Battle for the Guttar Refinery finale

The battle was lost warpsmith Colseth thought bleakly.  They had given good account of themselves but the garrison, what remained of it must be withdrawn.  Colseth sent the orders across the vox and then uploaded the timer to his own special parting gift. 
The obliterator turned and made his way towards the bunker he had emerged from.  From their he would use the tunnels to escape this place and bring death to the Imperium another day.
The Heldrake heard the warpsmith's orders over the vox and swung low for a pass.  Imperials scurried to get out of the way of the strafing run never realizing they were not the target.  Not this time at least.  The storage tanks were full and as the heldrakes shots punched through the tanks the promethium inside ignited to create a massive firestorm. If they could not have victory they would have vengeance.

 Now Colseths last revenge played out.  The last commands entered into the burning control tower had enabled a gas build up and a delayed fuse booby trap to be triggered.  Across the refinery explosions blossomed and fireballs rose up to the sky.
Colseth was unsure if he had caught many Imperials in the detonations or if he had caught any at all.  The refinery would not serve the imperials now.  Let them taste victory he thought, and let it taste like ash in their mouths.

Special thanks goes out again to Chris Edstrom (seen below) for all his help with these battle reports and his contributions to this blog.
Unfortunately due to serious issues of service with my internet provider there will be a slight week or two of no posts as a new system is put in place.  I thank everyone for their patience at this time.  Have no worries as I will be back to normal posting by the new year.  Wishing everyone a safe and happy holidays!

Battle for Guttar Refinery part6

Major Brusev fell back towards his chimera radioing in reinforcements to deal with the obliterator even as he ordered the final destruction of the Stygian Garrison.
The Vanquisher along with a squad of veterans targeted the side of the defiler.  plasma fire stressed the daemonic metal weakening it seconds before the vanquisher shell slammed into the defiler.  The weakened metal failed and the shell exploded in the heart of the stygian war machine which disappeared in a titanic explosion leaving only a smoking crater in it's wake.

The lone sentinel marched towards the immobilized helbrute and fired it's lascannon through the helm of the metal war machine.  The laser punching through with ease killing the occupant and setting the infernal machine aflame.
The other Veterans on the Imperial left flank watched the skittarii alpha fending off the stygian militia.  With a word they charged in with fixed bayonets.  The traitors turned and a few managed to raise their weapons but it was too late.  The Kharkovian veterans gutted the stygians with their bayonets even as a few knocked them to the ground and crushed their skulls with their rifle butts.

Battle for Guttar Refinery part 5

The Stygian garrison felt it's defenses starting to fail.  With their right flank collapsed and their center and left flank cracking it was only a matter of time before the end.  From above the heldrake dove down on the wyverns guns flashing as it sent a hail of shots into the artillery.  The heavy cannon rounds ruptured the ammo racks blowing apart a wyvern.

The Defiler meanwhile fired at the vanquisher however the shot went wide as the daemonic machine fired even as it was moving to reinforce the right flank.
The obliterator turned and it's hands morphed into a heavy flamer which spewed burning promethium upon Major Brusev and his command squad.  Brusev watched in horror as his brave guards and master of ordinance melted before him even as the chaos things laughter competed with their screams.

Battle for Guttar Refinery part4

Major Brusev winced as the reports came in of the obliterator ambush.  He knew the stygians wanted him to turn his forces about to face them and weaken the assault on the refinery.  he calmly ordered his units to continue the attack over the vox even as he dismounted his own transport with his bodyguards to deal with the one obliterator.  His guards leveled their grenade launchers firing anti tank grenades at the hulking chaos monstrosity.  The resulting blasts brought forth a trickle of blood as they wounded the thing but it's malevolent eyes now bored in upon them.
Meanwhile on the imperial right flank the Vanquisher and the sole surviving sentinel opened fire on the damaged forgefiend.  The lascannon ripping off the things rear legs even as the vanquisher shell punched through it's chest to destroy it's daemonic heart, leaving it a blazing hulk.

The Skittarii on the right flank continued to advance firing into stygian militia as they did.  With their augmented senses they put round after radioactive round into the militia before sprinting the distance to engage them in hand to hand.  A flurry of blows were exchanged with neither side able to gain an advantage.

In the center of the battlefield a Kharkovian veteran squad dismounted from their chimera and brought their plasma guns to bear upon the smoking helbrute before them.  A series of shots sent bolts of superheated plasma into the helbrute.  As the plasma punctured the chest it bore through reaching the onboard reactor and triggering a titanic explosion that left only a smoking crater.

On the Imperial left flank another squad disembarked fixing their bayonets as they did so to come to the aid of the Skittarii nearby.  The Chimera however fired it's heavy flamer into an open port of the refinery control tower.  Screams rang through the air as the militia inside burned alive.  Warpsmith Colseth stalked through the flaming interior setting a final sequence into the controls before making his escape through the rear exit.

The Skittarii meanwhile fought desperately with the militia.  Two of them were cut down by furious axe swings but skittarii alpha 185 tasered two of the traitors to death in turn and continued to hold knowing help was on the way.

Meanwhile the tech priest and his retinue turned to face the second obliterator.  The servitors fired a plasma cannon into the chaos creature causing it to shriek with pain.  Roaring praise for the Omnissiah the techpriest charged with his servitors only to have the obliterator douse them with burning promethium as they closed, turning the gun servitor into a lump of smoking ash.  The obliterator swung a powerfist into another servitor shattering every bone and bionic in it's body.  The tech priest swung his own power axe down at a vicious arc and caught the obliterator on its helmet,  The axe cut through the helm and through the skull dropping the obliterator.  Regurgitating binary cant in praise of the machine god the tech priest stood in triumph.

Battle for Guttar Refinery part3

Warpsmith Colseth watched the battlefield.  The Imperials were heavily committed now to turning his right flank and rolling up his line.  With savage glee Warpsmith Colseth ordered his surprise unleashed.  On the Imperial left flank a bunker suddenly opened that the Imperials hadn't bothered clearing.  Out came an obliterator it's arms forming into plasma guns as it aimed at the wyverns and fired.  Superheated plasma slammed into the side of the imperial vehicle and a set of it's terrifying mortars suddenly exploded.

In the center of the Imperial line sand suddenly blew outward as a hidden hatch appeared.  Another obliterator leapt out screaming hatred and death as his hand fused into a melta gun.  The obliterator fired into the rear of the punisher tanks blowing it's engine apart and immobilizing it.

A heldrake swung in low it's engines screaming in a wail designed to instill fear and panic.  It triggered off a series of bursts into a chimera.  Chunks of metal blew off the chimera as shells rained into it.  One of the fuel lines ruptured and a small fire appeared but still the apc's engine continued to run.

The Forgefiend though wounded lined up it's remaining gun on the advancing sentinels.  A series of shots ripped clean through the one sentinels compartment detonating the power cells and causing it to explode.

The Helbrute and Defiler again targeted the vanquisher.  Both sent a hail of fire at the imperial tank with the helbrute managing to glance the frontal armor while the defiler missed blowing a crater in front of the imperial tank.

Meanwhile a group of stygian militia rushed up towards the skittarii threatening the Stygian right flank.  With a whoosh of flame the militia drenched their foes with a flamethrower but starting a part of the refinery alight as well.  Then they raised their weapons and charged in determined to break their hated foe.  A swirling melee erupted with neither side able to gain the upper hand.
