We have a least favourite thread going, but how about hearing some of our favourite army builds or races we have faced over time.


Mine...I dunno. Maybe an overpriced DE army. I love that guy who thinks taking an fully kitted out Archon and 9 Incubi at 1000pts is gonna win him the tournament.........Not in that paperplane it aint LOL

I like to play with and against "elite" armies. Deathwing, Ork Warbikers - have those, love those (especially since they are big middle fingers for "meta" gamers). Also like (and would like to have) Sanguinary Angels. Dunno, maybe less models means they are actually painted?

Also anything "competitive", since I like to prove netlists without playtesting/tatcics are wrong (hey GK bandwagoners!). Big supporter of "customised" lists here.

Any list that puts up a good fight and doesn't hunker down in transports parking-lot style. Chaos players are usually game for a good aggressive fight.

My favorite opponent is Eldar, it's never a dull match.

Damn, I would love to play against Eldar, but at the LFGS there are only two players: One of them mumbles about being scared of my army and finds an excuse not to play it, and the other is...me. Seems like it would be a great scrap though.

I love to play against orks, there is so much humour in that army.

It's a great matchup. They almost equal us in speed, there's some exciting interplay between their melee specialists and our own ( Incubi stomp Scorpions, Banshees stomp Incubi, Wyches stomp Banshees). There's awesome fun in Archon vs. Farseer and Autarch interplays. Their Wraith units hate us, we hate their scatter lasers, and Warrior squads sans boats suddenly become functional assault troops versus a handful of Guardians or Pathfinders.

I've never had a boring or bad match with original kin vs. craftworlders - you've got to make it happen for yourself.

I have good games against everyone else, or at least I don't get consistently stomped by one other army, but I do agree about the cousins. Lots of high speed dashing and jinking, very strategic, with huge varieties in combatants and potential match-ups. Probably my favourite as well.

Codex Marines. The people fielding them all seemed to know their armies very well, making for smooth, fast-paced games, and they're certainly up for a dirty scrap!

I'm sold. Looks like I'll have to make it happen.

I'd say Eldar as well. It's pretty interesting seeing how our armies differ. Plus being able to say "I'm faster than you" to an Eldar player that's not used to playing against DEldar is too funny.

I'll have to go with the flow again here. I love playing against our craftworld kin, they're normally very fun, very close, and very bloody games.

But to be honest, if I've got an oppenent who is more there for the fun than the win, I'm a happy man.

As much as I may bitch about them, I actually prefer playing against Tau. It provides an interesting challenge, to say the least...

I haven't played a game with DE yet, but I concur with Local_Ork that I love playing against anything that is not meta...though I do enjoy bashing a netlist with better tactics (and sometimes dumb luck) using Flash Gitz and Meganobz Smile

I haven't played a huge amount of games with my Dark Eldar but the two opponents that I have basically blown off the board were Tzeentch Daemons and a fairly foot strong Space Wolves list, would love to face a Nids list.

I love playing against GK, watching several dissies turn a terminator block into a mush pile is priceless, as is watching a warrior squad bring down a dreadknight.

Also really enjoy playing ravenwing bike armies, now there's a fun fight. Splinter weapons negate their toughness 5 and it usually ends up being an all out high speed chase...but were still faster!

Chaos daemons on the other hand are a real hit or miss, can be great fun to play against, get some really close games as unusually for many armies they come to you! But other times, its just a walk over if they deepstrike the wrong units or end up in the wrong places.

I totaly agree, i LOVE playing agianst Eldar.

Also the one playing eldar is much like me, we know our rules, we know the game rules, and we dont use ()=#¤/#"()¤ arguing because some morons dont trust eachother. So matches go fast and even. We have had so many exciting matches, that have turned totaly around, from looking like I will win, to looking like he will win, and me edging it in the 7th round. I have properly lost more to him than won, (not by much tho), and he is the only one in the group I have done that too.

He is also the only one I havnt tabled in our group so far.

My favourite army to play is actually a tie between a small 'elite' Black Templars force of my friends and Grey Knights (also my friends army). Both armies are very challenging to play as they can hit just as hard as DE in CC and can shoot with the best of them so its about tactics not brute force which i just love.

I can't wait to go up against Eldar, im expecting very close and bloody battles with those guys

My brother is my favourite opponent, we always have a whale of a time and he plays 'Nids. That said, I hate fighting 'Nids.

One person I've played against in a fun game fielded a Dark Angel Terminator force. Thank Vect for Dark Lances Smile It was a really fun game, tense too, but my opponent and I really played it for laughs - speed versus power.

I've played a few games with a local Eldar player. It's always been fun. (Of course, we both play more for fun than win at all costs. Smile )

My opponent likes it because he has the 'heavy' armor, AV12, vs. AV11. We also get a chuckle out of the fact that this matchup rather negates the lance ability that our weapons have.

All that being said, Farseers and Warlocks are a real pain. It's baffling. The fluff says that DE enjoy capturing psykers as highly prized toys, but don't seem to have developed any anti-psyker defenses. Question

Still, DE vs. CWE is a fun and fluffy grudge fight. Very Happy
