What army beat you most and have you got your own back on that army?

To say that Marines and Chaos are the same is a joke... likewise for Eldar and DE.

Poll locked.

In my experience, Tau get hammered by Guard... especially when it's me doing the hammering.

My worse losses came at the hands of a guard army loaded with indirect fire and ordianance. Without access to deepstrike, it was impossible to take these heavy hitters out, especially trying to wade through the sea of guardsmen who were simply advancing with flamers and little command squads who can actually hurt Tau in combat.

This was back when Griffons were A-list for Tau extermination. We played small games and 3 griffons always appeared, was so horribly overkill that it usually dominated any army it faced, short of the Necrons.

Necrons, Gauss is a mother.

theyre marines that get back up.......much more dangerous than normal marines.

I've never had much problem with guard but then again I havent played them much :P, the few games I did play were a walkover......infantry < pulse Rifle

Necrons always give me problems too, no matter what army I play, simply b/c they rely on a stupid rule to stay alive. Tactiall, you can be an idiot and still do OK with necrons b/c they are so incredibly resilient. (note: I am not saying all necron players are idiots). It's just not much fun to play them, especially when they show up with a couple of monoliths and a tomb spider. >

dude the more monoliths they show up with the better for you...drasitcally easier to make them phase out :P and tau are the best at taking out monoliths too ;D In my (little) experience its tyranids. Ive only played them a few times and against a half assemblled army, but i just didnt realise how fast they were. Against tyranids i found it actually inevitable combat was going to happen, all i could do was prolong it for a while. If new rules for tyrandis (so ive heard) are going to make the big 'uns even more powerful then they are force to be reckoned with versus tau. At least versus my army that is!

I find DE a walkover myself, MP's pop all the Raiders on the first turn (w/ rail backup) and the game is over.

but yes, the monolith only makes the game easier :P, more monoliths = easier phase out.
