Planetstrike 4.5k battle (orks + IG + Iyandan eldar vs SW + SM + eldar)

Played my biggest 40k planet strike game last wk. It was a farewell game for our gaming grp member Sam (Iyandan player) who was leaving for Aus.

Mission: Desperate assault
Atk strategems: planet quake bomb
def strategems: void shield, machine spirit
objectives : 3 bastions

Defers: 1.5k*3 (orks,IG,Iyandan Eldar)
Atkers: 1.5k*3 (SW,SM,Eldar)

The game was stop at end of turn 3 as it was running late and to catch the last train and work the next day some had to leave.

Highlights of battle:

-Canis wipeout a squad of banshees with his thunderwolf cavalry.
-IG firing power took out the thunderwolf cavalry, leaving Canis alone.
-IG mass las guns took out another chunk of fenrisian wolves claiming objectives.
-Prince Yriel charge Canis wolfborn and killed him easily.

-ork warboss killed 4 thunderwolf cavalry + a wolflord on thunderwolf. warboss dying in the process.
-Stompa arrived in def turn 1 and killed 3 damned legionnaire + 2 fenrisian wolves, wep destroying 1 landspeeder and stunning another landspeeder.
-2 multi-melta landspeeders wreck the stompa in 1 turn rolling 3 sixes and 1 five.
-Ork nobz arrived with battlewagon and took out eldar bright lances firing base.
-16 shoota boyz mow down a squad of swooping hawks.

-Defenders' bastions was completely destroyed by eldar brightlances in turn2.
-IG bane wolves hose down some SM holding objectives.
-striking scorpians clean out a horde of fenrisian wolves claiming objectives.
-Wave serpent ramming an ironclad dreadnought and immobilzing it.
-Vulkan was hiding in atker's bastion the whole game hahaha. (i think)

Thats all I can remember, being the ork player I only could remember most of the orks battles.

End game (turn 3):
Defenders still hold 2 uncontested bastions at end of turn 3. VICTORY TO defenders.

Very fun game, I find it pretty epic, big battles does change the game alot. Tons of dice thrown around and it was very brutal, lots of models die in just a turn. Future big battle games need to be schedule earlier so it can be completed.
