Please give reasons for why you've voted for whatever you've voted for - I'll add my vote and reasoning later

Edit - I've suddenly realised that I've missed the necrons out.* The 'other' section now means Necrons.

In the handsof a competent commander, anything. But IG can be a real problem. The masses of troops, the masses of guns... if you aren't careful, you wont even see the enemy before you die!

Nid's and Orks have that same effect, but you'll be blasting away and hopefully, the effect won't hurt so much.

I actually really enjoy playing against IG, because you can really get stuck into their troops, so as long as you take care of the armour, you should be fine.

So what army would you say is the hardest to play against?

I don't think any particular army is toughest. It depends on the specific list and palyer IMO.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

I say IG, they have the big guns, (thats all they have) and it hurts. It requires nearly all of your army to be fast, and even then its tough. I still haven't beaten my place's IG player.

I would go with IG as well due to the amount of guns, and possibility of indirect ordinanace.

To be honest, its very easy (well easier than most armies!) to customize an eldar army to combat a specific foe, their units are just perfect for this, so are taking different craftworlds (relativly easy if you have the models and dont care about painting and colours). Therefore the hardest opponenet for eldar really depends on what type of eldar is being played...they vary considerably in their weaknesses and strengths.

Ive never found any foe particularly difficult to face with my Ulthwe, non more so than any other.

I suppose Necrons are quite difficult to deal with due to the high propensity of AP4 weapons (Aspect killing AP) and the Eldar not having all that many S8+ weapons (not in my force anyway).

Yes, I think I'll go with Necrons too, I hate playing against the "We'll be back" rule, the C'tan, and the Heavy Destroyers. :P
