non non non... I played with Settra's Ultramarines, not with my beloved Salamanders. Your purification by fire is yet to come, my friend.
Anyway, lets get to the point.
It was a very fun game, especially because Settra used the squats in a more dynamic way (Guild Bikers, for example).
It is important to say that, as I am a rookie player (this was my 4th game, 1st in a long time) I faced it more like a tutorial game.
My personal objectives were far away from the game objectives, I was really concentrated in understanding the game itself (now that I know a little better the armies) and especially the Air Assault and Fire Support mechanics.
So let's speak about the game in this perspective .
My thoughts about Settra's list:
The robots formations were for me the best unit he had.
These machines have the virtue of "seeming" not worth a serious attack (oh they are so few and they seem harmless), they are hard and finally, because I was occupied with other ennemy units they just controlled an important area all the way.
In my opinion, this list was very weak against Air Assault.
When my Thunderhawk deployed an assault formation + devastators, supported by a recently teleported Terminator squad, right in front of his units on overwatch (2 thunderfires, 1 or 2 warriors formations (not sure), the Warlord, and another unit I can't recall) it was a massacre.
Then came the drop-pods and the massacre could have been of epic proportions if I haven't decided to drop them in I'm-still-wondering-what-the-hell-was-I-thinking.
As I said, was just learning and testing. It was a great game, had lots of fun, and Settra had his deserved victory, but I must say that this listing with a more experienced player than I am would certainly be in a lot of trouble facing the Air Assault.
