8 : 8

BA have 2 immobilized dreadnoughts left and 1 razorback with epistolary and 5 assault marines.
SM have 1 squad of tac marines and 1 devastator squad and 1 biker and Kosarro khan.

End game thoughts
Was lucky to have a draw in this game. BA would be massacred again if not for Beardy One outflanking to my DC dreadnought. A mistake which nearly cost him this game. He was unlucky late game for not destroying the immobilized furioso which could win him the game.  If he had waited for me to reach his lines, like what Krom and Jaeroler did with their SW and IG in my previous games using the same list. It would be a turkey shoot for his ultra marines since my list dont have much long range and AT stuffs.

I want to play dark eldar so can be both shooty (eat lance DANTE!) and killy (Incubi + beasts of doom)

Another short-lived appearance by the Stormraven. We must think of a way to prolong it's survival man!

An exciting game till the end!

I'm thinking of a mass drop pod list LOL! You want to trade more Drop pods?

Put the storm raven in reserve or DS it lol. It seems to be a fire magnet, people see it and "panic mode on"!
