I say chaos. The khorne bezerkers I've fought are great at close combat, they ignore regular saves, etc. And, they have the option of moving 30 inches in one turn. Allowing them to get close up REALLY fast. They have a 3+ regular save, and incase thats blocked, or failed, they get a 4+ invulnerable save. Allowing them to only lose... 1 or 2 beserkers per turn to my whole squad of firewarriors. 1-2 out of 8 in a 400 point match. so they get up real close, with 5-6 troops still left. The only reason I won that match was because my commander got 4 lucky hits in CC, and an invulnerable 4+.

I have the most trouble with the Eldar. They can do everything we can but better. Necrons can be picked apart with some ease. Witchunters are also a pain for me. Masses of tough infantry makes for a real pain some times.

Tau. It's totally unfluffy to fight another tau player, but it happens. Since I played a noob who just mirrors my moves and attacks. I never got a clear shot at him. I guess the noob can also say the same about me...

Tau vs Tau is just brutal. Its like a sumo match, a flurry of speed and power... who ever comes out of it with the most railguns and markerlights is the winner of the whole game.

Lol. Tau with sumo? Well i kinda agree that thy worst enemy is thyself.

And now for the polls, The cyborgs of doom are leading by 30.8%, followed by a tie for 2nd with Superhumans, Sci-fi elfs and the bugs. For the 3rd place, the trators, Evil elfs and tau themselves.

polls are still open folks.....

khorne berzerker that ignores armour saves, has a 12" move, 12" assault, and 6" blood rage, a 3+ save, an invunerable save... some ones pulling your leg, mate. that thing there is an ilegal daemon prince, not a berzerker.

regular khorne berzerker is a marine with an extra attack, runs d6" towards the enemy on a 1 or 2 and is fearless. oh, and has access to a thing thats like a choppa.... no 30" moves. no power weapons (unless they're champions with access to the armoury) and just a 3+ save.

get the rulebook, and hit your friend over the head with it.

worst race? Hmm. necrons can be powergamed to destroy tau, but this army is not really feasible in a tourney, and there are ways to get around them.
toughest race/ there is none. toughest enemy is that of a lucky general who is extremely competent.

yeah, i now remember me playing at a teaching corner at a tournie and they can't move 30" and also invunerable save dude. you have been punk'd.

The person you're playing with and the way they and you use the army is always the toughest enemy.

But sometimes, an army is somehow primed tokill a particular race unconsciously.
