Shooting:
The slugga boyz unleash a hail of lead but seem to have angered gork and mork..failing to down a single genestealer (since he was firing through the scrap heap we gave the genestealers a 6+ save as you would with firing through railing or a fence..2 wounds and 2 6's!)

Meanwhile the Burnas lets loose and incredible amount of fire..and incinerate two of the fanatics.

With the assault phase a bitter taste enters the orks mouth as they realise they are just oh so barely out of charge range of both the genestealers and the Fanatics..mutterings of "Dirty pool ole bean" are heard.

Cult Move:

The Genestealers move Directly at the Slugga Boyz
and the Fanatics fearlessly advance through the flames still smoldering before them.

and the fanatics fare even better..slaughtering 2 Burna boyz and shrugging off the Meks attacks.

..Even slaughtering the Mek as he attempted to turn tail and flee..advancing on a massacre roll towards the Warboss.

Ork Turn 3:

Big Yeller has lil to do besides get stuck in, he ignores the trailing fanatic and dives straight at the Patriarch..

Image

The Patriarch and Genestealers focus most of their rending claws at Big Yeller..but his mega armour and Cybork body leave him with 1 wound left..and despite the Patriarch using Hypnotic gaze..manages to level one S10 hit on him, instagibbing him. At the Horror the 20 Rebels break and run, fleeing off the board. 2 more orks and 1 more genestealer die.
