Heya,

Can't really tell you anything since we don't know what happened in the game. From first glance, I'd say your list is just fine. Sounds to me like some poor choices in game were made or some really awful dice rolls. He has two skimmers, and you have a few autocannons, exorcist and lascannon, so you should have been able to silence that thing out relatively well. The Reapers and FireDragons certainly can put on the pain, but you had long range guns too and could have done the same thing in return. The avatar is a problem in assault, so no way around that except to avoid it. If you were shooting things that were shooting you, really, you shouldn't have had much problems, or at least had a close game.

So describe what really went wrong. What did you do with your units? What shot what specifically if you can recall?

Final note: When facing Eldar, drop the Heresius and get a Psychic Hood & Excrutiators on the Inq (always).

Cheers,

well he blew a chimera right away and the guardsmen were stuck for a while. i couldn't get very good line of sight for my tanks. my inquisitor did wonders he killed a whole thing of guardians and some rangers. my exorcist blew up pretty quickly.


i think i just need some good tactics. because honestly i have no idea what to do with this army.

Well I'm not sure either. I think your list looks great.

But your list is based on being mobile but with his skimmers he is faster then you. So start with taking his skimmers out. Stay back with deployed guard and keep your rhinos in cover. Shoot one skimmer at a time with all long range weapons.. When they are done for you can go about your buisnness ie. driving up in rapidfire range and taking out one squad at a time.
Good luck!

Personally i like seraphim, Jump infantry can move 12 and assault 6 which is always good, the rhinos and chimera dont allow you to move fast and then assault which is what eldar are allergic to, give them inferno pistolsand they effectively can stoot any eldar tank stupid enough to think its safe
