How do u beat daemon hunters simple question what do people hae in experiecne for playing these things?
Not too much experience against them personally, but when i used to play against them i just used similar tactics as i did against many armies. What list do you play with, what other models do you have available, and what problems are you having with them specifically?
I used to play a DH player on a regular basis and he always had problems with both of my armies (Necrons & Tyranids).
Against Necrons, the DH worst disadavantage is model count. There's so few of them that each and every one lost is a serious blow, and against the 'deathless machines' that becomes a serious liability. As the Necrons' greatest chance for victory lies in a battle of attrition, this plays counterpoint right to the DH army's weakness. Another (lesser, but still important) vulnerability tends to be that a lot of DH players rely on heavy armor to run their skirmish line, and against Necrons tanks tend to disappear quite quickly.
Against Tyranids, you tend to run into similar issues with DH lists. A mixed force of swarms and TMCs tend to give DH armies fits. Firstly, they just don't have good enough heavy weapons (aside from their vehicles) to really deal with the bigger bugs, so there's one thing. Aside from the occasional vehicle mounted lascannon, psycannons and that flamer they have just don't cut it against Carnifexes and Tyrants. Secondly, you again run into the issue of model count. One of the biggest strengths that dedicated DH troops have is their assault capacity, but that becomes quite diluted in the face of dozens and dozens of Gaunts. A horde of Spinegaunts isn't going to do much to a group of DH standard Marines or Terminators, but what they WILL do is lock them in combat for a long long time. More than enough time to get Genestealers or other more dedicated assault broods into position to either counter assault them or to just ignore the issue for the time being and focus on squads that aren't in combat yet. After that, it's just a matter of sweep, mop, and go home
As Phoenix said, I'm not sure what lists you are running, or even what army(s) you play with, but there's always a way. That being said, if you play Chaos, you are going to have to work very very very hard to earn that win. DH are tailor-made to destroy Chaos armies, and there's just no real way of getting around that. Of course this is just a general observation on my part as I do not play Chaos, but I'm sure some of the Chaos players around here can give you some pointers on how to minimize your weaknesses and maximize your advantages against a Daemon slaying force.
Hope this helped
I played them twice, and faced two landraiders, and around 12 gey knights(6 x2), hq and 6 grey knight termies.
The landraiders were glaned into oblivion and the squds inside never made it to my lines.
The termies teleported in and ripped into my lines. I took them down with weight of numbers though.
The second game his landraiders weren't stopped by my guass at all ( curse you machine spirit). Then his 12 grey knights jumped out andripped my 30 warriors a new one.
By the time I had him whittled down then the termies came in and cleaned up the rest of my warriors and lord.
It was a dazzaling defeat to 19 guys to my 30 warriors, lord, scarabs monolith and immortals. I know people say dice aren't to blame, but I made all of 5 we'll be back rolls. That is right 5!! It was amazing how many hit and wound rolls he made. I never had so much fun losing before. Especially after whipping up on him a few weeks ealier.
So numbers should be in your favor if he is playing pure grey knights. Every troop model they lose is good since they run around the cost of an immortals (i believe around that if not more ). The termies are even more expensive. Weight of fire worked once for me and not so well a second time. So we are looking to throw down again in a few weeks since both games have been pretty one-sided each time, but they were really so much fun. Weird huh?
