    Borer guants move up a few inches

    Stealers run toward plague marines roll a 2 for fleet

    Carnifex and Zoanthrope move onto table

    Warriors and Gaunts line of fire is blocked by the hill, zoanthrope has no line of fire thru ruins, Flyrants can not see the plague marines

    Chaos first turn

    Noise marines move up alongside their objective, looking to support Plague marines if nessecary.

    Plague Marines move into cover

    Dread moves onto table in position to shoot Carnifex, runs 5 inches, dawn of war does not allow him to see the carnifex to fire

    Chaos turn 2

    Noise marines move into structure, no line of sight

    berserkers shoot pistols at warriors and charge into warriors and terms

    DP flys over to charge Flyrant

    Berserkers kill all warriors and 3-4 gaunts, the rest of the gaunts fail their leadership test and flee off the board, berserkers consolidate behind ruins

    plague marines annoy the carnifex but do not actually hurt it with the flamers and boltguns

    Daemon prince attempts to bolt of change carnifex, rolls a 12 and fails his save, taking a wound from perils of the warp

    dread kills 2 stealers, scuttlers lose last 2 stealers to 'no retreat rule'

    Tyranid turn 5
    sensing defeat decides to charge his carnifex into berserkers, kills 3 and dies to 2 CCw wounds and 2 powerfist wounds

    post action report

    when we reviewed the fight we decided that james's largest mistake was charging the rhino, if he had played around with it would have forced my berserkers to chase him around while he shot at them, probably moving them into the firing arc of the zoanthrope. he would have gotten 1-2 rounds of shooty at my berserkers while they chased him around, possibly more if the zoa had killed my transport.

    also he decided that next time his Fex will be shooty, it did not get involved till after he lost.

    if his reserve roll had allowed him to come in on other side of table he could have seriously contended my control point.

    Plague marines are very tough to kill and only genestealers want to be in close combat with berserkers
