DG: 0 obj BT: 1 obj

i roll another 1 and the game ends!!! D:<>

curses…i would have won game 2 and 3 if the game could have gone on for another turn
i basically rolled under odds towards the end of both games and couldnt kill the horrors in CC and couldnt dislodge the venerable dread despite a rain of melta fire.

Up against Blood Templars

my mistakes:

1) forgetting to cast warptime about 40% of the time, which got the DPs stuck in CC for too long and couldnt contest other objectives, charge other units
2) playing as if the game would have gone past turn 5 so didnt manage my army’s movement accordingly and was caught flat footed when the games ended early
3) not protecting my objectives well enough. the last game i let the BT rhino contest my objective where if i drove it up a bit more the rhino would not have been able to get close enough to my objective

I had a great time despite my mistakes, a great learning experience!
