My Stormraven died on his turn 1, obviously, but I used the piece of 3+ cover in his deployment zone to camp the DCAs and Coteaz after they ate Vulkan, a Combat Squad, and 5 LC Terminators. By hiding my scoring units out of LoS until the last minute and keeping my fragile units alive by going to ground in several pieces of terrain that gave them a 3+, turning into a 2+, I was able to jump ahead on the KPs and Objectives and remain there. Luckily immobilizing 1 LR, destroying a 2nd, and wiping out his two TL LC Razorbacks early on, before T3, helped me a lot on the objective grabbing front. It all boiled down to Paul not having the Scoring units and mobility to win an objective match. The terrain we rolled up, with 2 pieces granting 3+ cover, meant my Henchmen and Paladins could literally sit there and eat all his Las Cannon shots and just shrug them off. I think had the terrain been just slightly different Paul would have had an easier time with this game. That means I now have a Massacre win to go with a Minor Loss and Massacre loss, still in sight of a Wild Card spot for the playoffs so here's to hoping I can win all of my other matches. I'll keep you posted.
