Hi, last game I drew with 720 points of daemons (two nurgle blocks with herald) versus 840 points of high elves (without mages, goodbye 75 points for bsb and standard of sundering), now I have to face slightly over 1100 points (empire) with one or two priests, a great cannon, some free companies, some fast cavalry with 790 points
what would you do?
Maybe go for a unit of daemonettes with a herald with siren song, and 2 blocks of plaguebearers with heralds.
Mover your units halfway first turn and then at the start of the 2nd turn, lure out the knights with siren song, and sandwich them with all your units. The rest shouldn't be a big problem to get when you have your 2 units of PB's with T4, 5+ ward and regeneration. And maybe get the standard that gives -2 to all LD's tests within 12". Might cause some failed fear & panic tests.
If you wish to play a fair and balanced game, say no to playing against him/her. He/she has 400pts more than you do. Otherwise, try to close the gap between you with fast things like Daemonettes, Seekers, and Flesch Hounds. He/she will just shoot you to death unless you cause those Fear tests.
Armies: (Chaos) Space Marines [1250pts], O&G [2250 pts], OK [1000pts]
Da face of Mork looks down on the Gobbers of da Bwoo Moon, da bestest Gobbos eva.
I assume that this is some sort of escalation/attrition league? With that nurgle force you are just going to march down his throat and try to make sure the unit that gets engaged first in the one with the herald and use the 2nd unit to support the first.
Deploy on a far flank to at least avoid one of your flanks being exposed - usuallyon the opposite side to whichever he starts to deploy on to buy yourself more time.
The banner offering -2 LD will be a saving grace against flank charges when they have to take fear checks, similarly it will make break tests all that more brutal which against Empire that outnumbers you is probably one of the more effective tactics you have.
