But anyway, today I will start a series of tactics exploring different netlists, and how best to defeat them. The first one, as the title explains, is the most feared Lysander list.
The list is based around Captain Darnath Lysander, as the name suggests. In addition to this rock-hard hero, usually is added a Librarian with stormshield, 2 squads of hammernators with Land Raiders, and finally some tactical marines in transports, or scouts. All in all a very difficult list to beat.
There are several different ways to beat this type of list. The most effective way, in the words of Advice Guardsman, is:
I have seen Lysander and his squad butcher their way through 6 nob bikers, and 2 warbosses. Then 30 boyz come along. Dead Lysander.
The other option is more widely usable by many different types of power-armored armies. Send up sever expendable melta squads, blow the raiders sky-high, then blow them away with frag missiles, lascannons, whatever is necessary.
The best counter-army:
The best counter army is without a doubt Venomspam Dark Eldar. Lances can blow up the raiders by turn 1-2, and then your 100-odd splinter shots can do the rest. Since the two land raider termie squads are going to suck up a lot of points, a Lysander army will have very little to threaten your Ravagers at range, since the easiest way to counter Venomspam is to take down the Ravagers (Venomspam! 9 lances to 0 lances in 3 shots!).
Anyway, that's it for this week's Netlist beating tactics. So, feedback? Am I the next Tony Kopach, or am I just an idiot spitting out more junk with which to pollute the internet.
