That game seemed like a lot of fun! I really enjoy your humourous battle reports. :)

Would simply castleing up in your deployment zone have been a good strategy? It seems like all you really had to do was sit back and pop whatever got near.

Thanks :) I enjoy writing them.

I castled up vs Tyranids in the last tournament I played in, and nearly tabled them, but I prefer games where I get to move about. Also, Farsight is bad at castling, since he lacks Kroot. I only really had one defensive layer, and that will last 1 Turn at most. With the Trygon putting a tunnel down so near my firebase, it made sense to move away, since it cost me nothing, and it gained me room to maneuver.
