No kill again in turn 2 while Brad scores hold, hold more, and an engineer while Richard only scores hold and engineer. Its 4-3 in Brad’s favor at the end of round 2.

Brad wipes a unit of intercessors going for an objective with his snipers. In his answering volley Richard moves further up the board killing a single unit of scouts and taking a unit of assault cents down to three total models. Brad scores kill, hold, hold more, and engineer. Richard scores kill, hold, engineer, and two gangbusters. The score is 12-11 in Richard’s favor at the end of round 4.
Brad moves his surviving centurions up, shoots one squad out, charges another to kill it, and then wraps a model from a third squad. Richard spends 3cp to be able to snipe a character with an intercessor squad, but the Capt lives with a single wound remaining. He shoots more of Brad’s sniper scouts before charging all the Chaplain dreads into the surviving assault cents. Richard wipes the cents in combat, however, he fails to finish the smash captain or scout unit. The score is tied 17-17 at the end of 5.
