Battle Report: Blood Angels vs Saim Hann Seer Council

So Fritz and I played a game last night. I used my BA GT list, inlcluding my new Speeder and Attack Bike. Fritz used his Saim Hann force that he plans on playing at the GT. It was more of just a friendly game so we werent really focusing on killer strategy, but the short of it is that I completely cut him down like the lapdog he is. By turn 5 he had his Fire Prizm and 1 vyper. I had lost a Dev Combat Squad, my RAS and Dante (cheap mind war). We were playing Kill Points so the game was very much over. His mistake was to lead the charge with his seer council while protecting his bikes behind cover. He should have done the reverse. Provide me with a juicy target that I cannot pass up by putting his bike squads in range, and flank with his seer council. He left them in the open though, relying on his invul/cove saves. Sadly though I pumped a LOT of firepower into him, and when he is rolling 10 saves at a time, he is going to roll some 1's. By the time they got into assault, there was only 3 left. They used Mind war on Dante killing him, but the Honor Guard finished them off fairly easily, then went on to kill two more squads. Actually the HG was having trouble with the Farseer who was the last one, but then a squad of bikes jumped into the assault to try to save her. I wounded her, won combat, and they failed morale... The Farseer and the bikes were cut down. Fritz, never assault a Blood Angels Honor Guard with guardian bikers. So that was about it. My speeder spent most of the game stuned because Fritz tried franticly to knock it out. But finally it managed to get into range and it popped a transport with its melta. The attack bike sped all over the place as well, and zoomed into cover to pop a shot at a vyper and exploded it. Two Death Company charged a squad of Guardians hiding in a building and ate their livers with a nice Chianti. The dreads mopped up the Vypers. Fun game Fritz!

Sigh, I got arrogant and wanted to wipe you off the table with a sweep of my jetbikes. Counting on my farseer to hold, I should have held back and waited staying at range. Once I saw my farseer wasn't going to hold my jetbikes were way close, no choice then...
