my friend just deployed his first genestealer force(with 3 zoans). and keeps playing the same army everytime. I KEEP LOSING. im getting very PO'ed about this, and i was wondering if you guys can give me some pointers on his weakness with this army, ill rite the same thread in necrons(bc i play them). we played about 3 games and he always rips me apart! his list...
1 broodlord= 102---- (+1S), (+1sv), implant.
+ 8 retinue= 160---- 4+ armour.
9 stealers= 207 pts.-----scouting, 4+ armour(?)
8 " " = 184 pts.-----scouting, 4+ armour(?)
8" " = 184 pts.---- scouting, 4+ armour(?)
3 zoans = 165pts-----warp blast
we always play for 1000pts and we always play infiltrating, and i think thats his whole force (that seems rite)? Anyway, he always phases my out! so ive come here for some good old help. HES MAKING ME MAD!!!
-you shouldn't have that much of a problem, since you get get 2-3 shooting phases at them.
-just take minimum warriors, a res orb lord, and the rest in immortals or destroyers, since they will anihilate genestealers, as they wound on a 3or2+ and pierce even extended carapace, at long range.
-500pts of destroyers is 10, and they kill 16.6 stealers per shooting phase
-500pts of immortals is 18, and they kill 16 stealers per phase.
-either one should anihilate all the stealers in 2 shooting phases, with a bit of warrior help.
Procrastination- hard work often pays off over time, but laziness always pays off now.
Indifference- it takes 43 muscles to frown, and 17 to smile, but none to just sit there with a dumb look on your face.
-Votewar 40K III= 1st place
-Votewar 40k mini= 2nd place
-Votewar fantasy 2= 2nd place
just so we are on the same page. Its his Broodlord + retinue only that is infiltrating correct? They are the only ones allowed to infiltrate, however they cannot fleet of claw. His other three squads cannot infiltrate, however they do get fleet of claw. Also, if you could send a list of what you have that would help a little bit.

Have a look at my thread about my nid trouble. There you will see how I solved the same problem. After that battle nid's don't scare me unless they bring a horde of MCs :yes:

Seems to me that Immortals/Destroyers should be splendid fun against his army...what with all that AP4 goodness....
I play both 'nids and 'crons and I have only three words to say (in this order):
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
hes a more expericene player so he "knows" things! however this guy wont seeing coming next time!:w00t:
