    Ummm, one thing...

    Are you playing several detatchments?
    Cause I personally think that 9 heavy support choices are a bit much for the standard battle list...

    But other than that.... damn he's gonna get it raining on him!!

    BA player: Brother Digi for the Glory of the Emperor (me)
    Nids player: A friend (actually Chaos and Eldar player)

    Luckily I won both the starting roll (with 11 to and deployment roll (with 9 to . While he set up his force behind those mountains and forests in the upper left corner, I deployed my shooty fluff as close to my assault units and as near to the edge as possible.

















    http://emblems.utopiatemple.com/pic23576.jpg

    for the deployment chart...


    Picture above: After deployment…

    BA turn 1:
    DC: dices gave: 8 DC marines in DC squad 1 (jump packs) and 7 in squad 2.
    Black rage: Unit 17 (5?), 15 (4?), 2 (6?) and 12 (3?) raged… Sigh…

    Movement: Assault squad and DC squad advances together with my dreads to protect the raged ones… DC (squad 2) in rhino advances as well to screen my vindicator.

    Shooting phase:
    Furiso dreadnought guns down one genestealer.
    Scout squads guns down 6 genestealers with sniper rifles and heavy bolters.
    Devastator squad 19 frags down 4 genestealers.
    Dante’s squad guns down 5 scything gaunts.
    Devastator squad 16 guns down 1 Zoanthrope.
    Predator 14 guns takes 1 wound from Old One Eye.
    Whirlwind blows 6 scything gaunts into pieces.
    Dreadnought 11 takes down 2 ripper swarms
    Assault phase:
    Charge or be charged… with that in mind, I charged… in order to tie them up for a several turns…

    Dante’s troop takes down another 7 scything gaunts.
    Furiso dreadnought takes down 1 genestealer.

    Casualties: 4 assault marines.


    Tyranids turn 1:
    Ouch… with most of my genestealers dead, I advanced with my entire swarm.

    Shooting phase:
    2 Zoanthropes blasts 5 marines into pieces with their blast weapon, while the third zoanthrope immobilizes a rhino.
    Both Hive tyrants fires at the devastator squad with 4 missile launchers and eradicates the entire unit.
    My biovores all shoots at squad 19 but it all scatters… Luckily, one bio acid mine scatters on top of a Whirlwind and makes it explode! (D6+3 for penetration and I roll a 11 followed by a 6 on the penetrating chart…)

    Assault phase:
    Tyrant 1 assaults his vindicator, causing 5 penetrations (3,3,4,5,5) and 1 glancing (6), causing some overkill.
    Tyrant 2 charges Corbulos squad and kills 6 marines.
    Warriors charges squad 7 and kills them all.
    Carnifex charges the rhino and kills it. (1 marine dies in the explosion)
    The red terror charges his devastator squad 18 and kills them all. (managed to get in 5 attacks and so made lunch of one)
    Old One Eye charged his dread and made it into a pile of dust.
    Scything gaunts charged his assault marines (moved into combat) and killed only 2.



    BA turn 2:
    Black rage: nothing raged this turn, and left my whirlwind able to gun down 14 gaunts! In an huge explosion.
    3 warriors died under the fire of my boltguns, while the rest of his genestealers died under the same circumstances. Tyrant squad 2 died under the lascannon shots from my predators, while my scouts killed 2 tyrant guards and caused 2 wounds on the other hive tyrant (squad 1), just allowing my squad 8 to gun him down.

    During my assault phase, Corbulo’s squad assaulted his gaunts tied to my Lemartes and so killed those bugs together with my DC squad 1.
    My librarian advanced to fight his Old One Eye, and managed to wound him 4 times with his force weapon. After passing 4 successful Ld tests, the well fed monster fell to the ground.
    Just 10? beside them, Dante’s squad managed to finish off 6 gaunts, while suffering 2 marines.


    Tyranids turn 2:
    Biovores launches 3 poison spore mines and kills 1 predator (16) under the ordnance template. (6 on the glancing table).
    Zoanthropes kills another predator (15) with its Warp blasts.

    Assault phase:
    Without much to do, I however killed off his Honour guard (including Dante) and my ripper swarms killed an entire scout squad as they overwhelmed them in front of the bushes. My carnifex assaulted his librarian squad, and got KILLED! (curse the force weapon&#33


    BA turn 3:
    What a lovely scene.

    Nothing rages this turn, except for my predator 17 which advances towards his fleshborer gaunts.

    During my shooting phase, my librarian squad takes down his ripper swarms, while my predator 17 guns down 4 gaunts. My remaining marines continues firing at his biggest threat (which was a group of Zoanthropes at this moment) and succeeds to massacre them. In my assault phase, everyone had nothing to do… and so was the turn over…


    Tyranids turn 3:
    Hmrrf… with only 3 biovores left, I gave up, and the day belonged to the Blood Angels…



    Lessons learned: Not enough terrains for the Nids, as most of his army was gunned down before they ever crossed the enemy lines.
    As for the Blood Angels, more assault troops could have helped (maybe some thunder hammer termies), or another librarian or two… =)


    Please notice that this is my first battle report, so it may suck a lot!
    Suggestions more than welcome…

    Sort of... 48" * 120" but we placed our troops VERY VERY close to each other...

    However.. the nids had a big advantage there..
