The battle was between me and my friend who was playing Dark Angels. We rolled for the battle and got cleanse. We set up terrain, mostly small hills with three sets of trees, 1 in my deployment zone and one just outside with the last set in my opponents side but off to the side. We rolled for deployment and I won, making my opponent deploy first.
Devastator squad (10) w/4 ML on a hill, with a 6 man squad next to the hill (edge of map) with a plasma gun and cannon. 5 Scouts at other end, 3 with sniper rifles and one with a heavy bolter. A land speeder behind the trees. An assault squad (5) with a vet sgt w/pw, bp and the squad had melta bombs. A chaplain next to them with a jetpack, articier armor, bolt pistol and melta bombs. 3 bikes were put at the foot of the hill with the devestators, they had 2 flamers.
Leman russ behind a hill overlooking the center of the map. Basilisk behind trees, touching end of map. ML and LC squad in trees infront of Basilisk. Another ML squad w/pg was next to the Leman Russ touching side map edge. 2 LC squads on a hill towards the eastern side. RR squad ( with hunting lances and a vet sgt with HI, behind hills outside of my deployment. 2 command squads infront of 2 LC squads, with my command squad with iron discipline behind them. Special weapons squad in reserve (drop troops) with a demo charge.
Then some SM scouts infiltrate about 6 inches behind the tree line that my rough riders are behind.
1 Turn - IG
2 platoon command squads go forward 3.5 inches behind each other. Roughriders go into the forest infront of them. Basilisk hits the devestator squad killing 4. Leman Russ hits assault squad killing 2. Lascannons and ML's kill 2 bikers.
1 Turn - DA
Devastators and squad next to it move forward (trying to get under 36"). Bike, assault squad and chaplain move forward towards platoon command. Land speeder moves into position to shoot RR. LS kills 3 RR, and combined shooting kills 3 from the 2 platoon command squads. Assault and chaplain charge and annihilate the first command squad and attempt to advance but only get 1" (for 3 assault marines) and 3" for Chaplain and thus fail.RR and LC squad in trees run away to map edge.
2 Turn IG
RR rally and move towards chaplain. Lascannon squad rallies (both were using leadership from iron discipline from Command) and moves towards the back of LR. LR can only see assault squad and shoots but 3 inches right... right onto the Chaplain. It kills the chaplain (rolled a 1 ) and 2 IG men. Basilisk fires at Scouts but scatters backwards and hits Land Speeder and immobilizes it. Everyone else fires at scouts who infiltarted and brings them down to 3. Lone JO and RR assault the assault squad. Vet Sgt kills 2 SM including there vet Sgt and the rest kills the lone SM. They consolidate 5" towards remaining 3 scouts.
2 Turn DA
Scouts move towards RR. Devestators shoot at LC squad by hill and kill one. PC squad shoots at squad beside LR and kills one with a bolter (PC hit but rolled a 1 to wound). Scouts kill 2 more IG in the woods. Scouts(infiltarte) shoot RR, killing one and assault. They kill the remaining RR except the Vet Sgt w/HI who has no wounds and kills one in return. They both stay in cc.
3 Turn IG
SW squad comes in and deepstrikes 4 inches from scout squad. The moment of truth appears and hits the center scout covering all 5 with the demo charge. Nothing remained afterwards. More shots were taken at the PC squad and brought it down to two. Scouts cause two wounds but Vet Sgt kills both.
DA player concedes
I only ended up losing 21 models out of 83 and the two quadrants in my deployment zone plus the one in my opponets right were occupied by me and he only had 8-10 Marines left. It was a slaughter, much different from our last game when he got first turn and I barely won at the end of the 6th turn. It was a good showing of how much firepower can be brought down on small powerful armies by my Guard.

Nice nice, i also play IG and just lost a Take and hold to Blood Angels, but im a newbie so its ok.
I just need to learn how to play my army correctly.
Today i'll try and smash 2k points of Tyranid, it'll be tough!
Good Luck MSK!
Remember -- Shoot the fastest units first, then the biggest. I always get wasted by my buddies stupid gaunts cause they are so fast across the table. Watch out for Biovores too. Those acid mines will tear up a Close Order Drill squad in a hurry.
Can you tell I dispise the Tyranid horde? For the Emperor!!!
