Well.... Turn 1. i forgot i had a drop pod soooo Dread didnt show up. I deployed my 2 tac squads and my Dev squad in cover. spread out across the map. i blew off the arm of the PC Dread, killed a few termies, destroyed the Assault cannon on the Raider, and killed a few more Termies. My oppenent then zipped up with his Land Raider dropping off Belial and his squad and chaplain. his Vindicators missed horribly, and his Termies faired no better with his missle pods, his 1 dread killed a few marines as Did his Raider. in the Assualt Fase, Belial and his friends ate Tac squad 1. Which..... i dont mind haha.
Turn 2. Dread shows up in DP. Storm Raven Shows up with Mephiston and Blender Dread, and Assualt Marines show up. Of course i drop off my Storm raven directly behind him, deploying mephiston/Blender behind 2 of his Termie squads my Assualt marines appear behind one of his Vindicators with MeltaGuns poised. haha. Shooting.. Dread 1, and 2 by storm Raven... Gone. Vindicator 1... gone taking 1 unlucky Termie with Storm shield 2 inches too close to the exploding vehichle. More Termies fall to Plasma Cannons from Dread and Devs, More Termies fall to melta gun and Hvy Flamer from my blender. aaand... assualting. Mephiston Charges in to a squad and Blender to other. Poof gone. Mephiston Hides in consolidation from the other Vindy as does Blender. My opponent now missing Big fire power procedes to run to kill tac squad 2 and get away from the Raven, Meph, Blender, and A Marines. He Shoots up tac numba 2... 2 men die. he Shoots the Dread.. nothing. he shoots his Vindy at my A Marines at it scatters to hit 7... HOORAY FOR COVER SAVES!! only 3 die. Assualting me he rapes up my PC Dread.
Turn 3. Flying Mephy forwards i get close to one of his remaining Termie squads (No Belial yet.) Marines zoom Forwards to same location. Blender runs to remaining Vindy. I Blow off his Cannon on his vindy, i kill 1 Termy with Mephistons Plasma, and i kill 1 with the melta gun. my plasma Cannons and ML's shoot his Belial Squad killing 2. My Assualt phase went like this. Mephy and A marines Kill a few of his Termies =( . Blender Immobilizes his Vindy that has no Gun. hahaha. aaand thats it. He Moves his belial squad to my DP which is seperating him from my Tac squad (Devs are in a building on the other side of the map haha.) he moves his Raider to block LOS of my Tac and to get a better shot haha. he kills 2 marines in shooting at my tac squad. Fails in his Assualt on my DP and I only kill 1 more Termie with Mephy and Marines loosing a few Marines that Turn.
Turn 4.My Libby and Termies finally show up and my Stinkin Baal shows up to do nothing on his Raider. more Plasma Goodness eating up 2 more of Belials squad. i run blender down. (only to return to insult his immobilized Tank haha) i fail to kill his Raider with my las cannon. in the assualt i dont do anything O_o except lose a few marines... His raider finishes off tac 1 He runs Belial in with his little sqaud to assualt Mephy... Mephy kills 2.
Turn 5. FINALLY my other librarian Charges in and STR 10 his behind with 3 pens leading to 3 wrecks woot woot. Mephy and his squad Pop off Belial and his friends and finish off his last Termy in the other squad. the end haha. it was fun.
MVP of it all... EVERYONE! hahaha. my opponents MVP would have to be either Belial and his group.

this post should go in the battle report section. and you seem to laugh a lot during your post, did i miss a joke or something?
Never give up. Never give up. HIT, HIT, HIT, HIT!
OOPS! my bad. and yea. you did miss alot of giggles. the guy i was playing was very fun and made some pretty hilarious comments. as i was writing this down i was remembering the guys Comments, and yes, they were funny. but i'll submit this to the proper area. thanks for pointing that out eh?
I assume that I read this correctly, and that you deep-strike(deep-struck? deep-striked? past-tense?) on turn 2 with your Stormraven, then deployed Mephiston and your Furioso, and proceeded to assault in the same turn. If that is correct, you should know that the rules for assault vehicle state that a unit disembarking from the vehicle can launch an assault that same turn providing that the vehicle did not deep strike that same turn. So, something to keep in mind for future games. We all make mistakes, and I am certainly one who has made my share. Keep up the reports, they're fun to read, and keep your sense of humor, it makes games more fun.

It was a special mission set up the my reserves that were skimmers could come on from my opponents side. we rolled off to see who was the "Tau" and if we got that our skimmers we essentially snickrots O_o thats why they were able to come on and deploy, bail out and assault. =) Thanks for the reply and *winks* good eye on what would normally be the rule. There was no deep striking, just coming on from my opponents table edge.
