The xenos horde!!! Battle I: Scardiburg VI
Deployment: Dawn of War.
Mission: the Scouring
Vital industrial world for the supply of arms and munitions to the Imperium.
A desperate garbled distress signal is received by the light cruiser 'Morkaii's Axe', from the Imperial Governor of Scardiburg VI while on route to reinforce the Vlka Gungnir on Vigilus.
Commanded by a favoured Huscarl of Jarl Gunvorsson, the Morkaii's Axe is home to Battle Group 'Heimdall' made up of light packs tasked to search for the lost brothers of the 13th Company.
Wolf Guard Battle Leader Thorbjorn, trusted Huskarl in the Einjar of Jarl Gunvorsson leads the the battle group.
Racing to investigate whatever is besieging Scardiburg VI, Battlegroup ‘Heimdall' is ordered to sweep the main city. Orders simple, eliminate whatever assails the domains of the Allfather. #paintingwarhammer#warhammer40k#tyranids#hivefleetkraken
As we enter the final turn of the brutal meatgrinder game, it's been made clear that this would be a true brawl. On the defending side, the Cadian regiment is all but wiped out, with horrendous casualties among the Imperial Fists as well, bringing the plight of the Imperium into dangerous territory. The endless tide of Hive Fleet Kraken cannot be stopped, but the Imperial forces should ultimately win the day - if only a pyrrhic victory. Pictured here are the remnants of Chapter Master Vorn Hagan's command position, (the failing void-shield generator a final anchor in the crumbling defenses) with monstrous bio-titans and beasts larger than battle tanks scrambling up the cathedral walls. This world will remain in Imperial hands, but is rendered useless from the absolute destruction the campaign has wrought. Stupid iPhone cropping my movie makes it look like ass.
