner in the predator fired his lascannon at the Leman Russ right in front of him. The lascannon beam struck the tanks tracks, that were blown clean off flipping the tank around. Destroying the Leman Russ named Resurrected earned the orks 3 VP

IPB Image
The Blood Axe predator destroying tank after tank.

Upon Eden Plateau the fierce close combat continued. Snotlings and men fought violently.But Battle standard Grurk decided to join the fight. The mega armored ork charged the Rough Riders, that were engaged with the Bad Moons. Grurks presence rubbed of on the Bad Moons, who managed to slay one of the Rough Riders. Grurk crushed both the last Rough Rider and the brave sergeant from 2nd squad Black Platoon with his mighty powerfist. Grurk had wiped the Rough Riders earning the orks another VP. But 2nd squad Black Platoon had suffered more than 50 % casualties from close combat and incoming fire earning the orks 1 VP.

IPB Image
Fighting on Eden Plateau.

On the Eden Plateau it self the Death Scull mob claimed the northern high point. The Death Sculls were at full strength and had many functional heavy weapons. Taking the northern high point gave the orks another 2 VP.

But the Death Scull mob was not done. One of the mobs boys with a heavy plasmagun had stayed put. He fired his heavy plasmagun at the Leman Russ from the relief column. The high velocity beam hammered into the tanks hull burning steel and flesh with an immense heat. The Leman Russ was instantly destroyed. This earned the orks another 2 VP.

IPB Image

In the psysic phase the warphead tried to squish Kommissar Lothar. But the kommissars iron will proved too strong.


Orks 23 (12 + 1 wiping the local militia squad, +3 destroying the Leman Russ named Resurrected, +2 destroying the Leman Russ from the relief column, +1 wiping the Rough Riders, +1 destroying 3rd squad Red Platoon, + 1 due to 50 % on 2nd squad Black Platoon and +2 taking the northern high point and placing a heavy weapon there)
Guardsmen 20 (20 + 0)

Imperial Guard turn 4.

General Sparkling found him self in a tight spot. He was severely wounded and had few intact units
left. He swiftly ordered 1st squad Red Platoon to fire their 3 lascannons at the Blood Axe predator.
But even the high powered lascannon beams could not destroy the predator. Again the surviving
Blood Axe gunner praised Mork.

IPB Image
The Blood Axe predator surviving another wolley of imperial fire. That cursed predator just refused to go down.

On the eastern front the Chimera from the relief column fired its heavy bolters at the orks upon
Eden Plateau killing the last two kommandoes. Wiping the Komandoes earned the
guards 1 VP. The turret gunner carefully aimed the multilaser at the Death Sculls holding the high
point. The laser beams cut through the orks, but the multilaser jammed twice and only a single
Death Scull was killed. The Chimera crew had failed to clear northern high point of Death Sculls.

IPB Image
The relief column desperately trying to clear the northeren highpoint. But failing.
IPB Image
The Death Sculls holding their northern high point and deploying several heavy weapons.

Scarce laser fire from the few surviving men on the remaining frontline changed nothing.

In the psysic phase the Warphead again targeted Commissar Lothar in an attempt to clear the
guardsmen’s objective. But again the tough commissar survived. Nothing could stop Kommissar
Lothar from taking the objective.

IPB Image
The lone commissar singlehanded holding the objective.

Broken imperial lines.

The battle of Eden Plateau was over.


FINAL RESULT

Orks 23 (23 + 0)
Guardsmen 21 (20 + 1 for wiping the kommandoes)

WAAAAARG.

The orks had taken Eden Plateau. Da humies got overrun with greenskins. Blackmaines orks had taken the high grounds and nothing could now stop the orks advance upon the Capital. The humies had fought well, but their lines were broken, and their warboss had been shot to pieces. Blackmaine ordered full advance upon the Capital.

The 6´th Cadian army had been divided into many smaller fractions, all fleeing towards the Capital.
Most of them would be hunted down and killed within the next few days. With out any central command the humies had no chance of mustering any reel forces who could save their capital.

Blackmaines mood changed from fearfull to overly jolly, as he raced towards the capital with the rest of the ork army. The first ork units would reach the defenceless city with in two days. Blackmaine knew, that he had now taken the entire planet. The Markutis system would soon be crawling with orks and the capital would be Blackmaines command center, from where he would reign supreme.

All that was left to do, was to eliminate the few remaining imperial and squat forces.

----------

General Sparkling was hurting. He received treatment in a forward medical center. But he knew, that he had failed. The 6´th Cadians had failed to stop Blackmaines advance, even though the orks had paid a high price for passing over the Eden Plateau.

But it was not enough. The Cadians were on full retreat. All units were retreating towards the Capital with the orks in their heels. Soon news of the defeat would reach the Capital an panic would break out. Anarchy would break out as those with means would try to save themselves. The mobilization would surely break down as discipline collapsed with in the local Markutis defense force. Sparkling knew that planet Markutis was lost and the Capital would soon turn into a death trap. He would leave the Capital to its own fate.

Sparkling ordered all remaining Cadian units to retreat towards the mountains. There he would gather the Cadians last intact space ships and try to evacuate the last sad remains of the 6´th Cadian army core if possible. It would not be easy, Blackmaines space hulk still orbited the planet denying Sparkling his escape.
