Tactica Challenge: What's wrong with this picture?
The picture below shows my deployment in a recent tournament. At first glance, this looks like a really good set-up. The Broadsides are set up at the top of the building with plenty of cover. The two teams of Crisis Suits are ready to link up with Hammerheads and the Piranhas are ready to turbo-boost out to attack my opponent's flank. Although my opponent isn't completely set up yet, he does leave his left flank wide open and exposed. For your reference this army was 2 flying Daemon Princes, Oblits, 2 Defilers and a host of other close-combat nasties. However, there is something that hampered me about this set up the entire game and I believe that it ultimately cost me the game. Long story short, I was not able to fully attach the weak left flank as I had hoped. Can you guess why? What is wrong with this set-up?
