i say Ig not because tacitcs are hard but you have to read the game turns ahead
guard are to week to use foolishly
the point is the tricky part of guard to me is getting their value without them getting killed by something before you get some kils in

To me its going to have to be a pure Grey Knights army. There is just not enough of them and because of lack of transportation other than a Land Raider their is just not that much room for error with those guys. And for every Grey Knight that falls you really do feel it.

I'm sorry, but Cron's, CSM and Sm are not difficult to play, i expect while a few of ppl who say they are may be vets who see MEQ killer lists daily and in that case fair enough. But to me the majority will merely be attempting to justify picking an army because they went 'Wow, 3+ save' by claiming that rly its hard tactically to use.

While i play eldar, a fairly tactical list it is by no means the most challaging to me (i can see arguments for it however), eldar do have the advantage that every unit is pretty much stated what it does so do it like tht or die! I voted DE because as someone earlier stated, open topped AV bottle rocket tanks will always be hard to use, combined with troops that fall over in a strong breeze this team rly does require a good idea of how to utilize cover and the battlefeild to work in their favor, hats off to any DE players. Also noted i don't count Inquisition as my above mentioned easier armies, as they cost so blasted much.

P.s. before i get the inevitable hate mail, i've never collected Inquistion so not attempting to justiy it but i did get Space Wolves.

Just throwing it out there but I really don't believe any well-made list of eldar or tau is at all strategically challenging.

Now a list of eldar in the new edition where they HAVE to rely on guardians and dire avengers, that'll be respect points all over the place, but as of fourth edition, you're high thinking they're difficult to play. And tau aren't any better. Sure if you make it into the frontline you almost have them, but good luck getting there. Markerlights and smartmissiles(friggen hate those) are abysmal. But again, fifth edition will balance it out with running and better cover rules.

I'd have to say dark eldar. They NEED tactics to even squeek out a draw.

I personally find Dark Eldar to be the most challenging to play, but darn are they rewarding when everything clicks. Inquisition is a close second, but I have had very little experience facing them and when I have it was always a very one sided victory in my favor. I think someone said it best when they said your opponents army plays a huge factor in this decision because there are certain armies that can just give other armies fits. It just so happens that I think Dark Eldar have the most problems with a good chunk of opponents because like they say "Even the best laid plans..."
