From my experience against termys, you wouldn't outlast them. Sorry man, but i think you lost that to some good rolls, on his part.

Weee im the winner! (im the guy that playd him). Your problem is with the infiltrating.You cant infiltrate right on the front of my squads,while they have the chance to shoot at you. My army was quite simple.I didnt make much upgrades and tactics...well make a remach today

No one really won that battle. Unless you count victory points up, just call it a draw.

A few notes:

Terminators are nothing to be scared of. You move just as fast as they do. You can move away from them, and they do very little in the end. Focus on killing his squish marines. You win by default after that pretty much via victory points.

Infiltrating in his face, can cause problems. He has a lot of low AP attacks. However, his Auspex will not see you as often as one may think, so don't worry about it too much. Your Lord can be used to great effect to take out his shooting devastators--with daemonic speed, that's first turn assault. Also, unless your Lord was simply closer than all other units, he should not have been able to be a target.

Anyhow - I await to hear of a rematch!

Cheers!

Todays rematch was canceled due to tripods driving lessons with his old man...
