    Overall, I think JR lost because he didn't focus down my units to kill them. I had one squad of 3 guardsman which were holding an objective and scored me 10 points. If he had thrown a couple bolters their way, that would cost me 10 points and gain him 3. I had one custodian jetbike left. I don't know their value offhand, but if he had killed that last one, that would be a bunch of points. I know it's tempting to want to throw everything you can at the custodian guard as soon as you can, but I think he should have wiped those straggling units off first.

    We both had a couple of really bad rolls which could have swayed things if they had gone better.

    I think JR lost a big chunk of victory potential when we realized he couldn't give his aspiring sorcerers warp time. He had clearly planned that out ahead of time and when that came crashing down he missed a change to burn up my janitors with some warp flames. That certainly would have done a big chunk of damage to them.

    His usage of Death Hex was good. The Culexus Assassin was underwhelming, but she was too far gone from the battle for most of the fight. I don't know why I assume all imperium assassins are female.
    Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    Yep, I think you nailed it there. A focus on killing that last jetbiker (who are worth 15 VP, I think?) and those remnant guardsmen would have been a big swing.

    Your assassin was way out of place. I think you would have been better served having her (let's keep calling her a female, because why not? ) be Valoris' shadow. I can't recall anything she did in the battle at all; so much so that I asked during the stream if you'd forgotten her.

    If JR had have been able to get his Warpflamer dudes closer to guardsmen, that would have made a big difference, too. I'd like to hear his thoughts, but it looked to me like he had a bit of a go at the Custard and then got all...

    ...fixated with them and pulled all his army into the middle, and let you hold the outer objectives uncontested.

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