Aggressors with Stoic Prosecution unload 114 shots into two units of Drones. Killed 12 drones.

Intercessors and Talonmasters gun down all drones, and many Fire Warriors. Talonmasters specially good at killing Tau.

Battle Round 4 – Dark Angels

I moved to try and eliminate the Ethereal and weaken a Riptide while maxing out Headhunter and Recon.

20

Killed Ion Riptide, Ethereal in shooting. Charged other Riptide.

21

Azrael hits with all attacks, rolls two 6+ (mortal wounds) and lands three wounds total on the Riptide. All saves failed. 3D3 Damage for eight more damage and finished the Riptide by himself.

Chapter Master at work!

Sword of Secrets silences the T’au. Ritual of the Damned triumph over Greater Good this day.

T’au concede after losing both Riptides with the remaining one with six wounds left.

Final Score

Dark Angels 25 – 10 T’au Empire
