Hands down the Imperial Guard have the most annoying stronghold mission in the game. Playing as the Sisters of Battle on Hard, it feels like an exercise in futility. Want to destroy one facility? The endless, fully developed squads, basilisks, sentries, etc, etc. It's just a pain. Too bad the SOB's aerial unit is worthless against structures.
I don't think an intelligent topic is legal on this board any more. -Razum
they're all pretty hard late campaign, but imo Chaos because of the nature of the mission.You gotta go get the shrines, and every time you kill a shrine you get attacked, and most of your troops are like on the other side of the map =/
I played the Sisters my first time and several strongholds irritated me, the eldar one most notably.
My second run through, I'm currently useing the Imperial Guard. Due to my use of basilisks, no stronghold I've attacked so far has been too difficult. I didn't even bother doing half the tau map, I just killed the three beacons and then bombarded their main base from the relic point.
Oh, a little trick for the IG stronghold...
I didn't try it with the convoy point to the northeast, didn't think of it at the time, but when I went after the one to the nothwest, I managed to kill everything there but the farthest back vehical building. I left it there and bulit antivehical turrets just out of range. It continued to spawn convoys and they would be promptly destroyed. All I needed to do was leave a builder there to patch the turrets up from the odd sentiel attack and I could effectively ignore the convoys for the rest of the map.
