Belated Pre-New Year Batrep

After a stunning battle, I lost my camera under a pile of bills, preventing me from sharing it, or the works I've done recently. But the wayward camera has been found.

Sadly, being so late, I forget the major details of the battle, so this is going to be a "broad strokes" kind of batrep.

Turn 1 saw the Azure Flames run forward, taking minor casualties

On Turn 2, Objectives were grabbed and the central building was navigated. An Assualt Squad wipes out one of the Intercessor squads in a crater. They are wiped out in return and some Phobos units arrive in my backfield.

My remaining Terminator charged some Incursors. Sadly, I forgot that they get two extra attacks apiece so they end up dueling the Incursors for several turns! Some units get charges off but others fail. The melee is not kind. The Contemptor Dreadnought shoots a unit out of the building.

Turn 3 saw fights raging around the board

By turn 4, my wave had broken. The Sons of Horus marched forward.

On turn 5 I tried to salvage what I could, but I was tabled!

This list isn't very competitive. It's slow and relies on charge rolls, which are unreliable. I think that a Company Champion to help charges could work, as could some Impulsors or other fast moving weapons to support the melee wave.
