Dark Reaper Helpgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Games Workshop Discussion : One Thread
All right, does anyone have any strategies to deal with dark reapers? My friend plays eldar and his reapers eat up my marines like the emperor eats souls. I have to bunker up and assault in the last turn to keep from getting chewed up by 10-20 Reapers. Any suggestions?

what you could do is use a vehicle and go at them like that. afterall AP is no longer cumulative. that way he has a choice. take out the vehicle or take out the squads you have. also if you face point problems with the vehicle then use cheap troops. tacticle squads: 15 per man + ___ for heavy weapon. i suuggest the H bolter. also you could try using a few terminators and use deep strike w/an assult cannon. there's lots of thing you could do. be creative. i've been through this problem before. i now how annoying it is.

Exactly how big of game do you play? if you're playing around 1500 points per battle your friend is being beardy, but enough of that. My guess is that the games you play lack substantial terrain, because terrain imposes a limit to the effectiveness of heavy weapons,and the dark reapers, and any heavy weapons, fall very easily to hand to hand. If the battlefield you play with is regultion(8'x 4') or larger, unless the senario says otherwise you don't have to destroy the dark reapers all the time, if the reapers are set up with clear lines of sight blocked, then take advantage of them and fight there. other than that? tactics are best learned through experience. with marines, fast movers like assault troops and deepstikers like terminators might help.with chaos, veterans and terminators could help. With tyranids, gargoyles and a lictor could keep him honest. Orks have their numbers and assault gear and storm boys.Dark eldar are all about speed. Imperial Guard should never be outgunned, if you are then there is something seriously wrong with your army, so take the long range war to his doorstep while screening with ogryn and roughriders. Well thats my two cents...

That retarded over-obsessed loser who posted above is screwed up. He has no life. I hate idiots who post stupid comments about their army being so "cool" or "unbeateable" even though their real army sucks. I mean how could someone say that you have to surrender, die, run like some 2-year old. I mean its just a game, a great game nonetheless but some people deserve to be banned from the game, like the guy above. So please email him and tell him to stop...oih nevermind his email address is fake! haha. sigh ive posted to long. well im just sick of over-energetic freaks pretending they are their army commanders just to sound cool or something. It should be stopped. That is all.
