Yes I know the lighting is bad, I will bring down more lights next time.
Yes my camera work is shaky, I will try using a timer next time, and failing that, fork out the cash for a tripod.
Battle Chronicler prefers a North/South engagement, not the East/West layout that I used which causes labels to switch constantly.
I will endeavour to get better starting photos for the map in the future.
With that out of the way, this batrep has been done using Battle Chronicler which I hope to use again in the future. It took me a while to create the units and learn how to use it, but now that I've created my army, it will take me less time in the future. The actual diagrams took less than an hour after I''d created the unit and map etc.
Witch Hunters - Sister of St Joseph
Eldar - Ulthwe
Ross won the roll for choosing sides and opted for me to choose, I picked the side with the pig pen for some extra cover for my guardsmen. I deployed with my armoured elements split into two groups backed up by an Exorcist each. The Guard platoon deployed centrally to provide covering fire and to old the objectives located near my deployment area. The Canoness and Seraphim deployed behind my North flank Rhinos to help push through onto the objectives there. Ross deployed his War Walkers and Dark Reapers opposite my armoured forces on the Northern flank. His Wave Serpents with the Storm Guardians, Dire Avengers and Farseer deployed centrally hoping to swing to either flank. The Wraithlord, Wraithguard and Defender Guardians deployed on the Southern flank.

I realised early on that I had made a mistake in my deployment, as my goal was to push through with the attack on the Northern flank, whilst using the Southern flank as a I diversion/optimistic attack designed to hold up the enemy or take a lightly defended objective. However I only had minimal scoring units on the Northern flank and had the game not gone so well for me, I may not have had enough bodies left alive to claim the objectives. As it was, BSS 3 was whittled down to only four members, and came close to being swept away. Ross failed to use cover enough in his deployment which led to the loss of his mobility early on which really crippled him. We discussed this after the game along with a few tweaks for the list, mainly to drop the Dark Reapers for either a unit of Jetbikes or some Rangers for taking down MC's.
