We all have one, one army that just plain annoys the hell outta you.
I know i do - Nids, so many gribblies.
So please share what is your least favorite opponent and why?
Lucky Hats- Is there anything they can't do?
Only as tough as Marines, but with lower numbers. However have a constant "night fighting" rule cutting down the occasional gauss volley, and their immense power in CC make them very difficult to face. Tomb Spyders and scarabs are all but helpless against them (WS 5 S6 2A each) so counter charging doesn't really work either. Also they all have assault guns (storm bolters or better) making shooting a still-dangerous spot.
Oh right and they're all fearless. C'tan don't help since they have weapons that ignore Invuln save at range and can still wound (though on a 6) with 36" and heavy 3 a few volleys take down C'tan before they can get anywhere. At least wraiths got their armor saves now >>.
I've faced GK...10-12 times and never come close to winning a game against them.
Yeah CC heavy armies are brutal, even worse if they're FAST to get into CC!
Black Templar, Deamons, etc. I haven't found Nids, but I would assume same issue but worse because of the horde factor.

worst army to face against is saim hiang eldar there the really fast ones with totaly souped up falcon and a seer counsle with doom and fortain and wich blades and eldrad.
I kill you i win. You kill me you lose
Least favourite.... gotta be Nids.
Just cannot seem to take out those MC's in time, and with maybe two turns of shooting, but the little ones fleet of clawing toward you...
Its not gooood.
I agree with both Wraithcore and Alzer; the Tyranids and Grey Knights are both total bears to play against. My one buddy who got me into Warhammer plays both those armies, so you can imagine what it was like being a total noob and trying to fight an experienced player commanding both those armies. (I definitely questioned my army choice a few times!)
Now, I've come pretty close to beating the GK with some clever overloading of Gauss fire and well timed Monolith moves. As for Tyranids, it's hardly ever close! My friend runs a total CC army; his Hive Tyrant's gun is the ONLY gun in his entire army. With the Hormagaunt's fleet, leaping, beasts, swarm-the-crap-out-of-Necrons abilities, it's only a matter of time before you're swamped.
So yeah, Tyranids and Grey Knights are easily my least favorite opponents.
Id have to say nids hands down. for all the reasons above....to much cc and we are screwed. Which is kinna weird when you look at the fluff between necrons and nids.
Don't mess up our fluff GW!
I don't like to play marines. Mostly because i doesn't really fancy them. I most often find them quite ugly...
i feel like we should spawn a new thread:
how to beat very CC heavy armies
