Default Which army do you prefer to play against?

Hey guys, just trying to get a feel for everybodies favourite army to face off against. I'm thinking of starting a new army and I wanna know the one that everybody loves to beat.

(Sorry if this has been raised before.)

Yes a good opponent makes for a good game but there has got to be an army you really like to put the smackdown on or just find fun to fight. Mine are the 'Nids purely because my most rivaled opponent plays them.

I like fighting Chaos. They are normally easy for my armies to beat. They are like Space marines but there is less of them!

I like beating orks played about 15 games against them I only lost 1 (stormboyz darn assult marine movement and fire warrior WS) but all you need to do is take Fire Knifes or Deathrains and Pulse Rifles they drop like flies then

You have obviously been playig a bad ork then.

My fave enemy to play against is space marines - I love the air of invincibility that comes with the power armour. And I love it when they take min/maxed squads - so easy to mob.



Plus theres the added bonus that their helmets come in bright and cheery colours :funny:

I love playing guard, as my Chaos can hit 'em where it hurts!

We have superiority in close combat, and have the meltaguns/ Lascannons/ Plasma weapons/ Havoc launchers to deal with their tanks, and also, have the boltguns that pierce their armor. :rockon:

Fighting fire with fire :P

Space Marines. They feel superior but the thing is it only takes a little to counter them.

One of the guys at my store offers his advice: Tailor your army to fight marines.

Why? Because Marines means:
Marines (duh)
Chaos Marines
Sisters
Necrons
Crisis Suits (and if you eat 3+ saves then you can eat 4+)
Aspect Warriors

And that's about 80% of all 40K players.

As I explained to a Tyranid player I faced with my Eldar (first battle I played with my Eldar in ages, deployed refused flank, I'm shooty, slaughtered him) when my Dark Reapers were annihilating his Genestealers and Gaunts - if he was a Marine player, he'd already have lost. Because my Reapers would take out exactly the same amount of Marines as they did Nids, but a Marine player would have significantly less Marines to lose.

If you tailor to it, you can have an army that eats 3+ saves. You may not have enough guns to slaughter hordes of Orks or Nids but... the majority of the armies you face aren't Orks or Nids. And you tend to do quite well, as the above battle shows =)

Edit: Actually, I'll write that up as a Battle Report maybe... it might be fun...

No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...
