Counter Thrust results (WASMEx)

On Sunday the 14th of September we played our second Legendary game for the Secession.  We played Legendary Battle III "Counter Thrust" found in Horus Heresy Book I "Betrayal" on page 161, with the alterations found here.

The Imperialist forces gathered in the centre of the battlefield ready to break out through the Secessionist lines under the cover of night and dust storms.

The Secessionists hem in and get ready to annihilate the Imperialists.

The White Scars outriders melt the Leman Russes to molten sludge.

The Raven Guard and Deadpool (Vindicare) sneak behind the enemy lines to cause some mayhem

The Thousand Sons are ambushed by assassins whilst the Imperialists surge forwards.

Castrman Orth Backs up before his Fellblade is destroyed, smashing to the bastion to pieces and killing most of the Raven Guard Support Squad in the process.

The Secessionists lay down a phenomenal amount of firepower to try and hold back the Imperialists.

Fulgrim begins his slaughter of the Imperialist Scions by cutting down Apothicarion Laeradis.

 The Raven Guard Seekers take control of the mighty Quake cannon and bombard the Secessionist lines.

The Imperial Army Lightning comes in to lay waste to the Hawkshroud Knight, but failing to take down the mighty warengine.
Although the Thousand Sons, Iron Hands and Imperial Army have taken a savage beating at the hands of the Imperialists.  They are reinforced by a squad of Thousand Sons terminators.

The Secessionists on the other side of the river having a better time of it advance on the Imperialists.

The Imperialists failed in their push to break through the Secessionist lines, their assault stalled from the deadly hail of firepower laid down by their foes.

Victory to the Secessionists! 
With a victory point tally of a mighty 48/35 the counter thrust was crushed as would eventually be all the Imperialists on Isstvan III.
