sorry on the pics guys I made a picture in paint but it won't copy into the post area so without further ado here it is

Trukk recking ball stikk bomb throwers reinforced ram 55
12 hard boys with pk nob in trukk 155
Trukk recking ball stickbomb throwers reinforced ram 55

(3x) Landspeeder with multi-melta, assault cannon, heavy bolter
(2) Librarian with ability to add D3 attacks every assault phase each of these traveled with his tactical squad
Everything infiltrates
1500
I won deployment said I would deploy first so I set up a refuse flank and than put down my kommandoes on the other side of the board so he couldn’t deploy there. I put my buggies slightly in front of my buggies so he couldn’t hit the wartrukks even if he went first because he told me he was going to assault me if he got the chance.
The map looked like this after set up all the rounded lines were difficult terrain and impassible for vehicles and the one in the top right corner infantry could not shoot out of. The librarians are with the squads one on the right and left flank.




As you might have noticed I don’t show where my kannons are that is because I didn’t put them down oops.
Turn 1
Orks get first turn
Motorcycles move up a lot so do trucks and the hard boys get out but I forgot to take out the normal boys but if I had they could have assaulted. Shoota boys that are with the vehicles move forward and pick off a space marine or two from squad 1. Kommandoes move towards skimmers and one squad goes to the rim of the pit two skimmers are in and shoot and assault one skimmer stunning it and destroying its weapon. The other Kommandoes killed one space marine from squad 5. The lootas and battlewagon kill 5 out of a tactical squad 4. The buggies pick off a space marine from squad 1 between the 2 of them. The looted wagon made all of its points back by not scattering and killing an amazing 7 marines from squads 1 and 2. All the bikes shoot at squad 3 than assault it taking it down to 3 and losing 2 in the process. The warboss shoots than assaults squad 1 killing a few bring it down to 2. Hard boys assault squad 4 losing a but take down little of the squad. Being Space marines they pass all leadership tests and keep fighting.

Space marines turn 1
Skimmers that move forward blowing up the truck with normal boys in it and I lose 3 or 4 squad 5 moves forward and can’t shoot squad 1 with librarian assaults the lone warboss. Librarian with squad one assaults the bikes and kill all of them off. the warboss does terrible in close combat and runs away only killing 1 and then running away.
End of turn 1 casualties
Space marines 26 space marines
Orks 6 bikes 5 hard boys 3 boys
Turn 2
orks
Warboss regroups. Shoota boys move up again. Kommandoes assaulting the skimmer continue to do so now immobilizing it but it was landed anyway so it still lives. Other kommandoes rokkits stun the skimmer. The buggies and lootas and battlewagon all shoot at squads 1, 2, 3 killing all of them except 3 and the librarian. The hard boys do terrible in assault but remain fighting. The shoota boys move up again and help finish off one of the squads. Warboss assaults one of the remnants of a squad and kills it.
Space Marines
Squad 5 with the librarian move up and assault help squad 4 with the hard boys killing off most of them, and making them break and running them down consolidating into the normal boys. The librarian on the left flank that was with the squad 1 move towards the mass of space marines in the middle of the board. The skimmer I didn’t stun shot at the side armor of my battle wagon and I forgot it was armor 12 not 11 so he glanced it rolled a 6 on glance chart and he said that everyone in it automatically suffered a wound and had to roll for save not a 4+ than save, so all but 2 loota’s died.
Casualties
32 space marines 1 landspeeder
12 hard boys 4 boys battlewagon 11 lootas
Turn 3
Orks
My warboss ignores the librarian and 3 marines in front of him and charges the mass of space marines in the middle. My shoota boys charge the mass of space marines in the middle. Kommandoes still assaulting the skimmer (forgot they can’t actually hurt it without furious charge oops!) they don’t do anything to it anyway. Other kommandoes miff all there rokkit launcher shots buggie shakes the speeder wrecking ball on hard boy trukk misses the landspeeder as well. And interesting situation as in the assault in the middle almost everyone except 8 of my boys got a charging bonus and the result is everything dies except my warboss, 3 marines 2 sergeants and one of his librarians. I had 5 slugga boys left but they fled and couldn’t regroup so I counted them among the dead.
Space marines
Speeder kills one squad of commandoes. Librarian and 3 space marines assault a buggie killing it. Librarian in assault with commander fails psychic test suffers perils of the warp and is eaten by a demon leaving play but the remaining marines kill the warboss and the warboss kils all but one of them the kommandoes still assaulting the speeder do nothing but destroy the rest of its weapons.
Final results
He had a librarion and two 2 man squads and a landspeeder
I had 5 kommandoes 2 lootas and looted wagon with a boomgun which was about to kill the librarian and a squad with combined fire from meks with kmg’s
Suffice to say it was massive carnage. Nearly 20 orks and 15 space marines were all killed in one assault phase. It was 11:30 and we had to leave the store so we called it a tie

Too bad you guys couldn't finish the game it seemed like fun.

Some list correction as well:

165 = Warboss's: I assume the scorcha is a combi scorcha/shoota since he cannot have a scorcha;
70 = 5 kommandos with 2 rokkit launchas;
70 = 5 Kommandos with 2 rokkit launchas;
35 = Warbuggie with tl rokkit launcha;
160 = 5 Warbikes with 1 Nob biker with PK;

So that mean you shorted your self 15 points.

I also forgot to put the cannons down which really hurt me I think because they could easily kill 2 marines a turrn.

when did u realize that you forgot the cannons?
If it was during the game after deployment you should of just brought them on via reserves.

I realized about half way through turn 1 but that would have been good if I had brought them in through reserves, my opponent wasn't being very accomadating because I didn't let him move his speeders away from my kommandoes halfway through turn 1, oh well I still had fun
