What a great win!

May league final

Wow what a game! My opponent, Kevin, is a very good player who always plays very solid lists. I wasn't really expecting much but I knew my typical battlewagon list would not do well. So the first thing I did was..leave them at home!

My list:
HQ: Warboss, bike, cybork, bosspole, pk, squig
HQ: Mek, Cybork, Burna, KFF, stikkbombz

Troop: 20 Sluggas, Nob w/PK & Bosspole
Troop: 30 Shootas, 3x Rokkit, Nob w/PK & Bosspole
Troop: 30 Sluggas, 3x Rokkit, Nob w/PK & Bosspole

Elite: 13 Lootas
Elite: 11 Kommandos, 2x burna, + Snikrot

Fast: 3x Warbikes (joins boss as ablative wounds lol)
Fast: 2x Deffkopta, 2x TL Rokkit

Heavy: 3x Kans, 3x Rokkits - Main job here is to be a fire magnet
Heavy: 3x Lobbas, 3x ammo runts

1750pts exactly.

Also in this league you get a random USR to apply to any unit. I got scout, which I put on my biker boss! heh I scouted/turbo-boosted him up but ended up having my opponent seize the initiative.

-The lootas exploded both Vendettas.
-The lobbas worked out great! Didn't end up pinning anyone but they shook the Mantiore one turn, made one unit that came out of a vendetta run off the table and killed a few more guys.
-Snikrot came on, flamed a blob killing 8 and then got 27 total wounds in the assault..and they were out of counter-attack range!
-Deffkoptas were a great distraction, took a lot of shooting and wrecked a chimera
-The warboss was killed without killing anything but took an amazing amount of shooting to do so. Go go T6!

I am still really surprised that not only did I win, but I completely dominated. There were a couple times he had some really bad wounding rolls..flamming the kommandos only had 2 wounds out of 9 hits, and a FRFSRF from a blob on a unit of 30 boys resulted in only 5 wounds. But he was making mad to hit and cover/armor it pretty much averaged out.
