Welcome to Librarium Online!
i was jst wondering what you guys come up against most at your local store's?
SPACE MARINES!!!!!!, bloody Spacemarines all the time and if its not spacemarines...gues what.... its Chaos spacemarines
Army of the heavens, my army waits in hell
To battle on the earth, for all the souls who fell
It is a sad fact. i find 80% of people have SM, and i am one of them, however i do branch out into eldar and necrons. A bit of variety would be appreciated. You can only have so many Sm V. Sm before you think, surley these guys should be fightin aliens not themselves.

"Over there, by that river of boiling souls."
"Well I'll be damned... it's a Starbucks."

SM...The very day I bought my first army..(Tyranids if you haven't guessed)
In fact I was still in the mall..A friend from school who I found out played SM took one look at my models and called them evil...
and guess what? he's right Bwahahahaha
My first army was UltraMarines. Yup I am another person who plays Space Marines. Oddly enough I started Tyranids. Anyway my friends around me play Black Templars, Tau, Necrons, and Eldar. The most problems I have are with the Necrons againsts my poor Gaunts. They need a 4+ to hit, 5+ to wound, the Necron player has to fail a 3+ save, and then he gets a 4+ Inv save. Grrrr, makes me real mad. He fields a lot of warriors, like 36 in a 1000 point battle Im quite sure. I usally eat the living flesh off the Templars and Eldar, exept when the Eldar has a Wraithlord!!! That thing is cheaper than my Carnifex and so much better. It has 2 more toughness and better I. Railguns are bad. They are Ord. Blast and make my anything that i field turn into mush. But once I get into close combat its all over, if they ever get there.
I started with Ultramarines also but after going to the store a couple of times I noticed that there were 7 other space marine players(ranging from chapter to chapter). So I immediatlly stoped and sold them in order to start a new army, the IG. Not only could I usually win against them but this made it so that other new players can see other armies playing styles instead of just SM, because if a new guy came all he would see would be SM. After that I did 'crons just to be like The Terminater .

in my town mostly the standard sm and csm. but i have nids guards and tau. so there is always a variety. plus i joined a club that has sm, crons, csm, orks,and dark eldar. but the plroblem multi armies is i'm always out of cash and not enough troopers.
i dont usually hav the same army to come against
at my local store there are:
2 world eaters
1 impie guard
1 dark eldar
1 flesh tearers (blood angels)
1 blood angels
as you can see, there are a variety of players i have played all of them once and lost to the dark eldar. oh well, i will have to challenge him this sunday
"Tasty-flesh-in-hard-shell-prey" seem to be most common here as well... If not them, then "Funny-tasty-flesh-in-hard-shell-prey". SM and CSM....
But I've seen Tau "Tasty-flesh-in-shell-with-nasty-guns-prey" , Necron "Annoying-shell-with-no-flesh-prey", IG "Munchy-squishy-tasty-flesh-prey" armies, Eldar "Tasty-frail-flesh-in-frail-shell-prey", and that's pretty much it... Kroot "Tasty-tastes-like-avian-flesh-prey" has been as part of Tau. Oh, SOB "Munchy-squishy-tasty-flesh-in-hard-shell-prey" has been sighted.
No DE "Tasty-frail-flesh-in-spiky-frail-shell-prey"or Ork "Tasty-spongy-tough-flesh-prey" as of yet. Nor Daemonhunters "Gleaming-tasty-flesh-in-hard-shell-prey". Forgetting someone...? Guess any I forget aren't played around here.
Oh, and there are other Tyranid "Tasty-flesh-in-crunchy-carapace-prey" as well. =) Dare turn their swarms against the one true Hive Mind, would they?!!
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
I haven't met Sisters, DE and Kroot, but apart from that I think I've seen the galaxy. Ate a fair bit of it too.
In answer to the second question, I have most trouble against Orks. Partly fighting trouble, partly trouble moving all those troops about the board (about 60+ models each in a 1000pt game).
