I just played a HUGELY proxied game with my friend... 2500 points, I had around 500 points of that assembled, he had around 300 points. None the less it was an awesome game but there was one thing that just slowed me down for a few turns due to them soaking up my fire like crazy: PATHFINDERS!
Really nice unit it seems, and with a 3+ save in the cover we had on the board, it took me far too long to remove them with 2 vindicators, a 5 man tac squad and some speeder's melta (I couldn't move up to get my flamer because they were BOTH immobilized on turn one... sigh.
It'd be nice to get a discussion going on how to remove pesky models with awesome cover saves... It has probably been done before but there's no harm in getting fresh ideas. Template weapons are a pretty obvious choice because they ignore all cover, but it's all about delivery... What do you think is best? I'll put up a poll with a few options (obviously not a lot) to see what people think on the best way to remove cover save models!
