Going first, deploying in top-left (NW) corner, Objective is placed directly North of NW forest, better position to shoot and defend. Rhino is placed in front, wrecked it serves as cover for Sisters, if exploded they can hide in the crater. Exorcists placed: NW of the building, N of the centre forest and in front of objective behind another rhino obscuring sight to itself but maintaining sight upon enemy deployment zone. Two formations (Immolator, Rhino, Canoness(Formation 1)/Seraphim (Formation 2)). Formation 1 deploys behind building obscuring sight to Exorcist, 2 behind the N-centre forest, obscure sight to that Exorcist. Single Canoness remains at objective to counter-attack if anything goes wrong.
Presuming first, Formations drive out from terrain using Smoke, terrain and Convoy-Formation to minimise losses. Exorcists move, maintain obscured and still fire (tall gun). Too many Vehicles: target saturation. Exorcist priority is: Assault, Devastators, Tactical, Command, Whirlwinds (unless they drive up/contest or shield Troops sitting on Objective), no cover in enemy deployment zone. Drive, disembark, Rending Bolters and Heavy Flamer will be able to massacre enemy troops. Rhino walls to ensure safety for disembarked Sisters. Formations should be able to punch through enemy, at least neutralise most of their army and ensure my objective is secure. If not, 3 Exorcists firing a turn will hurt, possibly kill all Troops. If Assault’s deep-strike, Canoness, Exorcists and second Rhino/Sister unit will easily be able to handle them as well as any enemy troops that are able to break through Formation.

Nothing’s funnier than marines outnumbering 11 point sisters. With only two objectives, my primary goal is not to allow my home objective to be contested. To that end, I’ll keep it as far into the corner as possible. If the exorcists hang back, I’ll ignore them and stay out of their range. If they’re deployed forward, they’re lascannon target number three (after transports and un-SOTM canonesses). My plan is to pile everything (combat-squadded) except the assault squad with the captain into the corner on my OBJ, and shoot down enemy transports as they close, then switch to troops with the plasma cannons ASAP, not switching with the lascannons until there are no more mobile transports with girls on board. One exception is that if a canoness exposes herself without SOTM, she gets lascannon(s) to the face. If/when a canoness makes it to my lines, she gets speedbumped with one fearless (within 12” of Ezekiel) power sword combat squad at a time. When faith runs out, she gets charged by Ezekiel’s squad. The jump captain comes on from reserves in the bottom left quadrant. Depending on what turn it is, they play VP-denial games while using what little cover is available to hide from the exorcists while approaching the enemy scoring unit(s) guarding the sisters’ objective with the intent of contesting/eliminating scoring. Last-ditch, the two whirlwinds could tank shock surviving enemy contesters out of 3” range of my OBJ, leaving just one combat squad of mine on it. Worst case: tie.
Vote closes on Thursday 31st of March at 1800 PM. Votes as usual must be in bold, and posted along with a reason. It doesn't have to be good mind you, just written down. Crap reasons will have no negative repercussions aside from your peers thinking you are an idiot.
If no tactics have been submitted, please assume average skill level for that player.
Nah sorry I call the Green Marines bluff. Who cares if you outnumber Sisters with Marines if their vehicles outnumber your anti-tank weapons...
4 Lascannons and a squad of Plasma Cannons vs 6 Transports. Games ends with Sisters claiming their own objective and contesting the Marines one (unless they manage to table them).

Yeah, sisters have this one. The dark angels will be sitting there, firing too few lascannons waiting to be rending boltered in the face while missiles rain down from above.
Through victory my chains are broken
Agreed, Sisters for the win
The DA have played WAY too defensive, everything sitting on the home objective isnt going to go well. Im also slightly worried by the assault squad playing "VP denial games" in an objective mission where it doesnt actually matter :/ The one assault squad coming on and going for the objective has good intentions, but is going to be shut down by the excorsists who have them as the prioritory target. In contrast the sisters have lots of speed, a hell of a lot of firepower to blow through the marines, and tank shocking if all else fails.
The marines cant stop the sisters, whilst the sisters have the marine offense locked up very nicley. Its a big win for the sisters.
Your friendly neighbourhood gargantuan creature
Sisters of Battle
They have this game in the bag, if you need reasons look at all those given previously.
-Lots of tanks on sister side, not a lot of AT on the other side.
-Rending bolter ownage
-Organ-powered missile death
Edit: Just re-read the tactics, exorcists target #3?!?!?! FFS, they will just goddamn table the DA army. (to be clear I don't actually think it would table him, was jk)

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
I want to say DA, i really did. Not enough challenging the sisters objective, there will be trouble on yours.
- I came close to putting down a draw, but in the end sisters have it.

Sisters are going to win this one. I'm a little confused why the marines don't have meltas in the tactical squads. As it stands, there's too little anti-tank, and the sisters will be able to simply maneuver around while firing away.
