The other unit of Tzaangors deployed in the other ruined building in the bottom right corner of the field where the other Objective marker was. Primarch, Ahriman and the Exalted Sorcerers were at the top center of their deplotment zone grabbing some cover.

2017-04-07 17.08.18

During the Movement phase Prosperians brought an empty Kharybdis Drop Pod right on top of the Space Wolves force deployed in the top left of the board. The Claw did not scatter.

2017-04-07 17.14.30

It’s post-Deep Strinke flaming attack didn’t do much damage, however it was able to wreck the Razorback in the corner after it fired off all of it’s Twin Linked Missle launchers. This gave the Sons once Victory point for First Blood.

Magnus flew across the board directlly towards the enemy and manifested Boon of Flame which conjured up a Burning Chariot of Tzeentch.

Wolves landed one of their drop pods in teh bottom left of the board.

2017-04-07 17.41.35

The Drop pod itself used its built-in weaponds to fire at the other unit of Tzaangors hiding out in the Ruins in the bottom right of the board.

2017-04-07 17.47.02

Kharybdis assault claw somehow managed to survive all the incoming enemy fire, losing a couple of Hull Points. However, charging Wulfen finished it off in close combat.

On the other side of the battlefield a Rhino carrying some Fenrisians moved right next to the hated Exalted Sorcerers at which point the unit inside disembarked, shot and was getting ready to charge.
