Default Killing Marines - an experiment

Hopefully this will be of interest to some of you - one of my friends is currently undertaking an experiment in how long it takes to kill a chapter of marines. Starting with a full strength chapter (as per Codex Astartes) he is keeping track during each game he plays of which troopers die, which vehicles get wrecked, and not using those again. He's still in the first month, but if you want to follow along, the full story is at http://sonsofmanus.blogspot.com

I wonder if the experiment will ever end; he seems like a very good player, and losses are a rarity!

Yeah but you take casualties no matter if you win or lose.

True, but he seems very good at keeping his troops alive. It'll be interesting to follow.
