Thanks for the report. It is similar to several games that Evil & Chaos and I have had over the past months. You can get so far with trying to stop the gargants, but unless you have lots of TK it is difficult to beat them.

Yes, another points win on turn 4 to the Gargants. This is what happens most of the time. The great Gargant is awesome both on it's own and as fire support.
I think you need to place your objectives far away from the Gargant objectives and march small formations close to the Gargants to slow them down. Yes, you're sacrificing alot of units this way but it can help slowing the big guys down.

Against that kind of list i think there's a lot to be said for basically picking on the smaller stuff and avoiding the great gargant as much as possible. Drawing constantly is a major theme for most titan based lists though i've found...
