is there any way in which DE can beat the imps? The massive numbers of guns just blow away things like ravagers, youre only chance is to get up close, and theres not much chance of that!
:ph34r: :a 8| < :huh: <_< :unsure: :blink: Okay here is what i think.
First thing forget what you've heard about scourges.
done okay a scourge unit with 4 splinter cannons firing into ig can be devastating especially with 3 of them and a succubus armed with terrofex or xenospasm lets you get another shot at them and they can't shoot you.
3 squads of reavers with shredders and again fexes/spasms can help alot and both of these units stop guard from shooting at your lance squads blowing up their tanks.
Hq this is the one army that you fight against that is better to use 3 heamonculus on foot with destructers and a couple of grotesques. Major advantage is the ig with heavy wepons would be tied up by your scourges/reavers and most of the tanks destroyed by sniper squads so the only people left are the ig with flashlights that can't hurt you.The heamons weps will also be more useful than a archon cc attacks becuse instead of having a chance to take out 5 you can take out an entire template full then a load of cc attacks.
The main key to defeating ig are scourges, reavers and fexes/spasms because they hold them up.
Imagine guard being stopped from shooting every turn because their command squad was destroyed and they keep failing saves. :rolleyes:
You could try a Webway Portal. Either have 3 Haemonculi, each with a squad of 20 warriors marching up the field and then at some point when you are close enough drop the Webway Portal. Either that or give it to someone in a Raider and rush it up. Sit a turn and drop it. Then bring out Raiders with Wyches in it. Hop 12" then drop them and assault. Of course to do this you'd have to be out of their line of sight...
Or a squad of 9 grotesques with a haemonculus zipping across on a raider imune to small arms can detach from unit. can hold own ground against assalt cheaper than 20 warriors faster than 20 warriors
