41 Infantry, 10 Tanks

Game 1 was against a Infantry Heavy Black Templar army. First 3 turns went completely my way, took out almost every tank, and about half of his infantry. Last 3 turns went his way as he reached CC.

He finished the game w/ 1 Terminator (Out of a squad of 8), 1 Assault Marine (our of a squad of 10), His Chaplain, the Emperor's Champ, and an Immobile Land Raider. I lost all but one squad of Stormtroopers, 2 Chimeras and 1 Russ. Got a solid Victory.

2nd Game was against a Blood Raven Space Marine army, who's only anti tank was 4 Missile Launchers in squads, and 1 Lascannon armed Dread... Do I need to tell you how that ended? He only had 1 Librarian and an immobile Dread w/ no arms... Stupid melta guns couldn't roll over a 3 on the pen table...

Game 3 was against another Grenadier force, all infantry though except for a Hellhound and 3 Russes.

I just kept away 30" and pounded the crap out of him with Chimera fire and Battle Cannons. He ended the game with a single Russ left.

That was all, I walked home with 1st place, and a cool trophy the shop owner made. Had a good time, and reestablished the Guard as a tourney army at my local game shop!

Sounds fun to have watched but you were lucky in the 1st game seeing you were in combat with a combat army.
