4-Way 40k: The Rematch! Part 1

Remember the last time I did this I said it was the last time I would do such a thing? I lied. We managed to squeeze in another one. Here is the introduction.

The Last Ultimate Final Battle 4-Way Challenge...Game...Thing.

Scenario: Same one as last time. 4 objectives in a rectangle in board centre. Any unit can score. The objective furthest away from the player's deployment zone is their Vital Objective and is worth 2 points to them and them alone.

Armies: This time the armies were 1250 a side, with me using the Exercitus with some borrowed Grey Knights from 'Scape, who used his Eldar. Twin K used Chaos again. Meanwhile, in honour of his victory last time, Twin P became King P, who used Tau again. The lists were:

Pre-Game: Turn order was P, 'Scape, K and then me. Everyone bar me deployed all their units, while I chose to reserve my Interceptors and Deep Strike my Termies (read: half my shooting power).
