Setup:

Speed freaks deploy their forces all the length of the board due to the massive amount of models. The Fortress Mob (BTS) deploys a little to the right if the centre. Off board 4x4 Fighta Bombas and 1 Landa.

The AMTL set ups in the centre of the board, leaving the flanks unguarded. The Reavers are positioned so that their AA will cover all units.

OK, never got my ass beaten so badly before!

The first mistakke was not buying any sentinels. When facing a fast assaulting army like this you need the Scouts ZoC to stop the advance. I also had to few activations (8).

he second mistake was to start turn 1, i should have handed the initiative to the orks instead. Now i sufferd even more from my activation disadvantage.

The third and greatsest mistake was to move my BTS-Reaver up to the middle unprotected. I should had held him back and waited for the enemy to come for me.I was so keen to use the 12 MW2+ shots that i totally forgot the combined assault power that the orks had. Very, veeeeery stupid.

To be able to win this game i should have played very defensive and waited and baited my opponent to over-reaching with his forces. But i did the opposite.

Also, that much aircrafts are hard to deal with, scary stuff indeed.

I ddn't feel that the Plasma Destructor was too powerful in this game. Only managed to kill 6 LV:s with it.
Forge Knights feel kinda lame, they have to come up really close to be effective. I thin maybe 225 is good for them after all.

GB doesn't feel overpowered with it's 6 dhoots either.

Thanks for the report.

1000pts of Aircraft is scary in any list and with the Orks it can just be stupid. Coupled with taking AMTL I'm surprised that you even started the game, well you know what I mean.

The loss of your Reaver at the end of the first turn really hurt the army as well so I'm not surprised that the defeat was so large. Good food for thought though.

An ark mechanicus would have loved that army.... almost impossible to miss with the pie-plates, lots of light vehicles to make them even more effective and some gunforts for the pinpoints to pop.... 5-0 losses are always tough, hope you took some positives away from the game! :)

Ouch. I was expecting a bloodbath when I saw the lists, but I wasn't thinking it was going to be that one sided! As the others have said, those games are rough but take away the positives. :) Thanks for the report!

BTW, I didn't see that you mentioned it in the report, but when the PD reaver died the God Machines rule comes into effect and all AMTL formations in LOS get 1bm.

Yes, it was a nasty beating.

Damn, forgot about the god machine rule! Not that the Speed Freaks needed that help... :-)

Hehe, no they didn't. :)

I think that I'd have used the forge knights to screen your larger titans and initiate engagements. The Forge Knights are really best assaulting things rather than shooting them. With a laser burner on your reaver supporting I think you could have cracked a few of the formations.
