We rolled Dawn of War, Annihilation, I went first.

Deployment - CSM
Lord and Terminators, Raptors and Chosen are in reserve.
Deployed Berserkers, Plasma Plague Marines and Daemon Prince, each other close by to another to the right, behind some ruins.

Deployment - SW
Land Speeders are in reserve.
Priest with Raven and 2 rhinos with Grey Hunters are deployed, about 24 inches away in the middle.

Turn 1 - CSM
Turn 1 was pretty amazing. Moved everything forward 12, and tried to blow up a Rhino with rapidfiring plasma. Passed distance test, and oh jesus, 3 ones out of 4 dice. Seriously. Both Plague Marines fail armor save, FnP save and dropped right on the spot. Nice first turn. It gets better, wait!

Turn 1 - SW
Rhinos drive by the Berserker Rhino, Living Lightning and 3 melta shots manage to explode it through smoke. Berserkers landed into the crater without a scratch, with chain axes ready to rumble.

Turn 2 - CSM
Everything comes forward from the long edge. Lord comes from reserves and fails a deep strike within 12 to at least melta some rhinos. Scatters far away, into a crater. Well, at least no casualties on the landing.
TL Reaper Cannon manages to land one shot on the rhino, no effect. Obliterators blow up one Rhino, and shake another. Berserkers and Plague Marines throw some bolter fire on exposed Grey Hunters+Rune Priest, no effect.
Daemon Prince with failed Warptime charges Rhino, Berserkers charge Grey Hunters. Berserkers go first, 28  WS5 S5 attacks take out... one Grey Hunter. Seriously, Wolf Standart is amazing. Then Daemon Prince easily blows up a Rhino, 5 inches explosion radius. Lands on my Power Fist Champion and him.. I'm Rolling 6 to wound on both, 1 to save on both. Nice, any chances to at least draw combat are lost, Daemon Prince lost a wound. No fear, Grey Hunters just rolling over Berserkers before resolution. Looked kinda desperate.

Turn 2 - SW
Warptime fails. Both Speeders fail reserve rolls. And basically, everything in his army shoots at Daemon Prince. I'm saving almost all of it, and down to one wound. Rest of the force is untouched.
Jaws hit Lord and his terminators, passed 3 tests - everything's fine.
Terminators charge the Prince, who rolls horribly, landing only one wound which is saved. Prince dies. It's good enough anyway, eating a whole turn of shooting from 2000 points of Wolves!

Turn 3 - CSM
Raptors fail reserves, Chosen come into play right by the Lord and his retinue.
Plague marines disembark and walk away to the ruins. Rhino tankshocks wolf guard terminators, no effect, but lined them up - good enough. Lord and his team moves forward a little, afraid to leave cover due to lascannons and jaws running wild in the open.
Shooting is mostly ineffective. Well, actually, 3 obliterators are just in 36' range of plasmacannoning exposed Terminators. So I roll 2 hits, and 1 small scatter. 3 wounds on Grey Hunters in cover, 6 wounds on 5 terminators without cover. Hilariously, he fails a save on the guy that got 2 wound, and passes four other 5+. Amazing. Really. Really???
Oh, and Defiler Battlecannon shell scatters to nowhere with double sixes. Oh, and 2 Chosen Meltaguns manage to shake and immobilize another Priest's Rhino - shooting point blank.
Overall, Lord's shooting daemon weapon - at Long Fangs - was the most effective in this turn. Reaper wiffed once again.
Nothing to charge with. Waiting for Long Fangs to lay the fire in the next turn.

Turn 3 - SW
Speeder comes in, lands nearby Defiler and Melta PM's Rhino. Terminators embark back in Land Raider. Exposed Grey Hunters spread around, Grey Hunters near Chosen leave the Rhino and walk forward, failing both melta shots on the Rhino. Now in Assault distance for a Lord with decent terrain roll.
Shooting almost anything in the empty Rhino - shaken indefinitely. F7U12.
No assault action.

Turn 4 - CSM
Raptors fail to come in on a 2+. Lord walks towards Rune Priest and his marines, small Plague Marines squad enters the Ruins. Rhino can't move and most likely will die next turn. Melta Marines are getting ready for Deep Striking Speeder, hiding hull in the bush in the middle of the map.
Obliterators advance further, shooting Plasma Cannons at marines in cover. It's not very effective with mass Get Hot! rolls and crazy Cover Saves. Plague marines rapid fire some Grey Hunters that spead in craters in the middle, killing maybe 2 of them. Chosen shoot at the Razorback, blowing off Plasmagun.
Plague Marines blow up Land Speeder.
Chosen charge Razor, shaking him. Lord and his team charges Rune Priest and his Grey Hunters, Lord rolls 6 on his Daemon Weapon Roll. 10 attacks on the charge total with WS6 and S5. Lord splattered 4 Grey Hunters, then squad traded hits with Grey Hunters and Rune Priest, killing 1 more and taking a Power Weapon wound and Normal wound. Terminators failed both saves. Nice. Lord managed to dodge a Power Fist in the face, combat won, Grey Hunters ran off the table. Consolidation roll - 1'. Preparing to eat Lascannons in the face next turn.

Turn 4 - SW
Speeder comes into play, in between Land Raider and my Lord. Land Raider gets in position in the middle, shooting Lascannon at Chosen Rhino to no effect. Rest sits.
Shooting is not very effective, Defiler obviously blows up, Melta PM's Rhino saves everything.
No assault.

Turn 5 - CSM
Raptors come in, fail to land besides Long Fangs and land just behind their Razorback, which screens them from flamers and bolters. Nice. Lord and his termies fails to come into other Long Fang's crater, no assault next turn. They shoot instead, Daemon weapon proves it's effectiveness, killing 2 more Long Fangs.
Melta PM's Rhino speeds towards the Land Raider, both Meltas just in Melta range after disembark - both shots land, pen and explode Land Raider. 2 out of 4 Wolf Guard Terminators fail saves. Pass morale.
Obliterators blow up razorback that is an obstacle for Raptors, which then try to fry some Fangs, but no effect. Chosen manage to blow off all the weapons from Razorback. Charge - Chosen charge Razorback and wreck it.

Turn 5 - SW
Almost no movement and no effective shooting. Grey Hunters squad shooting Raptors, it's not very effective. Last Rhino blows up, Terminators charge Melta Plague Marines, both have Wolf Claws. They manage to take out two. Then 3 Plague Marines attack back, landing 2 wounds. Terminators fail both saves, at this point I'm laughing hysterically. Plague marines consolidate towards last Land Speeder. Grey Hunters charge Raptors, combat ends up in a loss for CSM, for 1 wound, morale passed, 3 raptors left.

Rolling for Turn 6 - 3, it's happening.

Turn 6 - CSM
Lord and his termies fail to come in the terrain far enough to assault Long Fangs, again. Obliterators move forward and lay off plasmagun fire on the Grey Hunters + Rune Priest in the middle. 12 TL Plasmagun shots >  Grey Hunters, finally. Lord and Termies shoot at Long Fangs, killing all but one. He passes morale.
Plague Marines blow up another Land Speeder.
Raptors manage to win the combat by 1 - 3 raptors vs 5 Grey hunters with Mark of the Wulfen, Guard with Power First, Hunters fail morale and run off the board.

Turn 6 - SW
Long Fang destroy Raptors, shooting Missile Lauchers point blank.

Win for CSM!
