The AV14 wall will be daunting against my Tau, as will the huge amount of AP2 weaponry. Here's to hoping that I can get close enough with my Riptides, and roll well enough with my Ordnance weapons to punch through the armour!

What are your thoughts on this matchup? Who will walk away the winner? What would you change with the lists?

This game should be a real slugfest. My KDK have no way to deal with the Tyranid shooting, so the hope is that the Scorpion will live long enough to be able to get some killing done! On the other side of the table, Jamie is going to have to worry about a whole lot of very fast moving Khorney death coming straight at him!

Either way there will be blood for the blood god!

Who do you think will win?
