Tank defence against melta marines in a drop pod from turn one
Feel free to help if you can please.
I recently experienced a thumping from white scar bikes. I am a novice so can live with that. What bothers me is that his drop pods came in turn one, right next to my 2 vindicators, out popped 5 Marines from each and their combi meltas blew up both tanks.
My question is, how can I avoid this?
I've thought since and maybe reserve each tank is the obvious choice and had I gone first, I would've at least used them once. But are there any other tricks I'm missing?
I play Chaos but only really for fun.
