First activation to the Terrans! Gunship powered forward calling down artillery killing a light and damaging a lev, shots cause a damage to a core heavy

The core heavies activated in retaliation, missing every single designator roll (lol) and the arti missed spectacularly ofc, but they did proceed to obliterate a squad of heimdals ( for those of you that love the stats 16 shots and 14 shots causing a total of 7 hull points shielded down to 4 but then failed command !)

TURN 2 !

Unfortunately for the poor sheriff gunship the relth get the first activation, the sheriff gets cqb' to death, then his guardsmen friend gets shot to pieces not a good start for the hawker helices, these bugs are very well equipped to kill other air units, 21pp1 aa makes short work of dr6(4 in the rear good old dog fighter)

The lev goes next for the spiders rolling a whopping 9 6's in the first roll placed against 2 poor heimdals... For a grand total of 34 hits 14 above the dice actually rolled. For you math heads placed shots on a normal target have around a .9 success rate per dice which means he should have scored 18 successes... Nearly double ... This happened quite a lot during the game he was rolling line the proverbial demon. Though not to take away from him his tactic was a solid one and it payed off :)

Last 2 terran activations place into the lev. And only score 1 measley damage. ... Pin point 3 twice on 2 strength 12 shots one hull point ..... *sigh* guess that's a major victory to the bugs then. Really hating that repair roll now ...
