Man of the Match

Glory to the armoured beasts of mankind!

These guys just walked towards the Tau the whole game, they went no where near the objective, they inflicted minimal casualties but they did their job - soaked up hit after hit of Tau fire.

The amount of fire these guys received was incredible, but they did not stop. Because of them the other 20 regular Marines remained untouched for most of the game.

Tau Fire Warriors
BFU (Biggest F*** Up)

Sitting on the back line for the whole game and shooting at Terminators was not a smart move. Two squads of Firewarriors did this and removed perhaps one or two Terminators as casualties. 

Meanwhile the other Marines went untouched and the Assault Marines lasted a lot longer than they should have.

Final Summary

A great game all told. The Tau struggled from turn two after not getting on top of the fact the Imperium forces had the relic and were retreating with it. Too much firepower was tired up with the Terminators who were doing nothing for the objective!

The Imperium could have made better use of the Marines on the right flank, a 5 man Tactical squad and a Command Squad did nothing all game and were hardly pictured too.

The Tau were well and truly beat.
