i just tried your army versus an insane com eldar army and it wiped them out, you should try it using attack move and dont deep strike, it should work (eldar are weak on offence but strong on defence, so if your first attack doesnt work, come back later with bigger guns and do it again). your army was good but eldar troops have such little health and do so much damage you might be better served with 5 squads of termies all with assault cannon as it should mow them down quickly and then allow you to carry on shooting the buildings. mad chipmunk, please dont come over to this forum and disregard my tactics they work
Slightly cooler than a n00b

Although i would not like to devulge this secret of ours to counter Eldar NEVER EVER build rockets or anti tank guns if they have brighlances, they arent tanks there heavy infantry get dreadnoughts with assault cannons or hellfire dreadnoughts and mass termies with assault cannons. iof that doesnt work fi you dont get that far build plasma and heavy bolters because all the eldar army is is dark reapers and brightlances which are infantry and heavy infantry.
ty i tried but whenever i attack there brightlances chew me up while the blasted dark reapers hit all heavey infrantry down even temies any other startagies

Moose your tactic does work. And since you are obviously talking about quickstart. Or normal dow quickstart your tactic is pretty much the obvious counter. But get whirlwinds behind your mass of marines they blast the dark reapers very well.
I will tell you when your tactic sucks when it for lack of a better word sucks.
