Suggestions for a Bug fight

Postby Toryas » Wed Dec 28, 2011 4:17 pm

The title says it all! I have a 2500 pt. match coming up against some bugs. The guy has every model available in quantity and like to be random.

Can anyone suggest some really good all around Bug squishing sqauds?

When it comes to good all around units. Id say Chosen take a few flamers and meltas and a power fist. I wouldnt say that squad will last long but the flamers should take care of some small guys like hormogaunts. Meltas and power fist for the bigger monsters. Its going to be the heavy slot where your going to do the most damage. So if it comes to a choice between a throw away chosen units and some oblits i would choose the oblits. One tactic that comes to mind is to give the chosen an icon and deep strike one unit of oblits. I know its risky but it could work lol.

What units do you have. Might be easier to work something out if we knew what you had.

Might want to consider a couple of vindicators too! When things get close and messy :)

Might want to consider not tailoring. Tailoring is the equivilant of cheating. Just write an all-round list and beat him with skill, not your list.

Bring Typhus and let him charge gaunts. His Nurgles rot will do wonders.

Well I wasn't looking to get a list given to me. I was just looking for suggestions as to what works well against the bugs. I've never won against them without my opponent forgetting something during play which doesn't really count imo.

I was just hoping for a little insight is all, I have a list I play against any army i play and i was just going to change a few things for fun. I don't expect to win but i will damn well try!

Maybe your problem comes from the list you're running in the first place. Why don't you post that so we can see what you've been working with?

Well I dont run any one type of list for any army, I love to vary my forces. I know his has caused me to lose many times, but I always have fun regardless so whatever :)

My problem seems to be Tyranids! No matter the list, they chomp me everytime I play them!

So I was hoping someone might know of some solid tactics against them. I wasn't looking for a list, just some nice pointers really. So I will post what I have available to me, and I am willing to get any unit I dont have as I want to have at least one of every model I can field.

2 Deamon Princes (one is a bloodthirster, works well as a DP too :twisted: )
20 Berserkers
21 Plagues
15 Csm or Chosen
5 Terminators (usually used as a proxy for Obi's)
1 Land raider
3 Rhinos
1 Predator
2 Lords
Abbadon (never use unless in 3K+)
1 Defiler
1 Obliterator (waiting for more!)

Thats it I think

Try those Daemon princes with Mark of Nurgle, wings and Nurgles rot for once. The rot attack makes him a hordes killer against any type of Gaunts.

Just fly him up to 1,000001" of them and unleash those rotting powers of him. Maybe add something with Lash (this means you only have 1 Nurgle prince though)in the mix as well so you can re-order those gaunts in order to get maximum effects out of that "stinkbomb".

Just give it some thought.
