    Tough one to call. It's shooty guard vs shooty guard. On one side, we have psyker battle squads and super shooty tanks. On the other side, we have 4 chimera squads, each with auto cannons and hunter killer missiles.

    I'm going to have to narrowly give the edge to Kevin Vanrooyen. The greater variety in his list, the shootier tanks, and the possible advantages that the psyker battle squad can bring, should outperform the 4 chimera squads. Going first doesn't hurt either.

    Still, it'd be a great match.

    I'm giving this to Kevin those hydras seem like the scariest units in the fight and with first turn he gets a chance to shut down some of the chimeras in the other list. It really is a close match though and if played out would probably come down to who rolled better on the vehicle damage chart.

    I think I'll vote for the first time. I'm going to vote kevin because I don't think kroxigor has quite enough AT to deal with kevins tanks. Also kevin going first will allow him to take out some of that AT as well.

    Interesting match-up. Regrettably, I'm going to have to put another nail in Kroxigor's coffin, as I think kevin vanrooyen's list has the edge here. It's not so much about the difference in the lists, as they have about the same amount of long range AT (at least mostly it seems that way to me) - but one of the big factors is kevin vanrooyen being allowed to go first, which will let him stun/shake/maybe even destroy one or two of the transports facing him, which I would guess will put Kroxigor on the back pedal pretty early on. With one or two of his Chimera's shaken/stunned during his first round, he'll have difficulty (I think) gaining back the momentum, as he'll not have access to parts of his biggest asset (the Hunter Killer Missiles) and he won't be able to use one or two of those Autocannons to help fight back as they'll be inside a transport (unable to fire), unloading from a transport, or perhaps pinned.

    It is worth saying though that Kroxigor's list is very solid (at least IMO) and if he went first, I probably wouldn't be able to choose a victor as it would help him compensate against kevin's slightly superior long-ranged AT. And on the table, this game would probably come down to sheer dumb luck (AP rolls and vehicle damage rolls) as well as clever use of cover and vehicle manuevering.
