Welcome to Librarium Online!
There was this guy that plays a 1750 point list iron warrior that passed at my gw he said it was the first and last time he came there for maybe 2 years cause he was in vacation here but that wasn't the prob, the prob is I can't beat him, we played two games and got massacred... phased out on turn 2 or 3 and i just dunno how to beat him...
Here is about his list:
lord : expensive with a whole **** load of stuff
Leuitenent: expensive 2 and a kai gun
2 squads of 5 CSM and 1 lascannon
4 defilers inderect fire...
i know i'll never play again but what if another guy has such a list at a tourny..
you should use many sacarb swarms with d-feilds to take out his defilers
after that I don't know what to tell you
what tactics does he use
Aren't Defilers and Obliterators bothe HS? Even IW don't get 7 HS slots :wacko:
I'm no chaos player, so I don't know. Oblit's might be Elites.
Regardless, what you need is a hearty helping of Destroyers :yes: and Scarabs
With the Scarabs, I would rush up and assault his Oblit's as soon as possible. I suggest units of 7 or so swarms if you have them. Meanwhile, the Destroyers can take his Defilers apart piece by piece. You might also want some Immortals to go after the Defilers as well, but Destroyers will do it more easily. Remember that Defilers aren't that heavily armored. You might even want to load up on some Heavy Destroyers and play his little HS game too.
Something you should probably not do is take the Monolith. With all of that high S weaponry in his list, it'll have a lower chance of survival than usual.
And finally, remember your Mission Objectives! He has a very small army with a lot of points sunk into ICs who never count as scoring units. If your goal is to capture stuff, just veil right on over to it and sit there. So few shots per turn won't unseat you with proper Res. Orb coverage. :shifty:
Obliterators are Elite
But to the point we have 2 of these guys at the club and the best way to beat them is destroyers and scarabs to take out his Obliterators and Defilers, use the Scarabs to tie the oliterators in CC for a round and shoot the F*ck uot of his Defilers.
Then use concentrated fire to whipe out the Obliterators and keep mobile

Oh God, seems like you have 2 powergamer IW, the kind of people that give IW such a bad name, with his list he'll have limited mobility so this is something you should take advantage off, play with a decent amount of scenery or with objectieves.
Destroyers and scarabs are vital for taking down his heavy firepower.
