The first day of combat found land conquered and land defended.
After the Imperial Fists took their earnings, the Eldar attempted to take HEX 14 and 16. Thinking they were going to find the defenders of Corvex Prime but instead found nothing but Space Wolfs and the Blood Axe Orks!!
The Eldar with Blane Ulthran were able to dispatch the unprepared Warboss Skull Splita and his Ork Warband. Taking HEX 14 without heavy loses. However Ron “DP” Myopia and his Eldar soldiers were overran and lost HEX 16 to a Space Wolf Lightning Drop pod assault with the support of an Imperial Knight.
Klan Bloodmoon and Bloodmaw Grimax after taking HEX 11 without a fight stormed into HEX 9 with his Trukks. However he was repulsed by the defenders of Corvex Prime and losing most of his attacking force.
Axxio Cantas and The Betrayed went into the fray and attacked HEX 19 and HEX 2. The defenders of Corvex Prime retreated from HEX 2 however they stood their ground in HEX 19. The Leman Russ tanks and heavy guns of Basilisks where able to keep the forces of Chaos at bay.
The Tau First Strike Assault Hunter Cadre with Commander Shas O’Au’Taal Montka Kauyon attacked HEX 6 and came across a defense force of Tanks and Artillery from the defenders of Corvex Prime. Commander Shas was forced to retreat after taking heavy loses. However his second army was able to take HEX 24 after the defenders tactically retreated.
Blood now stains the battle field red. The conquest of Corvex Prime is taking shape and shall continue. Day two shall bring more blood shed, more steel, and more bullets to the conflict.
