Post 40k Second Edition Battle Report: Squats vs. Space Marines
Had a fun second edition game today, as I took out my squats (and three space minotaurs I counted as ogryn allies) against my friend's space marines.

A modestly-sized 750 point game.

We both drew engage and destroy . . . Not a good situation given our relative possible number of VPs.

The marines won, but it was a fun game as always.

Some pictures below, and full report over here: http://forum.oldhammer.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=10185

Yeah, nice battle !

You where courageous (maybe too ?) to let your squat on free terrain, far from any protection in the beginning of your game. Squats are not a people aiming for a good charge in hand to hand combat. They are better a firing army, keeping its good cover to aim at targets.

But well, it was a nice try and SM did not do anything very strategical but keeping in place where they where winning. At least, you moved and make your choices on where to fight.

Definitely too courageous! Reckless is the better word, I'm sure.

Our high WS can be difficult to bring to bear.
