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
