Battle report - 2nd battle of Illisk

" In the jungles outside the ruins of a pre imperial city lay a deserted temple. No one knew who had built the temple, it was rumoured it predated even the ruined city it bordered. The air around the place hung thick with malice and power, not even the loacal wildlife ventured into this place. A lone archway stood in the center of the ruined temple, whole and untouched by the raveges of time, Eldritch symbols craved into its rock glowed at night and to look on them for too long was to invite madness.

It was this very gate that had drawn the attention of the followers of the ruinous powers, for they knew it's true purpose, a gate left by the old ones that allowed mortals to pass into the sea of souls. And if the proper rituals were performed then it could be used to open a warp rift allowing the immaterium to spill out ....

Unexpected "allies" move up in support of the chaos forces.
Shadowy in motive the Necrons involvement can only be assumed to be in a effort to draw imperial forces away from their tomb worlds, for if the gate is opened imperial forces will have to urgently redirect their attention.

Alas the brave imperial attack is undone by the intervention of Eldar pirates, no doubt having been paid a hefty sum they appeared without warning from the webway.

Note the special urban Camouflage employed by the scourges, so effective the imperial guard were unaware of their presence allowing them to move down the line of Leman Russ battletanks at will.

Heedless of the distracting presence of the Eldar the Grey knights pushed on to the temple inspite of heavy casualties. They sought to capitalise on the great unclean one being banished by a well placed vanquisher beast slayer shell hitting it dead between the eyes. But sadly it was to no avail, and the warp gate was fully opened unleashing the foul poison of the warp and crating a stable gateway for the forces of chaos to raid the sector.
