I played 40k today at my local hobby shop,I battle a dude with Space Marine. He won the game, we play six turns using 2000 points each, and at the end I had 380 and he had almost 500 left. Every time I play him I can' t destroy his Land Radier, today I just knock out both of it lascannons I just like to have some ideas what you think I should do. Thanks

Could shell the bajeebus out of it. The ordnance damage table isn't very nice.

Mass fire power. Just shoot the hell out of it with every missile launcher/las cannon you have got. Failing that get a command squad with melta-guns and a JO with Power Fist and drop troop it right next to it. Veterans/ST's are another way of doing this but a CS is probably the cheapest way of doing it. The squad will probably die but hell its worth it. Special Weapon Squad could also work.

Ordnance is another way.

Basically use a lot of big guns and shell him till he dies. Failing that just ignore it, LR's look scary but against a horde army like IG they arn't really that good.

Jacobite your post is full of usefull Land Raider crackin' tacktics. However you mention using an Officer with Power Fist to take it out. However Guard are only strength 3 and so with a Power Fist the Officer is only Strength 6, so with a good roll of 6 for penetration you only score 12. Thus a Land Raider is unable to be cracked with a Guard Power Fist. Arm your Command Squads, Special Weapons Squads, and Rough Rider Squads with Melta Bombs and you might have a chance at it in hand to hand. Good luck.

Cheers for that Metal. I had completely forgot that. Thanks for correcting me.

Another tip I just thought of. Ally with DH, get a Grandmaster, buy him a Thunder Hammer, deep-strike and laugh. Lots.

Personally, I don't use Lascannons or Bassies to go after the hardest vehicle targets. I do use a command squad with a meltagun, a special weapons squad with 2 meltaguns and a demo charge, and a Storm Trooper squad with 2 meltaguns and the deepstrike ability. Also, I hope to roll Machine Curse for my 3 Sanctioned Psykers. In addition, there's always the Hope and a Prayer (c) approach with 3 Battle Cannons and 6 Missile Launchers in the army.

I don't always tag my target Land Raider, but usually when I don't it just means that the silly silly Land Raider in question is the last target worth shooting at the end of the game.

Simple: fire a leman russ at it. I blew up monolith just by firing a trusty battle cannon at it.

what other targets were there for you to shoot at? was it that imperative that the LR be disabled? Is it a LR or a LR crusader?
you have access to hvy wpn teams,tanks and melta wpns. plenty to deal with opp. LR.

Indeed, I pack an array of lascannons for anti tank in most lists, and they perform well enough.

Are you only using rocket launchers for anti tank? That might be your problem.

Sending special weapon squad with melta is the best way, because it's the IG way. "Glory to the first man to die!"
