Default What's your basic stratagy?

Basicly what do you like to do with your (current/main) army? All out Assault, All out Shooting, ect.

If you want, comment why or if you have any tricks you like to play, post away, unless of course you wan't to keep them a secret

Basically, my line advances slowly, to no-man's-land, then taking cover and establishing a firebase. They proceed to shoot up anyone that gets close. Then, while they begin to advance, a large amount of my close combat troops deep strikes in, mainly to the side but occasionally behind their army, cutting off the escape route. By this point, the tanks will have been shot and killed, the commander will be killed (as they are normally placed in the back), and all that is left is to surround the infantry and crush them to bits. Of course, this is general, and rarely does it play out perfectly. Most of the time I have to adapt to their movements, but there are those occasional times where it is an all-out slaughter...

I use a Necron army, we advance and shoot everything with Gauss. My C'tan plays goaly and prevents the enemy from engaging us in close combat.

I play IG, so I try to do most of my damage in the shooting phase. I do have counter charge units becuase most people try and charge me. Also if my opponent is a shooter I try to assualt him with my counter charge units. So I'm shooty player with a close combat in mind.

Arcadia got it right, as far as I'm concerned. Shoot. Shoot. Shoot. Shoot. Counter Assault. With Roughriders and Heavy Weapons teams, guard really can have it all!

I simply move around, trying to keep my units out of charge range, while shooting the biggest threats with all of my army's might.

As you may have guessed, I play Tau.

Default Re: What's your basic stratagy?

My strategy revolves around fast, precise movements of units, out maneuvering the opponent, and hitting points that are critical and weak. I go into deeper forms of strategy as I use the Tau's apparently static nature to put them in a false sense of security, and the rarely seen (in my parts) Sky Ray and Piranha to confuse and set my opponent off balance. Further I will play mind games. Remind them that I have long range strength 5 weapons everywhere, a seeker can hit him for anywhere (and he will never stop it).
Oh I have lots of fun with the psychological aspects of this game. ;D

I play Tau and I identify targets, isolate them, get just close enough, AND DESTROY THEM!!! MWAHAHAHAHA! Er... I mean for the Greater Good?

Have a big load of fast stuff charge down the flank of my choice, taking out the most shootiest units. The slower elements move up the depleted flank and engage in combat. The heavier stuff just pounds away all game until the enemy is forced to move to take them out.

When the final charge comes everything is shown to the enemy, presenting him with just too many targets to take out.
