The Ironclaw won the initiative and move first their tactical unit to the edge of the city. The first turn was a chance for both side to move troops into position ready for the next turn. There were some failed initiative rolls but nothing that would effect the deployment of key troops to key position. The House Hyperion Knightworld Army sent in the warhound titian to remove some assault marines from the building on the far right, manage to kill two stands. Then the ironclaws more thier two warhounds up to shoot at the knights warhound and manage to take the void shields down and do one hit. Then followed up with a barrage of missiles from the whirlwind unit to place another blast marker. So the knights army move the squire unit up and shoot the assault marine and break it, so the assault marine fall back to behind the hill and basically stay there for nearly the whole game. Then the iron claws send a predator unit to break the knights warhound titian by shooting it. The House Hyperion Knightworld Army was not to be out done, on the left flank it moved up the Three Knights Crusader to a hill and fire at a tactical unit and killed four stands of men and a rhino, almost breaking it. So income the lancers and shoot at the same unit and break it after getting another 3 kills. So the tactical unit flees behind a hill with forest on it. The at end of the turn it was rally time and the warhound with only one wound left failed to rally and so was destroyed out right. The iron claw units that were broken all rallied and most manage to remove blast makers and so do a;; other units on the table.

The House Hyperion Knightworld Army won the initiative and move the Three Knights Crusader second unit up on a hill on the left side and shot the Titians. Then move the Paladins around the building to the far left and gets on the flank of the warhounds. The shotting is effective but the warhound save every one of the hits.The Ironclaws move units into positions on the right flank. The Hyperion Knightworld Army send in the Errants unit to assault the ironclad warhound unit in close combat. This end up begin a big close combat and firelight action were at least three units per side are involved with the action. The action goes for two rounds and finial the Hyperion Knightworld Army win but at cost, they lose the Errants unit and a Paladin unit. The ironclaws lose the warhound unit, with the supporting units each receiving a blast marker, so at this point the Hyperion Knightworld Army have BTS. Then on the next active the iron claws finish off the Paladin unit. So the Iron claws shoot the broken Paladin unit and it fails its save and they get their BTS. The iron claws also fire missiles at the squire unit and kill 5 bases, breaking unit. Which flees. So on the right had side the iron claw assault marine assault the squire unit and manage to win the combat, after the squires kill two bases. So then Lancer unit seeks revenge and charges the assault marine unit and kill it to a man, not before they take two lancer with them in the process. Then in the end turn only one unit of the Hyperion Knightworld Army rallied.

 The House Hyperion Knightworld Army won the initiative again and so move the Crusader unit down from the hill on the right side and shoot the warhounds and mange to put down a blast marker and a take down a void shield. So then a Paladin unit moves up and shoots the Warhounds through cover etc, only managing to take down a shield. The iron claws move into tactical unit into position and then double move the predators around to shoot the Paladin unit that shot the Warhounds. The Paladin unit on overwatch shot and missed the target manage put a blast marker on the predators. The predators then shoot the paladin unit and manage to do a few hits, which the Paladin unit fails to save and they break and flee the battle for the city. The House Hyperion Knightworld Army then move the Paladin unit moves into assault the predator tanks(we didn’t stop this, we forgot that the unit had done over watch and so had done its action), wins the fight with no problems. So the predator tanks wipe out and the support units take a blast marker each. So at this point the game marine basically move units into support positions and then the game comes to a end due to time running out
