Okay, i found out today that imperial armies have a type of army called leaf blower. I found it out because I went up against 3 different leaf blower armies, almost each was identical
3 Leman Russ 7 Chimera, and Master of Ordnance in one.
I managed to pop off 2 of the chimeras and terminate the squishy guys inside. But the amount of firepower that it throws out is killer. and something about I can't hit the Chimeras from the side because they are pressed up against each other (they really get a 3+ cover save against the front armor when pressed against another vehicle and you want to shoot their side armor?). he doesn't move them usually till the last turn to grab objectives.
What does I have to do to beat this type or army. one player said space marines have no chance unless the imperial player just gets bad dice rolls. i don't want to believe that. i would like to think that good strategy can go a long way to overcoming bad dice rolls. Any thoughts, suggestions.
