    I played a game on saturday at GW using an 8' by 4' table against a 1500 point guard army. We played using the short side (48 inches) and deployed 8 inches from our own repective table edge. He used camo netting + hiddin setup with his leman, leman demolisher, and basalisk. He had 3 heavy support platform with las, kroot mercenaries w/ shaper, and around 60 IG guardsmen. I started on the board with a rhino w/ stormtroopers, dreadnought, and inquisitor with retinue. My 2GK squad and GM w/ retinue were deepstriking and i also had lance strike. He had first turn.

    1st Turn - Him
    Movement - n/a
    Shooting - Basalisk indirect fire at inqusitor squad Result - scattered and no casualties
    Demolisher - at inquisitor squad Result - guardsmen w/ plasmagun, sage, and mystic died
    Assault - n/a

    1st Turn - Me
    Movement - Rhino w/ ST 12 inches to basalisk, dreadnought sideways to leman, inquisitor in woods
    Shooting - Dread lascannon and missle at leman front armour - failed to do anything
    Smoke launchers on rhino.
    Assault - n/a

    2nd Turn - Him
    Movement - n/a
    Shooting - Leman at rhino Result - Destroyed and 5 ST dies
    Demolisher at the rest of the squad - 1 meltagun ST survives
    Assault - n/a

    2nd Turn - Me
    Movement - Meltagun guy up towards basalisk, roll for reserves, only lance strike comes
    Dreadnought up
    Shooting - Dread at front armour basalisk w/ lascannon - failed to do anything
    Lance strike - destroys demolisher + 4 kroot
    Assault - n/a

    3rd Turn - Him
    Movement - Kroot foward
    Shooting - Basalisk at dread hull down - destroyed
    Leman at meltagun guy - killed
    Assault - n/a

    3rd Turn - Me
    Movement - Reserves: 8 GK unit w/ 2 incinerator and GM w/ retinue gets in. GM to HQ/basalisk
    GK to guardsmen on opposite end
    Shooting - GK took out 5 guardsmen (they have carapice armour <_< ) GM shot and killed 8 guardsmen
    Lance strike - failed
    Assault - n/a

    4th Turn - Him
    Movement - Kroot squad towards GM
    Shooting - HQ 8 plasma gun shots at GM and 4 Temries: 1 died
    Guardsmen at GK - 7 died from 8 plasma gun shots :blink:
    Assault-n/a

    4th Turn-Me
    Movement - GK w/ psycannon gets in, gets behind GK w/ incinteror, GK towards guardsmen
    Shooting - Took down 7 guardsmen
    Assault - GM killed 3 lascannon squads and couple guardsmen
    GK killed 9 guardsmen

    5th Turn-Him
    Movement - none
    Shooting - another 8 shots at unit w/ psycannon, killed 6 guys, he lost 1
    Assault - I won

    I forfeited because i only had GM and about 3 GK left, he had leman and basalisk and about 30 mor guardsmen and 10 kroot

    u might have still been able to win, i mean, if u stayed in cc then u wouldn&#39;t be able to get shot, and could&#39;ve moved from one squad to another, the kroot aren&#39;t that good, u could&#39;ve smacked them all down

    sadly that gm and the 3 termies could have taken on all the guardsmen and kroot. He is simply that good.
    You know what they say, if you dont like the weather in houston...go back to where you came from

    your first mistake was taking stormies, I know all you diehard stormie fanatics, but I seem to do fine without them. Holocaust is always good especially against the guard. A GK purgation squad would have wreaked havoc. You shouldn&#39;t have gone after his armor so quickly, ripping through hordes of guardsmen does a lot more psychological than physical damage to his army in this sense. He would probably get distracted after watching 30-40 guard die in one turn of CC. Orbital strike was a good choice, but you should have taken the inquisitor lord with rhino.
