after playing a grand tournment heat i have been pondering what army in the right hands is realy the toughest, (notice i didnt say best, but i have not posted this thread hoping to start an argiment about cheese armys.
IMO there are just a few candidates for this, Eldar cheese 3 raith lord, seer counsel coming out of every orrofice etc..., space marines stand back and shoot everything with great weapons,loads of tanks including dreadnaughts and 5 man tactical squads, or posibly necrons with tooled up lord and monolith to re role failed get back ups when they pass back through them.
i think that the necron army may be the hardest to get rid of but possibly not the best.
what do you guys or girls think?
Necrons with 2 lords and 3 liths. Simply mean:cry:
infantry- based iG. you come with lascannons, he puts down guardsman.
I'm actually not in my sixties. For some obscure reason, my age is set 50 years older than what it actually is.
Also known as Jianaran
Thousand sons. Fearless marines with two wounds each.
Necrons get my second vote, but anyone who thinks adding three monoliths to any reasonably sized list makes them tougher is a moron--they're nuts when they have hordes of guys on the table. Monoliths just make them easier to phase out--not worth it at all.
Simply put Tyrinids you get one maybe 2 turns of shooting and then bang assault.NOOOO
so many bugs no spay awwww.Yes i admit necrons are scary but you pop the troops or get into close combat and thats the end of them.Eldar my god Ulthwe is scary they come out no matter what and are just beastes when they get out.
i personally fear Tyranids the most i know all say kill synapse theyle die or flamers nooo doesent work they just keep coming.

For me 'crons first (they are tough...damn 'well be back' rolls ) . The AC (armoured company) are equal with the necrons, especially when your army is balance and not tailored to go against 10 tanks :sleep:
2nd would be a all infiltrating all fast nid army - a broodlord infiltraing with retinue, all genestealers having the scouting/scuttlers ability. expensive army, but can get into cc the first turn when the nid player goes first, with lucky fleet or claw rolls
3rd would be a saim hain army...although fragile, they are bloody hard to hit them in shooting and in cc.
Note: these are not cheesy (in fact i dont call anything cheesy other than 3 wraithlords in a 750-1000 pt list) and have major weaknesses, but they are certainly tough to beat.

for opinion on how to beat them see my first post in "SM v's nids- need advice"
i personaly dont fear nids at all but it deepends on the army you have.
I think you all are underestimating necrons after hearing the tactics to just phase them out. Normally missile launchers will ignore wbb but a lord with resecction orb can bring them back further. Going through monoliths would allow them to roll wbb 5 times!
The only time I've played against Eldar was in a quick 400 pt match played at my friend's GW store in Chicago that introduced me to the game. I played against an experienced player, all jetbikes, and I got my black templar butt handed back to me right quick. Not that I was surprised, that should've happened not matter what we were playing. Otherwise, I've no real idea what to expect from Eldar, though it seems like many people fear them.
The army I lose to the most -- like, almost every time -- is mech space marines just like the intial post layed it out: tanks and more tanks, dreadnoughts and more dreadnoughts, small tactical squads with special weapons. Way too many weapons and armor to deal with. HATE THEM!!
Even a weapons- and tanks-heavy imperial guard isn't as tough as that. At least against them I win about 50% of the time.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
