Have you ever been attacked by a huge hoard of flying daemons with super high initiative, high strength, and excellent weapon skill??
THEY ARE JUST PLAIN ANNOYING! ALMOST AS ANNOYING AS MY JET PACK TACTICS!!!
No matter what I do, none of my infantry, or battlesuit units are safe! Chaos summoned "Furies" can move 12'' after being summoned, and then assault 12''! I've lost whold fire warrior squads and even battlesuits to these awful things. Only my skimmers are safe...... I can't seem to defeat these beasts. They are not technically reserves, or deep strikers, so they can't be banned in small games, and the fact that they can move and assault after deploying often ruins great tactics like FISH OF FURY and CRISIS JUMPING.
WHAT CAN I DO???? :blink: :hmm:
I hate Daemons, the fact that they can move after being summoned is nigh on fricking annoying. That said, they can be funny, like when a DaemonPrince gets smacked down by a trio of broadsides (buyaah).
Anyways, daemonpacks summon off of icons, so taking those models out that carry the icons should help. Of course, chances are, if you're playing a competent player he'll have tons of icons littered about the field. In that case, just keep your troops in their DF's, hide suits in cover, and suck it up.
Daemonbomb armies are a right pain in the keister. One solution to taking out one of the icons, of course, is to send out a team or two of crisis designed for icing Marines, or a Fireknife team. Either way, concentrate your fire.
Of course, if your opponent gets them on the field, your best chance is to hope he summoned them far enough away that he can't reach assault with them, or hide in cover so you at least get to hit first. Not like it'll help much; everyone gets to be a hero against Tau.
If you're supposed to be a Goth, where were you when we sacked Rome?
