i was bored and thought i would post a thread on which winning situations a race is best at. for assassinate and take and hold, i say Eldar are best for those. for assassinate, they can hold the commander with the guardian's wraithtomb and kill 'em. when the wraithtomb wears off, send in the warp spiders and warp in a circle around the commander and surround and kill. and when your in trouble, just send the farseer into the webway gate. and for take and hold, send the seer councel attached to the farseer into the web way gate with a bunch of warpspiders. build webways next to the points you have contol of and warp back and forth protecting them all. control area wont work so good because you cant warp that fast to save all of your points. then for destroy hq, space marines would be good for that because they can send some scouts to do some snooping around to look for any extra HQs and then send some assault terminators and an FC with an orbital bombardmant after the orginal HQ and send dreads after any HQs in the process of being built anywhere else on the map.

In winter Assault though IG is the best for assasinate but since this is in Dow section I don't think you have WA.

As you said, SM are very good at destroy HQ, but they are also quite good at assassinate. You can find the enemy commander and drop Assault Terminators right on him/her. They stun and then kill.

i have winter assault, but what makes u think that Ig are good for assassinate? the command squad are supposed to counter commander units but eldar get hold them with guardians and jump around them with spiders.

The reason that I think IG are good in assasinate is that they have 2 units specialized in killing heros, now you may think Im a noob but it works very well. --1.You see first of all you got this lil guy called "Assasin" if you read his description it says so that hes good agasint heros, but you never know unless you actually test-- I took out many heros with this guy in my games, I bring him in the site do his special(increase range,sight,damage) and tjake out heros and usually the enemy wont respond in non assasinate games so since they are weakened i attack em. But if this was an assasinate game i would have won. You can also ilfitarate them, so if they are keeping their hero unit in their base you can go in their un noticed and take him out. --2. You got the pysker, you can have a total of 7 of these guys so even if one fails you can make the others attack. They have this attack called "strip soul" if you have more then 1(which you always should) just keep using this attack on them, it does immense damage sometimes its one shot one kill(same on the assasin). so these guys are usefull, you can use em on avatars and bloodtrhirsters too. Just try all these the assasin one works pretty well, I always use that strategy.

yeah, but u have to be careful with strip soul. it has a chance of blowin the head off the phsyker and hurting or killing anyone around him, one time i tried strip soul twice in the command squad and two of 'em died in a row.

Okay, but if you remember what Optimal Prism said, you will have MORE than 1 psyker. I don't know much about Winter Assault, but I know this^

an early assassination strike can also be successfull sometimes, using several assault marine squads to drop on target and block it in HtH combat. If there aren't many troops to help, the ennemy FC's doomed.

i still say eldar are better at it, and if u wanted to risk it, you could also use your farseer to do mind war. but what i dont get is in assassination, why is the big mek the one who is the target?!

Cause a basic, unupgraded Warboss would be overpowered compared to all other unupgraded FCs.
