    The stunned Vulture cannot turn and should have moved 18″ straight forward, zooming flyers stunned/immobile results in the BRB

        Vultures have inherent “armored cockpits,” so any stunned result was actually a shaken.

    Couple of tips from a veteran marine player to Raw Dogger:

    -get them centurions a ride! Grav centurions need a ride to be effective (or GOI), stick them in a Land Raider and get them in range by turn 1 (specially with Prescience), they should have been removing units every turn.

    -if you’re expecting flyers, keep the Mortis Contemptor in the back and protect your TFC from incoming aircraft (and enjoy the boosted cover save), once the aerial threats are removed they can move forward and support your assault.

    -don’t use pods at all unless you’re going for a single suicide pod (IMO), rhinos would have benefited you better in this build

    Always fun to watch your batreps; I wish Raw Dogger had hotter dices! He usually plays similar lists as I and I’m always rooting for him (but sadly I don’t see him win often lol)

    kind of a unsung horrible moment in that game was the pod scattering 10 inches towards the star.. that pod and it’s unit in cover over on that objective would be a lot of trouble for reece but they just had to rawdog it >_<

      Totally, that was a terrible turn of luck for Jason. Plus, killing the T-Fire on the first shot was ridiculous, taking that out was critical.

    @Raw Dogger: man, I understand your preference for the Kheres A.cannons on the contemptors. They look cool, they’re new and different, they put out a bunch of shots.

    But seriously, they’ve got to go.

    Stick some autocannons on those two bad boys, and make sure that you DO NOT MOVE the turn before your opponent’s flyers come in. a pair of intercepting platforms equipped with two twin-linked autocannons and a cyclone missile launchers would have had a heck of an impact this game, not to mention that you’d be able to start firing right from round one.

      I agree, and the las cannons too, are boss.

    Nice battle report. That chapter master absorbed a ton of fire, surprisingly un-rawdog-ish

    even though the tacticals scattered 10 inches, they could have gotten out the other side of the pod and then run to the other side of the building out of line of sight of the star. also, totally agree about the kheres not being worth it in this list, auto canons or lascanons for sure.

      Yeah, that Tac squad would have been a big thorn in my side had it been on the other side of the wall.

      Agree! With the disembarking movement you’d be right next to the wall, only needing a 1-2 in your run move. You would have been behind the BLOS wall, and on the objective, making Reece having to decide to move the ogryns there, or ignore it.
      Keep it up Raw Dogger, you seem to be playing better every day.

    I am very sad to have seen such a small amount of attention on the Space Wolves. Not nearly as much as other releases.

    I thought Contemptor Dreadnoughts were fleet

    I’m pretty sure regular contemptors are fleet but these ones are mortis pattern contemptors so.. I think not

    How did Reece reserve so many units. Did he get the outflank warlord trait?

    Techpriest with servo arm is only S6 iirc, but you can give him meltabombs, which is what I usually do.

    Hey Reece I asked this before, but I don’t think you responded. In Azrael’s rules it states he has to be warlord if he’s taken. So in 7th wouldn’t he have to be in the primary detachment?

    Azrael only has to be the Warlord of a Dark Angels CAD. As an ally, the stipulation is voided.
