Having had by bottom comprehensively slapped in my first four games I finally managed a victory in a closely fought battle against Imperial Guard.
My opponent fielded a rather attractive Imperial Guard Army. Those Rough Riders carry a mean punch in their first attack and wiped out my Interceptors. The rocket tank on the far left wrecked havoc on my back field.
Anyway, a good tightly fought game, will try to write up a proper report at some point.
The, for me, most peculiar part of the game was a duel between my Vindicare (super sniper - using an Infinity model) and a Leman Russ tank.
Vindicares are designed for tank killing. Almost impossible not to hit the target with a Vindicare. BS8 so just need a 2+, and if that fails a 4+. Once the target has been hit armour benetration is with 4D6 - easy! Yeah, there is something wrong with my dice! Round 1: hit, no armour penetration; Round 2: hit, no armour penetration; finally on Round 3 manage to penetrate the front armour of the Leman Russ and is rewarded with a nice big explosion. Still, I am starting to feel there is something wrong with my dice...
