I need help when versusing more numerous assualting armies.
Any good tactics??
be more specific what kind of list do you play or do you want to know what tactics work against them best in general? alot can depends on opposing armies compsisition but in general you best thing to do is take out fastest units first cause as many morale checks as possible (doesnt all ways work on fearless nids or big ork mobs) and good target priority and a few counter attack units to stall your opponets spearhead to let the rest of your army to shoot...
I play a rhino heavy assulting Space Wolve list.
You can see it in Need Advice:1500 Space Wolves
in the armylist section
Versus either of those armies: Heavy Bolters. Assault Cannons. Storm Bolters. Land Raider Crusaders. Predator Destructors. Whirlwinds. Basically anything with an AP4 or 5 on it with multiple shots or a blast. Many of their troops are average toughness with poor armor, so most heavy weapons can blast big chunks out of them with ease. Be sure to keep some tankbuster weapons handy in case you need to kill a Carnifex or Orky tanks!
It's possible to take them on in assault if you're careful. Attacking more than one unit at a time is bad, unless they're badly mauled already. The whole idea with horde armies is to simply swamp you under more troops than you can kill off, and relying on the fact that you're gonna fail those saves eventually. Charge and flatten any stragglers that get separated from the main force quickly, and beware for fresh units waiting to countercharge once you're done.
Always remember: they've got more wounds to burn than you, and they can pour out more attacks due to sheer numbers. They're quite capable of sending 20 models to a pointless doom :huh: , because the point is the 60 models coming up behind them!
a Dev squad with 4 heavy bolters makes and excellent anti-horde unit
