I'm not going to do the full report, just the main points.
Set up with Spearhead, mission was Seize Ground w/ 4 objectives.
Because we did not realize that the first to set up got to go first we rolled off for first turn. He set up first, I got first turn.
T1: I blewup His Razorback, and Lascannon Pred in first shooting. his storm raven started in reserve. Killed 4/5 assult troops and 4 Tac guys (Most of the kills were from battle cannon shots that scattered away from the tanks I was shooting at. He had set his assult guys near the razor and his tac near the las pred.)
He blew up my plasma chimera killing 3 guys in the explosion
T2: I stunned his baal pred with some melta shots, Master of ord and all battle cannons did nothing, repositioned men, Plasma squad hunkered down in the crator
He missed with a missile shot, stormraven failed to show
T3: Finished off the Baal, Battle cannons killed all but 2 of the tac guys
He moved up his last assult guy who missed with melta gun and then failed to assult. Storm raven shows up and immoblizes the plasma LR
T4: Shot like crap, only nailed his last assult troop with 3 melta guns.
He also shoots like crap, moves his Storm Raven, and forgets to dump his troops, his wife thought this was really sad.
T5: Plasma squad scores 2 pen shots on the storm raven, both wrecked results, the damn thing lands infront of my immobile tank, one more tac guy dies. Decide to fire danger close at the black co, only kill 2 out of 5 with a full furn of shooting
He assults my plasma troops with the commissar, it does not end well for me, to the point of not even getting to strike back.
It does go to the top of turn 6, in which the final tac guy, the missile launcher gets nailed to the ground with heavy bolter fire, the black company gets killed by a combined attack from the LR that can see them and the Melta Squad. so other then the small detail of his wrecks becoming part of the landscape, I tabled him. He managed to kill one unit, its transport and the commie.
Me: 1/4 objectives held 8 kill points
Him: 0/4 objectives held 3 kill points Tabled
Result: Curb Stomp at Ramming Speed. IG Victory
Ok not that you have much to go on, but this seems to be a thing with me and him. The one time he has beaten me, with when I played orks and it came down to my warboss vs. his furioso dread with predictible results. I am not proud of this, but I kicked his tau army in its blue balls so much that he sold it off to buy the blood angels. Not that I want to let him win, but what advice can you give him other then 'buy new dice, and more assult marines'. He has a wife who wont let him go ape with the budget. I dont know what to say anymore other then sorry.
The IG are proof that good things come to us who wait. I've been Guard since 3rd ed. I been in the store and remember getting 5 boxes of men (when they came in 20 man boxes) 3 Commissars and praying that I might survive til turn 4. I've stuck it out, and you know what I have to say? WHO'S DYING NOW HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!
