This was rough. Walkers give me a ton of trouble to begin with, and I didn't get a single invisibility after NINE rolls on telepathy in game one. I got demolished in CC and he was fast enough to keep up with me. Game 2 I decided to go with technomancy and wish I'd done that game one. That discipline is awesome against vehicles. I destroyed a dreadnought and 2 land speeders with his own sicaran thanks to subvert machine, and the +1 toughness spell helped my star a lot. The last game was against a tau player I've beaten twice already. Had the game ended on turn 5 I would have won, on turn 6 I would have tied, and there were 4 models left at the end. I can think of one or two mistakes but I've ultimately decided to change up my list for my tournament next month. In a week or two I'll post part two of my Ravenwing tactica.
