|Things I hate. Haha|
The two armies I play are Tyranids and Jump Blood angels. Both of which are screwed over by a good GK list. 3++ gives a good comparison between BA and GK. Though I think the BA are given a bit too much credit.
Blood angels can't reliably deepstrike within 12" of GK's. Same thing with just moving up, you don't want to end within the 7-12 range because then you'll get assaulted. So you are staying 13" ish away. GK move back 6", shoot and then you either move up to your 13" away or move up to 7" and get assaulted after getting shot at. Yes there are ways around it, but that is a main point of frustration. I've also noticed jumpers can have trouble with Terminators. Made worse when they are I6, 4++ troops.
Tyranids are in an even worse boat. Pretty much every single GK unit can instant kill. Be it S8 dreadnought fire, or Force weapons, anything not on a small bases is going to go down quick. For the small guys there are the storm bolters and Powers. The three things I can think of that could do well combating GKs are the ones that are most vulnerable to Storm bolters; stealers, ravaners/shrikes, hormagaunts. Not to mention all of those are getting killed either at or before initiative. (Shadow in the Warp is still a pain for GK's. -farmpunk)
I'm not trying to be all doom and gloom. GKs are not the end all be all. I tabled a GK player with my nids, and he is a very competent player often placing higher than I in most tournaments. What I am trying to say is that I'm transitioning away from playing 40k. I've been on a losing streak for over 2 months (baring the mentioned game against GK), coupled with the increasing feeling that the armies I play are progressively getting worse ( or I am). I will be focusing more on the hobby aspect of 40k. I have some conversions I want to finish up and I'm looking to improve my painting a lot.
I will finish up the next few weeks with my mech BA. I do decent with them but they bring me no real joy to play (there is a reason I'm a Nid player). The G2D4 tourney on the 14th will most likely be my last game for a while. I Think I have one more Nid tactica post in me. I do have some hobby posts I'll be working on.
GW has really just be unimpressive so far to me. It would require a redoing of Nid errata & FAQ or the introduction of 6th ed to really get me interested at this point.
PS. With Spag's recent post about redundancy and such enjoy the following pictures. He is a little less of the top, and a little bit more of the bottom.
