The game
I suckered the Incubi into attacking a forward squad with my HQ sitting behind to counter charge. The Plague banner killed five Incubi, the other men the rest, but the archon killed every man in the unit in return.

A lucky bolter shot took down a Raider killing six of the occupants and all the bikes fell in combat but I was wiped out to a man.

Result: Loss

Learning points
  • Well outnumbered by a faster foe I kept my army compact with a good counter charge unit. This worked well.
  • The game was closer than the first game because the enemy closed the range and went on the attack.
  • Dark lances, etc decimated swathes of men at a distance, for which I had no reply.
  • Archon just wouldn't fail his 2+ Shadowfield save.
