I ordered from the Chinese again and I received a perfect re-cast of a Hellforged Leviathan Dreadnought. This time it took 6 weeks for the pack to arrive but the price difference is worth the wait. Miniature arrived in perfect condition, almost no mold lines and easy to assemble.

I set my bikes as close I could towards the enemy. Havocs, Predator and a Chaos Lord inside a building holding an objective. Rubric Marines are inside the chrome Rhino, Marines with flamer inside the Khorne Rhino and Plague Marines in the last Rhino.
My opponent set his Fire Warriors around Darkstrider.
Chaos Space Marines Turn 1:
Rhinos move up the board. Heldrake fries some Fire Warriors. I lose a bike when assaulting the Ghostkeel and I manage to do only one wound.
Tau Turn 1:
Crisis and Commander drop behind my bikes and Rhinos. They kill most of the bikers and a Rhino. Bomber kills 4 Havocs.
Chaos Space Marines Turn 2:
Marines with flames disembark shoot and charge the Crisis suites. Rubric Marines do the same to the Commander. After shooting everything at those Crisis one squad goes down. Bokes assault again the Ghostkeel and do one more wound. Heldrake does 4 wounds on a Broadside.
Tau Turn 2:
Ghostkeel kills a bike. Pathfinders do 4 wounds on the Lord. Commander kills a Rhino. Crisis murder 4 Rubric Marines. Broadsides do a couple of wounds on the Heldrake.
Chaos Space Marines Turn 3:
Plague Marines assault a squad of Fire Warriors, kill them but loose guy. Havocs finish off the Commander. Marines, Rubric and Cultists kill 2 of the Crisis suites. Heldrake kills one Broadside and the Chaos Lord on bike kills some Pathfinders.
Tau Turn 3:
Ghostkeel kills the Chaos Lord. Fire Warriors kill 2 Plague Marines. Broadsides kill 3 Rubric Marines, then the Crisis kills the last one. Bomber kills the 2 bikes.
Chaos Turn 4:
Marines kill the Crisis Battlesuite. Plague Marines kill the Breacher Teams. Heldrake kills 2 Pathfinders, then assaults the Bomber inflicting 2 wounds. Predator kills one Broadside.
Tau Turn 4:
Bomber kills some Plague Marines. Ghostkeel and Broadside kill the Heldrake.
Chaos Space Marines Turn 5:
Marines assault the Ghostkeel and 2 of them die. Plague Marines kill Darkstrider.
Tau Turn 5:
Ghostkeel, Patfinder and Broadside manage to kill only 3 Marines. Bomber kills a marine from the second squad.
Chaos Turn 6:
Marines kill the Pathfinder and grab the objective. Everybody else shot and killed the Bomber.
We calculated how many points my opponent can score in his turn and he decided not to continue. Game end Chaos 21 - 17 Tau.
Turn 6 won me the game since I scored a couple of D3 objectives and rolled well with the die.

I started the campaign for Dawn of War 3 and I can say that they payed much attention to the table top game. You start the first mission with Blood Angels, lead by Gabriel Angelos, fighting back the Orks and gathering allies.
