          I had a top of turn 2 multi-charge that effectively ended the game.

    It might have been a good idea for Danny to leave his CCS on the table to give Pask’s unit ‘Fire on My Target!’.

      Can’t issue orders to tanks, but, yeah, having them on the table to shoot the bikers would have been a good idea.

        Good to know. Another disadvantage Imperial armor has over the rank and file. I’m just sad whenever I see orders not going out. I view them as one of Astra Militarum’s strongest skills.

    Why didn’t the AM player use ignores cover orders against the ork bikestar?

    Great Job Reece! What do you think about swappin’ trukks for Guna Wagons? I always think they’re sooo paper thin.
    Did the Tankhammers work?

      Thanks! Yeah, brutal game for Danny, but, he didn’t know what to expect from the old Orks. And yes, the Tank Hammers worked quite well, actually!

      Both the model and book with rules were discontinued, I’m guessing they’re no longer legal… At least until FW updates Kestrel Novem.

        I somehow thought Gun Wagons were also in the dread mob list updated by FW in 2013… I guess I’ll have to switch to Big Trakks instead
