Inner Palace

 Another heresy game, this time Sanguinius and sons defend the Palace from a deamonic incursion
 Blood Angels
 Daemons emerging from a warp rift
 First turn sees all lesser daemons show up save one unit
 The neverborn lord loses three wounds from perils
 The red tide moves to charge

 Sanguinius and his dawnbreakers charge some bloodletters
 The combats devolve in a slow grind

 The golden warriors destroy the lesser daemons, then the posessed
 The Angel himself takes care of the enemy warlord next turn
 While the dawnbringers charge in the left flank
 More chaos creatures show up
 The dawnbringers strike hard, but not enough and a unit of termis is killed
 And they flee, so much for elite troops
Game comes to an end with the IX legion victorious despite apalling losses, should have stayed in my deployment zone away from the rr invulns of the vortexs

Ultimate Walls

 This week's heresy game sees the Legio Mortis hell bent on bringing down the walls of the Imperial Palace while loyalist titans from Metalica rush to the defence
 Traitor baddies
 Legio Metalica
 Knights behind the walls
 The knights come out with move twice orders
 Both sides move forwards while the traitor knights are nuked
 Another volcano shot blows up house Raven
 The rightmost Mortis loses its shields
 And is brought down by massed fire to the chest
 Next turn a warlord loses shields but the machine spirit takes control, repairing them all in one roll
 Princeps Majoris Pentecost dispatches yet another traitor with plasma blasts
With two titans down and no walls destroyed the traitors fall back

Holy Gals

 Jelena and Nora are the two main enforcers of inquisitor Ruiz, both have been gene-crafted to improve their combat prowess and equipped with ornate gear which echoes both their prefered combat style and the inquisitor's panoply. Blessed by the cardinal astral of the Matho basilica and devoted to a life of piety and purging no heretic is safe from their wrath
 Once a member of the preceptory of the Bloody Rose on Mons Sanctus, sister Nora caught the eye of Ruiz during the Maynard Heresy when she saved the life of the inquisitor. Ascended into the service of the holy ordos she prefers close quarter combat, as befitting her imetuous order, bashing the enemy with a power hammer and covering herself and Jelena behind a towering ceramite shield.

 Jelena was a ganger from Pouia, in the damp darkness of that hiveworld she plied her trade, putting her remarkable marksmanship at the service of the highes bidder. Hired by Ruiz for a local job she saw a chance for a life out of the hive and enlisted in permanent service with the inquisition. Eschewing her ganger trappings for armour and gear more befitting the ostentous performances of her lord she is still a deadly shot with her bolter and can handle herself with the integrated poleaxe.

Ruiz gets all the bit the holy warriors
