Welcome to Librarium Online!
The questions in the title really.
I love playin against my mates Orks. Two Ork armies on the table is brilliant. Just a good honest, balls out, all on the line approach to war. Its cool when there is like HUNDREDS of Greenskins on the table and 90% of em are Krumpin my turn two.
On the other hand, I pretty much hate playin my other friends IG. Well hate, might be a little harsh but the games are very tedious. I'll go get shot at for 3 turns and then Krump with whatevers left and no one claims any objective. Kinda lame. Bloody Umies and their Tanks eh?
Discuss! Who do you Love/Hate playing? Why?
I dislike playing again tau. Their broadsides are ridiculous. Str 10, ap1 and twin linked... 2+ armor saves, and multiple wounds. My buddy usually gets them on the highest elevation terrain, and proceeds to pick out all my AV items one at a time.
Thus I end up having to play a horde army (which I don't like doing) to be competitive. (I'm a walker fan).
Thankfully I havent had the displesure of going up against such an army.
Another army I HAVENT played is Dark Eldar but that is going to change after Xmas! That should be a fun game.
So what armies do you like to play or is it all good as long as they dont shoot up your kanz?
Pretty much everything but tau.
I've played against pretty much every codex except dark eldar and chaos marines so far. I enjoy playing with the nids the most, as its usually a close match, and lots of fun. Due to their insane variety, each game is usually different (like playing against orks).
I haven't had too much of a problem vs IG, as we tend to play multiple player games, at 500-750 points each person, so IG can't really field the tanks necessary to do a ton of damage. At my point range, orks and nids are definitely the strongest groups by far.
Oh I also dislike eldar, due to their warlock/farseer jetbike bs with their double saves.
I enjoy the facing Eldar the most. Their models are cool, and have a lot of variety and different paint schemes for each aspect squad. I like that they really have to coordinate their attacks perfectly to do damage, and that most units has a specialty, particularly aspect warriors. Its always beautiful to see the opponent execute a brilliant attack with his fragile aspects, but its even better to see him screw something up and get engulfed in waves of da boyz.
Any army that thinks they can shoot you to death. IG, Tau and eldar come to mind. They sit there and shoot and shoot and there smile gets bigger and bigger as you take bunches of boyz off....and then you get into CC and wipe them all out cause they can't do jack in combat. The sheer amount of attacks boyz dish out can take out large units of the shooty armies troops.
Repainting Orks not sure how many points yet
Warriors of Chaos shelved until further notice
I love playing against the IG cos they are so bloody t=and they come down t the last dregs of your army trying to claim the objectives. I also like playing space marines cos they can hardly get amy guys so i just swamp them!
