Yay, a win for the deathwatch! This was a very bloody battle where the IG troops got cut down in droves (as they should). This is not the optimal way of playing the list i think. There should be more usage of air assaults and planetfalls to make the deathwatch work properly.
Corvus spam didn't feel to good. Lost lots of units as always. I think the Acolytes where the heroes of this fight. Pretty good unit for 175p.
