Default The almighty...lasgun?

Not ajoke but this is bane to my enemies. THis tau player almost had a full krrot force but they got shredded to nill in seconds. Then in the same day I fought nids, once again defeated. Am I lucky with rolling or should I attribute my sucess to the lasgun!

It might be related to this:

The Lasergun is not really strong, but compared to the toughness and the low armor of kroot and most of the nids it gives you a good killing rate. Playing against SM woul make it horrorful for you (with only laserguns ).

Mass enough Lasguns and you'll kill practically anything - Grey Knight Terminators are a favourite of mine

Yeah, and if I have enough gretchins i can overrun terra
But you really need many lasguns to kill anything with higher toughness and armor.
In some cases you may be lucky, but in general you won't.

thats most likely why they equate to 6 points per model. Trust me on this there is nothing scarier than 1500pts of guard infantry actually advancing on you, plas and grenade launchers at the ready, backed by LC armed HW platoons, that works out as a lot of infantry!

with lasguns, as stated numbers are everything. however, as soon as your enemies survive those first few turns of fire and get you in cc, its game over. try not to rely on them so much.

Actually it was not all that many of them. Also since I use DH allies, I do not have much to worry about concerning close combat.

CC nothing to worry about for the sacrafice of 1 squad, 2 at max you have enough time to clear the area around the CC meaning the enemy exit it into a kiil zone. Failing that, a) use cover to get attacks in first, or b) give power weapons to your officer's squad (4 vvets + off. w/ power weapons on the charge = chopped enemy) merely pin the enemy in CC and pile in the officers
