Well after browbeating Corey into getting 1750 points of Marines together out of my bits box, we headed up to Empire to game. We were both a little under the weather as Corey had hung out and help me deal with a very sick little boy the night before.
First game - Take and Hold Spearhead. Corey was totally handicapped on this mission. Only 1 unit is mounted. It was a bloodbath of course and I learned a new respect for Vanguard Assault Marines. He was totally scared of my converted Baneblades until he blow one up 1st turn. He then engaged the Nobz and Warboss with his Vanguard squad....The game ended up as a tie as I could not kill all of the marines in his objective, and he got no where close to my objective.
2nd game - Dawn of War with objectives to secure. I won this one, as I was able to get my units into a position to hold objectives early, and Corey was left scrambling to get his troops out to objectives. Having a very fast army afforded me with the option of racing units over to contest objectives, even though I could not hold them.
On a side note, The wartraks performance was abyssmal. Those things cannot bring enough guns to bear to make them effective, and are too weak to be a front line unit, so will work more Deff Koptas into the list as the units I used yesterday were fantastic!
