Last night I was playing in a 3v3 game, doing pretty well. I had 4 space marine squads with missiles, 3 dreadnoughts and a squad of assault marines and was trying to defend a friend's base.
Then the Eldar player showed up with 3-4 Prism tanks. I couldn't get to his tanks with my dreadnoughts becuase of all the guardians etc... on the ground. My space marines were being bounced everywhere and couldn't seem to do any repspectable damage to them even when they were standing still and firing.
Anyway I was thinking about it and trying to decide how to answer the Fire Prism. These are some ideas I had, please let me know if you have some as well.
1. Assault Marines with Melta Bombs - These may damage a fire prism, but they will not kill it. My guess that it would take two squads to jump in to destroy on of them, then they would get blown away.
2. Vehicle Heavy Weapons - These mostly likely should be things likes Predators(all Las) and Hellfire dreadnoughts with las/missile. Since they do not get bounced around I would think they would be able to take them out.
Thanks and I would appreciate any other ideas.
