Prep – Ben Garbutt won strategy rolls off. He places objectives close together on my side hoping for a titan to hold both, Blitz close as possible to me.
I placed my blitz direct opposite his, trying to tempt a titan out of position and my other 2 far right once again trying to spread his limited resources.
Ben Took Corners, kept his titan tight packed close as they can be to me
I spread out my Stompas on the right and boys on the left
Great Gargant 7 Shields, Gargant 1 6 Shields, Gargant2 4 Shields

Orks won the strategy roll; Titans to activate first
Ben activates Thunderbolts – ground assault straight at the great gargant, AA takes down 1 plane on the way – Plane takes a shield off Great Gargant
Stompa’s activate for a double; move to the right toward the objectives through cover, they stay in ruins take terrain tests.

To be honest - I love the current list. The list above is the same one I recently took to a tourney, designed to take on all comers. To that end, I've only taken the solid choices for the upgrades (Supa-Zapp guns, Mega Lobbas, Wyrdboy Towers, Reinforced Boilers) - I see these as the most popular/versatile options.

I'll have a think on it and follow through with a detailed report tonight
