Hi, my housemate has been beating me very soundly lately. Usually I'm forced to admit defeat by turn 3 if I havn't already been wiped out. I played this game for over 15 years and normally I enjoy tweaking my lists slightly and overcoming the challenge of beating my opponents. But this really has me stumped. Our games aren't even remotely close.

I play CSM and Chaos Daemons, so if you can give me some tips on how to beat this army with them I would appreciate it. But if you have any ideas at all, even a different army all together I would like to hear that too.

We play 2500 points and he regularly uses 2 FoC.

His list:

HQ

1 x Haemonculus (Flamer template weapon)

5 x Wracks (Flamer template weapon)

1 x Raider Transport
