I got a game in today but we only played 3 turns before I had to leave. My opponent, who was playing 1ksons, was ahead by 3 points at that time. I took To The Last as a secondary objective but I was about to loose Moreen Vahl with only 2 wounds left and a good 12" separating her from the Sacrosants.
The 5+ auto deny was a life saver. Of course playing against thousand sons I had plenty of opportunities to deny. He could still cast more psychic powers than I had units in range to deny with.
Moreen and 2 mortifiers took on a terminator squad in melee and put them down. Was a nice victory. My opponent wasn't designed for melee so in the first two turns of shooting he reall put the hurt on my infantry. To the tune of 2 BSS, my Dominions, Rets and Repentia. Shot to hell and 3 girls lost to running for the hills.
I had a unit of 5 arcos that charged his Defiler. He had not really worried about the slogging across the board until I started rolling attacks. It took two turns of fighting but the arco's took him down to a single wound. Celestine finished it of for the kill. Unfortunately, of the 5 arcos, 3 were lost to rolling 6's after using the trigger word. They did well and being a cheap, small, non-obsec unit they were not seen as a threat until it was too late. I think they are useful like that. Just run them across the board with the forward troops; if they do get shot up first it is just taking fire off my special weapons.
The game ended before just Celestine could get into it with a unit of Rubrics. She was in a good spot. Stern, however, was piddeling around in my back field and not really in a position to do much damage. She used her "smite" once and never got near close combat. My fault for where I placed her coming in on turn 2. I would have been better off just placing her on the table at the start of the game.
As mentioned earlier, my Sacrosants never made it into combat. They are slower than Morveen and when she made her charge, the sacrosants were left far behind.
I didn't take notes and it was not a full game so it's not much of a battle report, but there we are. I called it a minor loss but my opponent didn't think that would be the case once all my melee units really got into play but I don't think I could have made up the points difference regardless.
