Default Re: How can i Win!!!!!

You opponents list is better. Troops win games not uber units. He can shoot you from a far on his own terms and you can't out gun him in a fire fight, so all you can do is walk across the battlefield and get shot.

Uber characters aren't much good unless they get into combat. And with a single rhino facing off against lots of heavy weapons he doesn't stand a chance.

So what can you do?
Firstly you must roll for mission and level. This gives your force a slim chance of playing in a game they're good at. Gamma level cleanse with you with the first turn is right up your street. 18" with a 12" rhino move, get out behind your rhino and hide from his guns and then assault him next turn is ideal. Recon gamma/escalation is good for you. You can d/s your terminators into his deployment zone. He has nothing that can reach your lines. Escalation games will see his dread kept off the board and your rhino off the board.

In all games (except Alpha level) you should deepstrike your terminators for the simple fact if he doesn't direct some attention their way they'll munch up his battleline. That extra attention he has to spend dealing with them means your rhino and possessed have a turn of breathing space. So first 2 turns of movement waiting for the terminator diversion should be moving your units behind area terrain. Keep them hidden from guns. Then turn 2 or 3 when the terminators arrive break your cover and give him a real problem. He'll have to shoot the terminators meaning your troops can make it across no mans land.

Don't want to buy more stuff and correct your awful list?
Ok instant fix with no cost, but a bit of work. Possessed in the rhino and make a dreadclaw assault pod for your marines. Modified flowerpot with spikes, fins and spikey bits, and deepstrike the CSM unit along with the terminators who are teleporting. This will give your enemy real headaches having the enemy land right on top of him while he is trying to deal with the possessed in the rhino.

Your opponent will have to agree to the use of the imperial armour unit you wish to field though.
