How do you beat a shooty Biel-Tan list?
There are 6 3-man Reaper squads, 3 10-man Defender squads with Starcannons, Avatar and 3 Wraithlords with Bright Lances.
The Reapers are screened by the Defenders and the Avatar is protected by IC status while with the Wraithlords.
Scream Stilton in his ear and run away......
I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream. That's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight... razor... and surviving.
One tactic ive noticed that works is a bit strageic, get vehicles to screen your devistator squads (armed with missile launchers plasma cannons) lay waste to the guardians, once those are gone go after the reapers (or send in an assault squad) once those are dead, finish off the rest of the army with heavy weapons fire or close combat.
take 2 10 man squads in rhinos and run them across the battle field
take a small squad of scouts and infiltrate and get into cc asap, give the sgt a power weapon
take a full squad of bikes and a full squad of assault marines
If deepstrike rules are used deepstrike the jump pack
consolidation will save you here
give your leader artificer armor and a jump pack and an iron halo(take a librian on a bike with the biker unit)
For the wraithlords, give the troop squads take a lascannon
Invest in a dreadnaught or devastator team with missile launchers and plasma cannons
This is going to be a close combat army, so arm yourself with all the quick moving troops you can get (drop pods will be nice here)
You know what they say, if you dont like the weather in houston...go back to where you came from
Hey, against the Wraithlords I've found a good tactic, wonderful in it's simplicity. lascannons can still miss, or miss the wound..plus tyhat's only one shot a turn. Instead of that use a Scout Squad, Ten Full Sniper Rifles. Always hit ona Two plus, always wound on a four plus, and the chance for multiple wounds to take the CheeseLords otu of the game one at a time. Fior the Dark Reapers...nothing says loving Like a Lascannon or Rocketlauncher. Guardians? Beh..couple of tac Squds to wade thriought he fire..and then our Holy and BLessed bolters pierce and shred their pathetic armor! KLibrarian for the Avatar and Wraithlords will be good too, have him join an assault squad arm hiom witha force Weapiona nd backpack, Voila bunch of dead Huigh cost units, with a relatively easy psychic test.
Havemany fast units forgetting into CC quickly. Also I Have found having 4 small squads with a melta gun and flamer in is great for killing eldar. I mean thier powerful vehicles and many shooty troops.
In the end there is only war.
