    OK i will sum this up for yall. I am playing vs a Imperial guard Army and i commonly use a landraider but it will soon be a target for his melta stormtroopers from deep striking. So is there any good ways to protect things (MY LANDRAIDER) against the deep striking stormtroopers???


    -THANKS

    Keep it close to troops and terrain so his DS zones will be very small, and hope he scatters into difficult/impassable terrain.

    the troops die...

    if i was you i would do what cyper said and stay close in to other SM troops so they have the small space.

    and if they do get close to the raider and say they immobalize it...turn the guns on the storm troopers and kill them because once behind enemy lines st can do a small amount of damage and enough damage for the rest of the guard army to run you over so kill them asap.
    P.S. Blood angels rule, the anger lets us ignore wounds ...hehehe

    well if he is in half range of the melta guns then he is VERY likely to destroy the LandRaider!!!

    I had the same problem with tank hunting fire dragons. My opponent would zip a Wave Serpent up near my Landraider next turn, thats all she wrote :glare:

    What I wound up doing was shadowing my Landraider with a 10 man Assault Squad. Because they both had a max 12' movement I didnt have to worry about one outdistancing the other and the Landraider acts as a mobile sheild from long range weapons. This way he cant get within range for his firepike without being in range for the Assault Squad.

    I would suggest the same thing for your landraider. After all, he has to be within 6 inches to be a real threat and the Assault squad should be all over them before that happens.

    That could work. IIRC storm troopers get 2 special weapons so outside of 6" he will only glance on a six, and he has to hit first. It's only about 10% chance of that with two meltas at BS4.

    The other 2% are smart enough to question the 'science' behind that number...
