The board was heavy with Terran, 15 pieces. Played on an industrial ice world where the imperials dug too deep in their hunt for resources and uncovered a sleeping Tombworld.

Turn 1:
Pylon 1, Pylon 2, Maniple 1. Maniple 2, Deceiver and Warbarque all teleport onto the battle field, only one BM on the on the C'tan form the teleport.
Astartes win the Initiative.
SW: Reaver activates and does a move a fire on Pylon 1, pylon 1 takes 1DC and breaks.
SW retain: Double and fire Long fangs targeting the Deciever. takes one BM
N: Warbarque doubles and fires at SC Great company killing one, 2BM

SW: Match great company two to Necron forward objective. 
N: Assault with Warriors 1 (BTS) on Great company two with support from Monolith Maniple 2. Atrocious rolling on my part only 3 hits including supporting fire (22 dice), against 10 hits from 11 dice in the great company. fail 7 armour saves against the 2 infantry casualties on the wolves. BTS wiped out..... Great!
SW out of activations
N: Deciever doubles and fires at the Reaver, 1 BM,

End of turn, fliers fly off unhurt (no AA left)
