So its seek and destroy, Double victory points, on a board that looks like concrete ville with some kinda urban oasis in the middle. Hmmm.

Well as im pretty sure everyone will know, arky has more faster units than ones self. :? So with the game being about smashing 7 bells out of each other. Im going to sit in the builing in the bottom right, now code name plasma hole. My troop choices arent going to be in there rhinos. I will hole up in there pulling units towards myself with lash and blasting them into lots of little pieces with my entire forces strength. The rhinos will be terrain, blocking the 'roads' between the terrain with there armoured coffin ness. Once combat ensues the raptors will leap over the other the combats to grab enemy units skirtting on the edges of the fight. with a combination of speed, Melta and death screamer assualt weapons and lash.

My preds will roll forwards and back to make sure there never stationary for the thunder hammer rushers. They will try and engage the enemy armoured units along with the melta attack bikers.

The terminators will deep strike into break up any naughty bikes that are out of any cover when they become available, then they will walk into the next available target toshow them there shiney new power weapons and overheating plasma weapons!

Doing this means i have my entire force against what arky throws at the plasma hole. I have supieor numbers, cover saves, ultra grit, plasma (lots), combat advantage in terrain and the plagues have blight grenades too. There is plenty of fists to go round for all the bikers too, which will make a mockarey of there increased toughness.

SONS OF OLYMPIA! SHOW THESE DOGS WHAT REAL ASTARTES LOOK LIKE!

*Everyone in Dans army shows off there blinging Chevrons*

This game generally speaking will come down to the opening one or two turns. Either I break into dans aptly named plasma hole or I get turned into burning slag just outside. On the upside I have several things going for me. For starters I’ve got first turn, which lets face it is rather nice. Taking advantage of this I don't need to deploy my bikes behind cover and turbo boosting turn one is a perfectly acceptable option giving me a significant degree of protection from the plasma hole for the first turn or so (depending how much fire is focused onto each bike unit)

The attack bikes will be like dwarves in a gold mine thanks to the wide array of armoured targets hanging around the map and should have little trouble in engaging the rhino's and predators with their multimeltas while the predators provide lethal ranged support.

Due to my superior movement I should therefore be able to bring a significant amount of my force to bear on a smaller part of Dan’s where a break through has occurred. Thanks to my skilled riders and frag grenades the cover will provide little protection from the inevitable lightning bike assault and its rather messy aftermath.

Brilliant tactics Arky,

against a standard set up applying all pressure in one place would have assured my vote for you.

But I'm afraid that Dan Jones has called your bluff on this one. I think you're going into a trap, and you'll do a lot of damage.. but it's a game of 6 turns, and that'll have a nasty effect on your small squad.

I reckon it'll be the Sons of Olympia who triumph over the Sons of Ordea.

Damn.. it's a fluffy battle with fluffy tactics too. Awesome.

Hahaha, something about the tactics here makes me think of pioneer settlers hitching their wagons in a circle to fend off Native Americans...

or...

Colonial British troops forming a square to fend off "the savages"...

Anyway, by clumping up dan has severely neuter the usefulness of "The Sons of Orden"'s mobility, as Arky will be unable to divide and conquer.

This one's gonna go very much in the favor of DanJones, FTW.

Because of the reasons listed above, I will be voting for Danjones in this one - I don't think Arky has the numbers or the shootiness to compete with Dan's list and plan.

Plasma hole or not I really think Arkeh has this game. The tipping factor for me was the fact that he will retain his saves against Dan's plasma weaponry after a turbo boost and once combat is reached he not only has increased T but he also has FC on his side in the case of the elite bikes. Arkehs Attack bikes and AT pred will make short work of the opposing tanks while the dakka preds will be able to lend their fire to help clear the marines.

Chaos - danjones

The only thing I see that gives Chaos the advantage is its numbers. The Bikers have one less Plasma Gun and 3 times as much Melta, so firepower isn't an advantage for Chaos.

I dare say that the armour both armies have brought are equal considering their foes, the Bikers with a possible edge.

The higher Toughness of Bikers coupled with their TB save will help them avoid casualties. This means that they will get to fire on the plasma pit, to soften it up, before getting the charge. The FCing Elite Bikers may translate into a goodly amount of Chaos that won't get to fight in combat.

However, with those Raptors and Terminators lying in wait, not to mention the DP, I don't think the Bikers will be able to take on all threats. Attrition will be their undoing.
