The game
I raced forward into bolter range but took many casualties to star cannon fire.

Nevertheless my rhino delivered the HQ into a guardian squad, duffed them over in the assault and ran them down. Unfortunately they were then shuriken catapulted to death.

Other units arrived in the fifth turn but in tiny units and were overwhelmed in the last turn.


Learning points
  • Too slow to execute the assault I needed.
  • Could do with a 2+ for the Lieutenant to save him being cut down by massed small arms fire.
  • Lack of bite in the assault with no power weapons or characters with numerous attacks.
