Now you guys may say just bring raiders. But i still lost and i never used this tactic before ( my very first time) now heres a question i would you guys to help me with.

What units or vehicles should i use to pressure one side of his phalanx or line. Now i know there was a topic on this but it described Alpha strike. What i want to know is how to effectively break his left center or right phalanx so he is forced to reposition.

I checked alot of topics didnt find any. Just want to improve my playing and understanding of a super moblie army. I play chaos too they are way different.

Thanks Very Happy

A large beast unit is excellent for what you want to do.

4 Beastmasters, 20 Khymerae, Baron, Farseer on jetbike (can't remember the name of the item that makes him fearless).

What type of brush should I use to paint my item?

Specifically looking for the best tool for the job, I need to get proper coverage.

Thor's question is one that doesn't need either asking or answering. In fact, it's so vague, you actually can't answer it at all Wink

Perhaps having huge numbers of reaver could help. They could easily speed into your enemy lines and pressure him. Use bladevane and speed to get in, killing stuff on the way. On your enemy's next turn, he'll have to deal with them or get tied up by them. Follow up with more units behind the reavers or on that specific flank/corner. Beastpacks are good with that as well.

I believe the best way to pressue one side of the board is to simply have everything deadly you have on that side and killing stuff. If you have reavers deep in his right flank, with beasts nearing in from the same flank, it could be troublesome for him/her. Also the perhaps more important thing to have during these situations, target saturation. Provide enough threats and mess up your enemy's target proority.

"Do I kill his reaver first and let the beasts charge me next, or take out the beasts first? But I'm tempted to shoot those empty raiders now that they are in range. Man, I wish I coulda taken them both out in the same time!"

So what units pressure what enemies the best? This is roughly IMO what our units are good pressure against:

haywire wyches - vehicles & walkers
beastpack - everything?!
reavers - most infantry with crappy saves, sometimes even Space marines!
scourges? - ok you deepstrike them and now they sit in front of enemy vehicles. With haywire blasters.
Harliestar - just general nuisance, I belive good against all infantry


Our more enlightened and more experienced tactical commanders can now discuss (and correct me)!
