My thoughts:

This was my opponents second or third game of E:a so alot of tactical mistakes where made. I gave some pointers though. By putting his units to close together i could maximize the damage out of the Supa-stompas MW barrage a few times catching several formations under the blast templates.

I also managed to make a insane amount of armour rolls. The squats had aloooot of shooty units and fired everything on my Supa-stompas for 3 rounds by only managed 1 or 2 DC during all that time. It was really crazy.

It also really helped that i won the initiative all three turns.

The Supa-Stompas where very effective with their MW barrages and forced the squat player to hide his more brittle units.

The Great Gargant dominated the right flank and met no opposition there. My opponent should probably have concentrated on moving in on the T&H objectives on the left flank more. That would have forced me to split up more of my forces.

Fun to play against Squats but i felt kinda bad for my opponent with me making every god damn armour roll i rolled for 3 turns. That skewed the result somewhat.

Great report. I'd expect that squat list to struggle a lot against the gargants. Squats are slightly odd in that way. If they don't bring the best anti titan shooting unit in the game (a cyclops) they're actually pretty rubbish at taking out titans - the only real option is trying to use crossfire from all the battle cannons. They've got nothing that will do them any damage in assaults.

I Agree totally. I was actually very nervous about meeting the squat list first but soon realized that it wasn't that geared for anit-titan work.
