What kind of army would work best against Witch Hunters in 2000 points? Keep in mind that he will likely also be tooling his army against Tyranids... I know he typically takes alot of flamers and heavy bolters, so I had been considering going Godzilla but I would need to buy a new fex or two, and that's alot of money....
I have all other models available except gargoyles, which I will not buy due to the cost.
What's the consensus?
Go ask witch hunters if you havnt already! Seriously, thats the best way to find out what a player is scared of facing!
Personally id take a fairly shooty army, and have a good mix of swarm/MC's.
NEVER let a penitent engine near you! and take out as many flamers as you can, then strike with stealers. Rav's, Sniperfex's and zoans will help you here. Lictors will also be useful, take 2 or 3 if you can. If you can get them to strike at the same time as the stealers your laughing. Rends and 3+ hits for non rends will work wonders. Or use the lictors for tank busting when your fex's fail to hit. As always, have a good synapse web. Zoans and Tyrants are a must, warriors may die a little too soon to be relied on. Also Id take a mass of spine gaunts over hormies. If you get across the table too fast, your flamed, go slower and you face heavy bolters. Spinegaunts are perfect for soaking up this kind of punishment without you losing many points.
Hope that helps.
it kind of depends on how he plays witchunters, the classical all sister drive by flamer army with exorcist support will spell pain for a nidzilla or more traditional assault based nid army but it is not by anymeans undefeatable for the latter
Shooty lists will probably be good, but against a foot slogging sisters army there is a horrible amount of bolter and heavy bolter death they can rain down on you
but then he could also have a more =][= and IG based list, any idea?
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I really don't know what he uses... He did say he likes to keep it pretty balanced though, meaning he tries not to spam anything in particular. He said there are lots of flamers and tons of Str 6 shots, but I don't know what he means by Str 6 because I thought they had lots of Heavy Bolters and they're STR 5.
I think he might use a few IG tanks, but I don't think he uses many (if any at all) IG troops.
