I was wondering, as a nub to most races in the 40k universe coming up against an army I don't recognise daunts me a little as there are many powerful units with very strong abilities that are sometimes taken for granted and not mentioned by the player at the start of the game.
That being said is there anyone that wants to add a squad or unit and its particular abilities that should be watched during a game for their inherent ability to sway one way or another so rapidly?
Death company with jet packs led by a chaplin. How i hate that unit.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
Any Imperial Guard tank with a big gun -_- especially that Basilisk >.> its AP means it'll punch through any armour, and will even give tough vehicles like the 'raider a rough time being ordnance.
Iron Swords 3rd Company - We are the swords which reap the bodies of our foes.
Train of thought will be terminating at.. edible murder weapons!
3x Wraithlords for Hvy Support all hiding in ruins next to Eldrad.. fortune 2x + doom, each turn.
well maybe im just bitter and its not cheese....
Space Marines -- Black Templars -- 2300pts
Imperial Guard -- Steel Legion -- 1800pts
One unit I find particularly annoying to deal with is a full retinue for a fully tooled-up Chapter Master, with a fully tooled-up Chaplain, and a fully tooled-up Librarian. There are way too many invulnerable saves in there, and not much can beat them in combat.
A common measure of effectiveness where I play is how many points something is. "How much are they?" "150 pts" "Oh ok". Then they take out unit X which costs much more.
Most people don't seem to think they hit that hard. Most forget just how versatile they are.
Don't underestimate them.
Get to know the player because a unit that doesn't seem to particularrly useful may not be, but if used properly and supported well almost any unit can be considered cheesey. Especially if the other player has never played the opponents army.
Just something to consider.
