Mission Briefing: Force on Force on 40K Ridge

Far far in the future, in a galaxy we inhabit, a unit of Planetary militia are ordered to clear a nameless ridge 40km's outside of the human settlement of Neuamazonia.
The six Chaos survivors
Five days ago a raid of Chaos Warriors hit the Neuamazonia colony, after four days of bitter fighting they were destroyed.  At a huge cost in human lives.  Earlier on this day a final message was received from one of the Neuamazonia milita patrols, they had found the last surviving raiders.  The message was cut-short, and a drone showed a destroyed convoy on the 40KM ridge.

On the ridge are six men of the chaotic Donusa.  Contorted by the chaos of hyperspace these half-men have no hope.  There will be no reinforcements.  There will be no rescue.  They will die.  Their Lord, Donusa, will not come.  But, in their last fight they have the opportunity to take many humans with them.  

Down below the ridge a planetary militia platoon of 24 men and women with their last surviving armoured car have surrounded the ridge.  The battle of 40K Ridge has begun.

This is a 28mm version of Tomorrow's War Scenario 2 on Page 227.  Still painting my 28mm WW2, so we will use some GW miniatures.  See the mission in the book for terrain and the map.
