I run a Blood Angels army and i just lost to orcs. I play a 2000 pts battle. This guy is tricky he doesnt bring the same thing to battle twice in a row but anyways i need a strat to beat him anyone know what i can take and what i should do against these orcs? He usally takes a lot of guys and a squad of dreds plus always a leaman russ.
Shoot him up. If you can hang back and shoot, he can't assault you. That is slightly bad for you, but worse for him *worse BS and guns*. Take a Baal Predator or 2 so the assault cannons can rip his Boyz apart, and something with Lascannons to deal with the Leman Russ.
Only assault him after you've worn him down a lot.

A couple of Land Speeders would serve you well.Originally Posted by Chaplain Kael

take allot of basic tacticals with bolters all around and missile launchers preferably. LST as stated would do very well with the crappy ork BS not really doing much and the 6+ needed to hit it CC would make it in some cases safer than a landraider!! The somewhat less used Land Speeder Typhoon would also be pretty good at blasting the boyz to bits as it is one point of strength better than the average frag missile helping against the relatively good orky toughness.
Also a Predator with lascannons all around or lascannon heavy devestator squad would really help the anti armour cause with leman russ its first target.
Terminators are not reccomended because of the choppas.
Do not use souped up characters! a cheap chaplain or a cheap with basic equipment librarian with fear of darkness will do well.
Seeing you are a BA a baal predator would also do well against the orks.
"Battlecannon shells are falling on my head but that doesn't mean i soon will be dead nannanana" A tribute to that terminator sweet 2+ save.
And then there as those days when it gets hosed down with some plasma.......as it happened today damn you tau crisis suits!! :mad:
take HB for your tac. squads they rip through any orc squad and maybe a crusader will work you get 11 shots 13 if upgraded with pintle mounted stormbolter. A whirlwind can do wonders against orks.
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
Landspeeder tornado wtih asault cannon 4 the squads, cheap cahracters, no terms, yea actually lots of tornados. MAybe make your army more shooty and missile launchers would be great as they can deal tih the leman russ while also beign able to smash orc infantry (ork get no save against frags). LOTS of bolters. IN essence go for nu,bers as well with some land speeders as teh bloters are very effectibve against orcs

thanks yea i figured that but i didnt think of land speeders thanks for the help guys
Yep Land Speeders are great.Baals are also awesome.They can lay down a hail of firepower,especially when feilded in twos.In saying Baals are great something equally good or even better is whirlwinds.They will take out plenty of orks.Take lots of tactical squad with heavy bolters,they are great.
We iz da orkz, not da orcz. I 'ope ya get pummeled by ma' favorite grot. Stoopid umie'.
Da only way ta stop da orkz iz to shoot alotz. Da cunnin boss's all take da tank killaz (Loads of rokkitz and da such), da only way to protect ur eavy' weapunz iz ta use da meat shield.
We iz mean n' green, n u cana stop uz!
