Well for a high point competitive army list I have
2 Librarians 200
3 Furioso Dreadnoughts Blood talons 375
25 Death company bog standered 440
4 death company Dreadnought blood talons 500
3 Normal Dreadnought with auto cannon 330
1x Assualt Squad melta bombs 105
3 Baal Predators Flame storm cannon 345
Total 2295

How would you deal with this list, this isn't a take all comers exclusively for my local hobby shop where I know my opponents run horde lists. How would you deal with this if you where infantry IG,tyranid horde, Orks.

Which of those are troop choices?
Personally i would be loading up on hw teams and lascannons. Shoot you in the Baal's. Then go for the dreads. For my own force i never leave home without a few leman russ who would help with the marines. Without them i am not sure. Does your opponent field artillery?

I know for a fact that on the ork army the closest anti tank thing he has is a power claw. The IG i know my friend Sam has only one leman russ but has extreme amounts of infantry, spied on him lol. The tyranid player only runs one venom cannon on the hive tyrant. The Chaos player plays a fluffy thousand sons army.

I would not play it. Your army is illegal, Death Company are not scoring units therefore you only have one troop choice.

Ok here it goes the tearing apart of the list of how I would do it -

1) You have 1 scoring unit - I shoot that first with my Disintegrator Ravagers = dead if not Wyches will deal with it fine then job is done!

2) All Dark Lances foucs on the Baal's first if not on the Dreads with Autocannons go down then Baal's, leaving you with an army that moves 6" across the board a turn or up to 12" without assault ability = stupid for BA players.

3) I sit back and annoy your units by moving around and shooting them to death with long range guns and fast moving vehicles - KP Missions = too easy, Objective Missions your too slow to win.

I'm sorry but with 2/3 missions being Objective based and then a 1 in 3 chance of getting the dawn of war setup is just going to kill this army to easy.

I imagine Orks and IG would use a similar tactic to the above killing off the Asault squad first then tanks orks would obviously kill the DC with Ork Nobs with painboy nicely on bikes and also be scoring at the same time.

Nids would go mfor the Doom with Zoanthropes tactic here and lance tanks to death!

you can have the following in a BA army and still be legal.

3 Furiosos (any type)
5 Death Company Dread's
25 Death Company Marines
3 Normal Dreads
(and a HQ of your choice)

and you have a legal army.

How i woudl deal with it is so.
1 - Kill your only scoring unit. You now can't win 2/3 games and i just have to stay alive.
2 - Get my speedy stuff to run rings around your Death dreads or place a nice empty Rhino in frount of them.
3 - Focus on the on-rage units.
Field nd army of nothing bu landraiders...i win!!!!! You ahve nothign that can halm AV14 only 1 melta bomb and 2 shots with Blood Lance and both are really short range.
"Oh but you would field that?" ya right. My 1000pts BA force is jsut that..nothign but Landradiers and it's growing.

I would tackle it by telling you to cut out 75 more points so it was legal. Your total is 2370. I'll leave it as a homework task for you to work out where.

I'd just field the usual BA list of maxed razorback spam with lascan/plasma.

How fast do your dreadnoughts move? Cause I move faster.

I still don't think you see any army with a S8 or above gun with 36" or more that can spam them cheap is going to destroy this army, even with your multimeltas and blood lance you still may not hit as many of our vehicle with your few shots as the opponent can hit with his mass anti tank.

I'm pritty sure you ment Meltaguns not Multi-meltas and even then you still have to get close enough. the only thing that even close the distance are your Furioso Libbys....which you don't have.
