I was wondering what army everyone likes to go up against. Oh and you can make multiple selections

I always like to face Space Marines since there are so many of them, if you beat them then it feels pretty good.

06-06-2006, 19:45
Killing droves of IG gets tedious. Other than that, I'm happy to face anything. I'd love to face Orks one day.

06-06-2006, 19:46
Orks..............despite only playing a couple of games against them, they were some of the best games of 40k I've played

06-06-2006, 20:05
tyranids... if their list is not hard-ass and it's balanced, it's quite fun playing against them

06-06-2006, 20:09
Tyranids, because my games against them have always been good and always massive slaughters for both sides, with pretty much each side completely gutted.

It's good fun.

I enjoy playing against any army. Doubly so against Ork *players*.:D

However, any win against a smug/arrogant gamer is fun.:D

06-06-2006, 20:28
I's gonna krump anybodee who gets close enuff

i like fighting eveyone, however my favorite is fighting my friends Deathwing army. hehehe never stood a chance

06-06-2006, 20:29
Orks! Great opponents and great fun was always had, closely followed by Other Eldar and Dark Eldar players and Nids.

Orks. Some of the best games I've ever player are Orks vs Orks ones (Orks v Orks v Orks v Orks carnage are even better....). It's a total blood bath. First up, neither side has any armour to speak of, and you're using some of the most hideous anti-light-infantry weapons avaliable to normal troops (big shootas). Then comes the inevitable huge punch up in the middle of the board. Which is just plain funny.

And ork players just seem easier to get on with. That, and using an ork army brings out the konverter in people so theres always cool lookin models to ogle at while you're playing.

i like playing nids and guard cus going toe to toe with nids always makes for an exciting game, also guard are fun cus the variation in the army especially when i play eldar its alway fun both armys give me a run for my moneyand are dam fun to play againt (if the person using them is half decent)

completely agree. Ork players are some of the best players around. after all i can say that no ork player has lost the fun element in a game and i always enjoy the games against them.

06-06-2006, 21:25
I'll take on any army as long as the commander with them will be an enjoyable person and the game will be a laugh. Really don't care what army it is they use. :)

i want to face imperials because lots of them to stamp out:D
necrons and tau because i want my assult army of tyranids to ripe their over powered guns right out of their hands:chrome:
and witch hunters because their is a girl in my school that use to play them and still has her army...:angel:

Orks - because it's always a complete slaughterfest (I play 'nids), or Eldar - because those games truly come down to the best tactician winning.



07-06-2006, 00:25
Orks anyday man, not only is it cool to have my BT (lead by helbrecht) fighting a tide of Orks, but they are great fun to play against, and a real challange too, choppas will kill any space marine army.

Not sure if I understood the question though, I read it which army do I LIKE to play against...
If I wanted to win I would play nids, my BT are very anti horde.

Vyper's daemonhunters (imp guard). So fun when neither of us can hit the broadside of a Titan in the shooting phase, and settle it in cc instead..*would so love a rematch*

07-06-2006, 07:12
I would like to vote for this, but I don't have a "prefered enemy". Rather, I have a "Prefered Opponent". As long as the game is a good one, I don't mind what I play against.

07-06-2006, 07:23
I really enjoy playing both Inquisitor variants. Unique and characterful units, and really, I find from an opposing perspective they feel like an elder list- specialists you want to not let do their thing.

I like fighting against all armies, apart from Grey Knights & any army that last no longer that 2 turns (after 3-4games) as there no challege. I will fight Daemon Hunters of course with Intro Marines or Guards, just not pure Grey Knights.

But I am happy to fight any other armies like Marines, Tau, Eldar, fellow Chaos.

I like to go up against Necrons as almost everyone at my local club uses C'tan which makes the army really easy to beat.

I like to play eldar as the players are always inventive with their army so the game is always fresh and new.

I also like to play against orks as the players of the green skinned thrill seekers, never take themselves seriously.:)

07-06-2006, 09:49
I've not got a complete variety to play against but I enjoy fighting IG and Tau.

IG armies give the field of battle the classic WW2 feel and Tau armies look and play like cool sci-fi should :)

I didn't pick Orks or Nids as I have only ever played one game against each if memory serves but they sound like fun.

07-06-2006, 11:02
hmmm, well I'de love to play orks, cause they sound fun, but right now I'm lumped with marines and Imp Guard.....although playing tau should be fun ;)

07-06-2006, 11:18
LatD. Because of the variety. Because if it's well constructed, it revards that you have a 'take all comers' list. (LatD has everything. Heavy armour, tough shock troops, summoning daemons, hordes, well almost everything, except for skimmers :) but that's not soo much of a problem)

Agree. Although facing a static Dark Angels gunline with my footslogging Orks is fairly low on the list of preferred enemies.

I havnt battled against Tyranids for awhile now, but it was one of my favorate games

was using Generic Eldar at the time, had 2 big units of Guardians that was about to be charged by 2 large broods of Gaunts

so i moved them forward and the 2 squads vollys decimated both broods, great gaming moment

hopefuly when this new gaming shop near me opens next week it will atract more Tyranid players to the area.

Has to be orks and nids for me almost always great games and great opponents and its always a challenge taking on both of them with marines or tau.

07-06-2006, 16:06
I love facing IG, because:

1. It's just so fluffy.
2. It's somehow more fun shooting and fighting normal humans instead of superhumans or fancy aliens with all kind of fancy special rules.
3. I seem to win against them all the time :D

My Templars tend to shred Necrons with alarming frequency, but my Eldar prefer the good old Marines for target practise.

07-06-2006, 16:48
i like to play against a painted army fielded by a competent player who knows his rules but who isn't a WAAC player.

Orks are good fun but I've not played against them in just over 3 years, our ork player decided to cut out 40k altogether :(.

Kinda getting bored with the games at the moment though, last 10 games I've played have been against Nids or Dark Eldar, same player too, so looking forward to near future games where I'll get to play against Necrons and Imperial Guard :D.

08-06-2006, 04:32
I always enjoy Guard vs. Guard games. Although lately I have enjoyed facing the local Black Templars player with my Armoured Column. :D

I like smacking anything with good armour saves. The feeling is almost as intoxiating as cherry pie... :p

Not to say that i don't like other armies, these I just like more... just like cherry pie... :p

Mmm. I voted for everything other than Dark Eldar and Nids. Nids scare me just because most of my armies are equipped fot HTH but they're just so much better. Plus Lictors are scary. If its a good opponent I don't mind though.

I've developed a bit of a fear of Dark Eldar after the last 3 games I've had I've been smacked 3 shades of blue. They're fast and deadly and the onlt army I have that can compete with them is my Eldar.

Everyone else is fair game (I guess its because my armies are designed to take out power armour)

09-06-2006, 04:16
definitely tau they hate my salamander dev squad of 2pc and 2hb ,as well as not liking to get into cc , the tau player i know also bemoans the fact that my sallies are infantry heavy as his army is geared for long range tank killing.:cool:

09-06-2006, 04:31
As an ex Marine player, I enjoy the carnage my new Necron army inflicts on everyone, but Marines especially. Too many player continue to flock to Marines - for the sake of the game some need to be culled! :)

09-06-2006, 04:41
Says the Necron player.:rolleyes:


09-06-2006, 04:47
anything except necrons or marines. not that i mind the armies as a whole, i am after all, a chaos player. But i like the ap of my guns to matters and not spending the entire game getting a cron player to phase out. it just gets boring.
