It finally happened

That's right, you have no idea what I'm talking about.  Allow me to enlighten you.  My regin of terror in NJ with grey knights has ended!  After a month and a half, 2 tournament wins, and countless practice games, I've finally been put down.  So, now I'm like 25-1-3 (3 being draws, and 25 is an approximation)

For those who care here was his list

Blood Angels 2000

5 THSS termies + 1 priest in a redeemer
2 5 man assualt squads with meltas in las plas razors
2 5 man assualt squads with meltas in TL HF razors
3 MM attack bikes
2 units of 4 scout bikes with a fist
2 preds (AC LC)

The game went a little like this.  He got first, there wasn't any terrain to hide my tanks behind.  I should have reserved but I thought I could handle the fire power.  I was hoping my re roll seize would scare him away from the alpha strike with the bikes, and if it didn't then I was hoping to seize lol.  A pretty awful strategy, but I figured it could work.

Well he scouted I failed to seize, then his bikes came in wrecked 2 razors and dread.  Then killed 1 of the strike squads I threw at them before dying.  He also took 2 of my dreads out of the game for the first 2 turns, so his tanks went on unscathed.  He shot the crap out of me.  Forced me to split my army, then threw the attack bikes and the redeemer and termies into 1 half, and mephiston and 10 assualt marines into the other.  I managed to kill all of that, but my army was basically dead and he still had 2 preds and 2 razors full of guys on the objectives. 

We actually ended up tying the primary (objective), since it went to turn 7 and I had forced a ld test on one of his scoring units which fled off the objective.  But then he won 3-1 quarters, and like 17-8 kill points.

That's the way the cookie crumbles I guess.  Hopefully I'll make a fewless deployment mistakes in the rematch.
