whats peoples answer to a 500pts list made up of two units of plauge marines and a deamon prince of nurgle with wings and gift?
Lots of AP 3. Which is easy. Here's a good list.
Shas'el with plasma rifle, missile pod, and multitracker
Crisis Suit with plasma rifle, missile pod, and multitracker
6 Fire Warriors
6 Fire Warriors
Hammerhead with Ion cannon and Burst Cannons
Hammerhead with Ion Cannon and Burst Cannons
comes right at 499 points.
The entire army you're facing is T5, so you should be wounding on twos with everything but the fire warriors. Daemon Prince with wings is your first priority. Just sit back on your own table edge and shoot him with everything you've got until he dies. If he doesn't, use the fire warriors as a meat shield for your other units. Make sure he charges you. Also, make sure your units are spread far enough apart that he cannont consolidate into another unit after wiping out your fire warriors. So about 4 to 6 inches between units. So after he charges, run away like a sissy to keep him out of combat for your next shooting phase. After he finally dies, you just clean up all the slower plague marines, which shouldn't be a problem considering he can only take 2 units of 7 if he takes a daemon prince with wings and gifts and still stay under 500. With no upgrades. So you should be set.
i agree. AP 2 and 3 is key here, and plasma rifles are very effective, and this would be one of the few times that the ionhead would come in handy.
