I find Eldar the easiest to beat. Hardest for me are biker armies, but that was with my old codex style army.

Hardest for me to neat so far is eldar. While the easiest would be a tie between nidzilla/genstealer tyranids and nurgle choas space marines.

Hardest - Tau
Those battle suits have cost me many tanks and the infantry just shoot me to pieces

Easiest - Necron
this was a tough decision between necron and Tyranid

Just kill the necron lord then str 8 large blast those warriors till they phase out

How do you manage to just snipe out the lord?

Easiest for me personally might be the Tau. I find I can outnumber and outgun them most of the time. The fact that IG has ordnance and lots of anti-tank, and AP 4 makes it easy to eliminate Tau with an all comers list.

Hardest for my IG is any elite assault army, like Templar or Space Wolves. As soon as they get in close they just tear my boy guys to shreds, and the 35 point rhinos give them enough free movement to get in my grille.

Get him on his own, in the first turn destroy his bodyguard (usually 5 immortals) with battle cannons and earth shakers then he is easy

His bodyguard is usually 5 Immortals?? I never see a Lord with less than 10 warriors. I think I'd crap my pants in glee if he was just with 5 Immortals.

Easiest for me is swarm Tyranids. Hardest is probably Necrons. They always roll ridiculous WBB and always get it since I usually can't beat through with enough wounds to put the Lord down.
