First one is in the books. Facebook link to pics is below. I'll post up the report in a bit.
The armored fury of Nurgle was set upon by the Convent. Blighthaulers to our right, Bloatdrones right-center, even a Land Raider centered and 2 PlagueCrawlers on opposing right and left flanks all armored up and ready to fight were present. Pox Walkers were mostly to the left and center to take objectives. Nurglings skulked in ruins or behind Creates. It was a whole lot of fortitude daring the Sisters to even try.
To my right the Arco-Flagellents, two small squads of the Argent Shroud sisters and my Retribuors hid in the shadow of a big icy rock formation with "Uriah". In front of a more central rock formation were the Dominion and Exorcsists. Almost the rest of the force was left center, except for five brave Argent Shroud sisters to the far left intent on an objective of their own.
There were four objectives, Dawn of War deployment. My objectives were Recon, Old School and and Big Game Hunter.
The slow moving Nurgle were tricky and took the initiative. They trudged their Blighthaulers, and Land Raider (a trundling trap) forward with the Pox Walkers doing the same as fast as their decrepit bodies would allow, bet they could level only limited shots given range, terrain and the like. The mortars did do well, but the Valorous Hearts of the Sisters were undaunted and only lost a couple of Retributors and some of Pink squad when it was said and done. Notably they did put six wounds on an exorcist. Nurglings moved up to claim an objective on my left., from behind terrain where they had been skulking.
The Sisters surged forward in response, advancing upfield with alacrity and conviction. Celestine leaped forth 18" using Holy Rage and mashed into the Bloat Drone while the Retributors came out and killed one of the Blight Haulers and wounded another (much less than hoped). The Arco Flagellent on the right advanced as well in preparation for next round, corralling the enemy in. the ladies of the argent Shroud quietly advanced on the far left as well, seeing the Poxwalkers there and shot a couple of them without a word spoken.
Nurgle Plaguecrawlers fired down on the Exorcist, planting the 10th wound on it, and the Poxwalkers swarmed Celestine. She struck the Drone down but the Poxwalkers put a serious amount of attacks into her. She was nearly felled by the sheer volume of them. Pox walkers again moved towards the objective to the left, now taking control of it. The Blight Haulers tried to kill Exorcists as well, and that left precious little fire left for the many Sisters of Battle. Some of th Land Raiders fire found its mark against the Pink Squad approaching with Meltaguns, and the Lascannons miraculously did not finish the job on any Exorcists! The Emperor protects. Two Chaos Warlord had gotten out of the Land Raider and prepared to defend the right flank. The last Plague Drone jumped the rock in the center to try and kill the Celestian Squad but didnt make the charge.
The Celestian Squad took the rear objective in my deployment zone, while the other squads moved forward again. Pink Squad shot forward and fired their Meltaguns. The Red Squad moved towards the Argent Shroud sisters to my left and, between the two, annihilated the Pox walkers who had taken the Objective there with combined fire. The Retributor Squad and Exorcists killed the remaining BlightHaulers and the Belligerent Bloat drone. The Sisters of Battle hurt the Land Raider badly, leaving it with but 5 wound left. Celestine once again wailed on Poxwalkers and once again was surprised by their volume of attacks.
The Land Raider swung to my right to flee danger and get a firing angle on the Exorcist, killing one. The Plague Crawlers could no longer contribute to that effort and had to turn their tender mercies on Sisters of Battle, killing the unit of Argent Shroud Sisters to my left, and cutting the Dominion squad in half. the Poxwalkers continued to wound Celestine though with far more efficacy and she was down to one wound. The Chaos Lords fired their weapons, but kept their distance. The forces of Nurlge were rapidly losing their strength.
The Sisters pressed forward. The left objective was now firmly under Sororitas control, as was the home objective. It was time to take the others. Pink Squad shot and then made a charge on the Land Raider after failing to kill it, and caused the last wound..only a re-roll saved it. Celestine broke from the Pox Walkers to allow her to charge into the Chaos lords, and she made it to one of the two but he lived. The Retributors fired on the Plaguecrawler in the rear right deployment while dominion re positioned and fired on the Poxwalkers Celestine had left behind, finishing them with help from other Sisters. The two remaining Exorcists decided to try and finish the PlagueCrawler in the far left corner to seal that flank for good. The Arco-Flagellents charged and got all but one wound off of the Plague Crawler on the right side.
The Plague Crawler fired and charged to try and explode on us and the LandRaider fought valiantly to the end, auto-exploding and taking Celestine down, along with a large number of Sisters in the radius. The Chaos Lord who hadn't yet charged, did and was caught in the blast. There wasn't much left on the board.
The Sisters cut down the last PlagueCrawler with ease, ended the last of the PoxWalkers in his zone that were huddling behind some crates using the few remaining Dominion, and then a resurrected Celestines charge. The Nurgle forces were tabled.
Final score 37-10
