Welcome to Librarium Online!
well my friend ive been playing against uses IG and ive been having trouble against his 2 leman russ demolishers... anyone know of anything that might help against them(i have HORRIBLE luck with heavy destroyers and they end up not doing anything so i dont use them )...we play 1500-2kpt games
Massed destroyer fire (REGULAR destroyers, not heavy) + scarabs w/d.fields should have a very easy time popping his tanks. If you're using 5th edition rules you're going to be in a bit of trouble, but if you're still using 4th edition rules there shouldn't be an issue.
Standard destroyers are your best bet, even if you just blow off the cannons your life will become FAR easier. Immobilization is a good start as well.
And res orbs, nothing's funnier than getting hit with a pie plate, having 9 warriors get turned to ash and the next turn having 5 of them standing again, I do it to battlecannons all the time.
How many heavy destroyers are you using?
pfft, two demolishers are nothin'. I've had to fight against around 3 battlecannons in 1k points before, and won with the help of a res orb. i just slowly marched towards him unstoppably while my nightbringer ate his tanks. Destroyers won't get a WBB save against that cannon guys, that's terrible advice.
i believe we are using 5th editon rules from now and i field normally 2 heavy destoryers.... my destroyers normally get ripped up by his infiltrating storm troopers with plasma hopefully if i get first turn next time ill be able to take em down before they shoot at me(he normally gets first turn) and i was thinking of running a c'tan... which one do u think would be better suited??
Brush up on his rulebook imo, something here makes me think you're getting hooped on some part of his list. Lastly, y/n on the 5th edition rule thing, not a lot of grey area here, its one or the other on it.
Use scarabs with DF's. 10 bases i believe will be enough. The only think u have to do is to protect them till they will reach the tanks and then BOOM!!!
