I've decided to start this thread for people struggling to win games against certain armies. The idea is that if people post their problems here then theres bound to be someone out there who can help you. Whether its that horde unit of Skaven Stormvermin grinding you down, Teclis ripping your army apart piece by piece with magic or Warriors of Chaos pummeling you into the dirt, there is always a solution.
So post your thoughts/problems/solutions here and crush the lesser races like the worthless scum they are.
How would you go about taking apart a gunline army like empire or drawfs?
Play regularly Vs. WoC. Hate these guys. Warriors/Chaos knights/even sorcerer has like 1+ save. Magic and lots of bolt throwers are the obvious choice here and I have had moderate success with black guard. But I'm wondering what people think of using 30-40 executioners with a death hag BSB and asf banner?
Thanks for the vote of confidence man man, How wide do you run them....I was thinking either 6 wide or 8 wide

10 wide to horde for more attacks
Taking apart Empire gunlines is easier than you may think. Harpies, Shades and Dark Riders can all go warmachine hunting and hassle Crossbowmen, Archers and the like. Our magic can easily tear them apart.
Dwarves......well.....you're more manouverable than them, although if the go for the good old "deploy on a hill and refuse a flank" ploy, then you're gonna have a tough time cracking them. I'll admit, the Dwarven box-gunline has me foxed as well. WoC I tend to use Soulblight on them, have an Assassin hiding to take on challenges.....or the "unkillable" Dreadlord. A good tactic is to have Shadowblade in your army and hide him in the same unit as one of his Sorcerers....they have Eye of the Gods too. Hehe.
I have a confession to make.....I play High Elves too....although only for half a year, compared to 9 with Dark Elves. Still, what better way to learn how to beat something by plaing with it?
Hey all, i collect Skaven and Ogres, my friend is a games who enjoys winning and has a competitive army. His army is DE horde army, he plans to take 2 squads of DE warriors with spears and shieldson the flanks, a unit of corsairs in the middile and a unit of black guard.
Thus he has 4 blocks of elite infantry, and usually slaughter me. I have never versed this army as he changes it every now and then but this army looks solid, any hints?
I was thinking Dwarf castle but my younger bro lost the dwarf codex, nnnooo! cheers for making the whole idea up "Ravenblade" much appreciated.
