I fought my buddy again and lost again however, I took down all his squads and and vehicles . Wraith Lord and independant characters lived :mellow: :huh:
Will give a complete list of what I used and what he used later tonight.
Congrats man! What advice helped you? What didn't?
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
I always have problems with eldar i know a really good way to take care of there wraith lord and wraith gaurd and most hq choice its his vechicles and snipers that give me trouble but im working on it maybe we could trade info please what type of table do u use lenght width how much terain point size info please I need he always kills me
He used this, and anything that could have a Bright lance or Star cannon did:
Seer Council of 2 Farseer and 3 Warlocks
in Wave Serpant
5 Fire Dragons
6 Black Guardians w/ H. Weapons
6 Black Guardians w/ H. Weapons
6 Guardians w/ H. Weapons
Tank hunting skill on my units and my Defiler help me out alot. If it is fire power he's got then I would pull back a little. Raptors can jump from cover to cover.Originally Posted by Bloodrain
Defiler and flamers wipeout the squads fair fast. Raptors should only take 2 or 1 flamer depending on what their doing. 3 flamers i used were overkill. Take a meltagun, next game it'll make a world of differences.
We use a table 36 by 72.
greater demons work well egainst eldar foot soldiers jsut watch out for the witch blades wounding on twos. The problem most people have agianst eldar is they can't splitt their fire power, they wieth focus on the troops or the tanks. Don't worry overly about the tanks the gaurdians will be dropped by two heavy bolter or 3 bolter heh heh. thats three star cannons bighting the dust hard. The vyper will get demolished by a defiler if you are realy desprat ( one hit from the defiler inflicts two on the vyper) Raptors with melta guns might not work out all that well, his tanks can move faster than they can, you are proablly best off with several small squads of chaos marines with heavy weapons in them, and a squad of havocs with infiltrate. The avatar i asume joined up with the far seer, and probaly advaced along with the fire dragons. They seer concil will die after you pump enough shots into it saturate it with enough bolter shots and you can probally drop the warlocks and have a seer in a turn
Rheagar fought nobly
Rheagar fought valiantly
Rheagar fought honorably
And Rheagar died.
I expect the firedragons or the seer council (most likely the dragons deploy in the Falcon)Originally Posted by HeraldOfChaos
Since you play a chaos army I suggest the following target priority:
1. take down the waveserpent with the banshees.
2. kill the Falcon
That means that his most dangerous hth unit and probably his firedragons are walking the rest of the way. This should give you a little more time. Smack a battlecannon shot down on the banshees and they will be history.
Avatar, guardian squads and wraithlord are all fairly slow units.
The wraithlord is murder in hth, and a very accurate shot. I suggest aiming some shots at it when the serpent and falcon are down. Raptors with plasma can help finish it off when your lascannons have taken a wound or two off it.
The guardian squads are very small! Use that. Remember that the Avatar only makes them fearless in close combat. Just a little shooting and they might start running. Two flamer templates from your raptors should do the trick nicely. Oh, and if the Avatar is not close enough to countercharge you then you should charge the guardians asap. Any CSM unit will wipe out 6 guardians and a warlock without breaking a sweat.
Vypers can be a real pain darting from cover to cover and never be the most important target. Be sure to kill the wraithlord before the vypers since he will hit more reliably and can be next to impossible to kill in hth.
Thanks for the help. I will think about shooting the guy down next time.
