This looked like a bad game for me, i had a standard squad of kasrkin storm troopers and 2 squads of veterans, each packing 3 grenade launchers (all i had at the time) and other upgrades,
The BA had some elite which meant he could have a predator with flamestorm as an elite's choice or something.
The UM had a squad of upgraded marines and a rhino if i remember. so i was the only one without a vehicle (IG with no vehicle! obsurd!)
I go last (looks even worse) my stormtroopers infiltrated into the middle, BA turn one, he gets his predator and scorches all but one of my stormtroopers, tries to shoot at my vets, couldn't reach,
UM he couldn't see anyone, what he could see was unharmable with the weapons he had so his turn was over, (he sat in his cover in the corner)
My turn is where it gets good, My vets spread out, i keep my GL back to lay down suppresing fire.
Last kasrkin passes ld test, and daringly charges the rhino with krak grenade in hand!, shooting, 1 grenade launcher shoots side of predator i think, penetrates, boom! blown up! taking 3 marines around it aswell! fantastic!
Other GL shoots at some an apothecary, wounds him and he fails both saves (FNP), brilliant! then his bodyguard vet, goes for the potshot with 1 las shot at an elite of sorts,
it wounds, failed save... HAH! eat that! this was brilliant,
Everyone else shot about killing 1 or 2 more BA
My kasrkin charged the rhino, just in assault range, it didn't move, krak grenade penetrates and BOOM! Both tanks gone, this one not hurting my guy, but takes 4 UM with it!
This was probably the best gaming comeback in such a long time, my kasrkin was a martyr as the boltgun shots just caused to many wounds to save but he had to fire 6 at me to even get me to fail a save (hah!)
BA shoots around but does little damage.
other than that not much else happened, they decided i was the threat and teamed up it seemed, but by that point i killed more than they could get back,
So message of that day? don't under estimate the men of the imperial guard, they don't suck, in squads maybe but as individual assets, they are some of the best i have seen, that kasrkin now has a rhino plate on his base to commemorate his achievement, as does the veteran with lasgun have a BA helmet, and the GL vets have their own helmet/predator plate, fantastic game as so much happened!
The emporer protects? not this time!
why you decided to infiltrate in the middle? was it a good spot?
sorry, i just ignored this post for a while, yeah it seemed like it initially, had good cover but i made a stupid mistake of forgetting all BA vehicles are fast so it just drove 12" towards the men and completely buttraped them. I believe it was a sort of objective strongpoint imo and i had a good view on those UM in the corner,
