    Rhino Rush

    What exactly is rhino rush and how do you use it? I've heard about it but I can't quite figure it out.

    Thanks in advance.

    Always do a search before asking a question. A lot of the time, you'll find the answer in an older thread!

    Thing is, rhino rush is dead, because you can no longer assault out of transports it isn't anywhere as affective as it used to be.

    That said, it is still powerful, its just easier to counter now (before it was game winning).

    The newer tactic is to plasma rush, drive up, jump out and rapid fire your enemy to death (and plasma excels at this, hence the name).

    hehe

    Poor fools.

    With the Dark Eldar, our open-topped raider's allow us to assault out of vehicals, leaving the tactic as valid as before the new edition.

    However, eggshell armour is the price we pay.

    So if your bulky marines could squeeze their way out of their Landspeeders; they could assault too!
    minimalism is the key.

    No need for the fool remark there mate...

    And well as to what a Rhino Rush is...it is a Rush of Rhinos! :lol:

    It is basically loading all of your troops into rhinos and sending them up the feild so that they can get into the thick of battle very quickly. As The_Outsider pointed out, this tactic isnt AS effective as to what it used to be with the 3rd edition rules which allowed us to assault out of our rhinos. So this tactic was extremly powerful when used by chapters such as the Blood Angels who are close combat specialists.

    But of course the 3rd edition rhino rush is dead. The 4th edition rhino rush is still good, however just not as good as it used to be.But It CAN work, dont be discouraged by remarks about how useless rhinos are. If you want to develop a rhino rush army, dont be afraid to! My friend has a rhino rush trait army and it works really well.

    Cheers mate,
    Tycho

    How I miss those days.

    But as said, you can still use it to shoot the crap out of an enemy unit. Two Rhinos does this better than one btw. See my Rhino Tactica.
