    Bulldozing Baltimore

    My friends and I are heading down to Baltimore on the 24th of this month to participate in the Assault on the Rock 'ultra battle' or whatever they want to call it. They say that it's just a bring 'n battle format and they want as many models on table as they can get. So, the three of us teamed up to make a total of 7,000pts and put about 4 full SM Force Org. Charts on the table (equivalent to about 300 SM models)
    We decided that we are going to sell our army as a mechanized force because we have:
    3 Land Raiders
    1 Crusader
    4 Rhinos
    1 Razorback
    2 Predators
    1 Vindicator
    6 land speeders
    2 bike squads with attack bikes
    and over 12 assault squads

    all of our transports are full, just so you know. There is obviously more in the lists, but it doesn't move fast enough to stick with our tanks and will be relegated to defending whatever sections we need to. So really, the question comes down to this:

    We want to take as many points worth of enemy troops down with us as we can, and we plan to do so by tossing out this massive armored column. We want to do as much damage as we can with minimal losses. It's not heroic, but it will kill lots of bad guys.
    WHAT ARMIES DO WE TARGET?
    we aren't sure what side we'll be put on, so any answere is fine and very much appreciated

    I would have to say with the stuff you got up there the nids and the orks. You have the good anti weapons for them so they could be taken down easily. But the only bad tihng is if the ork army is all foot sloggers then your lascannons won't be doing much. Which brings up another part. An ork mobile army. Just say that there vehicles won't get close to your's, unless the dice gods don't like you:tongue: .

    orks and nids I would have to agree, more since the other armies might mess your armored force up bad. The IG/Tau would relish playing your army since thats what they do, dish out massive ammounts of heavy firepower which means busting tanks comes natural. Marines can gear up against tanks decent (like an obliterator heavy CSM army), and if not, they are resilient, Eldar have thier bright lance and what not, not to mention other heavy weapons that aren't tank friendly, which leaves nids and orks, which in all lack lots of heavy weapons in favor of going close combat, which is good for your army, especially if the orks are foot sloggers (just hope there aren't alot of tank bustas).

    I have to agree with what hass been said before - Eldar, Tau and IG will take on your tanks easily.

    Your best chance is probably 'nids and Orks. But depending on your opponents' set up you might get some very good results against marines (either flavour), too. Some Khorne armies for example can have a very hard time against an armored assault.
    Shut up and play.

    Advise against

    I'd advise against taking your own stuff or even playing in that thing. They are usually horribly ran and chaotic. If your going to Gamesday its more fun to play in the tournament and get your kicks that way.

    Thank you everyone for the information. However, I do have some bad news. The carpool that was being used to get everyone down there has broken-down and my friends and I will not be participating. Of course, according to the last post, we should thank the Emperor for his divine intervention.
    I've played in some massive club games, and they seemed well run, but GW will likely come in true to form. The info on the tanks is still going to be put to use though in some sly and devious ways...

    Bus

    If you still want to look into going go up to your local GW and see if they are running a bus. I live in NJ and the local GW battle bunker in PA always runs a bus that takes people up there. Its usually like $10 which is way cheaper than gas and tolls.

    None skimmers vehicels will be most damaged by lascannons, while skimmer vehicels will take very little damage.

    AV 10 vehicels will be mauled by assault cannons, regardless of skimming or not.

    The eastiest tanks to kill are: dark eldar, space marines, orcs, sisters of battle, greyknights, imperial guard, LATD, chaos, tau, eldar, necrons.

    And nids dont have tanks.


    Sounds like a really fun battle, good luck!
