John is a great opponent and I can only hope to be as good a sport as him someday. We are both slavishly dedicated to finishing a game and seeing how it turns out. I have a LOT to learn about Eldar. Wow, that's a lotta rules! I also need to aggressively seek out new knowledge on terrain and how it works in the game.

John did well in the situation he was given. He was really hampered by an army that was not well-equipped for the mission and he was unaccustomed to 3rd edition Tyranids.
