I’ve recently gotten back into the game and primarily play ultramarines, against my brother who runs orcs.
My list looks like this for 500pt battles.
, sanctic halo, warlord
, flamer and missile launcher
squad as above
Dreadnought with auto cannon and missile launcher.
My bro runs this:
Warboss with PK
and kustom-shoota/heavy slugga or whatever
5 Nobz with a painboy all with power klaws
two squads of boyz with choppas/sluggaz
His strategy is to blast forward in his trukk and disembark his warboss/painboy/nob squad shooting all the way, the boyz trail along behind and usually hit turn 2 or 3 on foot. The issue I face is the Death Star of a squad he throws at me. Doesn’t matter what I play in return as a mobile gun line or what he always smashes me. Once those nobZ gets into combat with the warlord he kills whatever he touches. It was very close last match as I kited his Death Star but he still won once he locked me into combat. The ultramarine stratagem is effective as mobile gun line but I don’t know what else to do. Gonna build up with an apothecary and inceptors next for 750 but any other pointers in 500?
