I know they're Imperial Guard. You know they're Imperial Guard. We all know they're Imperial Guard.
But when it's printed everywhere, sometimes it just comes out. Is that conditioning of some type?

We ended up just playing Kill Points, so I lost 12-8.
I also made a few alterations to my list.
I ended up breaking it into two CADs, so I could take 2 Ravagers, a Razorwing and a Talos.
I dumped Trueborn and Scourge, and took a unit of wracks instead.
As for what happened, well, the wyches got blown apart (1 chimera got haywired), because he remembered the pain they caused last game. The Talos also copped a face-full of fire for the same reason as wyches.
He also took grenadiers with carapace armour to protect him from splinter fire, which kinda-sorta helped them a bit.
He deployed and played very cautiously, minimal movement,
The beasts performed excellentlly, smashing through Rough Riders, glancing a chimera to death and running off a Veteran Squad.
The Razorwing blew up his Pask tank, which was nice. But I should have fired the missiles first, even if they couldn't hurt the tank, I could have got a lucky scatter onto some infantry. Anyway.
My Archon and Grotesque unit had a rough time, failed a 3" charge, and suffered a few "First Rank Fire, Second Rank Fire" Orders, which slew the Grotesques. My Archon then ate a Eradicator Nova Shell. Should've had a Shadowfield.
Haemonculus and the wracks liquified some stuff very nicely. Haemon then charged a Veteran squad and carved them up. Over a few turns.
So my recommendations for you Jubod, are this-
-If he's never faced haywire, give him a very nasty introduction. With multiple units.
-Whatever you using to deliver the wyches, max movement, flat out and aether-sail them forward, then Jink. Next turn, attack.
-KILL the Company Commander, or any other Order Issuing unit(Platoon Command, Tank Commander, Pask) Fast!!
-Guard are not famous for their movement, so take advantage of static deployment.
-The faster you get in his face, the less shooting you'll cop.
None of that is very earth shattering, but I hope its mildly interesting for you.
Now I'm curious what list you'll run and how you'll do.
