++ Total: [59 PL, 994pts] ++

So the general plan here was that I was the gun line/objective holder/mob deletion and he was the heavy hammer hitting things. This sometimes went well and sometimes went really badly.

In our first and third games it went really well and 2 Maleceptors and a Razorback died in a single combat phase in game 1 and Magnus died, also in a single combat phase, in Game 3. Game 2 it whiffed on Yvraine and an Eldar Wraithknight and that went downhill for us really fast. I am a huge fan of the Blood Angels now though. Amazing in combat.

Pictures are attached of some various nifty moments throughout the day.

Also, here are some notes I made of Game 1 for a more blow by blow idea of how that game went:
Game 1 notes

Tyranids and Black Templars T1, Terminators Deep Strike us and engage, kill Salamanders Razorback, piling into Vulkan and 2 Lieutenants; shooting happens one Dreadnought is destroyed and not much else is done

Us T1, Death Company, Lemartes, Dante all come in and wipe out 2 Maleceptors, a Templars RB; Salamanders engage with Terminators, while Vulkan and the remaining LT fall back

T2, entire Death Company, Lemartes, and Dante are wiped out; battle continues with Terminators and Salamanders step forward to attempt to take midfield objective as do the

T3, Salamanders Gunship is destroyed by Celestine while fighting continues over the midfield objective, Salamanders end up in control of it for 2 points at end of the game, Linebreaker and 1 objective point scored for TyraTemplars, tie broken by points scored
