Running CSM apparently doesn't help when the local meta is mostly BA and GK. Come to think of it, 4 of those 5 loses were to GK and/or BA. It doesn’t seem like those armies need to think much unless they are fighting each other. They seem to be simpler vs. CSM: move, shoot, assault, repeat. Whereas it seems that I have to really think about lanes of fire, threat distance, choppy/shooty-ness of the opposing force, and all that other stuff...
Oh, and the other thing that doesn’t help is that many of the players at Frontline have been doing 40k for 15+ years.
I don't think I can blame my list... the core of the list is typically:
1x Lash DP
+ Misc other units depending on my mood.
Which is a fairly viable list, as I understand it. I think maybe I'll add some T-sons in place of the Zerks for the next game. I need more ranged punch vs MEQs.
I’m hoping the new codex will bring some relief in the form of new options and better costing. Running what some in the blogosphere would consider a somewhat hobbled army isn’t helping me, I suppose, but the CSM models are just soooo much fun to convert and create. I’m learning a whole bunch and having fun… I’m just wondering how long I’m going to suck at this DAMNED GAME!
This leads me to a question for my blog visitors:
