Magnus in swooping mode, flew across the baord and landed just behind the three Imperial Knights hoping to bypass their 3++ Ion Shield save. Ahriman and the Sorcerers got shot up in the previous turn, and moved down gunning for cover and line of sight, so they can regroup. Bikers moved up the field, to hold the lone Tactical Objective in frount of the ruins and perhaps get some shots of into the coming Knights with their Melta Guns.

Imperial Knights were not that concerned with the Herald of Tzeentch on Burning Chariot that Magnus conjured in the previous turn. Instead they were using their battle cannons to pepper the field with heavy strength blasts.

Sons took some casualties but managed to get some Tactical Objectives.

2017-02-25 15.31.45
