Game over - Final Score Orks\Daemons tabled the Grey Knights.

The Orks and Daemons managed to table the Grey Knights, the Nobz were a huge force in the middle of the board and soaked up a ton of fire and managed to explode a LR and kill all the Interceptors along with tar pitting the terminators for a few turns.  The Screamers did a lot of work as well by taking out Crowe, the last of the Terminators and the last Dreadnought.  Being able to turbo boost is a huge mobility advantage for the Daemons who are normally lacking in that department.
The Grey knight made some bad rolls and made a big tactical mistake by not running away with the Relic when the terminators had it, but instead charging the Nobz which let other units catch up and get into the fight.  After talking with my buddy he thinks he could have run and gunned them for a turn or two doing more damage that way and keeping the Relic away from my troops.  We both learned something which will help us in later games.
