Summary
 
 
Thanks for the game Jim…
 
Now If only I had place the Orbital bombardment, on that part of the deployment zone, were you deployed your forces. Who knows, want might have happen. It looks like I may have hit 7 or 8 formations roughly..Ouch. That would have made the game easier for me, as it was I need to hold back and try and get Jim to break his castle up..He would had to do it anyways at some point, to start taking ground.. Then I could pick my places to assault. I had some luck with shinning spears(BTS), since Jim failed a few armours saves..So won that, which help the cause…If it had gone to turn 4, it would still have been close, although tough for me…and Jim may have gotten in front by a nose..Never once did I feel like, I was out of the game..
 
 
Oh and thanks Jim for getting so one mind on shooting AC and also thinking my Dev were Eldar.That camo work nicely, will need to make sure it’s standard issue when facing Eldar, when you are in charge…Smile with tongue out 
 
 
Apart from the cock up(from both of us,hey we are only human and not #$%^ Robots) on shooting the landing craft, when it had not land..It was bloody interesting game..and I look forward in facing Jim again in another tough interesting game..thanks mate.Open-mouthed smile
