Sister Hortensya ducked down behind the scorched remains of the transepts wall as arcs of green lightning shot overhead. One of the xenos beams struck a sister and she was momentarily transfixed by the look of pure horror on her face as her form was unravelled molecule by molecule. Where but a moment before stood a battle sister of the Adeptus Sororitas clad in midnight power armour now there was only a thin drift of ash being carried away by the breeze. With the 4th catechism of righteous hate issuing forth from her lips, Hortensya rose up from cover and squeezed off a burst from her holy bolter at the legion of skeletal machines that marched in lockstep towards her position. She ducked again without seeing the results of her resistance, the hissing sound of the once intricate stonework that gave her succour from the flaying beams now evaporating under intense xenos fire compelled her to abandon her position before she was rendered dust and ash herself. Hortensya roared the benediction of martyrs at the top of her voice as she sprinted towards the chapel celebrant’s concourse chased all the way by gauss fire but the Emperor was with her and no fell xenos construct hit its mark. She dived behind a graven obsidian tabernacle and mechanically ejected her bolters magazine before ramming home a fresh one. She closed her eyes and whispered between ragged breaths “The Emperor Protects.”

Hello all and once again, welcome to another SN Battle Report! Today we see the Studio Necrons facing up against Mark’s Sisters of Battle! Mark has had a growing collection of Sisters since he first began playing Warhammer 40,000 years ago. Recently, he began re-painting his forces in order to have them to the same standard as his newer units! Both forces will be duking it out on this ruinous Imperial city set up by the SN Team! Both the mat and terrain pieces come from the folks at gamemat.eu! They offer a fantastic range of gaming mats and terrain, both with fantastic detail and texture, increasing the entire gaming experience for those playing with them!
The battlefield will sport four objectives; one of them being this Raven Guard Land Speeder which is now a wreck. This one, along with the other three objectives are in a pre-placed line through the center of the board!
Here we see an Imperial Relay situated nearby the Imperial statue. Should the Necrons take control of this, they will be able to slow down the Imperium’s plans by disrupting their communications!
The Necron forces slowly haul themselves in formation, awaiting the arrival of the Sisters of Battle. They deploy closely together, in order to benefit from the buffs that both Orikan the Diviner and the Overlord provide the army. Nearby, lie the Canoptek Wraiths, stalking the oncoming Sisters of Battle!
On the other side of the battlefield, barren and desolate, the faint sound of the Tomb Blades’ engines are heard reverberating in their close proximity, as they look to outflank and outmaneuver the Adepta Sororitas.
And on the other side of the battlefield, Mark begins deploying his Sisters of Battle, as they prepare to encroach upon the Necron forces. Lines upon lines of Sisters await the orders from the Canonness!
High above in the skies, the great Saint Celestine soars proudly above the rest of the Sisters of Battle, her presence alone inspiring the rest of the Battle Sisters. From above, she has a clear vantage point, allowing her to survey and lead the Battle Sisters where necessary in order to eliminate the threat that is the Necron army!
Both players roll off in order to determine who begins! Steven manages to win the roll off, which then sees Mark immediately rolling to steal the initiative. Armed with an SN die, he quickly takes to the table with his roll. Unfortunately for him however, he only rolls a 5, meaning he does not steal the initiative and Steven gets the first turn!
Just as the battle is about to commence, the Dominion Squads take advantage of their Vanguard rule; allowing them to make a normal movement as long as they do not end up 9″ from an enemy unit. The Canonness lets out a commanding shout, telling the Battle Sisters to advance towards the Necron forces!
Turn 1 (Necrons)

With absolutely no resistance from the Sisters of Battle, the unit of Tomb Blades quickly ride towards the wrecked Raven Guard Land Speeder, claiming the objective for the robotic undead force!

Turn 1 (Necrons)

Steven wastes no time to spend a Command Point on Adaptive Subroutines; a stratagem that allows the Canoptek Wraiths to advance and assault. This unit is terrifyingly quick, so being able to move, advance and assault means that they could very well find themselves in combat with Mark’s Sisters on Turn 1!

Turn 1 (Necrons)

The rest of the Necron forces slowly lumber towards the Sisters of Battle, finding themselves in range to fire. They aim their Gauss Blasters at one of the Dominion Squads and unleash their diabolic weaponry at the Sisters, the Gauss making light of the Power Armour donned upon the Sisters, as they slay 7 Dominions to open the game.

Turn 1 (Necrons)

Lurking around the ruinous building, the Canoptek Wraiths emerge, looking to charge into the three remaining Dominions and securing First Blood for Steven and his Necrons. Needing just an 8 to make the charge, Steven rolls a 6 and a 1! He opts to spend a Command Point in order to re-roll the 1, however, he once again rolls another 1! Unlucky rolling 1’s on both occasions. Mark Overwatches with his Dominions, but is unable to do any damage to the Wraiths.

Turn 1 (Sisters of Battle)

At the start of the Sisters of Battle turn, Mark rolls to see if he is able to perform an Act of Faith. He rolls a 3, meaning he is successful and chooses to use the Act of Faith “Hand of the Emperor” on Saint Celestine and her bodyguards, allowing them to make a free movement up the board! In order to begin turning the tide in the Battle Sister’s favour, the Dominions then open fire at the Canoptek Wraiths, managing to remove one from play!
