Battle Report (Chaos Daemons vs Craftworlds Alaitoc)

0
434

The blind man does not know he is in the eye of a storm, for the air around him is calm and still. Safe. Comfortable. So too does a lesser mind not know they are surrounded by the daemonic, for they cannot see it for what it truly is. A liar. A manipulator. A devourer of souls.

The operation to restore the Webway portal had been plagued with delays and ill omens from the beginning, but the warlock had been tasked to ensure it would open when needed at all costs. Night and day his people had worked; first to locate the buried gate, then to pull it out of the dirt and the snow, as only then could repairs on its Wraithbone structure could truly begin.

Though the problems had begun shortly after his ship made planetfall, the Warlock had ignored every event that had taken place, every malfunction, every death… and treated them each as a matter of course. Time was not on their side, and this planet was not a hospitable place. Problems had been foreseen.

On the third day of their work, the sky had erupted into a beautiful aurora. A dazzling mantle of greens, and purples, and golds filled the heavens. Finally, the Warlock thought, we are blessed with good fortunes. That very night, the Webway portal sang to life for the first time in millennia. The work was complete; soon they would all be able to go home.

No one had foreseen how wrong they were.

When the Daemons erupted from within the shimmering heart of the portal, they struck hard and fast. Hundreds of them, maybe thousands of tiny creatures flooded the snow and attacked with gnashing teeth and claws. Behind them, flying monsters dressed up in an array of colors scorched the snow with daemonic fire, incinerating those nearest to the Webway Gate.

This Warlock was blind once, but now he has opened his eyes, and he has seen the truth.

The Daemons were always here. He had not been doing his Farseer’s work; he had been doing theirs.

He could only hope his distress call would reach his brother before he and his people were all butchered.

Put down your plastic glue, sheath your brushes and join us at the SN Studio for another gripping battle report! With the atmosphere on the Rock still buzzing in aftermath of the Gibraltar GT, Pardo is keen to get a game in and Chema, who reached fourth place at the tournament, eagerly steps up. His Chaos Daemons list is a little different to what what we are used to and, with a spare 440 points set aside for summoning, certainly stood out at the GT. Pardo will be fielding a similar Alaitoc list to the one he took to the Malmo Wargaming Weekend, a very powerful challenge for Chema. The report will unfold over an amazing battle mat from TableTop Tactics which we feel works incredibly well with the fantastic ruined city terrain by JMD Scenery. Raring to begin, Chema and Pardo warm up their dice, open their tape measures and begin deployment.
