Battle Report! Chaos vs. Wolves

Kasrkar here, coming to you with yet another battle report!
Now, I completely forgot to post this about a month ago, so my memory of the game is a little bit rough. I myself was not in this game, it was between The Verderer's chaos and a friend of ours that will be referred to as Grandpa Rhino. Grandpa Rhino doesn't has only very recently thought of a paint scheme, and so his proxy-heavy space wolves appear as rainbow marines.

So, the game was annihilation 1500 points. Pitched battle was the deployment. Grandpa Rhino won the roll to go first, and took the first turn.
As much far as I can remember, the lists were...
-Sorcer w/ mark of slaanesh and lash
-10 berzerkers, 1 champion w/ power fist
-10 berzerkers, 1 plasma pistol
-10 Plague Marines, 2 meltaguns
-3 Rhinos with daemonic possession
-2 obliterators
-2 obliterators

-Rune Priest, random funky stuff, jaws, termy armor
-5 grey hunters, melta, mark of the wulfin
-5 grey hunters, melta, mark of the wulfin
-5 grey hunters, melta, mark of the wulfin
-Razorback, lascannon/TL plasma
-Razorback, lascannon/TL plasma
-Razorback, lascannon/TL plasma
-5 wolf guard w/ terminator armor, 1 cyclone
-5 wolf scouts, meltabombs
-5 wolf scouts, 2 meltaguns
-Land Speeder typhoon
-Land Speeder typhoon
The Verderer reserves everything, Grandpa Rhino spreads out slightly.

Top of Turn 1: Rainbow marines advance! Land speeders rush to the left side to try and box the Verderer in.

Bottom of Turn 1: Nada.

Top of Turn 2: Advanced even more, and popping smoke with vehicles in preparation for The Verderer's army to show up.

Bottom of Turn 2: A unit of obliterators deep strikes in, both rhinos with berzerkers and a sorcerer come in. Obliterators whiff, and fail to hurt the vindicator they teleported next to (see top picture). This would be the first of 3 snake eye rolls The Verderer would roll to penetrate with meltas that day.

Top of 3: Neither wolf scout units come in. Grandpa Rhino pegs one of the obliterators with a meltagun, but misses with his vindicator. Random shooting shakes/stuns both of the Verderer's rhinos and blows the bolter off of the one with the sorcerer.

Bottom of 3: The rest of The Verderer's army comes in. The lonely obliterator takes the weapon off of Grandpa Rhino's vindicator, some stuff misses, and the other obliterators take down a land speeder after coming from the flank.

Top of 4: Wolf scouts come in, the meltagun ones epic fail and miss, the meltabomb ones manage to destroy a weapon on the vindicator and immobilize it. Grey hunters melt the remaining obliterator. Razorbacks wreck the plague marine rhino and the one without the sorcerer. The sorcerer's rhino is immobilized.

Bottom of 4: Both squads of wolf scouts die to counter charges, yet another land speeder crashes to the obliterators.

Top of 5: Grandpa Rhino's shooting is ineffective, not much happens. Plague marines just barely dodge a demolisher shell.

Bottom of 5: Shooting is ineffective.

Game ends.

Score is Grandpa Rhino: 3, The Verderer: 4. Victory for chaos!

Very close game, and if the game had gone on, it could have gone badly. Talking to Grandpa Rhino about the game, he says this: "Never ever take wolf scouts ever."

Hope you enjoyed!
