Battle Report (Tyranids vs Adepta Sororitas)

Melodic singing filled the air accompanied by the distant thunder of heavy artillery. Arrayed in squads and standing to attention with hands splayed over their hearts in the sign of the aquila the Adeptus Sororitas of the Order of Our Martyred lady gave voice to their faith. The Hymnal of the Emperor Ascendant swelled verse by verse reaching its majestic choral finale, a call to all pious followers of the Eccliesiarchy to emulate their beloved Emperor and lay down their lives for the eternal glories of His Imperium. It was a scene that belonged in a mighty basilica hewn from marble and liberally festooned with golden statuary. It certainly didn’t belong on the verdant plains of Marnier, an unremarkable agri-world on the trailing edge of the Loculus Sector, a backwater planet in a backwater sector but home to five million faithful and the breadbasket of billions more throughout the sector. Its high output in foodstuffs and its rich biosphere were indirectly responsible for the Sisters of Battles presence here. New sounds could begin to be discerned over the Sororitas’ devotions. Bestial shrieks and monstrous roars in a million strong chorus that spoke of insatiable hunger, the great devourer had come to Marnier. Its richness in life doomed it, a prize the Tyranids could not resist. They had come from the void in the belly of bioforms that defied the laws of nature. A million times a million weapon beasts all sharing a single and terrible will to consume all they came across. As the hive ships reached orbit they began to rain spores upon the planet they intended to devour. Each the size of a large fami-hab, their outer carapace hardened and covered in mucus to survive the fiery rigours of atmospheric entry, within its numerous bladders, suspended in thick mucin slumbered the weaponised life forms that the Imperium had codified in its numerous and ruinous wars with the Tyranids. Termagaunts, Genestealers, Tyranid Warriors, Carnifexes and hundreds more. Seconds before impact the spores forcefully ejected gases from within sacs filled for this express purpose, a primitive yet effective retrothruster that slowed the spores final descent enough to ensure its payloads safe delivery. With a wet smack the creature impacted the earth, its carapace cracking open upon impact, its final act before impact and death was to send a psychic pulse that awoke its passangers who coccooned in their mucoid environment survived their hosts violent demise with nary an ill effect. With tooth and claw the weapon beasts erupted from their birthing sacs, a horde of monsters brought to term in a graveyard of their kin who had nevertheless fufiled their purpose. Instantly the gestalt consciousness of the hive marshalled them into an unstoppable wave of violence that fanned out in all directions looking for prey, looking for resistance that needed to be snuffed out so that the hive fleet might gorge on the entirety of this world’s bounteous flora and fauna. They bounded forward on two, four and six limbs to rip, tear and rend all asunder.
The sisters chants died on their lips as they beheld the living tide that reached for them, in its place orders were delayed and the sounds of boltguns being readied and vehicles rumbling forward could be heard. Each had vowed to fight and die to defend His realm. Neither side could back down. One was incapable of it, the other unwilling to countenance it.

Introduction

Welcome back to the SN Studio! We are so pleased to be hosting the amazing Adepta Sororitas again in this week’s Chapter Approved 2018 battle report. They will be taking on the studio Tyranids, pained to an incredible quality by our friends at Siege Studios, over this fantastically realistic battlefield by Gamemat.eu.

For days now the Daughters of the Emperor have been engaged in a relentless battle with the alien menace in an effort to purge them from this virgin world. With fuel and ammunition running thin, a Canoness stationed in a forested valley pauses her detachment’s advance and puts in a request with the Imperial Navy for a resupply drop. Valkyries begin rapidly descending through the planet’s thick atmosphere to the Battle Sisters’ location. At this point, heat signatures begin appearing on the Sister’s sensors. As the Valkyries emerge on the horizon, swarms of Genestealers begin clambering out from caverns beneath the moss ridden rocks. The Canoness gives the order to open fire and secure the supplies at all cost.

Deployment (Adepta Sororitas)

Mark, controlling the Sisters, looses the roll off to Nick. According to the new missions, this means he deploys his forces first. What do you guys think? Is it still an advantage to have the first turn in the Chapter Approved 2018 missions when your opponent can deploy to counter you? … There can be no doubt however, this wall of steel poses a formidable barrier for the Genestealer’s advance.

Deployment (Adepta Sororitas)

The Canoness commands her loyal Sisters forward to form a second barrier against the Genestealers. This human wall of brave warriors stand ready to exterminate their alien opponents in a torrent of righteous flame. They have the additional role of protecting the Exorcist tank, which sits a little behind their line conserving fuel.

Deployment (Tyranids)

An intense pounding, growing louder and louder as the beast approaches, this follows by a deep roar which projects across the battlefield and strikes the Sister’s lines like a strong gust of wind. An ancient Scythed Hierodule emerges behind the ranks of Genestealers, emboldening their resolve and frenzied determination to kill.

We would like to use this opportunity to mention again Siege Studios’ amazing work. With every new addition this army just looks better and better.
