Default What is the hardest army to vs and why

I think the hardest is tau to many big guns for me.

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.

Well my worst battle was against Necrons got absolutely wiped off the table when i was relatively new to the game. I was with Space Marines and it was a real shock to see them get cut up so easily.

I'm gonna have to agree with necrons.
If any of you saw that necron tactics thread with the hammer and anvil strategy, then you'll apreciate how goddamn bitching hard they are to kill, and how much damage they can do.
Also, being an eldar player, I alway seem to struggle with tyranids, for being a very fast cc army, if built correctly

rock - paper - scissors...it all depends on what army I play.

For my Necrons it was against an IG army with lots of tanks. Now I know you may be thinking WTF?!?! Necrons should own vehicles. Yeah, that is what I thought. It was those darn pie plates that did me in. And this was not a pure armor company list, just maxed out on vehicles.

Yes, I will be using the lash on that unit again so I may touch your models a second time.

Mine would have to be Tyranids quick, alot of them and a good distraction for the carnefexes to walk in.

I'm not insane I just lack sanity, there's a difference....................somewhere
