Yeah much better to throw the preds forward while everything else hangs back.
Yes, because holding back our fire power leads to winning games, according to you. The preds have to be constantly on the move, otherwise any enterprising unit close enough will auto hit it in CC. Plus, twin assault cannons into side armor? who wouldn't take that chance. Oh I forgot, you're the pro here. Sorry, let's hold ALL the fire power back. Don't shoot the enemy, were far too concerned with keeping 20+ jump infantry marines from being seen.
Out flanking CC scouts. . . . . . . .
I see nothing wrong with outflanking CC scouts, especially if they get FC, oh my Rifleman dread in combat with cc scouts forever and a day.
If your taking a raider or raven you are better off with TH/SS termies than DC.
Depends on how many points left over. Typically Termies run you 210 pts, 3 claws and 2 hammers, you can get DC just as effective in CC for about 180 pts.
You lost me when you mentioned land raiders and deep striking in the same sentence.
LoL, were you not aware? BA LR's and LR variants can DS. Unless ofcourse you're not reading the same BA codex I am.
If only marines had access to some short ranged S8 AP1 gun with the melta rule. . .
Btw when your dumb enough to shoot ACV14 with an auto/las pred let me know ok?
Right, as you stated SHORT RANGED. Because the meltas in Katie's list get to shoot at armor from turn 1 right? I mean, are you also assuming that whoever she's playing is a complete fool to let meltas get that close? I mean, you must be to assume that all her meltas, are always going to be in range, all the time, without ever once coming to harm. So what to do against armor from turns 1-3, because typically it takes 3 turns the longest to get into melta range. Should we follow your advise and hold all the fire power back?
LoL and why wouldn't you fire lascannons at an LR at all? If you're given no other targets, and it fits your target priorty, PLUS all those short ranged meltas, just happened to be out of range. You must have somehow forgotten those S8 AP1 guns are short ranged, unless you count 48" as short ranged. You'll need to send that memo to lascannon users everwhere, apparantely it's the worst idea ever to fire lascannons at armor.
Included, didn't you advise Katie to put those meltas in jump pack assault squads vs the mounted assault squads? Thereby giving the meltas an even shorter effective range.
Let me just look here...
Mounted assault squad gets 12" vehicle movement + 2" diembark + melta range
Jump pack assault squads gets 12" movement + melta range. Not to forget to mention that the assult squads are hiding behing the vehicles. Meaning those meltas are still too far out.
Contrary to popular opinion, that extra 2", means the difference between the extra penetration die and not.
Plus, you're still avoiding the topic of supression that you so desperately clung on. Explain again, how does the autocannon beat the lascannon in terms of supression? The auto/las pred combines the best of both worlds. Autocans for light-med armor, lascans for everything else while still maintaining a alot of shots. It's still better to have a vehicle mutli-purpose enough to hit all armor ranges, especially if your going for supression. Here I thought, you knew competitive more than I did. Furthermore, the best army to play supression against is Eldar, since Eldar have all those AV 12 vehicles, with those wave serpents with their pesky shields, turn anything above S8 as S8, but S7, is still worse than S8. Sooo is glancing on a 5+ still better than Glaning on a 4+ apparantly according to you.
Because I'm totally the guy saying I beat tournament winners and are friends with ETC players. . . .
As opposed to the person who knows so much better than others, strokes his ego by degrading others....
If only jump pack marines could fly over units or counter charge people who charge our dreads.
I remember saying something about vanguard and outflanking CC scouts.... Plus, arent all of katies 20+ jump marines huddling around 2 priests, who themselves are huddling behind several vehicles, that are all equipped with short ranged weapons... as you said, she's piggy backing off teh razorbacks.
Hm FC/FnP, not like katie has 2 priests to cover her 20 jump packers. . .
The 6" coverage is not as large as you'd like to imagine. At least not at all when your measuring it straight from the infantry model itself, as opposed to measuring it, oh I don't know, say from the hull of a vehicle, like a rhino chassis or heck a LR.
