Crisis Battlesuits. Okay I know these are generally easy to kill but you wanted suggestions and Crisis suits are quite capable of doing damage when used well.

Hammerheads/Tau Skimmers. Though mine seem to have no problems dying I read a lot of people complaining about Tau skimmers being really hard to bring down so this could be worth considering.

These may seem like odd suggestions coming from a Tau player, but knowing how my enemy can kill me is just as important as knowing how I can kill them.

I would like to see Terminators or Harlequins looked at next week. We seem to be focusing on the larger units as they can be quite nasty but the tactics used in dealing with them are kinda similar. For past two weeks the only advice for Tau players has been "shoot them with railguns", that's good advice as it will work but I'm sure most Tau players would do that anyway.

Anyway I'm really enjoying the whole 'versus' thing and I hope it keeps going.

Please help Keak reach his full potential.

New-
vs. Master of the Ravenwing!! (I hate that fast Land Raider)
vs. Abaddon the Despoiler (much scarier than Kharn)
vs. Howling Banshees
vs. Deathwing (all terminator/mech army)

I love the threads Galahad and think its coming along great so far.

Alright, not a lot of people suggesting this week but a lot of suggestions none the less.

Looks like a lot of interest in Terminators, but Eldar have been the white elephant in the room and I figure we should address them before doubling back to Marines.

Harlies got a LOT of talk recently though, and so have skimmers... I was tempted to do the skimmers, but really there's so much on them right now and I didn't want another "Shoot it with railguns!" topic

So I figured I'd go back a step and hit on someone that hasn't been brought up a lot lately: Eldrad Ulthran...I know, he hasn't gotten as many requests as skimmers or harlies, but I'm curious about him (and I think it's good to remind people that this can be about ICs too)

Keep adding new suggestions, keep weighing in on old ones (I promise I won't ignore the multi-star topics often! Just this once...)

And, hey, why not some orks?! Their new codex is freaking scary, let's hear some orky units you want to take down!

In the meantime, here's the list as of Week Five (God, it's been more than a month!)

Asterix (*) denotes units that have been suggested more than once.
Terminators ***
Sniper Drones
Lash Of Submission *
Daemon Prince *
Mephiston
Plague Marines *
Harlequins **
Eldar Skimmers **
Hive Tyrants *

Tau Battlesuits

Howling Banshees
The Deathwing

I double triple quadruple suggest the Daemon Prince. How about shooty armies taking down the bike/jetbike rush? I have always had a problem with that.

*sigh* I have to point out that despite what you see in games, lasrifles win wars. Just because lasrifles suck at killing superhuman killing machines in power armor does not mean that they are bad weapons. You are shooting them at the wrong targets. The most common enemy the Imperium faces is lightly armored humans armed with lasguns or autoguns, NOT SPACE MARINES.

Sorry for the tardy update, folks. Lost track of what day was what and spend my normal Versus time whipping up some 40k fiction of the fiction contest.

Eldrad didn't turn out like I expected, but it still generated a lot of activity. I'm glad to see we're still going strong.

Looking at the list, I see a couple of topics with strong interest, and since we haven't touched on chaos yet, I'm going to call this week for The Daemon Prince.

As always, good job guys, you're the ones who keep this feature going. Let's hear some more ideas and recommendations. I'll try not to be 12 hours late next week ;-)

Suggestions As Of Week 6
