The Dreadnought, Terminator squad and Speeder all fire upon the Combat squad containing Cassius on the first objective. All that is left is Cassius on one wound. Tactical squads out of range so just ran.
The Captain assaults Cassius. The Captain lands two wounds but he saves them both with no reply. Combat is drawn.

After 4 Krak missiles from the Typhoon and the Cyclone Terminator the Tornado's both exploded. Nothing else shot dreadnought engages Cassius with the Captain.
The dread and Captain both wounded Cassius but didn't kill him, he fails to reply. (my dice don't like assault!)
Defender turn 2.

Finally Cassius goes down to a shot from the Captain's Relic blade.
With the assault won. The Attacker obtains the first objective at a vital time.
Attacker turn 3.
Wave attack/Shattered.. Typhoon and Terminators arrive and deploy in zone 2.
The Terminator squad reappears on the right flank this time headed straight for the next objective. Two combat squads stand in there way. The Lascannon team and the melta team. The Typhoon and Captain also advance on the combat squads. Tactical Squads just keep moving forwards providing cover. The dreadnought stays on the left and piles in to the remaining combat squad that side.
The dreadnought kills 3 out of the 5 combat squad with rending shots, the speeder and terminators kill 4 out of the 5 Melta team with missiles and bolter fire.
Dreadnought charges in. Kills one and is now locked.
Defender turn 3.
The remaining Sgt. of the team moves towards the Captain with his Combi-melta. The other combat squad and predators don't move.
Predator fire at the terminators killing 2 the Lascannon team immobilised the Typhoon and the Combi-melta melted the Captain.
Dreadnought wins combat. Moves forward.
Attacker turn 4.
Wave attack/shattered. Add Typhoon to reserves. Captain re-emerges. All gunning for the next objective and only 6 men in their way!!
The tactical squad and dreadnought fires on the lone Sgt. The terminators fire on the Lascannon team. The squad loses one guy and the Sgt. is rended.
Defender turn 4.
The Lascannon kills the Captain. The 3 predators only manage to shake the dreadnought.
Attacker turn 5.
Wave attack/Shattered. Captain and Typhoon back in.
Movement phase all aimed for the next objective. 4 men guard the way this time.
After 34 bolter shots, 6 Krak missiles 1 guy holds the objective. Nothing in assault range.
The attacker can't buy another turn.
Defender turn 5.
The 3 Predators all fail to hurt the Dreadnought and the last remaining guy with the Lascannon missed.
True the game ends.
So all in all its a very good game. Only one question really came up. If you have a unit on an objective in his control zone and the unit is wiped out but no one around do you keep that zone. I think it says you do. Other than that its starts of very well for the defender you just keep pummelling away, but when key units slowly get whittled down it takes it toll.
This is damn good fun being the attacker you feel like an ig commander just throwing troops in to get what you want. I loved it.
Z6, Z5 and Z4 are the defenders at the end. No scoring units near any of those objectives other than 4. So I believe they are controlled by the defender. Because the Second objective was captured Z3 became no man's land. So the the attacker has Z1 and Z2 meaning the defended wins by 1. Amazingly.
Just for a laugh. Even though the points were not even. The defenders did 810pts of damage to a 945pt list. The defender were left with 3 predator tanks and 1 man. Painful mission.
So when we play the big game Saturday. Me and Andy will start well then we get overrun I kinda look forward to it. Ha-ha I should be a games tester. Oh Kev another thing 4 turns may kill of a game if the attacker doesn't get there.

Their arrogance is matched only by their firepower
|Sounds like it was quite a close run test game, am looking forward to it next week, the mission should really reflect our armies, the tyranids an unrelenting tide against the imperial guard and astartes refusing to give an inch of ground|

The Master of Fuzz
Even though I was playing solo, there were points in the test that I thought oh god here they come again. I do defence well so it suited me. It may be why the attacker didn't win the test. Also I was using Vanilla Marines. So sides were even and I knew every weaon to use at the right time. The shifting tides rule was awesome. Range becomes less of an issue when the atacker gets more ground.
I look forward to it. My list is very much defence line. I'll post it up in a mo. Don't worry James I didn't spam Whirlwindwinds. Though am taking Cassius hes a tough old boot who deosn't like nids.
