Need help with a 1500 pt list against Space Marines, the Marines list looks something like this:
Captain: Relic Blade, Digial, Artificer Armor
Terminator Squad: Assault Cannon
Iron Dreadnought: Heavy Flamer, Hunter/Killer
Land Raider: Multi-Melta
(2) Tactical Squads: (2) Pwr Fists, (2) LasCannons, (2) Flamers
(1) Drop Pod
Generally all the Space Marines are deployed in Vehicles.
I am running an Ork Army using the following
Warboss: Mega Armor
(5) Mega Nobs
(9) Nobs: `evay armor, Power Klaw (4), Waaagh Banner, Boss Pole
(12) Boyz: Nob, Power Klaw, Boss Pole
(12) Tank Busta: Nob, Power Klaw, Boss Pole, (2) Tank Hammers
(5) Warbikes, Nob Boss Pole
(5) Deff Koptas: Twin Linked Rokkit Launcha
All Mega Nobs, Nobs, Tank Bustas and Boyz start in Truckks
Generally my tactics have been to use the Bikes and the Deff Koptas as screen to advance the Boyz.
I go after the Wirlwind with my Deff Koptas, Use the Tank Bustas on the Land Raider, Match the Mega Nobs Vs. Terminators, Nobs and Boyz vs. Tactical Squads.
The difficult part is to get the Space Marines out of the Rhinos so that I can assult them. Tank Busta and Deff Koptas can do this, but they often do not survive their primary missions (Destroying the Land Raider, Wirlwind) to make these attacks. I generally lose one vehicle to the Dreadnought on the first turn.
Any help, advice or comment would be appreciated. Thanks!
So your opponent is all "meched up" and "Tauish" (fights at range) am I correct?
I need to see some of your opponent and your strategy so I can make better judgment, but at the least I would advise you take out the SP's ranged units first (maybe use some supped-up nob bikers or something).
Sorry need a little bit more to work with.
His opponent here, and I could enlighten you with my evil plan.
Alright first his orks want to get close and charge me so they get what...30 attacks?
I do not want that, so I often take them out of any vehicles I can. Then I usually drop blast templates on the mobs of boyz or nobz ignoring their armour and cover. Killing Tankbusta or deff Koptas, and his mega nobz first with my heavier weapons. If he gets too close to my land raider I move up unload my captain with the term squad and assault him. Hitting those units with 6 attacks before he can even fight back.
I use my dreadnought to kill a vehicle, and then assault him hopefully crushing alot of orks under my feet. So uh yeah, that is how I handle his orks.
Look I am new to the 6th Ed rules and am not an Ork player.
However I Eternally Hate All Space Marines so Chaos Daemons or Chaos Space Marines make great allies.
Screamers shred armour and Plaque Hulks & Blight Drones should help to put holes in those Termies.
P.S. Nurgle is your greatest friend accept his help.
