Alright, here are the suggestions as of Week 1
Terminators
Broadsides
Sniper Drones
Lash Prince
Death Company
Mephiston
Plague Marines
Harlequins
Falcons

I'll sum up the unused suggestions every week so we know what's still in the 'pool' before throwing out more ideas.

Remember, if you see something that's in the pool that you *want* to see a post on, please say so. If there's obvious interest in a particular subject it's going to get picked quicker. For example, this week Hespithe suggested Broadsides and Frostbite commented that he would like to to see it, so this week is...

Versus Tau Broadsides!

How about vs Monstrous Creatures (MCs)?
Or if that's too broad
Vs Carnifex's
Vs Hive Tyrants
Vs Wraithlords
Vs Avatar of Khaine
Vs The Nightbringer
Vs The Deceiver
Vs So on and so forth

This is especially important for enemies with Toughness around 8 or with special nasty rules built in.

I'd like to see how people deal with assault troops, such as Assault Marines or Raptors. Fast moving troops are the bane of most shooty armies, even if they have some mobility. I'm also very curious to see how people deal with Monoliths, particularly the ones that deep strike on top of you in force (2 or 3 at once, a friend of mine uses that tactic and it messes me up something fierce).

We live in fame, or go down in flames!

This is a game like real war, played against time, and played under circumstances of considerable excitement, and it is remarkable how elastic the measurements of quite honest and honourable men can become.

what about vs independant characters? Or maybe a thread about dealing with a specific character (ex. vs Kharn the betrayer, vs Tigurius, vs eldrad ulthran, etc.)

Deepstrikers may be worthwhile to have a topic of their own (how to anticipate them, deny them positioning, maximize risk, and deal with them when they arrive).

I would prefer focusing on individual characters rather than ICs in general, similarly with MCs, I'd rather go for specific examples since in both cases, the individual abilities possessed by the various creatures and characters can dramatically alter the scenario.

Deepstrikers, however, isn't a bad idea since they tend to share characteristics and tactics.

I'd personally like to know how to deal with the deciever. I hate it that I can never get into hand to hand with him unless he wants me to.

Thats no moon, thats a... no wait... thats a moon.

Man, Week 1 was great! We got four pages out of it and it's still going. I'm glad this seems to be working out. We also got a lot of good suggestions.

Suggestions pool as of Week 2
Terminators
Sniper Drones
Lash Prince
Death Company
Mephiston
Plague Marines
Harlequins
Falcons
Wave Serpents
Carnifex
Hive Tyrants
Wraithlord
Avatar of Khaine
The Nightbringer
The Deceiver
Jump Packers
Kharn the Betrayer
Tigurius
Eldrad Ulthran
Deepstrikers

Eldar grav-tanks in general got a bit of interest, but we also just had a nice long thread about dealing with them, so I decided to hold off.

As a BA player I'm interested in hearing how people deal with JPs too, but Frosty got his pick last week

I think this week we'll go with something really scary...The Death Company
