    I usually take one "token" heavy destroyer in my army list and he usually manages to make back him points. There are a few different techniques I use with him and wanted to share.

    #1. Fire from the Rear - This is the standard screen him with your warriors and keep him in the back, but in range of you targets.

    #2. Look at Me! - This is when you take him and run him up toward a tank or something that he can take out, if you fail to it isn't a big deal since now your opponent is torn on shooting the one heavy or putting fire into a larger group. People tend to forget about trying to phase you out when they might lose a tank or something important.

    #3. Money in the Middle - Take a squad of 5 destroyers and place them surrounding the heavy. Now no one can see him and shoot at him.


    So what type of things do you do with heavies?

    i usually just keep my hd's at the back of my army. there's always something they can shoot on. main targets are tanks and terminators, and sometimes plague marines.

    I usually take two.

    I often play against a World Eaters friend of mine who takes a Defiler with inderect fire and sits him behind terrain (yes thats right, in a freakin World Eater's army)

    when this happens I take a lord with VoD and teleport them so that they can fire on its back or side armor :lol: (he always forgets I can do that hehehe)

    I usually use my HDs as bait for Khorne Berserkers.
