We played the Planetfall mission from Planetstrike with a few minor modifications. The Raven Guard got Vigilator Vræl and the surviving Terminators from Escape from the Avis Caveum game for free in a Darkwing. The Darkwing couldn't do anything other than fly on the first turn, land the second turn and jink. Vræl and the Terminators could only overwatch, fight in an assault and move towards the base entrance.
The White Scars got J'zargo free but he would be escorted by Vræl and the Terminators and couldn't do anything unless his escort were in combat, then J'zargo could fight or dead in which case he acted normally. In addition 2 stratagems were added to the Planet Strike attacker's list:
1pt Wyrm Drop: the attacker gets one extra Planetary Bombardment. If this extra strike hits a unit or building and there is no further effect. If there are no models or intact models under the template place a crater as normal and add one Burrowing Wyrm to all other games in the Deliverance lost Campaign.
2pts Steel Rain: as Wyrm Drop but the attacker gets D3+1 extra Planetary Bombardments will all the rules listed above.
Burrowing Wyrms: at the start of any game using the Burrowing Wyrms rule roll 1D6 per Burrowing Wyrm, for each roll of a 5+ add a Steel Wyrm to the White Scar's army. If the Steel Wyrm sufferes a deepstrike mishap the Raven Guard player may automatically place it and scatter as normal. Should the Steel Wyrm suffer a Deepstrike mishap the white scars player rolls on the mishap table as normal. Any instance of the Burrowing Wyrm rule is removed once the associated Steel Wyrm is killed.
The Flamer Support squad counter attacks the Outriders attacking the Bastion wiping them out.
Victory for the Raven Guard!
Although the White Scars managed to bloody the Raven Guard's noses quite severely and even free J'zargo breifly the lack of damage from the Planetary Bomnbardment hindered their progress. Coupled with an exceptionally strong counter attack from the Raven Guard in the form of the Praetor and flamer squad who killed 2 Outrider squads and the Assault squad. The Raven Guard Assault squad's late game actions saved the day for the Raven Guard.
Vræl coughed up blood and pulled himself upright. J'zargo caught Vræl unawares as the Outriders had roared in from behind. Taking a Thunderhammer to the chest was something few could survive, even amongst the post humans of the Legionnes Astartes. The Curiass of his Artificer armour was all but ruined from the blow. Ahead of him Vræl could see the Assult squad dragging the once again subdued J'zargo into Outpost 83Φ-1. As he strode towards the entrance of the subsurface base Vræl gazed upwards. Devastation rocked the skies above Deliverance as the two fleets tore each other to pieces and as lander after lander streaked down towards the moon. This fight was far from over.
