Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello everyone, lately ive been playing against a few friends running Marine and tyranid armies.
Against the marines sternguards hellfire rounds eat up my ground troops like theyre nothing and same goes for the stranglethorn and venom cannons on carnifexes and warriors.
Im running an army with sluggas, shootas a warboss and defkoptas atm based on what i own, any tips on what to get to help? or stratagies to undercut their powerful units?
i know mariens hate boom guns on looted wagons warriors hate lots of rockits and carnafexs hate geting shot to death basicly that is the best help i can give you with out seeing a list
You cannot worry about what the other guys bring to the fight. Learn to use your troops well. Spread out. I hate to recommend a KFF, but that might be good for your next purchase.
I agree with Cossack, you should worry less about specific opponents and instead improve your own strategy.
Orks on foot are always going to get cut up by enemy fire pretty badly. That's why I prefer Orks in trukks and battlewagons. Even if they get blown up, if they can get you closer to battle, they'll be invaluable. I'm not saying that your entire army has to be in vehicles, as some Orks on foot might be nice, but I'd definitely have at least 1-2 vehicles in there.
Another suggestion I'd like to add are lootas. Keep them far back and behind cover, and fire away. This will harass your opponent's forces, and draw some fire away from your boyz.
thank you for the replies, and today i plan on going to a store to pickup more boys and a KFF hopefully, ive also been considering teh new 3 pack of killa kanz since i have very few powerful units besides my defkoptas and my boss ( only one of my nobs has a powerclaw so far :c ) currently im sitting at around 550 points with 2 squads of sluggas a shoota squad, warboss, and 3 defkoptas.
I have to tell ya....Kans are pretty powerful. Even if they have to walk on from reserve, they attract a ton of personal energy from your opponent. I used to play with nine, but in my current army restrict myself to three.
Try to get the Nobz box also.
thank you very much for the quick reply, im very tempted by the new box of 3 :x, looking at i can afford, i will hopefully be able to get kanz and a big mek today, but i feel as if i still need more boyz :x, im running with about 31 total (20 slugga 11 shoota)
Deffkoptas are fine, as long as you outflank with them, and run them with guns only, no other options (like bombs or buzzsaws). Serbi's other suggestions are good.
Thank you very much for the help again everyone, yesterday i managed to pick up 10 more shootas a nob with bosspole and power claw. My next purchase is looking to purchase both killa kanz, and maybe commandos ( i really am inclined to at least give them a try ). Thank you again for your time and for your help.
