I have a brand new BA army, and I've just initiated it against the Nids. Now I am going to face an army that has defeated my Tau army all too many times. What deas one do agains the many-wound models? Is instant-kill weaponry to be bought to all troops or can one defeat them in any other way.
I am really weary because of his mages, If I rush into CC then models will be turned to Chaos Spawns and worse. What shall I do to counter this?
This is a 2000p battle btw.
Purge the unclean!
Against his sorcerers tae a Librarian the Psychic hood will be incredibly usefull at countering all those spells otherwise take a devastator squad equipped with 4 lascannons and equip any seargents in your death company with power fists otherwise I dont know how else to help you since I have never played BA.
"They shall all taste OBLIVION!,.....which tastes like Red Bull, which is disgusting."
Definately bring a lib against thousand sons. The psychic hood will help you to no end. Remember, it does not require LOS or any range, if he uses a psychic power, and you have a lib on the board, you get to try and counter his ability.
Mentor of Space Marine Commanders far and wide.
Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:
1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant
2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers
3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC
Pack alot of missle launchers into your army. Don't bother with lascannons, just go w/ the missile launchers. They will be able to take out any of his tanks, and they are the best weapon for killing marines. Also a couple baals/LST should be able to soften up his troops before you engage in cc. Good Luck!
Or you could just prey to the rottening emperor
I think that the Librarian and missiles will do you good.
But beware of the Defiler...
birng a lib or two for the psychic hood beacause he has sorcs all over the field the hood will help nullify alot of his powers and then bring a nice presence of you own to the field.
Ghost's of Terra
I assume ull be taking 1 assult squard and 1 DC, with chapy, and librarian. I think they all have slow and purposful so they he would have paractically no mobility, compared to you. As for devistators, BA have the curse thing, and i wouldnt risk losing a turn of shooting to it. Instead id dr opt for someop poding tatctial squads, Pf and melta. Im not sure if he can, but if hes got obliterators, you might want some lascannons to punch through that ammor. Personnaly i like perditor annilators with twin lascaonon side sponses, but in the new rules you might find that a heavy bolters work better, well at least all the really good ppl hear say it is. (they must use way more cover then my friends and I normally use) And i never think its a good idea to have blood angles tactical squards sitting around shooting. Also a dreadnought would be nice, furiuoso, on and skimmers tornados/meltas.
you need some help spelling
anyway back on topic
Missule launchers are best against thousand sons for insta kill. However they also get the 2 wound terminator advantage (i think) so add a few lascannons for good measure. This is one case where I wouldnt reccomend Land speeders to you as the assault cannon needs to roll 2 sixes to kill one guy.
Now for the crucial advantages you have
Thousand sons has limited anti tank weaponry. Their heavy support is all they have. Their tacticals cant carry heavy weps and cost a hell of a lot of points. So if you want to really annoying equip all tactical squads with lasccannons first turn blast his tanks and then spend the rest of the game circling his squads with your predators
if anyone finds avatar offensive just pm and i will change it
