Battle Report (Death Guard vs Space Marines)

Even through his re-breather, the Brother Sergeant of the Raptors forces could smell Nurgle’s putrid stench. He stalked slowly through the ruined city, his bolter held in a firm grip. Around him, ashes fell, dusting his ceramite armor. All was quiet and still. Peaceful. One of the many sounds of death.

Beneath his heel he crushed something that crumbled like it was made of wet clay. Turning his eyes down, he saw only a mess of blood and puss and tissue that may have once been a skull. The space marine scowled and faced his brothers.

“Burn it,” he said. “Burn it all.”

At once, his men carried out his orders. Flamers ignited, birthing fires of holy flame to burn away the stench of this place in the Emperor’s name. Where the fires poured, the darkness and the snow receded. Until it didn’t.

All at once, a deathly music erupted around the Primaris marines. The fire screamed in a way it shouldn’t, the darkness roared blasphemies cursing the God Emperor and all his children. When the first bolter round rang through the hollowed-out structure and struck the brother sergeant in the shoulder, he raised his weapon in return and fired wildly into the flames for he could not see the enemy.

Bolters sang their songs of pain and death, joined swiftly by the hum of molten plasma and a cacophony of nightmarish howls. The blaze of light disrupted the Primaris’ HUDs, making it almost impossible to acquire targets just long enough that a hulking, monstrous Death Shroud Terminator could close in before being spotted.

He was clad all in white, his body was a pillar of flesh, muscle, and armor infused by the corrupting power of contagion itself. No amount of bolter fire or purifying flames could make the Terminator’s aim falter. With one swift swipe, he cut the brother sergeant in half… and thus the first had fallen in a battle that would be as swift as it was bloody.

As we close in on yet another hot summer on the Rock, the SN Team prepare the Studio for yet another battle report. In today’s report, the repugnant Death Guard take on the might of the Raptors Chapter. As usual, Pardo will be playing his Raptors list, which he has changed around slightly since it was last seen in order for him to try out some more units. Shaggy will be piloting the Death Guard, a force which he has grown to love since he first used it at the Studio. Today’s mission will be the Beachhead mission from Chapter Approved 2018, using the Search and Destroy Deployment.
