The Road to the Imperial Palace - Midas Prime
Night Lords vs Space Wolves.
Fresh from their victory over the forces of Chaos on Crastus, the Space Wolves have come to the Imperium's aid in the war to retake the capital. While the Astra Militarum fortified their recent gains, the mighty wolf lords marched into the Chaos lines with axe and teeth bared. The largest engagement was against the Night Lords, whom the Space Wolves were evenly matched against.
The Space Wolves spread their units out and assaulted the buildings which the Night Lords were holding. They lacked heavy support but it was not needed. Once the outer lines were cleared then the space marines moved up their vehicles to support the assault. After heavy fighting the Night Lords command bunker was taken and then lost when the chaos marines launched a sizable counter-attack.
On the next day the Space Wolves received air support which assisted in clearing the area around the target but were forced to withdraw following increasing anti-air fire from neighbouring sectors of the city. It was not until the evening of the second day that the marines were able to enter the building. The Night Lords inside were well entrenched and fierce close combat fighting followed. By morning the command bunker was in Imperial hands.
