    Hellblasters in cover and backed by character bubbles. Very effective, as always.

    EDIT: I also want to add that it was really great to see Matt consistently remembering to use pile-in and consolidate moves, using bait units to draw enemies out and spending CP's on strats. That kind of stuff will win you games, man. Kudos.

    I didn't go to the LVO but I'm still a reasonably OK-ish person.

    To be fair, that was half an accident.
    My thought process was I knew the scouts would get killed real fast and maybe get a few wounds in before they died. But I expected them to slow the berserkers down for a minute.
    The fact that it pulled them into range of all my guns was really just a happy accident.

    Still though, I think I did play that one really well. I'm trying to get better at really paying attention to what I want to accomplish each turn and what my intermediate goals are and stuff like that.
    Hopefully I won't lose too much of that over the break lol
    Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    Isn't that what breaks are for? Forgetting everything you learned in previous years?

    Then we'll put it down to it being a Festivus miracle!

    That's one of the functions of scouts. You can use them to make an anti deep-strike bubble, as a juicy target to lure a unit out of position, or keep them safe and further back as a potential source of mortal wounds.

    I loved that you lived in the stratagem section of the codex for the game. Even if you didn't know what the strats were called, you knew they were there and that they could help you. So you deserve credit there, too.

    Nah, man. Matt's a pro, now. I'm sure he has a pool of possible in-game scenarios that he's going to have a strict regimen of drilling himself on every day over the break.

    That's what I learned from Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle

    There was the one time I tried to use Veterans of the Long War, then remembered how great the Emperor is so I couldn't use it.

    Exactly! Besides why think about 40k when you can think about how to destroy extended family in Apples to Apples.
