|He quickly counter-attacks with two Tac Squads, destroying my Heralds. Here I'm screening my drop-zone with Plaguebearers. The Horrors went to ground - I need that Icon so I can drop my Fiends.|
|He's lining up against me. That Horror was a hero... the Furioso didn't move as far as he could have toward my drop-zone.|
|He destroys the Plaguebearers. He also finishes off one of the DP's. I think he's feeling pretty comfortable... but that's because he's been getting his assaults off. I knew it would be a different story if I could launch it first...|
|...and that's how that story goes. Two full-sized Fiends and a DP? It's safe to say Kris wasn't expecting that.|
|I move one unit of Fiends toward the edge - remember, that's Kris' deployment zone - while the other unit assaults the Land Raider and the immobilized Rhino. I want to make sure it can't shoot if the game goes on.|
...but that's that darn Captain Hindsight talking, isn't it? It's much easier to judge a game after it's been played. All in all, Kris came very close to putting away my chances early, and only sacking a good chunk of my army slowed him up long enough to allow me to seize the initiative away from him.
