Apologies in advance for the picture quality, they aren't up to the usual standard.

Turn 1

Squats deploy their Expeditionary detachment who infiltrate the battlefield, gaining a charge move before the action begins.

They then win initiative and opt to allow the Chaos player to be the first to activate in the turn.

File comment: Before the battle begins, the Expeditionary detachment deploys close by to the stranded APC objective.

Note: There was an error here (4th picture). In a moment of madness I deployed a Leviathan on the right flank along with a Beserker unit. The Beserkers are just out of shot, hidden behind a hill, placed there to provide protection for two of the Goliath Mega-Cannon. Of course, the Beserkers come with the Land Train, so I later placed that model down. This is the reason that you will see the Leviathan described as a Land Train (because to all intents and purposes it is).

File comment: The Squats' Land Train enters the fray on the right flank, dropping off some Beserkers to provide protection for the Goliath Mega-Cannon. The Land Train has only one target - a Juggernaught hidden behind the ammo dump. Even with a little cover, there is no escape for the Jugger and it is quickly eliminated.
