The Iron Warriors were formed by an aspiring champion with Bolter and Power Fist, one with Plasma Gun and two more with Bolters, all of them in Power Armour, and one lesser daemon with flamer.
A very classic encounter between good and evil forces!

In the beginning the Space Marines were cautious and this let the Traitors to reach the ruined building in the centre before them. Seeing this and realizing that they could not shoot at the Traitors inside the structure, the rushed forward and made the first blood by killing the daemon on the left flank.
2nd turn of the gameThe Iron Warriors entered the house unopposed and retrieved the Archaic Record. The Space Marines then dashed into the house in hot pursuit. There were several shootouts but the Power Armour and high Grit in both sides avoided casualties.
As the Traitors were escaping with the mission objective, one Space Marine run and engaged in close combat with the aspiring champion, with fatal result. Then the aspiring champion killed the Space Marine with the Plasma Gun, whereas another Iron Warrior locked in melee with a SM at the entrance of the building, and the two other run away with the Archive Record.
Seeing they were leaving the area with the objective, the Space Marine charged in hand to hand combat again with the closer enemies, and threw a hand grenade to the ones escaping, but missed.
The aspiring champion was stun, but when he recovered, he charged and killed the sergeant SM. The rest escaped with the Archaic Record.
In the Emperor's name! is a simple (rules are 3-4 pages) and really fast game (it lasted less than half an hour), and very fun to play. Moreover, it has a very promising campaign that we will soon start to play. It is great to play again with those W40K miniatures in the Rogue Trader universe! ITEN is a free downloadable game from the guys of Forge of War and FUBAR.
