I was mostly referring to the Vanguard as a counter to the All-Star team once they were dropped off from their transport, but now that I think about it, all those All-Star guys have a higher Initiative than the Vanguard anyway, so there goes that idea.

Yeah, no matter what ideas I keep coming up with, I keep defaulting back to my Baneblades as well as 'Sheer Dakka. Pour fire into them and pray they start failing invulnerable saves.'

How about Howling banshees? A big squad, high int and all PW.

Reaver would slaughter them in a turn without trying. Laser Blaster, Vortex Missile, some other random weapon. Laser Blaster blasts the Stormraven to bits, drop a Vortex Missile on the supersquad. Try surviving that, Termy Armoured n00bs! . I much prefer 6 Phoenix Lords, Yarrick, Blue Scribes, Fateweaver, Swarmlord, and Inquisitor Lok in a Thunderhawk! Loks retinue will have to wait behind!
because power armour is like a metal skull plate - sure you're tough, but your stupid too. :P

With the stormraven , it will be soon that the titan will smell the cheese. And remember....a simple scout squad wwith a teleporter homeer can make this soo much more assholey. :P

and that is excluding the Apoc strategems. *cackles like a madman* >

You know, that would be a good matchup, but the wounding and hitting would be tough.

I'm telling you guys. Take a Warhound or two, or a single Reaver or something, with the points cost of that uber unit. It will splatter it across the board. :P

2 warhounds would be the better choice. sure they can drop behind one of the titans, but the other ones there to make them eat plasma.

People who do this should be forcibly sterilised.

What would I do if I encountered this in an Apocalypse game? Remind myself this is one of the reasons I don't play Apocalypse and run, not walk for the nearest exit!
