    Nice! Always good to see the bugs win a game. As a brief suggestion I would say you might want to organize your list a little more to make it easier to read in the future. I was also wondering about a couple of things in the battle. You said you had two gargoyles for a unit and im pretty sure that their minimum unit strength is at least six. Also, you mentioned that the Hive Tyrant's barbed strangler scattered, so I thought you should know that barbed stranglers dont use the scatter dice. Although they do use the large template, they roll to hit as with a normal gun. Congrats on the win!

    That's funny as! They did half your work for you with lords dying here and plasma gunners dying there. your Fex popping the landraider was hilarious! good to see the nids win a match. I don't hink his list was designed to to deal with large amounts of small creatures, and it was good to see chaos go down: it means less for us to worry about at Rhana Dandra.

    I'm probably reading too much into that, but...

    Barbed Stranglers don't scatter, they're just a regular weapon that happens to use the large blast template.
