Well im headed on my trip in 1 week. going to meet a friend i havent see in like 3 years. And another friend thats lives far away is also coming, so we are going to play some 40k like the good old days. we all have our armies, so i know what races im facing but what im wondering since im really new to the nid army, is there any tactics/strats that u have used vs orks and eldar? maybe some troops i should watch out for? certain matches i should try and make happen??
I have the following models....
2 tryans, 1 winged 1 dual VC
1 carnifex dual VC
6 warriors 2 with VC rest with ST and RC
we will be playing 1500-2000 point battles. i dont need an army list or anything just looking for maybe a FYI or what to look for and what to stay away from....when im fighting these 2 races
If your eldar friend has alot of physics in his army then these will be easy prey to the mind war ability that alot of his physichs have. Send spine gaunts to swarm these guys to create a path for the warriors and tyrant and they should take care of them with those rending claws. The biovores will devastate both of the army's basic troop squads. You might possibly forget the lictors and go for tyrant guards or another carnifex.2 tryans, 1 winged 1 dual VC
1 carnifex dual VC
Good luck on the match!
Get the Avatar and Wraithlords into combat with your gaunts, they'll be stuck there for ages. Snipe out any psychers he may have with your venom cannons and lob sporemines at his troupes. The tanks should be shot at after the psychers are dead, or they should be assaulted by a TMC, or a squad with rending claws. Anything with a gun must be put out of commission, either with gaunts, or just destroyed.
I have no clue about orks, they're one of the 2 armies I haven't played with, nor do I plan to play with.

Against orks, watch out because those ones with the axes can take down a tyrant if there's enough! The warboss should be a piece of cake, just go one on one with your tyrant, and it should be as easy as pie. If you have a dual VC fex aim for those annoying looted tanks! They can get basilisks. After that go for the trucks with your warriors, should be a piece of cake. The best part of an ork army are their boys. :ph34r: Watch out for them and swamp them with spinegaunts.
