This was great fun to read, I love all the different flavors of AARs you get with these games.

Grabbing save but again, probably no time to play :( so if anyone else does just post that you are taking the next set!

And it was going so well, too. Bloody Gangrels.

Okay, the Northern Xenopod Units will become a threat, but I'd focus on hitting the Xenopod HQ. Get the HQ, and they'll fold.
After that, it's two heavily armed units and 75-80% of the map against some independent Xenos and the Love Cult. Dealer's choice.
If you can get a shot at the Gangrel without risking the HQ, do it, but your priority should be the base. The chances that the Gangrel will assault your HQ on its own are minimal, and your Skeletors should be able to see it off.

I hope to see the Machine Flag raised by turn 60.
