I am gonna be participating a quick three battle tournament on saturday and I need help. The players will be mostly playing Marines, Necrons, Eldar and their is one really nasty Chaos, Iron Warriors army with three squads of 2 Obliterators :w00t:
What would you recommend? I am guessing lotsa AP3 or better weapons for all that power armour, Missile Laiuncher might be good cos I can use frag against the Eldar. I dont wanna be labeled as a power player but a little bit of competitiveness shouldn't hurt.
Cheers in advance
Assault cannon! they get loads of shots and with rending mow down even marine really well.
A dreadnaught is a must and some terminators wouldn't hurt either (give a commander T. armour and a 10 strong terminator command squad with an attached chaplin/librarium and watch them dish it out- even though it is pricey). A few krak missile and plenty of H. bolters couldn't hurt.
A whirlwind is always a nice addition (particularly against eldar) and plenty of tactical squads and you can't go far wrong IMO.
Hope this helps.
Original_Insanity, whats your preffered playing style; shooty, close combat, mechanised, armoured, footsloggers, etc. ?
sheer firepower or armoured units can break each of those enemies as well as as many close combat oriented troops as possible (tac-squads given take the fight to them of course...)

I like to play a well rounded list, maybe lotsa stationary shooting with counter charge, failing that I need a list that can, if I come up against an all shooty list, go on the offensive and still come out smiling.
Well, lascannons instant death an obilterator, as do powerfists, although they will still get that annoying 5+ plus save. Bikes, can hunt obilerators, with 2 melta gun shots, bolter fire, and a charge, you can easily sink 2 obilerators, then repeat as nessisary.
Drop pods with melta gun, and powerfisted sgt will pretty much annihilate any ironwarriors army, reframe from taking many tanks.
Is there gonna be a monolith there, cause if there is then you absolutely have got to have 3-5 lascannons in your army, nothing else (except the viindaicato which dies against necrons anyways) will kill it quick enough. Prefrebly they qould be in tac sqauds to avoid tyhe super artillery on the Monolith.
Take life seriously, its lethal.
i cant really give u shooty advise considering some people doubt the effectiveness of my own tactics, although it works quite well
that an my army luves CC
although if u do ever want to get close take the "see but do not be seen" chapter trait, for a 10 man tactical squad you can give them infiltrate for 30 points, which is cheaper than a rhino, and has them there at turn one, thay can also be used as a meat shield as you bring all the special units to bear (eg getting a vindicater into a crucial position)
thats basiaclly my stragety, normally people think im mad when i try it, but when evey single of my squads are in CC with them they begin to panic as my marines start tearing up heads....
but anyway, id reccomend following other people advise, exept if ure against Tau, this stragety destroies them utterly

No they cannot instant kill obliteraters. They are T5 so the only weapon capable of instant kill that's available to marines is the Demolisher cannon on the vindicator.Originally Posted by ForgedInTheFurnaceOfWar
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
actually, thats fake toughness, so lascannons can insta-kill them
Take life seriously, its lethal.
