I teleported the Terminators between the Pathfinders and the Blitz, won strategy and dropped turn 1. My barrage didn't do much, maybe destroying a single Piranha? The drops weren't great either, I managed to break a scout skimmer formation but everything else missed. My scatter rolls were hilariously short, except for the SC's Deathwind which took it out of range of everything.

I retained with a Veteran formation and engaged the Firewarrior BTS, the Marines wiped it out for the loss of two infantry stands.

Matt sustained on my BTS with the Hammerheads and destroyed all but n infantry stand and the SC. He then retained, I forget with what, and laid some BMs on the other veteran formation.

My Terminators engaged and the Pathfinders and wiped them out and the last Veteran formation sustains on the Broadsides and managed to destroy two, breaking them thanks to the other BM from the Deathwind.

Other activations from the turn include Barricuda taking out a Bike, Typhoons breaking the other scout skimmers, Crisis destroying two typhoons and the Firewarriors destroying another two Typhoons to break them. The six strong Crisis formation broke a Veteran formation, taking it down to an infantry and Blackstar, and the THawk picked up the Terminators.

Start of Turn 2

The Stealthsuits teleport into the building the Termiantors vacated and the Marines won strategy.

The full Veteran formation engaged the Stealthsuits, taking out three and breaking them. They then moved to support the bikes engaging the Crisis. One bike went down for 3 Crisis and they broke after two rounds.

The Hammerheads shot up the Scouts that doubled up last turn and took out an infantry stand. The Barracuda netted BTS, scoring 3 hits on the SC's formation which went unsaved.

The reduced Veteran formation failed and regrouped while the Firewarriors doubled and took out an infantry stand in the other Veteran formation.

The Land Speeder managed to smoke a Devilfish which paved the way for the THawk to land without taking fire. It engaged the 4 strong Crisis with the Terminators inside it and the Tau were wiped out for no Marine losses.

Start of Turn 3

The Scouts engaged the Hammerheads and wipe them out while the Veterans retain and break the Firewarriors.

Stealhsuits make it to the Marine side of the board and lots of failed aircraft activations happen across both armies.
