Beastclaws, Sylvaneth and various chaos armies (usually with 3-6 stormfiends and 20-40 bloodletters)
On that note, Ogres and Chaos have really been the top armies in recent memory. Probably because of their popularity.
pretty much the armies with broken units in them, yes they are!
Do you have any experience facing 3-6 Stormfiends. I imagine that unit is fairly frustrating to face. You build a list with a bunch of synergy and interesting tactics and then they just pick 6 models that can tunnel and kill almost anything. That's a pretty simple way of looking at it, but it's somewhat true.
Not much you can do, especially in small games. Your best hope is getting a couple of cheap units to put around the rest of your army in rings (some people call it castle-ing up) they have to be 9 inches away from your nearest unit so with a meat shield or two can protect your better units then counter attack. Carnosaur bloodroar really comes in handy against units like that, first time i did it killed 1 stormfiend and the bloodroar made another 3 run away!
This is a good resource for your storm friends, Dealing with threats
Other than that bring a starseer and make him reroll to see if they come up. I have only ever had that work once though.
Great advice. Looking forward to a starseer.
