Battle one of the Conquista of Reichengrad (40k - DKorps vs Eldar)

This is the first battle of the "Conquista of the planet of Reichengrad". A battle we played some weeks ago. I have now done this small AAR, enjoy.

We gathered all the Death Korps players at our club (yes we got more then one...) and was to meet a joint Eldar force in a megabattle. If I remembers correctly it was something like 6-7000 points.

The backstory is that the Imperium has colonized a small green and lust planet and over some hundred years transformed the green planet into planet able to produce much needed war material for the ever consuming Imperium.
The only problem with this is that the Eldar race had long ago chosen that planet as a garden planet for vacations and picnics or what ever those aliens do with the planets they forget about.

The problem is that the Eldar returned to their garden planet and was upset to say at least of the human alteration of their gardens...
Concrete and asphalt was not a invention and introductions of the natural flora in taste of the Eldars.

After a totally devastating initial surprise attack the surviving human forces have taking shelter under ground and are conducting small hit and run attacks on the Eldars slowly building up and gathering their forces for a mayor attack.
The time for small arms affairs are hopefully a thing of the past, bring forth the the newly reassembled forces of the Death Korps.

The Artillery sisters... I just love my Basilisks

Lots of Dakka... Punisher and Macharius tank.

Even more firepower...

A local strong point. The Death Korps are planing to use it as a local fire superiority point. To add firepower over the heads of the advancing infantry.
Thunderer Siege tank and in the background some Griffons, mortar tanks.

BIG Eldar machinery, literately towering over anything. It look so impressive.

Eldar fireline.

Hokeygame in the forefront of the miniature game...

My Leman russ opens up with all its plasma guns on the Eldar Wraithknight (I think it was called that atleast...), taking some wounds out of it. But the Behemoth was stepping out of the smoke angrier then before...

The Elders in the tower are taking a heavy beeting from Griffon mortar tanks.

The Basilisks are just one of the units concentrating fire at this point of Eldar advance.

Infantry hit the dirt, taking cover in the open to give them cover save.

The Eldar machines are inside our frontline.

There use to be two Falcon Grav tanks here...

BIG gun... 7" template is nice... Atleast if you are on the right side of the gun...

A "Gluffs gluffs" and some footsluggers with krakgrenades attack a Falcon.

Eldar Wraitguards are not in the building anymore.... Nice work Commander...

Enemy sighted... taking aim...

This sergeant lost his last man as the witches charged in, he somehow survived and stood his ground... Leave no quarters for the Eldars.

The Eldar commanders was by now so despaired by their losses and pulled back, leaving the fields for the human reconquest.
A first and bloody nose was giving the Eldar race after their initial conquest of the planet by a surprise attack. The line was drawn and from now on, a series of hit and run attacks on the town and mayor factory's was planed. From now on the humans didn´t how to pull back and hide.
The tone was set. A first victory of "Conquista of the planet of Reichengrad" was given.

Although the casualties was mounted on the Death Korps side to, we can afford it. At last the Eldars was seeing a small glimpse of the cost it would take to keep the planet. We are grinding them down.

-For the Imperium the Emperor and the glory of the Death Korps. For the Conquista.
