Turn 1

With a lucky roll of 6 on starting turn i decided to take the advantage. All units rushed forward into firing position except the vespid who moved into a position to strike next turn, hiding behind a building. Firing commenced as the Railgun launched a sub round into the raptors, downing 4 of them. The stealth suits emerged in the middle of the open field to take down 3 of the havocs resting in cover who had only just stood before a volley of missiles from the deathrains finished them off. Gun drones floated up towards the enemy, taking out another raptor before retreating behind a wall.
On the right flank the ioncannon firing into the waiting marines, but only one managed to successfully hit home. The Devilfishes smart missles roared over the forest but to no effect. The kroot, even hampered by the forest still managed to cause a few wounds on the marines, forcing another to die.
In retaliation The Chaos troops sped forward, Attack bikes turbo boosted down the left side to try and get into position, What was left of the raptors attempted to follow. The loan marine squad behind the hill knew the stealths where close, but failed to spot them (21" roll, 22" away *phew*).
The Ionhead wasn't as lucky and recieved a pummeling from the Predator, lascannons scathed the hull, but no damage was sustained.

Turn 2

Shas'O Rech'Ar was worried now, even a single Chaos warrior could spell doom if they managed to get close enough so he immediately called for reinforcements, unfortunately his tank busting deepstrike unit was on the other side of the planet and didn't get his communication, the battle would rage without him.
Gun Drones where given order to down the remaining raptors, they fired wildely on the move and managed to complete their task. Deathrains once again fired, this time their missile impacting on the attack bikes that where dangerously close, two exploded on impact leaving one remaining who the firewarriors decided would be their next victim.
The railhead once again ripped through the air, its explosive submunition smashing apart the lone marines squd behind the hill, as the smoke cleared only 3 remained alive. The stealths attempted to destroy what was left of the squad, but only one more fell.
On the right flank Rech'Ar obliterated one of the marines with his plasma rifle, quickly followed by the winged warriors of Vespid landing in the forest and unleashing a hail of nuetron blasters that added another 2 casualties. Both the Kroot and Ionhead could see nothing but the tank, so decided not to fire. Devilfish closed in, ready to unload its cargo once the predator was destroyed.
Few chaos troops remained, the Lord still lurked deep in the cover, The final few marines behind the hill attempted to fire at the Railhead, only to see their shot miss. The predator however had been luckier, its lascannons striking the Ionhead hard enough to cause the crew to faulter and prevent them from firing.

Turn 3

With the enemy vastly outnumbered Shas'O Rech'Ar called in his support, Sunforge crisis suits deep striking to the rear of the predator, luckily they managed to land accurately. Opening fire its fusion gun ripped through even the mutated hull of the predator, causing it to explode violently and cover the marines nearby in flame, but they survived.
On the left flank the gun drones advanced, peppering the trees with fire at the lord while the stealth suits jumped forward to finish off the Marines behind the hill.
With the vespid firing down the last marine next to the exploded tank chaos was about to crumble.
Then in a last ditch attempt the lord charged, coliding with the small drones who put up little fight, 4 died in seconds and fled, on the right flank obliterators appeared and lascannons rocked the devilfishes rear, the transport exploded and as the firewarriors clambered to escape the coffin three died.

Turn 4

With two of the Undivideds most powerful units bearing down Rech'Ar took drastic steps. He ordered his railhead to launch a counter attack against the lord, its railgun aimed, charged, and fired......the solid shot ripping through the lords fearsome bulk leaving a mess of blood and gore.
All other units coverged on the obliterators, Deathrains firing at range, Vespid lept forward and let off a volley, Kroot Rifles peppered the air along with the charge of burst cannons from the Ionhead soon followed by the blasts of its cannon. yet they would not die.
In a last ditch attempt Rech'Ar unleashed his fusion blaster and plasma rifle, only one obliterator fell... but it was enough.
Chaos Conceeds.
