Impressions of 6th Edition:
-Massed Psykers are a credible defense against Flyers. I lost all three during the battle. I did put two of them in Hover mode in order to deliver mass firepower on to the Terminator squads, which did the pilots no favors. Also, I forgot to take Deny the Witch rolls when my Vendettas were targeted.
-It took over three hours to play a 1500 point game :/. Of course, we were looking up rules frequently.
-Move & Shoot games are so much more fun than any previous edition of 40k: Rapid Fire, Overwatch, and Snapshot make the game so much better.
-I should have kept my infantry all on foot, instead of keeping 25 of them in reserve aboard the Vendettas. One Vendetta got taken out before the troops had a chance to deploy, the Platoon Command Squad miffed their one chance at glory by failing to kill a small Thousand Son squad, leaving only one Infantry Squad to hold the central objective.
-Vendettas should NEVER get placed into Hover Mode. They will die. /endstorybro
