800 pts Imperial Guard vs Iyanden

What started off as a promising battle between the Imperial Guard of the Wolfe 3rd and the Iyanden xenos soon became a slaughter. If there is one thing I have learned, it is that Wraithguard are the bane of my existence. One shot from a wraithguard killed my Valkyrie, the Lucky Lady. They also destroyed my Chimera Marilyn, and set about smiting my infantry.
I inflicted heavy casualties vs the enemy infantry, thanks to my autocannons and heavy flamers, and just managed to draw the match by walking my sentinels out of combat in the last turn.

I have learned something from this battle: concentrate fire on the wraithguard first and foremost, and annihilate them quickly. This shouldnt be a problem, since i have now expanded my force and have a leman russ, two extra squads of infantry, and a heavy weapons platoon.

Form observing a battle between the Crimson Fists and the Iyanden, I gleaned the knowledge that I must destroy assault marines before they get into combat.

Thanks for reading. Imperial Guard are awesome.

how did you sentinels walk out of combat?
your a walker, not a vehicle. and thus locked in combat, until he is whiped out or you are?
