Facing this force Cybixx had called up his own blasphemous war engines as well as his new experimental AI constructs. This was deep heresy, and the new robotic units proved their worth in battle. However, the imperial force were resolute in their attack, and despite losing the Eagleclaw war engines, the Novgorod tanks held on to their objectives, forcing the chaos force to give ground.
The Eagleclaw knights were repaired post battle, but the chaos army had proved its new weaponry, despite being forced back several hundred kms towards the Vaylin Mountains. The land lost was of little worth, and having destroyed the settlement of Mt. Harender the imperium captured little more than their own ruins. However, Kutuzov had inflicted a defeat on the traitors, although the end of the war on Mordecai Tersius appeared no closer.
