Tanks? You mean those things we don't have?

If you refering to the enemy having tanks, if you get IG you can give them heavy weapons such as missile launchers and lascannons and those can help kill tanks.
If you get two units of IG you can even have a Russ but thats REALLY costly.

For your GKs, The only real way for a GK squad to take out a tank is melta bombs so use those
Or your HQ/Terminator BC can get Hammerhand which brings their strength up to tank crushing level. ;)

There is also the option of Stormies, you can get two squads of those, give them metla guns, give them Rhinos or Chims and have them rush while your Knights teleport in.

Oooh, almost forgot one of my fav units, DREADS! yes, you can get one or two of them and give em lascannons and incins, giving them good long and short range fighting.

Hope that helps.

To deal with the lascannon problem, yea, I'd say get IG or Stormies.
The stormies are the better deal, if you get two squads you can drop your GKs right into the enemy and tear them to pieces in H2H while your Stormies run up/drive up and melta them to death..
But IGs are a good deal too, gives you ALOT more troops for less money and also gives you the option of having three heavy weapons (MLs and Lascannons), They just can't run up like the Stormies and act as more of a firebase.

Or both, thats what i'm doing ;)

Ok........so instead of taking all that troop stuff take a Callidus assasin and send her straght into the enemy devistator of heavy weapon teams. As for tank monted lascannons...............use a tank killing system and dont worry to much. Lascannons onlt get one shot per turn so as long as your human sheild is thick enough you should be fine.

I've had some incredible success with my Callidus against heavy weapon squads. She just bitch slaps those little girls left and right :lol: Dont get me wrong, IG and stormies are great, I just picked some up. But the Callidus works wonders.

I know, the Callidus is great. But if you're feelin lucky, an Orbital Strike takes out those tanks in a hurry.

one of the easiest ways to handle lascannon fire is to drop a squad of gk or gk terms behind the heavy weapons and do your worst!!!!!!

failing that you could use gk men as fast attack and send them straight at the devastators!!

hope this will help someone in a later battle as it often helps me!

I have to agree about the callidus assasin. She works for me most of the time. This is what I do:
I send my callidus assasins straight to the heavy support.
I teleport my GK termies behind the enemy lines.
Using the termies and assasins for distraction, I bring the rest of my army to the enemy to finish the job.
Orbital strike depends on terrain. I f there is very little terrain, it has little or no use.
