Just out of curiosity, what does the imperial guard have that's good against teq? Other than the LR Executioner, I don't see a whole lot ...
As always, thank you for all replies.
Plasma Guns, Meltaguns, Demolishers, a crap-ton of lasguns/shotguns, lots of multi-laser fire, enough heavy flamers/flamers to force a lot of saves.
Honestly TEQs are a bit of a non-issue to me.
Power weapons in blobs for me. The Terminators are stuck killing worthless GEQs while the Commissar and Sergeants chip away. Driving an expendable Chimera (or two) in front of their Land Raider to delay their arrival is another fun tactic.
Most hordes do well against TEQs. All that awesome equipment gets wasted when the Chimera of Veteran Squad #3 is the most valuable target they can reach.IG can do better than most armies. A few Russ Demolishers and demo charges out of skimmers, backed up with as many special weapons as any other army, and they'll be hurting.Originally Posted by Nairb77
Want my advice on tailoring IG to fight Paladins? Bring three 50-man Commie blobs with no equipment and tarpit them. Then focus the rest of your army on whatever else they've brought (if anything). If you can't kill them then tarpit them until Judgment Day.

I always love using two pairs of medusas in all my guard lists deals well with paladins, thunderwolves etc.
hope is the first step on the road to dissapointment
Meltaguns, Demolishers, Manticores, Hydras, Plasma, Executioners, Lascannons.....pretty much anything that's AP 2/1 (to ignore armor and ignore FnP) and anything that's S8 or better (for Instant-Death and ignoring FnP), or are both. Didn't list S8 blasts alone unless they also have AP2 or can actually have a decent chance to hit (IE, not Standard Russes).
Paladins are a pretty fail unit choice IMO.....the only real pain-in-the-neck is Draigo himself.....that guy just refuses to die.
Yeah I faced a Draigowing a couple of times. I just butchered them with melta guns. It was funny and sad.
Draigo went down to veterans with shotguns + straken (after taking several melta guns to sensitive areas)
The list is a joke for guard.
I'd advise against going for blob squads though. They often have purifier backup and if you can't kill them they'll murder your blob squad in short order. Multiple rounds of cleansing flame is just unfair.

Better than me, I think I've kill him once. I still have a 6 - 0 W/L record against Draigowing, though.Draigo went down to veterans with shotguns + straken (after taking several melta guns to sensitive areas)This can be true for Paladin/Terminator lists, but is also true anytime you come up against Purifiers. It's a trade-off we have to deal with.I'd advise against going for blob squads though. They often have purifier backup and if you can't kill them they'll murder your blob squad in short order. Multiple rounds of cleansing flame is just unfair.
A special weapon squad with 3 demmo charges should deal with paladins. All the firepower of a Leman Russ demolisher squadron for only 95 points. Add in another 3 lascannon shots from the vendetta transporting them.
Terminators are good against elite armies able to withstand damage and kill expensive targets. Against guardsmen the power weapons don't make much difference nor does the strength 8 of the fists. 10 tac marines are probably more dangerous than 5 termies and the termies are more than twice as expensive as a marine. Even with non AP1/2 firepower a termie is only twice as dificult to kill as a MEQ but costs 10 points more than a pair of MEQs and has half the firepower (depending on range).
Basicly the more termies an opponent takes rather than MEQs the better for the guard.
